The EOS photos are sensational, particularly the bubbles.


Thanks. I work hard on those ones but find it hard to find inspiration. It is not normally until the last week I work out what I want to do.
I like the comp as it makes me work on specific skills.

Not trying to compete with BasketBallFreak6's excellent beach shot, this is one of mine from Marino in South Australia.

Thanks. I kind of vanished for a few months. I have been very busy at work and not had much time to think about anything but clients servers and networks. When you run your own business, it kind of takes over.

Hello,

I used a tripod.

From my flickr notes

"My second "deep focus compilation". Using Helicon Focus. 7 photos of various focal lengths. All 7 photos had a point of focus but the final appears almost fully focused.
The guitar was help in a stand and the camera was imeadiately over the top.
The material on the floor looks very strange after having been though the conversion process.
Taken with a Canon EOS 30d, 18-55 m lens on a tripod at close range and a remote trigger."

How do you do light painting?


Hello,

Have a dark area, fairly low ISO (stops grainyness and brings out your surrounds) , Long exposure (30 seconds to 1 minute), use a tripod, use a remote trigger (if you have one) and use Mirror lockup (if the camera can do it). Mirror lockup and Tripod just to stop the shakes (Not essential). Use a torch to set your focus and then flick to manual.

Click the shutter.

Now get in front of the lens and do something cool with an Led light or torch.

Once you have done that, you can work on your next peice of art until you have worked out the way you like to light paint.

Here is my first attempt

I think you will find it is an expensive lens. My Canon MPE60 lens works well hand held (just need to watch DOF). My Macro's seem to benifit with more expensive lenses :(

As the MPE60 is so quick and easy to use, I can see you getting a few shots off and being able to stack them. It is still manual focus though. I think any more than a few shots is unrealistic.
Some of these hand held guys might be stretching the truth.

Thinking about it, maybe they have the camera hooked into a follow focus system and rapid photo bursts ?

yea i would love to learn how aye, my guess is rapid burst as they turn the focus ring, but keeping still is hard enough as it is also like for example i use flash i dunno if the flash can keep up :S
