This is just a quick message to introduce myself and to say how much I enjoy this forum. At present, I am a lurker only. But later, I plan to be a contributor as well.
I am from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. When the summer returns, I plan to hire models, take outdoor shots, and then begin to learn in earnest. Right now, however, this forum is helping me tremendously to understand good photography from not so good photography. I am truly impressed by the quality of the pictures from the pros and equally impressed by the pros’s willingness to assist others in their learning. The caliber of discussion is excellent, truly a professional atmosphere.
I also enjoy reading comments from the models themselves. I particularly enjoyed Malloy’s comments about touching.
this also leads me to another question.....let's say that you're shooting a 16year old girl, with her mother or father present, in swimwear or casual wear for her portfolio....if she had an issue like that.....would you fix it yourself or let her do it
yea, that's what i thought....we are someone's daughter too....treat us with the same respect
Very simple yet direct. She put the whole discussion into sharp focus, didn’t she?
And, of course, I have voted and continue to vote for Holley. I wish her well. http://www.glamour1.com/forums/main-...mate-year.html
Because I am getting so much value from this forum, I ponied up and bought a lifetime membership. I plan to be here a while. So if you see me giving your posts “Thank you,” you now know who I am.
Once again, I just wanted to write a quick introduction and to say how much I enjoy this forum. Thank you everyone for your participation and willingness to help others.
