    National Museum of the United States Army - C&C please

    I went to the new US Army museum today and plan on going back maybe next week. The building is pretty modern in it's design and I'm just curious if anyone has recommendations on how to better photograph something like this. I think this was my best shot of it. My photos of the inside weren't...

    Park Trip

    I made myself go out to Greenspring Gardens Park this morning. This was probably the first time I've gone out to take photos in nearly 4 years. I'm rusty and definitely made some mistakes (failed to notice that somehow my camera got switched to JPEG instead of RAW is just one of them). The...

    Which lens???

    I've been reading through the forums and guess I'm not searching the correct words. I am curious how big of a difference getting an "L" lens is. I am currently bouncing between the Canon EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM and the Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L is USM Lens. I know the 24-105mm will give me...

    Upgrade opinions needed - upgrading from 70D

    I've been very out of the loop, and out of practice, the past several years and have decided it's time to consider an upgrade and get back out there. I currently have a 70D and have been debating between 2 options - work on upgrading my lenses and invest in some EF lenses then get a FF camera...

    Yongnuo Wireless Flash Triggers?

    Does anyone have any experience with the YN-622C-TX and YN-622C RX's? I have been looking at them on Amazon but am not sure if I should get them or if there's a better option in a similar price range (1 controller and 2 receivers for $125). I will be using it with my 70D and 2 YN-568 EX II's...

    Recommendations for a small point and shoot

    As the title says I am looking to purchase a rather small compact point and shoot. I normally use my DSLR but like having something in my purse with me at all times. I like having one for things like unplanned detours to the Great-Grandparent's for the kids and I like being able to get updated...

    A few from the Pittsburgh Zoo

    These are a few months old but thought I'd post them. I can't figure out what is wrong with it but #4 just doesn't look "right" to me but I can't figure out if it's me or the photo (still having very slight vision issues). I am still working on getting back into photography after my horrid...

    Best way to check a lens for damage?

    Any recommendations on the best way to check a lens for damage beside the obvious looking for broken glass? Do you think a camera shop can test them? I was in a major wreck with my camera bag that had all my extra lenses in it in the back. Was put into the wall while I was doing about 60 by...

    Old West VA State Penitentiary & Mothman

    I took my oldest, Emily, to the Old West Virginia Penitentiary in Moundsville, WV last Monday for one of their photography "tours" so she could get some photos for her AP Art class Art Show next month. Below are a few shots I got as well as one of her with the Mothman statue in Point Pleasant...

    New tripod and head needed

    Hey, I've been gone for a long time - first I was just busy with life then I lost my best friend of the past 20 years (he was more of an overprotective brother/son/spare husband; to say he was my best friend is an understatement - even my husband said we were more like an "old married couple who...

    Great Dismal Swamp

    Below are a few photos from a recent trip to the Great Dismal Swamp. Any input would be appreciated. I've been away for a while due to just too many things going on in life and severe tendinitis and bursitis in my shoulder (I had about 6 weeks of physical therapy and may still need surgery...

    Natural Bridge, VA

    Just wanted post up a few I just took. This was the first time I have messed with the in camera HDR mode on my camera and I haven't yet had a chance to do any editing (in my car going home). Anyways, I was able to get rid of the little ones for the weekend so yesterday I woke up and decided I...

    First film photo in about 10 years - got a lot to re-learn

    Well, here is one of the photos I got off of my first roll of film in nearly 10 years. I have to say I am definitely spoiled by digital and being able to instantly see my results and make the needed changes. I'm going to need to get a lot of practice. I think I probably should have opened the...

    My little one and her dog

    I was finally going through and adding labels to my photos when I came across these. They are from December 2009 when my middle child, Dale, was about 15 months old and our dog Benny. There's a whole set of them of her just crawling all over him and using him as a bed and he is tolerant of her...

    Books or sites on Film Developing

    Can anyone recommend some good books (ebook preferred but I'll get DTB also) or websites to learn about setting up a small darkroom and developing film? I haven't used film in 10+ years but have been thinking about getting a used medium format camera to play around with for something new (and I...

    Sword - Recommendations Needed

    Below are a few photos I recently took for my Dad of one of his swords. I need recommendations as to how I could get better shots of it. My main issue seems to be the lighting, I have one speedlight available to me. The problem I have is obviously the reflection of the light off the metal and...

    Tangier Island - C&C

    I'm more than a little behind in processing my photos (not much motivation lately). Anyways, below are some photos I took about a month ago on a trip to Tangier Island. It was extremely cloudy as a storm had just finished moving through earlier in the day. 1. I know the sky is pretty...

    Just got a deal I couldn't pass up on Cokin filters

    I'm up in PA today visiting my in-laws and suckered my hubby inot taking me to the local camera shop. I was looking for a case for the few Cokin P filters I currently have. They didn't have a case but the manager or owner (not sure which) asked if I used the Cokin P filters and if I did that...
