PicOTD thread
 
I thought it would be cool to start a thread to post pics that members take.

1. No posting pics that you didn't take yourself.

2. Post processing, GO FOR IT!

3. Just post your coolest shot of the day.

GO

post processing is part of photography, dodging and burning and exposure control was part of the dark room days, and Photoshop, Lightroom, RAW, Paint, w/e you want to use, is part of digital photography.

personally, if im going to put a photo out for people to see i'm going to try to make it the best i can. if it comes out of camera completely perfect then boom to the web it goes, but 99% of the time it needs slight tweaking of some sort. just my .02, sorry for the rant :)

is this supposed to be pics i took today, or recent, or what?

thank you..couldnt have said it any better myself.
though it shouldnt be used as a crutch--sometimes you need it to achieve whatever it is you were trying for.

Sometimes it is not about being a photographer, sometimes it is just about hey look at this.

My girlfriend snowboarding for the first time last night. (That is her brother in the background, he actually knows what he is doing. I stick to sledding)

Bruce Jibboo 01-09-2010 02:25 PM

i think eagle likes his decision to go with nikon, bad arse pic!

skeezer 01-09-2010 03:18 PM

i wonder if this is going turn into eagledigitalphotography.com in a few months

then he can quit his job, mod his car, eat burritos and sell pictures all day

Eagle 01-09-2010 06:47 PM

Last 2 posts = ROFL! I do like burritos. :s00ls:

Post processing, ok cool. I agree. I prolly initially suggested against it because I have no PS skills yet. I'll update the OP.
