    Sury,Does this thread include crazy looking bokeh? I have a tendency to challenge myself by walking around with my Reflex 500mm F8 lens to see what kind of bokeh I can get out of it.SigSony Reflex 500mm F8Sony Reflex 500mm F8Sony Reflex 500mm F8Statistics: Posted by smulnik — Tue Oct 17, 2017 2:42 am

    Sury, Nice! My favorite is the second photo. And I think you have Extra Sensory Perception. I was wondering if there was a bokeh thread. SigStatistics: Posted by smulnik — Tue Oct 17, 2017 2:31 am

    This is the closest thing to a beach that I have from this weekend. My friends starting shooting another art film on/in the Mississippi river. Sometimes I think that they're cRaZy. Sig24-70 CZStatistics: Posted by smulnik — Tue Oct 17, 2017 2:24 am

Alpha 55 video of a rare occasion

On Saturday, the Household Cavalry chose to provide a guard of honour for a wedding couple lucky enough to have planned their wedding for the day the mounted regiment was in town. I photographed the event from the unique viewpoint of an Alpha 55 fitted with a Sigma 8-16mm superwide zoom, mounted on a 3.5m high Manfrotto stand with a 7″ Lilliput HDMI monitor connected on a long HDMI cable to compose and follow the action. The sound is just what the camera recorded, no external microphone was used.

    Wow. Great video. I especially like the sound of the hooves on the cobbles. Your shooting overhead rig works really well in these sort of crowds. (Never seen the Household Cavalry with lances before?)
