Public Discussion Forum on Various Issues on Photography

Share common knowledge & exchanging experience with your views on photography. I know the original Free Trade Zone section may has some restriction imposed on its content (only Buy/Sell Stuffs), but as requests are pouring in to create another section for other subjects other than buy/disposal of equipments, so, as much as I can offer, I have used the template for other existing message boards to create another section for all of you to use. As this is a non-profitable section, so I didn't ask our programming staffs to creste a dedicated thread-like format. I am not sure if this has served its purpose but nevertheless, it is a channel for all of you to utilise to express other thoughts on photography-related issues. A few volunteers have been appointed to edit the content as it requires. You may make use of this convenience here to present your own views. Enjoy.

Just as cons like William Tan has used the FTZ as their hunting ground, there are funny traders who fake as enthusiasts "wanting to upgrade", etc. etc.

Recently, I posted an "enthusiast friendly" Buy-message in the FTZ and in it I stated my real email address and someone hacked my email account and sent me a funny mail using my email address. Apparently, he isn't enthusiast-friendly and was angry with my message. I posted another message in the FTZ to warn the offender that unless he apologises I will report the matter to the Multimedia Commission. The moderator removed my posting immediately. Waa, that's protecting the offender, I thought.

Linear Polarizer or Circular Polarizer? Reflections from a smooth surface of non-conducting materials (such as water, ceramics, plastic or glass) are linearly polarized, at an angle that depends on the surface position relative to the illuminating light. When you look at such reflections using a linear polarizer, and turn the polarizer circularly, you will see that in a certain position the reflections are maximized. 90 degrees further turning will almost make reflections disappear. This comes very handy if you are shooting a reflection in water and want to maximize it, or if you are shooting a building and want to eliminate a reflection from the glass windows. If you shoot water, instead of reflecting the blue sky and look blue, the water will look a deep green when reflection is cancelled- very interesting! Also light from a clear sky, coming from the area at about 90 degrees away from the sun is linearly polarized. If you look at the sky through a linear polarizer and turn the polarizer you will notice the darkening. This is useful for getting deeper blue or a darker sky. Light coming from nature is almost never circularly polarized, so a circular will do two things: a) it will remove most reflections from non-conducting materials, and b) it may give some weird color effects on reflections from non-conducting materiales, because that quarter-wave sheet after the linear polarizer is not \"tuned\" to the whole spectrum, it works differently with each color (because of the different wavelengths). Light reflecting from metal (for instance the aluminium in windows) or other conductors is NOT polarized so a linear polarizer (or for that matter a circular one) will not have much effect on said reflections. This is all for smooth surfaces, rough surfaces will give much less drastic effects. All polarizers take away light (around 1/2), something that TTL metering will take into account. So linear polalizer also can be use as variable ND filter. Be careful with hand held metering, especially with linears, because the exposure will depend on the linear polarizer position. For me, linears are better if I have to choose one type (I like shooting reflections off the water), although circulars are also fun. I only use linears with SLRs. Both types help in increasing color saturation. - Paul

Just to answer a few people that ask me about what is the benefit of shooting with a 500mm macro Mirror lens using the DSLR. For those Pro photographer who have used the 4 x 5 camera with tilt and swivel and very shallow depth of field to shoot portion of a products to emphasize products details. This lens will do the same tricks using the DSLR. sms 0123781198 if you own one and need to learn the tricks. - Paul
