Street Photography Part 1c

Street Photography Part 1c


I’ve got the wide angle lens on this body as i’m walking down the street. because i’m far more likely to see
something interesting and be able to grab it with the wide lens, than to faff around and zoom in with a a long lens. but here’s something which is usually
pretty interesting isn’t it we all kind of go for shots of colorful fruit and veg and stuff on the market. i quite like this stuff, i just need to ask the man if it’s okay. hi mate, do you mind if i take a few shots of your fruits and veg, is that alright? yeah. who’s the boss? are you the boss? yes, hello my dear, do you mind if we take a few shots of your fruits and veg and stuff, what is that for then? we run, and shoot little films teaching people to use there cameras and that sort of thing. everybody want’s to take nice pictures down the market. okay, well as long as when i get a few customers, don’t block them out, nah, nah i won’t get in your way of customers at all. that’s very kind of you. she’s a nice lady. well the first thing i like is, well isn’t it weird the first thing about market shops fruit and veg traders all have signs like that, i don’t know why, it doesn’t matter who you are or in which country anywhere in the world in any city or any town they always look like that, i don’t know why. i don’t know, it must be some kind of deep psychological thing. Look at that. we have the pink grapefruit cut in half. now i expect when it was first cut i half it looked lovely, i expect it was all, bright and vibrant and gorgeous, it’s not quite so good now but none the less i still think there’s a shot to be had here, with the grapefruit sign above it. wide lens again, i’m going for the, wide lens, i don’t know why, i don’t know i just am. because i wan’t to try and get close to the grapefruit, yeah that’s going to work i want to get very close to the fruit, i want the feeling that you’re almost in the box with the fruit. i like this halved grapefruit, because it i dunno kind of breaks up the grapefruit. i like the market trader sign. and i like the building in the background, and of the canopy, because this bit of canopy really really says market. also right now, we’ve got clouds in the sky if the sun was out and it was a bright sky, that would just burn into white, but at the moment i think they’ll be some detail in the sky too. so bright sunshine isn’t always the best let’s just get in close here, ow there’s even a strip of street light going on over there. so let’s get in close, and focus on the cut fruit, here we go. adjust and just squeeze that. i want to get a different angle on it. i’m going to zoom my lens only a bit. it’s not working, that’s better. so i’m focusing on the cut fruit. I’ve zoomed it in only very slightly, from ten to about thirteen millimeters. focus on the cut fruit, and and i’m tilting the camera slightly, and I’ve got the pink grapefruit three for one pound going on in the background. i quite like that. i think that’s okay, that’s cool. now then sorry i’m very tempted to say melons, aha can’t help myself i’m such a kid. but let’s have a look at your melons dear. now then. what does this look like at the moment I’ve got, ordinary people in my shot, have a look. there’s janey with the camera, now let’s see, janey can you go that way a bit. i’m going to have a look along the stall. That’s quite cool, melons one pound. people walking up the street. here we go, there’s a little bit of street photography going on. now look at that, now as i took that last shot, and i had to do it very quickly i focused on the melons I’ve just got a bit of the sign there, but not as much as i wanted the reason i did it quickly was i liked the two guys walking up the street. i wanted to put them i the opposite corner of the picture to the fruit. this is were you’ve gotta kind of have eyes everywhere, and you’ve gotta move quickly. this is why aperture priority semi-auto mode works so so well and you don’t want to have to be thinking about is my shutter speed going to be fast enough so use a faster ISO in the first place. so kind of worked. i really really like these kind of clementine oranges. and we’ve got a guy being served, that’s really cool. so i’m talking quietly because i don’t want the to over hear me. uh… look at that, look at that. large clementines. cool. really really nice isn’t it aw nice. ca i take a picture of your carrots my dear? you may take a picture of the carrots. thank you right, i like that, i do like that. sorry i’m going to use the wide angled lens. look at that. i love that. oh look. how much more market-y could this get? than that. i’m going to have another go, ow i knocked her stall there. look at that, let’s get real close. i want them i’m gonna get real close to
the carrots. ah, if i can just focus. it’s difficult to focus there we go we’ve got a focus. choice carrots. look at that. how market-y is that for a still life? it’s cool isn’t it? and it’s so easy, and how nice people are. it’s not like these are people who have met me loads of times. but if you come back each week to the market and talk to the traders, and get people used to seeing you, their going to be really really cool about letting you take some pictures. do you mind if i just go round the other side? no that’s fine you’re very kind, thank you. the labels will be the wrong way. but i’m being sneaky actually because i just like looking across them from this angle like that. because it’s a real market-y sort of a shot i like the colours too. let’s just tilt this that way, look at that. they’re nice. yeah, i quite like that you see, that’s quite a nice wide angle very much on the market shot. the preserves a really really strong in
the foreground leading it up to the guy in the corner. So let’s just analysis this composition, because i need to make sure i tell you things not just let you watch me do things. I set the shot up ten mill lens, very very wide i’m still working at, no i’m not i’m working at a four point five, i must have knocked it by accident, i was hoping i’d get a great depth of field. but with that lens it shouldn’t be an issue. very in close so the so that the left hand corner of the picture has got jams and preserves very very strong but i compose it by moving the camera very slowly so that the guy who runs the stall is in the right hand corner. so we’ve got a bit of a dynamic going on these jams and preserves going to the man in the corner. there’s quite a diagonal dynamic going on there. i’m still shooting aperture priority i’m letting the camera deal with the
exposure i’m keeping my iso high. Then hopefully, seeing what’s been going on here is giving you an insight into how easy it can be to do a bit of street photography. the big thing is you have to own, there’s a kind of thing in your head it’s a mental space you have to be happy to just talk to people, ask them things be up front be straight about it, if you start being sneaky and kind of going, like that and think oh my god there watching, then they’re going to think what’s that bloke up to. so there we go, we’re gonna come back again and we’re going to look at photographing with the traders rather more than photographing their products. Get out there with your camera, have a play with this, go and take some still life’s on some markets and post them to our Facebook page, we’d love to see them.

