    Re: Experimental Photos

    Not sure there is a right way, it depends on the subject matter. I mostly shoot manual settings too but for me with wildlife and birds, the Shutter Speed is the first selection.

    With 15 mm you would have a lot of latitude with all settings. Getting a balanced exposure through out the image is the real challenge. HDR can be a great help.

    (Photos taken today 3-dec-18)

    This ole house once knew his children
    This ole house once new his wife
    This ole house was home and comfort
    As they fought the storms of life

    This ole house once rang with laughter
    This ole house heard many shouts
    Now he trembles in the darkness
    When the lightning walks about.

    (Ain't a gonna need this house no longer
    Ain't a gonna need this house no more)

    Ain't got time to fix the shingles
    Ain't got time to fix the floor
    Ain't got
    time to oil the hinges
    Nor to mend no window panes
    Ain't gonna need this house no longer
    He's getting ready to meet his fate


    There are a few good ones in this 4, well done.

    The 15mm is a great lens, but cost a small fortune. So I bought it in Thailand, still ... round the 1.5K mark.

    It's very forgiving. I really need glasses, reading glasses, but I just use the cheepo magnifiers ... the 15mm allows me so much leeway in errors that I can nearly always get a good crop. I have a really strong tripod, up there in the heavyweight section .. . This is if I'm really concerned about focus, but usually I'm not ....

    But the Tamron 70-300mm is a super fast lens and even despite my ol-mans-shake it can focus and shoot in a nano-second. I'm amazed at some birds-on-the-wing photos, because it certainly ain't me doin the focussing ... heheee. Much faster than the Canon 24-105mm (which also costs a zillion) The Tamron only cost 300.

    And I also have a wireless controller that fires the camera and also allows me to hold the shutter open.

    In fact, if you look at the picture in post number 2, Browne's Shaft ... I stood still for 84 seconds holding the shutter open with the wireless controller. In the pitch black night, as the lights from the city of Broken Hill far below filtered up ... an image of myself, the tripod and the camera were etched onto the corrugated iron wall of the shed .. in shadow form. If you go from the centre of the photo then the 'etch' is towards the edge of the shed at 08:00.

    Thank you

    Those shots are all with the 15mm. f2.8 I think? It's in the bag, in the truck.

    It's not just the lens. The D5 is one of the best cameras around for fast wildlife shots. Let's see some of those?

    ummmm ... I don't really photograph wildlife, or people ...I'm hopeless at that. Mostly I just take my camera when I'm driving and for every 100 shots I only select one or two for the vid. The cull rate is enormous and a video can take me hundreds of hours. This doesn't mean it's any good of course, it's no guarantee, I'm just sayin a vid takes me a real long time.

    I used to like photo albums, when they disappeared I turned to trying to store my shots in slideshows ... boring as all phuck .. but then I realised the potential of editing shots into a sequence that tries to tell a story .... and I got hooked ... .

    Myall Creek Cachement area.


    A peaceful place is Myall Flat. The folk that live around
    they earn their keep by shearing sheep and turning up the ground.
    Bu the climate is erratic and the consequences are
    the struggle with the elements is everlasting war

    We plough and sow and harrow, sit down and pray for rain
    and then
    we all get flooded out and have to start again

    Not sure what truck this is. My best guess is a Reo or a Diamond T

    Not so easy to comment on individual posts when they are lumped into the same thread.
