Walls from the malls. Dallas.

So the following 4 images are not wholly mine; although, I did take the photographs. Long story short, while back home in Texas my aunt gave me at tour of the remodeled North Park Mall. It's evidently one of the highest grossing malls in the South and has been undergoing a major renovation project. Anyway, along the walkways are massive billboard sized posters of beautiful women in beautiful clothes glued to the walls that were covering many of the store fronts.

I was really fascinated with the way the light hit them at just the right angle so as to give the illusion that they were standing in front of you. I also saw that some of them had wrinkles and creases from where they had been affixed to the walls which you can see in most of these. Anyway, it's the objectification of women reduced to, literally, billboards cheaply glued on walls. I hope you like. (the blocking you see on each side was already there. These have not been edited in any way.)

To the 4 and the comments.....

I feel bad about posting a question like this, but I really need some advice.

Right now my main camera is a Kodak EasyShare... point and shoot, 4mpxl. It gets the job done for what I've needed so far, but I need somthing different now. Im in my second photography class and we can use any camera we choose, as long as it has full manual capabilities. I need to be able to manually focus, and adjust aperture and shutter speed as well... things of that nature. I know that megapixels really aren't that important after you get to somewhere around 5. I have friends that have cameras with higher numbers and I can't even tell a difference.

I KNOW I want digital (can't afford to keep developing/purchasing film). I want something that I will be able to use for awhile with my photography hobby... and something not too big (though that's not a big deal), and most importantly something afordable.

I guess you could consider me a beginnger, I've only being doing this for a little more than a year. I just really don't even know where to begin looking, or what to look for, what to stay away from.

If anyone could help me out that would be wonderful, I would really apprieciate any tips or advice you have. Or if anyone knows of some fairly low priced camera that meets the specifics I mentioned that would be great as well.

thank you in advance.

Side Note: I'm selling my Fuji FinePix S7000 on eBay, if anyone is interested
Banned from taking photos of public places

Everybody start snapping any government building and industrial site you can!

I'm kind of new here, and I wanted to post a few pics.  I just got a new macro lens, and was trying it out.  Let me know what you think!

There are more photos here, if you are interested.  I have personal photos here too, so you may have to dig around, lol!  Thanks for looking :)

Quick edit of a colour shot from last weekends shoot. Q.T. was a little shy to start, but she got into it fairly quick.

EOS 3 with an EF 28-105 f3.5-4.5 USM II, Portra 160VC converted to B&W with Channel Mixer, and 4 cheap chinese monolights and a 16' cove. I love studios.

For one, I gave myself up to the abandonment of the time and the place;
but while yet all a-rush to encounter the whale,
could see naught in that brute but the deadliest ill.
Picture is clickable, in case you want to see a larger one. Prints and mouse pads are also available here.
Comments are more than welcome.
And it is an old picture I took when I just started taking pictures. So now I see a lot of minuses but still like it.
