    Looking for birding shots

    Hello, I have just moved to Lake Stevens, Washington and I have seen lots of great birds but haven't found places to photograph the birds. Can anyone recommend any areas in the vicinity that are open to photographers? Thank you, Susan B

    Is Refurbished a good idea?

    Hello, I thought I had seen this question posted before but could not find it in my search. It would appear that my Canon 30D may be biting the dust and I am going to need to replace it. Canon told me about their "Loyalty" program where you can buy a refurbished camera body to replace your...

    Tyring to slow down moving sand

    Thank you both, Mike-PDX and Railgeek for replying, I wasn't even quite sure of what my question was but I knew I was really missing something. Mike, you explained why the sand shots just didn't do anything (I kept thinking that they should be dramatic). Railgeek, thank you for helping me...

    Tyring to slow down moving sand

    Hello, I haven't posted in quite a while but I would really like some advice on how to get the technique down of slowing down the water. I was at the coast during one of those "hurricane force winds" storms and I tried to capture the moving sand in the same manner that I have tried to...

    I finally had my lens fixed

    Hi Rocky, these were taken with my 70-300mm IS Cannon Lens. You were correct, they were straight out of the camera with no PP. I attached one from today that I did use the USM on but looking at it now....:(

    I finally had my lens fixed

    Well, it took me months to send it in, but I finally sent both the camera and my lens. They replaced the auto focus mechanism on my lens. Now, the big test, can I manage to get any clear shots?:) The following are just some flower shots to see if there was any improvement? Comments and...

    Sending lens and camera in?

    Bob, it is my only lens, but I tried one of ejones' lenses and it seemed to be much clearer. I still have the extended warranty so I guess I had better get it done. It will be hard to give up my camera and lens but I have been wondering about renting? Have you ever rented a lens or camera...

    Sending lens and camera in?

    Hello, I am finally going to send my Canon 70-300 mm lens in to see why I can't get clear focus:mad:, even on auto-focus (which by the way, hardly ever locks on to anything very fast). I was told by someone in a camera store that it would be best if I sent in both my camera body and the lens... is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
