Tony Monahan replied to the topic 'Grades of canvas when looking at getting a print' in the forum. 3 weeks ago

Not something I have seen advertised either.  Best bet is to stay away from canvas discount sites.  There are a number of high end canvas shops, you'll pay more, but you'll at least know you have a quality product.

Tony Monahan replied to the topic 'Why do people use film?' in the forum. 3 weeks ago

Have you shot with film recently?  I get it, it's old, expensive to process.  But it's fun.  Seriously, you have this sense of jumping back in time.  This is where a photographers skills shine, because you don't have much of anything auto helping you.

Those two photographers mentioned that in their argument to me as well.  "other photographers bait birds all day long, how is this any different?".  

These photographers are good example of what is so wrong with people today.

Tony Monahan created a new topic ' Ethical or unethical - baiting wild animals to photograph?' in the forum. 3 weeks ago

My wife and I went on a hike early this morning and we came across a pile of raw fish in the middle of the path.  We stopped because it was so out of the ordinary to see this here.  I started to kick the fish off the path and then 2 photographers came running out and started to ask why I was doing that.  Apparently they were off in the bushes hiding and placed the fish there to bait bobcats to photograph.  :blink:

Really?  They planted this stuff to lure in wild animals into this public path.  I don't know, I might be wrong, however I thought this was way unethical and could be harmful to the animals AND humans.  I argued the point, however these two photographers seemed to be lacking common sense. 

Let me get your opinion, do you feel this is right or wrong?

Plus the 3K is built no where near as strong as the 5k.  I have one of each and if you try to bend the 3k to close to the top, the legs pop out.  The 5k will not do this bending at the same spot.

Tony Monahan replied to the topic 'F/2.8 lenses as important today vs F/4?' in the forum. 1 month ago

Control of depth of field will always be an artistic control that is important.  We aren't talking about unit of measure that is performance related like ISO or MP.  So yes, it's very important, that f/2.8 and all the other stops Gary mentioned that fall below it too.

Both are good but one brings waaaay more flexibility along.


+1 agree, and that one is Arca Swiss

Tony Monahan replied to the topic 'How to Reframing an old canvas?' in the forum. 2 months ago

Yeah, can be done, you can likely scan this on a large format scanner then print away from there.