Medium Format Digital vs. 35mm DSLR Cameras – Which is better?

Medium Format Digital vs. 35mm DSLR Cameras – Which is better?


Hello guys Josh Geiger here. Product
photographer from Atlanta and instructor at photigy.com. Today we’re going to talk
about two types of cameras, 35 millimeter DSLR and medium format DSLR I like most
of you started out on a 35-millimeter system and its really all we’ll ever
need for the majority of our work but sometimes we find ourselves in a
situation where we need to upgrade or we’re looking to upgrade down the road
and when you start talking about systems like this you’re looking at big money
and it’s a good idea to have a little bit more information before diving
straight in when I was looking around online for more information about medium
format systems I found the basic information kind of hard to find if you
root around deep enough you can find you know a whole bunch of technical
information but I was really just want to start at the beginning the basics and
that’s kind of what we’re going to do today we’re going to break down each
camera system to their main parts talk a little bit about them and then we’re
going to dive a little bit deeper and do a pros and cons comparison we’re going
to look at some of the benefits of each system some of the negatives of each
system obviously it cost comparison maybe a little bit of photo comparisons
and you might be surprised at what you don’t get for fifteen to thirty thousand
dollars let’s check these out first we’re going to start with the 35
millimeter system that we’re all pretty familiar with but for those of you who
don’t know everything about these and we’re not going to go over everything we
are going to dive a little bit deeper and break this down so let’s go ahead
and do that alright so here we have a nikon d700 this belongs to a buddy of
mine i’m currently using my d800 making this video so it still gets plenty of
use this is a 12.1 megapixel camera it shoots like five to eight frames per
second and it’s a full-frame camera meaning that it’s chip is the same size
as a full piece of 35 millimeter film but that’s not all there is to this
camera so let’s take a deeper look inside okay
so looking at the 35 millimeter DSLR it’s pretty simple we have two main
parts here the body and the lens I’ll remove this lens cap real quick and a
lens hood and we see our front element our rear element and inside of this lens
we have aperture blades that open and close to varying amounts allowing more
or less light in which is actually referred to as your f-stop obviously the
more that is closed down the less light will come in the more open it is more
light will obviously come in looking at the body you can see inside here there’s
a mirror that mirror actually reflects the image up into the viewfinder behind
that mirror is the shutter curtain and the sensor when you press the shutter
button the mirror flips up the curtain does its thing in the sensors exposed
looking at the back we have our LCD screen which on the majority of new
DSLRs is really great our regular controls for the different functions
which will of course vary depending on the body that you have whether it’s
Nikon or Canon or any other brand that’s pretty simple LCD on the top for just
viewing more information and that’s the basics this camera actually happens to
have a pop-up flash most do and of course slots for memory cards and here
our battery slot very simple hasn’t changed much in a pretty long time with
the exception of maybe you know software options
and that’s it moving on from this we’re going to take a look at the medium
format system okay so now that we’ve seen the 35 millimeter system we’re
going to do the same thing to this here we have a medium format DSLR the body is
a mamiya 645 DF they also make a DF + and you’ll notice too that you see
cameras that look just like this thats a phase one on them phase one I believe
purchased mamaya leaf and so they produce the same bodies with you know
the different name on them I think now they might actually all be phase one but
it’s the same camera here we have the digital bag this is a leaf aptus to 10
it’s 56 megapixels and the chip in this is a little bit wider format then is
typically found in other medium format digital bags also you’ll notice that the
battery on this is external on newer backs a lot of the batteries are
internal which is kind of nice and it also helps with some weather proofing
I’m not sure I think they have some weather proofing digital bags not
positive anyway that said let’s take a deeper look inside this what I’m going
to do first is just go ahead and break these pieces down and then we’ll talk
about them individually so getting started I have here a really right stuff
L bracket on here so I’ll remove that and then I’ll remove the battery so we
can just set this down flat make it easier to deal with if I can manage to
get this piece on here oh that would help wouldn’t it okay so first let’s
take off the lens it’s a little bit different than we’re used to on the 35
millimeter systems normally you’d have a button on either side of the lens that
you would press and rotate the lens off here the button is actually over here
which is actually kind of dangerous because I’m always afraid I’m going to
hit that which is partially do I keep that L bracket on here it kind
of blocks that but anyway moving on let’s take that off for a second and put
the cap on and then our body we will remove our digital back and I’m just
going to put the cap on that real quick while we talk about some other stuff I’m
just a little protective of that to keep the chip clean so looking at this body
