Looked at the Nikon L810 and while the wife would love the red one, I thought the thing was slow, the HS25 however seemed to be very responsive and quick to focus sharply even on fully zoomed shots.

Just looking for other opinions before I buy in the next day or two.

Thanks!
I've got the Nikon L810. I Love It!







Small learning curve for a non-pro like me but it's a good rig.

Good Luck!

Looks fake, Curt. Did you do that with software or a tilt-shift lens?

Define 'fake'. There is some post processing done, with a touch of sharpening and tilt shift effect, but contrast and saturation/vibrancy are in-camera.

Some great advice in here- there's not really much to add to what has already been posted.

Those of you going to the trouble to use a light or two off camera should really check out the Strobist blog. Here's a good article explaining one method, using a single light and reflector/sheet of paper:

Some festival/fall items.... I am finding hat moving around outside, I switch between wanting a certain shutter speed/priority (1/250 o slower seems to let blue skies show better) and aperture setting/priority to control DOF.

Using a wide open lens (f/1.4) catches the powdered sugar midair:


Shutter speed of 1/250 or slower lets more fall color show:


And sometimes break the rules:

Does anyone know of a good online resource for Adobe Photoshop CS4 tutorials?

Thanks!

I use Kelby Training videos. You will probably find mostly CS5 and CS6 videos now, but CS4 and CS5 are not vastly different.

LOVE that first car especially!

I've been playing around with HDR a bit lately... it's a bit odd with food, but interesting here and there, in moderation and careful application!
