A book in Pictures

My grandson (aka Litte Man)  has me take him to the fire station EVERY SINGLE DAY!  Consequently I have a boatload of pictures.  Walking up to the fire truck, touching the fire truck, climbing into the fire truck.  You catch my drift, right?  I am thinking about writing a children's book for him about :Fireman Sam.  It just so happens these are his initials...Shiner Austin Moody.  What do you think?Sparkling Thoughts,Linda...more

Tough Decisions

As I'm sure you have realized, digital means we take a lot of photos, hundreds and thousands of photos.  If you're like us, you save them all, just in case!I'm learning that we have to make some tough decisions and start editing photos as we load them on the computer, if we wait, well, we end up where we are now, a hard drive slugging along with 10,000 photos on it.  Most of them BAD.I save all my family photos, even the terrible ones, but the other photos?  The ones that didn't turn out.  They need to be trashed....more

Project 365 - 365 days, 365 photos

Project 365 is about taking one photo a day for 365 days and posting it somewhere where people can look at them. Beyond that, there are no rules, although some groups of people have rules in their individual groups. Project 365 is on Twitter (using #365), Facebook, Flickr, and, no doubt, elsewhere. There are dozens of groups at least in various places doing this, and people are all over the map in their stage of the project. ...more

Suggestions/Opinions Needed

Just wondered if anyone had time to share their opinion on a lens for my camera. I figure you are the best people to ask, but I completely understand if you are too busy! I want to take pictures of my girls, our family, our friends children/families with bright colors and a blurry background. I am deciding between the 50mm 1.8 (under $100), 50mm 1.4 ($370) and maybe the 85mm 1.8 ($410). I am reading TONS of info/opinions online, I think I'm leaning towards the 50mm 1.4 though. ...more

Hi Jennifer,

I have the 85mm 1.8 and it's one of my favorite lenses. I just love the ...more

Does anyone still shoot film?

I'm sure everyone has heard the news of Kodak retiring Kodachrome film today. Although the inevitable Paul Simon references have already gotten boring, and I have personally never used Kodachrome film because I never had the equipment nor the skill level to do so, I think we can all agree that some iconic and impressive imagery has been recorded with Kodachrome over the years. With that, I ask: does anyone here still shoot film as well as digital? What do you use film for as compared to what you shoot with digital? ...more
