Huge update on my flickr *Go check it outcoughcoughcough*

Highlights:

#1 - looks good

#2 - would have looked a bit better if you got more of her, as well as changed the colors around a bit so her skin didnt wash out the rest of the picture

#3 - would have played around with the brightness and stuff on this one as well , its kind of under exposed you its hard to see a bit [might also just be my moniter]

Hey Doh, serious question. Have you ever photographed weddings? I'd like a good one and you're one of my favorite photographers I've ever seen work of, so you'd be awesome.

1 - icon_biggrin.gif

2 - Well, I really didn't have time to frame it properly icon_razz.gif "hey, watch this imma do something cool" gives me like 15 seconds to prepare.

3 - It's suppose to be dark. it was an extrememly dark room and all I really wanted in terms of detail was the green paint so I put the ISO down and snapped. I'm pretty happy with the results.

I've got a cool idea... reply and tell me what you think.

Well, this thread in the forums is rather slow, with people replying only when others post images. Let's change that. Let's have some kind of photo challenge every week or something. Someone will post a topic or an idea for the "challenge" and then at the end of the week we'll post what we got from it. It'll give those of us a challenge who get bored with just taking pictures of their surroundings. Sound good?!?!?!??!?
Oh and....







Huge update on the flickr. check check it yall! here!

Just for fun and making other people happy icon_razz.gif

As for those Zips.. epic photo's. Definitely pro material. I guess it might've been better if #2 had less noise, #3 didnt have a weird bokeh effect on his ear and #4 didn't have (only) the softbox reflecting in the eyes.. but this very, very good stuff.

This is exactly what has been going on through the entire thread, and it's not the first time either.
You come to us for advice..you just spell out what you want to get, and then ask us if it is okay, and we have to explain why it isn't. That's the world upside down.. If you would just say 'hey guys, I have an X amount of money, what should I buy?' Then this would be over in 2-3 posts, not 2-3 pages.

Dude, you could definitely make a career out of it if you wanted to.

And now I need advice. So my current Telephoto lens is a 75-300 III f/4-5.6. Needless to say, it is very hard to get sharp/infocus pictures. The AF is slow, it has no IS, ect.

Can somebody reccomend a telephoto lens with reach similar to this *200mm would be fine, but 300mm is a great reach* around the sub-$500 range?

To throw it in..I get to borrow a Nikon 80-200 F2.8 for a while.

This is what comes out of it:



Just look at that DoF icon_razz.gif
I'm pretty happy with it. Thing is, this lens is as old as I am.. The Autofocus relies on my D80's in-body motor, It's a push-pull zoom. There's no accessories, no sun hood, nothing, the aperture ring and A/M switch make grinding noise.. and there's a clear scratch on the front element. But god the image quality is good icon_razz.gif The guy wants 500 for it, while this thing is not worth more then $400 at MOST. So it's going to be some serious heckling.




you want this lens *jedi hand wave*

HOW did I miss taht lens on amazon?! That's one of the ones i use at school for god's sake!

Oh & as far as that lens you're using goes.... even at that price, if it's over. You can't argue with images like that. Imo, it's the images that justify the price of the lens, not the features, or age of the lens. That's the reason I hate my 75-300. it is not worth ANYWHERE near the price canon wants for it. it produces bad images, and has no USM or IS to help me with low light stuff, therefore i always get blurry images at late-day time. (which is when i do most of my bird photography, or in the morning, which is almost the same lighting. lol)

I say go for that lens, if you can heckle it down lower than great, but with images like that, the price is well worth it.

EDIT: delima. My 16th birthday is coming up. My mom keeps asking me what I want to do. I want to travel. To somewhere beautiful. Somewhere where I can get great photos. Somewhere........... within the u.s. -___-. That wouldn't be a problem, except, well, my family doesn't have a lot of money, so it can't be expensive, or a really tourist-ish place. Ugh. I need help guys.
