Re: My photography work
Thanks for the feedback guys! Let's answer questions individually:
pawel, I'm using crappy gear for now. It's just an old Canon Powershot A85. Some older shots (the ones I took back in 1995) were taken using a Nikon N50 SLR and the film negative was scanned at 300 dpi resolution. And, yes, most pictures are just technical. I've just started studying photography this year (until then, it was just an ordinary spare-time activity), so I'm still learning the basics about taking good artistic photos.
shredmaster, as I've mentioned above, I'm currently using a very simple handcam for my shots. The flash is awful and I have to improvise in most shots. The shadowing thing was made on purpose because the flash light distorts the original colors. So, I improvise a small piece of white paper just below the flash lamp (a little angled up) to make the flash light more diffuse and not hit the object directly. This technique works great indoors and you can get some very satisfactory results in open areas.
vette6600, thanks! That one was achieved after 184 unsuccessful shots! It's very hard to make this kind of photo using a compact camera.
Glen, yes it does if the owner has a Pro Account (my case). But for now, I'm just allowing people who have a flick account and are in my contact list to download them in full size (I upload them in 1600x1200 resolution). But, if any of you want a specific picture in a higher resolution (I have plenty of them at 2272x1704 resolution), just pm me.
