I think I might swap out my 100 2.0 for this and a new 100-400.

If they would only make a 70D without that wretched articulating screen?

Just ordered the 10-18.  It's 67mm filter size is the same as my 35 2.0 IS and the future 70-300L.  NICE.

Is it too early to compare the 10-18 to the 10-22?  I think I might like to have that (to complement my 35 2.0 IS).

PowerShot / G16 or ?
« on: May 07, 2014, 03:45:16 PM »
     I handled a few of the leaders today for a few seconds each and found the G16 to be the most readily intuitive.  That might point to seeing what the G17 entails, but do some of you like the G16 over any of the others (like the RX100, X20, etc.)?
     I'm on the search for the "ultimate" compact for travel/street.
     Thanks.

Check out the series of flash photography books by Neil Van Niekerk.  I have found them most informatative.

Just found this - http://neilvn.com/tangents/video-using-the-black-foamie-thing/

     Do you think a DEMB Classic Flip-It ( http://www.dembflashproducts.com/flipit/ ) and basic diffuser  ( http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/407175-REG/Sto_Fen_OM_EW_OM_EW_Omni_Bounce_for_Canon.html ) can get most of it done?
     Thanks.

That is very cool.  I have 3 more "flash" tutorial/workshops in the cue, but I think I'm more in line with what you do.

Photography Technique / On-Camera Flash Technique/Gear?
« on: April 14, 2014, 10:42:28 AM »
     Just did my fourth professional shoot (a Bat-Mitzvah) and the results were the best I've yet done.  Haven't yet ventured into off-camera flash, but used a variety of "bounce" tools (simple diffuser, small soft-box and on-flash bouncer).  My camera's a 70D and flash is the 430EX II.
     Are there any other recommended tools/techniques like brackets, etc.?  Off-camera seems like it might be tough while remaining mobile.  Maybe I'm wrong, but I think I might like to stick with on-camera.
     Thanks for any discussion.

I've just done one so far, but put together a GREAT inexpensive starter set-up that I can share if you like.  There's also another online thing that's very helpful that I'll find in a minute.

headed to Alaska from Seattle:

This is quite nice.  If you had only cloned out the cranes, and then done a wall-sized print, you could have sold it for like a billion dollars...at least if you had spent 40 years building your brand beforehand, etc. etc....:P  (I'm referring to another thread about the "$4 million photograph"...just joking around, no offense...it's just kind of amusing...an ethereal mountain peak off in the distance, nestled over the hustle and bustle!!)

Ahh very cool, I just now saw the airplane in the upper right.  Doesn't appear to be a float plane, but the underside of the wings seems to have stripes. 

Very fun shot you have there...
Thanks a lot.  Much appreciated.  If you like, my other "winning" shots from that trip are at www.flickr.com/photos/corysteiner/ 
I'm really like an accomplished novice and I was almost in tears while taking some of the shots.  It was as if a higher being was pressing my shutter button.  I've since had 3 paid shoots with my fourth scheduled (although one ended up not paying).
