    Pic(s) you took today - an open thread

    Wasn't today, was 2 days ago but just put them on my Mac and edited the raw file in capture NXD. My friend has been a big help modelling, and enjoys doing it. I wanted to practice with my backdrop. Sorry for the shadows and lighting, I haven't yet been able to afford anything else so am using...

    Yesterday nearly went very wrong- sad world we live in.

    Unfortunately I live here. We moved to get away from London when I was younger, as we used to have a caravan on kings ourselves! We used it in the summer and school breaks for holidays. My family liked here compared to London, so we moved. It's turned into a right S**thole now, people are...

    Beginner Filter not fitting my lens.

    There is that symbol, I Never checked and wasn't aware this was the diameter of the thread. At least I now know for the future, I just ordered the lens without realising there were 2 different ones with different sizes.

    Beginner Filter not fitting my lens.

    I know it's a joke, but I'm pretty broke at the moment. A new lens will be purchased as soon as I can afford it for my needs ;)

    Beginner Filter not fitting my lens.

    Ahh balls, it is 55! Thats strange though, I have the D3500 which I would of expected to be the newer version so smaller. Hopefully the seller will be understanding of my mistake.

    Yesterday nearly went very wrong- sad world we live in.

    Well as long as your real name isn't John, you're not my Dad lol. I don't know mine and have been trying to find him for years, but I was born in London and not from a Canvey Shag lol. Nothing has changed on that front, easy girls everywhere! I wholeheartedly accept your apology if it was one of...

    Beginner Filter not fitting my lens.

    Hi everyone, I bought a filter online for my Nikon 18-55 f 3.5-5.6G VR as I lost the lens cap, and thought a filter will save me taking it on and off all the time. However, it turned up today, it says it is a 52MM filter but when I try to put it on, it fits inside but doesn't screw in, and...

    Yesterday nearly went very wrong- sad world we live in.

    You know what, you are right, I had completely forgotten it had changed. I said to the lady when I am at a level to get paid for my work, I will gladly take out another check. I am not getting payed for my work and am just enjoying my hobby at the moment. When I was at work I knew plenty of...

    Yesterday nearly went very wrong- sad world we live in.

    Where are you from mate? Canvey is getting worse and worse. I felt safer at Notting hill carnival with my camera than where I live! I am/was no angel when I was younger though and I admit that, so I feel a bit safer walking around being known by people. Luckily I know a lot of people on...

    Yesterday nearly went very wrong- sad world we live in.

    Thinking back, I probably did drop myself in it, even though I meant no trouble. My thought process isn't the best due to my brain damage, but I will be aware for the future and just trust my feelings if something feels off. I just didn't want to take the pictures, then they tell someone, and...

    Yesterday nearly went very wrong- sad world we live in.

    @jpgreenwood , that is a beautiful thing to hear. We really are lucky in the lottery of where we were born, we could easily have been one of those villagers. Just seeing themselves on a screen bought them joy. @tijuana taxi , I do think it is to do with all this PC rubbish, and also most women...

    Yesterday nearly went very wrong- sad world we live in.

    @woof woof , I do think some of the kids genuinely wanted a photo, while a few of the others were out for trouble. Theres a big problem with gangs of youths on Canvey at the moment, the older ones that came were some of them so I guess they was their younger siblings. I was glad the way I...

    Yesterday nearly went very wrong- sad world we live in.

    Hi everyone, I'm a bit peeved with something that happened yesterday, and essentially being accused of being a paedophile until I spoke to the parent of some kids. I was in my local town centre practising, taking shots of buildings etc that I will upload to a facebook Canvey island then and now...

    Abandoned building inside and McLaren car.

    I'm not really up on cars, just thought it was really nice. I know the first photo isn't very good, but could you give me any feedback or constructive criticism on the car? I want to improve myself so it would be a big help. EDIT: changed thread title to include McLaren.

    Is this enough for now graphics wise?

    @scott199 I was torn between the non retina and retina model due to upgrading, but when a businessman had the retina model on eBay for just £575 with free shipping as he had been given a new work computer, I snapped it up as it was about £150-200 cheaper than others, plus when I got it it was...

    Abandoned building inside and McLaren car.

