Title: Photography
Post by: jrock on Sep 24, 2009, 05:55:05 PM
I know quite a few of you out there are more than amateur but even us amateurs; What camera do you use? What lenses do you most often carry?

Please post a picture or two of your more favorite shots.  :beerchug:

Mini, how do those Sigma lenses compare with the Canon's?
They are way better IMO.
After using them for the last 5 years I feel like the Canon lenses are K-Mart specials.

Only hard thing to get used to is the zoom is reversed.

Next one I'm going to get is the 50mm fixed. Good for portraits.

I currently only have a Cannon Powershot, used to have several different 35mm SLR's like a Cannon AE-1, Minolta X-700 and a Mamiya Secor back in high school when when it was part of my major. Had several lens some very costly, from wide angle to zooms. Got away from it when I went into the service. Plus my major was in media so I was more into videography than photography. I actually used to help on one of cables original stations The E channel (not the current E Channel) which had a studio at Beverly Hills High. Most of these are on 35mm and I scanned them.

question for the photo guys.. im a graphic design major and really want a nice entry-level digital camera.  Obviously adjustable aperture and shutter speed are a must, id like something with good quality, etc. but being a college student i cant see spending more than about $300, so a middle-of-the-road type camera is in order.  Any ideas of some good cameras that fall into this category?

One of the ones I took this weekend.

25 second exposure taken at 11:15PM... All moonlight on the trucks. Little out of focus but still cool. Taken with a Canon Rebel XS, 18-55mm lens (that sucks IMO)

I got a lot of other photos that I like but Im too lazy to search and post. These arent hard to take photos nor are they that great, I just think they are cool.

Ill get some better shots of stuff soon. I wanna take one on the side of the road like TrackVino did at night. Badass shot.

Maybe look into a Nikon D40. I don't know Canon or Pentax to well so maybe another can chime in.

So, here's my lineup of camera's, that are in my possession.  

--film--
1.  one really old fold out kodak camera
2.  JCPenney TLS Auto 500 with fixed lens.  With 2 screw on lenses, tele and wide.  This camera was made by Mamiya.  :thumbs:  I learned on this and still takes really good film pics.
3.  1 XGA & 1 XG1 Minolta manual bodies with, 80-200mm tele, 18-28mm fish eye, 2 50mm's
4.  Nikon N50 with 35-80
5.  Pentax ZX-50 with 28-80mm
--digital--
6.  Nikon Coolpix 4800ED  (one awesome point and shoot)
7.  Nikon D70 with 70-300 and 18-70  (I really want a 18-200mm lens, but $700 is out of reach)

My favorite is the D70 even though there is a few little headaches that I have to live with, but FREE is something I can live with.

I got alot more I just took, but they aren't on my computer.  I'm waiting to get a disc of them.  I was at our local Outdoor School program for the last 2 weeks taking all sorts of pics.  I can only hope that I get to the level of photography that Dave and Kyle is at.  (Trackvino & Minisimp)  I actually look up to them for inspiration in taking pictures.


My mom has the Nikon D300 and that is one awesome camera.  I know alot of people that either love Canon and hate Nikon, or they hate Canon and love Nikon.  Twisted on Timbercrawler  http://www.jacobcarroll.com/  is setup with Canon, but admits that Nikon has better lenses, and wishes he had the $ to go full Nikon.

hey so a classmate of mine who's a photo major recommended that i look for a canon 20d based on my needs/ price range... Any objections to that?  I've been scouring craigslist lately..

Best thing to do is go to a camera shop and see which camera feels good in your hands.  And alot of camera shops usually carry used cameras that have been traded in for something newer.  My wife wants a Nikon P80, but doesn't fit my hands, very uncomfortable to hold.  So, go to a shop and talk with them.

i use a Canon 20D for my photos and really like it and only shoot in the "RAW" settings,but the stock lens works ok,but buying a better lens makes your photos that much better..

Yes good equipment does make your photos a lot better, but Ive seen some amazing shots from a point and shoot camera. Either way, learn the three most importent things about photography, and you can do amazing things with any camera.

ISO, Aperture, Shutter Speed - Thats all!

Post by: 82juguete on Oct 21, 2009, 11:36:43 PM
i know... i took a basic b&w photo class shooting 35mm and got spoiled with aperture/shutter adjustment and manual focus.  Now all the pics i take with my gfs point and shoot are just lame looking, by comparison... sadly her canon doesnt have a manual mode or even ap or shutter priority mode...

I love using my D70, cause I go manual with it.  Another thing to learn is lighting.  I hate taking pictures around the noon hour, or on really bright sunny days.

I really hate seeing people that spend $1000 on a good DSLR, and they never take it off the AUTO settings.  They might have well just bought a point and shoot.  :shake_head:

I recently scored an 80s era Nikon F3 from my dad. The only lens I have is a 52mm. I am taking a black and white intro to photography class right now and am finding I really dig this old camera. A lot more entertaining than I thought. Don't have any of my prints scanned yet but I will get some up soon. I also have a digital camera, a Nikon Coolpix 5000. Thats what I have been using up until a couple weeks ago.

So, from what I gather, B&Ws are hard to get right. They are most often okay but it takes a lot to get them great. Any insight to this?

YES. I am still new to this, but so far I am finding it very hard to nail consistent great shots. I am still learning the ins and outs of the camera, Fstops, etc

I just shot through another roll of film this weekend so next week in class I will see if my practice has paid off...
Title: Re: Photography
Post by: Cheesemaker on Nov 02, 2009, 09:08:33 PM
B&W is very tricky to learn.  The thing to remember with B&W is to look for texture in your subject.  Shadows, grains, lighting angles, and etc.  Thats why pics of older people really turn out.  And different color filters will change your pictures too.  I have several red and blue filters. 

I started to get into B&W and my camera shop went out of business, due to the digital camera, and I just haven't found a place to develop my B&W without mailing it off.

Full Frame Fisheye

F2.8

Push the button, get in the shot before the shutter opens. Soon as the flash goes off, leave the shot.

Yes it's a lens Link here (http://www.sigmaphoto.com/lenses/lenses_all_details.asp?id=3337&navigator=6)

With a regular fisheye you only get part of the picture, but you get more distortion

From a recent trip. And can someone tell me how to layer in PhotoShop? The deal where you darken/lighten areas.  :help:

Layering itself isnt actually a tool in photoshop, layers are a means to keep components seperate, therefore more easily editable....

If you want to lighten/darken areas, then you want to dodge or burn, respectively.  I will NOT recommend you use the photoshop dodge/burn tools however, since they damage pixel information, ruin the original image, and dont work too well.

Instead, create a new layer above the photo, change that layers "blend mode" to either color burn or dodge, and then use the brush tool with a light opacity, (15%ish) to "paint" the areas you want to darken.  If you screw up, you can just delete that layer.
Curves adjustment, levels, etc can also help you change the overall look of a photos darkness, contrast, color balance, etc...  Theres tons of tutorials online, but the best thing is to just play around with it and have fun!

Or if you can't adjust the warmth, change the white balance to "shade" and that will make it warmer.

Looks good J!
Try this trick:
Duplicate Layer, Change new layer to vivid color, go to select>color range, fuzziness 100, click on the dark areas, select>feather 100, copy, paste, change layer #2 back to normal, change layer #3 to screen.
It takes a while to play with it, but it will lighten your dark areas without blowing out your whites.

You can also make your bright areas darker doing the same thing, just select the light areas and make the new layer multiply.

I always shoot on ISO 100, it gives you a cleaner pic.
All of the shots above were shot with a fixed 50mm 1.8 Canon lens.

The last pic is just a regular shot of the bridge/city.
To get the effect:
Use Polar Coordinates then duplicate layer, flip duplicate horizontally change layer to lighten, color balance and crop.

Here is the same trick with a 360* panorama

The mind killer photo is a 360* panorama shot with 32 photos combined then flipped and polar'd.
Mine has flip points because I don't have a 360* shot that I can use to test the method yet, but I will :yesnod:

how can you flip a 360? if you flip it won't you be getting double? i don't think i understand what you mean by flip because to "flip" in my mind means take what you have on one side, flip it to the other side to make a whole (circle, square, whatever). all that is though is a duplicate of what you started with.

how does a 360 get flipped?

I really like the bridge one, too bad it kinda blends in with the background too much.  I'm amazed the deer still hasn't shed it antlers yet! 

I just saw a show on the History channel, How the Earth Was Made, and it was about Yosemite.  It was really interesting on how Half Dome, El Capitan (sp?) and surrounding formations were formed and why they are the hardest known granite in all the Sierra Nevada.

you flip it vertically after you stitch the photos in to one picture.

 :rivers: call me stupid i just don't understand how (or why you would need to) you flip a 360. if you take photos starting at point A and you shoot 180 degrees to point B then continue shooting another 180 degrees back to point A, why is a flip needed? and how do you not get double if you flip?

the two photos you posted I can see where the flip point is and if you follow it around you can see that what is on the right side (or top) is identical to the left side (or bottom). this is not happening from what i can tell, in the mindkiller photo. if you draw the letter A and flip it to the right you get double. AA. if you flip it vertically on top of itself you get just A. the letter A is symetrical though, the mindkiller photo is not.

i don't get it!  :down:

How much do you edit your pictures Kyle?  Cause the blue in the sky is an incredible blue.  And do you shoot with a polarizing filter? 
Title: Re: Photography
Post by: MiniSimp on Jan 21, 2010, 07:21:15 PM
Not much editing, I just put the camera on "shade" white balance and it auto darkens the sky. I think it shoots around 7500 Kelvin. Only editing was a level adjustment.

