  • Jim, I haven't used the Tokina 11-16 so I can't really comment. However, I am glad you liked the presentation. A wide-angle lens definitely stretches your mind on the possibilities!

  • Thank you for this helpful overview. Your sublte humor and the use of your own photos as examples really adds to the presentation. What your opinion of the Tokina 11-16? Thanks again.

  • Thanks for meeting with us today Ask who is into digital photography? DSLR? Show DSLR – Entry-level is $400-600 with it quickly going to $2-3000 and upwards of $8,000 – not counting the various lens and accessories “ Approximately every 12 seconds, a digital single-lens reflex camera (DSLR) camera is sold in the US on the hopes of making outstanding, potentially sellable photographs.  Unfortunately, for most of the 150 million purchasers of high-resolution cameras in North America, this dream remains, simply that, just a dream.    The 200+ page manual that comes with the camera is practically undecipherable and does not explain how to make outstanding photographs.  On the Internet, there are few sites that truly explain the essence of a compelling photograph. Founded about a year ago, WeArePhotographers.com has been designed by photographers for photographers to help “Elevate Your Talent”.   WeArePhotographers.com will become the recognized destination for online digital photography content for the advanced enthusiast and entry-level professional.   Think “American Idol Meets Online Digital Photography”:
