......Indeed! Fires the imagination right up, doesn't it?
I almost wish I had not started this thread as now I have googled "quadcopter" and I am hooked, totally hooked!......
...I have put my gopro .... up on a stunt kite. .....Um, even if the results were unusable, that was a brilliant bit if innovative thinking. Kudos for thinking that up and giving it a go!!
The stunt kite was a bit more interesting.... let's just say that if you need to produce unwatchable, nausea-inducing video, a stunt kite and a GoPro are the way to go....
There are times when I would like to take a bird's eye view of something....Google for quadcopter.
Insightful post, PBD...but you're missing the big picture. It's not just a 'because we can' moment - it's one more small step on the road to the EF TS 12-400mm f/2L Macro IS Pancake lens we all want.D'oh, you forgot motorized tilt and shift mechanisms for tethered use.
.......By the way, it's very obvious in one of those pictures that the carpet wasn't even on that floor. It's a composite image.Now that is cheating.
I think fing lights for portraits are creepy! Unless you are going for a vampire effect. Wait a minute, can you photograph a vampire...Only in live view. Since vampires don't reflect in mirrors, the viewfinder will be blank on an SLR.
Summertime and the livin's easy... by David KM, on Flickr
I see you shot in color then converted to black and white, I'm looking for shooting in black and white from the get go, and trying to use my mind and "see" the world in black and white as I shoot, but I'm finding it difficult to imagine that. My mentor stated he can do that sort of. Have you ever heard of doing this?....
The best B&W photographers "see" in B&W. Part of the trick is looking for shapes, patterns and textures, but mood comes into it too. When it comes to digital, conversions often work better than actually shooting in B&W, as to get the best tones, you need the full tonal range to start with. Digital B&W settings tend to be too flat to get real impact, without alot of work (which you can't really do from a jpeg). Oversaturating before conversion can give some real impact. Of course black and white film is another story, as it has been designed differently.
Seeing in B&W comes naturally if you shoot B&W all the time...when you mix it it becomes more difficult. Think about this.....in the days of film i shot almost exclusively b&w with my 4x5 field camera. the view on the ground glass was upside down...but I never noticed it, it becomes completely natural after a while...Ansel Adams talked about pre visualization..i o w you 'see' the final, in his case, print, before you trip the shutter....thus you teach yourself how the tones and contrast etc etc will look before you make the image... the mind can do anything, all it take s is a bit of practice!

.......I especially like Gammyknee's shot just above. How did you get the entire frame in focus?
