    Smile A little A100 work ...

    Tonight, in advanced digital, we were toying with depicting movement, so I decided to use the weapons of the Jedi knight ... and see what happens in a rush. It's not as random as a blaster ... just a tool from a more civilized age.

    Using some Photoshop assistance, this came out ...

    EXIF Data: SONY A100 w/ TAMRON 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3
    @50mm - f/10 - 4 sec. - ISO-400 - WB 5500K

    So, even the imaginary can be very real. Just wanted to share something a ... little different.

    I guess it beats being told the the SONY A700 represents a tremendous improvement in APS-C DSLR cameras ... without even having pulled a single shutter release on it.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    School Daze

    Yes, Advanced Digital Photography ... aka ART 220

    The room was fill with other students, which, of course means you had better crop ... but I was just messin' around and this turned out so interesting ... I just let it ride, so to speak.

    Here it is ... with the crop ...

    I guess that works for me, too. Thanks

    So then I experimented on another image ... using a flash ...

    ... into the fray!

    It seems to work for just a experimentation shot ... we had thirty minutes to come up with something.

    Now I'm gonna have to go to walmart and get a couple of differently colored children's light sabers to do this with my girlfriend.
    I wanna digitally capture me whooping her ass.

    LOL.

    Your pic is creative and fun.
    Worst case scenario is the image doesn't come out so well and I delete it.
    Or she loses an eye....

    haha!
    That's funny!

    I remember seeing an impromptu photochop of two womens college lacrosse players crossing sticks; one stick had the blue glow, the other the red.
    It was freakin' hilarious and the owner of the pic laughed for days!

    Cool The A100 can still get a good looking candid, too.

    This was a "family" weekend, when the family came in from out of town and visited. I grabbed the ol' A100 for a couple of candids. My nephew's daughter turned out to be quite a character.

    Great photo, Don! Was this taken with a flash or available light?

    Cool You have to make those adjustments

    Due to the very powerful sun reflecting off our white vinyl fencing, I opted to fill flash the shot with the A100's pop-up, otherwise it would have been quite a bit darker. As it was, I had to adjust it a bit, with the 'shop.

    I find that most outdoor, bright sunlight shots do well with fill-flash. I mean, who wouldn't we you're getting some serious burn, with a three-thirty PM sun and beautifully clear sky.