Okay. So why do you shoot in Raw just to convert later to Jpeg before editing? I think your loosing a bit of quality. ?
Title: Re: Photography
Post by: MiniSimp on Jan 21, 2010, 08:05:58 PM
Because I can change the exposure, white balance, color, sharpness and about 10 other things that I can't do with a normal jpeg. After I have it the way I want it, there is very little editing. Which is good cause PS6 is ghetto, but it's what I've got.

So what do you use to convert them?


I thought CS3 edited in whatever format you give it. It then converted to whatever you wanted. RAW is just the best format to edit from.

I don't know about the older versions of PS but if you have CS3 or CS4 you can open a photo is any format including RAW. When you're done editing you choose Save As and select the file format you'd like to save it as.

If you're unable to upload a photo to the net with it in RAW format, try another format like .TIFF and maybe that will work. .TIFF is better than .JPEG so if it works than you're good to go. :)

The whole purpose of shooting in RAW (whether you later change it to a less quality format or not) is because it is the most pure format to shoot in. Shooting in RAW captures the most amount of information possible and gives you the most amount of data possible to work with in an editing program. :)

Simp thank you for the link. I actually did this to a photo in my photography class on Monday. What I'm still curious about though is why you say that the Mindkiller photo has been flipped. Still lost on that one but the whole polarizing feature I'm good with.

Thanks again for the link.
Title: Re: Photography
Post by: MiniSimp on Jan 27, 2010, 09:49:01 AM
Sorry, let me see if I can make sense. You will need to flip the photo upside down to make a planet, if not, it will do the oposite and look like it's in a tube.

OOoooooohhh!!! OK!!! haha I get what you're talking about now. That's interesting because when I read that tutorial I wondered why it told you to rotate it 180 degrees. I didn't realize the polarizing feature would affect the photo differently if you rotated it opposed to not rotating it.

Good to know! Thank You! :)

Even the cheapest Cybershot has some manual settings, find out the model and I can tell you what it can do.

Okay apparently it is the Sony Cybershot DSC-W55.

One of the main things i wish it could do was take decent night shots.. I think i just need a tripod and let it do its thing.
Unless there is a trick i am unaware about..  This is how most night time pictures turn out though.

Look at page 15 of the manual for the self explanatory "Mode" settings, including night shots. If your shots are still to dark turn up the exposure (pg 16)

Just test the mode setting with the shot you are doing; shooting at night=night mode + high EV + high ISO
Landscape shot = landscape setting

oh, and one more thing....DON'T USE YOUR FLASH! It will kill your shots.

As the cheese said. The weather up here sucks for photography right now. Anything you look at is grey, grey and grey. Nothing but freaking grey. >:|

I'm in a photography class right now and have been using primarily OLD photos because I refuse to go out and try and shoot something that I'll like, no less the other people in class, with BS weather like this.

Ugh, I hate living in the NW simply because it's 70% crap weather and only 30% good weather. If that.

Post by: MiniSimp on Feb 16, 2010, 11:10:13 AM
I don't understand :dunno:

Bad weather is seriously some of the best times to shoot!
If everything is grey, work with it, slap on a red filter and do some sweet b&w's.

I'm still struggling with getting shutter speed and aperture to work well together. Nothing ever turns out how I see it or how I want it no matter how much I change one or both of those two particular settings.

Frustrating.

Portland Auto Show few weeks ago. There was a purdy Skyline there. :)

The Skyline shots look good, could be a little brighter and the white balance needs to be a little bit cooler. I like the shutter speed.
Even the cell pic is good!

Browsed the B&H site a bit. Is it kind of like Amazon.com for A/V categories? Looks pretty cool.

There definitely a few different filters I'll be getting. ^_^ Thanks for the info! And the comments!

So Mini, can you give a quick explanation of what filters do what? I've only used a polarizer.

Every filter does somthing different. Enhance, modify, manipulate...etc. One might bring out the reds in a photo while another will add little star looking things at points of glare on things like chrome and metal or add the little star at points of light shining through glass like a street lamp.

They're all different and there's soooo many. Check out the B&H Photo (http://www.bhphotovideo.com) site. They have a picture next to all the filters they sell that shows a general example of what the filter can do for you.

Couple examples:
White Balance filter
(https://board.marlincrawler.com/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.bhphotovideo.com%2Fimages%2Fimages150x150%2F530803.jpg&hash=fc183ad3b5a952eb1edaeb35c47ae1c3)

Infrared filter

Star Effect filter

I can give you a quicky of the ones I use.

Red - makes sky dark and skin look flawless (in b&w)
Green - Makes sky and trees light (in b&w)
Blue - Darkens skin flaws makes sky white
Neutral Density - tricks the camera in to thinking its darker outside letting you slow down your shutter speed in sunlight/shade
Computer - allows you to do nearly every filter you can put on a camera, except neutral density.
Title: Re: Photography
Post by: jrock on Feb 16, 2010, 07:08:26 PM
So is the filter adding or removing the color?
Title: Re: Photography
Post by: MiniSimp on Feb 17, 2010, 07:21:43 AM
So is the filter adding or removing the color?
In black & white the filters make some colors brighter and some darker, not removing.
In color they would change the hue of your image.

Here is an example of B&W with a dark red filter, notice the red bridge appears white and the blue sky appears black. The red filter brightens red colors while darkening colors at the opposite end of the spectrum.

(https://board.marlincrawler.com/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fsimpsonbrothers.net%2FLandscapes%2FNorthern-California%2FCalifornia-San-Francisco%2FIMG7783e1%2F680099746_sUgog-S-5.jpg&hash=3098bdeed6a727541b4e37718f9c8df8)

Here is a shot with a green filter, the grass and trees are brought out, magentas and purples are darkened.

Kyle, 1972TLC has better options in the gloomy weather.  Since she lives in the Willamette Valley, and she don't get the rainfall that I get right on the coast.  When it's gloomy on the coast, it's usually raining pretty good. 

But I had to work early yesterday, and got off work at 1 pm.  So, we went to the beach, since the sun was out and it was very nice.

The lighting was getting better, but we had to leave, since we had a Conference with our daughters teacher. 



I found out that I need to get my sensor cleaned.  There is a spot that won't come off with the air blow. :maddest:  The biggest issue with my D70, is the dust really likes the sensor, static issue.  I wish I could get a newer D series, one with the auto cleaner.

The first shot would have been great with a ND Gradient filter so that the sky would darken a bit.
Other than that great shots.
Only thing I would do is a little PP to bring out the colors.

Here is your original, and my attached edit (using crappy photo program at work)

Nice. Quick question on the black and white.. I haven't dabbled too much in B&W but my question is, If you want the B&W effect is it better to shoot in B&W or Change it ti B&W in photoshop? Are there any differences? The way I see it, if I take a color photo then I havre the option of both color or B&W if I want..  :dunno:

Post by: 82juguete on Mar 01, 2010, 06:47:05 PM
i could be wrong, but i shoot everything in RAW, and then change it to black and white with a B&W adjustment layer in PS.  This allows for independent adjustment of each color to its respective shade of grey.  Theres a bunch of different ways to do it, but i would stay away from just desaturating it...this tends to flatten everything out and destroy contrast.

The shots above were shot with the in camera "Monochrome" setting with a blue digital filter and contrast +2
However, that is not how I do black and white if I'm doing a professional shoot, but for family gatherings it works and saves me the editing time. (those are straight off the camera)

I agree, here is how I do it:

1. Open your image
2. Create 3 duplicate layers, name them "Red", "Blue", "Green"
3. Make sure the layers are in this order top to bottom: Red, blue, green, original
4. PP each layer like it is a final edited image by itself
5. Turn off all layers except Green
6. Image>Adjustments>Channel Mixer
7. Select Monochrome at the bottom of the Channel Mixer window
8. Make the following values: Red=0, Green=100, Blue=0
9. Hit OK
10. Turn off all layers except Blue
11. Image>Adjustments>Channel Mixer
12. Select Monochrome at the bottom of the Channel Mixer window
13. Make the following values: Red=0, Green=0, Blue=100
14. Hit OK
15. Change layer style of "Blue" to LIGHTEN
16. Turn off all layers except Red
17. Image>Adjustments>Channel Mixer
18. Select Monochrome at the bottom of the Channel Mixer window
19. Make the following values: Red=100, Green=0, Blue=0
20. Hit OK
20a. Change layer style of red to DARKEN
21. Turn on layers Red, Blue, Green (keep original off)
22. LAYER>MERGE VISIBLE (do not flatten)
23. You can now delete the original layer
24. PP your final B&W...and done.

EDIT: I use PS7, so your method may be different depending on your software.

Some recent shots. My photography class is making us do a series shoot. My series sucks pretty much because I'm forced to go find things to shoot and find a way to relate them to each other. I'm more of a documenting photographer. Unless I'm doing something other than normal day to day things or I'm on a vacation or there's a particular event that I care about and want photos of, I have no motivation to shoot. Therefore, I took photos of my dirty, stock, old rusty truck. The series sucks but whatever. It'll most likely get me an A since my instructor is as liberal as they come and almost every photo is a good photo so long as you can prove it. And what's the famous saying? So long as it's something you like it doesn't matter if anyone else likes it.

lol unless you're relying on making a profit off of it :greengrin:

Anyways, my backup DD ;)

That last pic is actually one I took a couple years ago after the bf and I finished rebuilding my motor. Back when it was still carb'd. My instructor liked it so much she's letting me use it in my series (which is supposed to be all new material). haha

The subject of the image is cut off on the left, right and bottom. There is a "dog nose" effect which warps the lines on the truck. You can't see the details of the shadows at all.
Kinda looks like a picture you would upload to autoshopper.com or something.
Try backing up about 20 feet, place the truck in the enviroment that it is used (street or offroad) not in the driveway.
Make your subject jump out at the looker.

