    Thanks for the words everyone. It’s complicated to really try and clarify. The way it looks is that if a judge grants her request, I’ll have to find a way to pay $2,000 within 48 hour, and the remaining $10,000 within 30 days or have a warrant placed. That’s a lot of money that I […]

    It’s true. I’ve learned a lot here, & I have enjoyed being at this table (metaphorically speaking) with people who have the same passion for this that I do. You’ve helped me to grow as a photographer and an artist. However, Things have gone into a rapid decline here where I am. Ugly court situations […]

    I thought it was pretty easy to get into. Simple, informative, & the photos were very helpful. Simple solutions & (so far) great results.

    Yeah, actually it is.

    I went through an DIY e-book on home studio lighting a couple of months ago. We should compare…

    Hey everyone. I’m back. Forgive my absence, it’s been….difficult. Sparing the details, I’ve been doing a lot of different things creatively with my photography. Thought I’d sow the seeds of sharing with you here. I’m not well-off financially. I don’t have a dedicated studio space, I have equipment that I need to upgrade, and as […]

    Tim, since I moved, I’ve been mostly confined to the reaches of my own home, since I now live 8-10 miles out of town. And we only have one car that my fiance uses to go to work in the morning. So I’ve been practicing this extensively. Everything opens up. But not just that, I’ve […]

  • This isn’t a hypothetical think-piece. I’ve got a trade show coming up in three weeks, my first one, & I’m on a bit of a money crunch to find a place to have some of my prints done for it. I’ve been looking for weeks, unsuccessfully, so I’m not procrastinating. I really feel the pressure for it. Any ideas?

  • Excellent anecdote, @tomdinning. I knew you’d catch a hold of that. Don’t worry. I’m a 27 year old who has no problem whatsoever thinking about sex. And my passion for that is as great as my passion for photography. My lady wouldn’t have it any other way. If everyone’s not careful, they’ll get what I’ve […]

  • There are some great answers here. It’s the timeless question. I don’t know that I can possible come up with an answer that is different from what my friends here have added & make a reader nod their head in agreement. For me, it’s this: I DO consider myself a photographer. I practiced and improved […]

    I had a session this past weekend. It was the first chance I’ve had to really stretch my legs and put my camera to good use with the record amount of learning I’ve been doing the past couple of months. I had a couples portrait session with a close friend of mine & her fiance. […]

    As a photographer, I’m accustomed to being behind the camera, & not in front of it. Today I found myself in front of the camera today when Jami & I had out portrait session done with my good friend Amy, a wonderful portrait photographer in her own right. I had my camera with me for […]

  • @tomdinning – you should aim a bit higher with your extortion demands. Make at least a case of chocolate bars.

  • New home (and the backyard that goes with it) 7SouthHDR A seemingly warm and vibrant sunshine (wink, wink) with the cold and bare dormant tree in our back yard. I wanted to make the sun out to be big & bad and strong because it’s how I imagine the sun being when I’m trying to stay […]

    I think I’m really starting to get the technique down. Funny thing is that I didn’t think I’d be able to use any of the shots for HDR, because while I was bracketing three frames per shot, I was shooting handheld. My tripod still hasn’t made the trip yet. And with the sun waning on […]

  • I DO appreciate getting feedback from people here. No concerns about pageviews and kudos, and more focused on having dialogue and feedback over it.

    Still waiting for @tomdinning & our @admin to offer any morsels for my latest contributions to the site. :PP

  • I’m doing that right now too, Tom. I’ve been reading and researching and learning so much more lately, but I’ve also been formulating my own perspectives based on it all, & I’m rebranding myself. I have a big soft spot for raw visual impact. And above everything else, that’s what I want my photography to […]

    There was plenty of it to be sure. It’s almost difficult to avoid it. It looked like a treasure hideaway of jewels and precious stones.
