As I start to figure out what's happened, I sort of like the look of SG now -- actually, I will say this: I like it quite a bit -- but I'm concerned that because some people have complained about it, they've been "archived."

If "archived" means what I think it means -- which is that SG keeps using your images even though they've...

Yeah, it's fairly common here. There was lots of bitching about SG getting free content when Member Review started.

The way things are going, I don't think I will be here much longer.

I came partly looking for some general camaderie, partly looking to learn what I could about the style of shooting photos here, and in part to try to hook up with people local to my area, or near enough, who were interested in creating some great images.

Although I've...

Thanks. It's even cooler printed at 16x25 on canvas and framed, hanging in my office!

Flaky wanna-be models? Here? NO. wink

I don't normally play around too much with "special effects" in either Lightroom or Photoshop when I snap an image. I'm not saying that everything that comes out of my camera is presented to viewers as it appeared when it came out of the camera; there may be color corrections needed, or perhaps a minor crop improves the image over what happened when...

In the brief time I've "known" you
I think, I've learned more about photography than in my prior 42 years.
Thank you.
I look forward to my continuing free tutorial smile

Yay! My new Canon TS-E 90 mm tilt-shift has arrived! Now I just have to find the time and subjects to practice using it. I'm hoping tilt-shift isn't going to be as complicated as some people I've talked to have made it sound.

It's supposed to give a new level of creativity by allowing one to change the plane of focus...

I just hope it's as cool a deal as I've been thinking it will be.
stcyr:
it's a great photo - - I'll have to peruse the rest of the photos there soon.

Oh, & I'm really not a huge race fan,
it's just the first Saturday in May
is something we celebrate here.

We really don't have much else.

I was really hoping to get to shoot this weekend, but the rain means I'm unlikely to do any nature shooting. A couple of potentials had contacted me saying they wanted to shoot, but then never got back to me when I asked about their availability -- a common happening, I've found. Maybe one of them will eventually and that will be cool if...

Thanks.

I'm also teaching myself digital painting and I'm going to use that image for my first project.

I'm trying to keep up with things on here even though I'm crazy busy lol, so don't worry you won't be having withdrawls!

Oh and I never replied to you last time when you asked about my tattoo, I just got a new one and it's of song lyrics on my back and I have appointment soon for another. I'm getting a half sleeve of a dream catcher smile

Here's today's image. I'm trying to post every day to showcase my work and maybe convince a few people that I can do a good job as a potential SG shooter.

At some point, unless I draft a new model somehow, I'm going to run out of images to post. But for now I'll try to post something new each...

I'm getting a new tattoo soon but maybe after it heals you can shoot a SG set for me smile
soshootme:
I'm ready when you are! What's the new tattoo? Or is that a surprise which we will have to wait to unveil to the world at a later date?

I'm going to have to find more models if I'm going to keep posting images every day.

Volunteers are most welcome.

This image is another from a recent shoot which was actually done in my office. I really liked the color combination of these shoes on the couch.

Well, actually the shoes were on the model, but the model was on the couch...

Very cool picture!

Thanks! I thought those shoes were great, especially with the black couch and the very slight echo in her tattoo for the color.