obviously it’s bigger than the 35 millimeter body but the first thing we
notice is we can see straight through it it does still have a mirror in here and
actually a focusing screen but when you take off the back it automatically flips
up it really works just like a regular 35 millimeter DSLR the only real
difference is the chip comes off the back there is a shutter in here it just
so happens that this lens is a mamaya sec or d schneider leaf shutter lens and
what that means is is unlike the 35 millimeter lens this not only has
aperture blades it also has its own built-in shutter which has its own
blades they call Leafs and the benefit to this really is just that you get very
high sync speeds on this it actually sinks up to 116 hundredth of a second
which can be quite handy in a myriad of situations but setting that aside again
with the rest of this body we have our LCD screen our control knob
your regular array of scroll wheels and doodads for changing your different
options and then actually i’ll move this over here here we have our digital bag
this is pretty cool because it’s basically a little computer what we have
here is our normal LCD screen on the back which as I said we’ll talk more
about in the pros and cons it is a touchscreen LCD this particular back is
a firewire tethered support back some of them will do USB 3 even some of the
newer ones you’ll get Wi-Fi support for tethering which is really nice but we’re
moving that if we put the battery back on you can see we have an external
battery some of the new digital backs have the bit battery um built in which
is kind of nice it just reduces a little bit of the bulkiness and then let’s just
take a look at this chip for a second look at the size of that bad boy typically a full frame medium format
chip is going to be twice the size of a 35-millimeter chip and without getting
too specific into technicalities here basically what that means is larger
depth of field more sharpness and all-around image goodness but breaking
them down they’re really pretty similar to the 35 millimeter systems biggest
difference being this little computer pops off the back and is incredibly
expensive so I guess now we’ll get into the meat of this situation which would
be the pros and cons where’s one beat the other and let’s do that now okay so
now that we’ve broken down both of these systems and taking a look at their main
parts we’re going to do a little pros and cons comparison let’s start with the
35 millimeter system first it’s got an accurate auto focus it’s fast it’s
accurate there are tons of auto focus points on the majority of these DSLRs
and having the ability to fly around the viewfinder with your selection wheel and
just pick a specific thing that you want to focus on is a real big help
especially if you’re looking through the viewfinder it’s sometimes hard to see
and check focus visually so the electronic focus check is pretty much
imperative if you’re not tethered to something with live view also is OS in
these cameras because of the chip they use the iso range is incredible most of
them come around standard or native a hundred ISO and go upwards of you know
6400 and then ridiculous numbers above that high one high 2 & 2 just crazy
numbers I normally wouldn’t go above 1600 iso I just happen to like it’s
clean of images as possible I know some people like noise especially in black
and white photography but needless to say the ISO ranges in here
are great and you can get some really clean photos with iso s in the four six
eight hundred range and that’s real beneficial in low-light conditions also
the capture rate another benefit to the chips and knees is that they can capture
images faster like I said this camera i think will do five frames or so some of
the higher-end cameras will go upwards of 10 or 11 frames a second which is
just so fast rear displays on these cameras talking about our LCD they’re
great they’re bright they produce color nicely which leads us into the other
thing is that a lot of these you can do video and having a nice screen that’s
got a high resolution is good to have when you’re doing video work easy access
to controls there’s tons of buttons on these cameras everything’s pretty much
right at your fingertips that’s really nice not having to dive down into menus
and select around and find what you’re looking for and make your adjustment it
just speeds up the workflow quite a bit weatherproofing most DSLRs are going to
have some degree of weather proofing I wouldn’t soak them in a tub or anything
like that but I’ve seen plenty of instances where in a light drizzle or
something you don’t really have to worry about it I’ve seen other instances where
somebody left their camera outside in a storm and it was just soaking wet and it
survived I wouldn’t suggest that but I’ve seen it done and they’re not too
expensive for what you get you know you can get upwards of probably seven or
eight thousand dollars on a high-end DSLR body and 35 millimeter format but
really for somewhere between you know one and three thousand dollars you can
get a really nice camera it’ll do pretty much anything you needed
to do and there’s tons of lenses available form a lot of manufacturers a
lot of specialty lenses macro lenses tilt-shift lens is really that kind of
boils down to the markets just so much larger you know when there’s a lot of
people out there with these cameras that’s a lot more customers out there
for companies to create products for I guess that kind of brings us to the
negatives the downsides I don’t really consider it a downside but when you’re
comparing it to a medium format system you could say image quality nowadays the
images you get out of these 35 millimeter systems are incredible but
