My girlfriend(s)



So today I completed my arsenal by picking up a 30d and a 100mm macro so now I really can't think of any equipment that I want to try out. I shot almost the whole wedding in Italy with my 5d because I busted a piece off off my Mark 2 while shooting the bride getting ready and so I gotta send it in but it was so fun shooting with a different camera and now I have a camera for just about every occasion. I'm super excited to shoot some with the macro because I've never used a macro before!

Ok...I also joined a secret program through United airlines that I found out about in Italy that allows me to take a passenger with me for FREE on all my flights! Can you believe that! I'm gonna test it out in the next couple of weeks and I'll let you guys know how it works!

DJ,

The 100 is sweet. We have it, and have been impressed in how great it is outside of macro mode also. I think you will love it.

Hi, I'm new to opensourcephoto and I think that it is the greatest thing ever!!! I looked up your website from reading the article in Professional photographer. I am so thankful that I saw that article. The work you do is so beautiful and breathtaking. I feel so blessed to know that there is a place where I can go and see such beautiful work from so many wonderful photographers. You guys are all awesome. When I look at the photos you create I feel as if I'm there apart of that moment. THANK YOU

Felix said...

Man, I wish I can have one of your girlfriends! ;)

Btw, how do you like your 85L, I was thinking of renting one out and try it and 'maybe' considering buying one :P

amynave said...

That's soooo awesome that United offers that:)

bylinephotos said...

does it onyl look like for the picture or you never use a lens hood?

Alison Bynum said...

oh man you are dating some hot girls! i bet you can do some fine editing with them!

Jasmine said...

Just so you know, DJ, I swing both ways...please duly note that the 5D will soon be my girlfriend.
;)

OpenSourcePhoto said...

Yea...no lens hoods for me...

and Felix the 85 is a cool lens and can get some sweet pics but I wouldn't put it ahead of the 70-200 or the 16-35 because those are the ones I use almost the whole wedding day.

OpenSourcePhoto said...

Jasmine - stay away from my 5d! Grrrrrrr

Chris Humphreys said...

DJ,

Take care of that 30D cause I'm assuming at some point I'm gonna buy it off you since I bought your 10D and your 20D from you. Just let me know whenver you're ready for me to come pick it up. :D

OpenSourcePhoto said...

Swing on by...LOL...just kidding...not quite yet.

J@KE said...

Just to let you know.... In the future I'll be getting a girlfriend. No. Seriously, one day it'll happen, and though she may share the same name as one of yours; she's TOTALLY mine. All mine!!!! Yours are pretty but mine is gonna just be........ "The One". You know, now that I think about it...... It's funny that her first name is Mark?!? Yah. It's wierd I know but I'll love her forever.

Careful with the Ameniti Club...

DJ - I'm assuming you are referring to the secret Ameniti Club for the "discerning traveler". As your personal travel advisor ;-), read the fine print... As a fellow regular of airport food, travel constipation, jetlag, getting lost in the rental car, and waking up trying to remember which hotel you are in...I did a little research into this program for the "discerning traveler". The first thing that turned me off was the requirement to purchase a "full-fare" ticket. Note that none of the fares United lists on their website when you do a search is a full-fare ticket, as those are crazy expensive. Here's a link you can read about some other fine print. Just want to make sure you don't waste your money.

And how do you carry your girlfriends around if you don't use neckstraps?

We aren't worried about your 'girlfriends' unless you start naming them.

"hey, can you go get Natalie? Oh, I mean the 5d."
