    Maternity - for business card

    Hi, Seneca -- nice shot for your card! I've done five pregnancy shoots over the past two years & one missed opportunity (she delivered before we could set a time). A maternity shoot may not be for everyone (the mom or the photographer!), but the women I worked with were enjoying it to the...

    Art event

    Hi, Kelly -- Nice series. I think you captured the occasion very well. One thing I like about the use of existing light (no flash) are the occasional color casts in the environment from the various lighting temperatures. It works nicely here & in no way distracts from the correctly exposed &...

    Can't stop receiving mail returned emails...

    Oh-oh! Somewhere in those 13k+ messages is one from me I sent this morning. I'll TTYL about it and not expect an answer! You possibly have been 'spoofed' by the bad guys and the 'reply-to' or 'sent-by' address in the (probable) un-delivered spam email was *your* email address. Or, it...

    Hi, Drew -- My hope is you're only taking a break from portraiture, as yours were posts that were always interesting, i.e., "How did he do that?" I'd wondered what happened to you and if, perhaps, you'd been run off or something... Nice waterfall! Best Regards,

    my 9 y/o angel

    Hi, Drew -- these are excellent portraits of your daughter. She must have had a lot of fun working with her dad to create these... I'm saddened by the comments implying there is something more to these images than there is. It is a sad commentary that our society attempts to see something...

    Home servers for photo storage?

    Hi, Gretchen -- Microsoft has some 'unsupported' freebies called 'Powertoys for Windows XP' (there were/are versions for other operating systems, so make sure you have the XP version). One of these is a program called 'Tweak UI' which lets you easily change some obscure Windows settings...

    Another Pinup

    Yes, that's the post, Joe. Reading on, I copied down your recipe for the "Paint with Light" layer. I've been doing my dodge-n-burn layer that way for years, but with 'Overlay' blending. Gotta try it with 'Soft Light' as you suggest and see how I like it! Thanks for the great tips! Best...
