Serious Amateur Photographers

~ 100 buzzes
Practically everyone carries a camera around with them these days. This hive is for those who go a step farther. We buy gear and learn as we go, but ultimately find the joy of creating photos the ultimate reward. Sometimes, we may even get paid for it, but a great benefit is to find other like-minded individuals.

Keep your posts to 1 a day, and try to provide feedback to the others, with the exception of 'nice shot', 'nice photo', etc. Be constructive. Share what you like about the photo.

You can also post your link to Flickr, 500px or other photo sharing site.

Enjoy.

    Great advice for the pocket photographers Katya. For certain shots, the camera on my phone is actually better than my big rig. About half of the recent photos on my Flickr stream are from my phone.

    Art in the Instrument: (My latest photo)

    This is a shot of my Ignition Inferno guitar. It's the only electric in my collection and was hand crafted in Burlington, Ontario, not far from where I live.

    It has a wonderful mellow tone, a neck that fits my fingers and is a delight to look at.

    I bought it at a silent auction when it was whispering my name as I walked by. You have to be a guitar player to understand this.

    Just a duck on a rock in golden hour light.

    I love to take the camera along when my wife and I go for a walk during 'Golden Hour'... that time just before the sun sets when all the colours come alive.

    This little mallard was perched on a rock along the Bronte Marina breakwater path. Bronte is one of the great areas of the town of Oakville, Ontario.

    We took our grand kids to a small private zoo this weekend. The animals are well cared for, and like to sit near the edge of the enclosures. There are two fences, but the kids can get within 6ft (2 metres) of the animals. Being this close to the animals made a huge impression on my grand kids. The animals all had plenty of room to go hide from the visitors, but most chose to sit and interact with the hairless apes walking past.

    Of course I took my camera along...

    #11 Thanks @Sharon Fulgenzi. The concept of zoos tends to polarize people. I'm a big supporter of zoos that are supporting conservation and awareness initiatives rather than being a collection of poorly kept creatures purely for human enjoyment. The most 'wildlife' most kids ever experience are the squirrels in the yard, and never grow up appreciating the rich heritage and responsibility we have to protect our world. You are right about this baboon being curious. There were plenty of places to hide, but he came over and parked himself by the fence to get a better view of us.

    #10 Thanks @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD for your comments. Occasionally, a photo will go beyond just being a moment captured, and invoke emotions in the viewer. This is such a photo. Good idea about having photos inspire verse. I've previously done this with @Ali Anani and @Anees Zaidi who took up the challenge.

    I always loved going to zoos when my children were younger. This picture is beautiful and to me, this animal doesn't look scared or hurt. He looks curious. I think some of them are as curious about us as we are about them. Beautiful shot and glad you had a great time. Also very glad to hear the zoo is well kept and takes care of the animals. Thanks for sharing.

    Before I read the Comments, I was caught up in your excitement, @Kevin Pashuk and the photo makes the eyes really stare hard. I detect a hint of sadness, or resolution, and the long nose adds to the length of the sadness, accentuating it in a nosy frame of mind and spirit. It deserves its own poem! And I'm holding a Poetry Contest where a photographer or artist submits up to 5 pieces and the writers will then write an original poem. Keep a lookout! I'm still writing the Entry Rules! Encouraging your submission of this image. Truly deep.

    #3 I am sure @Tony Brandstetter that I would not have had the same reaction to this photo if the mesh had not been there. It invokes powerful ideas. For me, it has stirred up thoughts around other creatures and even people we put in cages (or confinement) for either pleasure or convenience. House pets, our senior citizens, our poor... the list goes on. I am positive that this baboon in this particular zoo (not all zoos are equal) is better cared for, and has more social interaction than the groups I mentioned above.

    30/08/2016 #6 Praveen Raj Gullepalli
    #3 Great questions dear Tony! Do we need zoos or circuses, just to entertain our kids? If it is just idle curiosity, isn't Nat Geo enough? Isn't caging cruelty to animals? Isn't destroying their natural habitat (adding insult to injury) a criminal offence? You reminded me of this poem...excerpt below: ...I know why the caged bird sings, ah me,
    When his wing is bruised and his bosom sore,—
    When he beats his bars and he would be free;
    It is not a carol of joy or glee,
    But a prayer that he sends from his heart's deep core,
    But a plea, that upward to Heaven he flings —
    I know why the caged bird sings!
    - Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872-1906)

    Photographing animals behind the cage gives a different perspective. Incarcerated for a crime they did not commit. What is the trade off, how do we learn about these precious creatures? Does it take the sacrifice of some to save the many?

    Love the picture, and hope to see more. Not familiar with the Rainsongs. After a year of hunting the used market, I recently bought an Epiphone Ultra 339, which has an added acoustic pick up, and a USB connection. Blonde, nice. My other instruments are just relalatively low end although my El degas acoustic is....about 40 years old.

    My mouth organ was dearest to me since my childhood. Later, when my cousins came visiting our home they banged it very hard on a staircase but thankfully nothing happened to it. I couldn't store it well as we shifted from one house to another. Its very rare sight now to see children playing with a mouth organ.

    Calling yourself anything with "amateur" is probably the understatement of the year. Your pictures are flawless​ and look highly professional to me.

    #2 Thanks @Franci Eugenia Hoffman. I'm a sucker for lines and textures in a shot. This scene has both in abundance.

    Very interesting @Kevin Pashuk, especially the shadows created by the slats in the bench.

    Hang in There! This rather large bee was buzzing around the Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington, Ontario. It was not as agile as the other bees, and even found itself slipping off this branch. I captured it just before it fell. Don't worry, it flew away, with just its ego bruised. Kevin Pashuk

    #1 It almost looks like I blended images Tony, but this was pretty much as shot, with the exception of some tonal tweaking. The leaves and stalks under the water were there already.

    While it's not a sunset @Matt Sweetwood, it is actually a sunrise over the mountains in the interior of British Columbia, Canada,. Given the difference in time zones, I was literally up at the crack of dawn. Kevin Pashuk

    Please dear @Kevin Pashuk- could you send me a copy as I want to print and keep looking at. I see great potential for unfolding many stories by stretching my imagination

    That is so mystical @Kevin Pashuk...one looks over the firs, the forest, the clouds and the hills, to the fire in the sky that hits you straight in the eye! Will make a great frame up / mural on the wall!

    Great shot Kevin! I find that early morning, late evenings are the best light to shoot. Like your post, getting up early produced a dramatic image

    #3 Thanks @Robert Bacal. I always do a bit of post-processing in Lightroom of my shots. Not to change them, but usually adjusting the tonal contrasts to make the photo more like what I remember seeing with my eyes. In this case, there was very little adjustment. It was truly that spectacular. 5 minutes later, it was spectacular in a completely different way.

    Amazing @Kevin Pashuk It looks like a painting. Is this how it came "straight out of the camera' or did you modify it afterwards? What is so striking is the detail fades as you go farther back in the picture. I think I'd like this for my wall!!!!

    I somehow felt this photo is relevant. This little visitor at a recent BBQ attracted a lot of attention... much like the bees on beBee lately.

    Side note: Taken with the camera on my Samsung Galaxy Note5... I'm continually blown away by the quality of the camera in my pocket.

    Why don't you post your favourite pics taken with your phone camera?
