  1. On YouTube, Anthony Morganti has an extensive series of tutorials, totally free.
  2. Thank you for the clarification, Dave. I did not know that LR limits this capability to Nikon/Canon users. Sorry for my misleading and misinformed post. Dan
  3. Vic, if you are already a Lightroom user, it has tethering capability built in. If you are not, I think you can get a week free trial from Adobe. (I am not sure about the free trial, so check out the Adobe Creative Cloud website.)
  4. Also, if you use Lightroom, the book module in LR exports directly to Blurb for book printing. You set up the book in LR and export directly to Blurb.
  5. This should be fairly straightforward. (I shoot Nikon, not Sony, but the process should be similar. If I am wrong, Sony people on this board will surely correct me.) There are several ways to do this. The easiest is if your PC has a card slot. If so, simply remove the memory card from your camera and insert it into the card slot. Then, it should be a simple matter of dragging and dropping files. If your PC does not have a card slot, the second way of doing this is to purchase an external card reader, plug it into a USB port and drag and drop. Finally, third option, your camera should have come with a USC cable to connect your camera to the PC. Do so, and the PC will see your camera as an external hard drive. Drag and drop. Hope this helps.
  6. I do not know this to be true in your case, but I have found in the past that Abes of Maine was often selling gray goods. Gray goods are real product, but not intended to be imported in the US market. In other words, they are goods that are not authorized to be sold in the US. Although you can sometimes get a good deal on gray goods, you should be aware that the manufacturer will not typically honor any warranty claims. In fact, in many cases, the manufacturer will not repair a defective product, even if you offer to pay for you. Again, I do not know that this is true in your case. I do know that I looked into Abes in the past for Nikon products that they were offering to sell, and they were not an authorized Nikon dealer. Your choice to purchase gray goods depends on how good a deal you are getting, and your level of comfort with purchasing goods for which the manufacturer may not repair under warranty.
  7. Suggest you look into a "dry bag." It is basically a bag made from heavy plastic with a roll-up and closable top for maritime use. It is not for submersion. They are available on Amazon in a wide variety of sizes.
  8. I find LR to be flexible in this regard. I have found no restrictions on the layout, size of photos, number of photos per page, text, fonts, background colors, etc.
  9. Very nice photos. I too make books using Blurb. For those of you who use Lightroom and don't know, the book module in LR integrates with Blurb. You can create a photo book in LR and upload it directly from LR to Blurb for printing. I have done this in the past and been quite pleased with the quality from Blurb.
  10. Ken, sorry this happened. May I ask through whom you purchased insurance. This seems like a good idea. (If my question is against forum rules, please feel free to delete.) Dan
  11. I am revisiting a photo project I started a year ago on the diners of New Jersey. This is the Colonial Diner in East Brunswick shot at dusk.
  12. "At the Bar." My vision for this photo had the people in total silhouette. Basically, exposed for the background then further reduced the exposure of the people in post.
  13. Do photos taken at the zoo count?
  14. Polly. Nikon D750. Nikkor 70-200 f2.8 at 200 mm. ISO 200. 1/200 sec at f 2.8.
  15. A couple of notes on this topic. I try not to buy gray market goods. Not only is there no US warranty, but as far as I know the US distributor for the goods will not even fix the product if you offer to pay for it. (I am a Nikon shooter, and the last time I checked, this was true for Nikon USA. I assume it is also true for other US distributors.) However, I have found refurbished goods to be a good deal. Everything Nikon product that I purchased refurbished has appeared as if it was brand new, and is sold at a discount.