X2?? Does it have to do with the dark lines/ area on the front right part of the bumper going behind the fog light.. ??? maybe it's a shadow on the ground that it picked up in the reflection?

Kyle, what books do you suggest for Digital Photography?  I was at Powell bookstore last weekend, and I was looking at a book to get, to help me get better at taking pics in digital.  They all seemed so generic, and most of the info was aimed at using lenses with the 2.8f, and  :yikes: those are expensive, and I was wondering whats in your library.
Title: Re: Photography
Post by: MiniSimp on Mar 11, 2010, 06:49:39 AM
...I was wondering whats in your library.
My library is the internet.
I would say the first book to read cover to cover is the camera manual. It's probably the most important part. If you don't know what your camera can do or how to do it, then taking good pictures for the conditions you are in is difficult.
F2.8 is just the aperature, you probably won't need to go lower until you start getting really creative. The fastest lens I have is a 50mm F1.8 and that cost me $99 shipped. They get expensive when you get in to IS lenses.

The best thing to do would be to know what the different camera settings do.
Example:
Low F-Stop number = faster shutter speed available and more bokeh in the background
High F-Stop number = slower shutter speed available and perfect focus of background
Low shutter speed = more vibrant colors, light trails, night exposures
High shutter speed = freeze frame action
Low ISO number = less noise, slower shutter speed
High ISO number - more noise, faster shutter speed

Basically, start with your camera manual, take some test shots with different settings and see how they differ
Also check this out: http://www.scrapjazz.com/topics/Photography/Lessons/1046.php

Another example:
You can take the same shot with these different settings:
ISO 50
F1.8

Thanks Kyle.  That's what I was expecting, but I thought I'd throw it out there.  I know all about the tech stuff, I was just wondering if you had some good reads beside the owner's manual.

I really haven't been inspired lately as I seem to have gotten lazy and bored with my camera. I hope it doesn't last. A shot from Pacifica Pier. Nothing special but a cool shot.

Yeah, sorry I don't have more. As for me, I went on the internet to find shots that I liked and then searched for how to take them. Lots of searching and taking throw away pictures.

Edit: Browsing the books this morning and this one looks pretty good. http://www.amazon.com/dp/0715329405/ref=rdr_ext_sb_ti_sims_1#noop
Best thing to do would be to go to a book store and look through them. You'll want to look for the books that explain how to make the shots better with a lot of technical talk.

That's probably a great book.
If you can learn to use all the settings on your camera properly you can take a very dull subject, and take an amazing photo.

Check out these photos from 1x.com (http://1x.com) one of my favorite photography sites:

I've picked up a couple of books, and they basically helped give me better ideas and those "OH that's how to do that!"  
This is one of the better one's I've ran across.  He has one page info's on how to.  http://www.kelbytraining.com/product/the-digital-photography-book.html



My biggest issue is I just don't have time to just go and shoot, and then just sit at the computer running them through Photoshop/Picassa editing them.  Most of my shooting is spare of the moment, or I just happen to be at the right place at the right time.  There are so many times, I see stuff I want to stop and shoot, but I am on the way to work, or I am running behind.  One day, it will happen for me.

In street photography for some reason I only see in black and white. I found the photo confusing at first, trying to decide if the art was the subject or if the person was the subject. Here is what I saw.

No filter, it is 5 shots with different exposures combined in to one. Don't have the original on me, but it looked like a normal sunset pic.

This one, if you crop the bottom up to just above the yellowish "leaves" if you will, at the base of the plant.

It could use some slight color editing too but other than that it's a good photo :)

Cheese, did you use the same shutter speed with all four water photos? If not, I personally like the first water photo's shutter speed setting the best.

And I like the fourth water photo's composition the best.

me and my wife are looking to get our first dslr.... i went to the camera store today and talked to the guy in there, he suggested a d3000 or a d5000... we personally like the d5000 for the video option and the swivel view finder ..... my friend who is sort of into photography said get a 2nd lens with it. The guy at the store suggestest a 200mm nikon package deal lens.

I was wondering if anyone could give me some extra advice...

We do a lot of outdoor shooting, wildlife, offroading, animals, etc.

I am totally green to all this and want a HUGE upgrade from my point and :pokinit:....

any advice would be great!

What kit lens does it come with?
I would get a 70-300 macro AF lens for a second, assuming the kit lens is somewhere between 18-90 or 18-135
Title: Re: Photography
Post by: Jakesteads on Mar 25, 2010, 02:33:33 PM
the one he suggested was the 55-200mm af-s dx vr

i dont fully understand the MM concept or the megapixel ... maybe you could explain that to me so i can understand better.

sorry it comes with a 55mm lense
Title: Re: Photography
Post by: MiniSimp on Mar 25, 2010, 02:36:55 PM
Mm is your range; 8mm is wide angle, 1200mm is super zoom.

When shooting handheld make sure your shutter speed is equal to or greater than your zoom.

Go for the 300 if you can.

ok great that explains it a lot better... i take quite a few distance shots ... so that helps a ton.... next week they are suppose to run "deals" so i want to gather as much info as i can before i drop a ton of money on it

If you can afford it get the IS (image stabilation) lens.

Sway, #2 with an upper left crop.

You guys are getting really good!

Here is a shot from a beauty pageant we shot last weekend. Very low light, changing light conditions. My favorite combo.

Cheese, did you use the same shutter speed with all four water photos? If not, I personally like the first water photo's shutter speed setting the best.

And I like the fourth water photo's composition the best.

No I did not use the same shutter speed on all of them.  I had to adjust it, cause the sun was high and bright, and it was really difficult for me to get what I got without it being all washed out.  And I haven't gotten any filters yet.  As a matter of fact I just priced some from B&H Photo.  :yikes:  Maybe next month.


Jakesteads, I'd go with the D3000.  I know a few friends that have the D5000 and have had issues with the swivel screen.  And to be honest, if you want to take video, buy a digital camcorder.  And when you get the new camera, get a spare battery too.

Of course the lighting was perfect and I grabbed the wrong lens for getting great animal shots.  But I really hate changing lenses for this shot and then change back for that shot.  One day I'll have a good multi lens.  I really like the 18-270mm range of lenses.

There are a few different programs, the one I use is Photomatix. If you decide to do it, go to B&N and get a book on HDR photography. There is a nice one that explains the differences between the 5 major HDR software programs and how you will need to take the pictures.

I've been looking at those, and if I were to buy a new camera today, and it wasn't a Nikon.  The Lumix line would be it.  Especially, with the ability to change out lenses.  All the photog mags have been rating them pretty high.  Especially, if you don't want a big DSLR body to be packing around, and you like the ease of a point and shot body.  Got to admit, I get tired of packing my big bulky camera sometimes.

Try to use a faster shutter speed/lower f-stop number on fast moving objects.
It ensures that your images are not OOF.

the bull riding was pretty sunny so my settings were ISO 400-F11-1/800 and the freestyle i believe i used ISO 400-F11-1/1000.

i'm still trying to experiment and just get a feel for different settings. at the time i was more concerned about not having enough depth of field, but i think now i could have used F7.1 or even F5.6 and it would have been better.

Played with the quality setting on my camera a while back and haven't since taken pics, until today.  I think I previously had it on good, then there's better and best.  I bumped it up to best.  Honestly the quality isn't any better than before, almost seems worse, only difference being the pics are now huge!  It's a pain resizing to post them now, but here's a few from today.  Only setting that didn't seem to suffer so much was on closeups

Pretty sure that's Jon riding and somebody else snapping the pic.  I'd say the dude from gotbluemilk, but there'd probably be a watermark if it was theirs.

I know quite a few of you out there are more than amateur but even us amateurs; What camera do you use? What lenses do you most often carry?

Please post a picture or two of your more favorite shots.  :beerchug:

I really like the bear better than the bee.  But I do like the bee.  I think if the bee was on a flower that wasn't orange, the bee would pop out more.  But looks good.  But the bear, leaves you to wonder what is he looking at?  Lunch, wishing he had 3D glasses so he can watch Avatar in 3D, or that crazy photographer.   :rofl2:

The penguins, is definitely a no go.  The background sucks.  



Edit:  my wife likes the penguins, but she is a penguin fan.  But she does agree that the background definitely is distracting.  Now if you were to have gotten the picture with the background out of focus, like the bear, then the penguins would be good.  But since the rocks is right there behind them, I know it's hard to do.
Title: Re: Photography
Post by: MiniSimp on May 18, 2010, 06:22:21 AM
Thanks Cheese.

I agree about the penguins.

I tried to move the bee to another flower, but it was beeing very uncooperative and resistant.

Thanks for being honest :thumbs:

I'll have a couple more shots up tonight.

Title: Re: Photography
Post by: Cheesemaker on May 19, 2010, 09:29:16 AM
Pic #1 ~  The flowers is fighting for attention.  My eyes keep going toward the flowers to the right.  And not toward the monkey, which I'm assuming was your subject?  Even though the background is out of focus, it still is too busy.  Is that another monkey? or is it a tiger thinking about dinner?
I do like the monkey, but the environment seems to distract me from him.  If he had a different surrounding, grassy meadow and less distractions, he would really stand out more.   


Pic #2 ~  Did you try it in B&W?  I like it as it is tho to.  But I think B&W might make his hand pop out more.  And maybe darken the background to get the focus more on the hand and fence.  Cause in B&W the white fur/hair in the background is gonna get bright and that might wash out the rest of the pic.  But overall this is my favorite of the 3. 

