This is a picture of something around my house, if I told you what it is youd laugh. 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5 lens, SB600 'test popped' from above, and it's blue because I selected 'halogen' white balance

Thanks!

Looks like a drawer pull to me - a dark one.

Personally I never would have thought about photographing a drawer pull. That is creative.

I love it! I like especially the way you've framed it. The position of the subject within the void really lends a tension to the shot that lifts it above the ordinary.

Good job.

This was a test of something, I forgot what. I just needed a quick shot to check something out and my jeans were right there.

When I put it in Photoshop, I thought it was actually nice.

BTW I need critiquing in order to improve. I have a ton of webshots photos up from Malawi, and elsewhere, especially hiking here in CT.
I plan on some here as I get done editing. I am just now done with sorting them into folders on my HD.

Anyways, I found this shot finally which I took last week when I could not sleep. 6:00 AM, sun coming up through the skylight on one of my sets of antique ice skates.

Hi Bob...

Um, I'm sure this is a nice photo...but i cant see it. I think you have some serious re-sizing to do...also, could you post some info about this pic? such as camera used, lens, mm, wb, pp, ap/sp/manual etc...

Thanks.

Yeah, I kinda noticed it was still huge after but I had to leave.

Nikon D40X, 55-200MM Nikon VR ED, set at 62MM, f8, shutter speed 3 seconds, ISO 100.

It is the back door of the house to the sunroom, with the sun coming in very early morning. Went on a hike in the cold dew after this. As I was making coffee I noticed the skates were lit by something so I went to check for lights on. None were; it was the sunrise.

Hi all,

First post so please be gentle. Thought I'd have a bit of a play with manual to give a low exposure.

Looks OK from here, but am also a neophyte. Looks like what natural light would do, actually. But it is sharp.

I totally forgot I had this shot from when I first got my D40X. It is for my business site. I took a lot of them to get just this one.

I have a collection of both baseball caps (I have always worn a baseball cap since I was a kid) and antique tobacco drying racks from CT, where all cigar wrappers are made worldwide. These are all late 19th century racks. Natural light.

One thing I did today was try out my new Polarizer. I noticed that many of the shots I took like that overexposed table can be remedied> I did tests with/without it. Glare is gone.

But in this one? It has to be either overexpossed or filled in with fill flash to get the face, or all you get is a shadowed face and a table.

IMHO, as an amatuer.

In response to Reply # 21

Thanks Bob. I will look into the Polariser situation soon. If you look at the shooting specs, no flash and in "Programmed Auto" mode so shutter would be set by camera to create a viable exposure.

I suppose the camera aint that smart, eh!?

In response to Reply # 17


Drammen, NO
          

When I look at the EXIF data, it seems like you are shooting raw (NEF). When converting into ViewNX (?) try to do the exposure compensation. Reduce with -0,5EV or -1EV. Maybe your highlights aren't lost.
Have you tried to activate the Active D-lightning in the camera?

In this picture you could also reduce/darken the midtones and put some more saturation to it (+15).
Remember, the Color Mode is not affecting when you use the RAW.

When you have finished, do some sharpening.

What I did as a suggestion (in PaintShopPro):
-aligned and did some perspective correction (auto-crop).
-increased the contrast by setting highlights at 230
-darkened the midtones by setting at 140
-resized
-sharpened using USM, radius: 0,8 - amount: 100 - clipping: 0

Hi All,

This cat is around the house. She was lying in what I thought was a photogenic position, so I took the pic. At first she was a bit concerned when I got down on the ground with her, but then she relaxed & laid back down.

Her name is Thea, after Aretha Franklin, which my then 5yo daughter could not pronounce when we got her. The cat, that is.

