I noticed something that I was hoping for... The focusing on my DA* lenses is MUCH better now. I'm not sure what they did, but I'm very happy now:D

I didn't want anyone to think that you ran me off after I posted a few photos. I'm just trying not to admit to myself that the battery charger for my K-7 is somewhere between Atlanta, GA and West Palm Beach, FL. :(

Flash photography is one of my many weak points.
It is good in that it gets people off guard.


Try reading through http://www.strobist.com

I know that David (the blog writter and owner) shoots Nikon, but his advice is mostly universal. Using a P-TTL cord (or radio trigger) and getting the flash off the camera makes a world of difference.

I love the PP you did on this. It's vivid, yet looks almost hand drawn.

Buy a K7 & get a $100 lens rebate

The rebate form is in the K7 Box. I got $125.00 USD back for buying a DA*16-50 and an AF540-FGZ when I bought my K7. It took about 4 weeks to receive the cards. I used the VISA cards to buy my Epson 1400 printer.:D

After UPS left my Sigma Flash (now sold to a friend) in front of my door in the middle of the day for "Signature Required", I now have them ship to my work address so I can sign for it. I have also found that they will deliver to a business address by 10:00am in most cases. Seems to me they don't care about the residential or 'occassional package receivers', they just focus on business.

I love the contrast of the 'thugish' look of the guys behind the 'diva mom' in the first one.

The second one just draws me to it. I'm not sure what it is about it, but that's half of why I like it!

NIK Silver EFX looks great, but since I bought almost everything you see in my signature all at once just 2 months ago; I would have to pay for a divorce lawyer to go along with the software once my wife found out. :)

bbluesman, thank you for your comments. I am truely looking for constructive feedback like this. Right now I think my issue is getting a decent B&W conversion set up in Lightroom or Photoshop. The automatic settings don't seem to give me what I'm looking for and I haven't had too much time to play around with it.

I agree that the B&W would be much better for a lot of the shots, I guess I just need to sit down and hone my PP conversion skills a little more.:o

These were taken before the last ones I posted. Let me set this up for you... Daytona Beach in September, 1:00am block party. Just me, my K7, DA* lenses and an AF-540FGZ. They turned out better than I thought they would for being in the middle of the night in the open.

Everyone assumed I was from the local press, so it made it easier to get into the crowd without the 'evil eyes' looking back at me. And yes, if they asked I was honest and said that I did not work for the local paper.

Again, comments welcomed and appreciated.

Thanks. I've enjoyed your work for a while now, so your compliments mean a lot to me. I have some other stuff I'm sorting through that I'll try to post later.

No worries. I work in healthcare as well so I understand. You reply wasn't late, I've just been sneaking online at work more when there is some down time.:eek:;)

I wish I had the patience to wait once I ordered something. I could have gotten my stuff shipped free if I waited 7-10 days. However, my impatience got my stuff shipped to me Overnight Air:D... with the price tag to go along with it:fedup:.

I can agree, but I beleive that the Not Safe For Work was intended for photos that are too sexy (lingerie & bikini) and nudes. This should have been placed in the 'Other' catagory.
