I dont have anything to say about this picture. Instead there is a discussion I want to carry over from yesterday. Below is my reply to the last comment I got from suby yesterday

"This brings up a very good point. In all my reading,studying,and practicing of photography. I was never really able to appreciate the use of full manual over lets say Av and Tv, I always felt like yeah you could use it compensate for wrong exposure during tricky situations, but you could still achieve these benefits with Av or Tv. Lets get specific in this case now, suby, How would using manual have solved my problem of low available light ?. I welcome others to contribute."

If you really want to follow this please read through yesterdays comments from suby. I hope this will be a learning experience for everyone including myself.

When shooting sport or motion use AV to set the apature (normally wide open) then set the ISO to get the required shutter speed. If the speed drops below the acceptable rangde then raise the ISO. This Fot TV, if the light drops below the min aperture then the image will under expose which is bad if you are a using high ISO. If the light is bright and not changeable and you have a fast lens then TV may be the better option.

The cars looks more like an Audi

Ok I hit the send key a bit too quickly!!

Nice pick by the way

Mobolaji Kamson: Sola thanks. but the question relating to maunaul vs. Av and Tv was in relation to yesterdays image not todays.

Wow Sola, whats going on with your send button smile. Mask, is that your reflection I see? Still reading up on Av TV etc etc so I can't give a good opinion on this i'm afraid.
Mobolaji Kamson: You know i never noticed that, anyways it not me. I think its some dude walking his dog or something.

Sola has gone all PHOTO-TECHY on us oh! What's all this ISO shutter talk? Heheh. Loving the car.
Mobolaji Kamson: LOL !
Thank you

I shoot mostly landscapes (although from my blog you may not think so) so I'm almost exclusively in aperture priority (Av). I choose the Av depending on the depth of field of sharp focus I want to achieve.

Using full manual mode requires using a light meter to give you the correct reciprocal shutterspeed. This can be more accurate than the camera's meter, but as often as not will give you the same reading as your camera. Another advantage of full manual mode is that it slows you down (as does using a tripod) so you think more about the shot you're taking. Not always viable when you're travelling light and moving fast.

So, for the most part, I'm in the why bother with full manual camp at the moment.
Mobolaji Kamson: My sentiments exactly !

Eeecck they doth challenge the Subster, Shame I have to fight another day cause if I start writing....., me going to write a book and me not got the time. When i get back from holiday, me will respond smile

To the shot above. Me extremely "NO LIKEY".

SHOT IN PROGRAM MODE??? AAarrrggghhhh I GIVE UP. smile

Suby
P.s
Seems today is generally a "post all duff or semi duff picture day on Shutterchance"(even the Subster has not be en able to escape the wrath of some smile )

What is going on guys?
Mobolaji Kamson: LMAO !
Men Suby I have to admit todays picture does not cut it, not because you don't like it, but because i did not try. I should have taken Mista skees advice and NOT post anything at all, ALAS the pull of the shutterchance mystic powers has proven too strong.

I will be waiting for your response though.
In the meantime go get married ! smile

Lets get rollin'.

WIL:
-The idea behind this shot. I can see EXACTLY what you trying to attempt, and its a very intresting and cool thing.*
-Motion captured*
-The section of the car photographed.

WIDL:
-*While the idea is intresting, the execution of this shot has not been made properly. Maybe retry with proper focus and proper shutterspeed.
-Colors. They are very dull, and the poor focus does not help.
-*The motion capture. Its not working unless its a FULL out motion or none at all. Semi motion captures add to blurryness. Considering the focus of this shot is no dead on, it makes things worse.
-Angle. It seems you stood up for this shot or that you were at an elevated spot. Try coming down from there, pulled back you 200mm to 50 and get closer.

Overall, I see your "vision" but I don't see it on here.

E for effort and 4.0/10 for the shot.

Mobolaji Kamson from Great Britain (UK) 24 May 2006, 16:01
I am not suprised reza, i actually scored myself 2.5/10 Just for kicks I'll put up another one tommorow and see if I do any better !

On my film DSLR I usually used either the Av or Tv modes depending on what I was trying to achieve. Tv for action shots or night and Av for DOF effects. Still haven't found a place where I'd need to use full manual. But if I do get a pentax DSLR I'll be investing in some manual lenses and my opinions could change then. Chunter's comments are quite astute I have to say..

deji77 from Great Britain (UK) 24 May 2006, 23:31
I too side with Simon (chunter) and Attah on this one as well. But I guess as my experience grows (and I upgrade to a proper DSLR) things might change.
All has been said about the shot. Nice concept too.

To be honest I think all has been said, if you are wondering how I use Tv, Av and Manual:-

Tv - When I want to play with motion blurs
Av - For everything else
Manual - When I'm using my flash
Program - When I can't be bothered with settngs and want to get a good shot regardless of style.
