Will Rogers Park is at 36th & Portland, but the area pictured is the Rose Garden, which is accessed from the I-44 frontage road just south of 36th.

It's a very overlooked area.

I know I've told you this before, but you have a great photographic eye.

Excelent composition! Thanks for sharing those with us and putting a great face on OKC at the skyscraper forum.

05-14-2007, 07:48 PM
Those are awesome shots. That first one caught me immediately, and if any OKC photo can be considered sexy, it's that one. I love your treatment of signs; they're one of my favorite subjects, too.

Nice pics J! What kind of camera do you use. My 5.2 MP Fuji camera just isn't cutting it anymore.

Pete
05-14-2007, 08:31 PM
Patrick, I highly recommend the Canon Digital Rebel. It's a great camera for the price and you can get a very good deal on a kit (with a decent lens).

It's the defacto digital SLR and if you buy one and take a little digital photo class (as I did) you can be sure your instructor will know all about that specific camera, which really helps you to learn fast.

Here's a great little how-to on photo composition:

Guidelines for Better Photographic Composition. (http://photoinf.com/General/KODAK/guidelines_for_better_photographic_composition.htm l)

dismayed
05-14-2007, 08:58 PM
Very nice pictures jbrown. I'm also curious what kind of camera you are using, and I'm guessing you're not going with automatic settings, you're setting the exposure times and things like that yourself?

jbrown84
05-15-2007, 08:28 AM
Thanks everyone!


I'm using a Canon Digital Rebel XTi as well. However some of those shots were from my previous camera, which was a Konica Minolta DiMage Z6, which isn't an SLR but has manual controls.

J you should really enter some of these in the Oklahoma Centennial contest. They are really good. I appreciate you sharing them with us and on some national sites. I love the way you capture the shots. It gives a fresh current view of Oklahoma that doesn't make us look like we still wash our clothes in the river.
So, thank you!

What is this Centennial contest?

OKLAHOMA
BEAUTIFUL
PHOTO CONTEST
What makes Oklahoma beautiful?

Perhaps it's the scenery the wide sweeping plains, the rolling hills or the corn growing tall in the fields?

Maybe it's the people the diversity, the smiles, the waves, the kind eyes of a stranger who gave you directions to the town square.

What makes Oklahoma beautiful to you?

Find it, photograph it, then enter the picture in a photo contest sponsored by The Oklahoman and NewsOK.com. There are two categories: scenic and people.

The first-place winner from each category will win a $150 gift certificate. The second-place winner from each category will receive a $50 gift certificate.

The deadline for contest entries is Aug. 5.

I think the link is this - -
