Title: yay, photography! (thumbnails or links only, pls.)
Post by: woonie on 03 Jul 2008, 07:25
Okay since the last photography thread is locked, and a small request (http://forums.questionablecontent.net/index.php/topic,7647.msg671045.html#msg671045) on how to run the next one, here's the new photography thread.

New rule:
Thumbnails and/or links only.

That's all.

So to start this thread off:

That first photo is amazing.

Thankee kindly. I very much like the lighting in your orchestra pics too. I havent' done B&W film for too long; I had a bathroom studio set up and everything, I should do it again someday.

(I'm a bit alarmed to note that the left hand side of my pics seem a bit soft; that lens wasn't cheap...  :-( )

the first seven or eight are the new ones i was planning on showing specifically but i guess you can look at the other ones too, if you want.

I also did a bit of dicking around with off-camera flash. This is some flowers, illuminated in an unconventional manner:

I just scanned a bunch of old photos to put on an online portfolio (sending it to schools that aren't art schools). it is to show them that I actually do things other than sitting around with my friends watching gossip girl (cough).

from oldest to newest!

about a year ago, you might have seen this one already: 3 (http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3064/2981818881_e8f8322263.jpg?v=0)

first (and still favorite I think) polaroid emulsion: 4 (http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3293/2981819591_2860e6f549.jpg?v=0)

peoples' backs in france, taken last february: 5 (http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3022/2982676950_1193392272.jpg?v=0) 6 (http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3025/2982676066_5858cf9d06.jpg?v=0) 7 (http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3247/2981819321_05e2eb70ae.jpg?v=0)

a stranger's baby, last spring: 8 (http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3252/2981819737_9dd9d149ec.jpg?v=0)


rrghh this makes me so nervous. I'm not necessarily applying as an art major so I am trying to calm down but having people look at my work makes me so antsy. I will probably spend all night rescanning/touching up, I think I need to scan at a higher resolution maybe?

No filters at all, that is straight from the camera. And I used my little compact digital as always! It is all I have.

if anyone is curious, only 2, 3, 5 and 7 went into the portfolio.

thanks elcap! what've you been up to lately, photography-wise? haven't seen any of your stuff for ages, but that coffee looks wonderful, so well-lit. shooting digital?

speaking of digital, I'm looking into buying a used dslr (not really something I can afford right now, but whatever, who needs a car?). I think I'm ready to go into color photography. it's funny, because a lot of people think that making a picture black and white automatically makes it look "arty" and improves the shot. you really have to pay attention to composition and tones when shooting black and white, which is why a lot of photography programs make you start with it. but I am craving color, though, and color film + processing fees are going to stack up, so while I love being in the darkroom, looks like I might be headed towards digital. I've heard good things about nikon (I'm lucky enough to own a canon slr) but I'm also looking at pentax and maybe olympus.

I agree. Shame about how opaque the shadow is on the second one; the head doesn't quite fit in smoothly against the bridge lighting, but i really like the black and white one. Really captures the seemingly synthetic feel of the surroundings.

I really like that last shot ally, I would probably pay for a print of that if it was for sale.

I took some photos for my film school application today, pretty pleased with how they turned out, if anyone has any advice I'd be glad to hear it.

I'm digging the shots of morgan and the depth of field in that grave stone pic - I particularly like the composition of 7 (which might be cool cropped tighter near her head) and 10. and oh god thank you for shooting digital and not feeling the need to photoshop your pictures, the colors look so nice as they are.

Haha, I'd like to pretend it's an artistic choice not to try and photoshop them but mostly it is because photoshop is completely bewildering to me so I try to just shoot it right.

OK, so here's one of the better things I've captured on my recent travels around India:

I'm pretty happy with it. If you like it, can I ask a huge favour? If you have a Digg account, and like the photo, and don't mind (of course!), could you go to this page (http://digg.com/travel_places/Fantastic_shot_of_the_Taj_Mahal) and digg it up? I want to see how much play I can get out of this whole Web 2.0 thing... :)

Want to see something that'll break your heart? I don't usually take pictures of people living in poverty, but I saw this today and I had to take out the camera and capture it. I mean, I've been here for months but I still can't get close to the blithe ignorance Indians show to, say, a pair of ragged street kids sleeping in the middle of an intersection.

I moved them off the street and gave them a couple of rupees for food (the girl in particular looked like she was starving), but I couldn't do anything more. I hated that feeling so much I felt sick.

And this is a country that has the balls to tell the West, hey, maybe you shouldn't be discussing our problems (i.e. the ruckus surrounding Slumdog Millionaire/Crorepati).

God I love all your photos from India. I love pictures like that, I really want to travel to India actually! It is on my list!

