Site of the day

I see that this site is today’s Site of the Day at – that’s great! Welcome, 1001 Noisy Camera fans.

As you will see, on this blog I teach daily – a teaching post every single day. Enjoy, and search back through the past year – many useful tips here from a working photographer and teacher to everyone who is interested!

Few posts of mine come without a snap or two, so here are a couple from yesterday’s shoot – the Hon. Minister Harinder Takhar MPP, a truly charming man:

I used three lenses: one long (70-200 on the 1D Mark IV) and two wide (24-70 and later 16-35 on the 1Ds Mark III).

  1. Congratulations, Michael, on “Site of the Day” citation! It’s great to know that many more photographers on all levels of the playing field will join those of us who already enjoy your daily shots, shared skills, tech info and idiosyncratic commentary. As well, we are aware of an added pool of shared ideas. Bonne fin de semaine!

  2. Michael, on your 3rd picture…you said a flash for fill.

    For fill flash, do you normally just set the flash to direct, and make TTL adjust the flash power? Or do you normally adjust the flash compensation to avoid over/under exposure?
