Anyway, getting sharp pictures has what got to do with what attire to wear during wedding shoot?
I also don't understand it became a topic for digression. Better dressed = more sharp pictures? The point that dressing better help in getting more respect had been made already right?
Got a qn, when i used my speedlite 420ex and set Manual mode, shutter to 1/60 and aperture to f8, then half press the shutter, my 350D exposure meter will be at the lowest end... meaning the camera is trying to tell me the pic will be underexposed. But when i took the shot, it turned out quite well.Originally Posted by ricohflex
Any idea why....
The meter in the camera doesn't apply when you're shooting with an external flash.
So des na.... kum xiaOriginally Posted by n0d3
Newbie qn: Typically in wedding banquets, you use bounce card or diffuser? when to use what...
Personally I use a diffuser (lightsphere) when using a 580EX, but when using the metz 60ct4, I have to use a bouncecard. Best case scenario is when you get to bounce off white ceilings.
at the least, the lens must be of the right type. sigma lens are often soft, nikon lens are in general sharp. not sure about canon.Originally Posted by lwywjm
You camera meter tells you that the exposure for ambient according to your 1/60s, f8 is underexpose, but you are using your 420ex as main light, so if you 420ex function correctly and with in the range, the photo should be correctly exposed.Originally Posted by yehosaphat
I used to use a Soften and recently switched to a Lightsphere. Franky I can't tell the difference between both of them.Originally Posted by yehosaphat
This is often a brand biased statement. I am a Nikon user myself, and I can say that not all nikkors are sharp and there are sigmas that are sharp. Never use brand names as a judgement to portray sharpness.Originally Posted by oceanxp
On the metering part, say for portriats-type shots, do u guys usually use spot meter + zoom and exposure lock on face, then recompose? or just leave it on evaluative + shoot and pray? ^_^~
Lightsphere bigger n more suiOriginally Posted by n0d3
i just upgraded from a piece of white PVC to light sphere...
got slight difference lar.
Cosmetically, LS is nicer.
If you can't tell the different from the pictures when using Lightsphere, money wasted oreadi.
and for shooting portraits, anything can lar, P mode A mode or M mode also can, spot, matrix or centre weighted all are fine, see which one work better for you.
If some one tell you must use prime lens wide open, only using M mode, spot metering, also have to shoot RAW, but the portraits not pleasing to the viewer, what's the point? all this are methods, what people want is the end result. if this method won't help you get the end result you want, try others...
I not pro enough to differentiate mah. The Lightsphere helps when I switch from landscape to portrait mode because unlike the Soften I get the same coverage.Originally Posted by hptay
