Congratulations Tiggertea - just seen your ticker
A few pictures I took at Drayton Manor last week in the zoo.
I used to have a small photography business (portraits). I gave it up to focus on my son, and because most photographers in my area charge way too little to compete with (but that's another story lol).
I shoot with a Nikon D700, but shot Canon for a while too.
I'm surprised there isn't a board on here dedicated to photography. Do we just post in this thread?
A recent photo of my son this Halloween.
Shot with my 70-200mm: f/2.8, 1/400, ISO 400
Such a lovely photograph!
Ooh I could be at home here! I'll come back later with some photos
Our latest arrival
Oh can I join? not as good as all yours as I havnt a clue how to use my camera but I am getting a new lens for xmas though. So I like to see how others take their pics to.
DF shut up, you're brilliant! If you go on youtube there's loads of instructional vids, and I have some cheat sheets I can email you if you like!?
Probably so thick I wont be able to understand them lol My dad had to teach me how to do an indoor shot the other day. There are still functions I didnt know existed on my camera. I want to take more pics with blurred back grounds.
A good lens for that is 50mm 1.8.
If you learn about using aperture priority mode too you can control how much is in focus etc a lot better than auto modes.
cool. I learn by trial and error I should really go on a course or something but I have no time and ways to get to these things these days.
The Internet is a great teacher! I also highly recommend the 'for dummies' books - I keep mine close when figuring out something new with the camera. They do one tailored to most makes/models.
I really do need some literature to read on it,. I think i will get a dummies book. I could do so much more I think.
I hate suggesting the "for dummies" books in case people get offended , but I swear by mine. Plain English explanations of just about everything you could want to know. Perfect!
Not offended at all I think it suits me LMAO. I dont know what to post a pic of we should have a theme every week or something.
I completely agree.... the 50mm 1.8 is great and only just over $100!
The shallow depth of field really makes portraits pop!
I use my 50mm all the time, especially in the studio! We should have a theme, maybe we could have a competition type thing, so the first week could be open theme, then we all vote, and the winner of that chooses the next theme!?
