Alright, from that thread about interests (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showthread.php?t=64957), quite a few of you folks seemed to be interested in photography.

Good :D So am I.

What kind of camera have you got, and show us some of your work please!

I've got an Olympus C8080 WZ, f2.4-8.0 lens equivalent of 28-140mm on 35mm, macro from 5 cm, 8MP, 1GB storage... Ehhrr anything else you want to know about it?

Some pictures I have shot are...

Wonderful pictures. :tmb:

I don't even own a camera. :(

Punaxe
24-05-06, 19:22
Olympus I suppose :p Digital?

I just noticed my pictures don't have the Exif data either... Probably because they're quite old already and I didn't use to keep them before.
When the photo is taken on a digital camera, the camera attaches information to the image such as what camera was used to make it, what shutter speed and whatever else is appropriate. That's stored in the Exif (Exchangeable image file format) data.

I have to resize photos so there (probably) there is no EXIF it's Olympus Mju 800

Resizing usually leaves the Exif intact, it's resaving that tends to delete it.

Nice pics! :D Was that a wild lion? :eek:

No, I'm wondering what camera you have :p

Uapa

Yup :D it was of course(that's the way i should write it?) on safari but it was 3 meters in front of me :) and there was no fence beetwean me and lion. :wink:

Punaxe
24-05-06, 19:33

South Africa 300km from Cape Town in the north east direction.

I have hundreds upon hundreds, so I will just show you the one I use as my desktop wallpaper. Its all blury because the camera can't capture fast movement without a flash.

I used a 90-300mm USM lens. A decent lens but it was the first lens I bought for my film SLR.

I'm a different photographer altogether, involved in the entertainment industry,focusing mainly on the music scene. Here are a few examples:

And I'm also responsible for the pic that is my avatar :D

Punaxe
25-05-06, 10:29
Ah, I usually just shoot anything I see that could look nice on a picture :D And I don't think my camera would be able to shoot good pictures of concerts... Only goes to ISO400.

Is that your job, L.C ? They're good pics :tmb:

Thank you Punaxe! It's not my day job, but I do keep busy with it, and even earn a bit of money sometimes. I'm not very good at landscapes or still life that's why I'm so very impressed with yours and the others' work, but give me a musician and a camera and I'm well away :p

Kodak CX7430 4MP, Don't you just hate Flash?, my camera has it on as default, wish there was a way to turn permenantly turn it off, anyone got a camera that can do this, as in when you disable the flash and switch the camera off the on it's still disabled...

Punaxe
25-05-06, 19:26
Hmm mine has a pop-up flash... If you just don't pop it up, it doesn't flash :p
And, it has a "reset all" option so that when you turn the camera off, goes back to the factory's defaults. Maybe you have something like that? If so, turn it off.
I also have an external flash, which is useful for my work but I don't use it very much for hobby photography.

Punaxe can i ask you a question?

Are you a proffesional photographer? cause you're pictures look very proffesional.. and that woman coming down the stairs is naked.. that makes you wonder: is she a model that you hired.. or is/was she your girlfriend that you took a picture of? (if you don't mind me asking)

Punaxe
25-05-06, 22:25
Hehe :D That was my girlfriend at the time... Why hire a model when you can just ask friends? :p

And well, I'm not a professional, just a hobbyist. Though I do make money with my camera... But not really for photographical value of the outcome.

But, thanks for the compliment :jmp:
