Patricia & Evans Wedding

Turned out to be a realy nice day, started out a little rainy. Had to move in side the Church The lighting was Bad Had to use old fathful 580 II The 5D Mark II was realy good in this arena I useed my 450D as well all turned out well. Would have liked to have a little more control over the setting. As like 4 Photographers showed up t shoot the wedding. I normaly ask $1500.00 to $6000.00 Per wedding This one I did for free as it was my Neice that was getting married. By the way I think she got a keeper. Most of the setups were wrong shot on the wrong wall as a backgroung. But all in all I think I got a few good shots that will help them remember there special day. Had fun using some of my equipment. I may ask them to pose in the studio when they return from Jameca Man. Would like to do some shots my way the best way. I guess I could have taken the studio with it is some what portable. All in all had a great day. Oh yes none of the photos are retouched or procesed they are streight out of the camera.

If it turns out not to be fun don’t do it!


Used New Studio Euipment

Check out The title is (Nicole 2010) I used my 5D Mark II and my Canon 450D. Had a lot of fun shooting in my studio Realy like the hand painted backgrounds. I am using an infared flash triger so far so good.

Chance meeting at Havana River front

   Just ran in to the most wonderful people at the Havana, Illinois River front Park. Well you guessed it cameras were involved and I got to show off my 5D Mark II. One couple is from California and the other from Rodchester, Illinois. I was so glad to meet and greet at the park. I took some photos and they are posted on my photo site. How cool is this My night was made. Wish all people were this nice.

Midwest Dragway Havana, Il

Just attended another Great Drag race st Midwest Dragway Here in Havana. Got some great shots. That are posted on<> The day was just wonderful not to hot not to cold and I love the smell of top fuel. They had Bikes Rails Funny cars Pro Stock all so cool. The 5D Mark II is working very well I am using  The 580 EX II Flash to suplement light. I realy like this flash on ETTL set it and forget it No brainer I need a lot of that. I also picked up the CP-E4 battery paek for the flash Havent used it much yet it does seam to recycle a little faster.

I am wanting to get the Canon 70 to 200mm Lens f2.8 “L” Series I think this will be a good addition to My others.

Pleas have fun above all  if its not fun don’t do it.
