Testing! One, two, three

I am not much interested in writing about technique, but this time I will. But I will keep it short! Yesterday at the races I tested an interesting lens. Canon zoom f100-400, 4,5-5,6. But as I guess that you noted you couldn´t tell if it was sharp or not in those images. Well, this isn´t much better since these images are 72 dpi and small. But anyway, Hemingway… The type of image is totally different.

Test_MG_0935 Test_MG_0934Todays use are all handheld with IS at no 1. Yesterday I didn´t use Image Stabilsation, IS, at all.

I just went on a small walk close to our summerhouse since I think testcharts are SO boring. Useful of course but boring. I will happily let other people photograph those.

Test_MG_0946 Test_MG_0936I am not a birdwatcher but there they were. And I came so close. The camera is a EOS 1D Mk lV, so f 400 is really f 520. The close range i suberb! I like it very much and I think that if you are looking for this focal range this is a very good buy.

The race is on

Yesterday I made another attempt to cover a horserace at Täby Galopp. The weather was fine and the whole evening was great with many interesting horse events. Like barrel racing and shooting with a bow and arow from horseback. However I concentrated on the traditional races. Trying to capture the speed and color of the event. Easy, NO! Difficult to chose the right images that I think are the best. I´ll keep on experimenting, and I will see what will come out of it.

Well, I did it my way!

So what would life be without photographers and photography? Boring don´t you think?

Illusion

This is a picture of a picture from Huseby Slott ( castle ) from earlier this summer. Where the different images start, or end, is not really clear. But, why should it be? Go there if you are around. You will find more info through the link, however only in swedish. But I am sure that you get the picture.
