Howdy there pones.
I have noticed that we have art threads, story threads music threads, heck even nice cool voice threads.

Also people have been sharing some pretty nature photos lately so i thought:

how about something new?
cameras in phones getting better and better and better with some cool settings. Why not take this opportunity for a small weekend challange?

People whom are educated photographers could help pin point newbies and what not or not  it´s a free idea of a thread.

we have a entire weekend ( we can adjust the "rules" later on ) to take some photos and then we can upload it on that sunday?


Really good idea, I applaud it.

Do we have educated photographers?

In any case, sounds like fun. I'll definitely snap a few images as long as the category isn't "selfies"!

i unno if we have. but we have many talented people in this village. i would not be surprised if one or two photographers lurked around

im not gonna promote selfies, since im will NEVER join that category, could be nature, moving objects, catching different lights. stuff like so

I paid a bunch of money on my camera, but frankly, my cell phone gets me better pictures.

Funny thing, I'll be out with the kids tomorrow, but I'm not sure if I will get to touch the camera as they'll likely be running around with it all the time.

I'm asking my sister for some tips right now. She took some classes and actually had a license at one point. If she gets back to me before the weekend is over, I'll post them.

Ah, I guess I was mistaken. She said she hasn't taken classes.

I suppose I assumed she did because she was really good and had some of her art hung up in a few salons.

I would hope no one here would put people down like that. Art is art, it's subjective.

But it is fun to kind of say "ooh that one's my favourite!"

I changed it t F because most of the posters here are American. 60F is just a bit too warm for me, but nothing too bad. The rain is my problem. It’s been near constant all week.

I wouldn't call myself educated, but I've certainly learned a thing or two from trial and error.

>60F is just a bit too warm for me
meanwhile I'm here in 78F under a blanket

funny enough, after a year or two in Okinawa Japan, I shifted my thermometer to Celsius because most of the temp gauges over there are in C. I got pretty used to it eventually.

60C isn't immediately fatal actually. not 12 months ago I had to walk around in that. Downed 2 500ml bottles of water on my 400m walk to the food court through a sandstorm. was fun.

Oh! I wish I had known about this. I don't think I took any pictures this weekend.

I like the winding railroad with the brush growing in. The wood and the metal and the crane are appealing as a composition, but I might left-crop the picture a little.

It's hard to do that kind of stuff without the right lens.

it wasn't. I was being sarcastic. A sandstorm is brutal in and of itself. braving 60F heat at the same time, and all because the brass didn't want to let us have food at our tents? not fun. definitely the opposite of fun. Did I mention I drank two entire water bottles during a quarter of a mile walk?! I was still thirsty after. Sandy deserts dry you out.

it happens

you have some of the most high profile food adventures I've ever seen, Moony. Have you ever eaten at a Cracker Barrel?

I did get to use my camera. But I don't consider it appropriate to bring them in this thread where people actually have been so very skillfull so far to tear down the level here with my sad attempts.

Maybe I'll keep them for a random moment in the future.


But...why? I don't think skill level matters.

I just took random freakin pictures of pretty trees.

I thank you all posters for so many pictures. ive been the shittiest OP for never delivered anything to the table.

Might gonna try today when hiking along the villages. but ive already shared my many many old pictures. so gonna try something new!

Skill level is the smallest bi factor!
this is NOT a competition!

just a small motivating way to go outside/ inside and take picture to learning something new.

As bob ross said it best "happy accidents"
go and catch something beauty with that camera of yours!

again i can only give my deepest apologies for not shared nor even taking a single photo.

You seem unhappy about photography.  I'm sorry.

Hi, Moony!

It was a good thread.  I used to do lots of photography, and I've been slaking.  Reminds me I need to regain my discipline, or at least try.


I mean, not like I use my camera for much other than taking pics of sketches so I can work on them on my computer. Otherwise I would lov to add something in here.

