    My new airport roller for under 20 bucks

    I've been needing a nice airport roller for awhile. I can't afford the 300+ price tag for the think tanks. Had a roller backpack sitting in the closet. spend 6 bucks on fabric and 10 bucks on foam. I had stitched the entire thing since I don't know how to run the sewing maching (g/f tried to...

    Two quick shots from today

    Went out to shoot a few pics at a walk path today. Unfortunately, I forgot to grab the battery that was on the charger. I was just starting to get loose when I ran out of battery. I think I will return to this location though, had some good graffiti with nice lighting.

    I'm back

    Haven't been on this forum for quite some time. Basically, all my gear got stolen and I couldn't afford to replace it so I got out of the photography business and went back to my other trade in welding/fabrication. Well, cruising around craigslist I found a decent deal on a d200 with 4 lenses...

    Has digital created better photographers (old skool)

    I grew up with film. Both my father and grandfather were photographers. I held onto film as long as I could but eventually made the jump into digital with an entry level dslr (d3000). Now, all my older glass worked on the d3000, although it didn't auto focus, and my primes didn't even meter...

    gimp vs aperture?

    I'm giving my dad, who used to be a photographer but pretty much put the camera's away when digital came, my old d3000. I know he's not going to want to spend much money on editing software so my question lies in how good is gimp for basic camera raw editing? I may be able to persuade him to...

    retouching charge?

    I just got a call from an email from someone wanting me to retouch some photos. They said they have a photographer but he's not very skilled in photoshop and want to send the photos to me (with the photographers approval) for retouching. What would be a good base to ask for? I've never really...

    Did I make the right choice?

    I was shooting with a d300s and a d3000 as a backup. Well, awhile ago, my d300s took a flying leap from a balcony and I've been stuck shooting this d3000. My 2 options for a replacement was either 1 d700 and continue to use my d3000 as a backup. or get 2 d7000's so I would have a worthy...

    Realized I haven't taken many pics of my son lately. So stuck a strobe pointing up at the corner of the room, slapped on my 50mm and went to town. I'm using an old school MF 1.4 50mm and trying to keep focus on a fast moving kid is pretty hard! unfortunately, I did miss the focus slightly...

    replacing a background in cs5

    I've never really had the need to replace a background before. But, I'm trying out some new stuff. I've tried to make my selections 2 ways. using the quick selection tool and the refine edge. and using the channels path, applying the image, and using levels. Either way I try it, i'm getting...
