    I love this lens, it will easily be one of my most used lens.
    Today i tired practicing panning/action shots, fill flash with my 580EXII, and just getting a feeling for the lens. I tired to keep the rule of thirds in mind but those pics turned up out of focus, so thats why these are mostly centered. Nothing great feel free to trash me, I can take it cuz I already think I suck HAHAHAHA.

    Cool snap shots. Try taking the lens out and shooting something worth looking at...

    I was playing with my dogs... normal daily stuff and I thought I'd practice shooting them playing and shit. Trying to learn more techniques and test the new lens too. :dunno: Any suggestions for subjects to shoot? Im kind of drawing a blank atm.

    I have no idea what you have around you. Try shooting some sports, racing, MX, whatever action you have.

    I hate when someone gets a nice lens like that ( I love mine) and posts some random snap shots of dogs or whatever.

    Get out and shoot something that shows off that lens!

    what body are you using?

    I think its custom function 4, #3 (on my xti), that allows you to use the * button to focus, then you can recompose your shots, then when you press the shutter it doesn't try to refocus. It may feel a little weird at first, but once you get used to it, you wont want it any other way

    Im using a 40D, I know what your talking but it seems like when I shift over its just a lil out of focus. Next time I may change the AF point, I dunno if thats the proper way to do it but it would work. I mean i could crop them, but these are pretty much untouched. A lil bump in contrast and some other lil adjustments and this is what i got. Also they were being shaded by the fence because it was early evening. The sleeping one she was laying on my GFs bum in a dark room :big grin:

    I just leave mine on the center point, if I have them all turned on, I get things in focus I don't want

    I own a stripclub..... and one of the girls Mia is coming back next week or the week after and wants me to take sexy and nude shots of her for promos. Here are some of us screwing off in the office.

    One of my waitresses loved her sturgis pics and wants some sexy and nude pics taken as well.

    believe me you dont! Dealing with stupid chicks all night that take their clothes off for money FTL! So much drama with chicks that strip. We have this one chick now whos kinda cute, kinda thick with fake tits. I swear shes the stupidest person on earth. I tell people she needs to get prego so she has at least one brain cell in her body. Then there is the constant fear of undercover cops and girls doing shit they shouldn't be doing in the lapdance booths... its great money but stressful at times. But when I take Mia's pics and Morgans pics I'll ask for OTAP's opinion and C&C.

    Try dealing with customers, employees that dont show up, fights between dancers, all while making sure no one is hooking. Its stressful but I handle it. My day job is much less stressful.... i have a small graphic design business that has been really busy lately. So now im working 10/11am to 2am everyday except sundays, sunday I clean house :(
