Photographer, tech head, and extreme sport enthusiast.

I'm an amateur who likes to shoot everything from portraits to landscapes. My favorite venues are half way up a 14k mountain, Ontario in Fall, and the Mediterranean at sunset.

I love talking technology, new equipment, and Canon lenses.

comment How to light a product like the Apple Watch?
This question is far to broad. Sorry but do you really think this is simple? Take a look at theverge.com/2013/5/8/4311868/…

comment Which current Canon digital cameras can use older EOS lenses?
Note - A specific camera recommendation on what to buy is typically off topic here. See our Help section at the top of this page for more info and what is on topic here.

comment How does the Nikkor 35mm prime compare to the Nikkor 40mm Micro for portraits?
You used the word "portraits" three times in your initial question and you are rarely going to use it for that? I don't know how we could reasonably be expected to answer your question without that information.

comment What are the options for a good photo / RAW browser + editor for mac?
The answer is.... Lightroom! Why? Personal preference! Want more? Just download some trials, and give them a try for yourself.

comment How can I best use a (high end) point and shoot camera to take great photos in bars and clubs?
Use a flash. If you won't, high ISO with max apertures. It's a simple formula.

comment How can a super tiny iPhone 6 Plus lens produce significant DOF?
I assure you that an iPhone 6 Plus is capable of the example image. I own it and can produce similar results without software manipulation.

comment LightRoom 5 Export looks different to the Develop screen
In the link I have above in my answer it notes "In the Develop module, you can also use the Soft Proofing panel to preview how color looks under various color-managed printing conditions.". So yes you can modify your color space in the Develop module if desired. That has implications that are a bit outside of the scope of this question though(or at least that I'm willing to elaborate on to a reasonable extent here).

comment LightRoom 5 Export looks different to the Develop screen
They don't "automatically" convert to a color space on export, they convert to the color space that you select upon export. Also, different modules of Lightroom can use different color spaces, so its not a blanket statement that LR uses Adobe RGB.

comment How to do 1 or more photos per second without jitter using a Canon 7D?
Have you tried a hardware intervalometer? I don't see why the need for software when a $12 piece of non-OEM hardware should accomplish this quite well.

comment PS Elements vs Lightroom for image management
I'm not exactly clear what you want to keep from the Elements DB and move to LR that won't be in metadata? They are very different tools in that Elements is a destructive editor and LR is non-destructive. The LR DB tools are very powerful and I would be surprised to find out that much if any benefit exists to keeping the DB in Elements beyond the facial recognition feature. I also don't see what would be daunting about starting LR up and creating a new DB to point at the 40k images. Please explain further, and if you haven't download a trial and test out some of these theories and report back.
