    My first baby shoot!...C&C PLEASE!

    I was having the same problem just couldnt get the stuff to stick and I found that reading and writing down the main points and taking notes has helped me remember a lot. And even a few cheat sheets in the camera bag just to have incase!

    I discovered HDR the other night,

    HDR can look awesome when done correctly, but this one just looks way way way too over-done! As for the 2nd one, it just doesnt peak my interest at all

    The Dam for c&c

    to me there just isnt anything interesting going on in the picture. Maybe try focusing more on the water coming over the damn instead of the pond below

    autocross photos for C&C

    I wanted some opinions on these photos please. I rented a new lens to play with for 2 weeks, and am taking it to a national even next weekend. So any tips would be nice. Unfortunately a few of the photos had cones in them because it was pouring and I was hiding under the tent and couldnt really...

    Lens help

    yeah I had a monopod but it magically disappeared a few months back :er: so I may get a new one or may hold off. Not sure yet. On another note: anyone know a good way to cover a mic so you dont have wind noise but can still get car noises? We have my crappy point and shoot that we attach to...

    Lens help

    my only other thought is weight. I will have a tripod, but I will be out there with a camera for around 11 hours. for 2 or 3 days... I am also looking at the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4.0. But not sure. I know I can usually get some decent motion shots with my kit lens that I have now. And I do...

    Lens help

    Thanks! The Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS is mostly what I am leaning towards renting at least for the national events this year. Would I be totally hurting to get the first one instead of the 2nd one?

    Lens help

    Thanks I've never noticed the camera being slow, but the sports I do are more about car control than speed so that may be it. Kind of hoping to find a lens that would be good for everything, not just sports if possible. Because even though I do sell a few pictures, with it being an all amateur...

    thank you. I am just mostly trying to learn my camera, and like I said I am a complete noob! And trying to stop using autofocus! And yeah the building was taken with my crappy point and shoot. But it was all I had at the moment.

    Lens help

    Budget I havent really decided yet. The beau is going in with me so I am not as worried. And honestly if I find a lens I love I will save the money and get it. But I'd like to say under $1500, although that can change. Most of the time I end up on the track for local shots, but at national...
