i recently found my dads old pentax super ME

http://l.yimg.com/g/images/spaceball.gif

i've been looking at lenses on ebay. im looking for either a fisheye or macro lens right now
right now i have a 1:2 50mm lens on it. should i spring for a new lens of ebay or just play around with what i have for a while till i know what i want

The latter, a fisheye will halt any practise you can get with photography as they are useless for anything serious. Fisheyes are great fun but they are a novelty. Once the novelty wears off they find themselves in your bag only to come out for parties and skating and things like that. If you really feel the need for a new lens, try looking for a 28mm or 35mm wide angle, just so you have something to swap your 50 with. But the 50 f2 lens is great, if you can master that, then you can use any lens.

So yeah, keep your lens and practise with that for a while. Once you find you are getting really great shots with it, then look for a cheap 28mm or similar.

Shifted, if your into architecture photography, then persue that. instead of shooting carparks, shoot interesting buildings and houses. remember to shoot as level as you can, and try to avoid shooting at the widest angle, unless you are willing to correct the distortioin that occurs on photoshop.

if you are shooting in the daytime, take a tripod, take three different exposures of the same composition, then using layers in photoshop, paint out the parts that are over and under exposed. It's hard to explain, but look it up. Its how pro architecture photographers do it. I know cos I worked with one recently for a few months.

No, not HDR. When a shot is taken at perfect exposure next to a window, chances are the room is going to be perfect exposed with the window washed out white, or the window with be perfect exposed with the room too dark. This is why you take different exposures of the same shot, so that you can use the image with the perfectly exposed room, and then use the image with the perfectly exposed window and simply layer it in, so that everything is in perfect exposure and nothing is washed out or too dark.

Get me?

http://img185.imageshack.us/img185/9309/dsc9547.jpgHere the room is bright enough for lots of details, but outside the french doors is completely washed out, useless for a decent picture.
http://img29.imageshack.us/img29/5143/dsc9548.jpgHere the room is a natural sort of brightness, however the outside is still too washed out.
http://img40.imageshack.us/img40/4733/dsc9549.jpgThis shot renders the room too dark, and useless. The outside however is perfectly exposed, so thats all we'll use from this image.

Finally, after masking them and painting out the areas of each image I don't want, I'm left with this:

It can also be done by taking one shot in RAW, then adjusting the exposure on photoshop and saving 3 seperate files, this is how HDR is done with people and moving objects where taking three physical shots isn't possible.

first one would look better if it was placed off centre, splits the image too much.

second needs a slight levelling out and would look good

third is a little overexposed in places

fourth just looks fucking sick

and

fifth might look a bit better if the tones were cooled down a bit in lightroom or whatever, looks a bit orange


overall, good shit mate.

and the thing about getting it level, if it helps, you seen these before?

just a little spirit level that fits onto the hotshoe, can get them dirt cheap on ebay

If your getting into architecture, the best peice of advice I can give you is get photoshop, and practice using the warp tool. Using a level will help you, but when your trying to get a whole building into frame, its not always possible to keep level. Can't always do it in camera, but its not that hard to keep your vertical lines straight in post.

By warp tool, do you mean lens correction filter, cos that is what is used to correct parralell lines and avoid the distortion caused by looking up at buildings with wide angle lenses etc. And ares is also right, forget those silly leveling tools u stick in the hot shoe, leveling your photos does not really matter when the shot has been taken, try to be as stright as you can, but its no big deal correcting it later in photoshop or lightroom.

Shifted the one of the walkway tunnel is your strongest photo there, its mean.

After shooting some architecture with my crappy tripod you start to realise why pro's spend thousands on manfrotos. if your serious then invest in something real good, saves just having to buy it later.

