Studio photography is a long and very precise practice. A millimeter down, a centimeter to the side, and a slight adjustment to focus to get the perfect composition and flash angle. Usually untold hours can go into even the most simple looking of shots. Not only the photo but the subject mater has to be arranged just right before anything can be done.
heh...I dont have the patients for that...
So while my friends were all in the studio setting up shots I was standing there photographing the action. Here their teacher is checking the focus through the vertical view finder (which is now horizontal here) on my friends Mamiya RZ67 of the small cake scene down there on the table. After the shot was taken we scarfed the cake.
I was itching to get my hands on a dslr so I could try out my new lens on something that would give some results that I could examine closely, and I borrowed the schools Canon 10D which worked great with my lens. Even with the 1.6x multiplier which bumped my 17mm lens to 27mm, it still gave some neat perspectives with very nice colors and resolution. This also reminded me how much I miss digital.
