Photographers and Artists

A gorgeous day!!

Looks like we have a few photographers and artists in our midst so here's a place to talk about all photography, art, and related subjects.

I should mention that my son is 33 and he has the same problem. I don't think its got to do with the eyes. I think it has to do with the sun reflecting on that screen.

You're probably right but with my e-cam I can swivel the viewer to a different angle which I assumed would solve the problem but it doesn't. If I put my (new) glasses on, I can actually see what's in the viewer slightly better so think it's a mixture of both light refraction and bad eyesight! :lol: :roll: Oh well, such is life! :D

I don't have a swivel viewer with my camera - so I don't have as many choices as you!

Hello everyone, a new member to the board. Looking forward to getting to know you all. Here are pics I took recently, people say I should consider taking pics up professionally?

They are very nice. Where were they taken?

I always forget that people in other countries do not have highspeed. I don't have too many friends any more with dial-up, so I think that is excusable!

They were taken in Ontario with a 3.2 mega pix olympus camera.

Hi there ikennedy and welcome to BE.

Thanks for sharing your photos with us.
The second photo showing the walkway alongside the water had a very relaxing look to it and you have captured the feeling of spring very well.

The empty park bench in the foreground and the people having fun at the waters edge, along with the curve of the wall, all made for a nice shot.

I'd love to try number one (day trip) as a jigsaw, you'd go crazy :)
Nice pics.

Graeme's idea of making a jigsaw out of the first pic is great :shock:

Seriously, the pics are nice, but not moneymakers or even competition winners - so don't give up your job! Also, be aware that a pro photographer spends far more than half of his time doing things other than taking pictures - and if you aren't good at the non-photgraphy bit you'll be lucky to even cover your costs.

Thank for the kind words. I don't plan to give up my day job, and just showcasing what you can get out of a 3.2 pixels camera. Those aren't the best of my pics.

I just looked again at the photo Graeme said he would like as a jigsaw puzzle!

Not for me - I like jigsaw puzzles but not that hard!!
