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 What setting do I use for a 70-300 lens?
Matt is right about an example image. Please link to a full size one with the EXIF intact on a site such as Flickr or your personal portfolio. Are you sure the issue isn't heat waves? I often run into that when shooting ships on Lake Superior.

It's actually closer to the Sun600 LMS then the OneStep600. I have both on my shelf and can confirm :)

comment How can I avoid noise (white dots all over the picture) with GoPro Hero4's nightlapse mode?
Please post an example image to a photo hosting website and link to it here. A full size image would be preferred if possible. Also please edit your post to include the important settings such as ISO selected and shutter speed. Finally, please describe what exactly you are trying to capture. Are you shooting stars, city lights, cars, etc?

comment Which Canon lens should I get for portraits/weddings?
Yeah that's a popular one too Bill. I just find the f/4 too limiting for my preferences.
