crapking...i also enjoy playing and shooting golf.  I like both your shots, especially the first one.   Do you think the second one would be better if you shot it with a smaller aperture so we could see the ball and the hole the golfer is playing.  just my IMO.

I did stop down to 1.6 trying to strike a background blur and depth of field balance, but not quite enough obviously.  Was a playing partner that day, and not shooting the event commercially  (plus it was a busy day on the course), so did not really have the time to experiment as much as I'd like. I do have an opportunity the first week of Oct to shoot a charity/celebrity outing so will be able to perfect the photographic shot then - still trying to perfect the GOLF shot after 30+ yrs w/o luck ;)

lol..yes, i've somewhat given up trying to "perfect the golf shot" because i realized that somewhere in that 6 inches between my ears, a part of my brain doesn't like me to play good golf

CHP Golf-2 by PVC 2012, on Flickr

I went back and found another shot, this time at f4 with the 70-200 2.8 II.
Is this more pleasing?  I originally thought this looked a little "busy", whereas at f 1.6, I thought it was more "dreamy".
At my event in Oct, I will be able to sell my images (donating the proceeds back to the charity though), so which "LOOK" do you think would generate more interest?? I will only get each foursome (player) hitting off of one tee so I need to get it right the first and only time.  Which is preferable ??


i think you're on the right track now...slightly smaller aperture, maybe f4 like you said so you get some bokeh and some feel for the hole the golfer is playing.   maybe a little better composition and you have it.

here's a couple i recently took at a tournament.

in the first, i could've shot at a wider aperture to get better bokeh...this is a good situation for that dreamy look..I like this angle because you get to see the golfer's face better.

in the second - this is what i was originally referencing.  you can see the golfer, the ball, and the layout of the hole/challenge that the golfer is facing on the shot.

also...i'd like to see some of those shots from your Oct event...please consider posting a couple here when you're done.

edit...i just realized i posted some 5d3 shots in a 1dx post...sorry.

Was impressed with he low light capability again...12800 ISO. Was a dark place with just some light from opening in the ancient stone temple (Belur, Karnataka, India)

How did you do 8 shot HDR on something that I assume was moving? It looks amazing.

my first attempt at bird photography



Silhouettes are often overlooked in wildlife photography, but it is where the environment is really important, so long lenses aren't necessarily as vital. It might be worth playing around with crops to see if there is a composition that works better i.e. to take the bird off centre, even if only slightly.
