    Chit Chat Re: What is originality?

    Waitasec, now I'm confused. That sounds to me like the type of "original" they're looking for is being unaltered from its original state, not original in terms of uniqueness.

    I must say though,...

    Camera Topics Re: E7 - New, Bigger Sensor Size?

    I don't know why you guys think that the rectangular diagonal determines how large an image circle the lens can cover, or why you think that a wider coverage would require a shorter height? If a lens...

    Yup, and I think a lot of times the ones who become the most creative are the ones who are not afraid to take inspiration from others. We need that kind of input from the greater body of creativity...

    Oh yes, there is definitely creativity and originality involved Clive. That's why advertising professionals are called "creatives". What I mean is that we who make a living in creative fields don't...

    Chit Chat Re: What is originality?

    In the world of photography... there is nothing new. In the world of modeling, there is even less. Pretty much everything has been done at one point. Many of them have been done to death already. You...

    I know there are a few members here in my area, and I wanted to give you all the heads up that I have now opened a new studio in downtown Edmonton, right at the heart of Chinatown on 97...
  10. Camera Topics Re: Interview with Olympus representative Toshiyuki Terada (Photokina 2012)

    The GH3 works.

    I don't see what the big deal is personally. As a professional shooter, I've always had lenses which far outweigh my bodies. You hold them by the lens, not the body. It's the exact...

    Lens Topics Re: Macro lens help for the 4/3 system?

    At 300mm and 3' away, the Zuiko 70-300mm achieves 1:2 macro. Add an EC-20 and you have 1:1 macro (but no wider than f/11). The EC-14 gets you half-way there with a max aperture of f/8.

    It may not...

    The 14-54mm is not the sharpest knife in the drawer but it's pretty darn sharp. If it's not sharp enough to your liking (and yes, I sometimes feel the same way about mine), then the 12-60mm will not...

    Lens Topics Re: What Filter mfg Does Olympus recomend.

    What kind of filter, may I ask?

    You're using top-pro glass, so you'd better put a damn good filter on it. I would probably go with B+W or Heliopan, but it's important to know what kind of filter...

    Camera Topics Re: Need weatherproof camera; Which one?

    I would stick with your two E-510s until you can afford an E-5. Sure the controls are not as convenient and the build is not quite as tough (though compared with Canikon bodies of the same level, the...

    Studio and Lighting Re: Jewelry shot

    I meant rotating the bracelet 45 degrees on the plastic base. :) A little less than 45 degrees, to be more precise... like maybe 35 degrees so the "front" of the bracelet is still the main face.

    Studio and Lighting Re: Jewelry shot

    It's better to host the image than to attach it. :)

    Anyways, I like it. :) The black plastic will work out well for you.

    I think a different angle would be in order though, not straight-on....
