    Adam,

    Sorry if this has been mentioned earlier or in a previous thread...but were you considering the 50mm f/1.2L when you bought this? Or, was it just between the Canon and Sigma 50mm f/1.4?

    I like the processing and angle on #8. The rain is a cool added effect!

    That E30 looks a lot better than the one I have. :)

    Nice start! Now, work on slightly different ratios so the images have a little more "depth". The lighting is a tad flat. Also, at those settings, I'm going to guess the window light didn't have...

    Looks like a nice lens Adam. Why did you decide on this over the Canon 50mm?



    Shhh...some Nikon lurkers might start bragging all their caps are like that. ;)

    If you like shooting in available light, the higher ISO would be a big plus for the T1i.

    Yeah definitely charge more Nick. I got $500 for being a second shooter. The main photographer is a friend of mine, and I encouraged him to not discount heavily. IMO, word of mouth will get him...

    Thanks for the comment.

    Ditto on the B&W. I still prefer using the channel mixer in Photoshop. I have a good list of some "film recipies". :)

    First wedding, 2nd shooter

    Great work Adam! I've never been scared of high ISO. Even with my XTi, a "properly lit/exposed" high ISO shot comes out just fine. :)

    Just go into the menu, and use the "reset" option. This will put back all settings to factory set.

    If it still happens, your shutter is bad, and is staying open too long.

    I love the 50mm f/1.4 wide open. It gives great isolation to a specific part of the photo while maintaining the "feel" of the rest. I always felt it really shines with people...even at high ISO.

    50mm f/1.4 price increase?

    It looks like just this week (or close to), B&H raised their price on the 50mm f/1.4 from $325 to $399. Plus, almost everyone is out of stock. Is there a change to it?

    Luckily, I already have...
