    My girlfriend and I slipped into a creek today. Fun stuff. Almost 2 degree C waters. Needless to say we couldn't feel our toes or feet.

    Edited:

    Also, when I see bopie in the bottom of the page with everyone viewing a thread. Why does he have a '+' sign beside his username?

    not sure if it will work 100% but i just finished uploading 70 odd shots to my facebook from a friends gig i got back from 2 hours ago, gonna pick the cream of the crop to edit and upload to flickr/500px. I was just wondering if you guys could maybe pick out a few which stand out to you, these are all straight from my camera too.

    Hopefully this link should work..

    EDIT: Just shocked that i stayed up to even do this! i fell asleep on the bus journey home from the city center because i had woken up 6am saturday and it is now 2:30am sunday and i havent slept. Feeling a bit stupid now.

    For one of my photography projects, I'm supposed to take two pictures. One with depth of field and one with selective focus. But I'm not quite sure I understand what the difference is. Anyone care to help?

    doesn't selective focus rely on DOF?

    maybe your teacher is used to kids taking high DOF pictures with no real point of interest



    it's DOF alright, but the picture doesn't really do much to say anything other than "look at my aperture!", whereas selective focus requires a more apparent point of interest





    or your teacher could just be wonky like some are and have entirely different definitions of things because I AM RIGHT DON'T ARGUE WITH ME

    My idea for that is
    Selective focus


    DOF


    Edited:

    Er wait, the second image says "selective focus" in the URL.

    Hm. Yeah. So let's say I have 2 cameras set on a table. 1 farther in the back and one closer to the camera taking the picture. I have to have 1 DoF and 1 selective focus. Not quite sure how to do it. Focus on one camera then.....? It has to be of the same subject too.

    maybe something like this?

    Those instructions are quite confusing.

    I'll do that, but she might be trying to say one like

    and then one with all the pieces in focus?

    Edited:

    Is it just my monitor or is this slightly pink?

    It looks fine on my camera, but on my monitor it has a pinkish tint.

    Yes it is a shade pink on my monitor as well. I always take camera screens with a pinch of salt. They seem to have great viewing brightness and contrast in comparison to a computer monitor so your photos will usually look better and different in terms of colour rendition and white balance.

    Booked out a Canon 5D mkii with an 85mm 1.2 lens from next thursday to the monday morning.

    So i'm gonna basically travel around London taking self portraits (or with someone) in a few locations i have in mind, so i can take full advantage of the equipment over the short space of time. Should be fun!

    You're gonna love it. Can't wait to see what you do with it.

    Took me forever to get mine, but it was worth every penny. I would love to see what you would do with one, also.

    Take a photo of him getting stoned, smoking in portraits makes them 90% more ~deep~.   At least according to Facebook and Deviant Art

    fuck.

    improvising a tripod isn't easy.

    Edited:

    when you're using a IR remote, do you have to point it directly at the camera or is it enough to just stand pretty much in front of it?

    If you can see the sensor from where you are (within range of course) it will work. If there is enough white near the camera, say a wall, you can get it to bounce a little bit. Pretty much like a TV.

    Before I had radios, I actually ghetto rigged a foil reflector to use an IR remote from behind the camera.

    okay, thanks.
    would you say it's worth the extra cost for a radio one?
