    Are foxes rare over there?

    I see them all the time.
    Consider yourself lucky. South eastern Norway is a land who's only abundance is trees and cold. Further north and west there are more moose and deer, but here the wildest of animals to roam would be the occasional squirrel, accompanied by some finches, magpies, flies and mosquitoes.
    A badger was spotted nearby last year, and deep in the forests I've seen a deer and that one fox, but without looking for, and being up at around 4 AM, I rarely see more then the occasional squirrel.
    Hell, I saw more wildlife when I visited London. In the outer district I saw a whitetail prancing about.
    Not that it's a bad place to live, it's not at all, but as a man who fell in love with British Colombia in Canada, that's my ultimate goal. That's where I'm going to try to live. The absolute indescribable inherent wildness of the nature coupled with the most wonderful people I have ever met means I want to be nowhere else.

    So to answer your question, they're not rare but they're incredibly shy and hidden. We have a tendency to wipe out entire species here, like wolves or bears (technically there are like 200 left in Norway so they're still there, but really that's as good as extinct) and soon enough wales too. Foxes have good reason to be shy.

    Edited:

    Yep, looked it up. A woeful 164 bears left in mainland Norway in 2009. Probably even less now.

    I have a 5D mark II but a mark III would be brilliant. I need a backup camera since I tend to go places cameras can easily break anyway and the mark II would be a great backup. SUBMITTING!

    Wait, I can't find the contest.

    I'm so happy right now, found out how to enter the DEBUG menu of my Pentax K-x and then figured out the AF TEST function to fix my back focusing issue. Sooo much better now, it's spot on. Ugh I was getting so frustrated not being able to ever use the AF effectively because of this issue and now it's pretty much perfect even at 1.4

    Woah, First time posting here in about 6 months.
    Hey everyone.

    I'm restoring this bad boy at the moment. I've replaced most of the leatherette, realigned all the dials, and cleaned most of the camera out.

    It needs a lens transplant (front element is missing), a shutter speed dial transplant (it's scratched up to hell), and the split-focus viewfinder thingie needs to be adjusted, as well as some lubrication here and there.

    I have quite the issue with making things worse as I start to fiddle with small pieces.
    But the clockwork of a camera is something quite amazing.

    So I'm going to be taking some portraits of a friend for his resume. What kind of tips do you guys give for headshots? He's doing it for a casting call for a movie.

    I've never done this kind of stuff before, and if I'm honest I'm not too keen on doing this frequently. I just want to help him out.

    Can you link it?

    For some reason, vimeo videos start automatically when the page is loaded.

    Also, hi again, I just got unbanned after being banned accidentally :|

    I went back into the shop and it seems that its only slightly more than color. I think its daft personally, but then again with black and white I don't think you can just dump it in a machine.

    I'm personally a huge fan of Fuji superia 400, and Kodak Ektar is also great, I have tried porta 160 wasn't really impressed with the quality for the price.

    You need to talk to your professor, we can't really help. Just ask why you are getting the grade you are, and how to do better in the course. Show him you are willing to do what it takes to improve. I did that with my photo journalism class when I had a C, got it up to an A with a lot of effort.
