So for those that weren't aware my camera(40D Canon) had been out of commission for a while apparently with a dead shutter, I kept getting ERR99. My warranty had run out as the camera had been bought cheaply as a refurb back in january. So being as silly as I am decided to replace it myself after seeing 40D shutters for sale on ebay for $60, fortunately I was able to complete the repair successfully. I was a little nervous because I hadn't seen any mention from do-it-yourselfers in forums saying that they had completed that sort of repair themselves for that model.(though i did see one that had done it for a 20D and that gave me enough confidence to do it on my own)

This is what my 40D looked like torn down to the shutter. :oops:



And now its working like new again, hopefully it continues to :aww:


So that out of the way, I'd like to say hello to all of my new watchers and thanks to everyone for the support. :D

Here are some of my more recent faves and yea its not all photos, I look at alot more than just photography on here, these really stood out to me, thank you for looking!

Well.. I haven't been on here too much lately or been thanking people for favorites or watches in a while. I think once it went over like 1000 I just sorta left it there, it just seemed a little too overwhelming to even try. So thanks to each and everyone whos been commenting, faving or just watching in recent months, I do appreciate it.

Most of the stuff I've done on this website is pioneering work or just goofing off. I haven't been doing photography for very long but I feel like I have a pretty good base floor understanding since I started doing this in January. My biggest weakness technically is probably photoshop. I don't even know how many times I've adjusted an image and then compared it to the camera's JPG and then said to myself, good god.. I really think you do become blind if you stare at something long enough :D I think I also really need to invest in a quality monitor, I've been using a widescreen HDTV for a while and its really crap for photo adjustments. Does anyone have any recommendations for a reasonably priced widescreen monitor that also has accurate color reproduction?

So after 6 months of killing my cameras shutter I think I decided I wanna focus mostly on conceptual art and just do maybe some landscapes or whatever else when the opportunity arises, although I don't think I ever wanna get too locked into one facet. I think I'd get way too bored and that would be the end of it.. I've also wanted to do some more painting or even sculpting but I always have this tendency to bite off more than I can chew sometimes and nothing ever gets finished.

Anyhow if you want, this is a good time to say hello or tell me you hate me :D sometimes its nice to venture beyond the mundane ridiculousness that this website commands at times, one could die of repetitive stress injuries.

Heres some faves I gathered recently, good stuff!
