best girlfriends. eos 1dx, ef 85mm/1.2 II. iso 100, f2.5, 1/250s

pretty gals!  love it!

I like #1 and #2....#2 is pretty good as is, but #1 needs some post editing... i cropped a bit as a couple others suggested, and I just played with it a little to give it something extra.

I really don't like the amber stuff...those images don't look good.

pretty girlfriend...i hope her inner beauty matches her outer beauty!

good luck. 

Original....and then my edit.

Lenses / Re: 70-200 f/2.8 IS II - Difference between 2012 and 2014?
« on: June 10, 2014, 07:45:18 PM »
And, just like that, I've taken it in for exchange.  I really wanted to like the lens and not be "that guy" that is returning lenses because they're not sharp or whatever.  But I took some photos of the moon last night (good tripod, 1/4s exposure, f/4, mirror lockup, 2s timer, IS off etc) and the stars showed some serious problems with coma or astigmatism with weird crescent shaped flares instead of points across the whole field of view.  So, serenity shattered, it was returned this morning and I'm awaiting a replacement when stock arrives.

Sorry to waste everyone's time - I appreciate the advice.

you made the right choice to return it....for $2k, you should have a brand new 2014 manufactured lens, not one that is two years old and probably has been handled by dozens of people in the shop over the last two years.

My friend, if possible, you might consider a light colored hat. It will help deflect some of the heat...

Have a great time.  I look forward to seeing your photos.  Because of you, I now own an EOS M.

Good advice on the hat....light or white colored clothes too!

Is it bad if there are multiple photos of the same athlete? Majority of my best frisbee photos(at different events) are of our captain and of our senior handler.

I just asked someone who had interviewed for the position previously and apparently having both in person portfolio and online portfolio is a good thing. Should I include the same photos that I have prints of or different?

What sort of order? by sport? What do you mean be careful mixing portrait and landscape oriented images?

Thank you so much for your help!!

and this is what I had for my portfolio so far:

I'll give you some thoughts I have...(I shoot sports regularly)

1. I would print and bring about a dozen of your best...and then have an iPad or laptop to display your online portfolio....focus on quality, but there has to be some variety of angles /subjects / scenes /action/emotions

2. I looked through your photos, first thing I noticed is you need to straighten your images.  Second thing I noticed is you need to crop some of your images.  Third, I want to see more faces...I can't see a face in 6 of your first 7 photos.

3. Go take some photos of a couple other sports to give your portfolio some more variety and give the impression that you have more experience.   Try a night game or indoor sport because those are regular sport photography assignments.

You have some great shots in your portfolio!  I like this one the best...I cropped and straightened it.  ( I did a screen grab so that's why the image looks white in the upper right corner)

That guy has some crazy thick thighs.  I have to reevaluate who I believe plays quiddich.

Yes...this guy is in shape! 

Also....I'm sure there are some funny photo captions for a shot like this but I'm not clever enough to think of one right now.  8)
