Title: The Photography Thread
Post by: mitch on May 31, 2012, 09:09 AM
Since there are several talented photographer's around the board I figured we could have a common place to dump images.  They don't have to be car related, but doesn't matter either way.  :banana:

Post by: mitch on May 31, 2012, 12:48 PM
Yea, basically everything I shoot sees some sort of post-processing, either Lightroom or Photoshop depending on how much work I plan on putting in.

For example here's a finished image:
(http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5296/5583981120_76a841302d.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/mitchasham/5583981120/)

This is what came out of my camera:
(http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5258/5590895844_0961d33669.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/mitchasham/5590895844/)

As for any landscape work, I always shoot HDR (High Dynamic Range), which involves shooting 3 or more photos at varying exposure levels to capture the full range of tones in the image, then I blend them together in either Photoshop or Photomatix. 

My reason behind it is, when I get to the location I plan on shooting I intend to capture it as I see it, and being that the human eye has a better dynamic range than a camera sensor you've got to improvise to capture the same thing you're seeing.

What features are you looking for? I have a Nikon D7000 and my favorite features are the top LCD screen, in-camera time lapse, and 720p video @ 30fps.

I would recommend using or borrowing a friend's camera to see how you like it, then you can determine if you want an entry level or something higher up. That way you won't be wanting to upgrade after a month, haha

Truth be told, as long as it has manual settings to it any camera is capable of great photography.  You can even manage some great shots with a phone camera when supplied with the right lighting.

Could look into a compact camera system (ie. Micro four thirds cameras), like the Nikon J1, or Olympus PEN.  They're slightly larger than a P&S, but much smaller than an DSLR, and still have the option for interchangeable lenses.

If you're set on a DSLR look into either the Canon T3i, or Nikon D3100.  Go to a store, play with them, see which one you like better, they'll both take fine images, it's more about which menus and button layout you find easiest to work with.

Most importantly is taking the time to read and learn how to use all the options a DSLR will give you.  There are plenty of people out there who buy a DSLR and their photo's don't improve because they just don't know how to use on.

I have a Canon G11, which is slightly bigger than a DSLR and
A Nikon D7000 also.

I do use them both, but I use the Nikon more.

Most of my images are either un-touched, or very lightly touched for contrast/brightness
I believe in the natural aspect of taking a photo, and often shoot in film.
Digital; Pentax Kx DSLR and Pentax K5 DSLR, Film; Regula Citalux, Diana F+, Canon T75 SLR, and various pinhole cameras.

Merged with existing thread.

Your shutter speed is too low. You want it at around 1/60 at this focal length, to do this you can crank up your ISO, crank down your aperture to the lowest value (3.5 at 18mm for your 18-70) and you can even play with exposure compensation, especially if you're shooting in RAW.

If you have no idea what I just said I have some nice photography books you can buy ;)

Agreed, for the most part.  I only use S when I know where need my shutter speed has to be for certain shots... aka autocross/hooning/etc.
Title: The Photography Thread
Post by: Shaun on January 03, 2013, 02:28 PM
I still leave it on A. That way I don't waste time trying to get the correct exposure and end up missing the shot!
Title: The Photography Thread
Post by: Eden on January 03, 2013, 04:23 PM
For the above low light shots, it's important to recognize the scene and subjects are stationary...  A steady hand is great, practice and technique help, but for stationary macro-type shots, just use a tripod.  Simple, yet time-tested and effective.  Keep your ISO relatively low to keep the "noise" down, use an aperture that gives you the focus depth you need for your subject, shutter speed will affect ambient light/colour that ends up in the picture.  You can also use full manual on a controlled shot like that because your subject isn't going anywhere, so it's a good place to practice with all 3 components of your exposures. 

Edit: On my above food macro shot, I admit I cheated without using a tripod.  Good light and a stabilized macro lens are wonderful things, and I was too hungry to set it all up :P

If you can afford it, step up from the 18-55 useless junk lens and get the 18-105. http://www.henrys.com/70219-NIKON-D3200-BLACK-W-18-105VR.aspx

D3200 would be more than good enough.

