This bull had just lost a fight over a harem of cows and headed for the hills. His rack was larger than that of the opponent, but the opponent's body was larger and that is where the battle strength comes from.
 
Capturing this image was primarily a matter of repeatedly getting out in front of the bull and properly predicting where it would enter a clearing at the right distance for the big prime lens I was using. As you will notice from the camera settings for this image, it was quite dark when this image was captured. The pursuit started under cloudy weather that deteriorated into light rain.
 
I still have one opening remaining for the September elk in rut photo tour in Rocky Mountain National Park (or get on the 2020 waiting list). Consider joining a small group of photographers (all skill levels welcome) pursuing these awesome animals and other wildlife and landscape opportunities in this great park!
 
A larger version of this image is available on Flickr.

From the Adorama YouTube channel:
 
We often see beams of light created my nature but being at the right place at the right time when you're shooting portraits is tricky. So in this video Gavin Hoey will show you how to use flash to create rays of light on a location shoot, whenever you want them.
 
Using a single flash fired through a small window, Gavin adds smoke to the scene in order to see the real rays of light. He then adds a second flash to light his model and create a dark and moody urbex style portrait in a disused building.

Image quality test results have been added to the Sony FE 100mm f/2.8 STF GM OSS Lens page.
 
You are going to be impressed with these results.
 
This is a unique lens. The product images show that this lens has a manual aperture ring denoted "T", for T-stops, showing the actual amount of light transmission. While this is technically an f/2.8 lens, the T-stop ring stops at f/5.6 and f/5.6 is the widest aperture selectable in-camera. The reason has to do with the STF (Smooth Trans Focus) feature including an optical apodization lens element. More information coming.
 
The Sony FE 100mm f/2.8 STF GM OSS Lens is in stock at B&H | Adorama | Amazon USA | WEX
 
Rent the Sony FE 100mm f/2.8 STF GM OSS Lens from Lensrentals.

From Lastolite:
 
Upper Saddle River, NJ - MAY 21, 2019 - The Lastolite Panoramic Background is a collapsible 13’ (4m) wide, 7’5” (2.3m) high background that folds down neatly into its own carry case and fits easily into a car. Weighing only 19.8lb (9kg), it’s ideal for busy image-makers on the move. The background is completely self-supporting and can be set up in minutes. The structure comprises three individual aluminum framed sections, connected together with a hinge clip to allow the background to be set up flat to lean against a wall or with the side frames folded in to create a wraparound effect. The Chroma Key Blue cover simply clips to the aluminum frame and creates a taught, seamless surface.
 
The background is ideal for live stream and post-production keying projects. Its impressive 13' width creates enough working area for multiple camera angles and subjects. Although the brushed fabric is incredibly non-reflective, the height and width combined is enough to place the subject(s) at a good working distance from the background eliminating risk of any color spill from the Chroma Key Blue surface.
 
Whether you are shooting a single person, a larger group or even products, the Lastolite Panoramic Background offers ultimate versatility. The wider format allows the image-maker to introduce props and accommodate animated poses from the likes of dancers or athletes. The Chroma Key Blue now sits alongside the highly successful Chroma Key Green, Black, White, Granite and Limestone versions.
 
All models are available at select Authorized Lastolite Dealers.
 
B&H has the Panoramic Background 13' Chroma Key Blue available for preorder and the other Lastolite Panoramic Backgrounds in stock.
