    A good change. Hopeful for some innovation here. Overdue.

    Critique Volleyball PIC... a little different

    Team Name in the background is fine. Especially if it is that team. Can you drop the DOF and blur it going forward? Sure but all kinds of things change with that right? :) As Randy says, it is a great shot. Motion on the ball and sharpness elsewhere is very nice. I like the shot. What does...

    RIP Senator Howard Baker, Photographer.

    ^^Typical... No clue. BO is into selfies...no? Senator Baker was a professional in every sense of the word ...and a republican. I enjoyed his work. He will be missed.

    Is there a trick to this kind of Gym Lighting??

    Fluorescent light cycling will drive you nuts. RAW is your friend and post WB adjustments required. Shoot several images of your white card as a reference and use that in post to correct. I did this for friend to show the effect....old pic, but it serves the purpose...sequence of shots under a...

    Another shooting in Milwaukee WI

    Seriously? You do know that gun ownership in Chicago is illegal right? That should be the safest place in the country.... It isn't the guns....it's the people. The number of guns in this country versus the number of "incidents" is remarkable and speaks volumes about the number of...

    Do any of these work for you?

    Can you position them further away form the stands? Perhaps with the scoreboard in the background (home team 5 visitors 0 :) ) and a much shallower depth of field? Perhaps a less exposed darker background? Might want to invest in a canvas background & stand as well, then you can shoot this in...

    slideshows on a Mac | how I do it + a question

    I am running Parallels 4 on Snow Leopard. I am running an older MacPro 3.0 quad core system with 8 GB of RAM. I have the latest revision of PSG...version 4 I believe. I punch out photos from Aperture to a shared drive on my NAS. I move the songs I want to the same directory. Once PSG is...

    Proshow Gold is the standard for this kind of work.....but is PC only and why I have Parallels. The Apple options are all workarounds as you have discovered. I just did the annual gymnastics team show. Eight minutes long and looks great. I can create a file that simply runs on the PC without...

    The 'I Don't Love My Mac' Thread

    That's funny..... I just removed a 1999 Dell Dimension desktop from service three weeks go. Windows XP in a networked environment and running just fine. Just bloated and slow from years of use and ever increasing CPU & RAM requirements. While I appreciate Apples build quality, the 11 year...

    The 'I Don't Love My Mac' Thread

    I run both. Two Macs and a PC at home. 10 pc's here at work. They all run just fine. The interface on PS between the two platforms is identical. My gripes with Apple are pretty straight forward: 1. The RAM requirements are out of this world and costly early on 2. The cost of acquisition is...

    I have Aperture 3.0 running on my Mac pro under Snow Leopard. I also have a Thecus NAS to the computer through a small network. I am seeing numerous directories listed as "offline" I have reconnected these using the utility to do so, but have hit two snags: 1. Some of the "offline"...

    Aperture 3

    Great..... Just after I bought Lightroom. Any other program that needs an update? I'll go buy the competing software, the update will be released within a week. Oh well, another $100 to Apple. Guess I'll go buy more stock.

    Does Canon have an equivalent to NX2?

    Digital Photo Professional....and it is free. I use it exclusively to convert RAW files to JPG's as I don't like shooting JPG's in camera.

    A Few More Basketball Shot...

    I see you are using a center weighted metering mode. With that white wall in the background things may not expose as you might want them to....and as Chris points out be a bit dark. As a suggestion... use a spot meter reading and then set that as a manual exposure setting for the session (or...

    Some Gymnastics (yes with a Canon camera)

    My daughter is supposedly fine...in many respects her knee is better than what it was for many years. Her friend just wants to keep going. The docs say "brace it" and fix it later. She is a coach and quite the competitor and if she can, well, she goes.

    Some Gymnastics (yes with a Canon camera)

    Thanks Chris. I have lost some enthusiasm for this sport. The surgery was real, painful & expensive. Caused somewhat by a pre-existing condition so to speak, but still, these are young kids with some pretty beat up knees. I promised to follow through with pictures and I am doing that...

    Some Gymnastics (yes with a Canon camera)

    I haven't posted here in awhile. As some may know, my daughter had knee surgery for a ruptured MPFL. My daughter is back and I guess I am as well... We have had three meets so far and I am rusty as all get out. In an effort to push out pictures, I have not done any noise reduction. These...

    RAW files in Cover Flow

    OS is Leopard (not Snow leopard yet) I would think they should show automatically as well...but they do not.

    RAW files in Cover Flow

    How do you make the RAW files visible as an image and not an icon in coverflow? I can see the image in the list, but when I view the list using cover flow all I see is the RAW icon. It would be a nice way to cull RAW files prior to any additional PP work to save space and time. Thanks,

    Uberload for lightroom

    I am considering a change to Lightroom from Aperture. One feature I have been hard pressed to find that I like in Aperture is a plugin called Uberload. It is an FTP transfer directly from Aperture to my web server. Once set-up you simply select "export / Uberload" and then "send". The...

    Funny how rare the "help, I'm switching to PC" threads are over on the PC board.

    Maybe becuase, unlike a Mac, they don't need help doing it? Just a thought.

    Stand back, the new Canon pro body's been announced

    Bill beat me to it........ Look, it is a matter of physics of slapping that mirror up and down that often. simple math really....but hey what do I know. The problem still remains.... I want a D3S with a real prime lens line up. The Nikkor primes are old, outdated and slow. I owned them...

    Stand back, the new Canon pro body's been announced

    No, not nonsense. Getting past 10 FPS on full size mirror is an engineering challenge. Dropping mass and size allows for higher rates. You make it sound like a 1.3 is some sort of deficiency... :)

    Stand back, the new Canon pro body's been announced

    Parity perhaps in zooms, but Nikon is not ahead in zoom market. I see little difference between the ones I have and the ones I used from Nikon. Try it in US Dollars from B&H..... Ah yes, comparing apples & oranges. Unfortunately that logoic doesnlt work here...the lenses in question are both...

    Stand back, the new Canon pro body's been announced

    It would be interesting to drop retail prices next to those and compare them to the Canon equivelant (albeit Canon does not have a 200 - 400). The differences are eye opening. ..and truth be told, the NIkkor prime lens line up is very old and dated. I use both systems and the Canon 85...
