6D Sample Images / Re: Anything shot with a 6D
« on: October 31, 2013, 11:58:56 AM »
Here's another nightscape.  The 6D is a fabulous camera for this kind of shot because higher ISO production is so clean.  This is all shot with ambient light on the scene.


Lovely. Well done Dustin.

Thanks, mate!

The UMC appears to be the difference between the two.  Whatever they did worked.  The resolution is just stunning from this lens!
Dustin, your images are priceless as always!  You've just about sold me on this lens.  I'm not overly thrilled with my 17-40mmL like so many are, I miss my Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 with IS from my 7D days.  Had the Tokina 16-28mm but it is a beast and something was really wrong with my copy.  So now I'm without UWA, unless you consider the 17-40mm uwa, as most do, it's just not enough for me...

Is the 14mm Rok really the exact same lens as the Samyang and the others?  Is there any difference you know between any of them?  Looking forward to placing my order soon!  Thanks for the great review!  :D

First of all, thank you!  Secondly, to my knowledge the same optical lens is rebranded and sold under all of the various other brands.  Samyang is the most well known.  If you have a chance to choose the brand, I would go with either Samyang or Rokinon, simply because they are better known and the other brands thus appear more "cheap" and might diminish resale value (although this will probably be a lens you hang on to).

I just sold my 17-40L yesterday and have no regrets.

Here's another nightscape - this is all using ambient light, BTW:

EOS-M / Re: Mount EF, EF-S or L lens on EOS-M --- Your thought???
« on: October 30, 2013, 05:43:07 PM »
I did a walk about the other day with the M + 85mm f/1.8 hung around my neck as a second body.  I was actually pleasantly surprised with the combo.  Still very light and balance isn't terrible, and in many ways it was like having the 135L along (in terms of FOV).  It was also one of the first times I've really gotten the narrow depth of field that I like with the M.  I shot it essentially wide open the whole time and was really pleased with the images I got, in including this one:

Here's a second that I liked (I was getting rained/sleeted on while taking this shot) that shows off the narrow dOF and nice sharpness.

Many thanks for sharing, this is much appreciated!
Thanks for sharing Dustin !

You're welcome, guys.  These articles are not incredibly thorough, but hopefully they do give some insight into workflow.

Here is the third and final article from the series.  This one focuses on making a very different finished product through processing workflow.

Canon EF Prime Lenses / Re: Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM

I recently went out with the 85 mounted on the EOS M through the adapter, so it gives a field of view very similar to the 135L on my FF bodies.  Still nice and light, and although I shot almost exclusively wide open, I was quite impressed with the image quality I got. Here's one from that outing:

I went on a walkabout the other day with the M and an EF 85mm f/1.8 as a second body with me.  I was actually very pleasantly surprised with the combination.  Really nice image quality, and a field of view very similar to the 135L on my FF bodies.  I shot it wide open basically the whole time, and came home with several images I was really happy with, including this one:

Here is the second part of the series.  This is about doing the simple things in a workflow that help to give an image an extra bit of punch.

P.S.  There are total of three parts to this article series.  The other two will go live over the next week or so and I will share links to this thread.

I have been asked by several members to share processing workflow information.  The following is a series of articles that I wrote for Alien Skin Software, specifically about a few ways that I incorporate Alien Skin Exposure 5 into my workflow.

The three pieces of software discussed in these articles are:  Lightroom, Photoshop, and Exposure 5.
