  • ... but it seems kind of silly to me when I'm somewhere that's really beautiful with a lot of tourists around... something like a historical landmark say... and I see so many people missing the ...
  • I totally agree with that. Very often the most interesting as well as the most visually interesting things to photograph are the ordiary. I'd spend some of your time there looking at the sights ...
  • Replied in lens help!
    +1.. If you wanted the convenience of a zoom, I'd get one that's more in the wide angle to short telephoto range rather than this long telephoto one for the kind of stuff that you shoot. If not, ...
  • Nice photos... but that first one really has a particularly unique alien sort of quality. I like seeing macros used for my artistic type photography rather than just the kind of documentary/nature ...
  • ... that there's no accounting for taste.
  • Yes... I dig Robert Motherwell too. I grew up near Washington DC and would go to the art museums there and in NYC with my mother, who's an artist. I remember likening these huge, brash, absract ...
  • Thanks John... That photo of the wall was actually a crop from a larger thing that had some old chairs and such lower in the image, on the ground up against the wall. I couldn't really get that ...
  • I have an m4/3 system and I really researched it before I bought. it really seems to be the best combination of small size, high image quality and options for bodes as well as lenses. The major ...
  • Really nice shot... It well captures the vastness of a place like that. Great tones/processing.
  • Created discussions A couple of recent images...
    I liked the texture... part of an ongoing project documenting the local tree population...
  • Replied in my thoughts...
    For many years, I never much considered using a "normal" lens. It always seemed to me that changing the perspective from what I see to something wider or more telephoto is what made using the ...
  • If I ever got into shooting film again, I think that I'd want to use something medium format. 35mm looks so rough to me these days (though there's better stuff and probably better technique than ...
  • Replied in My thoughts...
    it seemed to me that Aur was spouting off some very naive and wrongheaded information in that last thread, for which I was more than happy to counter with my own thoughts (sometimes Ifeel like I ...
  • Really nice photos... of the dogs and lots of other subjects too on your site. I really like the idea of this kind of work too because I really love dogs (i'm more ambivalent about cats) and like ...
  • I'm pretty sure that with any camera that shoots RAW that any kind of filter really only works with the JPEG files. A RAW file by definition really only holds exposure and white balance settings. ...
  • I think that the first photo is the one that's from film... then again, I think that the example isn't really the most dramatic B&W look... if it were grainer, more contrasty, higher ISO film it ...
  • Well said.... and I agree 100%. A camera as well as a computer and the software used to manipulate the images taken with that camera are all just tools and as such they can be used to create ...
  • Sure, if you're looking for the simplest way to make a clear image with no clipped highlights than there's no advantage to going with RAW... assuming that you're sure that there's not going to be ...
  • No I really can't... not with anything that's a localized adjustment. Also, even the way that I deal with tones and contrast (global settings) is much more detailed than I think I'd be able to ...
