Title: Have you been out with your camera today?
Post by: Charlotte on April 21, 2012, 10:29:21 pm
Today I have mostly been shooting a band.  This suave looking bunch of punk rockers are House Party Massacre (http://www.housepartymassacre.com) and by the look of their website, they're badly in need of some better images.  We did a spot of civil trespass and shot a few cool looking frames in a disused factory building in West London.  Here's my favourite:

They're a punk band, so naturally they're public school sixth formers.  ;D

Don't - the little darlings must have smoked their way through several kilos of tobacco whilst we were on location.  Mind you, when the shoot was over, they asked for directions to the nearest McDonalds...

We went to synchronised swimming yesterday - one of the Olympic preparation and qualification events. I know nothing of this sport - it was mostly for my daughter. However, the pictures it produced are probably some of the more unusual I have taken. Contrast could be better, but here are a few:

Their web designer also needs to be told that using a big stack of 2835x1890px images at 110x73px on the thumbnails page is evil. That one page comes in at over 56MB!

I told them as soon as I saw how badly it sucks.  I'd suggest that they give BRD a call, but I suspect that their web design budget is about the same as their photographic budget...

Went down to the church allotment project. It is a few weeks (OK months) behind schedule having only been launched this year. It was a good chance to play with the extension tubes and the 135mm lens.

I went down to the forge at Aldbourne, where my onetime work colleague Marc is starting a second career.  We only had about 90 minutes and obviously we had to have a go ourselves, so I didn't get that many pics, but I have some abstract stuff to make a website.  This is digicam crap, I'm afraid, although I could have done better with a Leica and colour film because the shutter release is about 100x more precise.

If anyone wants a good photo opportunity I daresay he'd be happy for you to hang around all day as long as he gets some digital files at the end of it.

Click through for a small set.  As a flight test it didn't matter so much that the lighting, camera settings and subject were pretty awful - we were just happy to get a wind we could play with.  The CHDK-scripted cheap Canon ticked away like a pacemaker and we got 10 out of 160 shots worth keeping.  The discard rate is huge! :)

(Memo to KAPers: fast sport mode, infinity focus, and so on to minimise the blur; mostly though, good strong light and an interesting subject to start with!)

Well, it was last week, in St Malo (not today) but I'm particularly pleased with my old Canon S70 which I haven't used in a year or so.

Wow.  This is an absolutely fantastic demonstration of how my colour vision fails me.  I had to ask someone to confirm the grey thing to the right of the plant pot was a deer, because I couldn't see where else it could be.  Then they mentioned the rabbit.   :facepalm:

I suppose it is still today..

I was photographing some colleagues who were taking part in a challenge walk - 52 miles in under 24 hours. This is mostly off road in highland Perthshire following the Cateran trail. The challenge is to get pictures that cover the day's events which means getting to them at remote locations, getting the shot in challenging conditions and then getting to the next location in time.

Prep. I picked out a lightweight camera stand, my tripod (which is far from light), flash triggers and four lenses. 10-24, 17-70, 50 and 55-200. SB800, some grids and a few miscellanous bits. In addition I had my bike to enable transport.

The start was easy - get a nice posed photo before the beginning using the SB800 on the stand to add nicer light to an overcast day and then find some places where they come close to a road where I can walk in. That was the easy bit where anyone could do it. Nice photos, people smiling. On to the first water stop.

See my team go through, then it is up the road to find a parking space. I now have to put what I need into the rucksack and head cross country on the bike, over the river and up to the trail. As I am pedalling/walking up I hear a rushing stream. I scout a bit and find a bridge with a cascade underneath. Setting th ecamera to manual to catch the walker, I can use flash to fill in the undergrowth.
 
(http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7278/7473020116_25193f278f_z.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/davidmam/7473020116/)
Untitled (http://www.flickr.com/photos/davidmam/7473020116/) by davidmamartin (http://www.flickr.com/people/davidmam/), on Flickr

Standing waiting by the water I attract a lot of attention, of the small, buzzy and biting sort. So I extricate myself, and get some pics at the top whilst waiting for my team. They appear, I get pics as they approach, switch lenses and head back down the ravine to shoot them crossing the bridge. I screwed up, they were vey good about going back and walking over the bridge again. 

Pack up, grab the bike and follow the trail to catch up and get some more shots. I really should have put the knobblies on instead of my commuting slicks. And getting the bike over 8ft high stiles is not easy.
 
Catch up, find a nce point with some foxgloves as foreground interest and get some pics. These are still nice but nothing special. I head back to the car (having planned this bit as a circular trip) and head to the checkpoint. More pictures. Technically fine, nothing exciting but they capture that part. For the close up shots of tired feet I bounce the flash off the marquee ceiling.

And then I go home, to meet up with them in the evening. I have plans which will be far more challenging.

Up to Glen Isla, and I unpack the MTB to ride back up the trail till I find a nice location to shoot. The light is dropping (it is 9pm) and patchy overcast. The quality of light is fine, the quantity difficult with a D80 (only use 400 ISO and above when desperate) and I am trusting in the VR on the 55-200. Then the sun comes out. Lots of flare, but tweaking levels nicely highlights the local wildlife - all the bright specs are midges.

(http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8011/7478719536_ab49563277_z.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/davidmam/7478719536/)
Untitled (http://www.flickr.com/photos/davidmam/7478719536/) by davidmamartin (http://www.flickr.com/people/davidmam/), on Flickr

Night starts to fall. For the next shot I want to make use of the magic blue sky/clouds with a mountain background, illuminating the walkers with gridded flash. I park the car and ride uphill for a mile in the lowest of low gears. The trail follows just outside a pine plantation but I get the view I want. Set the camera up. It will be 1/15 sec with flash. The grids don't fit very well on the flash (I have now designed an adapter that I must molish soon) but I get them pointed in the right direction. I'm tempted to put a CTO gel on and set the WB to tungsten but that will reduce my available light too much.

I am joined by a few midges. And all their friends and relations. The local bats are busy swooping around to get their evening meal. Thanks to a bike patrol chappie I acquire some deet wipes. These are great - they deter 95% of midges, leaving me free reign for the other 50 squillion.. After an interminable wait the groups appear and I get some shots. Close but could have done better. Not bad for 'you only have one shot so make it count' as go back and do it again was not on the cards.

(http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7136/7478718088_eb524f76d2_z.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/davidmam/7478718088/)
Untitled (http://www.flickr.com/photos/davidmam/7478718088/) by davidmamartin (http://www.flickr.com/people/davidmam/), on Flickr

I retrace my steps glad to be out of the midges dining room. At the car I swap light stand for tripod as a chance conversation about the glowsticks each walker has for the night leg has given some ideas.

We meet at the tea stop, a small marquee in a field. I spend time whilst they are drinking to set the tripod up and try some test exposures. The light is fading fast but eventually it is good to go. Again, one shot, they aren't coming back to do it again. Click the shutter and fire off the flash manually during the 20 second exposure. Great glowstick trails. Balanced the ambient about right for what I wanted.

Into the night.. (http://www.flickr.com/photos/davidmam/7478904582/) by davidmamartin (http://www.flickr.com/people/davidmam/), on Flickr

And so on to the next stop. This would be the hardest to get to. It is now proper dark, just gone midnight and it will take me a lot of time and effort to get to the next point. I park in Alyth and start riding up the hill (I had taken the opportunity of going home earlier to swap the knobblies onto the bike). The plan is to get a landscape view with head torch trails looking down from the top of Alyth Hill.  I ride, then walk as the track becomes steeper, and then it goes off tarmac and onto grass and boggy mud. It is warm - I am just in a helly hansen top, keeping the sleeves rolled down but there are no midges. The DEET on my face stings my eyes as I sweat and licking my lips is a bad thing.

I set the camera up and establish a test exposure - this will be long, on the order of minutes. In all I see three groups, the first one I discover that LED head torches are very bright, and have over exposed them. The second group weren't using head torches, just available light (just about doable), and the third group were mine. I had established where the boundaries of the shot were using a carefully placed bike light so as they came towards that poing I warned them to close their eyes before I fired off the flashgun. I had under estimated the distance so that was quite underexposed. And I should have allowed the shutter to stay pen for another few minutes to fill int he sky more, but it seemed to work OK for a first attempt. Hard work to get two just usable shots though.

And to the finish where at last I could unroll my bivvi bag and sleeping bag, and get about an hour snooze before getting up to meet them in.

It was still dark when they arrived at just gone 4am, but by the time we had done breakfast there was sufficient light to shoot some medal photos before heading home. I was knackered, but nothing like them after over 21 hours on their feet.

Great street photos Dan. I've begun doing some candid street stuff with my GF1/20mm and quite enjoy it but so far I've only been brave enough when I've been abroad.

Here are a few from the weekend trip to Paris (all straight out of the GF1 on the Dynamic B&W setting):

A friend of mine is racing Formula Vee's and I went to the local track (Mission Raceway) yesterday in a sweltering 35C sunshine and took a few pics. Unfortunately there's very few good spots for taking pictures and the only place was the exit of the last turn, where there was an opening in the safety barrier that allowed me to take decent pictures.

I took my camera for a walk in the West Midlands.

Well, several, actually.  Including the Rea Valley to Bell End via Waseley Hills, Kinver to Kidderminster, Hampton Loade to Kinver (thanks, Shropshire! ::-) ), Kinver to Wolverley, and Kinver to Arley.  I took hundreds of photographs, and have uploaded nearly two hundred, should you wish to see more (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v326/ado15/West%20Midland%20Walking%20Aug%202012/)

It's been a good opportunity to get to know my camera better, and so I've been experimenting a bit.  One challenge was the relentless greenness of it all, being as the majority of the walking was in woodland (not something I'm particularly used to).  Back in the day, when my OM-1 or Minox were loaded with Fujichrome, I would take many shots of the multiple shades of green available, purely for the joy of their reproduction on a transparency compared to the feebleness of a C41.  But even I got bored eventually, and it's hard to find patterns and angles which work.

I'm currently having a problem with the macro function on my camera, as the spec clearly states it should focus closer than about the 40cm I manage.  That held me back on some shots, but probably meant that the walks were a lot quicker. ;D

I've lived in Manchester now for over five years and finally today I paid a visit to the Imperial War Museum North.

(http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8422/7839355862_4510c51000_b.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/ed_o_brain/7839355862/)

Designed by architect Daniel Libeskind, the Imperial War Museum North's building features three 'shards' which the Libeskind had envisioned as parts of an  'imagined globe' shattered by conflict.
The three shards from which the museum is assembled represent Air, Earth and Water, three facets of warfare.
The air shard stands 55m high.

This ex-Iraqi T-55 Tank sits outside the Museum.


Light levels inside the museum were very low and really, photography wasn't allowed. So with limited photo opportunities I grabbed very few shots from inside. However, I've an obsession with these and so had to take this:

The T-34 was a marvel in tank design with a good balance of armour, fire power, pace and ability.

Foreground left is Granada TV's new Media City Studio under construction and to the right just disappearing out of shot are the BBC studios. In the distance on the horizon is Winter Hill.

The view north-east from the 'Air Shard' of the Imperial War Museum East. To the right of the shot is the Salford Quay's 'Lift' Bridge which was completed in 2000 spanning the Manchester Ship Canal.
Just visible in the background is the Beetham Tower which is designed by architect Ian Simpson.


And finally a shot in the vicinity of but unrelated to the museum..

This is really nice.

Seconded. Have faved on Flickr.

I'm working on.. dare I say it.. becoming quite the seasoned wedding photographer. Two weddings in a spate of four done and dusted. Two to go.
Here is today's:

"Andrew Wood Photography" is the studio I'm working for... (I say 'working' ... there's no real money yet, just a very firm business plan , a huge amount of determination and some good marketing just around the corner.)
Thx =D

great shot

I like the crop.. has a sense of honesty about it
And all of that space, give a sense of what the subject communicates she may be feeling
The tone and texture in the back wall also helps convey what the subject may be feeling.
Also like the delay in noticing the girls reflection.

Photo taken at the Association of Professional Foresters Show on Friday at the European Horse Logging Championships being held there - lots of lovely horses.  The handler was speaking German, don't know what the horse is - think possibly a Rhineland (German Heavy Draft Horse).  It was a roan colour, but I have done this in split tone, so you can't see the colour of the horse.  Absolutely stunning horse, anyway - huge and powerful, but so precise.  Looks like it could pull heavy stuff all day without any bother.

Mike, I know this is n't the right thread but I've always worried about disposing of injured creatures, such as birds and small mammals.  I'm reluctant to try and break their necks because I have no training in makingit painless.  Do you knoe what to do?  Does anyone else?  (I know about ringing the RSPCA but they aren't always handy.)

Before our building goes much further I am so wanting to get onto the site when work has finished for the day and put a garden gnome with fishing rod, a fake heropn and some plastic ducks into the 'water feature' in the middle right of this picture. A shark fin would not go amiss either.

Colour works for that better, despite the fact that for me, B&W normally wins every time.

Yesterday's fungus foray at the woods was good, not the least because I'd been in bed for over three weeks (including one week in hospital), and this was a chance to get out at last with my camera.  Anyway, here's a few

Today I have mostly been shooting a band.  This suave looking bunch of punk rockers are House Party Massacre (http://www.housepartymassacre.com) and by the look of their website, they're badly in need of some better images.  We did a spot of civil trespass and shot a few cool looking frames in a disused factory building in West London.  Here's my favourite:

I like the way you've lit it so that none of the reflective stuff shines, but I don't like the clutter of converging parrallels in the background, there are too many of them. and theyre too sharply in focus.

