    Re: Photographyreview: The People

    Nice to have you here on PR Hannah. I enjoyed your images on the gallery and when I saw you had posted in the welcome thread clicked on to get to know you better. I think you will find Photography Review to be not only a very friendly site but a very helpful site if you want to improve the images you are producing. Great bunch of people here from all over and all skill levels. Stick around and get to know us.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    Re: Photographyreview: The People

    Name:
    Harrison Diamond

    Meaning of handle:
    A few years ago I spent quite a bit of time on cruise ships and became very good friends with many of the officers. They taught me quite a lot, and appointed me an honorary 'deck cadet', the training rank for bridge officers.

    Dorky PR club I belong to:
    Nikon Samurai #9


    Location:
    Gainesville, FL, the University of Florida... occasionally Miami.

    Languages I speak:
    English, understand but can't really speak Spanish, know Latin and Italian.

    Education:
    Currently working towards my B.A... probably in Political Science. May be going for a second in History or Public Policy...or just go for both of the latter and dump polisci. I'm just a freshman.

    Occupation:
    Staff Photographer, The Independent Florida Alligator; Student, University of Florida

    Religious affiliation : Jewish, sorta.

    Date I joined PR (sometimes people's listed join date is innacurate):
    October 2004

    Favorite forum:
    Nikon Camera Equipment / Digital SLRs.

    Photogatherings I have attended:
    None yet...

    Favorite subjects:
    News Photojournalism/Sports. And some other stuff.

    Current Gear:
    35mm:
    Nikon F6
    Nikon F2

    Digital:
    Nikon D3

    Camera I use the most:
    D3

    Why I prefer film or digital:
    I love my F6, shooting film slows me down and makes me think. I love the feeling of not having that instant gratification or that feeling that I can always reshoot.
    But I love my DSLRs for their feature set, build, and stunning image quality. the D3 is probably the best camera yet made, and I feel very lucky to shoot it.

    What I like about Photographyreview.com:
    Great people, great features, a very nice site overall. Some places just don't have the original content that we do, others lack the community and friendly people. I love it!

    What I am trying to accomplish with my photography:
    I don't know anymore. I thought I was in it to have some fun and maybe get to shoot some sports... just fun shots. Now I'm trying to capture moments, provide interesting views, and help my paper continue to gain in quality and stature. I want to make people take a second look.

    A few of my favorite recent images:

    One from the Newberry Hospice Rodeo last month...


    Two from this month's Olustee Civil War Reenactment...



    One from the Miss UF pageant...


    And lastly, one of me taken at the UF women's lacrosse game this Saturday. My friend Brant was shooting my D3 and 70-200 while I shot the D300 and 200 f/2 and TC for maximum reach. I'm currently....between 400mm's
    Aforementioned 200 f/2 and D300 are pictured.

    Re: Photographyreview: The People

    Nice to get a little bio on you Harry. I started my photography career as a staff photographer for my college yearbook nearly 40 years ago. Those years were some of the most enjoyable of my life. I learned more about photography than at any other time and had an opportunity to shoot a very wide variety of subjects. (Read lots of women to photograph that were eager to pose and thought the camera around my neck was really cool.) Enjoy this time in your ife and take full advantage of what life and opportunity has to offer you.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    Re: Photographyreview: The People

    'Bout time I jumped in on this as well.

    Name:
    Brad Miller

    Meaning of handle:
    Not much... old AIM ID that was a function of what was available.

    Dorky PR club I belong to:
    None so far...


    Location:
    Birmingham, AL, and Talladega, AL on many summer weekends (at Logan Martin lake).

    Born:
    Birmingham, AL

    Other places I've lived:
    Auburn, AL, for college

    Like to Retire:
    Much too far away to think about now...

    Ethnicity:
    White... English, Dutch, German, etc

    Marriage/Family:
    N/A

    Languages I speak:
    English, a little Spanish, a little bit of legalese Latin.

    Education:
    B.A. in Political Science w/ concentration in Law, minor in Business Administration, Auburn University 2006.
    Currently pursuing a Juris Doctorate (Law degree) at Cumberland School of Law at Samford University.

    Occupation:
    Law Student, for another 1.5 years. Hopefully a lawyer after that.

    Religious affiliation : Christian

    Political affiliation: Rational.

