I would strongly think about the 14mm or the new 16-35 over the 14-24, if I keep my D80 for a while.

No 12-24 interest, or are you trying to keep all your lens purchases FX compatible?

cheers,

Some great great links in here!

14-24 is drool worthy for sure, with having to get the Nik to EOS adapter. I just hate how there is no good way to install filters aside from the new solution I saw from Lee filters. Of course you need all new filters now ;).

One of my most inspiring links is a friend I went to school with, Lisa Wiltse. She knew what she wanted do and has made it her life. She makes some fantastic images.

Any one of you guys who knows the difference between their elbow and their ass could get those exact same results... There is nothing about what he has done there that is mysterious, or even difficult lol... It's a simple case of balancing strobe and ambient, with the right color temp. Pretty much, that's Lighting 101. Just sayin'

Nate, it is not just the result it is also the ease in which he accomplishes the result. It seems like just second nature to him.

I might be able to get those results but I will have to shoot, chimp, shoot, chimp, shoot, chimp, curse, shoot, curse, curse, curse...and we are out of light...FUUUU...

Ummmm, did you not see him looking at his histogram and adjusting? Watch closer. It's not like he showed up and nailed the exposure with the first frame. The video is only showing the final portion of the shoot... That term is fucking retarded by the way, everyone chimps.

I did see that and in other videos he does the same thing but he gets where he wants to be pretty quickly.

My point was that it would take me too long and I would miss the light. The sun seems to set so quickly when you are taking pictures at sunset.

Which is why you pre-light. Wanna know how many cars I've shot at "magic hour" aka "magic 5 minutes?" ;\)

BTW I'm not saying the man doesn't have some sort of skills. The look is nice, simple and effective. I just think 'yall niggas is nutriding a bit too hard, considering what he is doing is not actually very difficult, nor is it beyond the realm of what 75% of CSI:P&P is capable of creating.

Neither is Ansel Adams's work. Just get to Yosemite and wait for the light. But somehow he did it and we don't.

Well Nate, maybe if your webpage/blog had tutorials or videos of your pre-lighting for the magic 5 minute shoots we could swing from your nuts too. Most of your blog seems focused on the post prossing and not the lighting setup. For more nut swingage you should write some books on the subject of lighting.

Who said I want nutswingers I'm just saying... There are a lot of interesting people shooters out there, McNalley is not one of them no me.

And Scoot... I know you didn't just put Ansel Adams on the same level as J.M.

No, Ansel's images are iconic and McNally's just aren't. But McNally understands light at least as well and does a good job of trying to share that knowledge.

Been listening to The Candid Frame podcasts all day long and finally got around to David Hobby's.

http://thecandidframe.blogspot.com/2010/08/candid-frame-98-david-strobist-hobby.html

An outstanding interview, and not at all about technical lighting stuff but philosophical stuff about surviving outside the traditional newspaper/magazine world that's dying off.
