Not sure if this has been discussed before. But I was wondering if any of you ever had a photo assignment where the client gave you a task, you made a picture to the best of your understanding of the task. Liked it, send it to the customer. And the customer hated it.

I'll start with my example. I was asked to photograph the work of volunteers at a triathlon in my home town. They were overhauling their volunteers website, and wanted good pictures to go with the site. No budget, but I was asked nicely.

So, I went in, took lots of pictures and figured one in particular captured the whole story of the volunteers.



Their first reaction. "The volunteers are out of focus"

Which was exactly the point. The volunteers are there to make the athletes excel. This guy has a drink, because there are volunteers. I still like the picture, they went with some of my other pictures.

I would love you guys to share a similar story.

Lenses / Hard choice the 50 1.4 or 85 1.8
« on: February 19, 2014, 11:13:33 AM »
I've saved up enough for my next purchase, which will be a fast prime. I'm leaning towards the 50 1.4 which I used to have two years ago when I still had my 7D.

However, as I now shoot full frame, I am wondering if I should go for the 85 1.8, as it gives about the same view as my 50 did on the 7D.

As I'm buying second hand, I cannot really go and try the different focal lengths. I know both lenses are really good, the 85 is even said to be the sharpest lens canon makes.

Is the 85 as fast in focusing as the 50? will I like the view I'm used to better? or should I go with the 50 I loved so much?

(and yes, I already have the shorty forty)

Lenses / 8-15mm Fisheye owners - Is your copy centered?
« on: January 14, 2014, 09:09:45 AM »
I noticed my copy of the 8-15mm fisheye is not centered. The distance between the image circle and the left side of the image is shorter then the right side. Top and bottom is correct.

Can other owners check their copy?

I'd expect an L lens to be flawless in build. So if others dont have this, I'm exchanging it at the shop.
