nice choice of focus on these. What lens is this? I'm loving the DoF
Thanks, IC. Canon EF 100mm 1:2:8 USM Macro.
Ugh. Got to shoot more fashion later this afternoon. I'm not feeling it today at all. I would rather be shooting bugs or something out on a trail somewhere. I really hate it when I get into these funk moods.
I feel you Crane, sometimes it's a challenge to do something you love and something you have to do for money at the same time. I haven't felt like snapping pics of anything lately..just been in a rut really. I hope it goes well, and I'm sure once you get in there shooting things will get better.
Yesterday I went to the jazz lawn party at Governors Island. My friends and I dressed up like Gatsby/1920s. Fun time!
A few shots.
Really great, shooting an ex-BSB is quite cool. I'm curious what the pictures will look like, let us now when we can find them somewhere online.
I've taken a short trip to Basel before picking my gf up from the train station on Friday. The combination of open-air cinema and life jazz festival resulted in a lot of crowded or blocked places. But I've found a place where I want to go to take a picture of the city at night in the coming week if I can manage to remind it. Here some random stuff I considered nice:
mellow and Szeph, looks like a fun time. I guess jazz festivals are going on all over the world this time of year.
wow, great page here! Loving all the work everyone is putting out!
Couple from yesterday:
And my favorite:
last one is very nice! Great focus..is this the 1.2?
I don't think so, Bokeh looks somewhat "artificial" to me. Is it a HDR or some form of exposure blend?
Thanks il, it is with the 1.2, I don't remember if it was at 1.2 then though, but yes it is HDR. No there isn't any artificial bokeh though.
It was shot at 1.8 looking at my exif.
Wow, it was really looking more like film grain in the bokeh area which led me to believe it was somehow artificially modified. You should do a lot more pictures with that lens or at least post a lot more of them
I just finished reading "Night Photography: Finding your way in the dark" and just had to try it out. But I'm now 110% convinced that i need a tripod.
Ah, I see what you mean. Well, I have only gotten the lens a couple of days ago, so I have a bunch of time to keep taking pictures with the lens !
I must say though, do NOT get a cheap tripod. Invest in a really good one, trust me I am using a cheap $70 lens and the thing is a piece of shit. I am going to invest in a $300 one soon (hopefully it is worth the money), but with long exposures the head tends to shake and give a blurred image. So even if you aren't that great at photography no matter who you are a good tripod is a must. If it helps I think I narrowed down my selection to this one:
Btw, those pictures are great!
Few from today
