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 How to elimitate light leakage in my Zenit-B SLR?
I would suggest editing the title to ask about "limiting" light leakage, not eliminating. As eliminating on that unit probably requires you to shoot without any light :)

comment What are jpeg artifacts and what can be done about them?
Some answers for pieces of this question exist here: photo.stackexchange.com/questions/5317/…

comment Why is there too much noise in a fog photograph?
I agree. I see artifacting almost covering the area below the car headlights. I don't think you need to worry about the noise in this image, as it was shot at ISO 100. For a critique, the amount of noise(if any) is not a major concern here.

comment What tripod-ready camera sling-type strap is suitable for rangefinder cameras with two side lugs?
Nice cameras! For my Cannonet I actually use an old strap from a Canon G9 that I had. Works pretty well.

comment How can I stage a realistic-seeming jungle shoot without an actual jungle?
I think this falls under: photo.stackexchange.com/faq#dontask As in, do you have a specific question about a photo shoot setup, or are you just looking for general tips? This seems really open ended and I don't think the question in its current form really has a problem to solve.

comment What do you call the symbols that you can see on the edges when you look into your camera viewer?
Canon has "Viewfinder display information" in the manuals.

comment Will an SSD provide a noticeable benefit for Lightroom over a traditional harddrive?
I would suggest looking at that, as moving the camera raw cache to your SSD, and increasing its size should give you a large boost in performance. You can check the location by going to Preferences> File Handling> Camera Raw Cache Settings

comment Will an SSD provide a noticeable benefit for Lightroom over a traditional harddrive?
Can you explain what you mean by "The SSD is used by Lightroom exclusively"? Do you mean the catalog, adobe camera raw, image previews, master images, installation of the software, or what mix of the above?

comment How to find the color profile/space used by a photo?
@Zak - Just drop photos into the executable, and it will show you the color space as one of the output rows if the image has one defined. If none is defined, I believe it won't output any row for color space.

comment What are the advantages of moving from the Canon 550D to Nikon D5100?
@ThiefMaster - That is pretty harsh, especially after the poster even said they aren't happy BUT they wouldn't blame the camera because they are still starting out. I think the main idea here is that we all know both cameras are capable machines, but for someone new to photography does the D5100 have any advantages?

comment What does “distortion <XX%” mean in lens specs?
Hi Raphael, where are you reading these lens diagrams such as in this and your other question here: photo.stackexchange.com/questions/19051/… Are these lenses for photography? Could you show us an example of where you found this lens and this graph?

comment Why is Lightroom 3 having trouble importing from my iPhone 3GS?
I am pretty confident that the 1st option is the most likely fix. I reproduced the issue by removing the ICC profiles of images, and put them on my iPhone. That is how I got the screenshot image :)

comment What program can blur a photo to show motion?
Can you be more specific? Do you want to do this on your computer? What type of computer do you have, windows or mac? Do you have any software already that you want to try to do this in, such as Photoshop Elements, Gimp, or similar?

comment How to capture the scale of a scene?
I can't believe we don't have a question like this already, I thought we did, but could not find one in search. We do have a somewhat similar question about portrait photography here: photo.stackexchange.com/questions/7700/…

comment How to read a lens spot diagram?
It looks like you cross posted this here, and have already received some answers over at the Physics site: physics.stackexchange.com/questions/19377/… Could you explain what that answer didn't provide already?

comment Why is Lightroom 3 having trouble importing from my iPhone 3GS?
Really this is a better question for a site like superuser, as the issue likely a software issue with either the iPhone, the computer OS, or file types - and doesn't really pertain to "photography".

comment Why is Lightroom 3 having trouble importing from my iPhone 3GS?
Please add what version of iOS you are using, as well as the operating system that your computer has to the question. You can edit it to add those details.

comment How can I use a zoom lens easily with a rain cover?
I think that you will find that accessibility, along with durability, is the reason that higher end covers exist :)

comment What are the best apps used to process photos taken by an iPhone?
Welcome to stack exchange, unfortunately this question does not fit into the format of this website well. Do you have a specific narrow question about photography on the iPhone or an app you are looking for?
