I'm a Digital PERSON of interest, and love taking all kinds of pics. Actually I still have a single film body, which sits and reminds me of the good old days of paying through the nose for developing. Anyone want to buy it? :)
I am a Field Tech for CPI covering Western Canada - I completed my Certificate in Photography at SAIT. I have been taking digital pictures since digital cams came into being, and lots of 35mm prior. Weddings, events, and commercial work. Enjoy teaching new to SLR Users. Questions ??
Fund raising and Charitable events are my favorites.
A 35mm slide I took when I was 16, of a summer sunrise in the Ghost river area at 4:45 am. The sky was a blue I didn't know existed, and the mountains in the foreground were mere silhouettes. Made me want to know how to that again.
My Canon Mark IV. It has all the speed and performance I need, and my 70-200 IS USM F2.8 Lens which I already use and love is fine for most anything. But then again, Christmas is never far off, and new cameras are always calling ... buy me!
Would like to have been about 2 miles away from ground 0 on 911, with the camera gear I now own. Then I could have got some "real" images, not the "govt approved" story pictures the media was allowed to feed us.
An excellent opportunity to ask those really dumb questions we've all had to go through.
Thank you for sending me a reply so quickly, even though you are not even in town at the moment. Its nice that you did. Was feeling a bit grumpy as unexpected company came in from out of town to visit and interrupted plans to go shooting at the sunset meetup. We had a nice visit and I will just have to go sunset shooting another time. I hear they come every night and one almost like it in the morning. Where have I been?
Hello Ameer. I see a number of people in this meetup have the Canon 1D. Would love to see and talk about it close up sometime. I enjoy my little 40D but father nature tells me I need another one with smaller numbers on it.
Thanks for joining Studio & Strobes Camera Group!
I don't remember if we ever met at the CPG. But in any case I look forward to seeing you at a future Meetup!
Sorry for taking so long to get back to you, I was away on a business trip this last week. I could come pick it up if it's ok with you? or if you intend on going to the next meetup, I would be more than happy to get it from you then.
Hey Ameer, Just wanted to say thanks for everything. Was a great day for shooting and learning. your expertise was invaluable.
Will see you there bright and early. =) and thanks again.
i would love to go, where is everyone meeting up?
Thank you Ameer, and thank you for the information abou the stampede I will keep it in mind lol.
Hope to meet ya in the next event!