SO! if you have a mirrorless digital camera that you can swap lenses. there are companies that sells adaptors for em. so you can almost toss ANY sort of vintage lenses onto em

so gonna experiment with those this weekend

Interesting, some older lenses.  I  have a Tamron 500mm f/8 mirror lens I use for astrophotography.  I've done some wildlife with it, but it's awfully slow.

Good luck experimenting.  :)

I have this one while I was at a Renaissance thing, though. It was a really fun event.

Well, keep in mind, this was with my old phone that had a camera that rivaled most standard off-the-shelf cameras.
I believe it was a Lumia 1020. Camera just straight up juts off the thing. It was great.
Sadly, the screen broke, so I had to get a new one. It's a bit out of date by now, anyway.

I mostly have photos of things I had picked up, and wanted to show people. Some threadstarters, often enough. Good times. Hard to believe that was something closing on six years ago, though.


ah i see, well if still out of date. one can toy with setting,no?

Used to be able to, when I had it. Best part was, there were apps that let you really take it to the next level.
I never really did that much with them, though. Mostly because photos tended to be a more 'in the moment' thing for me.

They seem rather uncommon around here. Not sure why, maybe they're just really hard to spot. Mantises are one of my favorite bugs, though.

Looking through this stuff, I'm reminded of all the interesting photos I got from just in my car. Maybe I ought to get a small one to keep in there, for these neat random events.

The shots look sharp, thanks for sharing.  Is that the 135 mm f/2.8?  The mirrorless must be nice for manual focus, I assume you can get a 1x view, maybe a bit harder on the battery, though.

there, now less ashamed by this camera lens


OK.  Yeah, one of the things you lose on old lenses is the tagging.  So do you have f-stop rings on your lenses?  >>985092
Oh, yes, that looks better.  :)

F-stop rings...?
( sorrie... im  totally new to this? )
and ill soo agree.
clean towel,quetips and isopropanol and take time and cirkular motions.
it looks more fresh now ><


Well, your electrical camera interface won't let you stop down the old lens.  If you're lucky, you'll have a manual setting on the outside of the lens (I've never used such a lens, but I've heard they exist).  If you're unlucky it will be a mechanical interface to the camera -- a little bar and you'll have to take the lens off to set your stop.


File: 1569159650140.png (56.93 KB, 515x393, 515:393, Trash_cleaning.png) ImgOps Google

there´s a ring that i can dail. making the picture slighter lighter/darker
and ive shot all these fully manuell adjusting it all


Oh, excellent.  I guess they also call them aperture rings.  >>984776
This one I can tell is stopped down -- not wide  open, or as bright as possible.  You can see hexagons in the out-of-focus region, the shape is formed by the aperture blades.  You'll see it if you look through your lens as you change the aperture ring setting.


ah right, right. as ive stated im "shooting" in the dark trying to learn what works and what don't

>one interesting HUGE mirror lens
I have some experience with those.  It's the cheapest (and lightest) way to get telephoto reach, but due to the way they are built, the images are a little soft and low contrast.

Here are some pictures with my 500mm f/8 mirror lens, with post-sharpening.  Got it for about $100 used.


hmm. looking at this dudes videp


Noticed he said if you have a DSLR, he'd not recommend a mirror lens.  I don't find the lens especially sharp,  but it may be the trouble focusing through the viewfinder.  I had previously blamed it on spherical aberration.  The pictures in the video look fine.


File: 1569168240762.png (92.37 KB, 500x394, 250:197, Trash_messy.png) ImgOps Google

hmm im warned bout it. but if the lesns is about 20€ i might try it. and i don't have a small view finder on the camera. just the lcd display


Yeah, you'll be fine that way.  I may have to do some tests, perhaps with something slanted slightly toward the lens.  If any region is sharp, then I'll know it can be sharp with proper focus.  That would be good to know.  Proper refractive telephotos are heavy and affairs to mount.


Ooh do all tests and report back <3
also i found i can buy a remote for the cmaera ( since the eos M1 has a stupid way to take long exposed pictures ) but having a good tripod and steady hands it should be good!

yee, on the canon eos m. i have to set the expose to "bulb" and then hold the camera push button for how long i want to take it.

