Well, we´ve read about the nicknames. Now, let´s see the faces behind the nicknames!

Here´s me:


Taken by my girlfriend Jessica (who is a very talented photographer, btw) when shooting promotion pictures for one of my bands, COY. More pictures http://www.sallyproductions.com/coy_jessica - here .

So come on, let´s see those faces behind the names!

I guess the myth about photographers not wanting to be in the picture themselves seems pretty true...

Here I am, at "Sierra La Pedriza" mountains. Behind me, "Las Torres"(2015m).

It is one of my favourite activities.

You are correct all the way, if I can avoid getting my picture taken I will and when I cannot 9 out of 10 times I will make sure the picture is ruined (i.e. hand before face or duck away or something like that).

I usually have one picture of me taken per vacation and they are usually from a low point with me on a high point in my "I am omnipotent" posture. The only true photo shoot I ever had from myself is on my wedding day.

there is also an art to moving your head just as the shot is being taken, I like to see motion in photos :>

I'm also in the "don't get in the picture club".

I have almost no photos of myself. And those I do, I look awful, I have a
problem with smiling properly. I had jaw surgery for a birth defect, and I
think that messes it up, my smile now looks like a frown.

Also just not very into having people in shots.

What an excellent idea, why have I never thought to move a little bit for my 'here's my camera' self portraits.

Next time I see a mirror in the field I'll get the 16mm into action.

Bingo, it's KM17-35/2.8-4.
But I bought a little bazooka the day before yesterday, right after I came back to Tokyo from Hong Kong.
Now, I'm looking for a place to hide the big box of a little bazooka.....
My GF is coming back to Tokyo tomorrow but I'm leaving for San Diego at the same time tomorrow and I can't bring the little bazooka with me.
She is going to get pissed big time, if she finds that big box and a little bazooka in it.....

You are kidding, right?
Please tell me he did NOT get a 200/2.8 with the 9000 he just paid €30 for.

These two were taken by a friend during a studio look'n'feel that we had in our photogroup. The model that we should have used canceled and we turned out to model our selfs. Most made better models that me ;)

First one, only one light source, with only the raster(?) on.


The second one were quite fun, and there has been noooooooo NeatImage applied to it ;)


If the 9000+200/2.8 story is true I might put http://www.algonet.se/~teroe/images/me/scar%202-800.jpg - this picture of me in the thread.

I would, but my mama told me not to tell lies.

While I think the guys at orsm.net will appreciate that picture of yours more than the folks here, the story is indeed true.

The lens is not in a very good shape. I think it's actually contacted something sharp and hard more than once since the front element actually has tiny chunks missing. Nevertheless, it still performs admirably for the price. =D

One TOTALLY out of focus shot, one handed in a hand-held mirror against a wall, 1/60 f? 4 I guess with the Flektogon + B&W filter, ISO 3200! Well, its an image I suppose!

I went to a 'hardware test day' a while ago. It was just a gear fun fest organised by a Dutch photo forum and an opportunity to mess about with all kinds of gear. I played with a Eos 1DmkII and others played with my 9 and 7D.
So then you start playing with some studio flash gear and there are no models around.. so.. we each took turns to be the guinea pig.
But I was holding my 7, 9 and 7D so everybody stormed in and hung their gear around my neck!! I say! That's bloody heavy.

So.. at the risk of having this plastered all over the net (there's a similar photo with a guy having even more cameras around his neck floating around the net) here is the resulting shot:

When the Sigma 70-200/2.8 was new, I took this one, mostly for the reflections of the bathroom lights, through a not-so-clean mirror.



For a fuller face, this one was a self portrait experiment with the kit lens on my balcony. Do you see a pattern between the mirror and the windows?



About the pattern, I do keep my lenses clean, though.

It's great to see the faces (nice pics!) behind the names not to mention we're all coming from around the globe =)
So from the Philippines with the 7D[ead] :P Here's dogears!

triggered by remote cable


playing around with the flash


and here's a self portrait - one that came out to my liking after 20 shots. Was focusing manually coz the lights inside the room had to be out and used a tripod (as dummy dogears) to estimate where my head would be located. Trying to focus on my left eye - and got it!!
Eventually used the image for my photo blog:

Here's a starter photo, I have to find something a bit better, not an easy task though... I am rarely in the picture for two reasons:

1) I'm the one always behind the camera.

and

b) I'm the one who should always be behind the camera cause I ain't photogenic by any stretch of the imagination.



I am on the left, the other guy is my cousin Joao. Taken with my 5D and the just sold Panomar 12mm fisheye, I think it has been de-fished. Speaking of fish I won the first prize and my cousin second prize (fluke fishing off Long Island, NY) out of around 50 fisherman on an anual outing with clients. If we were playing golf (which btw I don't) I would have to make myself lose to keep the clients happy. But what control do I have over the size of the fish that bites? I guess next year I shouldn't use bait LOL.

Hope I'm not gettin' too fancy here, just a portrait I have at my site already...



Great to see faces! Now, where are the women? I don't believe for a second that only men shoot Minolta.

Sorry, this is not a Minolta photo, but it was post processed trying to obtain Minolta colours. A friend went with to the forest of Artikutza, and he took this portrait with his E300 and Zuiko 50mm f1.8 manual focus

Exif: 1/160, f4, ISO100

It has some noise at ISO100, much more than KM 7D, but is is a very film like noise

MF is not easy with the tiny viewfinder of E300, and the colours are very diferent from Minolta ones.

The lens is awesome, extremely sharp and contrasty, no woman would like to be phographed with this lens.

Regards
