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 can i transform my manual focus lens into an autofocus lens?
You might be able to transform a manual focus lens into an autofocus lens simply by flipping the focus switch on the side of the lens if you have not already done so.

comment How can I remove banding noise from this image?
Lol a photo of a photo on a screen. Can you upload the photo vs taking a picture of your monitor?

comment specific equipment recommendation questions
@PhilipKendall - It was my question, but it received 24 upvotes, 9 favorites, and 15,000 views - so I'm assuming the community liked it quite a bit: What lenses would best comprise a travel photography kit? What is different between my question and the others?(I'm playing a bit of devils advocate)

comment Super clear images when zooming in
Lol no one is suggesting to upgrade your lens! The link that added does not work for me. Try imgur to upload the photo to. Facebook has quite a bit of security around image sharing so it is a bit complicated.

comment How to remove fog while shooting and during post-processing?
Lol can't fathom? You have almost no reputation at this site, and this isn't a comedy club. I don't see why it should be read any other way. Basically I don't think this tongue in cheek answer adds much of anything to the conversation.

comment Should I upgrade my body or lens first?
Small anecdote - When I was first getting started with Digital Photography, I had a very inexpensive point and shoot that I used until the shutter release literally fell off! It didn't have full manual controls, so instead I learned each and every creative mode that it offered and how it impacted exposure and why. The last thing I was worried about was the quality of the glass at that time, and I'm glad for it. Even after 10 years of being serious about photography, I still can't do justice to the expensive equipment I have!

comment Should i spend on upgrading my Beginner Camera or go for a new Lens instead?
@PhilipKendall - On that duplicate I added a comment about two years ago with the same basic idea, but not as an answer. I'll add one! Thanks.
