I live in Denmark, Copenhagen, with my girlfriend and our 2 daughters (Frederikke & Auguste).

Working in IT-industry and part-time as a busines coach. Time for photography is very limited - allthough I enjoy photography & photoshopping a whole lot. I am constantly seeking to improve my skills in photography and learn a lot from being part of flickr (such a great forum).

Last year I bought a D200 and a couple of lenses, which I am currently trying to master and have the best use of.

I'm William from New Jersey, USA. I use Nikon D200 and hope to upgrade to the D3 shortly! I have a small collection of lenses and I LOVE to shoot architecture. I am also trying to start getting involved more with street photography, as New York City is not too far and I can get there by train, and it has lots of opportunities for taking pictures.

Hello=] i am Alex,i am 16 and i am from North Carolina. I love to take shots of bands,and most sports. Also getting portraits and group shots are pretty cool too.i use a d80,and currently i only have the 18-135 that came with it=[ but,i have used dozens of other lenses and i am currently saving up for the 14-28 or the 70-200 vr=] being that i am only 16,and no license,i am very limited to the amount of money i can get;around here there is not many decent paying jobs. my parents are not going to spend money on lenses, they want me to work and earn them. kinda lame but its whatever=]
Mannequin- 11 years ago
Alex, I hear your pain. Lenses are expensive. If I were you I would practice with the 18-135 a bit and find out what range you like to shoot at the most. Find out if you like wide angle shots that include everything, or long-distance zooms. That will help you in your lens decision. I have both the 14-24 and the 70-200 and they're both great but very, very different.

Anyway, glad you're part of the group. If you have any lens questions, feel free to ask! There are a number of knowledgeable people here who can help.

Name is Felix from Indonesia, currently studying in Purdue University, IN.
use D40 with the kit lens (18-55mm), Sigma 10-20mm (most enjoyable lens so far), 55-200mm VR, 50mm f/1.8D (like the sharpness, manual focusing does not bother me)

Still quite new of the world of SLR and learning. I usually take outdoor photograph, love the light cast by the sun.

Hi all, I'm Claire from Clarksville in MD, USA. I teach people to ride horses. I'm shooting an F100 with a couple of good older lenses- love it!

@ Alex :) Wondering if there are any pro photographers in your area you could find a job with assisting- you like portraits, might learn some & even if pay not great would at least be doing something you love :)) I learned my trade that way & have to say I get great satisfaction looking at what I've accomplished with "sweat equity". Use your connections too. If you have friends needing yearbook photos take some. If they don't like them no charge & you got experience, If they like them charge something towards your "photo scholarship" :)) Same with some good sports pics. Good luck

Hi, I'm Gabriel from Ft. Lauderdale, FL. I'm a graphic designer, but I find myself more and more in love with photography with each passing day! I've also got an unhealthy lust for lens. I need help :)
Mannequin- 10 years ago
Welcome fair and plastic! Glad you're now part of our group!

fair - great advice for Alex. It's true - the more pictures you take and put into practice what you read and learn, the better you get. That takes a lot of hard work! But it's fun and very rewarding.

Plastic - having a background in graphic design will help you a lot in terms of photography. Especially since you will probably have a certain degree of knowledge when it comes to the post-processing aspect of taking pictures. One of the best photographers I know studied for years as a traditional graphic designer, and his shots are phenomenal. (He doesn't have a website / flickr account.) But it was through what he learned in his GD studies that he was able to master composition and then, finally, processing techniques that really made his images stand out.

Best of luck to both of you!

edwayfarer Posted 10 years ago. Edited by edwayfarer (member) 10 years ago
Hey everybody, name's Ed, I'm Swiss and I'm currently preparing to go abroad for some time and take a lot of great pictures; I'm 27 and I've been snapping away since about 1994 when I inherited a Canon AV-1 with a 35-70mm lens; I also got a Minox 35 GT on that occasion and that nifty little piece of German (over-)engineering was what really got me into this great hobby we share. I am an equipment geek; I have owned 3 Canon A1s with the superfast MA motordrives, I have just bought my 3rd Canon EF body, my favorite for all things concerning macro and I have had tons of FD lenses lying around for a long time. The plasticky feel of anything 'Canon' post 1978/79 turned my attention to Nikon in about 2000/01 and hey presto: photography took off on another level! What still baffles me is the quality of Nikon lenses; nothing compares to their brilliance and sharpness. I currently have a set of two, the 20-35 and 35-70 f/2.8 D AF Nikkors, I also had a simpler 28-70mm f/3.5-4.5 D AF once, a good little lens, that one! My body of choice is the F90X/N90S; I have owned 4 of those over the years all with the MB-10 which I find very practical. Finally, scanning my slides, I use a Nikon Coolscan IV model that I'm very happy with; merry picture-taking, everyone!-)

