The Photography Thread

3,031 posts in this topic

I rarely take good pics but my friend is a very good photographer. His view is that it's an art so the equipment is only a part of a good photo. A good photographer can take a good photo on any kit but a poor photographer won't take a good photo just because he has a £2000 camera.

Completely agree, my dad had some pretty pricey camera kit available to him, he had a lot of the work cameras as well as his own collection, but he was never a people person when it came to taking photos. He had some fantastic landscapes from all around the world, great shots of boats, trains, buildings, but when it came to trying to take pictures of people it looked like a drunks first encounter with a camera (he was tea total before anyone asks).

 

My dad took a lot of photos at our wedding and offered to put together an album for us of his pics...which became quite awkward when we started looking through the prints (pre-digital age) as there weren't a lot of great ones. In the end we had a couple in frames.

 

When you see a good shot it seems so "obvious", if that makes sense, but timing, framing and so much else that goes into taking a good picture is not obvious or easy.

There is some great drone footage knocking about, people do seem to pay scant regard to the rules and regs though, wonder how long it'll be before they start being enforced or tightened up.

 

When one causes a major incident..

Ermm, I don't want to sound critical, it depends on how you can use editing tools. Straighiten the horizon and go for more mid tone contrast.

 

A lot of hosts will provide auto fixes.

That seems a tad over sharpened Gazza, could be my screen though.

Was only sharpened using the "landscape" preset (or whatever it's called) in lightroom, so it shouldn't be. That said, I've had something in my eye half this afternoon that's causing focus issues, so I'm not really best places to judge!

not sure i am happy with the edit,perhaps its a question of taste there seems more life in the original, but what do i know with my old 10meg panasonic ;)

 

I was thinking more along these lines

Hmm just shows what a few tweaks can do, but as i said it is a matter of taste for me your version is a tad to ominous.
