Welcome to the Neowin photo gallery! Here you can post your pictures and discuss your photography techniques.

Please be mindful of our members on dial-up and try to keep the dimensions of the pics and the size of the files to a respectable size for 1024 x 768 viewers. Please refrain from quoting images in your replies.

I will also ask that you link to images on your own space, as much as possible.

Try to put more details from your camera settings and also talk about what you have done with photoshop.

There are a lot of photographers here that like your editing skills and would like to learn more.

The previous thread can be found here.

Thanks!

Taken with 50mm/1.4 lens (75mm on fullframe)

50mm on a fullframe IS 50mm. The D80 is NOT a full frame; it's a 1.5x crop sensor. So that's how you get the 75mm ;)

Not too confident yet; here's my favourite recent picture I've taken.

Canon EOS 400D, Kit (18-55mm, f/3.5-5.6 I believe) lens. Don't remember what I used specifically on taking, we were in college and I just went for an impromptu shot.

Thank you :) I realized when I took it how washed out her face was from the flash, but I couldn't get another shot I was as pleased with. I'll probably try an actual shoot with her and see if I can get something better. But yeah, thank you very much.

Did you shoot RAW? You can try and recover it a bit.

A train went by about 20 seconds after taking that photo above, ha.

Still learning the ropes :)

Taken with 50mm/1.4 lens (75mm on fullframe) without a tripod from a ledge of a balcony. Didn't have enough sky room to work with so I didn't take a lot of photos in the end.

Sadly not, or I would do so.

- Tipod or something that will steady your camera.

- Manual mode. You might want to try Aperture/Shutter priority mode as well, but it's better to control everything yourself. Auto mode is pretty much useless here.

- Lowest ISO possible to avoid as much noise as possible.

- Slow shutter speed/long exposure. A couple of second up to 10 or more. Depends on the situation really. My last one was 30 seconds for example (should have put it a little bit down there :/ ). It's a matter of taking a couple of photos to find what's the best exposure.

- Proper aperture to get everything sharp and in focus. I shot mine at f/7.1. Also when you shoot night landscape or anything similar that doesn't have anything near to be in focus, then put the lens in manual focus mode and set it to infinity. Having the camera focus on it's own at night is rather difficult and useless. And if it will focus, it will be at infinity anyway. Of course this doesn't apply if you are shooting a person that stands a couple of feet from you.

- A lens with maximum aperture of 2.8 or more (read less - smaller number). For example 50mm/1.8 (quite cheap), 20mm/2.8 etc. Most of them are pricey, but you get what you pay for.

That's what I said. o_O

crazy is right.

i think its worth reading your post again. i think you said 75mm on a full frame which is incorrect, its truly 50mm on a full frame and only 75mm on a cropped sensor.

I know he is right and I know that I am right. I am aware of crop factors. Just the way I said it seemed wrong. What I meant is that the photos taken with this lens are equivalent of 75mm on FF. o_O

So you're saying it'd take a 75mm lens on a FF to make the equivalent of the shots you took?
