Hi 

I came back on here after an absence for a while and the site seems to have got really quiet.  Less castings, a lot less chat on the forums.  It seems to be going downhill?
19 mins ago - posted by RedChecker
It could also be the metering mode used. If you're using spot and not pre-registering a mid-tone (say) then it'll be all over the place as you're shooting. Evaluative is probably best for point & shoot without worrying about registering a mid-tone or highlight.

The very first of our Sunday group shoots here in Gosport will be with the lovely Nicky Philips. 2 sessions of 2 hours with 4 photographers at each session. Nicky will be posing through many styles and genres finishing with figure nude.
 I set the lights and scenes so this really is an opportunity to add pictures of a beautiful model in several styles to any portfolio at an economical rate. Of course these events have also become well known for their social activity with an opportunity to meet and chat with like minded photographers. Always well organised and everyone takes it in turns.
 
session 1 12.30pm to 2.30pm
 
Session 2 3pm to 5pm
 
£50 per photographer just  3 places left on each session

Curry/Dixons/pcworld, have a Sony bridge in stores at the moment just under £100 looks like it might be the one to go for, It's got quite a few good comments on it, ( Although its possible that some of the reviewer's might not know their aperture from their armpit, But then again I get confused) Basically just something to inspire me with ideas for later on.

I have seen take down notices mentioned in the past - on purestorm, its a pretty common "trend" but that wasn't what this post was about - the professional landscape photographer this happened to knows how to deal with the situation, shes had it happen before and will have it happen again no doubt. 

It was purely a question of - could you socialise with people who had done this in the past?




In this case, the answer I gave to your question — which was that no, I would not bring a work problem into a social situation — remains correct.

Ah, right. Now I get it, to calibrate Canon zoom lens', run two tests one at each end of the zoom. A target check between is handy. Where I'd experienced problems is in not checking the recommends distance from lens to target for my 70-200. In the end I set it up in the garden and shot through the dining room window to give sufficient length!

For anyone who shoots wide open, you'll find this calibration tool superb to ensure each lens is set to work at its best with each of your camera bodies. Fast and repeatable tests in which the software automates the click, de-focs and refocus process and takes around 20 shots of the target to find at which point in the calibration adjustments you get the sharpest image. This is then saved to the camera. For zooms its likely you'll have to different calibrations applied, ensure the wide and the close end are tuned to best effect.

Also interesting is that the software will also check your shaprest or poorest aperture setting for each lens so you'll know how best to use them.

It may be you calibrate in a more conventional method, but I have to say I think its a really ball ache and as a new user of the Reikan kit this weekend, I tweaked 7 lens' to two camera bodies in around 4 hours ( some of which was fooling about with the kit and setting up thee targets etc)

I'd say its an essential bit of kit, and arguably the cheapest upgrade available for your photography in image quality terms.

I have a brand new, never been used before Lowepro Vertex 300 AW.

The story is that I purchased this bag online. Unfortunately I ordered the 300 AW instead of the 200 AW. I only realized my mistake a few weeks later.

It’s a fantastic bag. Loads and loads of space. It’s the AW range (All Weather) So comes with the built in rain protector.

You can read the full specs on the Lowpro website. And a video can be found on my website. Just click the link on the HomePage

Just a note: the website says YES to Carry On Luggage Compatible. But that may only be for USA airlines. It might make it in a squeeze with UK airlines. Check before trying to take it as Carry On. (Mentioned to be by a friend)

Reason for selling: It’s just a bit too big for what I need and I missed the 2 week return item date.

I have since replaced it with a different LowPro and just been too lazy to sell this one off.

Asking price is £123.79 Baring in mind. Brand new from LowPro website is £236.00 and mine has never been used.

Serious offers only. No trade. Cash only. Delivery within reason (Update: Car is currently out of action, so collection only at this point - sorry) (Sidcup, Kent) Or collection.

Images of the bag are also on my website.

Biggest problem I see in your modelling is a lack of emotion/mood/engagement. If that's something you struggle to do yourself, as seems to be the case, then you really need to find photographers who can help you with that aspect. Having said that ALL the images currently in your port are from the same photographer so maybe you have work with other photographers which gives a much better representation of that side of your modelling.

Quote from dhuntuk
Yes, I have worked out that I have to underexpose by exactly one half of a stop to reliably get the images I need after performing a white/grey balance. ie. Measure for f5.6 5/10 and shoot at f8. I cannot make sense of the histogram as it is all gobbledegook to me!




The histogram is not that hard once you've checked it out on the Internet. It's a good way of making sure that you are not overexposing an image by clipping the right-hand side, or under exposing an image by clipping the left-hand side.
 
Every time I look it up on the Internet I always come across this saying, "shoot to the right." I'm sure loads of photographers on here could explain what that means better than me, but as I am one of the few people left on the forum I suppose I ought to have a go.

In simplistic terms you ideally need the spikes on your histogram to be on the right side, but not so far right that they are right up against the corner or your image will turn out to be overexposed.
 
The same principle applies to the left-hand side. Only this time, if you are clipping the left side then your image will be underexposed.
 
Hope that makes sense.laugh
