Uh, kinda defeats the purpose of posting here and sending them elsewhere.

I've seen other requests in this forum, maybe we need them to come over here Wink

Or start up a photography sub-forum.

I take a lot of photographs in my work so I don't always go the 'whole hog' in my bbq pics, they're basically just snapshots. Maybe next time I'll go the extra step and shoot them right instead of just snapshots.

My photographs make the food practically good enough to eat! Laughing

I do use Photoshop and super-impose pirated magazine photos over my slop. (Just kidding)

This is a good topic. Some members of this forum, especially Don Marco, take nothing but great photos. Others of us can always learn from their tips and advice.

For me, the lighting is always the problem...

As some may know, I build custom fishing rods, and, take many photos.
Here's a couple pics of a rod I built & donated to the Troops in Iraq.


Handle is made from hundreds of pieces glued up ( each color is a seperate piece)



The flags on the rod blank is all nylon thread..


I just use an old Nikon 3 MPixel digital. ( Macro setting for rod stuff)

Here's a cool program...FREE...search for "Irfanview".Great small program to edit photos Wink
