Nice.. I especially like the bull picture, although probably more for what it represents than the image itself.

Are these done with a proper camera, or are they digital?

/*wonders if you _can_ take long exposure piccies with digital camera*/

I agree with you about the bull - the idea is better than the execution. Still - when I work out what I'm doing I might go back to it as a subject - or perhaps publish a copy that isn't max compression/worst quality jpeg :-)

These are my first attempts in many years to use a proper camera, first time ever with an SLR, having eschewed digital for a bit.

My digicam will do long exposures - but it's range isn't as good as the SLR, and when I last tried it wouldn't compensate for the exposure time by reducing the apeture (probably just a setting mind!) so the ones I took were heavily overexposed.

I considered taking the shots in parallel with the digital (I was carrying it) but decided in the end that would be too much fiddling.

I sometimes tinker with the idea of trying my hand at photography... but I really don't know where to start.. and my finances bite deep :)

I guess my speciality is much more on the post-production side, anyway.. I'm terrible at original artwork. but give me an image/photo to work with and I can do wonders.

Still.. one of these days I'll no doubt dabble :)

I'm a definite dabbler in the creative arts. For inspiration I went out with three aims:

  1. Get some long exposure shots

  2. Shoot a whole 24 exposure film

  3. Pay vague attention to venta's composition competition - here

The main differences between a digital camera and film are:
1. Lens – SLRs let in a lot more light
2. Film – this has more resolution than a digital camera.

That said, you can get SLR type digital cameras. The problem is that Digital camera’s are soon superseded whereas Film cameras are fairly stable with improvements coming in the film.

Canon do a nice SLR digital that's compatible with (indeed part of the range) their EOS series (of which I still own and occassionally use my 15 year old film one, proving your point).

The camera I've got from my brother is an EOS. The EOS entry level digital is the next target of my savings account.
