I got into an argument with my dad last night about how he says digital photography is cheating because of all the post editing you can do. My argument was "I shoot RAW, which is essentially digital negatives, then I 'develop' them on the computer." What side are you on?
Specifically in the world of photography. I've been throwing around the idea for a while about trying to get some professional shoots to try and start financing this (expensive) hobby. Any pros want to point out how you got where you are now?
A friend of mine who's just picked up photography has an Nikon D7000 with 18-105mm kit lens. He's looking for a new lens and asked me if I had any suggestions. I've never used the Nikon system so I have no insight into their glass, but I know you talented folks do.
TheGirlfriend asked a question today with her post titled: "Is there such a thing as too many photo? Warning: potentially too many photos" which got me thinking. What do you guys do to manage all of your pictures? If you shoot RAW, what do you do to manage the RAWs and the "developed" JPEGs?
So I'm thinking I need somewhere in the "clouds" to consolidate my photos as they seem to be everywhere, Facebook, external hard drives, computers, iPhone, etc. What site do you guys like the best?
Here's a good question for you guys. What are the differences between the metering modes and which one should I use for which type of shots?
I don't exactly know how to create/embed a poll, so I'll just ask, then tally up and post the results tomorrow morning!
