Been a while since I posted in here. Jason, looks like that D7000 is treating you well! I'm hoping to upgrade cameras myself pretty soon, probably a 7D. I do too much high speed low-lighting stuff to be happy with my T1i, especially after shooting with a friend's 1DmkIV and straight 300mm setup . Here's a shot I took of my friend during one of his concerts. you can check out his music at myspace.com/dustinthomas , it's acoustic/soul style music. really good stuff, especially "g.u.t.s." and "fisherman".

Na, I just know your not one to blow smoke up someones ass.
Every time I try it they are just over exposed. I need to understand my camera a little better I guess but I don't even know what I should start at. Just gotta shot more so I get it figured out

Never done those myself, but just use a higher f-stop if you want to shoot those river shots. Correct me if im wrong, joe? It's going to cut down on the light let into the sensor, hence the longer exposure but still correct light for the shot. Like I said, never done it myself so im not exactly sure how big of an f-stop adjustment.
Old    Randy Scagliotti (wakedad33)      Join Date: Oct 2005       11-08-2010, 12:11 PM Reply   
Ben, you really need the slow shutter speed to capture that effect. Also a good tripod and release cord. This is a shot I took a couple weeks ago with my F stop @ 22 and a shutter speed of 1/3 sec. Tripod & shutter release cord.

My bad, I didnt really clarify that part. What I meant was he needs a higher f stop WITH that slow shutter speed. Because I'm guessing what Gravity is doing is using a slow shutter speed, but keeping a low f stop as well. When what he needs is that f22 like in ur photo, along with a 1/3 sec exposure

You guys are tearing it up! Awesome shots. I've been watching these threads for a while but only recently picked up a camera. I've got a ton to learn but feel pretty good knowing I'm at least framing my shots in a way close to what a guy as talented as Joe is doing...I've been playing with some long exposure stuff. More to see on my flickr page. Always open to feedback/constructive criticism! Thanks.

you know of a cool place where there are really cool "fall" colors? i want to shoot my niece and nephew outdoors and thought the "fall" colors would be cool.

Joe... I don't really know of any good fall spots... honestly, it seems like it's been a sort of a lackluster season for really good fall colors. Except in my yard...

but most of these are pretty much on the ground now.

Just messing around with my camera and PS a little bit in my spare time. Photog has been slow for me the past couple weeks. Hoping to do this post-process with an HDR image of my car, once I can find a nice day to do it. Weather here in MN has sucked lately! Anyone else (Umali, Jakober, Rich, etc.) have any shots similar to this?

Finally got a chance to browse through these new pics, Randy love that snowboard shot, but something about the composition is messing with my eyes, I can't put my finger on it. Cool shot though. Rich and Umali, awesome cityscapes. That one of Joe's, the moon coming through the clouds really adds to it. Jjakober, crazy shot as always, well done

And again, the hits just keep coming! So many amazing photos. Way to go everyone!

Another HighSpeed Shot:



Some of you were wanting a more detailed explanation of my High Speed setup and the timing circuit I use. For most of the high speed photos I have posted I rely on the fast burst of light from the flashes to freeze the action, not the shutter speed. That is why it is always done in a dark room. The shutter is open for 1/4-1/3 second, which in high speed photography is quite a long time.

I trigger the shutter with a corded remote, this is done because the amount of time it takes for the shutter to open is longer than it takes for the BB to hit itís target. So I open the shutter and then fire the BB gun. This is where the timer circuit comes in. I use the Camera Axe timing device. It can be purchased as a kit and assembled at home. It is one of the cheaper timing circuits out there, and it was recently updated and the new version looks awesome.

What the Camera Axe does is detect the BB as it leaves the gun using this sensor. I actually built my own specifically for my BB gun. What happens is the BB breaks the IR beam of the first pair of sensors, and then the second pair. The Camera Axe then calculates how fast the BB is traveling, and will delay the firing of the flashes till it has traveled the specified distance.

Once it has, the flashes are fired by the Camera Axe using some Cactus Wireless Flash Triggers. then the shutter closes and the exposure is complete.

Also, the Camera Axe can do so much more then what I described, check out the web site to see all that it can do!

And a quick little "How It's Done" video

Nice Rob, auto or manuel focus? When I shoot this shot seems like I get better results with manual.

Couple from the Cascade backcountry today, snowing and not much light but fun anyway, My thighs were burning hiking in sucks to get old.

Thanks Joe & Jason, agree Joe, I had to talked Alex into taking off his coat for a couple shots, but it was frezzing a$$ cold.

Richard, nice work with the niffty.

Jason, the 50 is fun lens, but save up for the 1.4 the 1.8 really hunts on auto focus, at least my does and I've heard that from a lot of other people.

Got bored tonight so I went and did some long-exposure stuff. First time I've ever really done it with a vehicle, so I don't think they really look the best. Had lighting from a dealership behind me too which kinda sucked :/ Anyway, here's a few.

edit: Man, the quality really goes down on these uploads

Dogs would be a good photo contest thread.

Here is one I really like. I shot this on Sat which was the day before duck season ended using a point and shoot SD880 IS. It was in the 20s and there was fog coming off the water. I did some unusual processing on this one and actually used the NIK Glamour Glow (typically used for Glamour Shots) which has a neat effect on very selective landscape shots.

Looking good so far Barry, the more you shoot them the more you learn Check out this link, Ted Ellis is a pretty hummer shooter, and he post his EXIF data on all his shots, might help with your settings. Happy shooting.

Thanks Randy! I think I'm doing it all wrong. He seems to have his ISO cranked up pretty high and stopped at 6.3.. I'm trying to reduce noise by leaving my ISO at 100-200 and stopping down to 3.2. One of the issues I'm having is the it's been overcast with very poor lighting and the Mark IIn is a bit noisy at higher ISO.. I can't wait until the sun comes out!

Loving the hummingbird shots. My folks have had them on their property in Indiana my whole life. One year, I even discovered a nest. I wish I had owned a camera back then.

As for me, I'm not shooting much these days... at least, not much outside of this little guy:

A rare day around here this winter - no fog! Anyhow this was shot with a Tokina 11-16 at 13mm on my 1DmkIV. The Tokina is designed for 1.6 crop sensors only but I'm finding it's good from 13mm to 16mm given the mkIV's 1.3X sensor. Fairly sharp lens as well and probably the best bang for the buck out there for a super wide.

Rich... nice. I also use the excellent Tokina 11-16 with my 1D4 sometimes. That is a great lens.

Here are some BIF shots from yesterday.

Shot at 1/250th of a second using a handheld 500 f4... thank you IS.
