Aluminum prints.

My wife and I went to an arts and craft show. Out of over 200 booths the most interesting was a photographer's prints. The print jumped out at the viewer. The depth was magnificent.  Being a photographer I wanted to know what the print was all about. The prints were different sizes.8.5 x 11 up to around 24 x 36. They were framed and looked like glass on top of the print. The photographer told be they were aluminum prints. They have ink jet and die sub printers. Has anyone seen such prints? I…

how to do a new technique

Hi My Shutter Friends.   I would like to do a technique. This is the one that the foreground is larger than the background subject. A large images of a person is in the front.

I have gone through many links its all about the  build quality ,some other feature comparison only..…

It would not be right not to share this link of a insightful interview with a photographer!

Until this point in time I could never place or understand certain things about myself. The rebel inside me! My love for visual art! The list goes on! I used to buy several photography magazines a month from the same retailer. I had my reasons for buying them. As we all do I knew at some point I would have to stop buying so many. The lady was standing behind the counter, she has seen some of my work in the past and as I placed the mags on the counter she snapped at me, but not in a…
