Mastering the Light.

•September 12, 2008 • 2 Comments

When it comes to taking photos of cityscape, obstacles such as trees, street lights walking pedestrians halt my progress, well, that applies to me but I don’t know if it affects others. So far, the biggest problem that destroys my pictures are the lamp posts, when using long shutter mode, lampposts seem to be over exposed, causing a part of the picture to be too bright, reducing the details of whatever is near that source of light and hence, creating a destroyed picture.

Some suggestions I had found on the internet are stuff like using a lens hood and using filters, I had tried lens hoods but they didn’t work for me. However, I don’t see how using filters can solve the problem, if less light enters the lens, what you want focused, such as the building lights, still require more amount of time for the details to be captured, and if the street lights are still there, won’t the amount of light entering the lens be the same as not using a filter?

Here are some examples of over-exposed images..

A better photo but the lights at the bottom are somewhat overexposed too. The Ascott sign cannot be seen anymore due to the over-exposed streetlights.

This is also one of the better shots, with the stripes being clear and sharp.

Here’s one where the lighting poses no problem at all, a perfect shot in my eyes! The manual settings worked for this case because there isn’t any direct source of light.

Now can any experts or more experienced photographers give some comments or suggestions?Thanks!

Purpose

•September 9, 2008 • 3 Comments

Personally, I am not very new nor very experienced at photography. I just wanted to create another blog to share my photos but at the same time, I am not willing to turn my own personal blog into a photoblog, so yeah, thought up of this blog.

Another purpose of creating this blog can be said to well, recieve opinions about my photos so that I can learn more, be it good or bad comments, please leave a comment! If you have a blog that you want me to link, I’ll gladly do so!

I have a Flickr gallery too, so you might want to give it a visit. Most likely I will post my pictures there before posting it here 🙂

So here’s the first photo I’ll ever post!
