Answer: you shoot like a girlHi againMore Like This
and thanks for all the responses to my last journal entry.
First I have to clarify: I think that most people that say that i shoot like a girl, don't mean it in a negative way. They often express it by adding that my pics are so romantic and fragile or something like that.
I just always wondered why ppl think that this might have something to do with me being female. When ppl learn about my job, meaning that I am a mathematician, they seem to be surprised, like that wouldn't be typical female. Although then my photographic work looks typically female to them.

What other lenses would you recommend? Keep in mind that I am on a tight budget. But... my birthday is coming up in August I am photographing a wedding coming up in August as well. I have started shooting people rather than just nature. I just haven't gotten around to making another deviantart for the people photography. (I don't want to mix nature with people). What do you guys recommend?? Also, how do y'all feel about putting film lenses (with adapters) on digital cameras? I have heard from some that it's a cheap alternative that can work nicely if you get a good film lens. I also understand that I would be shooting in manual mode and I have no problem with that.
