Something for the digital photo buffs

Found an interesting thread about digital photography and cameras.

Another great site to visit.

Re: Something for the digital photo buffs

I like Canon. We use a G2 at the shop for all of our auction photos and I have a 10D. The G2 is a great little camera.

One suggestion to make to these guys might be something along the lines of: it's not the camera that makes the photograph...rather it's the photographer.

In that first pic, I would have moved up closer to remove the fence from the image. He actually has some nice lines there with the trees and if you follow the rule of thirds the horizon is right where it should be (or darn close.)

In the second, I would have tried to zoom in more (not sure if he was maxed out or not.) He needs to move the horizon up a bit and the deer over to the right more, IMO. It's a little too centered I think. Possibly gotten lower to the ground just above the grass top would've been cool.

Thanks for the link. I did like the fact that he was reluctant to use digital enhancement "tricks" to improve his photos. And the response "why didn't you kill them?" was pretty funny.
