Some pictures I've done

comment What sort of camera do I need for product photography?
That's a terrible duplicate question - it addresses background color, tripod heads, and reflector colors. Not at all what he's asking here.

comment Is this photo showing lenses apparently hanging in the air a Photoshopped composite, or was some other trick used?
I would encourage you to post a comment on his picture and ask directly.

Pentax users have super powers, its a well established fact.

comment Why pay for specialist studio photography lighting aka strobes when you can use continuous light sources which are more powerful and cheaper?
I think you're vastly underestimating the light output from strobes. It's almost always much more than continuous lights. My single middle teir hotshoe flash can light up my entire 2 story living room to shoot at a low ISO, but if I crank up all the lightbulbs in the house, I wouldn't get close.

comment How to handle publicly sharing family photos (especially kids) online?
@Rarst - wonderful :) Glad it could help.

comment Is image stabilization a necessary feature for wide angle lenses?
+1 - and as an example of a whole type of photography that may find it useful. Indoor shots of architecture and buildings. If a tripod is allow there, great - but many historic, touristy building don't allow them.

comment First Wedding - What to charge?
There's some extremely similar questions already on the site - photo.stackexchange.com/questions/30205/… and photo.stackexchange.com/questions/39917/… for example. This very well may get closed as a duplicate of them. Regardless of that, I HIGHLY encourage you to make a contract, in writing, about your deliverables and your pay.

comment Why are phase detect lenses adapted onto contrast detect bodies so much slower?
If it needed pre-knowledge, then every time you bought a newly released lens with an older camera, the AF would be drastically slow till a camera firmware update.

So, its not that the camera doesn't "know the lens well", implying some sort of pre-knowledge- its tha the camera probably doesn't speak the full 'language' of the lens

... are you sure that's not just part of the mount specification? I don't think the camera has to have a database of all lenses - surely that's part of the electrical information that passes between the mount?

"knows the lens well" - what do you mean by that?

comment What are the biggest differences between Reversal Rings, Extension Tubes and Macro Lenses?
For anybody reading this: Take a cardboard tube (the inside of a toilet paper roll is perfect) and cut it to length to fit your extension tubes. Pop it in and it completely clears up the haze.

comment What settings do I need to use for interior shots so the lights don't look flared/streaky?
What lens are you using here?

Got some extension tubes today and remembered reading this about center haze. Sure enough got massive haze! I'm going to try lining the inside of the tubes with something less reflective.

Sorry, wish I could help more, but I've never done film work.
