Thread: botanic garden

    Default Re: botanic garden

    Hmmm, nothing wrong in putting the shot in the centre of the frame if it's done to good effect, but i suppose when you show more than one picture as in a gallery type format, it can get a little boring. Nevertheless, the shots are sharp and well exposed with gd dof, so the basics are covered. Makes me want to go shooting at botanic gardens too! I think i will next week after i get back from my holidays! We have the same camera, it'd be cool to compare photos eh?

    1) messy background or not "blur" enough
    2) Rule of Third
    3) Up the contrast.
    4) Did you take around noon time? Try to take early in the morning. They look much better IMHO.
    1)will it help the dof if i change the to spot focusing? i have to take note of my composition in terms of the background and the aperture as large as possible...
    2)i get what you mean rule of third when i see explorerz's take of photo.
    3,4)i thought going in the afternoon will give me a higher contrast, am i right or wrong? i will time on my ps.

    some of the better one i got from my trip on sunday link

    best time to shoot will be in the morning/evening. but afternoon is fine as well, mine was shot somewhere in the afternoon around 12pm.
    as for DOF, changing the way of focusing doesn't help. to get shallow DOF, you can try shooting at f2.8(or widest aperture), try to frame very tightly(your camera will be nearer to the subject thus giving you lesser DOF), look for a subject that are more isolated(probably not messy), use as much zoom as you can.

    if we are to use as much zoom as possible at widest available aperture then we need not be so near the object anymore right?

    if the sun is too bright, the photos' color might also turn out washed out?

    with zoom, you will have to be further away than without zoom, what i mean is to stay as close as to the subject even with the zoom, this will help you to get a more shallow dof.

    if the sun is too bright, the photos' color might also turn out washed out?
    not really if you controlled the exposure well enough.
