B.C.'s Sunshine Coast

5D Mk II, full RAW, Rapid Fire shutter, AF servo, 195mm zoom L series lens, ISO 400, F 4.5, 1/6400 sec

Original photograph
I came across these two photos this evening and thought I would share them with you on my blog.  I was in the mood to post something other than portraits.

The first photo is a very cropped down picture from its original as you can see.  I used full RAW mode on my camera in anticipation of the major croppage I was going to have to perform.  Not bad considering how far away the bird was.  It was a good test of resolution on my 5d mk II's maiden voyage.

The second photo is a 1 second exposure of a waterfall on Goat Island on Powell lake.  I am not sure why I used ISO 200.  I must have forgot I could push the camera to a low ISO 50 and get an even longer exposure to soften the water.  Oh well.  For whatever reason, that was the exposure I took and it worked just fine.

Please let me know what you think or some of your experiences with similar photographs ;)

Performance Edge Olympic Lifting Clinic

This was the second time I have worked with Andre of Performance Edge Consulting.  Andre is a personal trainer and has been instructing Olympic lifting courses at PURE fitness in Red Deer.  This shoot brought me to the new PURE facility near downtown Red Deer.  It was a large spacious enviroment with an industrial feel that definitely said "crossfit".

Andre was looking to capture content for his website, multimedia advertising, and general archival purposes.....
