Seriously Jim, you're scheduled to work days this week!
Thanks Steve. I was going for that "street light" look. It's a balancing act to get enough light for detail, yet still look like a true night shot. Faster exposure time and more light seems to help. I was reflecting the LED flashlight off the ceiling at an angle to keep the background dark and the parking lot lit.Steve B said:That second pics a good one Eric
I think your caption is the way to go!RexHea said:Yeah Eric, the second picture is very good and realistic, but they are not talking about the schedule. Big Jim to Bo: "I don't care whatcha sez, I only drank half that flat bottle and I ainta gonna ride in no danged taxi."
Me too! and the glare from the headlights is more realistic than the glow in the second shot. (I also like RexHea's caption. I was thinking that the first time I looked at it.... )Brunton said:The first one has that "under a streetlight" look to me. I like it better than the second one.
The Chevy has 1.7mm 1.5v bulbs. I increased the resistor value for the second pic because one of the bulbs blew in short order and the dimmer lights reduce flare. I may need to find a happy medium though. I'm still undecided, but am leaning toward the dimmer lights. They look better in person than in the pics. I do have to go back and clean up the paint that seeped around the left light.rhoward said:and the glare from the headlights is more realistic than the glow in the second shot.
That suggestion has been made. I think I'll put up a poll over in the contest forum and get a more detailed idea as to how much interest there really is.rhoward said:Say ... Wait a minute .... Do you suppose the July Photo contest is going to be ..... night time shots?????? I better start practicin'!
Rex, I bet you're thinking of O. Winston Link, who did all the N&W photos during the Fifies.RexHea said:...What was that photographer's name from the old days that took all those incredible B/W shots. I read his story once. Man, he worked hard but got some wonderful photos.
