    Do you, as a photographer, ever catch yourself when you're telling someone that you're "going to shoot so-and-so today" and get worried that people will not understand you mean 'take photos of'?

    Or am I just weird?

    Hey, btw Toby, I've been meaning to tell you I love that avatar. Is that a self-portrait? Let's see the full-size version. The lighting is awesome.

    i was looking at a book in the library, about big telephotos which
    use a rifle-stock like support.

    just the thing! for a politically sensitive photo-opportunity,
    in a jumpy part of town. :shock:

    John, thanks for the comment re: the avatar. that actually happened by accident one night when i was reaching for the timer on the shutter release- cussin it out cause i thought it was not working and just as i reached for it, off it went. was on like a 3 min time interval, and my time sense was kinda beat up at the time. :wink:

    anyway, i'll post the larger version of it in the next day or two...

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Actually MrSid, i would have second thoughts if you said 'I am going out to shoot so and so....' I am just taking it from this context:

    Yeah, thats really cool.. My first impression was that you were a boxer your something with that stance!
