    Dan's Photos

    The photo info indicates that he's using a Canon 5D Mk2... just remember though, it's the artist that makes the shot, not the camera!

    Another Big Nd Buck

    Maybe because of the pile of corn?

    W200ir Pics (with Slave)

    Basic color correction is pretty easy in most graphics programs: Not perfect, but better!

    New To Video

    There's so much information on the forum from people experienced in this build, I'm having trouble finding a place to begin. I've built a few trailcams with the BG1/BG2 and some DSC-P52's. The cameras are starting to die (they were used/salvaged when I got them), so I'm looking into replacing them with video units. How do I get started? What is the recommended video camera? I'd like to have IR if possible. What boards are required? If I could re-use my BG1/BG2, that would be great but not necessary. Basically, what is currently the most popular build out? Thanks!
  5. Great photo! More hunters need to take time to set up their after-pictures so they have a nice background, show off the animal, and avoid the blood-and-guts. Congrats to your boy!
  6. Google Earth is awesome! I've also made some overlays of our plat book.
  7. I think it's a cool idea, but unless agreed to otherwise, the picture taker holds the copyright to the picture. You should secure permission (which I doubt would be much of a problem with all of the great people here), just to cover yourself.

    Hard to say for sure, but it looks like a small buck to me.
  9. I was just going to say, the muley look-alike is back!

    SW Minnesota bucks 08-04-07

    The one in the third and fourth pictures looks like it stole a rack from a mule deer.
  11. If you use a higher f-stop you should be able to minimize the distant lightning blowing out the sky. Also, I wouldn't hold the trigger down for more than 10 seconds or so for each frame.
  12. One other method for lightning - you can make or buy a remote shutter trigger for an SLR. Then you just hold down the shutter button until you see a flash, release it, and you will have the entire lightning bolt.
  13. I'm curious how this worked out. I've never seen lightning photography using a light sensor trigger.
  14. Beware of going above 200 ISO on a point and shoot camera - the image will get very noisy, possibly too noisy for professional looking print/brochure work.

    Blurred picture software

    I've never tried FocusMagic, but Noise Ninja does a great job when your images are really noisy: http://www.picturecode.com/

    Some more pics

    I used Photoshop, but something like Picasa (free from Google) should let you do some work. Basically, I set the black point, gray point, and white point in the pictures so that blacks were a deep black, whites were a bright white, and gray was a true gray. For some more basic tools, I think simply increasing the contrast of the picture would help a lot. I also increased the color saturation a little bit. Teleconverters (as well as making you loose a few stops and some sharpness), rob you of contrast and saturation.

    Some more pics

    I ordered a 2x teleconverter for my Sigma 70-200 2.8, so I'll be trying my hand at bird photography myself pretty soon. 200mm just isn't enough reach for little critters, I'm hoping 400mm makes it easier!

    Some more pics

    Nice images! They could benefit from a little bit of post processing I think. I hope you don't mind, I did a little quick and dirty leveling!

    For the birds

    I have a Canon Rebel XTi with a Sigma 70-200. Hopefully I'll be getting a 2x teleconverter fairly soon. I'll be in the market for a monopod when that happens, I've been looking at this one: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller...oughType=search I'm going to set up a blind near a feeder this fall to get a few pictures of the bucks we have in the neighborhood.

    digital SLR question

    Any Canon EF lens is compatible with any Canon EF body.

    Samsung A503 IR w/ Viv 2800 Slave

    Those are excellent pictures, easily enhanced with Photoshop to pull detail out of the shadows!
  22. My father in law spooked this guy into running right towards me as we were getting down from our stands on closing night. He's a nice 11 point, I think I'm going to get him mounted!

    Trail counter?

    I was wondering if anyone had made something like a "trail counter". I only have two camera setups, so if there was a way to make a cheap device that would count the number of pics that it "would" have gotten, I would know the best spots to put the cameras. Any ideas would be great!

    new digital flash

    Maybe a flash like this would work?

    Dark LCD

    Maybe the LCD backlight is broken or disconnected somehow?
