    One of my friends had this friend that wanted a couple of pictures of his R6 so we decided to take a little photo shoot of both the R6 and the a Dodge Neon.



    Camera: Nikon D50
    Exposure: 0.067 sec (1/15)
    Aperture: f/5.6
    Focal Length: 18 mm
    ISO Speed: 200

    Any suggestions on either photo would be helpful. The vignetting is from my post processing. I think it adds to the composition to direct your eye towards both the bike and the rim.

    When I try it they always fly away!

    Maybe my aperture is not correct or something? Or should I just buy a D200 instead or one of the KR recommended helium filled lenses? :-)

    A D200 will not solve your problem! This will only be resolved with a D2H or a D2X and a couple of fast primes> If you don't buy one of these the birds will know and will never hover in front of you :-)

    "Darling a guy on a web site told me I needed to spend Aus$5949.00 on a D2Xs body to attach to my Aus$150.00 50mm f1.8 lens so I can get some decent bird shots once or twice a year so I just ordered one. Is that okay?"

    This will probably be my very last post ever on any web site.
    Thanks for the advice.

    I'm glad the original bird pick I posted was a joke otherwise I would be in very serious trouble about now.

    I tried fill flash with the light behind her. Even with the flash turned down as low as it would go it always completely blew out the background. Id show you but i already deleted the RAW files

    r3g,
    If you don't use fill flash next time just try using a white reflector or gold reflector to bounce some of the sun's rays back to her face.

    Nice shot r3g. I think you meant the opposite, because the lower the flash level the more blownout the background would be. With the flash turned up higher the difference between your subject and background would be less so would blow out the background less.
