    The new tripod made this easy.

    Date Taken: 2010-10-03 17:51:07
    Camera: Canon EOS-1D Mark III
    Exposure Time: 20s (20/1)
    Aperture: f/9
    ISO: 100
    Focal Length: 43mm (55.9mm in 35mm)




    Also ran around the street with the tripod over my shoulder. It's so light and easy to set up that I can be very discreet.

    Can't wait to have a decent tripod.
    Nice, I have the 190CXPro3 & the 322RC2 head. So easy to lug around as it only weighs 1.29kg

    Yeah with the comera on it, it's really to counter-balance right on your shoulder. I was navigating crowds in Vegas and it worked great. When you find a spot for a pic it's so easy to set up and break down without a big ordeal. I saw one guy with a wobbly plastic tripod and chuckled under my breath.

    I was actually surprised that I was able to set up a tripod in various spots in Vegas, whenever I set one up in Long Beach someone tells me I need a permit to photograph.

    Which is horsecrap if you're in a public place.
    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

    permit to take photo's in public...lol, wtf?! paparazzi ****ing it up for the rest of us?

    I'll probably set up a small section of my studio for photography and such as I'm slowly getting into it more and more. I paint and draw mostly, using live models but when i've needed some high-quality photo reference (no time to have a model pose) I've relied on friends or freelance photographers.

    I have some lighting already but I guess I need a light box for products and still life kind of stuff.

    Fun "hobby" at the moment, but photography sure is expensive!!!
    I have a Canon T2i and Canon EF 24-70mm 2.8 USM lens.
    Next up is the EF 100mm 2.8 macro or a EF 50mm 1.4 or 1.2 primes

    You do need a permit for a pro shoot, whether still or film. If you have "pro" equipment, it looks like a "pro" shoot to people. The line is blurry.

    Sweet, just got paid for this. Guess it's a go.

    This is one of my fave live shots. Lil Wayne with some nice lighting. I tweaked a little since the old version had some noise.

    I'm due to shoot another show, they are an adreneline rush. On this show, the pit was saved for a film crew so they sent us back to the soundboard.
    I didn't want to go all the way back there so I took a right on the way back and just found a place in the crowd about row 10.
