5D MK III Sample Images / NYC images + Timelapse video (night to day)
« on: June 06, 2013, 01:06:44 AM »
Hey guys, 
I took a trip down to NYC from Boston last week for some work stuff, and grabbed a few shots during the day, as well as an 8 hour timelapse (2 minute intervals, Vello Shutterboss)
I didn't have much time to take photos unfortunately, other than while I was asleep :)

Timelapse was 5D3, 17-40L @ f/8, AV mode, ISO 800.   I used LRTimelapse and Premiere to create the video @ 15fps - in retrospect i should have set shorter intervals to get a longer video and smoother effect.

Make sure you watch in HD!

Lenses / Need lens rental advice for group photo

Hi guys,
The company I work for has a yearly photo (about 60 people this year) and i've got the honor of setting this up.  I did this last year as well, but I want a higher quality result and will spend more time arranging the scene+people this year.

The last photo was taken on a tripod at eye level (over 6 feet) with a 5D2 and Zeiss 21mm Distagon @ 5.6.  Two wirelessly-triggered flashes were used (580II + 430II) cross-firing across the scene through umbrellas.   To further complicate things, the group of people is standing with their backs to a large set of open windows overlooking a city square.  (actually here's a small version of the photo instead)

I know that this year, i want to elevate the camera (5D3, maybe on a ladder) and perhaps move it off-center.  This will help make everyone more visible, and hopefully be more compositionally pleasing.
I also know that the Ziess 21mm, although world-class, isn't the best choice for this situation (horizontal distortion towards the edges). 
Would the 17/24mm TS-E be a good choice for a group portrait?  I'm mostly interested in minimizing distortion/bulging limbs and faces, and keeping things wide enough to capture the whole group.  Sharpness is important as well, since a fair amount of the image will be cropped.
My other choice would be the 24mm f/1.4L, but i'm open to any suggestions.

So yes...any ideas on lenses?   

5D MK III Sample Images / Boston Panorama

3 image panorama of the skyline from Fan Pier -

Taken with my 5D3 and Sigma 10-20mm f/3.5 (which isn't meant for FF, but at 15mm is quite usable and gave me some stunning results)
ISO 400
All in-camera optimizations disabled,  assembled in Photoshop CS5.5 and PP'd in Lightroom 4.1

I don't often do large images like this,  let me know what you think!

Street & City / Boston at Night
« on: July 22, 2012, 12:09:00 PM »
Grabbed a few decent shots this weekend,  the ultra-wide ones are with my Sigma 10-20 f/3.5 (which oddly works better on my FF camera than my old T2i, vignetting aside)
Rest are 50 f/1.4 i believe

Take care!

5D MK III Sample Images / Results from my first week with the 5D3

I've been lurking around here since late 2011, in eager anticipation of the 5D3's announcement. 
My first DSLR was a T2i, purchased in October 2010.  I've accumulated a few lenses since then - 50 f/1.4, 70-200L f/4, 28 f/1.8, and Sigma 10-20 f/3.5 (which now needs to be replaced with a FF equivalent).

I do primary event and street photography, some concerts, and occasional landscapes. 

Here are a few shots i've grabbed in the last couple days - more to folow.

Take care,
