    Thread for professional photographers only!

    Professional. Ha!

    I travel a lot for work so I get to see things that us po-folk wouldn't ordinarily get the chance to look at. It's a nice change after 20 years of bustin' my back.

    There is a lot of downtime so I bought a cheap used DSLR off of craigslist and learned how to use it.

    Anyone else here fancy their self a photographer?

    Here is some of my stuffs that I think turned out ok:

    The rock at night:

    Not so far away, I still like this shot of Columbus:

    Another shot in Columbus:

    MY bridge. I keep it out west so my wife can't lose it and my kids can't break it:

    Mike-
    I am impressed. Nice, nice work. those really are nice photographs, although the last 2 posts did not come through (admin wouldn't allow link)
    I will add that I have a damn expensive DSLR that I didnt buy off craigs list, and I can't take pictures that good. I guess its all about the operator, not the machine, lol.

    Thanks.

    It's a Canon 350D. 8.0mp.

    I paid 200 clams for it.

    When people tell me it takes nice pictures I usually say my oven bakes pretty good cookies too.

    Using a Nikon D7000, been way more than happy with the still lifes,landscapes and architectural pics I like to take.
    Still trying to get used to taking action shots during a game and having it bracket the background image instead of the foreground action in wanted. Probably a setting I have t figured out yet,'the manual is a it the size of Kong dick and an even less riveting read!!!
