On second thought, I think I’m going to recommend editing it a little bit more heavily too. Next time I’m near my computer I’ll try to show you what I mean. BTW, it is a really nice photo idea. Read More »

Hey @mirandawaite! I remember you from Taccoa. I had some similar thoughts as the ones mentioned by others on here, but I would add one other idea. Did you consider processing this as a black and white image to bring out texture and details? That’s probably something I would try. I don’t know what the... Read More »

Reply To: memory card error message

Do you think my camera (a Panasonic Lumix from about 2009) is harming the SD cards? Or am I just buying cheap cards and should spend more to get good ones? I guess it is possible that your camera is corrupting your SD cards, but I’ll be prone to suspect the cheap SD cards instead. I know they are less expensive... Read More »

Reply To: Foundations of Photography Course

I’ve only read the first lesson (and scanned a couple others) and I haven’t found the time (or the nerve) to take the quiz… From what I’ve seen it looks very helpful for a beginning photographer, yet even someone who’s been doing photography for a while will probably learn something... Read More »

memory card error message

I once lost several months of pictures due to a memory card error. I decided not to buy any more large cards, limiting myself to 8GB, in case this happened again. Earlier this year, I got the error message on my replacement card. I was able to download the card, but I stuck tape on it with a message to only use if I... Read More »

Thanks for the plug, @frazer-family. Using my template is the easiest way to do it, but for those who want to take the time to create their own design, I can print custom designs like I do for @buddingphotographer... Read More »

Hmm… There was a 30% off sale and I bought 25 copies for $210 CAD. In USD at that time (Sept. 2015), I think that came out to about $160, so $6.40/calendar. They were 26-page, spiral-bound calendars with bleeds, 80# glossy cover, and 28/70# laser white smooth inside paper. Without bleeds is less expensive (but... Read More »

Reply To: Calenders

I printed mine through Docucopies.com last year. Compared to a lot of other places, their price was the best I found… if you’re willing to wait for a sale. I went with them primarily because they were one of the few places that would allow me to design my own calendar and not oblige me to use their... Read More »

Reply To: 12 Tips for Puppy Photography
Anyone want a kitten? 🙂 My sister and I took some time this morning to take pictures of the black kittens so we could put up an ad to give them away. On the whole, I was pretty pleased with the results. Thanks, buddingphotographer, for the suggestion of using the AE-L for black animals. It sure... Read More »

I really like the way you positioned your subject in the first picture. Like what @mr-quebec said, living things should be given more room or “breathing space,” which is what you have done in your pictures. It seems that you had two basic ways of taking pictures at the wheat field: (1) Close-up of the ears (which is... Read More »

Reply To: Summer Wheat

I had noticed that that left wheat ear wasn’t as sharp as it could have been. It looked like to me that the camera focused in on the top of the ear. I’m not exactly sure how that happened. That’s weird, since usually sensors tend to focus on the nearest object from the camera. I am wondering if the camera... Read More »
