    Re: Photographyreview: The People

    Sounds like a great project. I'd be interested in what you are including. I have done the bridges here in Fleming County of course. Some of my latest images are on a web site that I use for marketing photos. If you want to check them out you can go to www.printroom.com/pro/GoodingPhotography .
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    Re: Photographyreview: The People

    Very nice pics. Love the flowers and such. I see you have some pics of the Goddard (I think that's right) Bridge while it's being restored. Are they still in the process of that? Love your site. Would like to talk to you about that, but may do it in a pm so we don't clog it up on here.

    Wink Re: Photographyreview: The People

    I'm John, from Kalamazoo, Mi., retired, and I spent the past summer working out my D70 at Southwest Michigan Devil Rays games. I had 3 of my pictures (from 2004) turned into baseball cards. Also had a couple of pictures from this year published in At The Yard, a national publication about minor league baseball. Lately I've been shooting the fall colors and landscapes here in southwest Michigan.

    I love the third picture, great framing, tak sharp, and good DOF. Have you tried it in sepia? I think it would look better than the red. I like it a lot though.

    This was taken for me 3 1/2 years ago on my wedding day. This is on the back of our 3 acre farm. We both put on an enormous amount of weight in the preceding 6 months getting ready for this. Yes, those are all our dogs. Have I mentioned that we're dog people?

    Re: Photographyreview: The People

    OK, it's been a little over a month since joining and it's been fun and informative. I think by now you have learned a little about my style and attitudes. But since I probably know more about you (senior members) than you know me, I thought it only fair to spill the beans.

    So here goes...

    Name:
    Hideta (pronounced, he-day-ta)

    Meaning of handle:
    1) Denotes my upbringing during strictly film times
    2) Spent years looking through my trusty loupe
    3) How I feel after a brandy (or two) in the evening when I’m typically logged-on (but spelled the other way)

    Dorky PR club I belong to:
    None

    Location:
    Ohio, USA

    Born:
    Osaka, Japan

    Other places I've lived:
    Japan until age 4 ½

    Like to Retire:
    Alaska when the mosquitoes aren’t sucking and the black flies aren’t biting.
    Otherwise, to the set of The Waltons, or Newhart, or even The Little House on the Prairie

    Ethnicity:
    Japanese (with some samurai roots)

    Marriage/Family:
    One of those and two of them (kids)

    Languages I speak:
    English, Japanese, and a little German

    Education:
    B.S. in Mechanical Engineering

    Occupation:
    Business owner of a manufacturing firm, commercial actor and model (spending about equal time on both sides of the camera)

    Religious affiliation: None

    Political affiliation : None, but generally support the smarter candidate.

    Other hobbies: Sport fishing of all types, boating, traveling.

    How long I have been a photographer:
    Since the 4th grade. But seriously since high school.

    First "real" camera:
    Canon A-1 SLR

    How I found Photographyreview.com:
    Researching consumer reviews of lenses prior to recent purchases.

    Date I joined PR:
    Officially February 10, 2006; but have been reading the equipment reviews since September, 2005

    Favorite forum:
    Critique followed by Nature

    Photogatherings I have attended:
    None

    Favorite subjects:
    In order: macro, landscape, wildlife, people, travel

    Current Gear (Main):
    Canon EOS 10D
    Canon 24-85 f/3.5-4.5
    Canon 17-40 f/4 L
    Canon 24-70 f/2.8 L
    Canon 70-200 f/2.8 L IS
    Canon 2xII teleconverter
    Canon 430 EX flash
    Promaster, Spectrum 7 extension tube set
    Contax macro focusing rail

    Current Gear (Secondary):
    Bronica ETRS 645 Medium Format
    Bronica 50mm
    Bronica 75mm
    Bronica 150mm
    Bronica Extension Tube
    Metz 45 CL-4 flash
    Vivitar 285HV flash

    Current Gear (fun and family):
    Contax TVS II (35mm point-and-shoot)
    Sony T-33 (digital point-and-shoot)
    Minolta Dimage X (digital point-and-shoot)

    Why I prefer film or digital:
    Until recently considered myself a “purist” film shooter. However, I learned that I like spending time with friends and family more than in a darkroom. Digital offers unimaginable creativity, with which I have yet to come to terms. Consider myself as novice when it comes to using PhotoShop and have been limiting myself to keeping digital manipulation to a minimum.

