out walking I stalked depth of field opportunities. No other redeeming features of this and the next photo:

What is it about most digital cameras that gives more depth of field than a similar shot on 35 mm format film?

How do you like the 828?

I've got the 707 and like it a lot and have really looked at the 828 to see how Sony is progressing.

May 18, 2004, 12:50 PM
I had the 717 before i got my 828.

I love my 828, start up time is amazing. The manual zoom control is great.
The picture quality is a little improved from the 717. Overall I am 100% pleased with it.

the single flower and the toads were shot from 1"-2" away with an amazing macro lens.

those toads must be havin' some crazy sex. they were completely zoned out.

Yea, a lot of the time one could point the finger at the photographer. I got unexpected results with several digitals (greater than expected depth of field) and here's the reason:

http://wrotniak.net/photo/dof/

www.megapixel.net/html/articles/article-dof.html

Interesting to learn that depth of field is not an inherent property of the optics of the lens.

That fleshy red thing in the nose corner of the eye is the caruncle, a normal feature. Sometimes small hairs grow in it, and generally stay soft and harmless.

The flower was from a friend's garden. The kitten is only 8 weeks old and small enough to fit in my hands. And the mirror shot was somewhere in Louisiana or Arkansas on my way to New Orleans.

Thank you. The cat I'm not sure about his type, I was staying at a relatives house and woke up to him playing on my head. I wish I could have taken him home.

G4scott,
WOW, that is absolutely amazing. How did you know where to look for those to shoot? Did you use a tripod?

G4scott
Jun 27, 2004, 11:40 AM
For the frog eggs, there's a trick that photographers use. My dad actually found the eggs stuck to a stick in a pond, so he picked them up, and put them in a plastic bag with water, and we put the eggs in an aquarium, where we got these pictures. And then, after we got the pictures, we took the eggs back to the pond.

To photograph them, we used a tripod with a special macro adjustment head, and 2 flashes: one from above, and another from the front and to the side, as to not create a glare on the glass.

When I first saw the pictures, I thought it looked like something computer generated...

Apparently, some of the staff photogs (if we call 'em that) use DISPOSABLES! For a print mag! Ouch!

I finally figured out why I get called so much. :) BUT it's limited my time to post, and more importantly, to shoot for myself.

Two more (again slightly abstract - i just needed to shoot something and its pretty overcast outside right now) :rolleyes:

Yahooz - i like all three, but especially the shot of the woman & ball of wool: it looks very professional and 'real', i.e. not too staged.
The microphone shot is really good too - the focus really brings the eye in to the centre of the picture.
I think the shot of the performers is creative, but maybe there's a little too much of the person in the foreground and not a clear enough sight through to the performer in focus? - but i do like the idea very much!

My first post to a photography thread, so I'm not sure if I've gone about it the right way... Anyway - it's just an experimental shot taken with my fairly new IXUS 400.

Wow, it's time someone else has even a similar camera to mine, much less the same one (well yours says IXUS 400 and mine says S400, though IXUS sounds cooler, they're the same). I have, or at least had, a picture somewhat similar to that. :)

So what's be going on people? I somehow lost communication with the boards here (probably another blackout with email from macrumors or something) when we switched to a new thread. I recently got my display issue fixed and didn't have a backup since there was no reason for them to even turn on my computer except to see that the display was working and the audio was fixed....instead they "restored" my computer and I lost pretty much all of my favorite recent pictures...oh, and they left me back in the stone age with 10.3.2....luckily I went to my friends house (they finally began putting up cable at my house so I should have broadband in a few weeks, finally) and was able to download like 300+ megs of updates! You know what's odd? 10.3.2 is slower on an empty hard drive than 10.3.4 was with my drive full of files!

My business has been coming along. We finally finished writing a lot of our code, and we finally have a client. A few more and I'm quitting Target for good. They keep working me too much to get to work on my business so I'm going to take a week or two of vacation before school starts again in the fall so I can get my crap together and get as far from that place as possible! Anyway, I'm off to code some website designs and what have you (luckily I still have some pictures I need on CD and they've finished copying to my drive now).

