So for a while I’ve had photos scattered in a few different places, I’ve decided to consolidate everything onto flickr (at least for the time being). I don’t love flickr’s presentation but I can’t argue with their usability. There are just more tools out there and flikr is the 500lb gorilla as far as community and sharing sites.
The only photos that will be public are the ‘style’ type photos. All the personal stuff will be Friend/Family only as appropriate. I’m sure a time will come when I may want to be able to see pictures of my kids but for right now I’m going to protect their privacy. Joining flickr is free and I recommend anyone interested in joining and adding me as a contact. I’ll return the favor and you can see all the cuteness/etc to your hearts content.
The photostream will pull in on the sidebar and can be found directly at http://flickr.com/photos/stickm
So I finally made my decision on a camera. I settled on the Canon EOS T1i (500D). So far I love it! I went to the “Rose Garden” down by NCSU and shot a little bit this afternoon after having to work all day (on a Saturday). This little guy came out pretty good, though upon reflection I should have stopped a little higher for a little more DoF. Live and learn I guess.
I had half-heartedly thought about submitting one of these to an online photo contest but ultimately I decided that I need a bit more experience before I take that step. That’s a post for another day, however.
