to the last picture? as a noob in the photography crew can you clue me in on some tips or post settings.
Cannon 300D lens 75-300mm
I let the camera do the work, it's smarter.
First F14 1/1250
Second F11 1/1000
Third F10 1/1000
Last F4.5 1/125
Takes lots of frames, be careful looking through a telephoto at the sun.
Motivation to creativity.
I like your fix.
why do noobs always concentrate on settings? I think its more important to have an eye for something that will make a good picture.
because we are noobs and need to know how to run these megacams
I think the second is the best out of them
understanding what the camera is doing gives people a better sense of how they can make the shot better. being able to manipulate the settings to get the optimal shot makes you feel more in control of the output too.
Mechanics of anything you do are important, but creating art, no matter the medium is a matter of heart. It is much more than an eye for something that will make a good picture. It is paying tribute to something, a moment, you are given. My belief about photography is that if I were to stop and fiddle with adjusting this or that, I may loose that moment, and have, in fact, lost too many. It must be second nature. As fast and natural as picking up a paint brush.
I have a lot to learn about mechanic's, for now I work with what I know.
I saw that wisp of clouds behind the treeline, from inside. Ran out, sans tripod, because as many sunsets as I've taken of that treeline, I've never seen it, exactly like that.
Yes by all means learn to use your tools to their full potential, but never loose sight of the moment.