Pic #3 ~  The peacock is growing on me. The "eyes" on the feathers are popping out and look like they are floating, and his color is incredible.  The only issue, it's growing on my though, is the lighting behind him.  The light is illuminating the quill part of the of the feathers.  In one aspect its distracting, but in another aspect it's showing the complexity of his plumage.  My eyes want to see more of his plumage.  Is this picture cropped in?  Cause I'm wanting to see more of this picture.  It's really growing on me.  My eyes keep going to the edge of the picture looking for more of his plumage.  Like I said, it's growing on me more and more I look at it. 

Hope this helps Kyle.   :thumbs:
I just hope that one day I can get close to where you are now in my ability to take pictures.

I've got another shot of just the monkey with a closer frame, I'll try that one tonight.

I tried the foot in B&W, but it didn't really do anything for me, I'll post it up for ya.

The peacock is full frame, no crop, don't have any wider shots of it either. I do have one with more angle, but same zoom.

BTW, lens for all of these is the Sigma 70-300mm Macro

Two things: 1. The flower, as mentioned by Cheese needs to be a different color and 2. The subject in directly in the middle of the photo...and that is a no no :P

(https://board.marlincrawler.com/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fsimpsonbrothers.smugmug.com%2FAnimals%2FAnimals%2FPenguin3810e1%2F870721979_kaxHg-XL.jpg&hash=52226b531be926dcd3fa5d13a7da27f1)
Agrees with Cheese. The bg is distracting and the penguins blend in way too much with it. Could also be a bit brighter (though the darkeness I think just might be my monitor so take that with a grain of salt).

(https://board.marlincrawler.com/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fsimpsonbrothers.smugmug.com%2FAnimals%2FAnimals%2FBear3760e1%2F870721270_ZuFFA-XL.jpg&hash=21cf38d9a51bda41b082d4cb8498f74a)
Good shot. The only thing I might have done differently would have been moving the subject slightly more to the left and slightly more towards the top. Does that makes sense?

Title: Re: Photography

Again, as Cheese mentioned my eye keeps being pulled to the purple flowers to the left as well. I also keep moving from the in focus monkey to the blurred monkies in the background. They are terribly distracting because they are not in focus and I keep trying to see them. :(

(https://board.marlincrawler.com/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fsimpsonbrothers.net%2FAnimals%2FAnimals%2FMonkey3840e1%2F871781168_V6jHs-XL.jpg&hash=cfadb325fc141378a5a48ecaf3cd7fde)
I like it. It's expressive in a non emotional way...if you will. I just really like the black padding of the foot against their tan fur and the crispness and color of the fence go very nicely with the whole photo.

(https://board.marlincrawler.com/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fsimpsonbrothers.net%2FAnimals%2FAnimals%2FPeacock3712e2%2F871781445_fyQuN-XL.jpg&hash=fb8947ab7d4bfa36f59697992cb3165f)

Canon 50mm 1.8 (Awesome! beautiful shots and a great price)
Phoenix 19-35mm (nice wide angle, no problems yet, good quality)
Tameron 28-300mm Macro (heavy, not a dedicated macro, not great)

Sigma 28-300mm Macro (awesome!)
Opteka Auto Focus DG Macro Extension Tube Set (not glass, but great for Macro)
Right Angle View Finder (used it a couple of times for on the ground shots, works fine)
Battery Grip (awesome, makes portrait shots super easy and has clip for AA batteries)
Body Armor (Great protection, takes a while to get used to, protects LCD as well)
Tripod ($15 at Walmart! Can't lose! LOL)

I like the lady bug picture.  I really like the subtlety of the grass in the lower left of the shot.  If you could have gotten more of the body in focus, would have stepped up the picture.  But overall its a good picture.  Especially dealing with bugs can be tricky.

I like the fly picture too, but the only thing that pulls my eye away from the fly, is the flowers in the foreground that is OOF.  I like the balance of colors of the fly, background and flower.  Not one stands out more, they help enhance the scene.

Kyle, what is a good aftermarket lens?  I see you have several brands.  I'm looking at saving up for a more universal lens, so I'm not switching lenses all the time.  Since, my Nikon D70 doesn't have the sensor cleaner that every camera since then have.  So, I'm looking for a good 18-200mm lens.  And I'm wondering what lens brand should I look at?  I know the Nikkor lens that Nikon has, is very good, but how good are the aftermarkets?  I know Tamron has been around a long time. 
Title: Re: Photography
Post by: MiniSimp on May 30, 2010, 09:50:59 PM
Prime lenses (no zoom) are the clearest. Sigma is my favorite so far, But I would love the Canon 50mm 1.2
Are you having problems with dust spots on your sensor?
Title: Re: Photography
Post by: Cheesemaker on May 30, 2010, 10:03:24 PM
Yeah.  I got the little rocket blower.  Which helps, but not always.  The Nikon D70 has alot of flaws, that has been addressed in all cameras since.  I've learned to work around a few of the little quirks.  I love my camera as much as the sensor likes to attract dust.

If your images look like this, then you need to clean your sensor.
Usually can be seen from f13-f36

Lady Bug looks better.  :thumbs:

My sensor doesn't look like that, but there is a speck that bothers me.  So, do you clean your sensors yourself Kyle?  And it really that easy like they say with the kits?  

Can you see the 4 spots??  (on my 19" monitor they stand out, one REALLY stands out)

LB- first shot is good, but the driver could be lit a little in PS. 2nd shot needs a little more on the bottom, truck is cut off.

46&2- Deffinetly needs glass cleaner. When taking shots of fish/stuff in tanks you want the illusion that they are not actually in a tank.

Others may care for them but I personally think you went too far with the blur on the 1st and 3rd shots.

The first barely even has a focal point because the only thing in focus is part of an emblem that I can't even figure out what it is.. :(

The third is better, sort of. If the shot had been taken at a different angle to the car so that you could actually see part of the car, then having only few (or one in this case) of the letters in the emblem being in focus would not take away from the photo.

There just isn't much to look at in these two particular photos. Without a stimulating point of focus, extreme blur can fall into the category of "dead space." :/

All the others look fab though, even with all the obligatory reflections lol :)

Nice shots Simp
Title: Re: Photography
Post by: MiniSimp on Jun 07, 2010, 11:26:44 AM
Yeah, 1 & 3 the DOF was set to 1.8 and my angle was way too much. I couldn't see it until it was OOC. I felt the same as you so I asked a couple of people and they both liked them, so I kept them in.

I have found that any photo is a great photo, if you have the right person looking at it. :greengrin:

To a car nut, they look cool.  Cause we know what they are, but the pictures gives us a different perspective on things we've seen a thousand times.   :thumbs:


On a side note, a little more depth of field, just a little.  But I love the OOF to the right of the pictures, cause you know what the car looks like, but leaves you wanting more to see.  I think you did fine Kyle, but everybody likes different things.  A classic car nut would love those pics.

Title: Re: Photography
Post by: MiniSimp on Jun 08, 2010, 06:42:25 AM
1. I would like the top 1/3 of the photo to be sky, horizon line is crooked.
2. Again, more sky, crooked horizon, over saturated
3. Nice shot, but using a flash turned down 1/2 stop might have brought more detail to the flowers
4. crooked horizon, not sure about the subject
5. Survey markers are cool, there is actually a site dedicated to finding and marking the GPS of all of them. Shot needs to be rotated 2* CCW and it's slightly out of focus, if you could darken the shadows a bit also that would be good.
6. I do like the shot, but I would like to see the flower in focus instead of the stem

Even to newb car nuts they are good photos....but because of the newb status someone like myself might not know what the car in the first photo, is. Everything in that photo (minus the enormous glare circles) is great, but as you mentioned, the DOF could be adjusted just a bit, so that maybe the emblem/badge, whatever it is would be slightly more in focus. And perhaps at just an ever so slightly different angle so that you could see the shape. For me, while I like the blur and the color and lighting an all, it just looks like a sweet ass old car with 3 silver blobs glued to it. lol :(

The Bel Air shot is growing on me though now that I look at it on a new day. :)

1. Beautiful. I'm not a fan really of crisp "in focus" if you will haha glare cirlces. And in this particular photo they actually don't look all that natural. They almost look like you took a glare circles brush to the right side of the photo in PS or something. lol Other than that though I love it.

2. Love the emblem and the contrast of the emblem colors is just great. As for the rest of the photo, I'm very torn. Part of me says "it's kinda boring" but the other part of me says "boring or not the main focus is dazzeling." The shadow at the top of the photo though is just kind of throwing it off for me. It's a bit distracting. And the shot I guess is more flat, than boring. It's flat, there's no depth. I know you didn't but it kinda looks like you took a photo of a vette emblem hung on a white wall, with weird glare/reflections. :/

3. Outstanding! Perfect everything. :) Even perfect reflections as they barely look like relfections! :)

4. Poster material. Looks like the kind of shot the dealer would be making banners with and advertisement billboards and posters. :) Very nice shot.

1 & 3 really stand out to me.   :rockingout:  Especially #3!!  I just love the colors bouncing off the machining of the metal.  And you gave more than just the emblems, you gave the depth of the trunk line up to the rear window.  The more I look at the picture, there is so much detail that I keep finding more things.  Like the dent, the pitting/water drops on the strip, the age on the key hole, and the sky line on the curvature of the trunk.  This is a picture I would buy.  :thumbs:

But 2 & 4 are the pictures that everybody would take.  I really don't like the straight on shots.  (but it works for #3, because you gave more to the picture)  But, I love old classic chevy emblems.  I'm a GM man first and foremost.  They still look good, but I'm looking for more in the picture.

