I'm new here
« on: October 16, 2012, 04:13:47 PM »
I have been a regular visitor to this site and looked through a lot of the photographs. It appears to be a good network for critique and comments. So I decided to make an account and here are a couple of shots of mine.

Welcome.  Nice to see a new poster's first contribution be a photo rather than a whining troll.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys. So far this is by far the best forum I have found in terms of response and friendliness of other users.

@jmphotography, I like the photos. Could you share the setting and technique?

Hi rpt,

thanks for the interest in my work.

For the monkey the settings were:

Canon 7D with 70 - 200 F4 L USM non IS @ 188 mm
ISO 3200
F4
1/500th

Tribal Girl:

Canon 7D with 70 - 200 F L USM non IS @ 113 mm
ISO 1600
F5.6
1/100th

For both images it was a case of a simple black and white conversion. For the monkey I wanted to highlight the leather texture of his face. To do this was a simple case of sharpening and clarity. For the girl I wanted to bring out the texture again in the make up, pulling and boosting the highlights and shadows. I also have a colour version of the girl if you are interested.

Thanks

California Frank

Great first post. Keep posting pics! We've got lens-specific threads, which are great for posting shots. Another fun activity here are reprocessing challenges. There's a bunch of us here who like to get other people's RAWs and have a go at post.

This is by far the best forum I have found, the response rate is incredible!

Here is the colour version of the 'witch doctor' and thanks for the positive comments guys!

@dirtcastle - Thanks for the information on activities, this forum seems to be a brilliant network for some like minded photographers. I'm 19 and was considering studying photography at uni just to get in the right circles of people, but from the sounds of it, there are plenty of peoples brains to pick on here.
