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 For maximizing photo adjustment performance, which hardware upgrades matter most?
After the recent news(apple to cease development of Aperture), I don't know if I would focus on hardware upgrades for that suite. Just a thought. See also: photo.stackexchange.com/questions/52371/…

comment Is this blue tint because of the film or the process?
@OlinLathrop - The user did previously explain exactly why he is using film in the first line of his first question on this site: "I would like to try out photography in Black and White, specifically because it just has an awesome contrast and makes the motive "pop" in a certain way that color just detracts from (or maybe I have just discovered how much I like Ansel Adams' photos)." I also linked to this in my comment above, where I suggested you add your negative sentiment instead. Overall I just don't think your comment is necessary, I believe they are themselves irresponsible.

comment Is this blue tint because of the film or the process?
I don't understand why you keep adding in your comments about your opinion on not liking film. In this case it really doesn't add value it simply is a negative sentiment. Another example for this same user where you speak negatively of film: photo.stackexchange.com/a/52137/4892 It would be more appropriate to share you opinion on his original question of film vs digital for his purposes then to add it to each and every answer you provide him: photo.stackexchange.com/questions/52074/…

comment Canon Rebel T2i How do you shoot fireworks?
It's "Canon", and I would recommend using the search functionality before asking a question on a Q&A site.

comment Cannot light a fire using a lens?
Not having another SE site where this would be on topic does not make it on topic here, sorry. What about Physics?

comment How has the price of a roll of film developed over the last few decades?
Is that pun intended? Price of film developed...

comment What are the significant differences between Tamron and Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 lenses?
Can you summarize the links and include the important points? If the linked to website is unavailable we still want to have relevant content here.

comment Apple Aperture replacement
For strictly culling based speed, there is also Photo Mechanic. I just use it alongside LR though.

comment Cannot light a fire using a lens?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about starting a fire.

comment Should I buy filters or step down adapters for multiple lenses?
Too bad no Canon <3

comment How can this visual effect be achieved using Photoshop or plugins?
I would suggest that the most obvious thing done here is the studio lighting, maybe 4 or 5 I count. Beyond that I see a lot of localized contrast especially in the midtones. The shirt also makes me wonder if they used multiple exposures but the skin certainly doesn't look like that.

comment Compact Cameras VS Phone Cameras
It really depends. When you say "compact camera" do you mean the basic entry level $125 models or a $500 large sensor compact with a fast f/1.8 lens? They are worlds apart and in many cases I would consider a iPhone 5S to be far superior for many reasons over a $125 compact. Bigger screens, internet sharing abilities, editing, etc. but also because frankly the quality is quite high on an iPhone. All of the interesting technology is being developed for mobile these days, not cheap pocket cameras. Everything from BSI sensors to OIS and very fast wide lenses.

comment Is Canon 16-35/4 IS better than 16-35/2.8 II at f/4?
As this lens is not yet released, I believe this question should be closed. Other than the existing MTF charts no one is going to have insider info here.

comment Does this Camera Lens to Mobile phone camera interface exist?
Please buy one and report back how well a 24-70mm f/2.8 performs on your iPhone :)

comment Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 Canon
I would get the Canon 17-55mm f/2.8. It is excellent, I've owned it and used it for the vast majority of my work on crop sensor Canon DSLRs. The sigma has a wider aperture sure, but the Canon is very handholdable throughout it's range especially with IS and f/2.8 is no joke.