18-105mm lens has more range (zoom) than the 18-55mm lens.
Title: The Photography Thread
Post by: Shaun on January 03, 2013, 06:30 PM
^ exactly.

Basically, the 18-105mm gives you 50mm of extra zoom compared to the 18-55mm. And the image quality from the 18-55 is meh. Get the 18-105 and don't look back.

My favorite lens. I use it 70% of the time. It is a prime lens so it does only have 1 focal length (35mm) so you have to walk around more than if you had a zoom lens.

Alright got the D3200 with a 35/1.8 and the 18-55 for free, so whatever. Ill probably just use the 35mm for the time being and grab a 105 down the road. Is there any kind of kijiji market for an 18-55? or is it pretty much included with every camera?

Ive sold a few on ebay.. They never clear $120 though.

I personally use.
2x canon t2i bodies(1 gripped)
Canon 50mm f1.4
Canon 70-200 f4
Sigma 10-20mm f3.5
Plus flashes, wireless triggers etc

But i mainly do videography. So i have got a crap load of dslr video equipment. Tripods, shoulder rig, glidecam, and my new konova slider rig should be in soon!

Probably picking up the canon 6d body for my wife once its out .

Congrats! You'll be pretty limited with the 35mm so the 18-55 will be good when you need those wider shots.

That tripod dolly works splendidly!  Very nice look to the motion.  I'll have to get one of those dollies and a video head so I can better use my nex-vg20.  It would probably come out sick.  Also, for f1.4 manual focus, the most practical way to get precise focus is really the focus indicator.  Less eye strain and time than trying to do it by "eye."  Full frame makes it even harder.

Thanks, I tried looking for a focus indicator but couldn't see it, I'll have to play with it a little more.

I know you're probably getting sick of my pictures of fish, and Declan, but that's all I've got to practice with right now.

This is from today, I tried using the ISO at 400 and the aperature at 3.5 (As low as it goes).
I also tried using my other lense, pretty cool.
The "normal" lense I've been using is 3.5-5.6/18-70 0.38m/1.3ft macro, the last shot I took was with the 4.5-5.6/75-300 1.5m/4.9ft macro. I'm gonna take some shots of my fish with the 4.5-5.6 in a little bit.

Sorry for the crappy picture.. I took a picture of it with my crapberry haha.. Didn't feel like grabbing my digital.


Just figured out how to get the battery out haha xD I'm going to go by either Don's or Henry's tomorrow on my way home and grab a new battery..

Fort Garry Hotel

Inside the VIA Rail Station, when you look up in the main foyer.  Yeah.  That.

Winnipeg Union Station (http://www.flickr.com/photos/dtiderman/8504423991/) by Darcy Tiderman (http://www.flickr.com/people/dtiderman/), on Flickr

I couldn't seem to get this right for the life of me.  This is the entrance of the VIA station, but I tried different shutter speeds, different aperature, even adjusted the ISO.  Couldn't seem to tone down the harsh light in the middle and let more light from the sides and foreground in.  Suggestions ?

Great pics!
Couple things to consider,
Watch where and how pictures are cropped/framed. The first picture of the Fort Garry Hotel feels tight.

For union station you could take several pictures with different shutter speeds and merge them together

Yeah, that shot though I had my back against a wall.  My lens isn't very wide, but I felt if I didn't have that amount of zoom, that I would be missing detail when I was to crop it.  I'll definitely keep that advice in mind though!  Especially about merging the shots.

Yeah, I originally had the circle centered, but decided maybe an offset worked better.  I guess I was just keeping in mind a piece of advice I've heard, keeping the target in one of four corners of the photo is more visually appealing.  I'll have to experiment the next time I go for a few pictures for sure !

