    I think it might be a good idea to just have one big thread for photomode stuff. You know for posting your pictures and sharing tips and doin, err stuff!

    Aaaanyway, here are some of my attempts!
    I'm not very grood (great or good) at it though.

    The one R34 M-Spec Nur shot i've taken. Well admitting to have taken, but the other ones were terrible.

    Yeah, it'd be an awesome idea, if it hadn't been done like, 3 or 4 times already. :tup:

    I couldn't find that other thread that I saw today, so I assumed someone had got rid of it. Also the only other threads are the request threads and chaser_fans one which I think is for his stuff only.

    So :middlefinger:

    Damn, doesn't work here.

    I appreciated and respected the post, until the middle finger part. Totally uncalled for. I'd make a witty and sarcastic comeback, but polishing my e-'tude will do very little more than help me make an ass out of myself, which I seem very good at.

    But that aside, I understand, and I will leave you with a simple "My bad."

    Ha! Err, good point it was uncalled for!

    I sometimes lapse into a state non-awesomeness, which I am being apologise! [​IMG]

    I really need to find a better place to host these though, if only GTP would let me attatch more than 100kb.

    It happens to me, too. I call them "stupid fits".

    race idiot...for a number of your shots do the following,

    a)increase your aperture to 9 higher
    b)increase exposure compensation to +0.5 or 0.6EV
    c)increase your shutter speed

    a) will get you a wider depth of field...for example, in the shot of your HSC from the rear, the rear is focused, but the rest of the car isn't...kind of annoying having a half-assed focused remainder picture imho (just my opinion btw)
    b) if you increase exposure compensation, you will end up with a lighter and easier to see picture overall
    c) if you increase your shutter speed, you will eliminate some minor blurring you have due to using a slow shutter speed in the last picture...though the blur in the front car may be due to your aperture...hard to say.

    here are some of mine:

    Wow, mine look sucky in comparison.

    Let me give some of those things you said a go.

    PS what the hell does square do? It messes around with the focus?

    Incredibly stupid question, which value is the aperture?

    Would this also be a good place to discuss compatibility of different USB drives? I'd like to pick one up before the game drops, probably a 256MB, but I want to make sure it's going to work with Photomode. I'd suspect the Sony models would be a safe bet, but could you guys possibly post what types you're using?

    I have a 512mb Sony Micro Vault, I should try out my old 128mb San Disc though and i'll see if I can borrow a creative Muvo to test.

    I use a creative muvo 1.5gb MP3 player, works like a charm!

    If there's a REALLY kind person out there with the game who doesn't mind doing a photo mode request, I'd LOVE to see a pic of a (preferably dark green) Peugeot 206, preferably on the Nurb, though anywhere will do!
    Thanks,
    asv

    i'm compiling a list on there as people post...unfortunately, it's been relegated every day to about 3 pages back from the front page lol

    idiot racer,
    i forget which is which, but R1 + up or down and L1 + up or down should do aperture and exposure compensation. i do photography as a hobby so this is just kind of an extension of that for me :)

    The F Value (One next to zoom in Photomode, R1 in Photodrive)

    I have a question though, does anyone know what manual focus (square in photodrive) does?

    KSaiyu,
    if you have the aperture set to say...F/1.4, then your depth of field is going to be VERY shallow, meaning only a very SMALL part of the picture will be in focus...with the rest being out of focus.

    this creates for some pretty nifty effects, but require you to determine where exactly your focus will be...in a case like this, autofocus does not work well and you would want to use the manual focus to pinpoint a focused area

    I see, but what does pushing square (or the focus button in photomode) actually do - how is it different from just using autofocus?

    autofocus will use AI (more or less) to determine what point to focus on...that point may or may not be what YOU want to focus on...so you use manual focus to override what the AI thinks you want :)

    Thanks for explaining this, I have one final question though - does that thing in the middle of the viewfinder determine where the manual focus will be, and do I have to hold focus and the shutter together for it to work?

    Again, thanks :tup:

    Perhaps we should get a moderator to merge both threads and sticky them. I don't mind helping out testing any storage media that I can get my hands on.

    Ahh, I see I think I got it figured out it's the R value.

    I kinda thought you were a photographer of some sort, unfortunately my expertise in photography tends to be point camera at object, take picture. This is sort of getting me interested though.
