We'll, I finally broke down and went pro on Flickr
. And so far I have been happy with it. I like Flickr a lot, although there are a few things I can see them improve, I like them a lot better than some of their competitors. There are definately a TON of people on there, and its great to see the beginners and pros side by side. You have everything from perfect shots to camera phone shots. Unfortunately I have had a few problems with their uploader for windows, but im starting to get used to it.
You can find my photos here: http://flickr.com/photos/ryanguill/
If you are on flickr, let me know your username so I can add you as a contact, especially those of you in the coldfusion community.
Just so you know, I bought a Canon Rebel XT (350d)
back in November and I love it. I prefer it over the other digital SLRs. The 20D id the big brother to this camera, but I prefer this one because it is much lighter.
I have the kit lens (18-55mm) as well as a 75-300mm Canon. I have two 1GB Sandisk Ultra II's which are awesome, as well as a Hitachi 4GB CF Type II microdrive which is also very nice. And thanks to my mom, stepdad and sister I have a bogen 3001bn tripod with a Manfrotto head, which I love as well.
So, I plan to make 2006 the year of the photos for me, so expect lots of great photography as I learn more. But I would love to see some of your photos so let me know if you're on Flickr!
P.S. Thanks to my Girlfriend for my 70-300mm lens!