    What I like about Photographyreview.com:
    Ability to share ideas and tips. Ability to see work by others that I would not normally see nor expect to imitate. Ability to read equipment spec’s and consumers’ reviews.

    What I am trying to accomplish with my photography:
    Instill conservation attitudes in people by showing the beauty in the natural world.

    A few of my favorite pictures:
    Some have already been posted in the forums and in my gallery. My best work is on 120 film and have not yet been digitized.

    and lastly, Me:

    Seems to be a group of intelligent folks with similar passions. Photo geeks?

    What I am trying to accomplish with my photography:
    Creativity

    A few of my favorite pictures:
    I have so many, yet less than 0.001 percent are capable of standing up next to some of the fine works I have seen here.
    I publish a lot on my website, but the topic is not photographic related so I won't annoy you by telling you my web address.

    Re: Photographyreview: The People

    I'll use this as my introduction

    Name: Stephen "Stillsky" Rudolph

    Meaning of handle: It's a long story, but it involves me, my best friend, and a web server.

    Dorky club: It's not a PR club, but it is dorky at times: National Association of Photoshop Professionals

    Location: Suburban NY, about 35 minutes from NYC.

    Born: August 31, 1981 in the same place.

    Like to retire: Like? I'd love to =P As much as I love NY, I wouldn't mind heading south to like Florida, or perhaps somewhere in Europe.

    Ethnicity: Caucasian, half Irish and half Italian

    Marriage and Family: Not married

    Languages I speak: English, some XHTML with a side of CSS, I used to know Italian.

    Education: I spent 5 years in college for jazz performance, couldn't afford to stay to finish up my degree (two transfers is just asking for trouble).

    Occupation: Full-time custodian, part-time freelance musician

    Religious affiliation: None, though at times I claim to be Erisian.

    Political affiliation: Haven't quite decided. I dislike both the republican and democratic parties right now.

    Other hobbies: Web design, watercolor painting (i'm pretty bad at it, but it's fun), reading.

    How long I've been a photographer: I wouldn't quite say that I'm a photographer, more like an enthusiast. I've been an enthusiast for a few years, but I haven't taken it seriously until recently.

    First camera: A Sony Cybershot (DSC-P52)

    How I found this place: I was looking for information about lens filters through google and this was one of the first hits. I'm a forum junkie, so I signed up immediately =P

    Date I joined: Today!

    Favorite forum: So many to choose from. I really enjoy the Naature Forums, and this place seems pretty cool.

    Photogatherings I've attended: None so far

    Favorite subjects: Rural environment type stuff

    Current Gear: Nikon D50, 18-55mm DX Zoom lens, and a handful of interesting filters.

    Camera I use most: My D50 now =P

    Why I prefer film or digital: I haven't experienced film, so I can't really say anything about it. I chose digital over film as a matter of convenience. However, if I could ever save enough money, I'd love to shoot film as well (but first I need more lenses for my D50, most of which cost more than the camera).

    What I like about Photographyreview.com: I haven't looked around very much yet, but it seems like a very informative and pleasant community

    What I am trying to accomplish with my photography: That's a good question. Right now, I'm just trying to take good pictures. Eventually, I'd love to fill my website with high-quality, artistic, and meaningful images.

    Some of my pictures:





    And then there's me

    Me, the whole me, and nothing but me!

    Name: Michael Riggs

    Meaning of handle: Nickname I got in high school track. I resemble Mel Gibson's character Martin Riggs in the movie Lethal Weapon. That is, if he was short, skinny, and his ears stuck out. Born in 1979. Bet you didn't see that one coming.

    Dorky PR club I belong to (if any): None, I'm might be too dorky.

    Location: West Des Moines, Iowa, USA

    Born: 9,2,79 Des Moines, Iowa, USA

    Other places I've lived: Southern California (if you count military life).

    Like to Retire: Someplace where my hayfever won't be a problem.

