Thank you for the info on that car ! Did you accomplish that rolling shot of the STI on a rig or was it handheld with a long shutter with some post?

So i did a lil post Nemo shooting....heres what i came up with
(taken w the 85 1.8)





Location is a small dirt access road next to a body of water...there were some birds swimming in a part that wasn't frozen. I look up and here came a huge bird over head and dive bombed the birds below...i quickly switched Lenses to the 70-200 + 1.7TC...shooting through the trees and this is what i got...


I tried to get more but i just couldn't focus properly through the woods, but i still feel pretty lucky to get this atleast! not a common sight in my area either!

How do you like the 85mm 1.8? I was thinking about trading my 50mm 1.4 for a 85mm just so i can get a little more reach.

so far so good...ive only taken about 50 pics with it and only of my car, come spring time when i get out to the track more and car shows that will really show some honest results. But i like it so far, its super sharp and i like the reach.

Sounds great. Do you know how the 50 1.4 stacks up against the 85mm 1.8 in regards to car portraiture?

I would keep your 50 and pick up an 85 if possible just for the fact that the 85 will get tight in some situations.

That's for the input. I have a 17-55mm f2.8 for general walk around. I wanted to use the primes for portraits so I am just torn between the 50 and the 85.

Part of it would depend on if you're using a full frame or crop sensor.

Crop sensor - 50mm = ~85mm.

I have the 60d so I believe it is x1.6 crop. I still feel that I require more reach than what the 50 can provide. For some reason I can't part with the 50mm. Sometimes I feel like I should trade it. Sometimes I don't.

Yup, 60D for me as well! I personally love the 50, but have also had my eye on an 85 as well. I'm considering grabbing one of the relatively inexpensive rokinon/samyang 85 1.4's to give it a shot. Only downside is that they're manual focus only.

My critiques are: Lots of distracting stuff in the background, the car is pointing out of the frame, and the car doesn't really seem like the subject of the photo.

I wish I could've taken the second picture with the fire truck parked the other way so the front end was on the left side of the car.

That's fine. I'm just saying.

This. One of the last things I saw in the photo was your car.

I didn't take any car pics after the snow storm. I did take a couple of my son testing a jump that I built. Don't get all bent out of shape because they aren't automotive, I just think they are funny.

85mm f/1.8 USM / ISO 100 / f/14 / 1/100s

Your son must've been having a lot of fun lol. looks like a lot of air.

but thanks for the c&c Inkman and Fl4tftw! i guess i just wanted more of a scenery view with the towers in the back and lost focus of going out to take pics of the car.
I'm trying to find a way to get up those dirt mountains...maybe it'll be a nice location for some pics.

I really want this lens but I keep putting it off since I have the 70-200 2.8 ii. I think I may try to pick up the 50 or 85 1.2 next.

How many of you guys edit pictures with a laptop? I find myself guessing if I need to adjust the exposure as we all know laptop screens have horrible viewing angles. Of course you could always try to get the perfect exposure while shooting, but I don't mind much if it's off a little bit in the camera as I can just fix it in post processing.

Although sometimes difficult, one can adjust the exposure based on the histogram. I usually reference both histogram and image at the same time to see how it is being affected.

Not all laptop screens are bad. And on adobe light room you can hit a key to show the under and over exposed portions if the picture. I believe it's "j". It will highlight blown out areas or areas that lost detail.
