This image for a project with an incredible 12 year old gymist was a bit of a challenge.  Canon 5D mark III / 24-70L  Mulitple strobes and a couple hours of the crew sweeping.gym.jpg

Water Drop

 

From a challenge in a photography group to "freeze the action." Took me a bit to set up a rig to drop the water, then figure out how to capture it.

 

Canon 7d w/50mm 1.8 and 13mm extension tube. Flash on camera right, HSS 1/6400 @ F4, Iso 160. Countless missed shots, with 3 "keepers."

Re: Show Your Most Difficult Picture You Have Yet Taken

The difficulty was not in taking the shot, but in post rocessing to correct for the different light sources: street lights, flood lights, and neon, and minimizing the lens distortion. 

 

Subject: Sky City Tower, Auckland New Zealand. 

Camera: Canon 7D Mark II

Lens: Tamron 16 - 300mm

Settings: ISO 3200 / 16mm / f/3.5 / 1/25 second

Post processing: Lightroom / Photoshop (Alien Skin Exposure plugin).

I was watching this sparrow fly around, and i was patiently waiting for it to land.  It did right in the middle of a Thorn Bush.

Re: Show Your Most Difficult Picture You Have Yet Taken

I have 2 very different but also very challenging photos I'll add. First up is the Canadian Pacific's Holiday Train crossing a bridge about 40 minutes from home. It's an annual thing but the previous 2 years were too miserable to see it from where I wanted to try my shot. No idea how long it was but I was able to find the width of the bridge on line, and fortunately went mid afternoon to figure out what lens might work. I had guessed wrong thinking I'd need a telephoto zoom but quickly realized I needed WIDE. I also got lucky in that it was cold & by dark the swampy area I wanted to use had frozen over just enough to walk on. There was no way to practice until it came into sight & no way to work out settings in advance BUT it had to stop about 1/2 mile past the bridge or it wouldn't even be possible. As it crossed I tried a few changes to get my shutter speed up a bit & this is my best shot from the series. !D mark 4, Canon 35 F 1.4 L lens at f 1.6, ISO 6400, 1/13 second, hand held.

The second shot is from one of the first R/C events of the season & again is hand held using a 1D4, Canon 28-300 L IS, at 130 mm, f5.6, ISO 400 & 1/2000 shutter speed. Telemetry that was downloaded later shows the speed of the pass to be in the 420-440 KPH range and I couldn't back up much from the flight line so how the heck I kept in in my viewfinder is beyond me but this is 1 of a 7 shot burst with only 1 slightly soft image.
