I like the photography in this forum. It is looking very beautiful. It makes me more crazy.

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.

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.



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.

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.

Anyone have much experience working with RAW files? If so, what program do you use for the processing and if you feel like briefly sharing your workflow that'd be grand.

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.

the southwestern regions are pretty warm all year round, but i'm up north in istanbul, and it snows here for a few weeks. central and eastern anatolia have the wildest winters though.

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.

I hope this works...if it doesn't, can someone tell me what I did wrong?

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.



The next two were from a house I lived at last year.  I don't miss it at all.

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.
