    Hey guys. Was out with the D90 in DC today with a friend who just got a 50d. I was walking the tidal basin taking pics and I saw this guy, quickly threw up the camera and took the pic. 50m/1.8D This was at about 2.8 I think.

    I like how it came out. Slight PP to make some nicer green in LR2.

    What do you guys think?

    Spend more time taking pictures and less time looking for Lightroom presets.

    just keep taking pictures.

    thats about the only relevant advice possible at this point.

    Try varying angles and heights. Don't shoot every pictures standing straight and tall. Get down or get up!

    agreed and thank you for that suggestion. i actually thought that yesterday. i'm like hmmm.... taking a pic from eye level at 6'4 isn't the best. i tried a few kneel shots, but they didn't come out well

    will try this more. it adds a :eek3: perspective for sure

    Yeah I find myself doing weird stuff. Leaning over rails, going up stairs, standing on ladders....

    Anything to give it a unique perspective. :hs: Everyone sees it from "eye level."

    Probably one of the most powerful things I've heard about taking pictures yet.

    So true. I need to remember this.

    I really like your Jefferson shot with the helo, but I would have dragged the shutter a bit to get more motion on the rotor.

    i said the EXACT same thing 10mins ago to my friend here. would have loved to freeze the helicopter with no blur but show the blade in full rotation

    but i was in aperture mode and it happened so fast, i still am not quick enough on the camera :wtc:

    thank you though :wavey:

    looking good so far l33t. but like eveyrone said more pics less lightroom :)

    its not a bad thing, just when you start taking more and more pics you figure out the settings that work etc. i like them all so far but then again im new to this also so everything pretty much looks good :o

    Thanks nader! There isn't enough time in the day. I want to shoot like 8hrs/day in sunlight then sit down after dinner and just pound away at light room trying to learn it.

    I haven't had this much passion about something since about 2001ish when I was learning to fly a plane.

    It's such a great feeling to have again. :bigthumb:
