love the bokeh on that gerry!


Wow, just stunning. I think you have set the bar high on what can be done with this camera.

my favorite edit so far.

wow.
if it werent against the rules I would love for you to post that on the 5d2 or 5d3 pic thread with exif stripped to see if they love it too. I bet they would completely accept it was taken with the $3500 5d3.
(I know its the setup and the skill of the photographer but it would be fun to show people what this camera can do in the right hands. Like you and David especially)

Ain't that the truth! I'll never try another high key portrait without thinking of 'Marylin' :D

@Shutterwolf: For custom color temperature, press Q, select AWB, bring the 'K' (for Kelvin) option forward and with the selection wheel at the top you can pick the Kelvin temperature you want.

No, I am talking about something separate from White Balance. You can watch the whole video if you wish, but at 1:50, he shows that you can change the WB, then next option is for the color temp. It is completely separate. I already knew about AWB, I'm not THAT much of a noob haha :P

LOL silly butt it's in the AWB settings! Go to menu > white balance, and the very last icon on the screen is the COLOR TEMP and you adjust using your shutter wheel. See I know I wasn't going crazy I know what you talkin bout! LOL

Mine's defaulted on 5200K

EDIT: Makis beat me to posting it. lol

Ive got a question as well... with the Xti, I always had trouble focusing on something at night to do a long exposure.. Haven't tried it with the 60D, but I don't imagine it is much easier. Are there any good little "tricks" to getting proper focus at night? I will be getting a tablet hopefully tomorrow and will try that with the big screen, but i don't know if that will really help much or not for the focusing issue.

Also, can you adjust color temp on the 60D itself? I have seen that you can do it with the android dslr controller app, but I've never seen that adjustment on the camera.

I use live view and manual focus, zooming in on the part you want focus on with the magnifying glass on the top right.

This^^

Ahh cool. Thank you. I never explored that part of the WB settings. I usually use auto white balance. Only recently started playing with changing it.

Josh, if you shoot RAW, the in-camera white balance isn't important. You can change it in post, without affecting quality.

Sure, getting it right in camera is great, but it should be the last of your worries. I'd concentrate on aperture, shutter speed and ISO first.

Did you have to stand quite far away from the subject with your 85? Its a bit long on the 60D, isn't it?


its like shooting with a 135mm on full frame -
it really depends what you want to shoot! for tight headshots im usually 2 meters away for half bodies 4/5 meters and then for full lenght i am pretty far away

i enjoy the 85 focal lenght a lot almost as much as i loved shooting at 70mm with my 70-200 f2.8.

but before that i shot with my 100L so i got used to it

thanks a lot - emily soto - has really inspired me with her fashion work with the 7d - and im like hey we both have the same sensor - why can't i get as good of images as her!

haha i though long and hard on what to buy with my tax return and i ended up buying a lens instead of going full frame - the lighting helps a lot and with the lens as well - going to admit my background lighting for the shoot wasn't perfect so i spent some time on ps for that!

but im glad you enjoy my images!

Yeah with my Rbel Xt and 20D I worried about white balance. Nowadays I just set it to awb and fix in light room. Seems the white balances on the 60d are much better than my old cameras.
