comment Why do people recommend 50mm or other prime lenses as starting lenses for learning photography?
@jextee I didn't say the 50 f/1.8 is the only affordable fixed focus lens, I said it's the only affordable f/1.8 lens. Which it is, the only thing that comes close is the Nikon 35 f/1.8 which is over double the price!

comment When removing a lens, does Image Stabilization need to be turned off on the lens?
@cabbey There's nothing in the 20D manual about turning the camera off when changing lenses, if it was important I'm sure Canon would mention it!

comment How do I achieve a yellowish retro picture color?
The car is CG, the model was probably shot in a studio, thankfully it's just the colours you want to emulate as the whole thing looks awful to me.

comment How should I light 2d artwork in a makeshift studio? What lighting products do I need?
It depends on the art, but most of the time a hard point source will be best.

Yes I meant a continuous source. It's not ideal, it really depends on your budget. You want either an incandescent bulb (i.e. a non energy saver) or a florescent specifically designed for photography. More than one light is helpful for an even coverage, to do it with one light you need to place your lightsource a decent distance away which reduces the power output...

comment What are the advantages and disadvantages of grids vs. snoots for light control?
@lindes It depends somewhat on the relative lengths of the mods, I'll try and draw a diagram explaining what's going on, but in the meantime here's a good writeup of what the mods do: blog.nikonians.org/martin_joergensen/2008/07/…

comment How to avoid lens flare?
Whilst the phenomenon you describe is caused by reflections in the lens the term most often used is lens flare

In that case you can still stand further away and crop your images. If you have space a telephoto almost always makes panning easier as it smoothes out the subject motion.
