    Yellowstone National Park.....

    Took my father on a photography trip through Yellowstone over Memorial Weekend. Rain and snow with overcast skies 90% of the trip. But the trip was more about spending time with my father, and we had a great time. We came away with some great memories and a handful of keepers. Bull Bison...

    Using generator on location for monolights...

    Anyone here ever use a gas powered generator on location? There are a ton of really remote abandoned barns and houses that I have obtained permission to shoot in/around. They all have roads going right to them. I was thinking about running a generator in the back of my truck and a heavy 100ft...

    When did razor sharp images.....

    become popular? Just some thoughts I have had as of late. My little sister bought me a whole pile of old photography books. Some were old college books, some were portrait shooting tips, but most were just books of photography from TIME and similar sources. Most of these books date from the...

    Get 'em while they are are available. B&H shows them in stock. Mine will be here Thursday. I didn't want to give them my business any more, but sick of chasing this body around only to miss out every time its available elsewhere.

    Farming out the post work...

    Guys, I have worked myself into a bind. I basically have two jobs. One job suddenly requires me to be out of town 26 days a month. I have a pile of senior photos to edit and send to the lab. I am working myself ragged. Has anyone else thought of farming out all the post work. I did a senior...

    Die-Cut wallet print size

    Just a couple questions as I move from sports shooting into portraiture.... What is the common die cut wallet size for senior prints? And as a second question, what have you been putting in the lower corner this year? Seems to vary by location (geographical), studio, and "fad"...

    Senior 2010...Jessica

    Never before have I had a client that knew exactly what they wanted. She had the location, poses and final print look already in mind. It made for a tough shoot. All of her poses made her look heavy, but once I realized that she was totally self confident and happy with her appearance things...

    85L focus by wire...

    I think I like it. When I first got the lens a couple days ago, I thought it was weird. There are a couple drawbacks but nothing major. And the focus ring feels so sexy! LOL The only thing that I don't like is not being able to retract the lens once removed from the camera. What are your...

    Vintage Custom Cowboy Boots

    So ugly, I think that they are kinda cool. Anyway, any thoughts? I don't like the reflections on the black leather, but am having trouble not getting them. Using 2 alienbees, one bare on background and one with shoot thru white umbrella on camera left (this one is causing the reflections). Any...

    Folks, I am looking at picking up an Epson 3800 printer, and just to cover all my bases here, I have some questions.