So I am not really a good photographer, but I saw some really interesting dogs on the way home and am kinda proud of the results

The dog with the different colour eyes was what struck me about them. His eyes were really just that piercing. Maybe it was the light reflecting off the snow, but I have never seen such eyes. I tried not to really edit them much except for some cropping, and some desaturation in the last one.

I really like those landscape pics. It makes me think of the american midwest and all the little villages spaced out over there [is this where the pics were taken? sorry if it wasn't but i think its the greyscale that makes it seem that way] that all the novelists and songwriters write about. It just seems different enough from the open lands we get in the UK to seem to have that eerie mystique about it.  :-)

Post by: elcapitan on 22 Feb 2009, 06:36
Be My Head, I like your shots, but I think they could do with a little more contrast and attention to colour. It looks like you've just opened them in Photoshop or Lightroom and changed the colour mode to "Greyscale" - I don't know if you've done any proper B&W stuff, but as counter-intuitive as it sounds, the colour balance is actually really important.

(Unless maybe you deliberately went for that dreamscape low-contrast feel, in which case I take it all back.) :)

Anyway, here are some shots from Mumbai. Specifically, they're from Dharavi, the biggest slum in Asia (and incidentally, the focal point of the action in Slumdog Millionaire, although I'd been planning a visit well before the movie was released). This place is intense; 1.7 square kilometres, with a population somewhere between 600,000 and a million people. Despite the fact that they have almost no toilets and daily queues for water, the residents are some of the nicest, most welcoming people I met in Mumbai - but it's still a pretty unsettling place to walk around.

The shots themselves are well below my usual standard, but I like them for what they portray. The light was unworkable in most places in Dharavi, and I would have given my right testicle for a decent off-camera flash. (Also, I'd had more than a couple of beers with some Jogeshwari locals before I went there.) But still...

I don't suppose you could point me to a resource from which I could begin to learn technique and artistry? I'm hoping to take an introductory photo course at SVA (the School of Visual Arts here in New York) over the summer, and go on to a BFA from the same place, but at the moment all I have are a DSLR and ambition.

As well, just how big a difference does gear (and more importantly the cost of gear) make? Is it at all possible for someone to take shots like the ones you posted above with consumer-grade lenses?

I'm hoping to take an introductory photo course at SVA (the School of Visual Arts here in New York) over the summer, and go on to a BFA from the same place, but at the moment all I have are a DSLR and ambition.

I personally haven't taken a professional course since my Year 9 photography class, which involved processing black and white film from an old Pentax SLR. So I'm almost completely self-taught, which is a whole lot easier these days. Why? The Internet!

That's a bit of a throwaway comment, but it's definitely true. There is so much information on the Internet about photography that it will make your head spin. The trick is winnowing the good stuff from the bullshit, unfortunately. What kind of information are you looking at to start with? How much do you know about photography and DSLRs? I can either give you some tips myself or point you in the right direction.

(That said, taking an introductory course is probably a really good idea if you have no experience!)

The big mistake when you're starting out, I think, is to get into the high-tech stuff too quickly (HDR, off-camera flash, etc.). You need to take time to develop your own style and sense of composition - this is something that you can't just pick up overnight. It's good to start with the simple stuff, and spend a while experimenting with it until you get a real sense for what you're working with. (If it's at all possible, you should consider getting an old non-digital SLR and shooting ten or twenty rolls of film with it over the course of a couple of months. It's amazing what not having a Delete button will do for your shot selection.) This leads on to the next point...

As well, just how big a difference does gear (and more importantly the cost of gear) make? Is it at all possible for someone to take shots like the ones you posted above with consumer-grade lenses? What is the balance between artistry and incredible equipment when it comes to digital shooting in particular?

Umm. This is a tough one. At the end of the day, yes, gear makes a difference. But I definitely agree with Jeans that it's not all that important for a beginning photographer. The differences in quality between low- and high-end gear are often quite subtle and (in many cases) not even readily apparent until you start blowing up shots or printing them. Plus, there are plenty of very good photographers who use cheap gear, even to the point of only using point-and-shoots; some even consider it to be part of the challenge.

For reference, all my shots recently have been taken with a Nikon D80, an older, lower-end DSLR from their range. They're pretty popular because the build quality is high and they can take really nice shots if you treat them right, but it's still a consumer camera instead of a professional camera. It's been great for me, but I am definitely at the stage now where I want to upgrade to a better camera, probably either a D200 or D300. (I feel I'm starting to hit the limit technically with what I can do with the D80.)

