Dear Friend, Mr. TrabimanUK.
THANKSSSSS.
If you use FF Canon Camera, = EF 100 Macro Lens are great for PORTRAIT Photography, With F=2.8 = Great Back ground beautiful Blur too, And Super sharp at F = 8.0----Please try for Portrait Photos.
BUT if you use the small sensor Camera, May be 100 mm( = 100 X 1.6 = 1600 mm) , You need to move far away from the beautiful model----Ha, Ha, Ha.
Have a great Work Week.
Surapon
Nice to talk to you

Mr Surapon,
I really like your images of the young lady you posted on the 18th., especially img_007; all images are beautiful.  I am going to learn your lighting and high shutter speed to remove the background.
You are very kind to share the tricks up your sleeve!

Well. I've always found that ditching the equipment and playing with the light always gets me the best results. Light, maybe reflector, lens and camera.

Is that a Skipper in CRW_6722?

50D, 1D X, and just enough glass to get the job done.

Here's an image of a flower taken early morning.  Oh, yes, and a butterfly too.  a butterfly in flight  --  BFIF.  That's my present obsession interest.

Beautiful!  Interesting combo using the 135 plus 1.4 extender....do you use that combo often?

1D X, 135mm + 1.4x extender, f/5.6, ISO 2000, 1/8000 sec. I used the 135mm + 1.4x II extender until I purchased a 200mm.

Beautiful!  Interesting combo using the 135 plus 1.4 extender....do you use that combo often?

I used the 135mm + extender until I bought a 200mm. Not too much obvious difference in tele effect but I'm assuming that a 200mm has better Image Quality than a 135 with extender.  BFIF images need all the IQ they can get!

p.s. As a newbie poster I can use some hints on how to reply to questions.  I may have missed the obvious, or not seen how in the FAQ. Let's see how this attempt looks.

Actually after taking a look, it seems you've blown the highlights by having your flash too close? and tried to recover with a pink overlay? Maybe not highlights cause its in a weird place? You definitely did something dirty though.


Having a bad day Cinto?

I looked at your photos and thought "wow, these are great", and then you ruined it all for me by following up with consecutive disrespectful criticisms about Surapon's photos and technique.

Not cool.

Criticism is ok when someone publishes their photos to show that they do know what their doing.  So where are his images?  I'd like to see it done better.
