Apparently we're all in a "We don't care about someone's opinion" mood today. Since everyone seemingly wants to argue matters of opinion, which can't be argued because opinion is simply opinion...let's compare...

And for the record, I never said the shot wasn't cool. I'm just simply giving my experienced opinion, and that is that you don't need a lot of fancy gear to get shots. Maybe you guys missed that part, it must suck going through life with blinders on. It's fact boys and girls, simple, undeniable fact, that you can get the same type of shots without the need for special equipment. Which was my entire point. Whatever problems you people have with comprehending English...not my problem, not my concern. I made simple comments about the ability to get similar shots without the gear, and you all decided it was some type of personal attack.

And if you really want to nitpick...my technique is my technique, and his is his. How can you argue about two different people with two different techniques getting similar shots?? Seems to me that's the entire point of the thread, to "show a setup and the results"...


And you can find cheap triggers on eBay from this guy...Pantelis51 (external link)...if I was so opposed to using special equipment I wouldn't have this guy saved in my favorite sellers list, so that tells you something, doesn't it. People ask how you get shots like that, someone says "I use this special trigger", and I come by and say "You can get similar shots without that trigger"...next thing you know people are all up in arms because I told of an easier way to get the shots. Oops, I guess my experience and knowledge are useless to some.


It's been a little while since I caught up on this thread but I just couldn't resist commenting on the balloon pop saga...

Katodog's whole point was that you don't need fancy gear to get the shot, but if I use a camera that only does 2 fps ant try it 3 times and you use a camera that does 6fps and get the shot the first time, does that mean your expensive 6fps camera is unnecessary and you're not really taking the shot, the technology is? Of course not. Look, unless you're popping a balloon and simultaneously, exposing a piece of film bare handed, you're using technology... Some use more than others... Getting the shot is what matters.

I laughed when you said you tried an air soft pistol. Clearly that's technology that's not necessary... But it was probably fun to try... See?

This is my first portrait photo shooting. I used 2 flash.
First is YN 460 II in homemade softbox.
Second is Canon EX420 behind the curtain.
I used Canon 450D with 18-55mm
What do you think about the photo

I'd have to agree. A little less on the BG or a little more light on the target. Nice simple and great first shot...better than I would manage for sure.

So technically, using a camera at all is cheating? I guess it must be seeing as that is fancy gear.

Its been talked to death now, he was clearly on his period so lets all move on. :D

Astronomy chair. The eyepiece changes height a lot when changing targets (for all types of telescopes). You need a chair that will get your eye to the right height in a relaxed posture (the less your eye is moving, the more you can see). These chairs adjust height easily.

Of course it's not enough for the big telescopes... http://www.cruxis.com/​scope/scope1070.htm (external link)

Yes, yes I was on my period. Thank you, I'm much better now. I learned a valuable lesson from you guys: Don't give any opinion, nobody has respect for opinion here.


Thank you for that lesson
