    On that note:

    Shot with a high powered air rifle, then shot again with a shakey hand and iPhone.

    the 2nd shot is a good illustration of why you need flash.

    blue, nice framing on the last shot, but i think you should have stopped down a bit more to get both eyes in focus.

    Here. I'm just not sure where "here" is.

    30mm f6.3 1/125 iso400


    235mm f9 1/1250 iso400


    400mm f9 1/1250 iso400
    This model plane was exceedingly difficult to capture. A combination of being too close, and using too much lens. This is probably the best shot I got of the plane.

    why such the fast shutter speed? couldnt you have just dropped the iso? i really like the hot air balloon pictures, the plane would have been nicer if there was some motion to the propeller.

    I had been shooting since 6am, and up since 5. These were shot around 7:30 and I never changed my iso. I usually forget to check my setting before I shoot, unless I can't get a good exposure.

    Those are some cool pictures Pat. What kind of flash do you use?

    I took this one yesterday. I liked the contrast between the life of the flower and the dead look of the ground.

    1/10s (hand held), F/5.3, ISO400, 40mm

    Yes, that is the moon in the frame. I composed the shot with the moon in the frame, it wasn't by accident.

    all film shots. i've noticed that i generally compose shots in an odd sort of way, but i kind of like it like that. i didn't intentionally compose the action shot though, i was just happy that it came out as i was shooting with a manual focus camera. i need to start utilizing the darkroom on campus and taking more photos.

    developing and printing my own photos is why i like film photography so much more than digital. i just seem to get way more satisfaction working in the darkroom trying to get a shot just perfect than i do sitting in front of a computer screen. maybe it's because it involves more guesswork (for me at least) and i accidentally get some pretty cool results from time to time.

    the only difference between PS and the darkroom is that PS has a 'undo state' option.

    If you're careful about power consumption, most flashes can cycle very quickly.

    Even my cheap-o Sunpak (which has horrible recycle times after full discharge) will shoot multiple FPS at lower power.
