comment Best way to take self photographs
From a quick search on the internet it seems the preferred method for shooting a self-portrait is to hold your smartphone at arms length and make an idiotic "duck face"

comment Licensing for wedding photos, to protect photographer, but allow freedom to clients?
@jwenting - your employer does not automatically own what you do, but, your contract probably have a clause specifying this is a "work for hire" and that makes your employer the owner. I'm also employed as a software engineer, and I also own my own software company - I'm always very careful about the exact wording of my contracts or else the IP condition can get, well, interesting.

comment Licensing for wedding photos, to protect photographer, but allow freedom to clients?
@jwenting (cont) .... however, for (non-commercial) event photography, those are irreplaceable private images of me any my family - usage restrictions, reusing the images without my permission and telling me that's how creative professional work is just offensive (this is one of those "context is everything" situations).

@jwenting - it's not that simple, in the commercial world it's common to charge for "usage" - if want a low-res image for the web site you pay less, a image that will be printed in high quality you pay more, image that will be used for a short time you ay less, image that will be used forever you pay more, etc. - this is actually a fair model that allows the customer to pay what the image is worth to him/her (based on how much the image will be used) and also lets the photographer reuse the image to get some much needed extra cash from the cheaper jobs ....

comment What is a better marriage for my Canon 70-300 L lens: A 7D or 5d Mark iii?
@MichaelClark - that's what I said - the 70D has a better sensor (even if I'm not allowed to talk about one of the things that make it better) but it's less rugged - like I said in the first line of the answer "Everything in life is a tradeoff" - I never said the 70D is a better camera, only that it's worth considering. (if it was me, and I had the budget for a 5Dmk3 (I don't) and I could live without the extra reach of the crop sensor (not relevant, because of the budget issue) I would have bought the 5Dmk3, but that's me, everyone has different priorities and can make different tradeoffs)

comment What is a better marriage for my Canon 70-300 L lens: A 7D or 5d Mark iii?
@MichaelClark - according to the DXO labs score the 70D is slightly (negligibly?) better in every way (except DR below ISO 800 where the 7D is slightly (again, negligibly?) better) - so with the 70D you get basically the same performance at an higher resolution + video auto focus as a bonus all for $300 less - I stand by my previous claim that the 70D's sensor is newer, better and cheaper

comment How to protect lens from fungus
total protection? first use powerful UV light to kill anything that may be already in the lens, than seal it in an air tight container (that you also sterilized using UV light) and never take it out of the bag (especially don't attach it to the camera and use it).

comment Why is F/8-F/11 called a “Who cares aperture”?
@PhilipKendall - f/5.6 to f/8 is true for APS-C and high megapixel 35mm FF cameras (and probably also MFT, didn't really do the math) - I sort of assume this covers most of the readers of this site who ask about aperture (especially when the question talk about f/32, f/32 is a very nice mid-range aperture for medium format but I don't expect it to even be an option on 1/2.3")
