Too much Photoshop?

A recent article (Too Much Photoshop)detailing how a winning photo had been disqualified because of too much post-editing made me wonder about my own post philosophy.In this shot of a modern building, for example, I decided to create a composite and added a plane over the building to add oomph to the picture. I don't feel any compunction about doing this since the intent was not to deceive but to enhance the image.I suppose for purists, the less retouching the better. And, in some regard,... continue reading

Answer to Peanutroaster...there are vintage cars here too.

My Daughter Now Shoots, Too!

Three weeks ago, in preparation for a skiing trip I switched my Canon Rebel with my eighteen year old daughter’s Lumix G1—I needed something more compact that I can take along with me up and down the slopes and still be able to take some decent enough pictures if not for stock submission.So off she went back to college with the Rebel and Tamron 18-270mm lens.[The long of the short of the snowboarding trip is, one, I wasn't able to take decent photos up the slope. Two and more painfully, I realized that I am too old or perhaps out of shape (or both) to expect to be able to do the things I was able to do in my 30’s, which if I may add, was only about four years ago.

Microstock is an online RPG game? (not too serious)

Again and again I am asking myself why I am kind of addictive to microstocks. My earnings are low, the whole think did not meat my initial expectations, some guru’s keep screaming about lowering earnings and are not advising to start microstock business… . And yet many, many start and find it.. fan.So I thought, what do I still like here? And I came up with thought that it is so much a game! I wait on approvals, watch views, excited about downloads, I work on some skills and get them stronger,... continue reading
