For Photographers of All Skill levels since 2005
OK Guys, I know I am on the other side of the planet now. But I'd value some opinions.I remember when we went to Moab a couple of years back as a club, there was someone there with a Tamron 28-300mm…Continue
Ok. I know, I am getting lazy. I have now gone to a monthly challenge. I haven't had time to do the Lines photo that I wanted. What I had planned, was to find a wizened person that had lots of lines…Continue
Hi everyone,I was thinking it must be about time for a new challenge, so I have been trying to come up with ideas, and decided to go back to shapes... Well maybe... You interpret it how you like..…Continue
Hi all, I am Colin Foyle. I was born in London, England, way back when.... I seem to remember being interesting in photography from about 7 years on. Starting with a little Kodak instamatic camera, that took the old 110 film cartridges. Sometime in my teens, I picked up a Pentax SLR, the later a Canon T50 SLR. Around my mid 20s I remember thinking that I was tired of carrying all these lenses and camera equipment, and sold it all. Then went into Videography. For a little while I owned a Wedding and Event Videography company in Utah, but it seems that nobody wants to take video as seriously as video when it comes to Weddings. So I got out of that business. It wasn't a full time job anyway. My career, like many others is in IT. So video and photography are more hobbies than anything else.
I have had various point and shoot digital cameras over the years, and love how they are nice and small, with some having 10x zoom lenses, and now get up to 12 or 14 megapixels. For about a year I have been thinking about getting a DSLR camera. So did some research, and decided a couple of weeks ago to buy a Canon 60D, with 18-135mm zoom, and 70-300mm zoom. I have also got hold of a ultra wide angle zoom of 10-22mm. Love my Canon. But want to get more confident with it, and get off of that Auto setting. Starting to read books on DSLR photography, and saw this group, that seemed at one point to be based in Layton, where I live, and thought I'd better join up and perhaps get out to some of your meets and learn more. Hope you will all help me along the way...
I also play keyboards and synthesizers. Up until recently was in a local Layton band, but recently I decided to quit as I wanted to play different music to the direction they were going in.
Photography will always only be a hobby for me, so I don't expect to earn any money from it, just have lots of fun.
Throughout my teenage years, and older, I was always training in Martial Arts, have done Taekwondo Karate, Judo, Shotokan Karate. Until I damaged my big toe (don't laugh - it was very painful, but you should have seen the other guy!). A few years ago I found an Aikido club in Ogden. But stopped after a little while when they moved locations, but have now started up again. Hope to get some action pictures from that group some time later in the year, when the finishing touches on the dojo are completed.
That's probably enough waffling about me... Got to get to grips with that camera....
so, I was crawling the web today, and came across the Mumford Time Machine. No, it isn't something out of Doctor Who, nor Back to the future. I seem to vaguely remember Doug mentioning this device to me when we were playing with water drops. Is this what you mentioned Doug?
Anyway, looking at the device on this site (if links appear in this forum): https://bmumford.securewebsites.com/photo/camctlr.html
I want to take some photos of Barns, and old rusty vehicles. But I don't know where to go to find them. I have seen several photos placed on the site, but don't know where they were taken from. I'd prefer northern Utah (Bountiful up to north Ogden, or Morgan/Huntsville). I really don't want to waste gas driving all over the place looking for something on the off-chance that I'll see something (especially while driving).
So, can anyone tell me some good locations (as close to…Continue
