comment Why are all my photos overexposed?
Even if the "wrong" metering mode was in use, I'd expect some part of the image to be at least vaguely correctly exposed, but here the whole image is massively overexposed.

comment Why are all my photos overexposed?
Do you get correct exposure if you shoot with the lens wide open? If so, that would strongly imply the aperture mechanism is broken.I

comment What is a good Nikon camera body for a food photographer?
Can you explain what it is about your current camera which is restricting your photography?

comment 50mm f/1.4 versus 85mm f/1.8 with APS-C for portraits?
Note that things like "better bokeh" are very lens dependent - if you use the Canon 50mm f/1.8 you'll get nasty pentagonal bokeh, but you'll get something much nicer if you use a Leica lens.

comment Canon 700D - 1 STM lens or 2 non-STM lenses for a beginner?
The only thing we can help you with in understanding the difference between the two deals, and it seems you understand that pretty well already - which one is the right decision for you is something only you can decide as everybody's priorities are different.

@BobT "but I think [...]". You are correct.

You should edit this into the question rather than posting it as an answer.

comment How can I light a park gazebo for a portrait session at noon?
Rephrasing the title doesn't really change anything - the question is still too open-ended for this site.

comment How do I prevent my camera/lens from focusing on only a subject?
I know that may not sound like this is a duplicate of that question, but actually it is - if you want a large amount of scene in focus, it's the aperture you care about, not the focusing or the focus mode.

comment Why do my RAW (.nef) files have a reddish hue in Picasa 3?
Before shelling out any cash, you should probably at least consider downloading the free Capture NX-D.

Potentially related: Why is Picasa ruining my raw files. Looks like a very similar effect, although a completely different camera.

comment How to prevent hot pixels?
@MarkFisher The accepted answer to the duplicate is to solve the problem in camera, so I'd say they're close enough.

comment How to find the serial number for a Canon G1X if it has rubbed off
In my case, Lightroom but I'm sure you can pull them out with exiftool or similar.

comment How to find the serial number for a Canon G1X if it has rubbed off
My 550D writes the serial number into the RAW files it creates; have you looked at those?

comment Entry Level Flush Mount Photo Books
As with other areas, our standards on this have evolved over the years; just because a question was on-topic 4 years ago doesn't mean it's on topic today.

Service recommendations are off-topic here.

comment How does ISO setting change CCD/CMOS sensor behavior?
@EquipDev Please don't delete the question. It will stay around marked as duplicate - these are helpful for people searching as you may well have used different terms, keywords etc to the earlier questions and this can then act as a "signpost" to the earlier questions.

comment Remove all metadata from PNG, commandline
@OneSolitaryNoob we're happy to help with image processing questions when they're related to photography, but general image processing questions are off-topic.

comment Remove all metadata from PNG, commandline
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is unrelated to photography. Try SuperUser instead.

@chuqui - any chance you could add a brief summary of your blog post to this answer?