I use two lenses more than any other:

1) The kit lens (i.e. the lens that came with the camera), which lacks clarity in areas but has a great zoom and is basically a solid, compact lens for travelling, and
2) A Tokina 11-16mm ultra-wide angle lens, which was a recent investment and is much more of a professional-level tool, but still only cost me something in the hundreds (rather than thousands, which is what a lot of hardcore lenses go for).

So basically, yes, you can take almost all of my photos with consumer gear, because that's how I've done it! :)

As far as "artistry vs. gear" goes, it really depends on how creative you are. The so-called "digital darkroom" is an absolutely integral part of digital photography, and you can do some incredible things with software these days. But at some point, you will need to actually have light pass through a lens and fall onto a sensor, and if you can't get that to work right, then the rest of the process is more difficult. :S

Hope that helps, I'm happy to answer any questions you have. I just like talking about photography. :)

Oh man, I still have my Pentax KX on my shelf, it looks a lot like that one. It's a really nice old camera, and I owe it more time, especially for portraits (I've only got a 50mm lens for it).

Neebin: Nice colours! If I may make a suggestion, though, try making sure that the horizons in your shots are, well, horizontal. :)

I've got a very similar looking Pentacon Praktica LTL 2 which I inherited from my father, and all it needs to be fully functional is a nice once-over (the mirror and kit lens probably need a good polish) and a battery for the light meter (sadly the intended batteries for the thing are mercury-based and thus illegal, but I've found alkaline replacements).

It's been sitting on a shelf for months; I decided when I received it that I'd first buy a DSLR, learn the basics, profit from the ability to instantly analyze my mistakes, then take up film when I felt comfortable behind the lens. I'm starting to debate how efficient that method will prove to be, but either way now I have the opportunity for both methods at my fingertips.

I've been scouring the internet for resources but it's very hard to find a straightforward this is what you should know before you go out and take pictures, and these are the things you should keep in mind sort of lesson. I was pointed to Kelby Training today, and I'm enjoying the lessons so far, but their free trial is somewhat limited and I'm not convinced enough to make the investment yet.

Any tips are greatly appreciated. I know my way around the camera fairly well (a few of my friends have Canon Rebel models so despite it being brand new, I'm quite comfortable with this XSi), I'm just not sure what to do now that I have it. Do I go out and shoot just anything with no idea how to apply my theoretical knowledge of aperture and exposure?

So these are the first results from my new DSLR. They are my favorites out of about 150 shots. I am kind of pleased with them but I have a lot of work to do.

Can someone explain the rule of thirds as applied to portraits? It's a bit harder to judge creative compositional elements on the human face and even more so when it comes to the body.

Post by: Be My Head on 03 Mar 2009, 18:20
The goal of portrait should be to capture someone's personality and mannerisms, if it's a full or partial body shot and not a close up you would use the rule of thirds the same way you would any way.

Also, I'll give you the advice I was given which was "Force the flash, take the picture outside on a clear sunny day, zoom in with an optical lens, stand far back, and make sure to have your camera's portrait mode on.

Also, your pictures look pretty out of focus, I'm not sure if there's an auto focus? Or if you can set it to a reasonable distance when you take pictures?

I'm shooting with a Canon Rebel XSi. Most of these were taken with a 50mm f/1.8 lens.

They're out of focus because a) the auto-focus on Canon lenses has a mind of it's own, and b) I was too worried about exposing properly (these were taken in a dark concert venue on a backlit stage that was flooded in orange glow from an overhead light- pretty awful lighting conditions) to use manual focus.

The lens I was using is prime so I didn't have the option of standing far back and zooming in.

I guess I was taking what I can get with these. I'll post some daylight pictures for comparison when I take some.

The goal of portrait should be to capture someone's personality and mannerisms, if it's a full or partial body shot and not a close up you would use the rule of thirds the same way you would any way.

I'm going to go and draw up some guides that might help you apply the rule of thirds to portraits. Might take me a day or two, but I'll try. The important thing is not to use it when you think it looks dodgy.

Also, I'll give you the advice I was given which was "Force the flash, take the picture outside on a clear sunny day, zoom in with an optical lens, stand far back, and make sure to have your camera's portrait mode on.

Umm. I don't necessarily agree with this. There's nothing actually wrong with most of it, it's just not really conducive to taking good portraits. Here's why I think so, arranged in terms of your points:

1) "Force the flash". I think what you're trying to say here is "Use fill flash." This can be a good idea, provided you use it well. In almost all natural-lighting portraits, you can only pull this off if you can really drill down the flash's TTL reading manually, say to two or three EVs below the default. Why? Because otherwise you get the same horribly washed-out, pasty look that you can get from a point-and-shoot with the flash on. Also, if you're using an on-camera flash, you may want to think twice about using it to fill, since they have a nasty habit of producing a rabbit-in-headlights effect. If you have access to an off-camera flash (or a reflector, etc.) then yes, fill-flash is a great thing and will help out heaps.

