photoblog image Code  Blue

Code Blue

I'm still working on the focus, I took most of these pictures last week while I was still testing out the camera. Skee this is before the ISO advice.

Okay so I decided to combine my two blogs (Photo and writing) here so I'll be writing little updates about what I'm up to here. Just to warn you :). Abby has left me booohooooo. She's still the only one I have shots of so let me know when you start getting bored. We had a great time out in Stockholm. I didn't realise I liked house music. I usually group all that kind of headbanging music into one huge black box including Techno and Trance (weird), but I was wrong because its excellent. I'm a convert! Also, intoxicated Swedes are really extra cool. I didn't take my heavy camera out with me though.

The only cosolation I have from the fact that Abby has left is that I have three weeks of visiting friends lined up..So great :)

the angle of this shot does it for me.
E Etomi: Thanks Dotun
With a f/2,8 and so much light you can easily use ISO 100 and a faster shutterspeed (1/300 sec). Try to experiment with your camera's metering system. Focal lenght 100 mm for modelling shots ( in your case 70 mm) is what I read about in books.

If I'm wrong I hope someone corrects me.

Like the pose and the colors. Great!
E Etomi: Thanks Fausto, I will be trying out the settings with my next shoot.

I'll be learning all this stuff with my new Canon Digital Rebel xti (400D) when I get it next week, Etomi. So needless to say, I'm paying attention to what you're doing and the comments that follow (like from Fausto).

I like this angle as well.
E Etomi: Thanks Ginnie. I'm sure you will be a natural with the 400d. Let the countdown begin.
