These were shot with a Nikon D90
Lens: Nikon 50mm 1.8 D
Aperture Value: 3.2

The colors were adjusted in iPhoto.

Photoshop Filters

These are some pictures that I have been working on with some filters in photoshop. I feel that they definitely give the photos more pop. I will post the original and then the "after" photo.

New Camera. Help me.

OK, I have been using a Nikon D70 for about 4 years now, and it was time. I just picked up a new D90. The pictures you see here are unaltered. The grey-looking photos are the D70(#1 and #4), and the brighter are the D90(#2 and #3).

They were each taken on the "A" setting with an aperture of 3.2, matrix metering, no exposure compensation, with the on-camera flash, in auto White Balance, ISO 200.

I guess I just need some reassurance about my purchase, and some advice about how to go about fixing a few things;

#1. The D90 pictures look very faky-digital to me, am I going nuts?
#2. The D70 pictures have problems with skin-tones, but it's like the D90 is way overdoing it, trying to compensate for the lighting. Like messing with the contrast of the pictures? I don't know. Check out the red color of his shirt. It's more accurate in the D70 photos.

If you could give me any setting advice, I'd really appreciate it. I am just not a fan of the over-processed, digitally altered look.

This is my daughter taken on Halloween. I couldn't believe the weather that day. Truly amazing.

It's nothing super special, but I love this shot. I'll post some more nature-type shots later.

Canon Lens

I have a lens that i want to sell.  If anyone is interested, leave their contact info on a comment for this post.  
Its a Canon 17-85  f/4-5.6 IS USM
It is a great upgrade from the kit lens.  It is image stabilized and has the USM focussing motor, so its super fast.  It sells for $450 at b&h, but I going to sell it for $350. Im also throwing in the UV filter that is in the pictures.  Its in great condition, let me know if you have any questions.

here are the photos of it:

Family Photoshoot

This pic was taken last weekend at Porter Park. This was the first time I took pics of a large group and it was a challenge to get everyone looking great for the pic. But, I think this one turned out nicely.
