    Thanks. My favorite is the first lion shot. Here's the shot I took right before that, where he's watching over the females:

    Busy weekend for us in the flower shop. Took us (ten people), three hours to setup all the flowers/plants/green plant wall with lights and whatnot. Results were very nice though, nicer than anticipated. :toast:

    Thanks a lot of work went into all of that, hehe. I also remembered to bring my tripod this time, since we were in a hotel ballroom with that dim lighting. Was also using one of my more recent lens acquisitions for these, a "Vivitar Series 1 19-35mm f3.5-4.5" (which has been a lot of fun to use) on my Sony Alpha 300.

    I'm a sony shooter too! How do you like the new lens? I mostly stick to legacy Minolta lens' the only lens besides minolta is the kit lens I got with my A65 :toast:

    So far, I like it a lot. It has a minimum focal distance of just over a foot, and being such a wide angle, I can get shots I couldn't with my other lenses.

    So far, I have 3 Minolta lenses, a Sigma, Tokina and this Vivitar lens as well as the stock lens that came with my camera. All of which have been good to me so far, as well as each one being under $100 (one of the minta lenses was only like $30, lol).

    The event was a "Debutante Ball", done by a charity group nearby. We were the new replacement florist since their last one retired so we will be doing it again next year too.

    I went out tonight to look for the Comet Pan-STARRS and found it! Sorry about the quality but you can't see it naked eye yet.

    Remote release cable, and a sturdy tripod. That way you don't accidentally shake the camera while pressing the button.

    You can get away with not having a release cable if you use your 10 second timer instead and step away before it takes the photo that way you don't cause vibrations.

    Experiment and Enjoy! :toast:

    Don't worry I have a wireless remote, the sturdy tripod part not a 100%, its quality built very strong, but.. It all carbon fiber so it's super light weight. it does have a hook to add weights, gonna have to rig something together.

    I just hope it's not to windy, I live on one of the tallest place in my county avg wind is like 19mph+ and this time of the year near 28mph+ wind speed
