    All of them!

    zero

    Favorite Subjects to Photograph:

    Canon rebel xt

    A variety of lenses, only one of which is a real quality lens. Saving for college makes it impossible to buy anything better

    A little more about me:
    I'm 17 and just graduated Burlington Highschool in Burlington, Vermont. I started playing around with BW photos in the darkroom a few years ago, and I've been hooked ever since. This year I was asked to be photo editor and 'head photographer' for my yearbook, so almost everything I have shot has been for school. I've found that I really enjoy shooting sports (only outdoors! lighting is aweful in high school gyms and rinks) as well as a myriad of musical events. I'm joining this forum because I want to improve and learn from some masters

    I've had my external HD at school all year and haven't brought it back yet, so I dont' have most of my shots atm... but here are a few I just found in some old folders

    Re: Photographyreview: The People

    Hello everyone,
    I am the long time and legal partner of Kizzie(Kaelastreet) who is a member here. Whether it is me or your huge site I have tested Kizzie's patience no end tonight as I have asked her time and again to help me navigate around here.
    Anyway by way of introduction I own a Canon 350D with three lenses, a multiplier lens, a macro lens, macro flash and tripod.
    Funny really I spent £700 recently on a beautiful telephoto and then today used the supplied stock lens 18-55mm to grab this piccie.
    Hope it's good enough for such an illustrious crowd.

    Bump!

    Since we have so many new members joining and posting short bios and pictures in the VF, I wanted to make sure everyone knows that this thead is here. It used to be a sticky, but was removed to make room for other threads. It's where we collect information on each other for introductions and future ribbings You can read up on other members here and post your own bio, self portait, and a few of your favorite shots.

    For future reference, this thread is linked to in the "Welcome" thread at the top of the Viewfinder.

    Look forward to seeing some new faces!

    Why I prefer film or digital:
    I love digital because I can get the photo instantly and I can just put it up on my computer and print them out whenever I wish.

    What I am trying to accomplish with my photography:
    Well my aunt had an idea that I really liked which was photographing peoples kids, not in a studio, but going to the park and taking pictures of peoples kids at play as my job. It would be a great job as I can bring my own kids along with me and people love pics of their children and its something I love doing so why not make a little money doing it. But if that does not pan out.. I just want to take pictures.. not to accomplish anything, but just for me because I enjoy it.

    Re: Photographyreview: The People

    Hi folks,
    Just joined so I though I'd introduce myself.

    Name: Fabio Tonelli

    Location: Sydney, Australia

    Born: Rome, Italy (came to Aus when I was 7)

    Languages: I'm still fairly fluent in Italian

    Occupation: CAD Manager

    How long a photographer: I started doing photography at school but then dropped it for a long time and I've only just come back to.

    Camera: Nikon D70s

    Other hobbies: Formula 1, Tennis, Football

    Essentially I started doing photography at school, the old fashioned way, 35mm B&W, had a bulk loader, developed my own photos (the whole sheabang). I then dropped it for a very long time, used to take the odd photo here and there but nothing fancy. For my 40th a couple of months ago, my wife and family decided to lash out and get me a Nikon D70s with a Tamron 28-300mm zoom. Which is fantastic, however I'm having to relearn everything that I've forgotten, so I may be asking a few questions of you experts.

    Cheers.

    Re: Photographyreview: The People

    Hello... I just joined the forum and thought I'd introduce myself. I'm a beginner and recently got back into the hobby of photography... I use my trusty Rebel XT and have gotten to take some different shots here and there. I live in NJ and am accountant/auditor by day... and photography forum nerd by night!! Below are a few recent pics -

    Re: Photographyreview: The People

    Name:
    Lynn

    Meaning of handle (if it's not obvious):
    My dog (standard poodle - think large poodle) is named OB - short for Out of Bounds (the golfing term)

    Location:
    Charlotte, NC

    Born:
    New Jersey

    Other places I've lived:
    Ohio (college ouside of Cleveland), Cirencester, England for a semester of college

    Like to Retire:
    I'd love to have the Rockies in my backyard, on a horse farm.

    Marriage/Family:
    married w/3 kids (or 4, as the joke goes, if you count my husband), 2 dogs (both standard podles), 1 cat (currently high on catnip)

    Education:
    BA Equestrian Studies (yeah, really!)

    Occupation:
    Real Estate Assistant - I handle the marketing and website maintenance for an agent.

    Political affiliation (if any): Do you really think we can believe anything anyone in government says? I've never found it possible to align myself with one of two choices, when I won't ever agree 100% with either one of them. I have my own thoughts, ideas, and beliefs - some liberal, some conservative. Kind of an a-la-carte bent.

