Contest Booty?

Hi. I was awarded a 1st place prize in the Digital Days Photo contest and I received a tee shirt, patches and stickers but have not received any information about signing up for the photography workshop. There is a workshop coming to San Jose in March and I would like to lock that in. Am I missing something? Thanks, Stuart

I've made a high speed photography device [instructable included]

Why I did this project? A friend of me who's really passionate about photography showed me some high speed photography examples. And how expensive the equipment you need is. I said there must be a DIY solution for that and I started tinkering. Now it's finished I'm amazed by the results I get from it. https://www.instructables.com/id/High-Speed-Photography-1/

Photography contest?

Ermm I've noticed a real nuisance with the photography contest, so far the majority of what I've seen is 'how to take a professional photo' the problem is everyone's suddenly become a professional photographer overnight... I don't mean to offend those that are by the way... My big gripe is the fact that there's not as much variation on these, like the pocket contest varied far and wide but everyone has seemingly made the same instructable... On the upside there will no longer be any really bad photos about the place. I just want to see some more variations...

Canon t2i Versus Canon 7D (to be used with 50 mm 2/8 lens)

I'm looking into buying a Canon dSLR camera body, to be used with the 50 mm 2/8 lens for food photography. I'd need to purchase the additional lens no matter which camera I buy. I want to avoid purchasing two cameras, and I am hoping to buy the right one from the start. Over the next few years, I'd be shooting a lot of macro food photography with whichever model I purchase. Between the Canon t2i or a Canon 7D body, is the large initial investment for the Canon 7D wiser in the long run? Or can a Canon t2i produce professional-quality results?

Sharing a Night of Photographic Insomnia: HAYCORNS Version

The night just seemed to get weirder and weirder...  and then it carried into the next day...  It started off with me finding a bunch of pretty acorns and then remembering that acorns are called haycorns in Winnie the Pooh and that Tigger hates haycorns and then I noticed that some of the acorns looked like they had little hats and then I remembered the Silly Hats Convention and so forth... I wouldn't recommend going on a photography binge while sleep deprived.

Alternative Photography Project

I am currently in the Advanced Photography class at my high school. One of the assigned projects is simply titled "Alternative Photographic Technique." Basically, we have to create an image without using 35mm film (not digital, either). The specific techniques that he recommends are:Photogram-arranging objects directly on the photo paper, without using a camera at allHolga- The teacher has a few Holga cameras with 120 film for class use to take artistically lousy imagesPinhole Camera- If you don't know what this is, you probably can't answer my question anyway.Cyanotype- a special emulsion is painted on watercolor paper, then exposed in sunlight under a large transparency. Search "cyanotype" to see what it is.Polaroid image transfer- an image taken with a Polaroid Two-Step camera is transferred from the film to watercolor paper-looks cool, but expensiveCan anyone suggest other interesting ideas? I'd like to keep it simple and inexpensive, and I have to have 8"x10" total printed image.Weissensteinburg? Are you there?Edit 5-12-08: I have printed some 5x7s with my cool new technique. I matted them today, and I turn them in on Thursday.

Waist Level Finder peripheral for a compact digital camera - Street photography!

Posting to here and cross-posting to Photography! Hoping someone can help. I'll be traveling to Japan in a month, and I have a simple point and click digital camera. I was hoping to get some candid street shots as well as in the stores/etc but I've heard people get a little nervous when foreigners are running around photographing stuff. I was researching ways to be a little more inconspicuous with getting photographs and one of the ways I found was a waist level finder. Basically, you can take photographs from your waist, and there's a little screen that points upwards to let you see what you're shooting. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waist-level_finder Basically I was wondering if anyone had any ideas how to build one of these things that I could attach to a point and click camera? I imagine it'd be pretty ghetto, like cardboard and mirrors and tape haha. Any ideas would be much appreciated, thanks!

Why are my pictures over exposed when taking pictures of running water?

