EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5D Mark iii questions (mostly AF)
« on: October 25, 2013, 07:55:25 AM »
You can register up to 3 points depending on the orientation of the camera.
The AF points does not light up when in Servo mode and sadly never will, but you can get used to that (you have to press the shutter to see what point you have selected)
And i have a friend who bought the tamrom that had front focus problems, and there is a problem with the focusing sensor on the MKIII. The service guys said that they can calibrate it to work only for the center point. The others still had issuses.

Software & Accessories / Re: What complement to Aperture
« on: April 05, 2013, 08:13:05 AM »
The best plugins I've used are from nik software, but if you want to have 100% freedom of making adjustments you should use photoshop. The tools there are so much better, but it requires some learning time.

Lenses / Re: 24-70 f2.8L II or.....
« on: March 29, 2013, 06:39:57 AM »
I do not own the 35 L, but i've rented a couple of times, but i do own the 24-70 II and love it. You can buy the 35 afterwards if you feel you need the extra f stops, who knows, maybe the 35 L II will rise  ;D

Lenses / Re: What next?

It depends on how you see and what you want your results to look like. I normally shoot weddings, events and portraits with two bodies with a 24 on one and a 50 or 85 on the other. For the portraits, I also use a 135 f2. However, when it is time for dancing, I pull out the 16-35 to use with a pair of flashes to get cool shots.

Very nice pictures, and thank for the advice. I have one more question for you and for those who shoot primes. Do you shoot at open apertures like f2 or f 1.8 cosidering the DOF. I mean my zooms are great, but some times an extra f stop would be usefull to lower ISO. Thanks and once again, very nice pictures!

Hello! I own a 5d mkIII 24-70 L II 70-200 L 2.8 II and  sigma 50mm  1.4. and also a 600 RX Speedlite
I shoot portaits and events mostly. I was wondering would be the next lens choice for me.

Thanks in advance!

Cheers!

1. What is the problem with your current lenses?
2. What is your expectation for up coming purchase lens?

If you not sure, then don't buy anymore lenses. PERIOD.

No problem with the current lenses, i was just thinking that maybe getting a new focal length will add some new "compositional opportunities" :)

Wait for 14-24mm.  Then decide.

Yeah, that sounds the most tempting... but how long must we wait?  ::)

Nice work for a first wedding.  It looks like you drew the short straw with the venue as well.  While the wood work and lighting sets a nice tone and background, the wooden ceilings make it near impossible to get a decent bounce for a flash. 

I really like the dancing picture.  You may try to warm and brighten the couple up with a brush in photoshop/lightroom.  That is a hard lighting situation and some flash gels (very cheap) would have helped a lot to match the color temp of the incandescent lights.   Also, if you weren't shooting at max aperture, it could help to separate the couple from the background and add a little light as well.  It looks like you either pulled up the exposure on the picture or added a bunch of contrast/clarity.  You might want to back off a bit from the contrast to see if you can get some of the DR back.

Thank you so much! It's very usefull advice, just one question, if I may: you said i should use flash gels. I not shure, do i need to use warm gel or something cooler?
Thanks again very much!
