Nice use of flash in the indoor pics. No blown out highlights. ISO 1000 looks clean, no noise (both luminance and color). Good poses.

Pic#2 has a very relaxed feel. His cheek pressed up.

I like the focus point on Pic#3. His nose...lol.

Nice capture in Pic4. He looks to be power sliding around the corner. I like how the dust and leaves are kicked up and frozen in place because of the fast shutter.

What is that in his mouth in pic #5 ??

nice use of continuous shooting in Pic #6 and the low angle shot is well appreciated

Hey Nathan. Thanks for all the comments =D For image 5, it's the communal tennis ball that he has in his mouth. Pretty nasty!!! Lots of mud on it =P

I'm going to practice more on lighting stuff. So hopefully in the next few months, you'll see other images =D

Is the crop factor weighed into the stated focal lengths of the above photos or not?

Mstic said...

Hey Nathan. No it's not. It will be 200mm + 1.6(200)

Actually, I believe the cropped for APS-C sensors is 1.6X, but the formula you wroteis either miscalculated or mistyped. At 200mm on Full frame = 200 x 1.6 => 360mm(cropped sensor)

But I know you had the right idea :-)

PS- I don't know who commented before me, but it appears to be Chinese, and all I can read is "SEX"...lol, which is in English.

Mstic said...

LOL, my mistake. Thanks though. I have no idea what they wrote, looks like spam to me =P

Anyways, where's your photoblog? I know you have a camera now =D

I don't have a photoblog. I haven't had much time to set one up. When that happens, I think I will merge pictures taken from my point and shoot and DSLR into one blog.

I ended up returning my Mark IV last year shortly after purchase during the 30 day return window at B+H. I basically had it for graduation, but that's all. Blame it on buyers remorse. It was an expensive camera that I didn't have the experience to use. Plus, I found it too big a camera to lug around, especially coming from a point-and-shoot. Anyway, over 6 grand was credited back to my bank account and I didn't even get charged a restock fee. I was happy. B+H return policy rocks!

I understand now that learning photography is a continuum - You can't jump from point-and-shoot to the newest and most expensive camera on the market and expect great results. There is the progression of skills that a photographer must learn with his camera, his/her creativity, his/her lenses, and understanding of light/optics before a professional camera can be purchased and fully utilized. So, long story short, I just made that jump too soon.

A few months later, my uncle gave me his old Rebel XT, which I currently have and have used for over a year now. It suits me well, its lightweight and it accepts EF mount lens which is great. Minor complaints, I wish it had Auto ISO in Aperture Priority mode and better ISO performance at 1600, but then again the camera was free and over 6 years old, so I can't complain too much. I am looking to upgrade to a 5D Mark III (whenever it comes out, 2012? 2013? who knows?) Money is kinda tight now. Any chance you are selling a 40D?
