Yes I know HDR is terribly over done at this point and this is a only quick shot I took while we were out for a walk. But it’s still pretty neat…. Define HDR Efex Pro…
So close to summer you can almost taste it…..
Apparently this guy is having a bad day….or maybe it’s just spring that’s got him all riled up?
Now this guy had the right idea….every time the angry dude came his way he moved to another location…
Made by Agilux in England starting in 1949, the Agifold II was a 6×6 format folding camera. This camera has a 90mm lens, a leaf shutter and shutter speeds ranging from B to 1/300.
For metering it had an extinction meter which uses a sequence of known fractions to determine proper exposure.
Here’s how it works….see the little slot at the top of the camera above the word agifold? When you look through it you see a strip with numbered boxes, 1,2,3…. pick the highest number that you can make out and match it up to the scale on the top of the camera….
So for instance, if I see a two on a sunny day like today, the fastest shutter speed I will get is 100 at f4.5, the slowest would be half a second at f22. Then you transfer your settings to the lens.
By the way the dial you see in the background is for determining focus. Line up the double image in the viewfinder, check the scale and then transfer that setting to the lens as well.
So much for fast shots.
Happy Friday/Easter everyone!
I think I just got mooned by a bird but I’ll let you decide…
Spring has most definitely sprung in these here parts….
And the birds are back in town….
Also…..Oscar still likes high places…..he climbs up there like a pro….
First let me be clear, by documentation I mean literally that, not documentary style photography. Photography for documentation purposes can be something as simple as documenting personal belongings for your insurance company…..and then storing the photos off site.
For my own purposes I have always made it a habit to take photos whenever we do renovations on our house. For the photos to be really useful you need before, during and after shots. Take for example the kitchen in our old house:
Not the most beautiful or creative shots I’ve ever taken but I put all the pictures from all the reno’s we did at this house into an album and left it with our real estate agent on the day of our open house……a few hours later we were sitting down to sign papers…..
Aside from the fact that our agent is awesome, the photos helped sell the house. Our buyers got to see something that most do not and that gave them the little bit of security they needed to make a quick decision.
How many times have you gone house hunting and wondered what was behind the walls of the house that you were considering?
