    Sunwayfoto L-Bracket for Canon 6DII ?

    Hi, I was wondering if any of you had got the Sunwayfoto L-Bracket for Canon 6DII but to use it with the “old” 6D ? It looks like it may be a little different because of the new screen on the mark II, adding some width at the base of the camera : Mark II : 144 x 111 x 75 mm Regular 6D : 145...

    Which lens to take with me: Samyang 14 or 24mm?

    Actually I'll be there for more than a month: hopefully it can go up to almost a year if everything goes well. I plan on moving around a lot and I'll do other things besides photography, like... working. Nope. I think landscape with a telephoto zoom are really interesting and can give very nice...

    Which lens to take with me: Samyang 14 or 24mm?

    Well they may not be too big, but they're not light either. I don't want to be carrying too much. The bag is limited to 7kg on the plane and I'll have other things to carry as well... The camera compartment isn't even big enough for the third lens. I don't want to be weighed down with all the gear.

    Which lens to take with me: Samyang 14 or 24mm?

    Doesn't seem to be compatible with full frame cameras like the 6D, but only with APS-C...

    Which lens to take with me: Samyang 14 or 24mm?

    Basically, the only reason I'm considering bringing the Samyang 24mm is because I think the MW looks much better with this than with a wide angle lens like the 14mm and I really fear that I'll be disappointed and will regret not having it with me...:icon_confused:

    Which lens to take with me: Samyang 14 or 24mm?

    Hi, So, I'm going to New Zealand in March next year to do a Working Holiday Visa, meaning that I intend to spend several months there and take the opportunity to photograph the night sky. I'll be going with my Canon 6D and 24-105mm, as well as my Canon 70-200 f/4. I'd like to take only one...

    24 Hours of Le Mans

    Well, well... This was my first time attending the 24 Hours of Le Mans after having attended the 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps several times. My brother had warned me: Le Mans is far from being the best track at which to shoot. There are less viewpoints and fences, fences, fences...

    What you're looking at?

    That was in 2013. I was going through some files today and came across this one that I had never processed. I tried B&W. I got really lucky with the shots I was able to take that day. That snow leopard is obviously not that happy with people looking at him and photographing him while resting on...

    Advice on shooting a friend's engagement session?

    I hear your guys. Okay. I think I'll send them the list of locations to see what they like best. This may sound stupid but I have a question regarding light (as I said, I have no experience in portrait photography): most of the locations I picked in the park would have the light behind me...

    Advice on shooting a friend's engagement session?

    Thank you for your advice. I think I'll definitely rent the 70-200 2.8, I can't wait to try it out. I'm still undecided yet for the 24-105 vs 24-70. I briefly mentioned it in my message: landscape and (motor)sport. How many locations within the park would you choose? There is so many different...

    Advice on shooting a friend's engagement session?

    Hi, A friend from college recently asked me if I was interested in being the photographer at her wedding. I told her that honestly I didn't have what it takes for the job as I have zero experience in portrait photography so I wouldn't want to ruin her day and I'm not comfortable with the...

    A Terrace With A View

    The Milky Way seen from the terrace of my parents's place. I'm happy they have recently moved away from the city. There are definitely some advantages of living outside of big cities and being able to see the night sky so clearly is one of them. There was a strong and cold wind that night but I...

    Different Perspectives

    I was going through photos from my 2011 trip to Washington DC for my travel website when I came across this picture taken at the World War II Memorial on the Mall. The opposition between this veteran at the bottom and this group of tourists photographing the place struck me. They don't look at...

    Photoshop over Lightroom for Milky Way shots?

    Thank you for taking the time to give your opinion on this. I'm thinking about getting PS that's why I'm asking.

    Photoshop over Lightroom for Milky Way shots?

    Hi, I see that a lot photographers use Photoshop to edit Milky Way shots. I'm wondering what are the advantages of Photoshop over Lightroom for editing Milky Way shots? Is it because of the different layers and masks? Should it be used as a complement to Lightroom?

    Neat! Those forms are really smooth, very interesting, very graphic.

    Some more Milky Way - Which do you prefer

    This. The composition is the best one. It may be a little too blueish for my taste though. Otherwise, nice shots!

    A Night Out

    I spent last night out with another photographer here in Alsace, France. It's not the darkest place there is but the Milky Way was well visible with naked eyes. I can't imagine what it must be in really dark places. We got lucky with the sky being clear just when we wanted. There were still some...
