Awesome! I might have to pick your brain! Im a total NEWB! I have to finish reading the manual!! And Step out of Auto a little more often!

JRiverMartin, A Point and Shoot is MUCH cheaper then a SLR!! And More portable. I still love my little kodak P & S!


Redsirenn, I just bought a used lense On EBAY. Waiting for it to arrive. I only have a Sigma 18-50mm atm.

Yeah. I shoot art nudes when I can get sessions in with the models. I work generally in B&W, as I love the play of light and shadow on skin and the way the curves and angles dance with the viewer's eye.

At this time, I have a basic digital camera with plans to upgrade to a model with a hot shoe (so I can use a swivel flash unit. I use clamp on light fixtures with CFL photo bulbs so I can set up lights most anywhere. I'd like to get some better fixtures, too (especially a softbox), though my clamp on fixtures work decently.

If we can get the secured forum for photos, I'll post some.

I like to shoot in black and white too. But with my kids I love colour too!

I shoot everything in color and convert it to B&W after the fact. That allows me to keep any color image where I find the color works better. That happens rarely, though I reallyreally like it when it happens--provides a bit of variety in my work.

The things I looked for within my budget:

--resolution: I needed at least 7 megapixels so that I could make large prints, even when cropping sections of the original image;
--lens: couldn't afford dSLR with separate lenses, so had to look for decent built-in lenses; optical zoom is the key element (digital zoom does NOT cut it) and went with 10x.

I regret not getting a model with a hot shoe, as built-in flashes just don't work well for what I do.

For my next camera, I'm requiring a hot shoe and at least 9 megapixels. If I can swing a dSLR, then I'll do that, otherwise I'm looking at 12x optical zoom on built-in lenses.

I had the replacement for the K1000, though I'm blanking on the model number. Nice machine. When I picked up my digital, I gave the Pentax and all my lenses to a friend who was in need of a new camera.

Thats generally what I do too. I have a gorgeous shot Of my Daughter that i love in colour but as a B & w its stunning! Im a fairly ok VERY keen Photoshopper ( I actually use Paint shop pro X) So i love to be able to fiddle with things.

I lost my Photoshop when I upgraded computers and the change in OS. I used an older version for years and years. I changed from Mac OS 9.2 to OS X and that meant my Photoshop was no longer usable.

I've been sort of trying to find a replacement for it since, though I want freeware or shareware. I think GIMP will end up filling the bill--open source freeware. The couple of others I've tried just haven't done it for me.

So I do little processing, just what the Kodak software allows for. That's enough for most of what I want to do at this point, anyway.
