Re: Help!

Unless the photo cell has been physically damaged that part should be OK. However there are many other things which have more than likely gone wrong with it. To test it, take it out into good...

Re: I am usually never 100% happy with.

If you ever become 100% happy with your photos, then it wil be time to sell your gear as it will all be over. I've been shooting for well over 50 years and do not believe I have ever looked at one of...

Re: After the shoot...are you ruthless?

Nothing is "safe". Way back in the 1980s I lost 20 years of negs, chromes and prints due to a broken water pipe while I was out of town. Only a couple of years ago I lost about 10 sleeves of medium...

Re: After the shoot...are you ruthless?

I think thre is a difference in mindset, the way we 'see' and shoot, between those of us who learned with film versus those who learned to shoot with digital. I'm not saying one is better than the...

Re: Get arrested for public photography in 12 states...

I have several problems with this. First of all, I can not see how these eavesdropping laws apply to a public location where there is no expectation of privacy. If these report are accurate, then I...

Re: Question for Thought????

Mind blowing. Can you imagine the quality of a 16x20 contact print Literally a life size head and shoulder portrait.

Re: help with posing girls

Back when I was starting out I kept what I called my "idea file". When ever I came across a photo I liked, I tore it out of the magazine and put it into a folder which I would review just before the...

Re: Question for Thought????

I've known guys like that. I usually ask them which model of camera obscura they are using and if they designed and built their own.

Personally I find that attitude to be laughable. I did film...

Re: The Future of Photography Books--Apple's iPad?

No question it is certainly an interesting looking gadget and I would not mind having one. But for a portfolio 'book' I'm not so sure. For one, at the going price I would be more than a little...

Re: Do you think this shot is marketable, and how would I do it?

Another thought, look up a current copy of Photographer's Market. It's published annually and is a listing of photo buyers of all types with where to submit images, how to do so and tips from those...

Re: Do you think this shot is marketable, and how would I do it?

It's a good photo, but unless you have a portfolio full of equally good shots it will be very difficult to market just that single shot. Your best bet might be to identify potential local buyers who...

Re: 20-Photo Tips, Working With Women

Best tip I ever received was to treat the woman in front of your camera in the way you would want some other photographer to treat your wife, girlfriend, mother or sister.

Re: Photography as a Profession: Its Future

True, but I was not really addressing photography as an "art". Instead I was talking about running a day to day business, family portraiture, weddings, etc. The "luxury" I was addressing the decision...

Re: Photography as a Profession: Its Future

Apologies to some here, but I'm afraid I have to agree with Tintype's comments. As some here know I'm an old fart who has been around photography for a very long time and I've heard similar comments...

Re: TFP/CD or pay?

Maybe they do things differently in your area? All I know is certain gigs I had came to mind as I read through this thread again. I shot three models for a magazine cover. One had been modeling for...

Re: TFP/CD or pay?

Actually that is not how the industry works. Models are accepted by agencies every day of the week with absolutely zero experience. They are then given a selection of photographers to choose from and...

Re: TFP/CD or pay?

I find the statement " I've been told by several models that they get paid plus images when they shoot for their portfolios" to be very odd. When I shoot a model "for her portfolio", I'm usually the...

Re: Model Mayhem's Mayhem

Over the years I've spent far too much time on MM, though much less of late. In my own personal view it's not a source for anything real. For me it's simply a place for entertainment. It probably...

Re: A question about “Glamorous” Portraits

It has nothing to do with lowering "standards". Standards have to do with quality not content. Pros shoot what the client wants, only non pros (amateurs) have the privilege of shooting what the...
