And three more, could be much better, I know, but I have taken a lot of worse photos  8)

Hah! Love that last shot! Looks like my cat when she's begging for a morsel. :)
Amazing! That is the exact look my dog cuddles gives my mother-in-law when she wants dog biscuits :)

Stephan, lovely pictures!

I got a chance to shoot a bday party, baby portrait, corp event. And wondering where do I go from here.
Started a site (work in progress) but just not sure where to invest next for props advertising etc. any suggestions would be helpful

Www.allophotography.com

Could have used props for the baby. Could have used a macro for the baby but want to spend my money wisely. Gear is in my sig.
I liked your pictures but macro for the baby? Very confused! Could you explain?

Serindipidy, I'm a little confused.  The bread you buy is for other birds, I take it, since you said the heron doesn't eat it.  So it's a true friendship, assuming he doesn't get anything to eat from you??

Amazing how animals and humans bond.

I think he baits the fish with the bread too.

get the kenko tubes. They are relative cheap and give a wide range of extension stacking options
+1 on that!

Canon General / Re: I hate photographing my family for posed photos...
« on: September 02, 2013, 10:55:16 PM »
Simple solution! Don't photograph the family that way... Just shoot them in their natural environment doing what they like best... You are more likely to get keepers that way - but then you knew that already :)

The Performing Bear shot is an iconic Polar Bear Pose.

Could have come straight from Fox's Glacier Mints !

It was shot @ 200mm on the 200-400f/4, I was backing down the side of the vessel trying to get the Bear + Berg in the Picture, I had my 70-200f/2.8 set up on the other 1Dx Body but didn't want to change Cameras at this Point, others onboard got the larger Picture which looked good as well, but at times this Lady performed like she was Circus Trained, amazing stuff to see in the Wild. Fortunately my Lad was with me & got the whole thing on Video.
Lovely shots. All of them. As usual :)

Huge apology RPT, Being an Aussie we generally call Brits similar but possibly worse things, terribly sorry, wont happen again.
Hey! I am indian! We have a 250 year old bone to pick with the Brits. I don't care what you call them. You can call them French or Irish for all I care ;)
You would have to apologise to sporgon, Paulwalnut et all...

When the ashes are on, I am on the Aussie side. Has not been fun the last few times though... :)

Paulwalnut ? He's Scottish for heavens sake ! Why do you think Hadrian built his wall ??  ;D
Ha! Ha! Ha! I am sure Paul will have something to say about that  ;D

I purchased the kenko extension tube set last year and have been really happy with them despite:

more ISO noise
ETTR or manual exposure.

Quote
more light required to get proper exposure
Yup! Light 101 - the intensity of light is inversely proportional to the square of the distance... So expect that to happen.

Quote
more sensor dust
Don't know about that...

Quote
losing infinity focus
Yup! So only works for macro work...

Quote
You might also want to look into a macro focusing slider.
+10000! You may want one that moves along two axis. If you ask neuro he'd say get the RRS one...

Here are a few pics i took with the kenko tubes and the 5D II + canon 100mm 2.8 USM macro lens.

1. Japanese Hawk Moth Caterpillar (スズメガ)
2. Japanese Giant Killer Hornet (オオスズメバチ)
Lovely!

Buy the Lens in Singapore and save 15%, I think the Europeans & Aussies get taken to the cleaners on gear prices.
So you are calling the Brits Europeans? ;)

Yea, you tell him rpt ! We Brits will be Europeans the day the English Channel dries up  ;)
Be careful what you wish for! If that happens you will have a land border with France! ;)

Also +1 about the prices in the UK...

Congratulations! The last time I took baby pics was December '87! That time my mom held my younger girl in the well lit corridor. Shot with my AE-1 with the 50mm 1.8 and I am guessing I shot 1/50 and f8 but that was a quarter of a century back...

Anyway, as for the scratches, tie up the lovely little bundle so that the hands can't come out to scratch. Also get the nails clipped. Enjoy the time. And like Mt. Spokane said, pay attention to your boss (wife). ;)
