A Photo shoot Everyone should Do

I was asked to take some pictures of several senior citizens on a volunteer basis. The "guests" at the residence were all in various phases of dementia. One hundred and twenty two photos later and several hours of processing, they are now ready to go back to their families. Without a doubt, this shoot was one of my most heart breaking but at the same time unforgettable experiences I have ever had as a photographer. To my fellow photographers, if you don't believe that the eyes are the…

Post Processing in Photo Editing Software - Acceptable or Not?

It seems that there are some photographers who have an intense dislike for post shot editing, to the point where they have no appreciation of the finished image.

That's fine, everyone is entitled to an opinion. But it annoys me when the anti-post processing faction get strident about it and have no time at all for those who do post process. Do they realise though, that post processing has always been a part of producing a great image?

Of course, modern digital images and…

Seeking Artistic Critiques

I'd like to share with everyone my latest project. The project is called Sight Unseen and features original photography, graphic design, and writing. The project is inspired by on-going political, social, and economic here in the US but I think the project can speak to anyone around the world. I know PS has a lot of great artists roaming around and I would love to hear their critical comments and thoughts on the project. If you're interested you can follow the link below to discover the…

What is your Oeuvre?

If you don't know what oeuvre is I would suggest looking it up. Someone once told me that the mark of a master photographer is having a large collection of high quality images within a given genre. Well I have that in several genre's and looking to fill a few more in the near future. No brag just fact - about 40,000 images of Venice, Italy as one example.

If you have a collection of images of one subject, is that collection noteworthy? What I mean is, do each of these images stand the…

Adding a Profile Image to PictureSocial

Its been a few weeks since I've joined in PictureSocial to share some photos and enjoy those posted by others.  I'm getting used to the various things that one needs to know with every new group so it's mostly going well.  The one exception is the profile image.   I've tried to upload my profile image more times than I care to count.  I have used the existing image on my hard drive, the same image on OneDrive, exported smaller versions, bigger versions, added metadata, stripped meta data and…

Epson 4900 Print Head Problems

As a photographer, I have always thought of Epson printers as being top of the line. That is until I purchased their pro model 4900 wide bodied printer. On paper it had everything a photographer could ask for. High dynamic range inks, wide body and of course Epson's reputation. From almost the day I got it, I started having problems with the print head clogging. When you pay almost $3000 for the hardware and over $1000 for a set of ink cartridges, you certainly do not expect these kind of…
