    Should this be moved to the Photojournalism Sports Photog page?

    It's a pity (much so!) that the photos are sooo small. And not spaced, either. Which makes viewing difficult, and I can't really decide IF it actually is "photojournalism"!? It may well be, but I'd really, really appreciate if you could upload a bigger version of your photos AND add spaces and numbers to them.

    But I moved it, all the same, as I feel it is better off in Photojournalism than The Professional Gallery, though they might well be pro pics, but then pro photojournalists have got "their" forum there, too.

    I'll go ahead and space everything out. But that's the biggest file size I can upload from here in Iraq. Bandwidth sucks. There are larger files and more of my stuff on my flickr page.

    Good work Chris. No problems this end recognising you have the goods :) Several of them look quality.

    What's with the haughty, moderation LaFoto (?) Reminds me of a 1960's Carry On film with Hattie Jakes as matron.

    Thanks. I know they are all kinda photojoualisty. But that's what I do for now.
    I'd like to get into weddings when I'm done with the Army.

    Thats what I like about it.
    If you truly want to get into weddings, see if you can assist a wedding photographer to get a field for the business, its much different then what it seems :)

    Oh I know. I rarely use flash in my work, mainly because I don't have one for the new Canon 5DMKII my unit sent me here with.
    I really need to work on that part of my game.

    First of all, let me tell you that if I was not in between addresses and continents, I would set up a little fund raiser and ship you a flash unit. I may be against the war but I support the troops. I wonder if there is someone else here who we can trust, who would handle that...

    As far as making your photos bigger, I'm not sure I get the problem. If they are bigger on Flicker, why don't you embed from Flicker? It might be a stupid question because I'm not a computer guru when it comes to such things :grumpy:

    But I agree that they are too small and that is really too bad. Some of them look very good.

    Chris

    You have opened a window for us to see how another area copes with life. Keep the photos coming if you can.


    ...and thanks for serving the country, while risking your life. :thumbup:
