Guh, Norwegian kids now-a-days, huh? Fucking spray painting the entire Norwegian capital. It's such a ugly city now... 
   
Sarcasm, anyone??

 Murder Bird
Was really glad I didn't cock up the origami so I just had to take a shot of it.
 

 
 Summer, as it should be

 Some of my first underwater photography, focus is wrong damn!

 Another early attempt, need a proper strobe to improve these shots
 
First 2 shots were taken with a Nikon D5000, the last two were taken with a simple Canon point&shoot in a 40m rated housing.

@DOUBLESHOCK: I love that last picture of yours with the two dogs, really excellent composition.

This thread might lead me to buying a camera today. Photography is something I have always wanted to start, but have never gotten around too. I really need a new hobby, and I might just splurge today.

Thanks man. Your PS3/Heavy Rain shot is awesome. The focus and sharpness is perfect. Also, I hope there is Heineken in your glass, wouldn't soil it with anything else :)

@gunslingerNZ:  Yeah I felt the same way about the origami when I did it during the 15m install. THIS IS A-MAZING!

Seeing these makes me want to get into proper photography. I love taking photographs, but due to the fact I don't regularly carry a camera around with me, and money is difficult to come by, this seems to be one of those things I just won't be able to do. I might actually start a thread for people to upload Forza images or something, because that's about the only place I can take pictures, seeing as it's built into the game. @Devil240Z said:

@Devil240
Tell me... how large is this image? If it's bigger than 1280x800 or just that size, please share a full size link with me. I need to get that picture as a background!

 Holy crap dude...I just had a LONG reply typed out and then the page ate my post when I tried to add an image. Here's the condensed version: Look for a used Nikon D40 with the kit 18-55mm VR lens, or a Nikon D40 body and buy a lens separately. It may run you a little more than $220...but just wait for the right deal on Craigslist or something. At $220 you're looking at point and shoots...don't waste your time. Go DSLR. The D40 may only be 6 megapixels, but don't let that fool you, it's a beast and capable of some impressive pictures. Here are some examples at the Flickr D40 group dedicated to pictures taken with the very common kit 18-55mm lens that it usually comes with.
 
I had a lot more in the post but I've just lost all motivation to retype it all. Here's a random picture I took with my Nikon D60 and the same 18-55mm lens...the D40 and D60 are essentially the same camera, just with a different image sensor (D60 is 10.2mp). Don't worry about megapixel count - 6.1 is plenty unless you plan on printing very large images, like larger than 11x17...and let's face it, most of us never will. Just trust me and go DSLR for the flexibility and upgradeability down the road. You can start with a $250-$300 used Nikon D40 kit with a lens, then add more stuff like a prime or telephoto lens later on if you want to. Or, if you find yourself not being as into photography as you thought you were, sell the thing on Craigslist for what you paid or more.
 
For fun, here's a shot I took with my D60 and kit 18-55mm lens...I'm a VERY amateur photographer. Every image I've shared in this thread has been taken with my D60 and either the 18-55mm lens, the 55-200mm lens I have, or the new 50mm prime I just got. That's the other thing about DSLR's vs point and shoots....response time. I can turn on my Nikon and take a picture in less than a second, and it shoots at 4 frames per second. You'll never get the kind of flexibility, responsiveness, and quality from ANY point and shoot or superzoom camera than you will from a DSLR. Trust me dude.
 
This was shot in full auto mode, it was an "Oh shit I need to turn the camera on and get a picture of this immediately because it's so damn adorable" type of moment. No post processing, took it in an instant, and I suck at photography. I think it turned out pretty good. The second one is an image I've shared before, but I just wanted to give you an idea of what kind of versatility a "real" camera gives you. Same lens, same camera, same photographer, only with a $20 polarizing filter screwed on to the business end and a little post processing in Adobe Lightroom. Taking pictures is only half of the fun for nerds like me - I spend more time in Lightroom and Photoshop working with the "keepers" than I do actually taking pictures. It should probably be the other way around, but this is a hobby for me and I love it, even if I'm not great at it.  
 
(Also keep in mind when viewing pics on GB...they are pretty heavily compressed and lose a little quality. You can go into my image gallery and click to see the full resolution ones if you want to see the difference)
 
Good luck and have fun with it, it's an awesome hobby and could turn into a rewarding career if you're talented.
 

 

Do NOT pet the sheep.

 A sign from a beach on Kaua'i.  The full-size pic looks better

 Turtle laying on the beach on Kaua'i.  Color's a bit washed out, but I like his expression.

 Yarn hanging at a market outside of Cusco, Peru.  Again, the color's a bit washed out.  The full-size looks better. (Maybe it's because I have use GB's lite background).


 Messing around with a long exposure and twisting the camera.  These are the lights of Cusco, Peru.
  I wouldn't call myself even an amateur photographer.  I don't really have the eye.  The first three pics are with a Nikon D40.  The last one was my wife's point and shoot.

Here's a few of my better stuff. I use a D90 with an 18-105mm lens (though all my photos are taken below 30mm), and have yet to use a strobe. Hot-lights are my friend. :D
More here~

Crappy iPhone pic of the TOOL concert last night at the Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. I did sneak in a little Canon digital elph point and shoot, but it was so bad in low light it was useless.

@MB: That's actually pretty cute. Did you just use room lighting for that or more?
#200 Edited by MB (11885 posts) -
@ghostNPC: Sorry for the late reply - but that was a combination of the room's incandescent & fluorescent lighting at f/1.8. In an effort to revive the thread, here's something recent. 
 
Tapas bar...blood sausage and sangria from this weekend. Shot with a Canon 40D using a 24-70 f/2.8 at 35mm, aperture priority.
