I usually never do any post processing... Im looking for some opinions on this one.
Looks good. Dislike the black shadowing in the corners though.
What's with all the vignetting lately?
I added the vignetting because I felt that the dull surroundings really took away from the truck. I wanted to focus more attention away from the elderly walkers, rednecks, and dull gray buildings.
Here is the original.
Wats with all the vignetting hate lately?
I like it though reducing the vignetting some would probably make it better.
the original has some as well, how odd
What I would have done if I were you would be to shoot closer/tighter with a deeper depth of field. That way your dull surroundings turn into a nice bokeh.
To emphasize a subject, I like it.
I like this idea
I guess it just seems to be getting a little bit overused ...I may be wrong.
Thats a typical flaw with that lens. Wide open at 18mm with a 18-135
I was limited.. I couldn't get any closer with out putting my shadow over the truck. Plus the lens in this situation limited my dof isolation.
Ive been challenging myself lately to try and score good shots with the shittiest lens I have.
If you're trying to do that, then you need to work around the things that are limiting you e.g. shoot at a different time of day so your shadow doesn't get in the way, wait until the people walking by are no longer in the shot.
You can try doing some artificial DOF work too
just kinda boring to me. and i don't like the vignette
shoot at 50-70mm next time, at 18mm your DOF will always be really large, no matter your aperture
I was thinking the same thing. Something more like this. 2 min chop but you get the idea
The original > that ^
Why does everyone always insist on as shallow DOF as possible
from what i've seen so far you mostly shoot landscapes which obviously wouldn't benefit from shallow dof, but to set the subject apart from the distracting background like this guy wants to do using a shallow depth of field is probably the best method.
Wrong1, if you're going to add a vignette to it, PP it some more to make it look like lomo photography. I think with your subject being an older vehicle it will turn out pretty cool.
Edit: Here's a quick example of what I'm talking about...
The chrome rims kinda take away from it though
Agreed, but there is this thing called "too much"
But that "too much" doesn't apply to vignettes?
I kind of like the look of that... What prog, and what did you do in pp?
I did a quick 45 second shop on it...if you take your time you can make it look a lot better.
