| p.35 #8 · Anyone up/in for a "Canon Spring 2013" Thread??? |
Alright, here's some from my trip to the Land of Seven Rivers (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zhetysu). Our team (eleven persons, down from initial twelve) was traversing southeastern Kazakhstan's primary natural attractions. Many were photographing, myself included. My gear included the 3 zooms (16-35, 24-85, 70-200/2.8 IS) and 2 cameras (1D Mark II N, 1D Mark III) but I got to try almost all other lenses we had on our hands (70-300 IS, 70-200/2.8 IS II, Sigma 10-20 even - turned out a decent APS-H hack in the end). All 6 cameras the 5 of us had (the rest had P&S cameras or nothing) were Canons, ironically.
I'm not very happy with how the photos turned out - due to neither the landscapes being any inferior to what we expected, nor any shortcomings of gear, but because of myself being not up to the task, and frankly preoccupied with other subject matter at the time, which I'll never forgive myself for.
I'll be posting photos in small batches in order not to congest this thread. Here's the first half dozen:
Mock fortress used as a movie set.
Canon poster girls in action
The Singing Dune, just before the clouds covered everything and we got a wonderful rain/duststorm at once.
The colored mountains at Aktau.
(All pics with 1D Mark III. The fourth is definitely the 24-85, as it's clearly shot with a polarizer, but I only have that one in 67mm size. The rest is probably 16-35.