I live near Milan and photography it's just an hobby for me (unfortunately).
I bought a Nikon D5000 in june and it's my first reflex.
I hope that your advices can help me shooting always a better photo than the previous one ;-)
I live in Maryland in the United States on the east coast on the Chesapeake Bay. I have been picking up cameras and taking photo's with them since I was a kid back in the sixties. The first camera I shot with was my parents Argus 75 (2 1/4) film camera. My first pro SLR was my Pentax Spotamatic F (Honeywell). Back in the seventies I bought my first Nikon F 50mm 1.4. I have since sold my F and moved on to an F100 and an F-3. Even though I now have digital Nikons I still like to shot B & W and slide film (I miss my Kodachrome). Digital is easier and cheaper but still doesn't record the color, especially for night shots, like film. Glad to be part of your group.

Gabriel Bonino 9 years ago
Hi all, My name is Gabriel, and I live in Spain. I took pictures since I was 10 or 11. My first camera was an EXA SLR without meter. I have used several cameras from these years to today, Zenit, Rollei (120), EXACTA, Canon, etc. But Today all my gear is Nikon.

Still today I use a lot my lovely Nikon FE and others Nikon film cameras. In digital I use a D90, D80 and a D1X for guerrilla pictures.
But the camera no matters, only matter the vision and mind.

I consider photography a very important part of my life.
I'dont know paint or sculpt, I only know to see, and with photography I can show others my point of view in only a fraction of the time.

I use shoot for documentary, social, and lifestyle. My personal challenge is someday be a master controlling the light... Now I'm only an apprentice.

Hi, my name is Tim. I'm married and have two kids. A daughter seventeen and son thirteen. I'm in college and plan to major in journalism or creative writing ... I have much interesting family history worth writing about. I love my dog, Prince, he is my best buddy and a little ambitious, but he keeps me in shape.
I once painted a lot when I was younger, mostly acrylic on canvas, have always loved nature, and bought a D40 a couple of years ago to capture it. The D40 is a good landscape camera in my opinion. Decided to upgrade a year ago to a D90, and love it, but I still carry my D40 for the quick shot when fishing and so on.
OK, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Cagey75 8 years ago
Hey, I'm from Southern Ireland. originally Carlow, lower SE, but now up in the midlands - Co. Meath. I took photography up as a hobby less than 2 years ago, though I've had some form of camera at any stage during my life. Way back to old Agfa p&s film cams.

I bought a fuji bridge cam to learn the basics of manual controls, when that became too limited in range of control I knew I was ready for a dslr. I bought a used Sony A200, loved it, but unfortunately it suffered a knock and the body IS busted and the sensor shifted out of line.

I went hunting through used sites once again and found a great deal on a D200, I also managed to borrow a kit lens to get me going. I bought a Tamron 75-300 and a new lowepro 100aw bag.

Very happy with the D200, it's built like a tank and has very intuitive controls. Still learning as I go, but loving it :)

Hi. I,m Tim, a 34 year career firefighter who enjoys working in oils, pottery, metal and wood.
I became interested in Photography in 1975 when employed by Eastman Kodak spooling 35 mm film in the darkroom.
I don't have much of a digital portfolio and my ex wife destroyed all my 35 mm negatives by burning them in April 2005 ,minus a few negs and a proof or two. How ironic is that?
At any rate.. thats the "short and sweet"of it.
Looking to upgrade to a D-90 but I would like to see what the 5000 will do!..Thanks and happy shooting!!!

Patrick Sinot 3 years ago

My name is Patrick Sinot, 52 years.

Since 2010 i 'discovered' the wonderful world of Photography.

After having worked with an Olympus E600 i took the stap into the Nikon world...
I work with 2 camera's: a D3 and a D750. I like to experience and to explore. I'm not the guy of just studying a manual, but rather let the camera teach me by circumstance and subject. Trial and error so to speak.

I do not have any particular objectives i like to 'score' with, but i''m a bit more 'omnivorous' and very aware that Photography isn't just only about having a camera and take some pictures of some objects.

I like to look at other peoples work and i do not only compare by only 'best' pictures but also try to look at all different angles and aspects. Sometimes a not so good picture (sharp, framed, etc.) can tell a whole story or gets your attention by time.

I like to learn from feedback, because practice and study are important but feedback is the most needed ingrediënt for growing.

I wish you all good light.

Best, Patrick Sinot
