Moving thing is moving





1/20 second, f/22. It's my shutter, and I'll decide how slow it goes. Actually, this is as slow as it goes without hopelessly washing everything out - as it is the white bits are burned out.

Also, I discovered when I got home that there'd been a bloody great speck of dust on the lens, which showed up terribly when using the smallest aperture. Fortunately, I can has clone brush.

hmm, you could try playing with the light metering and picture style to see if that makes any difference. I don't really know those features well enough yet to know if it would though.

I was pretty much ignoring the light metering at this stage. The idea was to slow the shutter as much as possible to capture the movement of the turbine blades. This meant picking the lowest ISO and the highest f/ possible, winding the shutter speed down to the point where the picture was all washed out, then taking it back one click. That all effects how much charge gets collected in the pixels on the sensor before it gets read out.

The picture style tells the camera what that much charge from the chip means in terms of what colour it should display where on the screen. So, no, I believe that this image is at the limit of what this camera can do. I'm not disappointed - far from it.

oh, it's cool. I'm surprised it's as washed out as it is at that speed though... guess it's that uv light. Actually that's what you'd need - a tinted UV filter. You could probably get a secondhand one super cheap.

True that, a filter would do the trick.

The effect of your lovely photo is heightened by your use of Lolspeak. :-)
