    Hi photography thread. It's been too long.

    Here's a picture I took while drunk (if only I had a nickel each time I said that) and experimenting with fire and long exposures. Miraculously I managed not to burn myself.

    Took dog for a walk today. Do love the camera on my smart phone.






    (His name was Noodles. His people kept calling him back but he kept running around with our dog and getting ahead of them. And running in my shots!)


    (Dtoid shirt!)


    (Damn it, Noodles! Making your owners look bad, you cute little dog.)

    Yes, and what Steve said. Also, Noodles is such an adorable name for a troublesome dog.

    i finally got me a 50mm 1.8 lens! i'm so happy i did an engagement shoot yesterday and i'm please with the pics that i took with it.



    the bottom two pics were taking with my new lens. I had to use my telephoto for certain shot if i didn't have enough room to back up and such. But these images are straight out of them camera, so I'm pretty stoked that they look as well as they do.

    Anybody know anything about out cameras?

    I recently liberated a Pentax K1000 from a yard sale. Seems to work and all. Might have to bring it to a professional to really tell if it works.

    If it does, is it a decent camera for a beginner? I've wanted to get into photography for awhile.

    The K1000 is pretty much a gold standard as far as student cameras go. Assuming it's in good working order, you've got yourself a good tool there. Also, you can find used lenses in great condition for relatively cheap; check out keh.com if you're looking for extra glass, or pretty much anything else. Just one thing to know: the light meter has no off switch. If you don't keep a lens cap on, it'll just meter whatever's in front of it until the battery dies.

    Erm, think you've got your terms confused there. 'Telephoto' means a lens with a longer focal length, usually upwards of 85mm or 100mm, depending on the photographer you ask (up to 85 or 100 is usually called 'medium-telephoto'). You'd need more space to get more in frame with such a lens. I think you mean a zoom lens.

    But either way, nice photos and congrats on sorting yourself with a 50. Nobody should be without either a 35mm or 50mm prime, or even both. Try using nothing but that lens for a month and you'll soon wonder how you ever took a single photo without it.

    Speaking of 50 1.8s, I dug out my old 1978 Canon A-1 and took it for a spin, just with the original kit 50mm f/1.8 lens. Still seems to work fine, albeit some part of the mechanism is squeaking a little and the metering seems to be thrown off by a two thirds of a stop or so. Still, considering the A-series were the first SLRs to feature automatic metering, it's 35 years old and it's spent the last 25 of those on a shelf, not bad going. Took it out for a casual snap with some basic B&W C41 to check everything over and it seems as sharp as ever.

    My wonky framing and slightly soft focus aside, gotta love that 35mm dynamic range. 1pm sunshine at f/5.6, you can bet a digital shot would be clipping all over the place. The highlight detail would be lovely if it wasn't for the combo of grain (ASA 400) and shitty jpg compression.

    herr durr, you're right, it's my bad habit to call my zoom lens telephoto most of the time. my poor photography speech, lol.
    but i love my new 50mm!

    Once you're fully comfortable with the 50mm, get an 85mm and if funds allow, a 28mm or 24mm. With those three you'll never have a use for a zoom ever again and you'll really be able to notice how much sharper and snappier your photos are, as well as how quickly you can frame the shot and how much more fun they are to use. I only keep one zoom around—a standard range in my travel kit for the sake of saving space—and I'm loathe to ever get that out. There's really nothing better for snapping people than an 85mm prime.

    i'm used to working with what I have, and so far, i've been able to do well. I would love to get a 24mm next.