Post by: clarion on October 23, 2012, 09:47:37 am
I was curious about the lack of reflection.  I'm guessing we have a wide off-camera flash, but not so bright that we lose the background, which I think might have helped with the clutter.  Very inconsiderate of architects to make buildings which look messy in photos.

Shift lenses were invented to deal with those architectural problems, but that's big money.

(http://www.luminous-landscape.com/images-81//Focusing%20the%20tilt-shift%20lens-1_img_1.jpg)

http://www.luminous-landscape.com/tutorials/focusing-ts.shtml

That's with a 24 mm lens, the tilt shift has been used to bring the vertical back to the level you'd expect from being there, so it doesn't look like the building is falling away from you. That effect is due to the short focal length.

That.

I think the problem is more the clutter than the convergence, and there's very little Aunty C could have done about that.  Tbh, I think she's positioned them to minimise the distraction.

It was shot in ten minutes flat with pretty standard kit - I don't have a PC lens and I don't want or need one!  I racked my 24-70mm as wide as I could and got in nice and low to give them a bit more gravitas.  As far as the lighting goes, I usually do a quick summary of off-camera lighting on Flickr.  It's rude not to:

Quote
Strobist info: Bright sunlight on axis and no chance of waiting for better light or moving my subjects meant that I used a pair of bare SBs diagonally from behind as separation lights, both maxed out.  I deliberately underexposed the whole shebang by about a stop and pulled it back in post, adding plenty of sharpening and a bit of vignette for that 'Sweeny' look.

I knew that the retroreflective surfaces would only flare up if I used on-axis flash.  But the sunlight would make everything flat as f**k, so I decided to go for separation.  Flashes firing from behind is a dead useful technique because it makes the edges of your subject (in this case, the vehicles as well as the coppers) sparkle and pop a bit.

Shift lenses were invented to deal with those architectural problems, but that's big money.

I thought they were for giving Cornish tourist towns and power stations that "model village" look :)

The only issue with the cop shot is a lack of detail in the blacks on the legs.. needs another diffuse flash from the front but suitably off axis so the reflection is hidden behind said gentlemen of the law.

That's true, but like I said; it was shot with ten minutes and what I had in my backpack.  If I'd have been rocking a couple of pack and head combos anna giant octabox, I might have managed slightly more detail there...

< snip >It was shot in ten minutes flat with pretty standard kit - I don't have a PC lens and I don't want or need one!   Flashes firing from behind is a dead useful technique because it makes the edges of your subject (in this case, the vehicles as well as the coppers) sparkle and pop a bit.

absolutely!

surely PC lens is de rigeur for pix of plod? ::-)

pretty standard for what we (smudgers) do, one in the back to separate the subjects visually from the background, in addition to any bokeh-induced illusions of grandeur.

It's a lovely shot, but for me there's a bit of a clash between the organic and the geometric
I can't help projecting the lines of the two hedges and of the gable end behind their heads. If they ended up conforming to the thirds rule they wouldn't disturb me.

Spoil is too big a word, but it's always worth looking at the backgound for that sort of stuff, and trying to make it conform to the rule of thirds if you can't do anything about it.

Work do so photographing speakers at our in house symposium. Two gridded flashes, one FOH to pick out the speaker, gridded to miss the screen, and a second behind the speaker to act as a rim light.

At least one other forumite was there.

D80 was struggling for focus at times, especially using the less optimal edge sensors rather than the one cross-type.

Here is one without flash..

I was tempted. You had to get the AF point on a contrasty edge - the sillouette was the easiest and hope then that when (if, grr...) the speaker turns away from the slides and actually faces the audience, you can get a reasonable shot. Trying to get the slides as background and the speakers face in shot can be challenging. I should post some others but my Mac PSU cable has just died.

Nope, no lighting; just big glass and fairly high ISO.  It was pretty murky there, so I was working with big apertures.  I fluffed a few of the shots because my DOF was so thin and although my subjects were sharp, their chooks weren't.

Probably not worth the effort in this scenario, but a steady hand, manual focus with 2-5 shots at different focus points and composite together afterwards ala focus stacking.

No, not my style either.

No.  Well, I don't think so, since it's corrected to parallel.  But I've always felt that shift lenses provide an odd viewpoint, since we live in a world of converging parallels.  I don't know how to balance it myself.

 I was making stranger portraits with a mini softbox onna stick, she was shooting artsy photos of skaters, dragging her shutter.  When the ice cleared, I popped on a fisheye and made this:

Love the one of the skater, although I would have cropped it just below the reflection of the top of the building, to lose 1/3 the ice which (IMHO) doesnt add much.

I was paid (!!) to take some pictures of a hotel's christmas lights for their marketing material.  Nothing very exciting (but paid!)

My shots weren't anywhere near as accomplished as Charlotte's, since it was my first proper attempt at long-exposure fun, but my favourite few are here: http://ablogofallthingskathy.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/pretty-lights.html (http://ablogofallthingskathy.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/pretty-lights.html)

I would have liked to stay for longer, but chuff me! It was cold! :o

It was jolly cold indeed, but I had me thermals anna proper woolly hat on  :smug:

I love the carousel horse photograph, Kathy, it is one of those superb 'house of horror' style shots that turn everyday, supposedly fun things, into malevolent beings just waiting for a Hollywood darkness-that-isn't-dark to descend so that they can rampage.

Am doing my first proper wedding today, got lucky with very attractive couple and great venue, not so much with the weather...  Am currently siting in the bar having a sandwich and cuppa while they all eat lunch, then it's speeches / cake / first dance and I'm offski.

Quite stressful but am loving it - and got another booking for a wedding in Barcelona for the chauffeur and his partner in the spring 😄(if they like these photos...)

Will post pics when i can, but I'm v pleased with the quick scan on the LCD. Fingers crossed.

Just got home. SLR all day; the Leica is lovely but not great in low light. I'd also be terrified of missing focus on 'that' shot....

The weather was *awful*. The light wasn't bad in the church but the reception was mainly in a wood-panelled cave of a room.  The SD card is in the computer, the wine is open and I don't plan to look at them till tomorrow.

Was fun though. Nice people, having a lovely day.

Been there, done that.  Metz 45CL4 bounced off the ceiling, f/4 on ISO 100.  It just worked for 120 people.

Went to a wedding at Edinburgh castle on Friday. Dark with warm lighting. The official photographer (friend of the bride) was using flash bounced, with no filter. I hope the photos are B&W or there will be some interesting colour casts.
Might put a shot up later.

I was up at stupid o'clock this morning, shooting the Smithfield Market Christmas Eve meat auction.  By kind permission of market trader and Smithfield legend Mr Greg Lawrence, I was allowed backstage into the premises he and his team use to hold the Smithfield Christmas meat auction.  A traditional event that has been held every year for hundreds of years, the auction is where market traders sell off surplus stock ahead of the Christmas break, direct to members of the public, often at a very substantial discount.

This year was busier than ever; a crowd of two or three hundred turned up, with many waiting several hours for a good place.  It's absolute mayhem, but Greg always makes sure that everyone goes away with something for their Christmas dinner.

Short of shooting in a war zone, operating theatre or maybe at a bare-knuckle fight, I don't think I could have managed to get my camera gear more covered in blood and gore if I'd have tried.  I ended up taking a Manfrotto light stand into the shower to wash the blood off it.  My camera, lens, strobes and triggers got a good swab down with isopropyl alcohol to get the goop off them.

Here's some of my favourite ones, rendered in B&W:

After hearing tales of last year's meatfest, I went and asked nicely beforehand.  I'm beginning to realise that anyone can just turn up and point a camera at things; the real work in this sort of photography is in doing the legwork first, getting to know people and gaining their trust.  I'm hoping to do some more formal portraiture with some of the characters at the market and this ought to be a good first step...

I'm spectacularly failing with the YACF 12 days of Christmas thing, but I *was* out with my camera yesterday.  And a bunch of speedlights.  And an assistant (get me  ::-))

I was shooting street portraits up at Borough Market and this is the sort of thing I was doing:

I have been out along the railway that I hope to turn into a cycle path. Despite the drainage, I managed to traverse all but 20m ( which necessitated climbing a 50ft cutting wall, 100m walk and then descend the cutting again) and finally got detailed notes of the drainage that is there and it's condition. I was very pleased to discover that much of the original 150 year old cast iron pipes are still intact, though becoming clogged. They are 30" id and laid in 6ft sections (or thereabouts.) Next time I will take a shovel.

But it looks good. There is nothing that requires much more than a man with a digger  and a chainsaw to fix the drainage.

This was the bit I had to bypass..

Untitled (http://www.flickr.com/photos/davidmam/8329551581/) by davidmamartin (http://www.flickr.com/people/davidmam/), on Flickr

This is a section of pipe that has broken in (This is early castings - pre Bouch so QC wasn't the best, especially as it was not structural) and it appears to have got quite clogged. The water depth is about 8 inches and it is a 30" pipe (the wall thickness is 1") There isn't the flow to justify it being that full so there must be a blockage somewhere.

Untitled (http://www.flickr.com/photos/davidmam/8329570369/) by davidmamartin (http://www.flickr.com/people/davidmam/), on Flickr

With the drainage sorted (mostly by removing the trees that have clogged the culverts), this kind of flooding should be a thing of the past.

This is the kind of 'tree blocking a culvert' incident. Unless you know what to look for you wouldn't even see the culvert as s o much soil has washed in and with virtually no flow it has not cleared. (And a bridge for good measure.)

Things to remember include:

Wind on the film before cocking the shutter

Weston use different film speeds

It may be a German camera, but it's measured in feet :facepalm:

ETA: Don't take anyone's word for it that they've sent you a 100ASA film.  Look at it, because if you discover when you take it out that it is a Provia 400X (E6, so not much latitude), you will be as pissed off and embarrassed as I currently am. :(

(http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t299/jacomus-rides-Gen/NewishTube_zps8ad62112.jpg)

The major annoyance for me is that I needed a bit of 'right hand down' or to be a little closer to the wall as the photo has a really strong focal point, which is off centre which I think makes it a little difficult to look at.

We have our suspicions about the top of that spire. The scaffolding has been up for some time. The top did disappear (was truncated) and has now reappeard (in a very clean sandstone colour). We suspect it may be fibreglass and a well disguised mobile phone mount.

remember Kenny Thomas (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenny_Thomas_(singer))? no, me neither.  I had an email from his pianist who had seen my website (no idea how), they were doing a video session and wanted some stills for PR to take to record companies and try and get a recording contract.

Met at an orange cave in Luton this morning and had a great time listening to him and taking pics when I could.  Here's one:

So this weekend was supposed to be jam packed with opportunities for making great photographs.  I had two people booked to shoot on Saturday, a fashion student wanting to do street style lookbook stuff in the morning and an actor for headshots in the afternoon.  Then on Sunday, I was going to be doing a burlesque shoot in the studio.

And most of it went to shit :)

My Saturday got cancelled early; both my student and my actor cried off because of the weather and I can’t really blame them because shooting on the street would have been bloody cold.  They both gave me plenty of notice and that was fine.

Then I got a call from a friend who’s a pro shooter who wanted an assistant for the day.  He had a job that couldn’t easily be cancelled and was going to be shooting outside in the city – he needed someone to help with the lighting gear and asked whether I fancied coming along for the ride.  Some of you might know him as he’s a cyclist and was part of C+ and ACF back in the day – Anthony Upton (http://www.anthonyupton.com).  He’s a splendid chap and a really awesome shooter.  Despite the cold, I had a great day and learned tons – I totally recommend going out and helping other photographers, because it’s a great way to see how other people work.  After the shoot, Ant bought me lunch and even showed me his digital workflow back at home.  Despite the fact that we’re both Mac owning Lightroom users, his method is totally different and it’s given me stacks to think about the way I work.

What impressed me the most was that even during the working day, he was still thinking about his personal work.  Ant's doing a 365 project, as well as participating in the 100 Strangers group that I’m involved in on Flickr.  He managed to shoot two strangers whilst we were on location – both of them very simple, natural light portraits on a 50mm.

So that was my Saturday, carrying Quadras about and standing lookout for the Liverpool Street station security guards.  For Sunday, I was booked into my friend Karen’s studio with a model who wanted to shoot burlesque and corsetry work.  Although we’d not shot together, I’ve known her for a year and she’s shot with some of my friends.  Everyone said she was a very reliable model and we’d talked loads on the phone making plans for the day, but come the morning of the shoot, she flaked on me.  I wouldn’t have minded so much but we spoke the night before and she said she was driving in for a 10:30 start.  Come 11am, I was at the studio with everything set up and I phoned to ask if she was okay.  No reply, but I got a text to say that she “didn’t think it was safe to drive” and was calling it off.