2) "Take the picture outside on a clear, sunny day." Well yes, this can be a nice setting for a portrait, if you're sufficiently able to control the subject and the lighting conditions. Problem is, most of the time, you won't be. If you shoot in the middle of the day, you must be careful of a phenomenon known as "raccoon eyes" - shadows falling across the subject's eyes from their eyebrows. (On the other hand, sunset is my favourite time for candid portraiture, since you more-or-less lose this problem and get some gorgeous texturing on faces.)

My real issue with your statement is that portraits can be taken ANYWHERE if you can get the light right (and often, crucially, the white balance). In a dark room with a single overhead fluoro without using a flash - difficult, but not impossible. The trick is learning to take your conditions and get a photo from them. Again, off-camera flashes will help out immeasurably here.

3) "Zoom in with an optical lens." I assume you use optical as opposed to digital here, which should be blindingly obvious to begin with - the vast majority of DSLRs don't even have digital zooms for a very good reason, i.e. they're shit. Even getting past that, zooming in has some good points and many bad points. Let's list them:

Good:
 - Because you're more distant from the subject, they may be more candid in their actions, allowing you to get a more natural shot.
 - Fine-tuning your zoom allows you more control over the composure. (This is a pretty big plus.)
 - That's pretty much it.

Bad:
 - Because you're zoomed, you're more prone to camera shake. For portraits, you want crispness above all else (you can add a vaseline-lens effect in post-production, but unless you're really sure that's what you're shooting, you do not want it through the lens). Many low-end zoom lenses lose available aperture as they get more zoomed in; my Nikkor 18-135mm, for example, starts at f/3.5 at 18mm but goes to f/5.6 at 135mm, which is absolutely useless for anything that moves. If you're using a low-end DSLR, you may not be able to go higher than, say, ISO 400 before you start getting unacceptable noise. You want a shutter speed no slower than 1/125 to get consistently crisp portraits with any zoom higher than, say, 50mm on a non-full-frame sensor. The constraints are NOT conducive to taking nice portraits - believe me, I've tried.
 - Another aspect of the falloff of available aperture with zoom is the loss of a tight depth of field, which is generally highly desirable for portraits.
 - Most cheap zoom lenses have optimal optical clarity between about 25mm and 50mm. The more you zoom after that, the more prone you are to things like chromatic aberration, clarity falloff, barrel distortion, etc. These can be corrected in post-production to some extent, but why bother if you don't have to have them to begin with?
 - The more zoomed you are, the tighter your perspective. It's a matter of choice, but in my experience, people prefer portraits that have a wider perspective (up to a point - portraits taken at 11mm can look really cool, but more often they can look really munted).
 - Did I mention the camera shake thing? It's an absolute show-stopper, even with the vibration-resistance tech in the newer lenses.

4) "Stand far back". Again, you have the benefit of not getting in the persons space, which can be good if you're taking a candid or action portrait. But otherwise, why? Stand where you want if it makes the portrait look good. And, of course, the further back you stand, the more you'll have to zoom in, which leads to all my points above.

5) "Make sure you have your camera's portrait mode on." Alternatively, you could, I don't know, maybe learn how to use your camera. If you have a DSLR and you're only shooting on the automatic modes, you wasted your money - you could get similar results with a good point and shoot. Learn how to use the aperture-priority mode, the shutter-speed-priority mode, the program mode, and (most of all) the manual mode. Learn how to read histograms. If you just trust the metering in your camera, you'll get a few nice exposures, a lot of average exposures, and a fair whack of terrible exposures too.

Quote
Also, your pictures look pretty out of focus, I'm not sure if there's an auto focus? Or if you can set it to a reasonable distance when you take pictures?

This is a fair point. If you have any recent combination of DSLR and lens, auto-focus should work out fine. (If it's a prime 50mm, the autofocus should be nails-fast, too.)

Low-light conditions can make life really hard, though, since autofocus relies on light. Most, if not all DSLRs have a little lamp that will light up to help the autofocus do it's thing - make sure this is turned on (you may want to be careful with this at gigs, though, since some musicians get really pissy about having lights shone in their eyes while they're playing). Alternatively, you can try pointing the camera directly at a light source roughly the same distance from your camera's focal plane as the subject, focusing on that by pushing the shutter down halfway, and then recomposing the shot around the subject before fully pressing the shutter. This can work well in some conditions; in others, it won't work at all. Experimentation! :)

Which leads me to one tip for portraits: focus for the eyes. As above, you can get this with autofocus by simply pointing the little reticule in the middle of the viewfinder at the subject's eyes, holding down the shutter halfway to get the focus, recomposing the shot without moving your finger, and then taking the photo.

