  • No offense taken! Believe me, I'm a total amateur and have TONS to learn yet. I don't take myself too seriously....

    If you'd like to see other pics, check out my gallery. I have several of my cats in there, including some of the feral colony my husband and I care for.

  • Good suggestions, all--thanks!!

    Like I said, I'm hoping to donate my portraits from the feral cats series (see the gallery) to Alley Cat Allies or a rescue organization.....but hey, selling some of my own wouldn't hurt a bit!

    I truly do appreciate the honest feedback. ...

    Crosspost--do you all sell "art prints"??

    I have some of what I think are nice portraits of cats...both my own and the ferals in a colony for which we care. I'm working on donating the feral portraits to Alley Cat Allies or someplace like that, but I'd like to sell the others if anyone would think there'd be a market for them.

    Have you ever sold (or donated) "Art Prints"

    I have a series of feral cat portraits that I'd like to donate to Alley Cat Allies or some such organization.....and then I have some portraits that I'd like to print/mat/frame/sell.

    So tell me, is there any interest as far as you know? Would you be interested in prints of cats and kittens...

    We got the Nikon Coolpix 5700. It's a sweetie, lemme tell you!

    I never use flash on animals if it can be avoided because of the reflection problems....with this one, I used a tripod set up right by my window and took with a reasonable shutter speed on digital equivalent ISO 100 film....

    Nikon Coolpix 5700

    We got a new digital camera, and I LOVE it!!!

    I posted a photo from our first go-round with it....check it out in the gallery or by clicking below. I really like it; in fact, I'm considering entering it in some photography contests......

    Opinions welcomed!

  • HORRENDOUS photo manipulation advice - does it just make you cringe?

    I frequent many other forums (although they're not nearly as good as this one, sometimes I pick up a nugget or two of good stuff). The problem is that I see so very much HORRENDOUS advice being doled out by casual users who don't take the time to think about what they're saying.

    In a...

    Very nicely done--your hand colorings are super nice, so I'm sure we'll all benefit from seeing how you do it

  • Truthfully, gang, you could call me Geekhead, and as long as I could come for fun dialogue and an honest critique, I'd come back again and again!!!

    You'll find that I'm not especially thin-skinned......being the youngest of seven children makes you pretty impervious to anything ...

  • Yup, it's Gina--but don't worry. Even my mom calls me by the wrong name sometimes!!

    Thank you all for your great suggestions. I'll try that reverse fill-flash technique. I'm a huge fan of Katrin Eismann (what retoucher wouldn't be?) and have found many of her techniques useful in and...

  • Critique me, please-hit me with your best shot :)

    See attached picture. In general, I'm pretty happy with it, but have some concern about the boy's clothes blowing out a bit. I've done some selective dodging/burning to help with problem areas, but am not happy with the results.

    FYI: This client specifically requested that the picture...

  • Wow, thanks for the compliment!!!

    If I knew how to make a blushing smiley, I would! My technique is a compilation of various tips I've picked up from none other than the Photo-based Art forum. I'll head over and see if I can contribute anything of value there

    Thanks...

    Posting Gallery Images - It's easy!

    The uploading worked like a charm, and I now have pictures on display in the gallery. It's quite exciting! And I can tell it might become habit-forming.

    Now maybe I should post my results in some of the challenges......I just never get around to it

    I do appreciate...

    Doug--

    I haven't used them, although I have some friends who do. They print beautiful black and white images. Better than beautiful.

    The only catch is that you have to have a dedicated printer, because you must first completely flush out all the previous ink.
