    High framerate video recording

    I used a camera this year that could shoot ~1600x1200 at 1000fps. It's called the Phantom V9. I don't recall the exact price, but I know it was a lot. Possibly too expensive to rent even... not sure.

    The Ladies of Prodrift for C&C

    Nice shots Paddy. Couple of things I notice: In #1, there's a light stand that looks like it's sticking out of the model's armpit... that's kind of distracting to me, clone stamp time? I don't mind the high contrast, shadowy look. Something different compared to typical fashion photography...

    It's in Vancouver, Canada. There are a lot of similar looking places around though. Is it where you were thinking of? Canada Day fireworks:

    Thanks! Hmm, could be worth a different thread, there are so many possible issues! Try to give us as much information as possible. How were you triggering the flash? What sort of flash was it? What was your lighting setup like? What was the ambient light? What were your camera settings...

    Vivitar 285HV

    I have a couple. For the price, you couldn't ask for much more. The main issues I've noticed so far are the size (these are huge compared to most other flashes), The lack of resolution when adjusting power (Full, 1/2, 1/4, 1/16. What happened to 1/8? And there are times when I'd prefer to be...

    Beautiful sunset here last night. Went for a walk to the beach just near my house to watch it.

    So I'm shooting a 996 Turbo, tips?

    My favourite 996 shot: (From Ruji Wynn, Not sure how that helps you at all... Shooting a car with only one strobe would be tricky. If you try to light it only with the stobe as a main light, you'll end up with one part of the car well lit and the rest...

    Lotus Exige S 240, Triumph Daytona 675, Triumph Speed Triple

    I like the photo of the 2 bikes, nice lighting. Not such a fan of the Exige shot though... the green tinge isn't working for me, especially with that red car. There's a lot of light falloff towards the back of the car, it'd be nice to have some more light on that rear wheel. Also, the...

    what the fuck has happened to my camera

    Try changing the memory card? Could be a problem with a corrupt card... although from looking at that photo, my first guess would be sensor problems... :|

    FIA-GT Silverstone [Lots and lots of pics - 56K etc]

    A lot of shots there... but consistently good, congrats! Lots of high shutter speed shots, a few more panning photos would have been nice. Also, they look kind of dark in general... might have just been the weather. How're you liking the 40D?

    Prodrift IRL Round 1 2008 - Official Shots -

    Top notch shots. :thumbsup: #5 doesn't really fit in with the processing style of the rest of the set (HDR/shadows adjustment?) but I do really like the post processing on the B&W shots.

    Any tips for a night-time photoshoot?

    Shooting at night can be tough. Make sure you've got the white balance set properly, to avoid everything having a nasty yellow tint. Also, if you can try and shoot earlier in the evening. Shots with a pure black sky (ie. no ambient light from the sun/moon) don't normally look so good. Good...
