Light Reading

WHY USE AN ACCESSORY exposure meter Accuracy and simplicity. The hemispheric white incident dome measures light falling on your subject, not reflected from it the way your camera does. Hold the meter up to your subject with the dome facing the camera position, and you get essentially a gray-card reading without a gray card.You need not be near your subject, just in the same light. Incident meters are a must in studios to measure and control strobes. But many pro sports shooters rely on them,...

Sky Gazing

THE PROBLEM with many a sunset picture is that people get so caught up in the color that they forget to make it a good picture. Think foreground elements For sunsets over water, these can be rocks Jetties, piers, boats, tidal pools or even just an upsplash of a wave. Over land, look for rock formations, clumps of vegetation, small structures. Take the sunset from a porch, or with a clothesline in silhouette. Most important, look for an arrangement that produces leading lines or triangles....

Qadding Up The Bytes

I recently bought a 4GB CompactFlash card for my Nikon D70, and the control panel tells me that I have 1.1K exposures. What's up Bill Greene A The camera estimates how many exposures you can make on the card, according to the jile size you've set up for your pictures. The 1.1K is shorthand for 1,100 frames your card will record more or less when you switch between RAW and JPEG, and so on. I've received conflicting advice on whether I can use my Nikon SB-25 Speedlight on my Nikon D80,1...

Closersubjects

PORTRAITS ALMOST always benefit from an out-of-focus background. To limit depth of field, do as many of these as possible Use as large a sensor or film format as you have digital compacts are out. Use a lens with a long focal length, and set a large aperture (small f-number). Remember that the closer you are to your subject, and the farther your subject is from the background, the shallower the depth of field will be. Finally, focus on the eye if the eye is unsharp, the whole face will appear...

For the dated look of a Kodak Instamatic circa 1963, you could use an Instamatic camera if you can find a fresh cartridge of 126 film. Or you could start with a digital image and add softness, blur, vignetting, chromatic aberration, and lens flare in software if you have the right image-editing program, as well as skill and patience.

Sharper Images

TO GET DEPTH t f field (DOF) covering close objects as well as a far background, focus to the hyperfocal distance. Start by focusing manually about a third of the way into the space you want in focus. Stop the lens down with DOF preview, and view through the finder or (better) by live view. Slowly focus the lens closer until the foreground comesjust into focus.Need more depth Go to a bigger f-number, and try again.

Winning Races

ACTION-FREEZING fast shutter speeds are deadly for bike racing, or any race when you're not at the finish line. Horizontal panning blur, described above, is the classic technique so much so that it can be overused (okay, cliched). To mix things up, try a diagonal pan of a cyclist diving into a turn POSITION YOURSELF ON THE INSIDE OF THE TURN TO GET THE RIDER'S FACE. START AT ABOUT 1 125 SEC AND GO DOWN FROM THERE FOR MORE BLUR. On a hilly course, capture a rider grimacing while approaching the...

The Fisheye Factor

Our star ratings for fisheye lenses do not reflect optica quality. These lenses are designed to show severe aberrations notably barrel distortion and their huge angular coverage guarantees light falioff. Moreover, the curvature in the images they produce makes SQF measurements on our optical bench impossible. These lenses are therefore rated solely on quality of construction, usability, and fun factor. 1,270, street, with built-in hood, case and removable tripod collar About halt the weight of...
