Cheers Nick. I was pleased the way the F1 shots came out. I have a few more of the Touring Cars which I will get up when I get home.

A new lens has arrived this morning which is much faster so I need to get out and test that.

Thanks  :smiley:

I love the formula one pics too. I really like how clear Horney's pics are. . .

I was told today from a friend that is really into photography that the easiest way to get very classy shots of cars and landscapes etc is to put the selftimer on and let the camera take the picture by itself.

Apparently it makes the image clearer etc.

Will try it  :cool:

Not any pics this time just some random chatter re cleaning.

I had a fair bit of dirt on the sensor and mirror and the rocket blower did the biz on the mirror but the sensor was putting up a fight. I took it to a local shop who do servicing/cleaning and they quoted me £40 to do the sensor. I asked what products they have/use and they showed me a kit from Visible Dust....at £120 :shocked:

I had a look at it and it consists of an Arctic Butterfly (I instantly thought of something for the missus from Ann Summers...shows where my mind is at :grin:) but it is a fine brush that fits into an elctric handle that spins the brush producing silly amounts of static to lift the dust off. You also get 16 1.6mm swabs (clinically sealed) and 16 edge swabs as well as some cleaning fluid.

I priced them up individually (as in the kit you get a handy case for the butterfly, some swabs, fluid and other small bits) and it came to £132. I cheakily asked for some lens cleaner (that has a cloth, mini screwdrivers and brush in the kit) and did a 'what's the best price' thing just like Dom from Don't Get Done Get Dom :grin:. They did the lot for me for £105 so bargain all the way.

The camera now has flawless pics (well the quality not the pic taker) so I feel really proud of myself :smug:

Only thing is there are some marks/dust on the focus viewer that you can see when framing the pic, but as this doesn't come out in the pics I'm happy. Had a quote to get the screen replaced/cleaned and as they have to take the top of the body (old D70) it would be £70 so I think I can live with it as is :grin:

Just though I'd share.

Good stuff, my lenses are filthy and need a good clean and I have had to give my sensor a quick wipe with a cotton bud once since I got it Jan.

The Northloop guys are at Silverstone next Thursday (7th) and as I'm possibly selling the Mk1 track car and didn't want to chance an 'off' I'm going to take some pics on the day. I bought the camera to do pics at the CGTi 'Ring trip but as I'm not there (f*&%ing work) I'm needing to get a trackday fix...even if it's from the sidelines :smiley:.

You about next Thurs??
Title: Re: The Photography Thread, back again by popular demand!
Post by: Komenda on 01 August 2008, 16:27
I use this, has replaceable tips that you can clean each time you use it by twisting it in the cap. It has a diamond shape so you can get right in the corners and a fine brush at the other end. Good bit of kit for £30

Cheers dude. I've got my camera setup just right now and getting some good shots.
I have just had a faster lens delivered so I might be able to push the shutter to the extremes now. I want it to be a little more than a hobby so I'm starting a website to show my pics and basically going to whore myself out.

Overcast skies are brilliant for photography and I was really lucky last night that the clouds were well defined. It actually wasn't that dark but I purposefully under exposed the shots and used the flash on a tripod to pick out the cars. I need to work a bit on getting the flash to focus more on the car and less on the ground, but I'm getting there. I should hopefully be adding a couple more flashes to set up later in the year to start playing with multiple light sources and cross lighting. Man this is a more expensive hobby than dubs!

my OCF works superbly btw... no need for triggers imo...works in every position in front and behind the camera

No worries mate, No Rice next week will be as good a place as any to have a faff about with em. If you've got a spare tripod it's worth bringing along to mount the flash on (I've got a couple of adaptors to let you do this which you can borrow.)

Post by: Horney on 05 August 2008, 11:05
Gash tripods are ideal for flash stands as long as it's not likely to fall over and muller it on the tarmac. I use a £9 argos one for mine and use my Monfrotto expensive one for the camera.

Did my first track shots yesterday at Silverstone. Have to say I could have done better if I'd used the monopod instead of the tripod as the pics where better.
I found the 'dynamic' shots easier than the panning, but hey...first time out was to learn. I took over 800 pics and have just spent 12 hours photoshoping (my free 30 day elements trial runs out at midnight :embarassed:) to get them spot on as I was the only photographer there and ended up doing the official pics for the day through Northloop :shocked:...baptism of fire and all that.
I can't put too many up as they are yet to be sold to the people who've ordered them...but here's a few :wink:

He's an easy model mate, he lives in a pub and is the most chilled out dog you could ever meet, I swear he thinks he's a cat! This was taken during a soul night down there at about 1am and the music was REALLY loud and the pub was packed with truly smashed people and he just sat there people watching.

Cheers for the good comments as ever, keeps me driven to try harder and harder with all this!

Just a quick one regarding photoshop. I had a trial of Elements 6 for 30 days and loved it, but being tight I didn't want to spend the £70 on the Adobe site and didn't really trust the ones on e-bay as many sellers had copied the disc and sold the same serial number many times over.
I went onto Amazon and saw an add for Elements 6 disk and serial number only i.e. no box or instructions (you can get them online anyway and tutorials on youtube) so chatted to the seller.
Yesterday I got the disk and had to remove the trial programme and load this one. I did and all is well.....for the grand total of £24 for an authentic disk and code.

If you want Elements 6 I would recommend this chap....WARREN-M Software on Amazon. Very quick service and authentic product....my sales pitch is now over  :wink:

Not much I can say about those, no real room for improvement, they're spot on. You have got some dirt on your lens or sensor though.

You've reminded that photography had a profound effect on me when I was a teenager. I used to buy a magazine called Skateboader when I was a kid, and I would spend hours looking at the photo's of the amazing things that the Californian kids used to do, (so jealous of their kidney bowl swimming pools and huge drainage pipes they could skate in) and it was down to a photographer/artist called Craig Stecyk, he just caught the fealing so right.

If you want a point and click digital then Fuji make some good cheap ones. If you want to get creative then a budget DSLR will set you back £250 to £300

These are 2 good ones.

Hey guys, whats the best thing on Photoshop to make an individual colour brighter?

Use quick selection and choose colour. Then adjust the RGB sliders or saturation until you get the desired result.
Title: Re: The Photography Thread, back again by popular demand!
Post by: bobotheclown on 13 November 2008, 10:21
Another way (which is crude) is to go to IMAGE - ADJUSTMENTS - REPLACE COLOUR

sample the colour you want to make more vivid/brighter. Warning: it may select colours in other parts of the image (see example where I have made the blue more intense) and then adjust the SATURATION slider bar.

Notice that the jeans in the people on the left were also made brighter.

Post by: bobotheclown on 13 November 2008, 10:24
If you wanted to be really specific then you can use Adjustment Layers in Photoshop, but that's difficult to explain easily. Here's a tutorial on adjustment layers. The beauty of adjustment layers is that the original photo is not harmed or touched and the adjustment layer can be edited in the future if you need to.

Cheers Nick, really happy with the photos lucky it didnt rain today!! already waited 3 weeks lol yeah the white wheels would suit yours and esp if they were Rota's

Post by: Horney on 15 November 2008, 22:29
Rotas would look sick but the ones I want are only available in the wrong stud pattern. If I get custom adapters made up then they'll be way out on the offset and poke out to much. All that on top of the fact I can't even remotely afford a set!

Post by: bobotheclown on 15 December 2008, 10:05
you can get a similar effect in camera using a long shutter speed and rotating the camera also try using a long shutter speed and zooming in/out. If you want to capture the car in focus and have blurry edges and set the flash to fire, have the long shutter speed and then spin the camera around, no need to move the camera too much to get a decent blurry effect.

