Giving stuff away for free can be a very good way of making money. I have written about that before, and the current economic state of the world makes this even more true.
Motion pictures have severely influenced my photography. Pictures in movies are generally very well thought through and well executed. Here's a list of my ten favorites.
Trying to make money photography is a very long shot. The market is so saturated with quality pictures at extremely low prices that getting a foothold is close to impossible.
The dust problem is one of my main "exaggerated problems" with DSLR's. Judging from the online debates, many camera owners do nothing but shoot white walls at f22 in the pursuit of dust.
...very small, that is.
No, it's not like I shoot film. I did go 100% digital the moment I acquired my first DSLR. But my photographic upbringing was in film, and that still marks my way of thinking and shooting.
I have recently started using my D200 and the SB-800 flash without cable like I used to do with my Minolta 7D and the HS5600. It's great!
I am sure I will keep on taking great pictures with my D200 in spite of Nikon's recent announcement of a D300 and a D3.
It is not easy! They are tough cameras these PowerShots. I have tried with freshwater, saltwater and even coffee.
Oh, yes! These huge 17-55mm and 70-200mm f2.8 lenses do feel great in the hands, and the do take some awful nice pictures
