the after the process of mixing 3 shots, begs my question, when does photography stop and photoshop start in the photo taking process??

 

Agreed :)

 

Or any heavy processing of any shots..

That should be the first forum topic.. and a heated one i am sure it will be

 

M

:lol: :lol: the age old debate... im going to leave my comments for when the forum kicks off, we can have a 500 page thread about it... :P

 

great to see you in here, an great photos you have on your portfolio, looking forward to seeing some more shoots.. :)

..and you gotta just keep poking loz till he gives in(is it there yet?? is it there yet?? is it there yet??...)... jks :P

 

I honestly cant remember now..

 

Was it cameltoe or clubmanc who posted his work(website) earlier, before all the posts got deleted?

ahh great choice.... congrats babatono and HOJ11......... looking forward to seeing some sick photos of all the events and days and nights at the track that our new organisers will be putting together, its really awesome to see HT really stepping out from the interweb into the real world... in time, the potential is astronomical.....

 

ive got a funny vibe that the forum is just around the corner, we've had so so much more response than i expected... this is going to be a great happening section of Hardtuned..... i cant wait ;)

I said something about "were you on the canon forums"

 

Who was it? And can you give me that link please?

 

hmm sorry i just cant remember or find that link :(

 

 

its www.jackietran.myphotoalbum.com :woot: sorry about the temp site, new website in the process atm, will move portfolios onto there asap for clients, sigh

 

 

and regarding what Mikey said, even though hes gay :yes::wub: , yeah i agree with the increasing reliance upon Photoshop to improve one's pics

 

take Sir_Revalot on ozhonda forums for example, who advocates and always suggests HDR use for this photo and that - why cant u learn to take a proper exposure or with the use of various filters LOL - thats the joy and learning experience in photography - not learning how to use photoshop more

 

and regarding merging several pics together to get a good average - its not so bad, I do the same in the film developing lab with the chemicals and a few shots together. Same as sharpening in the film days, not many ppl here know that in order to sharpen a print u have to merge or 'sandwich' some same pics together or something - man that was hard for me, never got the hang of that one.

 

so in conclusion - HDR can be a useful tool sometimes to recover burnt or loss of highlights - but its not a new medium for photography and doest not make u a better photographer, just very competent at photoshopping.

 

Also, did u know that Mike is the official photographer of Mardi Gras for the past 3 yrs? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hey guys,

 

My girlfriend is a photographer well studying to be, she goes to RMIT in the city. She hasn't done cars yet but some of her personal work is on myspace.

I went to school with her older sister/s I think. She has a definate gift. I've seen some of her wedding work from around Launceston.

cheers for the compliments guys!

 

Rob: although that lens is speculation, they dont have any lens in their portrait range that has VR mechanism or ED glass. one of the photos i took at the recent meet was shagged (and hence not uploaded) from bad chromatic abberation/purple fringing because of the lack of ED glass in the 50mm. f1.2 would be nice as well. i wonder if canon have any special 'ED' style glass in their portrait lenses?

 

to be honest i barely know how to use photoshop compared to some folks, and am happy to keep it that way as i think im a bit of a purist on this one.

 

Clubmanmc: cheers - you're spot on, 25th for most of the shots, i didnt want to push the iso higher as i dont have the most recent camera body. this will change soon. i think the shots are a little oversharpened cause they come up differently on the lcds at work... oh well

OK

 

the good news is

 

A Loz has given in there will be a photo forum...

 

in the next few days,

 

however i dont think it needs to be moderated by one person

 

i think it should be self moderated...

 

It will be the only forum i DONT want to moderate...

 

but let it be known that if some one starts to bag a photographer / model / subject they will be delt with harshly..

 

Photography is subjective....

 

and Cameltoe.. yes i do the mardi gra and i am gay, ut you are such a great teacher... thanks for all the help... i am still amazed that you dont have a gag relfex... (i one day aspire to that... )

Awesome! i really think having support of Michael really pushed loz over the line to open up a photographer forum. and the addition of the two guys to the QLD event coverage team. great work..

 

 

Well even though self moderation is good.. but you still need a hand of authority around to make sure no bad sh*t goes around, and well just general clean ups and whatnot.

 

Hoooorayy!!! photography forum :D HTPC hard tuned photography crew :D

night time stuff is very very tricky,

 

once you get past the headlights blinding you and tricking auto focus as well...

 

i was at a HQ race at Mallala semi well lit shooting 40th F2.8 at ISO 1250 or 1000 with a 70-200 panning at about 150mm, the results are good some are awesome.. but its not an easy task... but when you get it right it is awesome!!

 

keep the pics coming guys...

i got the lens for $550 @ JB hifi, they advertised at 667 but lowest i could get them to go was $550 =/

 

very nice lens, the only downfall is it has a noisy motor! i was quite suprised when i first tried and heard the focus motor.

 

i'm about to get another lens this week, the canon EF 100mm f2.8 so can't wait to use that for some shots. gotta load myself up on some filters, etc. and i want to get a remote switch so i can do like super long exposures, like 20min exposures. haha

 

i think i'm going to spend my weekend taking photos with this new lens!

Its not that loud is it?? 550 seems pretty good price esp from a store like jb.. i would have chosen the canon 17-40mm lens tho.. or 17-55.. but the tamron is good tho

 

Have seen many pictures taken from the 100mm AND They are just supurb.. very good lens

 

Edit: wait is that the marco lens?? if so, you will love it!! But a bit of the heavy side tho!!

the 17-40 isnt ideal for APSC sized sensors, it works great on full frames like the 5D and film, but with the 1.66 crop factor on say the 400D, its a very weird range, not quite wide and not quite small telephoto :lol:

 

the 17-55 for smaller sensors is excellent though, very popular with wedding boys, and the tamron is nearly as good, and at more than half the price
