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 Why use JPEG instead of RAW?
@Imre - This question is much more focused. That question really only asks about the benefits vs downsides of RAW. A few of the answers do bring up the benefits to shooting JPEG but that seems to come secondary to the primary question. In any case thanks for bringing it up as a related question.

comment Will a 18-140 lens be good for basketball stadium photographs?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about rules of a particular venue. It is very specific to your exact venue(and even event at the venue) and likely will not be of use to any other users.

comment Why use JPEG instead of RAW?
The Canon EOS App doesn't even support RAW transfer to mobile devices. It converts it to a low resolution JPEG.

comment Which camera works best with this film?
What camera works best with a certain film depends on what you are trying to achieve, your artistic vision, your requirements, your budget, your skill, etc. Maybe similar to saying, I have a paintbrush, what canvas should I use it with? Well any canvas that suits your needs and "fits" the brush.

Maybe start with File> Convert and Save?

comment Minimum requirements to capture a “Street View”-like photo?
No special equipment is necessary, although of course Google has some unique requirements so obviously has a custom rig. A camera that can take multiple photos, and any number of panoramic software can easily achieve this for personal use.

comment How to flag multiple photos in Lightroom?
It does work, using Lightroom 5 in Windows. Since you have now edited the original question to include OS-X, that changes the question. This answer is for Windows.

comment Canon 70D with Neewer/Godox TT560 flash not working in hot-shoe
I would guess you have the flash in the wrong mode. Read that manual a bit more and you should be able to fix this issue.

comment Any way to bring more detail back in the face in this picture of a man in dim stage lighting?
I would get out a brush tool in your favorite editing software and simply lighten(dodge) the face a bit using an additional layer. The success of this method likely relies a great deal on the ISO and quality of the original RAW file.

comment How to mount a Gopro to DSLR?
You could also use a flash bracket that flips - something like this bhphotovideo.com/c/product/52728-REG/… Flipped all the way it would be in the way of a hotshoe mounted flash, but it can be turned a bit and locked down to any location that suits your need.

comment Photoshop saved window arrangements
Reset settings. Then don't move it like that again.

comment When would I _not_ want to use the content-aware mode of Photoshop's spot healing brush?
This will probably blow your mind, so prepare yourself. The answer is... when it doesn't work for your situation.

comment Why are my pictures so shakey?
Pictures aren't shaky, your camera is. Try a tripod or faster shutter speed.

comment Dynamic range of Sony RX-100
This is why GND filters exist.

comment How to photograph a lightbulb?
I would shoot the bulb with no housing around it(just bare bulb in as small of a base as possible) and with either a black or white background.

comment How can I make a picture like this one of a bridge in green landscape seem less plain?
@RussellMcMahon - I wasn't trying to be brash but the original question did ask "Is this landscape photo boring" and mentioned "Any comments is welcome.". They weren't asking if this picture properly represented their own memory, they were asking if it was boring... i.e. interesting or not to me the viewer.

comment How can I make a picture like this one of a bridge in green landscape seem less plain?
It is just a big blob of green leaves. The bridge is what is interesting and it doesn't fill enough of the frame. It seems like the bridge might be crossing a great void, but I can't see any of it. The dirt at the bottom right of the image doesn't add much. Finally, I don't think you have any true white or black in this image.
