Re: Open letter to the TE management

Indeed. If we'd fallen out of different worm holes rather than the same one then we'd both be ecstatic with the site. :)

Cheers,

Ron.

Re: Any advice for my first camera?

With all due respect Nuno, I'd rather not spend the time dismissing each of your points one by one, so let's take it above the level of science. I enjoy photography, and you enjoy photography. There...

Re: Canon Photography in the Parks Photo Contest

Hi Rob,

Keep in mind that this is also an opportunity for them to get access to (and ownership) of a range of images for their own use.

Note in the rules -

"If Canon USA opts to use the...

Re: To ronners: Sharpness is a sore point

Hi Dan,

First of all, thanks for taking the critique in the spirit it was intended :)

What I've found over the years is that sharpness is influenced by a number of factors - light conditions,...

Re: olympus 9-18 mm lens

Hi Alan,

Two potential red flags here -

1. 9mm widest angle? What camera is this suitable for? You'll be in a whole world of distortion here, compounded by the fact it's a zoom - which will...

Re: Any advice for my first camera?

Naturally it's no surprise that everyone advises that you follow the digital route. However, I'd like to give you a different option that's still in your price range. Your results will ultimately be...

Re: Film and Airport X-ray Machines

I recently traveled with a bunch of TMax and in San Francisco and Maui they were happy to hand screen it - you will need to allow a few more minutes to get through security though. Another idea I've...

To momolumix: Thanks

I'm using a Mamiya 645 Pro-TL and Kodak TMAX100 black and white film. The final images is much better than I was able to get with my digital setup and lenses, so I view this as progress (for me...

Re: Open letter to the TE management

Quite frankly Jack, it's unbecoming of an artist such as yourself to engage in petty rants. If this site so poorly meets your needs it may make more sense to construct your own little kingdom where...

Re: Medium Format Films

Hi Alex,

I too recently purchased a Mamiya 645 Pro-TL. For black and white I use Kodak TMAX 100 (I do my own negative development as well), and for color I initially used Fuji 160 and Kodak...

But what if my camera phone has a tripod mount? Surely I'm OK then?

Re: To Polonaise: Visual proof

Did you also notice that several rocks have clearly been 'stolen' from the playa, and that the NPS has dug a ditch to stop people driving their trucks onto it... ?

Very sad. Another one of those...

Re: Workflow problems

Hi Paul,

One of the problems is that PhotoShop allows you to fiddle forever. If you step back for a moment, the goal is really to figure out what you are looking for in advance, then gradually...

Re: What I wouldn't give...

Another good spot is Monument Valley. Take one of the guided hikes where you can camp out overnight. A truly spectacular experience.

Re: Circular polarizer

To figure out which filter you need for that lens you need to check the filter size (it's usually marked somewhere on the lens (my Nikon lenses are 77mm and 55mm). If you haven't yet embarked on...

Re: Points giving and critiques

Hi Will,

I'd have to agree that the whole points thing is kind of immature, and critiques are much more valuable. Giving someone 2 points is pretty much of zero value (unless they like having...

Re: "Points tomorrow"...

What about setting up a different site where points are unlimited? You would then not have to worry about running out of points on a day to day basis, and wouldn't have to worry about remembering...

Re: ND Grads

I would guess that technically speaking since it's easier to recover underexposed areas than overexposed ones, it would make more sense to go for the darker ND grad. In reality a 2-stop works pretty...

Re: What happens to all the pictures you take?

Yes, a good question indeed. In fact, I'd never given it much thought. I guess if I'm honest I'm working toward the holy grail of taking the best shots of locations/people/things that...

It's probably not worth knocking Robbie just because he happens to get more points than you think his work deserves. Maybe he's just better at playing the TE game. If you are here to get good...

Re: beginner could use guidance

The best way to really take a step forward in photography is to discover what's possible. A lot of what you see posted here and elsewhere doesn't really push the boundaries of photography...
