    I agree about the rules of photography not applying to home shots. With family shots, who even cares if it's in focus if there is a memory captured?

    That kicks major arse.

    Did you notice the little strand of spider web that's caught between its beak and its forehead??
    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

    I just got the overpriced wire that makes it so the pocket wizards can remote trigger the camera like it does the flashes (like they do when they put the camera inside the hockey nets). To try it out I set the camera right in front of the hummingbird feeder with the 17-55 lens and a corded flash off to the side to give that cool shadow running down the left side of the bird. I pop open a beer and sit in the garage and when the bird shows up I fire away. All the settings are manual so I have to focus on my hand and then wait till the bird hits that spot to get it in focus. There are a lot of frames with blur or nothing or a wing etc, but when it works, it looks bitchen.

    The fastest sync speed with a flash is 250th so there is gonna be some blur on the wings. I used that tupperware looking thing over the flash to soften it a bit.

    Default I come to you guys with questions...

    Hello, LGK community! I was wondering if I could ask you a couple photography questions?

    I am heading to San Francisco to visit my sister on Friday and wanted to try and capture a couple pictures while I was there. The two that I have in mind are the Golden Gate Bridge and the Palace of Fine Arts. I chose these two because they are walking distance from my sisters and I probably won't have too much time. I've really been into night photography lately. Something about it just really captures my attention. My flight doesn't arrive until 8:30 on Friday night and I probably won't get to my sisters until around 9:30. First...here is what I'm going for:

    GGB:
    Photographer's Guide to the Golden Gate Bridge - a knol by Andy Frazer

    The closest point to her house is Fort Point. It looks like a really snazzy picture. What settings do you think would be best for a night shot? At the Queen Mary...the picture I posted a few posts back, I was putting my settings on F14ish, ISO 200-400 and the exposure was around 5-6 seconds. Messing with the WB worked wonders.

    POFA:
    POFA (Palace of Fine Arts) on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    This is right across the street from her apartment. Any suggestions? I'd like to capture that exact picture, if possible! It says F8 at ISO 200...at 25 seconds. That sound about right?

    I'll have my tripod and my remote shutter release to help me out...but any tips you could give me would be excellent. I've been waiting a long time to take some good pictures around there. I'm not sure what my sister has planned for us so I don't want to spend too much time out shooting photos...so I'm trying to prepare ahead of time.

    My equipment:
    Canon Digital Rebel Xsi
    Kit Lens (EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens)
    Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lens
    Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS Telephoto Zoom Lens


    Thanks in advance. If you want to keep it off the boards...just PM me.
