    Ready When You Are Prestigious

    Have you not used IG since August of 2015?

    I've never used it. I take it that's not a thing any more?

    “The greatest teacher, failure is”

    Question: I used to use iPhoto, but then Mac created Photos and its not good for what Im trying to do. Just have a lot of pictures and videos from over the years and I need to organize them all. I searched but nothing comes close to how easy iPhoto was to use. I know people like Photos but I can't organize all the shit I have in albums. The events and ability to move things was so easy to use. A lot of the other application don't take videos and I'm not trying to spend a lot either.

    GooglePics seems like the best option but kind of worried about the security behind it.

    I'm not a photographer or anything but i felt like this would be a good thread to ask this question. Anybody have any suggestions? Any advice would help

    I wish I could help. I hate using Photos on mac. iPhoto was so much better in my opinion.

    Went up to northern Minnesota today, alongside Lake Superior mostly, to test out my new Canon 80D, and this was the best I got out of it today, not changing any settings, just using the auto focus. There's a beach/sandbar I drove out to and looked back towards the sun after crossing this walking bridge. If you open the image in a new tab you should get the large version of the picture

    One of my favorites from last year. Pretty awesome sunset and reflections to see.

    Went to the Minnesota Zoo today and just took a bunch of shots, trying to test out both near and far shooting and in various lighting conditions. Pretty much just auto-focus; I've applied some filters on them via Instagram

    So, I just learned that trying to share from Flickr is a pain in the arse.

    My friend came to visit me last weekend. Outside the planetarium.

    I should remember to bring a camera next time I do the zoo's adults night out.

    Yeah man, that's what I was there for, their monthly adult night. It's amazing; no screaming kids, no giant families with 8 strollers, they serve beer and wine, plenty of room to move around and see what you want to see, etc. It's great. With my membership it was free, and bringing my friend it was only $10. So if you got a camera you want to use, it's a great time to do it.

    I forgot; do you live in Minnesota? Or are near another zoo with an adult night?

    It's way too late, or much too early Prestigious

    I've always had an appreciation for photography and now I want to get into it. A family member suggested the Nikon D3400. Anyone have any other recommendations for a first camera?

    I got myself that exact set up a couple months ago and its been amazing as my first DSLR. I'd recommend it purely based off my good experience with it thus far as a complete amateur.

    So I'm in the Navy and recently got stationed on a tiny uninhabited island about 70 miles off the coast of California, exploring and taking pictures out here has been absolutely incredible.

    Hey thanks, I have the Sony A6000 and I think for all of these I used the Sigma 30mm f2.8 lens.
