Wedding Photography / Re: Tough LARGE group photo
« on: November 11, 2014, 06:33:29 PM »
pabst photo? that's my beer!(and the beer of hipsters, but i don't hold that against them, or the fact that they jsut sold out to russians)

I find myself doing this from time to time, and it sounds like you told the client what i always tell them with these things. You did very well, and i'd certainly be pleased with that result. I second what Mt Spokane says, but of course there almost always seems to be room for improvement with such things. I monday morning quaterback the hell out of my work sometimes.
  As for the guy talking about pano, i would have done it, but then i would have taken some single exposure stuff as a safety net. you would think that the people would know how important it is try and make it work for the photo guy, and extension the client(your friend) but people just don't behave. i don't have much faith that people can even post for a shot like this without giving me the finger, or some other sly move. maybe even pull a "Teen Wolf" type of background thing(it's a thing, google it). i wouldn't put it past many.
  anyway, good work, i'm sure they will be pleased.

I'm not totally against this lens cap photo comparison, but i'd much prefer photos of a real life scene. i just don't trust that the camera bodies are being honest with what they are showing me. in regards to what the cameras might be doing, in the words of han solo, "i can imagine quite a bit."
   now back to "bidness" as usual (insert DR range comments)

what? 2 replies while i was typing, if they are on topic i'm drinking a second beer! or should that be the other way around?   
  - this just in, CR forum drinking game, so everytime someone types something about DR we all take a shot of jager!

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: I took the cheap road to FF
« on: November 10, 2014, 04:59:55 PM »
i use my 5d all the time. honestly, unless i'm planning on shooting a bit of video, or really want that faster frame rate for something, i'll grab the lens that i want, and go with whatever body is attached, 5dc or 5dmk3. on an IQ perspective, i don't think there is a whole lot between them at lower isos actually.

i don't think that would get it done either. Roger at lensrentals found lots of problems with sensor stack thickness and adapted lenses.

So when you have a silll photographer and a videographer working the same event, what is the professional etiquette?  Which one gets "priority"?

But in any case, it looks like this videographer was not very considerate.  But then we are only getting one side of the story. I wonder if this videographer is on another forum talking about this wedding he shot were this still photographer kept getting in the way.   ;)

in every job i've worked the photo guy took the lead, and i would jump in front of the video guy if need be. i wouldn't unless needed, but i would and do in a heartbeat. these photos of the video guy at the alter are standard fair for me. really, this is ashame, but i get this all the time. you try to work the angles to not get them  in the shot but it's a fast moving flowing situation, and often you get what you get. unless you want to take over the whole damn thing and stage it all, and i don't and the bride/groom don't either. so you get what you get.
   when someone gets dropped off, and you're not buds that already agreed to hook up people with a ride, you are being put on notice that you are in the sh)t.

  the reaction here to this post is much nicer than when i came on here to talk about what had happened to me some time ago. if i recall correctly it was a wedding guest hounding me all night, setting up shots(not wanted or requested),asking me if i had any batteries she could use, as her flash was eating them due to the dark reception venue, and generally annoying me all day. i seem to recall you guys saying something to the effect that i was a whiner and that i should deal. well, of course i did deal and i did the job. sometimes you guys can ....  ah,forget it

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: One Samsung Camera to Rule Them All
« on: November 02, 2014, 08:13:24 PM »
i stopped visiting petapixel about a year ago. to many articles written by the clueless for the clueless.
i'm going to be watching the ravens-steelers game in a few minutes. i'll be on the lookout for sideline photogs running samsung. i won't be holding my breath.

my wife doesn't throw my things away. instead she tricks me into thinking i don't want/need them anymore and i then get rid of them myself. it's jedi mind tricks.

so i posted here, then i went over to that thread where i asked people to find the fault in a shot and i see that you posted there also. then i got back to cutting pumpkins and thought, i bet that was sarcasm. if so, that would explain it, and that's a good one. nice..

Sorry it's not oriented properly. the software i use to view images takes care of that for me, and sometimes i forget   that. like this time.

 all good answers, but Cervantes wins.
   thanks for playing!

 punk kids!

Thanks!
Actually i took that shot in a rush in response to someone else posting a shot of a newer "stax" headphone. i thought, i use those, well, a much older version, but close enough for me.

EOS Bodies / Re: It's just me but...

i don't feel that my 5dmk3 is aging. my 5d"c" is starting to, but it's still very good, most of the time it just needs more input from me.  is it just me, or did the 24-105 get listed like 3 times in this thread as having come out this year? do you guys just need to buy something? I've got a friend like that, retail therapy he calls it.

Lenses / Re: Night Sky

I think you are going to have to figure out what focal length is going to give you what you want in your photos, framing wise. I'm pretty new at this also, but i've been able to gleam a few things. If you are going to be using a 100mm instead of say 24mm you are going to have to make adjustments for star trails by using a shorter exposure time. And while your 100mm will go to f2.8, you will find that you can get more light(exposure) from your 24mm f4 due to the ability to keep the exposure time longer. that is, 2.8 is 2x light as f4, but 100mm needs about 4x less exposure time than 24mm before you start to get star trails, so you've given up that 2.8 advantage plus some.
  please excuse me if you know all this. We get all kinds in here, and i for one sure don't know everything, and i don't expect others to either, so ...  so there you go i guess.
