Hey folks!

First off, a happy new year to everyone ;)

Yeah, finally bought my first DSLR 4 weeks ago... a used Canon EOS 500D (Rebel T1i). I initially bought it to do some film tests with it for use with CGI and switch to a better body later on (the 500D can only do 1920p20 max, thats why), but I found photography to be a lot of fun as well :)

So here are some of my first photos... since I am still experimenting and learning, feedback, crits and comments are very welcome...

Lens used: the standard 18-55mm f4.5-5.6 kit lens, Canon EF 24-105mm f3.5-4.5 and a pretty neat 50mm fixed focal length f1.8

by the way... I am looking into some new "allround" lens to replace the 28-105.

Recommendations? I am not planning to spend a lot of money on L lenses (I guess it wouldn't pay off since its just a hobby and I am just using a crop sensor camera).

Got my eye on the EF-S 17-85mm f4.5-5.6 IS USM and the EF-S 18-135mm f4.5-5.6 IS... they cost around the same. One has USM focussing and the other one has more focal length. I can't decide...does any one have either one of these lens?

I like #4 too, as well as the depth of focus on the M4 shots :) I glanced at it at first and saw 'oh, ammo, nice', then noticed the mags and the rifle :)

Also, I always thought Oli Braun was someone different... never knew your name was NLGFX_ger! hehe.. When are you going to use your x-ray camera on things other than cars?

The first watch, bullets (where did get those !), close of the car dial, the sky above the girl, guitarist (colors), would be my favorite

I knew there should be a plane photography ;)

Congrats on the camera.

thanks man! :) plane photography? you mean airplanes? Yeah, I wanna do that, too... but I need to get some tele lens for that first. The 105mm is not enough for that I guess (well, its a crop sensor camera so it comes out a bit more, but anyway...)

Bullets are demilitarized... no more powder in them and the primer has already been set off. Shopped it to make the primer look original :D you can get those bullets anywhere without any problems. Well, as long as they don't work anymore. ;)
