    That's the problem with photography... I can't think of a Photographer without another job to make ends meet.

    It's very difficult to make a living. Which is why I never really created a full business for myself doing it. Law enforcement is my primary job, I was born for this. I haven't picked up a camera for anything less than a few personal projects here and there in many moons. I need to get back behind the glass.

    Since I live on the road 10 months out of the year I have to get creative with my studio and scavenge available materials on location to make things work.
    I figured y'all would get a kick out of my improvised blue light modifier.


    Here's the resulting image

    I'm going to be in the market for a new lens in the next few months and I'm hoping some of y'all can point me in the right direction. It's for a Canon Rebel XTI and will mainly be used for pictures of deer in 1/4 - 1 acre pens, so anywhere from 10 yards to 100 yards. I will also be using it to shoot other miscellaneous wildlife out of deer stands so if I could reach out to 150+ yards that would be awesome. I got a few deer photos this past weekend with my 100-300mm lens and it left a little to be desired. I'm not sure what my budget will be, but I'll probably see what's out there first and then decide what I can afford.

    Hmm tough one.

    I know nothing of this lens but it's on sale for $449, has IS built in and has a USM, Its within your budget and has a good amount of zoom.

    Save up and find yourself a refurbished Canon 24-105 L series. Best all around lens you can have in the bag.

    With the 24-105, is the image clarity good enough to where I could zoom in on a seemingly far away photo and retain most of the clarity? In other words, a photo at 100 yards at 105mm is going to look farther away than the same photo at 300mm, so would I be able to zoom in on the subject and keep a sharp image? If so, I would probably go with that lens due to the versatility and the ability to also use it for gun and truck pics. If not, I would probably just get a dedicated long range lens for now and then add a close-up lens to the arsenal down the road.

    Most of if not all of the L series lenses are worth the money. UW is on the right track. Save up some more money (sucks to do) and get s quality piece of glass you'll use forever. Buyers remorse on glass sucks.

    Resurrecting an older thread... I'm in the market for a faster lens for my old but trusty Nikon D80. I'm trying to grab something in the 1.4 range but I'm also trying to keep it at the $500 or less price point due to budget (holiday travels and an ancient laptop are other priorities right now).

    Use is pretty much still only and looking at a 30-35mm. For general still life/gun pics, this seems to give the best FOV for rifle sized subjects while also allowing other outside endeavors. Given that, I'm looking at this:

    So given the limitations, am I out to lunch on this?

    I have a (old model) Sigma 1.8 50mm and I like it a lot. My guess is the 30 is probably decent. Of course you can get the Nikon 1.4 35mm for a lot less. I think reviews on the B&H site are pretty reliable.