    Other hobbies: Video, all types of motor racing (specifically motocross), soccer, boating/sailing... lots of law.

    How long I have been a photographer:
    About 6 years, ish.

    First "real" camera:
    Canon Optura 60 (video)
    Canon Rebel XTi (photo)

    How I found Photographyreview.com:
    Don't even remember really... probably while researching video cameras a few years ago.

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

    Favorite forum:
    Tie b/t Viewfinder and Sports.

    Photogatherings I have attended:
    None yet...

    Favorite subjects:
    Racing, nature, people.

    Current Gear:
    Canon Rebel XTi

    Lenses and Accessories:
    50mm F/1.8

    Camera I use the most:
    XTi

    Why I prefer film or digital:
    I've never shot film seriously (have a little experience on my dad's Minolta SLR), but I prefer digital for the lower cost, flexibility, and editing ability. I rarely ever print anything, as most of my photos are shared online.

    What I like about Photographyreview.com:
    A very friendly, true community feel that many other forums on the internet lack. There are quite a few very active pro or pro-level photographers here, which is great for seeing good photography and getting great advice. The willingness of everyone to share their work across all styles and offer constructive critique is great.

    What I am trying to accomplish with my photography:
    Right now, I'm just trying to learn. The ultimate goal depends on what I'm shooting, but what I try to accomplish in any photo is one that expresses the feel of the situation, the environment, the emotion of the scene, one that inspires people to think or wonder, or be amazed at the beauty of creation.

    A few of my favorite recent images:

    Rooftop view in downtown Birmingham


    One of my favorite places in the world, the lake:

    35mm Film: Nikon Nikkormat FT2, 35mm F/2.8, 50mm F/1.4, 135mm F/2.8

    Looking to get Panasonic TZ5 or FX500


    Camera I use the most:
    a700

    Why I prefer film or digital:
    B&W: Film. Ilford HP5 to be exact. Just can't be replicated with digital.
    Otherwise I prefer digital. It's more convenient and no film/processing costs!


    What I like about Photographyreview.com:
    The community. This is the only forum I've ever been a part of where everyone is just so dang nice. You never see trolling, flaming, etc.

    What I am trying to accomplish with my photography:
    Just trying to share with people my experiences and passion for all places and things natural and wild.

    A few of my favorite pictures:
    Early morning on Lake 4 in Cottonwood Lakes basin, Sierra Nevada mtns.

    Re: Photographyreview: The People

    Harrison, great shots, I'd love to be able to capture moments like you've shown. In particular I like the Rodeo shot, what lens did you use? and the first shot of the civil war reenactment, with the sword glistening at the bottom.

    Great stuff.

    Shootme
    :thumbsup: Shootme...

    Please don't edit and re-post or use my images (not that you'd want to anyway...). without my written permission. Thank you

    First thing that popped into my head when I was asked for a screen name. No particular meaning.

    Dorky PR club I belong to:
    None.


    Location:
    Near Tulsa, Oklahoma

    Born:
    Tulsa, Oklahoma

    Other places I've lived:
    None worth mentioning

    Like to Retire:
    Yes, please.

    Ethnicity:
    White - Scotland, England, Ireland, Black Dutch (whatever that is), etc.

    Marriage/Family:
    Do-overs. Got it right the second time - 20 year anniversay is January 21. Three adult married children and eight grandchildren. (Didn't need to re-do the children and grandchildren - they are wonderful!

    Languages I speak:
    English

    Education:
    High School, Masters in SoHK

    Occupation:
    Presently caring for my terminally ill father. Previously helped and will eventually return to help my husband who is a Self-Employed Decorative Painter doing furniture, cabinetry, faux marble, wood & stone and high-end specialty plasters.


    Religious affiliation : Christian Seventh Day Adventist.

    Political affiliation: Currently disallusioned. It's rather difficult to see any difference in either party. (I like the clown suit suggestion.)

    Other hobbies: Anything outdoors; Reading; Art; Woodworking


    How long I have been a photographer:
    I have pointed and shot ON AUTO for years. I have owned a DSLR and used something other than a green box or its equivalent for less than a year -- way less.

    First "real" camera:
    An Olympus digital something (less than 3 pixel).
    I now own a Canon 40D - way more camera than I am photographer!

    How I found Photographyreview.com:
    Googling "photo critique"

    Date I joined PR (sometimes people's listed join date is innacurate):
    A few months ago.

