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 What's the balance of highlights, shadows, lights, and darks in this photo?
Are you assuming this look was achieved in post production? Why? I see nothing that couldn't have been achieved without any processing.

comment What setting do I use for a 70-300 lens?
Matt is right about an example image. Please link to a full size one with the EXIF intact on a site such as Flickr or your personal portfolio. Are you sure the issue isn't heat waves? I often run into that when shooting ships on Lake Superior.

comment Do images need special treatment for high-resolution (“retina”) displays vs regular displays?
Please avoid extended conversations in the comments section of a question or answer. That is exactly why we have a chat room. More info: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/95937/…

comment What kind of a Polaroid 600-camera is this?
It's actually closer to the Sun600 LMS then the OneStep600. I have both on my shelf and can confirm :)

Take a look at the term "kill the ambient" here: photo.stackexchange.com/questions/18537/…

comment How can I avoid noise (white dots all over the picture) with GoPro Hero4's nightlapse mode?
Please post an example image to a photo hosting website and link to it here. A full size image would be preferred if possible. Also please edit your post to include the important settings such as ISO selected and shutter speed. Finally, please describe what exactly you are trying to capture. Are you shooting stars, city lights, cars, etc?

comment Switching lens on Nikon D3100
Basically what you are looking for is termed "superzoom". We already have a question here that should help you: photo.stackexchange.com/questions/2134/…

comment Which Canon lens should I get for portraits/weddings?
Yeah that's a popular one too Bill. I just find the f/4 too limiting for my preferences.

comment “Getting Started with Lightroom Mobile” popup disappears before I can click on it!
Change the identity plate to something that isn't an advertisement. First thing I did with LR5.

comment Beginner User DSLR choices
The differentiators between these models are so minimal it truly doesn't matter. Buy one and use it!

comment Why do I get blurry pictures when I take a lens attachment off?
Nikon D3300 I'm assuming. Canon does not have a model D3300 that I'm aware of.

comment How to choose a camera for taking passport photos?
Why 5MP? Can you explain that? Why not 4MP? 2?

comment How to choose a camera for taking passport photos?
The sensor size has virtually no impact on if a passport photo will be accepted or not. You could likely capture the necessary image with the absolute worst equipment you could find and it would still work. Just read the requirements you linked to and compose properly, and you will be fine.

comment Focus specifics in Samsung s5
I don't disagree that at 2 meters a cell phone can't do it. You misread my comment.
