Would totally be down with a SP2.0. There are a lot of concepts I didnt get to really work with bouncing around my head. We might benefit from dual sets as well.

I dunno if it has to do with the screen. I've my CRT calibrated (roughly, using Adobe Gamma) and tuned for proper brightness and contrast. I know LCDs have a habit of being a bit o the bright side (they're tricky to calibrate too). But the noise appeared really low, especially for that high of an ISO.

As for pushing my 300d, that was done through photoshop, specifically the RAW convertor. It will let you push or pull up to 4 stops, but it isn't pretty. FYI: If you're not interested in sharp and clear, then this works just fine. Far better to shoot at proper exposure for clean images though.

The banding that shows up on mine is only at high iso and when I push stops. Also, it tends to happen at different levels with different colors, which leads me to believe that this is some type of (electronic) reciprocity failure. Being CMOS and CCDs alike cannot differentiate color, and are passed through a Bayer filter, I wonder if this has to do with both of them. But then, why band and not stay even across the whole frame? Hmmm. Dunno.

Anyhow, I haven't noticed any image degradation over time and only shows up under extreme software conditions, so I don't think the chip is bad. Besides, the warranty is probably out anyhow (got it in spring of 2005). Rather than mess with the chip, I'd be better going to a better camera altogether, like a 5D (wish list!).

All the images so far are great! I am all for another steampunk theme. I really want to put together a costume - I was very inspired by everyone's awesome outfits. Smile

Steampunk Pixie

The overall effect of putting a light inside the lantern was pretty cool. Might be something to approach with some planning for another round.

Very half-formed thought coming out of the "light inside of something" concept - it's telling me it makes for the potential of some interesting environments, if lights can be all the more inside of things... hm, can't say this clearly yet. If a light is just behind something, it can entail working angles carefully to make sure to avoid seeing that light, behind a model, or from the "open" side of something it's behind. If there were a few lights inside of objects in an environment, it lends to giving a wider range of motion inside a larger set, as the model interacts with several lit areas. And of course the lantern is a light carried right with the model.

Drawbacks too... model moving closer and further from lights - I think what I'm seeing is that there could almost be a street type environment containing lighting as part of its environment, where normally that kind of setting wouldn't have enough light for good photography. Yet the environment could be very open, without a bunch of lights and stands in the way, because the lights are inside of things.

Like I said. Unclear on quite the application, but I'm seeing potential for more application of this, anyone follow?

I captured this candid of Wendy and Henry during the open house and the contrast created by the red wall, white reflector and Wendy's hair turned out to be nice (I think)...

Well, hey, I appreciate the tips. I'll probably just decide to live with it. You're right; at ISO3200, it does a remarkable job.

Sorry it took me so long to get these up, but as it was obvious on Saturday I was a bit under the weather as they say.
Here are some of Pixie that I got while no one was looking.

Those are some fun images Leeland.

Here are a couple I was just playing around with.

However, for some strange reason I did not get any (except for a couple wide angle candids) with the theme set L()L.

I LOVE the butterfly one - it really seems to stand as a finished piece.
