    Guys,

    Remember that template from a few weeks ago to make up the freight containers? Well I made some up and sat them on 50' flat cars.

    Oh.... and the pics are taken with my new toy!! :D :D

    First go though. Just pushed the "macro" button, set it at .3 pixelly things (will go up to 3.2 megathingys), set it to auto everything and "click".

    Lighting? Just an ordinary light globe in the ceiling, and sat them on the freezer lid, and used the wall behind it.:eek:

    Woodie, your camera really makes good, sharp pics. What type of camera is it? (I'm looking around for one, too... :rolleyes: )

    And those containers look just great. What a sight when you'll run a whole train of these down the Garahbara Line II. :) :) :)

    ... and they're off behind NSWGR 42220... Where to, I have no idea, except off the edge of the freezer lid, and onto the floor!:eek:

    Ron,

    Its a Fujifilm S304. Does up to 3.2 megapixels, 6 X optical zoom, macro function, and can overide a few settings. Specially the aperture, which you need for "depth of field" (things really close in focus, as well as things far away).

    The last one could do with a bit of "depth of field" sorted out.

    It does movies (with sound) as well. (30 secs on high resolution)

    The "auto everything" I did above made it do a shutter speed of 1/2 sec. (not enough light).

    These things don't take to long to get used to.

    Just used the "apperture overide" on "macro" to get the "depth of field":eek: :rolleyes: :cool:

    Wow, this depth of field is fantastic! The camera I 'borrow' in my school and use from time to time simply can't override anything. It just makes pictures - period. It's a little better when I use the flash, but without... :(

    May I ask about the price category of your camera? :rolleyes:

    Ron

    PS: Oh, I almost forgot - this is really a sharp (;))looking train! DON'T drive it over the edge!

    BTW.... if anyone wants a copy of the templates for those containers, let me know. They are resized for HO. Just need to print 'em off. :)

    Getting better. :)

    Using Microsoft Photodraw set the "balance and hue" to "auto", and sharpened it +5.

    That's fantastic woodie! How many years you been at this? hehehe Amazing results. You got that seamless background that the pros get in the studio. Now all you need is some photo software that lets you do croppng and a little magic. Hope you don't mind I had a go at it and cropped it down for you and extended the tracka little. Great photography mate!!!
