"I have been purchasing the E-Booklets for some time and have never been disappointed. The latest one continues to add new and helpful information. I will continue to upgrade, if not just to show my support for Uwe's fantastic site. We are all lucky to have a resource like this available to us." Brud Jones, 2/1/2004

If you work with Photoshop CS our e-books DOP1009 or DOP2000 are the right choice for the Canon 1D Mark II. DOP2000 is the more complete handbook.


Note on image processing:

As usual we work only with raw files and used for this portfolio Camera Raw 2.2 for Photoshop CS.

All images are also sharpened using EasyS Sharpening.

November 2004 "Digital Fine Art Photographer's Summit" in Phoenix, AZ


Was a cloudy day here in the Bay Area. This is a positive thing as we hardly see any clouds at once the rainy season is over. The Santa Cruz Pier is fun to visit. We hoped to find some pelicans, but no luck here (for the last couple of visits actually). All photos are taken with the Canon 300 f/4 IS lens and the 1.4x tele converter (effective focal length 546mm f/5.6).

Gulls in Flight

For the flight shots we used the Mark II at high speed in very short bursts (fun and the card fills fast).

Was again nice to use ISO 400 on the fly without caring to much about noise.

We had a good time with the MarkII although the high contrast was a real challenge.
