Removed due to lack of understanding of the purpose of the post.

Nice work.

I know this was for the tutorial and not for critique but I just had to say it.

The setting could be a nice shot. Architecture, antique lamp posts, then you have that ugly modern "shoe box" lamp post right behind the first umbrella!

I hate it when you get a great shot and something like this slips by and just totally ruins the shot :)

I will be adding this section to my Exposure tutorial soon. When it's foggy here, you have to work quickly. I didn't have time to go out and hunt some beautiful scene to photograph. I may redo these photos at some point to include a more pleasing scene, but for the purpose of the exercise, these work fine :)

[shakes head in disgust... lol]

I was not finding fault with your tutorial photo, I said it was not a critique. I was merely using it for another example of how you can miss something in your shot that can ruin it.

If I pissed you off I am truly sorry :)

We all know you are better than that :)

Heck I still miss little things like this then drive all the way home and then cuss afterwards.

In my portfolio there are 2 photos titled October Mist. They were both taken in early morning, specifically to capture the fog retained in a low area. Comments are welcomed. As my editing skills are minimal, these are just standard crop and auto fix/sharpen. Tripod used.

I didn't miss anything. The photos are not ruined.

Let me reword this:

I was not finding fault with your tutorial photo.
I said it was not a critique.

I was merely using it for another example of how A Photographer can miss something in their shot that could ruin it.

Man you are to damn defensive dude :)

LOL

Don't worry about it. I will just think twice before posting tutorials here. It's just a pain in the ass when I specifically stated in the original post that the photos weren't for critique. I understand your point, but the point of this thread was a tutorial. If you wanted to discuss something other than the tutorial, maybe a different thread would be in order.

If you are going to be that damn upset over it create a forum heading for tutorial and lock it out and solve the problem!

This is Tips & Tricks and it is open to comment, discussion and etc.

Until then John chill out

Man did you get up on the wrong side of the bed or what?

I'm not upset :)

I'm sorry I missed seeing his tutorial and images.
10/27/2003 07:12:48 AM · #12
I would really like to know what you had to say JM. We dont get much fog here and knowing where to start would be good.
Some people forget to engage their minds b4 their mouths if you know what I mean.
Anyway if you still care to post your thoughts I would be greatful.

That's two threads you've started and then removed the original post, just leaving the replies for us to read, John. Is this some kind of trick?

No no, you don't understand.

We don't criticize Setzler. We are to fawn, kiss ass and generally prostrate ourselves before his greatness.


Oh yeah, almost forgot... :)

Is this really meant to be funny?
10/27/2003 10:42:53 AM · #16
I am also very sorry to have missed John's tutorial. John really does know tricks we ought to learn. And fog is hard to catch on a photo.

On the other side, I'm not sure Calvus's comment was meant to disturb but this is always the problem with writings to the opposite of speechs, we miss the tone to fairly interprete.

Hopefully, we'll be able to read you somewhere John!

To summarise briefly what john said in his original post:

The camera takes a reading from the image infront of it.
If it's foggy the camera will read it is being bright so will compensate by making the image darker.
This will make the image appear not foggy, which isnt good if you want to take a photo of fog.
To successfully take a photo of photo you need to use +2 (give or take depending on the situation) exposure compensation.


Not sure if this is correct but it's what I remember from john's post.

I have included this information to be released in the next update of my Exposure tutorial. I plan to add 'dark' photos to go along with them and I haven't made those yet. If you are interested in the technique, keep your eyes open for the tutorial update here on DPC. I will post to that thread when it has been updated...

BTW- That tutorial is HERE.

It's not a trick. This thread got pulled off topic and the other thread was receiving complaints that the photos were offensive, which I agree with so I pulled the links.

Neat tutorial! Thanks JM.
