    Looking for a tripod on a budget, help please

    Hi everyone, I am still loving photography and feel my photos are improving but I am still yet to get a tripod. I would ideally need one that can reach around 5 foot in height at least, if this is what I need for studio photos. If I need something bigger advice would be much appreciated...

    Can anyone recommend a good quality printing service?

    Hello everyone, I hope you are all well and have had a good Christmas. I want to get some of my photos printed in various sizes, I just am unsure which websites offer good quality prints. They will be various sizes I am printing, to give to family members and friends. There seem to be a lot...

    Pic(s) you took today - an open thread

    Wasn't today, was 2 days ago but just put them on my Mac and edited the raw file in capture NXD. My friend has been a big help modelling, and enjoys doing it. I wanted to practice with my backdrop. Sorry for the shadows and lighting, I haven't yet been able to afford anything else so am using...

    Yesterday nearly went very wrong- sad world we live in.

    Unfortunately I live here. We moved to get away from London when I was younger, as we used to have a caravan on kings ourselves! We used it in the summer and school breaks for holidays. My family liked here compared to London, so we moved. It's turned into a right S**thole now, people are...

    Beginner Filter not fitting my lens.

    There is that symbol, I Never checked and wasn't aware this was the diameter of the thread. At least I now know for the future, I just ordered the lens without realising there were 2 different ones with different sizes.

    Beginner Filter not fitting my lens.

    I know it's a joke, but I'm pretty broke at the moment. A new lens will be purchased as soon as I can afford it for my needs ;)

    Beginner Filter not fitting my lens.

    Ahh balls, it is 55! Thats strange though, I have the D3500 which I would of expected to be the newer version so smaller. Hopefully the seller will be understanding of my mistake.

    Well as long as your real name isn't John, you're not my Dad lol. I don't know mine and have been trying to find him for years, but I was born in London and not from a Canvey Shag lol. Nothing has changed on that front, easy girls everywhere! I wholeheartedly accept your apology if it was one of...

    Beginner Filter not fitting my lens.

    Hi everyone, I bought a filter online for my Nikon 18-55 f 3.5-5.6G VR as I lost the lens cap, and thought a filter will save me taking it on and off all the time. However, it turned up today, it says it is a 52MM filter but when I try to put it on, it fits inside but doesn't screw in, and...

    You know what, you are right, I had completely forgotten it had changed. I said to the lady when I am at a level to get paid for my work, I will gladly take out another check. I am not getting payed for my work and am just enjoying my hobby at the moment. When I was at work I knew plenty of...

    Where are you from mate? Canvey is getting worse and worse. I felt safer at Notting hill carnival with my camera than where I live! I am/was no angel when I was younger though and I admit that, so I feel a bit safer walking around being known by people. Luckily I know a lot of people on...

    Yesterday nearly went very wrong- sad world we live in.

    Thinking back, I probably did drop myself in it, even though I meant no trouble. My thought process isn't the best due to my brain damage, but I will be aware for the future and just trust my feelings if something feels off. I just didn't want to take the pictures, then they tell someone, and...

    @jpgreenwood , that is a beautiful thing to hear. We really are lucky in the lottery of where we were born, we could easily have been one of those villagers. Just seeing themselves on a screen bought them joy. @tijuana taxi , I do think it is to do with all this PC rubbish, and also most women...

    Yesterday nearly went very wrong- sad world we live in.

    @woof woof , I do think some of the kids genuinely wanted a photo, while a few of the others were out for trouble. Theres a big problem with gangs of youths on Canvey at the moment, the older ones that came were some of them so I guess they was their younger siblings. I was glad the way I...

    Yesterday nearly went very wrong- sad world we live in.

    Hi everyone, I'm a bit peeved with something that happened yesterday, and essentially being accused of being a paedophile until I spoke to the parent of some kids. I was in my local town centre practising, taking shots of buildings etc that I will upload to a facebook Canvey island then and now...
