Quick grab yesterday with the 5d2.  One thing I love about the Canon is how fast I can move around a building.  I shot the overall primary dusk view with the Arca/P65+ and then ran around grabbing other stuff with the DSLR as the light faded into nothingness.

Nice images, MJS; wish my Fiesta's paint looked even 30% as nice. It did for about a week or so then vanished with the first delicate wash...

Often wondered how it would feel to own beautiful cars, but with my psychology it might simply raise the stress levels to implosion. I try to park in fields and disused aerodromes already. With a Fiesta. And there are no disused aerodromes around here.

Hi, Rob.

If you only want to own a car for it's looks, then buy a model... or go to a car show and take some photographs.

I have two nice looking cars ( both over 12 years old) but mostly I enjoy driving them... one for roadholding and one for comfort, both stress-free.

Good stuff, all.

MJS:  The new MacLaren!  Great shots.

Mr. Barrett:  I'm glad to see a bayou boy make good.  Great shot.  I really like what you've een doing with motion as well.

Master Cooter:  The frame with the bubbles is truly outstanding.

Master Cooter's other great shot, with the lovely posed with the phonograph, is geat.  For the newbs, please observe that the magic in that frame is NOT in the megapix, its lighting, set dressing, and art direction from Master Cooter's studio.  Its the attention to detail, the palette, the styling, the light, the posing.  This is what you aspiring shooters need to spend time on, not backs and cameras.  Its better to have a cheapish camera and good art direction/styling/linghting/set dressing/directorial skills than an IQ180/H4D-60/Aptus/Credo blah blah with shitty lighting and shitty art direction in front of it.

Thanks for this quote! In fact the camera is what matters less in all the pipeline, but...what often worries me is that it seems that it's not only a great quote to catch for the newbees...

Have you seen the latest film of Recuenco with iphones? it tells it all.

Yeah, the Coot stuff with the bubbles is truly wonderfull.

Thanks, Much!  We actually just heard tonight that our new short has been selected as a finalist in the Louisiana Film Prize Competition, and will be screening at the festival this October.

Fred, can you supply a link to the Recuenco film?

Regarding TMARK's statement, he's on the money. There's a level of quality which can hold you back, but there's also the level from which you need go no further. In effect, you just can't buy class, and class is what always comes through in Cooter's pictures. I think it's a measure of his outlook and operation. You only need to read his posts to understand that cameras are but a tiny part of the whole process.

In life, it's we who are often the main block to our own success, not our bank balances.

Great news Chris!  Congratulations!

One of my favorite Swamp Pop guys, Charlie Adcock (CC Adcock, Little Band of Gold) calls South Louisiana LA on the Coast, the Gulf Coast that is.

Fred, the a Bayou boy is from Louisiana's Gulf Coast.  Cajun culture.  Good food and good music.  New Orleans is French and Spanish influenced.  The food is different, French inspired but heavier.  Feels more like Port au Prince than an American city, although that's been changing.  Its a great place to visit, not as great to produce something.

Not a day passes Im not tuned into this stuff; just love its feel and slow, easy emotions. Other times it can break your heart.

Rob, TMark, thanks for the Bayou explainations.

New Orleans is French and Spanish influenced...    Its a great place to visit, not as great to produce something.  

Sounds strangely familiar: french and spanish's tendencies. Hey, heritage heritage. We know we can't have good food and good producers in the same area.

Cheers from hell (40 on the shade at the moment)

Weired,

It doesn't look like Cooter's imagery. Did you outsource the grading?
It reminds me of some Boris or Magic Bullet kind of output, but...if it's life style or advert and the target are kids, it makes all sense
as Polas are very fashionable on the young generation and therefore will talk to them.

Ps: maybe some vigneting and a bit less perfectly square (some defects on straight lines-borders) ?
