Hello all. It's been over 25 years since back in Russia i had a Leica knockoff rangefinder camera Zorki 4 with Zeiss knock off lens, both 1960s vintage models. I also had my own dark room setup in the bathroom...That was last time I had any exposure to a photograpy technics that required some finesse Anyway, after 25 years of point and shot soapboxes both film and digital, I ended up with Canon EOS xSi 2 weeks ago and the spark came back. i am reading up, taking countless pictures and starting to remember the composition and exposure basics learned back in Russia in school photolab. I've been reading the forum and finally I think I came up with a picture worth of posting here. all shot at Focal Length: 50 mm F-Number: F/4.5 Exposure Time: 0.2 sec. 1/5 Metering Mode: Spot Exposure Program: Manual ISO Speed: 400 The idea behind the picture was to reflect a trigger action - something that once done - can not be undone and starts a process - just like shooting a gun. so, what do you think? Which one is better? - color or BW? falling dominoes or standing ones? technical aspect - I used a borrowed Canon 50mm/f1.8 Mk I lens that turned out to be broken - the focus ring was broken, and I could not focus on anything closer than 1 meter, even though the distance scale on a lens started at 0.8, even using manual focus initial idea was to have a wide open shot and freeze falling dominoes but because I could not focus close enough, it did not produce the expected "fuzzy background" effect so had to change the focus point to dominoes and have longer shutter speed to have more "motion" Also I did not have any lights control except blinds in the window and black sweatshirts and black sofa for the background.