My camera keeps telling me the 'subject is too bright' when trying to take pictures of running water. To get thet 'smokey look' the shutter needs to be left open for say 3 seconds or more but my camera says the subject is too bright consequently the results are over-exposed. Even on a very dull day with ISO at a minimum and a dark filter on my lense. What am I doing wrong?

(Arduino) automated macro-photography rail

Hi everyone, I would like to build an Arduino automated macro-photography rail (let's call it AAMR). I'm a decent software engineer and I want to learn electronics, so I'm looking for someone telling me I'm going in the right direction... The idea sounds simple, I want to : 1/ place the subject on the AAMR 2/ input the # of pictures needed to perform a "focus stacking" (https://en.wikipedia.org/?title=Focus_stacking) 3/ push the start button and make the AAMR loop n times through the following steps : - trigger the camera to take a picture of the subject - move the subject 1 millimetre toward the camera After a couple weeks reading and day-dreaming, here are my thoughts. I need : - to read more :) - a steeper motor and its driver (I own bipolar steppers and L298 / L293 IC) - to trigger the camera (Canon EOS 70d : remote cable is quite easy to make) - a potentiometer and 2* 7segment displays (input and display the # of pictures) - a start button - a reset button to make the rail come back at position Zero - two "end of course" buttons (not sure about the English terminology), just in case the motor wants to jump over the board - power (5v for the arduino and the logic, 12v for the motors) I. Arduino ---------- First things first, I plan to use an Arduino Uno during prototyping and replace it by a home made board in the final product. Uno has 14 Digital I/O Pins and 6 Analog Input Pins : - stepper => 6 Digital pins (3 ?? if using http://www.bristolwatch.com/L298N/L298N_arduino.htm) - 7segment led => 3 Digital pins if using shift registers (https://www.instructables.com/id/Different-methods-of-driving-7-Segment-LED-display/step5/null/) - start button => 1 Digital pin - reset button => 1 Digital pin - "end of course" buttons => 2 Digital pins - camera trigger => 1 Digital pin (to drive an opto isolator / solid state relay) - potentiometer => 1 Analog pin 14 Digital pins ! Uno should do the job, am I right ? (I know I could use Analog pins as Digital ones, but it seems I don't need it...) II. PSU ------- Next interrogation is about power supply : I don't want a battery powered device and my options are scarce : - ATX PSU supplies both 5 and 12v, but Arduino seems to like >5v, so ATX doesn't seem a good choice - home made PSU from an existing wall wart -> voltage divider to get ~7v and ~14v -> 7805/7812 voltage regulator (may need heatsinks and/or little fan) If I do the math : - Arduino : 50ma - Stepper motor : 700mA max - L298 : 70mA (quiescent current) - 2* 7Segment LED (multiplexed) : 2 * 80mA (estimated) - Shift registers IC (SN74HC595N) : 1ma (optional : Hex inverter 74LS04 : ?? mA) Total : around 980mA... Am I doing right ? I have tons of questions left (Hex inverter, filter capacitors, motor noise reduction, solid state relays...), but it's a good start :) Sorry for the long post, and thanks in advance for your answers !

There's high-speed photography, and there's high-speed photography...

High speed bullet photography is cool - the precision of catching the bullet flying through a carefully-placed target. But how about hitting a moving target?  How about hitting a single drop of water? Dutch photographer Alexander Augusteijn can do it, apparently using normal flashes, but with the timing controlled by computers. Lex Augusteijn Photography via PetaPixel

One of the keys to getting your work featured is good photography. At the very least, a really good thumbnail, taken from your first Introduction image, helps bring casual browsers to look at your work, and is good for sharing via Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest. This link focuses on a woodturning project, but has a lot of good advice useful for all Makers, including processing your images afterwards. Highly recommended to anybody who cares about their projects. LINK Via @TomsWorkbench Image from Three Seasons Woodturnings