Great pics on this page!

Nick: Was this a paid do or photography for a friend? The pics look great!

stink: I'm the same, no confident enough yet to do a wedding! Nor have I even been to a wedding before! :(

I've done a few.. high pressure photography situations so far. One was shooting the Show n Shine awards ceremony at the North East VW Festival. That was scary when my flash started playing up!!

Done a few birthday parties/gigs and special occasions, etc.

It's hard working knowing you only have this one chance to take the photo before the moment is gone forever!

Guys, sometimes my camera won't take photos in the dark because it can't auto focus.  Does that mean I'll have to focus it manually?  Thing is I can't focus manually either, because it's dark, and I can't see, but the exposure in the end will be enough for it to come out ok, if you get me?

It's like a catch 22 situation.

Probably because the lens is to slow for the shot you are trying to take. Try adjusting the f stop or aperture manually. Another trick is to shine a torch on the subject, focus, lock it off and take the snap

Bob what settings are the 'manual mode' to get the light effects?? they look great
I think it was ISO 100, 15 second shutter, f5.6, and I set the timer to 10 seconds.

Clicked shoot, ran in front of the camera, and used my iPhone to make the pretty colours!

Excellent pics Nick :) Is that the super cheap Canon 50mm 1.8? Got mine for £45 and it's fantastic for the price!!

Those kitten pictures are bloody good. Any tips/EXIF data on how to achieve them?

Yeah that's the lens fella. They seem to have gone up in price though as I hunted around and could only get it for £70 delivered.

Look em up on my flickr for the exif data on the kitten shots, I can't remember the settings off hand.

Couple of questions:

Photos were taken using canon 400D.

1. i cant seem to get the manual mode to turn the F below about 4, is this cos of the lens im using (the boggo one that comes with the kit)?

2. How do i get rid of the orange glow that always happens in my night photos, take it thesres some kind of filter?

Photos were taken using canon 400D.

Firstly, great choice of camera. Same as mine :-)

1. i cant seem to get the manual mode to turn the F below about 4, is this cos of the lens im using (the boggo one that comes with the kit)?

Yes indeed. The lowest that a len will go is printed in the numbers round the front of the lens. In the case of the Kit lens 3.5-5.6. This means the lowest f stop at the 18mm (wide) end of the lens is 3.5, at the 55mm (longest) end is 5.6 and inbetwwen it'll be between those two.

2. How do i get rid of the orange glow that always happens in my night photos, take it thesres some kind of filter?

This is called White Balance. Problem is Sodium (orange) lighting is horrible and the camera only compensates a bit in AWB (AutoWhiteBalance) mode. To get rid proper you need to set the White Balance to Manual. You'll also need a sheet of white paper.

1) When at desired location afflicted by orange lights take a photo of the sheet of white paper so that it fills 90% or above of the frame, doesn't matter if it's out of focus.

2) Go to the menu, then to camera menu 2 (if that makes sense?), then scroll down to "Custom WB". Press set. It will then take you to your shots on your card.

3) Scroll through the shots till you get to the sheet of paper you just took and then press set. It'll then tell you to set "WB to <o> (well it sort of looks like that!)."

4) Press menu and you're back to shooting mode. Now press the WB (V) button and select the custom option. Bingo your shots will be Orange free.

5) DON'T FORGET TO CHANGE IT BACK TO AWD NEXT TIME YOU USE YOUR CAMERA! If you don't you'll spend a day taking shots that you think are ok but when you get home and look at them on the computer thew colours are really odd!

Post by: MrBounce on 01 January 2009, 21:32
One thing for camera shake - I find that as a general rule of thumb you usually don't need to rest the camera on anything if the shutter speed is equal to or higher than the focal length of the lens i.e 50mm lens, don't go lower than 1/50th of a second before getting support. And if you're using a zoom lens (which is the standard lens for most of the SLRs sold today), use the larger figure as your base calculation i.e 35-80mm, don't go lower than 1/80th second without support.  :smiley:

You sharpen them at all bud? Maybe try it and see? All digital photos need a little sharpening tweak as digital sensors are much softer than film (You'd think it was the other way wouldn't you?)

They look good though, balance int he 2nd shot is lovely.

I use unsharp mask and then mess with the sliders till I'm happy. Sometimes you can get away with just using the "Sharpen" filter. People seem to bang on about it being to generic but it works OK for me quite often.

Nick, when you do portrait shots with more than one person in the pic do you set the AF point selection to auto or manual centre? Some of my shots have one face in focus and the other not. Just wondered what you did. And do you know if you can select more than one focus point on manual mode as it only lets me select one of the 9 points. Auto mode is a bit hit and miss sometimes not selecting what I want in focus.

The reason you're having probs is because you need a higher F stop. The smaller the F stop the smaller the depth of field (How far back things are in focus). A low F stop gives a very blurred background very quickly as you travel away from the point of focus backwards and forwards. A high F stop and nearly everything is in focus.

Does that make sense? Your 2nd person in the above example is out of the "Field of Focus" as it where. By upping the Fstop you increase the depth of this field and therefore bring the 2nd person into focus.

You can only select 1 focus point. On auto it is just showing which areas are in focus which is why it lights up more than one spot.

Can someone explain why a lens with a rating of f1.4 is better for night time shots?

Is it because it can let more light in?

Bingo!

A lower F stop (in this case 1.4) means it has a bigger aperture and can therefore let in more light. This means you can shoot in lower light conditions and also it allows you to have a very shallow depth of field (an effect caused by a large aperture). Low F stops can only be achieved with expensive glass so you'll find only fixed length and very expensive zooms will go to low Fstops.

nick

What F stop do you think is suffient for a hand held pic? Obviously I don't want the shutter speed to be too slow or it will blur. I understand letting in less light with a higher F stop will mean it needs a slower shutter speed for a good exposure.

Thanks Nick, I understand what you are saying. Tomorrow I hope to get some more shots so have more time to experiment.
Title: Re: The Photography Thread, back again by popular demand!
Post by: Horney on 02 January 2009, 00:23
f8 is the magic number. Start there and work your way up or down and see how you get on. Try using 2 bottle on a table set apart and one a bit back from the other. Set the camera up on a tripod (Or a pile of books or something if you don't have a tripod) and experiment with F stops starting from as low as it'll go and work your way up. You'll be surprised at how it effects your shots.

Once you've done that it'll give you an idea of how it effects your shots at different settings and you start to take that into account when your taking shots. After a while it becomes 2nd nature to pick the right F stop when you compose each shot. Well at least get it roughly right and tweak it from that shot onwards.

i know what you mean, to do that you would need to cut your car out and put it in a scene with the lights etc already in it, if you want the real light effect.

That's actually done with the camera and not in Photoshop. You get the flash to fire at the end of the shutter opening so you get the light trail and then the flash fires and captures the car at the end.

The way the pro's do light graf is usually with led torches or cathode ray tubes [for your own art], then by patching their cameras firmwares to remove the time limit on the shutter so you can for aslong as your memory on the camera permits, a tripod or some kind of stand is a must if you want the lines to be clean and straight.

The guys i spoke to which are one of the best are LICHTFAKTOR, their site is:

Still looks good mate, try turning the monitor off an putting the lamp behind it so the lens isn't exposed to the light source, should be able to get a nice halo effect in HDR around the monitor

Bobbarley, I see you're having fun with low light scenes. Your images look good.