If she’d have called me at eight to tell me that, I could have called and cancelled, but once we were there with everything turned on and running, even though I was on mates’ rates, it was still going to cost me.  So my friend Simon and I spent an hour or two playing with the lights and he gave me a quick lesson on how to use a fresnel modifier – the technique I was planning on using to shoot my burlesque stuff.  I did a portrait of him:

Simon Fairclough (http://www.flickr.com/photos/lyope/8399203936/) by lyope (http://www.flickr.com/people/lyope/), on Flickr

So out of my weekend’s carefully plans, I made one good frame.  But I learned a lot and that’s actually much more valuable to me in the long run than burning ones and zeros on my CF cards.

Charlotte, you are very kind with your words and it was great to have you along, it's ALWAYS good to have to explain why you do certain things on a shoot, it makes you think about what you are doing and it reinforces your own knowledge or gets you to think about the shoot and the different ways of doing it.

Been checking out your flickr stream and there is some great work, which I sorta knew there would be, from our conversations.

As always the conversations were far wide and ranging not just about photography.

Looking forward to the 100 strangers meet up in Feb, which I really hope to make.

Not today and not me. It's been nice to edit someone else's footage for a change. My mate Dave Robinson has a pretty good eye, and it was interesting to be the model for a change, although -4C and a biting wind at 2,000 feet is not ideal. There'll be a lot more snow this week, but the roads won't be as suitable for the cycling shots.

Good to see you Sam!]

Busy day here... two sets of headshots this morning - both gents well past their prime but really pleased with results thanks to careful posing and careful lighting.
The afternoon spent critiquing work for participants on a photography beginners course I'm running and writing copy for a couple of upcoming boudoir/makeover/family photography promotions.
And an evening spent creating some seriously good product photos for a client that now has their products stocked in John Lewis. The first shot was a very creatively lit - using a single strobe, taking multiple shots using a range of modifiers and then combining the results in Photoshop.

(https://dl.dropbox.com/u/28106682/_DC15476-Edit_iPad.jpg)

Thankfully the second image was much simpler using just two shots. I just wish the the bottles/labels were of slightly better quality!
Then finally finished editing up a set of images for a renowned and recently refurbished local restaurant to use in their new publicity.

I was at the London Bike Show on Saturday, and wandered onto the Primal stand. On the strength of my extensive qualifications (I had a DSLR round my neck), they asked me to take photos at their lunch-time team launch, and three of my efforts have even been used in a press release (http://www.velouk.net/2013/01/22/team-news-spin-rotor-primal-coriginals-launches-at-london-bike-show/).

Oh gosh, I did it for the fun of it. I'm not up to the pressure of actually having to produce results, like some of you are. I wasn't sure they'd be good enough, even after I took them (and you should see the ones I quietly deleted).

If they paid me, the next thing they'd be asking me to cover another event, and I'd be worrying that I'd just get a load of blurs and flashes not going off ;D

They did give me some socks before I'd even pressed a shutter button, which was pretty brave of them, I thought ;D There's mention of a possible return favour, but after that listing in Cycling, this is my greatest cycling success to date, so I'm happy :thumbsup:

I was more concerned with the composition, the Sony has Auto HDR, so I should have thought about that. There are so many different angles going on with the digger.

I was also concerned to get the sweep panorama of the finished job right. Hedges are an important feature of that particular landscape, and it's an ideal opportunity to show that continuity depends on good maintenance. It's one of those instances where I think you'll find that it's very much about the hedgelaying. I particularly like the field barn.

Been out with a colleagues camera to play with some video on the dSLR

Nikon D3100.
Conclusions:
Video is actually quite hard to shoot. It must all be right all the time. It always seems so rushed when you play it back - lack of time and space at the ends.
Keeping it steady requires a decent mount system. My cheap tripod suffered.

Focus. Hard to do. Follow focus is tough. Follow focus whilst zooming is almost impossible.  Especially with a small LCD screen.

However, many of the static shots were OK, the sound was surprisingly usable despite it being the onboard microphone (which numpty forgot to check the batteries in the digital recorder before setting out?)

It will take a lot more time to be vaguely proficient with it. I've stitched a few clips together and will post a youtube link when it has uploaded.

Well, cameras, actually.  As I wasn't able to ride a bike, I took my Zeiss for a walk in the park.  Gave me a chance, with diffused mid-level light, to check out the Gossen meter and the camera itself.  I learned online how to take an incident light reading with the Gossen (it's really quite clever, and I'll no doubt bore people with it next time we're out photographing together).  I got my routine down with winding on, settings and cocking the shutter.  Actually, I can see the cocking lever through the viewfinder, so I can tell if I've forgotten that bit. :-[

After I'd tried turning the camera a couple of times to get a portrait view, I managed to keep in mind that it is 6x6.  Unfortunately, I find it difficult to compose in square format (which is why I sold my TLRs), but I'll struggle on.

In keeping with the tech, I chose some more 'timeless' views to photograph, and finished the roll just before the rain came down.

After a cup of tea, I swapped to digital, and carried on with 'old' photos, playing with the gimmicky sepia effect in the camera, to see how it turned out.  Not too bad, as it happened, but they aren't exciting shots:

they said they wanted a mix of different styles, so they could decide what they wanted for their wedding so I had a lovely time playing in lightroom.  Here's a couple, there's more on the flickr..

Went up the Shard. Took my camera. Lots of internal reflections on the glass, so if I go back I'll bring a heavy black cloth and some rubber suckers to stick to the window and drape over myself and the camera. The windows are tinted too, which I'll have to correct at some point. London is pretty dull in the daylight, but at night it really does look a lot better.

Clever timing of the drops from the burette so that the second drop lands on the top of the splash from the first.  :thumbsup:
Title: Re: Have you been out with your camera today?
Post by: David Martin on February 11, 2013, 01:50:32 pm
That is what the arduino is doing. When the camera shutter is tripped it causes a signal on the hot shoe. This triggers an interrupt ont he arduino which opens and closes a solenoid to allow a drop to pass through, waits the right amount of time and then triggers the flash.

I set the arduino program to increase the delay between drop release and flash by 5ms each photo so could then calculate how long between drops I needed to get them to collide exactly where I wanted (ca 100ms for reference[1]). 

About 250ms later the flash fires. +5ms each shot so I can easily build up the stopped frame animation. Overall we shot about 400 frames in test and final.

[1] remembering that that time includes the drop formation time so is from start of cycle to start of cycle.

Although I'm never one to poopoo the idea of an espresso, just go to the 'share' drop down panel and click 'Grab the HTML/BBCode' and you should be presented with a bunch of text to copy and paste in.

I'd do it for you, but it's only the image owner who is able to do this.  Are you logged in?

Out on a quickie outdoors test shoot with a new model and makeup artist.  We packed it in after half an hour down by the river in Hammersmith; too bloody cold by half!

Cool pics Gerald..

I was out with my daughter and we trudged through the snow up onto Lundie Crags.

Every so often the light became magical..

Wow.

All I've got so far today is some chilly swans, my usual "before I go into work" subject, unless I can find the elusive little egret.  David's cairgorms photos certainly capture the feeling of being there, excellent stuff.  I'm very happy to note Charlotte's ability to capture beautiful eyes, well, beautifully.

Here is the processed version of one of yesterday's shots. 3 exposures blended, then a tweak of curves. The colour difference between the shadows and the clouds are real - nothing added, nothing taken away.

that's fantastic David, love the 2 layers of clouds.

I'm in the lake district this week, and thought i'd get up skiddaw before the weather turned this afternoon.  Got it completely wrong - when I got there at 10am it was -10, with winds that must have been 40 or 50mph, sideways snow and lots of ice underfoot - I was glad i'd carried crampons up with me.

then this afternoon, it was like this:

Yes. Just set the camera to auto bracket +- 2 stops. Shot three pics then aligned in photoshop and used a graduated mask on each one. The equivalent would have been to use a 3 and 6 ND grad filter with the 6 at the top, 3 at the bottom, overlapping to give a 9 in the middle. But I didn't have any with me so PS had to do. I then tweaked the curve to enhance the contrast in the clouds.

At the risk of hogging this thread, I got a great set of images today from the Manchester Art Gallery. Went to visit the Raqib Shaw exhibition which is well worth the trip. It's elegant, grotesque and very challenging to the viewer.

Anyway, here's a teaser. There are more on FlickR if you are interested. (Well worth a look for the comparison between George Stubbs "Cheetah and Stagg with Two Indians" and Shaw's homage to it)

Fortunately, Butterfly's Fuji was ok, but I missed the shot I wanted.

Aye.  A tad of subtle infill ;)

They were filming something in Trinity Church Square.  Unfortunately, I didn't have time to hang around to take advantage of the great many photographic opportunities which presented themselves, as I was hurrying off to the bank, so I took three or four snaps and went on.

I did get some good shots in Borough Market, though, in the morning and after going to the bank.  I'll post some later.

Interesting project.

You do like your macro, don't you?

I too have noticed the heavy macro influence, and that is a habit I will have to try and break.   but it has been forced upon me as I struggle to think up ideas while not really leaving the house much. 

The project is to force me to carry my camera more, and get back into my photography, I have already taken more pictures in the last 70 days than the previous 2 years combined.  So it seems to be working, and hopefully my pictures are getting a bit better / interesting.

The struggle is creativity.  and remembering to be creative before it has become dark as I am a bit rubbish when it comes to using a flash.  Something else I will have to work on.

Don't think of it as a weakness!  It's a strength.  Thinking about seeing things in a new way is what photography is all about, and, if that involves macro, then go with that.

I'm a bit crap with flash, too. :-[

Now that is a good bit of positivity that I will try and count on for today.  Thanks..

Part of the exercise is to learn, and to work out what I do, and what I don't and the reasons behind things,  I tend to see the macro shots, and feel that wide angles are cluttered.. that might also be because I don't really have any wide angle lenses...   But my camera has an inbuilt flash so I should know how to use it, and I don't really, which is my biggest problem.

I went to an open-day at the nearby Artists' Studio and Workshops in Quarley, Hampshire.  Lots of extremely talented painters, sculptors and artisans including some globally reknown ones.

Ever since I heard about Damien Hirst's Verity - the colossal naked pregnant sword-wielding dissected woman - I've wanted to get a kite up and get some close-ups.  It turns out you can't fly a kite easily there, because she's on a bit of harbour (possibly from the car park in lowest season), but even so, she was well worth the trip.

Gerald, They are both gorgeous. As is the subject.

Bit of a birthday bash with a great venue and a great band. I were there to party first and take photographs second - so all I took was two primes and a single strobe. Really not a photogenic venue in any sense. But I'm reasonably happy with what I captured. And surprised by my hit rate - 1 in 4 - which considering the light levels (there really wasn't any - I couldn't see peoples facials expressions until I was oggling the LCD image (p)review)

All processed to look like Kodak T-MAX 3200. Although the effect of all that noise is lost slightly on downsizing for t'web.

I always find bluebells a difficult subject. A large sensor camera often needs a tripod to get the required depth of field. I took this one with a Fuji M603 I got in 2003. I've tried to get the same effect with a handheld Sony NEX5, but it's a compromise between depth of field and camera shake.

I find it very hard to capture Bluebells as nicely as this Mike.

(http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8139/8755410126_015d2c46cb_z.jpg)

I think the main problem is that most cameras tend to boost the exposure because of the, usually, dark Bluebell woods, and in so doing lose the atmosphere.

It may pay to set my camera to underexpose to get a true impression of them.

As the incremental cost of taking another pic is minimal, shooting manual and bracketing will give you the exposure you want.

Post by: Exit Stage Left on May 23, 2013, 02:24:03 pm
Woodland photography presents interesting problems because of the different way in which the human eye and cameras work. How we see colour depends on how much light our eyes receive. We have two different sets of receptors, one of which is more sensitive to colour differences.
There is also a huge difference in the perceived sharpness of what we see. Unless we use a long exposure, and there is no movement, then using a large sensor camera, we can't get the impression of everything being in focus that the brain gets from the eye scanning the scene. The best we can hope to do is to take the scene at a hyperfocal f stop, which will vary with sensor size, also determining the shutter speed.
The impression of colour that each individual will get will be personal to them, so the same print of bluebells won't always match what different people see. I'd aim to get the foreground flowers in focus, and the first 5 metres.
I'm not entirely happy with this one, but I find it easier to work with a small sensor camera in such a setting.

back to the woods for me today, for a slightly trespassy portrait shoot with a family.  They liked it and have booked me for cute baby's christening in a couple of months :)

Yes. I lugged the D80 all the way to the top of a munro, only to discover I had neglected to bring a memory card with me. :(
Title: Re: Have you been out with your camera today?
Post by: David Martin on May 26, 2013, 10:14:04 pm
And the reason for no memory card was that I had removed it to upload photos from yesterday.

The Snow Roads Audax. When I first photographed this I went for the Time Trial look. Long lens, nice background and used a remote flash in the less than clement weather and early sunshine.
This gets a bit samey, it is however very safe as you are almost guaranteed (as much as anything) to get the shot. Last year I had a new lens to play with and used the same this year. It was a Nikon 10-24 zoom, and as I could walk/run at the speed of the riders on Cairn O'Mount I could get in close, really close and capture the agony and ecstasy far more than with the long lens.

The main problems were the sun, at the time I was shooting, this meant going almost directly into the sun, and wanting a low angle meant I couldn't look through the viewfinder. Other settings: flash set to +1 exposure comp and 17mm. ISO 100 and apeture 6.3 which with that lens guarantees everthing in focus.

Here are some examples:

My club mate Kenny. He doesn't do hills but really beasted this one..

