    Hey guys! Just wanted to gloat. Super proud of myself. Graduated with a Bachelor with Honors in Photography. And an embarrassing pic

    Thunderstorm Photography.

    Focus to infinity. Stop your lens down and your ISO until you can get a roughly well exposed image (under expose rather than over) and have your shutter open for roughly 20-30 seconds. Don't forget your tripod. Keep shooting!

    How were these done?

    Precisely. Get street dancers or break dancers and it's pretty much controlled falling.

    Is the winner of this pinhole anyone on here?

    I was given one by the BBC. I'd proceeded to sell it on eBay for £96 because I wasn't a film photographer at the time. How I regret that.

    Group Print Exchange - Sign up over, list of who to send to is up

    You will! I'm having a huge ordeal at the moment with money, and I don't have access to the darkroom for another week, neither! But it will arrive, I promise!

    What legal action can i take?

    Have you said anything to them? i.e. The people who allowed it to be put up? 'Who put it up, etc' Have you called the people who are advertising?

    Camera Travel Insurance?

    They won't cover for being outside of the UK for 3 months! Le sigh.

    Camera Travel Insurance?

    Awesome. They quoted £85 for the year, but that doesn't include my laptop (I think I'll get that with my personal insurance). Does anyone know of a company that will insure on a per month basis? £85/Year Sounds good to me, but a little overkill if I'm only there for 3 months.

    Camera Travel Insurance?

    Hey guys. I'm going to be working abroad in Canada for 3 months - I'm wanting to take my camera kit. It should consist of a 5D Mk II and a 17-40 f/4 L. Amongst other things like tripod/etc I think the total value of the camera kit & laptop should come close to £4,500. Does anyone know...

    How many photography students?

    Oh, well - I did hide them. I have a lot of personal stuff I've uploaded (friends/family) and a lot of weak photography, bla bla bla. I just felt I've used it a little like a scrapbook and not a portfolio... And whilst I don't want it as a portfolio of my work (my site should be that..) I...

    It's not worth checking out, I deleted everything and have started posting more refined stuff (By started, I mean I've got one up...) Thanks though :)

    How many photography students?

    Oh definitely! But they usually drop out within the first year, or are kicked out by the end of it. p.s. I added you as a contact on Flickr, I hope you don't mind - good work.

    How many photography students?

    I suppose I'm taking for granted the seminar sessions we had when we first started the year (I did this twice at two seperate Uni's). In both we were taught the basics of the camera and in the University I am at now, we were given the task of doing independant research on the history of...

    How many photography students?

    You see, you call it pretentious, but that's based on the fact that you believe a picture of a rocket is just a picture of a rocket. Should the picture you took simply be that, then sure - writing nonesense about it to give it a higher status than it should have = pretentious. But the idea...

    How many photography students?

    Don't blame the University for the lack of technical knowledge. And don't blame the University for producing theory based photographers. That's what going to Uni is for, for putting some ideas behind your work, and doing so in a manner that doesn't constitute shallowness and lack of insight...

    5D II is DEAD

    Don't get me wrong! I'll happily receive the camera back and have no qualms what so ever. I don't use the top focus point anyway, so this won't even really be an issue for me. How ever I just wanted to make sure that this wasn't going to affect my AF performance, and whether it was just...

    5D II is DEAD

    They say it's a phenomenon that happens with all cameras (except the previous 2 I owned apparently) and that it's nothing that can be fixed. It's supremely annoying and aggrivating when I'm trying to compose a shot and I get a red blob on someones face instead. Argh. But they 'assure' me that...

    Stab Boy. Not for the Squeamish.

    I love that this has upset 99% of the people that chose to comment.

    5D II is DEAD

    The very top focus point produces a really odd red 'blurring' just above it when activated.

    Camera received today... And is going back today too... ARGH

    5D II is DEAD

    Thanks for the clarification mate, I'm personally of the opinion that a fully functioning and working camera, in my hand, in a reasonable time - is all I require from the manufacturer. Even though I may have lost work, had the expense of using film for over a month, and being taken for a ride...

    5D II is DEAD

    I'd go as far as to say it was to create the 'illusion' of popular demand. Anyway, just another thing I found funny, she explained to me that the 5 parts he's replaced so far hadn't solved it, and he wasn't even sure that the 6th part was going to fix the issue... Which begs the question, who...

    5D II is DEAD

    RIGHT! So I've had a call back from Maureen from Canon Elstree (whom I remember well last week being amazingly helpful despite the crap that's gone on). She's advised me that since it's been brought to her attention again, and due to the fact that this '6th' spare part is due to be "quite a...
