Don, Henry's 'Clearance Sale' price is the same as Aden's and Vistek's everyday price.  Meh.  I wouldn't read too much into it.

I'll contribute some black bear images :) .......









These were shot with a 1DIII and 300/2.8L IS.  I had to back up to get them in the frame.

:D


Love the bears Harv!  Where did you find them?


South shore of Rice Lake

If someone is concerned about their sensibilities being offended, they should never participate on any internet forum.  Period.

Portrait / Re: Girl and Horse
« on: December 22, 2013, 03:51:33 PM »
Rename the shot, it should be called horse and girl ;)
The horse is main subject to me, it looks sooo satisfied with life. The girl is a suppoting subject. The story may be a bit carelessly told since the horse is darker than the girl and also not in focus, but in terms of expression the horse is telling a great story. As for the examplephotos from harv, They do not work for me. The horse is not connecting. The girl is ok in the first shot but is facing the harsh light in the secind so she has to close her eyes.

My advice to Hammar, use a larget dof . Its a two subject portrait and both should be sharp in this case. Advice to harv, start with finding good light and then try to get expressions from your subjects. And if I stepped on toes now, I did not mean to insult anyone. Keep on shooting horse-hunan portraits. And merry christmas :)

We don't always have the luxury of choosing the light, time and place.  There are times we have to make do with what is available.  In my particular situation, the time and place was a given.  I would normally look for nice diffused light if available but in this case I settled for what you see to avoid cluttered and distracting backgrounds.  I wanted a background I could throw out of focus for these closeups and that determined the direction in which I had to shoot.

I don't take any offense by your comments and understand you are trying to be constructive.  For that I thank you.  However, I don't agree with one of your comments.  I think the horse and girl definitely connect.  Again, we don't all see things the same way.

Merry Christmas.

P.S.   My apologies to the OP.  It is not my intent to hijack this thread in any way.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Sony A7R shutter vibration problem?

But the Sony a7R has the best sensor available, which makes it a perfect camera. Everyone knows none of that other stuff matters.........   ::)

Neuro, you crack me up.   ;D

Personally, I think it's important to have both subjects in proper focus and to avoid harsh shadows such as we see on the girl's face.  This can be accomplished by simply repositioning the subjects.  Even in full sun.

Here are a couple of examples of what I mean.....





I offer this up as advice, not negative criticism so please accept it as such.

I don't think I could handle that unless it came equipped with wheels.  :D

Like Surapon, I have used a piece of foam pipe insulation over the window edge for years.  It works great and is always readily available as I keep it in a seat pocket in the car.  :D

Yes, Sir, Dear Mr. Harv.
That is a great old trick for all/ Almost Bird Photographers use for long time, Instead buy the $ 30 US Dollars Bag from  Camera Store., Yes, Sir , Me too, I put in my car Door pocket all the times.
Here is the Improve Pipe Insulation / Car's Window supporter, Add The End Wings , for not the Lens slip in to the window glass..
Enjoy

God idea adding the end stops.   The human mind is a wonderful thing.  :D

Actually, I like that look.  It also appears as though it's printed for being displayed in an upright position on the shelf, perhaps taking up less room.  ***shrug***