    Ethnicity: English, Irish, German, Norwegan, Cherokee (only in America).

    Marriage/Family: Not married. (Hint, I'm available!!!)

    Languages I speak: English, Redneck English-required when visiting family in Missouri.

    Education: BS in Business Management from Upper Iowa University '04.

    Occupation: Imaging Specialist

    Lifestyle: Lone Wolf

    Religious affiliation (if any): Methodist

    Political affiliation (if any): When I find one that works I'll let you know.

    Other hobbies: Running, mountain hiking, drinking, started in on stock investments.

    How long I have been a photographer: 5 years, right after my first trip to Yellowstone.

    First "real" camera: Canon Rebel 2000.

    How I found Photographyreview.com: Looking for a review on some gear. When I found the site a ray of light shun down from Heaven and I then knew the answers lay here.

    Date I joined PR: A while ago.

    Favorite forum: None, but the review section is top notch. Have not found another one like it.

    Favorite subjects: Wildlife, landscape, macro

    Current Gear:
    35mm:
    Canon Elan 7E
    Canon Rebel 2000 for backup
    Canon 28-105mm
    Canon 70-300mm IS
    Sigma 170-500mm (soon to be replaced by Sigma 120-300 f/2.8 DG and 2x converter)

    Pentax 200mm
    Pentacon 500mm f/5.6

    Jobu Black Widow gimbal tripod head (AWSOME for the long, heavy lenses)

    Film or Digital: I shoot film because I know my systems well and use them effectively. Different films have different characteristics and their own feel to them. Plus, it seems like the digital aspect of photography is becoming more of a fad than art because there is a new "I gotta-have that" something every other month. I put emphases on the work, not the gear. Think about this, cover shots of Playboy are shot with an 8x10.

    Camera I use the most: Elan 7E

    26 years old and I'm trying to figure out what to do with my life. I don't want to be stuck in a cubical the rest of my days and 6 years in the Marines was enough. No real photography market in Des Moines unless I get into the wedding business, not my first choice. Maybe I should just hook up with a rich girl, yeah that's it!

    Re: Photographyreview: The People

    Name:
    Sarah

    Meaning of handle (if it's not obvious):
    It's an old email address that I had that was based on the Bush song "Glycerine" and 19 was the number of my favorite hockey player at the time.

    Location:
    Georgia, about 25 miles north of Atlanta

    Born:
    Dayton, Ohio

    Other places I've lived:

    As a child...San Jose, CA, Omaha, NE and Seminole, FL

    Like to Retire:

    Maybe Orlando, it's a long way off for me.

    Ethnicity:

    White

    Marriage/Family:
    Married 7 years this Sept. Two children Nicholas is 5 and Elianna is 7 months.

    Languages I speak:

    English

    Education:

    Just a little bit of college

    Occupation:

    Mom

    Religious affiliation (if any):
    none

    Political affiliation (if any):

    Libertarian

    Other hobbies:
    Surfing the Internet and reading. There's not much time for hobbies when running the house and homeschooling.

    How long I have been a photographer:
    I've been taking pictures since I was 17, so 12 years but didn't consider myself a photographer until probably my son was born around 5 years ago.

    First "real" camera:
    Some version of the Canon Rebel

    How I found Photographyreview.com:
    I did a google search for Photography Critiques and this popped up. I'm tired of hearing how nice my pictures are by people who say the exact same thing to everyone no matter what their photos look like.

    Date I joined PR (sometimes people's listed join date is innacurate):

    May something, a couple of days ago. Probably the 22nd, 2006.

    Favorite forum:
    Not sure yet. I'm interested in the Sports Photography forum and the Critique forum.

    Photogatherings I have attended:

    none

    Favorite subjects:

    Sports, specifically hockey and my children.

    Current Gear:
    Canon 30D
    EFS 18-55
    EF IS 75-300
    EF 28-90
    Tamron 200-400

    Why I prefer film or digital:
    Digital is much less expensive and easier to work with since I like to put things on the web. I hate not having prints though.


