    Photography Thread

    So who else on here likes taking photos? I haven't been able to take any outside lately because of my ill health, but its something I used to like doing.

    My present camera is a Canon PowerShot SX210 IS and I don't know how to use all of the settings on it yet.

    These first photos are taken on two visits to Cuerden Hall Park.

    Re: Who else on here does photography?

    Spoiler tags, please

    Anyway, I used to take photos more or less half-proffesionally back like when I was 13... or maybe 14. In the end, I never went seriously down that road, and it just stayed a hobby.

    I did take some good pictures back in the days, though

    Re: Who else on here does photography?

    I'd like to see them, as long as they aren't HDR. HDR stands for 'horribly deformed representations', because it looks like someone's taken a perfectly good photo and let a child scribble all over it with a crayon lol.

    Do you have any favourites out of the photos I posted?

    I liked the two macro shots. The one with the tree has something as well. So does #4.

    Thank you. Lots of people like the awesome tree trunk and the lakeside scene.

    The pictures by the lake remind of a place in Warwickshire called Compton Verney; it has a lake and trees surrounding similar to your photographs. I have a few eastern european friends who are really into photography and are always experimenting with different settings on their cameras, you should try to do the same too!

    Thanks for sharing! ^_^

    These were taken a bit further north than Warwickshire lol. And only one of by the pictures is taken of a lakeside, the other one's taken by the dragonfly pond.

    Some people are actually surprised that I don't know a single thing about cameras themselves, lol.

    Re: Photography Thread

    I find the people who don't try or have next to no experience with camera take some the best pictures because they don't think about it too much.

    That's pure luck only.

    Finding the right scenary, the right angle, ISO, focus, lighting, that's the kind of stuff you plan and don't just hope for it to appear randomly.

    Yep there's a lot to be perfected, but my picture composition is a natural skill I was born with.

    I have a flickr account, should you want to browse it : http://www.flickr.com/photos/30275111@N06/page11/ (the last pages have a lot of HDR though, but I hope some won't be simply 'horribly deformed representations').

    I do too, A Lake Scene (very lively and I like the contrast) & A Fallen Tree Trunk (the kind of photo that allows me to see faces ^^). Thank you for sharing !
