Anyone into photography?

Post by Beowulf » Tue Aug 31, 2010 7:29 pm

Its been a hobby of mine for a bit, and recently I got to play around with a Nikon D90 with a 17-55 f/2.8.

What kind of shots do you like to take? Me personally, I always gravitate toward candid moments of people. Those big beautiful shots of wilderness do nothing for me, same with those close-ups of urban city life. Its all about people :up:

Some stuff:

I like getting close ups of people. Candid shots are always great fun too xD. Kids are always interesting to take pictures of imho.

I also like taking photos of interesting things around me.

I have a gallery here of my favorite photos (oh geeze do I need to update that O: lol) but here's a few picks from some of my galleries:

I'm a big fan of candid shots. I hate overly staged photos (except in cases like Weddings etc, but even then you still want a solid foundation of natural/candid shots).

I don't do a lot of photography myself but I do work on a lot of photo manipulation / digitial touch-ups.

Without spamming I'll just mention that I'm always looking for new stuff to work on so if you have anything you'd like touched up let me know. Still building up my portfolio.

I've been shooting mostly with a 55mm-200mm lens but just picked up a f1.8 55mm prime i've been in much need of for a long time.

I would be into it more if I had a decent camera. I do what I can with what I've got though, haven't really taken any new shots lately. Might try to get out soon and do that.

I love sunset shots. The only annoyance I have now is that if I can ever see a proper sunset here in the city it isn't spectacular enough to take a shot of. One of the things I miss about living near the country in Kentucky.

BTW, those are two nice looking hookahs! I'd love to be drawing on them :D

I do mostly convention portrait photography. I just modified one of my cameras to infrared only so that should be fun.

I LOVE taking pics of run down buildings, junk, and decrepit shit. Problem is, most of the stuff like that I've shot has been 35mm film, so I'd have to scan some stuff for you.
