    Photography Thread
    Alright guys the "one track" thread is :cool: but it's for pics of singletrack....
    This thread is open for any pics... doesn't have to be mtb pics.
    I enjoy photography and on occasion will take out the big gun to shoot... Most of the pics I post are iPhone shots which leave a lil to be desired...
    So let's see it... Post your favorite shots you've taken.

    I took it a couple of years ago on a trip to Paris. My wife and I took a lot of pics on that trip (200 to 400 a day).

    Here is my contribution. Was working on a friends computer at her house when I heard a weird noise in her backyard area (she lives in an apartment complex that is adults only and has a small wild animal refuge). Well I turned to her and said "You have... Peacocks?!" Sure enough there was the male right outside her back door showing off for the girls. Made it my desktop background but you get the idea..

    These were all taken while I was out riding.




    Caterpillar sitting on my hydro-pack. It tucked its head into its body when I touched it.


    Me riding in heavy rain.


    Best upgrade to a bike I've ever made. This sticker increased my ability on the bike 100%.

    An old adding machine I found on the floor of an abandoned building. Over saturated to bring out all the funkiness I saw in it.

    Recently got back into photography after about a 10 year hiatus, just like MTBing. I think the 2 are related, at least they go well together. I have a canon SLR, looking to buy a DSLR next year after a new bike and my wedding for use on the honeymoon. We're going to Glacier for a week, so I'll have tons of stuff to take pictures of! Especially since I prefer nature photography to anything else. Nature makes for the best photos!

    These are some photos taken on a hike with my fiance yesterday.

    ^ 1st shot the flash is too hot. 2nd is much better, but you could use some fill on the back of the truck or bring the flash around a little more.

    Is that your bobber on Flickr??? Pretty cool if it is...

    Government Hanger
    One of the Government hangers at McCarren field left a door cracked open at about 1am this morning. I couldn't help but be tempted.
    It looked so "Archangel".
    It was sterile in there, with no tool chests or any other normal hanger stuff, except of course the planes themselves.

    Hey, take a look at this LINK. If you have the time, and the restaurant (location) will let you, you can take this shot / location up a notch. Again, if you have the time and needed software.

    I've shot things (cars, buildings, etc.) in this way several times.

    Got a Nikon D40 (piece of ****) a few years ago. Been playing around a lot with HDR since. Here are some of my favorites. First 2 are in the Philippines, Second 2 are in Hong Kong, Last is in NC. The panorama is 3 layers of 6 images so 18 total. The other images are 3 layers.

    A Couple Favorites
    Here are two of my favorites. There is nothing better than a polished aluminum mountain bike--except maybe a polished DC-3. The Marine helo was shot in the dark using a long exposure and with the help of some airport flood lights. Both photos were shot with a Canon 40D and EF-S 17-85 IS.

    Pulling out a relative oldie. Shot with a Toyo 45A field camera to T-MAX 100 sheet film, processed using "zone system" principles.

    Very cool! I am currently working with a 4x5 Shen Hao. I love it working with LF cameras.

    Thank's Amador! :thumbsup: Been at it along time now. 4x4, 8x10, 120..... These days though, pretty much digi, though I do miss working in the darkroom (many years in a commercial one).

    Yeah, I have a Canon 5D Mark 11 that I use primarily, but when the conditions are right I will break out the 4x5! There is something about working with film that you just don't get with digital.
