    This one is completely manual. It either flies, or it don't. Either way, you know I'll make the best of it;) I got plenty of time now to play around and see what works, if at all.

    Totally different method actually. The backdrop was originally black plastic but it looked horrible. Lighting was just outside in diffused sunlight, light cloud.
    When I looked at it I could tell the arrangement and colours were good but the backdrop looked pretty awful, so ... I spent about 3 hours with Photoshop, turning all the background into total black. I had to go pixel by pixel around the edges, using very high magnification. I nearly gave up before it was finished.
    I'm going to see if I can buy some black velvet!

    Seems to me it would be best for video mode! Good idea.

    nvthis,

    What was the thing to start with? A picture doesn't help me to know what to look for in a catalog or what to ask the counterman for.

    Make, model and source would be very helpful too.

    It looks like a great idea for axillary lighting. What is the light like, day light, cool white, warm white or what?

    Thanks man.

    Great smoking.

    It was a cheap led light that had magnets on the back so you could stick it to the underneath side of the hood of a vehicle (for light when working under the hood). The only thing on the case was the word 'Skil'. I have since discarded the entire thing except for the bulbs. It was at Kragen at the front counter. Sorry for the limited info bro, but that should get you on your way;)

    nvthis,

    Thanks. I'm not surprised that you couldn't find information on it at Kragen.

    Great smoking.

    Well, I've been avoiding this thread because I wanted to learn so much, and the camera I have doesn't work for me with limited vision and in the wheelchair. I need a camera with a moveable LED screen.

    I just found out that Sears still does old fashioned LAYAWAY, and they carry what looks like a terrific camera for me--a Canon SX20 IS. It has the swivel screen, and is 12.1 megapixels and 20X zoom. $50 down and $80 every other week. I can handle that!

    So with renewed enthusiasm, I just wanted to ask all the successful camera folks here if anyone has ever used this camera and if you like it?

    It's $400, and that's my HID, but on layaway, it's doable. Though I need the HID, the hydro store doesn't do layaway so it must be camera time!

    LOVE this thread so much, and can't wait to catch up! I have the whole thread printed out and ready to study and try hard once I get my new camera.

    Leafminer, what a story about the plastic backdrop and having to spend hours in photoshop pixel by pixel making it work! I hope you have found your black velvet. But wow, the results you got were sure worth the time spent. That is one lovely, gorgeous, delicious shot!

    NVThis, thank you so much for this thread. It's fantastic and loaded with so much terrific information.

    Hey nvthis thanks for inviteing me to this thread i used picasa 3 as i do in all my pics
    first of i used chop to get the pic i wanted to start with also sharpen in the effects then i change it to B&W and played with the film grain and finaly soft focus and after atleast 1 hour of playing i ended up with the shot alot of the time i just snap and post in my GJ but this pic and the invite to your thread has gave me a confidence boost so you may see more of me around here well not me :D my pics
    i think this pic work well b/c it central and the soft focus seems to make the bud stand out my eyes dont stray around the pic there just beemed in on the middle hope you guys enjoy the pic as much as i do :)
