    The Rllmuk Photography Thread

    APS-C equivalents of 28-85mm kit and 53mm prime, but I'd like to move towards nice light and pin-sharp primes. Likely a 16mm (24mm equiv), my 35mm (53mm) and then three choices; an 85mm equiv, 135mm equiv or save up for the 50-140mm (75-215mm equiv.), although it's a bit massive for my camera body. Edit: I should note my subjects - cars & car shows, a little motorsport, street stuff, occasional holidays.

    Really like these - what focal length(s) are these at? Still trying to decide on my next lens.

    Thanks @Naysonymous, I was just using JPEGs while I got to grips with it although the camera is now set to JPEG fine + raw compressed. Not doing any post outside of crops and resizing for web yet. I've recently learnt about "protecting highlights"/"exposing right" so will be playing with that next, as I haven't even had the shutter control off auto! Looking again I got the f-stop right more often when the images had people in (that I won't be posting here as I don't know how they'd feel about it). I guess I was more concious of getting them entirely in focus compared to doing is with objects. Sometimes it kinda worked though.

    I impulse bought a Fuji XF 35mm f2 (50mm equivalent) prime lens in an airport the other day. I've never really been "in to" photography but playing around with it on holiday was a lot of fun. I wouldn't say any of the photos I took were great, which is to be expected, but I enjoyed working within the limitations of having no zoom - instead moving around and not being precious about "missing" shots. In fact, I now have some 90mm (135mm equivalent) lenses on eBay watch. Camera body is a second hand X-T20. This was the first shot through the lens, off the hotel room balcony upon arrival: "Let's see what it's like wide open" (f2) - a much shorter depth of field to what I'm used to, not getting everything I want into focus: I like cats: What I saw a lot of cats hunting: Had the focus point in the wrong place but let's go with the result: A tree and some pretty bokeh: Looking back at all the photos I took I think I'm messing up the f-stop a lot and getting too short of a depth of field. Also blown out highlights - maybe the shutter and ISO couldn't quite compensate for the wide open aperture?

    This is Hip-Hop.

    Sorry if this is a repost, I did check back briefly. My hip-hop album/EP of the year so far, by a long way.

    The Game Development Thread

    I had no idea you did it until I dropped into this thread as I found it organically but I've been enjoying Wingsuit greatly. That's rare for me as I spend my time at work playing and analysing tons of mobile games (i.e. the competition) when nothing else needs to be done. Having to do this has, of course, made me hate most games.

    Your favourite folk music

    A bit soppy but pretty much anything Kate Rusby.

    Sorry for the plug, but I thought I'd just drop this in: We're after a Unity Games Programmer. Preferably experienced and/or full of amaze. http://www.neonplay....programmer.html

    Really want to see Caterham's reaction on The Forum.

    Where exactly is Jake going and how come Sky are letting the BBC have all the races? Have they admitted defeat after putting out such mind-numbingly bland coverage?

    Not this interview crap again. They're paid to drive and rarely saying anything remotely interesting.

    Haha. If the result gets changed in Ferrari's favor by a stewarding decision post-race for something that wasn't even flagged as under investigation I'll rage-quit F1.
