Nice shots, 5300cs. I especially like the sunrise shot, though. You do know that you can put more than one picture in the same post, though, right?

Anyway so you guys made a new thread after 3 pages!? I was wondering how I wasn't subscribed. Is there any way you can auto subscribe us so we'll know if the thread moves? I didn't get a notice that the last messages had been posted :(

I've been working in the darkroom lately! The only problem is that we have to buy nearly everything except the enlarger and chemicals. I'm suprised (apparently suprise and suprised don't exist in Safari's dictionary :() they don't make us rent the space and pay the water bill! Well, there is one other problem. The people are incompetent. I found fix tongs on the side of the water tank. I see people drop tongs on the water table and attempt to use them again. I see so many stupid things it's amazing. I even see a girl, who's concentration is photography, and, on more than one occasion, she's used developer tongs to push her print down into the stop!

I'm glad I have an hour after class free. It affords me about 15 extra minutes to print. The only problem is I don't know what else they've done to the chemicals while my back was turned :(. I guess this is to be expected in beginning photo. I wish there was a way I could advance, or use some of the grad darkrooms, or get my own darkroom. There's a girl in there who knows all if this stuff already too and I know she's pissed without even having to ask her. What's worse is that our professor has said these things on multiple occasions and they still make these mistakes. I know they're trying but is it really that hard to not put one set of tongs into the a different chemical?

Oh well. As soon as I get to a nice scanner I'll post some pics.

I've got some of those cloud pics too :) You may have seen this shot on my site or a previous thread. I wouldn't normally post this shot again, but you guys put a bunch of similar ones so here goes:

http://www.gra-phix.com/img/photo/rays.jpg

It's not as noticeable in the black and white version at this resolution, but there's a bird way the hell up there in one of the rays. Luckily I didn't lose this photo when Apple reformatted my drive :) Someone has requested a version of this for they're desktop, and if they're reading, know I'll be diligently looking for it later on this evening. I'll probably post it to my site in a few flavors, something like 1600x1200 and 1280x854, however I'll be accepting requests if there are any more :)

BTW, Belair, I think that shot would be awesome in B&W! Anyway, to put your pictures directly into the page you have to host them somewhere and then link them like "URL", without quotes of course.

EDIT: I'm bored with this three hour gap between classes. Of course I'll be more bored with my completely boring professor with her required class :mad: Anyway, I hope you don't mind Belair, but here's a B&W version (I should've given more contrast to the grass :() of your image....Neut, now it's your turn! :)

Here's one of the first photos of the eclipse I took. I like how it just hints at the moon.


All the following images I'm about to post have only had brightness and contrast adjusted. I haven't had time to make any other adjustments.

All of them were taken with using a Canon S230 shooting through a 25 mm eyepiece held there by a bracket mounted to Orion XT-10. Total magnification for standard unzoomed photos is 48x.

Eclipse 4

Well naturally with half a moon cycle (2 weeks) before or after a lunar eclipse is a solar eclipse.

Here's what I caught of the solar eclipse at sunset from Honolulu:

http://www.santaduck.com/blog/eclipse1_1024.jpg
and
solar eclipse sunset 1 (http://www.santaduck.com/blog/eclipse3_1024.jpg)

And my buddy Aphinity got it the lunar one:

Lunar eclipse (http://www.santaduck.com/blog/aphinityeclipse.jpg)

quote from my oct 15 blog:
(Oct 15): Eclipse: There was a rare partial solar eclipse visible where I live on Wednesday (Oct 13), and I took some photos. Normally you can't really see partial eclipses in the middle of the day, because the sun shines so brightly. However this one occured at sunset, so you could see notice it easily. Here are some pics, click for a larger version. This eclipse was visible in Oct 14 in Siberia, Japan, and eastern China, and due to the international dateline, Oct 13 in Hawaii and Western Alaska-- The latter had a great view of over 92% totality at sunset. Also note that in 2 weeks on Oct 27, a total lunar eclipse (earth's shadow covering the full moon) will be visible through Western Europe and most of the Americas. Coincidence? It's not a coincidence if you think about it-- the paths of the sun & moon are now aligned with the sun, so it makes sense that a lunar eclipse will occur in a half a month (i.e. moon cycle) when the moon and Earth have switched places... and because the point of view of the moon will see a ring of red sunset around the Earth, we'll see a dim moon go through reddish sunset hues as it approaches totality.

i really like that technique. :) the image really pops; the grain of the stone against the sky is nice. there is some green tinge (could be from the JPEG), but it seems to help the image be more dynamic and separate better) i like it! :cool:

[SIZE=1]* ... is that a crow looking down at you?[SIZE]

peace.


YES INDEED the crow was looking down. What's extra cool about this technique is that I try and take an i mage with a histogram that peaks in the center. With low contrast, I get an image that's flat-ish out of the camera, but gives me *enough* color in the sky and more than enough detail in the subject.

I took the tomb as my first layer, contrasted it up in PS CS Raw, got the detail, color and balance correct (tried to expose a *bit* of the tomb door) and that was file one. Then i re-opened the same file is PS CS Raw, set it to camera default, and went about getting the sky correctly colored and made sure that the tomb was almost black. What that did was allow me to get some of those punchy edges you see on the top dormer of the tomb.

I then put both on different layers in the same PS file, and layer masked out the blown out sky from the first round of processing. Kinda cool technique, a little time consuming but I like the results, and it's easier and gives you more control than using filters. :D

I'm still hedging on that green and yellow area-- I mean, that's what was exposed, but i dunno if i like it.Might try and even the color out. But it basically gives the same effect as a graduated Neutral Density filter, except i'm not limited by a 50-50 split, which in this case wouldn't have worked right, or a regular ND or polarizer.

I was thinking about starting a site with a bunch of downloadable technique tips, all illustrated out and such. Mayeb charge $9.95 a lesson.

Whaddya think Neut? Is there a market??

there won't be if you give them away ... ;)

i could see a market for them if packaged correctly. at least PDF or html walkthroughs ... perhaps Flash? It's what i do for a living if you need some help (WBT- web based training).

This is a killer technique. i could see pushing it further; even making another layer for the statue (fore - middle - back). If post processing is carried out anyways ... why not shoot that way. what a great idea. :D ... though this greatly increases PS time the result seems very worthwhile. :)

not a practice for large shoots unless you have some time to burn. :p

Thanks. I was thinking the PDF route. Almost like Thom Hogan's ebook thing that he does on bythom.com except i'd want them to be short, maybe 5-10 pages, and downloadable. I'd love to chat with you a bit more about this stuff. I have about 15-20 techniques that I use, from general post-processing in CS for those large photo shoots (doing one now working through 1500 shots. damn) and others for simulating soft focus, noise removal, general sharpening techniques, etc.

Flash might be nice, but I'd want to have some PS actions available to the end-user, so for say, lesson 8, they'd need a PS action i wrote. How does flash do downloadable delivery? I'm wayyyyyy behind on my flash. Spend too much time figuring stuff like this out. Heh.

Thanks for the barn comment. :) I was pretty happy with that one. I have another version with a bit of variance on the sky. You can really do alot with this type of processing, and provided you expose correctly-- get SOME highlight and SOME shadow you can do it fairly noiselessly.

Then again, you just by my noise removal tutorial and action and bam! You have a noiseless file again. haha.

Having moved up to a real camera (Canon 20D) recently, I thought I'd share a few pics from yesterday on the Mall. It was a crappy day, with a little drizzle now and then, so details were the subject, not really a day for the monuments. Also, everything is being worked on and they all have scaffolding or bare earth, not really good for scenery. Also, these are all from the jpgs - I don't have CS right now, only at home, so it will have to do.

Bonus points if you can figure out where the *all* were shot :D

Not all of it! ;) There's enough in raw processing too. hehe. Thanks Deefuzz. It's actually not that hard of a technique, just requires you to do what ol' ansel did and that's previsualize the scene. (i'm in no way comparing myself to ansel. just using one of his methods!)

When I saw the scene, I knew I couldn't photograph it as effectively with a "normal" exposure that the camera reads--the sky would be blown out! So I used that knowledge and went from there. It's all really based on experience and working with this stuff enough to know. :)

That said, I took a wee bit of artistic liberty in the color of the sky, but still. Haha

Wow that is a cool transformation of layers!! Good job :eek:

Here is a merge of two images I shot last night after work. I shot each skater seperately, and during processing, I realized I might be able to merge them.

So I put them together, cut out the middle, and stitched up the seam with the healing tool. I thought it turned out pretty good for my first try at stitching (though the pics themselves aren't great lol).

ah, it wasn't hard to do manually. Plus, the photos weren't taken at the same angle, or from the same distance or anything (no tripod). It took a little rotating, resizing, and blending - which I think would only turn out decently if done with full control.

so just out of interest, i was going to look at some details of the images, looking at how you might have done those - and I'm pretty sure I know what you did, but not exactly.

however, one thing i did notice is that looking at the image in Photoshop right next to the one in the browser and they were different...significantly. Actually, the one in photoshop was a little less saturated and looked better.

