    Does anybody feel the way I do???????

    Sorry to paraphrase Peter Frampton:

    A little about my story, had a box camera, and loved that you could take multiple images, I went to the Isle of Mann with a Zenit E in 1989. Got excited and bought an F601 and a Sony TR2000E to play with, I had fun with them in the UK in 94. all that stolen in 1998. Since then, phone camera, so to test the waters I am now the very proud owner of a D7000 and some lenses.

    So to the point, I feel the 'camera' is more of a projector than a recorder, in that I can express myself in ways that are not easily understood.

    I see an emotion in the still image, things the eye did not see, but captured none the less, in that frame in time.

    I hope to have some fun here, and would welcome any advice..

    Peace
    Richard

    I view it as both a projector and a recorder.

    I find myself often quoting Jerry Garcia and zy Osborne. Can never go wrong with Frampton IMHO. I agree that you can capture a slice of time that illicits a certain emotion (photos of Buddhist monks self immolating for example).

    I also agree that you can also use personal creativity to filter a photo through your minds eye to capture something that is not easily seen, or could not be seen otherwise (light painting, Infra Red, high speed shutter, and HDR techniques for example). Just a simple conversion from color to B&W can be enough to radically change the mood of a photo.

    So, short answer, Yes, I would agree with the veracity both statements.

    I also have a D7000 and I love, love, love this camera. It is two months old to me, so, still learning the features. Hope to see some of your work in the near future.

    Cheers

    I like all of these, some are abstract, some not so. I like the blurred view, and also the crisp.
    Although I am new here, I want to share my perspective of my world, I need glasses.....

    You have a job to do Rick, as far as the recorder. Do you let people see the projection? How does it work if someone else is picking up the tab? They want to see what they want, but surely you tweak it to your view a bit. And no doubt the images are better than they expected....... Steve mentioned 'the minds eye'..
    In my experience, people are surprised that so many things happened around and with them that they did not know..

    Thanks for your perspective.
    Cheers

    Does anybody remember irony?


    Not taking the piss, just having fun. I know the poets would be upset if I compared photos. (are they photos?) or NEF or RAW or JPEG, to their body of work, neither real or unreal, the end justifies the means, and by the by just how much dodging was done in the darkroom?

    Unfortunately, the very best digital sensor made will not capture the detail or colors that the human eye can see. This is why post production is necessary. All thatís left of the past after it is gone is a photo or video, which provide sweet memories.

    having developed more film than anyone else on this forum probably (I managed and owned photo labs) I think you can go a lot farther with Digital than you could ever go with film. Post processing when learned properly can give you what you see in your mind when you took the photo.