    What I am trying to accomplish with my photography:

    With sports I love to take photos that I can go back and look at and feel proud that I took them. Like getting the cool action shots of a sporting event so you can see the game winning goal or the emotion during the play. I enjoy putting my pictures up on my webpage so others can find them and see moments that won't happen again. With my kids I want to have beautiful pictures of them from growing up that I can share with family and friends. It would be fun to be a pro someday but from what I've read it would be hard to be an independant pro sports photographer.

    Re: Photographyreview: The People

    Hello all! I'm new to this board and fairly new to photography as well. This seems like the best place to introduce myself so...

    Name:
    Tony Moore

    Meaning of handle (if it's not obvious):
    I'm Tony, my wife is Traci. Someone commented once that our initials were TNT (Tony aNd Traci). 868 is TNT on the telephone so it stuck.

    Location:
    Columbus, Ohio

    Born:
    Gahanna, Ohio, not too far from where I live now

    Other places I've lived:
    Never too far from Central Ohio

    Like to Retire:
    *sigh* Someday...

    Ethnicity:
    I'm the traditional melting pot. Mostly German, though.

    Marriage/Family:
    wife and 2 year old son

    Languages I speak:
    English

    Education:
    BA Psychology

    Occupation:
    Work for a mental health center

    Other hobbies: Music, reading, spending time with my son, learning how to be creative with the computer

    How long I have been a photographer:
    Not sure I have that title yet. I've had an interest and appreciation for looking at and studying photos for several years but not until recently have I decided to get behind the camera and explore. I taught myself Photoshop a few years ago and have been able to use that to do some cool things with pictures. I'd like to learn how to do some of those things in the camera and not rely on Photoshop.

    First "real" camera:
    Minolta XD-11

    How I found Photographyreview.com:
    Google search for photography message boards to ask some questions and learn from real users

    Date I joined PR (sometimes people's listed join date is innacurate):
    Yesterday, I think

    Favorite forum:
    still searching

    Photogatherings I have attended:
    none

    Favorite subjects:
    Nature/People

    Current Gear:
    35mm
    Minolta XD-11
    a couple lenses I inherited with the camera

    Digital:
    Canon PowerShot S50 point and shoot
    I hope to get a digital SLR soon...recommendations anyone?

    Camera I use the most:
    Lately the XD-11 because of the flexibility

    Why I prefer film or digital:
    Since I'm just learning the digital gives me the fast feedback I need

    What I like about Photographyreview.com:
    I've enjoyed reading this tread and getting to know some of the people who contribute to this board. It seems very informative and non-judgemental and the talent is amazing!

    What I am trying to accomplish with my photography:
    For now I just want pictures that don't look like everyone else's. When I see a photo that I like I can't stop studying and admiring it...I want that with my own pictures. In the future making some money off of my photos would be a fun way to earn income!

    Other Hobbies:
    I'm active in the local Little League Baseball program and enjoy umpiring baseball.

    How Long Have I Been a Photographer:
    20+ years

    First "real" camera:
    Canon FG.. I think that's what it was.. Then I moved onto Minoltas and finally came over to the sife of Light.. Nikon

    How I found Photographyreview.com
    I was looking for reviews on a particular lens (I think it was the Nikkor 20mm f2.8) and stumbled across the PR.com review area. From there, I lurked around the Photo Critique and Help Files until I finally joined. The site was pretty new back then.. I want to say it was between 3 and 6 months old when I finally joined.

    Date I Joined PR (sometimes people's listed join date is inaccurate):
    November 2001 sounds about right, but I lurked for a while before actually joining.

    Favorite Forum:
    Viewfinder

    Photogatherings I have attended:
    New York, and Yosemite

    Favorite Subjects to Photograph:
    Wildlife/Seascapes/Landscape

    Current Gear:
    Nikon D100
    Nikon N70
    Nikon FM2n
    and a variety of zoom and prime lenses.

    Why I prefer Film or Digital:
    Both have their strengths and weaknesses.. I just shoot more digital now for economical reasons.

    What I like about Photographyreview.com:
    I've always been drawn to the strong sense of family I find within the members of this awesome community.

    What am I trying to accomplish with my photography:
    Beats the hell out of me. ;)