you do get a little bit more out of a medium format camera they’re difficult
to clean as we saw earlier when you break one of these down and you look
inside you know if you want to clean the sensor you got to lock the mirror up and
then get a light so you can see what you’re doing down there and you know
special tools and there’s oil in there for the mirror to flip up and stuff and
you don’t want to touch anything and smear oil inside and it’s just really
kind of a hassle to get in there and most people actually suggest you just
have them done professionally I’d call that a downside and I guess probably
least of the worries is if you’re dealing with high-end clients or
something like that they’re just not that impressive you know a camera’s a
camera is a camera but if you’re dealing with a client it’s used to walking in
and seeing somebody using you know either large-format cameras or medium
format DSLRs and they come in and they see a 35-millimeter DSLR it doesn’t mean
you can’t do the job right or produce images they want necessarily but it
might make them feel not as comfortable as they were when they originally hired
you for the job but I wouldn’t let that hold you back that’s not reason enough
to upgrade to a medium format system that said I think that’s probably all
the cons that I could come up with on these things they’re just great little
cameras wonderful and I guess we’ll move on to
breaking down the medium format let’s go okay so now we’re going to do the same
thing with the medium format DSLR first the pros I would think that the first
pro that I have with this is if you’re going to work a system like this you
have to have a digital back and by having the digital back you have more
versatility because one thing that we know is you can take the digital back
off and put it on a technical camera that just opens up you know the
possibilities of what you can actually do with the equipment and that’s just
amazing of course the image quality you’re dealing with a sensor that’s
twice a size as a 35-millimeter sensor and that’s going to produce shallower
depth of field it’s going to capture more light it’s going to be sharper and
of course that’s all the stuff we’re going for but what it also does is
provides more color information more accurate color representation larger
dynamic ranges you know from the blacks to the whites you know you’re looking at
12 14 stops of dynamic range and easy to clean you know when you take that back
off that chip sitting right there you just get your swab wipe it clean it up
brand new of course you know it’s impressive that’s just kind of a little
ego driven thing there I guess and you have great lenses available on these
things now you don’t have the range of lenses like you do in here which will go
in the con list but the lenses you do have available for these are superb
they’re sharp they’re crisp you have the leaf shutter options in some of the
lenses they’re just magnificent and of course another thing that’s not
necessarily a benefit of the camera itself but when you get into a system
like this is the customer service you get from the company that you purchase
from I don’t know about all of the you know different companies and plans
available and stuff like that but I know that if something goes wrong with this
camera I can have it taken to the shop I’ll get something to use in exchange
for it it’ll be taken care of in no time and ship back to me I’ve heard some
horror stories of course on both sides and you can’t win them all all the time
but I have heard a lot of bad things about new models and cameras that come
out in the 35 millimeter world my d800 when it first came out had some issues
and luckily I ended up with a model that came out after those issues were taken
care of but I haven’t heard of that many issues out of medium format systems I
would think that’s mostly because when you have a customer forking out that
kind of money the last thing you want is for them to be angry with you because
you didn’t give them a functioning product that said I’m only saying that
because I personally haven’t heard of any of those issues and then I guess
we’ll get to the cons the bad sides and you might be surprised at some of these
a they’re super expensive no kidding no surprise the lenses super expensive
maybe a little bit of a surprise but um I guess it should have been expected
right working with these you have a single focal point unlike these where
you look through the viewfinder and you have a ton of little boxes and a ray to
choose from and you can flick it around in there and get whatever you need in
here you have one circle in the middle of the frame that’s your focusing point
you do have the ability to kind of decide where it’s going to weigh you
know where it’s focusing so I’m like the edges of the focusing circle or the
center of the focusing circle but you can’t move it around the frame and when
you’re shooting something like this with a shallower depth of field that becomes
even more difficult because if you have to say focus and recompose
you got to be really careful doing that because the slight change in your
recomposition can completely blow your focus so it’s not the easiest thing in
the world to deal with of course again if you’re shooting tethered and you have
a live view saying capture one or some other similar program and becomes less
of an issue I so capabilities basically I wouldn’t use this camera on anything
over its native iso 100 if I have to I might put it on 200 but like I said I
like clean images but these things produce a lot of noise I think it might
go up to 800 iso and that’s just completely unusable so you’re not going
