    Photos from a swim meet

    I hadn't even thought about auto-iso. That's a good idea. I'll try that for sure! Thanks!

    Photos from a swim meet

    I was shooting in shutter priority so the camera was picking the apeture. These are cropped, yes. I've been shooting in shutter priority for these events where the light tends to change (it was rainy, then sunny, then stormy outside). But maybe I should try it on manual and be willing to...

    Photos from a swim meet

    So these photos are my 4 year old swimming in her first divisional swim meet at Ga Tech. The light was horrible as it was an indoor pool. There were windows across the pool from the stands, so the swimmers are being lit from behind. I was shooting with a Canon 5D Mark II, 100-400 mm lens...

    What to take to Disney World

    So you guys inspired me to find my old point and shoot. I had forgotten how tiny it is compared to my DSLR's. I'm going to take it to and try it on the first day and see if I'm happy. It probably will work just fine. And I'll take my DSLR and other lenses for while we're at the resort...

    What to take to Disney World

    I completely forgot about the go pro! I think I'll take the Rebel with the 18-135 for the park. There are lockers you can put your stuff in as well that I can use if I need to take a break. And I did want to take the go Pro on a few of the rides. Thank you to everyone for your input...

    What to take to Disney World

    Absolutely. We're taking the double stroller, and expecting to spend about 6 hours each day in the park. The rest of the time will be relaxing, pool, or at the resort. My kids are 3 and 4 and we know from experience that 7 hours is about their limit. So we're planning for less than that...

    What to take to Disney World

    We're heading to Disney World in 9 days. I am having the hardest time deciding what to take with me. I have 2 camera bases to choose from. A Canon Rebel T4i and a Canon 5D (the classic). I have a few lenses I can choose from or I still have time to rent a lens. I have these lenses...

    Printing Photos

    I know this is an old thread, but I like to search before adding new questions. :-) Related question- does it make sense to pick one or two labs and do a sample print first before deciding on a lab to use? I had someone recommend WHCC and myphotopipe.com. And I now am looking at Nations...

    Can I get a critique on my portfolio?

    I'm late to the discussion. And I'm not a pro, but I'm hoping to get there. I look at your newest version and I don't as a client know what you want to do. Are you hoping to shoot for magazines? It doesn't look like portrait work. The guy in a suit looks like a magazine ad. If that's...

    Tips for taking a group photo

    So, we're having a family reunion in a couple of weeks. It's mainly getting everyone possible together for my grandparents who are in bad health. No clue if we'll get to do this again. We're going to take a family pic with everyone there. My current estimate is there will be 30 people...

    5D shutter is really slow

    I was thinking about resetting to factory settings. It was working when I got it and I took some great pictures with it in September. The problems have started has I've tried to move out of auto mode. I'll try resetting first and see what happens. Thanks for the suggestions.

    5D shutter is really slow

    yes, but it takes forever to take a picture, which means it's useless unless on a tripod. So I may be describing the problem incorrectly. To add to it, I was just playing with it. And it seems to be having an issue focusing. I tried it with my 85 mm and my 50 mm. Both lenses are working...

    5D shutter is really slow

    I looked at that as I was changing the settings. The data always matches what I set it although it doesn't seem to matter in the sounds or the pictures.

    5D shutter is really slow

    So, I typically shoot with a Rebel t4i. My MIL(awesome woman that she is) gave me one of her old EOS 5Ds. It seemed to be fine at first. But now, it's like there's one shutter speed. No matter what you set it at (I got out the manual to make sure I was actually setting it right), the...

    Starting website - suggestions?

    My website is just a crafting blog, not a photography site. However, I use GoDaddy for the domain and the hosting. I use wordpress for editing through GoDaddy. Wordpress is pretty easy to use and fairly intuitive. You don't really want to spend a ton of time learning how to do backend stuff...

    Newborn sessions... So much pee!

    I agree, I never bought them. I think they're hilarious. But some folks swear by them. But for certain poses where a diaper wouldn't work, they could be a little more discrete.

    Storing your images

    I transfer to the computer first. Then everything is backed up on my local server (yes my hubs is a tech guy). We have I think 13 TB of storage set up with failsafes to prevent loss of data if one drive fails. We also keep all music and our movies electronically here, thats why we have so...

    New here!

    I've got the t4i rebel and that same 18-135 lens. It's a nice walking around lens. I found it best in certain settings. I got great pictures outside on cloudy days and in the shade with it at first. I found it a bit lacking taking photos of the kids inside my house which is really low...
