    One for you metal heads. Saw this truck sitting behind the market on the other side of town and thought it was pretty cool.

    (click on the thumbnails and then right click on that pic and hit "View Image" for a full-size photo)

    This guy was on my truck tire one late afternoon,I actually watched it for almost two hours as it climbed out of it's shell.

    Not real sure what's going on in this pic but this crazy lady next door moved out and left this critter behind when she was little and so I rescued her.
    Seven years later she now lives on my bed and has been my companion at night when I'm watching Clint Eastwood shooting bad guys in the old Spaghetti Westerns.

    This is my 3 year old female Akbash Sophia face to face with my neighbors little girl.
    I couldn't pass up a shot like this.

    Another close-up of Sophia.

    Not that great of photography I know but the subjects are pretty cool.
    This "Polar Beast" is my world.Never have I been around an animal that shows so much emotion as this dog. I love her more than my own life.



    Look closely at these two photos.
    I live about one hour East of Joplin,Missouri. The town that had the worst tornado in recent history of the U.S.
    I had no idea at the time but the first pic was taken facing West.
    [​IMG]

    The second pic was taken in the same direction from the same driveway only a few minutes after the first pic was taken.
    The sky drastically changed colors in no time at all.
    It was not until the next morning did I hear about the tornado ripping through Joplin.
    It's kind of eerie to think these photos were the aftermath of that very storm.

    Some nice photos from Japan; I wish I could see more detail in the bride of the last shot.

    You asked for it, and you got it... unfortunately, I was standing in quite far away from the couple, and I didn't really wanted to 'interrupt' their ceremony, so I think this might be one of the 'cleaner' shots. As for the earlier one I posted, strangely I loved how the bride was over-exposed by like 2 stops.

    Some really awesome pictures here. I'm thinking of getting my first DSLR soon. I've wanted one for years, but they are so expensive, and it's scared me away. I'm considering getting a Canon Rebel T2i. It's looking like it makes the most sense for my first. I also want to use it to shoot some guitar videos and such.

    I've never really manually shot pictures, aside from a couple weeks in Grade 9. Anyone have any good sites to teach some basic technique, or can provide me with some useful pointers? It's always fascinated me, and I think I may bite the bullet and grab my first kit this weekend.

    I use these with photo I students at my school: Pixtus Photography Cheat Sheet

    A good idea may be to hold 1 of the 3 items (Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO) constant and change the other two (while in manual mode of course) and take a picture of the same image with the same exposure so you can see the different effects of DOF, camera/photographer shake, etc.

    Feel free to shoot me a pm anytime as well.

    Thanks dude. Picked up a Canon 550D/Rebel T2i with the kit lens. I got it last night, was up playing with it this morning. Basically doing that (keeping one of those constant, adjusting the other 2). Definitely helping me understand the effects they have on the picture. That should be a handle little sheet to throw on my phone. Pretty excited to have finally got a DSLR, now just have to learn to use it.

    Nice work! Although I'm still grappling with the difference - or lack of - between this and the other photography thread...

    Sorry for the amount of images, but I recently finally got my first DSLR after shooting with film for about 6 or 7 years. These are some of the pictures I've really liked that I've gotten with my new camera.

    This one's out-of-focus, but I love it anyway. I messed with the colour enough for it to almost be passed off as intentional, in a lo-fi sort of way.

    Today, I made my first attempt at self-portraiture.
