  • Getting a little off topic. My question is what's the preferred/best/normal way to allow you to take lower aperture photos under bright conditions in order to achieve a very shallow DOF with a ...
  • I might have been a bit misleading about saying I shoot in direct sunlight. I never have my subjects look straight into the sun. The sun is always either to the side or behind them and I use my ...
  • I've started doing some photography on the side and primarily use a Canon 6D with a 24-70 f/2.8 LII lens as my go to lens. Often because of scheduling conflicts, I do some sessions at less than ...
  • What service did you use to build the site or did you do it all by hand? Looks good by the way. I'm really looking to improve mine soon ( http://www.courtneyhumphries.com ).
  • Created discussions Golf Course Photography
    I'm going to Vegas next month to play some of the nicer golf courses out there. I've started doing a little photography on the side ( My Site , Photobucket ), but I've never done much with ...
  • I ended up going with the Incase DSLR Pro Sling (they had it on zappos so +1 for 1 day shipping). I just wanted to see if I liked it and I really do. I like that it has room for my Macbook Pro. ...
  • As far as Canon lenses go for crops, there's two ways to go. You can get really good EF-S lenses specially made for Canon's crops. I recommend either 17-55 f/2.8 or the current kit lens which is ...
  • Ha, maybe a weekend vacation. I'm from Mississippi so any chance to get away is always a plus :) I think that you'd like the 24-70 f/2.8 over the 24-105 f/4. I'm just basing that on my preferences. ...
  • I say get what you really want. There's nothing worse than having a hobby and not buying what you want. You usually end up regretting the initial decision and end up either not liking what you ...
  • I'm looking for a good sling bag (walk around bag) that will hold my 6D with a 70-200 attached, as we'll as hold my 24-70, maybe another lens, and a flash. I also want the bag to easily hold the ...
  • I ended up going with the Lowepro Slingshot 302 AW. I really liked my 202, but this one is a bit deeper to accommodate longer teles. I'm really partial to the sling style because I take my camera ...
  • Created discussions New bag for setup
    I like to use a sling bag for walking around with my DSLR. My current Lowepro SlingShot 202 AW isn't deep enough to support my recently purchased a Canon 6D, 24-70 f/2.8, and 70-200 f/4 IS. It ...
  • Thanks for the info. I typically use the 17-55 2.8. Do you recommend a better lens? I have a tendency to always use f/2.8 which i thinks makes some of my closeups too soft. I have someone ...
  • If y'all are in a critiquing mood, I could use some thoughts...I've only been doing this for about a year just as a hobby. I'm interested in finding out (in y'all's opinion, what's wrong with my ...
  • I'll agree that lessons would be useful. Do you guys know of any better way (than posting links here and having people critique them) of having people look at your photos and offer ...
  • You didn't mention what you currently have and what you feel are its limitations. Just going on your hobbies/plan for studio work, that screams full frame for me. All other things aside, a crop ...
  • These were all done in Lightroom. I'd be interested in hearing what you're thoughts are on them. I'm not disagreeing with you, but (given my lack of experience) don't know what's bad about them. ...
  • The sole reason for the full-frame camera is for holidays and events (like friend's weddings who may be on a budget). With kids, not having a fast mult-purpose zoom just wouldn't work for me. I ...
  • They'd server different purposes, the 18-135 for vacation with the t4i. The 24-70 for local events and portrait/family photography. I'd still have my 50mm which serves as a portrait lens for the ...
  • Might have missed this below, but my current gut feeling is to get the 6D body and the 24-70 f/2.8 L II used on eBay (less than $1500 from best I can gather right now). Given everything I've read ...