More elegantly, Dr Kate, a fantastically strong rider though she has only been doing longish distances for a year or so.

And a nice bit of lens flare. I am holding the camera less than a foot from his handlebars.

It is really risky if you *must* make the shot, but I really like the results, especially with the sun.

And I discovered that not changing the fifth battery along with the others in the SB800 can lead to it getting very, very hot (and frantically trying to change it whilst running backwards uphill alongside a rider..)

Took two trains to get to Blackfriars so I could have a wander through the fringes of the City, down ginnels and across the wobbly bridge to pass Tate Modern.  I misjudged it slightly, and arrived at work three minutes late.  But it was worth it.  I think I got one really good photo, and several of the sort which please me and leave others baffled.

Dull; drizzling; flat light; unpromising.  Using Canon G11.  I'll try to upload them later.

Sun is shining but not much time on my hands.
And sadly, the garden was shaded by the time I got to it. These could have done with a little more DoF, but I quite like them none the less.



Bonus points to anyone who can tell me what they are called....

One of my odder worksites. I look after the trees in the tubes, weeding around then in this instance. The suitcase contains a pig carcase, to provide forensic data I assume. Other mesh cages cover alfresco dead pigs, or the sites of shallow graves. It's as if a macabre Damien Hirst installation has been produced for my sole benefit. The pigs hung by the neck from a scaffolding jibbet are particularly striking. I've titled the whole work, 'Man's Inhumanity'.

ESL,

What do you do?



I'm a conservation contractor who plants trees and maintains them in this instance. Odd things happen in woods, the people involved in that project are replicating some of the forensic aspects.
But today I'm doing some firewood splitting, and sorting out my motorbike. I did pop out into the back garden to get a snap of the silaging beyond the fence. I could have taken the shot from the kitchen. It's amazing how leggy the Cow Parsley is this year.

I wanted some photos of my family cooking, as that's what they spend most of their time doing. So I just put the camera by the cooker and just used the remote.  Worked quite well, question is when I go back to Hong Kong and all the cookers are geared towards woks and are essentially flame throwers, will the camera survive...

Um... isn't that a single stigma and multiple stamens? It's a long time since I did any botany but I thought the stamens were the male polleny things and the stigma the female bits. Monogyna would also imply single female to me.

You're quite right there, that's what comes of  concentrating on the rather difficult spelling of Crataegus, we generally just call it Crat mon. The two stigma Midland Thorn tends to be planted only in a red flowered ornamental form, as it's an indicator of ancient hedgerows.

I've done a few weddings recently, with a few more coming up and although the day is immensely stressful I really enjoy it - the main concern afterwards is whether the couple will like the photos of their day.  A couple of weeks back I sent the pics from this one (http://simpleimages.co.uk/wedding/anna-and-adam-in-cambridge/) to the bride and groom and got a lovely note back in the post!

Yesterday was Town Criers. Hopefully some good captures but I wish I'd adjusted the back focus settings first.  >:( >:(

Yesterday, we went out with some folk of Rangefinder Forum for a stroll from South Bank to Spitalfields via the wobbly bridge, St Pauls and Petticoat Lane.  It was for their annual Decisive Moment challenge.  I don't think I've got any street shots which will stand up against the worldwide competition, but I'm keeping my powder dry on them.

I took a few architectural shots I'm pleased with, though.  Just need to get the films developed, and I'll see what I've got.

A few random shots, some very mildly famous individuals:

I'm sure I have the same shot with her in profile, but as I'd already captured quite a few reasonable photographs of Rosie (given the ambient lighting/on camera flash combination), the shot you quoted was all about the delight of the person receiving a signed copy of her book.

I thoroughly enjoyed her recital. Rosie is incredibly comfortable in front of the camera too, which is nice.

I like the moments delay before you realise there is a rider under that bike.

Was the rider okay?


Here's the front cover from last Thursday:

Must admit, with the mixed lighting (I don't like the blue cast the background has) and the overly softened skin, it wouldn't have been my first pick, but none-the-less a front cover is a front cover.

Here's a shot of a dog resting 'twix cooling off over the weekend:

It looked like he was - he was very demonstrative when he got up. Not so sure about the bike - some spendy repairs on it, I'd imagine.

I'm frazzled. First studio shoot, first time with studio lighting, seven performers - martial arts, dance, movement and stage combat, three hours, small hot room. Some satisfaction, some frustration - no time to optimise lighting for the unexpected and no real opportunity to follow up on some potential shots that were a whisker away.

Towards the end I was struggling, my planned set-ups had gone well, busking from them had worked but for some reason I struggled to get back to what I had planned and known to have worked. Fatigue I think.

Some satisfaction, some frustration - no time to optimise lighting for the unexpected and no real opportunity to follow up on some potential shots that were a whisker away.

Nice.  It's a shame you didn't get some light on the background to blow out the ugly wall/floor transition.  It can be sorted in post, but shooting on white is a bastard for that sort of thing.  It's one of the reasons I prefer a light grey seamless a lot of the time now.  So much more versatile, but loads more forgiving and needs way less jibbling about in LR/PS/whatever.

Although it's hard if your model's moving about a lot, I'd possibly have added a separation light as well, to add a little pop to their sides and hair.  A voice-activated lightstand with a snooted or gridded speedlight is enough and if you've got multiple people on-set, you can usually find another pair of hands and tell them to, 'point that there'...

Although it's obvious where you put your key lights, I'd be interested to see any BTS snaps you took.

Out for a wander around Preston Island by Torry Bay (more of an ash lagoon reclaimed land, rather than an actual island) with my Canon SX40HS.
Not much to be seen, apart from a few Swallows who were flying about eating midges and resting on fence wire:

Canon SX40 HS, hand held, 840mm (35equiv) + 2x digital teleconverter = 1680mm focal length.  :o Not to shabby image quality!   :)

Tried using photo spheres today, while killing time dropping off the other half at the airport. Quite good fun. Started taking the photo, then handed it over to the other half mid way through, so managed to appear in my own photo 3 times

I never realised that he was a bit of a birder  :)

Sadly, I'm not a nature photographer.  Things that move are an unnusual challenge for me and this is about the best I did all morning:

But my favourite shots of the day were made in the pub afterwards.  This is Julian and her new otter:

Acting on a tip-off I wandered to my nearest park at lunchtime as there is some new sculpture. This will be instantly recognisable to geeks of a certain age.. Unfortunately I just had the phone on me. I'll head down with more kit when there is a nice sunset.

Agreed, the sculptures are missing a couple though, where is the faller with their umbrella, the basher, digger, miner and the nice one would be a blocker.

The fun thing is that they are on a wall which would provide an ideal platform for more. I'll see if I can find the artist and if there are plans for the full set.

Taken in The City, near to Bank. I'd never seen one of those signs before - it was a strip of what looked like grip tape, stuck on the pavement with the writing in white.

Nice gritty capture that Jacomus.

I think it would be nice to have waited until there was some movement in it, couple of peeps walking down the far pavement just visible in the background perhaps. Than the leading line/perspective up the street would have something to lead to.


Photographed a lovely wedding at the weekend. I've only just uploaded/backed up all the photos and I'm really excited by what I've seen.
Couple of randomish novel shots. Can't wait to finish editing this one..

I had the weekend at Womad. Suffering from some serious back-focussing, which pissed me off, considering f2.8 is a useful aperture on a low lit stage.

Some photos are in other threads, but I liked this one.

That's brilliant! As good a panning shot as you can ever hope to get I'd say.  Very marketable.

Just back from a weekend criscrossing the German - Netherlands border around the Niederrhein area. 

Chance sighting of sign to War Cemeterey so we sidetracked a couple of km.  On that day each stone had a single rose laid on the grass at it's foot - all funded and laid by local people.

No photos to show for it yet, obvs, but I walked to work with my new camera, an Exa I (http://camerapedia.wikia.com/wiki/Exa_I), as old as I am.

It was my first time using a waist-level finder since I sold my ETRS in about 2005, and my first time WLF on the street since I sold my Microcord in about 1990.  It's a bit disorienting, but I managed OK.  Except for the portrait orientation shot I took, which did my head in.  I did check my focus against the distance marked on the lens, so I was in part scale focussing really.

The lens (a Carl Zeiss Jena 50/2.8) has a long throw between 3m and infinity, so focussing was a bit tricky, even with the built in loupe.  My shooting was very slow.  I hope this means the images are more considered, but it may mean just that they are almost in focus :-[

With the Exa I, I also got an Exa Ia, with Ludwig Meritar 50/2.9 (http://camerapedia.wikia.com/wiki/Exa_Ia), which needs a bit more love, and does have a prism (they are interchangeable, so I could have had an eye-level finder this morning, had I chosen.  But I wanted to play.  I also got an Exa IIa with a Domiplan 50/2.8 (http://camerapedia.wikia.com/wiki/Exa_IIa) which seems to only have one shutter speed working.  I'm considering discussing with the seller, but I got all three for £11, so it's still a bargain, even if I only get one functioning SLR, and sell on the other two spares or repair.  Or even sell on one, and use one to learn about camera repair (I'm told the Exa is an excellent one to start on).

The lenses are all different and ingenious in their own way.  Because the Exa has a front shutter release and no auto stopdown, there needs to be a way of setting the aperture after focussing and before the shutter trips.

The CZJ has a long plunger from the front of the lens, which looks remarkable steampunk, expecially with the zebra focussing ring.  When you press the plunger, it activates the stopdown mechanism in the lens, then presses against the shutter release.  The Domiplan has a similar system, but it is a lever which looks like a focussing lever.  It flaps backwards, again first activating the stopdown, then, a moment later, the shutter.

The Ludwig Meritar is different again.  No auto stopdown, so you set a stop on an aperture ring, then rotate it to the stop (which you can then do without looking) before exposure.  Soooo many opportunites for forgetting.  I intend to try out all three lenses on the working body and see how the results turn out.

Early morning traffic on A1(M) wasn't conducive to photography so one from our weekend jaunt to Germany. 

We had just finished an early evening guided walk around Kleve finishing at the castle.  As we were getting ready to leave and head for dinner the sun made a very late appearance.

Off to the rocky beach with the students today. Unfortunately the tide was in. I went back when the tide was out and took the S30 (small kids waterproof camera from Nikon). Impressed with the close up video capability.

A bit of light industrial archaeology:  the long-defunct Craven Lime Works, just outside Settle, has a fantastically well-preserved example of a Hoffman kiln, all just open to wander around and in.

Go through one of the 20 or so entrances around the outside, through the 4 foot thick wall:

Sorry  ;D

It was a continuous process, they worked their way around the oval tunnel taking about 6 weeks to get back to the start and then away again.  Each chamber was filled in turn through its entrance with limestone, coal tipped in through chutes in the roof, then as it burned it warmed up the limestone in the next chamber prior to that one being fired.  About 2 chambers back from the burn, the lime had cooled enough to be brought out.  And so it went on.  Fascinating stuff.

Today I was cycling through the New Forest and came across what I later learned  was called a 'drift'. New Forest ponies, which can roam freely for 364 days a year, are rounded up so that such tasks as worming, branding and tail-clipping can take place. The ponies are rounded up by people on horseback, and driven to a pound. There was lots of waiting around, then 10 seconds of furious activity while people try funnel the stampeding ponies towards the pound. Some of the ponies object to being funnelled into the pound, and make a bid for freedom. This woman is bravely trying to redirect a couple of tons of scared-out-of-its-wits lasagna horseflesh back towards the pound. She survived.

Did you actually have decent lighting for the speakers or have to import your own? Most of the conferences I have been photographing at require careful setup of gridded flash beforehand to get anythign like that without washing out the screen

Tried that on previous events and it generally, it pisses people off.

These were all made with a 70-200mm at f/2.8 and ISO1600 on my D700. As ever, the ambient light sucked rocks, so a combination of careful framing, VR and a wall to brace myself against let me shoot down to slowish speeds.

Conference I did last month was similar, mostly at f2.8, choose framing carefully and get the timing right. Flash spooks speakers* and annoys audiences. A conference photographer should be not seen or heard.

*Camila Batmanghelidjh would have stopped speaking and frozen. Same effect from the noise of a camera.

Fortunately you had well lit rooms. Most of what I have done has had the speaker in near darkness. A gridded flash (very gridded) into a light sink (ie a bunch of black curtains) is relatively discreet *if* you haven't got the lighting to shoot with (if you don't mind sillouettes of speakers then that is fine.)

Then again science conferences are different.

I tend to take the view that if there is enough light for the audience to see then there is enough light to get shots. Unless you need glossy colour magazine quality.

Different when you have a projector screen to balance against and the rest of the room is dark. Different situations - different methods. (and a rather older camera where high and iso do not belong together.)

Leica Monochrom and Zeiss 50 C-Sonnar. This was at iso 1250 plus a little bit of additonal exposure in Lightroom. The Monochrom is leaving me completely amazed. The combination of very clean tonality and resolution that is clear without being sharpended, I think because there is no demosaicing required, is the best I have ever seen. I am going to have to sell some stuff off to pay for the mono, but it has already earned its place.