Hey thread. I am thinking of getting a camera with my stimulus package, specifically trying to get a second-hand canon EOS 40D body for $900 or less, and buying lenses new. I'm a journalism student, and will mostly be learning to use it for freelancing (online and newspapers) and assignments. I'm mainly thinking canon because people I know use canon, so I'd be able to borrow specific gear from them if I needed to. Is this a good idea? Does anyone read this thread?
Title: Re: yay, photography! (thumbnails or links only, pls.)
Post by: Ballard on 16 Apr 2009, 05:08
Occasionally people read this thread.

I got a Canon for much the same reason, as well as because I poked around some Nikons and didn't really like the way they felt. The other brands with consumer-grade DSLRs currently on the market (Olympus, Sony's new Alpha series) are laughable.

Are you starting completely from scratch as a photographer? If you are, I suggest getting a Canon EOS Rebel XSi (they might go by EOS 450D in Australia) brand new and treating yourself to an extra lens. You simply won't need the extra features on the 40D for long enough to justify getting it.

For reference, all the pictures I've posted in this thread (in the last few pages) were taken with an XSi and various EF lenses, primarily the 50mm f/1.8 Mark II.

Yeah, I've actually used the 400D a little bit (I think it's the 450D's predecessor?). As I said, I'm a journalism student (and actually currently working for a magazine, though I don't do any photography) so if I'm going to be spending this much money I'd like to get something that will be decent for freelance stories, and capable of taking newspaper/online quality shots later on when I learn how to use it better.

Post by: ViolentDove on 16 Apr 2009, 19:01
Not too sure on the lenses, yet!

Probably a 50 mm lens for doing lower light gig shots and such, and some kind of zoomy lens as well... I don't know, I'm open to suggestions.

Love the juxtaposition between the color of the sky and the colors of the streetlights. Might stretch this to make it my wallpaper for the day if you dont mind?

Honestly a lot of fisheye lenses are misused or mislabeled. Many are just super wide-angle lenses that produce a slight "fisheye" effect at the sides of the image.

The common sense rules of photography and composition still apply. If your subject matter is boring or composition poor, your image won't be interesting, funky lens or not.

That's the issue I have with most fisheye photography.

Paul, those pictures have a lovely grainy quality to them that is usually tell-tale of older film cameras. How did that happen?

Babpacih, I really like that Bic shot.

Post by: pwhodges on 31 May 2009, 14:40
I don't make that effect deliberately; I guess it's just the way it is with that camera and my processing workflow.

The D7 is a 5Mpx camera with a fairly small sensor, so a bit noisy.  However, unlike other users of the same Sony sensor, Minolta added very little processing in the camera - Sony themselves, by contrast, applied both sharpening of the luminance and exaggeration of the colours to make pictures more "vivid"*.  Minolta also preserved the full colour range of the sensor, using a colour space that is much wider than sRGB, and somewhat wider than Adobe's - this makes unprocessed pictures look dull when viewed by people/systems that are not colour-space aware.  The 7x zoom lens is superb, and the combination of lens and sensor gives no colour fringing at all, unlike many of the competing cameras.  However, the lens (like any fast wide-range zoom - it is the equivalent of 28-200 f/2.8-3.5) has a lot of distortion, including gull-wing distortion at the wide end. 

So my workflow starts by running PTLens (http://epaperpress.com/ptlens/) to correct the distortion (this program has the characteristics of most lenses programmed in, and reads the EXIF data to adjust the parameters according to the focal length for each shot).  I then run an all-in-one enhancement program, DCE AutoEnhance (http://www.mediachance.com/dce/index.html), that changes the colour space to sRGB and then does a raft of other things (noise reduction, contrast adjustment, sharpening, et al) which can be enabled or disabled individually, and which can be adjusted to different degrees according to the EXIF data (mainly shutter speed, ISO setting, focal length, flash usage).  I have this set up so that I like what it does in 90% of cases, and I can treat any others individually if I want (using more sophisticated noise reduction, like Neat Image (http://www.neatimage.com/), for example).

So, now you know what I do, but it doesn't really tell you what makes that effect (a combination of low colour fringing and modest colour noise reduction is what it comes down to, I suppose).

* When Sony bought out Minolta's camera division and rebranded their SLRs as Sony alpha, they had the good sense to retain Minolta's trade-mark conservative level of processing rather than changing it to be like their other cameras.