There are three really good photography books I'd recommend to anyone:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/0817463003/ref=s9cpic_c5_img2-rfc_p?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=center-8&pf_rd_r=1NC5GTREN699HE5TWJTK&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=463780633&pf_rd_i=468294

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Digital-Photography-Book-Step-Step/dp/0321524764/ref=pd_sim_b_4

They teach you so much. Well worth purchasing.

I used 200 and 400 dependant on the angle, what do yu think would be best? It was dark but loads of light as it was on a huge car park but the lights were all yellow and I didn't have much time to play about with them tbh.

Good time to buy one. You can get a Canon EOS 1000D Digital SLR with 18-55mm IS Lens for £314 and get £30 cashback on top of that. Excellent camera to learn on too. :wink:

now all the Sony users have cottoned on that the old Minoltas work.

Not strictly true.
While the fitting is the same, not all Minolta fit lenses will work with Sony cameras. It's to do with the electronics and whether the lenses and camera body can communicate all the right information.
This did interest me as I already have a Minolta Dynax film SLR, so getting a Sony camera that could share lenses would be good.
But apparently it's a bit hit and miss.

You're generally ok as long as the Minolta lens uses the old A mount, and has AF.

I've also been asked to photograph a Christening next Sunday.. It's the Christening of the baby I posted a picture of at around page 30 - the super cute one, so I should enjoy it! Pretty nervous about it though.. I'm trying to decide what equipment to take and how to handle the lack of light there is going to be inside the church! They want group shots of upto 12ish people afterwards too. Any tips for this day anyone?

Best tip I can give as you'll not be able to use a tripod is to take your fastest lens, which will have the largest available f-stop and to shoot at a higher ISO. This should stop camera shake as you'll be able to shoot at a fast shutter speed. If you have a monopod take that as that will also help.

Thanks 8 ball :)

I'll be taking the nifty fifty then! Canon's 50mm £50.00 1.8 lens. I think they've put the prices up to about £70 now though?  :rolleyes:

I'll be using my tripod for the group photos so could use a different lens for that. For those I have a choice of:

50mm 1.8
kit lens canon 18-55
sigma 28-200mm (losing faith more every day in this lens, it's becoming rubbish)
Sigma 10-20mm lens (excellent lens, not sure if it'll be even too wide at 20mm?)



I've started a "52 Challenge" over on Talk Photography. I dont have time to do the 365 (one a day) so doing one a week :)
http://www.talkphotography.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=106086

(http://www1.clikpic.com/Redsnapper/images/TRI-283+TBH528%20Head-Web.jpg)

That lovely bit of kit! All the reviews have said it's a fantastic quality tripod for the price :)
Title: Re: The Photography Thread, back again by popular demand!
Post by: Blazing Storm on 15 January 2009, 22:49
With group shots you'll want around f11 for reasonable depth of field and I'd tend to focus on the eyes of the people in the front row (If there's more than one row). The 18-55mm lens might be the right one for this; up to you really.

Tripods are great, I'm loving my Manfrotto.

Beautiful shot of the dog Stink :)


So I went into Town today for Lunch with my girlfriend and to do some Street Photography. Didn't go so well - no, I didn't get beaten up for taking photos of people! It just felt really weird and like I was committing a horrible crime, even though it's perfectly legal in a public place.

My girlfriend kicked off a bit too, when I photographed a Clown with two kids who were hitting eachother with their balloons. She reckons it's illegal to photograph children in a public place without consent, but not if used for personal use.

..Maybe I'll just leave this Street Photography for now.. Just seems to be far too much hassle for what it's worth in today's disgustingly PC environment.

FFS I'm a 19 yr old lad taking photos with my GF. I'm hardly a terrorist/peadophile!

So I went into Town today for Lunch with my girlfriend and to do some Street Photography. Didn't go so well - no, I didn't get beaten up for taking photos of people! It just felt really weird and like I was committing a horrible crime, even though it's perfectly legal in a public place.

My girlfriend kicked off a bit too, when I photographed a Clown with two kids who were hitting eachother with their balloons. She reckons it's illegal to photograph children in a public place without consent, but not if used for personal use.

..Maybe I'll just leave this Street Photography for now.. Just seems to be far too much hassle for what it's worth in today's disgustingly PC environment.

FFS I'm a 19 yr old lad taking photos with my GF. I'm hardly a terrorist/peadophile!

I know exactly what you mean. It's a sad world we live in.

It's terrible that 10 years ago, we'd never have this problem. It's all down to the media portraying anyone taking photos in public are taking them for the wrong reasons..

I mean, c'mon - If I were a terrorist/peadophile do they think I'd be so open about taking them? I'd be hid in a bush with a telephoto lens!  :grin:

Been talking to my mother about it who was very strongly against me taking photos of people in people, specifically children. *sigh*  :undecided:

It's a nice motor as it's 30 years old this year and has never had any work done on it (40K miles I think now). It's only an 850cc though so it's god damn slow! 0-60 is 30secs or something insane.

Post by: bobotheclown on 01 February 2009, 23:48
if you can afford them Manfrotto's are excellent tripods. Here's a deal but shop around to get best price. Note that tripods of this quality always come as the tripod only and then you get a suitable head for your needs/preference.

http://www.fotosense.co.uk/manfrotto-055xdb-tripod-manfrotto-804rc2-head.html
Title: Re: The Photography Thread, back again by popular demand!
Post by: jamie_pyrite on 02 February 2009, 02:29
..Or buy a Red Snapper tripod! Just as good quality as the Manfrottos, better quality than Jessops and other brands and WAY cheaper than a same-spec manfrotto/velbon.

If you google for the red snapper tripod, there's tons of great reviews on it. I bought one a few weeks ago and it's been absolutely fantastic. For about £70 delivered it came with a posh leather carrying bag and a 3 way head :)

EDIT: http://www1.clikpic.com/Redsnapper/photo_3193393.html

Here you go.

If you look on TalkPhotography forum, the guy that sells those tripods does a special deal for the forum so you get it at discount price!



But, if you have the money for a posh Manfrotto tripod, go for it! *poor student*  :grin:

Done some photos of my friend charlie last nite

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v127/zippypockets/Portraits/cp3.jpg)


She is a Suicide Girl and basically is going to put me in contact with a few of her friends/other SG girls so I can do some photos of them as well which is safe, if the sets get accepted by Suicide girls I can make £250 a set  :wink: which would be safe and should produce some interesting photos :wink:

yeah i agree, i used the soft focus what ever you want to call it to cover up a bit of noise that was there the ISO was just a bit to high but practise makes perfect as they say, next wk end will be doing the 'Sexy photos' lol  :grin:

New lens on the way YAY!!!!

Well I had some money going.. By that, I mean an interest free student overdraft  :grin: So I managed to get a Sigma 24-70 EX DG Macro with f2.8 all the way through the range for £220!! :D These are £430 in Jacobs.

I can't wait for it to arrive! Very excited :)

It was the closest lens to what I was looking for. Ideally an 18-70, with 2.8 throughout would have been perfect, but such a lens doesn't exist :( So I settled for 24mm at the widest. I've always got my Sigma 10-20 EX DG for the landscape shots! :)

I ordered a load of stuff for my camera two weeks ago. The monopod, anti-static cloth and cleaning solution turned up yesterday. Only problem is they sent me the wrong monopod and charged me the extra £55 it costs and sent the wrong anti-static cloth too.

Have wasted time on the phone and just finished wrapping them to send back with cover letter and copy of receipt. First time something like this has happened and pretty annoyed they could screw up like that.

/rant

Haven't had the time to take any pictures lately. :sad: Things are so sh!t atm.

That's not goot at all Evil :( I hope you're not having to pay delivery fees for sending it back! You should request free delivery for your troubles too.

Hope it all gets sorted and you get a chance to get out with your monopod!

