Any feedback is welcome.  I'm still new to this whole photography thing.
Very nice pic, I like how you've included 4 different subjects to beautifully integrate in one image, colors are beautiful... does not look like an image made by someone who is new to photography ... you've done a great job! Keep up the good work!

Great Shot, love the colors.

Thanks guys

I have a 430 ex ii, a 600 EX-rt, and a yongnuo, purchased in that order.  I'd go with the yongnuos for biggest bang for your buck.  I have the manual only one though (yongnuo) since I use flashes in manual mode most of the time.  I do like the 600-ex-rt (for the power) if I'm only using one flash and/or if I want to use it in ETTL.

I think there should be another option: I'd get it but I want to stay married...

+1 =)

Thanks to the OP for sharing with the community.  very informative.  I try to do an outline like this for myself after every wedding I shoot.

how close are you to the subject you're trying to focus on?

Lenses / Re: 24-70L II is fantastic

Agree! It's my second favorite zoom lens!

Same here.  I still like the results I get from the 70-200 2.8 IS II more.

I also have issue with the 6D's lack of noise at higher ISOs.

+1 ROFLMFAO!!!!!!!


EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 60d or t5i, your help?

If she doesn't need the control features or the robustness of the 60D, or she values compactness and ease of use, I would suggest the T4i and save considerable coin to invest in a nice lens...



Lenses / Re: Canon 50mm f1.2 worth?
« on: April 21, 2013, 01:16:24 PM »
I know this is a little off topic but I found I was using my 50mm f/1.4 at 2.8 or smaller most of the time so i sold it and got the 24-70 f/2.8 II instead. 

If you need to use the lens wider than 2.8, I always hear that the 50 1.2L outperforms the 50 1.4, but only marginally.

I think that quite a few folks don't know about shoulder straps or don't carry heavier cameras or lenses.  Once they do, I don't think they will ever go back to a neck strap...  :o


exactly my thoughts

Lenses / Re: 16-35 f/2.8II vs 17-40 f/4
« on: April 18, 2013, 07:29:19 PM »
It was me who started this thread 14 months ago. I had been a staunch defender of the 17-40, and most of that hold true if shooting from f/5.6-11. Last year I switched to the 16-35 f/2.8II and while there is a quality/economy role for the 17-40, the 16-35 f/2.8II does push it aside in a number of subtle, almost unexplainable ways. And so it should!

At the subtle level, now my UWA images just look better. Regardless of aperture. I'm at a loss to explain why. But I'm reaching for the 16-35 a lot more often than I did the 17-40. At a less subtle level, at least I can expect pretty good centre sharpness wide open. That couldn't be said for my copy of the 17-40.

At the end of the day, they're both lenses that will satisfy most shooters UWA needs, and deliver commercial quality results.


This is great feedback on both of these lenses.  This is why I'm saving up for the 16-35.


you don't see the real value because you are a beginner. This lens is meant for creative photographers who can think of depth, perspective, composition and intelligent framing.

Those 2 photos you posted are snapshot and can be easily taken using an iphone.

even though this was put rather rudely, I have to agree on some level.  (although I think "learncanon" needs to learn a little tact)

an UWA is a special lens and from the examples you posted, it looks like a 24-70 might've been more up your alley...or at least a standard zoom.  the distortion is something you can learn to play with.  sounds to me like you purchased the lens without really knowing what you wanted from it.

+1 for the 24-70 2.8 II.  I used mine on my cruise to the Bahamas WAAAAAy more than I thought.  BTW, I brought everything but used this most of the time.
