you just took those this morning? no fucking way...
Those are nice. Congratulations on being old school.
Wow, those are really, really nice.
Holy crap coldstart, those are seriously INCREDIBLE. Wow wow wow. Those are pictures I would hang in my house.
awesome freakin' photos and congrats on 1,000. you are one of the good ones on here.
Ah, San Luis Obispo . . . one of the most beutiful places in the country. The central coast is a place I could live easily as long as I had access to a jet that could get me to SF, NYC, and LA quickly.
amazing pictures. what kind of camera do you use?
Awwww, thanks everybody. I'm using a Canon 20D with a Canon 28-135mm IS. Even with the IS, I still have to use a tripod because some of those were taken before the sun had come up yet. I also like to do lots of more experimental/artsy stuff too, i.e. digital Lomo and cross processing.
Sorry for the photo bombardment :P
Does anyone else do artful photography?
Coldstart, you continue to amaze. Bravo sir, you are an excellent man.
Yep. Once you start using IS lenses, you can never go back. :P They tend to cost quite a bit more but it's worth it. I guess if you use a tripod all the time then you wouldn't need it but 99% of the photos I take are handheld.
BTW, since it's almost New Year's, I'll mention this. I got involved with a "365" group on Flickr last year. There are quite a few of them with different purposes. With some, you are supposed to take a picture of yourself everyday (I don't like these and besides, that sounds boring), and others where the object is to just take a picture, any picture, every day of the year. I was doing good in 2008 up until August or September and I fell behind and never recovered but it did get me in the habit of 1) carrying my camera absolutely everywhere, 2) being more observant of the world around me and, 3) improved my camera weilding skills many times over. It's a lot of fun and a good challenge for anyone interested in honing their photography skills and the neat part is that you have a photographic record of at least one part of your day from every single day of that year.
