Finally purchased a decent digital SLR !
I want this to be a place to share some of the pics of NYC I'll be taking,
while relearning how to take photos without film.
Very nice. Looks like you're having fun already.
I recognize this from the walkway along Pier 57 -- one of the few crusty places left along the west side waterfront ...
(I saw [heard] them there last Saturday afternoon.)
Right on both counts- the drummers are often there on weeknights as well
Here are a few shots from tonight.
Last full harvest moon to fall on the first day of autumn for the next 29 years!
I'm overwhelmed, scumonkey. I recognize some requests. Tripod is paying off? Photoshop stuff is prerogative of an artist.
Thanks- yes the tripod is making things both a joy (better pics) and a pain (more security hassles), but well worth it.I'm overwhelmed, scumonkey. I recognize some requests. Tripod is paying off? Photoshop stuff is prerogative of an artist.
Your requests should pop up here now and then, as i find the time to visit the spaced out areas they are located at.
I don't know what kind of sick puppy but...what kind of sick puppy spends more than 100 bucks on a camera?
Any professional artist or photographer who can use a camera to make money for paying their bills!
One can easily spend more than 10 X $100 for a truly high end digital DSLR camera,
and If you want to enlarge pics to any decent size, a cheap point and shoot won't cut it.
(not even with all the photoshoping in the world- just not enough pixels to go around).
I agree paying Leica prices can be ridiculous, but this Pentax (a brand which I've collected
lenses for over 17 years) cost way under $1000- the average starting price for a low end professional model.
