Where were you before?

Mul olid alati teatud kriteeriumid enda fotode suhtes. Esiteks pidid nad olema väga selged ja teravad, värvid erksad, pigem rohkem kontrasti kui vähem ja viimasena võimalikult müravabad. Ja aegajalt jäid tehtud pildid kasutamata, sest nad polnud minu jaoks piisavalt selliste tingimustega nagu ma ülal mainisin.

Sattusin lugema DPS artiklit selle kohta, kuidas teha selgeid pilte olukordades, kui valgust pole eriti palju või peaaegu üldse, räägin siin päevavalgusest. Loen ja mõtlen - appi, kas loo autor tõesti käseb mul tõsta ISO-t ja veel sellise suure numbri peale? Seletuseks - tänu suuremale ISO numbrile on võimalik saada uduvabasid pilte olukordades, kus ei ole valgusega kiidelda ja pildistatav ei püsi paigal (lapsed, tantsivad inimesed, ringi siblivad koerad jne). Vastutasuks tuleb piltidele juurde müra, see on selline säbruline efekt piltidel. Jätkasin artikliga ja lugesin - alati pole kõige hullem, kui pildil ongi müra, seda saab ju photoshopiga vähemaks võtta, või üldse eemaldada. Uudishimu tõstis minus aina pead.

Ma ei tea, kuidas teiega on, kuid peale seda, kui hakkasin fotograafiaga tegelema, tahaks ringi käia nii, et kaamerat ei panekski käest - kõik on ju inspireeriv ja ahvatlevalt kutsub purki püüdma. Eile, ehk siis pühapäeval oli meil plaanis maalt tagasi koju minna, nagu ikka rongiga. Minu käekott on Hermione põhjata märss, millest võib leida kõike, kuid seekord võtsin asju vähemaks ja mahutasin sinna sõbra Pentaxi. Just nimelt sel põhjusel, et proovida, kui hästi saan hakkama poolpimedas rongis oma armsate põngerjate ja Igoriga. Ja tulemused.. ohh, ma pole kunagi veel nii rahul olnud.


I've always had certain criterions when it comes to my photos. Firstly they must be clear and sharp, with bright colors, rather more than less contrast, and last - almost noise free. Wasn't a rare situation that I didn't use my pictures cause they didn't reach the level as I wanted.


I read an article from DPS how to make better photos in conditions where there is low or absolutely no light (day light). Gosh, does he really want me to raise number of ISO so high? Explanation - raising ISO mean that you can get "fog-free" photos of subjects that are moving around and there is not much light. But no good comes with bad, so if you remove the blur with high ISO, there will be more noise on photos. Still not convinced I continued reading - it's not always the worst thing to have noise, atleast you can remove it all or most of it with photoshop. And the curiosity in me grew more..:)


I don't know how it is with you, but since I started practising photography, all I want to do is take pictures everywhere and have camera constantly by my side. Yesterday was the day to go back home with train and this time I added camera to my handbag to try out what I read before. I took out some lipsticks and voila, there was enough space for dear Pentax! Now all was left with was to see how well I will do in low light conditions and with my two adorable kids and Igor. And the results.. well I have never been so satisfied before. :)

















Ma tavaliselt ei lisa blogisse miljon pilti korraga, kuid mul oli seekord nii raske valida - mulle lihtsalt meeldisid kõik! Pean tunnistama, et mul läheb nüüd raskeks, sest ma olen lootusetult armunud ja mingeid klantsi pilte ei tahakski enam teha, kuid nagu kõikide eriliste piltidega on, siis nad vajavad erilisi tingimusi, õiget silma valgusele ja kiiret reaktsiooni (ma põhimõtteliselt istusin terve tee nina vastu kaamerat). Ju siis oli meie rongisõit selline eriline hetk, mil kõik see õige tuli korraga kokku. Uurin ka teie käest - kas tunnete piltidel sellist mõnusat soojust ja äratundmist, nagu kohtuks vana hea sõbraga? Usually I don't add million of photos to blog in one post, but this time it was so hard to choose - I just liked all of them so much! I must admit it will be hard from now on, cause I don't want to do nice and neat photos, but more special like what I uploaded today. But as with all special pictures, is that they need special conditions, good eye for right light and fast reaction (I was basically sitting nose to camera the whole ride). I quess train ride was a perfect moment when all good things gathered up. Now I am going to ask you - can you also see the warm feeling and moment of recognition on photos, just like you were meeting an old friend?
