G'day all I'm Martina an Irish girl brought up in Australia.
i got my first digital camera last July after my 40 b'day so I guess you could say I'm a late starter.
I have three beautiful daughters who are sick of posing for me, I live in a small town north of Adelaide on a half acre block (which every inch I think I've photographed). My children have also caught the photography bug from me you'll see some of their pics in my contacts (It would be really special if you could visit their page and leave them comments - they only like check twice a day to see if anyone has visited their photo's poor souls, they are big mac17, claire bear, and thisiserin)
Anyway if you have a few moments check out some of my pics and leave me some constructive comments.
I would really like to experminet with some HDR, I only have two lens' but would love to some micro work. oh gee I've talked allot, thanks for dropping by.

petelewin Posted 10 years ago. Edited by petelewin (member) 10 years ago
Hello everyone,
I'm always of the opinion that we never stop learning. Looking at the contributions made on this site and within this group, there is a huge learning curve ahead of me. I look forward to conversing, discussing, and looking at the excellent contributions made here.
I have rediscovered photography in my latter years. It is like being a child again always looking for challenges and trying to satisfy the curiosity. Exploring through the lens to capture a moment in time is like trying to define immortality.
I live in Alberta, Canada, a retired graphic and visual arts teacher, an avid fly fisherman and have countless other interests to pursue. Photography appears to be taking a place at the very top of my list and wish to participate very extensively into this world of image making. I look forward and wish to thank you for the opportunity of sharing my work with others here on Flickr.

Hi all.... I took a photography class in college, using the traditional 35mm manual camera. I've since then have upgraded to digital. Olympus C5500 and a Kodak Z612. Someday I would love to have myself a true DSLR.

craighagan PRO 10 years ago
Howdy, I'm Craig. I'm hoping to improve
my technique rather than playing the game I'm playing now which is shoot lots, then shoot more, and perhaps one will be good.

I've got a few cameras including a DSLR, but, I think that
the equipment is secondary to the fun. Some of my best
shots were taken with my worst camera.

If anyone browses my photostream, realize that it is crowded
with many things unrelated to my pictures and/or what i consider
keepers, so beware!

i've been loving the pictures i'm seeing here, and quite frankly a little sheepish about showing any of mine; but i'm definitely looking forward to learning!

Hi Poitr, Mel, Craig, Josh, Amber and Angie, welcome to the group!!!
I've had a look at all your pictures and they are really good!
Craig, from the number of the bottle of wine's picture i could say that you're either a collectionist or you just love wine!
Mel, there are some good pictures, but the size is too small and it's hard to see them in details!
Angie, these flower pictures are really beautiful!

I hope you'll all like the group, if there's anything you'd like to know feel free to ask! And do post your photos in the group's pool for others to see!
Keep shooting!!!

Hey ANDY! Thank you for joining BDP!

I checked out your photostream and you have great shots! I left a few comments...If you want more, join our thread : "Want MORE comments!?!? POST HERE!!! (read rules!)". Honestly, I feel the same way you do at times---"stuck for ideas" as you call it.he!he! What I do---I go through magazines, look for stunning shots that I hope to have somewhat my own version of someday...and then when I start visualizing it's one idea popping after the other! sometimes though due to certain limitations I am not able to bring it all to "life" right away but the idea is there! Another thing I do is I go around the house---outside, inside...look for what may be an interesting subject and try to "experiment" (">) I hope this helps, enjoy!

Hi DEB! Welcome to BDP! Another pinoy onboard (">)

You have a great cam for a start, I can just imagine how excited you are! experimenting is a really great way of discovering things your cam is capable of doing. Just like you I am also learning about photography through reading books and surfing the net---gosh! it's one click after the other! You might wanna check out our thread "A thread for that single consolidated source of information!" for informative links! I hope you enjoy the group, we are glad you found us! (">) Mabuhay!

Hello FRANK! Nice to have you join us here at BDP!

I checked your photostream and you have a couple of shots that interests me...I am sure you have heard of the saying "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder"---there is no certain guidelines set to make or break a shot although there are tips that can help it be more appealing, artistic, eyecatching, etc, etc, etc...Join our discussions and make friends with other members, I am sure you will find what you are looking for sooner that you expected! If there is anything at all that we can help you with just send us a flickrmail or post a topic! (">)

Hola Percy! Buenvinida a BDP!

