    I was trying to describe myself to someone

    I was going to share my Flickr, but realised I don't know how. :-|

    Oh, I know it does. I just presume that no one would want to use mine.

    @Michael Hennesy you are held to copyright laws automatically without going through a process of doing anything but if you want to have your images held up in court or really legally binding, you basically have to register them. theres a few sites out there you can do it on i think. i cant seem to think of any but maybe google something along registering photos for copyrights. people do steal images, they get passed along so easily on the internet. im not concerned unless they're stolen for commercial use. also, when images are posted on web they are at 72dpi when you should print from like 240dpi. its a total shit quality if you were to save it and print from it in any way. the file size makes it nearly impossible to do anything commercially with them cause they will not print correctly, pixelated like. also ensure your copyright information is set up on your camera with your name, so as soon as its posted to the internet its in the metadata of the photos so the photos can be traced back to you.

    Took this today and was pretty pleased with the colors after editing it in Lightroom.

    I just bought a Canon 80D on Amazon, with 2 64GB cards; stoked would be an understatement. Finally entering the world of DSLR cameras. For PC users, what's the best general software for photo editing, for beginners like myself?

    Can definitely second the notion for Lightroom.

    I have Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC but I never use Lightroom. I usually just use Photoshop even though I only know the bare bones of it. I need to dive in to Lightroom

    snagged this on a sunrise hike last week with my phone, I have 1000s of dollars of camera equipment and lenses, but for some reason this pic has become one of my all time favorites

    Awesome photo. I probably have around $1500 in cameras and equipment but I need to get better about bringing them places with me. I end up shooting with my phone a lot.

    Also, I hope people post more photos here! I'll try to as well once I get out shooting again.

    I am usually so good on bringing equipment and I had a video cam with me but I faltered by not bringing my Pentax or Canon cams that day. I am lucky that my phone (LG V10) has an incredible camera and the ability to shoot RAW dng; how I could make those sunrise colors pop. (I feel like me of ten years ago admitting to loving my camera phone would make me incredibly mad)

    This is one of my favorite shots from when Infirst started taking photos. Minus the stupid border and cheap watermark I had to put on when people were stealing my instagram photos.



    Edit: the best portrait I've ever taken. Actually one of the only.

    For photos taken on a DSLR, what's the most convenient method of transferring them over to a phone to post to Instagram?

    A lot of newer cameras have built in NFC or wifi that can connect with an app on your phone. From there you can save directly to your camera roll

    Yeah the 80D I got has built in wifi, so awesome, that should do the trick then

    That portrait is pretty damn atmospheric.

    I don't use Instagram, mainly because I don't like the square format it insists on.
