What was your latest photo?

  • @stenchlord: Yeah the zoo was pretty quiet, I took pictures of them for about an hour, Tried a few different locations, and Did some shooting with the 2x teleconverter on the 100-400 as well. I took about 5000 exposures while at the zoo. Which is about average for me when I got taking wild life pictures.

  • I'm a lot more sparse with my shots, a day at the zoo will usually leave me with 600-1000 photos (depending on if I go to the bird show).

  • Raining heaps here atm, here's another old photo.

  • Nothing special, just trying to get the hang of the camera. I think it's more that it's a good camera than a good photographer at this point.

  • You might want to consider getting a circular polarizer for Sebring. It will cut down on the glare from the tarmac, paint, and glass.

    Please forgive the terrible photo – I snapped this in 2005 using a power-and-shoot camera.

  • @mclaren777: Yeah, once I started going through them I noticed that I really should have grabbed a couple filters. A polarizer would have probably taken a few shots from "okay" to "good," even with some of the other photos I've taken lately. I'm heading up to an auto show at the end of the month too, so it should help with the glare there as well (I think?).

  • @njp1589: I'm no expert at editing but you should be able to tweak it a bit in Lightroom.

    I just gave it a quick run through and this is how it turned out.

  • @stenchlord: I really gotta brush up on PS and Lightroom. It's been a while since I played around with them, but I think it'll come back.

    In the meantime, here's one from the zoo. Focus isn't perfect, and you get a bit of the mesh in the front, but I thought it looked okay. (No Meta-Info on this one right now...)

  • taken with my old cannon , ran through photoshop to control the nine million lens flares bouncing off the snow

  • this was actually taken with my cell phone camera, no idea of the lens, but its a casio commando.

    oh cow, im assuming you have some software to tell you whats what in my amateur and then some pic. cool to know that info, thanks!

  • @Remington: I use the FxIF Firefox plugin.

  • Grabbed a polarizer and hit the car show with my 50mm this weekend. Images were hit and miss. This one was okay.

  • Did you experiment with the polarizer using live view?

    I find it's a good way to see how the filtering works.

  • @mclaren777: I mainly played with it through the viewfinder, so I did notice the differences a lot. Some of them I was able to get a really good effect, but on others it was harder to find a balance. To be honest I really struggled with getting glare in some areas, but not in others. From a front-side view, I could typically cut the glare on the side panels or the hood, but never both. Might be just a cheap polarizer. I thought this one went a little better;

  • 1/80, f/3.2, ISO 640, 50mm w/ macro adapter.

  • i took a few photos at my nieces 2nd bday to play around with manual focus and manual controls. Not a huge fan of the crop IMO

    Iso 400, 1/100 sec, ~f/4

  • When I shoot wedding details with a macro lens, it's not uncommon to be in the f/8 to f/16 range. Don't be afraid to stop down, though it does require a lot of additional light if you're indoors. A flash or a video light can be really helpful in such situations.

  • 2007 isn't exactly what I would call "latest".

  • lol I don't have a camera at the moment.

    You can always post one.

  • When do you expect to have the E-M1?

    Settings:

    • Camera: Canon 6D
    • Lens: 85mm f/1.8 USM
    • Focal Length: 85mm
    • Aperture: f/2.8
    • Shutter: 1/2000
    • ISO: 800
  • @mclaren777:

    Haha that's a happy puppy :D

    Jealous of that FF sensor that you can just jump up to ISO 800 without needing to worry. My 50D and EOS M at ISO 800 gave a lot of noise, didn't make the image look outright bad but definitely wouldn't have looked as bokehlicious as that.

    As for the E-M1, I'm hoping by the end of this week, maybe middle of next. Looking to pick it up with the 12-40mm f/2.8 and will see about picking up the 45mm f/1.8 as well and an extra battery or two since batteries are rated for around ~400 shots each...
