My Trips and Vacations
« on: April 28, 2014, 12:26:51 pm »
I'm just going to use my own thread for this from now on.  To start I'll be posting photos from my last 3 or four trips/mini vacations etc.  Some photos are going to look under/over-saturated depending on whether or not I used an iMac for editing.

NYC for the auto show.  I took no photos at the show   :thumbsup:

Also forgot my tripod AGAIN.  Wish I had it for this trip considering most photos were taken at night.

You do take some very nice pictures. Any filters used?
Understeer is when you're going along the road and you turn a corner, the car goes straight on - you hit a tree ...and you die. Now oversteer is when you drive down the same bit of road come to a corner, the back comes round - you hit a tree..... and you die. The thing to remember is that oversteer is best, because then you don't see the tree that kills you!

I edit them using a free online editor because PS and GIMP are too complicated XD

Impressive. You have a good eye for photos - something most people lack yet think they're awesome photographers because they have a DSLR and filters.

PS and GIMP are pretty easy. I've learned most of the features just from googling. A class would be good to be introduced to the full capability of the program, however.

Wow, you're a really good photographer.

It is now no more that toleration is spoken of as if it was the indulgence of one class of people that another enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural rights. For happily, the government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens, in giving it on all occasions their effectual support. - George Washington

Those are awesome photos. And I know it's definitely skill, because I have the same camera + a lot more lenses, and my stuff comes out like shit in comparison.

With the 50mm it's mostly manual, but when I use the kit lens I either use scene selection or intelligent auto.  But I alsways fine tune the focus eve with auto focus on.

With the 50mm it's all manual including focus, unless I'm in a hurry.

Beautiful pictures, Cale.  Really stunning.  I wish I had your ability for photography.

They are indeed great.

Where most people (start to) go wrong is that they don't compose the picture correctly........ technology will correct a lot of technique flaws, but if the pic is ill-conceived in the first place, no amount of technology (short of brutal editing/trimming etc) is going to make it any better.

You're my age.  We're getting old.  Plus, now that you're married, your life expectancy has gone way down, since you're more likely to be poisoned by your wife.

It's not just the camera. I've got the same setup, same lenses (plus a view), and my shit doesn't come out nearly as well.

Lol. I've been too lazy to shoot in RAW and edit everything. I hope when I do that, I'll get some photos close to this level.
