for the diffuser, i only tried 4 diffusers and i like this the most. this stays in my camera bag all the time. it will work even when there's no ceiling or wall.

thanks for the 24-105 link. i've seen that site too.

absolutely - that's where I read most of the reviews first of the my current lens line-up. I like how he often had two different reviews for the same lens - for a crop body and for a FF body...

Cars that are moving or parked ones?
def difference there...you may need reach if they are moving.
For parked cars...the 17-55 is ultra sweet on the 60D example below. If you're looking for the UW look then the either the 10-22 or the 11-16 should work.

QUOTED IMAGE

Parked cars.. With the 17-55 would u say the sigma or the canon one?

Sweet! Good work. Looks like you put a lot of effort into this. bw!

Thanks CL, I did put a lot of time into that project, but the visibility paid off well!

Marc, I love your studio shots, those grey tones are very great.

Care to show your setup? I'm fine with the clean perfect white look but seamless light gray... :(


Hi, I'm David.

I would say that if it's in your budget, the Canon for sure...imo the Canon 17-55 is nearly "L" quality, I loved it while I owned it.

Hey guys trying to decide on my next lens..I pretty much shoot anything like to shoot cars. Here is my current list

18-135
50mm 1.8

Here are the lens I'm considering

Canon 17-55 ( super expensive tho)
Canon 70-200 F4 ( had it before returned it didn't think I would use it as much)
Tokina 11-16
Canon 10-22 ( had it got overwhelmed over price returned it)

I guess I kinda feel like one day I may go full frame maybe I should get L lens but I'm trying to get that out of my head n buy for what I currently have., also I want my next lens to be sharp.
Advice greatly appreciated

If you can swing it, the 17-55 is is really an amazing lens on a crop. Combine that with a good zoom (eventually, if you need it), and you can have a really versitile kit with just two lenses. I have a bunch in my sig, but the only two I use much at all anymore are the 17-55 and the 70-300L.


Cameras: 7D2, S100
Lenses: 17-55 f/2.8 IS USM, 18-135 STM, 24-70 f/4L IS USM, 50 f/1.4 USM,70-300L IS USM

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

That's funny, in our wedding photog's contract it stated that they will take a break of at least 30 minutes during dinner I believe, and regardless we made sure they had time to sit down and eat. There isn't much to photograph during the meal except for people eating, which is never flattering.
