I took this picture at Hart Plaza in Detroit MI. when I was there for the FUSE-IN festival last summer. Not sure what the artwork represents, but it looked like a stargate to me.



another picture from downtown Detroit.



this is the masonic temple in Detroit. I actually went to a techno party held in one of the rooms in the basement. Before going in, I actually wondered if I was going to be part of a mass sacrafice.

Hi there Adamj!

Tell us a little about the kind of photos you'd like to take.
Low light? lots of action? time exposures?
There are lots of things to consider.

Here is a link, that contains other links regarding how to buy a digicam.

digicam info

This can get you started..And I'm sure Enron, and the whole photog crowd would be glad to chime in!

Hello AdamJ!

I would reccomend looking around on ebay for something second hand, you can get an entry level pro-sumer camera for around about 100 pounds. All I can recommend is that you do some research into cameras before you buy one. If you read a couple of reviews you will quickly get a feel for what you are on the market for. I recomend www.dpreview.com this was the most helpful site to me. Good luck!

Ok... Im quite proud of this picture:

Thanks AdamJ.

I took this one last december, I feel that the bridge takes up too much of the image, I would have preffered to get a greater view of the lake in the background, I feel the image lacks a sense of perspective. There were these kids about to run onto the bridge and throw stuff into the water and ruin the serenity of the scene, so I had little time... excuses, excuses, I know... Any comments?

Another macro shot, although admitedly, photoshop was used to add much of the dramatics to this one... is that allowed? What do you guys think about using photoshop to manipulate photography? Personally I've been experimenting with it for hours every day over the last couple weeks, doing this and that, and I feel somewhat hesitant posting things which are heavily altered. In some ways I feel that its all part of the creative process, although it does feel a bit like cheating. Any comments?

It's only cheating, if you don't tell anyone!

With digital photography, it's really hard NOT to apply some basic darkroom technique. A little contrast, a little color adjustment, some cropping.

But if you start adding elements, or removing elements, applying extreme filtering effects, then it's a different story. I think it should be mentioned at that point.

BTW, I need to upload some photos soon..

I think Space and Modulus have given some great advice…Especially the link to DP Review – That’s the modern man’s online camera bible….

If you’re looking for a camera to develop your skills with, I think you’ll be pleasantly pleased with what’s available within your price range…Used or new, cheap or expensive….You can develop the skills you need on a disposable camera – Harnessing the benefits of better and more expensive cameras will become second nature once you have spent some time dedicated to learning the basics


Yeah – I’d be proud of that photo to Modulus! Wow!


I like the subject matter of the second image with the bridge and reflection…I’m not sure about the framing though – Vertical or horizontal lines that intersect dead center usually throw the viewer’s eye for a loop…If the decking of the bridge were placed in one of the thirds, cropped from the diagonal of the reflection up, thus allowing more lilies to fill the background I think this one would have come off even better – And maybe take it again at dusk to mellow out the exposure?

But like you said….It’s tough to pull of the perfect shot when you’ve got little kids who are about to splash your gear!


I promise I’ll get around to more comments and post some more photos later….It’s been a busy past few weeks!

Dont see it as cheating at all. Especially if the work isnt documentary Photography. I am professional photographer/digital re-toucher. I still constantly learn new tricks and ideas by accident and from others, photoshop is a complicated tool that requires a lot of skill and allows for an extreme amount of personal creativity and expression. Oh and that flower pic is awesome, nice work!

The_Modulus WOW. That is stunning. Great shot.

Been a while since I looked at this thread. Some new ones by me.


The sky was edited. Perhaps a bit too yellow for some peoples tastes, but I like it

Ok, I'm just going to throw this idea out there for discussion; how about ATS run a photography competition? Something like the collaborative fiction forum runs, a once-per month kind of thing? I was thinking a topic could be set and a winner chosen through popular vote... any takers?

I'm headed out to the Karoo (the dessert in South Africa) for a week on holiday and will try to return with some descent shots. I stumbled across this on dpreview.com which talks about the use of Photoshop etc. in modern photography and its... ethical? usage... Cheating?
Thanks everyone for the comments on my pics, I appreciate it.

P.s. Is this not just the most beautiful thing ever? Beauty!
I've spent all day fantasizing about owning it... holding it... pushing its buttons... one day when Im rich.

Sounds like an interesting idea. I don't know if i'd always be able to participate myself, but could be fun none the less.

I don't think using photoshop is cheating at all. It's nothing more than the digital equivilant of a dark room in my opinion. Of course Photoshop can do a lot more now, then it could back in the day, there are tons of cheesy/useless filters. But there is only so much Photoshop can do. You can make a good photo look better, but you can't make a horrible photo look good. And believe me, i've taken a lot of bad photos that had no hope of looking better.

About that Indicar photo in that article. If I were the judge I would have thrown that photo out too. It looks horrible. It would look better without that 'zoom' effect or atleast toned down a lot. It's just not aethstetically (i hate trying to spell that word) pleasing. It actually bothers my eyes to look at it.

I want a DSLR so badly. I have a film SLR camera but it gets expensive buying and developing film after a while (and not really worth it, if you get a lot of crappy shots)