First of all the Grand National emblem, weak to me.  By the way, the Grand National emblem signifies turbo charged v-6.  I've seen these cars in stock form lifting the front end off the ground and stomping blown big blocks away. 

My favorites are 2-4.  With a slight exception, you need to wear a palm tree costume when taking pictures.   :rofl2:  But looking beyond the reflections of the photographer, it is by far my favorite.  But I do love the hood ornaments.   :thumbs:

I like #1...IMO, there are no two letters that evoke the muscle image than SS.

#4 captures the "space age" image Detroit was trying to bring out in all the cars of that day...the image looks as if it's ready for take off into the land of tomorrow.

This is my favorite of this bunch...the colors and patterns reflected in the ornament,  along with the ornament's color, offer a nice contrast to the hood's color.

1. I would like the top 1/3 of the photo to be sky, horizon line is crooked.
2. Again, more sky, crooked horizon, over saturated
3. Nice shot, but using a flash turned down 1/2 stop might have brought more detail to the flowers
4. crooked horizon, not sure about the subject
5. Survey markers are cool, there is actually a site dedicated to finding and marking the GPS of all of them. Shot needs to be rotated 2* CCW and it's slightly out of focus, if you could darken the shadows a bit also that would be good.
6. I do like the shot, but I would like to see the flower in focus instead of the stem


you mention the horizon being straight in a few of those, is this a pretty important feature of any well took shot or something?  whats "rotated 2 degrees CCW" mean? and what does "flash turned down half stop" mean?
Thanks for the info man, you seem like you know what your doing ha ha ha

Generally yes, it is one of the first things about a photograph that is nit picked.


whats "rotated 2 degrees CCW" mean?
CCW = counter clock wise


and what does "flash turned down half stop" mean?
On external flashes, and some internals you can adjust the flash exposure level


Congrats on the sale, bet it makes it seem worth while when it's hanging on a wall being appreciated huh!?
For sure!

Its really good, gives it a nice smokey taste. Although, Id say use a flat bread so it doesnt take as long, or put foil under it about half ways through so it doesnt burn. We use flat breads to make pizza when camping, also a tin pan for nachos. This was the first "take/bake" pizza I did on the BBQ, I would use foil next time.

So, here are a few that I've taken lately.  Been really busy and the camera has been sitting for a while.  This is some pics I took the other night.  The golf course behind our house has been doing a remodel on the entire grounds.  And July the 3rd was their grand opening.  So, we got to hear live music from about 2 PM to midnight.  And then we were able to see the fireworks too!!  So, I grabbed my camera, but I didn't grab the tripod.  So, I had to free hand the pictures.  So, here ya go!!


This is one of those freakin ass huge flags.  :usa:

My step sister had a friend over that had a nice Canon with the fancy remote and I was jealous.  Because he got some really good ones.  I could have alot more steady shots, but I didn't have the tripod.  :outtahere:

I also got my sensor cleaned so, I'm ready for my trip.  I had my cousin do it for me.  I just found out that he works at a Cameraworld store.  And he showed me how to do it.  He had to get pretty agressive to get it clean.  The specs didn't want to come off very easily.

Yep, sensor cleaning is a pregnant dog, but once it's clean, it's a giant relief.

Nice shots of the fireworks!

Title: Re: Photography
Post by: Cheesemaker on Jul 08, 2010, 10:16:44 PM
ISO is basically film speed.  Or sensitivity.  The higher the number the more sensitive it is, meaning low light pictures.  




Can't wait till I get back from my trip.  And see what my pictures look like.  We are leaving for Yellowstone, and then heading south through Reno.  And on to Fresno, to drop off family.  And get parts from Marlin.  And then back home.

This morning we took our two children to the doctors for a regular check-up. Our youngest (14 months) tripped over his own feet and landed eye first in to a kids bench in the waiting room. I picked him up and said "Well, at least you picked a convenient location to do this" and 3 hours later there are 5 stitches holding the cut together.

#1 - I wasn't sure what to go for. I wanted a silhouette but with some detail. I want the face to be darker but with the sun rays.

#2 - I was afraid the Mt was a tad hazy but it's clear as a whole. It's Mt Shasta if anyone's curious.

Couple from my trip right now.  Photobucket is only recognizing my pics that are in JPEG and not in RAW format.   :maddest:  Since I took over 1000 pictures at Yellowstone.  But until then, here's a few teaser shots till then.  That and I had a few spots how up on my sensor, and I didn't know it till I got home.  Some I'm gonna try to clean them up, if I have patience for it.

I wish I had more time to compose my pictures, but I was off the cuff with 90% of them, so there are times I was standing in a hole.   :yupyup:  Or the lighting was bright, since I was shooting at all hours of the day.  My polarizer filter helped, but not like I hoped.  I did find out that the sulfur steam isn't good on your lens either  :mad:  Glad I didn't spend alot of $$ for it.  There are permanent spots on it now.

My silhouette shots.  The last day there the thunderheads really rolled in and gave some really dramatic composition.  They looked awesome, until they unleashed on us.  I got used to shooting in bright daylight, and when the clouds rolled in and darkened everything, I had to try to compensate for it.  The rivers and valleys turned out really dark, so I turned my attention to the clouds and the tree lines.

The last photo is awesome! It would have been great if the little puddle at the bottom if it had more of a reflection of the snag in it also.

IMO it might even look a little bit better with a little crop. It *almost* seems a little too centered up for my taste. Its still a great photo though!

Thanks Lilbuddy.  I could have spent an entire day, just photgraphing Mammoth Hot Springs.  But I took most of my pictures off the fly, cause there was so much to see and do there.  And I still didn't see everything.  Let's just put it this way, Yellowstone is a Photographers paradise.  Kyle would be walking around with a permanent stiffy.  I was taking pictures of one thing, and then turn and find something else equally cool to shoot.  And then the wife and kids are screaming at me to lets go!!!

I'll post of my on the fly pictures later.  There were times the wife wouldn't let me stop to photograph so I had to get them out the window of the van, while moving.  I have this montage of my trip through the windshield of the family cruiser!!  :rofl2:

Hey, this is Cheesemaker's wife, he just had me watch the engagement video and told me you were looking for a critique.  I thought it was done really well and the music choice was excellent.  If I had to make any suggestions, it would be these:

Leave the still photos on the screen a little longer, they seem to flash by too quickly.  I think some of the video time could be sacrificed (in particular the shot/shots over the flowers, it is kind of grainy) in order to give the still shots more screen time.

Also, I would leave the writing (Love is patient, etc) until the very end because it feels like an odd placement since there is no other text on the screen until the very end.  It kind of messes up the pacing. 

Besides those couple of small things, it was just beautiful!  :)

I just picked up Adobe Lightroom.  Which will help me convert my RAW images into JPEG photos easier.  Haven't installed it, cause I need to do some back up stuff. Getting a external HD tomorrow to store my photos on, so if anything happens to my computer, then my pictures will be safe.  :crossed:



Just looking back at my photos, there were so many times, that the background has some things in them, that I wish I could have gotten a better angle on things.  But you HAVE to stay on the paths.

For the price it is a good lens. Just don't get disapointed when some of your pics come out blurry or not focused where you thought. That narrow dof makes the focus point a pregnant dog.

I like them Kyle, but they are on the border of being almost too busy.  I like the first more, but I spend too much time looking at the three streaks, and the telephone lines overhead.  But I like the moon and the stars, especially the milky way. 


The second one, I spend too much time looking at which windmills are not running/running.  So, I'm not looking at anything else in the picture.  I really have to make myself to look at the whole picture.  But the stars and the hills look great. 




I was up at my moms today and I brought up your website and showed her your pictures.  She was very impressed with your stuff.  :thumbs:

I love the glow of the dash in the runner.  I like the skyline there better than the other two.  Cause you can see alot of stars, and focus on that, and the bottom with the lights of the city. 

You need to find a nice hill with a huge ass oak tree and do a night time shot of that.  That is what I see as a really good pic in my mind.  Very simple, and uncluttered.  I wish I had big grassy hills here, but everything is covered in forests and brush.  I envy you Kyle, I have to drive out to Eastern Oregon to get hills like that.  And your surrounded by them where you live.

I know, I know.  But I just don't get time to go and just shoot pictures.  My work schedule, and family time is crazy.  Especially, right now.   The crazy wife is trying to maximize our fun time with the kids before they go to school.  Every weekend has been filled.  And the last pictures I took were tonight.  And they were parts for the transmission.  :shake_head:  And the fact that after I got my sensor cleaned right before my vacation, I still ended up with dust on the sensor while on vacation, and I'm kinda discouraged a little.   :(

Did you take it back and tell them to do it again?
Your camera may have a "Dust Delete Data" option, depending on what kind of camera you have. That option basically limits what AV and TV your camera will allow you to shoot, making it so that no dust shows up.

As for me...I'm going to Mono Lake on Saturday to shoot sunset.

Just need to clean a couple of things first...

Well, it was my cousin who did the cleaning for me.  (for free)  And he's a CameraWorld store manager.  But I still need to pick up my own cleaning kit.  
I was told that Adobe has a feature that can pin point all your "spots" and eliminate them upon download.  So, I need to look into that too.  I just got Adobe Lightroom  :whistle: and maybe it has it too.

What I really need to do, is to get a laptop to download pictures while on vacation, so that way I know what my pictures look like from day to day.  So, I don't have to wait till I get home to see what they look like.  It's hard to see the spots on my little screen on my camera.  That's why I'm wanting a multipurpose lens.  Like a 18-270mm, to cut down the amount of lens changing, to keep the dust entering the camera to a minimum.


