    "I'm kind of a big thing"

    I don't post my pictures often, but this one just came out great. My daughter was putting on boots which gave her this model pose and expression (she did not do this on purpose... I hope). I don't think I will be able to top this picture of her ever. It is all down hill from here and she is...

    24-70 vs 28-70 worth $300?

    I just got a 28-70 f/2.8 recently for $740, but I may be having some buyers remorse. At first glance, it is in perfect condition optically, but I was wondering if a used 24-70 is worth the extra ~$300 in cash. Any thoughts. Should I just keep the 28 and be dumb and happy? Thanks for your...

    New to the addiction of dSLRs... Question on lenses.

    So I recently move on from my Sony DSC-R1 - which I still love because of that glass - to a Canon 2ti. I just needed something better in low light and more versatile with a snappier focus. I am looking to get a few lenses, but I want to be smart and spend slowly. Plus, I want the "honeymoon"...

    $250 dollars off D300S (Body only) with 18-200MM at Amazon

    Just ran across this on Amazon. If you buy the Nikon D300s (body only) and the 18-200 VRII lens you can get a $250 rebate. I know this is a pretty specific sale, but that is not a bad discount if you are thinking about moving to a D300s. Total price is just shy of $2100

    New Joby GorrilaPod SLR

    Hey guys...just thought I would let everyone know that Joby finally got an SLR version of their GorrilaPod. Seems to me this would be a great portable tripod as you can theoretically wrap it around your camera case when hiking. Not pitchin...just sharing... 50...

    This is just a random night shot. f/2.8, ISO800, 1/2s, handheld. I kinda like it... Not my best shot, but something about it stricks me nicely. Your thoughts.

    How To: Mounting Photo in Frame?

    Now I am not talking about the physical mounting of the pictures once you have a frame. I am talking about designing the pics themselves for printing and designing the frame to surround them so that the art looks the most professional. This is definitely a overall newbie question: are...

    "Shamed" - random zoo shot

    This pic is more of a snap than a shot, but I like it. I wish it were a bit sharper, but I was shooting through zoo plexiglass. There is very minimal crop and no PP on the actual pic. What do you guys think? Keeper or just a snap?

    Piglets are freakin cute...

    First off...these are not my pics, but they are too freakin cute not to share... I don't know if the story is true or not, but I would have loved to have a camera when this was shot. In a zoo in California, a mother tiger gave birth to a rare set of triplet tiger cubs. Unfortunately, due to...
