Fancy Pictures

Post  Jimcoleman on Thu Sep 17, 2015 7:19 pm

As you most of you know that i like to bore you lot with lots of on bike Video on youtube and vimeo. but recently i bought a Nikon D800 to replace my Video camera and i liked it so much i bought D600 as a second shooter, after some picture taking i discovered much to my disgust that i take a better photo with my GoPro and my iphone ;(

So i discussed this issue with a photographical mates for a few tips so, so i am improving and mostly using my D600 for picture.


this i reckon is my best one

Nice shots JC. I admire anyone who can master the art of high speed photography.

Hi mate, don`t take this the wrong way, because I think you`ve taken some good shots, along with other things you`ve posted in the past, and I have a very limited knowledge of photography.
But I almost see that with the digital age that we`re in, its almost getting impossible to shoot a bad shot.
If anyone takes a bad shot, you can delete it, and by either playing with a camera in Manual, AV, TV, or even Priority, and doing a burst of shots, cameras these days will almost always, get a good shot.
But the talent obviously comes with setting it up correctly for any given shot, you want to turn out perfectly, which I lack greatly, and will never be a good photographer.

I know money has a lot to do with it too. Full size sensor, and an expensive lens goes along way with capturing a good photo.

I`ve still got a 35mm Canon A1, with a 50mm 1.2L lens, which still takes extremely good photos, but only 2 out of my 24 photos are any good after developed, as stated, lacking skill.

Have you seen this new camera from Canon,  http://nofilmschool.com/2015/07/canons-multi-purpose-ME20F-SH-full-frame-35mm-camera-4-million-iso

It has a 4million ISO, and only costs about $30 000, but apparently, it can almost take a photo it total darkness, and its been stated by critics, that this is going to be the new way in development in cameras, that is ISO, not Megapixels enhancement. 
Anyway, I still like your shots.

Resize in Photoshop to 800px wide James and all will be good

Its not the equipment, its knowing your equipment, its limitations, and having some idea of composition and lighting.
