will see if i can get a better shot tonight
Nice, ever shoot in HDR?
cant shoot directly in HDR, its an old EOS 30D, i just use the AEB settings -2-0-+2 then put them together in photo matrix, and tonemap the shit out of it
Ah, so that is what you did with this last shot then?
Very nice shot and touchup.
simply love those rodeo shots
Awesome shots Gary!
Still need to get a tripod so I can take better shots at night, spider one came a bit out of focus and a few spots in my sunset one were a bit out of focus as well, oh well.

Add me please.
the latest shots i have taken.
sony A450 all on a 28mm f2.
its blurry, but i really love it somehow
First half in my opinion are a tad dark.
Gary, what is your method for getting such crystal clear photos of fast-moving subjects? Also, what camera are you using? All of your shots always look absolutely brilliant.
Probably well-lit (because it's day time) and an uber-fast shutter speed.
Definitely a fast shutter, that's how the pictures are clear while they move around.
TY I adjusted my monitor two days ago and don't like how it's acting and am trying to get it back in specs!
Lots of luck! I use a large aperture or f/ stop on well lit days. The pictures taken at the Jr. Rodeo were pretty easy due to overcast which created very even lighting. Then I set the shutter to continuous and just let her rip while the action is taking place. The camera I use ATM is a Sony alpha 100. I like the alpha mounts because they use the same alpha mount as Minolta and Minolta len's are really good and affordable. I use Minolta lens' exculisively because I can't afford the Karl Zies lol
It was overcast but very bright which allowed for a reasonably fast shutter speed with a wide aperature due to the extremely even lighting. Most of the pictures were @ 1/400~ 1/500 of a sec.
The tricky part is actually keeping auto focus while the action is happening. Most people like a little blur in the photo to show movement like a prop on a plane in flight ect. But with decent lighting and setting up f/stop and ISO it was not to difficult.
Thank you all for the comments!
I'd say you saw a neat car Saturday.
Some really powerful shots in there Gary. Hope everyone was all right.
Nobody was hurt but a couple trailer houses had the roofs blown off so the town is trying to figure out how to get them under a roof.
Freaksavior is clubhouse specific now. To start off --
Foldable tabletop Lightbox with lights on sale at Yugster today for $28 + s&h:
Dang, I'd get one, but I don't have money to spend at the moment. (I already spent what I could, on pre-ordering Red Orchestra 2)
Anyway, here's a photo dump from the other weekend, lots of flowers from the wedding and then on the way home, I saw an awesome restored VW.
Taken with my Sony A300 and Minolta 50mm f/1.7 lens
