Website with good information for beginners!
I've made a new website last week! The english written lanquage is not my strongest side - please excuse! I hope you like the website - it's much better than before I think!

Good website! Your English is not that bad at all!
Mine isn't that perfect either. I'm from Holland.

I really learned a few things from your website!
But what I would really like is that you add some specifications to the pictures you have placed on that site. Like shuttertime, DOF and so on.

Another thing you might be able to learn us is lenses. For example:


38-115mm in 35mm format
What the *peep* does that mean?

Your english is just fine klaus. :)

Trust me, I know Americans that can't write english that well...

Thanks Shoshone.

The 38-115mm in 35 mm format. If you read the lens specifications on a compact digicam it often says something like 7-21mm or whatever. Compared to at 35mm kamera (normal film kamera) it would be the same focallengh af 38-115mm - this way you can better compare. I might do a paragraph on that soon.

Thank for the tip with specs. under the pics. Good idea.

Thanks MacLeod!

Error I Think
Very useful Klaus like it.

Am just reading the section on apertures and shutter speed and you state that DOF increases with longer focal lenghts , unless my memory is failing (possible, it's not great at the best of times) it should be the other way round - Decreases with longer lenghts and increases with shorter focal lengths.

Interesting. In researching my answer, the only site that I found backs what you said:


Depth of field is greater for short focal lengths than for long ones. This difference is quite dramatic.
I really thought that wasn't true. I thought that was the reason why focusing when doing macro pictures was so hard. The DOF is only a fraction of an inch across (less than 1cm, for those in the saner parts of the world)

Good site. I like the scrolling banner of pictures... draws me into the your work and shows me a quick sampling of what you've done. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to select a picture to enlarge. The hyper link goes to "http:///"

Thanks for looking by.

You're right about the should have been decreases as the example below shows. 300mm decreases DOF. It's corrected by now! So is the scrolling banner. Just click it.
thanks very much for your observation! I mean it.

You're very welcome Klaus, My pleasure.

Like the site

Klaus. Love your new site. Very helpful. :) Particularly appreciate the series of editing changes to your city scene. Never seen it done so subtly or well described before.

You have encouraged me to yet again tackle an out of focus pic of my brothers, one of who died in a car accident a while back. It is the last photo of all my brothers together before he died.

If I can bring up this picture as a birthday present for my mum I'll owe you a lot. In fact if it works I'll bet @ 80 she will buy a computer & start editing her own pix too. :D

Thanks Susie
