Why are people reserving spots? I don't get it.

Isn't that the same as people who only post at the top of a page in big photo threads on other forums?

**runs to make tomorrows thread so he gets first spot**

So we can call you names if you don't use your *reserved* spot?

Thats slightly better.

I'm beginning to pick up the 'motivation' theme and I understand that. What I initially thought was that it was a 'look at my pics first' theme.

Yeah, I'm LOVING it. Its still only 12* right now, shouldn't warm up much more today then back into the singles... it was probably around 3 or 4* when I shot that. Just after sunrise.


I like it, Scott! Is that you?

Yep! Camera on tripod, timer, ran to get in place. :lol:

Make sure you type the 0 part, and hold down alt the whole time.

Also, © is alt + 0169

The é in Nestlé is alt + 130

Stime187
01-02-2008, 11:26 AM
Yeah, nothing... I'm trying every combination. Including holding down alt the whole time.

Yeah, a bit of a compositional mistake... :lol: hard to plan where to stand when running to and from the camera in single-digit weather. I'm just pumped it came out sharp considering the 1" exposure. I tried to be as still as possible.

Make sure your numlock is on and you're using the side keys...

LucKie355
01-02-2008, 11:32 AM
Yeah you have to use the number pad. I can't do it on my lappy, so I just type out degrees. :lol:

And on topic, great photo Scott :)

Yea, kinda hard to dodge those icicles. I think the giant one to the skull looks pretty cool, though.

Stime187
01-02-2008, 11:34 AM
It was HUGE too, probably a good 10ft behind me and still that big...

jacobsen1
01-02-2008, 11:35 AM
even on a laptop you should have a Fn key and separate numbers on some other keys right? Like on the Eee, there is a tiny Fn key between the windows key and the alt key. There are little blue numbers on the keyboard on the right half somewhere too. Holding down alt and Fn and using those numbers works for me...

And it's not like this is that important, it just always bugged me. I learned for putting the © on my images.

and hurry up with the "good" version scott. :lol:

LucKie355
01-02-2008, 11:37 AM
º HA It worked! I never could get it to do it before even when using the Fn key. I'm very happy now. Thanks Ben!

it's maybe a tad overdone (no detail in the snow) but it doesn't wreck it KiKi...
But yes, don't manually adjust brightness or contrast on a laptop. Make yourself an action that does it "good enough" when you're stuck using it. ;)

LucKie355
01-02-2008, 04:12 PM
I've done most of the other pictures in here on Luca's PC, but got lazy this morning and decided to try it on mine. Lessons learned. And I promise tomorrow won't be a tree or a cat. :lol:

hey, for a PAD it doesn't matter what you shoot, the point is to just make sure you shoot. 365 cat pictures is better than one cat picture and stopping.

This is my 3rd year attempting this. 2006 was the broken pelvis, so the crutches & camera deal got old. Last year I had too much **** going on and lost interest. This year I'm trying to do 2 of them. One of anything, then one of the baby every day after he arrives. :D I'm sure they'll get merged, but at least with junior on his way, that should keep me on track. :lol:
