Do you have your photos from Japan hosted anywhere? I'd love to see them.
No, not at the moment. I'm currently in the process of trawling through all my photoes (all 10 thousand of them!), and saving the good ones in another place (plan to keep them all though =P). Then I need to edit them in photoshop, partly because my camera is shyt and the colours are no where near deep enough, and there isn't enough sharpness (something which has improved vastly since getting an SLR). Then I plan to host them in my flickr account. I'll send you the link when I'm done, but it will be a few weeks yet I should think.

Because there is nothing inspiring, intelligent or original to be found in anything here. I've posted something more constructive and precise in another thread 'photography habits' or something. Anyway. The content of these photographs is so so mundane, please god, I can't look at another sunset or flower. There is no thought behind anything, has anyone thought about why they're taking this photograph? Why are they showing it to people? What to they want people to gain from it, what influences this? What does it represent? Time? The death of time? Can a photograph ever represent time?
My god, there is such extensive theory behind photography, yet people do not pay attention, and carry on snapping away at that goddamn sunset.
Any idiot can be trained to perfect the technical use of a camera, digital or analogue, to get any result they desire. However where is the creativity, thought and intelligence?
But sometimes a picture doesn't have to be well thought out to show beauty, or too convey a mood. You could just be there, and bam you have a beautiful picture.
And who can argue with natural beauty?
Someone who has spent weeks composing a picture, could come out with hunk of crap picture.
This was taken soon after I started photography and got my 350D. There are probably a few technical improvements to be had still. I shot in JPEG then and was just learning to use photoshop.
Just remember, a very influential photographer once said, "Your first 10,000 photos are your worst." Everyone starts somewhere and not everyone wants to be a 'photographer'. Some just take pictures and there's nothing wrong with that at all; I just take pictures.
You lucky day ghost My bedroom is a damn sight harder to take a photo like that in than my Uni kitchen with its nice clear ceiling and stuff - I kept getting things like my teddy bear collection and wardrobe in the way