So why is that and is there anything that can be done to prevent it (especially if I'm the only one noticing this)

What browser are you using? It probably doesn't support ICC profiles, but Photoshop does. Did it ask you anything about the color profiles when you opened the file?

The power lines and tower in the background bother me a little bit, and the picture isn't level either, it seems. I like the composition though. I like the contrasty B&W, and the loss of detail in the windows, etc. (also the face) on the right makes it interesting (to me.) Is this one in a series? It might be cool to have a close-up of the model looking off into the distance or something.

Great start- keep it up!

Personally I think the Powerlines and tower are an essential piece of this composure that help give it certain feeling of real world. Also I think it helps balance the photo since your subject is so close to the left hand side of the photo. What does bother be is the white pole crossing the whole photo and to a lesser extent the black bars from the railing to the ceiling. The railing itself is fine but the support bars that run from it to the ceiling seem to be a detractant to me.

but the picture was super spontanious , so for me it was a pretty surprising result .

here it is a little straighter , no power tower thing , but i left in the wires .. i know they dont make much sense , but ;. aah maybe im just lazy .... i do think it looks better without the tower

but the picture was super spontanious , so for me it was a pretty surprising result .

here it is a little straighter , no power tower thing , but i left in the wires .. i know they dont make much sense , but ;. aah maybe im just lazy .... i do think it looks better without the tower
but seriously thanks for the input guys !

Yay, now that I can actually see it, I think it would rock if you cropped it wide, just above the models head. But that's just my opinion. You can test it by scrolling it in your browser...

Thanks Mike. :)

i tried it cropped a bit lower, but it felt a bit cramped and with all the grid so gratuitously pointed out it started to look a bit warped. ;)

i pulled the front of the models shirt a bit tighter and lit up his arm, foot and butt pocket, and gave the hair some sheen (matted).

i like this photo thevessels! :D

What an opportunity and nice photos. Some slight levels adjustments will make them snap, imo. The monkey taste like chicken? Tasting some fried rattlesnake is as brave as I've gotten in food experiments.

They have been many nice pictures--I'm glad this thread is still alive.

Yes, on the smaller surf days I choose kayak over surfboard. It it tons of fun. I have been out in 5 foot surf in the kayak and that gets a bit hairy. Usually anything over 3 feet I grab the surfboard. Here's a couple of action shots. Also threw in a shot of my friends A4 during our off-roading adventure.

Off to do some surfing now...just got a new surfboard a few days ago. Maybe I'll post some pics of that too.

Everything i use is stock/default in Photoshop (i have yet to use CS2). I'm not one for actions or plug-ins; though, i do like to use them to sketch out ideas and try to recreate them later myself. :) The built in filters do more than enough damage. :p

Kind of ... you have to keep a good eye on the image though; it can get muddy really fast or just blown out. The filter can get in the way as well; it should be balanced. i usually don't add any color ... just use what's in the image already.

For example, if you look at post number 180, the flower is very focussed and everything behind it is blurred. How do you do this? Is it possible on a Nikon Coolpix 2100?

Here are 2 photos that I'm proud of. let me know what you think.


the trees and shadows one is wonderful! i even saved it so i could use it as a desktop sometime :)
if possible, if you get a chance (and remember) could you please try to take a picture of that same location in Autumn? the fallen leaves would look amazing i bet.

Wow, it sure has been a long time since I've had time to check out the photography threads on here. I just wanted to say the shots on here are getting better every time I look. Great shots everybody! :)

I'm going to throw my hat back in and post a few shots of my own. Let me know what you think, I've forgotten how fun all this is! :)

The Waterfall is just a great waterfall I have been to probably too many times named Proxy Falls. The flowers were shot along a walkway in a park where I live, and that spider just happened to jump in there at the perfect time. The one that looks like concrete was just an art piece in the same park that looked interesting.

For example, if you look at post number 180, the flower is very focussed and everything behind it is blurred. How do you do this?Well I can do it on my Nikon Coolpix 5200. I use macro mode, and then change the auto-focus spot to where I want it. Easy as that!!

Hope it helps.

