Lenses / Re: Wide Angle to go with a 70D
« on: June 13, 2014, 08:21:35 AM »
Just got the 10-18 to match my 35 2.0 IS.  Adding a 70-300L one day will leave me with 3 lenses that all take a 67mm filter. 
Haven't put it through it's paces much yet, but here's one purposely shot for distortion:

Lenses / Re: Canon 10-22 vs 10-18
« on: June 06, 2014, 03:53:44 PM »
I've just been enlisted to chronicle (daily) the construction of a large Veterans' Monument who's construction begins on Monday.  I've also been approached just today by a realtor for some of that.
For the life of me I can't decide between the 10-18, either of the two Sigma 10-20's or the Tokina 11-16 II (although possibly slightly leaning towards the Tokina).  There's also the Sigma 8-16, of course.
Can anyone tell me which one to get?  I have a 70D and will more than likely stick with that for awhile and crop sensors for even longer; probably.
Thanks.

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.
