Post Photography Anyone?

I was just reading a thread over at MacRumors, and I thought that a thread that could showcase photos that ehMac member have taken would be an interesting way to display our talents.

It would also be a good way to offer critique and advice as a way for us to improve our skills. If possible we should indicate what settings were used to create the photo.

I know quite a few of you are into photography, so why not post your pictures and see what we are capable of?

Currently I do not have anything worthy to post, however as soon as something becomes available, I will add it to the thread.

Good idea tho not everyone has FTP I think.

This actually made it to the National Diabetes promotional material. My little guy just being a kid.



and this with an early Kodak digital taken off the Pacific coast and I had no idea the camera would pick out the colours so well.



and this likely my favourite a spectacular sky in British Virgin Islands - taken off the deck of the place we stayed overlooking Sir Francis Drake channel. Again magical light and the camera did far better than expected.
I sigh every time I see this wanting to go back.
Truly a paradise.

Macdoc, one word: Stunning! That second shot is amazing.

I have taken some pretty decent ones, but haven't figured out how to use my Rogers webspace.

One day...

MacDoc,

A question on a personal note:

You mentioned that the picture of your kid was for the he National Diabetes promotional material. Is he diabetic?

I'm just curious because I have had diabetes for 12 years now and I was wondering how someone of his age copes with this condition.

I realize that most people do not have access to ftp or a web server, so that could limit their ability to post pictures. But hopefully there will be enough that do have this type of access.

I have a photo that I retouched in PS that I would like to share with everyone, however I can't seem to find it right now. Once I do I'll post it.

Maxpower - yes Kenz has diabetes - developed it at age 9 and it was a very tough couple years for his mum but there are silver linings.
He got into a pump from Disetronics which has made life much better without the needles 4 times a day ( you can just see the tube of the pump hanging out from his sun shirt ).
Tho it still is much management he gets easier control and can in general eat what and when he wants as long as he tests regularly.

The silver lining is that his mum is employed as sales rep and trainer for the pump manufacturer - nothing like "hands on" experience to be effective.

I was very proud of how he and his mum handled a very disruptive and threatening illness.
Thanks for asking.
Do you use a pump??

BTW for all parents if any kid develops a case of "stop every 20 minutes for a restroom break" do have them tested for diabetes at the first opportunity.

I'd love to share some of my orchid, cat, garden, and other digi-pics... but I don't have a site to host them.

Maybe I should finally get a .Mac account!

MacDoc,

I inject twice daily. I have been on this method since I was diagnosed and I find that it works quite well for me. My glucose levels are managed quite easily with the injections, diet and exercise. Although I do have my highs and lows, for the most part my diabetes is managed.

I don't know that much about the pump, although from what I have read, it helps mimic the insulin delivery that your pancreas would normally produce. The only thing is that I would think the pump would be an inconvenience and limit your ability to swim, shower or generally move around. But whatever works to manage this condition, I am all for it. Wish your son the best of luck from me, and tell him that even though the diabetes may seem like a pain sometimes the most important thing is that he is running around and playing like in your photo. It sure beats the alternative.

Max - You are type II I think since you can manage with diet and exercise as well. Juvenile is type I.


Anyone who has a few picts - limit 2 per person please I can upload and I think Macspectrum would as well. Yes this is a good time to ask about ftp access for this type of venture.
