Took your advice and tried some rolling shots the other day. Some were with a circular polerizar some with just a UV filter.





...and as everryone has been saying, panning is hard. Especially at night!

Default I got a question.

I got a question. Here's a semi night shot I took last year. I'm wondering how to improve on night shots with what I have:

I have a Canon Rebel G 35mm with 28-90mm lense, a 19-35mm wideangle lense and tripod. Also an HP Photosmart 6.2 megapixel digital.
Since I have no idea how to change speeds, apetures, exposures or photoshop...
1) what should I do besides eventually learning all these?
2) any modes on the 35mm I can use while learning those?
3) any point and shoot tips for the digital?


thanks!

Well, if I remember correctly, you should have a good number of different modes on your Canon Rebel G, so you can experiment with those for sure. It should also be pretty easy to figure out how to change your aperture, shutter speed, etc. Granted, being 35mm you don't have luxury of taking a photo and seeing how it comes out right away, but the same exact rules still apply. After all, the digital SLRs carried all their same functions over from the standard film SLRs. Same tips apply to your point and shoot as well, especially when it comes to composition and lighting. You should have a way to turn off your flash...the only challenging thing on your point and shoot is figuring out your shutter speed and exposure.

I'd say the bottom line is to learn all the functions of your two cameras so you know how to change settings and such quickly. Once you know where everything is, you shouldn't have any problems with the rest

How do you guys decide what ISO to use? and Which f-Stop/Shutter Speed combo to use (Since there can be multiple combos which allow the same amount of light in)

the different combos you would use to take pictures will vary depending on what effect your looking for. but if your shooting cars, its a good idea to try and keep it on iso100 at all times. dont want to get screwed with noise in the images (unless your going for the noise, some people like that look.) best thing to do, is to learn your camera to see how it is going to react to different settings, or how aperture will effect dof, shutter, yada yada.

check this out, both are pretty much the same image, with only one setting changed. same exposure when done. but you can tell that they look different. the only thing done to these pictures was a little sharpening/cropping/color correction. i did use my flash, but this image is more to show what you can do by changing only one setting.



and yes, i broke out my initial d cars.

That has got to be one of the best lessons that I have read on composition and photography!
I agree the tripod is super important.

Wow, this thread has been really helpful.

I only have a point and shoot as of now, Sony DSC-P200, but I've been looking to get a nice entry point SLR, as my P200 has a giant crack in it and will fall apart soon. Any ideas for a nice entry SLR camera? (digital obviously)

Here are some of my favorite shots that I've taken, all point and shoot.

Read the write up and thought I would go and take some. This one is on a bit of an extreme angle but I really like how it turned out.

Also, I am getting some grain in the shots. How would I go about fixing this?





Comments please!

Comments please!
The extreme angle is a bit extreme for my tastes, plus it's such a tight shot that I feel a little cramped. As for grain, that's noise from your camera. The way to solve this is to shoot at a low ISO and/or use a program like Noise Ninja to help get rid of it.

Also, be mindful of your surroundings...the sign in the background looks like it's growing out of the sunroof

I think a key part of what's making the exposure tough with this one is the time of day that you shot it. I can see there's a pretty bright spot on your front bumper, most likely from the sun? I'd say wait a few hours until close to sunset, then shoot with a tripod.

Not sure if it's been mentioned, but for those of you who are new to doing crops and frames, be careful about how close you're getting to your subject... leave some space for your subject to "breathe". I used to do this a lot.

I see a lot of pictures where the crops are within a pixel or two of (or sometimes touching/overlapping) the subject, which just makes things feel really cramped/tight. There is a time and place for everything, but for the most part, it's good to give your subject some room.

I know this isn't a car, but it's just a quick example:

400mm @ f/5.6, ISO 100:

I'm so sorry, please forgive me - but by crops and frames - what exactly would the crop be?

I know cropping the photo as in section selection and resizing, but not in regards to framing and bordering.


I'm learning a lot here and am grateful - so I really am appreciating you guys sharing your wisdom ^_^

framing or cropping can be within the viewfinder of the camera or in post process..

i.e. seeing how close the helicopter is; there is aleast 60px of backround on all sides of the helicopter.

you can play with it, tight/closer more centered images, or shots which have a hierarchy of visual influence.. like this
