New photos in my slideshow

I uploaded some new photos into the slideshow on my main page :) Mostly wedding photos but also added one photo from an engagement shoot and one photo from a basketball game. I should have the wedding photo favorites from the December 20th wedding uploaded tonight while I sleep (at least that's the plan). I narrowed my 750 or so photos down to 50 of my favorites. My 5D Mark II takes huge files though, most of my images at 10mb or bigger if I export them at 100% jpg resolution. But the photos look amazing and I love the results the 35L and 135L lenses were giving me on that camera. My absolute favorite first dance photo is in that bunch that will be getting uploaded later.

Catching up on recent events

So in my rush to constantly test my 5D Mark II out (which oh yeah, do I REALLLLLLLY love this camera) I have a few more things prior to the wedding I just shot to post. Namely some really nice shots I was able to take in available light w/ the 135 f2/L lens that I also got not the long ago.

These were taken at my work places staff Christmas feast last week. (I work at Valparaiso University's IT department for my "main" job)

Seriously, no flash for any of these! I'm loving this camera and it's high ISO abilities!!

Basketball w/ a 5D Mark II

I finally got my 5D Mark II about a week ago and have been putting it to plenty of good use. This camera does some amazing things at high ISO!! For anyone wondering, the photos below were taken with my 70-200 f2.8/L IS USM. I was at ISO 4,000 shooting at 1/800 f2.8. The photos are very clean for such a high ISO setting which really impresses me and the white balance was spot on. I have my first wedding w/ this camera on the 2oth of December which I'm really looking forward to.

November Wedding

I second shot this wedding for Captured by Candi, but it was still a fantastic opportunity. The couple had their reception at the White Sox park in the Jim Bean room which was super neat and gave us a lot of other opportunities.
