A few shots I took this summer that captured the innocence of a 2 year old.

Mt Spokane Photography I totally agree. I have pulled back a little on promoting Linkedin as well since the site was hacked. Sometimes it's hard to network with all of the security issues ironically it's a little bit of a paradox, since you want to post your personal info but at the same you want to shield yourself from the darker elements on the internet.

Animal Kingdom / DragonFly Series
« on: August 20, 2012, 10:24:21 PM »
A perfect landing on the antenna of my car. This beauty actually waited patiently for me to get my camera and almost seems to pose for me. It was as if she was looking at me with equal curiosity. Both shots came about 20 seconds apart. The one is framed with the soft blue sky and the second was taken from a different angle. Then after she flew away she came back for another series. A true gift as I have always wanted to get a shot like this of these beautiful creatures.

Hey SomeGuyInNewJersey,

I feel your pain. Nothing worse than feeling like you are left out. I think that posting your LinkedIn UN and something about yourself here may help you out.  Can't hurt.

Street & City / Bench of Mine
« on: June 07, 2012, 08:45:42 PM »
While at a conference in Baltimore I snapped this shot as my camera was sitting on a bench next to me.  What was interesting about this shot was that I never even framed it up. I simply looked at my settings and clicked. It was almost 1 week later that I looked at the shots on my card to find this one. I love it when that happens .

Street & City / Re: Time lapse photography
« on: June 07, 2012, 08:37:52 PM »
Personally I like to go out for time lapse right during rush hour for capturing headlights & tail lights for the obvious reasons of great light streams. However, I try and get out around 3am to 4am for the ultimate privacy. Only problem with this time of night, as in any city is that  you run into is the type of people that are typically up at this hour. Trust me it's not typically other photo geeks trying to score a shot. My advice is if you need to shoot in places that are not that secure and your set up with your camera on your sticks, that you bring a large cardboard box that you can fold and unfold. It's great for blocking your expensive camera gear from prying eyes and you can step back from a safe distance and monitor your capture. Also remember that you don't always need to have your tripod extended all the way. Being lower to the ground (if the shot is able) keeps you a little more undercover.

If your shooting say from rooftops or such (which I highly recommend) this is 99% better for security and image composition quality (subject depending).

What are you shooting mostly? I can offer up some more tips if I know what you're trying to capture.

Here is a shot that I took of a "Bottle of Dawn soap detergent" Nothing spectacular, but it has been one of my most commented abstract images. Let me know what you think.

Wow I really like this shot. You totally encapsulated the feeling of overcoming something dramatic.  I agree with RLPhoto and any image no matter how manipulated is all about the final emotion it delivers.

Wow, what a fascinating and informative thread. I have been waiting to make a decision on this exact topic and I can't tell you how much this helped me.

I will post my experience as soon as I pull the trigger.

Thanks again!!
