I still wonder about image quality after reading more reviews.

On what? The 28mm f/1.8?

The funny thing is i was actually quite disappointed in my last import, I was having an issue or two with some colors being "crushed' or just completely off, and some things that -might- be a lack of DR on the 7D's part... Just issues along the lines of feeling i have to either underexpose my flower shots and push/mess with curves to get them to look "Right" or that i have a supposedly properly exposed shot that is blown out and pulling it back ends up in it looking "flat" and boring...

I dunno, I also think I might try a polarizer and see what happens, See if it sorta "evens out" what im trying to do

Or maybe im being overly critical of my own work again

You know, I found that my 7D, and probably even my 5D II, seriously over-saturates and makes the reds look SUPER funny. I'm not sure why ... it's very hard to make them look real-life. I had to play a lot in Photoshop Raw to get looking quasi-normal. Your shot looks nice though :)

I had the exact same thing with my 5Dc from some photos from last weekend. I was shooting at around f/2, 1/30th, ISO 1600, which is pretty much the limits of what usable light is for my equipment (5Dc with 85 1.8 and 28 1.8).

It was of course TERRIBLE light (fluorescent with yellow filters) and probably not even a full spectrum light (I'm guessing a measured CRI would be less than 60).
The skintones looked terrible in the LR import, but by setting the LR camera calibration to Camera Neutral, some minor modifications to the reds, desaturating the reds a bit and lowering contrast they turned out OK-ish.

The ones that were really FUBAR I PP-ed to an instagram-esque B&W ;)


I guess the real lesson is that next time I'll bring 2 flashes again, as usual...


Some of my lenses focus beyond infinity...!

^ The sunflower shots are cool but I can't help but think whenever I see a medium shot of a sunflower how cool a macro shot would be on the center of it.

I was bored and wanted to see if i could do -anything- out there when its completely dark.. Without a tripod... It was more "Can i be creative in this situation and get anything interesting" than any serious stuff.. plus i had been working and wanted to go relax by trying to be creative...

The second one woulda been better if i could back up a bit, Id like to point out it was REALLY dark out there and hard to really compose anything even using live view...

This is me working way outside my comfort zone, doing a type of photography i never do, I think that considered, i did not do too badly... But they are very amateurish and suck.. ;)

^ There comes a time in every photographer's career that he has to shoot backlit leaves... Don't worry... ;)

That time for me was YEARS ago! ;)

Lol those were more "im bored, lets go shoot stuff" than me trying very hard, i was just messing and if i got anything decent i was going to post it.. As i said the second one might have been rather good if it was wider (To exaggerate the perspective on the stop sign a bit more..) but eh..
