Source of inspiration for food photographers

For those of us who are keen on food photography, work of Lou Manna, famous NY photographer, is the great source of inspiration without doubt.On his website you'll find two galleries with fantastic colorful food images (great lighting and closeup!), as well as a blog where he gives some useful advices with illustrations.And although in my work I prefer not to use glycerin and Elmer's glue (but you know unfortunately I'm notLou Manna yet :-( ), the idea to use a metal skewers heated over... continue reading

My photo of a dress is in use on a website!

Today it was the first time I saw one of my photos in use on a website. That is such a great feeling. The people who bought it, where so kind to write a comment to me on where they planned to use the photo.It took them some time to finalize their website. And now I took a look at their nice new website. If you like to have a look, you can find my photo on the following page: wish all clients would leave this type of info :-)It is this photo... continue reading

My New Website

After a lot of years and patience, I finally launched a website for my photography profession. Believe it or not... it still doesn't have a gallery. Lol. The problem is the time taken up by daily uploads doesn't leave me with any time for sorting or creating links from my gallery to DT images. Bur the basic conception of the site was a huge problem, its not the designing that really delayed it for so long.I held my first analog SLR camera approximately in Jan 2005 which I had to sell immediately... continue reading

My website

I ran into blogs or forum posts of photographers that opened their own website all the time, lately.So I thought "yea, why not, after all?" and here I am, buying a domain and hosting package at bluehost dot com.The result is right HERE.I haven't finished it yet, but it is something to look at, a bit of everything - just to give a general flavour about the look of the website.Comments / critics are welcome.Thanks,Catalin. continue reading

Be wary of Facebook...

You probably heard about it already, but just in case...On Feb. 4th, Facebook changed their terms of service (without telling anyone, because their terms of service give them the right to do so).Basically, the biggest change is that whatever content is uploaded to Facebook belongs to them FOREVER, and that remains true even if the person that posted the content leaves the site.Needless to say, that means that any image you upload on Facebook becomes theirs to sell and use as they wish.... continue reading

Create your own website for free - part 1

A website is an important way for a photographer to become known and to display his or her portfolio, but paying for website design and maintenance a website can be expensive.And although there are several free hosting options available, most of them put very ANNOYING advertising on your website or just don't look professional.(I'm thinking of Bravenet, FreeWebs, Yahoo GeoCities, or WebSpawner).My two favorite free hosting options are:1. Google Page Creator (but they are no longer... continue reading

Giving it all away...

Sometimes the contradictions of the modern world startle me, and this is especially true when it comes to social websites like Facebook and MySpace (and, to a lesser extent, Flickr).Quite why some people feel the urge to tell the whole planet minute details of their lives is beyond me, especially considering that in general these people would not tell those details to total strangers in public.But here we are, people give out information that in general is considered as "top secret", and... continue reading
