comment What workflow should I use for managing model releases?
@pau.estalella - There are exceptions in Spain as well, a lot of which depends on whether or not they're the subject rather than incidental. It is true, however, that one should always seek legal advice before use if you're not sure, but by and large the guidelines I listed above are typical in my experience.

comment Is it possible to print a photo so it can be mounted on a globe?
Slick tool and, if he's on Linux, should be easy to get it going.

comment What's the small white plastic dome on old Pentax lenses?
Thanks for asking that, I always wondered myself...

comment Is 35× zoom the only meaningful difference between the Canon Powershot SX 40HS and Olympus Pen E-PM1?
Adding to that, the lens zoom ratio of 24-840mm equivalent on the Canon option doesn't fill me with confidence on quality. I hate marketing speak for this stuff, 35x zoom is such a useless piece of information.

comment For a novice to flash, what color correction gels would be best to experiment with?
+1 - There's also the Rosco Strobist kit which is a little more expensive, but already cut.

comment Is it important that the Canon 1DX isn't specified to autofocus with lenses slower than f/5.6?
I agree. The lenses listed here are consumer grade lenses, I can't imagine that Canon would even pause for concern about them.

comment Should I upgrade my camera or lens to shoot pro hockey games?
+1 - The fast lens is the first step. Photographers have been shooting hockey for a long time with camera bodies considered antique by today's standard so the secret to that is the lens and, well, the ability to follow the play. :)

comment Will leaving my battery charger plugged in (without battery) harm the charger?
I agree. I leave one of my Pentax battery chargers plugged in all the time, never had an issue.

comment What are the differences between E-TTL, i-TTL, and P-TTL?
No need to suspect differences, they have them! Having said that, I don't have the technical info, so I'll be curious to see what arises with this question.

comment How does optimizer software reduce file size without reducing resolution?
Hi Ali, welcome to the site. While I think there may (though iffy) be people here that can answer that question, it's not really a photography question. It's about software algorithms and is probably better answered on other Stack sites.

comment Would this IR-transparent plastic be useful for blocking unwanted control flash?
@mattdm - You've heard of LBA right? Well, FBA may also be an issue for some... Come to the light side. ;)

comment Would this IR-transparent plastic be useful for blocking unwanted control flash?
@mattdm - Yeah, it's a little slicker looking. Who knows, they maybe they have the form patented and so Nikon can't copy...

comment How much better is a macro ring flash than a “normal” external flash, for macro shots?
@AndreiRinea - It works great, I'm very happy with it, so no regrets. I haven't used it as much as I would have liked, but that's not a reflection of its ability.

comment Why does Canon and Nikon limit or disable autofocus beyond certain f-numbers?
As a fellow Pentax shooter, I can tell you that at narrow apertures, the camera hunts like crazy. You're better off, sometimes, just going manual.

Awesome! Happy to have helped!

comment What style of composition for food photography triggers people's appetite?
Even your tightening of the question leaves it still quite broad, IMHO. I've done some food photography, composition can be several books on its own. Color balance isn't specific to food, and positioning is about composition. All of these are general to photography... keeping food fresh for a shoot, how too shoot cereal, etc. are more answerable questions, I think.

comment Is technical perfection necessary for an artistically awe-inspiring photograph?
I originally voted to close (I can't undo it), but after some thought I realized that you could answer it.
