Tag Archives: Canon 5D Mark III

In living color

I was able to get out and about some with my new 5D Mark III over the past couple of days. I did a lot of experimenting because I realized after my first outing that I had a learning curve to tackle. This full body portrait of Maggie, however, was a no-brainer.

And, because today is the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge, here’s a shot I took with the 5DM3 last week from the top of the Marin Headlands. (For more of my Golden Gate Bridge shots type “Golden Gate Bridge” in the search field in the column on the right, or check out my bridge set on Flickr.)

Walking the dogs

I decided I needed to give the 5DM3 a go during the commute home today. I ended up going all the way out to Fort Cronkhite on the Marin Headlands to get this photo. What I learned along the way is that a full frame sensor camera handles depth of field way differently than a crop sensor camera. Time to tame the beast.

Take a bow

I’m currently going through a major transition (all good!), so I’m wrapping stuff up and preparing to change coordinates. Also, I’ve got this brand new, monster of a camera but I’m ridiculously busy–aargh!… Lots of 5DM3 “Out and About” photos will be coming soon. In the meantime, another close-up of flora at the homestead from this past weekend.

Number 2000

In April 2010 I decided to give digital photography a go. I bought a Canon G11 and started shooting. When I got to the 1000th G11 shot, I posted it. Today’s photo is the 2000th taken with my T2i. After I get the much anticipated Canon 5D Mark III, I am hereby officially committing to post the 3000th shot from it. Stay tuned… ;^)

Old tractor close-up

The close-up is of an old tractor I found in a field next to a back road I sometimes take during my commute home from work.

Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm at 38mm. 1/250 second at f/11, ISO 200.