Thanks for the input guys !

oh, ya, forgot this C&C the first time...  nothing irks me more in architecture pictures, when it's not dead-ass symetrical.

re: train station entrance, check the balcony things. left side it crops off RIGHT AT the edge of the opening. Right side there's a LOT more shown here (even a light), that isn't shown on the left side.
personally, i woulda cropped the right to match the left, if that's how you framed the shot to begin with

These are some shots from a deconstruction project I did in Virden. We took down the old WWII airplane hanger to repurpose the large timbers.

These were all shot with my Pentx KX on ILFord 3200ISO Film.

Just finished my first roll of film.. Going to drop it off tomorrow after work to be developed.

For some reason it wouldn't wind all the way into the canister :\ About 3" is sticking out. Shouldn't affect any of the pictures I took though, if it did, I would be surprised.

Seems like I've been primarily using my camera at night, so I might throw some 800 asa in for the next roll, instead of the 400 I've been using.

Well using my super powerful awesome Google Picasa, I...

Shot up highlights more to bring in more light,
Shot up shadows more to darken it a bit, but still leave it brightish
Saturated the color a little more to make er pop.

Most of the preperation for the photos was just taking them with a bit higher ISO and longer shutter speed to capture a lot of light before editing.  Just the idea I had in my head.

I should be getting photoshop tonight, legal copy from Oliver, so I will be able to fully master the art of editing :P

...most of those you shot @ iso100

the last pic, didnt have a tripod, i guess?    1/3200sec  :o
based off the lic plate as a ref, still underexposed.     you shooting jpeg or raws?
i see the effect you were goin for, and it'll be a ton easier once you get PS up and running with a black mask gradient   :)
Title: Re: The Photography Thread
Post by: slipstreamconversion on April 17, 2013, 01:24 PM
Weird I thought I set my iso to 200 for a couple of those.

It's a very basic program but once i get into a powerful editor it will be nice.

I had a tripod, but decided against using it, as I want spending much time in the ghetto that Vince brought me to :P

Shooting in jpegs, my buddy told me raw it's better once I have a program that reads it. Apparently it makes a big difference!

Hya. if you know what you're using and doing.  :)
Simply put, JPG looks better than untouched raw. Your raw file has NOTHING modded on it, where cams will apply settings to JPG when shot (saturation boost, sharpening, etc).  Keep in mind, the JPG boosts are PERMANENT, and not "smart" (thats a photoshop term for changable at any time) like in raw files. That's why people who go from point-n-shoot to DSLR are usually disappointed when shooting raw.

oh ya, going from 100 to 200 is hardly upping it, hehe!

Refer back to my guitar picture a page ago. See the "spotlight" effect?  Make a solid black layer as HIGHEST layer in your layer-stack. your picture will turn all black. attach a mask to it. Select gradient tool and set it to circle. on mask layer, adjust it as necessary.    Easy way to add spotlights, vignettes, etc... They take some modding if you want it to not be a perfect circle.  Lower the layer opacity if you dont want it SOLID ASS BLACK on the edges. Learn the difference between black and white on masks, and it's a walk in the park. Super easy concept once you realize the difference.

Hey Shaun, how is the drag on your fluid head for pans?  I think I have a pretty similar one (717ah) and notice that since I have been in Winnipeg, it has way too much drag whereas in California it was fine.  It is almost impossible to pan on a monopod or a cheap/light tripod now.   I am thinking the grease might be temperature sensitive as once I heat it up to 30-40C with a hair dryer, it is back to smooth panning.

Mine seems to be fine, and I was using it in winter too. Though, I could see how it could be a problem with a monopod or cheap tripod, mine is pretty beefy.

Thanks for the info.  I think I'll have to end up changing the grease on mine to something with less drag.  My "sturdiest" tripod is the Manfrotto 190X Prob, it comes nowhere close to being beefy as the one you took a picture of; haha.

50mm is a great focal length to have.  And the aperture of 1.8. Vs the 2.8 is really nice too.  I have used both and I prefer the 50mm.  It's build quality isn't great (all plastic,  glass lense of coarse)  but for under $200 you can't go wrong.  I upgraded to the 50 1.4 and it's all the prime goodness with a bigger aperture and really good build quality.