Awesome! I love your "remixes." Could you by any chance remix the one of my avatar (just the fuzzy type, soften type - I don't know what it's actually called - like the top half in the Six Flags picture) and this one of me:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v455/300hemic/People/123636079_l.jpg

This one's nifty too. Amazingly, I took it in a really dark biology room. I have to clue how all the light got there, but the flash was off, because I didn't want my teacher to see I had my camera in the middle of class!
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v455/300hemic/People/119320351_l.jpg

This one was taken by me in the old part of the boys locker room at my high school. I think it's very "modern art" like. The stalls were ripped down to make way for a renovation of the area. I wish the reflection of the flash wasn't there...
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v455/300hemic/People/bathroom.jpg

You have to love this picture. It was like the second to last day of school, and we always made fun of this teacher and her keychain with the little Cardinal on it. I took this, but I didn't realize that someone was in the background making a weird face! I love how it came out blurry and the foreground is so sharp.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v455/300hemic/People/cummingskey.jpg

Okay, maybe not truly "this thread safe," but I think this picture speaks for itself. Please note, that isn't my hand (lots of people were like, "hey, Ryan, why are you wearing a purple ring?!"), but I did have to stick my hand out the window to get the picture.

Yeah me too. Sorry I took so long to reply, I haven't been getting emails for some reason.

i definitely need a better camera ... :p

That first pick was really dark on my work's PC monitor, but it's stunning on my Mac! :eek: ... i couldn't even see the Closed on my wicked ViewSonics at work. :p

That building looks escher-esque; sharp and strange ... very nice. And i think i can smell that flower. :)


Here's a quick remix of one of zync's pics ... i hope that's ok zync. ;)

Definitely OK! I love what you did to the clouds! Out of curiosity, what exactly did you do with the colors? It looks like you upped the saturation. I wish I had taken that in RAW though. I need to set my 20D to capture more sat right of the bat :)

Anyway, you can always remix my pics. It's an honor, lol. It's good to be back in the company of you guys. Hopefully, MR will actually email me the next time someone posts!

I used to be very much into photography, but then I tapered off. Some of my stuff can be seen in the ooooold photography threads, if you're interested (not that it's very good, but it's there). Anyway, here is a picture I took while on my camping trip. It holds a great sentimental value to me...

Amin, those are great shots, especially the one of your wife(?) and son!

I was inspired by someone's bag shot so I figured that I would snap a few inside today since going outside means a huge temp and humidity difference and thus mucho condensation on my lens unless I leave my cam in the bag for a while.

Anyway here it is...

Here are 2 photos that I'm proud of. let me know what you think.

It's called 'depth of field'. If your camera has the ability to manually adjust the aperture, than you can manually control the effect.

Basically, the more wide open the lens iris is (smaller aperture number), the less 'in focus' everything behind the focal point is going to appear. Inversely, the less wide open the lens iris is (bigger aperture number), the more 'in focus' everything behind the focal point will appear. The aperture you should use really depends on the type of photography you're doing. For portraits and macro work, a lot of people like using a wide aperture because it blurs the background nicely and draws attention to the subject, which is what you're talking about on post #280.

Hope that helps!

jessica, I enjoyed those shots and appreciated your web site explaining that they were "digital infrared." Don't think I've seen such good examples before.

amin, it's so difficult to get proper lighting on near subjects and good skin tones--you did it perfectly. The squirrel on fence is a winner, too.

Nice work everyone, including excruciatingly sharp Altoids and urinals!

I had forgotten about this one. I've got to put it on my website with some other pictures of Paris. I snapped this with my S400 after doing a double take while walking down the street. I did a double take because of the line "How much did you pay for your bad moto guzzi" from the Cake song Rock n' Roll Lifestyle. I always thought it was Motor Guzzi, until I saw one, lol. I like Moto Guzzi better anyway :D

Take those classes but don't let them interfere with your natural eye for photography. To go with your excellent spider here is a Hummingbird Clearwing Moth. I'd never seen one of these before but identified it after a web search. They can move fast.

These two photos were both done with long exposers the first was done at f4.5 for 30 seconds I then used a flashlight to give them this halo type affect.
The second one was done with the same f-stop of 4.5 but with shutter speed of 20 seconds I used the flashlight again but this time I took of the top to expose the bulb and slowly traced the shoes with the light, I held this light about a inch from the shoes.
I think it's cool how the flash light and my hand do not show in the photo

This photo was done with a long exposure, allowing me to trace the shoes with a flashlight. sorry about the double post the first two tries my .jpg was too large hope this works its at 156kb

That's a very interesting photo, rpaloalto. Looks very surreal. That's not a bad idea about the flashlight. What was the exposure on that (f-stop and shutter speed)?
