I've just bought a day long studio tuition from Groupon. £39 and it covers 1/2 a day shooting things such as popping balloons and advertising photography, then 1/2 a day shooting a model

ISO1600,f16 using natural daylight. Topaz cleaned up the noise very well for a first attempt. Worth a longer look.

Two tutorials here - essential viewing to get the best from it. Fiddling with the presets is a reasonable start but no substitute for doing it this way...

I bought it (download) straight from their site. Did the same as you - 30 day trial and then bought a license code.
The price is in Dollars but it doesn't matter. It looks like $79.99 at the moment which is only about £50.
Worth every penny.

Just started using Topaz, thanks for the tip. I can see it would be useful in a number of applications. Using the trial version (30days) at present, any idea of the uk cost and is there a uk supplier that you know of, thanks in advance.

Topaz Denoise Dave - get the hang of that and it will open a whole new world of very usable high ISO's

Thanks keebs yes sigmas OS is quite good, normally though below 1/250 is very chancy, guess i got lucky.
My D5000 just gets to grainy above 800iso so i just took a few quick shots, didn't expect them to be any good

500mm and 1/80th? You must have IS on that lens surely Dave? Hand-held I can't get below 1/320 with any meaningful sharpness at 400mm!!!

Some very nice macro work here guys

Sundance - very good use of Topaz mate - definitely got the hang of that now Great Kingy grab as well - very difficult bird to get.

My Kingfisher woke me up as I was napping in the chair. A single bleep did it and as I was trying to work out what I was looking at I had a fair amount of time to enjoy his company.

We also had a resident Robin in one swim who loved bits of your grub. I think he turned up the following year looking way past it. Somebody told me that they had a life expectancy of two years. Could be true as that was the last time he dined with us.

Cheers dave.
Jeff, your right, its hard to have it to hand. I had a result with this one, as I had spoted him a few mins previously
and had got the camera out and sitting in the top of its open bag next to me.

All in all a really weird day, as can be seen, lovely sunshine. hard to believe it was jan and the lake was frozen.
The below pic was taken 4 hours ealier.

Itís a side of spending so much time out of doors that a lot of people some of them anglers donít relate to

I never took a decent camera fishing and the compact I did take spent most of its time in the bottom of the rucksack

As a consequence of this I have missed some interesting and memorable capturers. To be fair I would have had to have the camera within touching distance or hanging around my neck.

I had a kingfisher sit on the end of my rod once and it was a great experience. I am full of admiration for those people who get top class capturers under these conditions. Most of us do the best we can with what we have at the time.
