▶  “ I suggest bracketing because you’re taking a shot every so often if you bracket and do not bracket like a one-stop bracket, like two stops, two stops up, two stops down. That way, you won’t miss an exposure. Just put it on bracketing.”

▶  “I always tell people to get the biggest monitor you can afford. But you’re looking at it, and you’re making a judgment on noise based on this big. Yes, you’re going to see noise on 100% at an image size. No one’s going to see it. That’s why I  always tell photographers to stop looking at your image at a size that no one will ever see but you.”
