Mole2k: love those shots, but i do feel that you could have taken those photos further with even more masking (more effect).

Love this effect when done right, of yours I think the third one works best, plenty of height but not too much depth in the scene. Applied this effect to my pic of Staithes a few weeks back, will dig out the result.

Few random survivors from the past couple of weeks:

Saw this done in one of the Photo mags last month by some french bloke I think. Looks smart and very deceiving. :thumbsup:

It's basically mimicking what your eyes expect to see from a photograph of a model with the narrow depth of field which I added in PP.

To do the effect properly you need a tilt/shift lens which allows you to move the front half of the lens to adjust the focal plane, either by making it appear larger or smaller, you make it appear smaller for the fake miniature effect or for landscapes giving you front to back sharpness. Ideally I would love something like the Canon 24mm T/S lens but for all I would use it I cant justify the cost.

Found my fake tilt shift pic:

Cheers mole, that's a canal basin so it's often quite still but almost never that still. Little bit of HDR in there, mainly to get some detail into the bridge areas but also as you say to balance exposure a touch better.

This thread got my mind working back to the idea of photography as a second hobby (Jimmy's great photos were the orginal inspiration). I picked up a Canon 1000D as my first "real" camera and have been loving it so far. I haven't had the chance to get much for good RCgraphy, but with the Winter Nats coming up in 4 weeks I might be able to get some cool shots there.

Mole2k- Did you submit a smoke photo to the dpreview challenge? If so I saw it last week and was staggered. The shapes and colour are absolutely amazing. If you don't mind me asking; what did you do to accomplish that shot? I'd like to give it a try myself.

Here are a couple of my shots thus far. Being that it is very cold and dirty in this northern Canadian industrial city there aren't a lot of photo opportunities, but I'm trying what I can. With more practice the results should get better. Photography is pretty complicated :lol:

This one was actually taken with my Nikon P5000 point and shoot using my cell phone to do the light painting and is blatent rip off of Jimmy's technique, lol.

Liverpool dock road, as Scouser said - took a wrong turn (ended up in Liverpool - joke!) and found this - a happy accident indeed.

We have an old cotton mill just up the road here, it's currently being demolished after a fire last month - I may go up later on.

Do it!

Oh, and the Karmann Ghia I looked at with a mate? Very nice indeed. Here it is stashed inconsiderately in a damp lockup in East Yorkshire...

thanks for that, respect your opinion as your shots are really good :D
they're just jpegs straight out of the camera.
i bought a new compact the other week & i'm just starting to use it
i did take a few similar shots using slightly different settings/modes but i really need to just spend time experimenting til i find what works or looks best :eh?:
i do also have the option of shooting in raw but i might save that for when i can spend more time on each image, and have learned how to use the software :blush:

that old hopper had some good colours going on but most pics it came out dark as the sky was SO bright behind it. like i said i just need to try things out :blush:

its often been said that it doesn't matter how many thousands of pounds worth of gear you own. the best camera at any given time is the one that you actually have with you ;)

my pics were taken with a compact ;)




if you're going somewhere specifically to take photos then a DSLR & lens selection can't be beaten
you will have options for getting awesome photos in every situation

however if like me you're going somewhere for another reason (lets say racing) you already have too much stuff with you anyway! in which case a decent compact fits the bill perfectly.
i can leave it on auto & just get "snaps" of people around the pits or fiddle with the settings & try for something a bit more ambitious if the time shedule allows

the pics in this gallery were from a borrowed 5MP camera just left in Auto mode
http://www.neobuggy.net/modules/xcgal/thumbnails.php?album=153&page=1

not outstanding but some OK shots in there

many keen photographers have a compact that they will always carry so they will always have an opportunity to capture that spontaneous shot!
check out the review of "enthusiast" compacts at DPReview
http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/Q408enthusiastgroup/

should be something in there you fancy

For me, i only got into photography about 3 years ago. Artwork was always one of my hobbies and the photography was a way of capturing images for me to convert to pencil drawings later on. I only tend to take my camera out if its a big race meeting or something or if someone asks me for pictures. I did some work for a group of Motorcycle stunt riders a few years ago.. that was mega fun!!

10-03-2009, 01:03 PM
I carry my camera around a lot of the time usually every time I go racing I will do it then take a few shots of the cars. Also a lot of time if I'm just heading out I will bring it too, it does make things more awkward as all my gear is a few kg added together and I quite often bring the majority of it. (with the exception of the 300mm, I usually only bring that if I know I'll be shooting things far away as it weighs over 1.5kg on it's own!)

Having said that I do take photos everyday for my 365 though :)

Great shots everybody. I love that 2nd shot PB the minimalism looks great as well as the strong colour contrasts. The drag ones look good too, I would imagine it's quite hard to get good shots of it as the action is all very samey really.

It's not the MP. It's my lens. At 200-300mm zoom it gets a bit soft. I don't have the money for Canon IS lenses. :bored:

I quite often take photos lying on the ground, water looks especially good when you get down really low as then you get the very oof bit in the frame which can look good. Or else get it all in focus which can also look good. The people I was with in the RIB taking this shot where afraid I was gonna fall in. The lens hood was touching the water for this shot.I couldnt take it now without putting the battery grip under water or taking it off.

