My second year of college is starting today. I'm a music major but for an elective I'm doing a digital photography course, obvious right? The class I'm about to go to is something like "camera operation and using Adobe Lightroom". Boy, this could get rough... :roll: :lol:

Never thought the words "I'm happy to be back in El Paso" would ever cross my lips.

Is thinking the new vegetarian cookbook my missus has just bought is missing one key ingredient....

And should be renamed to something like .... A book of really nice side dishes.... :?

Muahahaha, yeah, sometimes you feel like that. :D I like it. But I'm a vegetarian myself (since 1994). Usually you can just use "normal" recipe but use several vegetarian alternatives (classical soybeans / tofu or seitan and so on). No problem if you are using enough spices.


I think that the air is too dry here. Waiting for the rain.

You don't even want to know Ruben... :twisted:


I'm thinking... it's been too long since I last posted here. I still love photography, though I wish I had more time for it, and I still like discussing our mutual hobby, so let's get things fired up again!

YES janern and robbon44! I hate seeing someone taking pictures in prime sunset colors with the camera on full auto so there are using the flash and killing the light

Oh yes janern, robbon44 and HikingMike, I also agree with you three. I've seen many times people using really expensive cameras and flashes shooting a landscape in auto, not having a single clue what they're doing. Honestly, I've seen the pictures that these people get with those expensive DSLRs and they get about the same results I can get with a $300 point-and-shoot.
Why do people who don't know a single thing about photography have the best gear? It gets me mad seeing them misuse it :x

My old boss from Alaska is about to do a cross country trip. He started asking me about cameras, I told him I would only help him with his decision and purchase if he agreed to a series of Skype lessons so he doesn't become like all the others we see :lol:

When most bought the first DSLR they did not have a clue, me included. It takes time to get off A & P mode. I park my camera on P mode as advised by Gordon in the tutorials for that unexpected opportunity. My Petrel recently posted in the bird section was P mode, no chance to decide what setting to make as it flew past with only one chance to take a shot.

I would like some rain, 38 days without it.

Edit.

That shot was printed today in our local paper as photo of the day, I must be getting close to 40 shots printed. :D


Cheers
