Bilbow...If you get a good one, they rock, don't they? I love my workhorse of a G-2. It's a 4.0 and I can get fabulous large images from it. I've shot with it for three years, almost 4. It can run my powerpack and strobes. It's been everywhere with me and has never failed to get the image no matter ...

hmmm I like the concept, but not the execution. Cool subject and again a good eye to see it buried in the rocks. :!: The photoshopping around the plants at his right legs doesn't work for me and there appears to be a soft area above the left ear. Once again, allowing that compression can really kill...

I wish we could see these as we are posting. Anyway. I like this and the crop shows a good eye. I like the color saturation, too. The only thing is I might slap some more edge sharpening on this one. With the colors so very vi ant, it seems a little soft. Although that Could be the compression for p...

the first image is the best. they seem a tad bit hazy. was that intentional? Yes, I wanted the strong depth of field to add to the feeling..the way memories are soft and unclear sometimes, yet the main thrust always seems to stand out clearly. I also created a bit of 4x5 tilt, shift, and swing, in ...

Thank you. As I said, I don't find these really marketable as a commercial images nor really as fine art. I was making something out of something else and as always studio lighting is fun. Can never have too much fun in the studio. I like the images but I can see where they aren't everyone's cup of ...

My first reaction was that I've seen this before. But I mean that in a good way. So then I started thinking where and what does it remind me of? Degas. It reminds me of a Degas. It reminds me, somehow, of Three Dancers in Violet Tutues that he did in pastel on paper. Only your three dancers look lik...

Well hello there, Emma. Welcome The more the merrier. What is bookarts? The same thing as bookmaking? Do you write stories?

Re: Cameras

I was using a power shot that was fine but had to give it back to the owner.So I've been using my cell phone camera.Any pictures I post on this site were taken with it.My thoughts are that any real camera would make a big difference. Now I'm facing the expense of framing. If get this correctly, you...

Photography Still Life

This is an image I've done just for me, as a reminder to always take risks, but I wonder if anyone else would respond to it. It's a studio shot called Trudy. I'm posting two versions. Do you like them, either both, or none? Does knowing the story make a difference? The woman was born in 1892. The Im...

My first reaction was Awww. It jolted me right off with its meaning. I got it. I saw the gentle stroke of the thumb of the larger hand. I have done that same thumb caress to a child's hand so many times. I immediately saw the caring. The drama of the second piece also immediately caught me and I res...

I like this AND I like the pastels. (I can never seem to make pastels behave) You have a nice dreamy quality to the image. The only thing that seems wonky is the is the light (yellow line) on her left leg. It draws my eye and is some how jarring, and I ended up looking at her bottom as a bottom, rat...

I like this site

Singular...this is really nice. It's pretty and functional... excellent for an art site. I hope you do well with it. Do you have a preferred way to link? I've been looking for a good site where I can interact with other artists and that I can send clients to if they want to interact in an artist com...

Digital. Plus, if the truth be known...I really don't like the dark. It's spooky in there. :shock: I know isn't there a few movies or shows with someone finding something on film and then getting killed and/or maimed in the darkroom? :? There must be movies, but I KNOW things move on the other side...

While my main source of creative expression is Photography, I also paint and draw. I've done a series of artist trading cards with pencil, hot tea, and ashes.

Digital. I prefer digital a thousand times over film. I started with a Minolta back in 1977. Did my own darkroom. Have shot 4x5 for product work. Did make-up for several years and worked with many film photogs, plus TV and film. Got my first digital 1998. A Kodak 2.3 and I've never looked back. I'm ...
