So... long time no see. ^^;

Must have been half a year since I last posted something. I haven't really taken any new photographs, so this one is a bit old. It was taken in London Zoo when I was with ~Roweidekhalicon, the same place I took Thrust.

Not much to say about this one, other than it's damn hard trying to crop it into a balanced square when parts are leaning in different directions. :P

Anyway, I hope you guys like it. Hopefully this one will be the first of many to come. :dummy:

The longer your stache is, the wiser you are, don't you know?
This little guy is so adorable ;_;

With these zoo shots, I always wonder - how far away were you from this guy, and how much of it was the zoom on your camera? They look so close and detailed, I'd never guess any zoom was used :heart:

Really? :O

I was pretty damn far away, I have to say. I was using the 100m f/2.8, so it was quite far. :hmm:

Great shot, looks so natural. I have the Japanese version of the Canon t2i rebel, is yours newer than that, or simply better specced? Yours seems to take very good pictures. I've only got two lenses, though. One came with it, the other I bought which was for extra range, so not sure if I just need a better lens. :dummy:
Reply
:icon3wyl:
3wyl Featured By Owner May 11, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Hmm..

Mine is older, I think. The Canon T2i would be the 550D, right?

Mine is the 40D, which is obsolete now. I think there is a 60D out there already.

But 40D is slightly higher than 550D on the scale of 'professionalism', so a bit better specced, yes. :P

The lens can very much influence the shot. What lenses do you have?
Reply
:iconfalseshepherd:
FalseShepherd Featured By Owner May 11, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Yeah, 550D it is.



The longer range is EF-S IS, 55-250mm. This seems to make pictures look a bit cloudy at times.


The one I got with it which seems to do better with quality is EF-S IS 18-55mm.

I got the additional one from eBay quite a while back now, though it was below 100 if I remember, so not sure if it was best for quality in the first place.

:icon3wyl:
3wyl Featured By Owner May 12, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Ah, I see. :nod:

How do you mean cloudy? =/

That's a good range. :nod:

You should look at the f stop number for the quality, I think. :hmm:

The best lenses are quite expensive.. 50mm 1.8 being the exception. :P

FalseShepherd Featured By Owner May 12, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Some pictures look as though I've taken them in fog with it, it's less noticeable in really good or strong lighting, but still can see it.


I still have very little idea of what most photography things mean, despite being in to it more seriously the past few years. :| I'll have to start looking it up more.


Yeah, damn those money grabbers, damn them! :shakefist:
Reply
:icon3wyl:
3wyl Featured By Owner May 12, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Hmm... :hmm:

That could be because of the way the lens is built, I guess.. that's why you should judge a lens by the f stop, like. The lower the number, the better it is.

:hug:

Photography is an expensive hobby. ^^;
