Planck's Place

Welcome. If you are here, then more than likely it means you were invited. What is a blog you say? Well, it's a type of website run a bit like a news letter. I can edit and add things as often as I like. So in a way it's a journal online. I created this just to share with our family and friends across the miles. Check back often and add comments when you feel so compelled. Most of the photos are of Emily, but if you look often enough, you will catch the occasional one of Tony and I.

Holy smokes Batman!

It's been a month since I last posted! WOW. So sorry guys, I have been busy to say the least. I didn't go back to my regular part time job, and have taken the jump and I've gone full-time photography. It's scary, but fantastic, and it's crazy at how much business I have gotten right off the bat (in the winter months too!), I am pretty happy about it all!

So here's a couple shots from today, with the new 70-200 2.8 IS USM lens.... (well, OK this one is a rental, but I may just have to buy this, no going back now!) The thing weighs a TON, but WOW, I'm in love already... My body is in for service to Canon, so I am using my backup 10D (Dad's camera, thanks Dad!) Pretty cool fun stuff, OK, so hope I will be around a bit more often now!

70-200 2.8 IS USM lens? Sha-weeet!

I've always wanted to play with one of those. Of course I have a nikon now so it would be their version, but still.

Seeing the pics of your daughter reminded me of something my Dad once said, that my two girls would live their entire lives with a blue spot in their vision from all the flashes they've endured.

Great shots. Give us more details on the lens when you can. I'm a big guy so heavy stuff didn't bother me until my back troubles, now I have to be more careful, but a couple of pounds of cameras doesn't seem to make things worse.

I once had a Canon F-1n, with motor drive, that puppy was heavy.

OH BOY, lemme tell ya about sweet! It is worth it's weight in gold! wow wow wow, fast, accurate and stunning, I am so hooked, I may have to go into debt for one of these babies!

I mentioned it was a rental right? I got it at I cannot say enough great stuff about these guys! This is my third rental from them, top notch all the way! They do Nikon and Canon lenses, and are pretty reasonable I think. (much cheaper than buying it right!)

The lens it's self is 4 lbs, plus the body and they battery pack, so I am luggin around like 8 lbs in camera gear, it is hard on the arm a bit, but I am already getting used to it.

The only problem I have encountered is the 70 mm isn't quite wide enough for what I need it for. a 50-200 would be the perfect lens. or even 24-200.

I think I may slip into deep depression when it is time to return this baby!
