Fantastic work - really striking images - the lighting in the first two is superb.
If you want some feedback, the one I like the least is the bikini model (well not the model  :D - just the photo).
I find the pose awkward - she looks like she is trying to do a one armed sit-up - and the highlights in the water are blown. However, the lighting of her and her skin tone are great...

here you go
I think the 200 is the way to go over the 170
That is incredibly helpful
I really appreciate it!
Thank you!

I can put that  gear in a 200AW if you like tonight and post a pic for you to see
That would be extremely helpful - Thanks

For the Olympics, I need a small bag to fit:
70-200 2.8 IS II
2x converter
+-580EX for focus assist (not essential as I am only going to one indoor event)

The bag must be less than 25L and the smaller the better

The Lowepro Nova 170 AW looks like it might fit the bill - can anyone let me know if it will fit this gear?

Thanks for any help!

That second video might interest the Apple patent lawyers....

In lists of lenses compatible with the 1.4x and 2x Canon extenders, I don't see the 100mm 2.8L Macro....
Is this because it would be an unusual (stupid?) combination, or because they don't work together?

Lighting / Lighting for macro shots of animal eyes
« on: May 10, 2012, 02:06:49 PM »
Slightly obscure/specialist question
I am looking for the best way to light animal eyes in macro shots of them...
Ring flash reflects in the cornea, and can obscure the area of interest (these photos are to show problems in the eyes for a veterinary audience)
Off camera flash works some with a single hand-held flash held almost at 90 degrees (get one reflection instead of a ring, obscuring less of the eye) - but multiple off camera flashes gets very clunky to try and get close to a moving target and can scare off the animals (and their owners)
So the question boils down to:
Is there a way to avoid reflections on a macro photo of a reflective surface, in a handheld solution?

Thanks for any advice

United Kingdom & Ireland / Final rules for Olympics Spectators?
« on: April 27, 2012, 08:20:24 AM »
Does anyone know the final rules for cameras for Olympics Spectators. They were supposed to be released last week, but I can't find them.
I have heard rumors of all of the following - hoping if there is a rule, it's i)
i) Camera and lens < 12 inches long
ii) lens < 6 inches long
iii) no detachable lens
iv) No focal length > 300mm

Any insights?
