Nice shots. what do you mean by "mirror"? Is that a technique or equipment and how does it work? I am not familiar with it.

seemolf Nov 9, 2005 6:02 PM

sorry,
it is a technique!
We are all supposed to buy a FZ30, because we have no twistable LCD!
But in the meanwhile (still counting money) a simple mirror helps, if our camera stays on grass level. I heard of this trick by fred - fmoore.
Hold a cosmetic mirror close to the lcd in an angle of 45 degree, enjoy the view (upside down) and your clean trousers. Happy germans will of course lie down and enjoy a mud adventure.

More wonderful shroom shots, Sven! :cool:You mustresidenot far from the Shangri-laof Shrooms. Isn't that first one apurplediliushazilium?:? This looks like more of a deershit area vs dogshit. Is that the reason for the tripod? Very nicely done!

Hi Fred,
i don't know the IDs and I will not touch these fellows!
They are very small, I hoped to find bigger ones.
But the FZ5 finds its objects from 3cm onwards.
There was no sh.. around, but I am still happy that my clothes are quite clean.
Sven

But I have learned in a german forum that we are too kind!
So please start to criticise!

Thanks. I got it. Yes, it was a step back for me coming from the Canon Powershot G5 with the swivel screen to the Panasonic FZ20's fixed LCD, but then again it had a lot of other advantages in regards to shooting performance and of course zoom. Being a transplant from Germany I certainly would not mind the mud adventure either.

The backgrounds on #1 and #3 are very good. The rest are missing that extra dimension. Are these cropped at all? If not, consider backing off a bit and utilizing cropping to get some more action. Of cousre, that's going to change the angle which could be detrimental. For the most part, the color and lighting are very good. If you can, without causing too much disruption, remove some of the sticks and twigs before taking the shot. Most of these shots are excellent quality. Getting just the right composition is often a matter of luck. It comes down to taking lots of shots and choosing/manipulating thestellar one(s) (if any).

thanks Fred - very appreciated!

The pictures are not cropped. Using your mirror helped me to get too close? I wanted "portraits", backing off will give more action!

The extra dimension is nice, but the "extra light" destroyed several shoots...

I have removed many leaves and sticks, but I could have done more...

But I was quite happy to get these shots in one session.

Sven

...next time will be better (I hope so)

Hi rduve,

Wow, that looks like fun. My three boys would have a ball. Where are you from in Germany? I am from Stade.
