I live in the town of Eastchester, located in Westchester County NY, and am interested
if there are other digital camera enthusiasts in proximity to this area who are interested in meeting for coffee and Digital camera talk.
I've had quite a few digital point and shoot cameras, and am now using a Canon Digital Rebel XT which is a complete learning process if you'd like to really take better pictures.
My hobby is making photo slideshows with the help of my camera, adding music to them, then uploading them to youtube. I've got about 28 so far, and I'm always looking for an excuse to create more. Yes, I'm retired, and have plenty of time to devote to this great hobby I'm happily addicted to..
I don't like the effects that using the flash gives my photos, so I rarely use it. I do prefer to use existing light, so most of my shots are taken in "low light".....
The lens I use for the low light indoors is the Canon 50mm, 1.4 lens. I've never used a tripod since I'm never in the same spot twice when I'm taking the shots.
I'm enclosed a few of the shots I've just mentioned, and both were taken with the 1.4 lens I just mentioned. I guess I was about ten feet away from this great NYC Cabaret Broadway performer so, I kept shooting away. Again, never, ever use the flash, and I like it that way. Yes, I had to use an ISO of 1600, but although there's "noise", I find I really don't mind the "noise" when I've managed to "capture the moment" just right!.... Please tell what you think!...

Okay, I hope I get some response for the coffee and digital camera talk.
Again, the town I live in is Eastchester, New York. Hope to hear from you soon....
And, a Happy New Year to all.
