    You have mis interpertated my use for the bible. Up untill I was 40 I couldn't get my head around the camera as I was not taught and most of my photo's were shit I had basic knoweledge of day time photography (sunny) so I got this idea and went and did it and the exersise answered all my unanswered questions after all from when I started shooting to when I finished the lighting had changed from a 4 o'clock sky to a sunset it was a way to show me how the camera and lens worked and from that day my Photo's never looked back. I had already worked out you used a light box what I was really curious about was the iso you used and from there the shutter and aperture a little different to where i would have started but now

    i have a different starting point.or could even work between your and my starting point. The shots I did like yours had a slightly darker sky with coloured cloud. I once did a selfie long before selfies were popular its a hard shot to work out set your camera up chose a spot with a dark centre in the photo use the trailing flash and the long timer hit the shutter button and run into the photo pose wait for the flash and use the manual settings you would use if you didn't have a flash then see how many people can tell you how you did it. Its surprising how many don't have a clue and these are profesional guys but this is my special shot don't share this one. Use a slightly higher F stop than fully open and a longer shutter speed to hide yourself getting in the photo.

    I'll share somthing I did once will cost you a quid. I went out with about 10-20 rolls of film in the afternoon overlooking a lake to the west sunset material, and from about 1 hr before sunset I started shootingmoving one stop at a time then the shutter speeds and each shutter speed I went through the range of stops again would be heaps more now with the many iso's possible I wrote down the settings for each shot got them all developed and put them in the largest photo album I have and as I put them in the album I wrote all the settings next to each photo I call it my bible

    I just hadn't mastered the portrait sunset at that point in time hence not having the settings. With the photos all laided out together basicly one shutter speed would cover two pages of photos if you want an effect at any time you can just open the bible and there it is it gives you an unreal view of what a camera can do. When I enrolled in tafe and did cert 2 and 4 photography I learnt only one thiong from the course and that was how to make and use a pinhole camera. The rest of the course I could already do just by being self taught. The Photo Album really gave me a good handle on things now would be a good time for me to get it out again.

    Thats really decent of you to share looks pretty much like the film would be. I got a diffuser coming in the male for mt af360 flash. when it gets here I'll have a crack at it. I used to be pretty good at portrait sunsets did a few weddings back in the day. Moving house to the middle of nowhere totally killed the Photographer prospects.

    Hello Clackers I been playing with my K-5II and I've gotten to the section where I can save user settings and I was wondering if I could borrow your settings from Madeleine Portrait in front of the sunset as they would be a bit different to the 35mm which would have been F3.5 30-60 shutter speed and would have been some TTL flash but knowing the sensor may have an effect I was wondering if I could get a copy of the Photo details it would save me allot of time and hiring a model as My Mrs is ill and very figity and can't hold still for half a second. You see i could just add those settings then fine tune froim there with my camera I gues I could use a tree for a model I guess. Any way its up to you if you want to lend me such info. Cheers.

    Hi Ian, I am in a bit of a conundrum, I have ACDSEE PRO in my notebook for downloading photos but I know it is a copy as it was bundled with loads of stuff when I bought the PC now I have problems uploading pics, I would like to either buy a new one on line or put something else in the PC that would work properly, sorry to bother you but ant advice would be helpful, thanks IAN

    My name is Jeff from Virginia, US. I saw a reply to a post you did that recommended a KS1. I shoot mostly weddings. In march of next year I plan on doing just photography for a living. I am finalizing my equipment purchasing while I have a regular income. At this point I have the following bodies and lenses:
    18-55 kit
    DA 50-200 wr
    DA 50 1.8
    DA 35 2.4
    FA 28-80
    Sigma 18-200
    Sigma 70-300
    My customers have gave me all positive reviews and are pleased with my work. I just want to get a little higher quality results. With me trying to maximize what I get for my money this is the three pieces I am looking at adding:
    KS1 body
    Sigma 17-50 2.8
    DA* 50-135
    What do you think of my choices and do you have any suggestions?
