Re: Minnie's 2021 Project 52

This week's theme: using distortion tools the first one is a new dam bird photo with a small wave turned into a tsunami and some stars distorted and dragged through the holes in the structure, then some fish folded up and stuffed into a basket. The second is a composite of two older swamp shots, us...

Re: Minnie's 2021 Project 52

I'm curious if you've learned anything about the subjects you photograph, like do you know more about the birds than just their names? I was thinking about this in my own work and how I sometimes take photos of places I don't even know the names of let alone the history. I'm not looking to write a ...

Re: Minnie's 2021 Project 52

Thanks for taking a look. I don't see egrets team up very often. Pelicans do it all the time. I agree this group did appear to be working together. But a lot of them are little egrets, which are migratory and I don't have enough chance to get to know them well. Maybe they're pack hunters since they...

Things in a row

Birds
I wonder if that is a hunting strategy, like a net they cast across an opening to help one another.

Either way, it is well captured and presented! Thank you for sharing this with us! S-

Re: Fading Into Dust

Damn, Steve, That’s just plain depressing! you doing ok? Seriously? Dave Hey Dave, I'm okay, just lost I guess, and trying to find my way home. I thought it was a mild case of the blues but I can't seem to find my way back to my camera again. I'm sure I'm just feeling down, but it's been years sinc...

Between Canon and Nikon.Which is best for a beginner.
The honest answer is neither and both, but to answer your question, the best camera is the one you have with you.

Focus less on the camera and more on what you want to do with it and the answer will come when you're ready. S-

I was was useful once now I sit on the shelf fading into dust. My battery is charged, my lenses clean, but I sit unused. I was loved once, taken everywhere, we saw the world. We would walk together and take pictures of everything. We would take adventures and see the magic of it all. Stop here, a pi...

Re: Minnie's 2021 Project 52

Theme: People in an Image - Well that ain't hard! Of late I've been playing a lot with photos of my 6 year old grandson's little league games. They are all terrible photos because the chain link fence cannot be avoided. It is too tall to get over, and the links are too small to shoot through. So I'...