But on Monday I my mom and step dad invited us to go with them to Warrenton, Or.
And it has this--

And hopefully, if I get time, and the kids aren't too, "dad you've taken enough pictures already!"  mode, there is Neah-Kah-Nie Mtn, and Hug Point.  But that all depends on the weather and lighting.  So, we will see what happens.

Sounds awesome!
Try to take your shots 1/2 hour before to 1/2 hour after sunrise/sunset.
Usually f8-f2.8 will be spot free.
Most lenses are sharpest between f5.6-f16
You can look up your lens here to see where the sharpest range is

look for "Tested" cause those are the only ones you can tell.

Really you just challenge me to try to be better.  I got another book to read yesterday.  http://www.amazon.com/Digital-Photography-Next-Nothing-Hardware/dp/0470687266  It's got alot of good info on the cheap or free.  And I picked up some sensor cleaning supplies too!  But the sensor just needed a good bj.  No spots on the pictures I took of the sunset last night.  Will post up later.

First of all I got the latest issue of Popular Photog, and in there, was a listing for a photographer.  The name sounded familiar and of course, I went to school with this little b*std.  If you knew him 20 years ago, you would have wanted to kill this guy.  But looking at his site, he has done very well in the industry.  Some very nice work.  He likes using the shutter delay in his beach/ocean pics.   http://darrenwhitephotography.com/


But here is some of my favorites from last night.  I really love going to the Pacific Oyster jetty in Bay City, which is right down the road from me.  Kyle I know, you posted up the list of places to shoot around my place.  But you get in that mood, and forget what you have around you, because you see it all the time, or you get too busy, to realize what a half hour of your time can produce.

I wanted to go out the night before, but I didn't get time, too busy grilling meat.  But the clouds from my house were an incredible pink.  I really wished I had the chance.  But oh well.

Thanks.  The grass was off the cuff.  Had to free hand it, since I broke my tripod last night!  :shake_head: 
I think my biggest thing is I tend to forget to slow down and relax and think things through.  I just get in a hurry taking pictures, while I'm loosing my lighting. 

But tomorrow, I'm going north to Warrenton and hopefully, everything will be just right for photographing.

Best thing you can do is read your camera manual front to back until you understand what it does, then go on the internet and find out why it does it, then buy a book on lighting and one on composition. It also helps if you know what kind of pictures you will be taking. If you will be shooting everything, learn a lot. If you will focus on one topic; Landscape, Portrait, Macro, Night then it will be easier for you to learn and cheaper for you to get the gear you need.

Think of it like this: Would you rather build a truck that can crawl and mud and desert race and street drive or would it be better if you focused on one of those and purpose built the truck.

Ok, some pics from yesterday in Warrenton/Astoria, Oregon.
Something to keep in mind...

Quote
Rule of Thirds
One of the most popular and well known compositional rules is the Rule of Thirds. This is based on the idea of an imaginary grid being placed inside your camera’s viewfinder. Picture a tic-tac-toe board, and you’ll get what I mean. As you observe your subject, the grid acts as a guide to show you how to compose your scene. Try placing a face on one of these intersections, or the main focal point of your image here.

You can also try and make sure that you have enough “seeing” space in your composition. If a person is looking to the right, try and place them on the left side of the frame with their eyes pointing towards the open side of the image. It just adds to the direction and story of the image.

This rule is something I think about every single time I click the shutter. It’s just burned into my brain, and I’ve found its a fast, and very simple trick to vastly improve the quality and interestingness of my photos. Try it!

There are times that I tend to forget what I need to focus on for the shot.  Especially, when I can hear the wife and kids yelling at me to hurry up!!   :yupyup:   I try to do the 1/3 rule, but sometimes I get in a hurry, thinking I can go back and edit later, but the problem is I never get to edit.  Rarely.

Thanks Kyle.

I did some learning tonight on exposure time.  First time I really tried some long exposure.  I got to say I like how the last one turned out.  And I like my little remote I got. 
I tried to keep the 1/3rd rule in mind, but sometimes it's hard when you got so much you want to incorporate in the picture.  Like in the first picture, just have to try to balance it out.

Oh!!  And when taking pictures with a tripod, make sure your not in the sand when the wave comes in while the shutter is open.  :rofl2:

I need to get a better tripod, and one with a spirit bubble in it, so I can try to get the camera level.  It's kinda tricky when in low light.

Hey mini, in those last Yosemite photos are you implementing HDR? Im not sure if its just the resolution on-screen but it looks like theres some loss of edge quality (ie the bushes around the creek) possibly from slightly misaligned layering if it is HDR. Either that or just a result of bumped-up contrast + 72dpi web photo.
Title: Re: Photography

It's got to be the web. Original is clean. Yes 0,-2,+2 HDR in Photomatix. Used feature match alignment with normal motion detect. No wind that day so it was perfect.

What kind of camera you using?  Cause I learned that a good polarized can make the blue in the sky really jump out.   And they almost look a little washed out.  I know that rock has alot of color in it.  I always take a couple test shots, to see if the picture looks washed out or too dark.  I love to use my +/- to adjust it.  The best times to get pictures on a bright day is early morning and late afternoon.  It really warms up the pictures, and the angle of the sun also helps give shadows.  The shadows can give your picture depth.  

Try posting your pictures into a online photo sharing site.  Flicker, or photobucket.  That way you can post up bigger pics and don't have to shrink them to fit.  Can just link them here.



KYLE!!!  I see a tripod in the picture.   :rofl2:
I went the the Oregon state Fair, and went to see the photography dept.  I saw sooo many mistakes in the professional section.  Too many reflections of the photographer "Trying" to hide while getting the photo of something shiny.   :yupyup:

Were these taken with a cell phone?

Since the photo quality is not great, I'll just talk about composition.

#1: The composition is ok, but I would have ditched the rock on the right and just kept the rock to the right of the dip. Other than that, I'm having problems finding an interesting subject.

#2: Nice scene with the snow caps and the trail giving the diagonal line, but the pic needs to be pointed down more. A little too much sky, and maybe get closer to the trail.

#3: Nice scene, the vehicles need to not be centered in the shot, they should be on the left side (always have space in front of where the vehicle is pointing), there also needs to be more ground under the vehicles and more sky above the mountains.

Can't remember what camera it was off the top of my head, it wasn't mine. These were taken back in March on my trip to Utah and there was so much for me to look at that i was just pointing and shooting. I appreciate the comments and when i get a camera i will post more up.

Hey Kyle, do you get your camera thoroughly cleaned? And how often?  Cause, I got a sensor cleaning kit, but I can get about 3 to 5 photos, before I get spots showing up on the sensor.  I'm getting very pissed and we've been getting some killer sunsets and I'm just coming back with pictures with spots on them.   :maddest: Blowing out the interior and wiping the sensor just isn't cutting it.

Another ?.  I took some pictures in the RAW/JPEG mode, and the Jpeg pics comes out dark.  Is this because of the camera is compressing the image to fit the jpeg format?  Cause all the RAW ones looked great, nice color and lighting (outside of the spots), and the JPEG's are darker significantly.

Hey Kyle, do you get your camera thoroughly cleaned?
I clean it myself

And how often?
Usually about once a month, or after any ocean or dusty shoot

Cause, I got a sensor cleaning kit, but I can get about 3 to 5 photos, before I get spots showing up on the sensor.  I'm getting very pissed and we've been getting some killer sunsets and I'm just coming back with pictures with spots on them.   :maddest: Blowing out the interior and wiping the sensor just isn't cutting it.  
That's pretty much all I do, make sure when you blow it out (first) hold the camera in the air, hole down, that way everything you are blowing out doesn't land back in the body. As for the spots on the sensor, just use the sensor wipe kit, then blow it out, take a white shot at a small fstop, see if there are more spots, clean again, repeat until no longer frustrated. Make sure you are blowing out your lens backs, and cleaning the glass on the back of the lens. That can also cause spots at low fstops.

Another ?.  I took some pictures in the RAW/JPEG mode, and the Jpeg pics comes out dark.  Is this because of the camera is compressing the image to fit the jpeg format?  Cause all the RAW ones looked great, nice color and lighting (outside of the spots), and the JPEG's are darker significantly.
That could be the software you are using to view the photo. When I open my RAW in Canon the light is perfect, when I open it in Adobe it is twice as dark (until I hit VIEW and select MONITOR) then the exposure looks correct. Try converting the RAW to JPEG then open that pic and a normal jpeg in the same program.

Mini what filter did you use in the Yosemite shots?
I don't use filters, except when shooting B&W. For color I use the Landscape setting and push it up a point.

As for your photos:

#1 & #2
Try to push the exposure as far as you can to the right for brightness without overexposing. The water's brightest point should be your pure white and will also properly WB your shots. Also try speeding up your shutter once in a while. Slowest is good, but you lose the motion of the water. Try 1/6th of a second, works perfect for ocean shots.

#3
Avoid star movement by shooting at 25 seconds or less. Also the shot is OOF so you will need to learn how to set your hyperfocal distance since it's near impossible to properly focus on stars automatically. Use your fastest fstop number.

#4
Also looks OOF, maybe the flower was blowing in the wind. It does have excellent DOF though. It's just a bit overexposed as you can see by the pinkish looking white areas on the petals. At 300mm you can shoot at f8 and still get good DOF and your odds of being in focus increase greatly.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the help.

#1 & #2
When I tried to brighten up #1 it made the rock on the bottom left to bright.. The same would happen on #2 but it was the rock on the right. Is there a a way to counter this affect in the camera?
I was trying to get the falling water to blur like in this picture http://www.alexwisephotography.net/blog/wp-content/uploads/2007/11/21.jpg (not mine). When I set the shuuter speed under 1sec I started to loose that affect.
In some other pictures with faster shutter speed it was catching water drops and spray that was cool too.

