  I didn't take a picture...just watched.
Jeff didn't have to work as hard as I did. He just put is ff camera with his 14mm ulta WA set to a small aperture on the ground and took the picture. Somewhere in that huge field of view there was bound to be a composition.

The mundane answer was Beth's 3rd option. This 2nd shooting site of the day had wonderful layer content. I had been shooting wide-angle using my 24-70 lens on my full-frame camera. Then I shifted to my 100mm macro on a crop-sensor 50D to try to get some macro images of the very small wildflowers very low on the ground. This might have worked if I hadn't very strategically placed that one blade of grass exactly centered in front of my primary subject.

Have at it, though , Peter.

  Interesting.
There are so many buildings in NYC with floor-to-ceiling glass now. I'm amazed how many residents can be seen inside their homes, from the outside, public areas, clearly and easily---from a seated individual reading in a chair at their window, to say, a bather emerging naked from their tub on full display... all for instance, while you simply walk along the beautiful High Line Park.
Yet I'm guessing every one of those homes has drapes or blinds the owner could choose to close...

  There is a discussion on LinkedIn about a bill being introduced in either New Hampshire or Connecticut I think, about making it illegal to take a picture of someone without their permission. Regardless of being in a public setting.
And I wonder if this will make it into the argument about the bill specifically, or maybe what will come out of it independently, if anything.

5/22/2013 11:53:57 AM

  It doesn't sound like a case of Editorial work. If he is selling the photos (a book), should model's releases and compensation be expected?

  It wasn't editorial, just for art. Regarding a book, it may not require releases if the book is a collection of art pieces. And I stress may not, because I've read before that it doesn't require it.
In this instance, none of people in the photos had their faces visible. But my point was if this make it into the discussion of the bill being consider that want's to make it illegal to take photos of people without permission. Not talking about the use of the photos, the act of taking the picture.
Being at a state fair, street festival, just out on the street, etc... it's illegal to walk around with a camera, shooting the sites and activities.

  40 .  Which lenses to take to Ireland?
I will be traveleing to Ireland soon. I have a Canon 60D and Canon 10-22, 17-55, and 70-200 F4 lenses. I also have a 60mm macro and a set of extension tubes.
I would like to take just two lenses and I am wondering which lens, if any, I can leave home.

Christopher J. Budny

  Part of the answer depends on your shooting style and subject preferences - ie, is this to be primarily a landscape-shooting photography trip? Or will you be focusing more on old buildings, farm animals, close- or mid-range subjects, etc., rather than wide open vistas? Or perhaps just as likely, a little of the above?

Personally, I would rule out the macro lens, in your attempt to get down to just 2 lenses. (Unless say, flower or insect macros are simply your all-time favorite things to shoot, and so you intend to find lots of those subjects for that in Ireland.)

The 10-22 will be especially useful if you're going into a lot of old churches/chapels (particularly if you can use a tripod there) and if you loved shooting architecture. And it can make some really interesting outdoor landscape shots, anchoring something in the foreground of a huge, wide scene, for instance. (It is perhaps my all-time favorite lenses, and I'd definitely take it if I were taking this trip, based on my shooting interests.)

So then for me, it would come down to either the 17-55 or the 70-200... And whether I found myself, historically, needing a fair amount of reach in my personal trend of photo subject matter while on travel. (Also weight would factor in, if I was looking to pack light.) For me personally, when I've taken bigger zooms on my trips (200, or 300, or once, a 100-400) they ultimately always are my least-used focal lengths of the trips, which could tip me in favor of the 17-55. (Ugh! Ah, for a 24-105 to be on the list of candidate lenses!) Of course, "L" glass is lovely to use, always, and while I'd probably live more at the 70mm range if I took it, than the 200mm range, it could require rethinking some shots - to stand further away than you'd expect, to get everything you want in the scene...

Very tough call, if you truly must select just 2...! But I'd say drop the 60, take the 10-22, and deliberate a little more on the choice - see what your personal trend has been on past trips, for what & how you like to shoot, and what focal lengths tend to support your preferences.

5/13/2013 7:03:59 AM

  Just as Chris mentioned above, it all depends on the type of images you would like to shoot in your trip.

If you intend to travel by foot a lot during your Ireland trip, holding your camera body with a tripod too, then I would say, lugging a heavy lens like (70-200) might not be best of ideas. Canon's 10-22mm on the other hand is much lighter and is considered by many to be one of the finest non-L lenses that Canon manufactures. And Ireland is full of scenic beauty, so it just makes sense to go with it.

So my choices would be a 10-22 and a 17-55mm.

And good luck and happy shooting, Virginia.

UB.

5/13/2013 8:50:41 PM

  Thank you for your responses. I left on the trip early on the 13th and decided to take all three lenses - the 10-22, 17-55, and 70-200. Since I was on a bus tour, some photo opportunities were very rushed. I found I used the 10-22 and 17-55 almost exclusively and I had very little opportunity to use the 70-200. So these two lenses will be my choice on future trips of this nature. Thanks again for your insights.

  Glad it worked out - your experience matches my own, generally -- the 70-200 just wouldn't see a lot of use for me, while on travel.
But I have the 24-105, offering just a bit more reach than the 17-55 -- and the 24-105 lens goes on every trip I take (along with 10-22)!

5/23/2013 7:21:59 AM

  Yes, I would be happy to have a mid-range zoom lens with a little more reach. I might look at that one for the future.

For my trips I use the 24-70mm & 70-200mm for 80% and my 16-35mm (like the 10-22) for 20%. I shoot full frame 5D MkII but my last trip to Europe I used a 40D and the 10-22 made for some fantastic captures.
