I'm a technical writer at MicroStrategy in Vienna, VA.

I like running 5k, 8k, 10k, and marathons; watching movies; and reading philosophy or novels. My favorite activity, though, is hiking/backpacking/camping in wild areas and faraway lands ranging from Cambodia to my own backyard. And bringing my camera along is likely to make anything into pure joy.

comment Do you still need an ultra wide angle if you can now stitch images?
@AndrewHeath thanks! Yeah, obviously, I wish I had not clipped the baby's face :( but for present purposes, the image makes my point. As for the clipped face, well, I had a little squirming to contend with ;-)

comment I keep getting asked to do wedding photography - what is a fair price to ask?
@dpollitt's basic point is well made: shooting a wedding for money is a pretty serious endeavor, if for no other reason than because the wedding cannot be redone if you blow the shoot. Especially if they are paying you, they have a (legal) right to expect high quality work, and would not be the first folks to have recourse in court over a botched job.

Good call, @dpollitt. I think that was a moment of distraction.

comment When I change the EV compensation, how will that affect my aperture, shutter speed, or ISO?
Also, your calculator or phone should be able to pull off those equations, even if you don't happen to have a bunch of log tables memorized.

Oh, I didn't see [learning] - thanks. Well, it's about the web in as much as it's about a product for developing a portfolio site. But [learning] definitely works. Thanks, @mattdm!

There are so many open-ended, review-type questions in [web], and [web] is as big a tag as dozens of others - in fact, most of the tags are on about 50 posts or fewer. I'm not offended, @dpollitt. Your most recent comment was far more helpful than your first. Anyhow, I don't see how a -1 was necessary.

Fine. I posted it because there is a tag for it, @dpollitt, and I read the FAQ and it's pretty clearly not included in any of the "not appropriate here" categories. I grant it can lead to some chattiness or open-ended discussion, but that does happen here. The FAQ never says anything about reviews, and people post questions here for review-type information about specific products all the time, and get loads of great answers. I was only hoping someone here might have used the product and been able to say whether it helps "promotion a photography business" which is what this tag is about.

Well, @dpollitt, the tag [web] is defined as "Questions about resources on the World Wide Web or about photography-related web technologies, including those related to promotion of a photography business." This is a question about resources on the World Wide Web having to do with photography, "related to promotion of a photography business." Seems pretty clear to me, and a reasonable question.
