My very first Digital Grin posting, taken with my just purchased Sony Alpha a100... my very first DSLR.
Many thanks Nikolai for this great idea, I for one can use all the help I can get!
Bronx Zoo Bamboo
Thanks! I see not only Simi Valley has the bamboo forests:-) (I posted a shot earlier).
And yours is actually taller and thicker than our local variety. I wonder if it's the different brand of bamboo or ours is simply too young?
I'd also humbly suggest some Anti-PF treatment. It takes just a few seconds in PS with no additional s/w to purchase..
PF? Sorry, I'm new to some of the abbreviated terminology. I can only assume it has to do with that terrible hot spot right in the middle of the shot; I had no idea that was there until I got home (the camera picked up way more light than my eyes did, apparently). Not totally sure how to reduce that without affecting the whole image.
It's a particular representation of a more general color distortion, usually referred to as CA (Chromatic Aberration).
PF usually happens when a camera encounters a high contrast areas on a small, finely shaped subjects, such as when you shoot towards a bright sky through the foliage. But virtually any high contrast border can produce some.
It really depends on the lens quality and how sensor treats those high contrast areas. Sony's 828, which I owned at a time, although being a very nice P&S with a high quality CZ optics, was notoriously bad about PF.
Ah OK, that makes sense. It's funny, because I had this picture in PS and was ready to attack it (the blues/violets) with the Hue/Sat tool, but I figured I would just leave it alone unless someone said something about it. That didn't take long, haha.
you mean something to get me out shooting more
i'm all for it...
stand by... working on something as I type
Thanks a lot Nik
But hurry up - I already have assignments themes planned at least until XMas, and it's only one week per theme... Next one starts tomorrow
Glad you joined!
Not New, but fittng, maybe??
Straight Lines and Curves - and in color too for our Sony friends
And Curves in Black and White in color
Can you figure out what it is?
Tiki torch? Basket?
Dunno, but it looks good and fits nicely!
I am always trying to improve my technique, so I'll try to particpate as time permits.
Here is the first thing I saw that struck me as simple geometric shapes. Here are 2 photos of my PODS container.
Just like real class. Sneaking in just before the bell rings!
Count me in I am looking to learn. This will be my first photography class- ever!
Squares, Curves that make circles and an Octogan to boot.
Nice work, thank you!
Shapes from Back Bay.
Just back in commission after returning from a week in the SF Bay Area. This forum is just what the Dr. ordered. Great idea. Thanks.
