Lame? I don't know, I think it looks interesting. She's photogenic. What's more is that she sat for you. :D

For 2 or more people in a photo - what do you guys do for focus - manual and hope for the best?

Well, it depends on the relative position of the two people. If they are roughly in the same plane, then I do what I've done forever: focus on one of them and recompose. If they are not in the same plane, then you either prioritize or focus somewhere in between and stop down. Worked on a Canon AE-1 and works today with AF. Helps to move the focus to the * button.

That reminds me of a lomography shot. How did you do this?

Hey everyone :)
I've owned my XSi for about 9 months now and I seriously LOVE it... I actually just joined the site hoping I could find more pointers and tricks to this thing, and looks like I came to the right place! Anyways... Here's a couple of my favorite shots at the moment, any suggestions are welcome

Here's a few from the nifty fifty...I don't use this lens enough!

I don't use my 50 much either - I should go out and use it for things like shallow "DOF"

With the photo of the water pump, I was just messing around with DOF. When I started to edit it, I decided I liked the tones and textures of the photo, along with the sharpness. It truly IS an amazing little lens for the $$$.

Rick I love those pictures...awesome shots!!
What lens were they taken with?

The first two were with the 75-300mm I picked up on EBay for $100, and the last one was with the kit 18-55mm lens.. Pretty good images with some less then stellar lenses, just show how good this camera really is.. :)

thanks for the comments !!

Dudes & Dudettes: Is there a way to configure the 450D to shoot in Sepia? I know there is monochrome.

I've tried to adjust the saturation, etc, but it has not worked with what I've tried. I know I can post process but would like to shoot in Sepia at certain times.

Thanks!

There is a way in camera. (I'm at work so I don't have my camera with me.)

You can either customize a picture style or you can create a custom picture style. You have to go into one of the menus, select a monochrome style, go into Set Details (I'm looking at a downloaded manual). In monochrome, you can also set filter effect (colored filters) and toning effect, which is where you can choose sepia.

If you shoot RAW, DPP will also allow you to go to sepia from color.

Good luck!
