Done with 15 LED lights. DIY and connect them with a wire powered by two AA batteries. Really hard to get a proper light sphere. Need some practice. laugh.gif

Took us almost an hour to get a few proper light balls. sweat.gif
Next time you spin la icon_idea.gif

"Pro" take photo, "noob" spin laugh.gif laugh.gif
I wonder whether there are easier ways to get better spheres hmm.gif

True that man, its near perfect apart from the focus breathing "issue". Now that the new one doesn't have focus breathing, I guess it might actually be perfect liao haha laugh.gif

use raw format lol for more editing room  laugh.gif

i don't know about histogram thingy... maybe just your subject have extreme harsh lighting which is lead your histogram lean to 1 side??

eg: 12pm noon, direct strong sun light?? unsure.gif

happened on me a lot in trip which is you only been the place once but the timing is freaking afternoon and not friendly for shooting... but you outta shoot anyways or else you won't been same place again  sweat.gif
----------------------
edited: read back your previous post... ya lah harsh sunlight adui.
got use ND filter? i heard many sifu use that for strong sunlight?  whistling.gif

yea i think gotta shoot raw fr now on.

actually not really harsh sunlight. its indoor anyway, lightsource from the window.
also under.

QUOTE(OOtaii @ Oct 10 2016, 04:03 PM)
Got sample photo? Or check ur exposure compensation. Probably "ter set" -ve compensation.
*
no exposure all 0.


anyway i researched more and come into this statement
'all photos come out underexposed. u wont notice it when reviewing it but until u brighten it u will see how much better it looks'

so yeah. shoot raw. filter them unwanted, then tweak n finetune in pc later on. then one more time filter, only publish.
no other way. haha.

so moving on... i brighten my pic easiest method is duplicate layer and change mode into 'screen'.
ok or not? or got better way? i always mess up the brightening saturation slider and also those curve n levels. unless more treatment needed can i just stick to the first method only?

No worries man, its the same with all our cameras as well icon_rolleyes.gif Under default settings, our camera will always try to make sure that the entire photo is properly exposed, so occasionally it may present you with some weird results haha laugh.gif
Based on experience, sometimes we will purposely increase/decrease exposure composition to get the anticipated results (as in your 2nd photo).

Some common situations where I will increase exposure compensation (*assumption: whole frame matrix metering):

You are most welcomed man!
I'm also learning based on trial and error haha. There are still a lot of functions that I'm not familiar with doh.gif

I've tried shooting with spot-metering before but it doesn't work for me (as in not accurate/the camera doesn't know what I want). So I usually play around more with exposure compensation, in which setting everything right will still get you the same results thumbup.gif Of course, its up to your preference at the end of the day thumbup.gif
