Andy, great job, I like the splashed water shots the best.

This was the only meet with the steeplechase, couldn't resist getting photos of people jumping into freezing water on a cold day!

As someone using a Tamron bag their parents bought before they were even born and a cheap bag that came free with my first camera, I REALLY hope I win this!

#4 is of the steeple in the steeplechase, just thought it was a cool picture of it in the reflection of the water.  Here are some other shots I got.

I call this one crab man!

Didn't have enough practices to run in our teams first meet so I brought my camera, 5d mkii and 200mm F/2.8 II.  Never been much into sports photography but everyone wanted some photographs of themselves in action.  Here are my favorites out of the some 400 shots I took today.

Speaking of Samyang, just found their 14mm is on sale for $309 with lightroom 5 and some other useless stuff.  Anyone want to convince me not to get this and upgrade to lr5?

That only works out to a 66mm f1.3.

But great shot, especially for a first try at the technique.

Thank you, how do you find out want it is equivalent to?  Also should I try doing this with my 50 1.8 for a more pronounced effect?

Try setting the ten second timer as well as using the remote cable release.  When ever I use longer lenses this makes a huge difference.

Portrait / Brenizer Method First Try
« on: March 01, 2014, 08:21:15 PM »
Thought I would try today the brenizer method aka bokeh panorama.  Asked my friend to help me with it, by modeling.  The photo itself isn't really anything special but I know I'll need this technique down the line for clients looking for extremely large portrait prints.  24 shots on a Canon 5D MKii with 200mm F/2.8 L II at F/4, ISO 400, 1/200th.

you can see some of the mistakes I make with the spot heal tool in Lightroom, should have used the heal brush in Photoshop and taken more photos further way from my subject.

It must be exciting to have the opportunity.  I rarely see an eagle and then only golden.  Bet you were wishing you had a longer lens or could get closer!


Right now in the process of choosing a longer lens.  Tamron 150-600mm?  I did try and get closer but he flew away, but not before I got a shot of him flying!!!!
