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.

That's a good point to note. I cut first, cooked second.

What is "reasonable"? A cell phone can do this.

comment How can I eliminate set-in dog urine scent from a carpet?
Thanks for the update. Sorry about the pup. I've tried the urine destroyer now with no luck. On to the Off! product now :)

Joe - It is advisable at stack exchange to try not and answer questions via comments. I could find references to this at the main meta site but... I'm on mobile and too lazy. In any case; please convert your comment to a short answer!

comment How can I improve a landscape photo with deep shadows in post-production?
User13653 - This isn't a critique forum. The original question was specific and directed at a single issue. Your edit is asking for an overall critique which is not on topic here. If you have a solution that you have found I would recommend answering your own question vs adding in an "answer" to the question itself.

comment How many EV will a softbox knock down off your flash?
It depends on the softbox. Run a simple test in studio and you should have an answer.

comment How can I recreate the Instagram Filter "Slumber"?
This is exactly the type of "how do I create this effect" question that I wish we had more of. You actually named the filter you want to go after, provided an example using it, your original, and your attempt! Have an upvote from me, and welcome to the site!

Olin, it's not that I disagree with your sentiment - but it came off to me as rude. Keep in mind that posting of any images here is opening up to Creative Commons, something not everyone is comfortable with. Also, this site could use more photography so let's please not discourage it when users actually post it. Since I found your comment rude I've flagged it as such.

comment Pros and cons of cheap studio strobes vs. hotshoe/speedlight flash for portraits?
Great answer and lots of details! You clearly know what you are talking about, so thank you for sharing! I've only ever owned speedlights but I have yet to really run into the cycle time issues you described, at least for the shoots I have. I could see it for higher volume shops but I've had no problems with a few hundred shots of my kid in one session.