Agreed, while you can get good photo's from the entry level cameras, it's usually because of:

a) the person operating the camera
b) the lighting
c) the expensive glass they have attached to the camera.

Is there any particular reason you're looking at a DSLR?  High end point and shoots with manual controls are a good place to start if you're learning.

^Nikon's mirrorless cameras are one of the worse; go with a Sony, Olympus, or Panasonic.  I got a Sony NEX 3N to compliment my bulky dSLR (and to replace the T2I) and it is a great little camera.  The sensor and noise performance is actually better than the Canon midrange dSLRs.  The lens selection isn't that great, but the lenses they do have are much cheaper than the Canon/Nikon equivalent. 

The only thing that I would hate about using the 3N as my go-to camera is having no EVF, but for ~$450; it is hard to complain. 

Edit:  Forgot to mention that I was able to get a smooth pan with my 190XProb after I screwed in the "locking screws" on the bottom of the tripod and tightening the head (I need to use an oil filter clamp to pull the fluid head off, lol).

Title: The Photography Thread
Post by: adamsnez on June 16, 2013, 03:30 PM
thx. I framed it up, then paddled out to see it up close and personal. People usually don't even touch it. Every half minute or so, it walls up completely vertical and curls down on itself like a big hand/fingers. Just a constant cycle of building then crashing. It gets significantly bigger than this when it's at its at the top of its build - but this was just before it exploded back on itself. So loud and awesome in there.

Set my camera on high frame shoot, and explained to another kayaker just hold the button when it starts crashing. This was the best of all the ones he fired off after the wave did a few cycles.

The detail is pretty lacking, as I only had a 200mm, and this wave is pretty damn far off the island he was shooting from. Most of the picture was just water and trees, because it couldn't zoom any closer, so I just cropped in to finish it.

when i shoot during the day and it's a single exposure [i shoot lots on the water when kayaking], there's a HUGE seperation between whites and darks (whitewater VS the 'green' water, sky VS clouds).... so in PP i slam my highlights and whites way down... recovers so much "almost blown" info

Thanks for the tip guys. Yeah I realize there is quite a bit blow out areas. Been trying to drop the highlights and bring up the blacks/shadows but I guess I didn't do it enough. I'll go back and try to edit them again when I have some more time. It sucks shooting in the middle of the day with not a cloud in the sky.

It's not even our best / biggest wave. We have a wave called Scary, and trust me... It lives up to its name...

It's all in how you use it.  I have a Canon T1i.  And I've learned so much over the past while, it's still a great camera body to learn further on, and it's the cheaper alternative.  I'll be adding lenses to my arsenal then switch the camera body down the road.

Seriously, point and shoots, even some iPhone/Android/WP8 pictures are absolutely breathtaking, because it's usually the camera holder that makes the biggest difference.

Read back in this thread, as people have asked that question many times, and there's lots of research to be had on Google.

Also, what are your goals for the camera?  Do you expect it to become a hobby? 

If DSLR is the way you plan on going, remember, quality lenses will be more important than an expensive camera body.

Depending on your budget I have the Canon Rebel T4i with the upgraded lens 18-135mm lens.  I really enjoy this camera great bang for the buck.  Highly recommended.  These were all shot with this camera.

Check out some of my photos.... haven't shot much lately but it's pretty much because I have quite a few waiting to be edited.  http://www.flickr.com/photos/ajdesigns2012/ (http://www.flickr.com/photos/ajdesigns2012/)

Here's a few samples...

We did a demo wedding shoot with my wife and I, using a remote trigger for the shots with me.

Took a workshop on water drops, they are VERY easy to do, you need to have patience though to get a shot like this.  Must have skimmed through a couple hundred to get this one.

Thanks man. 

