Some people love 'em, other hate 'em (ME!!!). It's time to get a grip with your flashing (keep the overcoats closed please...).

Let's show Flash Kit what FLASH means in photography.

Use this week's theme creatively and let's see those photos!!

As always, the Ru|3z:

This is NOT a PhotoShop battle it is a photography battle. Only slightly touched up photos may be submitted.
Let's keep the file and image size under FK guidelines (under 750 px wide).
All photographs must be related to the current weekly theme.
Photographs must be taken by the idividual posting (no stealing photos).
Use any camera (ie. cellphone, point-and-shoot, disposable) just submit!
Multiple submission are welcomed.
Photos must be no more than a week old. Take some NEW pictures people!


Have fun, get creative, post as often as you like.

I assume it's okay to mix a first/second curtain flash technique with a sloe shutter speed?

</borderline last-weeks theme, I know>

Well I dont have a SB 600 or 800 for my D70 yet , so I gave this a try. After the lights were off in the fish tank, set the camera to 1/2sec shutter speed and held an old flash over the tank, hit the shutter release and then fired the flash with my other hand. getto fab!

i think you need to be more specific with how you want creative flash photos, EVP. When i read it, i thought...well, i use flash with my photos...whats the problem, unless i'm in front of a window? THen i see bob post something that was HOW he used a special flash technique. For some of us who have only in-camera flash, we're a bit limited on how to creative use flash? I don't know, it's just my thought.

i've actually got a couple of things brewing, but no computer to make them happen.
my new desky should be on my porch in 2.5 hours though!!!

give it time, we'll come through.
this is the photography forum right?...WE CAN DO IT!!!

Just used the flash to lighten up the scene in the beginning of a 15 second exposure

Kinda funny, in the first pic that towbstone all the way to the left we have a picture of the left side of that and there is no "orbs" they just stop right at that one...maybe the ghost are afraid to pass it...puhha

That IS suprising. Especially right where the water hits.

I guess that is the effect of using FLASH. The flash was what captured the moment.

How did you get all that info?

Does the camera save that into the pictur file?

Most digital, if not all digital cameras have EXIF (http://www.exif.org/) data attatched to the file. I look at it in my PSCS File Browser metadata panel.

I am also working on php functions to extract and use that data.

robbmcaulay
08-26-2005, 01:53 PM
Yeh, it's called Exif Metadata...


The metadata tags defined in the Exif standard cover a broad spectrum including:

* Date and time information. Digital cameras will record the current date and time and save this in the metadata.
* Camera settings. This includes static information such as the camera model and make, and information that varies with each image such as orientation, aperture, shutter speed, focal length, metering mode, and film speed information.
* Location information, which could come from a GPS receiver connected to the camera. As of 2004 only a few cameras support this, though. Some people therefore use a normal receiver to track their movements, and then post-process the images by matching the timestamps in the images with the log from the receiver and can so add the missing information to images.
* Descriptions and copyright information. Again this is something which is most often done when post-processing the images, as only high-end camera models let the user choose a text for these fields.

Does the camera save that into the pictur file?You asked this same question here (http://flashkit.com/board/showthread.php?t=645121) and I thought I answed it quite nicely. ;)


The clarity of the capture is due to the flash, yes. The rest of the time serves for some small DOF and lighting, nothing more.
