and I 100% agree on this
500 likes is nothing… It’s not really a bragging point at all. But he’s an artist. I think that you might sound either a little jealous about how many likes he has or you just want to bring him down.
Arts not everyones cup of tea.
Well you won’t win the first pulitzer prize in the new world then! 😛
Charging is like a bark.
Sure he charges $1500 for weddings but he’ll never get any.
He’s a faux, not a very good one aswell but then again he’s still in highschool and to say he’s not going anywhere in life is a little too soon to call.
I don’t think you have anything to worry about. The skill level between each photo is noticeably different.
I’m usually fine with other people shooting but as long as they get in the way, not just in my shots but in concentration. You are in control of the environment. Don’t be afraid to tell them to butt off.
I feel like your problem is not at all because its an SD. You’re just not using fast cards. Anything higher than a class 8 will solve that problem. Technology is evolving so quickly that there is little difference between a CF and an SD.
I don’t really use DNG at all
I shoot mostly in CR2, open it up in either lighroom or photoshoop. then save it to JPGs & PSD for future reference.
Great points about the Gray sheet. I always bring one along with every shoot I do and also a white sheet for WB when doing video. I don’t see this practice done very often anymore unless we are doing video work and we need to sync up all the broadcast cameras perfectly together.
I use for my CF bodies a Sandisk 32Gig Extreme.
While with my rebel body I use Class 10 SD Cards. It Writes just about the same and I’ve never had any issues with it for shooting portraits. Despite popular belief here, there really isn’t much of a noticeable difference if you are shooting correctly. Stef really hit it in the head, no way would you use or would it be even remotely necessary to reach the limits of an SD when shooting portraits. Not even weddings. Not even if you are shooting video. Sports photography. Runway photography yeah but you wouldn’t shoot raw for runway.
If people are having issues with SD cards, then the solutions are simple. Either get a higher class or think before you shoot and not let your shutter run like crazy.November 29, 2012 at 4:02 am in reply to: Will someone please go tell this woman she is a fauxtog? #4941
It’s not petty at all in comparison.
Browneyedgirls is a great photographer in her own right and therefore we adjust our critiques for something harsher and something more to the point.
Would you critique a feature film with the same judging criteria of a highschool film project?
Had she burnt the highlights in many of her photos, (she hasn’t she has perfect control of lighting) then i would have commented on that. But for now She needs to work on her composure. If she wants to take things to the next level then she needs to work on that. If she wants to be hired by companies not just people then she needs to work on making her composures good enough that they don’t need things to be tilted.
Browneyedgirl is a big girl. She has shown to be able to handle strong critique and harshness just fine.
I was just commenting on the irony that her bringing instagram into an argument while still using photoshop actions and other ironic things.
Sure, I’m fine with people bringing terrible work into light but commenting on their work and giving them rude advice is just petty. Especially since none i’ve seen thus far has the right to really be giving advice on their own page.November 28, 2012 at 8:18 pm in reply to: Will someone please go tell this woman she is a fauxtog? #4924
Its funny that you address Ashley using auto when you are using the Auto for Post Processing.
There is absolutely no difference between you using A pre-made action vs someone who is using Auto on the camera. The idea behind it is the same.
Sometimes people who think they’ve made it are the hardest to critique. It’s so easy for people to pick people who are obviously beneath them but once they think they’ve made it or have convinced themselves that they know all there is, having people critique them is near impossible.
Your go 2, I know more Photography than you, is to ask them lots of ridiculous wrong questions that don’t even make sense when answered.
ISO to cloudy day aside, you insisted that people should have a RAW conversation program and yet you fail to utilize yours to its potential.
You commented on someones photo asking if they used an instagram filter when you yourself use premade actions. Tell me, what is the difference between these premade post processing programs?
You commented on people not knowing how to shoot yet forget things like tilting when you are shooting and when asked about it, you will just brush it off as different tastes.
You asked whether having lens flare, that’s blatantly just a bad mistake, is good and when you didn’t get the response you wanted. you just simply didn’t respond.
I can handle that you want to choose to be unteachable in your own right. I can handle that you guys just want to post up horrible photos. But going around posting on other peoples work, rudely offering them advice and telling us that they are being stubborn?
Well now that’s just a tad bit ironic.November 28, 2012 at 5:51 pm in reply to: Will someone please go tell this woman she is a fauxtog? #4915
BrownEyedGirl… you use premade Photoshop actions, over tilt and thought that there was a correlation between a cloudy day and iso. When we addressed any of those issues you just brushed it off as it being your own style. How is Ashley’s stubbornness any worse?
@Rosaria. My bad! I made a mistake lala was right 🙂
Great! Love it. Your photo-journalist work is great.November 28, 2012 at 5:42 pm in reply to: Back Focus in the 50mm 1.2 and how to correct technique in order to prevent it #4911
Hmm technically i don’t know in mms. But I do know that by 1.4. If you are shooting someone’s face. Then only their nose would be in focus and their eyes would be out.
I imagine 1.2 would be worse with Close Ups.November 28, 2012 at 5:27 pm in reply to: Will someone please go tell this woman she is a fauxtog? #4907
@lala she makes crafts…. not photography. Even her label is called “Glued to my Crafts”. How long did you even investigate that?
@anna Alot of the people here aren’t pros. nor even close to being pros. Apart from a very very select few, most of them are quite bad for the level they boast themselves as and are just as unwilling to learn.