The beach one is one of my favorite photos that I've taken.  I would have liked to get the lines a little straighter but its not bad for freehand on a beach.  I want to try a few HDR photos next similar to the one that adam took, it makes the photo really pop.

my budget is around 300 - 700$, I'd like to make photography a nice hobby. I do quite a bit of travelling and there are times where I'm like. "Damn, I wish I had a camera for this." Thought I'd ask for some recommendations from the photographer masters.

someone told me the Nikon D3100 or the Canon t2i is a great starter camera to go with, but one of my co workers told me to go with the t3i. Basically the best bang for my buck is what I'd prefer, the higher the price, the more worried I get about using it lol.

If that's out of your budget, determine if video functionality is necessary, or if it would just "be nice to do".

Keep in mind quality lenses will eat up most of your budget.

It sounds like you haven't researched much yet, and you just want to jump in right away.

Yeah, my bad.  But it really is a good investment.  I know my kit cost $1150 after taxes new on sale.

As Shaun said, pick what you want to do with the camera then do some research.  The T3i isn't very good with video, but has better image stability and colour depth than the T2i, and vise versa for the video capabilities of the T2i.

I think my boss is willing to sell me his t3i for 450$ - 500$ with a lens. He is a wedding videographer so I know he takes care of his cameras and I can spend the money knowing I won't get jipped. Plus he will sell me some better lenses as well. So I think I might get a deal for a good camera.

dslr vary based on model.

take it for what it's worth....
"That site gets posted a lot around here but the main problem with it is that it's numbers (averages) are based on only about 700 (plus or minus) people or so... and often those that only found the site by Googling "camera shutter life" when they are having a shutter problem."

Just a little thing I wanna point out. Watch your reflections. Guy sitting on curb? Even shows twice in the photo.

Still figuring out photoshop for the most part.  Been practicing a bit, but I mainly use it for color/lighting fixes.

Reflections are something I try to avoid but for some reason totally missed here haha.

Definitely points to take home though for the future!  Thanks :)

Went to buddie's house to shoot, with no plan. Opened his fridge and cupboards and started pulling stuff out. Each frame signifies no correlation between all foods within each frame.

At first it was a joke, then the shoot got WAY too serious. My first "tripod" was the camera mounted on my ballhead (sitting on floor), with a shim pack holding my 70-200 2.8 -- tupperware container, book, tupperware lid (to get the proper height). Then we actually liked how it was turning out so got a bit more stable and mounted it on the tripod. Will be e-mailing the Stella pic to the company telling them to use it for a marketing ad. Peanut Butter sandwiches will sell a product better than any woman or sex ever will.

Stopped by a car show the other day and I had my camera along so I figured I'd try taking a few shots. I have never taken pictures at an event like this before with many cars that are close together. Any tips or pointers concerning the composition aspect of the photos would be much appreciated. Please feel free to comment on the editing as well since I'm very new to lightroom and have been sort of figuring it out along the way. I suppose I should do some reading up on editing one day....

EDIT: finished a few more

on a crit scale;
Lot of areas could use their darks/shadows brought up.
Where the whole car is in frame, lot of composing it TOO close to the edge of photo.

i see all are called .jpg, but were they originally raw?

you have photoshop? learn about clean or healing.

Did you boost up the saturation a lot on this one? Color balance is a little messed up, the sky reflection on the car is very harsh.

I agree. I really like the perspective of the shot, but the colors seem way off.

First off you should link using bbcode from flickr instead of attaching the image.

But as a critique of the photo I would say
1) Watch your shadows and reflections. There is some idiot (me) you can see crouching in the reflection. And it might have been better to shoot from the side the sun was shining on as you don't have to deal with the giant shadow.
2) As said many times on the forum here always try and shoot using the rule of thirds, it will make for a more interesting photo
3) The photo is a tad over exposed in some areas which can be fixed in PS or LR
4) Also tell the idiot driver (me) to roll up his window while leaving it at a meet haha

Thanks this is exactly the type of feedback I was looking for. Looking back at the photos a day or two after editing them I can see what you mean about the dark areas. My only reason for having the cars (subject) so close to the edge of the photo is because there were either people in the way or another car in the way so I figured I'd be best off cropping that stuff out. As for the format I have no idea why  was shooting in jpg... Had a brain dead moment I guess. I'll definitely be researching healing as well. Thanks again for the input.

