Fun shot while setting up Christmas decorations. This was taken on the D40x with the SB-600 bounced straight up. I used the brand new Nikon 50mm AFS 1.4 lens! Great lens so far! ISO 400 & f5.6

Enjoy! I'm new here so I just want to say hello to everybody.

You didn't mention lens used and focal length setting.

Anyhow, I know what you were trying to do, but your lens just isn't wide enuf- there's too much sky and not enuf detail.

If you can, try cropping so that you can only see the central dome within the full frame eliminating the rest of the building. This will give you more detail and a full frame shot.

I need help with some snow shots. Today is a big Lake Effect Snow, and I recently bought a raincoat for my D40X, the

Kata KAE702CRC E-702 Elements Cover, from B&H (local Ritz does not carry it). Excellent product.

I did some frost pics yesterday, but hating high ISO numbers, there were some lost due to motion (ISO was 100) and I did this in the shade before the sun melted the ice on the pine cones, even though the sun was out.

So today...storm clouds block light, so shall I up the ISO to get snow shots? I do not just want the snow falling, but other stuff. Like individual flakes on a black background, etc.

Thanks so much.

From the Noreaster, In the Noreast.

Snowstorm rolling through New England. I took this shot around 5:30PM Friday Dec. 19.

D60, Nikkor 50mm/1.8, 1/60, f/2.8, ISO 800, exposure compensation -.7,
Auto setting for WB. Hand-held.

I shot in NEF and processed in Photoshop Elements 6, changing the WB to tungsten and increasing the saturation.

Old and New. Pipsqueak, our new runt mousetrap, loves to be inside of anything, but she flinches at flashes...so I covered it and turned up the ISO, brightened a bit in PSP.

Donna,

You only have to be a Silver member to post images directly in your posts- although there are other benefits as well.

To post an image, get an account on a hosting site like PhotoBucket, then link the images in your posts as other have done here.

Good Luck!

#33. "Christmas Ornaments"
In response to Reply # 0


Victoria, CA
          

Greetings. I hope I do this right. It's my first post, I'm a newbie! I just got a Nikon D60 for Christmas, and have basically just been playing around with the Auto settings so far.

This photo was taken using the kit lens 18-55mm. I recall I was playing with the focus point, which would mean I was probably on the Macro setting.

Fingers crossed, that my link works

http://www.flickr.com/photos/jmlphoto/3185617186/

Kind Regards,
Jessica

Jessica,

Pls remember to list the EXIF information so we know which settings on the camera you used to achieve your shot.

If I may be critical for the purpose of enlightenment, I feel that direct flash is very harsh and should be avoided. Some ppl use diffusers which softens the flash effect which can produce very natural colours/shades.

Since you are taking a shot of an inanimate object, I would suggest you use a slower shutter speed, larger aperture (watch your DOF when adjusting aperture tho) and adjust ISO to achieve the same result. You will find that using A mode, even with shutter speeds of 1 or 2 seconds will produce a very natural and warm shot.

Try it when you have a chance to see the difference. If you need further assistance then pls post your question in this forum- you will have a lot of people eager to help you.

Pls remember to take my criticism as constructive with the goal of bringing the best out of you.

JDMils,

Thanks for the tips. I can handle constructive criticism!

I will be sure to add the EXIF info next time. For this oranament photo above it was: 30mm, F/4.8, 1/125sec, ISO100. (and as I stated, I set none of this - strictly auto settings)

The tree was already down when I posted that picture, so unfortunately I couldn't re-try a similar shot with your suggestions. However, I was going back to look at other ornament images, and I see what you mean about the harsh light. I had a few (flash-free) that were much softer/warmer/more natural... but I had trouble with focus (no tripod).

I don't yet know much about setting my own aperature, or how the different settings affect each other... I have lots to learn, and lots to practice...

Cheers!
Jessica
