    Oh my goodness, guys! Someone on Facebook who seems to actually know what she's talking about when discussing cameras! This is like 1 in a million!

    On a side note, finally snow has fallen in the GTA but sadly I have exams to study for and a Java project to get done.

    Or any other kind of video, really.

    Windows typically people use Sony Vegas. Sony Vegas 11 was released not too long ago but all that does is crash for me so I use Sony Vegas 10. I am probably going to start learning Premiere Pro CS5 soon just because it has a dynamic link with After Effects and it could save me so much time, effort and quality.

    If you're on I Mac, Final Cut Pro 7 is the way to go. There's always FCP X but that's more like iMovie which I don't like.

    I've always used Premiere, but that was for a class in high school, and i became pretty good with it. If I ever get back to filming things, I'd probably stick with that.

    Just to let any of you northerners know, they're a good chance of seeing the northern lights tonight in most northern latitudes.

    Wow, 3 'norths' in one sentence.

    Anyway, just to let you know, in case any of you fancied watching (or photographing them, hint, hint).

    They were visible in northern england last night, so anywhere along the Canadian boarder (especially if there's not much light pollution) should be good... Hopefully.

    It's worth just sticking your head outside for an hour or two if you've never seen them before though.

    I saw a faint glow last night, from Edinburgh, around 7:30pm.

    The clouds then rolled in.

    There was a pretty strong one that coincided with a clear night 3 years ago, sadly wasn't there, and the last massive aurora storm was ruined by cloud cover over all of Scotland :(

    The weather seems to be clear in most of Britain tonight.
    It's cool that it is actually possible to see them occasionally in the UK.

    London and light pollution destroys my chances of seeing stars, let alone the northern lights.
    I guess that's why they're called the northern lights though

    Well I'm pissed. So you know that contest I asked some of you guys to vote for? Well apparently they had "an unexpected technical error in the online vote collection process" which probably means they lost all our votes. So, the voting has been re-enabled until the 3rd of February. I ask of you again, if you have any spare time, to please vote for Memorial (Jake, Billy, Chris and Ben). You can vote once a day, every day.

    Any vote helps, it would be awesome to have this on my college app plus $2,500 towards improving the photo department

    That's about retail price in the US so it seems fine. You might have overpaid by about $200, but taxes and import so I don't know. You certainly didn't get a terrible deal if you did overpay by a bit.

    Spent 3 hours with my flatmate on Arthur's Seat, with it being many degrees below zero and extremely windy.

    No sign of the Aurora, it became too cloudy again.

    Arsing about with the 10-24 I bought. SO WIDE. Didn't feel the 12-24 was much better, but only constant use will prove that. 10mm distorts heavily but its fun.

    10mm


    17mm


    How do you feel about the sharpness? Haven't used it wide open yet, but it seems quite impressive stopped down a bit.

    Have you tried levels?

    That with replace color I got this.

    Little blown out, can be fixed with a few other adjustments. Still learning photoshop here and there so there's probably an easier way to do it.

    I may have said it before but that is really amazing for a highschool video. If you hadn't told me I would n't have known it wasn't a professionally made video especially compared to the competition.

    It gets the point across excellently and I really just have nothing but compliments for it

    So we have a school assignment where we are supposed to make something that doesn't look real, but looks natural.

    You're supposed to see immediately that it is not real, but it should look like it could have been real.

    I was thinking a form of the good ol' bopie float, but I want to make the whole thing more exciting than just a guy floating, so if anyone has any good ideas, feel free to shoot them this way, I really suck at thinking this stuff out myself.

    there's a tripod mount on my FD to E mount converter for when i shoot my canon lenses on my nex, and when you don't have the tripod mount screwed in there's two little holes allowing light in to distort the image.
    so now i know why i get weird color fringing lol. got to get some electrical tape
