Nice pics there Whilhelm
Open question to the forum : I have a large collection of older pics taken with my earlier cameras - anyone wanna see a few of my favorites? They are old and not nearly up to 2010 digital photo standards but there's a few I like.
I just don't want to flood the room with archive footage if its against the general rules/spirit of behavior ( Some forums ONLY want recent/topical postings - and I can understand where they are coming from.. )
I don't mind, as long as they are good. Please don't post like 9000+ pictures on one post though, it will take forever to load. Instead put 3-4 every post to spread the load between pages.
Do you think newegg will waive a restocking fee on the lens? its 15% or $56, plus I have to ship it back. The lens just doesn't work for what I do. To much limitiations with it.
Why don't you just ask? I am not sure about US, but in UK we can get a refund at full price within 7 days of purchase and all we do is to pay shipping.
I love your pro pics Wilhelm.
Windy summer sunset photo taken just 5 minutes ago:
I like the second photo a lot, you got the "third" rule right and also managed to get the rays too. Have you bought the CF card yet?
I still have to read about the third rule...
And I'm still using the 128MB card - I have to buy an 8 or 16GB one this week!
Lets use your photo to illustrate the "third" rule. Divide the image into 9 squares, like demonstrated ( not the perfect demo but I am too lazy to get it right). The red circles are where you would want your subjects placed, in this case, the sun. In this case, I would use the bottom right one as shown in the opaque red circle.
Adjusted so that the subject is on one of the crosses:
Thanks for the comments
Wha! Seriously? I just got on and they said no, they would do 10% restocking instead of 15%! now im pissed. They screwed me over on my xonar HDAV when I bought it and now this.
Ouch. Maybe next time if you want to try out a camera or lens, bite the bullet and hire it for a few days. Just see what is available in your area.
As for shopping for cameras and related bits, it seems the Newegg of photography that everyone recommends is either Adorama (http://www.adorama.com/) or B&H (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/) Sadly I don't live in the States so can't comment on their service. But they are the most recommended on photo forums.
And Black Panther, I see you are drawn to landscapes. I like what I see. Maybe if you get bored look into HDR (High dynamic range) photography. Think it might be up your alley.
Love your photos Whilhelm.
Nice photos folks.
getting my hands on an Olyumpus Pen E-PL1 with a Fisheye within the next few weeks just so i don't have to carry my XTI around.
Cool. those look fun. Old school photography as such.
yeah i still have my OG Olympus PenFT (dad gave it to me when i was 13) that I broke...and i've palyed with its digital counterpart...i love it.
I tried, I was only recommended one place and they didn't have it. Oh well live and learn. I also just bought a Audi a4 so thats one reason its going back .
Ok. If you pm what area you are in I can ask around on the photo forums.
And an A4 is definately a better toy.
My geo location is in location
No man. that is too obvious. How do you expect people to figure that out?
I'll see what I can find for you.
Please take some cool pics of the Audi a4
I will soon don't worry. Just got back from anniversary and i'll post pics of that. lots of birds from the rain forest museum
Hi guys im not a DSLR owner i have an old bridge camera a finepix s6500fd but i love it to bits to much to upgrade. n e way here are some of my best/favourite pics and id love to be part of the group
My son's little garden, first set of Sun Flowers
My apologies for the crappy pics...
What do you think is wrong in the following picture?
It's pitch dark, I used an ISO 1600 and rested the camera on a solid surface (I'm planning to buy a tripod).
The RAW image showed the lights all green.
I had to develop the image through Olympus manager to get it similar to what I had been seeing.
Yet the photo is still too dark compared to what I saw with my naked eye.
Adjusting the EV exposure through Olympus manager increased the noise and so didn't make it look good at all so I didn't do it.
I know the first suggestion would be to get a tripod to use with an ISO 1600, but then what else? The colours/noise isn't due to lack of tripod I guess...
Seen with the naked eye, the reflections in the sea are really bright, colorful and wide. But in the photo they look the opposite ie dull, lacking color and narrow/small.
You also need to have a wide aperture. Aperture is just like how your pupils dialate. The bigger the aperture, the more light the camera can take in.
Lenses can limit how large your aperture can be. My old lens was an 18-200mm which was great because you could take just about any picture with it, but it was weak in low-light because it had a fairly small maximum aperture.
