Re: Couple & Sales

Thank you for sharing this. I find it drives home two important points about things classic & tried and true. Your success in a tried and true sales method is one half of an equation. The other classic is wrapped up in the piece of art itself. The posing, lines, key matching and expressions are ...

Re: On a budget, but want to get a really good quality lens?

Amen, and amen: I was given a Dine 105 mm macro lens. This particular lens was originally marketed to dentists and orthodontists as a dental photography lens. It even has reference markings on the barrel. No auto focus, no camera control of the aperture (There is an aperture ring) it is a completely...

I'm definitely the "erase all" sort.

Re: Concerned That Cameras Do Too Much For You?

And to think they can build a camera that will not take an overly photographed scene but cannot develop a method that prevents people from stealing photographs already taken.

Re: Concerned That Cameras Do Too Much For You?

Fantastic! We have an example already of what spell checking "Auto-Correct" has done to written communication and grammar. Well I remember the huge argument that word processing would lead us down a path of illiteracy. Nowadays when someone older than 50 corrects someone younger than 30 on...

Re: Online image sales with Smugmug

On that Cosplay themed thing, how might this work: Rather than using the authentic view camera and all that would require, could a modern dslr be contained in something that resembled a view camera, perhaps with the taking lens actually being used. A tethered computer's monitor under the focusing ho...

Re: Online image sales with Smugmug

Oh, before I forget. On the same note... One other idea I've had was to rent a booth area at car shows that allow car owners to drive their car into a large tent with a nice nondescript background and get their portrait taken with their car. Again, people are prequalified by filling out a form and ...

Re: Online image sales with Smugmug

I really hate it that I often sound like the voice of a wet blanket on the flame of exuberance. There are a number of things that I enjoy photographing purely for pleasure or self-fulfillment there are some things out there I could photograph for monetary gain that I won't because they just don't su...

Re: Online image sales with Smugmug

I love your idea about the steampunk camera. I don't know anything about the people who participate in cosplay or comic conventions so I don't know if you have customers. I do know the contraptions they come up with are interesting and there ought to be no shortage of subject matter to photograph. I...
