March 5, 2008 Photos (Flowers, Jenny, Oxana, Track)

I was waiting for her to get off work before we went to the track to meet up with some of the other "Jenny guys", so I was bored and decided to do some shots of stuff that isn't a car. So I experimented with the cherry blossom trees at the Galleria Mall in Roseville.




















And of course, the car. I was messing with my circular polarizer to get rid of window and light reflections. I think it worked pretty well, especially since the light glint/glare was actually a lot worse coming off the headlight than it shows here.






At the track, took a lot more, but with my sh*tty sk*lls, a lot came out blurry due to me not having a completely steady hand. I set the ISO as low as I could, but I think the "Non-Flash" program overrides what I set in the "shooting menu", so there's still noise. The camera's stock flash was useless in the car shots since they were so far away. But with Steve's help (thank you!), I'll get better.












And photos of the better photographer of the two of us.

Setting her better camera, and better lens.


One of the other GTO guys let her ride shotgun during one of the runs he made. I didn't run Jenny, because she's still stock and I want to wait until I get my mods done.




And the last candid shot I did of her, which I think came out really well considring it was me taking the picture.

The cherry blossom pictures are pretty nice looking, although some of them look a tad underexposed to me.

By far your best photo in my opinion. Pretty sick shot man, great capture.

I agree with Doc X, that was a pretty awesome shot of the Bikes. You're making a lot of improvements!

One of us made mid-12s, but it was his first time at the track and he had no traction. He's supercharged though. I think when I actually go to make a run, I'm either going to leave the TCS on (what's the use of turning it off if all I'm going to do is spin throughout first gear?), or I'm going to start in 2nd.

I got lucky with the bike shot, but I wish it was the closer bike that got focused, and not the further one.

Honestly I think the fact that the further one is not blurred by motion helps your composition. The bike that is closer is like right in the middle of the frame and it wouldn't be as "artsy" or interesting to look at, so it kind of aided you in my opinion.

I agree. with a little bit longer exposure, the cherry blooms picture would look better.

I usually have my tripod and tripod head sitting in my car 24-7 if needed.

On the close-ups, I just used the "flower" program thing. Not sure what I did with the ones farther out, but I think those are either full auto or landscape. The bike shot was done in the "running man" mode, and I just held down the button to take several shots in a row, and tried to follow the one closer (I must have fallen behind), and picked the shot with one of them being the clearest.

Very nice! My favorite was the panned drag bikes at 1/8s! Wow! Those are really hard to pull off but you got it! The cherry blossom stuff looks good too. Just need to post-process a bit and they'll come alive.

original:



1 minute in DxO: Velvia film profile, cooled white balance a bit, unsharp mask at 150%, 0.3px radius, 0 threshold, medium lighting correction, 50% smart vibrancy.


That actually looks a bit over-sharpened now, but that's what tends to happen on a small file.

All that is hard to do in PS. That's why I use DxO. It makes it easy for PS-idiots like me that don't want to bother.

Here's my rendition of the post-processing in Photoshop. Of course it took 1239458451610 seconds longer than SteVTEC's method.
