The photography thread

Recommended Posts

I know we have a lot of photographers here on TGO, myself included.  There was another thread of this type a while back but it is so old a lot of the links to the photo hosting sites are no longer good so I thought that I would start a new thread so we could share our work with one another.  Please contribute your own work.  Here are a few of my favorites from the past couple of years.  I don't care if you use my pictures for private use, I would appreciate a PM if anyone intends to use them for any other purpose.

I will have to turn on my PC tomorrow to get a few good ones but I have one I did on my phone a while back with one of my G Shock watches with my Jeep in the background. G-Shock actually used this pic for their background on their North American facebook page for a while.

So

I'd like to go ahead and say I am not a photographer and all of the following pics were taken with a cell phone so take it easy on me.

Two of these are not like the others. What doesn't belong here? lol

Today's cell phones can take some fantastic shots.

Isn't that the truth! Apple's iPhone 6 has a superb auto white balance sensor that blows away many recent "real" cameras.

Hoping this thread blossoms; some nice shots already posted!

Are people pics allowed?  Maybe a little something different for you guys. :)

I cut my teeth in photography by being a photographer on the Dragon for three years.  I saw a lot of wild stuff and I literally have hundreds of pictures to prove it but this is one of my favorites from that time in life.  This happened to be a personal friend of mine who walked away from this accident completely unharmed.  He landed on the side of the road, stood up, and yelled at me "did you get that?"  And that is why I'm a firm believer in wearing good gear while riding motorcycles.

What an awesome shot! Glad he's ok. With the gear he's got on it looks like he walked out of the Thriller video lol.

Yes fantastic shot. It's that small slice of  history you might capture. I drive my wife and friends crazy with my camera. I'll step out of line and hold the shutter button down till what ever is happening is over. I've told her that her job is to make sure I don't get run over by an oncoming car or other traffic. We  were at The Grand Canyon and she's convinced if I fell over the edge I'd be holding the shutter button down till I hit bottom...

DUDE! You are my hero. That is some amazing work. I just bought my very first camera (Sony A6000) and downloaded Photoshop + Lightroom. I have very little idea how to use any of them, but I aspire to be like you.

As I just mentioned in a previous post, I just purchased my very first camera and downloaded Photoshop + Lightroom. I haven't attempted Photoshop, but I have toyed around with Lightroom a bit. 

 

Nothing like the quality we've seen above, but here are a few of my first shots and attempts at playing with Lightroom.

The two ducks is special!

The perspective of getting at the same level as the subject often yields a fine shot. Very nice. Edited by Djay3