Congratulations on your winning! It must feel so great to be recognized right away at a field you started discovering...and Congratulations on your newly purchased cam too!(">) don't worry---I won't tell a soul that you bought a panasonic, this is just between you and me!ha!ha!ha! BTW, cheers to your new hobby! I hope you like it here in BDP!

I upgraded to a dslr (Nikon D80) at the end of November 2006 although I've been playing with a digital point-n-shoot Kodak for around 3 years. I finally got to the point where I knew I wanted to take my photography to a better level of skill and quality.

Looking forward to learning new stuff and hopefully helping others.

Hey, this is the Jon half of my name...My wife and I are Aussies living in Washington DC for work at the moment. We both love travelling and have just decided to bite the bullet and upgrade from P&S to a full DSLR as we also have a passion for photography. Its a learning experience for sure! We are using a 400D with the kit lens and a old sony cybershot. While we mostly use our photostream as a pictoral travel blog for our freinds and family, there are several pics in the Fav's folder there I particularily like. I look forward to your feedback!

Hi folks, I am Dayland and I am in Arlington Texas. I have always enjoyed photography, but I got out of practice since I had to put my hobby on the back burner while I raised my kids. They are teenagers now so I am ready. My wife just bought me a Canon Powershot S3 which is my first digital camera with any bells and whistles. I hope to start practicing this weekend. The shots I have posted so far have been done with our point and shoot Kodak Easyshare C310. I hope to add many more in the weeks and months to come. I also am enjoying seeing everyone elses work. I hope it inspires me.

Hello everyone!

I am Franck from Chester, UK. I've also got myself a D40 (Hi Rob!) as a first DSLR. And reading this thread, I am after the same thing than lot of other members.

Would this be the right place to reverse engineer a few shots I am very proud of but am not entirely how they came so good (imho)?

Best example is: Water lilly (botanical_garden_03)

I had no idea it would turn so well, but if I wanted to repeat this, what should I be looking for? Where did I get this sharp but yet not so sharp background, and why are the colours so colorfull?

On the other hand, could it actually have been better ? Here is another shot putting it all in context : botanical_garden_02. I tried playing with the yellow lilly in the background but the angle was awkward.

I have a few more like this, so this kind of exercise would be useful.

In the mean time, I am going to go through all the info threads and add a few of my shots to the pool.


PS: sorry for the long post!

Adreniline controls my life and the thrill of life pumps my adreniline. But i am not addicted to adreniline but i am addicted to the joy of life. I don't understand people who have no drive in there constant persuite of happiness. Everyday i wake i feel the need to do something over the top to make me smile on the inside and share my joy with those close to me. But most of all i suppose i'm looking for a differance in a constant routine run existance of everyday life.

check out ma work so far leave comments but please go easy just starting. cheers!

hi Franck, welcome to the group! I've had a look at both shots you posted above and I like the first one more than the other...the colour is really beautiful:-)
If there are other pictures you'd like to have an opinion on, do post your picture in our discussion "want more comments, post here!!" or if there are many pictures, feel free to start a thread!

hi wring! Thanks for joining the group! I really liked the first picture of the Eiffel Tower, it was quite different from the ones I usually see! I hope you'll learn something from all the members here!

welcome to the group HappyMaddison.pro! I've had a look at your work and found some cool shots! I hope you'll find something interesting in the group! Enjoy...

HI, I'm pretty new to photography, I've been snapping shots for about the past 3 years with the same Kodak Easyshare 2mp point and shoot ( that will explain some of my pictures) but Id like to get into it more, (especially since the little guy didn't survive my last caving trip) share what little I have and get some feedback, as well as see some awesome photographs! Thanks!
hello... just joined the group. Looking forward to getting feedback!

Hello, I'm new to Flickr and fairly new to taking photos for fun. Would love your feedback. I just point and shoot with my Kodak Easyshare and am using Picasa2 for cropping and tweaking. Glad I found this group. Some of the others are a bit SCARY!
