    Critique my website.

    My last name is Cox. When you read "Cox photography" It doesn't look bad, but when you hear it spoken it sounds like some kind of weird gay porn business.

    Critique my website.

    I am going to be launching my small photography business within the next few months, and am in the process of creating my website. Right now there is not much on there, and I will be adding my portfolio soon, but for right now I would appreciate some feedback as to what you guys think needs...

    Mirror self portrait in nature

    I was using one flash pointing towards me. Now, when you say "on the mirror side" you mean you think I should have pointed the flash towards the mirror? Or what? Also, looking back, I wish I would have jelled the flash warmer to equal the light of the sunset.

    Mirror self portrait in nature

    I am working on developing a website for my new photography business and wanted to take a self portrait of myself with my camera to put on the homepage. This was my idea, but I'm not as happy with it as I thought I was going to be, especially with the green shirt against the green background. I...

    Thanks for the input everybody. I know I'm not the greatest photographer yet, but all the feedback is really helpful!

    My Sister's Senior Photos

    Thanks for the input. Not sure if it's just my monitor or what, but her skin looks really bright to me in your edit. However, looking back at the original, I do agree that it could use a little lightening. I don't think the necklace is super important, but I did ask about it and she said she's...

    My Sister's Senior Photos

    My sister asked me to take her senior photos last month. It was my first time and I kinda wanted to use the experience as a practice try. I'm including three of my personal favorites and would appreciate any pointers and suggestions for the next time I try this. Thanks. 1. 2. 3.

    Choosing, editing, and Delivering Client Photos

    Hi, I am going to open my own photography business in the near future, and have done four or five shoots for free recently to start off my portfolio (Free only because I don't have a business license yet) Because of the large military presence in the city I live in, the population is the...

    Nikkor 70-200mm f/4 or 85mm f/1.4 prime

    Towards the end of this year I am going to be starting a photography business dealing mostly with outdoor family photos. I currently own a D800 body and a phenomenal 16-35mm lens, a very good 50mm prime, and a somewhat cheap telephoto zoom. For a long time I've been seriously considering...

    Business domain name decision

    I am getting ready to start my business soon, and am debating on whether I want to tack on the word "photography" or "Photo" at the end of my domain name. Right now I am probably not going to include either (in the interest of a shorter, more concise domain that's easy to remember.) I don't...

    Weatherproof side camera

    Yes, I didn't mention this earlier, but video capabilities are important to me as well. I took a quick look at the Panasonic TS-5, which I liked. Can you tell me what makes the Nikon a better choice than the Panasonic? If it is just because of the price difference I will probably go with the...

    Weatherproof side camera

    Hello all, I currently own a Nikon D800 and D40, both of which I a very happy with. The problem is that I don't always want to lug around a DSLR everywhere I go. Also, I love deep woods backpacking, kayaking in the ocean, mudding, and pretty much every other type of recreational activity you...

    Critique on my logo design

    I will think about using a professional graphic designer for my logo. Any suggestions for good ones to go with? I looked at a couple fonts to use, but really didn't find one that portrays the feeling I wanted it to, so I just went with very simple font. Admittedly, I didn't look very hard...

    Critique on my logo design

    Thanks for the input. I completely agree, there is nothing special about this logo as of yet. That is why I'm asking for help here :) I will not be doing any weddings in the near future, however I am not opposed to moving into that field eventually, as I mature as a photographer. For now I...

    Critique on my logo design

    I am planning on starting a small business towards the end of the year, and am currently trying to come up with a logo for my business. The business name will be Wallace Photo. I have come up with several ideas so far. This is the one I seem to like the best and will probably be going with...
