Photographer, tech head, and extreme sport enthusiast.

I'm an amateur who likes to shoot everything from portraits to landscapes. My favorite venues are half way up a 14k mountain, Ontario in Fall, and the Mediterranean at sunset.

I love talking technology, new equipment, and Canon lenses.

comment Canon 6D or 5D for amateur photographer?
@MichaelClark - How so? You suggest ignoring the obvious and just proposing the user spend money for the sake of doing so? Or maybe you don't like that I commented on your answer and challenged it so now you have decided to vote mine down in spite?

comment What's the best Macro/Portrait setup gear I should look for?
possible duplicate of Should I use a 100mm Macro lens as a portrait lens?. I understand that you are asking about what specific lens to buy, but product recommendations are off topic here. The only real on topic question here is around using macro lenses for portraits, which we already have a question on.

Ah interesting. I think if this doesn't work, you are simply out of luck unless one of the products decide to support the other format. I found many many references to the current limitation.

comment When do I need to transfer money to the owner when buying a used car? Used car transaction paperwork and details
@NateEldredge Yes that is true but that process leaves the possibility that ownership will not properly be transferred at the DMV which is very important in my state.

comment How much should I charge per band for gig photography?
What location? What do others in your area charge? What is the amortized cost of your equipment? What is the cost of retouching the photos by time and equipment? What do you need to make to turn a profit? How much gas and how far are you traveling? Did you take any classes that cost you money to learn your skills? Are you pursuing this as a profession or hobby? I don't think this question can be reasonably answered for you specifically with what you have provided us.

comment How can I get my colours true for product photography?
Please post an example photo and explain in why viewing conditions you are experiencing issues(I.e. Are the colors "not true" in Photoshop, in print, on the web?).

comment Merge the "macintosh" tag into "apple" or "os-x"?
Yeah that is a good point. A lot of the photography related software on OS-X actually is included with the OS like iPhoto or whatever it is called these days. So one tag might not make sense either.
