Photography Question

Where did Kerby's question go?


Hi - I was reading a great thread where everyone posted their favorite photo from their galleries - what a great idea! But when I tried to comment, it said that there was an error in the thread! Was it too long, or has it gone somewhere else? Do we need to start again?? It sure was fun to look at everyone's favorite pictures!

  By the way, my current favorite is Happy. It really captures my 7-month old son's personality. But I also love Two of a Kind, because my grandmother is so special to me.

  I don't know if you'll see this, but in going through a few galleries...
Kerby, I just love Light. I'm so jealous of that one! Wish I had taken it!
Rachel, I enjoyed your Remember and what you did with it to make the Naval one. I love the lines.
I had more picked, but I guess I'd better write them down next time. My memory fades too fast! Hopefully you'll see this... :)

  Hi Stacy

I tried to my thread to work and I also got an error message.

I am not sure what is wrong with it.

Heather could you please check it out?

It fun to look at other people gallerys and give your opinion on favorites.

  OH YEAH!!! I LOVE THESE KIND OF GAMES!
STACY:TWO OF A KIND-SAME REASON YOU LOVE IT,I CAN SEE IT-I LOOOOVE MY GRANDMA!
BRIAN: THREE STRIKES-LOVE LIGHTING
KERBY:WENDY-I JUST LOVE THAT SHOT-I DOES SOMETHING FOR ME-MAYBE:THE FREEDOM OF CHILDHOOD.
MEL: ITS A TOSS UP-ALMOST 1 AND JENNA- WHAT A FACE.

NOW JUST A THOUGHT- I TRIED THIS ON ANOTHER SITE WHEN I WAS GOING THERE- BUT IT WAS SOO FUN: (I THINK I'LL TRY TO START IT.) MAKE IT YOUR OWN: YOU POST SOMETHING SIMPLE, LIKE A FLOWER, THEN SOMEONE PICKS IT UP AND DOES SOME DOCTORING AND REPOSTS IT-AND POSTS SOMETHING ELSE, TO BE MUNIPULATED.
AND YOU TELL HOW YOU DID IT- YOU LEARN SO MUCH THAT WAY- I JUST CAN'T DO MUCH.LOL,LOL

  Hi Stacy

I got ahold of heather and she checking into why my thread does not work.

I tried to copy and paste mine into yours but it was to long and blocked me from doing it.

It would be nice if we could combine the two into your thread. It is the working one.

Hopefully Heather will check on this for us.

I think my thread broke. So we will use this one.

I tried to copy and paste my thread into this thread but it would not allow me to do it. I think it was to big.

I did write to Heather and she asked me to send the link which I did and after the first email I never heard back from her.

I do not know what is wrong with it.

and thanks cj I like your "beautifull" picture so sweet an natural.

I guess I no really that my stuff is up to a reasonable standard 11 of the pics in my gallery have been published in digital photography mags in the last 18 months or so, but when your trying to improve all the time it gets harder to come up with something different or better than the last one, thanks guys anyway we all need some encouragement sometimes, tc

Kerry L. Walker   Sorry but that is not what I meant and I do know what you mean. I miss my daughter when she goes away to college and that is only 100 miles from me. (I'm getting more emotional in my old age.) I was just joking about the post being loaded on so many times. I am a BIG coffee drinker and I blame the caffeine when I do that.

Kerry L. Walker   Don't have any problem with a thread getting hijaced. Just have a twisted, and sometimes, self-effacing sense of humor. Don't talk to my daughter about growing. She will be 20 next month - all 4'11" of her. (She is the Girl at Catholic Church).

  Antony... I have just looked at your gallery and it is wonderful. It is nice to know as someone becomes more accomplished they still feel the need to improve. Somedays I feel like I could really go places with photography, and most the time I just look around here and think my stuff must look like pre-school!
Ok, back to the subject. My latest favorite would be "Upside Down". It helps that Amber is very relaxed in front of the camera and I really don't have to give her much instruction. Just let her do her thing, and I'm always guaranteed to get a few good pictures :)

Kellie M. Moats   Hi all...
I am new to the website and I have been reading all the questions just to view everyone's Galleries!! You all have wonderful picture's..I love taking picture's of my 18 month daughter and I want to get better at it and maybe pursue a career in the future! So, I have a few photo's out there and was wondering if you could look at them and give me some advice! Be easy..I am so new to this!! haha! I am also interested in taking a class from this website did any of you take a class from here? Thanks for your time!