Again after looking back at my editing a day later I can definitely see what you mean about the saturation being way overdone. Just a few more things to look for from now on. Do you usually upload your photos right after editing them or do you wait a bit and go over them all again?

How to use BB code:
1) Go to Flickr and click on the photo you want to share
2) Click "more ways to share"
3) In that menu click "grab the html/bbcode"
4) Select the bbcode option
5) Copy and paste to your post

As for the glare, that's what photoshop is for ;)

Then I would definitely look into a quality point & shoot, with the ability to shoot RAW. Start by learning composition, editing techniques, and adjusting settings manually and then if you really love photography you can move onto a DSLR. I can suggest some cameras for you if you'd like.

Take a look at this site http://photography.tutsplus.com/ and notably http://photography.tutsplus.com/articles/100-helpful-photography-tutorials-for-beginners-and-professionals--photo-3673

Here's a checklist for things you should understand before you even start shooting:
Aperture
Shutter speed
ISO
White balance
RAW vs Jpeg
Exposure compensation
Manual modes (Aperture priority, shutter priority, etc)

Then find yourself some photo management and editing software. Lots of people use Lightroom, I use Adobe Bridge and Photoshop CS6.

I love mine, be careful at 10mm though, if your subject is too close to the edge of the frame you'll get some crazy distortion! My only dislike from that lens.

Deal? Bro they're cheap as hell on eBay and such. Canon F1 bodies are like $100 and you can usually find an AE-1 with a 50mm f/1.8 for probably under that...

That's if you want to go with Canon..

Anyone shooting film? I haven't touched my D7000 in a while because i've been having too much fun with my minolta srt 101!
I still need to scan my pictures that i got developed, Where does everyone get their film developed? 4x6 matte prints were $30 for 48 pictures...

Last time I shot film was the spring BBQ, with disastrous results.

I got rolls of 24 developed straight to DVD for $12 at Don's Photo.

Contrary to popular belief, you can take up photography for very little costs. You can practice techniques and create stunning images with the simplest hardware. Most people have a point and shoot digital camera available to them, or even a cell phone. You don't need a DSLR. That said, once you get into it, it becomes expensive haha.

well no doubt you can get good looking photos with a point and shoot but I mean some of these intense definition pics makes me want to, but too many parts to buy fo rmy car
plus I have no photoshop skills  or editing skill and yeah that's about it, lol.

Maybe one day, i'll get something better than my dinosaur age camera and try things out see how I do.

You think people are just born with photoshop skills? Also don't listen to dolan, don't buy a camera until you actually really want to pursue photography and have experience. 90% of people that buy a DSLR end up selling it because they've used it 3 times since owning it and have lost interest.

Can confirm.

I've used my camera 3 times.  Fuk photography.

In all seriousness its a fun hobby, and its awesome to learn as I go and ask for tips along the way.  For me, the learning curve and experience I get as I go is a good feeling.

If its casual just use a point and shoot.  You'd be surprised how good they are :P

Exactly!  Darcy said the same thing too.   I'm actually blown away at how many options they put into the camera on this phone.  When i see you next, i should show you if you're interested!  Its got a pretty slick setup on there.

LOL just saw this now.
and I wasn't going to buy a dslr.
I was thinking to start with a good or better quality point and shoot
photography is something I've always had interest in, but always shy away from because I've never really had a 'gift' with a camera.
I figure if I am going to try to legitimately get into it, I may as well invest a little money rather than trying to look like a hero with a cellphone.
a cellphone camera is great for when you are in a situation that you see something you'd like a picture of but don't have a camera. Even though some of the newer cell phone camera's are getting pretty decent.

