    Yongnuo to announce a new 14mm f2.8 autofocus lens

    The main brands no longer have the market to themselves with flashes and now it look like high end lines are next. Very interested to see how this performs.

    Has anyone else noticed and increased amount of couples eloping. I used to get one a year but now it's more like 5-6 . What I do like about them is they are often mid week.

    Critique First High Key attempt

    Im not convinced by the angle but apart from that I like it. I photograph weddings, around 60 a year. I often start the day at the brides house or mum and dads. I often see photo's at the house that have been taken at a studio. This is better than 80% of them

    Why do companies rip off UK customers?

    I do feel sorry for our retailers. Digital rev sell the Canon 5DMK4 for £2200 thats delivered to your door. Thats cheaper that UK shops can buy it from Canon.

    Bring it on !

    Nice photo but a shallower depth of field would help to isolate the boy a little more. We live in Devon and our girls are fed up as we have not had one flake os snow.

    So Im not the only one with daughters that get fed up with daddy asking them to model. I recently bought the 5DMK4 and it was not focusing properly. I have a focus test card to help with micro adjustments but i find nothing beets a human face to test on. They both soon got board with that. I...

    Beginner Printing - Can you have too many megapixels?

    My main problem with to many pixels is how long it takes to edit them and especially how long it takes to convert them from raw to jpeg. Often my clients want a quick turn around. At a conference last week, after shooting a guest speaker they wanted the photo's on social media ASAP. So I used my...

    Weddings - Sparkler Shot

    If I know the couple want a sparkler shot, I advise them on where to get them. Not all sparklers are the the same, some good some shocking making the photo's harder to capture.

    Canon 40D Help

    The easiest way to use a camera like the 40 is the mode dial. The lady on the hat for portrait the mountain for a landscape and the man running for sports. If you use these modes the camera has an idea of the type of photo you are taking. In P mode or green square the camera has no idea if you...

    Rubber coming unstuck.

    My 1dx has done the same, the CF door rubber is off the camera. When using glue you have to be carful as some of the rubber has to come off for repairs.
