this bee looked like he was gonna charge like a bull with his back leg up and all hunched over looking all nasty. love the angle i got this fella at and he conveniently perched with the green background behind him.

would have liked just a shade more DOF, maybe by one stop; but he flew off after the first shot when the strobes fired. i was lucky to even get this one.

sb800 top left. illumination with bounce card only. sb600 front right at 45deg fired directly at subject. iso 400 used to expose the greens and highlights of the orange on the bee.

thanks guys. no bug this time. :)

my next project is a wooden carving of a dragon that i wanted to give a really dark, devilish appearance. i polished him up with some water to get as much reflection from the strobes as possible and it made the wood a darker colour.

sb800 top right with orange gel flter.
sb600 farrrrrr away front top left at -3EV

couldn;t figure a way to expose for the shadows as well without setting the strobe high right so the ridge of the eye cast the shadow into into his eye socket. as a result I blew the highlights on the leading edge of the top ridge of his eye, maybe could have moved the strobe a little further to the left of the subject. i also chopped the edge of his tusk on the left side. idiot.

Nice shot Daryl, I was there as well. I was very disappointed with my shots of jets in the air-I was shooting into the sun and there was a weird haze in the air (added in with the smoke trails of the jets). Where were you sitting at? Our family got there around 11AM and by that time all of the front row spots were taken so I was shooting way far back with my 70-200 and it was a joke. I feel your pain for a longer zoom.

Sitting? From around 10-3pm I was standing near the few media photogs located on the front-left side where the jets took off, but still to the right of where the three Thunderbird jets sat for hours--I was also late because I've been taking the Bengal back and forth to the veternary hospital over the last few days, kissing the new camera equipment bye-bye since yesterday's bill alone was just under $500 and this doesn't count the costs from the two days prior. Anyway, this also meant that the sun was off to my right when looking at the field and directly in my line of sight when panning right to left. Being surrounding by much taller individuals also restricted my panning.

I took this photo with the same set up, also from yesterday:

LOL--it was the same show, same time of day, using the same equipment. I basically wanted smoke, afterburners, background or something other than just a plain sky so that is want I tried to shoot.

Here, today would have probably been better to photograph the aircraft since there were clouds; however, I already planned to shoot soccer at UNLV today--just returned home and the photos are downloading.

This shot is too distracting for me. The mountain is taking away from the jets- maybe shoot wide open to limit the depth of field if possible. I like the smoke trail on the bottom jet.

I have other frames of the shot, but the jets weren't aligned like they are in that photo--a little something out of my control just like I can probably take more photos of strikes and still miss a "hit" since baseball players may "miss" a strike though I've captured it. Most of my "group" shots at the show are "plain janes" since they were higher in the sky when they were performing (excluding the shots with smoke). Of course, you probably have your own similar shots.

This one I liked simply because I was Army Airborne.

still can;t get a shot i like of a hoverfly. i think this one has too much dof and makes it a little too clinical losing some of the character. interstingly this is what most people seem to like. maybe i'm wrong in the shallow dof i normally like. tried maybe 20 shots of him hovering but still can;t get the shot. keep trying i suppose.

i sprayed some mist on this guy a few minutes before hand to try and get a shimmer off his wings with the strobe. looks like it worked quite well and it was hot enuf today for him to be grateful i think !

sb800 close top left. sb600 front right. sb800 should have been positioned lower shooting up at his eyes.

I bet if you flash all those flashes at once you'd be able to see it from space ;):p.
I'm getting annoyed with the onboard flash on my D40, need to get a SB400/600.

LOL. I guess I'll slack off and post a soccer photo from yesterday. I thought about cloning out the spare feet, but I was too lazy especially since I won't print it and have a lot of other photos to check out.

Although I'm not into bugs, I do like your shots. Keep it up.

K1W1,
Are you bribing that guy with treats or what? He looks like he is after something.

From yesterday afternoon--timing's off, but it is cleaner than those "contact" photos I took across the entire field since this ones only about 3/4s across the field. Where's that longer lens.... I wish.

There were 25 bikers sitting under their tree having a barbecue. The parrots were giving not particularly subtle hints that they wanted us to leave so they could investigate the left overs. Whilst they are not tame they are quite happy to sit within 5 or 6 feet of humans and let you know that they think it's their feeding time.

Rooz, another great insect shot. I agree that a little less dof may have been better, i would have made the edges of the plant less distracting.
I'm surprised how you got so much depth of field, in the exif I saw you are using only f/7.1, and on the picture I see a full set of extension tubes. I thought with such a set-up the DOF would be much smaller?

K1W1, great shots of the parrot. The detail of the feathers is just brilliant.

so did i thats why i originally set it to 7.1 thinking it would be shallow enuf. when you look at that pic without exif, you'd swear it was at least f11. keep in mind thats only cropped a tiny bit for composition aswell so its not like a cut out 50% of the shot. light is a funny thing huh ?

