this one looks really nice. my only input on this is the horizontal alignment. it bothers me a tiny bit. just me. I also always messed with my alignment even though i have a guide in my viewfinder.

or is it distortion?

its distorted from the wall it was old brick and nothing was really straight and even with the tweaking it looks worse but i think the wonkiness really adds to this one photo particularly and the customer wanted it as is and gave me no wiggle in straightening i was told no because i produced a slightly straightened version and he told me no.

had my shoulder surgery Thursday, so I've just been sitting around on pain meds. looks like everyone's been getting some nice shots. I just got a call that my Sigma 70-200 is repaired, it took a long time because a part was back ordered from Sigma. The total for the repair is only $178 though so I feel great about that. now if i can just figure out how to use it with 1 arm :-)

dang dude i think that is a cheap price for how mangled that looked and the drop it survived i pray for a quick recovery and a restoration brother!

You really threw me for a curve with your description of this being called a "bass joe". Interesting instrument. Interesting name. But I couldn't make any sense of why it would be called a "bass joe".

Fortunately one of your later posts shows it from a different angle and I could see the name "Bass Jo" on the tuning head. And looking at that picture I realized that it did, in fact, look like a banjo on steroids! Guess my Monday brain was still in weekend mode, but I'll sleep better tonight.

And I prefer the color shot of it. I think it shows off the lighting better.

lol thanks im not sure why im just into the black and white but the color one is nice too, but thank you for the input and critique.

tested my 24-105 and i think i will stick with it.

my ever test model(my son) shot with F11 ISO800 and 1/100sec handheld. 430EX ii onboard with Demb flip it diffuser. I think it's sharp enough, how much more if i'll use light modifiers(umbrellas).

Oh I would definitely get a free meal... But I think even paid photographers get that perk! Lol.

I've shot a wedding and also from essentially everything I've read - Pro wedding photographers don't have time to eat, including during when everyone else is eating at the reception, as that is when its toast and speeches. Any bride would likely be crushed if any major segment was lacking for her Big Day. Pack a few energy bars and water for the day and hope its enough. Raw stress-energy is what typically sustains photographers through 8+ hrs :lol:

find a "wedding photo list" (~here~ (external link), for example) and do that friend who's shooting it for free a favor and hand her a typical wedding day list. If she gets most or all of those shots - there is an excellent chance the bride will talk to her again after the wedding :eek: ;)

All that aside, its typical for wedding photographers to get paid $2000-3500 for shooting the bride's most important day of her life. There is much at stake - you get one chance to do it right. If you do it for a meager amount or free - make sure the bride's 'expectations' are pretty 'easy going'

just offering some thoughts for your consideration... I'm not happy with tonight's election outcome so take the above with a grain of salt - I started pouring strong drinks when I saw what the outcome was going to be... And I'm Canadian! :confused: :mad: :p

what angle do you have your speedlight at? pointing straight up or angled? Looks like a good event rig...

Funny, I have actually read that photographers do eat during downtime/dinner, since everyone else is eating... Because who likes pictures of themselves stuffing their faces ;) it's pretty easy to pick up a camera and go, especially when you get good at predicting when a random toast will happen. Big venues I can see it being a problem.

I am definitely not expecting pro type pay, I can only dream of being that good. But something of an offer would have been nice, like gas or a trade or whatever, especially since i don't know them. Like Joe mentioned people will keep asking me to do it for free, and as you all know photography is a lot more than it seems.

And... I won't say anything about the election :D

hahahaha you're funny buddy.

Angled up only. i can control the light with the demb flash diffuser. if i want less harsh or light, i can just angle it up or backward a little bit.

if the subject is far away, i'll angle it forward to push more light in forward.

if you want to just bounce to the ceiling, just flip the diffuser all the way back.

And I was under the impression toasts happen before or towards the end of dinner but I'm sure it varies. Though honestly when I was shooting the anniversary I was too stressed/hyped to eat much at all.

I was foolish to say anything at all - you are the wiser one :cool:

better there be arguments about lenses on this or any thread that to mention politics. 'My bad'

cheers

have you used it enough in varied situations where you can recommend it? Taking that amount of usage into account - what is your rating out of 10 for effectiveness and ease of use, if you don't mind?

wonder if it would fit the slightly smaller 320EX ok...
