My Kensington outing with Dave...

Discussion in 'Birds' started by sommer, Aug 22, 2005.

  1. Dave beat me to it...he posted all the best shots of the day! But I'm going to post mine anyway :smile: Dave introduced my daughter, Melissa, and me to a fabulous part of a park just minutes from my house, that I never even knew existed! Now that I know it's there, I'll be back plenty! Here are some of the shots Melissa and I took today (mine are with the D70, 70-300mmG lens; Melissa's are with the Kodak CX7430). I've just started shooting in RAW, and I'm just beginning to get to know my way around PS CS2, so please bear with me!! I've been staring at the computer screen so long my eyeballs are about to fall out of my head! The day was quite overcast, and my 70-300G lens is a light hog, so not the best of circumstances. Still, I think these came out ok.

    Melissa and I really enjoyed hanging out with Dave and learning from him. He's got me thinking about what it is that I want do with my pictures, and I desperately needed to do that, as I try to make the transition from family snapshot maven to something more (not sure what yet...just something more!) And I tried not to drool too much on Dave's Tokina 12-24 lens!! It was a great day.

    Here's a picture of Dave that Melissa took (and I'm only posting it under "animals" because I'm too lazy to start another thread elsewhere, LOL!)

    Those are nice images, Sommer and Melissa,

    I was hoping to drive in the day and shoot with you all but timing was not good. I did my best to clear my schedule, but to no avail. :mad: I looks as though the day of shooting was very nice. :wink:

    Dave,

    Thanks so much for the invite. Kind of a long trip for a weekend, but I'm sure it would be worth it, for the photography, company, and the lunch. :wink:

    Cool shots Sommer. Love the one your daughter took of Dave!
     
  9. I enjoyed the pictures, Sommer. The "G" lens did you well for an overcact day.

    Melissa, your turtle shot is great.
