Help with Photography.

jbish130July 26, 2007

Hi, I've been shooting photographs with 35mm cameras for just about 30 years now.

I'm not working now since my heart attack, so I have time to help anyone who is interested in improving their photography.

All my work is with film, but the same concepts apply regardless of medium.

Jeff,

We're not worthy, we're not worthy. That's a very nice waterfall photo.

I'd have to replace my camera first, then help would be appreciated.

Thanks for the nice comments on the waterfall. That would be one of my best photographs. I've shot thousands of others that aren't nearly as pretty.

Thus, all are worthy. Also, I personally think equipment is overrated.

A good photograph is all about good composition. My wife struggles with the controls on the camera. She doesn't understand them, so she will ask me to set them for her.

This can be frustrating for me, as she consistently brings home the best photograph from our vacations without actually knowing how to use the camera.

"A little Humble Pie a la mode, perhaps?"

Compostition comes natural to her, whereas I have to think the process through.

I've lots of time on my hands, so my offer still stands. I would be happy to help, so feel free to contact me if you like.

would you please set my camera for me too?

i haven't been to this photo forum in a lonnnng time, decided to rejoin just today, and then i see this incredibly generous offer...could use all the advice i can get

i've a nikon d70, and upgrade from the tank (sony cd1000)

i can never remember the who.what.where.when of shutter & aperture...also, i don't get shutter or aperture...i've considered tattooing the info on my arm, see if that helps

neither do i understand what iso has to do with it all

so i just take billions of pics while playin' with manual, AP, SP (and whatever the P stands for, i use that one too) and hope i get at least one that's in focus and not over or under exposed

btw, i LOVE jen's barn, winter farm & jen's boats and especially the b/w's

Here is a link that might be useful: my photos :o)
