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

I spent most of the 1980s, 1990s, and into the 2000s with an RB-67 Pro-S in my hands, shooting bridal portraits, weddings, and lots of commercial stuff. With film and processing fairly expensive, I...

Re: When Retouch is Not Ok

I agree with what has been said and will add a little to it. On facial retouching, I do not remove permanent moles or beauty marks. Even on pageant girls. I will remove zits or things of that...

Re: Distracting Background

Re: Should I clean my senser in my 20D ?

One thing that a lot of amateur photographers don't do is keep the cap on the back of a lens when it is off of the camera. I even had a lady who had a studio for several years come to me with blurry...

Re: Need some opinions on Copyright

You mentioned kids. If children are involved, I would definitely not make a big deal out of this. Not only is the judge going to see "naked pictures" and small children on the same page, but any...

Re: Preferred way to convert to black and white?

Remember that you can still use brightness/contrast after using a lot of the other techniques if you still didn't get quite what you wanted. It doesn't matter which route you take, as long as you...