I do some large format as well. It's a different way of photographing, which I enjoy. If you're building and can stretch to 5 by 7, you might try that as you can then make a nice size of contact print too. A reducing back can still take 4 by 5 of course. Depends on how much time you have for the carpentry. My local shop has a very nice looking Wista 4 by 5 in the window for £500. My Shen Hao with 4 by 5 and 5 by 7 backs cost me £700 and I've got an Apo-Symmar 210 lens, bought used. Total budget was £1,000, and I already had darkroom trays and a contact frame. Some time I'll try to scan a neg on my epson scanner too.

Obviously I meant 5x4 above, but then I think you realised I'd made a typo.

I'd never really thought about making it 5x7, but that does indeed make sense.  I could either do basic carpentry (using a lathe and milling machine is more my thing) or "contract out" the woodwork to a friend who is a demon cabinet maker.  I've got no idea how much a bellows will cost, but hey, its only money...  must get back to ebay to scout for lenses.  No lens, no project...  I've not yet checked out film availability and prices, and I've not currently got developing kit, but I used to do 35mm and 120 in reasonably large amounts for a casual amateur, so that won't worry me.

I'm going to have to find some time to dig out the large format stuff again. Not sure if I actually have access to a darkroom at the moment.

Robert White have got Shen Hao wide angle 7x5 bellows for £66 at the moment. You could build around those if your using a 90.

Peter Walnes (Arri888 on ebay) has a 90 super angulon xl I think on ebay for 550 - that looks nice and I've bought from him in the past (actually I would like that lens, but can't really afford at the moment)

I develop large format in trays

Took some video at our training session today - hand held under normal room lighting with a 50/1.8 on the D610. ISO 6400 for much of it. Totally uncorrected, just a quick cut and shut. First video I have shot with it - very impressed but now have to get my skills up to match the camera.

iMovie is crap - it hasn't done the audio delete it claimed. Never mind - Youtube free tracks to the rescue.

Stunning

It's quite nice if you lose the dark shadow areas left and right, about 1cm each side on an iPad screen.  They don't contribute anything to the shot.  Better in monochrome too IMHO.

these arent from today but i've just got round to processing them, so I guess it counts...  It was a fun day with a couple of models, stylist and makeup artiste all wanting something 'fairytale' for their books.  Not my normal sort of thing, it felt a bit like playing dress-up with too much pink, but it's all learning!!

It's good news if it opens doors.
It's bad news, like 7/10 "free" gigs if it doesn't.

Just finished processing a winter wedding. Apologies for the borders (which look terrible on here). I've nabbed them straight from my website.

It is always that bit harder in the winter because it's dark! Especially when the ceremony's not until 4pm.
And I've just finished a product shoot. I'm still shooting aroma diffusers:

I've built the set for this one. On a budget of course.




And ironically, I've applied for a job today. Digital content marketing for publishers of a few regional lifestyle magazines. They seemed genuinely excited at the prospect and I'll be grateful of some more regular income.

From last Saturday, Burg Berwartstein in the Rheinpfalz:
(http://www.pbase.com/johnewing/image/154247899.jpg) (http://www.pbase.com/johnewing/image/154247899)

This was the seat of Hans von Trotha, who had a feud with the monastery of Wissembourg, a local town. He once damned the river that flowed through the town, about 8 km upstream from it. When the abbot complained he simply removed the dam, flooding half the town and drowning many of its inhabitants.  To this day he's remembered as Hans Trapp, a bogeyman figure who's supposed to do nasty things to naughty children at Christmas.

He was excommunicated for immorality by a Borgia pope (which must have taken some doing), and so when he died he should have been buried outside church precincts; but since he was a member of the nobility he was accorded burial in a small wayside chapel, the Sankt-Anna-Kapelle near the local village of Niederschlettenbach. However, the pope ordered that the door be kept locked all year round with the exception of 26th July, the anniversary of his opening the sluices.

Along with me on this ride was our club prez, who used to look after electrics and electronics for Wissembourg Theatre. One 26th July they put on an open-air performance centred around the flooding story. It was a blazing hot summer before and after that day, but just as the performance was due to start a storm rolled up (shades of The Witches of Eastwick) and drenched everything.

This is what all our local castles would look like if Louis XIV hadn't ordered their destruction.

A bunch of pics from a meander around the north edge of Tentsmuir. The concrete blocks were placed in 1941 as a welcome to our continental friends.

Quite a big fan of the first and third shots there geraldc.


Got a last minute gig shooting for the local college. "Guest Chef Night".
Amazing work by the students, staff and guest chefs. Amazing facilities too!

I did an hour's photography (considering it was all on the hoof in a "working" kitchen) and walked away with a great set of images.
Here are just the highlights:

Nice work, Daniel.  Although most clients will opt for colour, I really do prefer this sort of fly-on-the-wall documentary work in black and white because I think it lets you concentrate on the expressions and emotions of the subjects so much better.

The only image I don't like is the last one - and that's because the blurred people in the foreground really don't work for me.  I don't know exactly why it is, but if you were seeing just the back of their heads, it would work a little better.  When I can see recognizable facial features, my eye gets drawn to them first if they're in the foreground and this detracts too much from the obvious subject (i.e. the two chefs deep in thought).

Were it me, I think I'd have taken a step to the right and used an out of focus object (like the tabletop or the heat lamps or whatever) rather than a person to frame the two guys in the background.  Their pose and expression is just too good to miss!
Title: Re: Have you been out with your camera today?
Post by: David Martin on February 06, 2014, 09:11:09 am
It would actually work fine without the people in the foreground.
Title: Re: Have you been out with your camera today?
Post by: clarion on February 06, 2014, 10:23:55 am
Agreed both.

Sometimes it's good to counterpoint a blurred figure with a sharp one as framing, but only when the blur renders them more abstract.

Great shots, though.  I'm right back to Lilliput.  The sort of photography I'd like to imagine myself doing back then, but using more modern styling.
Title: Re: Have you been out with your camera today?
Post by: Afasoas on February 06, 2014, 11:59:56 am
Thanks for the compliments.

I have of course supplied the pictures to the client in colour. I do love black and white though.
That last photo, yes.. out of focus people in foreground generally bad.  The two chefs were only in that spot for a fleeting second and I was there shooting the two students so it was a lucky grab.

It was a busy kitchen. None of the photos were setup.

I captures 148 images and selected 47 to process and pass onto the client. That strikes me as a fairly good hit rate for a job like this.

Yes, I'd say that was a decent proportion.  Either you've got a good eye, you struck very lucky, or you have a low threshold ;D

I'd like to think I was quite selective...  but it's all subjective. It's my favourite type of work so it helps I enjoyed it.
Must admit I wish I'd the ultra-wide lens with me to experiment with, but I'm experimenting with travelling a bit lighter to these types of assignments.

Fill flash up high on a flash bracket with laaarrrrggee bounce card.

It's a bit of a departure from my usual style, but seems to be working well.

Out waiting for the kids at Boys Brigade. They had booked the Uni football pitches - floodlit astroturf. So I took the long lens and the D610 - 1/200 @2.8 ISO 6400. Surprisingly good. Very pleased with the results which would have been just about publishable had I needed to. Certainly fine for web viewing as long as you don't push them to be too big. (The big lens is soft to f4)

Not today; it was on Saturday night - but I've only just got round to sorting them all out.  I was shooting random portraits of guests at a party hosted by Sam Valiant and the crew at the Limehouse Town Hall on the theme of 'Beauty is the Beast'.  Can you spot the forummer?

I think that effect (plus a bit of gamma jibbling) is a reasonable approximation of how I see the world compared to normal vision.  I really don't see the attraction.

But then, as a result of seeing the world like that, I'm strongly biased to high-contrast B&W.

I expect they'll be thankful for the B&W images a few years down the line.

There is a hole at the other end through which you can gain access.

Hodge Close:  the hole I was looking out of is top left-of-centre here (you can just make out the rusty rails above the water):

(http://static.panoramio.com/photos/large/84241570.jpg)

You get there either by fixing a rope and abseiling down the quarry wall, or by walking a couple of hundred yards north and descending into the neighbouring quarry, Parrock, on an easy path then along the quarry bottom to the mouth of the 'ole.  Guess which one I did  :)


Cathedral Cavern's even easier.  A quick pint in the Three Shires Inn, then over Slaters Bridge, turn left and right, and climb *up* to the entrance, you can't miss it...

Last time I was at Cathedral Cavern I was hanging upside down, with my back against the cliff face, at the top of the absail having left my feet behind when going over the edge. Seeing as how I was only wearing a waist harness and not the additional shoulder harness I was a little unsure what would happen next.  :o

The supervisor just looked down at me and told me to get my self sorted out as he really didn't want to lower me head first down 100' on the safety line.

Fortunately as I had been taking everyone elses photos no one was behind my camera to get any evidence of me looking stupid.  8)

Eek!

Also eek: accidentally reversing the controls on your drone so instead of flying towards you, it buggers off over Dartmoor. Worked it out in the end, but not before I got a good fright and a great raven's eye view of the tor:

Just fitted some new props, which arrived warped and off-balance (as expected, yay forums).  Straightened by clamping to a flat and applying hairdryer; balanced by putting each one on an axle between two glasses, and adding bits of electrical tape to the underside until both sides weigh the same.  I ain't shaving bits off anything!

New bearings too - and the old ones were super loose and flabby, so that'll do even more.  In secondhand bike terms, that's sorting the hubs, truing the wheels and putting new tyres on.  :thumbsup:

Is that an airbag?  What he needs is tiny propellers...  :thumbsup:

Did a test flight this morning and the jello is (mostly) gone! Yay (and phew).  Here 'tis: https://secure.flickr.com/photos/andygates/13196760195/in/photostream/

Jello remains where the quad labours while pitched forward (in gusts, mostly), but I can live with that.  Also, the Mobius shows stripy banding when facing into the sun (that I assume is just glare and could be shaded with a bit of dark bodgum like an SLR's truncated cone of shame?).  Overall, very happy, now off to find things worth filming on float days. :)

That's brilliant.  It looks like it should feel.

Now a question: I took my drone out for a constitutional flight, and while I was doing laps of the park a little girl came up and stared and said "please, can I have a go?" so [rapid risk assessment] I gave it some height and let her play.  She had a faceplant scab on her nose as well, and was clearly the Forthright and Adventurous Twin - the other twin hung back and said nothing.  I like Forthright and Adventurous kids, and the control scheme is easy: mash the screen and tilt the tablet.  I took a framegrab from the nose camera; the photo's cute enough, but I think everyone is reacting to it way in excess of its quality.  I think it's just a "we know Shrek Gates, therefore this is adorable."

For once...  yes!  (yesterday)

I shot 8 sheets of 5x4 film, 2 sheets per 'picture', at once doubling my total for the whole of 2013.
In amongst the mud on the shoreline of the Fal estuary creeks.  (N of Trelissick)

Reflections were quite bright, so i think I'll pick up some pyrocat type dev (Tanol maybe) and do one sheet for each view in this to rescue the highlights as well as the usual DDX or D76. This may be extraneous detail on a cycling forum  :facepalm:

I had an interview and a portrait sitting with the amazingly talented Ásgeir Trausti (http://asgeirmusic.com/) last night before his gig at the Union Chapel in Islington.  Shot this portrait with a bit of ringflash magic:

(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b187/vicechair/Asgeir5x7_zps0f07c7a0.jpg)

The gig was pretty much completely in the dark, so I was well glad of my new camera - it really is The Prince of Darkness.  This was at ISO 3200, 1/50 at f/1.4 on a 35mm lens:

(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b187/vicechair/DSC_3092_zpsfd617178.jpg~original)

And this also at ISO 3200 with a 200mm at f/2.8 and a totally hail-mary shutter speed of 1/40th.  Thank fuck for VR:

Charlotte, those pics are lovely.  It's really difficult to get good gig photos, and that environment sounds particularly difficult.

I should get down to the Union Chapel one of these days, Mark Kozelek played there not so long ago but it wasn't possible, what with w***.

Nope - ex large format photographer (and moderator of the large format forum on photo.net!) here.

There will always be highlight detail on bw negs - just keep burning!  The important thing to avoid is under exposing the shadows.  I am a great fan of evaluating the tone range of a scene with a Pentax spot meter and then placing the darkest area I want shadow detail on the lowest zone the film/dev combo will take.  I favour Fp4/id11 and this allows placing the darkest shadows on zone 2.

Went out with some friends doing "street photography" (yesterday). I'm not really a people person, so interpreted this loosely.

Err... it's a location shot. If my intent was to make it look like a studio shot I would have outlined it completely, cloned out the tree in the side window and removed the reflections. Possibly done something with the mud on the nearside front wheel too!

Well, with the white 'framing', they stand out badly.

Nevertheless Jakob's point is a good one. The tree reflections draw the eye and look ridiculous.  Sorry mate but if you're going to do 1998 local camera club competition style photoshopping you have to get the detail right!  :)

NME-tastic, Charlotte. Isn't gig photography a dark art?

In both senses of the word, most definitely.

I think the next time it gets that dark, I may use a speedlight on AF-assist only mode so I can nail down my focus a bit more predictably.  When you're shooting in light that low, you're forced to use some pretty thin DOF and getting it sharp is a bugger.

This works extremely well if your subject is fairly static. If it worked along side AF-C, that would be the icing on the cake, although seeing the projected cross hairs for a longer period might unnerve some people :D

Not out so much as into the kitchen. I've finally taken the plunge and decided to learn how to do flash lighting. First go at something more than bounce-flash, having read the first bits of strobist 102.

