Taken under an arch on the railway section of the Pont de Bir-Hakeim.

18/11/06 16.04 17mm ISO100 f4 at 1/500th. (More dof less shutterspeed would have been nice, Andrew :-s )

wow, that's wicked!

taken from an interesting spot, ha.
:) nice work!

.. since you seem to know what you're doing with photography, i wonder if i could ask for a litle help, i'm new at it, ha.. >.<
i was wondering what ISO stood for?
i have the setting on my camera but i don't really know what it does, aha.

Thanks v much Anna / Deenie whatever :D

Welcome on board the good ship DeviantArt.com, and what does ISO stand for? Well it's acknowledged as being the "International Standards Organisation" - a bunch of Tefal-heads who, well, set standards for things.

In photography we all used to use films right? Well different films showed different sensitivity to light and the ISO people were called in to set down standards that films could be measured against which would allow the photographer to know what exposure the film needed.

So they dictated that a film rated at ISO100 would require twice as much light as one rated at ISO200. That's why scales on cameras go 100,200,400,800 etc - each increment implies a doubling of light required.

Nowadays we don't use film but still our digital cameras are rated on this scale - we can fine tune the sensor to be more sensitive to light, handy when it's a bit gloomy (think Nov - March), but the trade off is a reduction in colour and sharpness (as with film incidentally).

My advice ? Set it at it's lowest rating to get the best quality shot unless there is little light in which case move it up a few to perhaps 400. You should shoot the same picture at all settings first so you know what the results will be like.

Hope that helps - there is more reading here should you need it :highfive:

:)

that'll probably help for either, so thankyou very much! ^^

No worries ! Oh, and you might see the same concept referred to by the letters ASA which was the old scale before ISO came along.

Remember also that by taking a picture with a longer exposure (shutter speed) you avoid having to raise the ISO and save quality. But longer exposures mean more blur unless a tripod is used.

Everything is a trade off between the various settings and options your camera offers. Some cameras offer very few options like this, and so aren't really great learning tools, whereas Pro-spec equipment might offer too many damn options!!

Go take a course, or at least get a basic photography book from your local library. Don't worry if it doesn't have a lot of digital stuff in it, that's for later. Cameras are still the same as ever, and use the same controls as 20 years ago.

Ask me anything you like and I'll try to help.

Brillant photo :) One of the most interesting shots of the Eiffel tower I have seen, I love the perspective.
The contrast between the black and white is great, makes it look real classic and pretty.
Congrats on the dd.

Thanks it was pretty random - I was staying in a hotel the other side of this bridge to the tower and so this perspective was on my mind for a day or two, then with the right sky I thought I'd give it a go. The colour version might get aired shortly to compare against.

Thanks for the comment !

i :heart: B&W shots of the Eiffel Tower!!!...they give to Paris a really old feeling... like the XX-th century atmosphere & i find it even romantic in some ways. the arch on the top furrounds the picture and sorta openes like a window to the heavy cloudy sky & that statue....:shrug:
awesome!!! :clap:

The contents and interest of this photo are superb. Great framing -- but I find it too dark, maybe too contrasty. My eyes want to squint, something to make an adjustment. But what a view!!!
