    Getting ready for my annual trip to the American Southwest.

    My normal travel gear has been my trusty Gx85 (took a Gx8 one year, but the IBS was so much better on the Gx85 I changed), Pany 14 & GWC1 (Makes it a 10.5mm according to my PL8-18mm) and the Oly 75-300II. I was thinking about taking my G9II or Gh6, but after looking at my Gx85 images for the...

    My Visual Diary: turning my photos into art

    As a kid, I drew regularly with graphite pencils - wild animals, mostly, from photos in books and magazines. Over the years, the urge to draw remained, but the motivation to start has mostly eluded me. From time to time I'd get bad GAS, and buy some more pencils, and draw a few things - gum...

    Hey, New to the forum. I am looking for anyone that can help a guy with no photo experience trying to get his first metal photo produced. I have some photos from a disney trip that I'd like to get made to hang on a focal wall. I asked ArtBeatStudios what to do with two picture files I...

    My two-year anniversary

    How synchronous. I randomly checked the date on which I joined here because I was wondering which photos I may have already posted from my back-catalogue. To my surprise I saw that (yesterday) it's my 2-year anniversary here! Thank you to everybody who has supported my images and added...

    Consigned to the rubbish bin of history - what will become of our images?

    A rather sad sight at the flea market this morning got me pensive - the red slide bottom right is marked "navorsing" which means 'research' -

    Just a little brag

    I'm very proud to see my photo from last year was used in current advertising (I knew I recognised it and did a search and found it now) I've just finished up shooting the arrivals at the finish of this year's Cape 1000 Rally, editing to make the deadline to upload my 50 selected best in an...

My main interest is wood turning and when I started it was mainlt turning bigg-ish bits of firewood...

    New member, old photographer from Cambridge Ontario

    I have been looking around for a little while and decided to join. I took up photography roughly 50 years ago and transitioned from film to digital in 2002. I have a fondness for primes. In the analog era, I was a hard core Pentaxian and my first DSLR was a Pentax. Ten years ago, I switched to...

    My husband, daughter and I did the usual Saturday morning traipse around the flea market and were discussing what to have for lunch on our way home.

    Offbeat Optics: Unusual, Uncommon, Underrated, Unknown.

    I often get asked for suggestions for lenses with a different look, or some that fly under the RADAR screen. Lenses that were "cult status" a few years ago have come way down in price- with patience. Just about any lens designed for a camera with interchangeable lenses can be used on a...

    Take my Picture, Please!

    What were they Thinking!

    The Photographer's Lounge is Open Again.

    YEARS ago, we had the "Photographer's Lounge" that was merged into Cameraderie. It was to be a more relaxed place, more like a Coffee Shop where people show pictures from their cell phones, back of a camera, on their computer, or pass Pictures around- and people Chat about them. Not a Critique...

    My learnings from shooting my first (very tiny) wedding as a solo official photographer.

    Hello. So this Friday I shot a friend's wedding, it was a very short event with only 8 and 1/2 people (their 2-year-old daughter was with them) at the local registry. There was no church or main event. Unfortunately, the couple was giving me low expectations and organization on what they wanted...

It was an extremely uncomfortable situation for me for a number of reasons (let's just say that in...
