Plastic on Wacom Grip Pen Became Sticky and Gunked Up

I have no idea how this happened, but seemingly overnight the rear half of my Wacom grip pen got super sticky. It felt like the same kind of residue left behind when you unsuccessfully peel a sticker off something. I did not spill anything on it or use it with dirty hands. It was (and I guess still is) so puzzling to me. First thought was to...

Ball head suggestions!

I’m looking to replace my current ball head (3 Legged Thing AirHed Neo) with somthing a little more sturdy. My biggest set up is a Canon 7d Mii with a Canon 70-200 f4. I don’t want to spend too much, but I would like something that lasts. Oh, and has friction control!


Transitioning from B&W to Color

My instagram to date is all black and white street photography.

I like black and white. But after a couple hundred images, I feel it's hard to incorporate color to the feed.

What do you think - gradually do it, or do it straight away?

Clean out B&W shots and start afresh with color?



Desperately Seeking a Loupedeck+ Tutorial

I recently purchased the second generation Loupdeck+ which I planned to use with Lightroom. Unfortunately the tutorials offered by the device creators are specific to the first generation hardware which differs significantly. They are also designed more as marketing tools; they tell you all the cool things you can do with a Loupedeck, but they...

Idea for photo ratings!

Hello everyone!

Firstly, this is to ask you all to please go rate and comment on the images on my portfolio, since a lot if images are rated either higher or lower than I would expect compared to my others, so I would like to get more votes on them.

Secondly, I have a suggestion to the staff. There should be some...

Colorbanding in Skies

Hey guys, so does anybody have insight on how to eliminate colorbanding from the blue sky while on location? Is there anything special one is to do to eliminate it from even getting in camera? I have seen video's on youtube about ways to remove in post but would love to not even have to get this far. I shoot with a d810 and a tokina 16-28mm...

Thanks and have a great day,

Fro guides - are they worth it?

Does anyone have any experience/recommendations - positive or negative - about the Fro Knows Photo video guides, specifically video editing and DSLR video?

I'm not hugely impressed by the way he approaches teaching and critique but I do think Todd knows his stuff and he seems heavily involved in these guides.

Any thoughts?

Filling my gear bag

As a new member, I'm trying to put some stuff in my gear bag. But.. It doesn't accept my Sony A65, nor my Minolta's. Actually, only the Mamiya rb67 is recognized.

Is there another way to fill this info as the database seems extremely limited and I don't see a way to add unknown equipment?

Categorising theatre photography?


I need to put a question out there about what to categorise theatre photography as? It's not technically 'concert' or 'event'. It could sometimes be classed as portrait, but that would be for individual images as opposed to an entire shoot of a play.

It's one of those annoying questions for me that only comes up when I do...

Trying to find my voice in photography.

As someone who is relatively new to photography it goes without saying that I like to shoot quite a bunch of different things.

Any tips on deciding what to focus on? Pun intended.

Any stories on how you decided or fell into your primary subject matter?

Thank you

Voting on New Images

Hi everyone,
I don't know whether everybody else has any doubts about this but how does one get the community to view your images . I've tried posting in the various groups but there is hardly any response. I don't think I'm a terrible photographer as I regularly get good votes. But ,hardly any eyeballs. Its quite disheartening.


Scanning 35 mm film

I'm just begining to do my first scannings with 35 mm film. I'm using an Epson V200 (old model) but I do appreciate your recommendations with the best values to start with, to scan them.
I have seen that I can control several items in the scanner, but still have many doubts.

This is just one example of what I got with my first film...
