    My new baby. A Nikon F-75 35mm SLR with a Tamron 28-80mm lens. It uses something called...film? ;)
    Cant wait till this spring for road trips to the Hill Country and West Texas, maybe as far as Big Bend. So who else is a "snapper".

    I haven't seen a "real camera" in years. :D That's a nice Nikon. I own a 35mm Nikon as well and I think Nikons are one of the best if not the best for film photos. I bet you can't wait. ;)

    I like photography a lot although its digital. We ought to make this a picture thread too. This is a couple of some recent ones I took.

    But nothing beats film.

    If you like "old" cameras...Here's my old baby a Olympus OM-10. Still works like the day 30 something years ago when it was made. :)

    I'm not up on the technical side, but I love photography, especially black and white.

    I used to spend hours upon hours in the darkroom. My camera of choice in the old days was a Canon A-1.

    I have a Kodak digital camera that I'm still getting used to.

    My Daughter is 16 and is getting into photography big time. We bought her a digital camera last year and she got hooked. She entered a coupe amateur contests and she has won a first place and two third place awards. She also got Photoshop Elements 7 and Premiere 7 for Christmas.

    She wants to be a photographer and she loves doing landscapes and wildlife but also does some great portraits as well.


    Do any of you have any advice for a teen starting out in this area?

    I'm "into it" a little bit. Very amateur stuff. I have a Rebel Xsi with a few different lenses. I'd love to be able to spend the time taking "artistic" photographs, but unfortunately the only time I get to is on vacations, gatherings, etc. And often then it's only on the fly, so I do the best I can. I've ventured past the "auto settings" on my camera and have come to realize how poorly the automatic exposure settings work. That's a fun experience when you finally "get it" in regards to exposure and can play around with it. I'll try to remember to post a couple photos later this evening.

    Great pictures, keep the coming!

    There is a place out in West Texas where every year hundreds of people gather to photograph the sky. It's like a festival of sorts. Does anyone know where and when it's held?

    Awesome thread. Love that caterpillar shot Rowdy.
    Film is great, I have a Minolta that I've picked up again, but I've been shooting with a digital Fuji/Nikon set up. I'll be picking up a D700 or a D3 soon enough.

    Macro shots are tough but can at times be the most rewarding.
