Here are some update pics of my E with my new camera (Canon 40d). Still figuring out how to use the camera and I'm a newb to taking pictures with a dig. slr.

No new mods....this is probably how it'll be all summer :-( ALL extra funds are going to expanding our business, so the E will just have to wait for now ;-)

Very nice Scott. Those 22's fit very well in there. I can't wait until you paint her. Have you thought about leaving the lower plastic strip around the bottom of the car black? You could get away just painting the rear bumper & upper portion of the front end orange. With the bottom strip black the top black strips work with the sunroof and other black trim. Maybe orange calipers on the big brakes? I'm just throwing out ideas. You're already doing it...





this is the money shot:

Thanks guys!!!

cai....baby's doing great. He's growing like a weed, 6mo. and already over 17lbs :D

Burn....I've thought about your suggestion. The front lower would still need painted black as it's just primer right now. I'm not sure if I'm staying Tang. or going with another color too, so that'll determine how I go. (the "money shot" is funny because I had to hold the camera above my head and shoot it blind :))

REZA...the lens is the 28-135mm lens. I'm saving up to get a wide lens like a Canon 10-22 wide. Most of the coloring/effects were done post with photoshop. I have yet to learn how to do all these settings on the camera....very complex :twisted:

jea....yes, we hope to make it to grand lake this summer :cool:

Dance, take a look at the Sigma 10-20, Tokina 12-24, and Tokina 11-16mm wide angle lenses too. Lots of choices.

I shoot with a 40D too. GREAT camera.

Also look at a good prime lens if you're doing a lot of portraits. I just picked up a Canon 50mm f1.4 and it's incredible. The cool stuff you can do with depth of field when you open the lens all the way up is awesome. Plus it's great for doing long exposure stuff at night. You get used to not having a zoom pretty quickly, just means you have to move around a lot more.

I shot with a Canon 10-22 lens a few times and it's wicked sweet as well but pretty pricey. All depends on what kind of shooting you're going to do.

One of my favorite E's right there. Thanks for posting these pics, Dance! :)

Agree with the money shot. That is one pic I am going to download and keep! :D

Coffee...I have the 50mm 1.8f....not quite as nice as the 1.4 but still can do some nice things. I love it for how small and light it is, plus it's easy to use. It just cuts a lot of the shot out when using it.

Suff....glad to hear from you bro!! Wish we were back in Columbus....that was a good time last year :D

TM is part of the SOP family....us orangies gotta stick together ;-)
