I’m not entirely sure what I think of these. I wanted to like them but they are not quite what I wanted to capture. Still, I thought I could use a couple of new desktops around and these were there waiting in line so here they are. When I was shooting these, I was sticking my 5d down into the water, just above its surface and moving it up and down along with the waves to try to capture this sort of inside the wave thing but one of the times I was a bit off and the water jumped up on me suddenly and splashed into the camera getting it all wet. Because it was so unbelievably hot that day it dried off pretty quick after a couple of shakes and a few minutes time. Not the first time I have dunked a camera into water accidentally..

    The results you get with the 5D always amaze me, I don’t know what it is? Is it the camera? the full frame thing happening? do you use the 50mm f1.2 USM is it? I don’t know much about canon kit I’m more of a nikon guy but as I say the results you get with it are just brilliant.

    Hmm, its a little the full frame sensor(love), its a little the fancy 50mm lens on there all the time… a little the white balance the light in the moment, the exposure settings… little things that add up into what I get. Nikon has made some great lenses and film cameras but I have never been a big fan of their digital side, Canon has always excelled at that part of it in my eyes..

    Certainly the digital stuff I see, the stuff which really interests me all seems to be done on a 5D – maybe I should switch to Canon :D

    Your digital stuff I have always thought excellent.

It’s not fair to artists if you do not credit their work and link back to the original content creator. It is theft plain and simple and blogs that attempt to somehow be mysterious by not giving credit to the creators are simply hurting the artistic community as a whole. If you love it so much then please, support it! The artistic community on the Internet is based on trust. Without trust then what do we have? are you going to be one of the responsible users out there or will you be among the bottom feeders, stealing content and passing it off as your own to make a quick buck in ad sales.

Use your best judgement and we will get along just fine.
