Yeah, I'm getting the same thing.

Anyways here is a picture I took of the ice before the Flyers game last night.

@doug: Well, you got to the rink early. Really early. Like, when was the pre-game skate? Half an hour after you took the photo? Just razzing you! :P Great photo though. Reminds me of the guy on Flickr who has lots of photos taken by other people of sports arenas on his favourites list.

:lol: I actually arrived 2 hours before the game started. Had to wait a while before they let me sit down in my seat, because they wouldn't let people into the stands yet. The photo was taken a hour before the pre-game skate.

^ n(._.)n "Youz the Flyers Super Fan here!!!". Heck, I show up at Canucks games with just about enough time to sit down...and then stand up for the singing of the national anthem. Well, truth be told, I do get to my seat as they're announcing the starting lineups.

Bringing this thread back from the dead.
These first two were taken with my Sony cybershot. Here is a picture of the building where I work. This one is of a railroad bridge I pass by on my way home from work. This next one was taken with the Sony a200 camera I bought last month. One of my cats.

^ Okay... So what is the loop in the bottom right corner of the shot of the bridge and your workplace?

My friend recently purchased a Canon Powershot SX10is camera. http://www.flickr.com/photos/beken/3312831383/ It's roughly the same size as my Powershot S5is but it can shoot up to 20x zoom (12x with the S5) and generates 10 megapixel images (8 megapixel with the S5). Yeah, I'm a bit envious but I'm not about to ditch my S5.

For all you photographers, I just came across this:

The Peeps in Places Photo Challenge. Deadline is the 13th though.

^ I wonder if Peeps are sold in Canada. Can't say I ever recall seeing them.

I was at Butchart Gardens on Vancouver Island last weekend and took a whole pile of photographs. I think I noticed early in the goings - zooming in with macro mode doesn't yield good results. To take photos like this one I stood about arm's length from the subject and zoomed in. Got decent results that way (I think). Oh yeah, I was using my Canon Powershot S5 IS:

I think you obtained great results that way... that photo inspires me to pick up my paint brush! I can't believe you never saw a peep. Maybe they don't have them in Canada... all they are is sugar coated marshmallow. They'll rot your teeth out. Personally, I don't like to eat them. Although, they are kind of cute. :? I just thought it was an interesting photo contest.

I (finally) updated my Flickr page with some photos from Studio Collective. Basically, all of the design students put their projects out on display. Unfortunately, I never set anything up, so you won't be seeing any of my work. Everyone else has some pretty cool stuff, and you get to see the studio where I work.

I opted for a small portable camera because I know that I won't carry around a DSLR at college, though ideally I would have spent the extra bucks on one of those. I have a Panasonic Lumix because they have Leica lenses which are the best out there. It's black because I like neutrality. The touch screen is cool but I don't really care either way.

Ah...you were talking about me.....

Here's my 35mm film gear.
Image

and a medium format film camera
Image

I take a lot of pictures, but do not make a living doing it.

I use my Canon SX10 the most now. Fewer lenses and equipment to carry.


Say....this is my first post here isn't it? I should go introduce myself....

I think I used my Canon SD1100 to shoot all the photographs in this set: http://www.flickr.com/photos/8936205@N02/sets/72157626313309752/. This was my "Day in the Life of" effort for March 20, 2011. There's a "Day in Life Of" group in Flickr which I'm a member of and I sometimes take the time to shoot photographs on the "dilo" day they pick.

I'm using some other equipment now. I have Nikon D3200 and as my standard jack of all trades lens, I have a Sigma 18-250mm zoom. It covers 90% of the pictures I take.

Image


For more specialized shooting, I bought a Canon FD to Nikon adapter. I mount my old Canon lenses and shoot manual. Here is the Nikon with my Canon 55mm F1.2 lens.

Image


Recently, I saw a Nikkor 85mm F1.8 lens that looked very nice. I might start saving some money and get that when it goes on sale (ahem...black Friday).

Oooo I'm a Nikon too, I don't have any pictures of my camera, but I have the D7000, and my lens of choice is my new nikon 28mm 1.8 lens. Its shoots in dark areas(where i shoot mostly) so nicely, and it gives light areas such a nice cinematic feel because of the depth of field.

(sorry if i nerded out a lil, i tried to keep it to a minimum, i went to school for photo and work at a camera store)

Early colour photography...http://happyplace.someecards.com/photography/this-beautiful-young-woman-in-red-bathing-suit-is-older-than-your-greatgrandparents/. As for the veracity of the claim that the photos are over a hundred years old, I don't know. I'm guessing glass plate photos could possibly retain their colour vibrancy well if kept in good storage conditions.
