Re: The Most Beautiful Woman In The World

I have to agree. I just don't see the artificial construct as being beautiful. But guess it all has to do with what one considers beautiful. Here is a link with a bunch of the other entries:

Re: Metering vs Histogram Question

Yes. Digital is linear. So the most data is collected in the first stop (1/2 to be exact), and then 1/2 of what left in the next, and so forth (moving left). So further right means more data and more...

Re: Metering vs Histogram Question

Most modern handheld meters give readings out in 1/10th stop increments. Even mine (an old Minolta IV) give it in 1/10th stop increments. So let's say the target indicates an ideal exposure of f8....

Re: Metering vs Histogram Question

Right. I was a workshop once where there were at least 7 different meters in use. ON a give scene all 7 gave different readings. So much for consistency among meters. I think that whenever someone...

Re: Metering vs Histogram Question

Actually it depends on face tones. For most fair skinned models, I use the face for the spot metering and it works well. But keep in mind that usually I don't use the camera meter or an external...

Re: Metering vs Histogram Question

To all. It is not the meter that is really the problem here. It is more about technique in metering. First consideration: if using the built in camera meter, then what mode is it in. If it is in the...

Re: A little help with pole dancing

I've used the Tamron 28-75 and I found it to be very sharp. In fact for glamour it was too sharp in most cases. I think what you are dealing with is just not focusing on the proper spot. But tell us...

Re: Metering vs Histogram Question

That is not necessarily a good histogram. A histogram is good if it represents the tonal range of the scene properly. So in a high key scene we would see more spikes on the right, on low key, more on...

Re: Continuous -vs- Strobe

The fluorescent lights (FL) are not "inherently" soft. It's just that many of the commercial lights from places like Kinoflow are large panels and by the very nature of what soft light is --- a...

Re: Advice for new lens

Most brands have very sharp macro lens. Tamron, Sigma, even Tokina. You'll not find a great deal of difference in how sharp any of them are even compared to the mfg lens.

Re: Continuous -vs- Strobe

Several points were being discussed. One was Continuous VS Strobe (see title of the posts). You seem to equate continuous lighting with Hot, and hotter when you get up to higher powers. But that is...

Re: Continuous -vs- Strobe

Re: Continuous -vs- Strobe

The big plus of strobe is the power to freeze action and even control the sun itself (when outside). The big plus of continuous is the ability to see more accurately what the lighting is doing and...

Re: Continuous -vs- Strobe

There would be no way to tell if the white balance issues are dealt with properly. So one could take a model on a set, and shoot the shot once with flash and once with continuous lighting and if the...

Re: Rocky Point Mexico Shoot

I think its too warm. I think the WB is shot. The cropping is a little off on the right side especially.

Re: Image Ownership

There are some very smart models also. But that doesn't really make the difference. Most people just flat don't read what they sign. Often it is in legal mumbo jumbo and they generally are not sure...

Re: Image Ownership

This is why one gets a model released signed, dated and with ID and then keeps track of the release. If the release is properly worded, then it allows any use, etc. and you would not likely be having...

Model too centered. White spot or area on top of head (don't know what it is). Hair blends with background.
