    The old one is showing signs of wear, so out with the old, in with the new.

    I've fettled it in CS3 a bit.

    sorry, more bloody landscapes from a man in love with his surroundings.
    I think I need a decent lens: any ideas?

    Mr pimpernel,

    I dont know your level of knowledge of photography, so forgive me if I'm suggesting stuff you already know !

    First, get yourself a tripod. Even a cheap used one off ebay for a tenner (like wot mine is) is perfect.

    Next, shoot at something like f8 or smaller, this will give a sharper shot with more in focus.

    Next, the reason for the tripod. Take 2, or even 3 shots, at different exposures, without moving the camera, AT ALL ! You can use bracketing on your 500D for this, or simply adjust it manually usinging the thumb wheel. You can then combine these shots in an editing program to give a perfectly exposed shot.

    Hope this is some help as you may find you dont really need a better lens

    Good advice BB,
    No, please suggest any advice: although I had some formal training in Photography when I did my graphic design degree, it seems that much of it has been lost in my mind - mainly through laziness on my behalf. Amazing considering we used to have a fully equipped analogue darkroom!

    I know about using the tripod - and I know it makes an enormous difference. In fact, I have an excellent, heavy Manfrotto. It's just that I often go for a walk and grab the camera "just in case", and sod's law usually dictates that's exactly the time when I see the best shots. I think I need to be more thorough about equipment when I go out taking shots: like Mr Cat, PurplePleaser and yourself: I see you all get very consistent results.

    But the f.8 idea is something I'll try. Thanks.

    Re: the lens: I'm still using the Canon EFS 18-55mm that was bundled together when I bought the package, and although it's great considering how inexpensive it is: the fact remains that the lens simply doesn't have the finesse to grab enough detail.
    I'm happy to be patient and buy new toys slowly.

    I think I will take s2000db advice and look at a decent Sigma.
    I saw one recently but my parsimonious alter-ego got the better of me at the time.

    ... now where's that dusty wallet of mine!

    Cheers,
    SP

    Okay: just to show that it's just occasionally possible for The Pimpernel to stop obsessing about taking landscapes!

    We went for a walk in the woods last week fungi-foraging, and found this lovely leaf, where the Devon dampness has rotted the "flesh", but maintained the skeleton structure of the veins.

    Later, it was languishing on our window-sill at home, when some rays of autumn sunshine caught the light and make these lovely patterns: (which a little extra arranging )

    Cheers,

    Here's one from a project I'm working on. It was taken in the Cathedrale D'Images in Provence. If you're ever down that way it's worth a trip, an awesome audio visual experience.

    Sory, the image has not uploaded, I'll try again.
