First shot with the new Pentax *istD & 18-35mm lens. One of about 20 before I got the timing down.
thats wicked photobug...
looks like you got your timing perfect on this mate. It looks like an alien handed reaching for a ball or something
are you digital or regular?
Wow! I wanna try.
Thanks! Film & digital both, but this is the digital slr I just got yesterday. I think I'm going to like it.
I was going to say, it would be worth your time to use a digi for a shot like this! How did you set up the shot by the way - I wanna try this!
Lessee- hand-held, Av mode @ f/5.6, 1/350 sec exposure. I just shot it against the sky using the center autofocus point and evaluative metering.
This is actually a crop, not full frame. I was about about 2 feet away and it was about a foot or so above me. Just stepped out the front door and there is was.
Hardest part was getting the timing just right. I found tripping the shutter just as the drop was its fattest before dropping worked best for me, YMMV.
Adjusted levels in PS & sharpened it up a bit.
Wow great photo!
this was my attempt at a macro of an icile the other day, the icicle doesnt look too bad, but its not a very nice background.
oops, and i forgot to rotate it when i scanned it, but you get the idea
nice work photobug, that is a very cool pic !!
Hey great photo! Much better than mine, which was taken in a sink :roll:
I told ya you'd love the *istd theres only one problem I've had so far. My internal flash isn't firing atthe moment. Let me know if you have any similiar problems. I have an external flash, but I can't use the really cool wireless ability allowing some 2 point lighting if that internal won't flash. I think my problem amy be in the batteries. Anyway to cut it short, let me know if your flash stops working
Absolutely fabulous Jim, how do you do it, a grant shot out of nothing
pucci- thanks. Having a nearly three foot overhang on my roof helps.
AirVenture- absolutely nothing wrong with that shot. I haven't tried any sink shots yet.
Jeff- Luck? [shrug]
I'm glad you guys liked it.
