Re: Dust!!!!

Caveat to live cleaning. Be sure not to apply too much force to cause the stabilisation pain and suffering. Also be sure the shutter doesn’t close on the cleaning stick, eg an inadvertent shutter...

Re: Dust!!!!

If you can find one of appropriate size with a reasonable airtight stopper, by all means. Make sure to thoroughly clean the container before use. Wash in soapy water, rinse, dry, then flush with...

Re: Dust!!!!

Although it appears that decomposition at stp is not an issue, molecular 'stripping' may occur and the effect of course will depend on the size of the monomer (quoted in standard text, presumably) in...

Re: Dust!!!!

I read some advice to get fresh Eclipse; apparently over time the alcohol degrades the plastic bottle potentially resulting in desolved plastic in solution. When the alcohol evaporates the plastic...

Re: Dust!!!!

F/16 shot against a homogeneous background, defocussed, is the way I check for sensor contamination. The Oly is good for cleaning anything that can shake clear, but sticky stuff is a different order...

Re: Yellow wall comes out grey?

It's useful to 'shoot' some slide film now and again, it's a good way to train the eye. (And yes, I'm aware of choosing a film type appropriate to the light source, to filter or to modify the light,...

Re: Yellow wall comes out grey?

Why do you want a yellow wall as a backdrop to a subject(s) that contains yellow.

Re: Flickr Sold To SmugMug

To add balance to the conversation, if we don't pay for the product we end up being the product. Facebook and Cabridge Analytica spring to mind.

Re: Flickr Sold To SmugMug

Smugmug is a subscription service, starting at 3.99 US$ per month. I suspect Flickr will go the same way. However, I use my account for storage and hosting and as such I would not wish to subscribe....

Re: Monthly comp Bridges

I'll need to change the sensor for colour... maybe a roll of Ektar. With the right light it's capable of producing 'robust' colours.

Re: About to buy a Pen-F

When you say 'movement' I think we need to be careful with our words. All particles in nature (unless massless particles exist, and yes I'm familiar with E=MC^2) have momentum when in motion. The...

Re: Toy Aeroplane

Thank you Athena.
I was trying to finish a roll of film, so picked this scene to help; 72 frames can be a bonus and a curse! I was using the 70mm f2 (the Pen F has a 1.4 crop, making it equivalent...

Re: About to buy a Pen-F

I suspect you're looking at the Pen F or Pen FT half frame, but 60 is likely to buy a heap of junk.
Here's my Pen FT complete with 40mm f/1.4. Add another naught and you're getting closer to the...

Re: Toy Aeroplane

Thanks Huw, but it's very composition 101 - the cliche shot!

It's some form of memorial to the bombing of Liverpool, particularly the docks, during WW2; strange for it to depict a German aeroplane.

Re: Bamburgh Castle

Rules, rules rules. There are no rules. The only rule is to ignore the rules.

Excellent photography, Paul.

Re: The Desk

Personally I think the outside should be subordinate to the main subject, and well done too.

Here's me thinking digital will never catch-on, but I could be wrong!
