most of us carry digital cameras these days and we're often out and able to take ohotos other's don't.

I thought I'd start a thread where you can show off some of those better photos you have taken. Perhaps we can all learn a bit more about photography.

They don't have to be fishing related. In fact we've all seen landscapes, sunsets and fish. So maybe portraits or adstracts. vut if you do have a good sunset or landscape, please feel free to add.

400d and a 50mm lens, no flash, dark bar, film speed set to 1600 iso, 3.5 aperture, exposure compensation (under exposed) to speed up shutter and then image digitally 'pushed' using photoshop levels control.

Apples them pics are really good mate, very pro looking!

Didnt even know you could get 50 mins out of a shutter? not sure the 400D will do that? was reading though you can get the Ghost Town affect by leaving the shutter open for so long that nothing other than stationary objects are in the pic long enough to get exposed??

You'll need a remote that you can lock (model number RS 60E3), set the camera to bulb mode, press the shutter then lock the shutter. Walk away for X-time then return and unlock the shutter

You can expose for as long as the battery lasts for (2 hours generally on the standard bettery and 4 hours if you have the batter grip and decent batteries in)

In black and white the path starting bottom right draws the eye straight down to the stark contrast of the steps. leading the eye upto the castle then on to the sea scape....where as in the colour version my eye is drawn down the path to the left leading me into a dead end
See we can be Arty on here....well at least I can spout stuff lol:lol: .

The first 3 were pre slr and taken with a fuji finepix point and shoot whilst tope fishing in clevelly, probably the best sunset I have ever seen.
The last one was taken whilst getting to grips with my slr whilst on holiday in Barcalona and was a long exposure but cant remember the ISO.

Hiya mate,

My best bit of advice is to keep taking as many piccies each time you get the camera out as possble. I learned photography with large format cameras and as well as normal ones at college and it is the best bit of advice i was given.

Even if you get all the settings right, the lighting right, the post correct, you will find that once you get to looking at your pictures you will maybe bin around three quarters of them so the more you take the more good ones you should end up with.

Read the booklet that came with your camera, if it didnt have one then you can normally download them off the net if you do a search. Then have a go at some of the things it will do. Macro for example is on most cameras nowadays. When your fishing one day just set it up and snap a few things follwoing the instructions. You will get some blurred ones and some real pukka ones too. It is mostly down to practice thats all.

Oh and a good eye, but that is learned too. Good luck with it and post your pics to show us how your getting on

Aha, right as i see it. Upload your image to somewhere on the net. Then copy the web address of that image. Next create a new post on here then type your message / caption and then type then paste your link you copied before of your image, then type and when you click post it should show your piccy.. Hopefully anyway, lol

12-01-2008, 13:24
Right, it looks like if you right click on the thumbnail of your image and then do properties, then copy the url of the thumbnail it will let you put that into a post on here. The actual image on photobucket may be too large or it may not allow you to link to that.. The image a couple above of the crayfish is of one on my photobucket, but it is only from the tumbnail, the image itself wont work..

You'll need a remote that you can lock (model number RS 60E3), set the camera to bulb mode, press the shutter then lock the shutter. Walk away for X-time then return and unlock the shutter

You can expose for as long as the battery lasts for (2 hours generally on the standard bettery and 4 hours if you have the batter grip and decent batteries in)

does that mean on first press it captures the image,then exposes it until you come back???????

can the g9 do this?lol

exkingsmeadchef
13-01-2008, 20:01

It opens the shutter to expose the film and then it remains open till you close it....or the battery runs down and it shuts off by itself.
At the momment we have an art instalation where I work that constits of 34 pin hole cameras that are taking a delayed photos over a 3 month period.
The artist has used plastic film canisters and placed a section of unexposed film in each one, on one side then a tiny pin hole on the opposite side of the canister then using about three or four diffrent types of clear/couloured plastic as a lense to cover the hole he has shut out almost all the light meaning he gets a three month exposure.He has placed them in diffrent areas around the building some in high traffic zones that mean he will geta VERY blured abstarct image and others in rooms that will see almost if any movement in that time and will give a ghostly static image...or at least thats what he said....we shall see.

The dog and rabbit one was probably my favorite, gotta be chuffed getting the tern (is it a tern?) one though. I take it that was with manual focus?

Surrey Sam

Thank you Dan and Singy, it’s always a good ego boost when people enjoy your work. I have only been taking proper photos for about 8 months now, since I out grew my Fuji and upgraded to the Canon 30d really.

