comment Is it possible to export metadata, including facial tags, from Windows Live Photo Gallery to iPhoto?
This does not really answer the question. If you have a different question, you can ask it by clicking Ask Question. You can also add a bounty to draw more attention to this question once you have enough reputation.

comment Lightroom - How Do I find Photos that are Missing Copyright Metadata?
as soon as I posted that, I remembered taht's a field Adobe's search/collection setup doesn't support (why? stupid... it should have 100% coverage of data) -- so you need to use a plug-in to set that up. This one will do it: johnrellis.com/lightroom/anyfilter.htm

comment Lightroom - How Do I find Photos that are Missing Copyright Metadata?
this isn't a complete answer, because copyright status is manually set, and it can be set but "Copyright" can still be empty, so you're going to need to check for that field being empty, too.

comment zoom lens for Baseball games
F2.8 vs. F4 won't make a huge difference here other than cost, to be honest.

comment zoom lens for Baseball games
what size ballpark? If you're in a high school park near the dugout, you can get some nice work with a wider lens or something around 200mm. If you're in a larger park with the pros you'll want more like 400mm, more for outfield action (if those are allowed in the stands, they aren't many places).

comment what lense would be perfect and have 2.8f in low range
It depends on the lens. Some nikon lenses are poorer quality than others, and some 3rd party lenses are better than those nikon lenses. it's impossible to generalize.

comment How are compact system (mirrorless) cameras typically charged?
A tablet is unlikely to have the power to charge a camera but systems designed to charge tablets (like Mophie blocks) will if you need it. Carrying multiple batteries in the field and charging at night is easier and faster

Here is a good discussion on what's in those bottles of "canned air" (hint: not air) and why it's a bad idea.

Do not use aerosol canned air on your camera. Never. Never. Never.

comment State of the art in black and white printing
More on my paper usage here: photography.chuqui.com/2015/02/what-photo-paper-do-i-use -- FWIW, I really slimmed down the variety of papers because it's easy to spend lots of money and end up with a confusing mass of choices. Find a few key papers and learn how to excel on them.

comment State of the art in black and white printing
I used to use Hahnemuhle paper more, but found their quality inconsistent. It could be really good, or really unusuable. I'm using mostly Epson exhibition fiber these days, which I really love for almost every serious print...
