  • Posted on: Using Cheap IKEA Lights For A Photography Shoot That Won't Break The Bank

    This one is even brighter but has fewer large leds behind a yellow " sun light " filter.

    Here is the Two pound$ led light and I hope you can find them where you live. TG

    Holding similar led torch in left hand and Pentax Ks2 in right hand.
    So easy to get many variations just by moving the light a little. This 24 led array came with 3 AA batteries. TG

    I enjoyed this interesting story and ideas. In the same theme, I discovered $2 to $4 [ one and two pound ], led lights at the dollar store and was pleased with the daylight temperature of these low cost lights. They made a world of difference in macro coin and flower images. I couyldn't believe this surprising bargain. TG

  • Posted on: Stately Home And Castle Photography Tips

    Lighting quality and angle are most important for stonework and feature relief. Long light, [that is dawn or dusk], will always enhance quality and colour for old castles, churches and monuments.

    The sad part of most old church and castle images is that they are so often taken mid morning or afternoon when light is flat or too harsh. That's when most people are touring after a good breakfast or lunch. Earn your breakfast. Take the castle and cathedral images first during early long light. Then enjoy breakfast.

    You can imagine how much better old church and gravestones look when the light casts long shadows and warmly accents the stone and brickwork textures and the window and door frames. TG

  • Posted on: Tamron SP 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD review

    I have used the Tamron 70 - 300 for about one year for birds. Recently i paid three times the Tamron price and bought a Canon 70 - 300mm f4 is L lens.

    Well let me assure you that I now realize how good the Tamron really is. The Tron 70 - 300 is a keeper. In many ways almost as good as the costly Canon 70 - 300mm.

    The Canon is weather sealed and does focus more quickly for flying birds, however the Tamron is much closer in quality that I ever suspected. This has been my personal experience using the Canon T2i camera or the 550D as it can be named in Europe.

    Compare photos from both on PhotoTonyG.blospotDotCom. I like Tamron. TG

    Ah-ha;..I suspected as much. Wondered why your Eastern Yellow Robin was not gettin the notice it deserved and it is because you are new and not discovered yet. A little patience and your photos will get the support they deserve. Welome...Tony [TG]

    This portrait collection of yours is priceless. In fact you could sell it to National Geograp[hic or Canadian Geographic especially if you find out they may be doing a special on India. ' Personality of India '...TG

    Welcome to ePZ Jovy. It takes time to be discovered here, so normally your wonderful photograph ' Castle for Mary ' would get Awards and more votes. As time goes by you will get ' discovered ' and votes will get better. TG

    Saw your comment on Mike Smith's bullfinch. Quote ' ..wish I have the equipment & patience to venture into this aspect of photography. SmileSad '.
    You can get the bird reach you need with the 16X Leica lens on the Panasonic FZ1000. Around $700 or less refurbished. Refurbished is usually a like new return or ' open box '. Like new at half the cost. Save your money. Never pay new prices again. I like your classic high quality portraits. TG

    I agree with Isabel. Your careful sense of image and composition prove no Luddite made these images. social networking is often a time hog. I do very little of it and never key in sensitive data to the net at all. You are wise to choose to refrain. Your portraits are really good. TG

    This is so outstanding. Leads me to think you may be an arts scholar. Every image is profound. A pleasure to peruse. TG

    You, Paul, seem to be a careful craftsman with the camera. A high standard is very evident. So many fine wings in butterflies, birds and bugs. A pleasure. TG

    Some very good images Chinga. A hint about lenses... Before I decide to buy any lens, I check here first.

    You have a good eye and broad interests. Images are different and show insight. I also have an eagle on a mast yet yours is better with the wings spread out like that. TG

    How come I missed all this? Addictive collection to sift through and I am enjoying very much. Been north but not to your magic land. Always liked points north. Churchill Manitoba, Resolute Bay, Greenland, Elsmere Island. The land of sharper contrasts. Beautiful. TG

    Wow!... Those Red Kite shots are super. Well all your birds are nicely cropped and looking good. You sure don't need any advice from me. I'm quite often sloppy but have switched from medium Jpeg to high-quality Jpeg so detail should improve. Maybe I will use a tripod soon. I hear that helps. TG

    I see that you are a careful image maker. Each one seems a gem. My PF will give you quantity. Lucky if you see a gem or two. I remember seeing that steely 4 eyed spider of yours some time ago. Your images MUST be good if they stick in MY memory. That green heron brought me here. I had an opportunity to get many snaps this July. They are so elusive normally. You had some stealth to get that crisp close, I suspect. TG

    Hello Mya. Thanks for taking notice of several of my images. I had no idea you were so young.
    Your work is very advanced for one so early in life. Photography is a valuable skill to have. You
    have ability in spades so be sure to continue even through difficult times. TG

    Giraffes and elephants are great yet your confronting sea turtle I enjoyed your work. Got an idea or two as well. is the character I like best. I know, there is no accounting for taste. TG

    Looks as though you have an interest in moths and butterflies Impressive Quality!. I don't know who is an insect specialist here on ePZ so I hope you could have a look at Bug Troubles just uploaded. Not very pretty, yet so curious there was no choice but to post it. TG

    There is plenty here that is pleasing. You and I seem to embrace variety. Your eye and composition skills are working very well. Good work. TG

    For a beginner you are doing very well. You clearly know how to crop and compose well too. I remember commenting on a few of your images, but I miss so many as time often fails to allow more commenting. I'm in Courtenay on Vancouver Island. A fairly good place for marine birds in migration. Just uploaded a Murre..[I'm guessing, he's in moult], Wonder where you are? This EPZ site is certainly an enjoyable photo zone. You are doing well and I see you have marine scenes too. TG [Tony]

    Cheeky as they come is just brilliant! I like your dogs, especially the huskies. Your standards are high so you have plenty of winners here. I'm a little more snap happy. I do have variety though. You are doing very well. No wonder you enjoy photography. TG

    Your images are carefully taken and presented. Leaning towards professional standards. You tackle anything and come up smiling every time. I make no effort to be so exact and am an unapologetic amateur. There is always the chance I'll make a really good image from time to time. Your beautiful steam machine is great. I will upload a similar vintage tractor. However, while it runs smoothly on gas and oil it is rust from stem to stern. High angle on your B&W tram is fine work too. TG
