Hi Everyone, Happy New Year!

I have a ton of great stuff planned for 2013.  One of the new video series I am planning is a simple Q&A.  Get your questions out to me and I'll try to use them.  I am going to do my best to make a video every week with questions, so keep them coming.  Here are some good sample questions.

  • What is your favorite photograph?
  • What is your favorite movie?
  • Where do you get inspiration for your photography?
  • What do you think of XYZ equipment?
  • Have you made a video about XYZ?

Ways to contact me:

Please do not email me your questions, I want everyone to benefit from the discussion and subsequent answers and since email is private that doesn't work.

What is different now with using a high ISO? when using film if you used a high number it would be a lot of grain in it, but it seems that in digital this is not the case since you can shoot with very high ISO numbers. Thanks,

I'm backpacking through India, Sri Lanka and Nepal for 5 weeks starting late April. What is in your opinion the best way to keep my gear safe from damage? My biggest concern is dust. Would you suggest in this case getting a filter for my lens to protect it? (I know you generally are not a fan of filters). Also, what is the best way to clean my lens in extreme conditions (for example, I'll be doing a 3 day camel tour in a desert).

My set-up is a Canon t2i and a 24-70 f2.8L w/ a blackrapid rs-sport 2. I also have a 50 f1.8 but I plan on using the 24-70 the entire time.

Also, any suggestion on a small affordable (student budget) tripod? Maybe a gorillapod?

Any other hints who have would be much appreciated.

Greg I have a Nikon D-90 and mostly use 80-200 2.8 and 50 1.8 Tokina 11-16 2.8

I shoot a lot of swim meets with my kids and I was wondering if I should incur the cost to upgrade to D600/D800 or stick with the D-90. What do you think? My main concern is the need for high ISO for indoor pools. I am at times in top ISO range the D-90 has. That high and it gets pretty sloppy. Also, would love to here if there are plug in's that will do a better job with noise than Aperture 3.4.

Thanks for the info it is very appreciated.

Hey, @cazillo
I have a canon rebel series camera (kit with 2 lens') I bought 2 years ago. I have had alot of fun with this camera, and am now considering doing photography as a second income, and eventually full time. My concern is I do not have proper equipment, and I do not have alot of money to spend on equipment up front. I do have a canon 580 ex II flash, a chep set of low wattage studio lights with umbrellas (3 of them) what other equipment would you recommend for starting out without breaking the bank? (the 2 lens are: 18-55; 55-250) And my husband bought me a lensbaby composer for Christmas - Thank You
