montana creek in the rain yesterday.  'twas a wet shoot... i had no boots and spent 35 minutes in knee deep freezing water, which was actually refreshing.  don't really know this girl either.  fun day.  i'm not sure what's up with the gogo theme, but i'm not gonna complain.

   
this was "behind the scenes" while trying to figure things out, but i like how it turned out. kinda like... should i even bother wearing my boots anymore?

So while it's on the hot page......Any Portland peeps check it out. Well...I guess you don't have to live in Portland to enjoy (or buy a print if your mattress of cash is full) but my friend has been experimenting with wet plate and tinytype photography the past year or so. He just opened a studio in Portland where you can have a session done in said media.

Sorry if this comes off "spammy", I really don't intend for it to be that way, just trying to help a struggling friend out spread the word. Let me know and I'll take it down if ya'll want. Either way I think just looking at his website/tumbler/so on is fun....so....go take a look everyone!

http://www.uninstagram.com is probably the best place to start. From there you can find all of his work. While he might be a friend of mine, he really is one of my favorite photographers. Love his prospective, use of light, so on and so on....doesn't hurt that he is color blind. LOL

Seriously though, having a wet plate session done was one of the coolest things I have done in months, so If you ARE in Portland...check it out. He just made a 2000 Watt Flash for the thing, so now the possibilities are close to endless ( you no longer have to sit for 7 seconds or so without moving)

I wasn't joking when I said he was one of my favorite photographers right now LOL

True story though, he did digital for a long, long time, and just got sick of it. There was a really good quote a while back from a local paper along the lines of "I used to shoot 200 photos a day. Now I shoot two a day. When you are dealing with chemicals that could potentially kill you, and a camera that is over 100 years old, things slow down a bit". Keep in mind that is an awful quote though...haha.

He has many things for sale on his etsy sight too, btw....Wink

Looking at your pictures, you don't do much post processing do you? It looks very clean and simple. I love it. 

So are you a full time photographer or just do it on the side? 
I'm doing another wedding shoot in July, for a friend again, only they are going to pay for rental gear. I'm only repn a Canon 550D atm, with only a handful of lenses.

there is definitely post-work there for sure as with all professional photography, but it's done really well.. looks great.  less is more.. that's what I've been trying to work with for a while now and it's going well for me, hah.  I used to do more post than necessary.

anyway, definitely some very high quality images from Fj5.  good work!

Oh yer, there always is, but like you said. Little is more. I'm guessing it would be very small touches here and there But the pictures look very 'in camera' which is what i love. 

I seem to over process a lot at the moment. going through past photos I look and shake my head looking at them. Too much contrast, dramatic saturation etc etc. The things you do when you learn how to use something... LOL

they printed another shot of mine in the paper, front page of the outdoor section again.  I always seem to get large prints, haha.  stoked!  I really didn't think this was that awesome of a picture, as it was just a point and shoot that anyone could take, but hey, that's pretty cool either way.  I'm starting to build quite the photo-in-the-paper wall in my room, hah.

also, here are a couple eagle shots from the other day.  I dropped my car off to get the rear window displayed and was waiting for my ride, and noticed them sitting together in a tree across the street.  eagles are an everyday thing here, but I wanted to test the bigger zoom on my new powershot again.  not bad at all.

I don't think they are spectacular at all as far as photography goes, but it's a good view of them up close.  anyway, both bald eagles, and the first one is a juvenile while the other is an adult.

30 minutes to get out there but most of it is one-footing across the ridge, and then you hike the second half.  the nice thing about eaglecrest is, for the most part, it all funnels back toward the lift, so it's hard to get lost.  the west bowl either ends at a point where you walk out only 1 minute, or depending where you come out, it could be a couple minutes across the lake, but it's easy.

what's your screen resolution?  I can send you a larger image if you like

Sorry for the super delayed reply.  Yes, as Spenser pointed out, there's definitely post processing there.  All my pro work and blog posts go through basic editing... fix the contrast a bit, white balance, saturation, sharpness, certain tones.  Sometimes I experiment a bit with post HDR.  It's pretty fun, the trick is to minimize the "exaggeration" ... so yeah, I too like the "less is more" mentality.

Congrats on landing your next shoot!  You're on your way!!!  Yeah, I'm a "Full Time" photographer... but my winters tend to be quiet (most weddings spread from spring to fall) so I get a lot more time to snowboard, which is nice! LOL

The 550D (T2i) is a very worthy camera.  I have one too, I use it more for my video work.  For photos, I shoot Nikon (D3 x2, D700) and a bunch of Nikkor fast glass.  Used to shoot a lot of zooms but have fallen in love with shooting primes for weddings.  I definitely recommend investing in higher end glass!

Thanks man. I enjoy doing it for fun but could never do it as a job. It gets pretty stressful trying to get some shots. 
I lack confidence at the moment and my skills no where near the where it should be for wedding shoots. Haha. Mind you I'm only charging for the camera gear I'm hiring out for them so they get it dirt cheap. 

I love the 550D. Its been great to me but a friend recently upgraded to the 5DMIII and god does it take clean pictures. Everything just looks better on a Full frame. Haha. 
Slowly buying better lenses. Don't have much at the moment but the kit i got does the job for my own stuff. 
canon 10-22 ef-s
canon 40mm pankcake 
canon 50mm f1.4
canon 100mm macro IS

Really want better lenses, well more, like the 16-35mm, 70-200 etc Thinking about getting the 10mm sigma fisheye as a fun lens seeing as its cheap as well.  

And yer, i was planning to upgrade my camera to a full frame once i had a decent kit of lenses and use the 550D as a video.

