Default Need photos of photographing, laughing people

Hi.
Inspired by the comments on my thread about webdesign (http://www.stevesforums.com/phpBB2/v...?p=76558#76558) I need some photos of a man and a woman taking photos, which I could use for the banner.
The perspective should be something from the side, but I could also need others.
Does anyone of you maybe have such pictures for me or does anyone know where to get them?
I'm happy about every answer.

A suggestion... Maybe you can get a couple of your friends, to pose for such a photo... I mean, you can use one of your cameras for the cam that the persons in the photo are using.

Set a spot where the two will be taking photos, and with the use of a tripod, snap the scene first with the man holding the cam faced to the right, then take another shot, this time the woman is at the right facing left. Merge with photoshop and I think that's it!

Although I might be wrong and I totally didn't get what you said. :lol:

Thanks.
But I didn't want to take the photo myself, because I don't have an appropriate cam I could use for the shot.
I could only use the Fuji and it doesn't look like a real cam, more like a toy
But thanks.

PS: Why didn't you get what I said?

i read that two ways - you dont think you can get a good shot with either of your cameras

or you want a old style slr to actually be in the picture

if it was the first - why not? its not the camera its the photographer

and the second one - most people have parents with old cameras sitting in attics/cuboards etc!

Kex, davebaird hit the bird on that one. What he said was what I meant, you might be wanting a more "pro" look to the photo.

Hi.
My second sentence in my second post answers your question:

Quote:

So, I meant the cam that should appear in the photo.
Unfortunately my parents/grandparents don't have an SLR cam or sth. like that.

Or maybe you can find a public domain stock photo you can use online.

yes. I looked for that for 2 days now. but there are no sites, I know where I can just use the photos. Their copyright is at the photographer, and I also didn't find anything usefull yet.

Fantastic! I really think it's a great way to go (as you already know from my comments in the other thread).

If you can find the right photo (or photos), I think it'll really "stick in peoples minds" -- associating the happy couple with your site name (DigitalPleasure.net).

I really like the graphics type style you had in the photo of the women in one of your designs, so perhaps you could find a way to take a real photo, and make it more graphics like using an image editing tool.....

I'll keep my eye out. Lots of people have self portraits of themselves using a digicam (pbase.com, etc.). Perhaps you could convert two different ones into a "graphics look" (with their permission, if you can't change them enough to mask their identities with graphics editors -- combining two different photos if necessary) That's just my thoughts on it....

Actually, some models (happy people with cameras) would be even better (but harder to setup, shoot, etc.).

I'm looking forward to seeing some of the draft designs, once you locate suitable photos.