  Hi Kellie! Thought I'd share what I know, but I'm a beginner too, so hopefully you'll get even more experienced advice later. The more I learn, the more I see that I have to learn, so don't get discouraged! From what I can see, you're on the right track - you tried something different with American Flag, and it's one of my favorites in your gallery - nice colors and composition. And the photo taken in the window, you already acknowledged the fact that the background was cluttered. I love the photo at the beach - the girl is slightly off center, which is great (the rule of thirds) - just watch that horizons are level. The one called Serious is so cute, but it appears that you used flash, which can take away natural light's charm. The one of baby hands is my favorite - creative and sweet and I love it in b&w - the only improvement would be to have it a bit sharper (maybe it's just my screen though!). I have taken any BP classes yet, just read a ton of books and studied lots of photos here, and practiced a lot! My favorite beginners books are How to Photograph Your Baby by Nick Kelsh and The Absolute Beginners Guide to taking Great Photos by Jim Miotke (the founder of BP). Then there are TONS more wonderful ones in great detail - just browse Borders or your library. Good luck - your daughter is so cute, it should be fun to capture her! :)

Kellie M. Moats   Hi Stacy
Thank you for you advice! I will keep it all in mind! The photo marked Serious I also have it in a black and white! I usually take most of her picture's that way! I understand what you mean about the lighting and just today I was taking picutre's of her with my new rebel XT..and was trying to figure out how to turn the flash off! haha! Got to love that Manual!!!
I will defiantly take your advise and try it out....I plan on going to borders to get some books so I have written them down! You said you were new to this too...are you kidding me? Your picture's are great and your children at adorable! I love the Happy picture too!!! Thank you for your time and comments!

  Thanks for the compliments, Kellie! I've only been at this a few months, but I enjoy how when I create a new photo I love it for a bit, then realize how I could have done it better, then try harder the next time, then see new mistakes I made there, etc, etc. I think you could learn and improve forever! I've learned a lot here at BP, and there is always new inspiration! I just got the Rebel XT too and am trying to learn how to get the most out of it - I love it so far! Good luck with yours! :)

Kellie M. Moats   Hi Kerby and Stacy!
Kerby Thank you so much for looking at my Gallery! I love that picture too and think I should rename it now to pondering! That was the perfect word for it! I never labeled my picture's before so I knew I wouldn't be good at it! I wish when I took it I would have realized the stuff outside..but nothing I can do about it now! Just keep practing and remembering to get closer! I love your picture's as well! The little girl is beautiful!!!!

Stacy....Thanks again for your help! I am still hoping to sign up for a class in the summer! Vacation seems to fall right around there and I don't want to be away and trying to take the class! So we will see!!!
I have turned off my flash and I'm getting closer on my subjects..but will keep practicing as well!

Thank you both for your comments!!
Kellie

Kerry L. Walker   Kerby started a thread entitled "What is your personal favorite image?" or something like that where everyone was posting comments on their own favorite image and their favorites from other people's galleries. Kerby's post is still on the site but, for some technical reason, it can't be added to. It got a lot of posts and when it died, Stacy started this one. We have had a lot of new people added to the site so I though they might like to chime in.

I agree, "The view...." is a good one. And Kerry needs to slide a few more pics in.
Kerry, were you the one that had a photo similar to the church but with older cars in a street scene and asked us to guess the year the photo was taken?

Kerry L. Walker   Yea, Bob, that was me. The photo is still up. It is the only B&W in my gallery. It really shows my age, but I did shoot it when I was a kid (back in the Dark Ages). I also added a couple of macro shots, not something I do a lot of. I put up another reflection shot of a bridge, something I really like to shoot. I also put up a high contrast window portrait, another of my favorite type of shots. One that I really like is just a snapshot - a picture of my mother-in-law's dog riding an inner tube.

  Hey Clikty,
I know you are the same- that was my way of saying to "name changer" -we all know it's you -it takes me longer then most- but sooner or later even I catch on and wish you would stop this behavior.
Let me say again- you have a lot to offer- maybe it's time to start a gallery and stick with one name for just a bit. and see if it works again.
the people here seem like very good folks.
anyway enough of this-it's just a thought.

  Hey, thanks Kerry for bringing this thread back up!!!

Ok, My new favorite in my gallery is "I can get both"

My favorites are:

Kerry- "Niagra Falls"

Bob- "Sumatran Tiger", Where do you get the shots of your tigers at? Also great shot of the peacock, I have tried on several occasions at the zoo to get them to open there feathers, but no luck!!!

Rob- "My Daughters Hat"

Debby- "Waiting", thats such a precious shot!!

and Clickty, I would have picked my favorite of yours if you had put any photos in your gallery, And the way I see it is, you should have your pic. in your gallery because you like them, so it shouldnt matter what other people think or say. And if someone did make comments about you in the photos, then just dont put any pictures of yourself in there, put your others in there instead.

