skatie81 The commute. 3mon
  •   skatie81 No, you're more lovelier! Wait, what were we talking about again? @willgortoa 3mon
  •   skatie81 I'm afraid Mother Nature takes all the credit on this one @mon_and_mia 3mon
  •   skatie81 It sure does make the commute easier 😀 @ragandbonemanfurniture 3mon
  •   mon_and_mia @skatie81 Either i can't get a window seat or my photos are blurry. I can't win. I've been trying to get a decent shot of that little blue cottage at Wondabyne for years! 3mon
  •   willgortoa My ego? Wait. I'm confused. Melancholy and the infinite sadness? That blue cottage, by the way ... not sure what camera you're using, or how far from the edge of the track the cottage is, but I'll make a couple of suggestions ... Assuming you can open a window [which would potentially be better for all manner of reasons - but I guess it's possible your commute train might not have the door/window alcoves between carriages], focus on the cottage in the distance then begin to pan as it reaches the point you want to take the picture. Note ... *always* keeping it in the *same* part of the frame. In theory, relative to its distance from you, you'll always be moving [panning] at the same speed as the train, which should result in a *still* image. It'll take a bit of practice but should work. And, uh, apologies if I'm either teaching granny to suck eggs here, or there's another technical detail of which I'm blissfully unaware. 3mon
  •   skatie81 Well, there you go @mon_and_mia tips from the photographer extraordinaire himself Thanks @willgortoa ! As for me, I'm just using an old iPhone and hoping for the best 😀 3mon
  •   mon_and_mia @willgortoa Thank you for your advice! I have just been trying with my phone camera & it's terrible. I will take my camera with me one day, i have a Nikon 3000, i'm not that happy with it but that's probably because i need to learn to use it better. I'll take your tips on board. I think one day i'll hop off the train & get a proper shot :) 3mon
  •   willgortoa @mon_and_mia Sorry. Didn't tag you there. [Thanks Kate.] I kind of assumed you were using a phone camera - hence no reference to shutter speeds. BUT... if you've got a D3000 you've got considerably less excuses. €;°) . An excellent entry level DSLR for beginners. Although, by definition, it will take a bit of practice to master [especially if you've never used this form of camera]. BUT 2... it does have a Guide setting on the main mode dial which gives beginners tips, if you think you need that. But, for its specs, it's got a good/fast AF sensor and a very swift high shutter speed. In fact, if you had enough light on any given day - and assuming the cottage isn't virtually on top of you - even the panning could be kept to a minimum due to the latter. Good luck! . €¦°) 3mon
