TomCofer's 52 'cause it's what I do.

Ok, gonna kick this section off. Hope you folks will join in. A 52 keeps your camera from gathering dust and cures your itchy shooting finger problems, so let's go!!

Here's some shots that I took today during our family Christmas gathering.

Sorry, but they're both so darn cute that I couldn't limit myself to one.

Thanks John.
I've got shots of the rest of the family to edit, but these two little ones were the main attraction.

Thankfully, they don't get their looks from my side of the family. :lol:

A great start to the section Tom, I will take a third attempt at doing a 52 once I return home from Colorado. My first to attempts at Camel failed miserably, mostly because as a working pro I rarely pick up the camera and some days the work I am doing simply is not suitable for inclusion in a thread such as a 52

Well since this isn't the camel, why don't you start a 52 for your type of photos?

As much as I would like to do this I have to abide by the rules I established when I set the community up which is that nudes may only appear in the Glamour section though O may amend that to include European style fashion magazine nudes in the fashion section but it creates issues with many people who simply do not want to see nudity or who spend time with their children in the room while participating in the community.

The other issue I have goes beyond nudity issues and crosses into client privacy and proprietary content issues as well. Some weeks I simply do not create images that are usable in a situation like this

I know that you are staying busy with everything you're involved in Bobby, but I for one would really enjoy seeing you do a 52. Maybe you could sneak in one shot every week of a subject that was completely out of your norm. It wouldn't have to be a portrait or even a person. Maybe shots of props even, like the steampunk stuff you mentioned. I know you're a pro and have a standard and a rep to maintain, but keep in mind that the 52 is (in my opinion) intended to be more for fun. It might even include snapshots with unplanned lighting. :shock: :o LMAO! Seriously though, a 52 usually contain shots of whatever catches your eye and that you think others may find interesting. I don't know how many photos of bugs, plants, or pets acting goofy that I've taken. Again, I know you're a busy man, but it might give you a couple minutes of "break" from work every week. :)
