Walking Gantry Park in the morning

Another family portraiture on-location photography session with great family of Noah, Sean, Ariane, Barry and David.

Gantry Park in Long Island City with the great view to Manhattan. They expanded park greatly and put a lot of cool things there. I just love this place even more!

Funny face

It was just a test of new Canon EOS 50D test with a direct in-camera flash.

Pretty cool for direct burning light. My son survived it too :)

Few features I love most about this camera:

– pretty good ISO, very good for photojournalism (I was suffering badly while photographed ballet backstage with my Canon 5D – can’t use more than 1200ISO for color);

– it’s quite fast – 6 fps gives much more freedom photographing in fast-pacing conditions like street-life or live performance photography (maybe not enough for sport photography though);

– in-camera sensor-cleaning! I hate my 5D because I can’t clean it’s sensor enough to shoot over f18 – there are more visible dust on it than details of picture :(

Overall it feels much faster than old 5D. But I’ll continue to use old guy until I grab one of Canon 5D Mark II because I need full-frame very often. And I can’t complain about quality of pictures from it in most cases.