After speaking to them they said I need to send a cover letter explaining the situation and ask for refund of goods AND postage. I better get it back or I'll be pissed off. Don't think I'll be using them again anyway. Just for reference it's Bristol Cameras.

Heading off shortly to get it posted. Then need to write another letter to Bristol Cameras confirming how much it cost to send the items back.

Those things are great when you're using a compact camera!! :D I've got a couple of them. Tried using it with my SLR once and it just fell over  :grin:

Great photo though! Imagine how quickly you could clean your car..


I remember seeing a layered photo where someone took a picture of him and his friend sat in their room, then layered a bottle of ketchup all over the room.. End result was something like 100 bottles of ketchup everywhere! :D


New lens is incredible. SO heavy though! I may weigh it later. Having f2.8 across the whole range is amazing :) I'll get some pictures up soon!

Number of Mega Pixels are irrelavant these days. Anything over 6 is fine and dandy. The white balance for me is fine but that kind of thing is matter of personal opinion. To change it have a look in your manual, some compacts don't let yo take it out of auto mode for white balance.

In summary, nice shots :-)

I'll think you'll find this occurs during very long or very short exposures Guy.

Title: Re: The Photography Thread, back again by popular demand!
Post by: bobotheclown on 25 February 2009, 15:20
Can anyone explain to me the law of reciprocity and under which circumstances it might fail? :)

Put simply:

In photography and holography, reciprocity refers to the inverse relationship between the intensity and duration of light that determines exposure of light-sensitive material. Within a normal exposure range for film stock, for example, the reciprocity law states that the film reponse will be determined by exposure = intensity × time. Therefore, the same response (for example, the optical density of the developed film) can result from reducing duration and increasing light intensity, and vice versa.

The reciprocal relationship is assumed in most sensitometry, for example when measuring a Hurter and Driffield curve (optical density versus logarithm of total exposure) for a photographic emulsion. Total exposure of the film or sensor, the product of focal-plane illuminance times exposure time, is measured in lux seconds.

For most photographic materials, reciprocity is valid with good accuracy over a range of values of exposure duration, but becomes increasingly inaccurate as we depart from this range: reciprocity failure, reciprocity law failure, or Schwarzschild effect.[1] As the light level decreases out of the reciprocity range, the increase in duration required to produce an exposure becomes higher than the formula states; for instance, at half of the light required for a normal exposure, the duration must be more than doubled for the same result. Multipliers used to correct for this effect are called reciprocity factors (see model below).

During very long exposures, film responds less than usual. Light can be considered to be a stream of discrete photons, and a light-sensitive emulsion is composed of discrete light-sensitive grains, usually silver halide crystals. Each grain must absorb a certain number of photons in order for the light-driven reaction to occur and the latent image to form. In particular, if the surface of the silver halide crystal has a cluster of approximately four or more reduced silver atoms, resulting from absorption of a sufficient number of photons (usually a few dozen photons are required), it is rendered developable. At low light levels, i.e. few photons per unit time, photons impinge upon each grain relatively infrequently; if the four photons required arrive over a long enough interval, the partial change due to the first one or two are not stable enough to survive before enough photons arrive to make a permanent latent image center.

This breakdown in the linear relationship between aperture and shutter speed is known as reciprocity failure. Each different film "emulsion" has a different response to long exposure. Some films are very susceptible to reciprocity failure, and others much less so. Some films that are very light sensitive at normal illumination levels and normal exposure times lose much of their sensitivity at long exposure times, becoming effectively "slow" films for long exposures. Conversely some films that are "slow" under normal exposure duration retain their light sensitivity better at long exposures. Compared at very long exposure times, Kodak's T-Max 100 speed film is faster than the nominally four-times faster Tri-X 400. Most film manufacturers publish reciprocity corrections.

For example, for a given film, if a light meter indicates a required EV of 5 and the photographer sets the aperture to f/11, then ordinarily a 4 second exposure would be required; a reciprocity correction factor of 1.5 would require the exposure to be extended to 6 seconds for the same result. Reciprocity failure generally becomes significant at exposures of longer than about 1 sec and below about 1 ms for film, and above 30 sec for paper.

Reciprocity also breaks down at extremely high levels of illumination with very short exposures. This is concern for scientific and technical photography, but rarely to general photographers, as exposures significantly shorter than a millisecond are only required for subjects such as explosions and particle physics experiments, or when taking high-speed motion pictures with very high shutter speeds (1/10,000 sec or less).

Innit.

I went to a local meet the other night, was told it would be in an indoor carpark with lighting for some photos, they switched the lights off when we got there! So we went up onto the rooftop of the carpark where they hadn't switched them off (but the lights were VERY yellow!)

I struggled massively to get good shots.. Plus my camera kept freezing while it was saving the long exposure shots.. So I had to take the camera off the tripod to pop the battery out and back in  :rolleyes: very annoying!


Well here's a couple of the ones that came out alright-ish.. I just found it so hard to balance the light against the redness that appeared in long exposures.. I was using an off-camera flash too but it just wasn't doing much..

The long time saving issue is important Jamie. It's doing it's noise reduction. Essentially it shoots the shot for say 5 secs as you set it and then it shoots the back of the shutter (Black) for the same amount of time. It then uses the two shots to reduce noise.

As for the car park stuff coloured lights are a faf. You know the score with the white balance (shoot something white and use that as a basis for setting it up custome style). Other than that there's not much you can do to combat it. Off camera flash is ace look up the strobist blog as that has loads of useful info.

Sorry Horney, I meant it actually freezes permanently. As in, if I left my camera for 20 minutes it'd still just be a black screen with the red read/write light on.

Do you have any more info about setting custom WB? I've heard you mention it a couple of times but not sure what I'm supposed to do! I generally just shoot in Auto on the camera then sort it out in Lightroom.

Went with my friend today for a lesson with her and her horse to take some piccys, heres a good one of them. It is slightly out of focus but the horses head is in focus, do you guys think it looks OK? Plus Ive done it in greyscale because the horse is grey anyway and it generally looks better!  :laugh:

Its a big initial outlay, but I guess if you get good you can always make some money off of it. I'm happy just using my compact camera at the moment (plus the other half wont be impressed if I go out and spend a ridiculous amount on a camera when we are saving for a house!)

I would deffo be interested in doing a photography course though, evening school or something.

That's what I'll plan on doing in the future, but not yet, I'll use this camera for now, then get something abit more uprated before spending money on an SLR.

imo just go straight for the DSLR option and don't go for another compact... also get yourself on a course if you do get a DSLR as it will teach you so much more so much quicker and you can benefit from those around you and learn from them too

Guys, here are a few Ive taken of my friends horse but the quality isn't very good! The light wasn't very good, just wondering if there is anything I can do with these ones to make them better? Ive edited them a fair bit but is there anything else I can do other than taking more pics?

am going to have another go next time I am at my dad's house (where I took the photos) and see if I can get a shot in the morning

my personal fave is the robin.. although I have been too lazy to edit out the shadow and would prefer it if he wasn't on a fat ball  :sad:

Thanks Guy.

Nice detail in your shots. I took pictures of birds on bird feeders to start with for practice but prefer the more natural look.

