    Need some help.

    Though I'd drop back in and first give another THANK YOU to Ray!!! Here's a quick snapshot of what we did with the image. The family was thrilled and Jamie's wife hugged my neck more than once so Ray... I owe you a hug : ) Thanks again!!!

    Need some help.

    Everyone was THRILLED. I put the pic in the upper left of a 30x20 and left space for everyone to sign and leave messages for the family. It worked perfect !!! Thank you again Ray. I'll post pics from the race this coming weekend along with the poster and family.

    Need some help.

    WOW ... Thanks Ray. I have a local artist that 'was' going to recreate the photo in chalk but after we agreed on a price she never got back with me so I'm not sure what's up. This will be perfect for my needs and I can't thank you enough. Dennis

    Thanks Richard but that's all I have. I appreciate you chiming in and letting me know, I'll see if I can find a painter or a caricature artist. Thanks again, Dennis

    Need some help.

    Next Saturday we are having a race to honor one of our friends who passed away last year. I'm trying to work up a poster/banner that we can hang at our track using a photo of Jamie. I wanted to do a smudge of the picture but the results I've had have been horrible at best. I'm looking for...

    su800 for BB

    I've used the AB triggers and they work great. I had some of the cheap EBAY triggers and they were hit and miss.

    Flashing football again

    Flashing is definitely a pain but sometimes it's necessary when lights cycle so bad that 4 pics in a row are all different colors... Ug. You should be able to sync at 320 which helps a little with the ghosting. I did an experiment last year where I did auto iso, 2.8 and 320 and put an old...

    Next in line: High School Seniors

    Find a local model or two and let them be your 'teen'. Do the shoot and start spamming the local school pages on facebook. Offer up some cheap shoots for the first 5 or so and sit back and wait. Unfortunately this is probably the worst time of year to look for seniors but you could get...

    Looking for lab to do school photos

    Don't get me wrong, you can make a ton of money doing school pictures. The parents are almost required to purchase something even if it's the smallest package. Don't post them on-line, no one will buy them. Also, when annual time rolls around you will need to provide the school with all...

    Looking for lab to do school photos

    Backup cameras, maybe two, is the first thing you need and then a backup short lens. 2 or 3 strobes and umbrellas. Don't worry about soft boxes for this. Oh yea, and backup strobes plus sandbags, stools, extension cords, light stands, gaffer tape, background, background stands, background...

    Tax Question

    Thanks Mike. I guess they are gonna' get their share no matter what. The odd thing is, that you can't deduct depreciation/expenses if it's a hobby but you HAVE to pay taxes for income. Looking at it like that, it might just be easier for me to keep my corp. alive until the IRS shuts me down...

    Tax Question

    I'm in the process of shutting down my photo business and will just be shooting as a hobby/fun. Is there a limit of how much money I can make and not have to report it as income? I'm currently making nothing so it may not be a problem :frown: but I still shoot and don't plan on giving away...

    A little junior college basketball

    I'm guessing your friend is #15. FWIW: They are all of her back or side. Move to behind the basket and your pics will improve quite a bit.

    Questions for the SCGM folks...

    Thanks folks. I used the demo of PM to work with the files SC sent for exif info. Went through an older code repl. file I had from before they were a pay site (forgot I had it) and yea, PM is almost an essential for captioning. I did practice captions for about 20 pics in about that many...

    Questions for the SCGM folks...

    Do you transmit at halftime or wait until you get home? DO they get you parking passes? How long do you normally have to wait to get a credential? Are you using PhotoMechanic for captioning? How many captioned pics do you normally send in from a game? One more, IF using PM, where do you get...

    Kodachrome. Show Us!!!

    Well apparently it's Kodak that's stopping making chemicals for K14 processing. I think Dwayne's would love to keep processing Kodachrome. At 700 rolls a day @ $10 a roll that's a significant hit to a small business. Maybe someone else will start making the chemicals... never know. I may...

    I'm really liking Ektar

    Have some EKTAR in my basket at B&H but was hesitant to purchase. Thanks for the samples. Would love to see some reds and faces if you have any. Thanks again, Dennis

    Mine as well. Plan on doing some ordering, after the Christmas Money Grab, and get some prints for my office.

    You know you had a bad year when you can't even find ONE picture worthy of a "Best Of" thread... *sigh* Really great shots so far, keep'em coming. Dennis

    Sharp Dressed Man

    You can do quite a bit of cool stuff with a simple grey or black background. This is a black paper background with a red and blue gel on the background.

    My last Red Wings game for 2010

    I could never shoot hockey because I wouldn't know how to caption the pics: "Joe Smith hits the round flat ball with his club but Al Jones was there to grab it before it went in the goal thing. Joe Smith then proceeded to knock the hell out of Al for grabbing the ball" Good stuff as...

    Sharp Dressed Man

    Color and lighting look better but it looks like he's pretty close to the background. Definitely getting better. Like me, you need to work on posing. This would have been nice if he was standing with one hand in his pocket and another on a rail or something. Advise: Go to the bookstore...

    New magazine I shot for this year.

    Wasn't sure about these guys but they did a good job and made a nice publication. Hope to do some more work for them in the future... You can click The Magazine to get the PDF version. Give it a look if you have a few minutes:

    NCAA WVB: CSULB vs. Seattle

    I like #3 but your copyright kinda' kills the photos, especially in #4.

    Thanksgiving Day Football

    Looks good to me. Maybe a little tighter on a couple to help out with the backgrounds but beside that, the action is good and the exposure is good. Drop that 70-200 down to 2.8 and that will help with the backgrounds a little. Nice work. Dennis

    What was your first Camera (vintage stuff)

    +1. Still have the Olympics lens cap for the 50 1.8 that was included in the kit.

    NASCAR Sprint Cup Champs

    Used to be a BIG Nascar fan but gave up watching about five years ago. Nice shot of the #18 up in flames even if it is from across the track. Last Nascar race I went to I got a shot of Kyle Petty on a moped... I'll have to dig that up. Good stuff, Dennis

    All-Japan Open Karate Tournament.

    Looks like you had some tough lighting. #2 is the winner here.

    Look good. My eyes go straight to the Copyright text though and kind of take away from the images. Love #3.

    About a month ago I was shooting some PW football in town. During one of the plays, a defensive player speared the QB from the other team, helmet to helmet. The QB was knocked out and was taken to the hospital with a concussion. The father of the QB was outraged and made quite a scene at the...

    A few old ones...

    Thanks folks. I'll have to go find the original because I'm thinking the color version was better.
