Tex, share your camera setting/set-up for the Venus shots, or is it just photoshopped in? ::)

#14 Welder's Glass.  In my eye protection...

1/2000, f16, A-priority -3 Exposure compensation.   ND Filter?  That's for artsy waterfalls and guys who don't own welder's goggles. 

1 D Mark IV, 400mm f2.8IS, 2X Extender III, Tripod + Ball Head + Wimberly side kick.  And 25th floor apartment balcony for slighter higher vantage point.

+1 for the pic and the method
+1 for the comment 'artsy waterfalls'  ;D

I had a chance to shoot pro surfing.  Was pretty fun.  i had the biggest lens on the beach, including the press, untill a guy showed up with a 600m f4.  But I had a 1.4X and 2X extender, so i like to think i still won.

Thanks!  I guess you can't gauge how many people shoot with this based on posts here.  People with the new VII are probably just more excited and post more often. And of course it is a super-tele, and thus relatively rare.

C28F4560 by RexPhoto91,


I think I've finally found you in this photo. Are you lying down, wearing a grey t-shirt just in front of the orange umbrella?
Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

Feel free to have a wander round my flickr

I don't think I appear in the photo.  The glasses are angled too far away from me.  The big guy in the orange mucle T is a friend of mine, and i think was 5- feet away, and between me and the beach.  I have the big 400 on a tripod with gimble head, so i think i'd stand out.

Here are 2 more similar photos.  These pics are me at pro surf contests, looking for targets on the beach with the 400.  I appear in the first one on the right in a yellow T-shirt.