Have found spot metering is good for bird photography.

there is a cheat for natural looking feeder shots...

get a reasonably sized branch... preferably with a bit of moss in it, place it in a clamp about 2 or 3 meters away from the feeders and make sure that the background is a natural one like a bush or tree... you can then use a wider aperture to enhance the depth of field and have the bird perched on the branch perfectly in focus...

either use a hide or a remote trigger for the camera on a tripod - the birds will use the perch to await their turn on the feeder and make sure everything is safe (it might take up to two weeks)

has anyone here tried digiscoping?

i got that from a birdwatching magazine... set the perch up about 2 weeks before you intend to take the photos... that way the little feathered chaps will get used to it... and you can see how they are using it, specifically, where they are landing on it  :wink:

Awesome, I have to get me one these. How are you firing the camera though, and what settings are you using as you obviously can't adjust the shots on the fly.

I assume you set your focus point first then go on the move.
Title: Re: The Photography Thread, back again by popular demand!
Post by: the_stink on 03 April 2009, 09:07
well with these shots they are in manual focus so before i set off i get the car in focus, Ive just bought a wireless remote so i have a remote that fires the camera which is cool and cost about £20 setting wise is in shutter priority ISO 100 and been playing with different exposures between 2.4 and 6 seconds think the longer the exposure the more blur dependign how fast the car crawls forward but the only problem with the long exposures is the picture might allso get over exposed, i was shooting these in a underground car park as i tried some in the day light and htey were just too bright, waiting for my ND filter to come through and then try some outdoor ones :) but I love the Rig cost £325 but worth it !!
Title: Re: The Photography Thread, back again by popular demand!
Post by: Komenda on 03 April 2009, 10:10

I'll have to buy a longer remote.

The contrast on those two shots is exceptional though, but I can imagine the longer exposures are going to be tricky. I generally shoot all my motorsport stuff with a polarizer as it cuts out the reflection and makes cars appear clearer as you can see through windows etc. This takes it down a couple of stops so may be ideal for this sort of thing.

A couple of pics I took in Rome when I was out there about a fortnight ago. I just used my Panasonic Lumix FX 55, but I really want to get into photography and do a course when funds and time allow. Needless to say, I have fiddled with them in PS but havent changed much:

yeah in a nut shell ;) as ive found that using some hdr programs doesnt give the desired effect with this you can tweak it jsut how you want it use as many layers as you want etc, just gives you more control over the end result  :wink:

The camera comes with some editing software but Photoshop Elements would be a good thing to buy. You can pick it up for around £50.

That or I'm sure you can find Photoshop CS3 for free somewhere. :wink:

photoshop is one way... or lightroom 2 is also a good buy... i use it for everything... although I tend not to process using HDR techniques too much in CS4.

I'm with Guy on Lightroom 2, a fantastic program! It's all I use for processing my RAW files (all I shoot in) quickly and efficiently with excellent results! I love some of the cool stuff you can do with it too. If you've got a powerful computer/graphics then it's brilliant!

Good images Bob. Do you have an exposure lock on your camera?

I've read that what makes prime lenses so sharp is that they're easier to build as they don't zoom so they can spend more time making them sharp at the one focal length. I'm tempted to buy one but don't know if it's really worth it as I like my current three lenses.
Title: Re: The Photography Thread, back again by popular demand!
Post by: bobbarley on 20 April 2009, 23:09
I have the option of using a remote for shutter speed, if that's what you mean? I don't have a remote though, those pictures were at something like 1/80.  The prime lens I have goes as low as F1.7, which is the reason I bought it.  Set me back £100!

You can keep the focus yes but the exposure would remain the same. With the exposure lock you can take another reading once adjusted to avoid overexposure in some cases. I've found it can be useful.

only the 1st one has had a little editing because it was under exposed...

its a real shame that the focus is ever so slightly out with this shot... you have the top part of the wing in focus and the antennae..

use spot focus or manual focus and focus on the eyes if possible... or increase your aperture to something like f8 until you have the whole body in focus but can still blur the background to some extent

tips with butterflies...
use a macro lens if you have one
if you are out in the open then approach quietly and slowly making sure that you do not cast a shadow over the butterfly
consider either off camera flash or a fill in flash to really bring out the detail and highlight their iridescence
change your angle if possible so that you are low down if you cannot get a 'wings open' shot... the butterfly will look more imposing
go to a butterfly house of which there are several around the UK

blinder of a shot there nick... I think that is one of your best portraits ever imo

that nifty 50 is proving to be a cracking lens

like the lighting and low down angle... this might have left the chin a little over exposed though  :undecided:

have you diffused the area around the subjects jacket?
 

Title: Re: The Photography Thread, back again by popular demand!
Post by: Horney on 24 April 2009, 10:23
I'm not that keen on it to be honest. The flash was too low (as per your chin comment) and the jacket is poop because of my bad PS skills at removing the shadow that was cast against the wall.

THat wouldn't have helped as she was no more than 2 feet from the wall. Ideally I'd have put another strobe behind her pointing at the wall on full power to blow out any shadows but I didn't have one with me.

faster shutter speed. or set to shutter priority if you want a small focus (or large)
Title: Re: The Photography Thread, back again by popular demand!

Cheers pal, I had it in Auto mode and it was taking the pic pretty quick, but I'll try Shutter Priority mode next time and increase the speed it's taken :)

this might not help you as the darker half of your photo is perfectly well exposed... so if you increase the shutter speed for the backlight then the front part of your photo will be very dark

there are ways around this

have a look at the HDR techniques mentioned in one of the stickies, also consider exposing for the sky but using fill in flash with exposure compensation to illuminate the front part of your photo.. alternatively photoshop or lightroom2 are your friend  :wink:

Also do you sharpen them? Sharpening isn't a way of cheating focus BTW. It's just that digital cameras are a little soft by they're design so a slight sharpen is always a good thing.

It's amazing what you can see from your own window!!  Just got this shot a minute ago, it's like two seasons in the same view!  I only had to sharpen the photo, and frame it, came out perfectly.  Kit lens too!

thanks chaps... that was in northern cyprus... it was a bit windy so i had to be patient

the little fellas wings were beating so fast they looked like a blur in aperture mode so i switched to manual and bumped the shutter speed up to 1/2000

all the exif an larger sizes can be found on my flickr...

Fantastic photo Guy! What lens were you using for that?

How on earth was that taken at 55mm and f5.6?! The DOF looks too shallow!
Title: Re: The Photography Thread, back again by popular demand!
Post by: Guy on 07 June 2009, 11:43
helped by the fact that there was nothing in the immediate background but scrub i suppose... although another thistle is blown way out of focus so I can't really answer that

the lens is a smc PENTAX-DA 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 AL II - so for all you Pentax bashers it isn't too bad after all!!  :tongue:

Post by: Shady Pioneer on 14 June 2009, 19:22
how did you get the tripod to stay so still? when i tried it it just went Sh!t lol

I wedged one leg in the gap between the back seat and where you sit, the other in the 60/40 gap, and the front leg was just extra support. I won't lie, ALOT of my pictures came out blurry, the shutter speed I used was 1.6 I believe, but what I did was literally keep pressing the remote to get a picture every other second, that was one of two out of 176 that were good haha!

did you just use a really quick shutter speed with a flash?
Title: Re: The Photography Thread, back again by popular demand!
Post by: Horney on 17 June 2009, 08:46
Bang on mate!

