dave do you have pics of the card??
that looks cool in white
Not at the moment. I'll pop some off later.
I will be doing that with mine tomorrow for sure. That looks great!
Empty slots are no fun lol
Waiting on stuff...
How's that cooler working for you?
not sure it's hasn't made it inside yet
Very nice pictures. Do have your own backdrop or photo box or something like that?
Oh yeah, would also like to know how the temps and noise are on that card.
yea I grabbed a photo box makes all the difference in the world
Got a link to the one you bought?
BTW, I just got a new Panasonic DMC-FZ40 (I loved my FZ5). Waiting for the battery to charge now...
There are cheap versions on ebay (scroll down a bit). I have used poster board, foam board, and even white canvas to use as a backdrop. The lighting is the key
Poster board and lighting are what I use most often. I have two of these:
and I usually use GE Reveal 150W bulbs in them.
You sure you people are taking pictures of things and not growing stuff?
these bulbs have the wrong light color, you need either coolwhite (whiteblueblue) or warmwhite (whiteyellow). also, they are probably not natrium steam lamps, or even energy savers... only these would work, besides some prototype LED ones
pretty good idea with the selfmade photo booth, i may have to steal some nice ideas here!
The way of the future; tech and green paint? WOW...
Nah, don't do that stuff anymore...
I just like the color of them better. It seems if I use regular bulbs, the pictures turn out too warm, especially for taking pics of hardware. Anyway, I have a new camera I need to learn, and who knows - this one may like the warmer colors better...
sorry, i should have split that better
i meant that he needs other colors for growing!
your pictures are marvelous, and i cant say i understand much about taking photos other than that i can see if a pic is good quality or maybe edited!
looking forward for more!
Guys, just get a grey card and measure your white balance and away you go. Or don't and be creative.
Care to elaborate on that?
