George Babbitt: I haven't found any that are easily printable, but there was one place that sells a gray card set with photographer's rights printed on one side and blank on the other. They offer the same info in plain text that you could format yourself, but I am not sure how legally sound the info is.

There is also this pdf that was provided by and stamped with a lawyers letterhead which might provide more confident source material on the matter, though he does of course have a disclaimer that this should not be construed as legal advice nor suggest that this info sets up any kind of relationship with him as counsel.


I think that pdf is the one I was thinking about.  It looks like what I was remembering.

What is OBO that I have been seeing in the last two contests?

George Babbitt: What is OBO that I have been seeing in the last two contests?


It stands for "On Behalf Of".  When a farktographer can't post to a contest for whatever reason, they can ask someone else to post their entries for them. To make sure that the original farktographer is credited for those entries posted by another (both in the contest and in the statistics on BiblioStats), the posting farktographer usually adds an "OBO" line or something similar.  The scraper that populates the statistics for BiblioStats looks for specific phrases ("OBO" and "On Behalf Of", among others) to know that it should attribute the entry to someone other than the actual poster.

Hi...
I hope I'm not bothering you, but I was admiring your posts in the latest contest (7920356), and I wondered if you could tell me what kind of settings you used to get that effect from the flowing water?
I've only recently gotten my first DSLR, although I'm not entirely new to photography. My earlier experiments with my point-and-shoot got mixed results, and I haven't done even that well as yet with the new rig. (yet... I shall learn)
I'd be eternally grateful if you could share a secret or two.

Thanks!

I can offer help for you, although I am not sleeping.  Two things.  First, sleeping has his photos on flickr.  If you scroll down past the photo and then to 'additional info' and click (Show more), ta-da, there is his EXIF data.  He used a D700 and a Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 lens with settings of 6 seconds, f/11 and ISO 200.  I learned a huge amount of photography from reading that data from flickr.  I would see a picture I liked, clicked that data and learned what they did.  It's still a habit I have today and I always check, if they are available.  A word of caution on the flickr stuff- that is an option that a user can select to turn on and off.  So not every picture has it.  Next, I would suggest the book Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson.  It's very well written, it get technical without too much tech and is a ton of knowledge.  The biggest piece you can take away from the book is total control of your camera; you'll be able to make the best decision for what you want- not what the camera thinks you wants.  There are other books that teach this and I am sure everyone has a favorite, but this really helped me.

Side note on what Eeek had to say regarding settings used for sleeping's photos. The lighting would suggest that the camera was not stopped down far enough to have produced so much motion blur of the water from the slow shutter speed needed to achieve that effect, six seconds in the case of the black and white shot. Their is probably some Neutral Density and/or polarizing filters involved to limit the light coming in and allow for the increase in shutter time to the six seconds listed without overexposing the shot.

Yes, I have a strong Neutral Density filter (a good 6 stop B&W, it wasn't cheap...)  That, plus a sturdy tripod and remote release, is really the only way to get that level of blur during the day.

I agree on Understanding Exposure, too BTW - one of the best photography books I've read.

A trolley that is rail-bound/rail-requiring would have fit.  A trolley that's simply a bus with wheels but painted like a trolley wouldn't fit.  Trolleys traditionally were rail bound.  Make sense?

I'm given to understand that this is where I should post chatter & miscellaneous details about entries in the Farktography contests, so I wanted to share the story behind the moonbow picture I posted this week.

Last summer, my wife & I went to Maui for our honeymoon. I brought the Canon S100 point & shoot that I'd purchased a while back but hadn't really learned to use properly. I'm at best an enthusiastic amateur photographer, and I haven't invested in a DSLR yet. I tend to like something easy to carry around with me, and the S100 is compact while still offering a lot of manual control possibilities.

We got back to the hotel that night after dinner & shopping around Lahaina, and I noticed the moonbow from the hotel balcony. With the naked eye, you really don't see any color separation, just a faint bow shape on the horizon. I took pictures with several different shutter speeds, from 1 to 15 seconds. I was really surprised (& frustrated) that the only pictures that weren't almost pitch black were the 1-second exposures. I was having trouble messing around with the settings in the dark, and the moonbow was already starting to fade, so I wasn't able to experiment more to see what was going on.

I found out later that the S100 automatically drops the ISO down to 80 for any shutter speed longer than one second, which is why the 8 & 15-second shots didn't turn out. With the high ISO on the shot I posted, there's a lot of noise, but I was just happy to be able to be able to capture the moonbow at all. The camera was on a tripod, of course.

With a proper DSLR rig & the know-how to use it properly, I'm sure it could have been a better picture, but it's still one of my favorites. It's so rare to even see a moonbow (I don't I'd ever seen one before in my 40+ years); being able to see it and shoot it was incredible.

Thanks so much for sharing about that picture.  I've seen halos around the moon, but not moonbows like what you captured; it was really striking!  And ultimately, you shoot every picture with the camera you have, not the camera you wish you had.  As you found, there may have been features of a higher end camera that would have made that shot easier to get, but at the end of the day, if you have the eye and a basic knowledge of photography, you can take amazing pictures no matter the camera.  Glad to have you aboard with us :)

And in other news, congrats to oddmind this week for her "Weather 2: Weather or Not" win!  That lightning shot is gorgeous!

Is that really an undercover bike cop?
Are you gonna get a boot to the door in the middle of the night for publishing a photo like that?
Besides the ear piece, what gave him away?
What happened next?
