    "It's about Quality, not Quantity"


    I'll suggest posting only one photo a day, though.

    This photo is among my favorite of my portraiture.
    It is SOOC (straight out of camera) minus some cropping as well as the applied text.

    I used my Canon EOS 50D (shot on manual) with a Canon 35-350mm f3.5-5.6 USM L lens with some minor strobist work from the right, eye level with the model.

    Just some edgey photoshoots, nothing too serious.

    I love the shots, the low fstops are pretty lovely.
    I believe I will break out my cheap-o 50mm f1.8 this friday for my shoot with the same girl from the RedBull photos


    I should mention these colors are all as they were in the sky at the moment I snapped the photo.
    This photo is purely SOOC, excluding the Text and some cropping

    If only I had the equipment for human photography... These are fantastic. That quality straight out of the camera is amazing.

    My P&S Canon S5 isn't very flattering to people. I'll stick to portraits of other animals for now. It's impossible to tell when you've got the spider's bad side. They're much more approving clients.

    Just an ole EOS 50D

    I'll repost this photo with a less distracting text - as a friend of mine suggested.

    This photo is SOOC minus cropping and text.

    I don't remember the details but I will tell you I used a Circular polarizer on darkest rotation.

    Hmm one comment on this photo...
    is that your light kit stand I see in the way right? ;p

    spider Arachnoprince Old Timer

    At the very bottom right?

    Hmmmmm, I suppose that light stand did get by my inspections. Nice spotting there!
    It's not a light kit, though. I do my photos ghetto style.