to be using these for sporting events low-light situations you know and some
soccer in a field at night of your family you’re definitely not going to be
getting photos with this guy you’re going to want to take something like
this with the long wide aperture lens and just have a blast and capture rate
you know on these we were talking about five frames a second upwards of 10 or 11
frames a second something like this you’re looking at one frame a second
maybe one point zero five frames per second something like that but uh
they’re slow and I think a lot of that has to do is just how long it takes to
process such a large image image file it’s it’s not really that big of a deal
for the kind of work I do if your still life photographer or something like that
but you know if you’re shooting say hi fashion or something and you’ve got a
model that’s there’s just a whole bunch of energy and she’s going through these
tons of poses and you want to be able to capture as much of that as possible this
you’re not really going to be able to do that with you know it’s going to be
click click click and that’s about as fast as it’s going to get the LCD screen
on the back of these cameras I’m not going to say this about the new ones
because some of the newer ones the Krytos and the IQ to
forties or two 80s or 2 60’s or whatever they are probably have really nice
screens on them I haven’t had my hands on one yet but I do know that the older
digital backs or even some of the newer versions of older models like the Aptus
series from leaf the screens just aren’t very good you get a lot of banding and
gradients and stuff like that for color representation and it’s just kind of
difficult to deal with the touchscreen is nice but you end up with fingerprints
all over the screen and I find myself having to wipe it constantly and no
built-in live view some of the newer ones do like I said the sum of the
Krytos and the IQ series from phase have live view built in and I can tell you
that would definitely be at the top of the pro list if I had one of those but
as of right now it’s got to sit on my con list because it’s in the majority of
the older more affordable digital backs that you find the lower quality screens
and accessing some of the controls you know if you take a look at this you
don’t have all the buttons that you had on this I mean it’s just buttons
everywhere on this thing here you’ve got a knob you know your dial of three or
four buttons here and a button here you know what I mean the rest of it is in
your digital back so if you want to change your white balance or your ISO or
any of that kind of stuff you have to go in here route into your menu or whatever
it is go to wherever it is and you can set up a favorites folder that has your
most accessed options and that’s pretty convenient but still it’s not really as
easy as just pressing the button scroll to where it is and you’re good to go I
find with this I don’t have to really look at what I’m doing when I’m making
changes with this I do and complicated custom settings you know over here it’s
pretty easy to set up custom menus and settings but over here when you get into
the customizations nothing’s really named
intuitively it’s like c1 c2 c3 and then there’s all these just different
categories that don’t have even abbreviations that make sense so you
kind of to keep a little cheat sheet with you or something that tells you
what they all mean if you play with that kind of stuff a lot I find myself not
doing that I tend to just keep it in manual hundred iso and then I’m just
messing with you know shutter speed and aperture and even shutter speed not that
often because I’m using you know strobes and I typically keep it a it max ink so
that would be that talking about the lenses again you know I said that with
medium format the lenses that are available are incredible but where you
have a problem is there aren’t that many available at least not in comparison to
35 millimeter there are a couple tilt shift lens available a couple of macro
lenses available but really the choices are fairly limited good news is the
choices that are there are superb they’re also incredibly expensive I
think I say like a 85 millimeter tilt shift lens from Schneider or well let’s
go with Nikon which is pretty much just as good it’s 90 millimeters from
schneider i believe the 85 millimeter tilt shift lens from nikon is going to
run you a couple thousand dollars and that’s expensive but it’s a great lens
and it will do what you needed to do however on medium format the 90
millimeter Schneider tilt shift I’m sorry 120 millimeter Schneider tilt
shift lens is depending on where you get it going to run you somewhere between
five thousand and six and a half thousand dollars that’s pretty expensive
likewise just regular you know leaf shutter macro lenses 120 millimeter from
the same company you’re looking at four grand ish four or five thousand dollars
so it’s very expensive but you do get the quality out of that and that pretty
much wraps up for this pros and cons when I only
had my d800 system when I was dreaming about having a medium format system I
kind of expected that if i was going to fork out that kind of money everything
would just be better that this all the options that you had in this would
transfer to this and it would just do the job better maybe even provide me
some new trickier options that weren’t previously available in this kind of
system that turned out not to be the case actually a lot of the things that
are available here are not available here and when they are available here in
a handful of instances they actually don’t perform as well as they do in the
