    I love fresh air.

    I must say the quality of the photographs in this thread is really picking up. Some very good shots here, and quite a few with a lot of potential.

    Here are some shots taken the other day:








    All of them are taken with the Nikkor 24mm f/2.8 AF-D, which I recently acquired

    What do you think?

    I haven't shot much film, but what happened to picture 1? Is it a focus thing, or did someone manhandle your roll?
    Yeah, the Peruvian photo lab didn't know how to treat a negative properly. I've got a few shots which are almost beyond repair (I might post one a bit later on and see what you guys can do with the image).

    Pick, what is it you actually do? You seem to go on quite a lot of adventures and mini expeditions, is it just self funded travel? Is it a university thing, or some sort of charity organisation?

    I'm just curious, love your work as always.
    Cheers mate.
    I guess it's from a few different things.
    I study Wildlife Conservation at Uni. So that in itself is a fairly global topic. It's a goal-based discipline which usually requires travel to places which are in need of help. So I'm often on trips around the country (just recently went to Jersey) and further afield.
    The Peru expedition was a trip organised by my department to better our skills in data collection/field work (with the wider aim of using the info to help monitor the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve in Peru).

    I was studying understory birds (the birds that fly in the lower canopy of any type of forest); catching them in mist-nets, tagging them, measuring, weighing etc.
    Using this data you can estimate population numbers, presence etc.
    I'm writing up my results in my dissertation which is due in two months.

    My parents are both Australian (I currently live in Kent, England), but I've lived on and off in both countries, so that would explain my photos coming from both hemispheres.
    And my fairly recent trips to Morocco and Berlin were just short trips away with my girlfriend.

    And lord no, am I never going to get sucked into that 'charity' work which offers travel.
    They make a buck from naive 'gap-year' students who don't end up actually making too much difference for their chosen organisation. There are, of course, exceptions to the rule (I've heard Coral Cay Conservation does a pretty good job) - but the more I study, the more I realise how they just slot into an 'experience' holiday where people kid themselves into thinking they're doing some good because it's under the visor of 'volunteering' when in fact you're paying often hundreds of thousands of pounds for the experience.

    It's bloody annoying though. I don't want to live in an impoverished world and I feel obliged to do something about it.
    When I tell people I'm studying Wildlife Conservation they always respond with "Oh, that's interesting!" or "That's different!", but then I try and explain it's because I care, not because it's some quirky or different subject.

    I actually give a shit about the planet that I live on.

    I almost decided to study photography at Uni. But I'm glad I didn't. I've got real-world, current, practical and inter-disciplinary knowledge tucked away in my brain about everything from biology and ecology to politics and law.
    I think I've progressed enough as a photographer in my time at Uni. Even if I'm lacking on a few of the minor technical details (which I aim to spend a bit of time after my studies focusing on myself), I feel confident enough with a camera to achieve most things I'm interested in photographically.

    I just really hope that one day, I'll be able to link these two things. I want to see the world (in a selfish way before we bloody fuck it all up and it changes beyond all recognition) and make some sort of change or difference and document with a camera as I go - Once I figure out my own way of doing it.

    Hey guys, I just enrolled into a photography study for atleast half a year. Our first assignment is to choose a photographer whose work you appreciate, pick one photo from them to recreate and then try to shoot a series of photos in the same style as them.

    I'm probably going to pick one(or more) of you guys

    The lens distortion makes the building look like it's out of alice in wonderland or something, I like it! I liek the composition, although it;s a shame the guy on the left is blinking.

    I think you would benefit greatly from a polarising filter, it blocks out certain wave lengths of light, so it makes sky's bluer and gives clouds more definition, they can also get rid of reflections on shiny objects, even water reflections! I love polarisers.

    It would help towards white-out in the sky, but you could combat that by lowering either the ISO, boosting the F-stop number, or decreasing the ISO.

    HEre's a link which will explain it a bit better: http://www.digital-photography-schoo...al-photography

    Its one of the only shots that I still like years after I took it.

    I think I have a mental dissorder in which I hate all my old photography and concentrate on what Im working on now.

    I agree with latin, first and 2nd to last are the best shots. a lot of them look similar, try going a bit lower on the angle next time because skating looks really cool from that perspective. if not that angle, just try out some different things, because while none of them are bad, they are all pretty similar.