ATTN CAMERA GEEKS

I'm looking to make an investment into my first DLSR, I'll be on a budget for a long while so I'm looking for something that'll last me a while. Now I've been looking at the Nikon d60 and the d90 as well as the intro canon models.

I'm looking into doing more portrait work and will likely be working in dim lighting quite a bit. I'm not exactly completely new to cameras, but digital is a new frontier really.

I would REALLY appreciate your thoughts about what is best for value, durability, and the difference between them. And if any other suggestions pop up that'd be lovely too.
Title: Re: yay, photography! (thumbnails or links only, pls.)
Post by: ibrahimdelil on 22 Jun 2009, 01:28
a canon 450d and a canon 50mm f1.8 (or 50mm f1.4 if you could spare some more money) would serve your needs for a long while. i don't know much about nikons though, i chose a canon because they're are more common in my social circle so i can borrow stuff when i can't afford'em.
Title: Re: yay, photography! (thumbnails or links only, pls.)
Post by: Ballard on 22 Jun 2009, 06:09
That's one of the reasons I chose Canon as well. I trade lenses with friends all the time because we often shoot in groups or pairs. Also I just like the way EOS feels more than Nikon. Your camera needs to feel like an extension of your hands and be smooth and easy to use at a split second's notice. Nikon's interface seemed cluttered and confusing to me, though I'm sure others have it the other way around. It's strictly a matter of preference.

The 50mm f/1.8 is a great lens! If you can find a Mark I, they are only $50 more expensive (they don't manufacture them or sell them retail anymore but you can pick up a new or mint one on eBay or craigslist easily) and even better. Distance scale, metal mount ring and generally better build quality.

The Canon 450D in North America goes by Canon Digital Rebel XSi (to avoid confusion). It's what I use and it's served me well!

So my options at this point are the Canon 450D, the Canon 500D, and the Nikon d90. I am leaning towards the 450D or the Nikon d90.

I will be getting it sometimes this week. Eeeee.
Title: Re: yay, photography! (thumbnails or links only, pls.)
Post by: ibrahimdelil on 30 Jun 2009, 00:53
this page (http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/nikond90/page25.asp) would help you a bit then, i guess. the d90 is a bit too expensive in my opinion, i mean, it doesnt offer anything that makes it $400 better than the 450d except the 720p video recording feature.

Post by: Drill King on 02 Jul 2009, 18:52

Hey guys,

I finally got the camera working that I got like a month ago.

It's a Yashica Electro 35, and the problem was that they no longer make the batteries for them. But I put in a 6v with extra spring (that was the hard part, finding a place that sells springs).

I might soon be joining your ranks. I really hope it works.

So, my parents recently bought me a Sony a200 camera as an early Christmas gift.  I really don't know much about more serious cameras like this; does anyone know of any good sites or books I can learn a few things from?  I don't really plan on getting into heavy detail and technicals and stuff, just how to utilize the best of what I have, you know?  I also have a little bit of knowledge in Photoshop.
Title: Re: yay, photography! (thumbnails or links only, pls.)
Post by: Thomas Edison on 06 Dec 2009, 06:19
I have the a300, so I think they're pretty much the same?

It all depends on what kind of photography you're aiming to do. I don't really know of any sites. I learned by doing, but what I've picked up on seems to work.

The main things you need to know how to work are the Aperture and the Shutter Speed when you're using an SLR. General rules are the lower the aperture (f.stop) the more bright and vivid your pictures, the faster your shutter speed the crisper your pictures will be.

(http://img69.imageshack.us/img69/5413/sonyu.png)

A: The Wheel of Fortuuuunnneeee! I figured the best way to work out how to use my camera was to avoid all the pretty picture options and go straight for the letters (mainly M, because you control everything then).

B: This camera isn't set to Live View (which gives the preview on the screen of what you're shooting at). But it means you can see the screen information easier! The 1/250 is the shutterspeed. 1/125 or 1/250 are pretty okay general purpose shutterspeeds. 1/400 is what I use when taking BMX or skateboard photos, as it catches stuff in motion pretty crisply but still lets light and colour into the shot. For night photography I use a tripod an a shutterspeed of 1/4 or go all the way into the seconds range. The "F5.6" is the aperture. I still don't have a clue how aperture works but I tend to always use the lowest aperture possible as it lets colour in. If in doubt about it, use the "S" setting, as it has an automatic aperture control (but I don't think it's that great).

C: This wheel controls the shutter speed. Move it to the left to lower it, to the right to make it bigger.

D: Hold this button in whilst using C changes the aperture!


And, well, that's all I've really learnt.

The wikipedia pages seem to have decent information on shutterspeed (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shutter_speed).

