More night images of London

Here are more from the same camera and same night.
I also included a shot of the students who as you can see were well wrapped up
Trying to let young ones know that expensive camera equipment should not be on show took some doing that night.
I had no flash heads or anything for this kind of shot, so time to see how well the onboard flash could cope with such a group of people.
For reference purposes it's fine but as a photo to print, it fails in every department. Red-eye, half the faces looking at something else. You would soon be on the scrapheap with these kinds of group shots.

You are so right.
I learnt in the days of chemicals and dark-rooms where the chemicals would kill you over time or give you an early life span.

When i started, i thought that manual was the way to go, but these cameras, i use a D90 are to clever for themselves,
i use to do a lot of military planes, been known to spend days up a hill waiting for front liners to come through,
any how what we, well most of us do is go for aperture priority on fast jets and shutter priority for props, for a bit of prop blur for motion,
and some times see how low we can go hand held, in fact i have never used a tripod yet, but think it might be coming soon with the shakes ,
i also think that you should start a thread on basics then intermediate,
will keep you active and busy hey?,
Maybe throw in a bit of a competition ?
bye the way, i know what you mean too, i love my photoshop, currently have CS5,
just learnt about content-aware fill,
Must admit though that i tend to take my Cannon (did i just say that,,, wash my mouth out) Power shot with me nowadays, does it all and doesn't weigh much,
keep up the lectures,
Misty
I brought this post to the front again so I can try to do what you ask and others will hopefully join in.
Your cannon against a Nikon has no test or match.
They are BOTH 100% perfect cameras, regardless of the makers name.


Sadly I cannot teach anymore due to an accident and even here with you all enjoying my images I am struggling to know what I'm doing.
What should take a few mins to come to you can take me a lot of hours.


I can take my 500mm lens down to a 1/30th sec hand held but this will show problems if you took the image beyond 10 x 8.
1/60th sec is the human tolerance, as after that the heart pumping blood etc causes the camera to move too much, even if you try holding your breath.
You will see flash set at this speed although at last the makers have listened and brought this up to 1/250th.


All my photographic life I decided my images have to stand-up to A3 size in print.
Hence on here they may look brilliant but under enlargement you will see a lot of problems.

Why should you have to have an expensive, state of the art, front end camera with all the bells and whistles on.
You can take images on any digital medium these days and this is what I like about the digital age.
It lets those who want to do it not have to worry about a hefty price tag as digital cameras are becoming a mainstream item which are incorporated into so many digital things these days.
The end product is the achievement, the parts before all this are actually not that relevant.

Black and White

Here are more from the folder of this 24 hour try-out of the D80
The folders and image meta-data are dated 2006 so this is when they are from.


Aperture Priority.
DSC_0017.jpg f/8 at 6sec. ISO-200. 26mm
DSC_0022.jpg f/11 at 9sec. ISO-200. 55mm
DSC_0027.jpg f/11 at 10sec. ISO-200. 55mm


I also have images in full auto, shutter priority and manual settings with-in this testing. I should have named the thread simply London.
