I think you have an ease with people - perhaps you could slightly lower their expectation of a professional shoot and raise expectation of a fun one. That is what you could communicate - but of course 'you' would do your best for a professional shoot. Then if you exceed their expectations - you win and they win.

just a thought...

and congrats on the opportunity

This is just one of some incredible scenery I captured this year at Mt. Rainier. I have a batch from this last week that's not processed yet, but easily the best photos I have ever taken. :D

Many photos focus stacked, stitched, and exposure blended. I think it took around 17 hours to put together.

I sure don't like using my pen for the above, but many do. I know that a stylus pen is supposed to do that work but I prefer just using my finger... using a pen is too 'jittery' IMO

Are you talking about using your finger on a mouse button or on the touch pad of a laptop? I've never had a laptop and haven't mastered using the touch pads on them. But I realize a lot of you are doing your editing on laptops instead of desktops.

The new tablet, when first installed, was WAY too sensitive. Just resting the pen on the surface was like the equivilent of a left-click on the mouse. But just increasing the pen's pressure in the tablet's driver settings made it much more manageable. It takes just a slight pressure on the pen tip now to make it operational.

By comparison my old tablet was like working with a chisel and mallet!

Airplane was broke yesterday for half the day. Got to do some touring of Twin Falls. Midday sun, but I really like shooting at that time unlike a lot of photographers. I like the contrast and clarity it invokes.

I'm referring to using a pen on my Wacom Bamboo versus just using my finger. I find the pen is too jittery when editing - there doe snot seem to be a way to reduce that jitteryness. Obviously it is mimicking my own micro-movements...

In the Bamboo controls I have just given it a 'softer' point versus a harder point and will test it when I have time.

Thanks for that but that's not what i meant. I meant real bad guys ripping off your gears and may hurt you. It happens. Saw one in the news before of an ugly MM meetup.

Haha paranoid me.

this page on dpreview about the 70D Preview does not have me all warm and fuzzy about shooting better Birds in Flight vs the 60D...

Why? They don't even discuss it really...most of the page is about the dual pixel AF...

Stellar shot Johan. Was this taken recently, or is it too late to head up to Rainier to catch the wildflowers?

Often I see members on here talking about their software and Operating Systems and I think, they must be patient people, but that is the tools they are prepared to work with. No skin off my nose, but I worry that they often waste money on upgrading RAM that isn't going to be effective or efficient.
More RAM is better ... but only if the computer is ACTUALLY able to use it.

That's a very good point... I've been using the 64 bit version of Windows 7 for some time, and I haven't kept up with limitations on RAM usage under the 32 bit version. I remember that XP limited you to 3GB, no matter how much you stuffed in the machine.

LR5 runs fine with 4GB of RAM until you start doing local adjustments with the adjustment brush. Then the usage spikes quite a bit. On my AMD desktop it went from ~300M of RAM to nearly 2GB in pretty short order. Just open task manager and play around a bit in LR.

Hi Keyan, (yeah I was just mainly voicing some impatience)

but that's what I mean - yes I understand the dual pixel AF is revolutionary 'for video and live view' and it seems deserving of hype... but I'm disappointed dpreview has little to say about the 70D AI Servo tracking abilities - but yes there is a quasi-review by that swedish guy Brutus Östling who did a one sided review... meaning he was full of praise but has -zero- complaints about the 70D, which seems 'odd' coming from a Pro wildlife photographer... I mean its not a 1DX... but there was no mention of 'anything' negative or lacking (except something about he has big hands and the touch-screen could be tricky or something like that...)

So I'm looking much forward - as you surely are - to positive AI Servo reviews of the 70D and how it is better than the 60D... which is 80+% of why I would purchase it

yeah Win 8 64 bit here... 6gig ram and pretty frustrated sometimes at "program not responding"

so I shut it down and re-open and that re-freshens things for a bit...
as I wrote in an Adobe survey recently - I'm hopeful things are more responsive and speedy in 5.3 ;)

I have a new fave for an event. this was shot with Off camera flash in a bracket + demb diffuser.

Flash was pointing backward and put the demb like a back wall. 5D+50mm at F3.2 ISO250 1/200sec
