  1. Post some pics thread...

    A little family cemetery (well I only counted two different family names amongst couple of dozen plots) near Wivenhoe. Nikon f4, 50mm lens, fp4 @ 80 iso, ilfosal3 @ 4 mins.

    Like I said, a box with a very small hole in it. Has a 52mm thread so I can use a filter, maybe could slow it down further with an ND filter Actually you can use photo paper which is a lot cheaper than negative film and most recommend a yellow filter and pre fogging/flashing the paper to cut down on contrast. Anyhow should be able to get some interesting seascapes and water fall type pictures.

    I bought an 8 x 10 pinhole camera. A box with a very small hole, cant get much more low tech than that. Very wide lens angle of about 100 degrees. Had the tripod in the fountain. Didnt get quite the frame I wanted. 10 minute exposure on 100 iso film, contact print and a print scan. Pretty sharp in the middle.

    A back yard in pristine condition. When I was a boy the hills Hoist was the only piece of play equipment any child had...or needed. Even has the old incinerator up the back.
  7. Which DSLR Camera to Buy ?

    There are plenty of mirror less cameras that have interchangeable lenses as Buddyev has mentioned. Personally I think DSLR's (has a mirror) are a great way to learn photography, but its just a tool and to get the best out of it you need to know how to use one, which requires lessons. If your not hung up on getting new you can get a very capable second hand camera with lenses for half (or even less) of what a new camera costs and as you use it you will get a better understanding of what you want. I prefer film these days, like digital music, digital photos have never done it for.
  8. Which DSLR Camera to Buy ?

    What ever you can beg borrow or steal, then spend the money on lessons. It takes a lot of skill and understanding to take consistently good photos. Other wise just get a good point and shoot camera and forget about bird close ups.

    The tide was on the run out Ill have to fire up the enlarger and do it again, crop it as well.
  12. Post some pics thread...

    I bought some cheap second hand carded filters and holder to play with. Not very well composed, the tide was beating me, was lapping the tri pod by the time I fired the Mamiya medium format. Still nice effect using a 4 stop ND. Nudgee Beach. Using 2 filters a half red for the sky and a half blue for the water. Again should of composed it better, but did a 50/50 shot to see what the filters would do. Most shots on the roll were badly exposed, because I didnt know how much compensation to give, know now. This is a 8 x 10print scan, 2 x stop graded burn of sky and 1 stop graded doge of the post and potassium ferricyanide on the white wash. Scotts Point.