    Favorite forum:
    Photo Critique -- or whichever one I happen to be on at the time at PR.com! I love this place...

    Photogatherings I have attended:
    None.

    Favorite subjects:
    Candid people shots, nature, sports, wildlife, macro to telephoto, etc., etc., etc.

    Current Gear:
    Canon 40D



    Lenses and Accessories:
    70-200 f/4 L IS
    17-40 1:4
    180mm macro


    Camera I use the most:
    40D

    Why I prefer film or digital:
    Digital seemed to be the way to go.

    What I like about Photographyreview.com:
    All the people in general have been very nice to and patient with me, and have been very willing to share their knowledge. Reading their critiques of the few photos I have posted have been very helpful, but reading all the critiques and attempting a few of my own have been most helpful. It was very intimidating (and still is) to jump in with such accomplished photographers, and to hear their kind AND honest critiques is most beneficial. My hope is to one day reach that place...


    What I am trying to accomplish with my photography:
    While I don't aspire to be a paid photographer per se, a skill level sufficient to maintain our portfolio would help, but mostly it is for my own personal satisfaction...and I'm pretty sure my painting skills will never equal the pictures produced by the 40D sensor!!

    ... especially at 6.5 fps

    A few of my favorite recent images...

    Re: Photographyreview: The People

    I'll just follow up the SPAM with a little on-topic post

    And as I was typing that, I got PM SPAM. Awesome.

    Name:
    Erik Williams

    Meaning of handle:
    I've been making sushi professionally for a half dozen years - Sushigaijin was the name of a private chef company I started.

    Dorky PR club I belong to:
    Nobody loves me :cryin:


    Location:
    Chicago, IL.

    Born:
    Chicago, IL

    Other places I've lived:
    San Francisco, Pearson Wi.

    Like to Retire:
    Of course! But that's putting the cart before the horse! I'm torn between owning (but not working in) a bar on the beach in the Caribbean, or a stucco house in NM, or maybe a farm in southern IL.

    Ethnicity:
    Lithuanian and Irish. That's about as Chicago as it comes.

    Marriage/Family:
    Married with a slight chance of children. Only after I can provide for them what wasn't provided for me. My mom really tried very hard - but I want my children to have all the things I couldn't, and all the things I could also.

    Languages I speak:
    English and pretty passable spanish. Mostly the stuff that you don't use around your grandmother. Working in kitchens for half of your life will do that.

    Education:
    Proud college (political science) drop out. Best choice I never made.

    Occupation:
    Chef, Morgan Harbor Grill in Chicago.

    Religious affiliation :
    Atheist.

    Political affiliation:
    Political conservative, social liberal. Or, left of left with right wing tendencies.

    Other hobbies: Herping. Bonsai trees, carnivorous plants, collecting straight razors, collecting beetles, kitchen knives, tattoos...you name it, I probably collect it.

    How long I have been a photographer:
    I've had a camera for at least 15 years. I've actually known how to use it (to some extent!) for about four.

    First "real" camera:
    Minolta SRT101 and a Yashica MAT 124G. My father was an army photographer so I had some pretty cool stuff growing up.

    How I found Photographyreview.com:
    to hell if I remember.

    Date I joined PR (sometimes people's listed join date is innacurate):
    a few years ago. or a thousand posts ago...

    Favorite forum:
    Nature and wildlife, naturally.

    Photogatherings I have attended:
    None yet...

    Favorite subjects:
    Nature and my family.

    Current Gear:
    Olympus E3
    Olympus E510

    Fujica ST605n
    Olympus OM10
    Yashica MAT 124G



    Lenses and Accessories:
    Zuiko Digital.
    12-60 SWD
    50-200 SWD
    50mm F/2 Macro
    FL50r flash, Fl36 Flash
    EX25 Tube


    OM 50/1.8
    Fuji 28/3.5
    Vivitar 135/2.8
    Vivitar 50/1.8
    m42 to 4/3 adapter

    Misc
    Monopod. Bogen something. Got it on recommendation in viewfinder. Nice piece of equipment.
    4 Poverty wizards
    a reflector
    various diffusers, mostly homemade.
    a few filters.

    Camera I use the most:
    Olympus E3

    Why I prefer film or digital:
    I've learned more in one day of shooting digital than in two years of shooting film. EXIF is a wonderful thing. Emmanual Kant would be proud.

