    dynamic range & why you should shoot RAW

    Original blog post The Nikon D90 has very impressive dynamic range! This before and after comparison of a very contrasty scene shows the amount of information the D90’s sensor was able to capture and keep in its RAW files. Check out all of the detail and color that I was able to recover...

    CLS, TTL and Vivitar DF383

    I want to start using CLS, but in the auto (TTL) mode. I know the Vivitar DF383 supports TTL and can be set as a slave, but will it work in TTL mode as a slave w/ CLS? Ideally, my pop-up flash would tell the 383 to do its preflash sequence, then the photo would happen with the appropriate...

    monitor calibration problems

    I already tried out a Huey, but I tried two and both had the famous magenta cast, so I just returned for a refund. So now I have the Spyder2 Express. Definitely easy to use, but I'm not sold on its accuracy. On my home LCD, the color temperature looks way to warm - especially in the grays...

    our yellow lab, Holly, and our aging cat, Zippy. I tried to capture the old age and sickness in the pictures of the cat. as sad as it is, he is an old and very wise cat and has been through a lot...(you can see his shaved arms from being in the hospital lately)...I wanted the shots to reflect...

    handle for Nikon SB-xxx flashes?

    Is there a handle I can get (or possibly make) for Nikon SB-xxx flashes? I want to either use wireless triggers or an extension cord and then be able to hold my flash at different angles. I do lots of even photography, and usually a straight-on flash isn't the best option. Or am I better off...

    noise reduction in LR... a better way???

    I have to process lots and lots of photos in Lightroom...and I love LR for this. It works great for tweaking many many things. Except noise reduction. Don't get me wrong - it's not HORRIBLE at it, especially the color noise reduction. I think THAT'S pretty good. But the luminance noise...

    So far, so good. GREAT bag...especially when you're used to carrying everything on one shoulder. D50 body + 55-200, 28-80, 50 lenses + sb400 flash + a bunch of filters + batteries + cleaning stuff = still LOTS of room to...

    quantary vs. hoya

    I've noticed that the regular multicoated Skylight 1A filters for both of these brands are about the same prices (within a couple dollars of each other). Are they the same quality? Some people have told me quantaray filters are crappy, but I haven't heard from someone with actual experience...
