can be tricky and this
was well executed.
ALL TOGETHER NOW!
NAP TIME. LAUNDRY DAY FAIL.

In response to “Photographer Tested: Canon’s
5DS and 5DS R Discussion at WPPI 2015,”
american1974: Personally my older Canon 30D took better
pictures than any 60D or 7D that I tried. I now use the 5D Mark III
and Mark II. More megapixels don’t always mean better quality
images, my 7D vs. 30D was a prime example. I sold the 7D and
kept the 30D. I read an article stating the 5DS’s photo diodes
were placed further apart, which resulted in more noise than the
Mark III and would be recommended for landscape and studio
photographers only. The DxO website will show even the Nikon
D810 35MP is only producing 25MP using top glass.
In response to “Miguel Quiles’ How to Use ND
Filters With Strobes,” PhotoForward
Nick Fancher: A question and a comment. Why use a Sony body
and a Canon lens? Now the comment: You get great results,
but if I were doing studio portraits and wanted a shallow DOF,
I would use speed lights—low output, cheap and extremely
mobile. And you can use AF.
Miguel Quiles: Thanks for your question. I recently switched to
shooting with Sony cameras and since I already owned some of
the top Canon lenses I decided to shoot with them. As for the
speed lights, you can definitely get a similar effect using speed
lights, but there are some disadvantages. Mainly, you won’t have
a modeling light (which comes in handy), and you will be limited
to the size of modifier you use on your speed light (unless you
have a bracket with multiple lights, but then you might as well
use a strobe).
After listening to @josevilla speak at @richardphotolab’s
booth at @rfwppi last week, I was pretty inspired to buy
a new camera and shoot film. It just arrived! Can’t wait to
jump in with this beaut! #pentax645nii #pentax #mediumformat
