So do I man. I am stuck here in MN where I live in the land of the jibbers. That jump was built in a field and the riders were towed in by a winch. Here are a couple of photos.

Sinko, we were up in International Falls. Basically Canada. That is the place where Rathy Cab threed that big rock. Actually a lot of Rathy, Adkinson and Wing's parts were shot up there. <BR> <BR>Walt, I am really jealous about those HDR's. I still have yet to take one. Its driving me nuts. I was going to tonight but the sun went down as I was getting home from a shoot and wasn't able to grab my still camera in time. Maybe soon. <BR> <BR>Jakober, those droplets are awesome! How many lights were you using?

sidekicknicholas 03-07-2008 6:35 PM

WCW, how many different stops did you use for the last shot?... if you remember, if not...no biggie

Walt 03-07-2008 6:37 PM

Nick, <BR> <BR>All the shots were from a single file (One stop) but the winery shot was four different exposures.

sidekicknicholas 03-07-2008 6:44 PM

sorry. thats what i ment, looks great, i would have guessed more than four. thanks!

jjakober 03-07-2008 6:44 PM

bakes5 03-08-2008 6:31 AM

Shot this in a white bowl on my counter with the pop up flash (speedlight ran out of batteries and I am fresh out), 17-55 lens, tripod, release, food coloring, and a syringe with water. <BR> <BR> This is my first attempt and I really don't know anything about drops but here is what I figured out yesterday over the course of about 40 shots. <BR> <BR>Food coloring helps <BR>Fill the bowl as high as you can <BR>Lower angles are better <BR>Most of your shots will suck (unless you have nice triggering equipment) <BR> <BR> <BR>Things I am going to try <BR> -- Clear bowl with a couple of speedlights shooting up the bottom <BR> -- build a laser/sound trigger for the flash <BR> -- Back off and use a zoom to reduce the angle <BR> -- Different liquids (like hot Jello) <BR> <BR>There is a pretty nice gallery on pBase that has some pretty cool ones. <BR> <BR>Bakes

richd 03-08-2008 7:50 AM

Bakes/JJ: Those are awesome! Now all you need is a penthouse in New York to go with it where you can proudly hang the prints! <BR> <BR>Jakober, <BR> <BR>Do you remember what your shutter speeds were? (the exif isn't showing them) and I'm curious how you got the BG above the bowl blue. Did you photoshop those at all? If you didn't that's very impressive! <BR> <BR>Walt, I'm not a big fan of over manipulated images but in the case of your waterfront shots you really made those work. There's a writer of horror novels (can't remember his name at the moment) that uses that kind of look in his illustrations that I immediately thought of when I saw those. <BR> <BR>These threads are getting very entertaining as you guys keep getting more and more creative!

Walt, its the south end of Big Sur, Julia Pfeiffer Burns state park, Mcway falls.

jjakober 03-08-2008 10:47 AM

Guys, <BR> <BR>I don't know if you really want to get started shooting water drops, it's kinda addicting. After you look through 100 plus shots of nothing you will find a few that are OK and then you will want to try again, and again, and again<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/proud.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>Ryan, <BR> <BR>No macro, I used my 18-180 zoomed all the way in. <BR> <BR>Rich, <BR> <BR>Don't know why the Exif isn't showing for you, I use OPanda IExif 2 and can right click the picture and see the exif? The shutter was 1/180th as thats the fastest it will sync with the flash. I rely more on the flash burst to stop the motion, rather then the shutter. No photoshop other then to crop and resize. The blue above the bowl is just a piece of white paper standing up at the back rim of the bowl. The blue color of the photos was actually an accident. I started playing around with the white balance settings on the camera and one of them created a blue cast on everything! So I got lucky and didn't need any food coloring. <BR> <BR>Like Bakes said, lower angles really help keep the entire drop in focus. Here are some I did a while ago at a higher angle and you can see where the tops of the drops are slightly out of focus do to the shallow DOF. <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/87667/554959.jpg" alt="1"> <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/87667/554960.jpg" alt="2"> <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/87667/554961.jpg" alt="3"> <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/87667/554962.jpg" alt="4"> <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/87667/554963.jpg" alt="5"> <BR> <BR>These were taken in a bowl with a red towel sunk in the bottom of it. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by jjakober on March 08, 2008)

Yeah...there's definitely EXIF info in those last few photos. <BR> <BR>I like the details that towel provides.

richd 03-08-2008 7:04 PM

CS3 was showing me everything but shutter speed for some reason. Thanks for letting me know what you used.

bakes5 03-08-2008 9:46 PM

A startrail I screwed up a bit. This shot is 60 30 Second exposures stacked together. I screwed up the exposure by not doing a couple of test shots so everything was about 4 stops underexposed. I salvaged the effect in photoshop but it is still pretty rough. One of the whole points of stacking is to avoid blowing out light pollution...unfortunately jacking around with levels as much as I did screwed that up. <BR> <BR> Anyways, its too late here to try again...maybe I'll try again tomorrow. <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/87667/555184.jpg" alt="Upload">

Walt, <BR> <BR>For the marbles I built a ramp that the marbles roll down and then shoot into the air. I used 1/4sec shutter speed to allow time for the marbles to fly across the frame. I used 1-3 lights hitting the marbles to create the trails and either first or second curtain flash to freeze the marbles.

It's actually not that bad overall, that's a 400 f4 DO IS with Canon 2X TC attached. The combo still weighs a lb less then a 300 f2.8L IS and is about the same length overall. IQ is every bit as good as the other Canon superteles with or without the convertors plus I get AF with both the 1.4 and 2X (which is still f8 because it's an f4 lens). <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/87667/557336.jpg" alt="Upload">

This is from a 5 shot bracket and merged with PS HDR. I handheld it and shot the exposures at 10fps and it looks like they aligned up good in spite of that. I couldn't get rid of the blown areas around the sun however without messing up the rest of it. I guess I should convert the RAW files first and fix that before merging. <BR> <BR>Walt, <BR> <BR>On that shot above what are you getting by using HDR that you wouldn't get from the regular image (I'm assuming the sky?) Can you post the original normal exposure so I can see what the HDR conversion did for that image. <BR> <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/87667/557357.jpg" alt="Upload">

As you can tell by the photo the sun was coming from the side so the hedge was under exposed.The sky would of blown out if I tried to expose the hedge properly.I can get a better overall exposure in some cases. <BR> <BR>If you couldn't get rid of your blown high light areas you probably didn't vary your exposures enough.Are you working with curves or levels ? <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/87667/557387.jpg" alt="Upload">
