New thread: Up to date and open for anyone to post.


"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.

Can't wait to see them Centipede! My photos are only decent right now

Thank you Sharpfang!I just use a Canon EOS 50D, for the first shot I used the 35-350mm lens and the second I went back to my basic 28-135mm

Here's a self portrait:
Used Canon EOS 50D, Pentax K Mount (manual focus) 28-70mm f2.8 (at 28mm and f4)
Shutter 1/40
ISO 100
Shot in manual at monochrome/red filter

I do have some photoshoots similar to what you are talking about coming up.
Just some edgey photoshoots, nothing too serious.


This is a photo from today - one of my favs from the set

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.

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.
