  1. Here's a few photos from a late-night event (it was about 10pm) in my hometown. It was the first real test of my recently-bought-intended-workhorse-lens, (sigma 30) and it worked out really well. Focusing was absolutely fine (manyhold discrepancies with sigma's quality control) and being able to stop down to f1.4 was amazing and well-needed, and despite most of the photos being at 1.4 they seem in focus fine! (it's a lot easier to just view them on my tumblr as the sizes are better displayed there)
  2. I totally forget whenever I post on forums :x Yeah :( I miss the snow in the summer, and miss the summer when its snowy. Thanks! :) Baw :(, that is sad. I saw this one in a pet shop.
  3. Just some photography.. I haven't been about on tip.it for a while now! Hope everyone is well. Now for some good old fashion England snow (what little there is of it) And a few other randoms.. And I have a tumblr which I regularly update. You can view it here: http://hugor.tumblr.com/
  4. This is such a great guide.. I've always admired pixelling. Nice one :)
  5. - With 35mm cameras, a 50mm lens IS 50mm, as opposed to 50mm being equivalent to 85mm on a crop sensor. - Following from my first point, I would recommend getting a decent body (it doesn't really matter that much.. most are way cheaper than DSLRs, just get a pentax something or other), and just get a 50mm prime lens (fixed focal length). Keep it simple :) -As already said, developing is a bit difficult, so if you want to, find out if there are any film photography evening classes or something. -Unfortunately, it seems to be very difficult to get cheap film developing. Jessops near me costs about £8 per roll .. if you're going to do film seriously, get your film developed into negatives, and scan them yourself (you'd have to buy a film scanner.. epson V500/600/700 are apparently good) -Film is awesomely fun, and makes you really appreciate each photo -Funky colours -Get needle in middle of bracket in viewfinder
  6. mfw you used my brushes! <3 That being said, I much prefer your second version. You have to be very careful with t-shirt designs in that they should be bold and eye catching. People will look at it in the store for a few seconds, and if in those few seconds they don't know what part of the image to look at, they might just move on. You have to be very careful. :P Anyway, the vector looks great, and the only thing i'd mention is that the apostophe looks like it could be a rouge dot for the I.

    Some Piccies.

    I don't really like the first 3 as there isn't really much to look at. And I'd stay away from borders on digital, they never do it for me. I love the fourth one, but the focusing's really odd- i look straight into the centre-foreground, but it's not in focus. Also, the angle is really strange and the framing feels really close. I looove the colours.. Again, I really like the last one, but the image is just too small the appreciate it how I think it should be appreciated. :)
  8. You need to work out a way to tie each symbol/logo together. I like the first example you posted, but I think the main design should be bigger, and catch your eye more. The text should be there but maybe not so bright as to pull your focus away from your key graphic: (i couldnt really change the colour of the text cus i was just in paint) but you get the idea. I can't really say much else as I've never done logo or illustrator type stuff, but you're doing well, but I think it's just you need something to tie them all together. I'd say have your main element (i'd suggest the hand) in white, and your other two elements (zepplin/wings) around it, or behind, in a light grey colour. Then have a line (could be rope, or music staves with notes on them?) holding them all together, in a dark-grey colour.
  9. The first one's great! I like the second one too but the colours are a bit too funky for me. I think it's best to go full black or white or full colour. :)

