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?

Portrait / Re: Brenizer Method First Try

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.

Andy_Hodapp,

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!

Jack

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!!!!

This maybe just my battle torn lens needing some realignment sense the bottom left corner is the biggest problem.

That would be it, get it repaired - I got even my new lens unaligned and had it replaced. Most CA is easily corrected nowadays, and the corner problem (if you take shots that need this) of the 17-40L diminishes a lot if stopped down - be sure to check with existing sample shots on the net after repair to see if it works properly by then.

So send it to Canon? How long and how much would you guess?

I haven't tried the 16-35 but I will say the corners on my 17-40 are terrible.  When your at the wider side of the lens, the corners are filled with chromatic aberration.  When I was shooting on crop, it was a great lens but now it definitely falls short of expectations.  I've had to crop some of my photos taken at 17 (even stopped down to f/11 or greater) because the corners were unusable.  This maybe just my battle torn lens needing some realignment sense the bottom left corner is the biggest problem.

Some shots with my Canon 5d mkii and 50mm 1.8.  Most of the shots are at about 10 seconds F/1.8, iso 1600, all are in my backyard in Montana.











Very nice work!  Is the third image not a stitched pano?

The first and the third as panos
