Spent yesterday and today figuring things out (trying to really). Haven't had a chance to do much, but tried out some of the HDR things and had some fun there. Here's two from a park near me. Comments are welcome. Tips too.





    Obviously using the demo right now. Just getting a feel for it. I tried to keep both photos "natural" but get those odd colors and tones from the HDR side of things.

    Going out tomorrow to get some use out of the 50mm and the 75-300. Got a few filters to goof around with as well. Might have some more posted tomorrow to blast.

    I'm not a big fan of HDR but I like it when it's used more subtle like this. I would like to have seen a close-up of the tree on the left. Love the heavy backlighting caused by the sun. Excellent choice to use Canon!

    All of these pics employ the flash with the diffuser to fill in the shadows. I went late in the afternoon to get better light than the noonday sun.

    /FLEX!!! Mirror lens, baby!!

    I just won an eBay auction for a Reflex Nikkor 500mm f/8. $150, which is about half what the going rate is normally. The auction wasn't tagged right, so I don't think it got much traffic.

    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

    Wow. You could get decent pics from the last row of Staples with that.

    They probably wouldn't let me in with it, though.

    And a fixed f/8 means I'd have to shoot ISO2000 to get anything half-way decent indoors.

    Fact is, this is a bright daylight lens. That's what I bought it for.

    Come to think of it, you might want to take it to Huntington Beach Pier. You can shoot the surfers from the Pier and get some excellent shots from there, near the lifeguard tower right on the pier. I'll bet you could get some cool stuiff with that lens at dawn or dusk. Id suggest dusk and shooting off the right side of the pier toward the sunset.

    Might have to make a meet-up of this kind of outing. Be good to have a few brews after the fact.
