    I m hoping to get out this Tuesday/wednesday on my days off. Until then, these are from a while ago.
    Taken in full auto mode on a Canon dslr 400d with an 80-200mm canon zoom lense. No editing other than a little cropping. The tight zoom gave me the desired short depth of field to keep the subject sharp(ish) and the background blurred. I was hanging off the 300+ft cliffs at Bemmo with Rob having kittens that is was too close to the edge but it was the only way I could get a good shot of the birds on the cliff.

    These sheep were at the roadside near to 'The Lion Inn' up on Blakey Ridge and I used a fuji finepix camera again on full auto.....I liked the windswept look of their coats and the dark sky in the background.

    This swan was getting closer and closer down at HORNSEA MERE I cropped out some of the background as it was drawing the eye away from the swans head.

    A gull near Whitby bandstand,again on the canon but 18-55mm lense this time.

    Still getting used to my Sony Alpha 200 but here's a few I got at Thorpe Perrow at the end of last year:

    the first one: ISO400, F5.6, 1/100 using the 3.5-5.6 18-70 lens
    the secone one: ISO400, F5.6, 1/320 using the 3.5-5.6 18-70 lens
    the third one: ISO400, F5.6, 1/125 using the 3.5-5.6 18-70 lens

    All three were (ashamed to say) shot on the auto setting, I have an idea how to shoot using apature setting but haven't had much chance to practice it yet. Any tips would be great :)

    Iso is something I dont really understand. Can someone explain in terms I may understand what it is please ? I know I have it on my bridge camera but never knew what it does.

    Glenn my understanding of it is that it represents the old film speeds but in digital cameras it is an equivilent figure for how sensitive the sensor in the camera is to light. The higher the number the ability to shoot in reduced light conditions is increased.
    One thing I m not sure about though is does the increase in iso cause "grain" as I remember from my days of films and doing my own developing and printing that the increased film speeds used to cause grain in the image quality....sometimes a desired effect particulary in black and white landscape shots.
    I think ...someone will confirm....that in situations were you need to use a fast shutter speed,such as sports....and the light is of a level where the aperture is already at maximum and the shutter speed is too slow to capture the image without blurring.....increasing the iso will allow a smaller aperture setting and therefore a faster shutter speed hence keeping the image sharp.

    That's my basic understanding of how to work with the iso settings and apperture and shutter speeds .

    Dont take for certain but i believe ISO is to do with the sensitivity to light..

    Most cameras you can adjust the ISO to use higher shutter speed/ smaller apperture a high ISO will allow you to take pictures in lower light situations but this can cause picture noise and make your picture look a bit grainy.
    Try and stick to a lower ISO if you can but in some cases you may need to adjust it to get the result you desire...

    I think thats right.... :confused: :wink:

    Ive just found out that the loss of image quality is increased with the high iso's but unlike film grain the digital noise does not add to the mood of mono shots ....I used to like the grain effect on mono film shots.....suppose down to photoshop to create the effect now.

    Sorry Dave think i must of posted at the same time, but yea i think we are on the right tracks, by the way i love the pics of them Gannets ever since i first saw them when you first posted them a good while back now, and the wind swept sheep is very atmospheric....

    Happy Snapping

    You can get some good pics from most any camera. Partly from reading the manual and, of course, a lot of luck.

    Down in the long grass (of the river swale) trying to out-wit a barbel ...

    Having found out that there was an IR remote for my compact camera I figured that a pile of maggots and a camera might tempt something while I waited for a Tench ...
    (look at the nearside leg and see what I missed by a couple of seconds)

    [​IMG]

    A compact is OK for "landscape" pictures as you head off home after a hard day on the rocks ..

    [​IMG]

    You can adjust the iso and shutter speed for night time shots...

    If you are sad enough to walk out clutching a coffee and think "gee if only I had my camera" then realise that you do ...

    [​IMG]

    Even old (3mp) cameras leave you with memorable shots ...

    [​IMG]

    So.. no more excuses along the lines of "I don't have the kit". lets have some photo's on the thread.

    This is Charlie, taken last July on the old nab at Staithes Olympus 850 SW. Cropped it to remove my right boot from the shot cos I was laid flat on my back with him sat next to me.

    I went out today with the camera and duke....walked nearly 8 miles...the little fellas longest walk to date...and afetr a full day out fishing with me yesterday the little pal is shattered....the dull skies and miserable weather meant the camera saw little action...the best shot of the day is my buddy resting after his walk.

    H, he really is a little star...never thought having a pup would be so easy and bring so much pleasure...but this little chap is always good natured. Mind you yesterday he went on his fisrt fishing trip....he was great..no chasing leads as the casts were made...but he got a liking for my mates bait and pack up...lol...started off on scotch eggs finished up eating fresh yellow tails...lol :cheesy: :cheesy: :cheesy:
    He's proper pooped now after his big walk.
