    Happy Thursday everyone! Sorry for the delay this morning. Been caught up in finals and almost forgot. I'm finally back on the laptop, so I can post a photo or two this week. This photo is from a few weeks ago in Hilton Head, but I haven't posted it yet, so here it is. I hope everyone is having a good December so far; it has been unseasonably warm here. Let's see those photos!

  5. I'm continuing my experiments with my new EF 40mm f/2.8 and 5Dmk2. I thought I would try some close-up subjects. I'm getting the impression this is the best $150 I've ever spent on camera gear.

  9. Great shots - especially like the baby shot, Dean: really fantastically well controlled light.
    I am (I hope) recovering from tennis elbow at the moment, which restricts how much I can wave the 1Ds3 around. Here's another from my friends' band's video shoot. 1Ds3 with 85mm f1.8, ISO 640mm, 1/160s @ f2.5

  11. This is a shot I sold recently.
    I've been working on a series of farrier shots as "art" and although I've sold a few, this was my first big sale along with one other. Rather than just plough the takings into general income, my wife and I will be having a weekend away in Florence or Rome.

    'Silhouette In The Fog'
    It was very foggy this morning around these parts, so what does a photographer do when the fog has rolled in as thick as pea soup and the visibility is 1/16 of a mile or less? Go out and take photos, of course!
    00b6Jl-507202184.jpg
     
  33. We had a foggy morning here on Sunday and I had a chance to try to get some pictures. I'm still sorting through and processing but here's one from a local park.

  39. This shot ain`t perfect by any means, but I couldn't resist the tongue action. ;-)
    Besides, it was the first cheetah I'd ever seen (at the St. Lois Zoo on Oct. 26).
    Sorry I haven't been active this fall, but I just started a PhD program (in my early 50s) and, besides having no time, I didn't have decent photo editing software on my new laptop till recently.

  45. Great shots again this week. You guys and gals are inspiring.
    I especially like the Zion shots, Thom. I don't live very far from Zion, but I still haven't been there with a decent camera.
    The wind is usually howling in Maui, but it was strangely calm last weekend, which made it a good day for outdoor flower shots. And a bird. You guys seem to like birds....
