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 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.

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.

comment Canon t3 screen issue
So have you reset to factory settings? Are you in live view or not? Have you looked at the shutter box for obstructions or issues? Can you take a picture of the LCD screen for us to see?

comment Not able to achieve shallow dof with aperture of f/4 in nikond5200
To calculate the depth of field we would need to know what your focal length is. It would also be immensely helpful to simply post an image since this question is about photography afterall. Another option is to use a DOF calculator yourself, here dofmaster.com/dofjs.html

comment Most effective way to get detailed photo of a dog's eyes
Do you already have a camera? What lenses do you have? Are you willing to buy one? What budget? Please clarify. You might also just want to browse the Macro tag here and learn a bit - photo.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/macro

comment Going to Italy - My 7d needs a wide angle lens
I'd get the 10-22mm. It's great and fun for landscapes. If you don't need ultrawide you could get rid of the 18-135 and get the 17-55mm too.

comment Is this file size adequate for jpeg images?
Looks normal to me, you are getting a bit of pixelation but at PS Level 8 you should be fine. 960px isn't huge but for web viewing might be exactly what you want. It certainly is too small for printing though if you intend to do that.

comment How to upload multiple RAW images for processing
What do you mean "uploading"? Do you mean download to your computer?
