    for the guy in the blue shirt iso 3200 85mm f2.8 ss1/320 shot in aperture priority with a -1 exp comp to get that speed. then adjusted in Lr and Ps with Topaz labs denoise5 for noise reduction. I ...
  • Replied in Rodeo
    Thanks for looking. I used my sony a57 with sigma 50-150. I guess after using Ps the exif data was deleted. It was a lot of fun. Sorry for the confusion. I uploaded them to FB then posted them here ...
  • Created discussions Rodeo
    The family went to the rodeo this last weekend. I had a goal to capture a few nice shots of the cowboys doing there thing and some of the my kids enjoying the day. I I'd love to hear your thoughts ...
  • Replied in Snowbirds
    Here's a few more of the Snowbirds. I'm not familiar with all the flight terms but I'll try and explain the shots in the captions. low altitude close passes over the runway. vertical climb into a ...
  • Thanks and sorry. I knew something was unsettling about the pics but just couldn't put my finger on it. I admit I didn't do my normal research about shooting these events like I normally do, hence ...
  • Created discussions Columbia Missouri airshow
    We visited the airshow this year here in MO. I've never tried shooting one of these in the past because I didn't think I had the right stuff. This is the fisrt show we've been to since I purchased ...
  • I like it. I kinda like the de-saturated version too though.
  • Replied in Thanks
    Thanks fir the nice comments. I believe I took this with my Minolta 70-210 which is having some focus issues, but I still like it even though it is a little soft. Every time I take some portraits ...
  • The in-laws came to visit. My father in law's health is fading a bit and so is his memory. I had a very brief moment when taking portraits of the grandkids all together (800 miles seperate us now) ...
  • Created discussions My 5 year old, "Sassy"
    She is my little model. Anytime I want to try something out or want to do some portraits she's always game. Any comments welcome.
  • Fantastic! I like the male lion head on like that, with the wind and his gaze right into the lens makes it for me,
  • Thanks, After more viewing I think my 1st attempt is "overdone" a bit. Here is a second try. The original background shoot had tons of lens flare so thats why I put so much back in. I wish I knew ...
  • Created discussions A composite attempt
    I wanted to try some composite work for my son's baseball team. Yes I'm following Joel Grimes look to get a handle on what I like. I did take both pics. The one at the field was shot the other ...
  • I noticed this also but the first time I went to the site there was a trial offer "one month free" icon. I clicked it and nothing. Yesterday is wasn't there.....guess no free trials.
  • Created discussions Xmas Magic bag
    Playing with the kiddos tonight. The little ones were being a bit difficult and I would have preferred different outfits (they would not change peacefully) but hay, it still works for me. Might ...
  • I love my beer can for portraits and you just described my entire set up! Minus the 75-300 the "Big Beer Can". I love them all for different reasons.especially the price point. Found all mine on ...
  • I just purchased two used (from the 1980's) in good condition and both perform as they should. I won't hesitate to buy more this way, since I use them on manual mode on radio triggers anyway. It's ...
  • Thanks for the feedback. My radio triggers came in today, yahoo!! I played around a bit with a separation light and really like what that adds. You are right about the small details but I wanna ...
  • I plan to give this framed to my father for xmas. Would be fun to add him but he's 800 miles away. I see now the boys shirt and mine need to match in style not just color. Solid idea? I'm sure ...
  • Thanks. I never really noticed how bright the guitar was. We both had fun doing these and student wants some night time firetruck photos and some snowy wilderness ones. Should be fun.