35 millimeter system so as I said at the beginning of this you might be really
surprised at what fifteen to thirty thousand dollars won’t buy you in a
future part of this series we are going to compare a medium format DSLR system
with this digital back on a cambo Ultima monorail camera and we’re just going to
compare the pros and cons of using both of those systems obviously using the
large format system is going to slow things down a bit but it might get us
some really nice results that we don’t expect to we’ll see I’ve been Josh
Geiger with photo gcom and we’ll talk to you later

I’ve made what you’re mostly just gonna be the interior stuff but talk about
every little aspect of the RV and what I like and maybe what I would have done
differently but definitely time to give you a new tour of my RV Miranda here
she’s got two slides a big one here on the passenger side which is giving me
problems the teeth underneath the slide mechanism are all chewed up it’s very
difficult to get this to go back in but sometimes I’m gonna be parked somewhere
like right now it’s nice to have the extra floor space
we’re about that lets me get inside because I do not have to have this slide
out to be able to use it lots of under storage here got a few
Christmas decorations around it right now and here’s the driver’s side of the
RV with the driver side slide out this is where my new Rico dual recliner
system is at so having the slide out puts me farther away from the monster TV
which I will show you in just a minute also again lots and lots of storage
underneath there’s four on each side well that’s the water this is the part I
don’t like for winter because the water pump itself is exposed on the outside of
the RV with no protection or heat other than that everything else seems to do
okay this is the motorcycle carrier this is where the motorcycle is stored while
I’m driving it comes with a seven foot ramp here that allows me to get a lot
more room I remove the license plate from here and popped it up to here where
you can see it so that the motorcycle isn’t blocking it as well as I added LED
strips on the back here so you can definitely see my turn signals and brake
lights they’re not blocked by the wheels talk about solar the thing I’m most
happy with this RV may be the modification that just makes everything
work is the epic solar system off-grid boondocking setup that I’ve had
installed on this RV which makes it possible and the brains of it I will
show you but up on the roof we’ve got four solar panels up there that are
three hundred and twenty watts apiece so I’ve got twelve hundred and eighty watts
of solar permanently mounted to the roof I was originally gonna go with just
three and then possibly tilt those panels in the wintertime when the sun’s
lower since I found out I had more room I just added a fourth panel and
therefore I get that 25% extra solar anyway naturally and I don’t have to
climb up and down the roof at all so yeah lots of watts of solar on the roof
but we got to have a way to store it and that’s where this compartment here comes
into play the brains of my solar operation this is why I do not have to
go to RV parks anymore and plug into power why I don’t have to run the
generator for power I’ve got five lithium batteries equaling 500 useable
amp hours of storage a 3000 watt inverter 150 amp charge controller there
and my buddy Wayne Darby prepper Wayne on YouTube installed
system so that inside were tapped into the fuse box inside which means every
outlet in there works when I’m not plugged in as if I were plugged in
basically I don’t know the difference we’ll go inside and I will show you an
updated tour of Miranda here and so now we will step into the RV and we’ll take
a little tour ready jacks so again both slides are out right now but I’m going
to kind of show you where those slides would be when they are inside and we
will start here in the living room where I guess the most changes have
happened not the most difficult changes but the most has changed because most
RVs have an uncomfortable couch and a dinette and I no longer have either of
those this is where the monstrous waste of space four-person dinette used to be
and now I have this nice convenient little six drawer system keep filming
gear and everything else in and there’s this monstrosity right here this is a 55
inch TV don’t know if it’s absolutely the largest physical TV in an RV
it is definitely fun to watch sports and movies on this TV but the TV was just
part of it that really uncomfortable couch sofa that came with the RV was not
working that is why Jax and I upgraded to these
awesome dual recliners with cup holders and storage underneath here do you want
to demonstrate how it works Jax once you sit down you just pull this cord right
here they’re not like electrical or anything
and of course jackson’s are gonna be able to sit back but the recliner goes
back it’s a zero wall recliner and so he’ll sit there also then sit here when
i get up to go get another barley pop he’ll steal this seat and then i’ll go
back over there because he likes the warmest seat really did you don’t need
to do that right now i do have the front curtains up here because i’m living in
the RV right now and i don’t really need that but i can open it up and have a
nice view this TV up here is used mainly just for my epic security system which
i’m not going to talk specifics because i don’t want there to be anything like
like a loophole or something that i leave
but I installed seven exterior cameras around the outside of the RV and also
one inside here so that I can monitor the RV while I’m away or I can simply
just look out and find out what exactly is going on at any corner of my RV also
