    considering graduating from the "consumer"-grade camera league

    i'm looking for any suggestions on a new camera. i should start off by saying that i'm digital now and plan on staying that way :P maybe i'll go film when i have enough $$ to keep my own darkroom. what i've got now is a Minolta Dimage Z1, which i'm quite happy with, but i think i'm...

    hello! also, shipments to turkey??

    hello! i used to be here all the time a year ago, but i've been busy. too busy to take photos, even (at the rate I used to). Maybe i'm back... ;) gotta say, i'm back on business. I'll get to the point: Does anyone know how to ship stuff from Albany, NY to Istanbul, Turkey? I've got a...

    the light of inspiration

    [Q] exposure settings and color richness

    i believe i heard someone on here say that they got better richness of color with high f-stop and low shutterspeed (better than vice versa) i experimented with it a little, and it seems like it might be true. photos not edited except for resizing and compression, of course :wink: f8.0...

    feel that brick texture

    first off, i meant to post this 10 hours ago, but i lost my webspace password :shock: i think this shot needs some kind of change, but i can't figure out what. i did all my normal ps stuff to it, and i kept comparing the altered version to the original, and the original kept winning! this...

    dangerous x-rays?

    i had a thought... i'm going to italy next semester. when i get on the plane, they'll use some kind of x-ray or something to scan my stuff. anyone know if this type of scan would damage a digital camera? i know it's not good to point a digital camera at the sun, so could a penetrating scan...

    archiving photos to cd

    i couldn't find the thread where people were discussing how solvents in markers can eat through cd's, so i make a new thread :) i just want to suggest that if you're digital, and you have a lot of photos burned to cd's, re-burn em! not only am i avoiding the evil solvents, i'm getting out of...

    digital iso question

    ok... my digital camera has a mechanical shutter, and settings to change the shutterspeed and aperture size... that makes sense, but why does a digital camera have a range of iso settings? :? isn't iso all about chemical stuff? what changes do different iso settings affect in the making of...

    bentley microstation?

    the "photoshop versions" thread inspired me to ask you people about this. kind of a long shot, but i don't know who else to ask. does anybody use or know someone who uses bentley microstation? it's a cad package, but has a million other functions. what i'm trying to find out is how the heck...

    is there a posting ratio...

    i feel like i post too many comments about other people's photos, and not enough photos of my own. but you ppl's photos are all so great :shock: i feel like i have to pick a real winner before posting a photo. any comments on this? i just need to get out and take more cool photos, probably.

    the moth saga

    i almost ran this guy over in my car, but i came back and carried him to my porch for a few photos. he was a good subject, though the lighting was... night. at one point he crawled up to my shoe. i got maybe two shots of his wings spread out, and then it disappeared! i looked all...

    wrong breed of dog

    my black lab looks like a dachshund! larger i think it has to do with a combination of his posture, the sinkiness of the dog bed, and maybe the shadows. something to give a sense of scale would have helped too. i didn't notice until someone else showed me.
