    D70s and lens Purchase

    Hello, everyone. I'd appreciate some help. I have a chance to purchase a used but nice condition Nikon D70s and a Nikon AFS 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 ED-II lens. The asking price right now is $285. From what I gather, the D70s is a capable starter camera, which is what I am looking for. But, though...

    John Deere Museum

    Here's a little series I took at the John Deere Museum. There's a lot of green! I am very much the beginner, so please feel welcome to comment. Taken with my Pentax K1000, developed by the local big box mart, Photoshopped a small bit (cropping and balancing) by me. Thanks for looking...

    A stroll through my favorite cemetary. . . . I took the shot with my Pentax K1000 and had the film developed at my local Big Box Mart. Unfortunately, my camera settings are lost to the ether. I cropped the original--making it skinnier, and trying to move the leaf from the center to...

    Parade Prep Two

    Here's another one from Detroit's Parade Company Thanksgiving Parade Preview. The shot was taken with my Pentax, then I got crazy in Photoshop. A bit of crop, some level work, then the Watercolor filter. Comments and edits welcome. Thanks.

    Parade Prep One

    Any comments would be most welcome. This image is open to edits, if you feel so inclined. I took the shot with my trusty Pentax K1000, then auto-leveled and cropped a bit in Photoshop.

    Neither of these shots turned out exceptionally well. I am especially disappointed by the monkey shot. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Looks Filtered Somehow?

    A few shots from my latest foray into the park came out looking like this, what I would call filtered. Not sure what else to call it. It was a sunny day, but I was in fairly thick woods. I am using 400 ISO Kodak black and white loaded into my ebay-obtained Pentax K1000. I got this...

    Newbies First Shots

    Hello, one and all. Below you'll find some shots from my first roll off my PhotoForum-recommended, ebay-purchases Pentax K1000. Comments are appreciated, but please be a little gentle. The shutter speed was set at 250 for all of these, and I adjusted the f-stop to put my exposure meter just...

    Color Processing of Black and White?

    After consulting with the fine folks of this board, I biught a Pentax K1000 from Ebay. So now I'm getting ready to take the first shots. I went into a fine camera shop for some film and I was presented with this choice: "True" black and white film which can only be processed at select...
