you guys are getting really good and WBalancing your welding glass shots.
I try, but i always fail to get a decent result, so i end up converting them to black and white

i have already posted this shot here in another thread. sorry!!

Someone should think about making a nice Welding Glass WBalancing Tutorial to share with us! :D

If, meanwhile, someone ones to take a look, HERE (external link) there is also some instructions about the WB of WGlass shots...

;)

Really nice, I tend to go B&W quite a bit or just slightly mad colours to suit the bizarreness of the image. You're right though, we need one of the experts to write us a tutorial on WB in LR and/or PS ;)

Thanks Anke! :)

For what i have been reading about it (trying to learn enough to give a go to a color photo!!) the best ways if to make a Custom White Balance IN CAMERA.
This should be made in the same light condition of where the picture will be taken.
And then, of course, we can always tweak it a little bit further in PP.

I think i will try it this weekend. If i have any decent results i will post them along with the setting i had.

Very nice work everyone
I'm with Anke in preference for slightly (or overboard) mad colours. Have yet to try BW
Somehow using the wglass makes me feel like I'm bucking the trend here so might as well go for broke
Will see if I can get something this weekend maybe after work.
Have been trying to perfect my holder to avoid vignetting. But working a PVC pipe with a junior hacksaw is hard work!
I must admit ... my 6 stop custom order from Formatt arrived a week ago. Gulp...


Endure. In enduring, grow strong.

try to attach it to the hood (inverted on the lens) with some rubber bands...
I think it is the simplest method and easy to put on and off... ;)

That my method on my 28-135 IS

Only works with a reversible petal hood tho, I'm still trying to figure out a way to attach it to the fixed hood of my Sigma 15-30mm

It's a Cokin X-Pro on a Nikon 14-24mm

Would buying a cheep knock off of the cokin filter be a good way to attach the glass to the lens?

Could it be made to fit inside a cokin P holder? I dont want to ruin the one I use to hold all my other filters..

Down the beach early again this morning

30secs @ f8

IMAGE: http://www.pbase.com/image/137630244.jpg

Considering its taken thru a piece of cheap, optically crap glass held onto he front of the lens with a few laccy bands, I'm amazed at the amount of detail I could still pull out of the posts on the right

Look for a local glass cutter. Shouldn't be a problem to cut it to size to fit any filter holder. Naturally you would need to start with something larger...
I had it cut to fit my Cokin X-Pro holder, at least on one side
