    Ah to dream
    lol, ahh to have more money.

    im in no way trying to downplay what's being accomplished here. but i see very expensive cameras in alot of peoples hands, i see very expensive glass, i see them traveling far and wide.. i set tons of light equipement. and very cool oportunity shots.

    i know these people are good, and yes there are some things money can't buy.. but i think alot of these people have alot of opportunity handed to them, alot of money, and alot of time.

    Me myself, I work 10 hours a day (nothing to do with photography or art at all). and even after all that i still dont have enough money to get any of the equipment i want. (rent, grocerys, bills, living stuff.) or really the time. (i squeeze as much photography as i can in).

    anyways, im sure alot of people here will be dissapointed with what im saying here, but I am in no way downplaying what these people are accomplishing.. i think they are fantastic photographers. I guess im more ranting about the fact that im annoyed with my own situation.

    Im an underdog kinda guy, my teams are underdogs, my racers are underdogs.. im rooting for a guy with a cheap camera in his hands (and trying to make myself that guy :P ) of course not for this contest although that would be nice, just in general. My camera is alright d70s, can't tell you how hard it was to save for that.

    and im sure there are lots of people who have come from very little and made it big, and those people and stories are incredible.

    whatever, ignore me, but ill be on here posting pictures, please comment on them, criticise them, and tear them apart.

    I have alot to learn.

    I really agree with the concept of the better equipment, the odds go up that the shot is as good as the equipment, but it sort of falls off when you set a typewriter down in the jungle and wait to see how long it will take for a book like The Invisible Pyramid by Loren Eiseley. or a Jane and Dick book to be published by the local monkeys.

    I just met a Pro by the name of Jasper James, and he showed me his new 600mm Nikon lens and he told me that three shots he took with this lens paid for the lens. So you shoot a neighbors birthday party, and get a filter, shoot a high school senior picture and get a nifty fifty! It is the same with racers, those underdogs who stop smoking and put that money into new tires or something, eventually something is going to come out of persistence. There are several members who in the time I have been bugging the forum went from wondering if they should quit their job and go for the brass ring, to wondering if they should hire a assistant. If you shoot like crap like I did last night (had a long talk with myself already) it wont happen equipment or not.

    Most of it was! I did manage to get a few good ones in and that is what you saw, but I shot many many shots that had problems with not paying attention to details. Many of the shots were blurred. I should have used a tripod, and a shutter release. Not watching the background to see problems, bad focusing! Part of the problem was using a new camera and have not read the manual yet (fixed that) and I had lights, second time for that!

    My first time I shot eagles I shot several hundred pictures, NONE of them came out, except the ones that they were perched on a branch, the second time was better, the third week better yet, next Sunday I hope to have a cracking day.

    Anyone posts pictures that are some of their best, everyone has throwaways. It is like throwing darts, the more I practice the luckier I get!
