Re: My Corner Office

I have to echo everyone's sentiments on this one. The scene is quiet and reflective and that little hint of movement comes across quite clearly. It's definitely warm and inviting but in a respectful way, not somber or intrusive. Kind of like visiting grandma's house while the rest of the family is ...

Re: My Corner Office

Great photo. But...I don't know how you can work in such a small area,I would have my stuff on the floor. :) thanks Mike. This is my weekend home, and I cannot claim such a spartan workstation on a regular basis. My full time home lets me have an entire room for all my photo junk, and I love that b...

Re: The Secrets of Flowers

Considering there is som much activity going on, this presentation works well. Of course with the finer detail of the ants this is not an image you can appreciate on a small scale. It calls to be big. I particularly love how the line of ants are silhouetted along the stem against the light green of...

Re: The Secrets of Flowers

with all the traffic I find this pretty interesting. You might play with white frame within image kind of things if you wanted to highlight the action, but as you have it is plenty cool. The yellows and greens look super good. I like the detail of the old center piece/crown, the spider I could do w...

Thanks Matt. I am still learning about the compromises to be made in close up stuff.

That's up to the eye of the artist and story wanted I think, I will say had you not mentioned the odd fellow up top I would have mistaken him for browned petal edges...I find the image enjoyable as is...

Re: Can we discuss a commercial job?

Gee I wish I could be of more help but we really need folks like Duck for this kind of question, since he has the most experience with product photography. I know nothing about pricing, and am dismal at sales so you wouldn't want my advice. What I would appreciate if I were the business owners is so...

The Secrets of Flowers

What the heck is going on here? I was trying a side angle to these black eyed susans, which were rattier than most I've seen for so early in the season. I spotted the odd fellow on top and sought to include him in some degree of sharpness while still getting the flower. Of course, with my not-so-gre...