Oh, I try to get to the local parks to see the trees and animals when I have the discipline.

Huh.  You know, I never tried that.  That'd probably work for mine too (but I don't want to stand there holding the button).

Mine locks in the on position for long exposure.

Sounds cool.  In gadgets the high-fail parts are what moves, getting rid of the mirror movement (and perhaps the mechanical shutter) will increase reliability.  You could do time-lapse with less worry.

>vlogger recoder
And sometimes I think it'd be nice to use my fancy lenses for video (although that's a whole new area to learn).

Mirrorless is probably the future.  I've got to go to bed soon, but I'll leave you with a squirrel picture I like from some years ago (when I was more productive).

>vintage lenses
My interest is in the best value, I guess, with a focus on small animal portraits and astrophotography (also interested in optical science).  I like to wait until stuff cycles into the used market, 4-10 years old, but it's not usually vintage like you're looking at.  I don't have much storage space, so my plan is to restrict to lenses that see heavy use.  Perhaps as a tie-in with history, vintage lenses could be interesting in their own right.

The picture is pretty cool.  I just lift most from derpibooru (https://derpibooru.org/632992?q=camera%2Csafe), so credit to the artist there.

I'm excited to check whether I can get the expected sharpness with mine.  With bidding sites, usually persistence pays off, sometimes auctions ending at weird times or something can some in under the mean.

Perhaps I should do a write-up of my equipment experience.  My experience has reflected the reviews I read before buying the stuff, so I have little new to add (at least if the soft images from the mirror lens is operator error).

If space weren't an issue, if I had a garage and a yard or something, I think getting into grinding your own telescope mirrors could be fun.  But that's not really practical for me now.    What I can work with is algorithms for processing images.

AH! i applaud to you, dear flower. For credit the link and artist!

yea. again ive never dared to bid in things that´s outside my country reach. so ive been lurking and seeing some cool lenses that i might lurk at

that´s a wise thing to do.
as for now i lurk the auctions, see a lens. Hop onto youtube and see what people say about it.
However im starting to feel over whelmed with all zoom lenses. so maybe i should write some stuff down ( and lable the cases so i can start to learn which work with what )

>grinding your own telescope mirrors could be fun.
i have deep respects for you.
i would never dare to do such a thing

>For credit the link and artist!
Oh, no problem.

>never dared to bid in things that´s outside my country reach.
Shipping's cheaper that way, I expect.

>im starting to feel over whelmed with all zoom lenses.

Over time, I think, a person finds their niche, then tunes their equipment to it.  When I started, I shunned zoom lenses, figured for a range of focal lengths engineers would have to compromise on any given focal length, plus the cost would be higher.  I never really checked the claim, though, so am not putting it forward as true.  I got my first zoom a month or two ago.  Only complaint so far, if you tilt it up or down, gravity causes it to zoom in or out on its own, so you have to hold it in place sometimes.

>i would never dare to do such a thing
Well, I've not done it either.

Ill post some real nice ones from my family cabin once I get back from my haircut. My phone camera isn't fantastic tho, so fair warning, but the changing aspen will probably make up for it.

Oh cool! Grandpa and I saw a moose on our way to get haircuts!


That elk really has big antlers. You'd think he'd have replaced them by then.

Here's a picture from the car of the countryside here. It's quite pretty when the aspen change color.

hey insaninater!

>hugs and kajis <3

i have never once seen a moose in my life! i always wanted to tho!

he's actually a mule deer! he's a big guy, and gives no fricks about people!

wow! is that snow i see on that mountain back there? you already have snow on the peaks?


Yup! The snow here rarely goes away. We're actually a bit short on snow this year. The snow bank that supplies the creek on our property is all dried up.

You're welcome to come visit sometime if you'd like. Our cabin can sleep like 30 people potentially, and most of the time nobody is up.
