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 What workflow will speed up sorting photos stored on a NAS in OS X finder before import into Lightroom?
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!

comment What to look for in a starter-level off-camera flash?
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.

comment can i transform my manual focus lens into an autofocus lens?
You might be able to transform a manual focus lens into an autofocus lens simply by flipping the focus switch on the side of the lens if you have not already done so.

comment How can I remove banding noise from this image?
Lol a photo of a photo on a screen. Can you upload the photo vs taking a picture of your monitor?

Probably a good idea to indicate what camera you have.

comment How to remove fog while shooting and during post-processing?
Lol can't fathom? You have almost no reputation at this site, and this isn't a comedy club. I don't see why it should be read any other way. Basically I don't think this tongue in cheek answer adds much of anything to the conversation.

comment Should I upgrade my body or lens first?
Small anecdote - When I was first getting started with Digital Photography, I had a very inexpensive point and shoot that I used until the shutter release literally fell off! It didn't have full manual controls, so instead I learned each and every creative mode that it offered and how it impacted exposure and why. The last thing I was worried about was the quality of the glass at that time, and I'm glad for it. Even after 10 years of being serious about photography, I still can't do justice to the expensive equipment I have!

comment Should i spend on upgrading my Beginner Camera or go for a new Lens instead?
@PhilipKendall - On that duplicate I added a comment about two years ago with the same basic idea, but not as an answer. I'll add one! Thanks.

Do you have a reference to substantiate those percentage claims?