The lens correction tool can be used to avoid this, which happens when shooting architecture from other than level angles and wide angle lenses

http://www.adobe.com/designcenter/photoshop/articles/phscs2mrcorrect/phscs2mrcorrect_1.jpg

pro architecture photographers use large format cameras to avoid this, which do this inside the camera.

i'm not an expert at all but as far as i know you have to either take the photo from a point where there's no lights like that in the way or use a lens shade and position it properly

theres probably a better way to work around it that i don't know about but thats what i do

i'm not an expert at all but as far as i know you have to either take the photo from a point where there's no lights like that in the way or use a lens shade and position it properly

theres probably a better way to work around it that i don't know about but thats what i do


....or you could take the photos during the day :D


Other than simply avoiding shooting diredctly at harsh light, which does cause ghosting, you could possibly try a polarizing filter, This has two applications in photography: it reduces reflections from non-metallic surfaces, and can darken the sky. Not sure if it could work but it might. Just try to avoid shooting upwards into the light, or using a shorter exposure time.

shifted: you're more likely to get better results on film, because of digital noise. Another thing is that you want to get away from the city lights and shoot on a clear dry night. The farter away from light pollution you are, the better your pictures will look.

Don't get that. Terrible little sensors and inability to change lenses. Get a Nikon D60 or D3000 or a Canon 1000D or whatever they are called in the states, rebel or whatever the fuck. Just a cheap DSLR.



And sir.one, my Nikon D300 was used with a Tokina 50-135mm F/2.8 and a remote triggered SB-600 flash on a stand. The camera I'm holding in the shot is a D90 that belongs to my friend who was the photographer for the shoot, I was assistant. If you're wondering why the image seems so crisp, Nikon and Canon and most japanese digital cameras have anti aliasing filters on their sensors which slightly blur the photos taken with them. This does not happen with digital cameras such as the new Leica M9. I hate this blurring of the images, so in the custom settings of my camera I have bumped up the sharpness to just under its maximum level which gives my images a much sharper look. Some people hate it, I don't.

I mean if you are shooting an exposure of like 10-20sec or more, if you run around inside the frame, so long as you don't stand still, you won't be seen in th finished images. so you can run up to a subject in your photos, flash them and run away and you won't show up in the images.

before they begin, get them to pose however they wanna pose, then flash them at the beggining of the exposure, just use your pop up flash if you don't own one. Anything that gets flashed gets imprinted into the image, then they can move around the tag the shit out of shit.

Shifted: what perv said, but also if you're into long exposures and don't have an external flash, borrow someone else's camera and just use the flash on that. It helps if it's an slr (film or digi, doesn't matter) because they register the click faster. In the past I've used my dslr on a tripod, and my film slr as the flash, triggered by an infared remote that I got for $10 off ebay.

09-17-2009, 10:01 PM
Live view should not be important whether to buy a camera or not. Live view is useless sales ploy. So is HD video. Forget all that shit. What you need to think about is lens compatibility, if you intend to buy more lenses at a later stage, and you own a d3000 or or d60 or d40, you are limited to AF-S lenses, eg, 50mm f/1.8 AF-S, or else you will be stuck without autofocus. AF-S basically means, the motor that powers the autofocus is built into the lens, rather than in the camera itself as with cameras such as the D90 D300 and more expensive cameras. So basically if you own a d40 or d3000 or d5000 you are stuck with having to buy the newer AF-S lenses if you want auto focus. This can cost a lot more in the long run. If you intend to buy lots of lenses that are not AF-S and cannot autofocus without a camera with an autofocus motor inside it as I did, you need a d80, d90, d300 and up. If you have a camera like this, you can use any lens since the 1950's on it.

These are things that you should be considering, not live view.


You MUST read this website if you are buying a camera and you don't know anything.

If you are buying canon, ignore everything I just said. The EOS system is completely compatible with everything basically, except with full frame and cropped sensors etc.

Canon don't make a fisheye for their small format cameras and they are expensive.

Nikon make the 10.5mm DX fisheye, so if a fisheye lens is something oyu have your heart set on, get a nikon D90.

Nice but horrendously scanned. Did you scan the negative or the print? Scan the negative, that way you can edit everything in lightroom and the quality will be much higher.

09-20-2009, 02:09 AM
hey perverto are used cameras any cheaper than new ones?

Yes, obviously. If you are buying a DSLR second hand, be sure to ask what the shutter actuation count is. This means how many photos have been taken with the camera in total, because there IS a limit and cameras DO have limits. The cheaper the camera, the less amount of shutter actuations can occur, for example on a d60 the limit is 50,000 or something, and on my D300 it is 300,000 or something like that, be sure to ask this.

first try and shooting sports. Any tips? It's seems blurry and shit. ISO was at 3200 and i think shutter speed was at 250 and f/stop was at 5.0/5.6. Its hard to shoot with a higher shutter speed since it was a night game and there wasnt much light.