The scope that a full DSLR camera now gives me is amazing and it’s so economical to practice and hone your skills, unlike the people who've learnt the hard way with film. The trouble is that what I’ve saved in processing I’ve probably trebled in expenditure!!! I try to think of it as invested in equipment and I believe it’s worth it. :nuts:

I never shoot in Auto mode and always flit between shutter/ aperture priority modes and full manual mode; this is thanks to growing up with the Fuji and experimenting with that. I’ve also in the last 10 weeks or so been playing about with Raw and all the control that gives which has certainly been eye opening, it’s amazing how much you can do with post processing in these software programs like CS3 etc now. But I’m adamantthat I will not rely upon these programs as I want to learn how to take photos and not how to manipulate something beyond reality.

Dan – I may have some more of the Red Arrows, I’ll check my other computer later and see if the are worthy of putting a few more up here.

Singy, My dog and Rabbit one was great moment where I just had the camera to hand when taking her for a walk. I was a little disappointed by the colours but it was taken in my first month or so of ownership of the new camera so I was still getting my head around ISO/WB and their effects on the picture. I’m purely self taught by trial and error for which the later there has been plenty… :o

The bird picture you refer to is probably my favourite and I believe is a Black Headed Gull in its winter plumage, it was taken using the center point on AI servo auto focus mode and has been cropped to that aspect. I haven’t got as far as manual focus yet as I previously have never felt confident/found a need for it. It wasn’t until recently that I understood its use i.e. when I ran out of AF points for my composition in the frame. Now that I understand its use especially in macro work, I may start to experiment with it although I do have my eye on the 1d mkIIn and its 45 AF point system. :rolleyes:

You can add colour after the shot. What you cannot do is add a great composition and a fantastic subject matter. The shot with the rabbit is the nuts mate.

As for white balance, I take it you didn;t shoot RAW as you can adjust the WB after the shot. I always shoot RAW apart from flash photography, (I don't know enough about flash photography)because when using the flash I just stick the thing on auto and on the 400d you cannot shoot raw when it's on auto

Singy.. for night raws.. set the camera to auto.. half press and take note of the App and S/S.. then just set the camera to completely manual and dial in those settings.. flash on.. raw set.. bobs your uncles auntie.. :)

Or put it in 'P' and dial in a wide App..

Singy thank you again, I shall have to mind the door frame on the way out. The photo was taken before I even knew what RAW was, so unfortunately it’s a JPEG. I will upload it to CS3 and have a little tinker to try and give it more 'pop'. The rabbit and the dog were both motionless for a good 5secs allowing me to change focus points as I also have another version where the dog is in focus and the rabbit out of focus which is quite good. But the dog’s arse being the focal point is IMHO not as appeasing to the eye as the one shown here


Apples, those side car pictures at Brands are fantastic what body do you use? Also do you find the 400 prime a little limiting, I have the 100-400 pump and I find the zoom really handy for framing and would imagine the prime a little difficult to use but I have to say I'm yet to see a displayed 400 prime picture that does not make me go wow. Pictures even look great with the 1.4TC with no visible loss in IQ.

singy
21-01-2008, 16:08
I always tend to look for composition above a technically very good photo. The better photos for me are the ones you just grab a camera and shoot.

You obviously know what you are doing on both counts :)

Having a good subject helps, sometimes playing up to the camera is a good thing :)

20d body..


Lens..
Before I brought it I read plenty and looked at a load of different photos.. I must have taken 6 weeks.. 2 months.. my head told me not to buy the prime.. same reason as you with the framing issue.. but of the Sig 50-500.. 100-400L and prime.. side by side... the results of the birders pics swung it for me..


After owning it a couple of years the only time I find it limiting now is when I dont have enough reach.. :)
The TC is on most of the time for motorsport events.. and even then I sometimes want more.. but yeah.. very little loss in IQ with the 1.4..
Although adding the TC takes it over 5.6 and its not sposed to AF on my body Ive taped the pins.. it does hunt at times in low light but as a rule its fine....

As for framing.. nope not a problem.. rather than adjust a zoom you just move your own arrse into postion... :)


I see a lot of 100-400L's trackside.. but at most circuts most of em seem to be extended to 400 ;)

Yep there are loads, just google it and find the nearest one to you, most college's or uni's will have an evening course you can go on. But the best thing is just to get out there and try it for yourself. Thats part of the fun.

Thanks for your view on the prime Apples. I've decided that I'll keep the pump and instead save, beg, steal, borrow and pimp myself for the next year or so in order to afford the 5k+ it costs for the super telephoto 600 F/4 IS L prime lens. It also gives me the chance to weight train which should enable me to hopefully lift the thing (5.3kgs) :eek:


I'm starting to get the hang of this 100-400 now; still finding some of my images could do with being a fraction sharper when shown at 100% but the light hasn't been helping recently for higher shutter speeds as you can see from my ISO setting. You have to love the high ISO speed performance of modern digital SLR's.

