A Little Bit

Well, Ive been out shooting with the 5d for the first time in forever and it was strange somehow to be shooting with it. I was just back to the same old shoot shoot shoot that digital photos let you do so easily. Still, it was nice to get back into it a bit. One strange thing was the fact that I am in between lenses so I am back shooting with my old standby zoom. I am so used to my prime lenses that it felt almost restricting in a way to shoot with a zoom. At any rate I picked out a few images to post as desktops so I hope everyone finds something they can enjoy among the selection here.

I just found myself with a newly developed roll of film so look for some new images to pop up here or on flickr. Please remember that these images are for your own personal, non commercial use and any use outside of these means is only acceptable with permission from me. Thanks for understanding and enjoy the desktops!

    It was a nice day, warm, sunny, cool breeze in the air. Good day to be taking photos of such things I would say.

    These are very nice and I really enjoy your work. When it comes to my background, I gotta say, it just cycles through your shots.

    So in that vein, I’m hoping you’ve got some material for spring, some of your great macro shots or maybe some landscape shots.

    Anyways, I look forward to whatever you put up,

    yours truly, Evan

    Hey evan, your not the first to ask me for some spring desktops :) It’s true, I do usually like to have some seasonal type things in the mix and I may have one that I can toss up that some people might like, something nice and green.

    Also as soon as I get through this series of shots in the wooden floor corner I will get back to my normal desktop shooting :) hmmm… also, my trip to germany may yield some nice new material as well.. in other words, plenty to look forward to!

These rules also apply for any artwork or imagery submitted and shown within this site which was created by an artist aside from myself.

When sharing images via your personal blogs I kindly ask that you link back directly to either the post the image was taken from or the base of the website at www.fiftyfootshadows.net and give a credit to www.fiftyfootshadows.net.

Support the artwork you admire! Also, it is greatly appreciated if you do NOT link directly to the zip files. This is more or less the same as re-posting them as it circumvents the tiny bit of support I ask of you which is to simply link back to the original post for others to enjoy the site.

It’s not fair to artists if you do not credit their work and link back to the original content creator. It is theft plain and simple and blogs that attempt to somehow be mysterious by not giving credit to the creators are simply hurting the artistic community as a whole. If you love it so much then please, support it! The artistic community on the Internet is based on trust. Without trust then what do we have? are you going to be one of the responsible users out there or will you be among the bottom feeders, stealing content and passing it off as your own to make a quick buck in ad sales.

Use your best judgement and we will get along just fine.

Thank you for your understanding and support!
