    My first two tries at light painting, what do you guys think?

    [release]

    Fanatec Wheel by Emanuele Monaco

    My first light painting test.

    Made with a cheap 3 led light.

    The wheel is not straight (must have bumped into it while lighting the scene) and it's also a bit "dirty" but oh well.

    [/release]
    [release]

    Our 207 by Emanuele Monaco

    Second attempt at light painting.

    This is made of multiple shots merged together. (the place was too bright to do it in a single shot)

    This was a rough test, the composition is sort of random and the car was dirty, but I like it overall!

    Don't be jelly, it's their cheapest model (the Carrera) it was like 99 euro / 99$, I'm pretty sure the DFGT it's about the same price.

    you can't really, color banding is a limitation of pretty much all digital cameras

    Don't feel like that! This is a place to learn, we're all here to learn. I've learnt so much from this forum and it would be a shame for you to miss out on that because you don't feel like you can post your photos.

    Anyway about your photo, them tones just around the moon are fantastic. Would be great if you could get to a higher point and take the photo without the foreground. Although i like the sign on the left.

    Was actually wondering before.. how are these photos created? tripod and bulb setting with a long exposure overlooking a highway? any setting in particular you need for these photos to work?

    tripod, manual mode, iso 100, f/8 or so, choose the right exposure for the scene (make it line up on the exp scale) and two second timer to remove any camera shake when you press the button

    Edited:

    Camera Canon EOS Kiss X5
    Exposure 25
    Aperture f/8.0
    Focal Length 18 mm
    ISO Speed 100
    Exposure Bias 0 EV

    You need to take more pics from that location, because those hills look so smooth and perfect.

    Shot these in the school I used to study, any criticism? i'm still very new to this "hobby", if you have anything to say about these, i hope you do, the best thing is to get better in something.

    maybe your isp is being a dick and quietly compressing all jpegs a little bit more

    O2 do that (if you're connecting through a phone), though it's way more obvious because they must have set the quality to something like 2/10

    weird as fuck.

    also if it is a shit monitor, why does it show a wider range?

    Cueball. I was joking. I can just see the black in the screen cap you posted, but i cant see it at all in the original image. Some weird shit going on there.

    Created a makeshift battery for an Old DAT recorder. It's battery is completely dead and just strapping a load of D-cells together got it up and running.

    If it has a wider range you should still be abel to see the black in the picture SHeogorath posted

    just wanted to say cueball you have a good monitor
    i can barely see it on my shitty secondary, but it's p obvious on my ips monitor
    if you can't see it you're either in bad lighting conditions or you have a poorly calibrated/shit monitor
    or you have poor eyesight

    There are a lot of highlighted areas that distract the eye from the subject. Like the ripples in the water for example. They really distract from the girl.

    Edited:

    So my eyes don't naturally focus on the girl but for some reason the water.
