How many shutter bugs do we have around here?

Speak up!

What kind of gear do you own? What type of pics do you take? Are you digital or film?

I own no gear now but I used to have a manual 35mm slr and really enjoyed taking photographs. Mostly nature photos. My camera died and I haven't replaced it. I plan to go digital and get an SLR and a medium zoom lens, a wide angle, and a regular lens.

The main reason I haven't yet is because of the expense. I want to get a good printer and software for prints. I used to do darkroom work with black and white and an enlarger but I really don't and won't miss thatprocess much.

What kind of photography do you want to do?

when you buy a printer - make sure you get an HP. I recommend the Officejet Pro K5400 - Officejet Pro 8000 - or Officejet Pro K8600 - they have separate color ink cartridges. Saves money in the long run - also more efficient - a great interface - and top quality printing.

Thanks. That's information I can use.

I have a lot to learn about digital photography. My wife just got a small digital camera and I put the software on the PC and have figured out how to take an image and download it to the PC. Really cool the way this works.

I've got a few images now on the PC and will set about learning what the software can do. It appears it can do quite a bit to improve or enhance a photo.

Of course I'll bet it's like film, if it ain't on the film, or in the file, you can't do anything about that.

(I've seen some cool photoshop stuf though.) :D

Paint Shop Pro is an easy to use photo editing program that has lots of great features and isn't all that expensive. Not as full featured as Adobe - but a hell of a sight cheaper and easier to use.

Aren't candid shots a blast? I have soooo much in blackmail material collected over the years . . . . . I started uploading some of it to facebook and have already gotten monetary offers to make some of them disappear :cool:

I'm already into photography, I shoot Canon. I have a 50D and a 5D Mark II.

I'm building a studio in my basement which should be complete in two weeks. They have it all framed and they're doing electricity and drywall this week. Next week we'll paint and do the floors and I should be done!

I want to get more into studio photography, but right now I do mostly outdoor/landscape shots. Here's a couple from this weekend. It was nice out so I figured I would run around town and get some shots - enjoy the weather a little.

newshutr, I shot with a guy a couple weeks ago that had an Olympus and it was a cool camera. Before meeting him I hadn't had much experience with them. It took great pics.

Post some pics if you have them to share.

Nikon F4, Nikon N90.
I don't "do" digital photography, although I have a Nikon digital camera, it is for "snapshots", not "photographs".

I shoot primarily slide film.

Film is cool, I sold my last film camera last summer in our garage sale. It was a Minolta.

Now that the DSLR has come of age I'm comfortable shooting digital exclusively. I never had a darkroom or anything. If I did, I might still be interested in film.

How long have you been into film photography? Do you have a darkroom at your house?

Years ago I sold my Volkswagen Beetle for $200. I used the cash to buy a Minolta SLR. I forget the model nbr.

That camera brought a lot of captured joy into my life.

My favorite all time picture (among so many) was the back of my little daughter's head, while being held by her mother, gazing at a growling Polar Bear at the Frankfurt Zoo.

It was an extraordinary moment, and I considered entering the image into a Photo contest (or more) but I simply was unable to recall the aperture, F stop, film, and other details.

That was a very very cool picture. Obviously I enjoy talking about it.

Oh man, a long time.

I got my first "quality" SLR, a Pentax K-1000 in 1980.
Since I shoot mainly "chrome" films, I never got into the darkroom thing.
