comment Should I sign, watermark or otherwise label a framed print? And if so how?
Thanks. Kind of leaning that way too.

comment Should I sign, watermark or otherwise label a framed print? And if so how?
Thanks, I included "watermarking" in the question and by that I mean a digital signiture with or without a graphic that is merged into the photo. Some of these often resemble a signature. I understand that the original purpose of "watermarking" was to prevent unauthorized digital re-use but I see it embedded into prints more often then not lately; wedding and studio photography being a prime example but i have also seen nature and landscape prints with embedded graphics "watermarks".

OK. I did not realize I can manually navigate to the photo I want to display on the link. Not ideal but it will do. Thanks for your answer and for the compliment.

didn't realize my link was broken. Fixed now. thanks! I was hoping for a much easier solution then customizing the code on the page. (i think smugmug has it but if i purchase an online solution i think i will go with 500px only because I love the community there.) Basically, currently pasting a link to my portfolio adds i think the thumbnails to all my photos there but i would only like it to display those from the particular portfolio with the newest image being preferably the fist displayed thumbnail.

This has to do with showing my photography portfolio in a social media site. Isn't showing my work an important aspect of photography?

comment Shooting with the Nikon D7000?
Pretty much, that's why it takes some practice. You can see that in some of the shots the kids intentionally begun out of focus then turn the focusing ring until sharp focus. (convenient and looks good in the sequence) Judging by the bokeh and the fact that there is no zooming whatsoever, they probably used a fast prime lens, probably the 50mm f1.8. In the fast action shots they likely focused first to the correct distance while driving down hill in the car then clipped and assembled the video clips in post processing. You could probably ask them direct on You Tube.

comment Shooting with the Nikon D7000?
Sorry i don't personally know these guys. I could probably track them down trough a few people. I am 99% sure its manually focused. Autofocus in video mode, especially in low light like this, will just keep hunting and adjusting. From what I hear it takes some practice.

comment Does using a different lens affect the dynamic range for HDR post-processing?
You could tweak the sky in Photoshop or substitute it from one of the single exposures. Many options. Sometimes it takes hours of tweaking and editing to get the image looking just right, I would not doubt if true pros take weeks on a single image to make it perfect. It's art to get it just so.

comment Does the convergence of video and photo technology in digital cameras have a negative impact on strictly photographic ability?
"Combined still and video is the way of the future" SERIOUSLY?

comment What kind of camera do I need to capture deep space images?
These are quite difficult to shot. (I believe that's the milky way) This is more about a tripod and post processing then it is about the camera. (The tripod must be capable of compensating for earth's rotation) There is also good deal of post processing involved to take out the noise inherent in long exposures like these. It looks like there is also some sort of light painting involved here to illuminate the structure.

This really depends on what you normally shoot. The 18-135 is an OK starter kit lens; good for many situations but a master of none.

comment Nikkor f/1.8G 35mm or 50mm?
I never had a 35mm prime so take this with a grain of salt; I think the 35mmm might be too wide for portraits. I have a 17-40mm lens and even at 40mm it is a bit too wide. Perfect for full body shots but facial features up close are a bit distorted. I love my 50mm F1.4. I was a Pentax user before I was canon and the 50mm has been one of my favorite lenses on both cameras. Certainly the most fun to use both indoors and out. Personally I don't find it awkward at all but I guess it is because i like to get close. I guess this comment could be a question; is the 35mm too wide for portraits

comment Which camera bag for a single DSLR camera plus 2 lenses?
How is the bag 1/2 down the road? Still good? I have the Lowepro slingshot mentioned above and its way too small for a full size DSLR + 70-200 L + 2 lenses. Will absolutely not fit with a battery grip. I am looking for something roomier and comfortable. Would you care to share your experiences?