Oh guess what else they did at apple? They made my user's short name and name apple, so now I have to reformat again so that it doesn't say apple's computer on my start up...that's like the last straw! Anyway, hopefully I'll be around. See you guys later...

Thanks for your kind words Orbital! The one of the woman was not staged at all :D She was setting up her 'table' for the kid activity later in the afternoon, and she continued as i took 20 different perspectives :cool:

the shot of the woman clutching the microphone was just an abstract shot, but I thought it was cool -- glad someone else likes it :D

as for the performer shot, well, i respectfully disagree ;) I feel there is a nice balance between foreground performer and the bemused look of the performer [in focus part of shot].

thanks for looking and commenting.

i love that shot

Thanks. That's shot with a 35mm f2.0 lens. Which on my D100 is a 50mm and has a pretty close focus ability and WAFER THIN dof. So I love the ability to shoot and get nice blurry backgrounds, especially because the bokeh (out of focus area) is soooo smooth on it. ;)

moxie,

I really love that flower shot, and I too love the way that lens blurs the background....it's completely different to the way my 50mm 1.8 blurs on my AE-1....I like the effect of yours there but on complicated backgrounds I prefer the way my 50mm blurs....it's hard to explain, I'll have to either scan a shot or take a picture of it with my S400 (which is more likely since I'd have to buy a new cable for my scanner since it isn't USB, oh and it's in a closet :)).

Anyway, that would be perfect for the site I'm designing to show a client (a florist) to hopefully get him to get a site to go along with the data system we're working on for him...he seemed interested when we told him we did sites too, and since none of his sites come up when you go to them, I think I have a pretty good chance, lol.

Thanks. alot was due to my use of a 35mm f2.0 which gives the same FOV as a 35 but acts like a 50 due to the sensor crop on my DSLR.

If you need any floral shots for that website, lemme know. I'll hook you up with some at a good price.

The almost finished cover. It'll be cropped from the top a bit, and the univeristy logo and name will be added to either the top of bottom (likely top) in 14 or 15 point reverse text over a rich black background.

Here's the cover shot I did for the previous brochure (We're on this art & crafts/dream campaign. I didn't come up with it. It is what it is, and I take the best pics I can to illustrate.)

This is of a native American dreamcatcher.

Jul 20, 2004, 08:52 AM
And the finished cover, minus the university branding (that's put on in Quark in another department.)

EDIT: just noticed this is NOT the finished cover, but the concept piece. I fixed the legibility of the "nothing happen unless first a" part and worked further with the effects on the text. The sweetgrass cover uses the same text effects (slightly different color) as what I eventually came up with for the dreamcatcher. But who really cares.

superninjagoat
Jul 20, 2004, 09:09 AM
While shooting the dreamcatcher, I happened across this pic. I had an off-camera flash up all the way for a backlit, bounce-flash effect with a light amber gel. I had the camera and flash in one hand and was putting the gel on when the flash pushed the shutter button.

Damn that's a bright flash.

But the pic that resulted was cool. We used it for the back cover at about a 50 percent opacity over an earth-tone color we picked up from the front photo. Worked nicely.

Serendipity’s cool

Camera data's the same as for the dreamcather pic.

If I do, I'll definitely get in touch with you! I think I have what I need right now, but I may be doing more sites in the future for florists. Right now, I'm pretty much making a teaser so I can't really spend money not knowing whether or not I'll be getting money. Besides, I like to showcase my own stuff, it's a thing I have. :) However, your shots are some of the very few I'd actually use without them being mine! (It's hard to tell, but that's a comment with high praise :D) The only thing I don't have qualms about is portrait photography, because it's just easier to get stock from someone else :) Besides, how am I going to have fun myself? :D

The answer to that is I won't, since you have such nice stock, and I like to compare and contrast!

i haven't really tried my s5000 out to much yet... and i think its more of my slight lack of picture taking ability... im a good am pic taker but i like to be perfect at everything... just pedantic i suppose.. i would like to have sharp and great color pics..i might start using a polarizing filter when shooting outside on a nice day... i think it tends to make the colors more vibrant

i love the cam i think its great although i think the lens barrel is a little lose so im gunna take it to an independent and see what they thing...might just be how it is...again refer to being pedantic...and a perfectionist...