#3
I was using a tripod and pushing the button to take the shot. I think this caused a lot of the blur.  :gap:
I need to use the miror lockup and Long-Exposure Noise Reduction
I used the EF 18-55mm lens. 18mm and focus was turned all the way counterclockwise to focus at distance. Is this hyperfocal distance or is that something else?
By the fastest fstop number do you mean f/1.8 letting more light in? f/3.5 is as high as that lens goes. My other lens is 75-300mm not to nice for stars.


In the 2 pictures I like the second better. It appears crisper with less glare. What is CS3?

Mini thanks for the links. I read them but I have the cheap lens which doesn't have numbers on the lens except for focal length.
It sounds like making the aperture smaller will help to sharpen the picture quality in a larger depth of field. Hopefully I understood it correctly if not please correct me.

In #3 iso 1600, f/3.5, 30 sec exposure and focus was infinity.
If I understand correctly for stars, I should try I should try iso 1600, f/4 - f/4.5, 25sec exposure and do my best to focus on a bright star not just focus on infinity. Does this sound correct to you?

You should have a focal length on your camera that has an infinity symbol, that will be close to your hyperfocal distance. Set your focus manually on infinity.
Your sharpest photo with that lens will be shot at f22, that fstop will provide the least amount of distortion.

Well I went out back to night and played around with my camera and my EF-S 18-55mm.

Settings for the following pictures
ISO: 1600
Shutter Speed: 20s
Aperture: f4.5
Focal Length: 18.0mm
Flash fired: No
WB: Tungsten 3200k
Mirror lock: Enabled
Long Exp. Noise Reduction: On
Timer: 2sec

The only thing that changed was the focus.
I developed a crude method of measuring focus on this lens.
Starting with the lens all the way counterclockwise I holding my finger nail across the texture of the focus ring and I can count clicks. :shake_head: Did I mention I want a nice lens, but at least the focus is improving.

When I tried f/22 and iso1600 I got a black image.
sorry, I ment f22 setting for daytime only.
Nice trick with the focus. It works.
The one you picked does appear the best.
Sigma does make a nice lens, out of the two I own I love them. Just make sure you research all options and match it to what kind of photography you want to do. Lenses are a long time purchase, I've gone through 3 cameras and just keep adding lenses.
If you are going to be doing mostly landscape then I recommend the Sigma 10-20mm F3.5 EX DC HSM
To finished the kit get the Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 IF EX DG HSM and the Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG APOMacro HSM II
But, that is a lot of green to dish out.
You will get a feel for which lenses you use the most, for me it's anything wide angle.

Edit: Also any time you are on a tripod make sure the IS is off. For night turn on the High ISO Noise Reduction and the Long Exposure Noise Reduction, both in camera.

Title: Re: Photography
Post by: Cheesemaker on Sep 06, 2010, 11:52:47 AM
For backpacking, I'd look into a smaller camera.  A point and shoot will weigh in around a pound, and a DSLR will run ya at least 4 to 5 pounds without extra lenses.  A good point and shoot, now, will have at least 10 to 14 megapixels, and look for one with great optics.  Panasonic Lumix is producing a couple of models with killer optics, made by Leica, and has 14.1 megapixels, and with a 12X zoom.  So, you can get some killer pictures, and later go home and tweak them on them on the computer.  With programs like any from Adobe, or if you run Apple based system they have a good program.  Also a free photoediting program is Picassa from Google.   

I know after several hours lugging my camera (nikon D70) around, I wish I had a smaller camera also.

Got bored and re-worked this one. I don't usually stretch out to the creative side much, but this shot looked so plain SOOC that I had to try something.
What do you think? :dunno:

This was taken the other night. My tripod broke and im not stoked on the photo all that much. I only got 3 shots and this one came out the best but im pissed, its at ISO 800 so its way too grainy!

Heres the only way that a Steel Reserve beer should be used. This is with a .308 and i think 1/800 shutter speed.

Kyle my eyes are torn between the surfer and the dark area of the wave to the left.  I love the color of the water though.



On a side note, my mom has been wanting me to figure out what camera my wife wants for Christmas.  Well, here is the camera she has now, and it has been a damn good camera.  Rolled over 40-50,000 pictures with it.  Talk about a work horse.  http://www.nikon.com/about/news/2004/0916_05.htm  But it is showing it's age, and it's on it's last leg.

And here is the camera I feel is a killer replacement.  Nikon has stepped up their game on this point and shoot.  It's nice Nikon has finally decided to follow Canon by putting in a RAW mode in a point and shoot.  I'm really impressed with the stats this camera has, including manual features.
http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/P7000/P7000A.HTM
So, my mom is gonna check into it.  :crossed:  My wife deserves it.  Since there is no way we could afford this camera at this moment.

Hit SHARE THIS then GRAB THE HTML/BBC CODE then change from MEDIUM to LARGE then click on BBC CODE and copy and paste the code.

Like the car pics, last one is a little dark, try using evaluative metering because of the bright reflection. Also, align your camera height the same as your mirror, you will get the least perspective distortion that way.

Yeah, it's hard to get.
I used a 300mm Macro and that is a crop! I think you would need a 1200mm on a crop body camera to get the moon to fill the frame. The problem is that the moon moves so fast you have to re-adjust every time you shoot.

Where are you guys going this weekend?
Are you bringing your camera?

The wife and I are doing a photo walk from the bow and arrow in SF to Pier 7 at around 4pm
You're welcome to join us!

SF was fun, long but fun. We treked around for about 4 hours taking shots.

Im sure Mini has noticed, but has anyone else noticed how HDR photography is begining to be more popular? Now I dont know if its just me knowing about it and noticing it more or not, but it seems as if its getting wayyy more popular.

I have an iPhone 4 and on the newest update, it now is able to take HDR photos. I found it to be pretty cool, but a little unnecessary on a cell phone. Not just that but I have been noticing a lot more HDR videos like on YouTube.

Kyle, what do you recommend in filters? Is there a brand that is good but cheap?
Depends on what type of shot.
For landscape, Circular Polorizer and a Neutral Density 0.9 filter, Hoya and Heliopan make some nice ones.
That is probably the only filters I would invest in.
The rest can be done in photoshop.

Neutral density is a solid darker filter, right? Which is the half dark and half clear?

Thanks Kyle.  I really wasn't in the mood to run out the door at 7 am to take pictures that morning.  Yeah, this little camera kicks my D70's ass in alot of ways.  But you are talking about 5 years difference in cameras. 

On a side note, I donated some pictures I framed for the Outdoor School fundraiser that I volunteer at, and got some enthusiasm to get more pictures.  And I got some names and numbers of some people that want to buy some of my stuff.   :willynilly:

What do you mean by saturation levels?
Title: Re: Photography
Post by: MiniSimp on Nov 08, 2010, 10:37:09 AM
The blue sky is a little too bright blue and is distracting from the focus of the picture, which I can assume was in the shade?
Switching to "spot" metering will draw more focus to your subjects (when small like that) if there is a brighter background.
Title: Re: Photography
Post by: jrock on Nov 08, 2010, 11:00:27 AM
Would that bleach out the sky?
Title: Re: Photography
Post by: MiniSimp on Nov 08, 2010, 11:23:53 AM
All depends on how close you are. Spot meters the center 9% of your image. As it is now, your subject is too dark.

Quite possibly one of my best photograph, and the most important to me. In remembrance of my best friend, Tom Marovich, who was killed during a training excercize at a fire in Nor-Nor-Cal in 2009. The capitol flew the flag at half mast. Drove up to Sacramento to snap some pictures. A couple slight changes in Lightroom...

Your last picture Kyle, almost creeps me out!!  :ack:  Borderline horror movie style.  First thought, Children of the Corn!!  :outtahere:




Lately I've been very frustrated, the lighting has been incredible lately, and I just haven't had time to stop and get pictures.  Been so busy.  But there is a point that I get tired of packing my camera everywhere, and I'm not enjoying the moment.  So, there are times I have to forget the camera.  But I'm still making mental notes on where to go!!  And there is one spot I really want to go, but I need to buy some rope and a harness, and climb down to the river about 50 feet below the road.  So, my fat ass needs to get in shape.

So my wife finally bought the Olympus PEN E-PL1  we've been reading through the manual for the past two days. Figured some stuff out but we're having a hard time taking moving pictures w/o them turning out really blurry. It has these presets for taking certain types of pictures but they don't seem to work very well. I just uploaded the pictures to the computer and they look grainy on the computer as well, but look great on that small LED....

Should look much better on my 23" LED you'd think... although the picture is much larger... it is a 12 megapixel camera

Suppose I have some more reading to do!

so another odd thing, the Olympus takes HD video which I thought was a really cool feature. Until I figured out that it will only take up to like a 2mb video which is about 1 min 20 sec's then it will automatically stop. It states in the manual that the camera get's hot when shooting video for a long period of time. It also says if you plan on shooting a movie with it (which i'm assuming is a longer recording time)  then use a SD Speed 6 card. Anyone know anything about a SD speed 6 card?  i'm actually getting ready to do some research but i'm wondering how this allows the camera to record for a longer period of time if heat is an issue w/ the camera.

I would hope that you can record for longer periods of time because that's the main reason I got the 16gb SD card for it, also in the commercial it states that the entire commercial is recorded with the camera itself. I would hope they didn't make a 5-10 minute commercial in 1 minute and 20 second increments.... almost like false advertising.



EDIT:  1 minutes of searching, lol...

http://www.sdcard.org/developers/tech/speed_class/

Sounds like a SD Speed 10 is the best for full HD video. They're about double the price of a normal SD card!

