    With pepsi cans! At first I liked the way the photos turned out, but then the more I look at them, the more I'm not sure I like them that much. Maybe one of them I like, that being #1, but not so much the others. Tell me what you think?

    (Note there was no editing what-so-ever ... except for the signature of course)

    2. I cropped the "chair" out of the first photo... and I still think I like the first one better...

    I like the last one. The tight crop really does it for me.

    Thanks. I am beginning to think that the tighter crop does it's justice too.

    In the background it looks like the cans are making the Pesi logo/symbol. While they are good pictures the lighting is not so good. Otherwise, I hope you enjoy the 50mm as I do!

    Nice shots... 50mm is one of my favorite lenses.

    Ok :) Thanks! Is there anything I can do to make the light better? I do realize I did take this in a darker area, so I spose I shouldn't do that again :lol:

    I am enjoying the 50mm thus far :)

    Thanks big boi! Haha. Funny name!

    If you have a flash, get that off the camera and invest with an umbrella. It really does bring new depth into photography!

    I have a Speedlite 430EX flash! I think I'd need some kind of remote trigger, tho?

    Yeah, I'm a bum and don't really know the logistics of flash and exposure quite yet so I bought the ETTL transmitter from Canon, it works so well and offers a range of creativity. The down-side is that it's expensive. You could however, buy a cord that plugs into your flash bracket on your camera and into your flash and I think that you'll have ETTL capibility, not sure though.

    Yeah, I knew they were quite expensive. I think that's an area I'll experiment with a little later, I'd rather buy more lenses :). I am sure there's a way to do it with a cord, too, hehe. And you're not the only bum here that doesn't know! haha