    Other hobbies: dog training, golf (husband is a 5 handicap - if you can't beat 'em, join 'em), drawing (although not of late)

    How long I have been a photographer:
    ever since my grandmother gave me my first camera to take to camp around 36 years ago. Although I'd say I've been 'taking pictures' for that long, as opposed to I've been 'a photgrapher' that long.

    First "real" camera:
    That would be a Konica that I got in 1980. Took amazing pictures - wish it still worked

    How I found Photographyreview.com:
    When I went digital last Feb, I needed help.

    Date I joined PR (sometimes people's listed join date is innacurate):
    Feb or March of 2006

    Favorite forum:
    Nature & Sports

    Favorite subjects:
    My children doing their various activities, which has forced me to learn how to work in a variety of settings (indoor pools, night football games, bright daylight at the golf course) with different challenges - ever tried to take photos of diving?

    Current Gear:
    Nikon D50
    Nikkor 18-55mm 3.5-5.6
    NEW!! Sigma 70-200mm 2.8
    Quantaray 70-300 f5.6 or something equally awful
    Bogen monopod
    Hoya filter setup with tons of filters that I never use (from the Konica days)

    Camera I use the most:
    The only one I have that works - the D50

    Why I prefer film or digital:
    Converted to digital early this year (2006), and I like the instant gratification, but still trying to work out a good workflow, not spending hours PP (I shoot in RAW)

    What I like about Photographyreview.com:
    Seeing other's photos, learning a LOT - having things pointed out in a photo that I'd never see myself (even if it's not my photo)

    What I am trying to accomplish with my photography:
    Just to take great photos for my family's & friend's enjoyment for now

    A few of my favorite pictures:

    Re: Photographyreview: The People

    Name: Dan

    Meaning of handle: Refers to the concept Maximum Printable Density created by one of my earliest mentors Fred Picker, now sadly deceased, who developed this black and white printing method as part of Zone VI Studios. His technique really helped me fine tune my early b&w years (though I've still not yet mastered it with the introduction of digital overshadowing analog photography) That said, I'm still very much an analog "kid."

    Location: Bay City, Michigan

    Born: same

    Other places I've lived: eastern Upper Peninsula of Michigan - best years of my life, best people

    Like to Retire: I don't plan on retiring

    Ethnicity: Equal mix of German/French descent

    Marriage/Family: not yet

    Languages I speak: English and some Spanish

    Education: yup - lernin is gud

    Occupation: photographer

    Religious affiliation (if any): agnostic but REALLY hope there is a God out there

    Political affiliation (if any): will vote for the best candidate, but definately have strong Dem. tendencies...

    Other hobbies: primarily a road biker but love mountain biking almost as much, nature, running, bird watching, touring, camping, art, good books.

    How long I have been a photographer: about 25 years

    First "real" camera: Minolta X-700

    How I found Photographyreview.com: Google search for "Holga"

    Date I joined PR: mid-2006

    Favorite forum: Viewfinder/Toy Camera

    Favorite subjects: Anything that makes a great photograph

    Current Gear:

    35mm film and digital
    Holga
    4x5 Zone VI field camera (film)

    Why I prefer film or digital: I like both

    What I like about Photographyreview.com: Megan Green's Holga work really inspires me to be better Holga photographer - and MtbBrian is no slouch either! Come on people, let's see some more Holga images! I know, I know, I've been pretty lax on posting Holga stuff on this site lately, but I live in northern Michigan fachrissakes! (is the sun still shining?!)

    What I am trying to accomplish with my photography: To produce excellent images - no more, no less (it obviously doesn't always happen folks. ;) )

    How long I have been a photographer: depends on what you consider a photographer I've been taking pictures since I could pick up a camera, but I've been really concentrating more on my photography the last 5 - 6 years.

    First "real" camera:
    Minolta X-700

    How I found Photographyreview.com:
    Googling for camera reviews

    Date I joined PR (sometimes people's listed join date is inaccurate):
    I've been coming here to read reviews for a long time, but just joined the forums today.

    Digital:
    Canon Powershot SD800 IS ... and I'm shopping for a DSLR

    Camera I use the most:
    my Powershot

    Why I prefer film or digital:
    I've always liked film better, because I haven't had a digital yet that could compare, and I like having the prints (I know you can make prints from digital, but it just isn't the same) but I like the ease of digital and the absence of developing costs!

    What I like about Photographyreview.com:
    The reviews; they are very helpful. I have a feeling, though, that the forums are gonna be right up there once I get to know everyone!

    What I am trying to accomplish with my photography:
    To capture memories; the beauty of everyday life that you might only glimpse for a moment but want to have with you forever.

