I thought the idea of the winners sharing their equipment and settings was a great idea, but I'd go as far as to say it might be good to see some of the 'outtakes' and just get a general sense of how everyone arrived at the photos they did.
Here are all the shots I took for the various challenges (updates following each day's challenge): Photography Challenge 'Rolls'
My equipment is:
- Canon Eos Digital Rebel XT
- Kit lens (EF-S 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6)
- Joby Gorillapod SLR flexible tripod
- Satechi WR-C100 Wireless Remote Control
As far as software for any editing I use the Gimp (mostly because I like the price of free software, but I also haven't had any problems with it. For organizing pictures I use Picasa, and also Gallery 2 (web application).
I'd love to hear what and how everyone else does their work regardless of their success in the challenge.
