first id like to say thank you very much for the feedback. it is much appreciated.

as for what camera i use, im using a Canon Power Shot S2IS 5.O MEGAPIXEL.
its about 6 yrs old but still takes amazing shots.
i do all my effects in photoshop 7.
as for locations i shoot in florida and in georgia. i take alot of my outdoor shots in georgia. have some great spots i can shoot at there. waterfalls and what not.
if youre looking for great spots to shoot at in your area i recommend going to state parks. sure you cant lug a bunch of stuff out there but you can find some excellent locations to shoot at.

i have a ton of pics up on my facebook if you like what you see here. they are shots from various toyslines, halo, marvel legends, marvel universe, dc universe classics and gi joe. check it out if youre interested.

if anyone has any questions or would like some pointers feel free to email me.
once again thank you for all the great feeback it is much appreciated

Wow! I was expecting you to say you were using a nikon with 70 bajillion megapixels! Further proof that if you are good at taking pictures, it doesn't really matter what camera you use.

Mine has 8 Megapixels and i can't get it to do a goddamn thing half the time, so it's never the tools, it's the craftsman.

Those are badass. I love that you're using Photoshop 7 and still got this great of degree of edits to the shots. Those turned out great. Seriously, all of them. It'd be tough for me to pick my favorites.

Rick and Rex watch out! I liked the one of the Blueshirt and Duke, never saw that one before. I'm pretty sure this guy has the next banner in the palm of his hand.

I need to check them out again... Maybe save them to my desktop so I can view them all at once or something. The great thing is you can always go back and check them out multiple times and catch something new.

If you're on Photoshop 7, I think we're up to version 12 (CS5) now, or something... A lot of things have improved. It's pricy but if you can get your hands on a copy, a lot of things work much better. 7 should give you a good deal of the options though, but around CS2 (version 9) they introduced several things that helped organization of layers and added some other helpful effects.

Welcome aboard, I've enjoyed your work over at Joedios.

Snake, you ain't kidding, at least I got a couple banners in.

Looking forward to enjoying more of your work which will help motivate me to learn more with my camera and confuser.

Cheers
