    Looking forward to this. So far I can't get the video to play, but I'll come back and try again. Justin's videos are always excellent. EDIT: Finally saw the video. As always, Justin does a great job of filming and narrating.

    Inspiring photography comparison.

    I found that interesting as well. The sky looked much better to me with the D850.

    Inspiring photography comparison.

    I like this, Desmond. Aside from the Godox ad (which I don't mind at all) it's an excellent reminder that controlling light is what it's all about. By the way, I was able to guess which camera took which photo. Wasn't too hard.

    Can't really write anything that hasn't already been written. I'm as amazed and appreciative of these photos as I can possibly be. Karen, thank you for sharing them. I can only imagine seeing this in person. It had to look totally unreal!

    Critique Podcast Cover Photo

    Oh, man, Nick, you're right! I posted this in February. Oh well. Thanks for remembering! I just thought for some reason I had never posted it so I never even bothered to check to confirm. That'll teach me!

    Critique Podcast Cover Photo

    I shot this series of photos a while back for a podcast. Always meant to post it here, but think I forgot to. Since I'm not a portrait photographer I worried about doing this right. Ended up doing it in a blacked-out room with a single, steady light source. A work lamp. It was requested to be...

    Share Photographing Photographers - Part II

    I had completely forgotten about this photo I took. No, it's not a dead body lying by the train tracks. It's another photographer with me on a photowalk of our town. She wanted a more interesting perspective. She obviously caused a few concerned people to gather while she lay still to get the...

    Critique Pennsylvania State Capitol

    Glenn! You were in my back yard, man! Great photo! And yes, I agree. It's a beautiful chamber. I don't have anything else to compare it to but I've been in it and it's jaw-dropping. Next time you're in Central PA hit me up. I'll buy you lunch, a beverage, or shoot the breeze.

    Great shots, Randy. Yeah, RenFaires are excellent places to take candids and spur-of-the-moment portraits. People go to see and be seen and love showing off their garb. As a former cast member of the Pennsylvania RenFaire I can attest to that!

    Imagine one of these in Desmond's hands . . .

    Probably invented by his grandfather. ;)

    Critique Posing Great Egret

    I'm on the fence about the grass (although I lean towards removing it). Otherwise a beautiful shot. I wonder how it would look in a different aspect ration (more of a vertical) with the grass removed?

    Great blue heron

    Nice set, George. These guys are fun to shoot. They're always doing something interesting, and it's just a matter of being there and being prepared. Love the gull, too!

    You must speak his language, Randy. You got him to preen for you. Nice set!

    Example of why I buy from B&H

    Yep, Mike, this is my general experience with B&H. I always feel I get a fair shake from them. It's amazing, considering the amount of business they do. They could just totally not care about the little guys, but their standards are extremely high, and they are excellent.

    Nice shots! I'm going to be visiting the museum for my first time, in August. Looking forward to seeing everything.

    You'd think that the fact they're being strafed would cause them to scatter. Oh well! :D

    Back to the DSLR

    Louis, the best camera is the one you have with you...if it's one you like to use and feel confident in. I had similar issues with mirrorless cameras and still haven't felt confident in them, so I'm using my D500 (or iPhone!) for travel photography. But that aside, I loved you photos of...

    Fitness ...what else ;)

    These latest sets are once again, amazing. The first shot in post #616 is my favorite. Just perfection. I did finally find something that doesn't sit well with me in one of your photos though - and it surprised me. The shot in post #617 is a nice pose and theylook good...except his pecs. That...

    Liquid snow

    Well all I can say is these people are serious bada**es! I know they work their way up to things like this over many years of experience, but I look at that water and just think, "Nope!". Lol! Great new shots here as well. You've got some mad skills and obviously know the sport well in order...

    Liquid snow

    Going through the series I'm thinking, "Oh, that's cool. That's cool. Very cool. Wow, cool! WHAT THE???...!!!" I know these people know what they're doing, but for me that activity comes under the heading of "Never, EVER". Lol! Nice shots. Thanks for sharing them. Great use of shutter speed...

    f1.6 at 30mph

    I agree with Randy. Those pics are like the perfect ad for the lens. Good technique, coupled with good glass = great photos. Thanks for sharing and reminding us that with some effort, this is possible!

    Fitness ...what else ;)

    I enjoy seeing your behind the scenes extras. They demonstrate just how much professionalism and effort go into your work. Plus, look at that core workout you get lying on your back in a crunch position! Lol!
