Canon General / Re: Photographer Profile: Drew "Rukes" Ressler

I think photography is very subjective. Every photographer has a vision for their photographs, if people didnt enjoy Rukes vision/photographs then he wouldn't be popular, but its obvious that people do enjoy his photographs.

I didnt notice the photos were slightly tilted until I went back and had another look. Probably because I was looking at the lighting as that is the biggest thing I've been struggling with.

I've been doing nightclub photography for the past month, I'm usually in the middle of the dance floor with everyone else which is different to Rukes style. But if you go and try it you will appreciate the difficulty of the environment. I'm not sure about Rukes but half the time I'm trying to get enough space to take shots while people bump into me or tapping on my shoulder for a  photo.

Also nightclubs vary in there lighting some are very dark, while others have strobes and lasers which makes life slightly easier.

Asking to change the environment, is like asking a photojournalist in a war zone to go out into the middle of the road during a gun fight to take some photos instead of being hidden in a building and snapping away (just a extreme example).

Great profile and images Rukes. I really enjoyed it, espically because I've been getting into Nightclub photography.

Though the events are not as big as the ones you attend and my images are probably not as good yet, I'm still learning.

I have a couple questions though.

How often do you find yourself using a flash? and How did you get the nickname Rukes?

On my wish list:
  • 24-70L F/2.8 IS
  • 50L F/1.2 II

To buy either of these I'd have to sell my existing lenses to be able to afford them.

A touch screen? Way to go consumer -.-

Touch screen is all hype... don't go put your sweaty fingers on the screen where you once in a while will try to view if the setup is ok. Just doesn't make sense.

I have to agree, touch screen on a pro body would be terrible idea. I'm actually waiting for the 5D Mark III or equivalent to be released so that I can buy it. Touch screen + articulating screen would probably make me buy the 7D or save enough the next 1Ds or equivalent.

Also I don't want to be cleaning the screen every 2 minutes. Your nose and fingers will leave marks all over it.

Finally. I've been holding out for a new 50mm 1.2L. The Sigma 50mm 1.4 is nice but I NEED that extra 1/3 stop.

If you NEED it you should just buy the current one. I've owned mine for a year now and its great lens.

I assume if there is a 50mm MK II coming out, canon would improve the sharpness at 1.2-1.8 and increase the AF speed.

EOS Bodies / Re: second curtain flash

On the 430EX second curtain sync is enabled using the same button that enables High Speed sync. Press once for HSS, again for second curtain sync. The symbol has arrows, with one filled it. It is not in the custom functions.