ANyways, those are my favs. you all have great gallerys!!!

  OK, Laura is going to be awhile-I'm trying to update and WOW it's hard-
poor thing she has a lot of posts-but some awsome work to look at:
ROB: "A view from here" still would love a copy for my office-but I would end up living in it and get nothing done.lol."My daughters hat" is really a beauty to.
Laura:"Larger then life" is really neat and I really like "sadness over Ice Cream" too.
Collette:Oh look what I can do" and "Mother and Son" these are really good and I still can NOT believe he was in a bad mood, he is sooo cute.-I just can't wait to see more of him and from you!
Troy: " A beautiful day" and "My very own barn" I need these in my office too.You and Rob capture real peace in your images-sometimes I wish I were in so many other places besides So.Cal.
(recent trip through CO.was really beautiful and the first time I had seen CO.)
Bob: your new ones are great."Needle"WOW! and ":-)Rose" is a real beauty,but those tigers and ships are amazing-I love this gallery.
oh,I hope I'm caught up! if I missed anyone please forgive me ,

Collette..Tigers and peacocks are at the Pt Defiance Zoo/Aquarium in Tacoma WA....all it takes for the birds is to sit on the ground infront of them and they start posing..:-)

  Debby, I think I like Bubble Bath the best, but this is really hard as you have some great photos.

Ric-I love action shots, but I am going with Picture Perfect.

Laura - love your photos but I think I like simple pleasures the best. I just really like candid shots.

You ALL have GREAT photos, you should be proud!!!

Tory K. Galvan   Trying to catch up as well :)
Anita - I absolutely LOVE "Beat the Rain" would love to have it on my wall :) and I'm not just sayin' that
Laura - It's a tie for me between soloist and simple pleasures. The comp and color on soloist is just great and simple pleasures is just too cute:)
Ric - I think I may have to agree with you on "Buzz Off". Love the colors

I agree with Anita, YOU ALL HAVE GREAT PHOTOS!!!!

This would be my son's fiance. I finally talked her into BP. She's done film for years and FINALLY went digital. Would anyone mind peeking and sending her a comment if you feel the urge....?...:-)

  Hi,

I'm the kind of guy that reads the Forum, New Questions everyday but never respond to anything, this being my first respond to a question is nice. Debby I see you respond to alot of questions and you gallery is amazing to many to choose one. Tory I like a Beautiful Day in your gallery. Anita you had a couple I liked but to me Dust On A Farm is the one I like the best. But I new at this so what do I know. I have been taking picture serious of a year and really love it. Thanks again everyone of looking at me gallery. Can't wait til my first picture wins a first or second place award. Like Debby Ha!! Ha!!

Ric

  Thanks Laura,

I kind of agree with the judges on The Littiest Engineer picture, but I also like Blue Curiosity I'm not sure why but some thing keep me looking at the picture. Maybe because the little girl looks so sweet, maybe the lighting not sure, there's my 2 cents.

  Yeah you definately have to check this thread every day, or you can get way behind, and it could take you a while (like Laura said) to catch up!!!

ok,

Tory- "A perfect World"

Anita- "Dusk on the farm"

Ric- "small stream" and "flower phonograph", you have a really great gallery!!

I think that gets me all caught up!!

And Bob, you must just have a nack for getting the birds to open there feathers, cause I have tried, but my problem could be that they usually run away from me whenever I see them!!!! I must look like a preditor or something!!!=) Thanks for the tip though, mabye if Im lower to the ground I will look less threatening!!! But I really loved your tiger shots, that must be a great zoo to be able to get as close and without anything obstructing your view!!

And Debby, I will try and see if I get some more pictures of the shoot in my gallery for you to see, Im having trouble trying to figure out how to get them to the size they need to be, since they were scenned onto a cd for me!!!

Thanks everyone for your comments on my gallery!!

  Hi Collette,

I like Look At What I Got the best. Its a little out of focus, but I still like it. I'm sure every thing was happening so fast it was hard to get set up and ready. Very cute little boy.

  Thanks Collette, I think I like your Autum Reflections the best. Just FYI, Flower Phonograph was mine not Rics. But I will let Ric borrow it. No biggy.

Thanks for all nice things you all have to say. I have to say, I am glad I am not a judge.......

  Sorry Anita, I must have written the name of the photo on the wrong line while I was making nots of peoples gallerys!! =( Thats a great shot though, and a great gallery!!

Thanks Ric, and yes it was very hard to keep him in focus, he was crabby and everywere, didnt want to sit still for a minute, I just had to shoot as fast a could when I saw an opportunity!!