the interior camera is great because I have the cameras hooked to the internet
all the time a server so I can remotely watch from my phone anywhere in the
country I can see what Jax is doing on the couch what’s going on inside the RV
in general I can even hang a little thermometer up near it and see what the
temperature is remotely in the RV and I am getting a new alarm installed in the
RV while I’m here in this location soon yeah the TV is a very large TV but this
is not just for like pleasure you know this is my work vehicle but I also need
to have a fun way to watch movies and I have a lot of online streaming
subscriptions oh by the way one of the things I do to help me boost the signal
because I do rely on that cellular signal for Wi-Fi is I have a Wi-Fi
booster I’m not using it right now but there’s the block for it and then up on
the roof of my RV is the amplifier and the exterior antenna which is going to
give me much better signal strength to the nearest cell phone tower to be able
to have Wi-Fi on the road alright let’s stand back and look at
this again remember this slide is out right now so when I’m driving this slide
this edge of the couch comes to right there leaving me this whole section open
and wide it’s actually wider here than it is in the hallway there that is kind
of fixed I can’t change any of that so yeah we’ll move on to the kitchen over
here I’ve got my gas stove and my oven I’ve got a microwave and as I mentioned
every outlet and USB in the entire RV is always hot always available on solar
okay that’s why I have my k-cup coffee maker over here plugged into a power
strip I can run that no problem off of my solar batteries
I’ve got storage under the sink which as you can imagine once this slide comes in
I do not have access to those two drawers so nothing that I need on a
regular basis is stored in there there it’s mostly just cleaning supplies I’ve
got a dual basin sink there I hang up my coats my keys and
sunglasses here I’ve got my 100,000 subscriber plaque Claire we got my
fridge and freezer with mr. Han so will there in carbonite they’re always
running on gas propane for me we’ve got Jax’s bowl for water and food
right here which reminds me I forgot to point out the litter box kind of hidden
and stealth right here in the corner easy to maintain and clean and I just
spray it every time he uses it and we just keep up with that it’s no biggie
right no no big you know got storage for pots and pans in here and and a lot more
cupboard space for other foods you know this is a line I had put in over the
summer which is tapped into my existing propane line so that I can plug in my
catalytic heater directly off of the propane line in the RV and then here is
the old dual bunk bed situation there were two bunk beds here taking up a
bunch of space and I took those out and converted this into my own little office
most of the stuff on the desk is secured to the desk those cameras need to move
but everything else is secured by Velcro velcro everything yes and I do want to
get a better office chair let’s go over to the bathroom I have a nice big comfy
shower in there mm-hmm I got my sink and toilet and of course I have a nightlight
in here that stays on all the time so I’ll cover that you can see it’s always
on might as well doesn’t run any power and it’s an easy way to light up the
bathroom in here so there’s that and that takes us to the master bedroom here
and remember the slide is out right now this is where I have made the biggest
changes noticeably the bed now goes north to south instead of east to west
which meant when the slides in the in position which this base would come to
about right here the bed going this way you couldn’t access any of the drawers
and even even these ones up here would not open and there was no way to walk
around the bed now with the slide in and this change right here I can walk all
the way around the bed with the slide in Jack’s you like that I
got Jax’s food right here an extra kitty litter right here I kept one end table
with a drawer fan and a light this window here can open let in some air
with a screen it’s also an emergency exit and we do have our little mattress
here very nice comfortable mattress there got my massive magnet board here I
do have a lot of magnets but this is the largest magnet board that you’ve ever
seen this is 6 feet long by 4 feet tall got it on Amazon for a hundred and
eighty dollars and right now I have removed the old TV that was right here I
don’t use it I’m gonna do something else like storage here otherwise I’ve got all
my clothes hung up my jeans are kind of piled up down here and my sweaters and
hoodies socks the boxers in one drawer and utilizing every bit of storage yes
this is where Jack spends about 18 hours a day sleeping on the bed yes Sims does
yes so did I cover everything that’s basically the four main remodels the
couch converted to the dual recliner the dinette converted into the TV area the
bed switching that so that it’s a walk around with the slide in and of course
my office space with the dual bunk area that is how I mostly I have made this RV
mine and comfortable for both of us on the road full-time so anyway I just
wanted to update I’ve had lots of people ask me what the RV looks like now eight
months after I got it in this box right here I have some awesome news it’s been
exactly a year since I introduced stickers on this channel and right away
and those featured the old RV Yoda so it was time to stop into a bullet-proof
works over there and had some new stickers made for the channel it’s a new
type of material it is UV resistant and a hundred percent waterproof it features