I have nothing against android, but i'll never buy one.
I like my iphone, if I upgrade i'll get another iphone probably.

ISO100/200/400/800  UHF VIDEO, 1920x1080 video capture, picture stabilization, burst shooting.   Most of which are included on a point and shoot (my definition of point and shoot is a walmart unit.  not one you can interchange lens and whatnot)

Having all this on a phone, is pretty damn good considering the size comparison to most camera's.

If you're gonna buy a cheap camera get an actual cheap camera like ~$100 or don't even bother wasting your money. If you're prepared to spend $250 you might as well look for one that can shoot in raw (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raw_image_format). <- click for your first lesson in photography. Raw format makes editing 1000x better, the ability to manipulate the image vs a standard jpeg is incredible. Anybody that shoots in jpeg is a noob.

I'm going to do some homework before even looking for a camera. -- I'm definitely going to be a noob regardless of shooting in raw format or JPEG

Basically think of raw as a digital negative. You can adjust exposure, shadows, contrast, whites, noise, hues, the list goes on much more accurately with raw without compromising image quality like you would with jpeg. A good example of one of the benefits of raw would be if you're shooting in a low light situation and don't have a tripod, you can bump the exposure down a couple stops in the camera and take your photo. The raw image would be underexposed, but then when editing you can bump the exposure back up to where it should be with minimal impact to quality.

If you wanna get into photography and you have the budget for a dslr, might as well buy a dslr. Gonna be your best option. And photography takes a lot of learning. I just sat on YouTube and watched tutorials and I've probably put more work into photography than my school work.

Title: Entry level DSLR camera
Post by: Bmoney on January 29, 2015, 08:12 PM
My daughter is showing a strong interest in photography - and has outgrown taking Iphone pics lol.  She's a smart kid and will take to it quickly, but I don't want to invest into something hugely expensive in case it doesn't "catch on".

I'm thinking a nice entry level DSLR with simple lens(s) to start with.  If she takes it to the next level, I have no problem taking her hand me down and moving up.  I just don't want to start out too high.

Most places I've read strongly lean towards the Nikon D3300.  What do the camera-nuts on here think?  What would you suggest for a starter DSLR setup that will provide the power to not be outgrown in 10 seconds, but isn't a big-ticket camera either?  Pro's and con's?  Is one brand more "supported" (in the aftermarket) than another? 

Thanks!

You can save hundreds of dollars by buying something a few generations older. For example, my D70 is pretty much worthless now, in terms of resale. However, shooting a DSLR hasn't changed much. Newer models get you fancy bells and whistles, and of course mechanical and sensor upgrades, but those aren't necessary in order to decide if you like shooting or not. Upgrading cameras is not so much a matter of not being held back, but adding to your arsenal. I'd start with something cheap to learn on. If she gets really into it, by the time she really needs more advanced equipment, there'll be something else new out there, so there's no point in buying it right now. I'd also reckon she'll 'outgrow' lenses rather than the body, so you might be into it for hundreds and hundreds of dollars in additional lenses by then too. That said, getting one that doesn't do video decently would be depressing at this point.

@Bmoney (http://toptierimports.com/index.php?action=profile;u=1642) I've reiterated this many times in this thread (merged your thread in here btw) that beginners should start out with a simple point and shoot for the exact reason you mentioned. In fact the last discussion in here was about this.

Pick up a quality P&S camera that has the ability to shoot in raw format. I couldn't really recommend you one as I don't keep tabs on the latest and greatest cameras these days but I can dig around if you want. There's a lot more to photography than just "features" within the camera. Composition, editing, learning white balance, shutter speed, aperture, ISO, etc that really apply to any camera.
Title: The Photography Thread
Post by: Bmoney on January 29, 2015, 08:25 PM
Yup.  She's got my 14mp point and shoot now - and agree there is a lot more going on than just the hardware.  Lets make the assumption we get past the point and shoot, what device would be your choice for entry DSLR?
Title: The Photography Thread
Post by: Lou on January 29, 2015, 08:30 PM
I don't think you can go wrong with an entry level offering from any of the major brands. Take a look at which lens or lenses you might consider for each camera and work out what the best value would be from there. I've enjoyed my t1i for quite a few years now and its served me well on quite a few trips that I've taken it on.

