I have been following your work for some time now. I love your shots. I am wondering if you can provide me with any suggestions on good equipment. I currently use 350D with either a 17-85mm IS or 75-300mm. I have been mostly disappointed with the quality of my shots, mostly they are quite soft. thetraveler[at]

Well, the Rebel's actually a pretty darned good camera for the money, and the 17-85 isn't a bad lens at all. I don't know much about the 75-300. If you want sharpness and your lens isn't giving it to you, I've found that the Photoshop plugin "Intellisharpen II" (I can't remember where I bought it, but if you Google it, it'll probably pop up) can be invaluable. I also try to shoot in RAW mode a lot because it gives you more latitude when it comes time to process the image. They take up way more space than a JPEG, but it works. :)