We spent a long weekend in Normandy, dividing our time between restaurants and the cemeteries of the "D-Day Coast".

The (many) cemeteries make for a sobering visit, one which all politicians should make before pressing the "Go to War button".

All taken on my new Canon EOS 100D with basic "kit" 18-55mm.

Well, the photos are all safely on the SD card. 

I'm not too sad about the bod, it is already 4 years old and has worked hard during that time, and has recently started misbehaving.  The lens is a sad loss, but it is a shockingly flimsy collection of bits of plastic snap-fitted together, so I was not surprised to see it dismantle itself on the floor. 

I'll check what sort of cover we have on our home contents policy - we do have some sort of accidental damage cover, and the excess may be bearable enough.

Lovely, Billplumtree!

Our own peonies are in a similar state, and maybe I should have got my arse outside when there was still dew about, instead of playing with various computing devices and preparing my exhibits for being exhibited.  These are not photographic exhibits, but garden railway models which will be on display in support of the Friends of Sierra Leone National Railway Museum, on 17th/18th May at Fawley Hill.

Note to self, get camera fired up tomorrow morning before I go to work at 7am!

Saw these on a Thursday cycle ride and headed back there this afternoon.

So hard to resist when you see Bluebells, literally, as far as you can see and you know they will be gone within a week or so.

They really do love a tumble-down woodland don't they?

I don't remember a year like this for them.

Nipped out yesterday and grabbed a few frames depicting Stafford "Mayor's Family Fun Day".

It's a celebration of both a new Mayor (Councillor Ray Sutherland) and 400 years of Mayordom.

I did a quick editorial shoot down on the Embankment with American musician Robert Francis on Friday.  Really nice guy - we ended up in the Cheshire Cheese for a pint afterwards before he had to dash off for a radio interview.

Whilst on a regular Tuesday evening walk with my Wife we managed to dodge the storm last night but got to see some worrying looking storm clouds gathering in the last of the evening sun.

Binley, Hampshire.

It did cross my mind that the Soviets had finally had enough of us criticising their Ukrainian policy and nuked the tiny hamlet of Binley.

At the Archery field last night.

Proving that disability is no object and that all styles are catered for, from absolutely modern to absolutely ancient.

(Notice the angle of aim difference between a modern Compound bow shooting Carbon arrows and a much more powerful Longbow shooting wooden staves with brass points.  I wouldn't like to choose between them, if I were the target, but you stand a chance of avoiding the wooden arrows....unless it's Agincourt and there are 6000 arrows a minute coming your way)

Nice colour saturation - works well with the tilt-shift effect.

I realise this isn't as technically wonderful as the other photos in this thread.  But it would be very, very difficult to get a SLR to this place, as it involves crawling through tight spaces and vertical drops of around 40 feet.  This was taken with an 'outdoor' camera, which can be used under water and is supposedly shock-proof.  I was so pleased with it, because this looked like a lovely picture that I really wanted to capture, and I suddently had the brainwave of sitting down (in a pool of water!) to get the right angle.

By "English" you mean it's not quite clear whether you will get sunburnt or soaked (or both) right?

That does make for a nice photo opportunity though...I seem to be having a run on worrying skies lately.

The area where I work is a mixture of hipster coffee shops, super trendy shops and restaurants and fancy loft apartments.
It is also the epicenter of homelessness and drug abuse in Canada, so there's this real mix of trendy vs really grungy.

Along with that, there's several alleyways that I really want to get some decent pictures of, but it's been hard finding the right light and also having them fairly empty, as the local zombies, crackheads often don't like getting their picture taken.
 This is the best one I've gotten so far. There's another more iconic looking one, but it's facing the other direction (so I have to catch it in the morning) and there's usually also a couple of dealers hanging around, so it's been tricky to get.

that bee looks fantastic!

did my smallest ever wedding yesterday, just bride, groom and 2 friends - who were all a fantastic laugh... 

They were at a local hotel in a tiny summerhouse with small windows and a thick hedge round 3/4 of it, so photos were a bit hit & miss, but here's one that worked:

Enjoy.

An interesting wheelchair adaption spotted on Lindisfarne. Very nice chap - it wasa commercial mod, and the motorised front part is completely removable. The company that did it is now bust.

Just snaps today. We went to Montrose Air Station. They have a fully working Link trainer (this is a valves and bellows driven bit of electromechanical wzardry from the 1950's that somehow is getting the electrons to keep going in the right way) An older lady who was there happened to mention that she had never flown a plane and would love to have a go, so they found the person who can, and she got her first ever flying lesson in a trainer.
Just before she got in she handed her camera over to get some video, so I swapped with my dad (who took the pic below, and hopefully she has a video with some usable bits of her really enjoying herself.

Memento mori -

We went pictish stone hunting yesterday. One of the stoping points was Eassie where there are some late C17/early C18 grave markers. In typical Scots style for the period they are marked with various moment moro.

(https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3839/14845119277_a0815119e1_z.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/oBP7Ln)Untitled (https://flic.kr/p/oBP7Ln) by davidmamartin (https://www.flickr.com/people/62034421@N00/), on Flickr

The crossed bones, the skull and the hourglass are recognisable, but what is the other symbol?

On another stone (or maybe the other end of the same one:

An angel on a scroll, and tools of the deceased's trade. Presumably a tailor with a pair of shears and an iron. And two discs.

More skulls and a faint inscription:

Have I been out today? Hell, yeah.  Love the Oly M4/3 to bits.Working with the 35mm (equiv) 2.8, I think it is as "street" as an old Leica. Without quite the same quality, OK, but I'm really pleased with the results out the camera (noting always that it has to be processed at least in camera to remove the shocking barrelling - be intersting to see what can be done with the RAW when I get home)

Walked round Strasbourg for 3 hours on Saturday with the X100, mostly shooting people. This was the first chance I've had to do a decent shoot with it, and in comparison with my DSLRs it was a delight - much faster to frame & shoot, and 90% of the time I wasn't noticed.   First time in years that I didn't have a sore back afterwards, too.  Did about 5 hours' post-processing at home, but I want to review them again at a few days' remove before publishing any.

Out with my camera in my old home town this morning and spotted some old bikes for sale.

Wanted to buy all of them but bought none.

The Orange Order shots were all (there are one or two more on my photostream) grabbed quickly and cropped later; I didn't particularly feel like hanging about too long - my market bags were definitely (defiantly?) the wrong colour-scheme (one lurid green, alongside one of those almost-Irish-tricoleur Crumpler Wonder Weenies from a few years back).

Not getting out as much as I would like to, (bloody work!) but there are updates

(https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-2zmR4hLCiJs/VBkSMhIA8bI/AAAAAAAAsIg/2PJJdeTaUno/s640/P9130635.JPG)

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-ysGJ_dX498I/VBkTXjxTSRI/AAAAAAAAsJY/tVIZklSHDNA/s640/P9140739.jpg)

For these shots I was using my 4/3 cheapie zoom (effective 100-400) and a 4/3->M4/3 adapter. I can confirm that autofocus is crap, so I switched to manual, which makes it very difficult to use and get the quality I would like (see the fishermen one, not that Nelly is much better). Even this cheapie lens is capable of better quality than this. There is one spot of amusement in this, with the adapter focus at infinity comes before the infinity stop, so I truly have a lens than can go to infinity and beyond.

There are some very nice dedicated M4/3 lenses. This could end up being expensive.

And then the headliners, Voala Co - Muare.  Possibly the best show ever, atached to a huge crane, one moment down amongst the crowd then pulled away into the night sky, all with a great live soundtrack, three days later and I'm still amazed by it.

Visited my Son in Clapham and we all made the trip to the Tower, to see the remembrance poppie display.

I imagine every Londoner has seen it already (if not, why not?)

But here it is for those not lucky enough to have seen it.

First you make some ceramic poppies, one for every British military fatality in WW1.

Secondly you stick it in the ground and repeat

and keep repeating

until it's just bloody breathtaking.

I'm so glad we made the effort to go and see it.  What a wonderful idea.

£25 each.

I've ordered one because it seems like a piece of history and because £25 doesn't seem bad to own a part of something like this.

Standing on the top of constitution hill in Aberystwyth holding my phone on top of a fence post because taking a proper camera would be silly.

I was shooting for Wikimedia last night up at one of the Science Museum's 'lates'.  They're getting involved in next month's evening event and we were making some publicity images and generally scoping out the venue:

As did my partner, hence the 10 year reunion of the Aberystwyth Student Scouts & Guides club of which she was founder.

I must say the roast dinner and chocolate cake in Y'Consti was marvellous even though the beer was rubbish, but retreating to Rummers solved that problem nicely.

I've got some lovely pictures on the DSLR of the sea front which I must process and share.

After my meeting by Regents Park I trawled across London (being warned that Tower Hill tube station was packed - it wasn't) then hearing a Tube worker just outside the station say "This reminds me of the Olympics!" I grabbed this one. I didn't fancy queueing up to loop round and get a bit closer.

I suppose it was half term, but I can't see it being less busy next week. After the 11th, they are going.

Stunning.

Iphones are fantastic in good light, at 300dpi this would print out really nicely at 10x8" - not surprised the market for small compact cameras is dying.

Back in mid-November (yeah, I'm a bit slow) I took my camera long for a walk through Epping Forest* - from Epping Station south through Wanstead Flats.
(https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-xaONsCq8wmw/VHEXx0vQcHI/AAAAAAAADA4/egWbQP5WttQ/s1024/DSC_0493.NEF.jpg)

The rest are here (https://picasaweb.google.com/Bebchenko/EppingForest2014111502?authkey=Gv1sRgCPebgvvPy5W0WQ).  Some came out well, others not so.  One of these days I'll learn how to use a camera properly.

* This was the route (http://ridewithgps.com/routes/6472872), more or less.  Some time soon I'll do walk with camera up to Epping, but following the River Roding, mostly.

Just spent the best part of a month in Hong Kong/Vietnam. Went to go back to do the Chinese wedding banquet, and to do the "wedding photos", then a couple of weeks exploring North Vietnam. Wedding photos in Asia are very very different. Basically you get an entire team of photographers, make up artists and lighting people, to follow you around for half a day, while they make you do cheesey photos. Absolutely loved it. Other half wanted to get photos in the parts of Hong Kong she grew up in, so lots of scouting locations, and then explaining to various restaurant owners, workshop owners, shop owners, how we'd like to shoot a couple of photos in their property, and everyone was very obliging. Won't see the finished results for months, so all we have are snaps from smart phones.

It was great fun, I think this sort of thing could catch on over here.

Think I've overdone the vignette but it hides the gantries and power cables on the viaduct.  The MG is Raven Black so I thought the mono worked.  Recently got the car back after a £5000 repair bill to replace the left side and rear suspension (other party insurance funded) and thought I should get a record before anybody else attacked it.

@T42 - I actually have a boot lid bike rack .  It works but doesn't do much for the lines of the car - especially when the hood is down.  Hardtop fitted at the moment.

Old snap of a previous MG with rack on boot.  Whistles a bit.

Daughters both played in Harrogate Competitive Music Festival this weekend. H, of forum road bike for kids renown, played clarinet and piano. Here she was at home and then in the warm up room before the grade 7/8 clarinet class (played the 5/6 class later).

I believe the blue thing is the top of the stairs, though I could be wrong and it just be some fancy bit of kit.
This is the overview. Must find out when the lift is due and ensure I can get the room and tripod to stop-motion it.

The weather has been very overcast and "meh" but I couldn't resist playing.

Longparish, Hampshire.  Last night in very poor light.  Image Stabilisation comes to the rescue (Canon 100D + Canon 10-18mm)

The other side is nearly ready, maybe another week of concreting.

Only two weeks till the big lift
I was surprised that they were fitting the glass sides already, I thought they would wait till after the lift but then realised that would mean working over a live railway so probably a no-no. They will have to complete the span before lifting.

A walk around Ibthorpe, Hampshire.

I've cycled this road a million times but rarely walk around here. It makes me want to jump on a bike and cycle down that road again.

This photo is proof positive that a RAW file has the photo in there....somewhere.  I'm always amazed at how much Dynamic Range there is in a RAW file and how easy it can be to drag it out.

Yes it generally means faffing about in post-prod for every image before you can show your Gran....but I generally faff about with all my photos anyway.

A different project. Trying to trace the drains and establish their condition on the railway path.

These pipes are cast iron and about 24" diameter. Stand in the stream, point the camera and torch in about the right direction because you cant get that low without getting seriously wet, and hope. Ant try it again.

David

I spent two years reviewing images of culverts, those images are better than a number of the professional ones I got from CCTV mounted on ROVs. Also those drains are in far better state than a number of the ones I saw.

Looks like the 24" CI is socket spigot pipework possibly cement lined and in good nick, the alignment may be a bit off straight but there is no major obstruction by tree roots or similar.

The square section either has a lot of water in it, is silted up or the watercourse steps down into the lead pipe beyond. Be careful if you seek to take the silt out of the bottom to check there is a firm invert to the culvert, it is not unknown for there to be just walls and a roof in such circumstances and you don't want to undercut the walls. Is there any sign of a manhole at the change of construction which would be normal?
Title: Re: Have you been out with your camera today?
Post by: David Martin on April 26, 2015, 11:23:49 pm
This pipe was built in 1868. Specifications are 'interesting' and give the dimensions and that it is to be good sound castings. I don't think it is cement lined. There is certainly no evidence of that and the stone culvert is dry stone work. Cast Iron hadn't been in operation long enough to be worried about such things. it is bell and socket construction.

