This deviation was featured!

Stunning work! :heart:

fave the journal article to give your art more exposure (if you wish to), and don't forget to look at all the other works! :)

I bought many DSLR but never for myself weird eh? The rebel is my wife's. I do use it more than her. I am waiting for my retirement before I do buy my first or maybe they will give me the D3 as a go AWAY present. They should.. we are getting 20 D800 for September. :-)

The D800 is the cheapest of our cameras, we work mostly with the Hasselblad H4D-40 kit about +-$30K . 20 Nikon D800 because we have 120 photography students. They all come in with their own camera but all their assigments and portfolio prints have to be done with a full frame sensor. :-)

O_O

:iconplanningplz: man I'm so envious with that~~~they get to have their own portfolio being students~~~~

~~not to mention wield the D800~~ (the D800 is the successor of the D700, right? The D700 also is a full-frame DSLR)

and while I'm here with juz... :iconlonelyplz:
no portfolio, Phils is juz no hope for these kinda luxurious jobs/stuffs...:shrug:
and if there's any hope at all, you need to have a Mark II or something equivalent to get there.:shrug:
so instead, you end up being a plain hobbyist.:nod:



and you got Hasselblad... O_O :faint:
wow you...you're... :iconrlytearplz: :iconchuuplz: no words can fathom you on that one!:XD:

btw, what photos do you have here shot by the Hasselblad?:iconhappymeowplz: ^^

That's why I recommend collegiate Photography program... like the one I took and work for now. [link]
The Hasselblad is not my style, I hate studio work and it's not a nature photographer's choice. That said, I plan to try to capture birds with it this summer.:-)

Even better.. check our blog.. [link]

we don't get that here though.:shrug: or there's one probably in Manila but :iconsighingplz: costs a fortune.

hmmm...are you gonna be alright holding that Hasselblad outdoors?

Hehehe.

So Michel it's like you have a stock of cute little birds and the only thing that is stopping you
from sending them abroad is that dA doesn't support it. :p

Hi Nora. When I visited Europe I did notice the commercial sale of imported birds. In Canada, it is illegal to import or export our fauna. All our exotic bird has to be breed in the country... that's why we pay a fortune for our exotic pets.
Now if I take the plane with my own gold finch pet and it run away in the Greek country side, will I face prison on my return? HeHe :-)

Many things that are illegal in the world, we manage to make legal here in Greece
or we pretend that the illegal action never happened. o_O
So you'll probably be more than just fine. :}
