Camera Club Ideas

Hi everyone, just really throwing a topic out there as I am now the president of my local camera club (seemed like a good idea at the time…….and is still a good idea, but I am nervous about it now…….lol)…

Just a couple of things I would like a hand with:-

I volunteered to present something at the next meeting on pixels/whit balance and histograms…..does anybody have a good reference/website they can recommend. I have a few books and I did a twelve month course where we learned a lot about it, but I have to make up a PPT presentation and so thought I would ask if anyone has a good reference point on the web?

That is probably it for this month as I have to get this done before the 6th August, I agreed to do it on Tuesday night so I still have two weeks to put something together and most of t

7D owners need to see this

This is an interesting YouTube clip comparing the Video Capabilities of the 7D with a Barbie Doll cam and might make you appreciate your choice of camera…even though you don’t get hot shoes!

Enjoy the Video

It is short and sweet and makes me want to buy a Barbie now…for the SHOES!

Can somebody recommend a cheap wide angle

When I say cheap I mean Good Value lens.

I am looking for a wide angle for my Canon 7D, and I need around a 10mm lens as I have the 15-85mm and to shoot property it is not wide enough. Not so worried about speed of lens as most work will be done on tripod.

Thanks for any enlightenment in this area….I know there are a few 7D users around. But really anyone can help here althuogh the full frame people are a little spoiled!.

Thanks in advance

DIY Water Droplets!

New Years Resolution, – Move out of comfort zone in photography!!!…

Today is meant to be 40 degrees C and so I thought staying inside (or going to the beach) was the best option. So I thought a photo project would be the go. WATER DROPLETS…….I googled it first looking for hints and advice and found a really comprehensive and helpful guide here accompanied by a lot of awesome pictures. So how did I go?

After around “a lot” of images I have managed these:-

This was my favourite and was light blue milk into red water. Using food dyes as the means of colours.

This was blue milk into white milk and as you can ell by the blue tinge on the “white” milk, I had been doing a lot of water dropping.

Trying a real Australian theme I was putting green milk into yellow milk. The yellow milk had the same fat

Thank You to all my fellow Bubblers

Well I have been a bit absent from RB for around 6 months, just popping up here and there.…

It has not been the best year ever, but after a few bumps in the road, I am keen to really sink my teeth into my photography especially in the upcoming months. I have been busy with some sports photography over the past few months, but have really drifted away from you guys and from RB and over the past few days a couple of emails I have had and a couple of lovely comments on some pics have reminded me of what a fantastic community this is and how much I love it, sharing pictures, commenting and learning from others and being part of a sharing place.

Thank you for making me smile and even in what may seem a small and insignificant way, thank you for reminding me about the spirit of community.
