Re: My new challenge: shooting in manual only.

The best advice I give my students is to take advantage of the fact that digital film is free. Spend some time doing nothing but playing with one setting at a time. Use the ability to chimp a photo to get a feel for how the camera behaves. Don't worry about subject, composition, framing, rule of thi...

Re: Wild flower 2 Ways

I hear three ways is more fun. I wouldn't know. I'll leave that for the younger generation. :lol:

It sars Ed harris as famous photographer Ben Ryder, who is dying from cancer, and requested his estranged son (Jason Sudeikis) drive him to the lab in Kansas to develop some lost forgotten rolls of K...

Re: how to change the world

"Change the world, one act of random kindness at a time." Great quote by a great actor. My favorite quote is still the one I use myself all the time; "If you didn't learn something new today, you wasted the day." No one has the potential to love you more than you love yourself. You don't know your ...

Re: Rorschach #2

Well, the rules are fairly simple... an obscure part of a photo is shown and people guess. If too much time passes (1-2 days) a new image clue is posted by showing a little more or some other part of the item until someone guesses correct. The person who 'wins' by guessing correct then has to post t...

Re: Shovels

No problem. Suggestions are just that. You take what works, leave the rest. If nothing, someone else sees this and get ideas of their own. It's all about the process, right? ;)

Re: Shovels

It is a cute image and has a lot of potential for being a stunning candid portrait. For me, though, the shadow of he man's shoulder and that of the girl's hair run parallel to each other. Coupled with the similarity of tones and the back of the little girl's hair gets lost. Perhaps dodging the top o...

Re: Rorschach #2

I like this game. I think we should invent a challenge about it. Take pictures that others have to guess what they are. Not to name names, but there are iterations of this game on other photo forums. I've always enjoyed playing them and thought it might be fun to do so here. I even like the name "P...