the new RV Jack’s has been moved to the roof of the RV and got some palm trees
in there and Miranda looking really really good
so these make great stocking stuffers or if you have an outdated one that was not
made of the best quality before you want to get one of these
they are for sale now I’ll put a link in the video description if you’re
interested I have a special end of 2019 price for these you can get two of them
for five dollars or five of these for ten dollars shipped internationally and
that’s a really good price I’m kind of undercutting the market for YouTube
sticker sales but yeah that is the price until the end of 2019 or until I sell
out here in East Halton because I’ve got the time to sit down and write out the
envelopes hand handmade and send them out to you before I get back on the road
before Thanksgivings over so if you’re interested link in the video description
below otherwise Jax and I are we’re gonna attempt to stay warm it is getting
colder here in Illinois so we’re gonna do our best and just just roll with the
punches some people are like Erik you’re not chasing 70 degrees anymore well
neither was I when I was in California two months ago 110 degrees now 30
degrees average those two out we’re still sitting pretty about 70 degrees
average I mean right I’ll be back with some more videos from Illinois soon here
guys and remember if you’re interested in those stickers get them now while I
got them in stock and I’m available to handwrite all those envelopes and ship
them out to you and thanks so much for supporting the channel guys also if
you’re on patreon and you are in one of the top two tiers the personalized
postcard tier or the signed autographed picture tier I’m gonna send you two
stickers automatically with this month’s patreon mail out so thank you guys over
there on patreon I’ll put a link for patreon also if you want to see some
extra videos and clip subjects and I / they are otherwise so long see you soon
guys bye bye you

Aperture Explained Photography Tutorial: Understanding Exposure And Camera Settings

Aperture Explained Photography Tutorial: Understanding Exposure And Camera Settings


Right before we jump into this video, if you
want to get my free 11 days to better photography mini video course, head on over to froknowsphoto.com/11days
to get started right now. Jared Polin, froknowsphoto.com and I’m calling
this video Aperture 101. I’m going to quickly help you understand
what it is and how it affects your image. So, aperture, when you break it down to the
very fundamentals, two things it’s doing. It’s affecting the depth of field, so how
much of your subject or scene is going to be in focus, as well as how much light you
are letting in to the image sensor. So, you’ll see lenses like f/1.8 and as
you go through your apertures, you are going up to f/22. So, this is what it looks like. If you are at f/1.4, you are letting this
much light in, a ton. You see this whole. That’s how much light can get through. As you go up in your apertures to 8, 11, 22,
and then, oh, they have some lenses to 64, less light comes in. So, that’s exactly what’s happening there. The lower the aperture in terms of f/1.4,
f/2.8, the more light you are letting in. As you close that down, think about it. You are closing down the amount of light that’s
coming in. Think of how your eye works. In low light situation, the iris of your eye
opens up even more to let more light in, so you are gathering more light. In bright situations, you know the iris of
your eye gets smaller, because it’s not letting as much light in. It’s compensating for it. So, I did a quick sample of couple of images
right here with the bobbleheads. The first image that I took at f/2.8 focused
right on the front bobblehead. You can see we’ve isolated that front subject. But what happens when we go to f/11, still
focusing in the same spot, you can see that the focus area has expanded, now that we’ve
gone to f/11. So, what’s going to happen at f/22? Yep, you guessed it, focusing on the same
front bobblehead, you can get even more in focus at f/22. But what you have to be careful with is as
you get to those higher apertures, you are cutting down on the amount of light being
let in, which means you are affecting your shutter speed. Remember the exposure triangle. That’s right. When you make one change to the aperture,
you are affecting something else in the exposure triangle. So, here is a quick tip for when you are shooting
group photos, a lot of people wonder why didn’t I get the people in the back or in the middle
in focus? Well, because you are shooting it too wide
of an aperture. So, the rule of thumb with a group shot is
not only focusing on the center person, but have a little bit wider aperture f/4, f/5.6,
f/6.3 that’s going to allow you to get more in focus. Or if you want to shoot at the f/2.8s or 3.5s,
get everybody on the same exact plane, because if they are on the same plane, they should
still be in focus based off of the aperture that you picked. So, I know that’s a quick and basic look
at aperture 101. But if you want to learn more, if you want
to understand the fundamentals of the exposure triangle and finally get out of auto and take
control of your camera, I created just the guide to do that. It’s called the FROKNOWSPHOTO guide to getting
out of auto. Not only will you fully understand how to
use aperture quickly, I’m going to teach you the entire exposure triangle, as well
as how to capture amazing images that I know you can capture. To get a free preview of the guide, go over
to froknowsphoto.com/guide to get that preview right now. So, I hope you enjoy those tips and that’s
it. Jared Polin, froknowsphoto.com. See you.
