    My husband (Jim) and I just came home and found HUGE bear tracks in the snow around our house. The bear had knocked down the shepherd's pole that held the bird feeders and opened up our garbage. I took photos of the tracks and the pole which I'll upload after dinner. I THOUGHT BEARS HIBERNATED...

    Mods posting

    I've noticed many instances where mods are posting in a thread which is in the wrong category. For example, there was a thread in the professional gallery that didn't include any images, yet 2 mods posted in it and it remained there for 3 more days before someone finally moved it to the proper...

    80 year old - challenging

    This wonderful woman has Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease. This is probably the last photograph of her that the family will have taken as her health is declining rapidly. She would not look at me. Whenever I would move to get a front view, she'd turn her head away. When she smiled...

    What a RUDE thing to say!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I was talking to someone today and mentioned that I am doing Child Photography. She said, "I thought you didn't have kids?" Confused, I said that I'm shooting other people's kids. She replied with, "well, since you don't have kids of your own, there's no way you should be shooting other people's...

    Large Lag Time Loading Site

    No matter what thread or board in TPF I click on, there is a HUGE lag time lately. The top of the page loads fine up to the User CP bar. Then it just sits there, waiting. Finally, the sponsor ads load and then things are back to normal. It is taking at least 15-20 seconds to fully load a page...

    Spawning Salmon

    The salmon are swimming up the rivers and their colors are changing. With the rapid flopping and jumping, it's quite a challenge to capture a photo of one. Here's my best one from yesterday: Marian

    Flat screen TV vs. Flat screen monitor

    Is there a difference, aside from the connections? I would love to have a larger monitor for my photo work, and we do have a flat screen TV in the bedroom that is hardly used, or should I just bite the bullet and buy a larger monitor?. [/n00b] :blushing:

    Portrait Parties

    Have you heard of these things? They're kind of like tupperware parties. The host invites people, makes snacks, and plays music. The photographer shows up, sets up 1 background and lights and takes pictures of the guests in 15 minute sessions. The host gets a free 8x10 and 10-15% of the total...

    How far do you go?

    When it comes to whitening teeth, how far do you take it? For example, I have this unfortunate set of teeth to deal with in my latest shoot: What is your procedure? I've tried using the dodge tool and I've tried using the color adjust tool, and I just can't get a natural looking white...
