How to Photograph your Rig - Page 61

post #601 of 976
I shot these on a Canon 1100D and edited in Picasa playing with colour correction and applying filters. The Lomo-ish filter is my current favorite smile.gif

I've got a couple cameras smile.gif

I apologise - If you use Aperture Priority - yes, changing the aperture to a smaller one (greater number) will decrease the shutter speed opening up the time to allow for the blur (too long using Manual makes me think in Manual)... however it is the shutter speed that determines the blur. Still if you aren't comfortable using Manual then yes that will do it. Be wary though that the smaller your aperture the greater your depth of field. in this instance though that might not be a problem but for reference it's good to know.

And you have more than a couple of the cameras - there is some really nice kit there. I would love to see more of your work. It's a more expensive hobby than computers isn't it smile.gif

There is some really promising work here, If I'm going to be honest the colour sheme is not to my liking so it's unfairly making me dislike the photographs and that's not fair on you. I like your angles of approach but critically I'd think about your frame and whats in it (telephone). your close ups are framed fine, really good in fact and that you are experimenting with filters is good. I'd say not always necessery but if you don't try these things you wont grow. Your first shot after the spoiler is too red for me, it washes out the detail but the frame is great and the vignetting is really nice. The tubing shot is (3rd one down) is really appealing to me, I absolutely love this shot, the only criticism is that it's not sharp enough. there's some camera shake on there. If you are up for it, pop it into manual, keep the same zoom setting and set your aperture to the same as it was then put your shutter speed to at least 1/125 and see how that works out. you should be able to copy the filters from the edit you already have in picassa to save you time. this should make it perfect.

I'm sorry if I sound over harsh, I don't want to be anything but constructive and supportive on here. I hope you aren't discouraged - you have a great eye and taste is relative so ignore me on the colour scheme and keep shooting! thumb.gif

Please don't apologise your feedback is extremely helpful and I'm greatly appreciative of the time you've taken to help me out +1 rep thumb.gif

I have no real idea what I'm doing on a technical front, from my limited experience I can say that I definitely prefer taking close ups. Points of interest just seem easier to pick out when zoomed in rather than out.

I'll have a play tomorrow using your suggestions

Thanks again, you've motivated me to keep trying (and learn how to use Picasa properly) smile.gif

Omg woops. I posted the wrong photo. They look identical. I'll post the one with my galaxy nexus in a bit.


Alright here's the one from my Nexus. Still pretty good for a phone camera.

Not bad, but not a patch close up! the angle looses out too, I'd stick to using your other camera. wink.gif
