OMG, Now what!!!!  My autofocus is not working.  It works sometimes, but it is hit or miss.  I am not too close to the subject.  So what is happening??  It works just fine in live view.

Cindy I think it is supurb someone like you is embracing advanced technology. Winning international awards you must be so proud. I for one would love to see the works which were awarded these wonderful life thrilling moments. Could you please direct me to a site where they may be viewed so i may enjoy your accomplishments.

Thankyou.

So if I didn't "prove" that what I said was true, I apparently would have been written off as a troll.  Is that it?  Well what I may lack in technical ability I make up for in composition.  I have always said that if you don't have a good eye, the most expensive equipment isn't going to help you.  These days it isn't enough to use the camera skillfully, you have to also be good at photoshop.

But I'm still trying to get some help with the autofocus.  I think it may be a problem with the lens.  Gotta wait til Monday now to make yet another trip to the camera store.

If you think there are no world famous female wildlife photographers, you need to get out more.  Smiley Surprised

Re: Does spending more mean getting less?

I found only one women who had worked for National Geographic.  I am talking about the ones who really made it to the top.  I know there are a handful that are doing it but they haven't gotten the same attention as the men, who definitely outnumber them, but I am hoping this is changing.

Re: Does spending more mean getting less?

Men may out number females in photography, I really doubt it, because there are hundreds.  You just need to look.

My goodness you are a head strong person.  Try some of the suggestions you have recieved and do a search for female wildlife photographers.  Smiley Happy
