comment How can I take crisp sharp shots without an expensive lens?
@muntoo-- Yes, aim is necessary to throw properly. Aim is aim. Comes from an old joke-- "Close is only good in horseshoes and hand grenades" (and atomic bombs). #thisisnottwitternohashtagsarenecessary

@jfklein13-- The name of the movie is Smoke (imdb.com/title/tt0114478). Enjoy!

@RussellMcMahon-- personally, I prefer grenades. My aim isn't all that good.

@mattdm-- you should experiment with your own workflow, and what level of degradation you'll allow. I have yet to see the same sharpness from a medium quality jpeg as I can with a properly converted RAW. Even high quality will cause degradation around hair and other fine features that I don't find acceptable; you may not care.

comment What is a good lower-cost alternative for the Nikon 85mm f/1.4 lens?
I second this answer. For me, the 85mm 1.8 is a fantastic alternative. If I had to do it again, though, it might be difficult to compare with the Tamron 90mm. I know the second is a macro lens, but I can't bring myself to buy it and have two lenses in roughly the same range.

comment How does one focus for landscape photos in very dark conditions?
@Evan-- I've used this approach for night shots as well. Typically, I can see nothing through the viewfinder, but on the back after a 5min exposure (for instance), something is visible.

comment Should I have a wedding contract provision for actions outside my control?
My favorite was the other Nikon shooter who had his flash set to slave mode on the channel I was using. His flash never fired when he shot, just when I shot. Glad I was chimping-- I was able to catch the problem before too many shots were ruined.

comment Should I have a wedding contract provision for actions outside my control?
I agree with this completely. This is how I handle my contracts as well, and have actually had a bride walk away from the table because she didn't want to give up her deposit in the 'act of god' case. I'd rather end that business relationship that way than having to follow through with litigation...

comment Where can I see examples of great photos from cheap cameras?
Wow. That guy is doing things with that camera that I did not think were possible. But how well do they print?
