Two words; 'knickers' and 'twist'.
I'm not a professional, I upload my photographs to share them with like-minded people. I prefer a free hosting service so if Flickr want to tag my photographs, what's the big deal? You should see the data Google collects and stores from your every move...
Hi guys, I posted much the same question over on the sister site and it's this; does anyone know what one of these light rings is worth? It comes complete with controller for dimming the output but no chromatte backdrop.
As I always say, if not for buying and selling camera gear I'd be unable...
What type of listing is this?
What are you trying to sell/buy/trade?
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 w/14-42mm Lens
What are your prices?
Where are you located?
Where are you willing to to ship?
I'm selling this GF2 which is in mint condition (has the...
I finally got the chance to get out and about when the sun shone brightly today. I didn't want my first outing with this lens to be a disappointment so I waited till there was lots of lovely natural light:
Just my opinion but I think that 'newbies' would come away from that website shaking their heads and vowing never to mess with DoF! I took one look at the sliders and thought 'to hell with this, I'm off to shoot some frames'. :hmmm:
I bought a used Olympus m4/3rds 40-150mm lens the other day and the rain finally let up today so I popped out and grabbed some 'snaps' to test the output. The images aren't challenging nor particularly good, I just wanted to share.
I have a severe disability. I cannot render what my eye sees onto paper. That's why I'm a photographer too - I have the knack of 'seeing' compositions wherever I look and all it takes is for me to raise my camera to my eye and voila!
Good to see another mu-43 'refugee' make the journey. I'm still an active member on both sites myself - variety=spice of life and all that. :thumbup:
Btw, really enjoyed your 'hockey' set over there. It looked too cold for comfort!
Today I did exactly what I said I would - I took no photographs.
The Sun shone brightly and the sky was the deepest blue but I gave it a total body swerve. Instead, I cleaned my camera and sensor thoroughly and gave my favourite lenses a good scrubbing with a wire brush and Dettol. Honestly...
Well, I'm happy that I completed the challenge but I managed to confirm what I knew all along - I'm not a very good photographer. I'm okay with that though... I won't ever be doing this stuff professionally so I'm quite happy to bumble along receiving plaudits from my friends and family who...
Done and dusted but nothing special for the final day unfortunately.
I'm just glad I kept my promise and saw it through to the end. Well done to those of us who took part whether you reached the finish line or not - it's been a tough month. Now I can pack a few more lenses with me when I head...
The penultimate photo on the penultimate day is a sight for sore eyes. Not the image itself, just that it's the second to last of this challenge which is not to say I haven't thoroughly enjoyed it (well, mostly). It'll be good to decide for myself whether or not I 'want' to capture an image as...
Having my G5 out and about with me every day is no hardship - I do that anyway. It's been a good experience as far as I'm concerned because some days (outwith the challenge) I don't find a single keeper from my efforts and this has forced me to look at my images differently and find something in...
Would you believe that Taggart quite possibly HAS walked up or down those steps?
It's inside the Pearce Institute which rents itself out for filming many Scottish films/television shows. You never know...
Well, the snow which was meant for the East coast of the States seems to have ended up on the West coast of Scotland. Horrible, wet, fluffy stuff which melts on contact - can't even get a decent snowscape out of it. Roll on Spring!
It 'looks' a lot like my home with the books/knick-knacks so having been accused of living in a junk shop, I thought it might be one of those.
(for 'junk shop' read 'antique store' - we call them junk shops 'cos they buy junk and sell it as antique)
I know it's daft to assume but is this either your home or a local shop? Wherever it is, jolly well done. Crisp, clear image with lots of detail to catch my eye.
I do know that if I tried that here in Glasgow and it was neither of the above, I'd be running for my life. ;)
Thank you all for your supportive comments.
I am beginning to learn that sometimes, less is more. I have the annoying habit of trying to squeeze in as many points of interest as I can but this challenge has taught me that that approach isn't always the most desirable.
