Any Photographers Here?
 
Someone mentioned that on most forums there are always threads about photography.

Since I've been known to take a few photos, I thought I'd post a couple.

Who here is into photography?

What do you like to shoot?

What type of camera do you have?

Paul G 10-01-2011 09:19 PM

I'll start!

I shoot Nikon. I have a Nikon D700. It's an amazing camera especially in low light! At Morongo I was shooing ISO 3200-5000. And the noise is super low!

I shoot a lot of children and families, a few Pow Wows, and as most of you know I love shooting at Disney World.

i was really into photography back in my younger days…until my best camera and lens were taken by some theif. then when i went to replace them earlier this year…i was intimidated by all the new digital stuff and ended up not buying anything. now i am lacking the funds…so i guess i will just stick to those ‘toss away’ cameras.:confused_

The best camera is the one you have with you! It's not the camera, but the photographer that creates compelling images!

I'm not much of a stills person, but I have been known to shoot 12 gigs a day at a powwow.

My first DSLR was my beloved Nikon D40, which I just sold on ebay for $300. Now I have a Panasonic GH1, hacked for better video (LOL, I'm such a nerd to hack a camera). The Nikon still beat the pants off of the Panny but I want it more for video. My next DSLR will probably be a Nikon or a Canon, depends on whether or not I want it to do video; Nikon if not, Canon if yes.

AF, you should look into getting a basic Nikon DSLR, they are really amazing in low light and their lenses are amazing. Personally I think they take a better picture than Canon and the others do.

As for what I like to shoot. I like shooting powwows (of course), but for more artsy stuff, I like taking pictures of decaying industrial stuff. I used to live in Bethlehem near the old Bethlehem Steel mill and there was just so much to shoot, it was great... and now they built a casino around the complex!

Haven't shot any yet, but I love looking at abandoned things like amusement parks!

you know…after seeing the shots my two adult children take with their cell phones, i thought ‘wow, those look great! and so easy to take and re-take!”. now, i just need to buy one…uh, one of these days. most likely i will be the last person to own one. **laughin**

I shoot with a Pentax K-X. My first 35mm was a K-1000. It died, but I kept the lenses for it. I am so glad I did because they work great with the new Pentax. Pentax users are kind of rare, so I would bet that I am the only person who replies to this thread that shoots with one. :) One thing about them, their old lenses will work with the new DSLRs, unlike a lot of other companies. LOL!

Toolbox 10-02-2011 02:18 AM

To get that luxury you have to spend big money with Canon and Nikon. The reason that I love my Panny GH1 so much is the fact that it doesn't care what lenses are on it. All I need to put is an adapter ring on and I can use any brand, even C-mount and 35mm motion picture lenses!

I've had several cams over the years...but my fav is my Minolta SLR which I still use when I want to use a multi-media for my art and my new fav is the Sony A330. I can actually switch lens from the Minolta over...the auto features don't work but I've never really used them so no big deal. I had a Nikon D2Hs but it didn't survive being in 48c desert conditions. I also had a Canon EOS digital rebel but I gave it to my kid when she went on 6 months sail around Africa... never got it back...lol

Been into photography since i was 12, miss film and darkrooms terribly

Borrow parents cannon every once in awhile, alot of pics taken with phone

Saving for purchasing something nice, and also something mediocre. MAny pics taken while in passenger seat and hanging out windows so dont want to use $800 camera for that sort of thing :)

The family, our dog, nature, clouds, sunsets, big sky country are some favorite genres to capture.
