Also, not sure if anyone will be bothered but I just listed my Canon 75-300mm lens on ebay. Not a particularly special lens, but not bad, I just never used it. Link is below if anyone is interested:

cool :) i've been meaning to digitize my negatives with a scanner but I like that the detail is much better with a dslr!

 

 

I've scanned my first roll and I struggled with getting all the detail I wanted. Then again it was fisheye and it wasn't shot in the brightest conditions. Hoping the next roll will be better.

Good choice

 

I love my first version to bits, so I can only imagine this version is going to be more amazing.

So I've landed myself the job as the photographer for my friend's 21st this Saturday. Don't expect he'll have high standards, but is there any advice for night photography? E.g. any settings, or adjustments I should be making? Matt your input would be greatly appreciated because you know my photo details a bit.

 

or any party photography advice at all...

If possible, a high aperture (as it'll be dark), think you could go to 2.7 with your camera, so something like aperture priority mode on 2.7 would work well.

If you have any metering modes, try spot metering (or centre metering).

I always always complain about selective colouring on photos... But i really love this! Its done really well, very professional!

 

heres a boring as shit photo just so i have something to contribute. started this photography course and the first assessment is so painfully boring - car shots. YAWN. this is the one I liked the most but didn't use for obvious reasons

yeah its so painfully basic that i've procrastinated for ages over it. Like

'take 3 photos of a moving vehicle at shutter speeds of 1/1000, 1/250 and 1/30. How are they different?'

 

 

GOOD HEAVENS I just have no idea what will happen when I do that.

 

 

But I read through the rest of the course and it thankfully gets a whole lot better soon :LOL:

it was embarrassing getting them printed! the lady was like 'oh new car huh?'

 

er yeah, i took heaps of photos of my car because i'm so proud to own a suzuki swift and I want the world to know it.

 

engagement shoot tomorrow *bites nails* i'm conveniently getting a much-needed haircut right before it so at least my hair will be fab.

...that was so awkward. I hate being in front of the camera. I hope she got some not-awful photos.

 

Um we had some picnicy props, stood around being awkwardly affectionate on a rock. You know, the usual. >_< she said she'll put one up tonight and i'm shitting myself.
