Great set Mr. Terry. That second burnout shot is really cool with the smoke.

My neighbor ask me to take 3 headshots for her theater class at USM. I took about a 10 shots and picked my favorite 3. I need to definitely work on my posing skills. I'm used to shooting candids and was a little uncomfortable because I have never tried to instruct someone on how to stand, smile etc. The one shot I really love with her laughing has some motion blur because I was shooting at 160th and forgot to raise it at that split second. Any critique is welcome.

Harry, I'm probably not the one to give advice on posing, because like you, I don't do a lot (or any) model/studio type work. I do like the third one the best. On the first, the background is blending with her face and losing definition. On the second, the background is distracting. Sometimes its best to throw out the rule of thirds and I would have centered her a little more and then try to tone down the background a little. And thanks for the compliment, it was a fun day of work!

Nice headshots! For those curious about the Sigma 30mm f1.4 DX, heres a bunch from my recent Disney trip! Lol, I am not asking for critique lol, as this trip wasn't about photography but a Daddy Daughter trip and spending time together!

Kids' 16th BDay Disney Trip

We started the trip 8/24 with a stop at the Kennedy Space Center so I could show the kids where IT all happened. I showed them this beauty...which I saw blast off in 2010 during STS-132.

Hey Mr Terry, those are from Daisy14'sDH!

Daisy14'sDH, you're making me want another sigma 30. On our last trip I mainly took family shots also. I found it harder to take serious photos when I was chasing a 2YO.

Sorry guys! I was probably half asleep. I shouldn't try to catch up when I'm that tired. I have been at the racetracks almost non-stop. With our Nascar Chase weekend just ended, I'm trying to catch up on some sleep and at the same time catch up with the computer. Over the 5 day event I only got 15 hours sleep. With all the Nascar drama and weather delays it was crazy week!

Embarkation Day Disney Cruise Line 8/25/13

Sorry for the delay, so I left you outside the terminal on my last post.

So lets move on inside the terminal and onto the deck outside beside the ship:

Here's the entrance to the ship:

Here we are about 10 minutes before boarding the ship:

Nice images! It looks like you had a great time. I'm so jealous because we have no plans, at this time, for a return trip to a Disney property. This is the first time in 12 years where we have no Disney vacation plans in the works! That's sad. I think I will just start planning one to see if I can make it work!

Kyle, those are awesome. Keep posting! We're headed back on February 27th during our Mardi Gras holidays.


What do yall think if the new K-3? It looks really promising even if its not FF. I wonder how the noise will be compared to the K-5.

I am going to have wait to see the K-3. I have heard two versions of which sensor it supposedly has. One says its the Sony 24mp that's in the A77 and the other is that's its a new Sony 24mp. The A77 version did not handle higher ISO's as well as the 16mp used in the K-5. If it has improved noise levels at higher ISO's that would be of interest. Also, I have heard that it may have a new AF system. That is also something I could be interested in. I want to see some real world examples. Besides, for what I do right now my two K5's seem to work well. Also the cost will be a factor. Because I carry two cameras most of the time, I like to have two with the same controls. Prior to the purchase of the second K-5, I can't count the number of times I was shooting and couldn't get the camera to work the way I wanted and then realized I had my K10D in my hand. It was frustrating. I just can't wait for the announcement so we can end all the speculation of what it is. However, then the naysayers will be complaining about what it isn't! I don't think anyone is ever completely happy except maybe me. I'm just happy to be out there shooting with whatever I have available. That could be a K5, K10D or K30.
