Cool photos Patrick. I like the tourists crammed in the taxi photo - with the driver waiving. The inside of the church photo makes me dizzy. My favorite is the woman with the scarf smoking while enjoying a glass of (what appears to be chilled) wine. Very "Paris". Her French appearance, the colors on the glass, and the out of focus guy behind her are what make the photo great. Thanks for sharing.
dude, these are some sweet shots. My favs are:
yellow shirt :)
looking up at building
HDR of tower
motorcycle (DOF is sweet)
They were all great.
Hi The Dude,
What kind of equipment do you use? I am thinking of selling some watches to fund myself to get a proper DSLR.
Thanks for sharing the pictures. I love your compositions.
The equipment one uses is irrelevant to the resulting image quality. What is a proper DSLR? A Canon 5D is really inexpensive at the moment but Canon cameras are so difficult to use compared to the alternatives out there.
I have seen images captured with simply P&S cameras that blow away most of what I do (If not all) It is the person behing the camera which gets the images... Not what you use but how you use it.
Once you have a camera the first thing you need to do is learn everything about it and mainly its limitations and how to overcome them... There are a couple of things I recommend to people who want to buy a DSLR, the first one is be ready to spend just as much in post processing software and courses/seminar/classes about post processing as you spend on your photo equipment, second one is to get an old light meter and compare what the camera meters and what the light meters - the best way to learn about metering.
To answer your question, I use Nikon cameras and bodies, specifically the Nikon D3 and a lot of lenses, pro glass to Ai-S lenses... Your best bet is to go to a big camera store and try different models and brands and buy the one you prefer, Nikon works for me - I am sure Canon would work for me as well as Nikon, it is not the Camera but how you use it.
Feel free to e-mail me any question you may have, a good entry level SLR is the Nikon D80, a notch well above is the Nikon D300 (Which I have) and even better still for its high iso performance and full frame sensor is the new latest and greatest Nikon, the D700 ... but you could get for half the price of a D700 a Canon 5D, find what works for you, irregardless of the brand.
I was in Paris a few years back. Took some photos with a Minolta P&S. Outdoor photos were OK but the indoor ones came out blur. Couldn't capture some of splendor of the interior of some of the most amazing architecture.
