Techniques, tips & tricks for generating pics that rock!
This topic seems to come up again and again, so I made a board for it!
I always enjoy this topic, because I'm always trying to improve my own pics...
If you are seeking to upload a pic you already took, you can find out how here:
Working with new lens and looking for opinions and suggestions. Do you think I'm close? Still need to get a remote trigger, less than half of what I shot was even presentable and definately not sharp enough. Don't forget to click on the pic for full image.
Hi. I see lots of people are asking questions on lights, tents, tripods.
So get this. I have one, it's super!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hope this helps.
Just a comparison
I'm toying with my picture set up and here is a group of marbles shot with two different color backgrounds. I think the black shows the colors better while the white is picking up the warm (yellow color) from the light bulb.
I found a very interesting thread at photo.net re: photographing spheres/marbles. I wanted to mirror it here, as it's right up our alley...
We're still always on the lookout for marble photo tips - marbles definately impose their own special challenges when trying to capture them in a...
Well, I thought I would share a couple of images I did using DOF method. Each picture was a set of 20 images.
I have been disappointed in taking picture because; for the most part only the part close to the lens would be infocus and the edges would be blurred/out of focus. So...

Most people seem to use clear glass or acrylic floral frogs as stands for displaying/photographing small marble lots. I've seen some for sale on ebay, but wondering if anyone knows where to find them locally these days, particularly near Denver.
I'd love to hear any other ideas people have for...

Sadly, there are times that I have more money then time (not very much of one, and none of the other). This seems to be one of them. I am hoping there is a place or person that sells a good back-light set-up for marble pictures... ????????? any hints.. Thank you... ron

I noodled around for awhile trying out my camera on blacklight pics. It's an old Kodak DX7440. I have a good 18" GE blacklight that provides enough output to bring out the flourescence, but I'm still not getting the aperture settings right. This one pic of the whole tray came out fairly good.
