    Pictures from party

    Here is one of the pictures I took at the party. I used the Tamron 28-200. My friend gave me some pointers and got me out of Aperture mode and told me to shoot inside using Manuel mode. Here is my first time out of Aperture mode. LOL

    Looking good! Is this a new lens for you? 1/10 a sec, gotta love SSS! That's pretty close to my HH limit. I could probably do 1/8 if I try hard enough, but it's pushing it! Without SS, 1/10 is still barely doable, but is like 1/10 shots!

    Looks good, Frank.

    You are brave at 1/10 sec., but it seems to be workin' for ya!

    I almost always use Manual Mode, unless I am shooting single handed, like I was today, during the storm. Had one hand on the umbrella, making like Mary Poppins and the other right-handing the A700, in wide angle and AUTO mode. Shooting outside, though, AUTO is a bit more forgiving.

    Good job, though, Frank. I wonder what the rest of the crew might be thinking?

    Yes it is a new lens a friend let me use. I like it for shots like this. It is better than using the kit lens. I wish I knew about these settings when I was at the expo.

    1/10 sec. man frank you got some steady hands, and manual mode eh, cool I haven't went that far yet, can't blame the camera in manual it's all you LOL so I stay away! Maybe a bit more POP with the flash? or would you then be getting lots of reflection of the balloons?

    It was the first time I tried it. I just matched what my friend was shooting with his Canon. I do think he had faster glass. I darkened the image in PS to take some of the light off the balloons. I feel if the image don't come out good I have nobody to blame but myself anyway. So I might as well pull out all the stops and try everything. You see how I murdered those poor young ladies at the Erotic Expo.LOL I needed those pointers before I went to the Expo. My friend said I should have called him he would have came with me. I wish I had then I would have only murdered a few of those young ladies.

    You should use an image mask and darken just the balloons so she really stands out! But it still looks great!

    The light clothing and the light background makes it a bit tough doesn't it, but thats another challenge to work with.
