A.net Photogs - Show Your Best No-Av Work (Oct/Nov 10)

Sun Oct 17, 2010 12:32 pm

To all the a.net photographers the last thread went down quite well but had now been archived so given its success I thought that I would start a new thread to see what everyone has been up to in the last month even though this is the October edition of course the pictures can be older

If you wish you can also place a link to your respective profile as I have done below to enable fellow a.net photographers to add you as a contact so as to enable each other to follow each others work.

http://www.flickr.com/people/MWHCVT/

A simple rule of the thread is the work must be your own, try and give a background story to the picture

Last months thread

A.net Photogs - Share Your Best Recent No-Av Work (by mwhcvt Sep 11 2010 in Non Aviation)


IMG_5827 by mwhcvt, on Flickr

So this was taken last night after going out for a meal to celebrate my brother in laws 40th had stumbled across the location a few days earlier and knew it would not be long before I returned with the camera


Street lights gone Wild by mwhcvt, on Flickr

Actually from September but I just love the effect, without reading the description on flickr can you figure this shot out???

As you can see light is my main interest at this point in time and it is a hope to bring this into the a.net fold at some point in the near future.

Looking forward to seeing your fantastic work this month.

Here are two or three of my favorites taken with my new equipment. When I posted in the old thread, I was still using my old Olympus.

1) Nissan GT-R at Bimmerstock 2010, a car show in Glen Cove, NY.

2) My girlfriend at Celtic Fest 2010, in Bethlehem, PA. I don't know why I love this image, but it really caught my eye when I uploaded it.

3) Flowers in Madison Square Park, in New York City.


Here's a link to my website for anyone who's interested: http://www.tisdigital.com

Not many new pics since the last thread unfortuntately, but here's mine:



Petra is usually thronged with tourists, so it was lucky to get a rare quiet moment when this horse and carriage turned a bend in the Siq.

The morning sun caught this old book beautifully. Taken in a friend's house.

These air conditioning ducts in downtown Amman looked interesting.

A charming scene in another unusually quiet moment in Petra.

And finally, I was ludky to get a sunny day and a beautiful sunset last Friday driving to Cork:

Taken at Joshua Tree Nat'l Park....I was amazed this came out decently, as I snapped it quickly before the lizard ran away:


Also from Joshua Tree:

And finally, the obligatory Ben photo:

I'm quite partial to night/dusk photography, so most of my favorite shots are... well dark  .

1. the Protestant chapel at Zagreb's Mirogoj cemetery on All Saints':

http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f229/TripleDelta/ANUT_2.jpg

2. believe it or not, this is a fireworks display during the annual Fireworks Competition held in Zagreb:

3. the old, long-abandoned cement works on the edge of town:

4. up close at the business end of a barbecue grill warming up:

I love to shoot either early in the morning or late in the day when the sun's angle is nice and low. It gives a drama to the light that you simply can't get at mid-day. These were all shot in Havana Cuba, a photo-rich environment.

I don't do a lot of the arty stuff seen above (although I suppose I could) - but I do event-photography also. These are a few I can show that aren't "internal only":

http://www.totalnfs.net/c_d_files/aj_a.jpg
I think that conveys the mood quite well. The media was asking all sorts of nasty (and loaded) questions in regards to the B747 and A380 engine incidents in the recent time. You can sense the tension.

Ryan- Just one question.. Do you 'cheat' when making the HDR by taking one RAW and alter the exposures/do it in Photoshop with one image or do you actually bracket it?

I always bracket. Usually 3 exposures, sometimes 5 or more. But on top of creating the HDR from the multiple exposures, if any areas come out funky as a result of the HDR processing, I mask in parts from a single exposure to replace the weird looking area. Usually it's the sky I replace, and sometimes other areas like blown highlights. It helps for a more natural look.

It looks like it could be a diorama- like from a model train set-up. Very nice.

HDR = High Dynamic Range

HDR photos are created with multiple exposures of the same scene. Each exposure is metered to provide maximum detail in differently lit areas of a scene (i.e. goings on in the shadow of a city building vs. cloud detail that may be visible in the distance). After taking the photos, one would use an image editor to splice different portions of each photo together.

Any website you can point me to for tips on how to do fake tilt-shifts? Those Canon TS-Es are sooooo expensive..

I would dearly love to have that TS-E lens if only I could get one at anything like an affordable price...but am reluctant to start faking TS effects. The reason for this is that fake TS shots are so easy to spot (including all bar one posted here), unless you put in a lot of editing time. The tilt shift effect gives you a band of sharp features at a given fixed distance from the camera, not at a fixed altitude above the bottom of the frame. Tall features in the image although usually approximately the same distance from the camera along their entire height, often poke between the sharp and blurred areas made by an artificial TS mask effect.Thus you get a feature at a fixed distance that is both in and out of focus, when it should be one or the other. Look at the second image in Reply 26 to see what I mean especially clearly.

That made me lol.

How do people make their HDR images? I started out stitching them together manually in Gimp, then got an addon to Lightroom that does it for me. Sometimes the lightroom way doesnt give the results I want though and I end up doing it by hand anyway, being able to tweak the curves and all traits of every single layer is a boon. Here is my first (and to date best IMO) dabble into HDR earlier this summer, followed by a couple of other shots from recently that I like.