Exposure:     0.006 sec (1/160)
Aperture:    f/9.0
Focal Length:    35 mm
ISO Speed:    100

I then had the flash (Big fella, not the built in one) set to manual and cranked it up a notch at a time till I was happy. Without the flash the shot would have been really dark. In actual fact this shot was taken not far off midday in blazing hot sunshine!

great work Nick, with the fast shutter speed really give that moody feel to it and the fill flash works great :) I cant wait till i can get a decent speedlight!!! give it a month or two and ill get a 430exii its within my price range

thanks mate. looks brilliant. i'll have to get one of the additional flash units (i don't know what they are called lol) need to learn more about ISO and get some different filters...

fiddled about with the WB the other night so im learning a little about that...i need photoshop aswell lol

That's a sweet flash Joe. I've got a Sigma 430 EX DG Super which was the best I could afford at the time. Wish I'd waited really and got a pucka Canon one.

bloody hell Joe, why do you have to be so good!  :cry:  :grin:

Would you be up for writing any quick "How it's shot" guides on some of your photos mate? Everything always seems to be perfectly crisp, no noise and a nice colour, etc. when you take them and it's making me question where I'm going wrong
Title: Re: The Photography Thread, back again by popular demand!
Post by: the_stink on 20 June 2009, 23:45
cheers mate,

well with that photo it was shot with my 50mm prime, and it was literally a case of playing around with the settings ended up using :

F 1.8, 1/800, ISO 100

I wanted the wheel to be the main focal point so i used a low F number sure if you look at the exif stuff it will tell you and then just adjusted teh shutter speed until i got the right sort of lighting trail and error really and then just boosted the colour in PS and sorted the levels out  :wink: ive just read a book i bought called 'how to digitally photography cars' really helpful loads of pointers and tips and basicall got me thnking alot more about what im doing

im trying to get it 'right in camera' now as much as possible

I think I need to start using my fifty more often! It's taken a back seat since I got my sigma 2.8 24-70  :undecided:



Got a question for you guys as I know there's a few of you that have pulled it off perfectly. Could I get some good advice/info on how to do the shots of the driver on a long exposure? It's going to be my shot for July's photo competition for my local vw club :) The theme is "Perspective"  :shocked:

set your tripod up in the back of your car and set the shutter speed to 1" may need a ND filter if its during the day time

here are a few more

By no means the best photo (was taken on my OLD Sony 3.2MP camera a while ago now) but watched a program on Concorde on BBC4 last night and it reminded me of this photo. Used to fly over our house every day a 5:10 on the dot, no matter where you where in the house you would hear her, she has been sorely missed :(

According to my computer it was taken 30 July 2003.

That's Ben ex-of Grebo right?  And Toby was the singer in a band I can't remember the name of...I thought I recognise his gallery of pictures (tattoos in my stupid little world).

Ahhhh AKO that was it.  You know Blake you drummed for Grebo at all?

I'm not sure if Ben will remember me, but I am friends with the guys in Gafftape and Blake and I used to watch Grebo fairly often (all those years ago).  He's grown into a fine young man by the looks of him. 

Whats your band called man, you playing anytime soon?

I know they still chat to blake, i saw gaff tape a few times yrs ago at the fleece but yeah that was a good 5/6 yrs ago haha

my badn is www.myspace.com/firstfailureuk (http://www.myspace.com/firstfailureuk) but we are changing our name to 'Out Of Bounds' we are playing the croft on the 24th July and the 4th sept :)

May try to pop along to that, I'll see if the bassist of Gafftape (yes they're still playing occasionally) with me.  He's in a new band called Cars On Fire and I'm sure they're always looking for bands to play with.

And this great shot of my friend doing the long jump in 1990. Nikon F301, 105mm f2.5, 1/1000th @ F8, 400ISO Fujicolour. Blemishes removed and slightly cropped, scan of original print.

...and this is my Dad, taken for a photo competition at the local camera club. I was not a member, just a guest and ended up coming second which REALLY p!ssed off the club members. 1/500 @ f5.6, Kodak Tri-X 400 film, Nikon F301 & 80-200mm f4 zoom. It's my favourite portrait shot of all time.

Post by: Shady Pioneer on 20 August 2009, 13:28
I'd say it would be better if the cloud/sky image faded completely towards the left, so the wheel would be the main focus (solid). So ay diagnoally from the bottom right up to the other corner, just as you got past the centre cap, it start becoming solid.


But it's a good image, nice idea :)

IMO the colour version is much better, as you get the impact from the tat, I'd probably mask off the tat and play around with the colours in that so that it has more of an impact.

very surreal, and almost look fake.  The top one and bottom two, look like they could have been shot in a studio (with a photo backdrop) as the background is so flat, but that makes Jess really pop out.

Looks like you're getting on well with the new gear :afro:

The first one, maybe different times, e.g midnight, 1 o'clock, 2 o'clock etc to show the real passing of time

one of my watch photos

60 second exposure

I'd crop and rotate this, taking out most of the right hand side empty space, you could probably apply a bit of additional sharpening too

(http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4036/4619746008_48088bcc9d.jpg)

some nice spring type scenes, lots of green, but it's still quite flat; mabye boost the greens and increase the contrast, an amber filter in PS would bring them out too

(http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4022/4622263308_2bb1c284e5.jpg)

very nice

I've got a full version of photomatrix, if you want send me the files and the settings xml and i'll do you one without the watermark

Lovely scene, like the graduation of the blues in the sky, take it you're on a PL filter

Stink, good work as usual :afro:

Have you considered a flash behind you to really light up the back drop to give it a nice white instead of the muted grey from the falloff light?

It's the Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G (http://imaging.nikon.com/products/imaging/lineup/lens/af/micro/af-s_vr_micro-nikkor_105mmf_28_if/index.htm) I actually went for it as a portrait / close up lens; I'd been asked to do the photos at a friend's wedding, so wanted something fast as flashes weren't allowed in the church; which was an excuse to spend some money on new glass  :laugh:

ooooo really like these nice and bright the sort of thing i would love to have framed and on my wall

Cheers!! That's my thinking too, I've got loads of images I personally like, but that I wouldn't necessarily have on the wall, so hoping to get some more images like these and then get them put onto canvas.

Hardest thing I've tried to do in some time - getting the flavour of the event.  Especially as the event started at 05:00hrs.  First boat finished around 09:30 apparently.

Got a fair bit of video of the event, too.  That gives a better idea of the absurd number of competitors.

I'd have a play around with those gnome pics by going black and white and increasing the contrast. Could look a little haunting.

Also don't be afraid to get down low to take shots e.g the dog. Try to get a shot from their eye-level  :smiley:

A couple of raindrop shots I took in Florida during a thunderstorm. Lighting's not great and they could be sharper (they're quite heavily cropped and blown - up and I think  the camera focussed on the rail rather than the drop and that's understandable) but they look kinda cool. Any suggestions on how to shoot these better? Fill in flash?

messing around with shutter speed and a torch last night. started outside with a big torch and a wheel

(http://i51.tinypic.com/v5l8q9.jpg)

but there was too much light so the camera picked up the wheel witout the need for the torch.

moved inside to avoid the neighbours light pollution and moved onto a wine bottle. this was done using a single led bike light (as in the sort to be seen with, not to see with)

(http://i56.tinypic.com/2d4aw6.jpg)

quite like the reflection in that one.

next moved onto my new bike (i say new, it dated back to 92.)  here i have tried to use the torch to highlight certain aspects of the bike. in this case the front wheel
(http://i56.tinypic.com/o6emti.jpg)

bike again but with the bigger led torch. this is my fave

(http://i56.tinypic.com/1zgf1bn.jpg)

then spotted my dog and thought, "why not"

(http://i51.tinypic.com/20syvkm.jpg)

not keen on all the light trails in that but like how pissed off she looks!

First go at light painting. Conditions weren't ideal as the garage lets some natural day light in, i don't have a tripod either so had the rest the camera on anything I could find. Also space is very limited and I couldn't move the car.

On my christmas list :) problems is there is no room in the garage to get the right shot which is made even harder with no tripod! Just mucking around and was reasonably pleased with the shot. Wish I had lit up the BMW indicator part though.