    Some photios

    Oh.. You think it would've been better focusing on the edges of the hole in the tub? Fair enough.. many don't like black and white it seems :) I like it too, actually.. it looks quite comical, with the woman ignoring this funny little dog.
  11. Just a few more from recently:
  12. Jesus, that sounds like a lot of work. Yeah It's just a little account I started a while ago to play for fun with my girlfriend, and I thought I could maybe make a pker just for fun. Thank you so much for the info, but I'm not sure if I really like runescape as much as to play for those levels ;w;
  13. These are my stats atm: God knows why str+attack are at 10. Don't remember levelling them-- must have been a quest? Anyway, after returning from a long absence, what is the state of f2p pking? What levels are suggested? Wish I hadn't levelled up the damn prayer, but there you go.
  14. First one is cool but well.. it's a phone ;p. I like the second one, but I think the lighting could've been more effective if it were set up a bit closer maybe? I'm not really knowledgeable in studio lighting :P I like the shadow, it's shame you can't really see it much. I think the third is the best, visually. Subject is well lit, but it seems your backdrop is a bit creased on the left, making it look like the lighting is cut off. Also, I've found that you have to be very careful with your model's shadows-- i.e most of the time you don't want them :lol: I like that you've given her looking distance though (not sure if intentional). That's definitely a big tip I'd give to any photographer wanting advice; if your model/object is looking/pointing in a direction, leave space on that side. :D

    Yeah ;p oh the irony..
  16. Eh, if you two think so.. :^_^: Two more: http://hugor.tumblr.com/photo/1280/5099565500/1/tumblr_lkir7k9Xq21qaqznj http://hugor.tumblr.com/photo/1280/5099558939/1/tumblr_lkir6wMrGP1qaqznj sigh.. why can't I use extensions?
  17. First- <333 I really like this one. It's a shame the people are so dark, it took me a while to notice the right person properly :P Second- I like the effect, it's just a bit cluttered Third- Just a bit boring. And LONG too long! Where's all your height gone? :lol: Fourth- It's a bit overexposed at the top, on could do with more cropping from the left, but I like it :)

    1. I like, though the subject isn't that interesting 2. Not much to say 3. I like it, but I think it'd be better if the composition weren't so centered 4. Not much to say, again, though I think it'd work better if there were more of the trunk 5. S'cool, not much else to say :lol: 6. I really like this one, but it's a bit sharp 7. Same as 6 8. I like this most so far :) good use of rule of thirds 9. Excellent, but again a bit sharp on the eyes 10/11/12. Not much to say about these. I like 11 most. 13. <3 14. Really interesting, if a bit dark in upper right 15. Can't think of much to say on critisism 16. cool :3 These are all too sharp for me :-o
  19. Thanks! <3: And awesome! yeah I'm following you now :) Hmm, auto levels (change if it looks bad, but often It doesn't change much), add 5-10 brightness+contrast, gradient maps/photo filters sometimes, occasionally soft brushing colours on to a lighten layer. Flatten all, duplicate layer, High pass set to overlay and about 30-50%. :) I stick to those techniques pretty much every time, but change them about. Hmm, I can't say I know exactly why you'd think that; these are imo some of my best.. :-P
  20. Me too, I think. :) Thanks for the comment. Unfortunately, I've jsut noticed that the first two are really badly focused.. feh
  21. There're LOOADS more on my blog + with all the photos in hi-res: http://hugor.tumblr.com/ p.s what do you think of the layout? A few of my favourites:
  22. Awesome! Nice to see some more sprite/pixel stuff around tip.it gallery. I remember when the majority of art posted here was made in paint :P It's not exactly my field of expertise, but one thing that could improve it that extra bit is if there were more shading, particularly on the red cloak. Just making it a but darker, or using different shading techniques might help. Looks a bit flat imo. Keep it up thou :)
  23. First one is nice, but the angle/juxtapositioning of the leaves doesn't look >quite< right to me. Would look nicer if it were a little more in focus, too. :) I love the second one, definitely the best of all of them. Only thing that could've improved it is if it were more to the right. The rest are a bit so-so, though I can see what you were trying with the last one, but it doesn't look quite in focus, and there's loads of space underneath. You clearly have a good eye for things. Looking forward to seeing more :P
  24. So many more photos around at the gallery recently, it seems. It's nice :) Thought I'd add to it..
  25. The shots are technically quite good, but your white balance is pretty [bleep]ed ;p Just with auto levels, brightness/contrast, and a few high pass filters, you can see that there's a huge improvement colour wise: before: after: I also cropped it a little bit as there was a lot of open space that negated from the overall aesthetic. It's really easy to not realise how orange some photos are though XD I've done it many a time.
