Photography

Do any of you like to take photographs? Would you share some of them?

I am a bit random with my pictures... I'm not too good at it; but this one I think is rather cute; I took it for a food blog I gave up a while back. Now it's my Facebook cover.

Re: Photography

I consider myself an amateur photographer, but I mostly enjoy landscape photography. I take most of my photos when I travel, and I have an online gallery to prove it. I have a Canon EOS 550D (SLR) and two lenses (18-50 Sigma and 55-250 Canon).

There's quite a lot of shots I really like. Here's a small selection (some of them were business trips, I don't get that much vacation time). http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Wonderful pics, this thread is a very good idea. Here is one of mine which reminds me of Sherlock.

Re: Photography

Oh wow @TeeJay! You have a great sense of colour in those pictures and such great timing. I could just stare at them all day!

I love yours too @Susi that is very much Sherlock! I love London although all I have seen is pictures and movies!

Some beautiful pictures here - I'm so envious of anyone who can capture so much with the click of a lens
I love beautiful photography but unfortunately have no gift for it

I went to see David Bailey's exhibition yesterday in London - some stunning images there.

Re: Photography

Well, admittedly I did a bit of a colour/contrast editing on some of the pictures. Love your London photo, Susi. The light is amazing. I really need to go back to London some time. I've been there many times in the last few years, but only in a drive-through capacity when I landed in Luton or Heathrow and then directly went on to another destination.

Sometimes it's a little tedious to lug around all that SLR equipment with you, because it's bulky and heavy in comparison, but I'm always so disappointed by the photos I take with my small pocket digicam (Panasonic Lumix) that I gladly take the SLR along whenever I can. Once you have that high standard and know what SLR photography can do, the compact cams just don't compare.

Re: Photography

Gasp! Gosh I'm glad I started this thread now; So much beauty to look at!

I found this again; this is the road by my mother's house... this branch only flowers in May and I find it so precious when it does. Again, the quality is bad, sorry!

Also, can someone help me? I have a picture I want to share, but I fear it might be a bit too 'dark' and possibly triggering. Can I post a link with a warning or should I rather not post it at all?

Re: Photography

Can you not upload it somewhere else and then post a link to it rather than the actual photo? That way people can decide whether they want to click on it or not after you've warned them.

Re: Photography

Such fab photos everyone!

I adore photography!

My main accounts are at DeviantART -

http://forestina-fotos.deviantart.com/gallery/

and at FlickR -

http://www.flickr.com/photos/15421987@N05/

I like to take photos of flowers, gardens, nature and antique objects!

I'd like to show a couple of my favourite photos on this thread but all the options for smilies/image links etc seem to have disappeared! Anyone else having the same problem?

Re: Photography

Wow, spiral, amazing photos. Now I feel very inadequate... I love the dark atmosphere in some of your photos. Really great work. (I've also tried to take pictures of raindrops in spiderwebs, but somehow they've never quite come out the way I wanted. I have one that I'm okay-happy with, but I have to look for it at home cause I can't find it in my online gallery.)

Here, have some more insect pics:

Don't be silly! You have some gorgeous photos! I do tweak mine a little anyway. Enhance the colour a tad, tweak the lighting.

I love creating a sense of story/narrative with some of my still life photos. I love taking pics of antique objects - coins, keys, clocks etc - and turn the shot sepia to give a sense of time, There is a professor in the novel I am writing and the still life pics are inspired by his huge cluttered study/library.

Re: Photography

Lovely pictures TeeJay!
The nigara falls look familiar!  Unfortunately we didn't have ideal weather when we were there and it was really crowded... Most of my pics have much moist in it... And actually most of them I haven't even developed from RAW yet, shame on me it was in last June, I really should do this...

I also love to take photos, but not so much recently...

Sometimes I experiment with black and white filters. Here's a few from the Neanderthal Museum in Düsseldorf (kind of a natural history of evolution museum). The guy with the beard and glasses is a good friend of mine.

Re: Photography

Oh WOW Spiral; I feel so lucky somehow to get to see your photographs; you're a true artist! I love how the pictures seem to tell a story; I'm a huge fan of that!

TeeJay, your insect pictures are such gems, and I love the nature in yours, Zeratul



This is the picture I talked about... The thing is I don't remember taking it. But I do know it isn't what it appears to be; it's staged,,, I just wish I had used a better focus at the time. 

WARNING: this is not for everyones stomach and may be triggering to people with certain urges.

Awww! Thank you so much! That is what I try so hard to do in my still life photos - tell a story. Because writing is my main passion, I am always wanting to infuse (if that's the right word) some narrative into my pics. I want people to wonder what the story is behind the objects, who owned them, etc, and create their own stories around the keys and watches and other curiosities.

I took a look at your photo. I'm not too keen on that theme (no offense meant but I'm a bit squeamish when it comes to blood!) but it was very artistically done. The angle, and black and white, works well.
