Hi! I am a passionate Lenspirationer and photography enthusiast from Pennsylvania. I am shooting with a Nikon D5200, and two lenses: an 18-55 mm and a 55-200.
This looks like a great assignment!
I am planning to be going on a road trip out west this month a few days before this assignment ends, so maybe I will be able take some photos of wheat fields as we travel through Kansas or Nebraska.
I buy a lot of gear on ebay, and I am guessing I could get a Nikon 24-70mm 2.8 (used) for around $600-$700 using my “Best Offer” or else bidding in an auction.
It just takes a little research and negotiating.
@kina I would be interested to know what percentage KEH gives you just in case I would want to sell some of my equipment to them.
Okay, I feel like people photography is not necessarily my thing, but I finally found a little time with my younger siblings and shot a few photos.
There isn’t much variety, but it was all I had time for.
I loved the idea of having those Math U See blocks in the background 😉 ! (Secret advertising going on there.)
I sell on Ebay, and that works fairly well. (except the 9% of item value that Ebay takes out. 🙂 )
But that is just something that you have take into consideration anywhere you sell.
I seem to get the best price for my items when selling through Ebay though.
You could also see what Adorama or B&H photo would give you. It would be far easier if you…[Read more]
…and also why you have both the 50mm 1.8 and 1.4, and if you’ll probably end up getting rid of one of them?
I’m not decided on that yet, but I really am liking f/1.4…
I think I will get rid of the f/1.8 since I like the 50mm 1.4 lens better for video.
I’d be curious to know how often you find yourself switching lenses
Yeah, that is the…[Read more]
Well there is nothing quite like Lightroom for sorting and editing…. but I’ve heard that On1 is a pretty good equivalent.
Check out this forum topic about On1. (Lightroom Alternative going for a sweet deal…)
But… I don’t have experience with this program, so take what I say with a grain of salt.
If you are looking for something that is the e…[Read more]
Hey guys, I have been buying and selling camera gear over Ebay for the past month and have come across some great prime lenses.
The reason that I like Prime lenses is basically because you can get really wide apertures with them, and they can tend to be slightly more sharp.
Anyhow, I am wondering if anyone on here has experience shooting with…[Read more]
The last two.
Here are some others. So hard to choose…!
Well, for this assignment all I had to to do was open the backdoor! (Quite easy, which means that I had a lot more options to chose from.) 🙂
I went around with my 70-300 lens for awhile to separate the subject from the background. Then I took my 50mm and put some extension tubes on it to get some super close-ups.
Then I found some unique flies…[Read more]
But, I need some help to brain storm some different ideas – what is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word ‘ornate’? 🙂
I asked a few other people that question too! haha 🙂
I’m interested also!
I’ll probably try for it. 🙂
Any other ideas?
Has anyone else tried focus stacking in Photoshop?
A good question to ask your friend would be: For what purpose is she going to use the photos that she takes of her artwork?
In other words, is this for a big printing, for digital viewing only, or is it for personal record only,etc..
That would help answer a lot of the other questions that I have as far as DSLR vs. Point&Shoot…[Read more]
Sure, I think I watched this video right after I visited the link you gave me to Photography Life, so I forgot that the link was different. 🙂
I tried to do a focus merge using Photoshop’s “Auto-Blend Layers” feature, and that worked fairly well, but it still was far from perfect.
Did you try the steps outlined in this article? https://photographylife.com/how-to-focus-stack-images
Yes, but at the end of the video, as he said, there is some manual refining that he does. And that is…[Read more]
Hi Lenspirationers, my question today is about how to do focus stacking in Photoshop using 20 or so images.
I’ll attach the one that I’m working on now. The problem that I have is that I’m not sure how to refine the selection manually, and so the photo is pretty imperfect. I am really new to focus stacking, so I would appreciate any advice!
I’m not sure what the Manfrotto compact action tripod that you mentioned before is like, but I do know that a Manfrotto tripod is most likely going to be a better option than some other cheaper brand.
If I were you, and had your same tripod budget, I would probably buy the best used-condition tripod that was in my budget.
So I would check out the…[Read more]
