My Dealer rang me up today and offered me one of the new 5d mark ii. I have to say i was tempted, 21 megapixels in a nice compact body, with the ability to shoot 1080i HD video.
Instead I've decided to get a 1ds mark iii from someone who was buying a 5d mark ii to replace their 1ds. Now unless you desperately need the video i'm not sure why you'd give up the superior features of the mark-iii. Unless you find lugging the so-solid mark-iii too much.
Anyway here's a quick shot that includes the new camera - yes it is on my desk ;)
Look at the amount of glass on that 85/1.2!
Christmas Parties are in full swing now - I love how people are at christmas parties, the music, the snowballs, the polar bears!
Thanks go to Rob from Solent Studios for letting me cover parties under his brand. Top bloke.
It's nearly christmas, and i thought i'd have a relaxing shoot with some like minded photographers over in the museum in southampton.
So we met up, 10 photographers and 10 models, and just had a blast trying out some new things, bouncing ideas off each other - was a great fun day and as always came away with some great shots!
Anyway - onto some samples
As a wedding photographer I often get asked many questions during my initial consultations, and lots of bridal magazines now regularly publish top 10 lists of questions (sensible and not so sensible ones) below is a light hearted look at some of the common (and not so common) ones! Thanks to Donna from topweddingsites.com for being the inspiration for the majority of the questions, I recommend brides to be as informed as they can be.
1.How Many Photographs do you take? and how many to you discard/keep?
I find this question comes up almost every time - although the discard/keep is a new twist on this. And it's a difficult one to answer.
Let me explain - because all my packages come with licensed images on DVD then some people want to know how many to expect, how many will be thrown away (though typically this isn't always a guide to quality).
Let me list the factors that effect this:
I don't have many good photos of me, being a photographer i tend to be behind the lens more than in front of, but, it was my wifes 30th the other day (she's still shocked she's 30!) and we went into the studio for some quick family shots.
I handed her the camera and posed myself, and this is what we got, so if you wondered what i looked like - wonder no more!
and i couldn't resist one i took of my son!
Ever shot RAW+JPG on your camera because you want the best of both worlds? well now you can do that without taking up any more space on your cards.
I used to use this facility in the now defunct Pixmantec's Rawshooter, well not the guy who helped with that (Michel Tapes) is now giving that functionality away for free!
