I have a Canon Rebel XTi DSLR with an 18-55mm lens. I also use two digital Point & Shoots, a Nikon S4 Swivel-Body camera and a Fuji F10 camera for night/club photography Finally I still have my first and old trusty Minolta X700 purchased with my first tax refund ever. I have a variety of Tokina lenses for it.
I'm a HUGE fan of Lightroom. I use Lightroom more than anything else.. I also use Photoshop for more creative work.
I love to do night photography, city lights and clubs (with musicians, etc).. I also enjoy doing PinUp photography and also un-posed, "real" and candid street shots, anything that seems odd, stark or comical. I'm also one of those people that takes pictures of almost everything I eat.. In close-up gory details.. Finally I love architecture and love shooting old buildings with all their amazing details.
No, I have stopped shooting film but I miss it.. We used to think before taking a picture. We would never waste photos casually.. I used to also be fascinated by the different qualities of the various film emulsions. I have taken darkroom classes and I also had the privilege to take a class offered in Ansel Adams darkroom in Yosemite (In 1986?)..
My name is Christian and I run the Los Angeles Photoshop User Group. I love Photography and shoot a variety of things but I especially love night photography, architecture/buildings, pinups and candids (Food too!!).
Professional and very welcoming group!
