there's a craigslist category for cameras and equipment. i've gotten a decent deal there on some manual focus lenses.

If i was more savvy about camera equipment, i might trust myself to buy used. When a photo friend commented that mold is an issue in used lenses, i thought, okay, i'll stick to new (on sale) equipment.

I hadn't heard about that before. How would you know if you had a lens with mold? (seems like a silly question - would it just inhibit the view or mess with the AF feature)

Freckle, i have no idea about the mold situation.

But i do know many of my local photog group have purchased lenses on Ebay, Kijijii, etc and been happy with their items.

i'm off to do some more food porn today - gotta love strawberry season. And well, chocolate, that's my year round food group.

Your food photography is amazing. Every photo I've seen has made my mouth water! Lol the detail and lighting is spot on.

I am a picture taker... with a passion for shooting any and everything. Because of that I'm trying to figure just exactly what I shoot best. . .

I have two flickr accounts.... professional stuff here and personal stuff here. I also created and designed my own website and you can find that here.

I'm new to the thread so I just thought I would introduce myself. I haven't read all the way through yet, but I will when I have some time. It's lovely to be in such creative company.

I currently shoot with a Nikon D90 : two lenses (though I'm salivating over a third right now)

I recently just had my first piece accepted to the Commonwealths Equality Dinner -- it was bid on and auctioned... It was just such a validating feeling! You can see it here.

Sorry for the excessive linkage... just thought I'd get it all out there!

ps... did I see something about strawberries and chocolate? I'll be craving that all day now!!

have a lovely weekend!

I am photographing my mama in her garden for Mother's Day on Sunday. I'm looking forward to it.

Off to shoot a recent HS grad. . . so excited, haven't posted my mums pictures to flickr yet, but I did post some photos I took at a Pet Expo last weekend.

Okay.. .so edit question... what is your edit style? Do you group photographs and then go through them? How do you stay focused when "wading through 500 images"? What programs do you use/like?

I'm a Photoshop nerd and will pull out the images I like and ensure that color balance is optimal and that an image is cropped the way I like. I do tend to over-crop because I like a tight frame (that just sounds wrong). I'm not a purist when it comes to my images, and if an image has potential I will tweak it (burn, dodge, soften/sharpen focus, etc) until it matches my vision. I would do the same when I was working on photos in the darkroom, so why not digital.

When a batch of photos is huge (like the 500), I won't work through the entire set. I will pull out groupings for specific purposes. For example, I shot many of local marching bands because several of my friends have kids in the band and I was shooting for them to have keepsakes.

Also, I'm incredibly picky. Out of that large set, I may keep or publish a dozen.

How about you?

I have a copy of Elements8 which came with my printer, but I'm still learning all of it's functions. A copy of Lightroom is on my (sadly ever growing) wish list. I currently edit my photos with GIMP and Picnik.

I absolutely love playing and editing a photographs; adding texture, layer masks, words, playing with curves (oooh la la), sharpening and softening. It all gets me downright giddy.

In order for me to process pictures for clients in a reasonable time frame I tend to do a quick run through and delete all those I am immediately unsatisfied with and then group the remaining images into locations or scenes. From there I'll time through each group and pick my favourites. I am also very picky but for me this means I will work and re-work a photo for hours upon hours. I am still learning when it's time to walk away from a photograph that can't be 'fixed'.

Very happy to see fellow shutterbugs in here.

Let's keep it active folks!!!

FemmeDyke - did you know you can get a 10 day free trial online, or have you already played thru a trial already?

I am a fan of many post processing programs. Adobe, Microsoft and Canon's own system. Depending on what my needs are, I like having many tools at my disposal.

Freckle - Did I miss the link to your lilac shots? ooooooh purple!
