Hey guys,

so it's been a few months since I got my 450D so I've had a chance to get used to it and get a few good photo's together so I thought I would share:

If any of you guys have a Flickr or similar (which I'm sure you have!) I would love to have a look!

Cheers,

Chris

Nice pics. I would love to do some painting with lights, but haven't done it yet. I use smugmug.com for my hosting, and as you can tell, my main thing is sports photography ( actually only have competitive cheerleading on my site right now..)

I like your bridge shots. Did any one give you a hard time taking those? I was shooting under the GWB last summer and a FED helicopter escorted me to the ranger station. They didn't do anything but ask a bunch of questions. I did not have to delete the pics.

I did get beeped at by a lorry, but I think that was because my torch light was distracting him. It's a pretty rare used bridge I was on and, despite the photo looking like the motorway was busy it really wasnt (i had missed rush hour).

I'm sorry to hear of your ordeal, I suppose in today's climate even doing the most innocent of things can be seen as suspect to some people. I know when I was recently out at a stately home & park taking some pics I had to think twice about where I was pointing the camera in case anyone thought I was taking photo's of children or anything. It does seem like political correctness gone mad at times but working in a college myself I can see things from the other side of the fence so to speak and so can understand (even though I don't always agree) with why many policies and such are put in place.

Whats the GWB by the way?

GWB = The George Washington Bridge. The hudson river has a beautiful foot path that ends at the bridge. You can hike for hours.

They're not so bad in the UK.
It's just airports and Military things that are off limits for picture taking over here.

First came a shuffle. Then an 8gb 3rd gen nano.
Next a macbook.
Then an Ipod Touch. And a Nikon D300. Not an Apple but gets used with the macbook

From a legal standpoint you didn't do anything wrong, and certainly didn't have to delete your photos. I believe that, according to the law, even if you stresspass somewhere and take photographs you could be cited/arrested for tresspassing, but your photos taken cannot be taken away from you. Maybe if you were photographing some confidential information they could, but I don't think there's anything confidential about a bridge that anyone with working eyes can see on their own.

that's what I don't understand about all of this fuss about taking photos around buildings and even sports stadiums. Just going there and watching what's going on, looking with your own eyes, can tell you a heck of a lot more about security and whatnot than some still images. Do they really think they're going to prevent an attack by making Joe Shmo with a DSLR give up his photos? Meanwhile John Doe is snapping away with his 12MP 8x zoom P&S camera without so much as a second look from security or anyone else!

they didn't make me delete the photo's. The land on the Jersey side of the bridge is a state park and it is not posted in any way.
As fare as buildings go, some (how many I don't know) are copyrighted and you need permission to sell photo's of them. same with sports, they want to control the sale of your pictures. at the Meadowlands (giants stadium) the rule is " NO PROFESSIONAL CAMERA'S" inside. All the point and shoot you want.

But surely the level of professionalism is determined by the photographer just as much as the camera, it doesn't matter if they are using a point and shoot, a DSLR or a mobile phone camera, if the photographer has no clue then the results will show. Similarly if someone who knows what they are doing is using a point and shoot camera or a mobile phone camera, a friend of mine takes his small point & shoot to gigs and has gotten some awesome pictures!

Crazy rules lol

Sorry, misread the post. Though I have heard from people who were forced to delete their shots only to learn later that they didn't have to.

But those rules are absolutely ridiculous. As MrChris said, it depends on the photographer as well as the camera. I may have a basic DSLR like a 400D that they think is "professional" and just taking photos as a hobby with no intention of selling anything. But a professional shooter could take a good camera like an LX3 or a DP2 (DSLR quality in a P&S body) that they wouldn't view as "professional" and take good enough shots to sell.

I guess that's how it is with regulation though, making up stupid laws that don't do anything because the people in power have no clue about the issue they're making a law about!

I did inquire about what constitutes a professional camera. They said "any camera with a removable or interchangeable lens". Yankee stadium lets you use your camera if you get annoying with it. They make you put it away or ask you to leave if anyone around you complains.
