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

50mm F1.8? You can do a lot with the nifty fifty, including macro thumbup.gif
For me I guess its best for portraits because of the awesome separation and bokeh wub.gif

Awesome bokeh....very true for the 50mm F1.8. It was always on the camera body.

But can do macro meh ? Can't come too close...wont' focus.

Yeah, most people would ditch their 18-55mm kitlens after getting a taste of the 50mm F1.8 haha laugh.gif
How about shooting some Danbo?

Yaya, there are two ways to allow the 50mm F1.8 to shoot manual macro:
1. Just reverse the lens. You can get a RM20 reverse ring to hold the lens in reverse, or you could just hold using your hands haha laugh.gif

2. Add RM30 extension tubes, the farther away the lens from your sensor, the more magnification you get brows.gif

Spot metering is only useful when you want to meter a scene based on a particular small area.

I don't use spot metering for my work either, priority modes get the exposure correct most of the time anyway unless the scene is a little tricky then you adjust the other 3 parameters to suit.

Im all for film look or analog looks but recently looks like everyone is doing it. I do it on all my phone instagram pics(i blame vsco) =D. But most photos I shoot on dSlR seldom, too much effort LOL.

What do you guys think about this trend?

well this based on individual taste... i myself honestly dislike those filters..

but in terms of analog looks.. it has been a craze recently, e.g. Sony a7rii (FF analog look) just that price wise... cry.gif

depends on how u define too much effort.. i dont mind shooting with my DSLR as i carry it almost everywhere i go (whenever possible)

I still don't really know how to produce really good film-like shots haha rclxub.gif rclxub.gif But I suppose those produced manually will be way better and refined (?)
Usually I edit my photos in different ways, some contrasty, some with different color tones etc. to see which one looks the best, or perhaps which one the client fancies the most laugh.gif

well it probably is that easy ... but then again i could never achieve effects like those by VSCO. Just wanting to see what you guys feel about it.

But personally I like digital photos not trying to be analog. Unless Im shooting the FE2 then, I like analog pics.
