Re: Bhutan Trip

Very nice shots. The Buddhist himalayas is certainly a photographers paradise. I think your shots reflect its colour and the beauty. I love the shot of the old lady with the prayer wheel. One thing I would do with that shot is remove the bit of background on the far left behind her head as that bit of light draws your eye from the subject.

Re: Bhutan Trip

Beautiful pictures and great composition. I'm particularly fond of the prayer flags and donation / chime bowls... the old lady is also very "national geographic"-esque.

Thanks for sharing.

Re: Bhutan Trip

Thanks swixtwix - I am actually planning to enter the NatGeo traverler magazine competitions, though I doubt I am anywhere near the talent levels of the folks in there.

Any recommendations which one I should enter with?

Regards

Re: Bhutan Trip

I love the wide-shot shot of the little girl.

Re: Bhutan Trip

great shots, would love to take a trip there

anyways maybe I could learn something from your shot,

so the one with the little girl I believe your intention is to keep the girl in focus while blurring the background with a narrow depth of field. What if I wanted to try and get everything in focus let's say using F8/F11, where would I focus? I know about hyperfocal distance and all the technical mumbojumbo, but who's got time figure all that out when you just want to capture the moment

thanks

Re: Bhutan Trip

where would I focus

dumokun80 if you are at f11 and its a wide lens like 30mm equiv, that is a small enough aperture to just focus say at the wall behind the girl (7-8 feet away from camera), and you should get everything in focus... of course its easier to get things farther than the focus point inside the DOF, than the things closer to you, so its important to check if the girl's face is in focus (she should be approx 4 feet away) when you aim for the wall; peaking/touch magnification of the nex is a big help.

rule of thumb of APS-C is at f/11 hyperfocal all common focal lengths works like a series of fractions - 24mm lens ( 0.33 = 8ft), 30mm (0.4 = 12ft), 35mm (0.5 = 17ft), 50mm (0.75 = 37ft), 70mm (1 = 70ft), 85mm (1.2 = 106ft) rising quickly.
