Yesterday I had the opportunity to do a winter engagement photo shoot for a lovely couple. We went to multiple places in DC – from the US Capitol, to the Jefferson Memorial, and finally ended it near the White House! Continue reading to see more photographs from this shoot.
If you’ve never been inside the Jefferson Memorial before in Washington DC, looking at the zoomable photograph at the bottom of this post will give you the feeling that you’ve been there.
Merry Christmas from Washington DC! This morning’s sunrise at the Vietnam Memorial. And a special Thank You and Merry Christmas to those that have served – past, present, and future!
The idea was pretty simple. Get up a little before 4AM and leave the house by 4:30AM to get to the bottom of the trail going up Maryland Heights. Hike up the mountain in total darkness to the overlook that looks across the Potomac river at Harpers Ferry. And then wait for the sunrise! Of course do this in the fall when the leaves are at their peak color. What could go wrong?
Here’s the final set of three raw sample images. This time scenes that have a broad dynamic range and one that was much darker to start with was selected.
The weather conditions were good enough this past week that I was able to go over and take my yearly picture of the Christmas tree at the US Capitol. You’ll want to read the rest of this post so you can get to the zoomable version of this photo. There you’ll be able to zoom into it and see all the detail!
Here’s a second set of images taken with the Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 5D Mark III, and Canon 6D. If you haven’t read the first post, Canon 6D Raw Sample Images With Comparison To 5D2 And 5D3, I’d suggest you read it first. It explains how these tests were setup. This time I also used a Canon 100mm f/2.8L IS USM for one of the scenes.
UPDATE: I’ve posted a second set of images that you can download also. And, if you are looking for more ISO sample raw files go to Neil van Niekerk’s blog, he has a post comparing various Canon and Nikon cameras taken during the day (where as mine are at night).
I rented a Canon 6D from lensrentals.com to have over the weekend so I could test out the new camera. Supposedly the new camera’s sensor is very good at high ISO and it’s auto focus will work in lower light. I wanted to do some comparison of the noise at higher ISO compared to my Canon 5D Mark III and Canon 5D Mark II. Here I’m posting up the raw files for others to look at.
