He wasn't in a silo, he was a systems engineer helping design them. Some where I may have a picture of a mobile launch vehicle undergoing a cold test. I couldn't believe they could get a room that big that cold that icicles would be hanging off the whole thing.
This really has me confused now. Here's the same shot (tripod wasn't moved) taken with the same lens only on the A7iii in a room that was darkened as much as possible within reason.
Flare is still there.
Is the sensor stack problem really that bad?
I've never run into this before using these...
Continuing to experiment here a little. I can't seem to find the old program that I could smear the edges of a cut 'n paste section of a photo with. Capturing smoke at the same exposure level as the rest of the back drop is proving problematical.
John - I have a flood light I use when photographing my wife's quilts. It's a little much to set up just for these shots and I enjoy using the available light and trying to get the shot to look good. I'm retired with nothing better to do with my time. What can I say?
I do have an idea for making...
Changed the back drop to grey, switched off the stabilization and noise reduction in camera, cranked down the aperture to f18 and this is what I got.
Indirect lighting from the semi-closed blinds on the front windows only.
SOOC except for cropping.
Did I tell you I was having fun?
Since I had the 'studio' set up already, I did some simple light painting last night once it got dark outside and I could get the room dark easily. Had the TV on but it wasn't that much of a factor IMO.
I need to work out a different way to hold the back drop up as it doesn't quite clear the...
Here's my latest effort at PP and light from the front window and door only. None from the front end of the loco except for reflected off the wall.
With the reduction in size that'll be required to fit the label, I don't think I need to worry about much more definition on the front details.
I don't have any flashes available any more as I gave my only one to my sister when I sent my D7000 to her down in Australia. These photos were all taken with available light from the front and side window of my, uh, studio such as it is.
I hold the back drop up using a yard stick that it's...
I'm trying to replicate a label shot for a box for my latest train locomotive acquisition.
I'm working on getting the 'shot' portion of the label.
Here is a really bad photo crop of what I'm trying to make for my box which is missing the flap that would have the label on it from the factory...
Someone donated a beautiful locomotive to the Goodwill store up in Spokane WA and I was lucky enough to win the auction for it. Unlike my last GW locomotive, this one requires no work to get it running and it all works like it should, including the smoke! This will pull my wife's Christmas train...
Not sure if this was directed at me or not but here's my answer.
No, you don't need to remove the grip to change the battery.
You do have to loosen the screw three turns or so to allow the pin(s) to release from the bottom of the camera. Then you can pivot the grip out of the way as shown here...
I was halfway set to go to the Belmont Shore car show which is a BIG annual event here in SoCal, but then it started to rain @5:30 this morning. I'm not sure if it's a rain or shine event so I'll stay home and watch the Indycar race from Laguna Seca.
It was a tad pricey for what it is, but it does do its job perfectly and makes holding the camera a lot easier as your pinky finger has a resting spot. Allows a lot firmer grip IMO. I found mine used at B and H Photo.
