    First Senior Portraits.... cc welcome

    I know I'm coming in a little late, but I've learned that teenage girls (not boys) do SOOO much better with a friend around. They relax, get a little giggley, etc. The friend also comes in handy for hair and make-up touch ups. Boys like a secluded place where nobody can see what's going on ;)

    Ice hockey HELP

    I'll post some shots after the weekend. Thanks so much for the advice, I've done ok in the past, but I know I can do better. I'm used to shooting thru glass, I look for a spot that's not too marked up (usually in the corners). At this level, I wouldn't ask to get onto the bench or penalty box...

    Ice hockey HELP

    Great! I know how to set a custom WB, but, like i said, I thought I had to use the ice. I'll pick up a card, and try that for the weekend. Again, my question, if the lighting is poor, will I loose anything going for an ISO 3200? Can I change my shutter speed in AV?, or trust the camera

    Ice hockey HELP

    CNCO, I purchased the 70-200 because of hockey. I couldn't imagine using anything else. (plus, now I use it for almost everything else) Ice Hockey is very difficult when you add in the horrible lighting, white background, and fast motion. Plus, you usually have to shoot thru marked up glass...

    the season has begun! And I have been taking portraits all summer. Went to a game last night at a rink with possibly the worst lighting I have ever experienced. And WOW, these guys are fast!!! Using a 7D (new) with 70-200 2.8 IS. I was late, so didn't get a chance to WB the ice so, my...

    Aperture setting

    jumping into this thread... can I use my 50mm 1.4 for shooting a larger group (7-12), if I set to f/4.5, 5.6? If I have enough room to get everyone together, I thought the 50 would work.

    advice needed!! Big Family shoot this weekend

    I have to find out how many little ones they have. If there are less than 8-10, I could use the big lens or the 50? otherwise, ill rent a wide lens. I was also thinking when they started getting restless, how bout a big Peek-a-boo from everyone? I think the kids are all under 8

    advice needed!! Big Family shoot this weekend

    I've been asked to photograph a baptism party this weekend. Not the ceremony, just the party after. Outside, hot and sunny, lots of small kids, and three month old star princess. The family asked if I could get some group shots of the children (in town for the baptism) they don't get them all...

    First time Senior pics C&C Please!!

    My first attempt at senior photos. My subject was not the most willing, so they're a little rushed (I promised him only 15 min) I used the creative mode (P) so I wouldn't have to make alot of adjustments while shooting. I think I should have used a shallower DOF on a couple. I have a very...

    white balance

    I recentely purchased the Canon 7D. When I shoot hockey games, I've always bumped up my exposure +1. My old camera didn't have white balance setting (or if it did, I didn't know how to set it) Now that I can set the white balance on the ice, should I still increase the exposure? (70-200...

    b & w noob question

    what is the end result difference if you shoot in b&w, or convert to b&w in PP? I love the contrast of b&w shots, but obviously leaves options open to shoot in color then convert choice photos to b&w

    Am I getting in over my head??

    that doesn't bode well for me though. You should see how nice my golf equipment is, and I still can't play that stupid game!
