    No, I'm still afraid of RAW I'm worried about how to PP RAW shots. I'll make a point of learning Capture NX this weekend.


    Rooz - gorgeous!!

    Thanks Kellie. The focussing distance of the lens is the same throughout the entire zoom range. This means that you can take pictures of objects at the same short distance from the sensor plane at any focal length. However, the magnification of the object you take a picture of is a lot smaller at 17mm than at 70mm. At 70mm the magnification ratio is 1:2.3 (2.3 cm in real life is projected as 1 cm on the sensor).

    Real macro is defined as being 1:1, so the Sigma lens is actually not a macro lens at all. However, throughout the entire reach of the lens you can take close-up pictures.

    Lately, when I come home after a day of shooting and look at the pics, I've been disappointed. I'm not sure if it's the subject matter, the processing, or what. Any suggestions?

    I've been experimenting with having something in the foreground. It's tough to get everything in focus. Here I used f/16 and focused on the mountains in the background.

    (btw, see that bright blue line on the right side of the sky? It's been showing up a lot of my shots lately, in the original shot. Always on the right. Any idea what's going on? I usually crop it out, but I decided to leave it this time to show you.)

    Practicing portraits. My fat cat is the perfect subject since he doesn't move a lot nor mind his picture being taken.



    Exposure: 0.04 sec (1/25)
    Aperture: f/2.2
    Focal Length: 50 mm
    Exposure Bias: 2/3 EV
    ISO: 640

    So I ask: would a 85mm be better for portraits? I've seen some 85mm lenses used for a reasonable price. I've been thinking of picking one up but haven't quite determined if its worth it or not. This was my 50mm lense. But I am willing to purchase a lense strictly for portraits, since I forsee this being a continuing theme in the future.

    nice one Prospero.

    tor, the photos look overexposed to me. would help if you posted some EXIF data. the subject matter isn't ideal on a day like that either, lots of light browns against light brown. if the sky was bright blue with some clouds and you used a polariser you would likely get a much nicer shot.

    There are subtle nuances between a bog, a hop and a pull, if you know them

    Thanks, Rooz. I edited my post with the EXIF now. The originals were much darker. I posted them in a new thread here: http://www.dcresource.com/forums/showthread.php?t=30930

    It really was a beautiful day, that's what I can't figure out. It was sunny and hot, with blue sky. But I was shooting subjects that were out at the horizon, so not much of the sky showed. Just the paler area near the horizon.
