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 matching artificial light temperature to ambient light?
You solution is to capture an image then open up the image in photo editing software to determine the RGB values? How would you use the RGB values to determine kelvin temperature?

comment Trying to light my set better: Help?
Sonic, welcome. Did you know that there is a video stack exchange site? Your profile indicates that you have found it before at least. I would recommend asking this question over at that site. Photography is much more common with strobes as opposed to constant but sure you could use this setup for stills. Also, you did a good job of explaining your equipment, but did not describe your problem at all. What do you mean "better"? What is wrong with your current setup that you want to buy more equipment? Maybe an image of the issue and a short description of that?

comment What is the most compact camera/lens setup with movements?
My main question would be, are you truly after both tilt and shift movements? Or could you make due with just one or the other? Are you trying to use shift for architecture, or tilt for the plane of focus? Are you trying to achieve selective focus for miniatures? This will help give better answers as options exist that specifically achieve some of the results above but not others.

comment What workflow will speed up sorting photos stored on a NAS in OS X finder before import into Lightroom?
Better yet, I would use Photo Mechanic. It blows away LR 5 for RAW previews, no question about it. I don't know how I culled a 2,000 image shoot before PM with LR. Kind of like going from Finder to LR, going To PM from LR is worlds faster.

comment Image quality - related to camera or not? Blurry, artificially sharpened images
The fact that your camera chose ISO 2000 proves that there wasn't that much light. Your issue is that this was shot at ISO 2000 and the results are going to be soft and noisy at that ISO with a D90. There is no problem with your camera. Take a shot outside at ISO 100 and examine the same way, you will like it a lot more.

Sorry you feel that I'm being a jerk. This is plain text with only your own implied emphasis or assumptions. You should not assume malicious intent especially as you are not a regular user here. I was simply pointing out the question title does not seem to align with the content. I wouldn't call your issue "workflow" I would call it network trouble that likely would fit better over at the superuser site vs here. All of the detail about your camera, for example why you purchased it does not add to the question and makes for a long story without a very clear question.

That is a really long question for what is essentially "Why is my network and or computer slow"? Also, have you considered using something like smart previews and LightRoom 5?

comment What software should I use to batch cropping images from paper notes?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about scanning non-photographic documents.

comment What to look for in a starter-level off-camera flash?
Isn't the whole idea behind the strobist process to not use TTL; basically ever? I'm assuming the idea behind that would be that TTL isn't going to teach much if anything that you wouldn't learn in the first 5 mins of using manual.

comment What is the difference between Canvera and Karizma wedding albums?
@BartArondson - I don't think it is odd at all. Every album company I've ever worked with offers either "studio albums" at a lower cost or some type of a "test print" to evaluate the quality and color of their process. Printing quality is quite a personal preference and even after reading an indepth review on the internet you could easily be surprised by what you spend hundreds of dollars on. Here is an example from a reputable US option - finaoonline.com/…

You might need to order one of each and give them a try to determine this.

comment What to look for in a starter-level off-camera flash?
Blake - You need to do some reading. Either on the strobist site or here. We have lots of questions that address these things, and this is specifically not an equipment recommendation site. You asked "what to look for" and the answer is really easy for a strobist because all you need is a manual flash of some kind. Beyond that, we can help with learning but not specific equipment really. The learning basics of flash and basics of flash equipment is already covered here quite a bit if you look around. Good luck!

Blake - The Stobist site has directed users towards kits for years and they partner with a few online retailers who provide specific kits as desired.

comment How to recover deleted Lightroom files?
With my own current setup, I could just recover the XMP files from my cloud backup and this would be resolved in seconds. Even if LR didn't perform its own DB backup, the XMPs would have the edits stored per file. The DB itself doesn't have much besides references to the files that can easily be recreated if lost.

comment Is there any difference between cropping an image in ACR vs. Photoshop Elements editor?
"With the latest version of PS" PS or PSE? Important to note here I think.

comment Where can I buy a 77mm 12 - 15 stop ND filter at a reasonable price.
@Jakub - If you miss the rear gel option, I'll gladly trade you my 17-40 for your 16-35 ;)

comment Nikon D5200 Auto-Focus problems though working with live-view
If it doesn't happen with other lenses, your lens is broken. Send it in for repair or get a new one.
