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 do I prepare best for my first wedding photography event?
Russell - Yes I agree; but your point also brings up the fact that this question in that form is far too localized and unlikely to help anyone else in the future. If the question is so specific "I have XYZ camera and XYZ lenses" then who will it ever help? It would get voted to close oblivion for another reason. We already have plenty of Q & A that answers the meat behind this in my opinion.

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it seems to be a better fit for superuser.com

comment Getting a sharp focus on a 50mm when the subject is at 5m - 10m
The main issue here appears to be the slow shutter speed that you selected but the image you posted is also very low quality and introduced a great amount of artifacts due to the compression used. I would advise posting a full size image preferably with the EXIF data intact on this and future questions. Also see: Are there general rules for selecting the correct shutter speed and ISO in manual mode?

comment I'm having trouble recovering a deleted image. Much older deleted images are showing up in the program, but not this one which was erased yesterday
photo.stackexchange.com/q/1125/4892 - Try another option. PhotoRec for example.

Could you post an example of this effect?

comment Why don't manufacturers include shutter count in the camera menus?
@DanWolfgang he is likely referring to recent events with magic lantern. It's quite an unfortunate situation and I do know of some professional videographers who are pulling back usage of the firmware - petapixel.com/2015/04/14/…

Ask. Then repeat.

comment Why don't manufacturers include shutter count in the camera menus?
Why exactly would they offer shutter count as a feature? Is it going to help sell more units? Are you sure that no camera manufactures do include this functionality and make it as hard as you describe(hint:no).

comment What do I need to do to take Aurora borealis photos by iPhone4S?
Aaron. I get your point. I've lived in Duluth MN and now live further south in Minneapolis. Thanks.

comment What do I need to do to take Aurora borealis photos by iPhone4S?
@Aaron - Yes it varies of course on your distance from light sources and just pure luck! But using an iPhone you will certainly need all of the best luck you can get!

comment Editing and saving RAW files, and the relationship to the XMP sidecar files
Ya I knew you knew but I'm just afraid that people might assume LR is doing something that I don't believe is default behavior and can really be a shock for some when it comes to backup/restores!

comment Editing and saving RAW files, and the relationship to the XMP sidecar files
Lightroom has the option to store changes to sidecar files. It can also save edits in its library/database so keep that in mind.

I find it comical that all of the answers thus far have taken this question way beyond the simple :)

comment Is there a trick to the right exposure for sky photos?
This is very related: What camera settings should be used to capture sky shots without over exposing the clouds?.