Getting back to the DOF i really prefer, nice and shallow. the sigma was really made for this type of shot to show off it's unbelievable bokeh. the blurred antennas are a bit distracting but thats the tradeoff i had to make so the foreground/ background were OOF.

the sb800 was fired from the top left aimed parallel to insect so the illumination from sb800 bounce card only. even with that bounce card i can still see a number of hotspots on his neck area. have to figure a way to address this cos it really bugs me. (boom boom ! :D). if anyone has any ideas...

the right side of the shot is lighting from direct sunlight. the AWB did a terrific job balancing this flash/ sun lighting so i didn;t have to change it around at all in PP. in fact the SWB and FWB are both incorrect.

Ooh. I got a ride in the second one once (Summer 1975). Not that particular one, but same type airplane (P-80 Shooting Star). First AF jet I flew in. It was just a joy ride. It was another 4 years until I started pilot training.

I should correct something: This, and the one I flew in are probably both the T33 variant, which was the trainer. The P80 was a single seat airplane. I don't know if they ever made a 2 seat P80.

Nice capture though I would have tried to take one shooting the other way so as to capture the face. Regarding the lens comment, faster glass is probably appreaciated much more near sunset, sunrise, and in low level lighting situations. My Sigma 70-300mm for example takes some nice shots, but once the sun starts setting--it's "hunt and seek" time, which is sort of worthless for action and low contrast shots.

This is one of the accidental photos. My son and his friends were riding their bikes on the street one evening and my camera was new at that stage. :)

I think I like it but I'm interested in other peoples impressions.

I like this photo, but if it were mine, I think I'd make it more iconic. By that, I mean I'd crop it square, and clone out any remaining stuff in the lower left. Then blow it up as far as it would go, hang it on the wall in a nice modern frame, and call it art.

Thanks both of you. I wasn't sure about the trees. I have already cloned out a power line in the top right so I will play with the trees and also Eric's suggestion about cropping.
I can actually bring out some colour from the helmet but I think I like the dark image better than the lightened one.

This is one of those photos you can do so many things with. For instance, you can make sure the black stays black, and then play with different colors for the background. Being sky, it should be fairly easy if you wanted to change from the blue to a light violet (or green or whatever best fits the decor of the room your going to hang it in). It's also a good candidate for a monochrome image. It's the simplicity that makes it so flexible.

This would have to be one of the most photographed scenes in Victoria. It's the boat house on what was the private lake of the summer property belonging to the Nicholas family (manufacturers of "Aspro"). It's a couple of km from where I live and we had 3 great mornings of heavy mist and so I thought I would spend an hour or so on Friday morning getting some real nice atmospheric shots in the mist. What happened? Friday was brilliantly fine with not a cloud in the sky! I went for a walk anyway.

That's interesting. When Rich first posted the picture on Flickr I looked at it and my eyes started at the top centre and followed the strip of light down in to the water. I hardly noticed the lamp post the first time I looked at the image.

It's an imperfect shot - it was too dark in the room, handheld without VR of course, underexposed so ISO 1600's NR ate a lot of the fine detail, but hey, I still like it. My friend, for all of being an XTi user, has a knack for posing.:p

Thanks! I cropped a little. It was shot through glass and I had a reflection off to the left side. I kinda like it better than the original, though. To me, it immediately draws my attention to their heads and I see them resting/sleeping. All in all with that being my first ever shot/PP I'm happy as hell!

Sorry for the delayed reply rawpaw18, after playing with the image for a while I just didn't like the pole in it... it interferred with my complete view of the shore line. I was immeadiately drawn to the far shoreline and the bench the tree was natural then there is this lamp pole. For me the lamp pole just did not fit the serenity of the scene. I chopped it down brightened a little, it helped some with the shoreline but I'd prefer it without the pole. It was a subjective comment, no biggy. :)

You got to see the Capilano Suspension Bridge in late fall and it wasn't raining? Man, are you ever lucky!

I'm sorry you didn't make it to the other side...and you had to pay the admission fee too. :( At least you got some great photos out of your visit. If you ever do cross that bridge, I found it helps to just keep your eyes on the other end. I hope you'll get to come back and try it again some day. Or maybe go for the Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge (http://www.findfamilyfun.com/lynncanyon.htm) instead, which isn't as long as the Capilano, but it's free.

I'm not really afraid of heights, but going down steep slopes makes me nervous. This one in Zion National Park came with a warning sign that people had fallen from the trail to their deaths. I'm glad I didn't read it before I went up...

For me the lamp pole just did not fit the serenity of the scene. I chopped it down brightened a little, it helped some with the shoreline but I'd prefer it without the pole. It was a subjective comment, no biggy. :)

Cool,
Just was wondering what I could of tried differently.
Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated.

Well, I hope you don't mind a little tough love. You got a good exposure on your uncle, but in the process, both your backgrounds are blown out and very distracting.

On the first photo, fill flash would have killed the nice shadows on your uncle's face, so this is more a location issue, plus, there's something distracting in the sky, but I can't figure out what it is.

I think you could have saved the second photo by metering the background and using fill flash.

It doesn't matter what lighting setup you're using. If you don't want to blow out the background, you have to properly expose or underexpose the background. You have to ensure that you can correctly light your subject though. If not, you will end up with an underexposed subject.

