Some friends and I were “back roading with cameras” last weekend. We stopped at a little creek that I like to visit. I don’t know what the water source is. Possible a spring. Probably irrigation runoff from the rice fields in the area. We stopped to photograph the trees and shadows of trees in the water downstream of the low water crossing.
We can’t see the image data unless we click on the image. Tersha had to copy the data from the image description into a second post. All she’s asking is that you put the text that you wrote with the image into the post itself.Check It Out
Thus is going to be pretty much the same comments as were made in the other post with the same image in it… with a little detail.
Antelope Canyon is one of those “iconic” images that has to be made correctly (technically speaking) otherwise it’ll be compared to the others and suffer.
It looks like this was shot wide open. Speaking of…[Read more]
She takes over the scene 🙂
The best way that I know of to confirm whether there is any information in the blacks or whites is to open the image (hopefully it’s a raw file) with no edits in either ACR or LR5. Mouse over the area of her hair and look at the % numbers for R, G, and, B. If they are very, very low or 0 (for black, very near or100…[Read more]
I’m not too bothered by the missing detail in the lamp post but her hair is missing detail, that bothers me.
I suppose that it depends on whether this is an image of a lamp post with a pretty woman in it or an image of a pretty woman with a lamp post in itCheck It Out
Take a look at the settings again. I had made a mistake in the f stop calculation. 2 stops from f2.8 is f5.6 not f11. I also gave you an f stop range to try rather than an absolute. f 5.6 is a good startCheck It Out
My last shots were taken during the Perseids. Here’s a composite of a satellite passing through the scene. It was a very odd passage. Normally they flash once. This one must be tumbling. It’s called SPOT 1
Ok… my last night photograph had these settings:
so… the difference in stops between 10s and 15 minutes is 6 stops and change
Set your time to 15m
Adjust the other two parameters to offset the 6 stop change
Start with ISO, the lower the better. Going in one stop increments:
1600-800-400-200-100 Only 4…[Read more]
Stacking requires layers unfortunately so you would need Photoshop.
Give me a sec and I’ll see if I can extrapolate a good starting point for settings from my last night shot. If I an I’ll post it for youCheck It Out
Shutter speed 15 minutes!!!???
You need something like 10 – 20 seconds with an 18mm f3.5 lens at ISO 3200 unless you are going for star trails.
If you were going for trails you would need lower the ISO back to 100 and stop way down. Basically what you did was grossly over expose the frame.
Star trails are a lot easier to do by stacking…[Read more]
So you want to be a pro?I followed a link from Joe McNally’s blog and the article is pretty interesting so I thought I would drop a link here:
