    I graduated in August Sheri, don't feel old... especially since I should have graduated about 2.5 years ago.

    I graduated from college in May

    Thanks for making me feel ancient, dudes.

    You lot think you're old? Blimey, I graduated almost 8 years ago.

    I look at some of the photos in these threads and think 'I wish I'd been learning to work a camera properly while I was still a student'.
    Especially now, since it's dark when I go to work and dark when I leave to go home - I want to take photos in natural light goddamnit.

    Still, at least my time in education was well spent doing other stuff instead
    watching daytime tv :|

    In other news, I now have a 50mm f1.8 nikon lens, so I'll be playing with that for a while :D
    I'll post some photos taken with it after the weekend probably.

    I just got my first digital camera, a little PowerShot SD850 IS, with the idea that a DSLR would be large enough that I'd never take it anywhere and, thus would never get any cool shots. The inability to shoot anything higher than ISO400 without tons of ugly noise is making me reconsider, but... it is nice and small. And ISO200 and lower has decent IQ. It's my first camera since college, in which I used a nothing-too-special 35mm SLR, black and white film, and the campus darkroom. Oh, to have free access to a darkroom, again...

    First, a toast to the new thread (taken for my cocktail blog):

    Then, my favorite nature shot, so far:

    And finally, some kitchen tools:

    Took some pictures of geese today.

    It really is kinda lame that our school only has the developer for B&W photos, and since I don't have a DSLR that restricts me fairly heavily. Rural photos are so much about color, and I found it really hard to take interesting shots. I was supposed to be taking pictures of Bison but they weren't there. Ah, to be a photographer.

    As soon as the bison finally show up I'll make sure to scan the photos and show you peeps.

    Thank you! Yeah, I've been fairly unimpressed with the IQ. The above shots were on a bright day, at ISO80, so that's as good as it gets for the SD850 IS. I look forward to being able to afford a DSLR. I notice Canon announced a new Digital Rebel, to be released in March. I'll probably snag that.

    I like the color version a lot, actually. The clearly-define light that's cast from it is neat. Was that done tweaking levels in post, or were you able to take it that way?

    I can't remember the last time I didn't tweak something in Lightroom. I basically kicked up the contrast a bit and turned the black level up a lot.

    All of the above were taken with my Fujifilm S6500 fd. Unfortunately it's not an SLR, but for a camera of it's price range it's extremely good value. I love doing macro shots - sometime this year I might replace my camera with it's bigger brother, the S9600, and get a whopping huge lens for better macro shots \o/

    All comments and criticisms are very welcome.

    Your pictures are about twice as large as they should be for posting here, especially when you post like a dozen at a time. A few are pretty decent though, notably the third and fifth.

    Poorly shot photos of my 16 hour drive from Portland to San Francisco. It usually takes me about 9 hours. Going through the pass at Weed, CA at night I couldn't even see the road because it had turned into one big snow drift in the 50mph winds of the blizzard. This was all in my 16-year-old Honda.

    Later on I saw maybe a tenth of the cars that are in the second photo stuck in snow drifts or crashed at the side of the road.

    I know, I'm sorry about that, I only linked them over from my DevArt account... I'm too lazy to upload them to Photobucket >_>

    I like the second one, it gives me a feeling like i'm falling over backwards...i'm not feeling the first one so much tho, I really want to see more of those windmills...I think if you wanted to do the panorama thing, you should actually do a panoramic shot...as it is, maybe at least include some space above the tips of the blades that got cut off. Of course, I have no idea whats outside of the frame...

    I didn't really mean for that to be taken as a panorama type thing. The original shot does have tons of empty space above the blades, but I cropped it intentionally to cut off enough so it was clear that was my intent. I'll see if I can work with the original and find something I like. I was also potentially going to resize it smaller and use it as a sig, though I kind of like mine now.

    In all fairness, I'm pretty fond of your first one. It reminds me of comic panel (and I mean that in the best way possible). At the same time, it is rather hard to take in all at once but the more I look at it, the more I like it.

    Interesting that you would get that impression. A lot of my stuff I heavily alter and put into somewhat abstract comic compositions, for a little project a friend of mine and I have been working on. Though for some portions I stick with the typical horizontal three panel style, I guess the visual appeal is kind of spilling over to my 'normal' stuff.



    Because I believe in flooding the photo thread all at once.
