[Official] OCN Camera Thread - Page 1915

post #19141 of 29551
Hey guys, need some suggestions!

So, Valentine's Day is in two weeks, and with exams that same week, I need to start working on a gift now. The last time I was in SD with my gf, we took some photos together with her borrowing my camera. I was thinking of getting prints of her favorites and framing them for her.

So, any chance anyone here has suggestions on where I can get prints online? I live in Merced so the only local places here are WalMart. And for that matter - any suggestions on good places to buy photo frames from online?

Much appreciated!

Here's to hoping she doesn't follow me on OCN. Derps.

For prints there are Mpix, Bayphoto, AdoramaPix, etc...got a costco near you? lol

As for framing IDK.

costco small prints are on fuji paper, dont remember what the big prints are (could be kodak).

if you have time i would suggest adorama photobooks. they look great and are fairly cheap (8x8 12 pages are like 30 bucks)

i usually just frame photos myself. pick up a frame + mat at ikea then cut the mat to fit the photo.

I've a Costco near me but no membership frown.gif And I won't be heading back to my parents' anytime between then and now so I can't use their membership. Going to give those print services a good look.

And thanks for the Ikea idea, mz. Going to see if they have those in stock online.

Pretty new to photography having got my first 'proper' camera for Christmas (Canon 500D).

These are the first three pics I'm happy enough with to share. It's taken a while to simply begin to use F stops / ISO / exposure length etc let alone get a 'photographer's eye'.

Anyway, these were taken from my balcony with my post-Christmas present to myself. A WEIFENG WF-591 Ballhead tripod

Brutal thoughts / critiques please smile.gif It's the only way I'll get better!

Thanks

Reincarnated, when you mean printing you mean like a few small prints or like REALLY BIG HANG ON WALL printing? Also, I think I'll get a 1DIV if I can find a good deal on one. Yess.

A few small prints. I'm thinking of a few 5x7s, maybe one 8x10 or 8x12.

I like them, way better than the photos I took when I got my first DSLR. They could do with a bit of work in post processing though.

A wider angle lens should probably be your next major purchase though, if you're going to take photos like that a lot.

Thanks. I didn't want to photoshop them before posting them. I do too much of that kind of thing in my day job.

I would like a wide angle lens... broke though. Having a baby in a month or so and the DSLR for me and iPad for my wife at Christmas were the last big purchases for a while smile.gif (also desperately saving to buy our first mortgage free house in the next 5 years).


That kind of photography doesn't interest me specifically. As I said, I'm still trying out a bit of everything. I macro lens is on my wishlist but it'll be years before that purchase!
