    Thanks everyone. I've got a little hung up on this detail, so in future I will trust my gut more. :)

    Converging verticals... Yay or Nay?

    Okay, so everyone knows that converging verticals can be a distracting photographic element. They can also be used to artistic effect. However, I've always had a hard time deciding where the line...

    I'll keep my tip simple: Get low.

    It will generally provide a more pleasing perspective for little animals.

    Photos with dogs running towards the camera, ideally outdoors, are usually nice. With...

    I believe it was the latter half of a 200m fly. His technique wasn't great, but it made for the more impressive photograph.

    I really haven't a clue, but I was amused by the comment left on it.

    Apologies for my unhelpful reply - at least you're smart enough to have insurance!

    I tend to shoot in AWB (auto white balance) most of the time because that way, in post, I get all of the pre-set white balances, and the raw converter's auto white balance option, and the camera's...

    Ah I see, yes the newer version is called the 60D. I'm afraid I don't know anything about the D60 but as long as it shoots RAW and the files are supported, the advice above is the same. :)

    Yes, those are decent catchlights. I noticed you said you have D60 - do you actually mean the 60D? (Canon made both but the D60 is significantly older).

    I'll offer my input on the 4 pictures you've posted. White balance seems to be a consistent issue for you. The first photo is too green, for sure. Shooting RAW is the easiest way to correct odd...

    I'd pick the IS version I because it has weather sealing, whereas the f/2.8 non-IS doesn't. Could be make or break during a wedding downpour.

    Also... sometimes during weddings you're struggling to...

    The default ACR camera profile is "Adobe Standard", which is quite liberal on the saturation.

    Open the Camera Calibration tab in ACR and alter the camera profile to your taste.