Fri 12-Sep-08 01:57 AM by Beatkat

Oxford, US
          

My wood shop is attached to the house,(does that count?)......and I make and restore fine furniture. Usually the place is a mess, with several projects going on at once, making a working replacement key for a cabinet lock, hand planing and then carving some beautiful dark Rosewood on a chest foot repair, were two of todays projects, and I happened to look down where I set the carving tools down, and saw a composition right in front of me eyes...I have tried to set up something like this before, and it always seems to look staged.....this one was not, and I think because it was more natural,it made a good subject. I did turn off the fluorescent shop lights, and use an incandescent flood light to illuminate the Antique table top that I was using as a bench, to warm up the shot and add some more direct light.

In response to Reply # 40


AU
          

Just a point to note: you don't need all the HTTP stuff when posting a link- just put the link in your post as-is.

PS. Very cool shot. My noob comments:

* Don't like the brick wall background- it's not a natural scene.
* Maybe more DOF so that the cage was in focus as well.
* Slightly faster shutter would have captured the wings in crispness.

Like I said, these are my preferences and everyone will have their own. Well done.

Never thought about the porch in the background, I agree, not natural.
I'll try to remember the shutter next time, There's so much to try to remember but I'll get there.
What cage? He was on the bird feeder on my porch.

Great shot of the bird. I took the liberty of doing a bit of photoshopping, just a bit of cropping and contrast. I hope you don't mind.

Hi all, new to the forum. Thought I would give it a try. I took this photo with my D40/18-55mm. I did the photo in b/w and mabe the wifes eyes and lips in color. This picture is nice because I can look at it and don't have to hear anything. If anyone else has some b/w photos that they made something in color I would be interested in seeing it. Thanks,

new user ryanfive

Camera in one hand, string in another. Took many shots to get the new mousetrap while still in the air. She's too fast! Even caught a mouse last night, 2 AM. At only 4 weeks old. I knew there was one in the house some place. She lost it though when I went to get the camera after wiping the cobwebs.

Accidental shot.

Was bending down, not looking through the viewfinder, trying to focus on the sunset off of the plant and end table in the living room. What is focused is the kitchen window. Amazing that there is no life outside of it, since deer are usually there.

Nice shot. The only thing I would do is crop out the left side all the way to the edge of the bubble. That will keep the eye from wandering off the main subject and really put the focus on "A Girl and Her Bubble."

Was it THAT dark that you had to use ISO800? I would avoid anything on or above ISO400 due to the increased possibility of introducing noise into the image. I try to take all my shots at ISO100 and then step up until I get the correct exposure.

You might also want to increase the Vibrance or Saturation to give the colours more impact. I have found that it makes my dull shots look vibrant.

I was kinda experimenting with various settings and seeing at which point I could actually detect graining. The entrance hallway is quite dark - I had to prevent the camera from using flash even at ISO200.

Whilst I do post-process pictures now this one is exactly as it was taken. The colours are pretty representative of the real thing.

Thanks for the comments though

I don't think we needed to hear the T word! Other than that, the shot is gr8!

My opinion: I would watch out for the brown (Yuck!) shadow at the base and the reflection of light off the water.

Don't forget to post EXIF info!

They are great but you have to use high f stops and either a tripod or something to lean/rest on, most if not all of the time. A very slow shutter speed, most times also. But you can get close!

I thought I had posted this yesterday, but maybe not.

Color adjusted a bit to match frog before I noticed the frog could do it all by itself without my help.

This guy was 1/2 to 3/4 inch long and peeped at night and this AM in the house!

I think it is a grey tree frog, a Northeastern variety.

Description of what?

Just some afternoon 'creative crysis'. Just started making people out of pieces of paper and white duct tape and ended up with this.
It was only after I finished that I realised I was crazy ))

Daddy longlegs are very poisonous spiders, but fangs too short to bite us, thank God.



This 1/4 second, f36, ISO 400, halogen work light, all three extension tubes of 17mm, 20mm, 26mm

Everyone in our house has caps and hats. Sometimes they even hang them up!

This was shot in natural light using the 18-55 DX lens and auto setting. To get the shot, I braced the D40x against the microwave as a tripod wouldn't fit the space.
