I bought my first SLR in 1982 the things that excited me most where being able to look through-the-lens and actually
focus (no more fixed focus with DOF to infinity), the ability to "change" lenses, having a "Light/Exposure Meter"
actually built into the camera and, most of all, being able to shoot COLOR...!

Honestly, I think very little about B&W... But ya, if I was inclined, I could play with it and come up with a variety of
exposures, composions, effects, etc...

Probably doesn't answer you question but it's the truth, for whatever that's worth...
I think that's cool! I appreciate you taking the time to post your thoughts.

There's so many perspectives on taking pictures, I find this interesting.

Take care,
Glen

MarceloLi -- Another great series. My fav is the cellphone shot. 'though I might be biased to concepts like that.

Zip -- Beautiful series.

Hey, just wondering if you guys would mind commenting on your photos. I for one would be very interested in learning whatever words of wisdom you might offer.

Take care,
