Hey gang;

after lurking for a bit I figure I would post up my humble attempts.

The gym is lit like a barn, I need better skills and better glass. This was my first day of shooting in RAW. I am fairly clueless about post processing with DPP. EXIF should be intact, C&C welcome.

Wow, this is really great! I showed this to one of my daughters, and now I have a new assignment for our upcoming season - she wants me to put something like this together for her! :confused: That will be a challenge. Did you just use Photoshop to put this together?

On the same note, I'm trying to determine if I need Photoshop CS, or if Photoshop Elements would suffice for most PP. Any opinions (from anyone?)

I *finally* got my 85mm f/1.8 lens from Amazon yesterday - took 2 weeks for it to arrive! (That's what I get for using super saver shipping.) But now the fun can begin. I took some photos around the house last night and I am already very impressed by the quality! 2 1/2 weeks until our first meet so I need to practice a lot until then.

Mark

I think you can do very well with PSE. If you use DPP to make some of the RAW corrections and then load the image into PSE for making the poster, you'll do fine. As a matter of fact some of the basic will be easier in PSE than PS. I started with PSE and upgraded once I felt limited. Took a year or two. PSE really helped me get acclimated to PS. Also, check out this site: Photoshop Elements User (external link)

I recommend you join the forums there and I recommend a subscription to the newsletter because of the access it gives you to a plethora of tutorials and how to videos. Well worth the investment in my book. Too bad they don't pay me a referral fee! :)

Jdando, I think you are being too hard on yourself. Those are fine photographs. The EXIF data isn't in tact, but nonetheless it doesn't detract from the images. Especially if you are using the equipment in your signature.

This is the place to ask about PP with DPP, PS and PSE. Lot's of folks here ready to help.

Welcome to the thread.

I'm using Firefox (Exif Viewer) and I can see it fine. Both shots using @ f/2.8, ISO 1600 at 90mm. Do you borrow a 70-200 f/2.8 then?

Welcome to the dungeon, Jeremy! :D

Thanks for the welcome Mike. I borrowed a 90mm Tamron F2.8 macro lens for these shots. It is just too dark in the gym for my other lens:(

I have ordered a 50mm F1.4, hopefully it will address some of the lighting issue.

You are going to struggle with the 50 f1.4 controlling the DoF. You may get the nose perfectly sharp while the eyes are blurred. Focusing is going to be your toughest challenge.

I am confused? Assuming I will be 10 feet away, shooting F2.0 wouldn't the depth of field be about 1 foot? At 40 feet away would it be 15 feet.

thanks,

A Little Christmas Spirit...

So I have been hangin' around here for a while now and I thought I might just send out a friendly thanks to all the posters here that allow newbies like me to quickly get information before events that is VERY useful! It sort of reduces the whole trial and error thing to a less painful process:D! Unfortunately, I am my own worst critic, so it might be a while before I am brave enough to post! (though it is reassuring to know that you guys are pretty easy on the newbies!). However, I was hoping that you might help me expedite that process (me posting pictures to be proud of). Could anyone here refer a book (with lots of pictures or diagrams:D) that would help explain the relationships between the ISO, shutter speed, and aperature (I think I have that right?:oops:) that I can ask for this Christmas? You're help would be much appreciated. I would also be curious as to what's on your wishlist?!? Best wishes this holiday season and good health to you and your athletes in the New Year!


Some stuff... but never enough!

Understanding Exposure by Brian Peterson... That book cracked the code for me.

My wish list is too long to list, I'm an amateur photographer, after all.

Agreed. Get it and read it twice.....

As an old fart that taught classes...you need to start at square one. The learning curve is short and you can accelerate quickly, but knowing what you are doing with the light you have available is critical. In fact I would argue it is more important than knowing the finer points of the camera you use....

I try and shoot my primes at F1.8 or higher because the DOF gets so darn shallow. But it does depend on distance....

An XT with a 50mm lens @ f1.4 and 12 feet from the subject provides a DOF of 11".

You can calculate your own here: DOF Table (external link)

Hi All,

What a proud day. I have to say that this article got me a little misty eyed. This is a local newspaper that came in and interviewed my little monkey.
