    Taking photos in class/around people

    I suppose in some ways this is geared towards Alok; I've seen the photos he's done of his friends while in class, or while studying and have really like them... The photos have sometimes left me in awe and I'd love to be able to do some shots like some of yours... but I always feel a little...

    Hey guys... Long time since I've posted in this section (my bad - I've got some photos from my Christmas holiday in Brazil I'm yet to post here!) but would really appreciate opinions from you experts!

    Monkeymax's White 1987 MR2 SC

    Yup, that's right! Continuing on from this thread here I decided one MR2 and a Pug wasn't already enough grief. Well actually a member of the owners club who is now a friend of mine contacted me to let me know of an SC that was going cheap... The owner had bought it a couple of months ago, it...

    MonkeyMax's Red 1989 MR2

    Well, I've had the car for just over a year and a half now, so this thread is probably well over-due!!! When I was a young kid (before I was ten) I used to see this lovely red sports car with pop-up headlights a lot of the time when I went to see my Grandparents. We'd go every couple of weeks...

    Canon EOS 400D everyday lens?

    Right... sorry for another question having just asked about the bag... but having just bought the camera it's now time for me to kit up. Basically I bought the camera without the kit lens as I figured I already had lenses so could live without the lens everyone seems to say is rubbish (in fact...

    Camera Bag recommendations

    Right, I've finally gone and bought myself a DSLR... ...and now it's time for me to buy a proper bag as up until now I've either been using my daily shoulder bag or borrowing my Dad's bag (well, whenever I was borrowing his camera). So, I've got 4 lenses (one bulky wideangle and one zoom) and an...

    My new MacBook Pro is causing me a headache...

    Hi All! Sorry I've been away a while! Long story. Anyway, a part of it involves my old Mac G3 PowerBook finally giving up, my PC giving off a plume of smoke a week later and not wanting to start anymore either. Being just a bit miffed I went to London one Saturday armed with my University...

    Another AGP Graphics card Topic...

    Right, well... first off, apologies for creating yet another graphics card topic. I realise there have been a few in this section within the last couple of months, but unfortunately the technology and the prices change so much that the old information no longer quite answers my question. Or...

    Painless CR2 conversion? (Problem now solved)

    I don't know if this is the right section for this question. I know the technology section would be more appropriate, but seeing as the right people (i.e. people who have Canon DSLRs) frequent this section, this seemed like a good place for it. Basically, while I was away I borrowed my Dad's...

    JVC Head Unit...

    Sorry, this is strictly speaking ICE (In Car Entertainment) but I couldn't figure if it was more technology or car Q&A and couldn't find a more appropriate section for it. If someone feels it should be moved, feel free. Hi guys, just wondering if anyone can help me out. The original stereo in...
