I recently purchased a Nikon D810. I use back button focusing all the time, mostly single servo (AF-S Single), where the AF-ON button serves as my button to get focus, and then I fire the shutter away to take a photo.
When shooting outdoor portraiture, this setup is fine as natural light...
Does anyone know what type of reflector stand this is?
I saw this at a photography workshop a long while back, and I didn't think anything of it at the time.
It tilts, has the reflector built into the stand, and models can literally rest their arms on it.
I'm sure this is an easy answer for...
Friend wanted a few photos in her kitchen for a food blog. I'm very new to portrait photography, and the previous thread I posted with my first ever model shoot gave me very good feedback to improve.
I welcome any input on these shots:

I primarily shoot landscapes and have never done portrait photography. I'm really new at this, but recently, I picked up a cheap lighting kit on Craigslist just to play around, and took a few shots.
I would welcome any feedback:

If so, I have some specific HELP I need with this lens.
I just purchased this item from Amazon *new*, but it sure looks like the one I received is used.
All items appear new, but the warranty card is perforated and only about the size of a 3"x5" card, and there's no section to mail in any form...
Got a new fisheye lens and took it out for the first time today for some sample pics:

Found an abandoned building this weekend...fun!
Had to avoid the cops, looters (one who scared the living *&^& outta me inside) and also had to avoid falling through the top floor (not easy!) but here are a few I snapped this weekend from this large set:

Here's a 10-shot photo contest from the Port of Oakland, highlighting the anniversary of the 75th Anniversary of the GG Bridge:
The theme - GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE TO OAKLAND: INTERNATIONAL TRADE - underscores the fact that every container ship that calls the Port of Oakland travels under the...
Took a few shots yesterday around the Stanford University campus.

(If you look closely at this one, I got the shot right before the bride was about to enter the chruch for her wedding.)
Took a few shots this AM, feel free to C&C them.

Ok, here are a few of a series from a spot near my place called Fairyland.
No, not the The Castro, it's a children's park off Lake Merritt in Oakland, CA.
Anyway here are a few for C&C of the front:

Finally got an off-camera wireless trigger system for my Sb-600 flash.
Like probably everyone else on the planet, I shot some pics of smoke. :mrgreen:
I know, I know, it's been done before. But I wanted to play around with these in Photoshop to hopefully mix up the subject matter a bit.
Went back to take some more car pics last night.
Taken late at night by myself in an abandoned parking garage in downtown Oakland…what could possibly go wrong? :lmao:
These were HDR processed from 9 different shots of various exposures.
Nothing says "fun" like standing by yourself in an...
I normally don't really like "postcard" type shots of one of the most photographed items in the world, but I just read that some ugly scaffolding is going up this week as part of a three year retrofit project on the Golden Gate.
Here are a few for C&C:

Finally got around to taking some shots of my car.
I did a bit of HDR processing and post tweaking to these to give them this look.
