  • Flower Girl

    Hi Both, Thank you for your coments
    The photo was taken with a Nikon D200 using a Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Lens
    f/11 1/500sec ISO-400.
    This was taken at my neighbours christening party and this little girl was very camera shy. every time she saw me and my camera she covered her face so I was lucky to get this shot.
    Thank you for your Mods Willie they are very good love the skin tones you have achived with them Smile
    Once again thanks for your coments they are very much apreciated.

  • experimenting with lights

    Thank you for the comments: Willie I love your mod.. I had this arranged in a softbox and had a daylight lamp at the side edge, the box was positioned under the ceiling spots and dimmed half way. This was a first attempt at still life photography and throughout the evening I took quite a few pictures moving the light around and different levels of light on the dimmer. It was really interesting to see how different the same shot looks just by moving the light source. I must confess I had my camera set on auto so my next step will be changing the settings and working more manual. I was using an 18-105 VR lens and yes had it on a tripod using an off camera shutter release. I dont have any prime lenses just 2 at the moment the other one I have is the 70-300 VR.
    Thank you for the coments I have written down your recomendations ready for my next session

    Quote:Hi Margaret.. She is very pretty i cant understand why you would need to cover anything up, but there is software out the to try.Portrait Professional 9 is a good bit of kit and a piece of cake to use.Link at bottom of page. Did you take this hand held as the subject is out of focus. The use of a tripod will help a lot. lighting always a bunus and reflectors. Try placing the subjects by windows with plenty of light. Always check the background making sure no objects are seen in the shot i.e chairs/ornaments/doorways/ pictures etc. Hope this helps.

    Thank you for the comment, on this occasion the camera gave the settings, I had just recived my new lenses that day and was really only trying them out to see what they could do,
    I will certainly look more at shutter speeds as looking at your mod I can see how much better a little more light brings. I dont look at the histogram. I really am not sure what this is or how it works, I have only had this camera 3 weeks and have a lot to learn about it. my D70 was stolen in may and I have only just had the insurance settled.
    Once again thank you for your help with this it will definatly help my future efforts.

    Thank you both for the comments, I see what you mean by cropping. I have only just got photoshop as I have only just began taking photo's with an SLR camera (1 month) still learning about how to use the camera so will have to take some of my shots into photoshop and have a seriouse play!! Thank you Lynne for the modification it looks fantastic now. I will now explore how you put the frame and title around it.

    Thank you for your comment Martyn, it had been a lovely week, then on the wednesday when we went to Cheltenham it was very dull overcast and a few spots of rain. This was the first day I really messed with settings on my camera I have only had it a month and done most of my shooting on auto settings. So I rampped up the shutter speed to try it out and see if i could get a clear shot. I was pleased with the result and will try different approaches as I read more of the manual Smile