But yeah, I don't know a thing about ISO or lenses. That's about all I've learnt in 6 months of using the Sony Alpha. Hope it kinda helped in some way.

Man it snows in Turkey? I always thought it was a relatively warm country for some reason.

Also thanks Jens, I ended up trying out the Photoshop Camera RAW plugin thing, and browsing through adboe bridge. Seems pretty straightforward, and the colour depth is noticeably better with RAW files.

ya im in the army but these were all taken many years ago and trust me im not the only one in the army that smoked pot before they joined. I posted them here cuz its not just pictures of weed. They are very done very close up to show texture. I always thought they had some artistic value as still life or whatever. I'm not posting pics of me getting high while sitting around doing nothing. I wish i knew how to do hyperlinks better but honestly i don't and so just attaching a picture to the thread is easiest. I tried to make them smaller with limited success.

This is a kid from my highschool called Ed. That building in the back is an elementary school.  Surprisingly we didn't get into trouble for this.

Next two are of a beautiful girl I used to photograph called Alex.  I wish I still knew her but she went to Greece, came back, and we kind of lost touch.  Total shame. They're similar images...but still, she's amazing.

It is, in fact, a radio.  A dirty, dirty radio.  It was also an intercom.  There were..4 of them in the house I believe, 2 on each floor.  My landlady was a heroin addict and that whole house was disgusting.  I'll throw up some more pictures with some descriptions of how disgusting the place I used to live was. I was ridiculously happy when I got the heck out of there.

Are you a pro photographer or do you just have an obscene amount of money? That thing costs six grand!

It cost that much new in 2004, but now you can find them as low as $700-$800. Most go for around $1000.

I have a photo a day (ish) blog that anyone is welcome to check out. Criticism is helpful so I can learn what I may be doing wrong or right.  Thanks.

I only just started working, and only 10 hours a week for near minimum wage. The silver camera was only $200 and I got that a few years ago. The 1D I traded my 50D for, which was a christmas gift. The film camera was only $60. And I have cheap lenses. I wish I could afford the good expensive stuff, but what I have gets the job done most of the time.

There were about 10 people behind me when that happened. I didn't take my face away from the camera during that so I wouldn't get it in my eyes. When I turned around, everyone was gone :D You can see the dust on my lens. Don't think I got any in it though, no grinding feeling when zooming in/out, and it looks fairly clean.

Nice. I wish I found the MkIIn, but oh well. It's such an awesome camera. And I never get tired of hearing that 8.5FPS burst :D

Also, had a storm roll through the other night...

It's actually the f/2.8 IS. The f/2.8 has the petal hood, and the f/4 has the round hood.

Nice shot btw :D

The F/2.8? :-o :-o :-o   The IS original or the IS II Series? Dang. Those REALLY cost money. We sell them even used  for nearly 2 grands. Btw: Both f2.8 and f4 can come with either full or petal hood, don't know if those come directly with them in the US, but here in DE they both are sold without any. Can buy them extra. Makes Canon mo' money.

It's the MkI. I found it for only $1200. I haven't seen it for under $1400 used, so I had to go for this. Came with everything too, and even a filter.

Also, I've never seen a petal hood on an f/4 before. The hood for the f/2.8 won't fit on the f/4 since the f/2.8 diameter is 77mm and the f/4 is 67mm.

Yeah. Petal Lenshood for the f4 with 67mm. Like this:

Huh. Never saw an f/4 with that before. Neat.

Here's a shot I took today that I like

AWESOME.

A picture with 75% of it showing reflecting surfaces AND its sharp as a knife. The region of focus ending exactly on the beginning of the roof... did you do it by hand or via tripod?

Btw: Like the Lolcat-grammar on the license number plate.

Thanks :D I shot it by hand. I was just walking around snapping shots and I really like how this one turned out. The 70-200 is an amazing lens.

Also, here's a full size version if you want it: http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2010/239/e/b/corvette_by_guitarfreak2-d2xfa24.jpg

Thanks Guitarfreak.

The big ol' original version showed me that it must have been very hot on this day. Because there's a lot of chromatic noise in it. Happens with my pictures too, the moment when the camera body gets warmer than 20 C.

I have made some pictures recently, on the very same day with the same cam to test it. Morning, Midday, Afternoon, Evening. Camera on a tripod, not moving. Same "Poster" on the wall. Difference was only the temperature.

And whenever the camera (due to the room temperature, i live in an appartment directly under the roof) got warmer... the color noise level raised kinda exponentially... (which is not a secret, hey, that is just dull physics on the sensor).

It wasn't really too hot. The noise is from shooting ISO400, and pushing the exposure a stop or so in lightroom, and no noise reduction.

