Pretty Bird (NOT!)Their bodies are beautiful though! Seems to serve no purpose, not to have feathers on their heads! I would love to see one sometime that was just a freak of nature with a full head of feathers, just for giggles! Nice image! Good head study!
maybe a little off topic but its got a bird in it!That's cool!
7D 500 f4 IS USM 1.4x II
I've always wanted to try the 1.4 III on my 100-400, but really wanted to see the results with it on my 7d as much as my 5d3... I think it could be quite awesome for some birding and wildlife...Would f/8 autofocus on the 5D be a pipe-dream? otherwise, i'm excited about what it could possibly bring... video i don't care that much about, since i barely use it now... red AF points would be nice but i have gotten use to it now! f/8 autofocus would be awesome though... sigh... doubt it will happen though. Either way, bring it on!+100
I bought a 1.4x in anticipation...
I had thought of getting a 1.4x in anticipation as well for use with my 100-400L but didn't pull the trigger. I was not putting too much faith in Canon delivering the firmware update as scheduled.
Agreed! In my workflow I commonly will hit blemishes, possibly lighten up the bags or wrinkles and that's it. I do additional editing for my clients and discuss it up front. If they are wanting roads removed or wires, chairs, people or anything else, fixing teeth and the such, they know right up front that they will incur a charge of $100 per hour for the extra editing requirements.What do you do when....
A photo lab renders a photo that doesn't match your edit?
You need to provide them with a file that matches their printer profile. They should make a copy of the profile available. Start Here: http://www.drycreekphoto.com/Learn/profiles.htm
A client thinks you are a photoshop guru who can make the photo look totally different from what was present. For example, I've had brides want me to change a horses ears from being pricked backward to forward, remove salt shakers from tables, etc. What is appropriate and reasonable in this circumstance? I am a photographer not a photoshop guru.
Those things are commonly done in photoshop. You might hire someone to do it, or learn. However, unless you do that type of thing frequently, its not likely worth the effort of learning it. Its common to move eyes apart or closer, to make a face look better, or make a nose smaller.
We've seen 7D bodies as low as $999 NEW in recent times. Its not hard to find one for not much more than that right now.Nothing other can touch it that is, unless you go to the 1DIV, 1Dx...
Fantastic deal in a camera for that sort of price.
Yes, a little noisy at higher ISOs. But, on the other hand... its a bit of a sports car in its focusing and frame rate. You have to be the judge. Right now, for the money, nothing Canon has can touch it for wildlife or sports.
For real world prints, or realistic screen/eframe display, the noise limitations are really not too limiting. For pixel peeping... thats another story.
Its starting to show up. A couple or three weeks until its released. This gives them a little time to see if any bugs are found. You can test for 10 years with a hundred beta testers, but a million users can find things in a week or two.
Strictly natural light for this photo. I took the picture about one hour after sunrise, the sun was still fairly low in the sky and was shining from my left to my right. There was a very light haze and the sunlight was somewhat diffused as a result. The light really highlighted the bird's eyes and brightened his feathers for me.I'd have to agree, the ambient shot the IQ on this one over the top! Great image!
