Hi,

I'm Francesco. Welcome :-)

comment Color film comparison: How does Fujifilm Superia compare to Kodak Portra?
Cinestill is nice. It is an 800 emulsion which can be pushed. Tungsten balanced so requires a filter for daylight shooting.

comment Is it possible to use a flash for modern DSLR on an older film camera?
Thanks. You confirmed my understanding.

comment How do I capture the moon and its surrounding context?
Michael, both your pics are really good. Very nice to look at, especially the first. You should really be proud :-)

comment Suggestions what I can do with 26 images of the same scene taking in different seasons
what kind of scene it is? Is it a natural landscape, showing the passing of season, or is it an urban landscape, or what?

comment Is an aperture range of 3.5-5.6 shallow enough to provide great bokeh on a cropped sensor?
Fixing the "too wide" problem is easy: don't use it at focal lenghts that you don't like :) The "too short" problem is another matter.

comment Good examples of full frame's advantages over the cropped sensor?
it seemed very close, to me. In particular this sentence says a lot "To replicate the look of a 50 f/1.4 lens you'd have to use something like a 31 f/0.9 lens, which doesn't as far as I know exist!"

comment Does Lightroom 3 support multipage TIFF?
It is the best solution that I found until now, so it answers indirectly the question about LR support.

comment How to start learning photography Online for free?
I agree with the link, maybe you could add some reasoning to explain why is it so.

comment Does Lightroom 3 support multipage TIFF?
Sorry @Rob, for some reason I had missed your reply. In the meanwhile, I had already decided for the "ImageMagick route".

comment How to learn to shoot with the “other” eye?
Update: by learning to shoot with the other eye, I have achieved at last the added benefit of learning to close both eyes independently. It only took me 32 years... one's never too old to learn :-)

comment How to learn to shoot with the “other” eye?
And practice did the trick. It took a couple of days, but now I pick the right eye by default, and I am easily able to shoot with both eyes open. So if someone finds in my same position, it takes some hours/days of practicing, so don't give up at the first trial even if it seems "strange".

comment Why does Darktable export enormous JPEGs?
Excellent answer, you could add a link to the jpeglib maybe

comment How could I photograph a page with minimal distance to the camera?
What are you looking for? if you clarify your goal, what you are wondering about / what you want to test, it could be easier to find out an answer or possibly to figure a different approach to solve your doubts. That is: I understand your question but I am a bit puzzled as to what you are really wondering about.

comment Software to find sharpest image in sequence?
Well the algorithm will try to identify the sharpest areas: motion blurred images will have few of those if any but being automatic it could give some answer all the same. Granted, it could be not enough. ..

comment How to learn to shoot with the “other” eye?
Thanks for the suggestion. I tried it again and I followed up to the right eye. I have also consciously steered the hand to go to the left eye and it "exits" from the hand. I wonder if my difficulties come from a worsening in my sight (eg more astygmatic as I get older).

comment How to learn to shoot with the “other” eye?
I'm not a native speaker, what do you mean with having a "head start if ...."? do you mean that since I am already using my "not dominant" eye I should be able to "learn" quickly? I am already able to shoot with both eyes open, but with a dslr is less useful since the pentaprism/viewfinder is central and so the camera occludes, partially, the view.

comment Why did “pure” photography displace pictoralism so completely?
Thank you Stan, I learned a lot from this answer.

comment How do you shoot lighting designs in a studio?
i wonder if the lightning design company doesn't already have some fixture to set up their products. I think that they have to display them somehow and so probably have already faced some similar issue....

comment How to achieve a “moody” effect in urban landscapes?
the works of the two photographers you mentioned seem rather different to me. Perhaps if you could express better what kind of mood you are seeing in them it would be helpful for answering (and maybe it could be helpful for you, too, since explaining is the best way to understand something)
