    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 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...

    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

    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...

    Feedback on my website

    Hey, I'm thinking about opening my own photography business in the near future, and created a website that I will use for advertising/marketing. It's pretty plain and simple right now (not to mention free) but I don't mind that because as of right now I am...

    Viva La Vida on my new PVC inventions

    I saw a few lengths of PVC pipe the other day and it gave me this crazy idea. After a trip to Lowe's and several hours of experimenting with different lengths of PVC this is what I came up with. Note, every sound used in this video was created using PVC pipe in some way.

    Website Critique

    I just created a very simple website to advertise my photography services as a hobby. I'm planning on linking to this site on Craigslist and Facebook and some local websites just to get my name out. Eventually I'll spend the cash on a more professional website, but I'm not making any money...

    Sillhouettes on the New River C&C

    This was shot at f/7.1, 1/125 sec, ISO 100 I also just noticed that I did a very poor job cloning out some kind of vertical cable towards the right. Other than that I'd appreciate critiques. Thank.

    My two front teeth C&C

    I did some slight sharpening and brightening on her eyes. I wish her knee wasn't in the shot, but I didn't notice it until it until afterwards. Comments appreciated. [url=]

    Here mom, eat this. C&C

    Took a few pictures the other day of a young boy trying to blow a dandelion, offering it to his mom, and then shoving it in her face :) I'm still working on my photography skills, so I'd appreciate any feedback. 1. 2. 3. 4.

    African game reserve C&C

    I'm currently living in Djibouti, Africa and took they day off a while back to visit a wild game refuge with my friends. It seemed like a good opportunity to work on my photography skills. Let me know what you think, and what I could do better in the future. Thanks.

    I heard the D4 was supposed to be released around February. Obviously, February is now passed. Anyone know anything more specific about when it might be released?

    Is it okay to buy expensive equiptment on Ebay

    It's time for me to get a new camera body. I bought a Nikon D40 five years ago and have outgrown it. Right now I'm leaning towards the D700. I've been looking at different sites to buy used like Adorama, Ebay, and amazon, as well as classifieds like craigslist, or other forum users advertising...

    FX camera and DX lenses

    Over the last month or so I've been seriously considering upgrading to a D3. My biggest reservation right now is that the larger sensor would essentially make my DX lenses obsolete. Of course, I'd probably invest in some new glass to go along with the new camera, but most of the lenses I've...

    Should I drop the money to start a photo business?

    Hi everyone, this is my first post on these forums. I fell in love with photography when I was in high school. I bought a modest Nikon D40, which was the only DSLR I could afford at the time, and accumulated a few lenses and other equipment before I graduated. I would have loved to have...
