    think these are all 85mm anyway

    interesting gig last night, nearly punched someone i know, because they were being a pratt
    i was photographing and he decided it would be hilarious to tip beer down the back of my pants, so i told him not to do it, and when he did it again, i squared up with him and told him that if he "ever did that again id break his *insert swearword here* nose" then barged him out of the way and carried on snapping. like for gods sake ive got £2k's worth of camera gear in my hand, that quite easily broken, i wouldnt slat beer at him while hes playing his keyboard on stage and no means no! anyway that was amusing but put me in a crap mood for the rest of the night!


    anyways heres some shots, tis a very nice lens :)

    the majority of them are black and white because ive been working them for a publication that wants them in black and white

    jamie

    manage attachments button doesnt appear to work, back in a sec!

    With mates like that, blah blah blah... :thumbsdow About a year ago when I changed jobs, I did some leaving shots using tripod and remote release....a so called 'mate' thought it was funny to kick the tripod.. :mad:
    We never kept in touch...especially after I told him he was very close to getting a large copper/hide mallet down his ******* throat....

    85mm looks cool, nice pics there.. :smashin:

    Think the server is playing up.

    I typed a reply in another thread and it fell into an internet wormhole.

    can't be *bothered* to type it all again.

    * insert alternate word :)

    20D does well at 1600 iso. From the exif - f1.8... 1/100th ... 1600 iso ... must have been pretty low light.

    yep hardly any at all, ive had to pull most of the raw files a few stops as well. tiny spotlights in the ceiling hence why on the 3rd picture the guitar headstock and his arm are blown out, cuz thats where the spotlight was, the rest was very very dull ambient lighting!

    Some nice shots there Mr Jones, especially when you consider the light, or lack of it. If you don't mind me saying the guy in first shot needs his face darkened a bit. :smashin: Hope you don't mind me doing some slight tweaks.

    Dont you think the AF is lightening on the 85 Jamie? My 50 1.4 is to. I've never used the 50 1.8. How does it compare for focusing in low light to the 85?

    Really like the first picture in the first lot you posted Jamie. Strangely enough, you can kind of see what genre of music they play (well, i think i can). Really nice pictures :smashin:
