I recently did a short photography course.  12 hours over six weeks (one evening a week).  I have, as a result, packed most of my cameras away acknowledging my weaknesses.  I will still take some photos of family and in a project to document graves in an historic cemetery, but will not consider myself to be a photographer any longer.  Thinking of the works of St Ansell Adams has convinced me of that.

 

Having said that, a member of the tanknet facebook page has pointed me to these websites, that are worth reading.

Hi. Please satisfy my narcissism by checking out my Flickr page :lol:

:D :D :D

 

Very nice work.

I finally bought a cheapy DSLR a couple of years ago and have been getting back into the groove of still shooting. I've been a television photojournalist for more than 31 years, but still shooting was my first love.

I mentioned it in the Good Old Fashioned Tank Porn thread, but I recently hooked up the photo/negative scanner that my wife got me for Fathers Day a couple of years ago. During my Christmas vacation I scanned 500-something negatives and have been repairing and editing them as I have time. Some were in pretty bad shape considering that they've been in negative sleeves for nearly thirty years.

 

All the negatives are color, but I've converted a few to grayscale.

All photos made with a Pentax MX Super using Kodak Gold100 film.

shootER5: Thanks! Very nice tank photos you got there. M60 is one of my favourite tanks. :wub:

 

DougRichards: Those links are awesome. My weakness is composing. I really should be less rigid of mind when taking photos. Those links will be important if I want to improve my photography. :)

Thank you.

I disagree with you, though. Your composition is very solid. Nothing wrong with it at all, from my point of view.
