Lenses / Re: Need quick advice Please and thanks! Choir photoshoot!

I wonder if Hobbs is right, maybe I should avoid what renting what I haven't used and stick with what I have. Maybe neuros dimensions about the wideness of the 16mm and 24mm are right. I would imagine 50 people would fit in with a 24mm. I probably shouldn't be worrying about it right now but the shoot is coming up soon and renting a lens timeframe is dwindling. And thank you picturesbyme for the encouragement!

Portrait / Ruined photo, or rescue opportunity?
« on: October 10, 2012, 12:19:05 AM »
Hello I recently shot a wedding and during the group photos it became rather rushed as I was given a very short amount of time to set up for my shots. During the chaos and confusion I think one of my flashes malfunctioned or simply turned off, here is the resulting photo. My question, is this photo ruined or is there a way to rescue it? The shadows on a few faces is what is in question if you didn't notice right away :( Hopefully this isn't a huge fail on my part! Thank you everyone!

Its a high school choir and the photos are being submitted to the MMEA organization. I like the idea of the football field or something to that effect. I know there is a music room, a theater with balcony, and a cafeteria that has a upper level over looking.

Ha well maybe I shouldn't have started a thread, I'm starting to lose some confidence in doing this. A photographer friend referred me the shoot because she was busy and the director is doing this rather last minute. The photos need to be submitted by the 15th. Can you light a group of 50 with 2 580 exii's? I know theres several places in the high school he thought to take photos and there was an outdoor area we brainstormed.

So it sounds like we're leaning towards the 16-35? I just dont think 24mm is going to be wide enough for creativity.

Yes on my 5d Mark II, thanks for the quick reply. I havent used anything wider than 24mm on full-frame so Im not sure how wide 16mm is.

Hey everyone I have a choir I am photographing this Saturday the 13th and I was hoping to get your opinions on what lens I should rent for this. I was thinking about the Canon 16-35L Canon 14L or maybe the Sigma 12-24. The choir is about 50 kids and the director wants the something different than the typical riser shots, anyone got any ideas on large group shots? Thank you in advance to potential replies!

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Upgrading from 500D to 5D Mark 2 or 3
« on: October 01, 2012, 12:07:02 PM »
I just bought a brand new 5d2 and first off I've never bought new before and so that was exciting! I have a 50d and I can many times match the 5d2 IQ but I bought the 5d2 to save some cash and have the full frame low noise high iso advantage and that to me is the difference maker. Oh and for the saving cash part was because I wanted to buy some full frame lenses and ditch the crop lenses. I really wanted the 5d3 but I figure I know how to use my 50d well why not get a similar body and get some nice lenses to use on either, a 5d3 wasn't going to make a big enough difference to what I can do with my camera and lens. I'd say either way you will be happy but like everyone says technique and lenses are greater than the camera.

Canon General / Re: How do you sell your gear?
« on: September 20, 2012, 02:02:45 PM »
I am trying to sell my 17-55 2.8 IS as well, lots of hits but it's people wanting it for 500 bucks which is annoying. I second the phone number thing I have been using that a lot more now. Still get a lot of people who aren't very serious, I had a guy offer me a 18-55 and cash.

Heck I bet QC has improved since canon has been around for some time now. I know the company I work for it sure has gone up, no company wants to lose customers.

EOS Bodies / Re: 7D!
« on: September 17, 2012, 11:35:29 PM »
Here we go again. APS-H will reappear when one of two things happens:

  • Nikon and Sony release an APS-H body, or
  • Someone captures a verifiable action shot with their 6D of Bigfoot riding a unicorn.

I think the Bigfoot/Unicorn shot has the better odds.

What about ManBearPig?  It's real, I'm super serial!

Excelsior!!!!

Depth of field preview button back on the other side?? Kinda strange they would update the 5d3 with that but then take it off the 6d!

Sorry but I kinda hope this is the camera that comes out because then I will be super happy about my brand new 5d2 kit that's going to show up today!
