Im tryin to find out if its worth buyin a 2003 model Canon 100-400mm from USA used. Price is $1050us ($1400au) shipped to USA address (which I can do at the moment :D).. Place on shopbot selling new for $1900au with warranty...

In my experience, the 100-400 is a lens you REALLY have to want for it to work. It's pretty slow, and it's a dust pump, but it can give great images in the right situations. (I borrowed one, and it wasn't for mine.)

Chances are I would go tokie 11-16, or canon 10-22...

Or Sigma 10-20, which I've found better than thr Canon. But I'd buy the Tokina if I was buying again, as it wasn't around when I bought the Sigma.

I was under the impression that portrait shots were meant to be a touch soft.

PP. MUCH easier to soften than sharpen after the event.

linarms wrote in post #6987240 (external link)
Your 70-200 would actually be a good weapon for this, especially if you can work outdoors. The longer your focal length, the more flattering the result ...

"Back off, zoom in" to slightly paraphrase the instructor at the wedding seminar I was at a few weeks ago.


cheers, juice (Canon shooter, Elinchrom lighter, but pretty much agnostic on brands.)

It's one of those oil rig platforms out in the sea..

I believe it's actually part of the desalination plant they're building out there.

So it looks like I might soon be doing my first 'glamour' shoot - nothing too serious, just some 'nice' photos for a girl I know at work. Any suggestions for set/location? I was thinking maybe inside, so I can bounce the flash. Any general suggestions? I'll only have my trusty 400D, 18-55 kit lens, nifty fifty, and on-camera 580EX.

Depends on the look you want, but around town has some really good places to shoot. Places like the top of King Edward Park, Civic Park Fountain, The rocks near The bogey hole all cop a flogging, but do so because they are easy places to shoot. There's an abandoned railway bridge over a creek at Toronto that pretty much every local "myspace model" has photos of herself on. Recently I did a sunrise session on Ash Island that was ok location wise, and only 1 car went past the whole time we were shooting.

No matter where you shoot, take the other half along so she can see for herself what happens on a shoot. She also makes the perfect person to stand watch over your camera bag, the models wardrobe / handbag etc ......

Enjoy.

Very nice stuff (although you could have cloned out some of the stone chips on the Silvia)

I started to, but far too many :o

Nice shots dude. Is this the left-hand Speedlite/Lumiquest-ish softbox, right-hand camera setup like last time? :D

lol, no :p

Last one from me for tonight and it's a bit of a puzzle. I cannot find any information about the structure in this photo. It doesn't appear on Google Earth, my 2008 UBD directory or any web search I do. All I know is that it is near Solander Point and I only saw it because I walked around the perimeter of Bare Island at La Perouse. Anyone have any ideas?

There are no prizes in this quiz other than my thanks. :)

My guess..either a desalination plant or an oil/gas rig towed in for maintenance.

Lots of gear over Christmas eh Warren? Last time I checked, you were missing a 10-22 and 24-70. :) How's the 10-22? Did you buy it new or find a nice bargain used?

Both 10-22 adn 24-70 are second hand and i got it for prices cheaper than brand new about 7 months ago.
10-22 - $750 - In really good condition. The AF/MF switch works on this one.
24-70 - $1400 - only 2 months old with warranty at DPP.

I knew I had seen this thing somewhere before. Stopped in at Newcastle harbour a few months back on its way there.

Here's an article on it...
