CALLING ALL PHOTOGRAPHERS!!!

Went to Berry College today before classes start and came away with some new keepers. I forced myself to stay on the Main Campus (mostly) and shoot some things that I haven't before.

Waterfall feature at Berry. Of all the times that I've visited Berry, I've never walked over and checked it out, let alone photograph it.

The more that I read about this, the more that I want to upgrade from my 7D. The Mark II hits shelves in November. Just listen to those FPS being rattle off.

Id like to post some but I don't have a fancy camera and even after running them through a program to enhance them, they look like 3 year old drawings compared to these haha

****, post away. A camera is only a small portion of it......the person behind the camera is a big piece. It's like going to a fancy restaurant and complimenting the chef by telling him/her that they must have an amazing oven. It's taken me a few years of practice and hard work, but i enjoy the **** out of it.

I haven't posted in here in a while, as I've been swamped with work, taking some classes, travel, etc. Since the pics I posted from Turkey, I've done a bunch (NC coast, NC mountains, USS North Carolina, and lots of artsy / strange things to help get used to shooting w/ remote flash triggers) & still need to go through some to catch up. Hopefully, I'll have more time & get a few things posted over here soon.

Here are a few from the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. My dad wanted to go as his birthday present a couple of months ago but wanted to wait until it cooled off. It was a really good day.

Left my ND filter in the car, but I was able to pull off the shot without it.

this is the kind of work I am now doing. I wish they would have put up my fun picture. but this one is good as well. My fun picture I threw the net around them and made them with the attitude look.

I started messing around with different lighting recently, so I'm curious... Did you have some big lights set up wide shining in toward the players? I'm just guessing based on the way the shadows from the net poles are hitting the bleachers in the back. Also, is that white reflection on the bleachers coming from your lights or the gym's lights?

So I did not have umbrellas. so I turned the lights (two at an angle. pointed at them in a X). I wish I would have turned my ISO down a little, just to darken the background a little.

These lights are just some cheap work impact lights. they are 200 watts. I own some ELC 500 elinchroms that are crazy awesome. I just haven't had time to play with them.

Here are a couple from the local fair last night. They wouldn't let me take a tripod in as it was deemed a tripping hazard, so they were all hand held and the exposures were around 2 seconds.

Thanks. I'm sure I looked awkward as **** taking them. It was a case of propping up against something if I could, tucking my arms in close to my chest, and taking a deep breath and holding it.

and my apologies if I blow up the next page.....been doing a ton of shooting the past week and I have plenty to share.

I did a workshop last week in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and came away with some shots that I'm really pleased with.

This was on the way home just outside of a small town.

These next 3 were at the Great Smoky Mountains Institute at Tremont. Beautiful area. The leaf and bolts were on a foot bridge at the end of a 5 or so mile gravel road.

Mookie, I saw the above series in your Flickr feed & I gotta say that I think these are some of my favorites. Great shots, man!

Thanks! I learned a good bit about Photoshop while on the workshop and applied some of the techniques to these and am pleased with the results.

I also shot the Wings Over North Georgia Air Show yesterday. Here are some of my favorites from it. I ended up filling 1, 16GB card and about 12GB of another. I figured out that shooting RAW at 8FPS for 6 hours eats up cards fast.
