  1. This is one of my favorite animal photographers! She has an entire section of her website dedicated to the gear she uses, as well as blog posts on her lenses - http://scruffydogphotography.com/index.php/the-scruffy-dog-gear-2/ She also offers mentoring if you ever want to learn from her one on one.
  2. Can you fill this out real quick for us? http://www.damiensymonds.com.au/thread1.html If you mean just 12 GB of hard drive space, that could definitely be part of the problem.
  3. i may or may not have done this. did the same thing with spinning/fiber arts too. just can't do anything the proper way. LOL!
  4. Have you checked the focus on this yet? The little boys eyes seem OOF and I think thats the most important part, right?
  5. You can add contrast back in when you move to PS. But in raw, preserve the details.
  6. Some labs offer a "true black & white" that might help you out here. Worth looking into!
  7. Yes, you can always sign up right here: http://www.damiensymonds.net/trainingraw.html There is a waiting still, I believe, for the Deluxe version - but you can get started reading right away.
  8. If you are currently a member, then just head over here and start that the "Table of Contents" http://ask.damiensymonds.net/forum/10-the-raw-class/ If your membership has expired, then you can renew here: http://ask.damiensymonds.net/topic/1331-raw-class-deluxe-extension-2a/ or here for standard (can't post images for feedback): http://ask.damiensymonds.net/topic/1332-raw-class-standard-downgrade/
  9. Which movie? I was able to look it up on IMDB for the recent one, but I'm guessing you could look up the old ones too. For The Force Awakens: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2488496/technical
  10. You should be able to just open File/Windows Explorer or Finder and select them all and drag+drop them into the dropbox loader. Is that not what you've been doing? The XMP files are always separate from the raw files. It sounds like you might have been converting to DNG somewhere along the way if you've never had to deal with the XMP files before.
  11. Sometimes this pops up because you accidently saved it as "progressive" or one of those other weird JPEG versions. It also sometimes pops up because ROES is just dumb. Can you first try updating ROES, then try restarting your computer? And then try saving them again, making sure it's on Baseline/Standard?
  12. While that is the correct size, I've had better luck cropping to that ratio (851:315) - and then resizing to 2048px on the long side. This seems to look better across all devices, whereas resizing to the exact size can make it look bad on mobile.
