Looking excellent Hannes .
Thank you brother! Can't wait til' I can get my hands on some nice aluminum cheets to make my backpiece for the chassis. Greatly inspired by your Stealthlow!
Man, your photography is out of this world. the colors is perfect for the mobo!!! I can't wait for the rest!!
Oh man - oh man - oh man! Not that bad with just a Nikon D40 with an 18-55lens and a black table with a 32" monitor as photobooth/light. You don't need highend stuff to bring some goodies to your worklog. Be creative! ..I'm just saying.
Edit ~ Someone must have voted "terrible". :'-(
I didn't know a D40 could get pictures this nice , got me considering saving up for one knowing this .
I know this are a little big, but wanted to show you a little more details.
Super nice pictures Hannes & yeah a monitor makes for a very nice bit of lighting .
Depth of field blur I don't think I can do that on my current camera, looks nice .
5 star +rep
Thank you bro! If you have an aperture setting then you should probably be able to fool around à bit With focus and DoF.
set to AV priority and turn one of the wheels (dunno if it's like that on a nikon). I love that last pic... fap fap.
is the lens F2.8? that makes a lot of difference. And you probably use a tripod.
What is the Aperture and Shutterspeed and ISO setting here?
oh, any photoshop?
On these particular pictures (From the fourth of january) there's 100% no photoshop. Except for the resizing and a border. But there's been no editing at all. Most of the previous pictures I've edited the whitebalance. but nothing else.
I use the lens you get with the camera. Don't actually know what it is more than an standard nikon 18-55 lens. And of course I use a tripod. The iso setting is 200, can't go any lower with this camera. The shutter speed and aperture.. Hmm, not certain.. I play around quite a bit with them and decides by the pictures if I need to highten or lower the shutterspeed or the Aperture. If I have to guess then it was about 2-4 sec shutterspeed and the aperture could have been anywhere between F9-F36. Higher aperture results in a wider focus area, so I just set them depending on how the picture looks. Don't know how they'll turn out before I've shot the picture.
So.. This is my "setup"
*manual settings (balancing shuttertime and aperture differently depending on what I'm after)
*2sec delayed.. something. From when I push the button til' the shot is taken.
*Daylight or something with a pure white light, like a monitor or TV.
*A black table or a big white paper.
Hope this helps.
Thank you for the advice. will remember it. Some nice pics coming in next update... some time. I bet it is easier with a beautiful thing to photograph.
Sorry for acting like an expert. I'm à novice and having beautiful hardware to shot sure helps
