The IR shots look good to me, and you have some great shots of birds in there too. Keep it up!

Wow. Fifth page already. (Seems it pays off to post trillion posts of spam. )

Ordered lens hoods for my shorter lenses. We'll see if it helps with the flaring. I tried using a polarizing filter with the IR but it seems that it actually made matters worse. Now I'm just waiting for sunny and dead calm day...

I' fairly happy with the shot of seagull against blue sky. (my current wallpaper ) The diving seagull was a bit difficult to catch and it's a bit of a shame that the background is so messy. Out of the latest batch, which I'm really not that satisfied with, I probably like the old lady smelling the flowers shot the most. It was actually quite interesting photographing people paparazzi style.

I'd really like to try portrait photography. Maybe I'll just take one of my friends and resort to threatening with violence.

Edit: Got the lens hoods. Seems it took care of the flaring quite nicely.

I've been doing some catching up with an old friend of mine, Al Cohol. Celebrating the first day of my summer vacation.

Here's a booze powered sig batch for my personal use. Mostly just cropsigs with some tweaking, made out of images found in folders of slightly more questionable content.

Enjoy. I'm going to bed.

I'll be deprived of my photoshop for the rest of the week. Going to the countryside. So a quick update before I'm off to eat mosquitoes.

Couple of freebie sigs.






And some avies I've used. All up for grabs if someone wants my leftovers.



As a heads up. A new photography batch coming up as soon as I get back home.

Thanks. So... You wanted more photos? See below.

Thanks. They're just cropsigs with some tweaking though.


Okay. It's time for the first batch of pictures taken at my expedition of Loppi.
IR-shots coming up first. More to come as soon as I find time to process them.






















This was an experiment of combining IR-shot with regular photo. Vastly different exposure times pose a problem since it wasn't perfectly calm. Came out quite interesting anyway IMO. I think I'll experiment with some other post-processing methods later. So I'll probably be posting this photo again since it's the only one I took with and without IR-filter.







I have roughly 700 more shots to go through so it'll take a while.

Did you convert most of your IR shots to a grayscale color scheme?

The animal shots came out nicely. The first two (the chicken and the cat) seem slightly blurred, but the rest are great. The two dogs play fighting is really spectacular, because the dogs seem incredibly clear while the entire rest of the scene is a bit fuzzed out. (This difference isn't as noticable when you view the full-size image.) What aperture setting did you use for that one?

The cat was caught running so the focus is a bit off. Somewhere around her neck actually. (I want a faster camera. ) What happened with the cock I really can't tell.

Aperture in the play fight picture was F/1.8 as it was in most of the photos. I did crop it a bit so the shooting distance was actually a bit higher than it seems.

I'll save the pictures with the EXIF-data in the future.

Forgot to add that I'd wanted to +rep you for the animal shots but I'll have to wait a bit first, apparently.

Question: most of these (and all of the animal shots) were taken without a tripod, right? If I remember right, Canon doesn't have image stabilization built into its camera bodies. Are you using lenses with image stabilization?

All the IR-shots were taken with tripod, all others without. I don't have IS lenses yet. I just might buy a newer version of 18-55mm and 55-250mm lenses that have image stabilizer. Both el cheapo lenses but have excellent draw.

Then it's time for...

Artsy stuff batch








































































Tried something different with IR-shot. Combining normal and IR-picture seems to be a no go before camera mod. Just way too big of a difference in exposure times.


I still have some flower photos, not sure though if I can be bothered to publish them.

Looks great. How did you do the pictures where there are some elements of color, but otherwise the image is all monotone? (Such as the picture with the red desk, the one with the yellow leaf, and the one with the blue lake.) Is it heavy Photoshopping, or is there a different technique?

It's not that heavy photoshopping. Photoshop Lightroom has an option to adjust luminance, saturation and fine tune hue of several colors. Red, orange, yellow, green, aqua, blue, purple and magenta to be exact. Just played around with those options.

I've overall moved to processing most of my photos in Lightroom. It's very limited in comparison to photoshop but much much faster for doing minor tweaks to a bunch of pictures. I actually do mostly color tweaks and cropping to my photos nowadays.

Been quite productive lately.
I'm on vacation and the weather forecast seem that there's going to be quite a bit of stuff to come. Cold and rain coming up.


I made an old photo look tutorial. Click the picture.

Yup. I'm using a script. Found a link to one in Marina's thread. Click!

Made the old photo look to my new header pic for this thread and thought I'd might as well make a tutorial.

Here's where it all begun.


Edit: Whoa. 100th post.


Edit 2: New siggy.
