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 Should I really lug around a lens cap everywhere?
The question is title is "should I use lens caps", but you elaborate on the assumption that it is necessary to put something in front of a lens to protect it. This is not necessarily the case. Unless you are in quite challenging conditions daily(i.e. sand, salt water, very abusive things in your bag) then I wouldn't put anything at all in front of your lens. Just store it in a bag with a soft interior and you will be just fine, as I have been for years with daily use.

comment How can I remove shine on someone's face in Lightroom?
The best way it to use Photoshop and the associated cloning tools it offers. LR just isn't going to be quite as good.

comment Self-hosted gallery that will base on existing library structure
This is not about photography.

comment What's the best workflow for shooting stationary objects in a makeshift studio?
What do you mean "workflow"? Typically the term is used here to describe the ingestion of images, organization, storage, post production, and delivery to client. You seem to be wondering what settings to use on the camera? Maybe you should start with the Studio-Setup tag here: photo.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/studio-setup otherwise - nothing is going to beat experience and trying it out. There is no magical setting.

comment Color schemes and perception: If L*-linearity does not imply perceptual intensity linearity, then what is the best metric of perceptual intensity?
I don't understand what this has to do with photography. Maybe I'm just too dumb.

comment What should I look for in a wireless flash trigger for a home studio?
Or a yongnuo flash to save quite a bit over the Canon brand.

comment Will my photo look good as a canvas?
Agreed. It is not going to be an impressive resolution that is for sure. I've just seen people rip off Facebook photos back when the max resolution was around 720px and print to canvas, they thought they looked great. No everyone is as discerning as me or you!

I have printed landscape canvas at 150DPI. Worked well for my purposes.

comment Photography in public places: Is it allowed or needs permission
@user1899082 - Paranoid people certainly can and will do irrational and illegal things related to photography in public. Just because the law is on your side does not mean that people are aware of that. Keep your eyes open and don't be stupid and you shouldn't have issues, but its never a guarantee.

comment Photography in public places: Is it allowed or needs permission
@MichaelClark - That is kind of a stretch as a duplicate, as this question doesn't ask about children specifically at all. Although the top answer from that question obviously covers all of the grounds. Either way this question can help direct users there if it does get closed.

comment Photography in public places: Is it allowed or needs permission
This is a good place to start: aclu.org/free-speech/know-your-rights-photographers Note that this is from another question already on the site: photo.stackexchange.com/questions/1008/… Also, you still have not indicated if you are interested in ethics or legalities. They are not one in the same.

comment Photography in public places: Is it allowed or needs permission
It would help to know what country you are asking about. Also, are you interested in what local law permits or what is ethically acceptable(you added an ethics tag)?

comment Why do digital cameras not have an iso rating?
Have you browsed the ISO tag here at the site? photo.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/iso Namely the existing questions: photo.stackexchange.com/questions/6615/… and photo.stackexchange.com/questions/2946/… ? This might be a good primer if you are quite unfamiliar with it: photo.stackexchange.com/questions/37898/…

comment Should I store unedited/raw, edited, or watermarked images while backing up on DVD/CD?
It all depends on your needs. Did it take you an hour total to get a collection of images from stage 1 to stage 4? Did it take you weeks? The answer to this will help you decide what makes sense. You already concluded that step 4 is minimal effort, but if step 3 took you a significant amount of time or you would have difficulty recreating the edit, then of course back it up. It all depends on your situation and no answer is right for everyone.

comment How can I adjust white balance for many photos by the same amount in Lightroom?
So the question isn't how to batch adjust. The question is how to batch adjust the same amount relative to the original white balance. Correct? I don't believe LR has any built in function to achieve this, but a quick Google search revealed a plug-in that is specifically for Lightroom relative adjustments - photographers-toolbox.com/products/lightroomstatistics/…

comment Why does a small change in focal length of two lenses make a $1000.00 difference in the price?
Technically I don't think we should be posting image like this unless they are CC BY-SA(which I have not confirmed if these are or not but I would imagine not) See this for more info: meta.photo.stackexchange.com/a/1725/4892

I don't like that these images are ripped from rockwell. Mostly because I don't like him.

comment MY canon D1200 doesn't take a picture in AF mode
Canon does not have a D1200 model that I am aware of so I'm assuming you are speaking of the 1200D/T5 model. If the camera is unable to take a picture, are you sure that you are in a situation with enough light and contrast to successfully obtain autofocus lock? What conditions are you shooting in? Try outdoors in bright light. What mode is the camera mode dial in? Green square(auto)? Something else? What do you mean by "when i take pictures of tube lights, the pictures are taken"? What is a tube light?

comment Is using a large aperture with flash uncommon?
You should check out the new Phottix Indra. The HSS is exactly what you are looking for.

comment How well will a Canon 2x extender work with a 60D and 100-400mm L?
I believe with a combination of these two existing questions you should be able to determine what you need to know - photo.stackexchange.com/questions/27496/… and photo.stackexchange.com/questions/16399/…
