Canon 7D, Low-light

I just got my 7D and am comparing it to my 50D and getting ready to use it in a wedding tomorrow.

Here are some test shots. I ran the camera up to ISO3200 as I often shoot in dark reception halls and prefer little or no flash. I think they will come out pretty good.

RadioPopper Test

I am learning my Radio Popper protocol in prep for my weddings and senior sessions this summer. I'm firing a Canon 430 EX remotely using poppers and a 580 flash on my 50D.

Here's a series of images from about 20 feet to around 400 feet. The flash is firing nicely in bright daylight.

It's off camera right just in front of the subject.

I think I'm going to dig my Poppers. One more flash and transmitter for rimlighting and I'm set!

Dance Photography in Action

This weekend I continued my springtime Dance Photography activities. Here are some images of my studio and me at work.
We were shooting against a plain black background to highlight the dancer and the costume.

Working with a main and fill in front and 2 grids to the back for rimlighting, we were able to capture some great images of this dancer in mid-leap.
