I also had my first "gig"! OK, it was for friends of ours. They wanted a picture for their Christmas card. I also didn't take the money.....so I guess it doesn't count. Maybe you wedding or portrait guys can look at my Flickr and tell me what you think!

My first real attempt at a composite shot using multiple photos.

I realize I need to work on my focusing >_>

Gotta get those kids to look at the camera somehow.

I tried my hardest. It just wasn't happening, it was a tough crowd. I think once I get my tripod and remote shutter it will give me a better chance.

The one under the tree is the one of my friends' kids. The little one is the only one not looking. I'll take two out of three!

Really went over board on the saturation, and also try and stay away from heavy vignette's.

Did some post to it, was really hard to match the front hue with the side because of the light.

A couple shots I've come to like quite a bit. I'm still fairly new at it all, but I've done some reading and playing around the house. I think I'm improving but some criticisms are certainly welcome. All editing done with Lightroom.

First couple with a friend's Kodak before I got my camera.

ISO 64
16 mm
f/4.5
1/640
Going off exif, pretty sure the camera was on auto.


ISO 64
16 mm
f/4.0
1/320
Same situation as the other.


The rest are with the t3i I recently got. All manual settings.

ISO 800
45mm
f/5.0
1/125


ISO 800
21mm
f/4.0
1/80


ISO 1600
28mm
f/8.0
1/500


Thoughts or ideas on what I can work on?

I like the last one. It could use some post processing but you're off to a good start!

I think that one is definitely my favorite. I wish I'd had more time at the spot but it was just a random barn off to the side of a small country road by my house. By the time I had taken that and one other not so great shot the farmer that apparently owned the land came out of the woods in hunting gear and didn't look too happy. I wasn't looking to mess with a farmer with a gun so I didn't push for more time when he asked me to leave.

ANYWAYS, back on topic, I tried some processing on it but I'm not sure what else I can do with it. Any tips you're willing to offer?

I was going to say try to straighten it out first but it looks like the barn and car are on such an angle it might look weird if you try to level it out. What do you use for your post processing? I find it hard to try to tell someone how to edit their photos because it's all up to your style and preference. If i was on my computer that had Lightroom on it I could play around with it but it will have to wait until the end of the week.

I have lightroom. I tried turning down the exposure because the sky, and even the roof of the barn were pretty blown out. I also turned up the red to make my mudflaps and the roof pop but it killed the rest a bit. It wasn't great to begin with and it's all I've got from that spot so it may be beyond help.

Those photos are all pretty dark and could use another stop (at least) of exposure.

#1 has trees growing out of the car. Avoid this please.

What are you trying to draw focus to on #2 and #4? On #4 it almost looks like the car is accidentally in a picture of trees.

Settings on #5 is really weird. No reason to shoot at ISO1600 there.

#5 Was a bit of a jump out of car, take picture, get in, and leave. Didn't have a lot of time to play around (see above posts) Probably will go back to that spot eventually.

#2 I was going for focus on the exhaust, wasn't with my camera so it's not as good as I think it would be but I liked the idea.

#4 Not sure really, just liked it for some reason. You're comment does make sense though, I never thought of that to be honest.


Thanks for the input though, any thoughts on 3? That was the one I put the most effort into as far as these ones are concerned.

You usually don't want to point the car out of frame, it looks odd. You got some pretty harsh glare going on. Have you thought about getting a circular polarizer filter?

#3 could definitely use 1-2 stops of exposure. A CPL would do wonders also.

EDIT: Echo on pointing a car out of the frame. It works sometimes. IMO it doesnt work here.

I was looking at them last night. I had a tiffen for like 20 bucks on amazon I was looking at. Anything wrong with that one or are there others I should consider?

Where should I be looking? I just can't see spending the money on the Canon CP for as much as I'll use it. Any other brands to consider? Sorry I'm a total noob when it comes to all of this.

Another non-Automotive from one of this weekend's gigs.

5DIII 50L 580EXII
ISO200 1/80 f/1.2 FEC-1


Vivy & Ed by Khanh Duong | KHDPhoto.com, on Flickr

f/1.2 is high risk, high reward. Shooting that moment at f/1.2 was risky but man was I rewarded.

From the article
Quote:
Tiffen UV – were no better than good quality window glass. It is cruel to say but true. During our testing we put a piece of regular glass and a very worn out lens from our colleague’s reading glasses in the spectrophotometer to compare the results. As far as the light transmission is concerned the old reading glass lens was much better than all three filters, and the regular window glass wasn’t much further behind. Too bad…
Youre much better off not using a filter at all.

I don't have luck shooting at 1.8 sometimes but man 1.2 is razor thin DOF. Nice pic! I would love to be able to produce that kind of photo one day.
