Photo skills II

Well… after some LightRoom tweaking and human filtering/censorship :). I’ve managed to get my first Nikon D40 set together !!

I’ve received a BBQ and some tools for my birthday recently and guess what, the sun was shining and we had a nice evening with a lot of meat πŸ™‚

So without any further rambling, here are the D40 pics !!

Complete set here…

Photo skills

People who know me, know that I’m still looking to buy a ‘good’ entry level digital slr ! To be specific, I would go for a Nikon !

And guess what, the misses has got herself a Nikon D40 through her work !! So technically it’s not ours and it normally has to stay at work, but because she just got it, we have to test it, not πŸ˜‰ ??

So expect to see some nice pictures in the future, taken with this beauty !! But first I’ll have to read some docs to get a hang of the RAW processing… thank god for LightRoom !!

Eye Candy – Mark Zug

Again a Magic the Gathering artist ! Those cards are just a major art collection and I’m just warming up to let you see what are the beauties.

Now we have Mark Zug, an artist with a ‘soft touch’, it’s like all his drawings are made to glow. I just can’t put my finger on it why, but they just look stunning !!

Also his Dragon representations are superb, so definitly go check out his gallery here

Product overview – photography

Recently I got myself an iPod Nano… ( I’m cool, I belong to a trendy group of people LOL )

To be honest I like the design of it ! I like it so much, that I was fooling around with my photocamera to get some nice shots. But unlike others I lack the experience and the material to get something decent ! Most of the time I just love to have some nice shots up on my windows desktop…

But it didn’t work out this time, but behold what did I see in Flickr, there is an iPod nano group !! Let me tell you that some of the people in there did what I was trying to pull off.

Some of my favourites !

Eye Candy – Ryan Benjamin

Here is a guy who is climbing up to stardom ( my personal view πŸ˜‰ ) !
Ryan Benjamin is a very talented person, who draws amazing characters. I just love his work on the Star Wars series… it’s just very realistic.

On the other hand his style also fits very nice with the premium A list comic super heroes, like Batman ! It seems he is busy with some Batman issue, but I can’t find any reference for it… except a preview on his deviantart page !

For more info just check out his own website here !

Sci-Fi lists

Mr. Michel has commented on the Sci-Fi top 10 created by the readers of SFX ! Most of his comments are very true, but like anything else regarding taste, everyone has his own special list. So here is mine πŸ™‚

By the way… I left out all the Anime/Manga movies, because otherwise I should create a top 100 list.

  1. Alien
  2. The Thing
  3. Star Wars : V – The empire strikes back
  4. Blade Runner
  5. The Terminator
  6. The Abyss
  7. Dark City
  8. Equilibrium
  9. Dune
  10. Tron

Some comments, Star Wars IV just missed the lists and this because I didn’t want to put movies from the same ‘trilogy’ in here.
Alien and The Thing are both on the first spot actually, I couldn’t decide, so those 2 are sorted alphabetically !
