Ok, I was able to see Bill St Clair's pics (for better or worse) but the original ones that started this thread are all gone?!?


Yes. SOrry about that. I moved and lost the host site that they were on. I'm working on fixing that now.

Ok, all of the links SHOULD be fixed now.  If they aren't, let me know.  I might've missed one.

I'll try to upload some NHRA shots soon, too.

A turned cherry bowl

And no, I didn't make it.  I just took the picture.

And, as promised, John Force.


For those wanting to look at my earlier postings, I must apologize.  I moved them to a new photoblog site so that you could see them.  That site has since gone tits up so I'll have to move them again and update the links.  Sorry.

Thunder, you are easily good enough to be a pro! I look forward to seeing any photos you ever post.

What a way to make a guy blush!

Thank you for saying so, Claire.  The hard part I have is figuring out how to conduct business in this field.  I don't have much of a business oriented mind.

I also want to learn more about the technical aspects of photography.  I'm currently debating how to go about learning more.  There's a correspondence course I could take for about $700 or I could take a multitude of classes at the local community college that would cost several grand.  Both should teach me more than I know now. Deciding what is best in the long run and will teach me the most is the hard part.

I will say that if anyone on TCF needs any professional studio shots of anything (be it themselves or a product of their labors), I'm more than willing to do what I can for them.

Thunder - a quick tech question - what were you using  as a light source to illuminate the
left side of the bowl?

Learning about the business: Best Business Practices for Photographers. I'm told it's the best of the best.

Looking to learn about lighting: Lighting 101. Once you've read all that, there's the Dean Collins DVDs, but they're hundreds of $$, so read the free stuff first. The discussion group on flickr is pretty good too, but the signal to noise ratio sometimes gets out of hand.

I already have a few of Dean Collins' (May he rest in peace) videos.  Unfortunately, they are on VHS, not DVD.

And thank you for the links.

Here's a link to a shot of a kayak shack on Chincoteague Island.

And, a life preserver.

BTW, the radio station on this little island was doing it's imitation of every other radio station in the country.  However, when it came time to give the traffic report, the announcer said, "And, now for the Chincoteague Island traffic report..."  This was immediately followed by the sound of crickets.   :laugh:

I'd love to make some postcards or notecards and offer them for sale to those that would be interested.  I'm currently researching my options and I'll let you know what I find!
