Windows 7: Digital Photography?

Digital Photography?

I was wondering how many posters here are either professional or enthusiast Photographers?

Tell us about your self in this area?

What equipment do you use?
What type of photography do you like to do?
How long have you been at it?
What do you like most about it?

What are your current challenges? What is holding you back?

I am a Canon DSLR shooter. I have most of the prime lens line up as well a a good selection of L glass zooms. For camera bodies I shoot a 5d MK11 and a 7D.

Currently I shoot mainly portrait photography. Right now most of my work is in the area of Nudes and body scapes.

I have been shooting for several years

Photography gives me a escape from the daily grind. At photoshoots I seldom think about work or my troubles. I love to create images and love even more when my work gets praised by other photographers.

Currenlty my biggest challenge is finding time and money to chase my dreams.
I have access to beautiful models great equipment. I just need more time.

Window 7 and my Intel I7 PC have been wonderful and raise the bar with Adobe CS4 performace!

So thats me.... tell us all abouot your creative self! Maybe even add some recent work?

I am a hobbyist, and I tend to like to do landscape, nature or candid people shots.

I use a Sony Alpha 200 with a couple of low end (by most standards) lenses that do fine for me.

My biggest challenge is figuring out how to use the camera as more than a really great point and shoot camera.

I'm a hobbyist, though I've been shooting since 1982 and still use film cameras. You can check the link in my sig to see my website.

I'm looking to go digital, but haven't decided on which Nikon body to get. I have expensive tastes on a hotdog budget so...

I'm a very amateurish photographer, I use a Fujifilm S9600 transition camera (More than a compact less than an SLR). I've won a couple of local (very local!) competitions. It seams my talents lie in close ups of flowers and twilight shots.

P.S. as a note to anyone considering buying any Fujifilm camera, DON'T. The battery life is atrocious even without a flash and its standby time before it completely drains fresh batteries is 3 days.

If you still have your old AI-s or AF-d/AF-s lens for analog, should you look on a full frame as the D700...could be ecomomic for you...then slowly invest on a fully compatible digital lens.

What'd I really like is a full frame digital camera. However, If I don't get a full frame, I'll still use what I have for lens and compensate. Lens aren't an issue at this point.

Well depend how much you want to invest...D300s or D700 will be a good choice as you will be able to sell them back still for a good price.

35mm lens will be on D300s an 52,5mm lens...and so on.

Apperture will be prefered to be f:2 for an 35mm lens or f:1,4 for an 50mm Lens if using older lenses other than digital.

I'm seriously considering Nikonís D700. Though I've been shooting since 1982, really since 1980, I had a Canon system which I sold off in 19890 and didn't get back into photography until 2001, when I purchased my current Nikon System. My basic Nikon lenses are....

70-300 AF 70-300 ED
80-200 mm ED 2.8
AF-S 24-85 mm ED 3.5-4.5 G
AF-S 17-35 mm ED 2.8D
AF-S 28-70mm ED 2.8
AF 50mm 1.8D

I mainly shoot B&W now, though I do like experimenting with both color and B&W in Photoshop. It's time to make the digital move now that film is becoming harder to find and get processed, I don't do my own processing for various reasons, and scanning film is very time consuming. In short, it's easier to deal with pure digital files nowadays, especially since digital photography has come a long way.

I am an amateurist. I have a Kodak P850 camera. Nothing fancy but it takes nice photos.
I like taking pictures of scenery.
