Everyone's Photo Portfolio, Purlease!
« on: October 08, 2006, 11:01:36 AM »
Just had a thought, I want to see how good everyone here is at photography  :Thmbsup:

Post your flickr, zooomr, or other picture service page/portfolio in this thread, so we can all gawp at everyone's creativity  :D

Here's mine to kick off: http://www.flickr.co.../photos/emotivemedia

(Psst.. Thinking of starting a DC flickr group, yay or nay? :) )

Thank you, nudone! It's a lampshade in my flat with the picture 180'd and a few effects to boot  8)

Do you have any out there? Oh and also - do you think the Flickr group is a good idea? Maybe to include screenshots or something...  :)

er, i've nothing to share photo wise - maybe in a few months time - so, i'm not really the right person to say if a flickr group is a good idea.

it sounds like a fun idea to me.

That passion flower one reminded me of a Red Pikmin at first glance.


EDIT: I just noticed that you can see a reflection of their eyes a little bit underneath their eyes. It's like little ghost eyes. Spooky!

<3 pikmin

In my youth I was quite the photographer, I seldom so much as dabble any more -- but I'm fond of my observations of the ol' spiders back when I was in Norfolk; Our property is pretty nice too, but has nothing to do with the photographer :)

Some very nice shots Redhat. I particularly liked "LonelyWood" and "From the ground up". But all so small. :( Is that just because I'm not logged in at flickr? If so, screw those bastards. :D

Here's mine, no size limits! (although I did post most at small-ish sizes for copyright and bandwidth reasons) I got my first camera (digital) about 2 years ago and have since taken about 20,000 shots. So this is a small sampling, and really only about 10% of what I consider to be my "good" work. I started going through my photos a little while ago and posting the ones I liked, after some editing when necessary. But I didn't get very far. So more to come!

Oh yes, and my equipment. After much research, and based on some extensive and fairly difficult requirements, I eventually chose an Olympus C7000 Zoom - a purchase I am quite happy with after almost 2 years now (the C7000 was not technically my first camera purchase, I bought others to "trial" first :D). It has quirks and flaws to be sure, and is now showing its age (which is why I'm now looking at a Canon S3 IS), but it has served me well. I believe I'm ready to start toying with addon lenses and filters, but due to various annoyances with dSLR's (what do you mean no movie mode and no composing with the LCD!?) I will not be going that route yet. But I really want to get a polarizer and neutral density filter (graduated and normal both), which the S3 IS does allow, while still avoiding the hassle, bulk, and expense of dSLR.

Oh yes, and as you'll notice I *love* macros. The S3 IS does macro down to 0 centimeters - you can literally touch the lense with your subject. :D

Anyway, more people post your galleries! :)

P.S. Nice rainbows and spiders Allen!

heres mine from the "Fotokreis" (click on "zur ├╝bersicht" if you want to see other member's photos)

They were all taken this year, but havent been taking many since the start of summer.

Liked your buildings Redhat - nice light (or lack of same :) ) in all the biuldings, in & out.

Yeah, and nice halloween pumpkins  :)

& loads of nice photos there Oshyan (make me miss the sea, I grew up about half hours drive from it - now about 7hrs drive, but I do live in beautiful countryside here so I usually dont miss it!)

I really like the "BodySilk" image (is that a photo or a vector image?)

Click on an image you wish to see, the dedicated page for that image loads. Then just above the image click "All Sizes" and you will be able to go up to something like 3000x2000  8)  Thanks for the comments!

Ah ok, thanks. I don't see why they don't just make the mid-size version clickable to get to "large" size. But oh well, now I know. :)

BodySilk is vectory -- I was a technique experimentation.  It was a solid black box, sliced for form -- more negative than positive space.
