    035 Misc Photography Crew

    And for my 10'000 post..... This thread is to share anything photography related. Share your work, discuss equipment and ask questions.



    The main misc section is now on their 4th installment of the Misc Photo Crew. There is some amazing work to see and loads of great information. For those interested, you can check out the newest thread below.

    https://igoodies.000webhostapp.com/?viagra=showth...hp?t=161614993


















    To start things off, here are a few shots from the last few weeks. I've really come to enjoy birding.



    White Eagle Juvenile.









    Photography 101


    The first, and most important aspect of photography is understanding exposure and the exposure triangle. Exposure is the amount of light your subject is exposed to. Underexposed images will appear dark, while overexposed photos will look washed out, both of which result in a loss of detail.




    APERTURE.
    The aperture is the first point on our triangle. The aperture is the opening in the lens that allows light to hit the sensor (and is usually listed as F stops i.e F 3.5-5.6. The aperture serves two purposes.

    . The larger the aperture, the more light will hit the sensor. Large apertures are measured like gauges of wire, the smaller the number, the larger the hole. F3.5 is a larger aperture than F22.

    . The aperture will also determine the “depth of field”. This will determine how much of your photo is “in focus”. Large apertures (i.e. F 1.4 or 2.8) will cause only a very narrow amount of your photo to be in focus. (such as a portrait photo). Small F stops (i.e F9 or 11) will increase how much of your subject is in focus (such as in landscape).

    What aperture to use?



    Shooting advice for depth of field




    SHUTTER SPEED.
    The shutter speed is the second point on our exposure triangle. This is essentially how quickly the shutter opens and closes. The shutter speed needed will vary depending on the purpose.

    . Fast shutter speeds will freeze action, but fast shutter speeds also limit the amount of light that hits the sensor.

    . Slow shutter speeds allow a lot of light to hit the sensor, but if the camera shakes (either handheld or tripod) or if the subject moves, it can cause blur. (which may be the desired effect)

    How slow can you shoot hand held?



    How fast do you need to shoot?





    ISO
    The last point on our triangle is ISO. In film photography, it was how sensitive the film itself was to light. In digital photography it is how sensitive the sensor is to light. Higher ISO values will increase the light sensitivity, but will also generate noise or grain to the photo, which will result in a loss of detail.






    Understanding focal length

    Poundxpound, those are stellar macro shots. What sort of set up are you using for those? I'm looking to get a 50mm macro myself.

    I wouldn't post anyone else's photos

    The eaglet is the same one from earlier this year, he just grew up a bit. The egret and heron are from a local pond I visit often. I have another local spot I go for Great Blues and Osprey.

    ACC, I have a camera that was given to me as a gift for Christmas some years ago and I have never ever used it. In fact I rather use my phone as the damn thing just seems complicated but I would like to use it for my bodybuilding pics. maybe I can PM you and you can help me with it?

    here is a pic I just took, is this any good? Some signs you can't see in the pic It says Canon EOS Rebel XS.

    On the list for Bannukah

    It's understandable that you haven't used it, that long lens makes taking selfies very difficult!

    You should definitely visit the link in the OP. Some extraordinary talent over there.

    here is a pic I just took, is this any good? Some signs you can't see in the pic It says Canon EOS Rebel XS.
    You can PM me with any questions. The model camera is an older one with 10.1 megapixels and a basic kit lens. It won't be able to produce large photos for print, but it is much better then a lot of phones, and if you only plan to use it to upload images to the web, then that camera is more than enough.

    A lot of your self photos are either blurry or over exposed which hides detail/definition. Using the EOS will solve a lot of those issues. First thing I would do is dust it off and clean the lens with a lens cloth. Then familiarize yourself with the exposure triangle. They are the tree settings that will determine getting the correct amount of light.

    Here is a quick and basic article to help you understand shutter speed, aperture and ISO.

    You can either PM me questions or put them in this thread. It may helps others. The quickest way to learn is to start taking photos. Once you familiarize yourself with the exposure triangle, I can give you some basic setting to put your camera on, and how to understand the light meter on the camera.

    I shoot on vacations, and mostly spontaneously. I dont go out purposefully to shoot. If I do go out for that purpose I have been using the Sony DSC-QX10- think of Go Pro with a better lens, that i picked up last year. Just a point-and-shoot kinda guy.

    But with my iphone at hand its easy to shoot any time....when I see a rainbow, waves, clouds, sunsets and sunrise etc. I think that's the part of photography I enjoy, capturing that moment.... LOL

    This is the QX10


    Basically a camera without a viewfinder

    We all do it for different reasons. It's like a toy to me, I like the neat fancy gear, and I like the challenge of difficult to capture photos. I also want to create work I can put into large print. I was a bit of an artist growing up and fell away when I joined the service. It's become a creative outlet for me.

    Long time no see monkeyman. Hope all has been going well.

    I have two lenses I want to get. Right now, I have a gap in focal lengths. I have nothing between 16 to 70mm. I was looking at the Sigma 50 macro. Reviews say it's a great portrait lens and is a true 1:1 macro. It would cover the gap in focal ranges, and get me started in macro photography.

    Then my next purchase was going to either be the Sigma 105 or 150 macro. I've had great luck with Sigma Lenses, so have decided to invest in more of their gear.

    I also have an older Nikon D50 with several lenses, but the screen on back is only about an 1-1/2" square, which is too small for my old eyes. The Canon is easier to use and the quality is similar. Here are a few I took with the Nikon.

    In.

    As you are aware Jeff. I have a Nikon D5200 with a standard 18-55mm VR lens.

    I took a few pictures whilst away. The good lady has the camera with her and as soon as she returns. I will get my teeth into the depths of detail.

    Initially it was bought for pics of my son. But no doubt I will get some great City shots soon.

    Here is about the best I can muster by playing around with the settings.

    You have a good eye for composition, the photos are exposed well.... and you have great subjects! If you need help with the settings, you can list what the setting where in the photos you've taken.

    Chaz, last and first time I went to Vegas, no camera. I hope to get back out there in the next year or two.
















    Last night, I decided to hike a small local mountain to do some sky photography and got this shot.
