    Through the eyes of a child

    1,2 &3 really show what a difference perspective makes. When was the last time you were nose to nose with the mailbox? Or that close to a rock or a leaf? Patrick 1990 Mustang LX 5.0 Hatch 2013 Jeep Wrangler on 37's.

    Daily Essentials-

    You know its funny. As madly popular the OPO is online; I've never met anyone else in real life who has even heard of it much less owns one. Next time I will try a different approach to it completely. The more I go back the less I like this image. Total time from setup to the shoot and post...

    Daily Essentials-

    lol it was an edc shot. If I get to carrying multiple guns per day I just need to move. The lighting was my biggest issue. It was next to a window but not quite enough light so I added a lamp which cast harsh shadows. Then I tried to position the lamp above the subject angled downward; which...

    Daily Essentials-

    I've been meaning to do a shot like this forever and never seem to take time to get around to it. C&C welcome but not necessary. There are flaws- I rushed the shoot too much. click for larger in flickr

    Shot of a shot...

    That would have been cool, but I didn't want to get too close to the camera and get into the picture. I was actually taking a long exposure shot when I did this one

    Shot of a shot...

    So long exposures can be dull waiting, but I did do this while I was waiting and thought it was pretty neat. This was taken with my OnePlus One of my Nikon D7000 & the Lee Filters Big Stopper. See what I sea? by patrick.thrift, on Flickr

    Good to know about lens; maybe it was a fluke with a tough lighting situation. Thanks for compliment

    New Stuffs! Lee Big Stopper, Tokina 11-16/f2.8

    So I recently sold a camera and a couple other things on ebay and took the cash and reinvested it into more gear. I got a really good deal on a Lee Filter foundation kit+ the Big Stopper, and I picked up a used copy of the Tokina 11-16/f2.8. I've taken a couple shots here and there but with...

    Wide Angle Lens Recommendations

    That makes it much more difficult then. I suppose I would look at the Nikon 10-24 or similar; but I doubt that is within your $500 budget...

    Wide Angle Lens Recommendations

    I just bought a used version of the 11-16 tokina on eBay. I got the original version (no built in focus motor) for around $350. You can get the version 2 which includes the focus motor built in for approx $100 more.... In the few test shots I've done I am tickled to death with my purchase

    Lee Filter System questions

    Which is what makes it a difficult choice for me. I'm sort of inclined to purchase a single filter of each and see what comes out of the bag most often for a while then go from there; but I'd want to buy an odd # not found in the sets (like the .45 or .75) to save money long run by still having...

    The red door

    I get it's all about the door; but the blown out highlights around the door are quite distracting. Maybe a set of bracketed images would help

    Exploring downtown SD at night

    Visited for a week back in Febuary-- beautiful place. My only disapointment was Scripps peir had beyond awful weather the day I made it down there; but the rest of the trip and the city are amazing. I spent a week with camera in hand; nearly 1k shots. La Jolla; Balboa Park; downtown was it...
