  • June 2012 Photography **56K Warning**

    To encourage forum users to converse and share ideas and generally inject some community spirit we are holding a monthly photography theme to help get all you nice people use the creative side of your brain. Themes and advice can be discussed and shared here too. There will be no 'best photo' polls nor winners, its just all good fun for anyone who would like to get involved.


    Rules

    -Any camera will do!
    -Photos must be your own
    -Post only your best shots so choose carefully!
    -Post processing to enhance your images is fine but keep it tasteful...


    This months theme is:

    Action Shots!!

    Tips:

    • High shutter speeds and shooting wide open (low F/stop 1.8-4.5) will help here.
    • A decent zoom may help bring you closer to the action.
    • Try panning for dramatic effect.
    • Don't be scared to get out to a local park/ skate park, there are always likely people happy to show off.
    • Have fun!!

                      Well, it's action! (And my all-time favourite aircraft, and the last time I'll ever see one!)



                      I'll try and get some more of something less aviation related (I've got loads) over the next few weeks.

                        I could have spend more time post processing.. hard light and poor focus gave way to some abberations which I could have sorted out in camera raw if i was more patient. However the last shot I uploaded im pretty happy to say it was my best shot of the day. I only spent about 10 mins taking some photos and I finally managed to get the focus right, iirc shutter speed was between 1/350-1000 so there was pretty good lighting and regardless of skill or talent of the skater imo I believe I captured the essence of skateboarding in that last shot

                        @ WYX, were you in a car when you took the first one you uploaded?

                        Issat an F-4 Phantom II ?? being decommissioned iirc?

                          It is indeed! I won't say what the CFG on the tail means, I don't want to be banned

                              the last shot is great.

                              for my car shot, i was on the side walk, just a random panning shot.

                              that F4 is great, how did you get all of the subject (the plane) so sharp?
