Huh?


The prom itself was... subpar. I'm not in to rap, personally. Nor maintream rock for that matter. They played 90% rap, 10% crappy rock. Nothing i wanted to dance to or could dance to (the way i dance. :D ). We had dinner at Benihanas, a japanese steakhouse, and the after-party was great. Two members of the group i was in live across the street from each other and are both very good friends of mine. We spent all night going back and forth between the houses. Someone fell asleep and got shaving-creamed. ;) Went to bed at 5 in the AM and was up at 9 for the crew carwash.

All in all, it was a good time. By the way, we went as friends.

its not me but im sure someone has...

most of the working photographers, which I'm no longer one of are worried about were the instant response of digital will kill them....

Some People ordered prom pics just because they had no idea how the ones they shot at home would look. I don't work at photography any more, so I'm not concerned except in passing. Just comment when I see something that looks interesting.

When my daughter went to her prom, my wife wanted to buy the picture from the photographer there, because she couldn't tell how mine were going to look. My daughter would never ever smile for me. Now she wont smile for my son in law who runs the joint. It took a week to get the 20 x 24 of her that hangs on my walls now. So the instant gratification of the prom shot might well hurt them.

So basically what you're saying is that the instant gratification of digital photography is sort of outweighing the professional quality of, well, professional photography?

I don't think i said that but, what i did say is some types of photography were sold because you felt like you needed to be sure you got a pic of a once in a life time thing. Since you can see now that you do have the pic and even pretty much what it looks like. Some of the lesser forms of photograhy my take a hit.

I wouldn't want my brother shooting his digital camera as the only one at my daughters wedding.... I wouldn't want a 20 x 30 enlargement of that shot for instance as a wall hanging, but I dont have a 20 x 30 of my daughter's prom picture. I have a 5x7 an it was a waste of money.

Things like your kids softball team picture most likely will still be shot by a pro, but the pic of him in his uniform most likely wont be. If you see the difference there.

But then we are all guessing. Things are changing rapidly. I just capitulated on pictures that are badly out of balance. 600 years of composition rules have been defeated now. LoL arent we proud. They were rules invented for and by painters just hi jacked for photography. If the taste of the people change, the rules should as well. It's just not something an old fart like me is comfortable with.

Nice!

I'm colorblind and your hair blends in with the painting in the background. It's really kind of hard for me to make it out but I like what I see.

Makes me wish I was young again.
