Hello everyone.


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

I live in the U.K and retired,my main

hobbies are photography and metal

detecting. I am always on the lookout

for `coin forums`to broaden my knowledge..

(never to old to learn)..

 

Hope you don`t mind whilst I am here I will

try and post a photo, (not very clever with

forums)hope it works... thanks....

Welcome aboard, and post away with the photos, they are not only tolerated but rather encouraged here since we are seriously addicted to this numismatic stuff.

 

I am rather particularly jealous, I could love detecting for treasure in the UK, I would be on the prowl for Northumbrian Sceats, and 17th Cent. Tokens mostly :ninja:

Hi Art, afraid i am a newby all round, only just

started internet and posting..My interest in

photography is rather casual and nothing serious,

also with the advent of digital photography and having

dismantled my darkroom(hands up who remembers them)

I am starting anew with `Photoshop` and am rather

challenged at the moment..

(old dog/new tricks spring to mind)

but thanks for the interest shown..... Gorpol..

 

p.s well if you like coin photographs here you go..

Actually it is okay to post images, we like seeing this stuff. So far coins are not offensive. :ninja:

I remember the darkrooms very well. I've never really had much of a setup at home but I used to do darkroom work with a friend of mine in Atlanta when I lived there. He's a professional and has an extensive setup.

 

I haven't done anything in photography for quite some time. I have only one camera left - my Hasselblad. I'll never sell it because the prices have dropped so low that it's not worth it. It's the 25th Anniversary 500. A great camera.

 

Haven't really done anything w/digital. I have a camera and take some snapshots once in a while. I've been messing with coin photography but frankly, it's getting the better of me.

Hasselblad, very nice medium format camera,yes

the prices have tumbled and it will be a good many

years before they rise again as quality cameras

for the collector.

My last posted image took literally minutes to

achieve, had It been produced in the darkroom it would

have taken hours and tested all of my skills..Gorpol..

I always wanted to get a darkroom setup at home, but I never did. I haven't been in one since High School. :ninja:

This is so true. I find the lighting with the digital to be more difficult than with film. Probably just practice and I don't really have much desire to work at it. I have a full studio light set, haven't taken it out of the boxes in years. My wife used to get annoyed because I'd just take snapshots of the kids and grandkids vs. portraits - but they always made a big fuss and didn't want to be bothered. SO.......

When moving over to `digital` one of the problems amateurs

come across is trying to use their old lighting system with their

new digi camera, finding that they can’t achieve lighting

sync because their new camera with all its bells and whistles

may also be using its flash to obtain....

focus/redeye reduction/white balance/first curtain/slow curtain. !!!!

Which one is taking the shot. d***it....

 

aaawwww Give us a roll of film.……Gorpol..
