Ok here we go.  Do we have any budding digital photographers here?  Want a place to show your stuff?  Get or give advice?   Heres the place!


I have a canon t1i with the kit lens, a 50mm f 1.8, a 70-300mm telephoto and a 100mm f 2.8 macro.  It all fits nicely in the Canon backpack I got.  Its weather proofed and has plenty of room for everything I need, including carry straps for a tripod.  Very happy with the set up.
 When I got the kit I went with the t1i instead of the t2i because that allowed me to buy more glass.  I figured the lenses will always be usable but eventually Ill want to upgrade the body to a full frame camera so it made sense to go with the less expensive body at this point. 

Its a very nice set up in the hands of an amateur.  Im learning a lot playing with it and have picked up a few reference books to help me along. 

heres some of my early stuff:   Taken with my telephoto on a clear night in the Detroit metro area:


Playing around with my portrait lens.  This is my bud, Chewie

This one I call  "Heres Chewie" ( I shouldnt have let him watch the Shining! )

These two are my first amateur attempts at fireworks photography:




anyways  I have a long way to go but Its a great hobby and the digital world has made it very easy to get into.  So what do you have in your portfolio?  Lets see em!

Just start! I didn't decide to do my P365 2010 until New Year's Eve 2009, and even then it was a last minute, spur of the moment thing. And I learned so much about photography just from doing it.

Take the plunge!

Hey gang, we just got the Canon T2i with the 2 lens kit at Costco and I love it.  I have a question about the movie mode though, the 1080p movie mode has both 30fps and 24 fps modes...what is the difference, meaning how do they look different?

Same thing that happens when your framerate is higher in a game - smoother movement.

I think 24fps is considered more 'movie like' in appearance.

Hey gang, does anyone have an add on flash for their SLR?  I was wondering if even the basic Canon Speedlite would be worth it (Ex: Speedlite 270EX II), or do you really need to spend a little more to get something that will make a difference?

Someone gave me a Speedlite 420EX last year. It works, in that it's a flash, but it is pretty weak. Unfortunately, to get a big boy flash, you're gonna have to spend $300+, I think. But, then again, it is better than the pop up flash.
