Lighting / Re: Round light flash diffuser experience?
« on: January 16, 2015, 09:52:21 AM »
I have the RoundFlash, I like to use it, but I let the pictures speak for itself. :)

Just my opinion, I find the catch lights too distracting.

Yeah, the catchlights are very prominent in the eyes because they are so thick. "Real" ringlights are thinner and subtler. The roundFlash is great for products, too. I like to photograph things I want to sell on ebay with the ringlight. Great results. :)

Wedding Photography / Re: Bride + Softbox + OCC + Hotel Lobby
« on: January 16, 2015, 04:08:14 AM »
I really like the look of the 60-70cm softboxes. I have a 60cm SMDV softbox myself. It's the sweet spot of soft light and a contrasty look. Nice picture!

Edit:
Maybe kind of a dumb question. Am I the only one who doesn't know what OCC means?

Nice one! Imagine the reflexes that thing produces in the eyes of a Model! That would look awesome! Of course the model will also be blind after the shoot but, man, that would make some crazy portraits!

Feedback is apreciated. :)

Luke Skywalker....I love them all!  Well done!

The only one I would've done something different with is the girl in the tree, I love the shot, just not the leaf over her right eye.  The setting and subject are so beautiful that I don't thin you needed anything more in that shot.

Darth

Thank you so much, Darth! Yeah, that ninja-leaf sneaked in my shot there. But we decided to keep ist since we both love the photo. I had two models that day and letting them climb the tree was the best idea ever :D. Here is another one of a girl within the same tree. :)

I'm sorry if this was already posted, I didn't read the 14 pages that came before me. But I think the box-logo has some similarities with the ImageRunner logo http://www.imagerunneradvance.com/images/imagerunner_advance_logo.png

Maybe they are announcing new printers.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Why haven't you left canon?
« on: September 27, 2014, 12:48:55 PM »
I first chose Canon because of the Nikon nomenclature. I (as a total DSLR-beginner at that time) just couldn't find out what DSLR to choose. My sister has a Nikon so I wanted a Nikon first. But after testing I chose the 450D over the Nikon whatever-the-hell for the ergonimocs of the whole camera. :)

Canon General / Re: Gets the Job Done....Every Time

Great post! And it sums up my hobbyist experience as well. I always felt like the Canon system had everything I would ever want for the situation I am facing. I like doing portraits and I found the perfect lenses for me to do that with, both at a very god price point. I am using a 100 2.0 and a 50 1.4 on a 5D2 and this kit never disappointed (except the 50 wide open, as everybody knows...).

The thing is, you have to appreciate your gear to appreciate the photos you take with it. At least that is what I think. :)

Lighting / Re: Anything Strobist

#1 is from a club night. I shoot their parties every month or so. One 430EX with orange gel, one YN565EX with green gel.

#2 is Roundflash with a gorgeous girl

#3 is a photo montage inspired by FightClub ("Everything is just a copy, of a copy, of a copy..."). Again the 430EX and the 565EX, using the Roundflash as a softbox with orange gel.

#4 is a self portrait with my new SMDV Diffusor-60 I bought yesterday on a Manfrotto-boom. Took it literally like 10 minutes ago, just for funzies. :D

Lenses / Re: The 10 Oldest Canon Lenses in Production
« on: January 11, 2014, 10:36:41 AM »
I own the 100mm f/2 and I love it for portraits. You have a nice distance to the model for the close headshots and the bokeh is as creamy as it gets. For 300€ used you get a hell of a lot of bang for your buck. Currently it's one of two lenses I own together with the 50mm f/1.4 and i really like them both for portraits.

I really like the second pic... Just goes to show you don't need a squillion focus points and a 5D3 to take good pics!!

All I need is 1. 8) 5D2 users can relate. :D

There really are very few occasions where you have to use 2nd curtain sync. I could only think of night portraits with flash and long exposure. With 1st curtain sync there would be a shadow around the model because he or she can't stand perfectly still for that long.
