Welcome one and all!

Shutter Geeks is for the photographer in all of us. We don't care if you're an amateur or a pro, a Nikon or Canon user, digital or film, we want you!

Let me start: my name is Jennifer Tai, I live in rainy, character-rich Seattle and I take pictures of people! I have a photog and it's at I just started doing this as a business (taking pictures not building photogs) and would love to meet more shutter geeks from around Seattle and the world. I also have a Flickr page at and you can find me on Facebook and Twitter and Plurk and Pownce and Rejaw (look for "Jennifer Tai" or "jennemede"). Not JUST a shutter geek ;)

Come on in and introduce yourselves!

Sorry I haven't been updating and posting as much. Work has been busy, with school starting for my kids. I promise to be more vigilant!

Featured Streams will feature the Flickr (or any other photog RSS) of Shutter Geeks members or if no one steps up, I'll just feature some of my favorite Flickr works. So send me your RSS links and I'll feature them for a week!

This week's Featured Stream is Megan E, a young photographer who's already had quite a few images that made Flickr's Explore. Her creativity, skill, angles and strobe work is just insane esp. because she's using - voila - a Rebel XT and a couple of Vivitar 285s. Go over and give this young lady some love. She deserves it!

Megan - amazing photos! I love your lighting! I'm still working on my off-camera flash knowledge everyday both in-studio and on-location whenever I can. Thanks for sharing your work! -

I just wanted to say what a great group. I've always been into photography; someday hopefully I'll have the ability to travel around and snap some great shots with a decent camera. =) I tried linking a picture but for some reason it didn't work. Oh well, I'm posting them on my profile to.

Hello! My name is Bret Konsdorf. I love photography and so I thought I would post a image!

@Andrew, I do cross processing? You lay down a layer of curves, tweaking each of the RGB grids. I call this semi urban. I have an urban tweak that's grittier looking but I use that for headshots of "seniors" (high school sense of the word), urbanscapes.