    Here are a couple of photos I have tried editing, one was an abandoned building me and my friend went into when it was dark, taking photos with flash and using out phones as torches, noticed the bag on the floor. Turned out to be rags, probably put there as a joke. I tried to edit that one to...

    Is this enough for now graphics wise?

    It's the retina version. It was a huge upgrade to me, managed to go from 8-12 tracks before system overload to 100+ with logic. I hope its enough, even if it takes a little while can always leave it running I guess till it's finished? All my money is going on the gear I need at the moment plus...

    Is this enough for now graphics wise?

    Hi everyone, I'm still pretty new to editing my photos but finally have LR and PS. I have a 2013 15 inch MBP, which I bought as an upgrade to my 2010 13 inch model. It was for music production and works fantastically, but now I am using it for editing photos I wanted to ask if it is enough...

    Beginner Auto ISO in A, S, M mode.

    Thank you, the I button is what I have been using, just have to select from a few options using the buttons on the back after pressing the I button. Not that it really matters when I am going to be shooting in controlled light, just likely to miss a shot doing that if out and about which is why...

    Beginner Auto ISO in A, S, M mode.

    I just tried it, definitely doesn't work in Manual mode with auto ISO, but I do notice something strange. Under the ISO sensitivity settings menu, there are the options ISO sensitivity, Auto ISO sensitivity control on/off, maximum sensitivity, and minimum shutter speed. I notice if I go into...

    Beginner Using a Microphone stand (boom arm removed) with adapter as temporary tripod, and studio spares but for camera gear?

    Hi everyone, I am slowly building up the bits I need for a basic home studio, and have a question regarding a Tripod. I already have a studio for my other love, music production, and upon looking at camera tripod prices, was wondering if anyone has any experience using a Microphone stand...

    Lightroom classic or Lightroom?

    @RichardC27 , thank you for explaining to me how to do the workaround so I can use cloud storage. Sorry to sound dense, what is a Smart preview? I've only so far been using it on my MBP, but as it doesn't go towards the 20GB cloud storage sounds great. @Faldrax , thanks for letting me know of...

    Beginner Auto ISO in A, S, M mode.

    Unfortunately I don't :(. This was something I wasn't really aware of when I got the camera/could be an issue. I believe the last D3xxx series camera to have it was the D3400. @Ed Sutton , wait I can use exposure compensation in manual with auto ISO on Nikon? If I press the exposure...

    How much RAM in a MacBook Pro?

    I upgraded last year from my 2010 13" Core 2 Duo to a Early 2013 Retina 15" with 8GB RAM and 2.4GHZ i7, and I really was blown away. Granted, this was for my main hobby, music production, but was amazed at the performance boost. My old model hit system overload errors with just 8 tracks using...

    Lightroom classic or Lightroom?

    Hi everyone. I have managed to budget so I can now use Lightroom, but am unsure which version is best for me to go for. Lightroom classic sounds good as my files are stored locally on my SSD's and hard drives, and it seems that classic also offers apply preset on import, prints and photo...

    Beginner Does anyone else use DIY equipment?

    Doh, I didn't notice the flower shots! I can see the improvement between the without and with photos. You mention it moves the light source forward as the lens doesn't block the light, doesn't the plate block it even more though? Sorry if it's a silly question, I'm just trying to learn as much...

    Beginner Auto ISO in A, S, M mode.

    Thats an issue with my camera, one I didn't know would be an issue till I actually started learning. I have a Nikon D3500, and to set the ISO I have to press the info button, and use the buttons to go to ISO, click on it, then choose from there. I tend to be walking around taking photos, so the...

    Beginner Auto ISO in A, S, M mode.

    This is one issue I have been having, I am glad you mentioned that! It seems that either the ISO skyrockets when the shutter speed could still go lower, or if I set the shutter speed limit it goes too low with the ISO not changing much. When you say setting the lower limit, would that mean...

    Beginner Auto ISO in A, S, M mode.

    Hi everyone, I've been enjoying using my camera since I first got it, and feel I am improving. Still have a long way to go though. I use auto ISO on my Nikon in Aperture priority, Shutter priority and manual. Does anyone else do this, or do you prefer to set your ISO yourself? I find it a...
