Slightly off topic but how do you guys calibrate your monitors and balance your images you see on screen with your print ouput?
took this with just a point and shoot I had at the weekend but it was my first attempt of trying to actually take a photo of something 'arty'
@RabbieBurns - it's fairly interesting subject matter, I like the padlocks. But... the horizon is pissed and so it makes you feel a bit off-kilter!
hmm yeah I guess I should have rotated it a bit :)
POTN (photography on the net) forum for canon users covers everything you will ever need to know and they are very helpful.
just saw this recent SMH article Skill up: a beginner's guide to DSLR photography
Right after continuing to take blurry photos Im convinced there is something wrong with the camera and have booked it in for a service. I have given it to others to try and they all take blurry photos so Im sure its not just me.
Thanks to all of you whom have suggested books (I bought the Collins Complete Coure textbook) and thanks also to you who sent me on the path to tutorial by DVD.
I got through chapter 1 of the book and havent managed any of the video tutorials.
I have since bought a GoPRo to capture my snowboarding and scuba diving adventures; (see seperate thread) but I still want to learn the basics of the DSLR, so this thread begins a revival.
havent used this camera since last year but took it into the city tonight to take some photos at the 'Vivid' festival.
Shot in Manual, some of them turned out not bad
I got the camera out the other day - this chap was waiting for me on my bin near the front door. Made me jump it did....Attachment 24745
Nice. Is the blur a post production or the aperture setting?
Also, what is the scale of that, is it just a nice zoom shot of a wee uk house spider, or is it like one of the ones we get to play with here http://images.canberratimes.com.au/2...35-620x349.jpg
Here are some of my other photos from the Sydney vivid festival:
