    Restarting a longrunning thread: this is for the photographers, pro/am, dedicated amateur.

    Introduce your work, or give us updates if you've been here before.

    Try to keep photos down to two per post? Or else the threads get a bit unusable for some.

    Links to your site or archive are always good, too.

    @edward I just realized that that's the same bathroom from inside and out isn't it? That's pretty cool. I especially like the interior shot.

    @Lexmachine: I like the first one! What went into producing that shot? Was there any post-production involved?

    EDIT: Some golden oldies from my Japan trip of 2006:

    @Lexmachine - Thank you! The difficult part was going from rooftop to rooftop & down the fire ladder into the apartment, it was a great lighting day.

    As always, I use manual- I still have no digital, and I will always mention if I edited.

    Have been trying to do more self-portraits lately, which is a great way to test things out for actual shoots.


    Oh, and I went on a road trip in the desert and stumbled on the best (abandoned) saloon ever:


    Flickr is where my stuff lives. Most of my modeling shots are also there.

    I am def. an amateur. I did a lot of photography in college, but I've never had any formal training. The original photography thread inspired me to get off my butt and try taking pictures again . . . I've had a lot of fun doing it.
    I think these may have made it to the end of the OMGITOW post for last month before it closed, but I'm happy with them so I'm going to post them here. . .

    I shoot film & digital, all Leica, with occasional forays into Polaroid-land.

    My Flickr

    Amateur enthusiast is where I would place myself, thoroughly uneducated in the art of it, but unable to resist the urge. We're actually just a year on now from when I first started to get more obsessive about it, thanks in particular to the RNC coming to town last September.


    Someday I'll move up to a proper DSLR, or perhaps a Micro 4/3, but for now I'm quite happy with my Lumix FZ8

    A delayed thanks to razrangel & Jess for their compliments on the old thread. Sorry for the delay.
    Here's a couple more "Straight" photos from the old school days.

    i picked up the camera for the first time today in over a month.

    I just processed and scanned (well the lab did, anyway) a bunch of color film I shot while racing last year's La Carrera Panamericana in Mexico. I've been pretty uninterested in the film vs. digital argument,(I like both) but after shooting both on this trip, (sometimes even shooting the same shot with both) yeah, digital is a heck of a lot more immediate and convenient, but man, film just looks so much better.

    Camera nerd stuff: Leica M6 - 28mm - f2.8 Elmarit-M lens - Fujicolor Pro 400H

    COOP - I saw the magic characters 'M6' and started drooling like one of Pavlov's dogs... I rented one about 12 years ago for work and it was the most marvellous thing ever, the negatives that came back were incredible, when you looked at them under a loupe the detail and resolution was amazing. One day... one day...

    Used ones can be had, I won't insult your intelligence by saying cheaply, but certainly better then retail. You can get good deals on excellent film cameras now, thanks to the fact that everyone shoots digital now. Mine was gotten in an art trade with a pro photographer who now shoots everything digital.
