Re: An Old Press Photog's Trick for Always Keeping a Protective Rear Cap on Every Lens

To me, that just seems so impractical. I can see (maybe) two short lenses together, but when it comes to longer lenses... How do you carry it? The only way I can see it working is if you have the double ended cap on the lens you're carrying with the open cap ready to receive the in-use lens. But car...

Re: Flavor at every level

A fabulous job! You did the styling yourself I take it? How did you manage to keep everything fresh looking over the course of the long build? It looks as fresh as if you just tossed it all in the air and shot before it came down. :thumbup: Amazing what a spritz of water can do to liven up an image...

Re: Happy Fourth of July - (add an image of yours to the thread)

Each year our neighbor hosts a picnic and I, of course, document the festivities. While this year was bittersweet (she lost her mother earlier in the year to cancer) it did not stop people from enjoying the day. At one point one of the party goers decided to take a trip down the poolside slide and I...

Re: An Experiment in Red

The wonderful thing about photography forums is the exposure to inspirational images created by peers. This one is up there in inspiration as it has so many properties that keep the viewer engaged; subject, composition, color... Oh, the color. That's what ties the whole image together. Previous sent...

Re: Chemo: all done

Sounds good. Sept or Oct might be the best time and I might be freer to move around. Also, there are fewer tourists and you can make a left turn. Unfortunately, we won't be able to house anyone. I can research some places. There are two B&Bs near us. This would be fun. Can you do the organizing? Ma...

Multiplicity Challenge - post your multiple composites here

Multiplicity images, or multiple composite images are those where you take a subject and place them in multiple locations within a scene. Sometimes they are sequential, other times they are collaborative in telling a story. Overall, they are both fun and challenging, offering the artist a multidisci...

Re: Chemo: all done

Wonderful news. So glad to hear everything is going well. I'll still keep the prayers and positive thoughts flowing in your direction just for good measure. :thumbup: Thanks Duck. I am still hopeful that we might stop by for a quick hello on our way to the Cape; plans are unclear at the moment but ...
