About me:

I'm on here for fun and info nothing more. I don't rise for trolls and don't look for perfection in my equipment because I know I can't replicate that in my photography.

  • Well I could reply my own post I suppose, if the Foto experts all a poor chancer like me to have ideas that is ;-) When I first met my partner we used to go to a park. After a about 12 month or so ...
  • Created discussion thread Would you, have you
    This bloke waited 2 years to get the photo he wanted, what have you done ...
  • How many got ? I've got about 12 cameras apart from my modern-ish F-X10 but they are all trash compared to your collection. Must be worth a mint.
  • Guessing that's not fujifilm as the colours seem muted, nice though it's like a wedding cake :-)
  • Here's his mate,
  • So I bought this 60D with had a crack on the LCD so I got it cheap. Then I found out Canon are not great with manual focusing and Canon do sell a aid for this but I thought I would try one of the ...
  • This lens was in parts on my bench 24 hours before as I cleaned the fungus from it. It's a nice lens and I'm sure the are some great images in it but I bit iffy on distance shots I think.
  • I don't, but then most my photos are with old lenses I can replace for less than buying a lens. In fact I take all the filters off the lenses I buy second hand. Point being if they have been on ...
  • Replied in Jupiter-3
    I think perhaps I'll choose a seafront walk, perhaps print a t-shirt with the phase "Can I take you photo" and hand each person a card with details of where the can view their portrait later :-)
  • Replied in Jupiter-3
    I think perhaps the best way to try is to go some big event where the are lots of people who won't notice you taking photos of them. One where the is likely to be some characters like a bike rally ...
  • I've got loads of those close-up lenses but I've never used them, I always forget about them and the extension rings too.
  • Replied in Jupiter-3
    Wish I could shoot in B&W, when I tried it I just ended wishing I had shot in colour and when I edit to B&W I'm never happy with the result. Mind you I think it's because I don't photo people, ...
  • Replied in Jupiter-3
    I would cropped it a lot tighter, around the woman & dog and leaving in just the 2 grouped bikes - square crop. I would also just crop the bikes in to one image.
  • Today I bought a camera bag with a Canon 1000n & a Sigma 35-80 lens for £7.50 Not the best lens in the world but it seems to work with the dog any way :-)
  • Created discussion thread Optomax 35mm 1:35
    Found this sitting all alone on a junk shop shelve today. For £4 I had take as I've not got a 35mm lens. The mount is a Tmount with an adaptall to FD converter. Well sort of, the FD won't lock ...
  • Ok so I'm not going to keep the topic live but I add a bit more today for £11.50 I only bought it for the lens because I needed an EOS lens. It got a film in it, I love it when they have a film ...
  • Anything over £25 is normally outside my price range :-)
  • WOW! I used to work for a water company and they used to photo all their broken pipes and clogged up system. Working in the IT department I was expected to buy, setup and train them with their ...
  • I can sell 2 of the lenses for the total amount I paid for all the others so not doubtful at all. Most the items on that table were £5, most I've paid for a lens is £25. One person's rubbish is ...
  • The are more thing unused than used because I've been buying for when I retire and been stuck in this flat without much room for 18 months. Currently looking for house with plenty of room :-) Just ...
