[release]Talk about stuff that isn't stuff you'd talk about elsewhere, etc etc Previous Threadlock due to Garry[/release] I've gotten back into digital painting as a side hobby and I'm doing lots of thinking about how to apply methods and techniques to my photography without things being blatantly noticeable alternatively, photography applied to painting for a surreal effect hmmm
Been photographing with my kit18-55 for quite awhile, next stop is a 50mm 1.4 right? right?
Could anyone tell me if theres a way that costs little or no money to attach a 62mm lens hood to a 49mm filter thread?
Anyone heard good things about opteka? Looking to buy a cheap fisheye lens. [url=http://www.amazon.co.uk/Opteka-Panoramic-Fisheye-Digital-Cameras/dp/B00281IQRI/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1325540380&sr=1-2][img]http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41AOjg3ggYL._SL500_AA300_.jpg[/img][/url]

[QUOTE=latirCole;34019650]Ahh cheers, do you know if that's the 0.2mm fisheye or the .35mm fisheye?[/QUOTE] All I know is its the kit lens. Probably the cheapest one.

What a great way to start off the new year. Actually a can of whip cream exploded in my car while driving, not fun. It's actually pretty funny. [img]http://a4.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/375540_2726401332956_1644863841_2538826_794551585_n.jpg[/img]
Currently trying to take a decent startrail photo.. harder than I thought. D:

I had a [url=http://www.photozone.de/canon-eos/526-samyang8f35eos]Samyang 8mm[/url] a few years ago. I got mine for around $300. There's one that's practically the same from [url=http://www.adorama.com/LNB835NK.html?utm_term=Other&utm_medium=Shopping%20Site&utm_campaign=Other&utm_source=gbase]Bower[/url], too.
quick question guys: what is the technique behind star trails? I'm eager to create some

[QUOTE=The Salmon;34029790]Multiple long exposures (15-30 seconds) layered on top of each other in your photo manipulation program of choice.[/QUOTE] I figured it was a long those lines but wasnt 100% sure, thankyou!
In case you guys haven't heard, there's going to be a meteor shower tonight! (Viewable in at least Michigan for all I know) What settings would you guys recommend for a night time meteor shoot like this? I've never tried shooting stars (or moving meteors before). I was thinking something like high f-stop (around f11 or f22ish), low iso (around 100), low shutterspeed (around 10, 15, 30 etc), and auto wb off. Would a 18-55 lens be good? Or should I use a zoom lens and focus on one part of the sky?
There are so many things I want to buy. I don't know whether to get a 50mm 1.4 or a xbox. And to go along with that, I need a new bag, a new tripod head, I would like a microphone and I need to sell all the old lens I have that don't fit my camera. (Including that P/KA adapter mount I got for free. Maybe sells for upwards of $100?!
