Hi, I didn't Introduce myself before, I am sorry. Well, I am from Venezuela and living in Norway, I like to take photos some time to time when I have free time, I work, I also play music and have a family and kids, so I don't know when I have free time :-). I usually do it while I am with my bicycle, so is normal that my bicycle is in my photos :-), but I don't have preferences, if I find something that I Like, I just shoot. Regards everybody.

Hello There Light Box Community!

My name is Ryan, I'm from NYC I love bicycles, elephants, people & photography (not necessarily in that order)! I shoot mostly street photography, & also portraiture. I love shooting people, I love their candid expressions, I love to tell stories with my pictures, more so than making them exclusively look pretty. I do like a bit of grit in my image, NYC is pretty gritty, I like that to come thru.

I know it's not about the gear, but I love Fuji! I have an X-T1 with a few lenses, & an X70 as my never leave home without it sidekick. I love the layout & of their cameras which allows me to almost never have to look at in menu to shoot my scene.

This particular image was shot on my X70 a few mornings ago near Bryant Park. I absolutely welcome pluses, comments, shares , getting circled & most of all constructive criticism (I'm not afraid to be challenged, that's where growth happens). I hope you enjoy my images as much as I enjoyed making them.

Best,

R

Okay, today I launched my photography site. Not really sure when I can call myself a "professional" - was I not yesterday but today I am because I have a website? Do I need my first sale? Do I need to generate enough revenue to ditch my dayjob?

I come to this community looking for critique and advise. What do you guys do to drive traffic? How do you try to stand out? What sells, and what doesn't?

Here's the URL, if you'd like to take a look...

Hi, I'm Sherry.  I'm a gardener/garden designer in Charlotte NC and usually have my camera with me at work just in case.  I make art in gardens and like to take photos and play with them in Lightroom and Photoshop to make art for my walls.  I'm new at it so thought it would be fun to check out others photos and critique in Light Box and get some critique on mine as well.   First, just wanted to introduce myself.    Cheers.

I probably should have done a better introduction from when I started posting here and I’m doing it now because I think it will add some context to my comments. 

I studied graphic design and some photography in school and worked as a graphic designer and web designer since the mid-90s primarily doing page layout and illustration so I know my way around photoshop, and have done some color correction but not as a retoucher. This summer I moved to Manila because my wife got an opportunity that was too good to turn down and I suddenly have a lot of time on my hands. I also followed her to Africa for a couple of years so that’s why I have so many images from there. 

I’ve taken the opportunity to expand my interest in photography and retouching with an eye toward eventually getting some work as a high end retoucher. I think I can use the time difference as advantage because I will be able to work while others sleep. 

I find this forum very helpful in getting criticism and possibly more in giving criticism because it helps me train my eyes. I hope everyone finds my comments helpful. This is a very subjective endeavor and it’s difficult to comment without context and sometimes it may come off as arrogant and may not even be applicable for any given photo, or photographer. If it’s too technical it’s not helpful and if it’s too rudimentary it’s insulting.

Thanks again for all your time, and comments.

-Will

The path to my photography

A long time I was much more into musics (playing) than photography. I just used a point-and-shoot (Canon Ixus 50) mostly in vacation for years until I got dissatisfied with the limited amount of manual control and the limited optics and sensor capabilities it had when I thought more about the difference of what pictures I wanted to take to what pictures I was able to take and I found the limitation was in my gear (ok, that is easy with that camera, I agree :) ). After some research I ended up buying a Canon 60D and some lenses (including my 100mm Macro which is still one of my favorite lenses delivering me some of the best of my pictures). That is now nearly four years ago and was a remarkable step which triggered turning my occasional shooting into a serious hobby. After two years of learning and trying in the DSLR world I ended up going full-frame by buying my now most used camera the Canon 5D III where I luckily could reuse most of my lenses bought so far.
The gear is heavy and I realize I do not always have it with me, which is often a pity. Looking for a solution there I just found the Photokina announcement of the Fuji x100T and this camera is now on top of my buying list, to finally have something good always with me and maybe also explore some more street photography in future.

I really enjoy nice pictures, whether shot by my own or looking at other's work.

Hi! A friend of mine recommended you all to me and so I thought I'd see what you all were about.
I am into photography and interested in starting up a business.
I love to look at other people's work, take criticism well (because that's how you learn, right!?!) And focus on getting the "right" picture.

Sascha Picchiantano

Introduce Yourself  - 
 
Hi, I'm Sascha. Still learning my ways in photography and would consider myself an occasional shooter. Switched from heavy Nikon DSLR gear to a lightweight mirrorless system about a year ago and couldn't be happier with it. Was forced to switch from Apple Aperture to Lightroom and been struggling with editing ever since. Last but not least, I am trying to get away from Facebook so I am looking at alternatives like Google Plus. Been a G+ user since day 1, but kind of abandoned it long before they introduced the new communities/collections paradigm. Learning my way back in :) That said, this looks like exactly the kind of community I was looking for.

I'm a Bob. Relatively new into photography and am spending a lot of time reading and looking to learn from others. I'm still using kit lenses on my Canon T3, except for my 50mm that is. Haven't specialized in any area, but especially like some macro and minimalist works. This looks like a great Community!