Just throwing this out there but I think an entry level DSLR should still be considered simply because it would be priced similarly if not cheaper than a good point and shoot and also because it has the potential to be easier to control than a point and shoot plus has the added ability to experiment with different lenses down the road.
Title: The Photography Thread
Post by: Shaun on January 29, 2015, 08:52 PM
DSLR bodies might be priced similarly but the lenses are where you start spending the big bucks. If you're going to get a DSLR and a kit lens you're wasting your money and as you mentioned, would outgrow in 10 seconds.

That said I agree with firelizard completely, get a used body, a d5200 or something, a 50mm (good for portraits, and photos where you want to isolate your subject), a wide angle lens (good for landscape shots, group photos, etc), and a telephoto lens (good for wildlife). http://www.kijiji.ca/v-camera-camcorder-lens/winnipeg/nikon-d5200-50mm-1-8g-camera-bag/1047328770?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true (http://www.kijiji.ca/v-camera-camcorder-lens/winnipeg/nikon-d5200-50mm-1-8g-camera-bag/1047328770?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true)
A decent quality wide angle would be around $500 and the same would go for a telephoto lens.

Or buy a quality point and shoot for $2-300 that has a similar focal range.

Pretty lame article IMO, a lot of pictures weren't even at night. Not to mention he shot directly into street lights which caused horrible glare. Don't know why transparent body panels would even be included as the technique doesn't change from day to night.

For "awesome" pics he should have brought in some strobes, or at least explained how to do light painting properly as these are techniques that are most used in low lighting conditions.

It should have been titled "how to take mediocre pics of cars with a tripod"

Hey guys!
So i am looking into buying a Canon 5D. Its 5 years old and it comes with a 50 mm lens, bag, manual, strap, charger and battery. Its in pretty good condition the censor has been recently cleaned professionally and the lens is pretty nice too.

The person is selling it all for $250.

What do you guys think? I want to know what your take is for the 5D and if this is a good deal.
ive done some looking around and the camera just the body is going for around 500-700$$ but with accessories for around 900-1500.

PSA: If anyone is running Lightroom CC on a Mac with the latest update and it keeps crashing, go to the top settings menu, Lightroom->Preferences(Command,)->General-> Turn off "Show "Add Photos" Screen". That will do the trick, Adobe is working on a permanent fix for it

They are all parked on the sides. I made sure that they weren't in the photo just because we needed a new photo for our website at Porsche and they wanted it to just be the building. only one car made it because it was dead.

This past weekend I went up with the fam to the cabin to prep it for summer... Left Friday morning after the storm, lets say that the roads were essentially snow covered glass followed by powder on the gravel. My fathers truck was almost pushing snow in some spots -

With only a few tracks up, it was our own winter wonderland -

The lake was still frozen, we measured about 12-16" of ice when we cut through -

First night was crystal clear, but bright moonlight... not a ton of stars compared to normal-

Our cabin is heated by woodstove, no electrical heat, running water, bathroom... like a cabin should be. With that being said, we stoked the fire at midnight before tucking in. We woke up to -19C outside and only +2 inside the cabin... All of our drinking/cooking water was borderline slushy. I woke at 7 to start the fire again(took 4.5 hours to warm up to +19ish in the cabin) and to watch the sunrise -

I'm taking my DSLR out less and less because the fun convenience of the iPhone for snapshots outweigh the low quality. Trying to kick the habit, but it's hard.

Back from the dead. Learning a new camera during the preseason leads to a lot of missed shots. However, the D500 is a stunning camera. The only downfall is Nikons lack of upkeep for the SnapBridge system, the connectivity is ****. Apart from that here are some shots from the first two games
