  • Created discussions Regatta!
    A few photos from land and sea.  A mixture of the E-5 & 150/2 and E-3 & 35-100.

    It was my friend/contractor's plane - I just was along for the ride. Thankfully I didn't get sick! We are both looking for a calmer day to take me out - the lead shot I made into a postcard and the ...
  • A view from inside the cockpit. Pushing the plane back - that's how small it is! A view down Main St.
  • Added 3 photos to their gallery

  • Replied in Thanks CC
    Greeting CC - very very long time since I've seen you over here in 1022. This was my first time in any small aircraft - it look several minutes for me to even be comfortable moving let alone ...

    John - At 1/500 and 22 mm IS would not be helpful, so I had it turned off.  The shot was taken through the side window (no wind, but there is a layer of dirty non-optical glass there). I took about ...
  • Created discussions E-5 11-22 take to the sky
    I had a chance to shoot from a small aircraft (Cesna 150) this past weekend and captured this beauty of our village. I brought the E-5 and 11-22 and the 50-200.  Things I found out: (1) There's no room ...

  • My 150/2 was dropped on the asphalt at last year's field hockey season.  The focus motor was very erratic and would not move focus more than a few feet.  I shot the final two games of the season ...
  • Here one from my archive from shooting a play - very very very dark - ISO 2000. Did I mention that many of the scenes were dark?
  • Replied in BLL-1
    I believe the BLL-1 (for the E-1 grip) has that problem now (not available, and no third party equivalent).
  • Created discussions Field Hockey
    I was called in by our sports editor to cover a field hockey playoff game.  I rarely cover field hockey, so I wasn't sure what the action was supposed to look like. I found out that there is a lot ...
  • We are entering the worst time of year for HS football north of the 45th Parallel. It's almost always dark, and stadium lighting looks good only to the eyes, not to the sensor. Gone are the days of ...
  • Since I see you are shooting for a newspaper - you might want to forget the 50/2 (unless there is a lead headshot you need to get).  Most of my "activity" photos for our paper are shot at 14-25 mm ...
  • Put the FL-36 on the camera with a better bounce card, but put the card on backwards (in front of the flash). Fire at the ceiling, but the card will act like a mini-diffuser. Set your flash for ...
  • Never mind the EM-5 owners. (Prospective) E-5 owners would have liked a BLM-5 to work in the grip.  I loved having one set of batteries for the E-3 & E-5 combo (compared to the E-1 & E-3 combo) - ...
  • Replied in Video clip
    Interested in how fast the sack photo occurred? Here's a video clip from the local news cast. I was shooting from the endzone and tracking the quarterback the whole time (as it looked like he was ...
  • The E-3 has a pretty vicious JPG curve when it comes to contrast - anything over C-1 blocks up the shadows quite a bit.  I've found the JPGs are much more malleable in LR at C-1 (or even C-2).
  • As you can see in the first photo - it was completely overcast and raining and slightly foggy at the time, with super flat light. To expose properly for the faces, you need to use at least +0.5 ...
