Re: The 70-400 ssm G as a porttrait lens

I love her... err, I mean it, the photo... I guess at 160mm you are not far, Pako. Perfect shot. I guess in a studio, you don't really have many chances to use the lens at 400mm... My question is more directed to amateur models like this case, how they react to a big lens pointing at them. It is ve...

Re: Model shoot

Mick, you are certainly entitled to your opinion. Photography is an art form and what works for me might not work for others... you say the are overlit.. by that I presume you prefer more moody images - I don't. I don't understand what you mean about contrived? What attention do you believe that the...

Re: Birds 2013

I process my images using Adobe RAW with most of the default settings. I do use the correct lens profiles which correct for any lens anomalies and after opening the file in PS, I do levels, contrast, saturation and after resizing for web, sharpening... not much more. I am old school and believe in s...

Re: Birds 2013

Some lovely images Mark... sorry I'm not up to your standards with my "plastic" pics Greg.. The entire idea for me as a photographer is to get smooth backgrounds and not like a birder would want with recognizable backgrounds. Please also do not kid yourself, it takes a great deal or work a...

Re: New Year's Day sunset

I love the tree shot! I also did some shooting but I used the A99.

Re: Birds 2012

Unfortunately not Sury.. I travel quite a bit around the regions where I live to capture these images. The Hoopoe was about 2 and half hours drive... and for avian photography you have to be at your destination at sunrise which is just after 5am here at the moment.. so I was up at 2am, left by 2.30 ...
