Labor day collection

posted on 7th of july, 2012

Hi all! Seems like it would be good to have an easy place for designers to find pictures celebrating American workers with Labor Day approaching, so I have started a new collection. I am looking for images of people actually working, not posed in front of equipment and nothing with no people. Please check your ports and let me know if you have something suitable. Pictures of mature adullts doing manual labor are especially invited because they are hard to find.

Here are a couple of mine that I have added.

Here is one possible image to consider of a ground crew member directing an aircraft:

Also, could you post the link to your collection? (If it is too late for you to edit your article above, perhaps an admin could add the link?)

I have added both. I especially like the one that shows his facial expression. Thank you for sharing.

Review: 70-200 4L USM

posted on 18th of july, 2012

I debated long and hard before buying this lense. It cost more than I had ever spent on glass before. And what I really wanted was the f2.8. But, if I went with the 2.8, I knew that I would need IS due to the weight of the lense and that added significantly to the cost. Plus, it was heavier to lug around and I love going outdoors and getting nature shots. So, I compromised and treated my self to the f4.

To help you understand where my review might or might not fit your skill level and goals, I will tell you a little about me. I am an aspiring pro photographer. I have managed to sell some photos but I know that...

Hi Qiwoman,

Yes. I have "upgraded" to the 2.8, but I will still be using this lens. It's better for "running around" due to being so much lighter and definitely easier to hand hold.

I like the 2.8 for the creamy background I can achieve, though. I think I will continue to use both lenses a lot. I also upgraded to a 5d Mark III and invested in some heavy duty tripods, so I will likely use the 2.8 exclusively for studio portraits. I didn't get the IS, so either strength training or tripods will be necessary with the 2.8 :-)

The Canon L lenses are real work horses. I try to be careful of my gear, but I'm a klutz! So I appreciate their solid build.

Thanks for the info, are you still using this lens?

Definitely enjoying it - which is indeed what it is all about. I think if I was in the market for a p&s d take a serious look at the new Sony RX100 or the Panasonic LX-7. I've never been terribly impressed with the S90/S95 from a stock perspective. But then, that is why I went micro four thirds in the first place! I am a bit of a sucker for new stuff, though :)

FREE Firmware update for Canon EOS 7D comes to the US

posted on 18th of july, 2012

I came across this information accidentally, and wanted to be sure that all you EOS 7D photogs are aware of the update coming out the beginning of August. It sounds great and will cause me to love my 7D even more.

First, it is FREE. And, if it's free, it's for me. It gets old to have to pay for every little update.

Second, with the upgrade you can now shoot up to 25 RAW images at an 8 fps burst rate, up from the current 15. Great for capturing pictures of a fast moving game, or in my case a series of animal shots.

Third, the update allows custom file naming, in camera RAW processing and re-sizing, simplifying post-capture processing.

Fourth, the ability to establish an ISO range and allow more control when the camera is in ISO Auto mode. That will save me some images, for sure....

@Shamtor. It is the first update since I bought my digital SLR. I am more happy than surprised. I paid good money for my camera, and it seems right the updates should be free. But in some cases I feel like things should be free and they are not. So I am happy not to be disappointed in Canon's policy.

Why you are surprise? All Canon firmware upgrade are free and I think Nikon too have the same logic.

Chance to win a new Nikon D3200

posted on 29th of july, 2012

I was looking for cool stuff to share on my Fun Photography Facebook page and came across a sweepstakes offer from Amazon. They are promoting two FB pages. You can like each page, leave your info and sign up to win a D3200, lens, tripod and more. If you win and the kit isn't quite what you want, use the $1000 included gift card to add more gear.

The offer asks for your phone and email, which I wouldn't give to just anyone on FB, but I trust Amazon. You can find the link on my page at Fun photography. I can't afford an Amazon style promotion, but if you like the page please click like and share with your friends.

About me

I have had a camera in my hand ever since I can remember. I was always the kid that wanted to trot down to the scene of the crime, or truck accident, or whatever, and get the images that would document that event for posterity. I guess its no surprise that I am naturally drawn to editorial and journalistic photography!