Lighting!

Look at the reflections in their eyes and that should be a clue....

PS to remove blemishes and add a bit of extra saturation.

I noticed the softbox and the 3 reflectors in the eye but the skin on the top one just looks perfectly smooth. I guess it's just really good skin, it almost looks like a red channel b&w style effect.

Some static car photography is something I would actually love to give more of a go at, I've taken a few snaps of friends cars before but never really done anything that i've put much thought into, here's some I took the other day. Only just snaps though really, I feel much more comfortable making the car actually do something then just photographing it like a rally than taking static shots.

Here's a few from the F345 race this weekend. I'm new to RC photography, and I've got a compact camera, so any tips for getting started with basic equipment are appreciated. I really love the bits of grass flying around in the shaft of light in the second and third photos. Is there any way to really bring these out reliably?

Thanks!
Ty

Considering those are taken with a compact they are very good indeed.

It depends on what functions your camera has, if you can pre-focus somehow on the area of the scene you want to be sharp (like the area with the flying grass in it) then that will help you get thet effect with each shot.

The first image it my pick - it tells the story of the meeting.
It's the sort of photo that Jimmy would use in an 'A-final' write up.

Nice racing shots, especially for a compact. The nicely lit up bits of grass are basically a function of the really nice low warm light that was there. Your also shooting into it which has the effect of a rim light, lighting up around the outside of the grass so it actually glows in the photo. It's a very good effect and is used quite a lot (at least by me!) in photograhy.

I agree with stu the first shot is really good as it shows whats going on instead of just an action shot of a car. The action shots are great but for write ups and that the main pictures will nearly always be a picture that shows the event as a whole. My only alterations to that would of been to either zoom out (or walk backwards 2-3 steps) to fit the top of the rostrum and get a bit of a margin around the other cars, aside from that the shot is pretty much perfect.

Thats one scary looking cat showtime!

Thanks, Stu - that feedback's really helpful. I was pretty surprised how well the photos came out too - first time out with the new Panasonic Lumix ZS3.

I think I was fighting the auto image stabilisation quite a bit when trying to do panning shots - but for the ones I've posted it probably helped. All were at pretty high zoom.

Cheers!

Thanks - I can see how that rim lighting effect can be pretty cool. I just saw the lighting and just had a hunch that it'd work well. The oncoming shafts of light were just in the right place for the jump. Lucky.

I'm taking on board your suggestions about the framing, and will keep at it. Cheers!

I'm still getting use to the Full Frame, the depth of field is much more shallow on a full frame then crop body at the same aperture.

As long as the eyes are in focus then I'm fine with it. But whole knows maybe a more narrow DOF would work as well. But i'm no dog photographer lol

I drove to NYC to pick up the new camera, i'm a NYC native so I'm there often. But i didnt get to stay long like i normally like.

Heres one while walking back to the car. Yup, i couldn't wait to get my hands on it, so i took it out the box in the store. hahah

A few from a recent trip to Pyongyang this Summer.

The pre-dawn silence in the city is complete - not a single thing is moving - not a single lamp is on. It's not serene, but eerily inert and lifeless.

http://lh4.ggpht.com/_4Ul5lElT5j8/StImGCMtYvI/AAAAAAAAF74/ut5oU0qJie8/s800/PICT2950.JPG

Now due to the nature of being under strict control of what I could photograph, many of the photos on the trip had to be taken out the windows of a vehicle, and there are some reflections and/or other artifacts that spoil things. Are there any ways (filters or something) to minimise these sort of artefacts at the time? I tried keeping the lens shaded as best I could (without alarming the officials), but is there anything that can be done post-production?

other photos that show what I mean about the refelctions can be seen in this album on my picasaweb site (link) (http://picasaweb.google.com/tiyen.miller).

Thanks for any feedback - esp re photographing out of closed vehicle windows.

Cheers,
Ty

Try the patch tool just be careful crossing hard edges. Or carefully clone/paint it out using a small brush and numerous samples and making the brush harder as you get closer to the head!

Yea, I'll try and zoom in alot. I wish i would of shot this at 21mp instead of the medium setting of 9.9mp. It would of been better for zooming in and cleaning up those hairs. I have a Wacom tablet, so it should help.

I do shoot raw, my 5D Mark II has different raw file size; 21mp and 9.9mp. For all my general shooting i set it to the 9.9mb setting. But for Fashion stuff i should be shooting at the 21mp, it will allow me to zoom in larger for finer editing.

My camera is a Canon 450D with the out of the box 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS lens. Shot in manual exposure mode most of the day using the shutter speed to adjust to the light levels of being outdoor in the reserve to in the reptile house.

Hi - I absolutely love the pan shots you've got of these Bajas. It's great how the front of the car is nice and sharp and the back and mud blur away. Awesome.

A question for you though: To get such a great low perspective on the cars, do you kneel right down, sit down, or hold the camera low near your hips and look at a re-angled view screen, or what?

Thanks,
Ty
