5DIII and 1DSIII does Kashmir and Rajasthan
« on: May 31, 2013, 04:25:35 PM »
As a long time lurker on these forums, I though it would be time that I share some images finally. Not a pro nor an experienced shooter, but started exploring photography as a fun recreational activity just a few years ago, and recently went on my first 'serious' photo trip to India, which I wanted to shoot ever since I saw a exhibition by Steve McCurry, who has produced so many great images from this region.

Here is a selection of what i consider the best shots, and more can be seen on my Smugmug homepage.

If you care to critique or comment I would appreciate it greatly :)

Best,
Kasper

Thanks. I definitely plan to keep this up  ;)

I have used the 24-70 II and the 85 II for all the shots. I found them to be a superb duo for this kind of shooting, with the first acting as the machine gun and the latter serving as my sniper riffle, so to speak :-)

Great images of these people. Particularly like 8 and 11. Also like your control over depth of field: shallow, but not too shallow.

Keep posting.

I'm liking those images...had you not taken them could you discern which body took which pictures.

Nice photos. Checked your smugmug gallery "India" as well. You went to two of the (among around 10-12) most beautiful places of India. I hope you did not limit yourself only to the religious places....
Need to learn a lot more.

These are really good shots! Well done! Two bodies and two lenses. What is the lens & body combination you used, e.g. did you have the 85L2 attached to the 1ds3, and the 24-70L2 attached to the 5D3 all the time to minimize lens changing?

Great pictures Kasper.

+1. Very colorful, nice composition and they all tell a story.
What's up with the screaming lady in photo #9? Is she angry that you are taking her photo?

Thank you all for the response. Feels nice to have your images so well received, especially since I feel that am still a novice so the boost of confidence you provide is highly appreciated ;)

Regarding the choice of cameras and lenses. I wanted to bodies on this trip, both as a safety measure and so that I didn't have to change lenses, which is something I always try to avoid out in the streets. I find the 1DSIII and 5DIII to output very similar RAW's up to and around 800 ISO, where after the 5D leaves the old dog in the dust. But given that they otherwise can take the same treatment in LR and deliver similar results, I have not found it necessary to upgrade the 1DS yet. I started with the 85 mounted on the 5D because it delivers more keepers wide open on that lense, but later changed do to the fact that I was shooting a lot of wide angle in confined spaces at higher ISO's, thus the 24-70 had to switch partner.

What's up with the lady in #9?

Actually, I have no idea what got her panties in a twist, I wasn't I though ;D
I just jumped in front of her while she was yelling at someone behind me and got away with this interesting shot
