for moon shots, try the f11 rule: set aperture to f11 and then set the ISO and shutter speed to match (e.g. ISO 200 and 1/200th) (it doesn't always work mind!)Just got hold of a Sigma 18-250 HSM OS Macro etc. lens for my Nikon D5000 after reading all the reviews, and sold the kit 18-55 and 55-200 to make the £££ back.
Also a 35mm Nikon F1.8 prime for low light stuff.
I think the reviews were pretty accurate as the Sigma seems even better than either of the other two.
First, a shot of the moon, bearing in mind shot hand held at 250mm, ISO 400, 1/80, f6.3 ...
... followed by a closeup of a butterfly on our Buddleia bush, ISO 400, 1/1000 at f6.3
Comments always welcome.
Sure, keep in mind these were not photoshopped. Just exposure and minor color adjustments done in Lightroom 5. Actually glad you asked, so many people ask what is better, Aperture, Photos(speculatively) or Lightroom. This is a great way to show it power and functionality.Can we see the before photoshop pic?
Good info Nick..for moon shots, try the f11 rule: set aperture to f11 and then set the ISO and shutter speed to match (e.g. ISO 200 and 1/200th) (it doesn't always work mind!)
there's a super moon tonight as well
I have a small collection of cameras and lens.Oh yes, you have both really helped me, thanks
I've only been a DSLR user for 6 months or so and have a lot to learn.
I shall take on board your comments about Lightroom, and it's nice to know you have the Sigma as well.
That is a great lens. I keep it on my Canon 600D, its not as good a pro glass, but no lens is with that zoom range. But its better then most kits lens and has a larger zoom range. So its one I highly recommend.Just got hold of a Sigma 18-250 HSM OS Macro etc. lens for my Nikon D5000........
