Default Photography buffs?

Any other photography buffs on the forums? I'm not a pro but do photography as one of my hobbies. Current lineup is a Nikon D3s with Nikon 85mm 1.4D, 35 mm 1.4G, 24mm 1.4G and 70-200mm VR II.

I do a lot of photography for work. I have the D300S, D70, D50. You have a great camera. What do you like to shoot most?

And you are in IL, how cool. I love to do city photography and people mostly. My biggest problem is that I have not had all that much time lately. It kills me as I love doing it. You have some nice gear yourself. I just sold my D90 a few ago. It was a great camera and the camera that really inspired my passion. The D3s is an amazing camera as I love to shoot natural light (I bought an SB-700 flash a few months ago and it has never made it out of the box yet lol) and low light photography. Shooting the city and street life at night is fun as well. I try to get my friends to take their camera off of auto mode and learn the manual settings. To make "art", you need to shoot manual....and RAW

Agreed. That is why i love me D300S there is no auto setting. Keeps others hands off of it. I do a lot of studio work and product photography. I have a shooting table and a bunch of great mono lights. Post some of your work. We will see if we can bring others out to share in the hobby.

Ever since getting a Pentax K1000 in Junior High I've been a fan.
I now have a Canon 30D (many years old) that has done well, althought my last several travels I've actually just stuck with a Canon PowerShot SX200IS (the SLR was taking up too much room in my backpack).

I have some travel pics of all types on my travel blog: MTonMyMind.blogspot.com. About a year ago I quit my job, travelled to Papua New Guinea, Cambodia, Thailand, and Asutralia, then came back and started working again. Those posts/pics are about 2/10.

My latest 'documentation of life' item is a GoPro Hero that just came today. I'm expecting my first Lamborghini to arrive Sunday or Monday and I want to document the first roar of the engine and its subsequent unloading.

As one who writes magazine articles for a living (it's all I've ever done, really), I do a lot of photography. I've had about 26,000 photos published but I don't consider myself a "pro" in the strictest sense of the term. I'm currently using an old Pentax K20d for which I have three Pentax lenses. I shoot exclusively in jpeg and do only simple editing like cropping, and fiddling with exposure and contrast, but that's about it. When the state of digital was 3.3 megs, I had some of my pix blown up to two page spreads and they looked great. With 14 to 20 megs now the norm for pro-quality cameras, you can blow `em up to damn near billboard size. Digital photography changed my life to a greater extent than computers and word processing!

alright we have a couple great members involved. Now let's start sharing some of the work. Here is a selection of a couple recent shoots. The first is Ivan Radcliff, US Olympic Bobsled athlete, shot for a magazine ad. Most of these are advertising photos.
