    Smartphone apps

    True, however with significant elevation changes and distances it takes some work to calculate out the time deltas. Add in terrain topography and the challenge begins to require review of topo maps etc. start shooting in mountain ranges and valleys with unique characteristics and it only...

    Smartphone apps

    Thanks... I was recently reading about that app, but theory is different than reality. I assume you have used it and found it works well? I notice in many of the reviews that the authors don't support it well or really support Android. That is a concern as my main smartphone device is a...

    Smartphone apps

    I have begun looking at some smartphone apps related to cloud cover and light timing. The light timings could be very useful to get a better idea of the location and situation before spending hours in the car to find out the lighting is wrong due to the landscape. Anyone have any experience...

    Need PostProcessing Help

    I need some help post processing this image. I use PhotoShop CS2 and LightRoom 2. One of the lights didn't flash and I can fix the subject with some adjustments but can't remember a good technique for the background. This is the pose the mother likes the most. Any help is appreciated.

    Convert Slides to CD

    Definitely thought about doing that but wondered if there was an easier way to do a larger volume.

    Has anyone used any vendors for converting a large number of slides to digital files on a CD?

    engagement photo

    My biggest thought goes along with the copping of the feel on the left side. Probably not the image they want to hang on the wall forever.... Hey, look at dad... he is going to... Other than that I like it. Just an unfortunate example of how things are missed when taking pictures. I took an...

    Precious Feet

    interesting point... thanks for the comments. Do you think it would be better if it was cropped in tighter so the jeans were not visible on the left?

    Precious Feet

    I was hoping to get somebody's two cents about what they liked or that I should have done differently. I find feet shots are always a challenge.

    Precious Feet

    I was taking some photos of a friend kids this weekend. One is 2, the other 8 months. A feet shot is always a challenge, but we really seemed to like how this one came out. What are your thoughts? This crop is an 8x10 aspect, I must admit the 4x6 aspect ratio had a better crop but not the...

    A question about print pricing

    Print quantities are really hit and miss these days. I tend to charge up front and make the prints cheaper on the ala carte plans. I prefer to sell it all as a package. Overall a rule of thumb I was once given is that the prints should never been less than 3x to 4x your cost for a front...

    Wedding photogs: What do you wear to client meetings?

    Think of it this way... You are selling the package including yourself. It is all marketing. So dress according to the profit you want to make and the amount you charge. Nobody will pay top dollar for what they feel is a substandard product. At the same time don't go over the top because...

    15 month old BW C&C Please

    much better. I would prefer a slight bit more of the top chopped off, however then that would bring in the right side and lose some of the effect. That is probably about the best the balance of the two will get. Definitely much better as my attention is much easier on the girl. I like it!
