Definitely not out of logan. Norwood is a safe bet, along with Hanscom which would be logical seeing as it's partially military.

We say "Bollocks"

Not bullocks.

Bollocks = testicles
Bullocks = castrated bovines

:rolleyes:

Here in 'Merica, we just say balls.

Any POTN CCW holders a member at the MRA in Woburn? I'm liking this forum more and more.

I was but my membership lapsed and I haven't renewed it. Still shoot there when I can with my friends who are still members.

so, shot a little wedding last night with the t3i. overall great experience, but it didn't come without hiccups.

the couple had a hired photographer for the first 2 hours. they weren't going to have a photographer for the second half of the wedding, so i offered to shoot what i could. just so everyone knows, i was a guest at the wedding. the couple is my newly remarried inlaws. the expectations are not those of a professional, however, i'd like to deliver as best i can.

anyway...issues arose early on, when i set the camera to auto-iso and it seemed to be stuck at 400. i was getting overexposed shots, underexposed shots...etc...all in Tv mode. i went back and started switching ISO values manually, and ran into more problems when my 430exII stopped firing for some reason. not sure if its something i pushed, but it switched from ETTL mode to TTL mode. i switched it to manual and it still wouldn't fire. i disconnected it from the hotshoe and re-connected it, still no dice. then i shut it off and turned it back on, and hit the manual flash button on the flash to MAKE it fire...it fired, went back into ETTL mode, and we were once again shooting flash photography.

lastly, focusing was a huge problem. the venue decided the best weddings are the ones with NO lights on...that was an obscene problem for focusing for a solid half hour...literally no keepers were taken in that timeframe. afterwards my father in-law turned the lights up just a hair, allowing for much improved focusing, especially on the 70-200 f4. i manually focused with my kit lens and the 50 1.8 and surprised myself with a few good keepers. overall im unsatisfied with the outcome. i'd say i've got 10 good pictures of the dance portion of the reception, and maybe 20 good pictures total.

in light of all that...what can i do to aid in focusing in low light situations? i was using the kit lens 18-55 3.5-5.6, 50 1.8, and 70-200 f4 non-is. and the t3i. i switched between center focus point and auto selection...

anyway, im grateful for the experience, and the wedding was a blast. also the handful of good pictures i did get will look good in a hard bound photo book.

I shot my sister-in-law's wedding back in the day right before digital was really taking off.. I think I went through about 6 to 8 rolls of film. I used my Canon 550EX flash with a battery pack. I didn't have total darkness to deal with but that flash and battery pack sure would help. I got a bunch of good shots, so I was happy. One of these days I'll upgrade to the 580EX.

Faster lenses + higher ISO.

This thread should get a "Mk II" designation, instead of a (2)

Fair enough, but those are outdated :)

Weren't they outdated back when Nathan said it originally back on the first page of this thread, in January of 2012? Lot of spammers just regurgitate what someone else has already said, in hopes they'll seem to be on-topic and get missed.
