Re: Monte Zucker loses battle with pancreatic cancer

I had the privilege of attending a Monte workshop on advanced portraiture (Toronto, 1994 I think). He was a marvelous teacher, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and patient. His teachings have greatly...

Re: 100% Brand new, Lighting for a motorcycle shoot, question.

You might find it easier to control your lighting if you turn the shop lights off. Also black out any windows and other sources of light. You will of course need to leave the modelling lights on the...

Re: Model Information Sheet

I designed my own model information form about 10 years ago using CorelDraw. At the time, I'd never heard of any other photographers doing anything like that.

Re: Tough run of bad luck in Oklahoma

Most large cities have colleges & universities and with them come students looking to earn some extra cash. I've never tried this so I can't guarantee it will work, but I've thought of trying it...

Re: 100% Brand new, Lighting for a motorcycle shoot, question.

I'm not exactly sure what your setup was from how you described it but based on what did work, it seems obvious that your flashes (or at least one of them if they aren't identical models) has a built...

Re: lens compression or FOV?

For 35mm film photography most photographers preferred an 85mm lens for 2 reasons. First, it allows a longer working distance. It keeps you outside the subject's 'comfort zone' which creates a more...

Re: Good glam, bad glam?

A better question is: What is it that makes a good photo?

If you ever find the answer to that, please publish it. Everybody wants to know!

Re: film selection

My preference is the pro transparency film Fuji Provia 100 (RDP) both indoors & out. I like it because of it's fine grain, high acutance, neutral color and medium speed. I've also used a lot of...

Re: Mystery books/movies with photographer as main character

The movie 'Girl With A Pearl Earring' is about the Dutch Renaisance painter Johannes Vermeer (not about photography). But there are several scenes in it about 'seeing light' that most photographers...

Re: Mystery books/movies with photographer as main character

Probably not quite what you're looking for: 'The Picture of Dorian Gray'.

'Snapshots', a Dutch movie from 2002.

'Amélie', a French movie from 2001, starring Audrey Tautou - it goes by several...

Re: More Soft Experiments

First thing I noticed was that the eyes are not sharp. However, the Tshirt, arms and top of the chair are sharp. Using that type of vignetter, which also softens the image, you need to keep the main...

Re: Advise on Travel Tripod

At home, I prefer the Manfrotto #055 (I'm not sure what the Bogen part # is). I often switch to the Manfrotto #190 when I need something lighter. The main advantage of the larger tripod is that it...

Re: My first tear sheet is on news stands today!

Congratulations. That's a very nice tear to put in your book. I suggest you buy several virgin copies of the magazine and file them away for future use.

Re: A soft experiment ...

I get pretty much the same soft focus effect as on Hailey by using a #2 H&H Diffusion filter.

I have also used both the #1 & #2 on older male subjects to soften out the age lines. The #1 is so...

Re: Lens Question

I suggest something in the range of 20-70mm for most model photography. Seldom would you need to go outside that range. Personally, I use a Canon 28-85 and I can't recall the last time I needed...
