Cinnamon coffee cake

I'm trying to land a new client who runs a small mail order bakery (rum cakes) down the street from me. It's a husband and wife team. Their website is horrendous and the photos look obviously amateurish (cell phone quality). I wish I knew a good web designer to tackle that aspect of the job, but I'l...

Re: the light falls off

LOL - this capture was created by putting the blossom on a photocopy machine and then covering it with black fabric. The shutter button is the photocopy start button. This is a fair way to use a photo copy machine, but NEVER sit on one, that path to fame is not so smart!!!! If you had asked me to d...

I like how the light falls off when you "photograph" a blossom by using a photocopy machine instead of a camera!

Re: Thoughts of Imogen

Why are you NOT in national galleries?

Non traditional cropping, non traditional framing, yet it works quite well.

Re: 'End of the Innocence'

[...] Success or failure? [...] That is an unfair question because art is subjective. "Art is in the eye of the beholder." "One man's junk is another man's treasure." A better place to start, in my opinion, is to identify the elements you are unsure about and then ask for opinions on those points. ...

Corel Photo Mirage makes motion graphics easy

I have been using Corel products since the early 90's with Corel Draw 2. It's a fantastic vector program and, for me, beats Adobe Illustrator hands down. Adobe Photoshop, on the other hand, tops Corel Paint. Last week I got a promo email for their latest product called Corel Photo Mirage which takes...
