    Default Shorty's Photo Thread

    I've had my camera for a little over a year now, and it seems to be the right time to put it to use. I hope to put sample images of what I post in here as I photograph a little bit more.

    I am in no way a professional photographer and I don't really care to be one. This is all just for fun and I'm just getting started at it.

    These are just a handful of shots of flowery things outside my work.

    Oh wow. You are actually good at this. I don't know much about photography, but I think you could be a professional photographer if you tried.

    Aww, thanks, nik! I really just want to get better at it and the only way to do that is to practice.

    edit: I took some more tonight playing around with the settings and trying to figure out what looks good where. Used my dog as a subject and this is the best shot I got out of it. The second was my playing around with the zoom pointed at one of my posters. The poster is about six/seven feet away from where I'm sitting and the smallest text is about half the size of my (very tiny) pinky fingernail. I'm pretty impressed with the capability.

    Achilles is not amused, obviously you just got done telling him that he wasn't allowed to lick the camera lens.

    They're all very pretty though, i like the poster one the best.

    Very nice, darling! I love the tree picture, I think you caught that in a great light that makes the picture very crisp and delightful to look upon.

    Look I know this is meant to be all about the photographs but I really really want to see a grand airship ascent, at six o'clock!

    Get a time machine then, silly!

    edit: a few more from today~

    239 Hobart Ave is not my address. Don't even think about it, stalkies.

    Also I feel like atleast half of these photos could be programmed in as lame default Windows backgrounds. Don't care!

    Nice improvements on the second batch compared to the first. It's always good to experiment with black & white and contrast too!

    Thanks, Pete! I really, really love black and white photos - so much, in fact, that I have to resist and urge I have to turn many of my photos black and white because I'm afraid of making them pretentious somehow ;-;

    Oh man, I really abandoned this thread, didn't I! How sad.

    Playing with depth of field! Zizi is my subject and this is the best shot I came up with.
