That was crazy. Everyone was getting ready to go to the Playboy Mansion but decided to tan nude at the yard. They were comparing v-gies so we decided to have a contest on who has the nicest one. John was chosen to be the judge and he picked a winner. In return, the girls asked him to show his. I had to excuse myself as he was undoing his pants...then it happen. LMFAO!

Sad thing is that while Benette was enjoying the day and the contest, all he was concern about was his friend Andrew P not being there and how he would've enjoyed being there as well....oh well.

Here is Bennette's behind the scene. I guess he is taking a head shot of a topless model. LOL

Bennette is too close. The minimum focusing distance on a 70-200mm f/2.8 is approximately 5 ft.

It's a good thing that only the circle was present when the shenanigans occurred...

Who gives a rat's ass about minimum focusing distance when Bennette isn't even shooting the model.  He just wants to get close to a beautiful topless model and use the camera and the mucho telephoto lens to impress her.

I'm not hating, i'm just laughing at the quality of junk Cannots produce. I laughed when i heard Verone dropped a f/1.2 lens but when i actually was handed a camera and the lens just fell off on me, that's just priceless. lol

Why are you being defensive? All I said their Nicants didn't have video. I didn't say anything was wrong with them. John has video but he doesn't know how to use it. So why would you put down a brand of camera you don't even have and don't know how to hold?( you almost dropped the $6k lens and you know it).

I said the lens fell off on me, not dropped, lol. Lens dropped on floor on Verone = Lens fell off  on me = Canon can't keep lens from falling off = Canon < Nikon lol

You would think that after 80 years later that if Canon can put video in a camera, that they could at least keep the lens from falling off.

It is user error. You don't know how to hold a "real" camera with a "real" lens.

Well said Drew. The only reason karl got Nicant is because it was on sale and the saleswoman lied to him about how good it was suppose to be. She took karl for her commision check.  Karl was to busy looking at boobies that he just said yes to whatever she said.  Everyone knows that 70% percent of all major news publications changed from Nicant to canon because nicant equipment was and still is inferior to canon.

Funny, then why did verone sell a "real" camera? Hmm, because lens fall off and can't focus in low light, lol.

The $6k lens did not fall off. The handler did not know how to hold it properly, and that was you. Verone did sell his 5D MKII and got a 1D MK4. He upgraded. Mike Quan "tossed" his D3 to the ocean and got himself a 5D MKii instead. John sold his D700 and bought a D300s. When are you selling yours and get a D90?

I did not hold it properly? Is that your best excuse? Come on, you can do better than that, lol. Verone sold the 5D MKII because it was crap. He even said so at the M&G, lol. Why would i sell my D300 when it JUST works?

Really?  Wy would a lens become dis-engauged once locked on?  Sounds like a poor lens locking design to me, but whatever?  And drew... how many times have I heard you say I hate this f*king 5DMKII focusing system?

As you know I don't care either way, people shoot what they shoot, we all make good photos...well ok most of us make good photos at the shoots, so squash this business already!  I need more models!!!  Please don't forget to attempt inviting a certain ethnic group of model to the shoot wink

Is there a model who would like to shoot in the pool underwater for the last hour of one on ones?

Nude / semi nude preferred (all very tasteful). Check out my profile for underwater photos with Thao from last month's shoot:

The light and the condition of the pool were excellent last time.
Please message me if interested.
