PF 10th Anniversary - Free Marketplace Access!
Posted By Adam
Replies: 16
Views: 5,047
Back when PF was a relatively new community, our Marketplace wasn't as structured as it is today, and it was open to all members.

As a treat to members who have participated on the forums over the course of our 10-year tenure, I'd like to extend free marketplace access to anyone with 1 or more forum posts as of today (who hasn't yet has a chance to try the Marketplace). Shoot me a PM and you'll receive marketplace access through the end of September :)

Thanks everyone! Don't miss the other 10th anniversary specials on the forum.

Update: the cutoff for access requests will be 9AM PDT on September 8th.

Organising your Lightroom workflow

Although I've been using LR for a few months, I haven't - until now - organised my workflow particularly well. I imported images into the default date folders, worked on them in situ, exported to a general export folder set up in Pictures, and that was that. It was getting pretty messy.

After searching online for something else related to Lightroom, I came across this excellent tutorial video that proposes a standard way of organising captured, edited and exported images. At first, it seems like quite a bit of trouble to go to, but it's actually very straightforward and logical. I've started working through my existing folders and images to re-organise them using this method. Combined with key-wording and ratings, I think it's a really good approach to digital asset management...

Recommendations for twin-zoom camera bag?

This is a good idea :)

My current shoulder bag (for carrying everything I *might* possibly need, but rarely use more than a couple of bits!) is a Kata Lite 445 DL (which I got very cheaply when Kata was bought out by Manfrotto, and one of the UK dealers started selling off their Kata stock at silly prices :D). In standard configuration it has six lens-sized pockets, one of which is used to house the lens that is attached to the camera. I use one of the lens pockets to hold my "junk" - spare batteries, charger, USB cable, cleaning cloth, small dust blower, shutter remote etc.. The four corner lens pockets hold anywhere from four to eight lenses, usually primes. I usually have the DA20-40 on the camera (or, recently, the DA16-85), and have the battery grip on the camera too, with my strap screwed into the base (not shown in the photos), and coiled up next to the camera. This fits into the bag with the lens facing down into the pocket. Resting next to the camera I have the DA55-300 in its pouch, or my flash in its pouch (though that's a bit of a squeeze!). In the front pockets of the bag I have a CPL, variable ND and gradient ND filters, and some step up rings. Memory cards go in the little internal pockets, along with some Boots alcohol lens wipes and another cleaning cloth in case I drop my main one. There's another decent sized pocket on the back of the bag that I use to store a grey card, notebook and pen and the Pentax sensor cleaning stick / papers.

This is way more stuff - *way* more :D - than I ever need with me, and what I'm looking for would only need to hold the camera + grip with the 20-40 or 16-85 attached, the DA55-300, some filters and a cloth...

HELP am I stupid? Bowens Gemini 500W/s R Pulsar Monolight Kit
Posted By Snappertim
Replies: 7
Views: 1,406
Both Mono heads should have a Sensor in them that detects flash and automaticaly fires, the Gemini range has a rocker switch on the back for turning this function on it is marked "cell", check the sensor window its the red square above the rear switches at the back make shure this is not dirty or covered, you can if you wish suppliment the sensor in the Gemini by using a triger switch that plugs into the 1/4 jack socket at the rear, they look like a golf ball with a audio plug sticking out, if the flash is very directional the slave in the gemini might have trouble picking up the first flash, use a moulded microphone lead (standard audio plug to line socket, only 2 contacts one black line on the plug) from Tandy and use this to position the additional sensor switch where it will defiantly see the first.

Night International Space Station sinks in the East over U.K.

Thanks, I had the same problem the next night.

Went to a local reservoir with my daughter to get a good shot at 23:30 when the next high pass was due.

I was looking for the glow from the city in the west about 20 miles away + a little thin cloud to get the colour + reflections in the water + a nice long trail in a portrait shot.

There was too much cloud and I got cocky thinking that I could estimate where the ISS trail would be in the shot. In fact I got it just passing out of shot in the top left corner.

A rubbish picture, but at least I got to appreciate the quietness, my daughter's company, the clouds of bats coming to look at us and the sounds of all the little animals (critters ;) ) around us in the dark.

As I was driving down one of the park roads I noticed this huge raven in the trees. I was not going to stop as the jet black raven against a cloudless sky is a tough shot , not to mention who the heck wants to see a raven :lol:. But up to that point I had not captured much so I figured what the heck I am here and I got nothing but time. First shot was nothing special. Then he spread his wings. As I started to process this shot , I kind of like it. Anwyay that's my story :D

There was a massive tribute and show of support to all who brought the tragic events of the past week to a better ending for the city of Boston Ma.Fenway Park was packed and when Big Papi (David Ortiz) spoke he used an expletive on live TV that even the FCC winked at.:cool:. Neil Diamond showed up and sang "Sweet Caroline"(a crowd favorite song in Fenway Park) and shortly afterward in the bottom of the 8th inning the Red Sox took the lead and won this emotional game.Boston needed a win in more ways than one and this was a great start.--charliezap

Night Milky Way and Sunrise

Thanks everyone, it was amazing to see just how much of the night sky light pollution was hiding. Even though I brought my telescope, I spent most of the night just gazing at the milky way and taking pictures, I can't wait to go back.

Yeah, I used a flashlight to light up the road. These are all taken with an ordinary tripod at 30 seconds or less to avoid trailing. But I pushed the K-x to the limit with very high iso's and used several PP techniques to bring out faint stars and details. Sometimes I stack pictures of the stars, but these are all single exposures.
