Communication is key.
Minor fixing/editing is generally fine. If you take a broken tooth and fix it, a missing tooth and add it, a gap and fix it; you are creating a different image and friends and family will know it's not genuine. You can "fix" things without altering their appearance...
I love smoking, it's very healthy for me. Mentally healthy.
no macro, I was using 100-400mm lens at 400mm. still had to crop in a bit.
Here is another one I got the next day.
same shot, closer crop that I liked for some reason...
Hey, my first shots were with my 17-50 f/2.8 portrait lens....and I got about a foot and a half away. Missed focus a bit 'cause I was holding the camera out in front of me like a little *****. so yeah, I'll take "chicken" with the 400 lolol
for 3 and 4 I wish the sun had not ducked behind the clouds...had to lower my shutter speed to 1/200 instead of 1/600 on the fly to get the shot. stupid blur on his front arms and wings. Oh well, it's not like they are going anywhere so when it's sunny out I can get more. lol
Been watching hornets build a nest on the house lately, so I got some shots of them today since I got my buddys 100-400mm lens this weekend.
Here is the nest. I started watching when it was the size of a tennis ball, now it's about a bit larger than a volley ball. Kinda neat watching them work.
it was in Bangor, ME They are in Biddeford, ME august 3rd, I know one of the fighters that will be fighting that day, so he is going to work on getting me ringside for shooting. The pros didnt use guards, just the amateur bouts.
Didn't have great seats..but got what I could. Fun stuff.
women fighters are awesome...and brutal. lol
Whole set in a facebook album if you care to peruse..... https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.351801268283738.1073741870.183384688458731&type=1
There is always ass out during the shows...lol. It was a re-shoot. Before I started hanging with them and shooting for them, they did a contest for Nickelback, and had to put a sexy ass on stage. The person did a poor job with the photo, so even though the contest was over, they wanted me...
funny you play on the words...'cause in another shot, I had cropped it oddly where it said "sons of ana" and was right on her toosh...so first thing popped in my mind was "sons of anal" so yeah...that one didn't make the cut. lolz
