Danman, you’re a film-man like me. That’s how I understand ‘pushing’ too. Things have moved on since….Interestingly, Humbug’s Canon 350 is what Santa’s bringing into the terubo household shortly – looking forward to finding out more about these new-fangled digital things!

Danman 10:41 pm 21 Dec 06

Isnt pushing when shooting and developing film at a higher rated speed than what is marked? (ie longer time in chemical bath – warmer water etc)

Not too familiar with pushing on a digital.

All I do is keep the ISO at 100 (for my night photos) and shoot between f3.5 and f16 – and stopwatch it from there and make further adjustments after the shot.

pure digital….Canon 350D

terubo 3:26 pm 21 Dec 06

Yeah, interesting. Years since I did any ‘serious’ photog. Would love to get back into it, tho’.

Danman 2:52 pm 21 Dec 06

so this was 35mm was it ?

Impressive – I have a roll of b+w i need to shoot at home -then develop print etc etc – just too lazy to set up the darkroom in the bathroom

as far as noise is concerned I find that noise introduced via pushing is greater than by setting a higher ISO. I could have gone to ISO 400 on my camera and not introduces as much noise as by pushing by 2 stops (which is what I did to get this)

Danman 1:17 pm 21 Dec 06

read f16

Danman 1:16 pm 21 Dec 06

You dont want to raise the ISO – that would lead to un-necessary hot spots and grain.

ISO100 is best for low light.

f3.5 makes more sence than my f1 – I can see teh depth of field now that terubo mentioned it.

Good to see that the pictures of canberra have had the ante upped.

bigger version here

ok…for the photo nuts.
ISO 100 1/60 at f3.5 handheld looking over the car bonnet. I snapped it just as I was getting back into the car. If I had the patience I would have upped the iso but there you go. The original shot is quite dark…lots of pushing to get some detail and some noise reduction.

I also adjusted the colours a bit to get the blue sky and the red of the sunset.

terubo 12:37 pm 21 Dec 06

I’d say 1/8th sec at f5.6 – background land ever so slightly soft, thus helping tree to ‘stand out’. Lovverly pic, Humbug, but if I may be so bold as to suggest a slight tilt-down would’ve shown the tree trunk on the ground which might have helped the overall composition…
-But there may well have been a fence or something in the way.

I’m just here in appreciation of the word ripsnorter. You don’t hear that enough.

Nice photo though.

Danman 12:31 pm 21 Dec 06

f16 for 1/60th ?


Tech notes ?

Looks sweet

That shot has motivated me – I have to take a quick drive out to Dubbo in the early hours of Saturday morning, I might take the camera along to see if I can get some nice shots of the dawn.

Wow the colour in that awesome – photoshop’d at all?
