    Recent Photo Thread

    Hi there,
    This kind of thread is quite popular on another photo-forum I visit and it works like this:

    Post photos you took recently here!

    Rules:
    - photo must be new (no dumping of old pics)
    - don't post too many, selecting the very best shots is hard but important in photography (I'd suggest a maximum of 2-3 pics in one post)
    - c&c should always be welcome!
    - try to include information about the shot that might be interesting (important camera settings, focal lenght, place the photo was taken, lighting technique, etc.)

    This works well if:
    - you just want to post one pic and don't want to open a new thread just for it
    - you want to browse new content by a lot of different photogs

    good idea and nice portrait Since I seem to be unable to assort some pics for a thread this might work out for me in busy times, too.

    Just for clarification - how new is new? Taken today? Within one week ago? Within one month ago?

    Well, here's one of my cats boiling on the oven. Today.



    Specs: 50 mm lens, f 3,2, 1/50, natural diffuse late afternoon-daylight, iso 1000 - well, it's a personal snap.

    Hiho Nike, nice of you to join me.
    There rly is no hard rules about how new a photo has to be. But I think it's a good motivation to go and take new pics if you can post them somewhere.
    Personally I think that a forum is the wrong place for a "my gallery" kind of post, there are other websties far more suited for this.

    Cute cat
    good selection of DoF and nice light (windowlight is so soft in the afternoon)

    Here is another selfie (I'm trying to abuse myself as a model a little more)
    Gasmask was bought as a party gag and is way too small
    lights: 2 bare flashes slightly behind and to the sides of me 1/8 power, SB-24, 1/250s, f/9.0
    made it more blue (esp in the shadows) in post

    I got to admit I'm not a big fan of gasmask photos, but I rally like the light in this one - it creates some kind of Darth Vader atmosphere

    I had to shoot some (plastercast) Museum pics yesterday, here's one of the more personal shoots I did at the end of the shoots. Lights - we had two strong Walimex daylight photo lamps, a third one would help a lot. Museumlights are not very good, unfortunatley. Used a tripod, too.

    @ mohit826: under the posting field there is a "go advanced" button and there you can find "manage attatchments"
    @ Tempoe: hi there, nice abstract, I think there is more room for experimantation with different liquids, bubblesand different glassen/cups

    shot with my new D7000:
    ISO 6400
    f/1.4
    1/50 s

    ISO 6400 is only usable for web, lots of colour noise
    else it's a great camera

    the burning thing is "Feuerzangenbowle" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feuerzangenbowle

    I need to get my chuff out and about more - this was the most recent photo that I've been happy with. I hope the Flickr link is ok?

    Camera info: Nikon D300s, Sigma 10-20mm Wide angle lens at 11mm. ISO 800, 1.6 seconds exposure at F4.2. It was pretty much hand held resting on a fence rail.

    Sydney Harbour Bridge by Steve ten Have, on Flickr

    As an aside I've been trying to post a 'My Photography' style thread in the "Post Your Photography!" forum but it never seems to appear - any ideas? Loving the work in here though.

    steve - beautiful nightshot, I really live the colors and contrasts! I have no idea, why your thread is not appearing, though. I haven't yet tried starting one myself.
    infinity - really nice result for on-cam flash - the softbox seems to work fine

    Merry christmas and a happy new year everyone! I'd love to see more photos in here, too



    edit, sorry, i forgot:
    ISO 200
    f5,6 1/60
    Nikon cam, 50 mm lens, speedlight + diffusor

    @ steveOBHave: 1.6 Seconds is impressive for handheld, fence or not without a tripod I always seem to get camera shake in those even with a improvised "tripod"
    @ Nike: christmas trees are just another toy for cats aren't they, I think more depth of field would have been nice here so the paws and the eyes are in focus f/8 should have done the trick when working with flash anyways

    here is one of my later pics, I guess a cat got the best of this fella
    It was laying in front of a bank and everyone who wanted to go there had to go past it

    50mm f2.8 1/125s

    I'm working on geting over the "bokeh to the max" stage in my photographers life and try to evaluate how much DoF is good for each Photo

    @ Infinit: That's a really cool photo! DoF looks nice, definitely not overdone. Good contrast.

    Because I'm a klutz and I dropped my Olympus, I had to bum a Canon Powershot SX 130 for this. 15.1, f/4.5 out of a window, overcast sunset after a huge storm.

    I'm a hobbyist at best, but I got what I was after and I like it a lot.

    @WeasleWords: thx, cool seperation of the BG due to the flash
    @Nike: I love bird photos this one is really cool
    @Clockworlives: good shot, I like how the rear and front lights don't intersect

    Now for some of my "recent" stuff:

    the scans of Ektar come out reeeeaaaaly good, no color correction here but if I did correct the WB it would look almost digital but with more dynamic range
    if someone is interesten in 100% scan crops compared to digital or cheaper film just say so
