Fair do's. All too often on the SLR forums we hear of people buying an SLR and automatically thinking they'll get amazing results.

A-level photography?

Re: Draigflag's ABARTH 500 (new thread!)

I took 3 years of fine art in college, and throughout the 3 years we were only really allowed to use the manual SLR camera's. Only the uni students could use the DSLR's.

Thanks to that we had to learn how to set up maual exposures, lense, frames, developing ourselves. Some kept with point and shoot tactics but ones that wanted to get good shots took the extra 2 mins to get it right and looking good for developing (we also had to develop our own films too which was quite fun).

Anyway sorry for thread jacking .

That's kind of what i did too, manual SLR with B&W film, getting the film out the camera in total darkness and trying to wind it around a spool is interesting! Then developing the photos in the 3 baths, very precise work, a few seconds can make all the difference. I did it as A-level, got B grade i think.

Re: Draigflag's ABARTH 500 (new thread!)

Don't think these rather poor pictures capture just how nice it was yesterday! 31 degrees outside, i went to drive off today and couldn't hold the wheel for more than a few seconds as it was so hot! Perhaps the video gives you an idea! Shorts and sandals anyone!? Lots of nice comments too from plenty of admirers in Barmouth!

Went camping last night too, so hot it never dropped below 20! Last pic is the view near where we camped in the woods! Good times...

YouTube- Summer is here!

Re: Draigflag's ABARTH 500 (new thread!)

Amazing pictures.. It is true, a more expensive camera wont make your pictures better.. it's the subjects, composition and creativity that make the picture...

Wish I had more time to go out and about to take my 500 to more exotic locations.. But last week I had some quick time to take these pictures:

https://www.fiatforum.com/members-mo...old-500-a.html

I took it with my new Canon 550D, but as someone said in this thread before, it's a big learning curve. I only used point and shoot cameras before. But I do films so I have used all sort of film cameras and learned all about exposure and white balance and things like that..

I really like your pictures of the neon place.. very nice eyecandy.

Good work.

Actually try Adobe Lightroom.. They have a beta out that is free until they release the full product.. I've been using it for a few weeks now and you get awesome results.. Google 'Lightroom 3 beta' first link...