Thanks jeynesey, I'd have liked to have been higher to have gotten more of the reflection in, but that wasn't possible.

We went to a display, took my camera but forgot the battery  :cry: :grin:

I've not forgotten a battery so far, but I did forget the quick release plate for my tripod once  :lipsrsealed:

Photo wise I've got this from today

Title: Re: The Photography Thread, back again by popular demand!
Post by: the_stink on 03 December 2010, 19:26

A couple of new ones since I upgraded my camera body to a Sony Alpha 350.
Both shot with kit lens (18-70mm), but first (my 4month old baby) one shot in B&W on camera, absolutely no editing. Second one shot in colour in a dark rehearsal studio (hence high ISO and grainy) and edited in Bridge, converted to B&W.

little too much noise in the first 2 for me due to the 1600 iso

was f4 the largest aperture you could use?

i think dropping the f stop and the iso to around 400 would give you the result you needed :undecided:
Title: Re: The Photography Thread, back again by popular demand!
Post by: Stronz on 24 March 2011, 23:30
Whoa there tiger, youll need to go a bit slower than that!

Lowering my ISO will help reduce noise right? And only really needs to be bumped up in low light conditions?

In terms of the f stop, increasing this will bring more into focus.

I wasn't joking when i said I was a beginner :embarassed:!

Ben having a play about again this evening. Mainly messing about with shutter speeds and ISO settings so I can understand them a bit better.

for better results (IQ) over expose high ISO shots buy around 1/3 of a stop then pull the exposure back in camera raw, also check out exposing to the right (and left) to exploit the way the digital sensor captures a scene.

as a rule of thumb yes, but if you starting playing with camera raw then it's not always true  :wink:

In terms of the f stop, increasing this will bring more into focus.

here's the pitfall with aperture, the larger the number the smaller the aperture, so when someone says a bigger aperture they normally mean a lower f number e.g. f/2 instead of f/4

a smaller aperture (smaller opening / bigger number) will bring more into focus / give you a greater depth of field

everyone starts somewhere!

lowering the f stop will allow more light in so you can use a lower iso.


differnt cameras handle high iso differntly, for example my old d2h is a joke at anything over 800 iso

at the end of the day if its too dark for you to capture the image how you want it without using a tripod then you need to be using flash

Thanks Shep / Ridge,

Im gonna try a similar shot again tonight with a lower ISO (400) and a lower f stop and see what I can come up with.

Thanks for the link too Shep - just what I am after. There is a group on Flickr too which meet up in my local area who are trying to organise a bit of a begginers course, so I am hoping to join in with them once I am back from my honeymoon and have some free time.

I love the challenges associated with shooting into the sun - it's a piece of p1ss to shoot away from it, but shooting into it, to capture the stunning views you get is quite tough  :cool:

Yeah it was handheld - mainly because the other half thinks I am enough of a pr*ck taking photos of my xbox controller without the use of my tripod  :grin:

I wanted to keep the image dark so the controller was bathed in the light from the TV...sort of to give the impression of an all night games session where you finish at 3am with your retinas burning... lol

Ladybug (http://www.flickr.com/photos/stronz/5564163866/) by The_Stronz (http://www.flickr.com/people/stronz/), on Flickr

Did a bit of gardening this morning after the motor racing, and saw this little fella. Could have really done with a macro lens I guess, but used PS to crop into the original shot. Admittedly, I kept the camera in auto as the ladybug was pretty lively and I didnt have much time before it zoomed off.

I might have a go at converting to B+W and only having the red showing through, but the other half is moaning at me to do something useful!

Went out tonight to try some light trails but there wasn't much traffic about and judging by some of my results, need to do a bit more reading.

Walking back home though I tested the tilt-shift effect on the camera and was quite happy with the result. Shall be experimenting with this a bit more I think...

Well, I first saw it on YouTube about a year ago - some dude had shot a whole days worth of shots and did a stop motion in New York, making the whole place look like a model village going through a day's cycle. There is a whole technique to it....but to tell you the truth, I just took the shot and selected an effect on the camera, so mine is all post production. Obviously works best if you are up high and looking down onto your subject.

Yeah I have already gone thorugh a list of excuses they are going to throw at me to try and get out of it! Everything is backed up on Time Machine, so all should be good (hopefully) All important data is saved to my NAS anyway, so its just a nuisance really. Above all i want to edit my photos! Have viewed them on the telly and I think I have my entry for this months comp.

Had an attempt at adding a lomo effect to this one - need more practice or some better guidelines to follow I think. The unedited version is my entry for this months comp.

Not a very good photo, but I thought I'd chuck a little pic of my bass set up.

When I'm next in the studio, I'll try and get some of my guitar rig and my drums.

increased the yellow on a hue saturation layer, added a 50% grey layer then used calculations on the blue to create a mask for the sky, duplicated the layer gaussian blue 5 pixel changed to soft light blending mode, shadows/highlights then add a new layer set to multiply draw on a gradient to darken the top part of the sky.

very true, both do this much quicker, and you've got post crop vignette in both; PS gives you much more control other the darkening / lightening

If it was actually my image then I'd have added the gradient in CR (during the raw conversion stage).

Loads of ways to skin a cat though.

Only just getting round to having a look at the photos I took on my honeymoon at the beginning of the month. Here are a few from Singapore (hopefully loads more to follow, along with shots from Bali!). Had a great time and really allowed me to experiment with the camera.

Now this is my first attempt at a self portrait using off camera flash. Could have done with another flash and trigger to fire from the other side to conteract the shadows. But will have to wait for those!

or you can make a home made snoot / diffuser / softbox from some cardboard and an old milk bottle, fully blue peter style but will work  :smiley:

but a light stand and brolly can be had quite cheap from ebay about £35 for both i rekon you could get it for dude

for hard light I prefer the flash to be at more of an angle so that you get a more dramatic look, basically where you've got it but if you were looking at the camera, a stand is helpful too as you can have the flash head height.  Great first attempt though :afro:

Back end of Sept car with four people in it = £40-50 return.

Probably sort a house for Friday & Saturday night for 8-10 people for £20 per person and the workshop should be operational for any repairs over the weekend, too.  :grin:

I can definitely put together an itinerary for some spectacular shooting locations, too.

Shot in RAW and think (due to a lack of filters) exposed the sky correctly in camera so pulling back the foreground was touch. I should have balanced it more making RAW editing either. Also elements 9 can't do selective RAW editing.

Another from tonight with on camera flash:

sorry  :embarassed:

Yeah really really please with this one! This was shot with my 50D / 50mm prime, had the 120cm Octa softbox pointing at the model camera left and the reflector brolly camera right adding in some fill/ hair light(which you can see as ive cropped it)

This was shot in a Studio down the road from me, loved it there defo going t use it again think its £15 for an hour! and thanks to my friend Ami who did the make up she is awesome! Do love working with a MUA as it really can transform the person, the problem is with most girls the have this thing about 'doing thier own makeup' which is fine but when I want to do bold and striking stuff well its easier if a MUA does it!

There's no real way of giving you a link but one of the comments says it's on explore. If you check the stats for that photo then click on the flickr link which shows how many views though flickr you'll see one of the referers is something like Explre 7 days or something like that.

Thanks Joe. I tend to always set out with an objective and that evening it was to go out in the evening (soft light) and capture a shot like that. I think I was quite successful!

Anyway the cats found this little fella in the garden so rushed for my camera, I only had a brief moment with it.

