Diffused is hard to come by outdoors when shooting on my own at this time of day
Having said that, this series is intended to give an impression of the people using the free dog doctor care - and considering an project I had as a template, any shots of mine make the model look way, way too good already :-p
I've also mulled over taking the shot with a small aperture... waiting till the subject is away... turning the focus to manual so it doesn't shift, and the opening the aperture wide... And then placing them in the bokeh filed image with Photoshop.
You would need a tripod of course.
I've thought about this... but I don't think it is an option I can use with my body's firmware.
Shoot two images onewide open and the other at f8 in quick succession... then over lap then in layers in Photoshop and just make the dog in focus...
I think it would look strange at really large print sizes, but at calendar size, it would go unnoticed.
I probably should read the manual, but I don't think any bodies are set up for that type of on the fly automatic adjustment.
My 100L with f2.8 produces a way too thin dof wide open.
I always end up shooting @f9-f11 for safety which kills the bokeh and has a distinct mobile phone look (well, my lens is white). Since I like the compression I'm usually using 100-200mm with my 70-300L.
I wonder how many professional photographers truly enjoy photography?
this past winter i refurbed a polaroid 180 so that i can shoot with it for fun. for me, polaroid pack film captures the "magical" experience of film photography without the hassles of roll film.
The Impossible Project has once again pulled off a minor miracle & designed & built a new Polaroid instant camera this year (thanks in part to Kickstarter).
The Impossible Instant Lab converts iPhone images to Polaroids. There's a shop close to me where I've seen it at work, & it's the real deal. I sincerely hope that this thing will enable them to scale up to where they can sell their film for less than two bucks a shot.
Shake is quite random, but with the resolution of modern digital FF you really need to be in the region of 2x focal length.
for example national geographic. I was going to enter the travelers competition with some street pics from South America. Problem, I didn't obtain any signed releases. -______-
Lawyers spend a lot of time trying to understand the ambigiously and sometimes contradictory legislation on this issue. Many of the laws are vague and, post 911, can be interpreted far stricter than in other times. Unfortunately, the courts have been inconsistant in their rulings on many cases.
I'm a bit puzzled why you started an otherwise informative and enlightening post with such a condescending beginning.
