comment What kind of earplugs are best for concert photography?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about earplugs and not photography.

comment What studio strobes are good for a beginner?
@inkista - I'm aware. eBay is your friend :) Also, I wanted to generalize my recommendation for those that aren't in such a predicament. Nonetheless thanks for bringing that up. Either way, I'd still get PCB. There's nothing else like it that is as awesome for such a great price.

I see no difference but if you say so, ok.

comment Why are images exported from Lightroom 6 different from the preview?
It is important to note which module/tab of Lightroom you are seeing the image as "acceptable". Is it Develop or Library? In the Develop module, by default Lightroom displays previews using the ProPhoto RGB color space for example. Please expand.

comment Is a Sigma 18-50mm or Canon 28-105mm lens better for group shots, and why?
Roman, the maximum aperture on you Canon lens varies over the zoom/focal range. The sigmas does not. That is a significant difference.

comment Is a Sigma 18-50mm or Canon 28-105mm lens better for group shots, and why?
Based on the edit, it sounds like you just need to understand the differences between your two lenses. That's a pretty easy question. One is variable aperture one is constant, one covers longer focal lengths. Those are the basics.

@MichaelClark good point I clarified that.

comment How to choose a camera for photogrammetry?
So you want high resolution, sharpness, low noise, and low distortion? Those all seem like topics that are covered here already, although in separate questions since they are huge topics.

Are you interested in this from an academic perspective or practical?

comment How can I get real estate images wider than 18mm (on an entry level Nikon)?
Possible duplicate of What to look for in a wide angle lens?. Welcome to the site Matthew! Note that specific product recommendations are generally off topic here. We try to provide users the knowledge to make their own decisions on buying equipment vs point at specific models. The linked to answer I've provided should do exactly that. See my own answer on that question.

comment What photography magazines exist for professionals?
I don't believe those are the current CPS Silver membership requirements. It is based on points now and for Silver you need 10 points. You could easily get that with 1 body and 1 lens for example. See cps.usa.canon.com/about_cps/about.shtml

comment Would a 55-200mm lens for an entry-level DSLR be good for snowboarding photography?
Snowboarders usually do their thing in quite bright conditions. Not sure that the max aperture will be all that limiting here unless he wants to shoot at dusk/dawn.

comment Desktop Darkroom?
I don't think a 3D printer movement is going to result in a darkroom you can fit on your desk.

comment What type of lens equipment would work well for portraits of makeup clients? Is a standard 18-55mm enough?
@Rafael - It can create a certain type of look that is quite common in fashion. If the OP desires this look or not is up to them. See the first and second linked to questions I provided for more info or to add your own answer on that specific topic. Moreover, the question noted that they want to document before/after makeup. It's quite possible that they want to actually show off each blemish before and the lack of blemishes after. I'm not suggesting at all that a ring flash is the end all answer, that's why I provided many more links to help here.

comment Focus Issues With L-Series Lens
I would lean towards the incompetent repair facility argument. I had a similar issue and after about 8 trips to the repair facility I gave up and sold the lens as defective and moved on.

comment What type of lens equipment would work well for portraits of makeup clients? Is a standard 18-55mm enough?
Ashley - Welcome to the site! This is not an equipment recommendation website or a shopping site per say. We much would prefer to help give you the knowledge necessary to purchase what works well for you vs give you the name of model XYZ. I know that this seems really odd for a photography site, but I would highly recommend editing your question to ask "What type of equipment would work well for portraits of makeup clients?" or similar. Focus on what type of equipment and techniques are necessary, not links to Amazon or specific models. Thx!