The culvert is stone floored, there is no manhole or any kind of inspection chamber. I am planning to drop a gopro[1] on a string down it. The ends are about 140m apart and may well have been disrupted by tree roots at some point. An old skateboard may come in useful.

The difficult bits will be out of sight. We do have a contractor excavating at points to establish the level of the pipes. The more interesting one is further up which is earthenware and about 12" of similar vintage.  We have at least one break in that pipe, poor flow and various seepage points. We don't know where the start is and have a suspicion as to the end. It may run for at least 450m (and definitely 300m)


[1] or a several of similar models of action camera.

A squirrel that found the bird feeder empty:

Stand in the stream, point the camera and torch in about the right direction because you cant get that low without getting seriously wet, and hope.

That requirement is crying out for a wireless smartphone control app for your camera, so you can see the image remotely from the camera.  Lumix LX100, for instance, can do this - I'm sure there are other options.

Not on a D80 there aren't. I could do live view on the D610 but didn't have that one with me. A short tripod and the right-angle viewer would have helped too. As it was, digital is quite forgiving so take loads and hope, then repeat till it works, whilst trying to not drop the camera in the stream in a hailstorm.

Having bought a couple of 2l bottles of cheap fizz on the way home, I now have the makings of a boat in which to put an action camera and a torch. With the aid of a long piece of string I shall investigate the pipes further.

@Lee: The clouds we had on Sunday:

(http://www.pbase.com/image/159890445.jpg)

We had just dropped from 720 metres to 420 over 9 km, through hammering rain on a twisty road with the cars going past like motor launches.

Not the weather for a decent camera.

Great fun though.

Taken last night at the end of my commute to the station:

The colours looked a lot deeper/natural on my phone's screen. Looking it on the computer it seems to be kind of faded. I guess there wasn't quite enough ambient light for the phone's liking.

This is my first go at "Focus-Stacking" in Photoshop.  It's 4 images, from a tripod, each focussed at a different distance, from a few inches to infinity.  Photoshop then merges the images and blends the focus points to give a huge depth of field.  Would be useful for macro I think (where DoF is usually tiny).

So anyway... I went for a walk after dinner with my Wife.  Our route involves heading up a hill at St Mary Bourne, Hampshire, where you get huge uninterrupted views of the area.

There was lots of wind, lots of rain for a few minutes and then we realised we'd escaped a lot worse by being at the edge of this beauty as it passed over.

Alfred, king of Wessex (a place that doesn't exist and yet is mentioned on about a third of company names in the area.  Wessex FM for example.  I may be wrong but I think they only had Long-Wave in the 9th century).

Your work has improved beyond measure Lee - obviously post processed but done very well.  The focus stacking shot and flowers moving in the wind are excellent.  All very enjoyable though.

Jaded love the Badders shots, cracking one of Toddy first up!  I'm hoping to be riding there next year..

Not today, but I was working last week with an incredibly talented young classical pianist called Cyrill (http://www.cyrillibrahim.com/).  We did some good stuff in the studio, but I’m always drawn to location portraiture and couldn’t resist putting him in a grungy alleyway in his white tie and tails.

Thanks Mike!  You must come down to the studio and play one day.  The pack behind the model is pretty much maxed out with a big, efficient reflector fitted.  The one in front of him is turned down to about 1/4 of maximum, through a 100cm square softbox.  Lightroom tells me that my zoom was at 36mm and the camera was on ISO200, f/8 and 1/250th.  it was actually quite a bright day, but I pulled the sky down a bit in post to make it look more overcast and darker than it was.

Cheers Tewdric

The flowers moving in the wind goes against my natural urge to have everything pin-sharp, so it's a case of forcing myself to set a shutter speed below 1/15th and see what happens.

I'm time-constrained (by cycling, so I don't mind) so I don't have time to really play.

Every time I get a couple of hours to devote to playing with a new technique (Focus Stacking and exposure bracketing for example) I get some really rewarding results. 
Once I get PBP done I'll spend more time experimenting.

As for post-production, yes, everything is tweaked.  I'm not sure I ever posted a photo without tweaking something.

Since I got the Canon DLSR I use a Canon Raw editor to squeeze a photo from whatever I took.  I don't see that as cheating though, I see it as making it look like it felt at the time.

No camera can capture what you (think you) saw and mostly it still isn't as good as being there.

RAW absolutely rules though.  It took me a while to realise the potential but I regret not using it by default when I first got the Canon.  I have some favourite images that I could have "squeezed" a whole lot more out of.

I may very well be incorrect, but I don't call that bokeh.  That, to me, is "just" seriously out of focus background, resulting in nicely soft shapes which don't distract from the image, and actually support the main image.  You can call it bokeh if you like, though  ;D ;D

I'm gonna have to go full frame, and get some large aperture lenses....

It's now held together with rubber bands and lives it's life in the sweaty rear pocket of a cycling jersey but it's documented much of my cycling over the previous 5 years.

I went out to photograph a field of poppies but the farmer seems to have mowed them all down.

On my way back I noticed the sun was just breaking through an otherwise cloudy sky and bagged a few photos.  Ideally I'd have gone into the field but I couldn't spot a gap in the barbed wire so I took the wimps option and zoomed in instead.

Fullerton, Hampshire. Looking towards Andover.

I shoot everything in Canon RAW now (sometimes RAW + JPEG). Apart from slowing down the frames/sec rate there's no reason not to shoot in RAW, you just lose too much potential if you don't.

Then I tweaked everything in Camera Raw app (Canon supplied) then I tweaked it a bit more as a Photoshop Jpeg.

Original (pretty "Meh" isn't it?).

Someone is bound to say that it's cheating HOWEVER ........

1) I don't care

2) Cameras just can't capture what the human eye sees.  It's technically impossible.  All you can do is use the available tools to try to recreate what it felt like.

Trust me the actual scene I saw was a lot less "Meh" than the resultant original image and a lot more "Wow" like the final "cheating" version.

3) Every classic photo you ever saw, by any of the greats, was "shopped", either digitally or using darkroom techniques, to some extent.

You could probably design a camera to capture what the human eye sees, but the pictures would be fairly rubbish.  It's all in the processing.

Shot in the studio last week - I've been busy recently and finally catching up with editing some personal work this weekend:

Shot with a lovely crisp 135mm portrait lens and a stonking great big Elinchrom Octa for some seriously gorgeous beauty light  :D

Very nice but, try as I might, I just can't seem to spot her telephone number in the image !!!!

Very "Jessie J".

This is Cleebourg. It sits in the middle of vineyards that stretch a couple of km up the road.  Used to belong to the Swedish crown.

Nasty showers all day, but not where I was.

Now you mention it it does look like something from "Home Alone" or the "Road Runner" cartoons.

Testing out my new Canon S120 "pocket camera".  I got it free 'coz of my Tesco Clubcard voucher habit.

It possibly as good a pocket camera as I'l lever need, very impressed with it.

However despite all it's features I'll probably always have it set to RAW with Aperture Priority and 3-shot exposure bracketing.
That basically guarantees that the image is in there somewhere.

First test shots on a walk this evening.

I really, really, like this.

Good eye Jaded.

As I stare at it I half expect to see someone walk into the room holding a cuppa.

Actually I haven't stared at a photo for as long as I stared at this for quite a while.

I'd try to take a similar photo myself but you seem to have found the world's most perfectly aligned room.

To J36 auction mart (http://nwauctions.co.uk/), just up the road from me.  There was a sale of Murthwaite fell ponies, a renowned semi-wild breed from the Howgills.  I'm not remotely horsey - in fact I'm allergic to 'em, I nearly died once when I slept unknowingly on a horsehair sofa, but I don't hold that against them, and these were just gorgeous.

Out with the camera, no. Standing on a chair in the kitchen by the open window, though:

Our Buddleia used to be so full of bees and butterflies at this time of year that it sounded like an engine-room. Not any more. We've had a handful of butterflies this year and precious few bees. This is the first swallowtail for a couple of years.

I have been in with it - using a computer webcam, a green screen and making short explanatory videos for the students.

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CMOGvGZWUAE9GL1.jpg)

That is a full width colorama green roll, I really could do with a simple pop-up as we will be using this as a key technique for other staff to use too.

I use Open Broadcaster which is free and well specced for what we do with it. Typically just a single take (after a rehearsal take) and no editing required.

I shot a roll of Fuji Neopan Acros in the Nikon FM2n. I'll dunk it and scan some photos as soon as I get my hands on some fresh Rodinal.  I remembered what I like about film; no chimping, you have to get it right and know you've got it right but the results still sometimes surprise you, especially in black-and-white where (unless you're a dog*) what you get is not what you see through the viewfinder.

Despite my hopeless eyes, using a camera is not actually a problem and is actually easier than seeing IRL because the viewfinder shows a virtual image with no real glare.

I miss mono CRT viewfinders (hey, it may not be film, but it was generally analogue).  The contrast was outstanding.  I could spot things through those that I'd miss in colour.

I despise ditigal compacts without an optical viewfinder (these have all but died out).  I can't see the screen to compose in sunlight.  If chimping looks naff, then scurrying into the shade of the nearest tree or outhouse to chimp is in quite another league.

It is a wonderful idea.  Any idea what's planned for the poppies afterwards?

£25 each.

I've ordered one because it seems like a piece of history and because £25 doesn't seem bad to own a part of something like this.

Finally got round to doing something with it.

There were loads of these fascinating wee things, in one or two areas of the huge windswept beach.  My theory (which is mine) is that the shell shelters the sand behind and below it from the wind, and gradually forms its own sandy plinth.

My theory (which is mine) is that the shell shelters the sand behind and below it from the wind, and gradually forms its own sandy plinth.
I think the official theory is that sand or sandstone carrying a load is more resistant to erosion than that which isn't. The grains are less likely to be knocked off by a wind-blown grain if they are being squeezed by the grains above and below.
In the larger case, it's how you get this sort of thing...

These places fascinate me.  Old croft houses, just left when the owner (possibly with no family) dies.  They're not generally locked up, the door might be tied with string to keep the sheep out;  and, untended, they just gradually decay.  More here (https://flic.kr/s/aHskkv7fRv), and more to come...

Another day, another croft.  Apologies for hogging the thread - this is the last one, and I think it bears a few pics

AIUI, this hasn't just happened to have been left like this.  It's a memorial to the woman who lived here, 20 years ago.  No-one wanted to take the croft on, so they left it in this final deliberate arrangement, which would have been pretty much how it was anyway when she lived there, and tied the door shut.

Reminds me a lot of The Castle pub in Lancaster.  I stayed there on my LEJoG ride for a night.  £10 a night and I still feel ripped off 13 years later.

Was out allegedly taking pics of insulation works to park homes at 0730 today, so availed myself of a few sunrise over the sea at Stokes Bay, type pics.  Strange how golden early morning light and a few palm/yucca/whatever tropical trees can do for something as prosaic as the Diving Museum on a cold and blustery morning.

I must actually get around to posting a few pics here again...

You might think jigsaw puzzles are a bit OT, but supposing I told you can make jigsaw puzzles out of your own photos?

http://us.mensa.org/play/games/games/universal-jigsaw/

It certainly gives a different perspective in (background) detail and subtle gradations in colour/shade, while abstract shots pose a greater challenge.

Not that I want to distract any of you from getting out there taking wonderful photographs in all conditions...

Nice set-up.

I just watched a vid of a pro shooting a bottle and they made a fake window by taping a black grid, in gaffer tape, on one of the soft-boxes.  Gave a really nice. convincing, effect in the reflection.

Shooting shiny things is *hard*.  Ideally, I could have been using tracing paper rather than studio rolls for my double diffusion material as I had to pump a lot of watt-seconds through there to get the effect I needed.  Oddly, I think it looks best when the left and right side highlights aren't exactly symmetrical, hence the RHS softbox being an extra foot away.

The above shot took me about a day to get really right.  That involved reading some articles, watching some videos, doing a *lot* of buggering about and re-jigging lighting.  Once it was nearing done, I nipped round the corder to Tesco for some glycerin and a squirty bottle (top tip: a glycerin/water mix squirted on a glass bottle looks exactly like it's just come out of the fridge and is covered in beads of condensation).

So much for daylight pics.  Wild and wet today, so I sought refuge in disused railway tunnels, as you do.  The Saltburn-Whitby line closed in 1958, but a couple of the tunnels still remain.  Access strictly forbidden, but I came across these pics of the Kettlewell & Sandside tunnels:

Are you predicting a preset manual focus point there, or letting the camera autofocus it?