I think it needs a bit more contrast/clarity on the tattoo. Are you trying to make a feature of the tattoo or not?
The problem is that it competes with her face for your attention
On her cheek, is that a serious dimple or a pock mark, I'd probably run the "heal" brush over that to make the cheek smoother.
There's also a mark on her back level with her armpit that I would remove.
Also there's something about the angle her eyes are looking out at the camera, but that might be how her eyes are naturally.
Title: Re: The Photography Thread, back again by popular demand!
Post by: Jack3559 on 30 June 2011, 18:02
I think it's most likely a scar from a cheek piercing.

Took this one on Sunday (only just getting around to posting up pics to Flickr). It's a bit of a rough edit at the moment but I am too tired to improve it tonight.

Air Horn 221 (http://www.flickr.com/photos/stronz/5935453116/) by The_Stronz (http://www.flickr.com/people/stronz/), on Flickr

Ideally needed a longer zoom lens (other than the 18-55) and am now looking to get a monopod. In hindsight, practicing panning on F1 cars wasn't a great idea....should have started with something a bit slower!

Feedback welcome and the rest of the set (so far) is here for anyone interested: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjviwB4p

I had a peek around the BRDC members car park which was interesting. They will go up too soon.

the majority of your car shots are all dead centre, if you compare this to;

http://www.flickr.com/photos/stronz/5934891901/in/set-72157627064763153

the car has plenty of room to move into so has a strong suggested movement and direction, the others looks quite static, try a crop on them and see if you prefer the result  :smiley:

the air horn is probably the best out the bunch, i'd probably increase the red slightly as it's quite orangey at the moment.

I would have used a slightly slower shutter speed to get some nice motion blur to give the picture a feeling of the speed they travel!

Will try re-cropping a few tonight (still have loads I havent even sorted through yet).

Having done no photography in the past I bought an old secondhand eos 300d for my honeymoon, which the auto focus died after 2 days so had to manual focus over 2000 photos  :( however I started playing and over 2 weeks started to self teach myself. let me know what you think of this small selection. none are edited as thats what I'm going to teach myself next when Imy iMac tuns up in a week or so.

I enjoyed taking photo's and playing so much I've just ordered a EOS 60D also. Hope you enjoy, any comments on where to improve what I can do to make better please say, I won't take it to heart.... much.  Considering I was teaching myself on the fly over 2 weeks and manual focus through a crap eyepiece I don't think I done too bad!

I don't like the view of the car in all those shots (sorry).

It's a human view, you're looking down on it.  I prefer being level with, or lower than the car.  It just works better for me, subjectively.

it was waaaay to shallow as i was playing with extension tubes so is hard to get a decent dof and focus right, but i quite liked how this shot came out if a little abstract :grin:

It's very easy to fall into the preset trap, although some of them are a very good starting point.

Lay off the vignetting, TJG.   :tongue:

There was an article on Digital Photography School recently about people going over the top with effects like that.  Let the photo breath for itself a bit more, instead of murdering it out with over-blown post-processing.

colours on this are really good, you might want to drop the strength/detail (IIRC) slider down to remove the halo effect on the clouds, alternative is to tidy it up in PS, but otherwise a cracking HDR effort.

hey im still learning it all too :wink:  main thing i try to remember is visualise the picture you want before snapping away.

for example the cottage pic above, what was the reason for the photo? whats it showing?

ive found i have to control my urge to just shoot anything and everything and slow down a little and think about what i want to acheive

This is something I think is very important. For those who have started off taking photos on film, it's easier, because you always had a limit of 24 or 36 shots before your film ran out. So you had to think about it before firing the shutter.
Use the viewfinder, it does show you more or less what you're shooting. Put your eye to the viewfinder, and move the camera left, right, up, down, change your angle, crouch, step to the side, zoom in or out until you get a good shot.
You can of course (with no limits on shots) just take a photo from every position, but you need to understand what makes a shot good and why one angle on something is better than another angle on the same thing.

A local warehouse burnt down the other day, place was huge (it was still being dowsed down even 3 days later). I was going to grab a couple of moody pics of the wreckage but the demolitions people have rather speedily removed the whole lot!  :angry: Bang goes my idea... an empty concrete yard doesn't look particularly interesting

Epic light/mist combo this morning so I went out early to get a few shots of the bimmer. Just a really quick mono edit on this one but I liked how it turned out, will post the rest later on sometime.

Unfortunately my proper camera has been out of action for a while now, so it's shot on a cameraphone with the colours tweaked on PS.

They're always taking off from there when the weather is nice so I will try and get a proper one before it gets too grim.

Tis awesome and shows you have some PS colour tweaking skills, other than the obligatory 'desaturate then adjust the colour levels' (which is about all I can do sucessfully). Credit where credit's due, I really like it.

I did have a play with posterising a self portrait, looks rather flat but I didnt play with the levels:

Much better, but too much vignette on the sides.

I'd also agree that it needs to have been shot from lower down to get a bit more perspective/distance in the shot.
What you've got there is a good edit of the shot, but with hindsight you can see that trying the same shot from 3 shooting heights would have provided you with better options. That shot looks like it was taken standing, if you'd also shot from say waist height, and then a lower shot from a low crouch. Each of those would have given more distance/perspective and eventually more sky.
Sometimes you only get one chance at a shot and you do the best you can, but when you have the time, shoot a scene from a couple of different angles to see which is better at editing stage.

Lucky guy! ;)
A weekend with a lady willing to have photos taken and THIS is what you post!   :grin:

The tats stand out, but you could do with a plain white background so that you stand out more. Or do something fancy in PS where the design of the wallpaper carries on onto your lady's skin becoming her tat, then your tattoo sleeve will jump out in colour.
Actually I'm sure the concept of a tattoo'd girl appearing from a patterned background has been done before, but this could be a nice twist.

Nope, it definately needs straightening up.
Take a look when lined up with the edge of a Window:
(http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h202/anotherdubfan/straightenup.jpg)

Boats do rock, but land doesn't so, I would always go to straighten for the horizon of the water, then if the boat's mast isn't straight, then it's fine.

Got my "new" 50mm lens today. My old one seized up with sand, so got myself a Minolta 50mm f1.7 AF RS lens, one of the last produced by Minolta before selling their camera business to Sony. Anyway, these lenses are supposed to be better than their newer Sony equivalents.

Just a test shot and quick edit, but I'm liking this lens alot. Really missed having a good 50mm prime.

Shot this yesterday lunchtime. Was out and about looking for an entry for this months comp, but wasn't entirley happy with any of my shots (didn't feel landscapey enough). I dont think it helped being out during teh day - the sky was a bit boring.

Nice. But I'd like it more if the spine of the leaf was central.

I disagree - i think the spine being off centre makes it a tad more interesting. Each to thier own I guess.

Nice.
Although it looks like you haven't done anything to correct the barrel distortion from the wide angle lens (I guess the Sigma 10-20mm), the low angle doesn't help and makes the wheels look out of proportion to the car body.
Title: Re: The Photography Thread, back again by popular demand!
Post by: the_stink on 18 November 2011, 16:56
yeah no lens correction done to this and was with the sigma, that's the only problem really is the distortion :p

Out and about in the woods... shot at dusk (very low light, obviously with no flash, shows how good the canon 50mm prime lens is!) Shot at ISO 1000.

A tripodor steadier hand would have been ideal as most came out a touch blurry.

Beautiful.

Are you still using tape at all, or have you moved onto digital?
Title: Re: The Photography Thread, back again by popular demand!
Post by: DubFan on 12 December 2011, 12:10
We still have tape machines around, eg:

But we've been on a digital playout (Radioman) system for nearly 7 years and when we move, we'll be swapping to another digital system called VCSdira.

Have you tried over exposing by about 1/3 and then pulling it back in RAW to reduce the noise?
