Ann - Susan



You may remember Susan. Lots of glass and reflective surfaces and I never really managed to get a good shot. Not any more - all with the 50mm lens ISO 1600 F4 1/80 top two WB auto, seems I used a manual WB for the bottom two but the exif data is only saying manual so not sure what I set, possibly fluro.

I must do that exercise of specifically comparing each of the possible inside WB settings. I really like the warmth of Cloudy but I know others may find that overwhelming.

The composition has improved markedly in this new session too, Ann.

Ann said...

Thanks, it should after more than 50 shots. Its a learning curve as well working out composition with a fixed focal length lens. I miss the wide angle more than telephoto.

Julie said...

Showing my ignorance: tell me about wide-angle lenses.

I have a 55-250mm lens plus an 18-55mm lens. Both telephoto, right?

Your new F1.8 is a fixed 50mm lens, right. And your Tamron is 18-250mm, right again?

How can I tell whether a lens is wide-angle or not?

Ann said...

I think it works something like this - 50 mm (approx 38mm on our camera with the conversion factor)is considered normal sight, anything less than that is getting towards wide angle, so the 18mm (28mm equivalent)end of your lens is wide angle. 50mm is approx 80 so not telephoto but getting longer. When you get up around 200, 250 etc thats telephoto. Does that make sense?

Wide angle is exactly that - wide - you get much more in frame.

My fixed 50mm is about 80mm with the conversion so it brings things in a bit closer. Means that I often can't get a full building etc in shot but have to go for a portion of it.

Julie said...

That conversion factor is going from film to digital, right? That throws me a little. Which is the longer and which the shorter? I guess I should google all this ... or read on DPS perhaps.

I am confused about this like I was with aperture and s/s ... but I think I now understand those two.

Ann said...

Yes, or from the small digital SLRs to a full frame SLR. You don't really need to know it unless you upgrade to a full frame camera (or go back to film). I only know it because I converted from film to digital. Just get used to your own lenses. I guess you need to be able to pick up what people are talking about if you are reading books about photography - which sort of camera etc. If you are looking at a photo taken with a film camera and they say it was taken with a 50mm lens you need to realise that your camera at 50mm won't give the same result.

Ann said...

Think Marco said that the small SLRs have an enlargement factor of 1.6. So my 18-250 is actually giving me approx 28-380 on my camera.

Ann said...

Don't worry about it too much, just learn what your camera will do. You're not likely to go back to film and I don't know about you, but I don't have the money to upgrade to a full frame camera.

I know I've said it at least twice before, but gee I'm enjoying your journey(s). It makes me want to find a course to consolidate my book learnin'.
