  • Portfolio magazine bites the dust

    My favorite new magazine from the last few years for graphics and biz writing. Boy, did they pick a bad time for a startup. Too bad. Click on the second link for a very cool image that was on the cover a few months ago, done by a fellow by the name of Ji Lee. That's the kind of imagery you would find in there. Too bad.

    Pretty soon there's gonna be nothing left for us to retouch.

      Cool photo, but is it me or are the contact shadows lacking? The edges especially along
      the top of the bull seem a bit funky too.

      Shame about the magazine.

        To illustrate a November 2008 article arguing that credit derivatives were “the elephant in the room” at JPMorgan Chase, the magazine spent what one staff member, who was not authorized to speak publicly, said was $30,000 to procure the services of a real elephant to menace a model at a photo shoot.

        Sounds like seriously dodgy decision making there. Amazing I always think that people haven't realised yet that its not about throwing money at creating quality - finding good creative PEOPLE, and paying them, provided they don't sit on their asses is what it should be about.

          Rumors about other mags too...

          Photo agencies closing too... Katy Barker, ESP, etc...

          Tough year for the industry for sure...

              Dude, don't put down overdone. That means graphics. Otherwise, you have the Economist, which I love and is doing well, but is basically text.

                Looking to build a portfolio
                by LucyHoare
                Hi Everyone,

                I've recently finished a photography degree and decided that I prefer working with photoshop than actually taking photos. Over the last couple of months I've done some work experience in the field of retouching and really enjoyed it so would like to start to build up a portfolio...
