I just say "thank you". They're usually impressed more by the lens even though they said camera. Unless they want to engage in a discussion, anything other than thank you just seems snaky to me to something that was likely given as a compliment.
I went to the Birch Aquarium in La Jolla yesterday morning to try my hand at aquarium photography for the first time. What a humbling experience. Of the 125 frames that I shot these seven are the only ones worth posting.
We will be in Iceland for 14 days this summer, driving the Ring Road, snaefelksness Peninsula and the Latrabarg Cliffs. Does anyone have any suggestions on “don’t miss” things to see and places to photograph?
Bring lots of cash or your credit card will work in most all places
Hi All I'm doing a 10 day trip to New York City in September and looking for some tips - where to go shoot. Is it better to get advanced passes (tickets) to the regular sites - Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty etc. ? Any suggestions on teaming up with a professional photographer that does group walk-around. I want to do some street photography - night photography.
James Maher comes to mind - has anyone joined his groups?
Since you have so much time, a double decker bus tour would highlight areas thst might interest you. You can get off, look around, get something to eat or drink and reboard another bus