These are photos I shot outside, exposing for the deep blue sky. I then used my SB-800 off the camera in a shoot through umbrella to light the subject matter up front.

I see it just the opposite...with the somewhat tame look of the model compared to the background, it makes her stand out to me. So cool that photos can be seen completely different from one person to the next.

thanks for the comment. With film I probably spent as much time in the darkroom as I did behind the camera. Now Photoshop is my darkroom and I'm continually amazed at the power of the program. That doesn't mean you need it to make great pics. We have plenty of incredible photographers to attest to that. But I find it a very powerful tool that lets you expand your vision in different ways.

Well worth the price and addition to my tool kit. Every bit as valuable as any lens strobe or body.

In my opinion, desert racing is much worse than rock crawling--I did end up sending in my 70-200mm F/2.8 for repairs.

Also: A tidbit of advice, don't stand on the downside of a rock crawler and try to take a photo when the crawler is about ready to flip. Everyone else appeared to see it coming (or falling).

It's a Kookaburra. Size wise it's probably a teenager, about 12" from tail to head.
Kookaburras are in the Kingfisher family and eat meat things like worms and grubs. They are particularly partial to BBQ's because they think there will be some nice uncooked steak on the menu. :-)
Around here they have no fear and will land right beside the lawnmower to get a worm or we've even had one fly over an outdoor table in a cafe and take cake out of my (then about 3 yo) daughters hand.

TNB,

I've heard of racing rhinos but I've never seen it in my life.

Got any pics of the modified ones? Supposidly those guys are friggen crazy. My kinda folk :D
At Saturday's race, the only photo I took was of the winner on the drive-up podium--I really didn't want to be at the start of a race at 6AM to watch the ATV, MCs, etc.

Sunday's race (which was a much smaller local race) only consisted of the two ATVs shown in the earlier photo--the rest were motorcycles. The red one had some mods, but the owner had just purchased it and didn't have a lot of mods installed. However, it's my understanding that a lot more people usually show up at those races and that they will host a Rhino/Rzr/Etc. race depending on the number that show up. Perhaps, next time I'm out that way.

The short version: One must practice and one must know one's equipment limitations--know when to shoot and know when to put the camera away.

Myself, I used to "force" a lot of "long" shots with a faster 70-200mm VR lens simply because I started with a slower 70-300mm lens. On the flip side, the slower 70-300mm lens couldn't capture a lot of shots I took prior to my purchase of the 70-200mm VR lens because of the lack of quality lighting. Did it matter? Not really since the end result was the same--deleted and trashed photos.

The other basics are the same: lighting, composition, and so on. I also prefer to "pan" over "trap focus" since I'm not as restricted. I also don't care for a monopod since once again, I feel restriced. I basically started out taking photos of remote control offroad cars, which can be very irratic since they are bouncing, flying, and crashing around at some very high speeds for their scale size. Even one of the R/C jets I took a photo of was clocked at 200mph "real speed"--Full Size jets were much easier to shoot as long as I had room to pan around the crowd.

In the following photo, normally I'd think that I had the shutter speed set too fast since it is "frozen" and the tires are not showing any "motion blur". However, most motorcycle photos I've seen appear to be frozen. Hence, the target audience is another consideration.

TNB - thanks but one motorcycle photo is never enough. :)

I posted the following photo just to show the amount of air. Notice the other guy taking the photo--not the lens I was using for sure though as close as I was I could have probably used my 17-55mm for some other shots. However, not for that shot.

Not sure if I have posted a pic of this before - My other main interest is music
all aspects - including listening to it and yes, as you can see, I still play my Vinyl from time to time!!
(Michell Gyrodec, Rega RB300, Ortofon MC25FL)
10th sec to get the movement of the weights to show

U got very cool and expensive piece of equipment for playing music. this is high end of high end i guess. wonder what amplifier & speakers U use for the output?

btw, nice image showing the motion.

Im getting so frustrated with all this bad weather. It has been snowing and raining non stop for the last 5 days. Snow would be nice to shoot but its dark all the time and when the day comes, so does the rain and it all melts.

Had to shoot something and my Philips headphones were close :).

Thanks. If I would have cropped away the ground, you couldn't tell how much air the rider actually caught which would defeat the effect. I did take a few "ET" MX photos though I still haven't gone through very many MX photos yet since I still have a lot of SEMA and desert racing photos. Here's another MX shot.

I must say I'm very proud of this shot it shows just how beautifully I mow grass. I assume that your eye was drawn to the beautifully mown grass just under the Kookaburras wings. :):)

I think it's excellent, Rich. I'd not only keep it, but print & hang it.

Snagged this one last night. I carry both my D70s and my D300 when I am at the games (D300 photos are going to my D300 thread). This was taken with a regular ole D70s with a 50mm f/1.8 lense. Heck, the photo isn't even edited.

Rooz beat me to it .. you gotta be kidding me about being a keeper. this is a fantastic photo. I like everything about it, the sunset colors, swirling clouds, geese (?) trees.

A number one picture if you ask me
