A Canon rep told me the 24-105 is for video while the 24-70 f/2.8 is for stills. The 24-105 has IS so you can carry it while filming.December 5, 2013 at 10:17 am #15560SharraParticipant
I shoot Nikon, so I can’t speak for the Canon 24-105 other than to say I see a lot of them on the local online auction boards. If the lens is intended for video, it stands to reason that the sellers are more interested in stills with their 5D IIIs and they feel the 24-105 isn’t up to the job.December 5, 2013 at 2:13 pm #15563FauxFightersParticipant
Another faux bites the dust! This one came to my attention earlier this week via social networking. Saw a picture, checked her gallery out and it was all over the place featuring the usual suspects of blurry shots, out of focus subjects, improper lighting and more. Here are a few random selections:
Not sure why she went with the hunched look for this girl. Very unflattering. Oh and love how she tried to correct her dutch angle and ended up with grey by the subjects leg on the lower right which she did not fix.
Auto white balance fail. Also love that background for a wedding bridal shoot.
Her “studio” setup has several glaring problem in my opinion. First, she has apparently never learned that you should roll up backdrops for storage, not fold them. Secondly, why is she using CFL bulbs (which I understand are cheaper and easier to newbies as they don’t require triggering) for the light source on stands with shoot through umbrellas that are setup like reflectors? And does she want them to fall over? That is the only thing that makes sense as to why she would put the stand legs out just barely far enough to get the base off the ground, rather than extending them fully.
Noisy, blurry, subject soft, dutch angle, wrinkly backdrop, etc.
Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t think its FBs fault this shot it super blown out.
Looks like the poor child has maggots coming out of her nose. Maybe she is physically ill at the quality of the photos being taken.
So my inspiration for this shot was I wanted to make her look like an undead tranny.
There is so much more but you can check it out on your own here:
Unfortunately per her last post, the reality of being a business person and not just a photographer has gotten to her and she just posted a couple weeks ago that she was shutting down her photography business. I guess it was too tough trying to actually make money while giving away photoshoots for likes. Oh and not knowing how to use your camera probably does not help. Oh well, One Memory Closer is now being renamed One Less Fauxtog.December 5, 2013 at 5:10 pm #15564nesgranParticipant
The 24-105 is indeed a great video lens. The reason it comes up so often is that for a long time you could buy the 5DII kit and later the 5DIII kit, sell off the lens and save a few bucks compared to buying the body only. Before the tamron and new canon 24-70 came out it had a reason for existance, now not so much.December 5, 2013 at 9:59 pm #15566Yikes2013ParticipantDecember 5, 2013 at 10:02 pm #15567Yikes2013Participant

I haven’t been on these boards in awhile because I’ve been on this Facebook group called Newbie Professional Photographers and it’s much, much brutal than these forums and site, and entertaining as well. Anyway, they were bringing up this girl whose photography is really, really awful. On top of that, she’s just pure trash. She cusses on her business page, calls black people the N-word, and prides herself in starting fights. Anyway, here is the link.
This is so unsafe, I’m surprised her neck hasn’t snapped. Many people on that FB group page are planning to submit this picture to the moderators.
Wow, this is all wrong on all levels. She’s trying to be sexy in a very muddy and dirty looking bed of water (lake or river, I’m not sure). And her idea of boudoir is using a stripper pole.
I guess people hate her so much that a person from Canada made the blog about her (and she’s from North Carolina)December 9, 2013 at 11:15 pm #15664sethParticipant
I’m speechless.December 10, 2013 at 12:17 am #15667BillParticipant
I know a girl that kind of fits that category. She is sort of a cousin of mine, very distant and by marriage, so in reality, probably not actually related at all, but anyway.
She is not a bad looking girl, not great looking, but has the mouth that would make a sailor and truck driver blush. The reason I bring up her looks is that she is much better looking until she opens her mouth and the assemblance of words come out.
She recently started up a new business, thankfully not a photography business. She will drop F-bombs, N-bomb and any other type of ordinance on her facebook page. Now her business has a facebook page and she constantly links her private profile to her business page.
Talking to my mom, who is closer to her than I am, I kept warning her that she really needs to have some separation between the 2 pages, because some people have nothing but time to search things out like this with Krissy girl above.
There is nothing wrong with having a life and doing what you want to do, but you have to remember that you are a reflection of your business.
The thing is that she is no where near a professional. Anyone can have a bad day but lashing out at people especially online, just shows that you are not mature or professional enough to do this or any other business.
In the old days, you could probably get away with this action, since most people did not have much access to spread the word of their negative experience. Now with Yelp, Facebook blogs, Twitter and other sources, you have to be on your A game or suffer the backlash.December 10, 2013 at 2:58 am #15670nesgranParticipant
what an idiot. Does anyone remember amy’s baking company that was featured on the news even? Reminds me of thatDecember 10, 2013 at 5:20 am #15673emfParticipant
Sweet jesus, how horrendous.December 10, 2013 at 7:24 am #15674WilsonParticipant
I dont know whats worse, people actually paying her for that crap or her calling herself a professional photographer.
OR people actually trusting her to hang a baby like this. I hope she had a spotter or beanbag under it. Probably not.
The catch light in the people eyes look likes two light sources, I doubt its strobes or flashes.
Her props is over the top and she probably stay in automatic mode. Everything looks the same. Just bad bad badDecember 10, 2013 at 11:47 am #15675