    Re: Photographyreview: The People

    Hi Topcat - you already posted in the thread I was going to point you towards for how to post photos here. If anybody else needs it, it's right here.

    The other part of your question about how to make images smaller depends on how you're using your camera. I'm a Nikon guy but I have a D200 so I can probably help a little. There are two different types of files you can shoot with your camera; a jpeg or a NEF. You'll need Nikon's software to work with NEF's (I'd recommend eventually upgrading to Capture NX if you don't have it already) but a lot of software can work with jpegs. If you only need a quick and easy (and free) way to resize, try Irfanview. With this, open the image and (going from memory, I don't have it on this computer) select resize/resample which might be under the edit tab. Change the size to about 600 pixels in the longest of the two dimensions and they'll post just fine here. Make sure to "save as" so you don't lose your original. I usually save this small copy to the desktop so it's easy to find, then post as shown in the other thread I mentioned above.

    PS - great stuff, Ric!

    Re: Photographyreview: The People

    Name:
    Melanie Patterson

    Meaning of handle (if it's not obvious):
    Just a name. I wanted something more...deep than previous names. Though it really has no meaning to it, at all.

    Dorky PR club I belong to (if any):
    I'm new so...hah.

    Location:
    Miami, Florida.

    Born:
    Miami, Florida.

    Other places I've lived:
    About a mile and a half away from my current residence..yeah, I;m not privileged in that department.

    Like to Retire:
    I'm not even thinking about that yet, I'm only 15! I'm thinking about where'd I'd like to go to college/art school, and I'm hoping somewhere on the West coast.

    Ethnicity:
    I'm half Jamaican, half "African-American", though I think the term is a little...derogatory.

    Marriage/Family:
    Not married, far from it, hah. And I have 2 older sisters, whom are graduated from college, and we all live with my mom and dad.

    Languages I speak:
    English, that's it. I live in Miami, so I should know Spanish by now. Yeah, right.

    Education:
    Student in high school. I'm in the Visual Arts academy, but I've chosen the art strand over the photography strand. Next year will be my 11th grade year, and I will be taking the AP 2-D Design course.

    Occupation:
    Student C:

    Religious affiliation (if any):
    I'm Presbyterian. I'm a VERY proud Christian!

    Political affiliation (if any):
    I'm really not interested in politics- currently, at least.

    Other hobbies:
    I'm a drawer/painter, as well as a dancer. I also love reading and writing. I'm an artsy person, I guess.

    How long I have been a photographer:
    I started taking it seriously after my photography course last school year, 2006-2007.

    First "real" camera:
    I asked for a camera one Christmas, cause I wanted to take up photography 3 years ago. My dad bought me an Olympus-something-or-other. That camera was good for nothing.

    How I found Photographyreview.com:
    Searching for photography inspiration through Google. I'm dead out of ideas.

    Date I joined PR (sometimes people's listed join date is innacurate):
    Today, February 9th, 2008.

    Favorite forum:
    Not sure yet. I've gotten time to browse a bit, but not enough to really find a "home", so to speak.

    Photogatherings I have attended:
    None, hah.

    Favorite subjects:
    I really don't have one favorite. I photograph an array of things, because I'm still trying to find that one thing. So far though, I'm really liking abstract, conceptual, concerts, and self-portraits.

    Current Gear:
    Canon Rebel XTi
    18-55mm Kit Lens
    Quantaray 70-300mm Lens
    Nikon CoolPix P3

    Camera I use the most:
    Rebel XTi

    Why I prefer film or digital:
    I haven't worked with film. I'm infuriated with myself because I had dark room access last year and I was too comfortable with digital to work outside of it. I even rolled my own film, shot, but never processed or developed it.

    What I like about Photographyreview.com:
    So FAR, I like the family-like connection I see that people have, just because I've been lurking. It's also a good way to keep inspiration and those ideas flowing.

    What I am trying to accomplish with my photography:
    I'm not sure what I'd like to accomplish. I guess what I'd really like to do is experiment with everything possible, just because I can. One thing I'd really like to take on is photojournalism. Something that's always interested me is Indian cultures, partially because I'm 1/16th Indian. I think India would be a beautiful subject to have on camera, just to see rural life, and all the work everyone in the family has to put in- something American families often take for granted.

    A few of my favorite pictures:
    I apologize in advance for any watermarks- I really really love some of my photos, haha.







    And lastly, ME

Currently I take photos for my own pleasure; however, i have been considering trying to generate some sort of income from them. But overall, i just enjoy capturing moments that are special or unique.

    A few of my favorite pictures:
