I was recently asked by a friend of mine to photograph her brothers and sister in a forest in black and white. It's for their parents' anniversary next month. I hope this works out and I need to start buying black and white film...

Problem taken care of...



I was trying to decide what digital slr to get, but my dad decided for me...





Canoscan 8400:

The feature-rich CanoScan 8400F Color Image Scanner lets you produce superb high-speed scans of a wide range of materials. Now, you can easily scan valuable photos, important documents, books, old slides and even medium-format film. Your results? A spectacular 3,200 x 6,400 color dpi resolution (maximum) and 48-bit color depth, for over 281 trillion possible colors.

Thanks to its high-end image processor and USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interface, this powerful scanner can provide super-fast image transfers to your computer, allowing you to see previews in approximately 2 seconds. For added convenience, four easy buttons--scan, copy, email, and PDF-automate the scanning process; so your projects can get done more quickly. Just position your original, select the use for the image, and in seconds it's ready to go. Canon's Hyper CCD III System on the 8400F Scanner features a 3200 dpi sensor offering greater light sensitivity with smaller pixels for capturing more image detail, as compared to 2400 dpi scanners.

Are some of your most precious images on old slides and negatives worn and collecting dust? Canon has a simple solution: FARE (Film Automatic Retouching and Enhancement) Level 3. Its built-in retouching technology handles the most common problems found with old negatives and slides. It can remove much of the dust and scratches that may appear on your originals. It can also revive images that have faded over time. Plus, Backlight Correction Technology works to adjust image exposure, and Grain Correction will help smooth out grainy images.


Here's some images with the scanner:

Getting Away from everything for a lil bit, no matter what you do, is quite relaxing.

Can't decide. I'm broke as a joke right now, but want to get a digital slr.

Should I go with a Nikon d70? a Nikon d50? or one of the new Canon Rebels?

Hi

I'm just starting this out, but this will be dedicated to photography in general, my interests in photography and will show my evolution in photography as well. Hope you enjoy the journey with me.
