When the question and answer portion of a photography podcast comes on, I can give you the answers to all the questions before I hear them. So if you have a question you plan on sending in to one of them, don’t bother. I’ve got your answer. Choose the one that applies:
* Each has a 30 day demo. Try them both, keep what you like. Unless you’re on a PC, then it’s Lightroom.
* RAW. Unless you’re shooting fast-moving sports, then JPG.
* 50mm/24 frames per second, or 60mm/30 frames per second.
* Sound is even more important.
* It doesn’t matter. It’s only gear. Use your vision.
* It depends on your shooting style.
* Your shooting style will develop as you take more pictures.
* With today’s cameras, you can shoot up to ISO 1600 without a problem and ISO 3200 with a little noise reduction.
* Buy the most expensive tripod you can afford.
* I have a closet full of camera bags.
* Arca-Swiss tongue and groove L bracket plate system. (That’s usually Scott Bourne.)
* The closer the light, the softer. The bigger the light source, the better.
* Focus one third of the way into the scene.
* Sharpen for output.
So take that hour I just saved you and go take some pictures! No, wait, that’s not podcast-approved. Go make pictures!
