'80 S1

Post by Chud » Mon Dec 31, 2012 12:32 am

I was fortunate enough to get a good camera for christmas having always wanted to get into photography so thought I'd bore you with my early attempts at getting some half decent photo's. Some are taken with the stablemate Renault 5 GTT as you can see, but hey - it'll have a rotor soon anyway.

Cheers Ian, yeah I find it quite rewarding. I got given a Canon 1100D which is a relatively entry level DSLR but does way more than I'd need at the moment I chuffed as nuts with it.

Since then I've bought a tripod which is a necessity for slow shutter speed shots and a remote button. I started off using the 'CA' mode which stands for Creative Auto and allows you a bit more freedom with shots like getting Depth of Field etc sharp foreground, out of focus background - that sort of thing. It still does the focusing if you so wish but takes care of shutter speed and aperture setting. For the shoots with the light trails it just took trial and error to get the hang of the settings as aperture and shutter speed go hand in hand really so you've got to get them right. I used 'Bulb' setting in the Manual menu, F13 aperture from memory with 4 seconds exposure. Believe me I ended up with far more shots of brilliant white than I did successful ones.

Look up a book by David Taylor - he does camera specific books and I found it a great help as it talks in English rather than phototechnical bullshit that I don't understand. Think you said you had a Canon Rebel which he definitely does one for.

Cheers dude, drive one though - you won't be disappointed they're absolutely hilarious.
