Gamblin on my mind... by TRiGGER80 Gamblin on my mind... by TRiGGER80
Lol, this one i took while i was just playing around with the camera, no planning, nothing, haha...

I was very surprised, that you could get such a nice DoF from a PowerShot A590 IS !

Sure, not SLR Level, but i was still pretty amazed by the DoF, as i didnt expect it that nicely, especially not sicne these dices are really rather small!

I was trying to sort of "recreate" this scene, to take "proper" shots of the dices, using a TriPod and better lighting and i discovered, that it can get even nicer with this cam ^_^

More smooth and "fluid" the firther you get away from the cam, more "gradually" and not as abrupt as here.

But somehow, the "newer" Pics that i just took a few minutes ago just dont do it for me...

Sure, the lighting is nicer and the DoF shows off much better, but somehow, i dont like em /nearly/ as much as this one. I guess, its a "spur of the moment" thing. I prefer this one over the "proper" ones anytime, it seems much more "alive", and so i decided to use this one =)

edited it in Photoshop a lil, though, just some colortweaking and smoothing out some of the noise.

Camera: Canom PowerShot A590 IS, all manual settings.
(and i didnt use the CHDK FirmWare Hack this time)

Hope ya all like it, i think, its nice ^_^

(and for those that read my 8 random Facts-Tag: YES, this IS the table i set on fire as a kiddo XD )

Heh, i dont know too much about cams myself =)

That entire "deoth of field" thing just means, that objects that are close to the cam are "in focus" (=> sharp) while the ines farther away are "out of focus" (=> unsharp, lil blurry) =)

Thanks for the fav and glad you like it, Gen´ster =)

TRiGGER80 Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, i love em, too!

But heh, its the same effect: Depth Of Field =)

I also saw shots, where the midground object was in focus, and the one close as wel as the one far where out of focus =)

Neat effect, too!

Oh, I thought you said Death. XD;;;

That's cool. Once my mom sister took a really cool shot of my friend her cell phone, and everything was blurred as if she was in motion, EXCEPT my friend was in perfect focus.

I sincerely hope the title of this doesn't correspond to what's ACTUALLY on your mind... :D Anyhow, I love this photo, really, it kind of reminds me of playing dominoes (not gambling) for some really strange reason... But still, I favs! :D

AWH! Thank you very much!

Actually, this was a quick snapshot i took while playing with the cam, watching TV XD

And believe it or not:

It reminds me of Dominoes, too!
Actually, i was considering to do a similar pic with Dominoes at first XD

(and the title is a wordplay... Blues Legend Eric Johnson has a Song called "Ramblin´ on my mind", which later on ahs been covered by Eric Clapton =) )

Ahh, NOW I get the title (sorry, am a little slow, especially after exams, you know that feeling when you just sort of crash from far too much last minute revision?? I feel like that now... Yeah, you know you've been revising too much when your dreams start reading your biology notes and start shouting "Lymphocyte!" at you...)

Oh, and it's no problem. I send hugs too! :hug: :hug: I've heard you've uploaded other photos, so I shall have to have a look at them when I get a spare moment.

Well, apart from my dance practical I had to do today (they always scare me senseless...)

Hallo!

Hier gefällt mir ganz besonders der Bildaufbau: Vorn die exakte Schräge und hinten die Senkrechte. Es wirkt, als wäre die Drittelregel exakt, aber durch die Wahl des Motivs und die intensive Perspektive dennoch nicht sklavisch umgesetzt worden.
Der vorderste Würfel wirkt wie einem 3D-Package entsprungen. Vielleicht trägt dazu auch der scharf geschnittene Schatten bei. Den Effekt finde ich cool und passend.

Jedoch lassen wie schon erwähnt der Unter- und Hintergrund des Bildes keine "Spiel"-Atmosphäre aufkommen - zu einheitlich kühl und distanziert wirken die Farben - und Vorder- und Hintergrund des Bildes stehen in keinem symbolischen oder eindrücklichen Zusammenhang.
Deswegen ist es leider kein Fav.

Für ein mal eben geschossenes Bild ist es aber dennoch eine Perle. Es freut mich sehr zu hören, daß du so experimentier- und fotografierwütig bist. Nur weiter so, bin mal gespannt, was da noch so alles auf deine DA-Seite hü;pft.

Bis dann,
Der Achtbeiner

"kinda leaves its marks"???? Lucy, the table was WICKER. AND it turned into a pile of ash (or near enough). Leaves its marks! Chuh! Honestly, next time, be sensible and set fire to something slightly less flammable...

P.S. Off to do revision, urgh...... I hope you're revising biology like a good little girl... :D

Eigentlich n echt gutes motiv und der schärfeverlauf is dir auch total gut gelungen. Aber mich persönlich stört der hintergrund und der untergrund. iwie is der untergrund den würfeln zu ähnlich.
als tipp :
versuch doch mal n weißes tuch oder n blatt papier unter zu legen :)

Ja, stimmt schon.

wie gesagt, ich hatte gestern halt nochmal versucht das ganze nachzubauen, mit vernünftigem Untergrund und ausleuchtung, stativ etc...

Aber irgendwie hat den "vernünftigen" photos einfach was gefehlt.. .die wirkten total tot...
Und da hab ich mich dann docheher dafür entschieden, das "spontane" zu verwenden =)

Allem in allem, bin ich aber doch sehr glücklich damit.
Klar, der Untergrund ist farblich SEHR ähnlich, das stimmt, ich denk mal das kommt vom Licht.
ich persönlich finde, dass die struktur von den Kacheln gegen die glatten Würfel da schon reicht, aber ichs eh was Du meinst... Farblich anders wäre besser, klar. dann aber auch kein Weisses Tuch, sondern irgendwas farbliches, schliesslich sind die Würfel ja schon weiss ;-) Übrigens sind die normal SCHNEE-weiss XD Ich wollte z.B. Immer mal welche von diesen typischen "Las Vegas Casino-würfeln" haben, so in rot mit weissen Dots, hab die aber hier noch nie gesehen, haha!

Naja, wie gesagt dieses Photo ist abends beim Fernsehen entstanden, von daher hatte ich auch nicht so die Mega-Intentionen dabei =)

Ist so ne MomentSache, glaub ich... Atmosphäre halt =)

Na, ich werd mal schauen dass ich die Würfel krieg =)

Awe, thank you so much for such a nice comments =D

And lol, see, for me, the cam is new...
Its a completely new field to explore!
Thereby, i take a BUNCH of pics, even just during watching TV, like on this one, haha.
But meh, most of em get deleted right away, because i was just playing around with parameters, zoom,etc, but nothing useful came out XD

But yeah, i like this one a lot.
The other ones i took a few mins ago, with proper lighting and setup might show off the cam´s DoF better, but otherwise they were... dunno... Dead, somehow.

Yep, definitely!

Just for the fun of it!
Thats the beauty about digital Cameras...
Do that with FILM!

And, lol, thats why i got a 4 GB SDHC memory card for my cam (as well as rechargeables, a charger and a bag).
Enough storage for +1.000 Photos. And even if that was not enough, i could still use the one from my MP3 XD XD XD

But i highly DOUBT, that this would be necessary soon, haha.
