Kry,

I just discovered this thread and your shots have improved greatly from page 1.

I discovered photography in October of 2011 and I am having a blast trying new things.

Here are a few of mine... I will post more in the coming days:

Thanks man!

Tranquility is incredible. Some amazing shots man. You're a Pentax user? Nice, how're you liking the K-5?

The wine glass shot with the GF2 is great, what was the setup for that?

I need to branch out into more areas of photography, I'm too comfy and settled in canine photography now. I don't however, have a wide angle OR walk around lens atm. I'll be getting the 15-85 soon though so can use that as both until I get the 10-22.

Did you use any filters for the sunset shot or tranquility?

Thanks The K-5 was a great camera with superb ISO performance for a crop sensor and a killer user menu.

The wine glass setup was similar to this except I had a piece of white paper underneath the glass to provide a reflection:


I didn't use filters for any of the shots. The only filters I currently own are UV filters.

The sunset shot was a single exposure in which I underexposed the sky by about 1 stop.

In regard to tranquility, it was pitch black outside when I created this shot. It is a 5 exposure HDR merge and tweaked afterwards. I actually need to re-shoot this scene as I lost my original files.

Yes, you should definitely try to shoot different things! What camera do you have now?

BTW, I no longer own the Pentax. I moved to full frame Nikon.

Some nice photos in this thread. Always wanted to give photography a try. Anyone know of a decent but cheap camera. I don't even know the difference between any of them haha, currently just using my camera on my phone. Been thinking about getting a decent one for some time though.

Awesome. I went with the Canon 7D. I was going to go full frame and get a 5D MK II but it's auto focus was awful in comparison to the 7D. For sports/action which is what I mainly like shooting, the 7D destroys it, and it's cheaper but a few hundred so it made it an easy decision for me.

Great photos.

I took some pictures of the eclipse that happened earlier (put the glasses over the lens) and it came out quite nice. I will post them later.

Nice! A fast crop body should work well for sports + you don't need as much reach with lenses as us full-framers which will save a bit of $.

I actually shoot a lot of action as well, I just haven't posted any of those shots yet. I actually shot a bit of action this past Saturday.

Post up some more shots!

I'm out tomorrow with the dogs so will do! And the Olympic torch is getting run through my city on the weekend to going to try and get there for that.

Yeah for actions I'm using the 70-200 f/4. I couldn't justify the cost of the f/2.8, even the non IS version. The f/4 is fast enough for me, and at 135mm+ the depth of field is shallow enough for now. Been a few times I've wished the background was blown out a bit more, so I will eventually get the f/2.8. But that's my most used lens.

Looking to get the EF-S 15-85mm as a walk around. I'm not planning to upgrade to full frame for a while yet, so the higher end EF-S lenses are fine for me, all they lack is L lens build quality, the optics rival the L lens series.