I actually got outdoors for the first time with the Sony A7Rii today, as it wasn't pissing with rain (I'll re-master posting pics again soon).  I've only got one native lens for it at the moment, as the 25mm Batis is on back order, so took it out with the "cheapie" Sony 28-70 lightweight plastic-y zoom.  I've got quite a bit of learning to do on poking the relevant custom buttons first time when changing focus mode or focus area, but managed to track focus on cars coming towards me at around 30mph in a burst of 5fps shooting,and then was looking the other way when a gaggle of silent cyclists came by  :facepalm: 

42.4 megapixels is a lot, innit?  Its high ISO noise performance is in a different league to my Sony A77 (APS-C), and pissing about indoors at night got me perfectly usable images handheld at loony ISOs such as 56,000 odd, and the image stabilisation is even better then the A77, some 1/5 second shots handheld were fine.  Looking at them in Lightroom zoomed in so the image would be several feet across shows perfectly recoverable noise at these silly ISOs, so I expect to do fine at the regency dancing, where I've often had to resort to 3200 ISO, and I'll have the added help of the f2 25mm Batis when that shows up, thus giving me another stop to play with over my previous f2.8 max aperture zoom, and of course the Batis will be happier at that aperture, than a mid-price Sigma zoom.  My chances of resisting the 85mm Batis are not good.  ;D ;D

The  APS-C A77 with the Sigma f2.8-4 17-70 zoom weighs over 1400 grams, the full frame A7Rii with the 28-70 f3.5-5.6 zoom weighs 995 grams.  Hmm.

I tried both, and tried all the different AF settings on the cam.  Telefoto seemed to work best with autofocus, wides with manual.  Great fun.

OK it wasn't today, it was 9 years ago. But I was having a mooch through my archives came across these and thought it would be nice to share.

Back in May 2007 I was asked to create a couple of display boards for a local cycling group, showing Redbridge cycling, these were the result. Looking again after all this time I'm quite pleased with the range of different cycling it shows. Clicky through IYCBA for full size

Went out yesterday, and somewhere along the way dropped my lens cap. I put it in my pocket, but I didnt' zip it up. A replacement from Panasonic will be just under a fiver. Can't use a generic lens cap as it's a plug that fits into the lens hood. Must remember to put things away properly from now on.

I see you used ISO 1600 / 25sec / f/4.5

Are those tried and tested settings?  I'd like to get some night sky photos myself.
Title: Re: Have you been out with your camera today?
Post by: David Martin on March 14, 2016, 12:25:47 pm
It does depend on the camera and lens. The ISO is about as fast as I would like, given the noise that will creep in. The lens is 24mm with a max aperture of 3.5 so I always stop down a fraction.. Then the time is what the time does. If I wanted star trails, I'd use a lower ISO to minimise the noise, but the exposure would be longer.

And some from the inside! Taken in our level 3 organic chemistry lab - I love the henna-style decorations on the fume hood. Apologies for the FB link, I'll stick them on Flickr in due course.

Good to see that hexagons, colourless liquids and insoluble brown gunk are well represented...

(I never grokked organic chemistry, so spent most of my time weighing things and doing the washing up for a competent lab partner.)

I like the scrawling on the fume hood windows. Much better than sticking random bits of paper on, and more photogenic.

Since then we have built things and knocked things down so I went up the hill tonight to shoot it again. I should have probably got the same angle but I took a wider view:

My wife and older daughter with a Canon FD 50/1.8 on the Fuji XP2

Ooh!  You got an X-Pro2???!  What do you think of it?

:) So far I think it's brilliant. I've not had a Fuji before, but sold my GX7 based kit because I didn't 'bond' with it. My background is rangefinders these days, with a 1Ds3 and a couple of dslrs in the past.

I like it because it's the 'right' size and weight, has a great viewfinder and is fast. It feels like an agile camera - like my Zeiss Ikon with af and 8fps. Controls are good too, provided you like trad. It's a joy to use, being intuitive, fast and direct. The evf or the 'patch' both work well for focusing my old FD lenses (M lenses work too, but I've got bodies that take them directly), although the evf is much better if you're working close due to parallax. I've got 50/1.8, 55/1.2 and85/1.8 fd lenses that are coming out of retirement to pair with the wider end XF lenses.

Funny thing is, I nearly bought an XP1 as they're so cheap now, but decided to stump up for the XP2. I thought of it as a bike camera, to avoid rattling the rf mechanisms of my others to pieces or out of alignment, but it's become a daily carry and will probably go on holiday with me in the summer (when I have limited luggage capacity). Around town today I took the 18 lens, another day it might be the 35. All work well so far, although the 35/2 is the pick of the bunch from a useage perspective - very fast and almost silent.

Thanks for that Mike, interesting stuff.  I got an X-Pro1 to replace my GX7 for exactly the same reason.  Love the trad controls, but the slowness and iffy focussing not so much  - hence my curiosity about the 2.

Should add that I'm impressed with the files robustness. This was exposed at 1600 iso - 1 stop in camera, pushed 1.5 stops plus 55 shadow in LR with only very minor noise reduction - I tend to prefer noise. I think this is equivalent to just over 3.5 stops push in the shadows from iso1600. Only made a small print for the family album, but it looks very nice.

We walked up from Selside to Ingleton, the advantage of going by coach is that you can do one-way walks. That takes you up the quieter ridge past Alum Pot. Difficult conditions to get the exposure right, so I just set the Panasonic LX100 to Intelligent Auto.

I love the backlighting that gives her a silver lining!

I'd like to say I chose my spot because of the back-lighting, and waited for her to come into frame, so I could capture the shadow perfectly in the window frame, BUT I just had a few seconds before it was my turn to ride the track again so I put my trusty compact camera on 1/400, Auto ISO, and kept my finger pressed as she came round the track.

The lighting in the Velodrome, apart from that one spot, at that time of day, with the morning sun out, was absolutely dismal for photos.

I only spotted that it was a great place to light someone when I opened the image in Photoshop at home.

Such is life.

If you Do go to Calshot, in April, at 10am, when the sun is out on a beautiful morning, then you can see the spot you should tell your friends to ride though on the far left.. (Shoot in RAW of course).

My own efforts yesterday consisted of hanging out of an upstairs window during a lull in the hammering rain and popping off at the cherry tree:

You do indeed, I have fond memories of St Fillans.  Some lovely views, and just up the road a bit I saw my first ever osprey, fishing.  Only had a Fuji bridge camera back then, but still got some reasonable shots of the osprey, and some lovely loch and mountain/hillside views.

Cheers Mike.

All taken on the fuji 100-400 with the 1.4 tc. This thing is brilliant, all shots were hand held. The ois is very, very good.

I haven't really used it since I bought it so I sneaked it out yesterday. I was working by Cannock Chase so had an hour with it. Pity it rained and blew a gale, it was really too dark in places at f8 under the trees, hence the high iso on some shots.

Certainly looks good - and a lot of reach too.

I use a canon / on my xp2 and it seems to balance well, but the 100-400 could be another kettle of fish. The grip changes the feel altogether and is really only for bigger lenses the Canon in my view. It does have an arca swiss 'plate' built in though and is cheaper than an rrs L bracket.

I'll watch for more.

I'll be testing it today, there's an xp2 being delivered between 1-2pm :o

I'll see what it's like without any grip, the 100-400 with the 1.4tc is all held on the lens anyway. As long as I can hold the body and turn the zoom ring with ease I won't bother with any grips. The lens foot is there if I ever need a tripod mount.

This lens is that good it's never been on a tripod, that's incredible when I look at some of the shutter speeds I've used for a lens over 500mm.

it feels better than my xp1s, the buttons are in the right place this time on the rear. The grip is larger, the tripod mount is centred, loads of focus points adjustable with a joystick, twin cards, excellent evf and faster.

Shame. You'll only grow to like it more. It's a brilliantly resolved camera and, although I've never used an XP1, I suspect you'll find the higher resolution and higher dynamic range from the sensor very nice. Mine has been quite a radical influence.

Took it to work today, couldn't resist.


This is a snap I took from the side of the road whilst sitting in my van. Shot at 560mm and a pretty big crop in overcast light. I'm impressed, still want a few hours playing though.

The only thing I didn't like, I put the shutter dial on T and used the command dial to control the shutter. My fat fingers kept moving the dial :facepalm:

Visit to the new school (they demolished the old one and built a brand new school) that my son will be heading to fromteh decant in August.

Very imaginative designs in there, including the assembly hall.

A series of steps so that whilst you may be sat at the back you can see and can't hide! Fully kitted tech suite (even a forge!) and everything is top notch. The student kitchen for those studying hospitality in S5/6

Better specced than many places they may go on to work in.

I'm hoping that the kids have even just a vague sense of how good the facilities are.

We had a forge at my school, years ago. My daughter has a laser cutter.

I quite like the forge, even though I could do more with the cutter.

Lovely tones in there.

You know, since I discovered the benefits of shooting RAW, I find it heartbreaking to look at some of my older, favourite, jpegs and realise what I lost out on by not utilising my camera's RAW function. (Assuming it's RAW of course, I guess you could have used HDR but the tones look too rich).
Title: Re: Have you been out with your camera today?
Post by: billplumtree on June 14, 2016, 08:11:08 pm
Thanks Lee.  It isn't HDR, no - I go for minimal post-processing.  I spend my entire working day in front of a computer, and the last thing I want to do with my leisure time is spend it likewise.

It is RAW though, since there was just too much distance between the direct sunlight on the bed and the suitcases in the shadows to get away with the jpeg.  I do, however, use jpeg's whenever I can, as I've found Fuji really do deserve their legendary status:  it always takes me quite some effort to achieve summat in Lightroom from the raw that I feel is as good as the jpeg straight out of camera, and I only do it in extreme cases like this one.

Have been in Austria for a week.  The D610 is horribly bulky (I believe it's actually smaller than a D750) but it works well enough.

Beer was a theme.

Although no-one got pissed as one of these, found living quite happily in the outdoor pool (not chlorinated but constantly replenished by a mountain stream...it's rather bracing, even on a hot day)

(https://c8.staticflickr.com/8/7318/27604593263_6de08aedc6_k.jpg)

Even on fully automatic the D610 can't stop SO cutting my feet off but, apart from that, I liked this photo.

Today is what the English call "Bastille Day" and we call the 14th of July, so there was a parade through Preuschdorf last night. The guys up front with the blazing torches are, of course, the Fire Brigade, comme il se doit**. The LED-lit phalanx behind them is the town band, the lights for their sheet music being so blinding that they can't see anything else and walk in fear of potholes.  The ironic thing is that all bands throughout France play exactly the same tunes every year so they don't need the music.

Cycled at midnight from Andover, Hampshire, to the 05:35 Ferry at Lymington.  Cycled from Yarmouth, Isle of Wight, to the 08:00 Fishbourne ferry to Portsmouth.  From Portsmouth I cycled home.  Arrived back home just after lunch.  Had some nice grub and a few beers on the journey and most people back home hadn't really done much yet.

Just like last year the light at Lymington Harbour, at around 5am, is sensational.

Having a play with adapted lenses. This one was taken with an Olympus 50mm/f1.8 on my Panasonic G6. It meters well in aperture priority mode and focus peaking means it's quick and easy to get a sharp image.

Agreed.  Stunning.

My attempts at Star photography look rather pathetic by comparison. 
I was on holiday in a perfect location in France but frustrated with (small) max aperture and (by modern standards) lack of good high ISO quality.

This is looking out from the cottage we rented near Perigueux in France.
It was a fabulous way to spend 2 weeks.  Nice food and wine by day and reclining in front of our "Wide Screen Space TV" every evening

This one didn't knock out the power but this one BELOW did (turn up the volume on your PC before playing this...it may give you an indication of how close it was to us... and the mains power).

That will be thunder and lightning then (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bRGqw1aUFtI) <<<< Clicky for video

Not bad, that.  About a month after we moved to Paris we lived on the top floor of a block of flats that was struck. The bang was followed an instant later by the crash of the missus dropping a set of wedding-prezzy crockery that we detested.  Quick thinker, the missus.

Also from our holidays was this.  Getting closer and closer to our cottage I suddenly started getting a bit nervous about being up on a hill, holding a metal tripod.


This one didn't knock out the power but this one BELOW did (turn up the volume on your PC before playing this...it may give you an indication of how close it was to us... and the mains power).

Eeek!  That was quite close enough, thanks.  Many years ago, I saw lightning hit about 10 metres from where I was, and I fell over backwards in shock, but I was indoors, looking out the window at the time...

Lucky.  Chum of mine nearly got struck while watching a storm from a couple of km off.  He was holding up a steel-shafted brolly, and his GF noticed a blue glow growing up out of the spike. He got rid, but his arm tingled for a couple of days afterwards.

Thanks :)

I'm not too good on identifying - my favourite is the shouting birds, what are they? I'm pretty sure the three are Eider Ducks? Not sure about the others! (apart from the Typhoon!)

The shouting birds are Skuas, but I only know because I showed your pictures to a friend who's an excellent birdspotter.

Apparently Jaded's are Great Skuas - also known as Bonxies.  It's gaelic.  They get a bit nasty if you get too close to their nests.

I just love this one.  If I'd taken that, I'd have a dirty great print of it on the wall.  I keep trying similar ones with cat noses, I think getting the 85/1.8 has helped the chances of getting it right, as has my improving knowledge of getting the best out of the A7Rii's complex focusing modes.  Cats being their usual awkward selves doesn't help, though.

They are digging up the orad to reline one of the water mains (as is typical here, there are several down the road and the paperwork describing which house is connected to which one is somewhat ancient and lacks accuracy)

Why? This is a 5 inch main, and a good part after 100 years in the ground. The more scaly parts are very much sclerosed. They are scraping out the scale and painting the inside with epoxy to preserve it for longer.
