    I'm just curious who on BYC is into photography. Perhaps if you'd like to tell what camera you have, some of your favorite methods, and maybe some shots?

    Personally, I have some cheap digital camera that I only use for dangerous things that hurt cameras, like road trips with buddies and school events. I also have a Nikon D5000 for more artsy pictures. My mother and I share lenses when we get the chance and she has a Nikon D50 and a D60. We're both in the same wildlife photography club, so we switch cameras on occasion during safaris.
    If you'd like to see some of my pictures, they're at MaggieRae's Pictures .

    Thanks!

    I love taking photos with my "cheap" (for a camera of course) digital camera just for fun though. I'm going to be in photography this next semester at school though.

    MY camera is a Canon Powershot A590 IS. Not the best camera but it works fine. My parents have a fabulous Canon EOS Rebel (not sure if that's the name). Almost every picture it takes is a great photo. I like photography!

    I LOVE photography but I am not very knowledgeable about it. I know I have a good eye though. My camera is the Canon Rebel xTi 10.2 mp and it was expensive.

    I love taking close up shots. I just wish I had a real camera and a real macro lens. For now I just have a point and shoot Cannon PowerShot A710IS.

    That spider looks like a Muppet!!!! He's actually cute! And I hate spiders. I love wildlife, like the verbena and daisies in my pics. I have some of cactus too, but not many people appreciate desert life like I do.

    Beautiful pictures! I bought a very expensive and hard to manipulate digital camera and I get so frustrated with it that I have lost interest in photography. My best pics I took with a cheap 35MM that cost like 10 bucks. I love black and whites.

    I like taking pictures around the farm. I've got a couple of Kodak cameras...nothing too expensive.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Quote:Mine is expensive and digital, but it is pretty much dummy proof. The danged dial has icons on it for different settings. I mostly use the auto, with whatever icon choice I want, like still life, action, portrait, etc.

    Katy - I have ALWAYS loved you photos!!!!!
