More product shots with Canon 5D MKII, 24-70mm 2.8L

I was doing a Portrait Photo class hosted by Jigar in North Beach, SF. While walking around shooting the couple, I came upon this individual on the step of the Saints Peter and Paul Church right across from Washington Park. I like to say these two pictures are my favorite out of the 3 hours of shooting. Some of the pictures of the couples turned out great, but I don’t think it stirs the emotions I get from this picture. The worst part about it is I actually didn’t have any cash on me since I wasn’t expecting to spend any money on this shoot. Would easily love to give him some change.
Anyways, both picture shot with Canon 5D MKII and Canon 85mm 1.2L

So the wife is getting ready for Easter.  She baked some sugar cookies.  In the same session, I also shot her amazing new Fondant creation.  I know she worked really hard at it and it looks so pro!!

Shot with the same setup as the post below.

While waiting to shoot the wife’s new culinary creation, I had my light setup and started to shoot everything that was around me.  Here are a few interesting examples.

All shot with Canon 5D MKII w/ 24-70mm 2.8L

I used Dustin’s drawing paper as my seamless.  It’s not full white.  Brownish with spots.  Light setup with 4 color balanced 100 watt equivalent CFL Home Depot DIY special.  I could use more light since I did notice some light drop off.

Here is my attempt at some flower. The black background was the black side of my 5 in 1 ebay special reflector. I sandwiched it between the leaves and flowers. I had to do a few trial and error to get the correct exposure to show the black without the reflector wrinkl . No post processing was done. The picture came out exactly the way I wanted out of the camera.
Both pictures were shot in natural day light (nice cloudy day) with Canon 5D MKII and 24-70mm 2.8L since that’s the only lens I have that can semi do macro.

The wife’s been doing some baking so I decided to dabble in some product and macro shots. This is done on an DIY lightbox with one diffuser panel and off camera flash.

First Post!!

Starting my fist photo blog with some San Francisco downtown street photos.

After reading all the tips and buying all the latest gear, I figure it’s time to takes some real pictures with it.  This is also my toe in the water attempt at street photos.  What made this trip challenging was turning my wife’s downtown shopping trip while pushing a stroller into a photo walk trip.  I must say, having the stroller next to you does help distract people’s attention from you with the big dSLR and zoom lens.  Pretty much I look like a overzealous father with the latest toy taking photo of the kid.  Tip for those that want to venture into street photos, take your kid and stroller with you (or go borrow someone else kid, I’m sure relatives would be happy that you’re giving them free babysitting time).

I also wanted to try something different.  Every time the whole family packs to go out on an event (whether it’s just shopping or visiting the parks, zoo, etc.  I tend to pack every gear and lens I have.  Two big bags full of camera equipment just to go to the local mall.  I would then leave a bag in the car and carry the shoulder bag with as much equipment I can stuff in there.  Usually at least 2-3 lens, flash, etc…  I always had the fear that I might miss that shot I want if I don’t have the right lens.  The sad part about this entire thing is that this is all for an expensive hobby.  I’m not even getting paid to think all that much.  So, I had an epiphany Sunday morning while I was packing up all the bags again.  Why don’t I try with just one lens and and nothing else in the bag.  If I can’t get the picture I want with that lens, it’s not meant to be.  So…

All photos were taken with a Canon 16-35 2.8L MKII on a Canon 5D MKII.  Enjoy.
