Street & City / Re: Street Candid Portraiture

thanks Guys :)

Great series indeed.
I see you took also a photo sitting on a bike. Do you snap away or ask permission? If so, what is your experience with the first reaction?



If you mean in pic FQ2A6344 ? I think Dan is centre picture in reflection, the technique is interesting and requires a lot of practice I'd have thought.

Dan, do you go round with a group of friends I've often thought that would make street 'easier' as a beginner?

Regards


Oh, you maybe right if he is walking sidewards and holding the camera hip height
I tought the person on the bike is holding the camera. Looks like

Lenses / Re: Is This a Canon EF 11-24 f/4L?
« on: September 17, 2014, 06:00:14 AM »
Could be real.
It makes sense to give the 16-35 f/4 IS next to a 11-24 f/4 (non-IS and extra 5mm at the wide-end) so there is for both space in the line-up
Maybe photoshop experts can do an analysis?...

Greater Yellowlegs - Martha's Vineyard

A local saltwater pond and marsh was the temporary home for about 45 Yellowlegs. Visited the pond in late afternoon.
Had fun navigating low tide obstacles while fighting currents and wind to take some closeups in my kayak. Half the fun was the challenge. My trusty old 60D and 100-400mm recorded some nice images for my collection.


Jeff, as usual: wonderful!

Shot last week with EOS M and 18 55 kit lens @ 55mm F.10 in the middle of the day at Old San Juan El Morro Fort. Only a few feet away from this guy.

Did you crawl together? Very nice photo!

Yes, not really sharp in focus. I don't have much experience in BIF but the eagle was taken with single AF point and not AF expansion. Is that common?


Looks to me sooc too. And, a tad better than my old 7D.

Hi Folks.
If you don't have Lightroom, or maybe even if you do have a look at this utility,
I use it following it being recommended here I think, it will display the info in graph form so you can easily see the ranges you use most, (of just about everything, not just focal length) which may be more use than querying above a certain number?
I have just copied the bit from google, for the info, best of all it is only small < 700kb when I downloaded it a couple of versions ago.
Downside? Windows only!

ExposurePlot
www.vandel.nl/
From this site you can download Wega2 the digital image viewer and ExposurePlot the focal length, ISO, aperture and shutterspeed analyzer for jpg files.
‎Exposureplot - ‎Wega2 - ‎SaveIt - ‎CaptureLens


Cheers, Graham.

If you have Lightroom (and some other programs), you can set a filter to see what focal length your entire library of photos is at; see what percentage of your photos are greater than 250mm focal length to get an idea how many you'd need to crop on full frame to get the same picture.  You can do the same with ISO to see how many you need ISO higher than 1600-3200.



Thanks Graham, very usefull tip. Nice to see the statistics of all photos in a specific folder.

EOS Bodies / Re: How can we improve on 5D3 to 5D4?
« on: September 17, 2014, 03:52:06 AM »
Much similar to what others already expressed:



1. AF point illumination during AI Servo
2. EOS iTR
3. Reduction of noise in higher ISO than current in 5D MK III
4. EC when using auto ISO in manual mode
5. Slightly higher megapixel up to max. 24
6. USB 3.0
7. Dual CF (CFast support) - I don't use the sd it all :-(
8. Higher frame rate up to at least 8fps
9. More dynamic range
10. Shutter durabillity 300,000
11. Improved quality of joy-stick (no chance it will fall off!)
12. Built-in GPS (I now have the GP-E2)


What I really like to have is the automatic AFMA adjustment in camera upon attaching the Canon lens to Canon camera (with zoom lenses in minimal 2 positions - wide and end)

Photography Technique / Re: Is RAW worth it?
« on: September 10, 2014, 01:05:23 AM »
RAW only. I regret that I did not start earlier than 2009. Having a lot of photos JPG only. I am much better with development photos today than in the past. Looking back on those JPG there is just a little more that can be improved. Development cost time. But I got that routine now. Returning home I first mark the photos with stars (1- not good, 2-good but not worth it, 3-good candidate, 4- very good / choice. I never give 5) Then I focus on the 3 and 4 stars. Checking exposure, WB, contrast, highlights, noise reduction, saturation and more. I use DxO Optics Elite icw Filmpack for special presets (for example Black & white). And I use Lightroom 5 also with add-ons that come with presets for effects. So yes, it cost time. But hey photography is fun...isn't it? !
