I’m in need of a good strategy on culling and bulk editing a lot of photos. For example, I just came back from a portrait shoot of one of my little siblings with nearly 200 photos… how do I begin to quickly cull these and edit them without spending all day on them?
Appreciate any help I can get!
@kina @bennett-family one photographer I was reading—and I don’t know that I would recommend this, but maybe you could find a way to say it without being deceitful—said to ask your child subject to look for the little bug (or fairy or whatever) that lives inside your lens. You certainly get some very quizzical and fun expressions that way!
I’ve heard great things about the quality from
nationsphotolab.com. Utilized them a couple of times for a couple of competitions.
@c-anon, wow, I don’t know if I would try this on an 24-70! I think that’s a more complex lens to work with (being that it has full time manual focus and there’s a focus clutch in there…), but again, I wouldn’t know at all. You’re going to have to proceed at your own risk here, as I did with my lens.
I don’t really know where or even if your…[Read more]
@hayhand02 has some neat ideas there! I’ve done it before for a shoot for my mom’s blog:
In the image above, I wanted your attention to be on the young lady, as I was trying to get the viewer to feel a sense of empathy for her. That’s why she’s wearing red,…[Read more]
Is this technique often used when subjects and scenes (i.e. landscapes) do not have much colour?
I’d answer that with “sometimes”!
I used to shoot products for a guitar case manufacturer. I shot a lot of black guitar cases :). If the guitar case was solely black and white then, and any color introduced by the camera (chromatic…[Read more]
Hi everyone! As I didn’t have any takers (yet), I’ve listed them on eBay ($40 PLUS shipping, or make me an offer 🙂 )
If you guys are interested, here’s the link:
@joshua_ong, I think the answer is that it all depends on your genre and the purpose of your photo.
If I am shooting for a newspaper or an event, I really don’t want to be doing a lot of Photoshop work at all.
For instance, I don’t know how many of you have been watching the news lately, but let’s say I visited the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest…[Read more]
Having used both extensively, Luminar I don’t think is quite fully developed yet if you’re looking for a serious editor. I really hoped the new “libraries” feature would help with image browsing… and I bought the program expecting something solid… unfortunately, it was really, really slow. On my computer, I had to…[Read more]
I’ve done a lot of research on this, tried a number of free trial programs, and I think I may have found where I’m going to settle down for a long while.
I’ve been very very pleased with On1. I think it’s quite close to Lightroom in terms of features both in editing and in browsing, but it’s a much better deal in my opinion and you’ll…[Read more]
Hi everyone! I have a set of a 72mm ICE ND filters (https://www.amazon.com/Filter-ND1000-Neutral-Density-Optical/dp/B07DCG4MS9/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=ice+nd+filters+72mm&qid=1591752539&sr=8-3) I’m looking to part with. I think they’re a little better than the absolute cheap ones.
I’ll sell them for $40 (shipping included as long as you’re…[Read more]
Ah, sometimes being a 20-year old is great! and other times it isn’t so much…
I too was in the same boat (only I had the Canon 18-200) looking for a second lens. The 18-200mm is a great jack-of-all-trades (and nothing gets from wide to close faster, making it a good choice for when you need to travel light and get the shot at an event), but it can come short with image quality, bokeh (what you’re after in…[Read more]
@jamesstaddon, my grandma gave it to me, actually! I don’t know if there’s any family history behind it (in which case, it’d be an even better antique!).
I shot this in the dark with a single flash off camera to the right (autofocus was super painful to get right—I was using a flashlight and handholding my camera!).
Maybe I’d like to see a lit…
@bennett-family, ooh! Budget photography! One of my favorite subjects…
@ernestf-lloyd has the idea there. What she wants to photograph will make a HUGE influence on what she’ll be wanting to purchase.
If it’s her paintings, I know my mom uses her smartphone instead of my (technically her?) Canon 60D, which used to be about a $1000 DSLR. So she…[Read more]

@jamesstaddon, I don’t want to miss this 🙂 Just registered!
@bennett-family, yeah, those lead-in lines aren’t super great. As far as the crop is concerned, it does feel tight, but that’s about as tight as I took the photo unfortunately so I can’t really “zoom out” in post… one way I’m thinking I can “fix” that without taking this same picture again is taking more close photos of different elements of the…[Read more]
Just FYI on this lens, I’ve owned this lens for about a year and it is so far my absolute favorite, staying on my camera about 75% of the time (my other lenses, in order of “favoritism” are my 50mm 1.8, my 10-18mm 4.5-5.6 and my 18-200mm 3.5-5.6) If you have a crop-sensor (i.e. Canon EOS 80D, Rebel T6, EOS 7D…), this is basically an equivalent…[Read more]
I’m not really an antique guy… unless…
This is a Kodak No. 2 Folding Cartridge Premo that was produced between 1916 the mid 1920s (here’s some articles I found about it: http://camera-wiki.org/wiki/Kodak_Folding_Cartridge_Premo https://www.science.widener.edu/~schultz/oldcameras/premoreview.html)… and it’s one of my favorite…[Read more]
All right! You guys deserve an update 🙂
So, after this lens being largely replaced by a “new” EF-S 17-55 2.8 and I stuck at home during the COVID pandemic, I decided I would have a go with a screwdriver and see what was ailing my 18-200. I figured since I wasn’t using the lens because of the focus problem and I wasn’t super attached to it as the…[Read more]
