Hi! I am a passionate Lenspirationer and photography enthusiast from Pennsylvania. I am shooting with a Nikon Z 50, Nikon D5200 and multiple lenses: my favorites are the sigma 17-50mm 2.8, and the nikon 50mm 1.8
I personally love the Peak Design Slide Lite camera strap (Ash), and would definitely recommend it so far!
I shoot a lot of video personally, so being able to take off the strap easily is a big deal to me. (Especially if it’s on a gimbal)
It is more expensive… but if you view it as an investment, it will last you many years!
Okay, little update. I found out that my custom domain name from namecheap had expired. All I had to do was to pay for another year, and re register it into adobe portfolio.
Thanks for your help!

Does anyone know where a good source is to make a customizable contract for photography/videography?
If not, is there a generic contract that would work well? I am starting to do wedding films and videography projects, and I need to get a contract together within the next week. I’m so excited to start doing film-making as a potential career, and…[Read more]
Not sure if anyone would be able to help with this, but my Adobe Portfolio website is down. It doesn’t load properly on any browsers.
At least that is what it appears to be from the google analytics acquisition overview.(No views for the past two+ weeks, which has never happened to me before.) You guys could try out this link…[Read more]
@ernestf-lloyd did you stop using it because you got a mirrorless camera?
That is definitely one reason. The other reason is that I got it along with a bunch of other gear really cheaply to resell later.
So I never planned to keep it in the first place. I would have bought one for myself if I hadn’t switched to mirrorrless…[Read more]
Here’s a couple sample photos from that lens.
@blessingscaptured, I used the Sigma 17-50mm 2.8 lens for a few weeks before, and couldn’t believe the optical quality and versatility of this lens. I would highly recommend it. The constant aperture makes a big difference.
Sigma 17-50mm 2.8 lens for Nikon F-mount
I got mine for $290 used, but it looks like they are going on B&H for $500+.
This is the color profile menu I was talking about.
I don’t know what kind of camera you have, but you could mess around with the color profiles in your camera menu so that the photos come out looking better right out of the camera. As an example my Nikon d5200 or Z50 both have basic color settings: Standard, Vivid, Monochrome, Flat, other unique looks etc. A lot of camera’s also have…[Read more]
Hi, @tashavk! Glad you have questions- that’s what makes a good learner.
IMG_1793-2.jpg is probably my favorite. One key to good landscape shots is simplicity. If you look at a scene and try to capture everything it will tend to make the viewer feel uncomfortable and cluttered. Whereas if you always try for simplicity, you’ll be able to focus more…[Read more]
I suggest you look up Nikon Z50 vs. D3400 on camera decision.
It would be an upgrade for video(4k), ISO noise levels(I’m comfortable shooting around ISO 6400,) high fps(11 fps,) Environmental Sealing, Animal and human eye AF, 209 focus points (vs 11,) high res touch screen, an electronic viewfinder so you can see the exposure without looking at…[Read more]
I’m about halfway done with adding new photos to my portfolio and updating an old watermarks.
I had been exporting at 50% quality previously, but I’d be curious to know what the image loading time is for you guys when you view my portfolio. Here’s the link if you wish: ernestlloyd.org
I’m not sure @buddingphotographer, but that’s the one out of four JPEG options that was selected automatically.
@bennett-family, I was shooting through my sisters’ coat. 🙂 I felt the church door needed some framing.
BTW, Harrisburg is a great place for photography if you ever get a chance!
Okay, figured it out. I was exporting it for my website portfolio, so I didn’t want a large file size.
When I upgraded it to 100% quality JPEG it helped a little but not enough. It turned out great after I changed the settings from “Adobe 1998” color profile to “sRGB.”
Thanks for the help.
Don’t know if anyone else can see the difference… My…[Read more]
This is a screenshot of the Develop module version.
Okay, the black was there already, but what I’m referring to is the different layers of color and lightness on the edges of the black.
You have to look pretty close, but it’s still different than it should be. It’s like a rough gradient.
I guess it could be my screen.
Maybe this shouldn’t be in the photo critique section…
When I exported this photo from Lightroom some sort of shadow ghosting occurred.
I’m still trying to figure out the problem as it looked good in the develop module.
Any else know what I’m talking about?
