    Some portrait-style attempts...

    Thank you! That's good to hear! :D

    Some portrait-style attempts...

    Thank you! Yeah, they need to be cropped and have something done to the background--but I was mostly going for expression. I use Typepad for the galleries. I have the top level account ($11/mo) and you can create multiple photo galleries, they can be linked from your journal(s) or not...

    Some portrait-style attempts...

    Keep in mind I was more focused on pose/composition than...ahem...other stuff. These are taken with my 20D with the kit lens. The ones with the red outfit were taken with a window camera right (the blinds were down but they are translucent and let a glow through) and all of them have the...

    Canon D20

    I've only had mine a week or so, but I'm in love. I definitely am going to get the 50mm f/1.8 or f/1.4 and one or two other lenses. I was not blown away by the quality of the pics with the kit lens and using Auto, but I'm just figuring out the manual settings and am much more pleased with those...

    I got it.

    Yeah, I am having trouble with getting the pics to my computer. I know it's my laptop's fault--it wouldn't recognize my other camera either. I did buy a PC card CF card reader but it's REALLY painfully slow so I haven't gotten most of them onto the computer yet (it's takes 40 minutes to get a...

    What a decision

    Btdt! Tell me about it! Less than 4 years ago, I paid as much for my 4mp Canon G2 as the Rebel XT costs now! C'est la vie, I guess! Ya know, it's a tough, tough decision. I've been wrestling with this one for months and finally I bought the 20D (rather than the 350D) last night. (Have...

    I got it.

    Thanks, I will! I am already worried about wearing it out. It's amazing that I can take shot after shot after shot...

    I got it.

    Egads, no! I carried $500 in my wallet for a couple weeks and was a wreck about losing it. In fact, I did lose it twice and luckily found it. I left it on my bumper and it was still there when I got home! I'm too flaky to carry much cash!

    I got it.

    It's sitting here on the table next to me. It's so fast! I took the battery out of my G2 and popped it in and WOW! I cannot believe how quickly it (a) focuses (b) responds and snaps the pic and (c) is ready for another pic! So the evening started out with me setting out to compare and feel the...

    Is my new sig OK?

    Not bad....just a tad too small but my eyes aren't that great, LOL! Would work with updating every couple weeks--I might try it. Or maybe I'll just make her pic my av! I kinda think she's reeeeallllly cute! ;)

    Canon 50mm f/1.8 II vs. f/1.4 USM

    Thanks for the input--great article too. It's a tough decision. The main part that has me stalling is the quality of the "bokeh" since the f/1.8's is not supposed to be as nice. Throwing a wrench into this whole thing is that the guy at Ritz insists that I should not get a 50mm lens for...

    Is my new sig OK?

    And dang, those sig guidelines are a sticky in this very forum. I feel very dumb now. :blushing:

    Is my new sig OK?

    I don't think it can be resized--it's one of those generated things from lilypie.com . But that's OK. Really. <sniff>

    Is my new sig OK?

    :hail: My ticker is 400x80. I guess it's going, LOL!

    Is my new sig OK?

    :er: LOL...um...you caught me! It's there now.

    Is my new sig OK?

    I just pasted it in from another board and I am not sure if there are length/size/image restrictions here. I looked and I can't find that info (I am sick and have a headache so forgive me if I missed it!). There probably are since no one has big fancy sigs. I won't post with it until I hear if...

    Putting together a portfolio...what equip. should I invest in?

    Oooh, now why didn't I think of that? My older kids have a couple of really large ones (from Land's End, they were sold as "nests" I think) and they are great for propping the baby in (supervised, of course!). Great idea!

    Putting together a portfolio...what equip. should I invest in?

    LOL! What do I fume over not having...hmm...everything! LOL! OK, so I've got the new camera covered, at least, since I know which one I'm going to get. I don't have anything else, so I'm starting from scratch. Good idea on the bouncy seat--and I *just* Freecycled our's! Darn!!
