I have a bear help me.
:3 I love Titus.
Hha! A LOT of that gear looks familiar!!!
I dump the stuff on a table at home and use my Nikon D700 with a Nikkor 35mm f/1.4 . I usually am too lazy to get my SB-900 flash when shooting, i just crank iso to 4000 and shoot. Some photos i actually have used it though...
Then i upload to computer and process the photo in Nikon Capture NX2, takes about 2 min., then i upload to mypicturetown.
Niiice. What are you using for overhead lighting?
cheap...I break a lot of cameras... Right know a fugifilm XP 150
I recently decided to start taking better pictures. I used my crappy Evo camera but I will be looking for something at least a little better.
It's a stray cat that used to hang out by my house. I don't want to empty the old pockets just for a quick picture
Outdoors, natural light whenever possible. If forced to do indoors, use these: 3 x inexpensive clamp lights (Home Depot <$10 each) paired with 27W 5500K daylight CFLs (also Home Depot, don't recall cost). I never use camera flash. Processing ... cropping mostly, then resize down to 500 (or less) x whatever.
I tend to try and take my pics outside for light too.
My process for photographing my EDC is usually:
Set up EDC on chosen background
Pack EDC away
Remember I forgot to include my watch
Go back outside and repeat process...
If you're already doing that at your age, by the time you hit my age, you'll be forgetting to take yourself back indoors.
My cameras are a Canon DSLR EOS 550 D with either a 28-135 IS Ultrasonic or a 17-40 L USM for higher quality pics. Also a set of extension tubes for ultra close up pics,,,,,,,,,and a Lumix TZ10 compact. Sometimes I use the camera on my Ipad for quick pics. I edit with Photoshop Elements 6
How I set up pics depends on what I want to achieve,,,,, a tripod sometimes or hand-held with/without flash. Sometimes I set up a piece of sugar paper to eliminate the background but retain the shadows which bring life to a pic,,,,
I have a wireless shutter release and have borrowed a motion sensor to catch thieves ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
I'm constantly improvising at the moment. I hate these long winter days without natural light & keep having to resort to flashlights & whatnot to make things even remotely visible. Good thing I got so many all of a sudden
Great pics boyo17. Presume you're happy with results from extension tubes (used on the above photos?).
The tubes don't get used very often as I find the 17-40 on a tripod with long exposure, small aperture and a little fiddling on Photoshop do most of what I want,,,,
Do you eat grapes?? wash them,,,,,, 40mm with a half inch tube
this is the Exif for the stone cutter natural light,,

i just grab my g/f's camera and take pictures until she notices and complains im draining the battery's taking stupid pictures. then i wait for her to go away and carry on
It never ceases to amaze me how seriously people take their camera setting up. I don't even own a tripod. And my camera (which I can't currently find) cost like, 100 bucks four years ago. I'm pretty sure you can get a better one than it for about 40 bucks these days.
haha Seriously. I mean, I have a whole DSLR setup with the tripod and the diffuser and all that fun stuff, but my brother usually has possession of it and I'm too dang lazy to use that setup...
