For the last few days, I have had the opportunity to try out a Canon 5D Mk III.  I must say, this camera is pretty darn cool.  This first set of images are flowers from my sister's garden.  They were shot with natural light.  The files needed very little processing.  My birthday's coming up, if anyone wants to get me one of these . . . 

These last two images are flowers from my garden.  They were lit using three speedlights.

Warriors Over The Wasatch

Well, the much anticipated Warriors Over the Wasatch airshow has come and gone.  It's been three years since the last show.  My skills have improved greatly since the last show and I was really looking forward to this one.  Me and my favorite shooting buddy loaded up and headed out for the day.  While at the show, we ran into several photo friends, it's always a good time with these guys.  Unfortunately, the weather was anything but cooperative.  While it wasn't raining, the light was flat and boring.  The show was delayed at about noon because of the rain.  We waited it out for most of two hours before calling it quits and heading home.  Of course, not long after we got home, the weather cleared and they started flying again.  I should have headed back over, but I didn't.  The last three shots of the Thunderbirds were taken from my front yard.  I didn't come away with any really fantastic images, but it was still a fun day with Pete and they should be back again in two years.
