    Any Photographers in Here?

    80sNight (who thinks he is way too cool for us now that he got a girlfriend) is a hard core hobbiest, Doug is obviously a talented artist but j don't know about photos.... who else here is a gunslinger with a camera?

    Feel free to pots up your pictures. Bike related or not, it would be interesting to see. Our members tend to be talented at the things they put those minds to.

    Don't spend money and buy, spend time and learn.

    i sold a few photographs years ago so that makes me a professional, right ? (LOL) back when you developed your own 35mm film and printed them in a darkroom, dodging and burning as required, each print hand-made.

    then later i operated a large format 20"X24"copy camera for 30 years in the printing industry doing high-quality halftone and color separation work.

      I used to have big glass and was an early adopter of Canon dSLR's. Started with film SLRs when my kids were young. Now, two of my kids are into photography and I slowly got back into it. Expensive hobby if you want cutting edge. I recently bought an older 30D (with a Nifty Fifty lens) for pocket change to take creative pics and a M50 mirrorless for travel. I have an Olympus film SLR for occasional shots when I feel like using film. Older digital bodies are cheap now since everyone wants mirrorless full frame. I got a mint 20D if anyone wants it cheap!

      I dug this picture up from the Tail back in 2004 with a Canon 10D, slow shutter and stopped down to f16. Knowing me when I was young and dumb, I was taking it while riding. I'm such an idiot!

      I took this without a camera! Extra credit if you know what I used.

      I took this with a Canon Canonet QL17 and scanned the film.

        I haven't used a dark room since high school, but I used to shoot black and white film on a 90's Canon EOS Rebel. I'd never describe myself as a photographer, though.

        squirrelman that's some really nice photography!

            Is this a riddle? What's not a camera but can take a picture that can be published on the internet.


            I know. A thief!!! You stole it!

            What do I win?

              Nope. I used a flatbed scanner. Turn off the light, place the object and scan. Short depth of field. One trick for clocks - you have to turn of the second hand or it will show movement. It's a several minute "exposure", ie scan.

                Damn. Wasn't even close... Did you at least steal the clock?


                Cool trick!

                    Thanks but not my idea. It's just a little known trick that still surprises people. Neat for some still photography. And no, didn't steal the clock....

                    Called scanography.

                      Nice work Jerry! I did a bit of b&w in a community college. Dodge and burn along with double/triple exposures! Fun analog photography!

                        I made a pretty good living writing, designing and taking photos, mostly product and industrial. Digital cameras and photoshop made everything so much better and easier, but I still miss my Hasselblads. This is one of my favorites, and well, yes, photoshop made several good photos into one much better one. I'll never tell.

                          I forgot. When traveling in Pisa, Italy, I must have had my camera tilted, because this bell tower came out crooked, that is, not vertical. But with photoshop, no problem. I fixed the picture as it should be.
