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 Is there any difference in image stabilization in smartphone camera and DSLR camera?
From memory I thought the iPhone 6 Plus only used OIS in video and not stills?

comment What lens is best for a red carpet community event?
Overall, I want you to know why I answered like this and am looking for you to apply a bit of knowledge to the situation. I think you can do it!

comment What lens is best for a red carpet community event?
The point of my answer is not to only answer your narrow situation but rather to share information that can be used and applied to both you and others in a similar but different situation. You may need to do some simple math to take the focal lengths I suggested and apply them to your situation for example. You may also need to consider the equipment I mentioned that you don't own, and why I would use it to see if you can achieve similar results with equipment you do own(why a flash bracket? For example).

Things I probably should remember from my photography education; but do not :)

comment Polarizing filter causing soft, hazy shots?
@AaronLewisPhotography This may answer your question - What are the consequences of stacking a circular polarizer on top of a UV filter?

Michael - The value or lack of value that a UV filter offers has been discussed and debated on this site already in many forms, I'd suggest not re-introducing it here.

comment What lens is best for a red carpet community event?
Ok maybe I'm just confused by your grammar and word usage. Even so, I am doubtful a 90mm lens(especially on a crop sensor) is going to be all that useful at a small event such as this. If there was a crowd of photographers it would be useful, or if the "carpet" was long and you wanted shots of guests moving across it, but this event doesn't sound like that.

comment What lens is best for a red carpet community event?
I'm so confused by this answer. Why is a fixed focal length lens critical for this type of shot? Why would a red carpet style shot have the subject moving fast?

You basically answered the linked to question and not really this one.

Brooke - Maybe some basic info like, budget, size/weight desired, what you want to photograph, etc. would be useful at a minimum. Also, keep in mind this is not a product recommendation website, see the help link at the top of this page and also try utilizing our search to answer your question before posting. Probably start with: photo.stackexchange.com/questions/2876/… if you are interested in a DSLR(which I have no idea about since you did not say at all).

comment Focus specifics in Samsung s5
Correct. Most modern smartphone cameras are capable of producing bokeh at close distances. Also, saying you need a "larger camera to [produce bokeh]" is quite misleading and id say incorrect.

Distance to subject.

For a minute I thought the image was something you were suggesting he purchases and not just an example of good lighting lol.

comment Can I limit Lightroom's CPU usage for preview rendering to a single core?
Cull using Photo Mechanic and you wont have to generate previews for 2,000 images. And culling full size images in PM is a treat. Once you do need to generate previews, take a coffee break and come back :)

comment Unable to get crisp lights on buildings during pictures of cityscapes at night
Was the second image captured on a bridge? Could the bridge be vibrating at all due to traffic or something else?

comment How to get the “Instagram filter like effect” this photos have?
Take a look at: how to achieve this washed out processing effect and What kind of color treatment is applied to these Sean Flanigan photos? and How can I recreate the Instagram Filter “Slumber”? to start, but we have many more examples here.

comment How to get the “Instagram filter like effect” this photos have?
First off, I believe that this is a still image taken from the music video for the song "Thift Shop". It can be viewed here: youtu.be/QK8mJJJvaes?t=2m24s - Second, I don't see what this has to do with Instagram. There is no "Macklemore" Instagram filter, at least in the current version of the app for iOS. Finally, this is probably already answered at this site, and with a bit of tag searching I bet one could find it.