What I used to shoot with:

Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II 
Canon EOS-1D Mark II
Canon EOS 50D + Phottix BP-40D
Canon EOS 3 + PB-E2
Canon EOS Elan 7e + BP-300
Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM 
Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM
Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 
Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM

Then I sold it all (except for the Elan 7e and 50 1.8) and switched to Nikon:
Nikon D3 (x2)
Nikon D700 + Phottix BP-D700
Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED
Nikon AF NIKKOR 35-70mm f/2.8D
Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G IF-ED VR
Nikon AF NIKKOR 24mm f/2.8D
Nikon AF NIKKOR 35mm f/2.0D
Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G
Nikon AF NIKKOR 85mm f/1.4D

Nowadays, for weddings I mainly shoot:
D3 + 35 2.0
D3 + 85 1.4
D700 + 14-24 2.8

Plus a handful of flash units.  For macro, I have Canon FD 100 4.0 that I mount with an adapter.  After a while, you really hone in on the system that works best for you.

Downgraded my 50 1.4 to the 1.8 and sold my 24 2.8, 35-70 2.8, and 70-200 2.8.  I really miss that Canon 85 1.2L sometimes!

Being an apprentice sucks. Shit wages... That's pretty much the lens kit i want to have in future with an addition of few more But i'd be very happy with a 5D mark II as the body. 

How do you find nikon over canon? 
Oh and why downgrade the 50mm 1.4 back to 1.8? Id it better for video? I have both for canon and I much prefer the 1.4 (Still photography). 

Haha, Totally agree spencer. And I love the 70-200, rented it out for my last shoot. pictures look amazing straight off the bat with it. LOL

I downgraded the 50 because I hardly ever used it.  Couldn't justify keeping the 1.4 but the 1.8 is so cheap so I got one just in case. :)

At the time I made the switch, Nikon's full frame high ISO performance was just so much better than Canon, thus my decision.  Plus I came across an amazing opportunity to pick up the majority of my Nikon gear at a sweet price.  I couldn't pass it up.  I somewhat regret my decision though because had I known I'd segway into video work, I could have just gone the 5d2 route and kept all my L glass.  Now I'm stuck with using both systems.  Took a little while for me to get used to the "backwards" controls. LOL

Yer that 50 1.8 is the easiest purchase I've ever made. No complaints for that price.

Well, when I made the switch to Nikon FF, the D700 and the D3 didn't have video capability.  Whereas I could have chosen to keep most of my L glass and just purchased a couple 5d2's instead.  Sadly, I can't afford to spend thousands on new FF video bodies for Nikon.

^ You mean cameras by Red?  Aren't they more for motion picture?  They look epic alright, so robust!  Don't know if I can afford those though.  You ever use one?  I hear the selling point is all the available add-ons.

No _ met some people at a party and conversation segue into photography/films and they were using Red. 

Anyhow, I wish I had your set up let alone the Reds.  I want to create shorts but really on the budget maybe with canons?

Hey FJ, i got a question if you don't mind. 

With most of your indoor wedding photography how do you go about lighting? 
like your pre-wedding shots etc. 
If only Queensland had snow...

So I finally got to use my ND 3.0 filter (10 stops) which i bought from EBay. Super cheap and I think it works great!!!

A few shots from the river and waterfall near Brisbane after 6 weeks of non-stop rain.

Naw, I don't think so, there are plenty of Sarmientos all over the world... very common Spanish and Filipino last name. :)

Hey man, I try to use ambient light for most of my indoor prep shots.  I try to get as much natural light through the windows as I can and shoot wide open with relatively high iso.  If that's just not an option, then I use external flashes and bounce off the ceiling with a diffuser.

Oh, and nice shots with the ND filter!

Rainy days in Brisbane city today. Tested out my new Genus ND fader. Looks like i picked up a dud one... As you fade it more and more, the polariser only effects the middle in a cross shape instead of darkening the whole scene... Going back to swap for another one once the long weekend is over. 

Probably my favourite one from today. Southbank waters beach, just out from the CBD. Not many people here on a rainy afternoon considering its holidays. 

Bit of romance, come for a swim. Smile

Under exposed on purpose, probably a bit too much but i like the dark, stormy feel.

Ahh sweet to hear about the ambient light, I plan to do the same as i suck sooooo much with flash photography, not that im a great photographer anyway... but... 
Have you used the 'Gary fong' flash domes at all? And what about umbrellas? waste of time/money? For that kind of shot anyway, i don't plan on doing any studio work. 

And thanks Smile I know that in the river one, the trees/shrubs are a bit out of focus because of the long exposure on a windy day but happy with the composition for once.

Regarding your suspected dud polarizer, I believe it just depends on your lens.  I think the polarizer cannot account for ultra wide perspectives due to the curvature of the lens.  So not all the light rays are travelling through the filter in the same direction as that "cross section" you mentioned.  Happened to me when I used a CPL on my old Tokina 12-24 on my old 10D.

I have a knock-off Gary Fong diffuser I got online from HK.  Works similarly and serves me well.  The light spreads quite nicely and if the ceilings are low, I remove the top cap.  YMMV.  As for umbrellas, no I don't bring those on wedding shoots, too much equipment.  I use umbrellas and softboxes for studio shoots only.

What you can try next time for your long exposures, if you wish to preserve some sharpness on a windy day, is to take a short exposure as well and layer the two images and play with the transparency.  I've never tried it but just thought of it now. Smile

@FJ yer you were right, it can't handle super wide at the darkest stop. Not much a a problem thou. Love the genus, No vignetting that I can see on it and images stay pretty sharp imo. 
Mmm, i plan to do what you mentioned up above with a different image and layer but i don't have photoshop just lightroom to play with. 
 
Love the above images. especially of the one of the Boyrfriend in orange. Looks Baws.
