Well im certainly glad to be back on TP after somewhat of a long holiday, had some great fun on saturday, although come monday morning must say i was a touch sore (possibly from my cliff hanging antics)
I am also completely lost with the new forum software so if someone could give me a quick...
Right then, first off im glad to be back with the TP family, last weekends meet went fantastically well, and those that didnt get much time with me, hopefully that can be sorted for the next meet. Im currently working upon sorting work issues around the proposed date, and will train someone up...
Right guys and girls, I may of started this thread prematurely however, This autumn (dates to be finalised but looking at last week of sept) myself and a good friend will be embarking on the Coast to Coast challenge for a charity close to my heart which is Bethany's Trust www.bethanyswish.co.uk...
Ok very random but delving through my flickr stats today i stumbled across this thread, i am not entirely sure why sean has linked one of my photos as his, seeing this is a thread regarding football, and my photo is of a startrail???
Not to sure on the composition to be honest, i dont like all the cut off gravestones in the foreground, it makes it all look a touch too busy for me, maybe a slightly different angle would work better.
As matt said the trails could do with being a bit more dramatic, it looks as if it was a...
cracking work with the wool, and a cool location, but i think the foreground would befenit from just a touch of lightpainting, not so much that you lose the entire idea behind the photo, just enough to bring out some more detail
That aint a bad price at 145 at all, the 17-50 is obviously a much superior lens i would hire one ibknow what you mean about wastimg money but at least you will get a feel for the lens.
Lenses for hire are fantastic and would recommend them
I have a 17-85 and it is not a bad lens for its price, it does suffer quite badly with chromatic aberrations but camera raw has a profile toncorrect this and does a pretty decent job. The other thing to watch out for is the lens has a known issue with the af motor which if I remember correctly...
I use an old 135mm hoya 1.8 m42 mount on my canon occasionally, if you grasp manual focus then you can produce some very good results but it is a bit tricky and not ideal for fast moving subjects.
I picked the m42-ef adapter for under a tenner off ebay
I used to use cf-sd adapters and really cant recommend them, I found they are unreliable and even with a fast sd card in them the adapter will slow you down as it cannot write to the card at decent speeds
The magic lantern is extracted to your sd card via a pc, then the additional firmware is recognised by the camera once the card is inserted, you must ensure that you have the latest official canon firm ware on the camera before you try to run ML else the body will nit recognise it