    What I like about Photographyreview.com:
    BEST NATURE AND WILDLIFE FORUM, EVER. That's a true story. Even though it's a core of a dozen people, they are a dozen AWESOME people and great photographers too.

    What I am trying to accomplish with my photography:
    I just like to get outdoors. Photography is just an excuse, but in the past it's been fishing, hiking, camping, herping...photography has become more appealing over the years because it is a way to document the fun I've had, and the things I've seen. When you're only where you really want to be a handful of days a year it is important to remember why you bust your hump so badly.

    A few of my favorite recent images...

    Me on the left. Awesome rattlesnake.

    Fussen, Germany

    Eastern Massassauga - even awesomer rattlesnake, if that's possible.

    Mantis at twice life size.

    Re: Photographyreview: The People

    Hi. Just found the website and am excited to see what it offers.

    I have a Nikon P80 now but learned on a Pentax K1000.

    I love trying to find the perfect shot, but most times it seems that the first "casual" shot comes out much better than all the ones following it!

    I've been experimenting with my photo editing software lately and have begun a website around it:

    http://flowingwatersimpressionistpho....yolasite.com/

    I'd be interested in any advice or comments. Thanks.

    Thumbs up Re: Photographyreview: The People

    I've been reading about some of the members of this site, and I feel lucky to have found it. You people sound sincere and cool. I'm a 60yr old guy that just recently got back into photography. Bought my first camera (Konica Reflex T) at a PX in Viet Nam in 1969. Still use that sometimes and it still takes great pictures. But I just bought a Canon Rebel XS and am trying to learn digital. I would appreciate any help or suggestions. Will try to post a picture.

    Name:
    Simon

    Meaning of handle (if it's not obvious):
    I am not a particularly stargazing person, A colleague called me that and i liked it as a suitably obscure handle so i kept it.

    Sydney

    Other places I've lived:
    Various satellite suburbs of this great city.

    Like to Retire:
    Either a country estate or a cottage on a cliff overlooking the ocean

    Ethnicity:
    Officially caucasion 50/50 English/Dutch but going back portuguese, spanish, irish german - so I guess I am a mongrel

    Marriage/Family:
    One wife and one replicant so far

    Languages I speak:
    English and bits of Arabic, Dutch, Pig latin, Giberese and Entendre (I can probably swear in a couple more languages)

    Education:
    I attended uni and I graduated, I am not sure how much I learnt though

    Occupation:
    Communications / Production assistant is the official title, but I do a fair bit of Systems Administration as well as web and print design.

    Religious affiliation (if any):
    Roman Catholic - but I have very liberal views, free will was Gods greatest gift.

    Political affiliation (if any):
    Leftist. I would probably join a political party if I found the right one but I simply vote (although that is compulsory here)

    Other hobbies:
    Table Tennis, random facts, singing

    How long I have been a photographer:
    the journey started in 1998

    First "real" camera:
    Canon eos 500n

    How I found Photographyreview.com:
    I really don't recall

    Date I joined PR (sometimes people's listed join date is innacurate):
    I really don't remember but it was on the old site and I was a lurker way before I did anything active.

    Favorite forum:
    How could I not suggest my own forum? the digital video forum!
    When I was first on here I loved help files, now I am loving viewfinder and OT

    Photogatherings I have attended:
    livin4lax and I met up once just before he flew out.... does that count as the first and only sydney gathering?

    Favorite subjects:
    The sails and the coathanger (harbour bridge and the opera house for those who don't live in Sydney)

    Current Gear:
    400d and 300d bodies as well as 5 and 500n (both out on permanent loan)
    Zoom

    Prime
    24 f2.8, 28 f2.8, 50 f 1.8, 135 f2.8 (with soft focus), 200 f2.8L

    Camera I use the most:
    400d

    Why I prefer film or digital:
    Film, I love the look, but I only shoot digital these days as I simply can't afford the film.

    What I like about Photographyreview.com:
    The community as a whole, It is great that all levels of skill and experience can get on without any of the how big is your lens rubish that a lot of other websites and photography clubs have.

    What I am trying to accomplish with my photography:
    These days it is more of a hobby as I tend to be doing much more video. I would love to learn lighting better as well as posing people.
