Swiss Classic British Car Meeting 2010, Morges, Switzerland / Suisse - 50 photos with Canon 5D MKII and 24-70mm 2.8 L USM

19th Swiss Classic British Car Meeting in Morges, 2010

As every year, the 2010 19th Swiss Classic British Car meeting is taking place on the lake side of Morges, Switzerland. Very nice weather for hosting 1’600 cars from all over Europe who have only one requirement: being English manufactured. It’s also a good moment to make some photo, however it’s a difficult task: it’s crowded, many cars are ordinary, background is very busy, and you always have someone coming in front of the objective! Not an easy one! You can find below 50 photographs of the 2010 British Car Meeting, all shot with Canon EOS 5D MKII and the Canon 24-70mm 2.8 L USM lens, perfect combinaison for shooting as much details as possible, while being able to have wide coverage in the same time. The f/2.8 stop of the Canon 24-70mm is clearly a big help in this kind of situation vs. a min f/4 stop (Canon 24-105mm) to get the specific beautiful depth of field (dof) necessary to eliminate unnecessary things that could spoil your picture in an elegant and distinctive manner. 

Few tips to get better car event pictures

 

  1. The perfect car picture is hard to take: it should have no disturbance in front, beside and beyond the car. The background needs to be sharp and should emphasize on dramatizing the car beauty. So, if you don’t have lot of space behind the car, it will be difficult
  2. Focus on the details instead: especially on old cars, there are many details that might make you making very powerful shots such as wheels, mirror, logos, … This is where you should put all you framing knowledge into capturing interesting shots, especially with fast aperture settings. Make sure to play with the different vibrant colors that you will have in front of you.
  3. Make photography of everything which is around the event: people walking, smiling and watching at car, or the many different activities that come around it. It should be very interesting and will help telling the story around the exhibition.

I switched to Canon EOS 5D MKII - Photo Test Review with 16-35mm 2.8L, 24-70 2.8L and 100-400 4.5-5.6L

Time to switch from Sony/Minolta to the world of Canon EOS

It was time for me to go to the next level, and I wanted to purchase a full frame camera. Since I need to also invest in high quality lenses, I was facing the choice to either go with Sony A850 or to switch brand… which I’ve done by selecting the Canon EOS 5D MKII and 3 fantastic pro lenses: Canon 16-35mm 2.8 L II USM, Canon 24-70mm 2.8 L USM and Canon 100-400mm 4.5-5.6 L USM. Below you will find my feelings after some intensive photo test on the field with it, in several conditions: landscape, action, outdoor life, concert, interior, night… nothing scientific, just photographies!

Solid professional built, a little bit heavy to carry

I’ve shot 700 photographies and one movie within one day, which is not that bad!In fact, the Canon 5D MKII is just a fantastic piece of art, it just totally revolutionised the way I will do photography, after 2.5 years with the Sony A700 and few G lenses from Minolta (not SSM, but 2.8 G). First of all, the camera is very well built, the lenses are solid and their are razor sharp… the only downside is that it’s quite heavy if you carry the 3 lenses and the 580 EXII Speedlite flash as well! The feeling of shooting with this new camera is like having a new generation of camera in hand (it already has 18months on the market!), and the speed, the noise and the experience is in a totally different league. It’s probably impossible to come back!

Fast Autofocus and metering always correct

I’ve been lucky enough today to find many nice situations to test the camera. It scores very well in every type of conditions, whether the subject is landscape or static, or whether it’s action. The combinaison of fast L lenses should probably help a lot. The first thing that strikes me was the very silent AutoFocus motor, so silent that I thought it was not working. Vey different from the Minolta non SSM lenses! The AF is most of the time intuitive and right, which is a pleasure to work with. The light metering is always very acurate, and there are almost no under or overexposure.

Superb viewfinder to enjoy making photography again and again

The viewfinder of the Canon 5D MKII is super bright and large, which finally makes the Manual Focus process possible and even pleasant to do. On top, the view within the finder is gorgeous and really makes you wish to do more photos, again and again!

Sharp like a razor, gorgeous color spectrum

The lenses are providing a very sharp results, even on the 21Mpixels the camera is providing. The bokeh at 2.8 aperture is very soft and creamy, extremely pleasant to look at. The colors are very well rendered, without any exaggerated saturation or artificial colors. Instead, the colors are showing very beautiful contrast, with an impressive spectrum of degrade of red, green and yellow. The results are professional straight from the camera, and there are very little need to work on the picture in Lightroom.

