How do you figure? You are adding glass to the lens... At least SOME situations it will hurt it a bit...

However, a good UV filter can be nice.. I advise you get a protector or UV filter IF you remember you can take it off if you notice flare..... My kit lens gets no effects I can tell with my UV filter but my 50mm prime gets a bit of flare.. Might be because it is a recessed front element, I don't know....

Yeah, I think I'll get a UV filter for at least one lens. It's probably a good idea.

I always thought lens flare could be cured by using a hood, no? I leave an MC Protector on my FZ50's lens all the time (except for macro, when I have a macro filter to attach) and I find I don't get any flare with the hood on. I used to get some, before I started to use the hood all the time.



Anyway, I have another question for everybody who's got a DSLR .

If you could only use one lens (that actually exists now) for your DSLR for the rest of your life, what lens would you pick and why?

I can't really answer atm, but I'd probably go for something like a 17-55mm f2.8, if I could actually afford one . What about you DSLR owners?

Nice stuff, clean, professional. Somewhat minimal, but it's a good think IMO, makes you're photos the main event.

If I weren't unemployed, I'd jump.... Once you get the rep, I'd try posting it here, you might just sell it.

Here are some more skatepark shots I took the other day.





I can't decide if it's too blurry because of the slower shutter. What do you think?



Needs to be cropped...



OOOOOouuuuh, angled shots. Frainbuck, eh?



I attempted to edit this one, used the GIMP and Photomatix. Cropped and straightened in the GIMP, then super-saturated, then blended with the orignals to get the clouds right. It has this kind of bi-polar look to it, once side blue and one side orangy. I might be applying masks to make it more apparent.

Looks good. I like the colour scheme. The greys are nice and focus attention on the photographs, which is what the site should be doing.

The only criticism I would levy at it is that your logo is far too difficult to read imo. If you want to spread your brand, you'll need something clear and easy to comprehend that will stick in people's minds.

You really need something that's instantly legible and I found your logo design (although pleasantly artistic) difficult to understand. Perhaps it's just me, but if you look around the business world, you'll find relatively simple shapes and easily comprehended lettering used for logos. It's not done like this for lack of creativity, but to create an easily recognisable brand image.

Think of all the big well known brands, from fast food, to cars, to computer equipment. The majority have relatively simplistic logo formations, with lucid text, if text is present.

Just my thoughts! As an artistic form, the logo is great, but as a logo, I think there might be better choices that fulfil the function of a logo more effectively .

Well, obviously it's totally up to you, but you know that .

I like the barcode idea, that's pretty cool, it's just the font/style/word placement used for your name, followed by "photography" that I found quite hard to decipher when I first saw it.

Otherwise, good site!
