    Fall family photo for C&C

    This was shot late afternoon in natural light. The posing is natural, I didn't direct them in anyway so I'm not asking for critique in that area. I'm happy with the way it turned out after editing. Any comments on the strengths and/or weakness would be helpful. Thanks, Mitch Canon EOS 5D Mark...

    Rented the Tamron SP 150-600mm

    I currently use a Canon 100-400mm f/4.5 f/5.6 + Canon 1.4ex III so I can shoot 560mm @ f/8. I was excited to try the Tamron after seeing some of the photos posted here and on Flickr, 600mm @ f/6.3 sounds good compared to my setup. I was impressed when I pulled the lens from the box. My first...

    Houston Texas

    Recently traveled to Houston to visit for the holidays. I'm not a big fan of large metro areas, I'm more of a country, woods and dirt road guy. Anyway, traveled with a couple lenses and camera, no tripod so all my shots are handheld. Hope you enjoy these! Comments and critique are welcomed...