Thank you there was a lot of air turbulence that night which made it very hard to get a sharp focus. If you look at it you will notice there are areas that aren't as sharp as others because of the air turbulence.

That would be the United States Postal Service and they're even out in Charlotte County, although things are quite as regular as they would like either.

The electricity arrived yesterday, although the phone system concentrator at the front of the development still has a battery or generator attached to it.

By the way, since the power was out and therefore my printer, I decided to try self-service photo kiosk printers.

The Fuji version was cheapest at $0.18 per print so I started with that one. It found the directory containing the directory containing the photos but no photos. I could not coax it into seeing what was there.

The Kodak version was $0.28 per print and instantly recognised all of the photos. I believe it showed 8 at a time and you touched the image to select it. At this time, there were also selections for quantity, paper size (4x6 or 8x10) and editing of some sort. The prints started arriving quickly but I noticed a couple of things: the colour seemed slightly faded and the 4 inches was more than 4 inches. It also did not manage to handle a couple of truly contrasty prints well but then, I have to use Photoshop to deal with those anyway.

Both machines warned of printing copyrighted images and the Fuji machine made me believe that if I had marked the images with my name, etc. in Photoshop, that it would reject printing of those images.

here is the easiest way...

1.Take your photo and bring it into photoshop..
2. Make a new layer from copy
3. Select the new layer in the layers pallete, then desaturate the layer.
4. Using any selection tool of your choice, select the areas you wish to regain color to.
5. Next take the background eraser tool (note it is hiding behind the eraser tool)
and draw tool all over selected area to regain color information.
6. Flatten your image (bottom of menu--->layers) and save your file :D

Here is a quicky example of the effect you can produce with the above steps:

Actually, you're 100% wrong! The easiest way of course, is to use the history brush in photoshop! Make a snapshot in the history palette, desaturate, select the color snapshot thumbnail in the history palette and use the history brush to paint in the color. Easy peasy!

some shots of the relatively new library downtown...


I agree with Moxie about the familiarity of these shots.

well, i don't actually remember you saying they were your photos, but that's still pretty ****ty. tazo is a cool guy; i know i would be pissed if i knew someone was reposting my photos without permission or credit given. though it could be seen as a really strange compliment... ?


peace.

Actually, you're 100% wrong! The easiest way of course, is to use the history brush in photoshop! Make a snapshot in the history palette, desaturate, select the color snapshot thumbnail in the history palette and use the history brush to paint in the color. Easy peasy!

example:

k apparently i was too vague with my reply... i am tazo/daniel... apparently all the mods have known for a while now.. :eek:

i got banned, but really liked MR and the atmosphere, so i made a new account so i could post my work to this thread -- i dont think i have posted outside the community forums.

i just thought i could continue to add something to MR -- despite my having been banned...

Welcome back!? and good bye?....

if they knew it was you why didn't they ban you sooner? maybe they had no proof....oh well, we missed you...or at least some of us did....sorry I haven't seen you on FM lately....I've been kind of extremely busy...

BTW, the easiest way to do desat is to copy the layer (to maintain the original color below) desaturate the new layer and apply a layer mask....there's an even easier approach that was in last month's photoshop user but I don't have it with me....I'll post the technique later...

This isn't the greatest picture but it has a good statement.

this is a prolonged exposure on my Nike FE with my 28 mm Nikkor lens.

the lighting was very dim originally so no flash was used. the blurs are people walking around.
