I like this, it's a good frame - using the M/B to light your kit is also a nice touch. It does strain the eye to look at the details but it has a good sense of sharpness. I like that everything is in focus but then that draws my attention to the door in the background... (you'd hate working with me) - I'd personally like this to be a plain white but that really is me nit-picking. - I love the light bouncing off the graphics card and fan. personally i'd want a bit more exposure but again not essential. thumb.gif

Don't get me wrong it's good but it could be sharper for my liking. thumb.gif

It was taken with my dads finepix on a tripod. I don't think I can set a timer.
I should be getting a new camera soon so might get some nicer pics, but I'm glad you like them.

I'm sure it's already been said here but shooting with a small aperture on a timer is great way to get some motion blur on the fans and you can also use a led "torch" aka flashlight to fill in some of the under exposed areas...
I'll have some shots from my build in the next few days using this technique
I'll be using a flash behind the case as well to give it a more dramatic look:thumb:

This is taken from my Galaxy Nexus, which has a 5mp camera. Not the best photo, but this proves that you don't need a 300 dollar camera to take a decent photo.

looking forward to this. thumb.gif - N.B. a small aperture effects the amount of light and depth of field, it's the shutter speed that will determine the motion blur on the fans.

that is a nice tidy set up.... Love the sharpness on the GFX card. would like to see the depth of field extend a bit further up and below but it's not essential. - really nice frame, however bring the case away from the wall to blur the wall detail. I like the directed light. Very fashionable - magazine worthy! - also nice blur on the fans. thumb.gif

haha he's saying it wasn't taken with his Nexus - still there are some camera phones that under the right conditions can produce nice shots. kudos if it was taken with a Nexus, tut tut if fibbing smile.gif

EDIT: on further inspection, it's not an SLR job and looks handheld but either phone or Powershot could have been guilty of those quality flaws when close up. Still my original opinion of the image stands regardless of my picky perfectionism - it's a good shot.

Shooting at a smaller aperture will usually give the longer shutter speeds you need for some motion blur...

While I'm very new to computers, photography has been a "hobby" of mine for awhile..
I've got a couple cameras smile.gif
