D Z's ever growing obsession with photography

Recommended Posts

So I recently got a used dslr from JediMasterBen and I am absolutely hooked. I just got back from a nice 10 day vacation in Massachusetts and New Hampshire and figured I would start a thread of random shots that I liked.

 

Please feel free to give constructive critisism. Ive got pretty thick skin and really want to learn!

 

These particular pics were all shot with a Canon T2i with a Canon 24mm f/2.8 pancake lens.

For these being taken on a t2i I am amazed! You have obvious talent. Great shots!


Also what did you use to edit? Are you shooting in RAW?

Wow, thank you for such a compliment!

 

Yes. Shooting in RAW and post editing in lightroom.

Very nice shots. I've always had a fascination with photography also, something that was further prompted by this hobby. I find it hard to get out there and actually take photos though, kinda annoying.

I defintely feel ya there. Life is so crazy for me right now and I dont see it getting much better any time soon. All you have to do is walk out ur front door and you have beautiful scenery to shoot though! I would love to be able to photograph some of your vinyard!

The vineyard puts on a good show in summer, the start of autumn and spring but at the moment, in winter, it just looks like a bunch of dried twigs and mud lol. I did start posting my photos on flickr a while (years) ago but was never too happy with most. This one is my favorite and was the result of my first dabbling into photoshop at the time.

When any of you become tilt shift addicts pls remember how dang cool it is and b429 linked it to ya and a cool guy from the drone forums showed me

 

In my flight vids I use alternate shots between tilt shift and regular shots to show contrast it's sick fun.

wow, i was never a fan of 24mm focal length but you made it work really really well. very impressive. especially the shots of people. i usually go for 35mm or 50mm for people and find 24mm too wide.

Thanks bud. Not sure what camera body you shoot with but the t2i Im using is a cropped sensor so it magnifies by a factor of 1.6. Therefore, Im effectively shooting at a focal length of about 38mm.

So if you are using a full frame camera body with a 35mm lens, thats actually almost the same as far as focal length is concerned. Thats actually why I chose the 24mm lens tbo.

Man i really want to like that nifty 50 but it just seems too close. The 40 might be doable tho. The 24 just seemed like such a good versitile lens. I wanted a bit of wide angle for landscape, a nice portrait lens with crisp color rendition, very quick AF, and its quiet as hell for video.

 

It may not be L glass but it was only $150. And thats expensive enough for me right now.

50mm is great for outdoor portraits where you have room to move. Hell, I sometimes take my 85mm f1.8 out as my walk around lens. Really forces you to be creative with your photos =P. The bokeh is a lot nicer at longer focal distance.


oooo, fyi, B & H has the Sigma 17-50mm f2.8 for $300 right now. Hell of a deal. But 3rd party. If I didn't already have a 24-120mm f4 as my main lens, I would get the Sigma.

I totally get that about the 50 being good outdoors now that you mention it. Same about the bokeh. I think the next lens I want to get will be the canon 18-135, but it will probably be a while before that happens.

 

I do have 1 other lens, but not many good pictures worth sharing yet. Mostly because I dont own a tripod and its not the easiest lens to use. Its an old minolta zoom lens that my father in law gave me. Its actually a cool story. He bought it to bring woth his 35mm film camera when he went to the 72 Olympics in Germany. I had to find an adapter for it to mount to the canon body but it works. I have 1 semi good picture from that Red Sox game...ill see if I can find it.
