PS, I see your Name " tpatana" Look like Thai Name, Are  you live in Thailand ?--Yes, I am Thai People too.


I wish, that would be cool. Some time long long time ago in the far away galaxy, I was looking to register www.patana.com for myself, but at the point it was registered for a school in Bangkok, called "Patana school" I think.

I admit nothing.

I'm from Finland myself. And I love panang curry.

In general when ordering 3rd party items (or 4th) from China, you can't take anything for granted. For example the text "from Japan", they can easily just write it there. China does lot of good quality stuff too, but usually when you buy cheap, you get the cheap.

Biggest problem with cheap lithium batteries is the protection circuits, or usually the missing of those. For 99.9999% of people it doesn't matter, but the one who shorts the battery for example when the camera goes crazy, the battery can blow up and kill the camera. Not worth the save for me, although would have to be really unlucky for that to happen.

Interesting opinion. I'm sure you know that if I didn't light her with anything and metered on her, then everything else would be completely blown.

Of course.  I'd just wait for better light.  Perhaps a less strong lighting would have been less obvious.

This isn't a knock against you but, I've been told repeatedly that when someone KNOWS what they're doing with flash, you can't really tell they used it.  I've yet to see an example of that myself, but I've had my eyes open for it.  Until then, I prefer natural lighting.

Yep, true. This shot was certain time of day, so either couldn't shoot down towards the water or use flash.

This is an example where I think using flash (or a reflector, or whatever) has made the image look worse.  It's obvious based on the shadow on the ground that this is a back-lit scene, yet there's no shadow on her body indicating this.  It screws with my head and just ruins the image for me.  My brain tells me that there SHOULD be shadows and it WANTS to see shadows, but there are none.


Interesting opinion. I'm sure you know that if I didn't light her with anything and metered on her, then everything else would be completely blown. I don't think that would look better.

"If I were any better on photoshop, I'd clean the background and especially myself out from the mirror glasses :)"

That wish is easily granted. This is full scale so you can copy and paste my crop onto your image and it is done. Happy Christmas   :)

Awesome :)

Which tool(s) did you use? Clone? One day I should learn to do such. I can do some, but anything more difficult will look too obviously photoshopped.

Wasn't really intentional, and not that much bokeh anyway.

I have Sigma 14/2.8

Can't decide if I like or hate it. My friend has one too and he loves it.

For me I don't like IQ below F8, so normal landscape it's fine as you shoot higher anyway. Also it has terrible mustache distortion, and I haven't found correction file to fix it in post. I hear you can make it yourself but I don't know how. This is shooting with FF, both problems are less when using crop.

I might sell this and get the 12-24 or 16-35 or 16-28 or or...

My partner hates it.  Hates the waiting.  Doesn't see the point of driving miles to sit for ages waiting for light, yet insists on coming with me, huffing and puffing.

If your partner doesn't share your passion, then you need room in the relationship to pursue it.  If you can't get that then there are another three billion people to choose from and you need to ask yourself if it is worth being unhappy like this.

Jim

Aren't you being a bit narrow minded there. I'd say it's closer to six billion.


To Paul: People do need space from each other, regardless of ...well... anything. If your other half is not giving it to you, at some point it'll create conflicts.

Everyone is unique, and every situation is unique, so it's tough to give advice on how to proceed there. For me, luckily I have even more passionate hobby than photography (saying after spent 12h this weekend with camera, some 3000 clicks, now working on LR). I do martial arts where we (literally) hit each other on the head with wooden sticks. Man, there's no better way to de-stress. No matter how bad day at office, couple good whacks on the head, and hopefully I can share couple back too, and it's all good again. Same goes for any stress at home or anything, after beating my hobby-buddies with a stick and getting myself beaten too, it's all good again.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: when are the best Sales on 5d Mark iii?
« on: October 20, 2013, 04:11:14 AM »
Bought mine last February with 24-105. Sold the lens (as I already had one), effective price for the body $2500.

It's not the pixel size, it's the total sensor area that gives FF the better ISO performance.  The 5DII and 20D have the same pixel pitch.

So, to answer your question...no.
Hi,
   I had to disagree... the iso performance of the sensor is base on the pixel size and the sensor technology, not the sensor size... 5DII have better ISO performance than 20D is due to the sensor technology and image processing advancement.

  For example, if I crop a 5D3 image to the same size as a crop sensor or I create a crop sensor mask and install in a 5D3 camera, will the iso performance suddenly become bad??

  Have a nice day.

I got butterfly too, unfortunately the bokeh wasn't that good:


I disagree. I think this is a very creative butterfly shot with the balcony and fence nicely out-of-focus with smooth bokeh. Good use of DOF to isolate the subject while still providing a sense of place. Well done.


Thanks. I like the picture, although the bokeh wasn't exactly as I hoped.

That was the coolest place I've been to. Here's another photo from same spot, different lens/angle: http://www.terophotography.com/Pictemp/TERO3439-Edit.jpg

... I just ordered a 16-35L f/2.8 II and a 70-200 f/2.8 II ... What to do of this addiction?

The good news is that those are workhorse lenses and they can earn you money, unlike her shoes (that's right, I thought it, I said it!)  ;D

Depends on shoes...
