Speedlites, Printers, Accessories / Photo Paper advice
« on: September 20, 2013, 10:43:47 PM »
I just bought a Canon Pixma Pro-100 thanks to the incredibly good deal post rebate (printer and paper cost me $80) and I'm looking for some advice/suggestions on paper.  I had to buy a 50 sheet pack of Canon SG-201 Semigloss 13"x19". So far, I like it for everyday printing.  I'm looking for something a little higher quality for gallery quality prints.  (mostly landscape/nature. Not a lot of portraits)  Don't mind spending the money for $3 a sheet for really fine paper. What can everybody recommend.  Also if anybody has any recommendations to replace the canon paper for a little less money, I'm open to those suggestions too.

Thanks for the help.

Landscape / Printing services... Where do I go?
« on: March 06, 2013, 06:42:23 PM »
I'm interested in what advice the community can offer in terms of professional printing labs.  I'm an advanced amateur/emerging pro and I'm trying to get some of my work printed in professional quality.  I've already placed an order with Bay Photo. I got the same picture printed 3 different ways in order to compare finishes. I was impressed with the prices and services they offer, we'll see how the images turn out. Can anybody offer a suggestion for another lab to try?

Landscape / Shooting locations in O'ahu.
« on: January 16, 2013, 10:27:40 PM »
I headed to Honolulu on business during the first week of February.  This will be my first time in Hawaii and I'm looking for suggestions on where/what to shoot during my very limited free time on the island.  I will only be able to visit O'ahu (no other islands) and I will be busy until mid-afternoon.  Any ideas for great sunset locations, or other ideas out there.  I'll have my 60D with lenses covering 17-200mm.  The only thing I'm planning on so far is Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona memorial.

Help and suggestions is greatly appreciated.

Lenses / Thinking about a 17-40 f4L USM. Thoughts?
« on: November 02, 2012, 08:03:13 PM »
I'm thinking about purchasing a 17-40 f/4L USM.  Anyone out there with one of these have any reasons why I should or should not go through with it.  It will be my first L glass.  After this I plan on a 70-200 f/2.8. 

I'm mostly a landscape/nature shooter so I don't really need it any faster (usually shoot f/8-f11 on a tripod). And I was looking at my last 6 months of shots and most of my keepers are under 50mm focal length anyway. Every review said this lens gives the best IQ for the money (and sometimes better than more expensive lenses).

If there is something else I should get in the sub $1k range, I'm open to suggestions. I'm looking for any real world experiences from this lens.  I'm just hoping to buy before the $100 rebate ends.
