We also need a photography subforum. Where can we talk photography really? Computers? Ot? If the parents can have a forum, we photogs should be able to get one too :)
i agree
all my photogrpahy related questoins about lenses n such all end up in the electronics forum

joined the flickr group..would def like a photography forum
seeing how the 'post ur best picture' thread has been a constant update..i think it would be a good idea

besides..rfd will prob be able to get some sponsorship for the photography forum from henrys or something

I'm down to learn a lot more.

Unfortunately my stupid camera I JUST bought refuses to take pictures. Had Henry's send it back yesterday.

It's a Pentax IST-DL DSLR.

When I first started with my wireless setup I used strobist.com

Very difficult to master flash + ambient. Also a lot of fun though.

Being a Strobist reader will cost you a ton of money. :(

we should probably put what camera we use.

i realize any camera can make beautiful images but if we can list everyone's cameras then perhaps we can refer to people who have the same brands to tlak about more technical aspects

i use a Nikon D70

Ummm it really depends. They have a really good article which explains what you can manage with on a budget. I'm using a 580 + 430 + 420 which gives decent light. I find that a lot better esp when you are doing outdoor jobs. No need for outlets or chords. You can go for the Vivitar 285HV x 2 and fire it using non-pocketwizard triggers. I think you can get away with spending probably $350 or so. Not bad considering you will typically pay $1/watt when you buy real strobes.

So, who's going to Nuit Blanche? is it worth it?

There is a Caribbean fair on Dundas square this Wednesday from 8am - 8pm. i will be going there around 5 or 6. if anyone of you can make it there let me know. http://www.caribbeanweek.ca/calendar-of-events.asp

We can also setup a trip to photograph the lantern festival.

A trip to one of the parks in Toronto for photographing the fall colors.


Btw, I have a Nikon D40 and my beloved F80 film camera. I have the 18-55 kit lens for D40, 55-200 VR, 50mm 1.8D and 28-85mm F80 kit lens.

I know this is short notice, but I just got asked to shoot a soccer game on sept 25th for my university newspaper. Im nervous, and im not really sure what im getting into. I've shot for a 'sports photography company this summer but that was just single/team shots. I've never done pictures during games or practice before.

Anyone wanna help me out with some pointers?

Thanks for the link

I have a d50, sigma 10-20 4.0, nikon 50 1.8, nikon 70-200 2.8
The university should have some equipment that I can use. Hopefully they will have a x2.0, because i doubt they will have anything in the 400mm range.

^^ I think I will use two bodies, makes sense, and definitely save me time
