Playing with the new camera

A few weeks ago I got my new camera in after quite a wait for it to be in stock. I even had to wait for two weeks for the extra battery to become available. I got a Canon 5D Mark II to go with my almost three year old original 5D. The 21.1 megapixels are a little taxing on the editing process, but i will put up with it for the extra data :)

I have shot two paying jobs with it so far and have really enjoyed it. I have two wedding in the next 5 weeks and the extra camera with different lenses attached will be so helpful. The images are probably no better than with the 5D, but the size and cropping options are incredible.

There is nothing special about these captures; they are just some fun testing of different lighting situations and processes. Hope you like something.

Engagement Shoot / Michael and Rebekah

I have been a little busy lately with multiple shoots and a lot of personal things to take care of, but here are few shots from Michael and Rebekah's engagement shoot. I have two weddings coming up in the next 6 or so weeks, and I just finished a portrait shoot yesterday. I will post some of those images when I can. The client bought the shoot as a gift and I must wait until after it is given so they don't accidentally see it.

BTW, I got my new camera a couple of weeks ago to supplement the arsenal. The new body is a Canon 5D Mark II. I used it this weekend on the job and just love the outcome. It's 21.1MP so my files have more than doubled in size. Lightroom coughed every now and then when doing extensive processing, even with a 4GB Ram Macbook Pro. It seems to be well worth the extra clock tics though.