100% crop from the Raw file which was then run through neat image as the only post process enhancement.

Taken at 400mm, 1/160sec, f/7.1, ISO 800.

All critique welcomed :thumbs:

:lol: Yes they certainly aren’t birds for beginners or the impatient; it took me around 4 hours just sitting still before one of the nesting pair obliged with a good enough pose that was within range so to speak. I’ve sorted an even closer ambush point now. The new spot should get me even closer without detection, that one I’ve posted was taken with a 400mm lens about 40ft away, whilst the new spot is about half of that distance.

______________________________________


Hi Stomp, I’m no expert but I’ll give you a few pointers. Your exif information on the picture tells me that the shutter speed was 2 seconds, this is a very slow shutter speed and probably what has happened there is the trees have probably moved a little in the breeze to cause the slight blur. The only way to cure this is to shorten the shutter speed to say 1 second and make the aperture wider offsetting the change in shutter speed. Your photo was taken at an aperture of F/8 so putting the camera on say F/4 or F/5.6 and the shutter speed of 1 second would hopefully give the same result but without the blur.
You can rectify some issues by using manipulation programs such as Photoshop; I’ve had a quick go on your picture and the result you can see below. Hope you don’t mind. I’ve used the unsharpen mask tool more than I’d like to in order to regain some definition in the tree line, I have also lessened the contrast a little and changed the output level at the top end of the light spectrum to make the sunset less intense as it was a little harsh on the eye. I’ve then run a noise reduction programme on the whole image which has made the water a little silkier looking.

I know that some of the above is starting to get a bit technical, so if there is anything you don’t understand or would like me to further explain then I’ll only be too happy to help. Great sunset by the way :thumbs:

Nice capture on the bird.. my attempts have been very limited.. and wholeheartedly unsuccessful :)

At 100% it looks like you have a good copy of the lens too.. and as you know.. getting closer will bring out more detail..
As for the 600.. nice if you can afford it.. just make sure you buy yourself a tripod made of scafold poles too ;)


But regarding Stomps picture..by going up to F4 - F5.6 you are narrowing the depth of field.. I cant see any advantage for 'general' landscape type shots..... ?


Stomp assuming you have a camera with some felxability.... try setting the camera to apperture priority and select an F number somewhere in the region of f22.. then change the ISO to 800... then check the shutter speed (S/S).
If the S/S is fast drop the ISO to 400 and see what happens (The higher the ISO the more noise/ grain you will have to the photo)
If the shutter speed to too slow.. take the F number to 20.. check the S/S.. and just work your way down until you get what you need..


Personally for that type of shot I wouldn't want to drop below F16.. and although I'd always try to get it right in the camera with exposure compensation... I would rather have to play around with it on the P.C and bump the brightness level than drop below that F16..

The wonder of digital is once you have the camera it costs nothing.. so dont be afraid to take it out of those auto modes and play..

this looks like a cool photo, could you explain what you mean by "13 second exposure at F22"

Basically the amount of light you allow into the lens is cut right back, which means to get the correct amount of light to expose the picture you need to open the shutter for a long time.

This means anything moving will be blurred. Hence the effect on the moving water

The 'F' number relates to the apperture of the lens. Basically there are blades inside the lens that open and close in a circular motion, allowing more or less light in. A lens may go from f2 to F22.. F2 would be wide open, allowing the most light in.
It also affect the depth of field, or what is and isn't in focus. Singys shots at the start of the thread show a shallow depth of field.. not much in focus, and would have been shot wide open.
The F22 allows far more to be in focus.

Although it was a bright sunny day, it was very dark under the trees and 13 seconds was simply the amount of time needed to allow enough light in, to get a picture without it being too dark,or too light..

With water shots and longer exposures.. the longer you leave the shutter open for the smoother the water will look..

Taken yesterday evening on the river Kennet.. F 5.6 at half second..

Easiest option is set the camera to 'portrait' mode.. it sets the aperture and shutter speed for you and should give the in focus angler and fish / out of focus background which most people like for their shots.
If you want to experiment a little.. set it to 'Tv' which means you control the aperture.. the camera sets the shutter speed..

how do you adjust the apperture? i cant see any settings for this? iso is shutter speed isnt it? he has a canon 350d so guess this will have that feature?

"how do you adjust the apperture?"

I dont have a 350.. but Id guess there is a little wheel next to the shutter button that you'd use..
Im sure someone with a 350 will be able to tell you ;)



"iso is shutter speed isnt it?"

No.
Shutter speed is the speed the shutter opens and closes...
ISO is the camera film's, or in a digi camera the sensors, sensitivity to light.
100 being the least sensitive, so needing slower shutter speeds than 200 in the same conditions.

On my 400d there is indeed a small wheel near the shutter button.
