May 7th - Self

In keeping with the theme of Self Portrait, here's my post for today. That's me with my "other" camera. The one I use at work.

It's not as artsy as jude mc, not as stylish as CJ (pipe and all), not as striking as dR, not as sparkly Jeanne H-R, not as direct as Ray P., but it is mine for today. There are quite a few other nice ones today, all worth mentioning, but I could be here all day!

Tweaked in PS, levels and unsharp mask. I have to say that I had human help on this, though. I needed a human tripod and a human remote as I have the mechanical equivalent of neither at this time. But I did everything else....

Canon EOS 300D Digital Rebel
1/100s f/5.6 at 55.0mm iso400 full exif

other sizes: small medium large

LOL, okay Todd, I'll well remember this shot any time in the future
I start complaining that my camera seems too heavy. Truly, you
got me beat. And nice job here with this image.

Nope, doesn't fit mine either. It's bigger than my whole camera! Costs more, too.

A Canon lens eh? Bet it doesn't fit my Rebel;-)
Great Shot, Todd!

Hi David! It's Sony alright.... A DXC D-35 camera with a Canon lense. I use it at work to "make" TV with.
David Mingay07-May-2004 22:19
That looks a whole lot more Sony than an 828!
