    @ COOP - I don't know where it went, but I'm glad it's back.

    Small Change

    Hmmm... I'm not sure what that is, but it is a nice photo of it anyway.

    Now -HOLY SMOKE!

    I have an Eos Rebel film-style camera my pop gave me; as soon as I learn to work it and aim it properly, and do the f-stops and such, AND make photos that don't suck, I will post them here.

    It probably won't be in this incarnation of this thread.

    Missed this thread!

    I'm hoping to do some modeled photography soon. I got the taste for it in September and want MOAR. Anyways, here's some construction that was going on.

    I've been doing a photo duel with a friend in Bulgaria with the theme of phobias:

    I'm really hoping it wasn't my fault the previous thread was closed for the mention of winning bunnies... I feared the cuteness may have been at fault.

    Some beautiful fall days here in Maine that begged for capture. Hope you city-slickers enjoy =)

    I recently got a Lumix GF1, which is not only a sweet little camera, right between a point-n-shoot and a DSLR, but can use almost any pre-digital lens, with the appropriate adapter ring. This was shot with a Leica 35mm/f2 Summicron M lens. A much cheaper way to go than spending 8 grand on a Leica M9...

    I wouldn't call a 35mm Summicron cheap... It's more than 3 times the price of the GF1 :). I'd love to get one (GF1) for when I don't want to bring the DSLR with me, but I suspect I'll keep using my Canon and my trusty old 55mm 1.4 Voigtlander for a while (picture below).

    When you're used to fast prime lenses, it's almost impossible to go back to compact cameras. I love my LX2 but I can't use it anymore unless it's in broad daylight now. The GF1 with the 20mm 1.7 seems to be a great alternative to heavier setups. They should just add another pancake (between 40 and 50mm would be perfect for me) and I'll start saving money.

    @Rachael Some friends gave me a small box of teeth for my birthday one year. They were apparently from the kit of a former dentist that showed up in a resale shop. I still get a bit creeped out when I set them up to shoot, I tend to refer to them as "artifacts of pain"

    I have a new portfolio site!
    (The supremely wonderful Rachel Young made it for me.)

    I would obviously be thrilled if you checked it out.
    It has places and people! (And some of the people aren't even me! Amaaaaazing! But .. uhh... most of them are. Heh.)
    And sequences of figures relating to my obsession with death and decay and decadence and religion and things!

    I put some care in to the ordering of things, but I like to imagine that it holds up well if you just click wildly as well.
    So do what you like!

    oscillateur: What I meant was that the GF1 is a cheap digital body for my already-bought-and-paid-for Leica M lenses. (Elmarit-M 1:2.8/28mm, Elmarit-M 1:2.8/135mm, 35mm/f2 Summicron 1:2/35mm third version, Summicron1:2/50mm first version collapsible)

    I LOVE my M6, and I am really, really lusting after an M9, but it's hard to justify plunking down 7 grand+ in these uncertain times.

    Agreed that fast primes are the way to go. The Lumix 20mm/f1.7 is just lovely, and I should be able to use my Leica D Four Thirds 25mm/f2 with the GF1, once the adapter arrives in the mail. Leica will be making a 40mm prime lens for the micro four thirds system, BTW...