If you watch most movies or tv you will notice that each cut is between 5-30 seconds normally.
There should be an overide for that though.

it is when the white is so bright that it blows out the pixels to the point where you lose detail and usually has a pink tinge to it.

I've been wanting to get out and shoot some pics.  But the weather has been so crappy, aka Downpour.  (averaging over a 1" a day)  Or when I get off work, it's almost dark, and no time to go and grab some evening pics.  And on the days off, I've been playing catchup on things that can't be done after work due to it being dark.

You always shoot in such a low f/, whenever I try to shoot that low I get a lot of depth. Are your shots more in focus because of all the lights you use?
Title: Re: Photography
Post by: MiniSimp on Jan 28, 2011, 09:28:00 AM
Depends on each shot.

For landscape I shoot between f8 and f11 depending on what lens I am using, as each lens has a sharpness "sweet spot" to it.
For portraits/close up I shoot as low as possible in order to get only my subject in perfect focus and everything else out of focus.

This is a really good DOF calculator that I use for portrait/close up work http://www.tawbaware.com/maxlyons/calc.htm

You can find your lens sweet spot here (any review that has "tested" next to it) http://www.slrgear.com/reviews/showcat.php/cat/2
Example in attached photo for the Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM

You will also need to find your camera's Circle of Confusion

Slow moving airplane in the starry night?
Did you manually lock open the shutter?  Does that kill your battery fast?  I know when I do long exposure, my batteries go quick.

Just got back from Pullman, WA.  I had a cheese making class I attended there, that the company paid for four of us to go to.  And even though the fields were freshly plowed and planted, I wish I had time to get photos.  But I plan on going back there with the wife one day.  Just to take pictures.  The rolling hills were awesome.  We kept thinking that a sandrail would just rule the hills.  Just endless miles of rolling hills in all directions for hours in any way you went.  I had my camera, but no time to stop and take pictures.  Were on a deadline the whole time.  Here is a link to some pictures I found on the net.  Kyle, you would love the area.

That's the place Kyle.   :thumbs:  Even just in the raw dirt that the fields are in now, it was beautiful.  Alot of old barns and old equipment out in the fields.  I'm definitely making a list when I go somewhere.  I just recently "got lost" out in the Hillsboro area recently and found myself out in some old farmland that urban sprawl hasn't gotten to yet.  That would be great to photograph.

Right now, it's hard for me to just stop and get pictures.  I'm usually running behind, or the kids are in cranky mood, which also puts mommy in to cranky mood too!  So, these are things that I have to just take some time and do alone.  But, I've got a long list of things that needs done before I can just go and shoot pictures.

Thanks LB.  :thumbs:  I finally was able to get out and shoot pictures the other day.  We've had nothing but torrential downpours lately.  We had like 40 days of straight rain everyday.  Some days we get breaks in the weather, but they were short lived.  I was glad the weather has been starting to let us out of the house.  The first one I had to step down off the trail to get the action of the water.  And I wasn't able to hunker down to get a more level shot.  I did the best I could do.  And try to get the log and fern in the shot.  The second picture, just imagine if you turned the camera around 180*, you'd be looking through a 6" culvert.  I had to freehand a series of that shot.  The stream of water is narrower than a can of pop.  I was just screwing around to see what I could get.

When you shoot into the sun, use your flash.

So that cancels out the light coming straight at you?

No, it fills in the sihoulettes that the sun creates.

I hope it's a good one. I read reviews and watched YouTube videos on it, seemed like a good deal. I can't wait to post pics and learn all it can do!

I agree.. I went there a few weeks ago and left my camera in my car and we took a friends car instead, so, I didnt get any photos. I was pissed. I did go to the locks the day before and got a few cool photos. The locks are pretty sweet......

Off topic, but you should go walk around the dock down the road from the locks where the Deadliest Catch boats all stay at. Theres a pretty sweet fishermen memorial. Oh, and its actually pretty much the only place in Seattle that had free parking too!

My D70 has been giving me some issues lately.  I was gonna borrow my moms D300, just to see if it was just me, or the camera. 

I think I just need to get a better tripod, and start to slow things down a little more, to get some better low light shots.  I've been told to start playing with the white balance to get the colors in the sky to pop more.  Sometimes, I'm impatient with this stuff.

Whoops, I quoted the wrong reply. Got Wermz' reply in there now

1) Create a Wikipedia account

2) Edit some content on Wikipedia to get your account status good

3) Upload your photo to Wiki Commons http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Main_Page

4) Edit the HDRI Wikipedia page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_dynamic_range_imaging) and include your really cool image posted above. There are only 2 example images on the HDRI page (NYC at night and some building) so your image I believe would really compliment that Wiki entry!

As some of you know I use a Nikon D70.  And I got to borrow my mom's Nikon D300, since she is having eye sight issues.  Cataract surgery is in her future, and she's wanting a lighter and smaller camera.  So, I got to get some sunset photos with the D300.  Way better camera than my grandfather of a D70.

And for fun, here is a couple with my D70.  They are both awesome cameras, but the D300 definitely has an edge to it.

So, the first and last pictures, are almost identical, but with two different cameras, and lenses.  They are very close, and hard to tell which one has higher MP.

Threw it up in the air, sliced it Ninja quick before it hit the cutting board, ran back to the camera and pushed the button.
Very tiring. :gap:

how do you get such depth?
Title: Re: Photography
Post by: MiniSimp on Jan 04, 2012, 12:05:05 PM
how do you get such depth?
1. Perspective (same photo taken from above will look flat)
2. Large Aperature (using an f1.4 lens allows a shorter DOF than an f4-5.6 lens would)
3. Distance to subject (the closer you are, the more your background goes OOF)

It's been awhile since I've gotten my camera out, since I've working 4/10's.  Which was last fall.  And lately we have been crazy at work, being short handed, and other misc. breakdowns and such.  So, most my weekends have been very lazy and playing catchup around the house.  That and the 40 months of ugle rainy, crappy weather.  I'm sick of rain.  But on a whim the other day, got to go out to BayOcean Spit early in the morning.  And found some favorable weather.  About an hour after I took the last photo, it starting pouring again.

Ordered some ND filters, and they showed up with some scratches on them.  They came in plastic containers without any protection.  But I checked out my split one, and I think I'm gonna like it.  Once I get one that isn't scratched. Granted, I didn't get the high end ones.  But I figured I'd go cheaper and decide if I need to get some high end ones later.   :(

Don't worry about the scratches, they won't matter much unless you are shooting at f/45

So, I had one hell of a week.  And after having to deal with Insurance, and the body shop.  (wife backed into a concrete wall  :shake_head: )  Spending most of a week with only one rig.  My mom decided I needed to get our Xmas present early.  Don't ask!!

Well, she got us a new camera.  I don't need a new camera, I just needed a lens fixed and a new tripod.  Which would have been $250-300 at best.  But no, she had to get me a $900 setup.  She got me the Nikon D3100 setup from Costco, and it was $250 off.   
http://www.costco.com//.product.11622027.html?utm_campaign=bazaarvoice&utm_medium=SearchVoice&utm_source=RatingsAndReviews&utm_content=Default

she has been hinting for some time about a new camera for me, but I kept telling her that I was very happy with my Nikon D70.  So, after a couple days staring at the box, been too busy to deal with it, I finally opened it up.  And after I examined it, put the battery and flashcard in, set it up, and started playing with it.  I'm very disappointed with it. 

Here is my thoughts:
~this is a entry level DSLR, basically a point and shoot with interchangeable lenses.  I'm used to a lower mid level camera, D3100 is entry level.
~too small for my hands, I like the larger body camera.   
~the attachment for the lens is mostly plastic, which has always been metal.
~it does have the sensor cleaner, deqauzer, and will clean on startup.
~14.2 MP vs. the 6 MP the D70 has.
~SD card, vs the harder to find CF card.

I haven't taken any photos with it, but I'll tell you that I won't give up my D70.  I like how it feels in my hands better overall, but I'll see the verdict in a couple weeks.  I will have both of them when I go out to shoot photos.

Finished a wood boring beetle damage survey for the National Park Service this past weekend on Alcatraz Island. Also one of my friends did an interview with KQED about a type of millipede that is fluorescent under black lights that he found on the island that were never documented there. Disclaimer I am not nearly as good as some of the people in this thread, these were just taken with your run of the mill Sony Supersteadyshot.

So, this post hasn't seen any picture love in a while!!  So, I got some to place here.

So, back in June, we stayed late into the evening to get some sunset pictures of the Wreck of the Peter Iredale, near Warrenton, Oregon.

(https://board.marlincrawler.com/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi54.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fg95%2Fbeerman_2006%2Ffamily%2520nature%2520pics%2FDSC_9965.jpg&hash=2034cd19d72bc17dd4302a1aad554d75)

And just last friday we went out to Silver Falls State Park just east of Salem, Oregon.
Out of ten waterfalls, we only got to see 4 of the falls.  And several of them, you can walk behind the falls.  Which gives a wonderful view of a waterfall, without getting wet. 

This is Upper South Falls.

This is my favorite.  Which is Lower South Falls.

And the waterfalls were taken with a slower shutter speed, and no tripod.  So, I feel good about them.

I shoot with an Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II. Got some good work in this summer while traveling to the West Coast.  I typically carry a variable lens on the camera but have fallen in love with the fixed 75mm Micro Four Thirds lens offered by Olympus.

Both of these were shot with that lens.

Only to switch from color to black and white and increase the grain a bit.  It was a very lucky shot with fog all around that rock and sun beaming down straight on it.  Really makes it pop!
