Re: Filter forge 4

As a photographer I have never found any value in filters such as these. As a graphic artist, on the other hand, they offer unique possibilities for all kinds of uses.

Re: Swamp - Spring Knees

Behind my house, growing up, ran a brook from the reservoir to the river. It was my playground and my little sanctuary of solitude. It was also the catalyst that made me want to get a camera, just for the sole purpose of recording the wonder I found whenever I was in the woods. I never quite got to ...

Re: Walk 20 Paces, Turn, and Fire

Ernst-Ulrich Schafer just posted a link to a video interview of photographer, Jerry Uelsmann, who does image manipulation in the darkroom (think analog photoshop). I haven't made my whole way through the video but at 2:30 there is a nice quote that pertains to you, Minnie. When asked about his choic...

Re: New Years Day

I can definitely see the influence in your work. Specially in the chairs and in the ferry series.

Re: Audbree

I agree with Minnie, but then I have a fondness for B&W work to begin with. You post very distinct B&W images here but do you find that customers are looking for more traditional color work when they come to you or are they looking for your B&W's? Personally, I would love a B&W portr...

Re: Walk 20 Paces, Turn, and Fire

...There are millions of wonderfully detailed pictures of egrets and herons out there, but the ugly dam environment is the thing that makes the series different. That's not how I see it. Your compositions and use of light is what really pulls it all together. The setting is unique and really grabs ...

Re: Walk 20 Paces, Turn, and Fire

...But then I've been told it's hopeless, too. STOP! Don't listen to them! In all seriousness. If there is one thing most successful photographers will adhere to is that it is about understanding the principles of photography above all else then about knowing your equipment, both its faults and its...

Re: Site featuring famous photographers

The nice thing about having that kind of content is that it appeals to the Id. The bad thing about that kind of content is that it requires work to research and write about those topics. Not something the Id wants to do... :thumbdown:

Re: Walk 20 Paces, Turn, and Fire

I have been at this crossroad before. Client likes my work and requests something my equipment can't handle. I upgrade and continue until the next request comes along I can't meet because of some limitation. I've done it twice. There is the old proverb, "don't put the cart before the horse.&quo...

Re: Has to be in the TOP 10 of photography vids

...Liked those two articles so much that when I first read them I converted them to pdf files and they are in my permanent photography reference library! Really well done articles. I am glad they were of use. I'm honored by the keepsake. I've always wanted to do a lecture with my photo group inside...
