Steve Rider Photos



Intermingled with his passion for computers is Steve's lifetime fascination with photography. These days, being somewhat of a techy type, he is doing digital photography exclusively. No doubt you are too. Today you can actually get better pictures with the most high end digital cameras than film cameras could ever produce, even 35mm cameras can not match the latest digital SLRs.

Currently Steve is using a Canon EOS 5D digital SLR, pictured above. This camera is one of the first reasonably priced digital SLRs with a full size sensor equivalent in size to a 35mm film frame. At 12.8 megapixels it takes very satisfactory photos.

If you are considering buying a digital SLR camera, Steve certainly recommends the Canon line. Of course if you already have a collection of lenses for another brand of camera, perhaps from an older 35mm SLR, you might want to go with that brand in order to continue using your lenses.

Many people report complete satisfaction with Nikon cameras. There are other well respected brands too.

It is extremely easy to use a digital camera. And it's easy to muck about with the images later on your computer too. Most digital cameras include photo editing software on a CD.

Steve also has a Flickr account, a SmugMug account, a Picasaweb account and right now he is testing out Jalbum too.


Steve has many of his cycling photographs posted on his newest photography website,

Steve has many other places where you can see his photos, including domains of his own where you can view photos as they are hosted on Flickr or Picasa. You can also view his photos on the highly regarded SmugMug service, or directly on Flickr, or Picasa.

Backup Your Files!

Don't suffer the pain and embarassment of losing all of your digital photos. Back them up to CDs or another hard drive. All hard drives fail, eventually, and if your photos are all on one hard drive and nowhere else, you are courting a photographic disaster. Back them up. Really.
