Does anyone have tips for getting sharper photos indoors, in situations where there’s not a ton of light? I was taking pictures of kids in the audience at our church’s VBS. (High ceilings. Semi dim lights. Spotlights focused on stage.) It was hard to get the kids crisp and sharp. Any tips?
I’m shooting with the Nikon D750 and…[Read more]
Thank you to everyone for sharing your experiences with the different hard drives! Guess it’s true that no hard drive is eternal 😉 What a contrast to the word of God that never “goes bad” or fails!
I’m looking into external hard drives for storing photos.
What brands have you found to be dependable? (less likely to crash, etc.)
What brands would you stay away from?
Would you feel safe with anything that’s not solid state?
Thanks for your suggestions!

James, how’s the bokeh on your 24-105, especially at the wider end of the zoom?
I’ve experienced the same problem with the 50mm! I recently took Christmas photos of a toddler using the 50mm. I don’t know how many times I bumped into the mom and other kids while using my feet as zoom. I like how much of a blurred background I get, but it’s been…[Read more]

Thank you for the nice variety of lens suggestions! 😀
I have the Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 DI VC and enjoy it very much! When comparing it to the Nikon version before purchase, the differences were not enough for me to pay the extra $$. In fact, a rep at our local camera store said she preferred the Tamron version over the Nikon because she felt it…[Read more]

2 questions here 😀
1. What is your “go to” lens for shooting an event with action? If you had to shoot something like a homeschool conference, VBS (indoor and outdoor), kids or animals in action, what lens would you grab first? 🙂
2. What is your favorite lens for portraits?
I’m looking at lenses for a full frame Nikon, but I’d be happy to…[Read more]
Thanks guys for all the super helpful info! It is so helpful to learn from the experience of others 🙂 I appreciate all the links here as well. The discussion here has helped me narrow down what I need in a camera. Least amount of noise at high ISOs and clarity in low light situations (and all the time!) are my top priorities. The D750 may…[Read more]
Wow! I really have not kept up to date on this thread! Thank you for the replies!!
I see @mrstevens has experience with the Nikon D750, which is a body I’ve been considering. Can I ask why you chose the full frame D750, rather than a higher end DX crop sensor body, like the D500? I was chatting with an Adorama rep who stated that he chose the…[Read more]
Thank you for the insights here! Yes, I realize the jump to FX might sound ridiculous. But I figured, hey, if I’m going to upgrade, why not go for the highest quality possible? If I’m going to shoot, then I’m going to do my best, not produce <100% results 🙂 Eventually I would like to be shooting full frame, and the results I’m getting with my…[Read more]
I am looking to upgrade my Canon T3 to a full frame camera and considering a switch to Nikon as well. I am looking for a camera that will give sharp images for outdoor AND indoor in-action shots, and serve well for portraits too. So I have a couple questions:
1. Do you see a difference using full frame vs. crop sensor?
2. Is there a…[Read more]
