    Recommendations on pro-soft boxes

    I was going to suggest Lencarta. Otherwise suggest you ask mod to move to studio lighting section of the forum as you'll probably get a better response

    Canon EOS R Series Cameras

    I'm guess you'd be looking at say a Canon 300 2.8 with 2x converter or 400 2.8 with 1.5 converter if you want the large aperture. I understand that the Sigma 150-600 isn't bad but will be slower

    New Lenses needed for higher MP cameras

    I think that is a pretty good summary. Hopefully I'm also in category 3 but the R6 does seem tempting and I could move in the new year to mirrorless

    Using artist canvas as paint test panel

    Using artist canvas as paint test panel

    Thanks for that. The intention is to use Zinser to cover, undercoat then satin top coat. The issue is the OH has seen a F&B colour but tester pots only come in emulsion

    Using artist canvas as paint test panel

    The tester pots are emulsion and even worse Farrow and Ball, which is like using milk. Worse I will be covering vanished architrave and door so it will just slide off. Scrap wood is a possibility but was hoping to avoid priming and undercoat etc hence the idea of artist canvas
