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 Are these photos ruined because of ISO?
Runined?!? You captured the moment in time in a photograph, did you not!? If you are trying to capture images for a contest then yes maybe you ruined the shots. If you want to capture the moment for your family to enjoy for years, you are worried about an issue that does not exist.

comment How do I get my recessed light fixture flush?
@Oxinabox - I would if that would work. What glue would work best and how would I prevent it from squeezing out the sides and looking bad? The fixtures are LED so I'm not too worried about glueing them up for 10 years.

comment Does the quality of a UV filter make a difference when used with a cheap lens?
If it is a cheap lens, just don't use a UV filter at all. The only reason I even would use a UV filter is for lens protection anyways.

comment Adobe Lightroom - how to sort large amount of photos in an effective way?
Can you comment on the most useful parts of the video that apply here? I'm worried that this isn't adding much to this site since it is just a link to other content.

Have you tried to google "Watercolor effect photoshop" or "watercolor effect gimp"? Thousands of tutorials exist, in written and video form.

comment What Canon full-frame lens should I get for product photography, toddler portraiture and travel photography?
How on earth did you come upon a $3,000 camera but yet have seemingly no experience with digital photography? I would recommend first selling the 5D MkIII then investing in a much much less expensive entry level camera with a kit lens and spend some time building basic knowledge. Once that is obtained, choosing the right lens is much easier.

comment How can I get the top people of a camera brand to listen to a design idea I have?
@jwenting - I work for a $12 Billion Net Rev/yr company and that is not the case for them. Your assumptions are incorrect.

comment canon 6d or 5d II for macro?
Unless you are really in need right now of an upgraded body, I would probably wait out the 7DmkII's release that should hopefully happen this year.

comment Are there disadvantages to a prosumer camera for a beginner, aside from cost?
My suggestion as first noted would be for the original poster to clarify what exactly they mean by prosumer instead of making assumptions based on vague terminology.
