#53780 The Photo Challenge

Posted by John T Roberts on 28 February 2009 - 06:50 PM

I'm starting a new game on this board to highlight our photography talents. It is similar to the Song Game. Here are the rules. A person posts a photo and then someone else posts a photo that somehow relates to the one last posted. It can relate in a number of ways. For example: if a person posts a photo of a red brick Victorian building with a woman walking a dog in front and a Honda Accord and a van parked in front, then the next person can post a photo of another building with red brick, another photo of someone walking a dog, a photo of just a dog, a photo of a car, a photo of a van, a photo of a woman, or another photo of a building of the same style. Since the building is red, one could even post a photo of a tomato because it relates to the color of the building. The shots do not have to be urban in nature, but you do have to be the photographer, or be in the photo. Also, the shots do not have to be from Fort Worth. They can be from anywhere.

The rules in short:

1. Post a reply photo that somehow relates to the last one posted.
2. You must be the photographer, with one exception. You may be in the photograph and you had someone else take it.
3. You may not reply to your last post unless no one else has replied in 24 hours.
4. You may not repeat your photographs posted in this thread. However, you may repost photos that you used in other threads on this forum.
5. If you wish, you may post how your photo relates to the last one. There may be times when someone doesn't get the connection.

OK, I'm going to start it off with something fairly easy to post a photo that relates. This shot was taken at the Main Street Arts Festival at night.

To make the next post a little easier, the next photos could be: a photo (day or night) of the Burk Burnett Building, a photo (day or night) of The Tower, a night photo of any type, a traffic light, tents of similar color, other Main St. Arts Festival photos, people photos, blurry people photos, Sundance Square plaques and logos, or even a street sign. Use your imagination and be creative in your replies. Have fun!

#64148 California Photo Journey

Posted by Art Cooler on 10 January 2011 - 12:46 PM

I was priviledged to visit San Francisco and Northern California over the holidays. Weather wasn't always agreeable, but when it was I managed to get out and do some photography. Thought I'd include a few snaps here for the forum's perusal:

#49113 Photos of the distance. (Telephoto lenses)

Posted by Brian Luenser on 31 July 2008 - 08:41 PM

I thought I might start another Topic here in General Photography. I take some pictures with my big telescope but now supplement my magnification obsession with a big lens on my camera. I have posted several already in various areas that have some other (like architectural significance) but these pictures are just purely for the sake of "how far can I see?"

This shot is with my Rebel XSi with a Canon 400mm 5.6 and a Canon 2X converter on my tripod from my 34th floor balcony of my place in The Tower.
I took these pictures yesterday when I got home from work as the storm was approaching from the Northwest. At that point Fort Worth and Arlington was deep within the clouds, but Dallas was still bright and sunny. really stratified the landscape by distance. I like the effect. And though far from "Tack sharp" gets me pretty close to Dallas. Closer than I would have imagined without using my telescope. The near foreground is the Loop 820 area (See Luby's on left) the intermediate ground is North Arlington and then of course Downtown Dallas. Take a look.

#75854 Concert Photos - The Diabolical Machines Live at Lola's

Posted by Fort Worthology on 12 March 2013 - 01:26 PM

This one's admittedly a little self-serving, but hey, not enough local concert photography in this place, and I thought it'd be nice to both promote my band (which now contains two forum members!) *and* a great local photographer, so here we go.


My indie rock band, The Diabolical Machines, performed at Lola's off 7th Street last week (along with our friends Lindby and Abandon City).  My friend Melissa Claire Photography was on hand to take photos.  To be clear:  I did not take these.  Melissa did, but I am posting them with her permission.


It was a ton of fun and we can't wait to do it again.  We had Lindby's drummer Logan as our guest drummer for this show.

#85153 "Left Bank"

Posted by Austin55 on 25 June 2014 - 11:05 PM

Do you guys love me? Cause I got a siteplan. You can click it to make it bigger.




Included are a some very interesting things.


-There's a lot of parking, but honestly it's less than I expected and a lot of it is within garages. Lots also leave room for potential expansion in the future. Overall, the design is much better than just to the west, for example. 

-At the back is a lisitng for a 250 unit highrise. 

-Lots of retail fronting 7th street, good news. 

-Harold street looks to be the "main" street of Left bank, most of the major buildings are set on it. 

-There's no interaction with the Trinity. This is dissapointing. 

-Looks like the majority of the buildings will be 4-6 floors. 



There's also this kinda cheesy water coloring rendering that doesn't show much, but maybe shows off some of the architectual motifs and gives a decent idea of what's up. 



#67747 Wing Suit Panorama Video

Posted by 360texas on 19 December 2011 - 02:03 PM

While visiting one of my other forums I came across this panorama video taken in Norway.

The fellow has a FISHEYE lens video camera attached. He JUMPS OFF a high mountain ridge and soars to the highway far far below. He is using a WINGed SUIT.

During his descent.. use your mouse to scroll around / up and down to see the terrain. There two Suit flyers... you can see the other flyer back up up on his right... the later on his left back angle.

It autoreplays .. so you will get to see the flight a couple of times !

#62222 Modest Photoshoot Around the Museums

Posted by Fort Worthology on 22 August 2010 - 11:46 PM

I actually did a photoshoot with a model! First time for that. I'm trying to expand my photography out of my comfort zones of architecture, street, etc. so this was a big deal to me. All shots taken around the Modern and Kimbell art museums in Fort Worth's Cultural District. Click to view on Flickr (there's more on Flickr than here). Model is Merry Jett, camera is a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT with Sigma 28mm f/1.8 prime lens (roughly around a 50mm equivalent on a Rebel).

#61949 Spanish helicopter rescue

Posted by 360texas on 07 August 2010 - 11:49 AM

From Spain: Ignacio Ferrando Margeli the photgrapher captures a the scene with his dSLR camera.

Ignacio describes this scene:

"I just finished a panorama (#1 below) that I have done to show a rescue exercise with helicopter. The helicopter leave an specialist on the summit of a roc or "needle" where a climber had an accident, then he descents to help the climber and is taken with a rope. Is a very difficult excerise because the summit is really small and the specialist has to exit the helicopter with a lot of care."

1. Panorama image about 3mb Flash format. Climber to be rescued wearing white helmet is down and to right.
There are 4 people in the scene. Helicopter Pilot, Spanish Guardia Civil rescue Specialist, the climber to be rescued AND the Photographer. The real question is "Where is the photographer standing in this scene ?"

#56304 The Skies

Posted by 360texas on 06 July 2009 - 06:53 AM

Look around you will find many timers with different configurations from $19 knockoff's to Canon's high price. If you are using Canon's you can always fix/replace under warranty. LOLLLL But then you already know about getting camera's repaired. Nice that you can try one out in FT Worth Camera Shoppe. I find that some of the menu systems and ease of operation goes along way towards customer satisfaction. Some of the timer menu's are darn right confusing and hard to operate.


This is a link to a "User Manual". Its as close as I can get this morning : http://www.luminous-...s/tc-80n3.shtml

#78020 Fort Worth photographers meetup?

Posted by Austin55 on 25 June 2013 - 10:15 PM

Would anyone be interested in a little get together of local photographers? We could have a little meet up someplace and talk cameras, share some tips, look at equipment, and maybe go on a little walk someplace and take some pictures. Perhaps even someone could organize a specific special location that is usually not accessible and let a little group of us go and take pictures. 


How's that sound?
