    Div. 3 NCAA Basketball Mens & Womens

    It was late and I had a lot of photo's to go through. I still think a few shots had a bit to much yellow hue and I didn't correct. All shots were with my 30D 1600 ISO f2.0 or f2.2 1/500 using 3400 Kelvin setting. This is my "Oh I wish..." shot. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 7. 8. More on my...

    Help. 30D AI Focus accuracy, its front focusing.

    Last night I was shooting my first basketball game in years. I was using my 30D 85mm f1.8. Shooting either ISO800 or 1600. Shooting between f/2.8 and f/4 at 1/250 or 1/320 I believe. Well when I went to proof (when I got home) the photo and even while I was test shooting (before the game) I...

    Need advice fast. 1D mark II

    I've got a deal worked out on another forum for a 1D Mark II. I would trade my 17-40 L and my 30D + cash for a 1D Mark II. What are people's thoughts? I'm really hoping for a jump in IQ over the 30D. I understand that they are both the same processor and same MP count. I also understand that...

    Help me improve these two pictures.

    Once again, I got an idea, had a good idea to replicate the liquid in the glass and I rushed it all. I should have tried to slow down and used different aperatures. I wanted to make the glass as sharp as possible all the way around. But this is just my thoughts. What would do to improve them...

    WTB: Canon 70-200mm F4L Non-IS

    Who's got one and willing to part with it? As long as the glass is perfect and the outside isn't beat up to bad, lets talk. I think I'll be in the market after the new year. Would like the bag and if you have the tripod mount, that would be nice as well. -JD-

    Sweet spot for 17-40 f4 L

    Maybe this isn't an appropriate question, but anyone know where the sweet spot is for the 17-40 f4L and shows the best performance. I read that almost any lens performs best 2 stops up from the bottom. That would be about f8 on this lens, correct? Given a scene with appropriate light, can anyone...

    "The Fish"

    After I purchased my new lens, I went down to Circle Center Mall in Indy to try and catch some shoppers... maybe some kids.... Forgot that Circle Center is not all that kid friendly. It was cold outside and we didn't get any shots of the people on the side walks. Here is my favorite shot. Seems...
