Joel Olives. Get yours at
Hello, and welcome to my flickr profile.

I picked up my first decent point and shoot camera for Christmas last year (2007). I haven't put the camera down since. I've upgraded a few times and currently have the following gear:

* Canon 40D
* Sigma 105mm f2.8 Macro
* Canon 70-200mm F4 L
* Sigma 18-50mm F2.8
* Praktika 50mm f1.8 with EOS adapter

I like to just get out in to nature and walk around with the camera. I live outside of Houston, TX... It isn't exactly the most photogenic city, but there is beauty to be found everywhere.

Well, that's enough about me. I'm very thankful for the flickr community. I've learned so much since I've been here. I always welcome your comments and critiques!

    "From the first moment I saw Joels photos I was in awe! His flower shots are just amazing and so bokehlicious! His photostream is just full of delights, his understanding of light, composition and processing make his work outstanding and an inspiration! I look forward to seeing much more of Joels work."

    "Joel has been one of my favorite flickr friends and photographers since I have joined . From the moment I set eyes on his work I was definitely" In love". His photographs are music to the eyes . Joel is also not afraid to experiment with processing and it's wonderful to see what he will come up with next. I find whatever he does is always understated and subtle. His color sense is outstanding. His bokeh, lighting and compositions are always top of the line.

    I'm excited and blessed that I am able to be connected with Joel, he is a visionary artist and a very supportive contact."
