    Default My Photography

    Hey all,

    Some know me, some dont, I have been kind of a ghost, But have realized that this site is compatible with Tapatalk so I can be more active. Anyways I have been doing photography for a while now but just recently getting really really into it, and just wanted to share with you guys and see what you guys think. I do it all, Cars, landscapes, buildings, ect. Really want to get into doing portraits and such. But Click uhere to check out my blog and my pictures and drop a like on fb if you desire!. Tell me what ya think! I am using a Nikon D40 with a Sigma 18-200 lens for most of the shots.

    Heres a few randoms.

    I think all of them are great quality but like Alec said, pretty boring. Dont get me wrong, beautiful shots and definitely looks like you know where your going with these projects. Keep us updated on more shots bro.

    See the thing is, if you were to stick a nice car in front of these scenes with some sick lighting, you would have a nice car picture. I want to see you make a mini van look good using the first pic as a background.

    I thought they look pretty clean. I have a sigma 300mm and they don't look nearly this vibrant-- even with post. How much did that lens set you back? I've been thinking of getting an all purpose lens like that.

    I got the lens for 398 shipped on amazon. Its half the price of the Nikon 18-200 and the quality is just as good. I love it , I would consider it!

    Yeah, 3rd party lenses are wayyyy cheaper. I don't know too much about sigma, but, the 300 I got was only $20 bucks so it wasn't really a hard decision haha. I dunno it I should go with an old manual lens or fork out the extra cash for an up to date one with AF.

    nice deal on the lens, honestly I wasn't too sure about 3rd party lenses either but I did my research before I purchased this, read many reviews, and asked on the photography forum im on. Sigma is very respected and has many many lenses that pros even use. If I were you I would get it, its a great lens and it has a wide angle capabilities too, 72mm filter!

    Damn that sounds awesome. I think the biggest lens filter ring I have is only a 57mm. Sounds hawt. The "widest" lens I have is just the kit lens but it doesn't quite grab as much or distort space as much as I want it to.

    Yeah kit lenses are weak. Mine is 52mm,Ha ha. But they do the trick sometimes, I've taken some awesome pictures with my kit lens before I had my sigma. I don't even use it anymore.

    What kind of camera you using?

    A Pentax k-x. If I get the badass job I applied for i might move up to the k-7. The k-5 is too pro for me.