Shoot in High ISO (up to 6400) without noise

Shooting at 3200 and 6400 ISO is possible with the Canon 5D MKII… and it gives fantastic results without noise! Amazing, I’m totally stunt, especially in the concert pictures where you need sufficient shutter speed in dark conditions, it works perfectly. Auto ISO is selected automatically picture by picture, and the final result is not showing any differences, even when viewed at 100%.

Conclusion is no brainer, the Canon 5D MKII is the best choice I could have done

I’m extremely happy with the choice I made. The world of Canon EOS will also provide me much more choice and stability in the investment I’ve done, which is also an important reason for me to switch. The photo final results are impressive and professional, straight out of the camera. Shooting in high ISO is expanding the range of usability, and these by managing the noise at very low level. Look at the pictures below made on my first day with the camera!

Samples

All pictures below have been made with Canon 5D MKII, 16-35mm 2.8 L USM, 24-70mm 2-8 L USM and 100-400mm 4.5-5.6 L USM. All shots have been made under cloudy conditions between Morges and Lausanne, in Switzerland, next to the Leman Lake (Geneva Lake). Auto ISO, mostly Aperture priority or fully manual, and most of the time shot at fastest aperture possible on the lens (2.8 or 4.5).

Morges Fête de la Tulipe, Switzerland (Suisse) - 75 photos + 5 tips to take great flower pictures

Morges Fête de la Tulipe (Tulip Festival) - 40 years and 200’000 bulbs in Morges 2010 edition

The Fête de la Tulip in Morges is happening every year during March-April, for the last 40 years. Around 100’000 bulbs are seed in the Parc of Independance, where the Morges river is ending in the Geneva lake, next to the Castle. The organisators have seed 200’000 tulip bulbs this year, which is probably one of the largest tulip festival in the world, with dozens of multi color variants. Thousands of people come visiting it every day, and depending of the weather, the flowers can last up to 5 weeks! 

5 Tips to take great and spectacular flower pictures

Taking great pictures of flowers has always been one of the main reason to purchase a camera for many of us! Flower photos in the magazines and on websites always look full of colors, saturated and have a peaceful ambiance. However, when back at home, the results might not be always as expected. You don’t necessarily need an expensive macro lens, actually a zoom with fast aperture can really give dramatic effect (for info, most of the below photos have been taken with Minolta 80-200 HS G f/2.8). Here are a few tips and advises that might help you make the photos looking really gorgeous and spectacular as the 75 pictures of tulips you can see below:

  1. Shoot horizontally your flowers: many people I see taking pictures of flowers do it with a vertical angle, standing right in front of it. This gives no perspective to the flowers, and you will have very flat render. You need to get yourself at the same level as the flowers, and shoot on a horizontal perspective your subject, like doing portrait. You might have to be on your knees most of the time, so be prepared and do not wear a white trouser!
  2. Arrange the scene to be spectacular with a clean background: have a flower in focus and play around it (rule of third, diagonal…), especially if you have a clean and bright background this will help you a lot to emphasize the scene and glorify it.
  3. Play with zoom, DOF and light: you need to masterize the aperture of your lens, which will blur the background and help you realize the tip #2. Macro lens or tele-zoom (starting at 70mm) might really help you here, and to get great perspective don’t hesitate to go up to the maximum of your lens (200-300mm). Make sure your subject (the flower!) is sufficiently lightened so the render will be even more spectacular. Be careful of too bright light, especially on white flowers, it will just burn the petals.
  4. Look around you to compose the scene: flowers are beautiful, and most of the time deserve to be the only subject of the photo. However do not forget that what’s around you might also give fantastic scene, where the flower will just be an element that will sublimate the overall picture, being on the first or secondary plan.
  5. Do not over saturate the final results: make sure when finalising the render on your computer that the flower colors are not over saturated (red and orange are typically the most sensitive), and that you still have enough details in the the white petals.

Portraits à Morges - Suisse

Voici 2 portraits hivernaux faits à Morges, en Suisse… l’année dernière! Le soleil de ce mois de Février était forte et reflétait agréablement sur le lac Léman. Les bateaux rendaient bien dans le fond.