Anyway, here's one of my cat

And here, something that grew nearly unnoticed on my kitchen window board. I mean, i was just curious if pepper seeds would grow after they were left from my pizza meal. And yes. The seeds made it. Baking on a pizza did not kill them. I noticed that something grew. But between my other plants, this little thing really had hidden its fruit. Today, while i was cleaning the plants, i noticed that there is something in my window jungle. And it inspired me to do a colour splash photo. And yes, that is the original red. That pepper glows, i swear.

So, I stumbled upon a lovely underground antique/flea market in the Lanes in Brighton and they have a few still-working film cameras.

Two caught my eye. One is the Exa 500 (http://www.camerapedia.org/wiki/Exa_500), the other is the Retina Reflex, Type 025 (http://www.camerapedia.org/wiki/Retina_Reflex).

I'll be going back in a few days to buy one, but I'm unsure which. Any suggestions?
Title: Re: yay, photography! (thumbnails or links only, pls.)
Post by: pwhodges on 27 Dec 2010, 00:33
Of those, the Exa - no question.
Title: Re: yay, photography! (thumbnails or links only, pls.)
Post by: Thomas Edison on 27 Dec 2010, 06:09
The other ones there (most if not all of them were hovering around the 25 mark) were the Baldina (Rigid) (http://www.camerapedia.org/wiki/Baldina#Baldina_.2F_Super_Baldina_.28rigid.29) and a Kodak Retinette IIa (http://www.camerapedia.org/wiki/Kodak_Retinette) but it was the Exa 500 and Retina Reflex that I was mainly eyeing up.

I'll go back on Thursday and, hoping they're still there, make a purchase of the Exa 500.

Hey, I've been there!  I spend a week in KC every summer (grading AP Calc exams).  I've been on the bridge you can see in the background.  There's a kick-ass BBQ place on the left side, I think. 

Actually, there's a kick-ass barbecue place every three blocks or so in KC...

I always try to get them to let me take the train, but they insist that we fly out.   :-(
Title: Re: yay, photography! (thumbnails or links only, pls.)
Post by: Buttfranklin on 10 Apr 2011, 08:37
Yeah, I stand by the fact that Kansas City has at least the best BBQ in the Midwest, if not the world.  Gate's is my favorite, but Arthur Bryant's is more popular for a reason that's beyond me.

As for the train, it should be cheaper than flying or driving if yr alone.  When you have 3+ people it becomes more expensive to take the train, since the gas cost doesn't outweigh the ticket cost anymore.  It's about $40 one way to St. Louis from Kansas City including luggage IIRC for one person.
Title: Re: yay, photography! (thumbnails or links only, pls.)
Post by: Carl-E on 11 Apr 2011, 09:43
Gates is  truly excellent!  I've had Jack Stacks, too, but it's pretty pricey.  Arthur Bryant got national name recognition at one point, but you're right - it's nowhere near as good as Gates.  But the best I had there was in a little bar downtown that I'll be damned if I can find again...

The company I do this contract work for won't pay for the train, only a plane.  Which is asinine, a round trip from central PA is about $320, much cheaper than plane fare.  It takes longer (there's a 12 hour layover in downtown Chicago), but the airlines are just as bad nowadays with the missed connections and insane routing - last year, I flew from central PA to Philly, to Denver (!!) then to KC. 

Where the fuck's the sense in that?

Here's one

There are two of my favourite photographs that I've taken. I do a lot of flower macro stuff, when I have time.

So I am in Nebraska trying to land a job.   Car broke down, stranding me.   No way to get to my interview 15 miles outside of town... and it's too cold to walk.

Out of money, out of cab fare...    Only one option left.   

Open the portal.

Spotted this while waiting for the tow truck this morning.      8-)

Very nice, but what was wrong with the thread in chatter?
Title: Re: yay, photography! (thumbnails or links only, pls.)
Post by: Welu on 09 Aug 2016, 19:28
I've always thought this thread was for the more arty photos because it's in this subforum. A place to share something you made and to get critical feedback, possibly if wanted.
The Chatter thread is more for interesting things to share, like your new car or cool place you were at, but aren't necessarily taken to be pretty or studied.

Post by: Method of Madness on 09 Aug 2016, 19:46
...well, shit, I've been posting all my photos there.

Post by: Metope on 10 Aug 2016, 01:25
Yeah, back in the day the Chatter photo thread was only for faces/people, while this one's for more arty photography. Eventually the Chatter thread turned into a catch-all while this one died.

I'm all for bringing a more arty photo thread back though, really liking those pics, oscillik! You definitely have an eye for light and composition!
