    New Lens 17-40L few practice shots

    I am not a fan of the loading dock location but I never did one and was driving by it so figured I would take a quick stop and shoot. Also saw the tracks on the same drive to quiznos (best sandwiches evah). Also I have a Circular Polarizer that should be arriving for the giant 77mm size coming tomorrow.

    Wow! I really like the saturation of colors in these shots.

    77mm filters = $$. Kinda hard to accept, but a good reason to go to all L-glass! j/k

    Ben, I think you and Armin should have a shoot-out for car portraits. You both do stunning work.

    Peace,

    Hahaha YOU WERE THE CHOSEN ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Anyway, DAMN that's a sharp lens. I need to save up money and invest in the 17-55mm f/2.8 that I've been drooling over for some time now to replace my kit lens.

    If I could offer, don't let the equipment slow you down. A good friend of mine has shot tons of great images with an old Olympus 2 Meg camera.

    Composition is 90% of the image presentation, be it in the camera or through cropping on the computer. If you have a fixed lens or limited zoom range, get closer to your subject and fill the image area that you have to work with. Pay attention to lighting. Don't kill the chances of your camera making a good image by using it beyond it's limits to use the available light.

    Just shoot and play around till you start getting the results that YOU are happy with.

    There is a lead article on www.robgalbraith.com of a photog that shoots with nothing but P&S cameras, in a field where everyone is using $4 - 8,000 camera bodies, not including the $2 - 6,000 lenses . His work is highly praised, won awards in 2004 and is considered amongst the great. It ain't the equipment taking the image. It's the person. Go for it!

    Nice logo placement in the wallpaper Ben and really nice picture. I don't think I am a bad photographer but it's the colors and the sharpness that I cannot seem to replicate. I have taken some nice pictures with the 3mp Coolpix I bought my wife for Christmas but the N70 I have just doesn't do what I see come from some of you other gurus. I suppose I shouldn't compare my older 35mm with the new technology you guys are pimpin'. Anyway you guys inspire me to keep trying and someday I hope catch up to where you used to be

    Wow...awesome pics.

    Noob question...how do you guys get such great color saturation? My pics always seem "washed out" compared to the pics in threads like this.

    There a bunch of things that go into getting the nice saturation and sharpness. When you shoot RAW you get alot of nice sliders that can help you bring out detail/sharpness and saturation, but to tell you the truth the most important part of it is the light that you shoot in. Trying to bring out the same detail in bad light (like noon, no clouds, sun blaring) is NOT easy. So shoot in good light and process the image with adobe CS (2).
