Sports / Re: Best (free) website to post sports photos to?

deviantArt gives unlimited storage for free and you can organize your photos into albums. You can also choose your username before the deviantart.com. But I think the best way is to have a Facebook page rather than posting it on your account. It's easier to be seen/shared and then you don't have to worry about random friend requests.

EOS Bodies - For Video / upgrading from XSi.. what to choose?
« on: July 25, 2012, 01:50:08 PM »
Hi! It's been a while since I've been on canon rumors and didn't keep up with all the new models and stuff. So I need help! =)

I've had my XSi for 3yrs now(first and only DSLR) and while I love everything about it.. I'm having the video itch. A while ago, I planned to upgrade to the 7D once it gets off market so its cheap but then I watched a video of the new mirrorless camera and like how easy it is to focus during video mode and how i just need an adapter to fit all my lenses. It's smaller and cheaper.

I mainly do portraits, wildlife and sports if that helps. I'll still use the XSi for photos if I do get the eos m since i want a viewfinder but then wouldn't the money be better spent for something like the 7d?

ahh can't decide! help!

Lenses / Re: 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II chromatic aberration

avatar13: I've had the lens since January. Yesterday I did some graduation pictures and again the color fringing is thick. I forgot to remove the filter! Next time I'll try it out without the filter.

So this amount of color fringing is perfectly normal?

This isn't the first time I've seen color fringing like this on my shots. is this a real problem? Meanwhile I'll try out the software

I used B+W MRC haze filter... do you guys think that might be the problem? :/

and I always thought chromatic aberration and color fringing were the same thing? How can you tell color fringing from chromatic aberration?

Would you consider my print screen to have minimal chromatic aberration?

Lenses / 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II chromatic aberration
« on: May 26, 2012, 01:15:50 PM »
Since getting the 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II last winter, this lens has been the most used lens. It's my first L and I love everything about it... except the chromatic aberration. One of the specs on the lens was that it was improved to minimize chromatic aberration. I guess 'minimize' is the key word because to me I feel like there is a good deal of chromatic fringing -equal to the amount I get from photos using the 55-250mm based off my experience.

But maybe I expected too much and maybe if I used the 55-250mm the color fringing would be even worse. At first I ignored it but lately when I edit photos, those purple fringes are really annoying. But I could be overreacting.

I'm not sure exactly how to do a 100% crop so I'm print screening what I see at 100%. This is unedited:

Thanks for your response!! =D What f/stop do you recommend me using for group shots to make the background beautifully out of focus yet with all the people sharp? It will prolly be 2 rows of 5 people.

How much do y'all charge per print? for like, 4x6, wallets, 5x7, 8x10...etc

Thank you so much for all the advice thus far!! =D  I really appreciate y'all taking the time to respond!

And since sunset times are now at like 7 and prom starts at 7, i I'm worried about harsh lighting. I've dealt with harsh lighting by picking places with trees/shade as I don't have a reflector. Any tips with harsh lighting?

Thank you so much!! I can't wait to start college next and to be able to set my prices high from the beginning so there will be no grumbling. heh heh. I'll definitely consider getting a wide prime and higher pricing will help me get one. I have some friends who aren't willing to pay more than $5 for a photo shoot and business speaking, I think I'll drop them because I do have a decent amount of demand. but then again, they are my friends(although my closest friends are willing to pay $15).. but they shouldn't be taking advantage of me if my work is truly worth more than $5. tough... something I'll mull over about.
