2 recent big moments -

The day I brought the van home that I am converting into a family campervan




The moment we told Callum he is going to be a big brother


congrats, life changing event for everyone, second kid usually changes the first kid a lot.

and of course, starting over with a newborn is tough. Highly recommend a 50mm macro! I find the working distance best for babies.

Congrats to you and your family Eddie as it grows.

Looking forward to seeing your van conversion adventure as well.

Congratulations to you all Eddie - what great news. Will all 4 of you fit in the campervan?

And, I have the Canon Pixma Pro 10S too and I love it.

Got my a6500 in yesterday with the 18-105 and my Sigma 30 1.4 came in today. Then realized for the price that I paid for the whole package ($2200) I could've almost gotten an a7ii with kit lens and 55 1.8 ($2,550).

Overall though I think I made the right decision. Even though the a7ii is a FF sensor, the better AF, the 4k, and the smaller form factor of the a6500 is the better choice now and I'll wait and possibly get a next generation a7 body if I feel the need later on.

6500 is fun.... it is small and can shoot the hell out of anything moving. I like having it in the bag...... well an A9 would be nicer but I like it as my A7RII back up or sports cam

ok guys here's my tutorial on how i modify the background blur using tilt shift blur. You will also see how i do my selection to extract the subject using the quick selection tool, the lasso tool and the pen tool hand in hand. Then you will see my settings on refine edge.

it's 24 minutes of your life though. it's long because it's targeted not only to advance users but also to the new ones so i did not make any speedup or shortcuts.

Please bare with my poor accent. I sound boring too because i did it 2am in the morning. i can't make my voice sound lively because my son was sleeping. Also I used my Tascam DR-10L audio recorder with an Aspen Lapel mic.

I think I'm going to order it. With coupon off of another website, it comes out to slightly less than $200, with free shipping and free returns. I'll give it a shot and see how it is. Any issues with the straps loosening itself joon? Reading some reviews, it seems like the most common complaints are the latches getting scratched up (not a big deal for me) but also that the straps seems to loosen themselves.

The straps are rock solid. I wear it while shooting and keep the straps tight so the bag is stable while I'm moving around and it holds in place. I've scuffed the latches....its bound to happen when the front of the bag comes in contact with concrete. Not a big deal IMO....you buy a bag like this to subject it to sort of punishing situations...scuffs are going to happen. The material of the bag seems super durable though....plus its really rigid, but flexible.

Just be careful about making sure everything is zipped before you pick up the bag. I actually keep the locking straps in place on one side of the bag and only access my gear from one side to minimize the risk of forgetting to zip something up.

I had a near incident when I unzipped my bag for the bag checker at disney and he propped it upwards really roughly to check it like a top loading bag....loxia 21 rolled out stopped on his body.

Edit: Prefer this split tone version since the original had some distracting background color.

great image, and yeah the attention to the relationship between the colors in the frame are what make it great.

"distracting color" Speaking like a true subscriber to color theory. I've been doing the same...focusing on specific contrasting colors in the frame...desaturating or reducing the luminance of "distracting colors"..split toning to create greater contrast between the shadows and highlights etc etc.