PERVERTO
09-20-2009, 03:29 AM
Sports photography is where pro zoom lenses come in. For night sports, you need a zoom lens with a low F stop, such as the 70-200mm F/2.8
http://farm1.static.flickr.com/115/306310556_8b8e1b7320_b.jpg
Having a lower f stop means more light is allowed into the sensor and lower ISO's can be used, as well as faster shutter speeds, avoiding the grain and blur caused by higher ISO's. These lenses also have lighting fast auto focus, when used with a camera with an effective auto focus system like the Nikon D3, the subject can be focussed and tracked pretty easily.

If you want to freeze movement, without blurring etc, you must use higher shutter speeds of atleast 500th or faster, if you can't afford a f/2.8 zoom, then you are going to have to deal with the grain of higher ISO's to balance the higher shutter speed in low light.

Hope this helps, it's kinda complex and hard to explain.

yea, i figured i needed a lens with lower f stop. I was using a 70-300 f/4-5.6 lens, so it didnt really allow much light in. Oh well, it wasnt supposed to be professional, it was jus for fun.

You mean the one with the lights? I know it's not great i really didn't know what the fuck i was doing but i somehow got the camera to get a long exposure. I had the settings on A-DEP with the ISO at 400 i might have had the aperature at -1 but im not sure. I might have had the white balance on auto but i'm not sure. THe reason that the pic is so bright is because that street is very bright. There's store all around it and lights everywhere.

depends on what your after, for the best picture quality, shoot at the lowest ISO you can, 100 or similar, and f stop depends on what your after also, for long light stars and shit like that use a small fstop but for sharper images with more in focus use higher f stops like 5.6 or 11.

I have mixed feelings about this. Yes, you can make an uninteresting shot look better in photoshop, but you can't make an uninteresting shot interesting. Not knocking anyone, just saying.

Oh absolutely, It's cheating, you can't polish a turd, but just saying a mildly interesting photograph can be made visually appealing to an idiot just by doing luggage thigns like adding vignettes and upping contrasts.

No doubt a shit photo is a shit photo, but aesthetics can be improved if composition and interest cannot.

Correct. Not so bad if done subtly though, eg:

amateur shit i know, but i dk. i've always wanted to get into photography but have never really had the money to drop on a camera i'd want to take everywhere. i can always see great shots, but never have anything to shoot with.

Keep doing what your doing, a good camera don't mean good photos. If you feel like your ready to drop the cash then do it but don't bother if you don't want to, theres a sick website full of dope photos taken on an iphone. it doesn't really matter

just started messing with photomatrix within the last week
getting the whole tonal control thing down takes a while to get use too
once i merge the three images i just take it over to ps and bumb the levels and tweak the color balance. thats pretty much it.
i just found a setting on my camera that takes all three exposures at the same time
but i do prefer manually doing it, but it comes in handy when i dont have a tripod

You said you extracted all the files from that first link right? The setup file should be called setup.exe or something like that, but if thats not working its ok. If you can find the keygen and that works, just goto adobes website and download a trial of lightroom. Install that, then use the keygen to break the trial.

When it comes to downloading adobe software, I've found its always the best idea to download the trials directly from their website. Most, if not all of the trial versions can be cracked and at least you know you aren't getting any trojans coming from adobe. Torrent sites on the other hand, you don't know what your getting.

theres no setup, I use winRAR to extract them. Do i have to sign up to the site to download something? n whats keygen?

damnit, that photo book is fucking sexy

and for the picture of the shandelear...not sure how you spell that...its off centered and it bugs me

just being honest

...kinda boring too, nothing really pops

..bland and boring

it would be more interesting in sepia or black and white

This doesn't look very good because I don't have a film scanner, so I just taped the neg to my monitor, set it to an all white background, and then took a picture of it with my digi. You can see the pixels of my monitor in the upper left corner.

Other than that, this is delta 3200 pushed to 6400 in craptastic sprint developer. 13min diluted 1:4.

Film scanner is coming soon. hopefully.
