Title: Please share your own photo web site with us
Post by: climber on March 22, 2014, 05:06:46 AM
I'd like to ask, if those forum members who have their own photography web sites, blogs, FB photo profil or anything else could share that with us.

I don't know for others, but I like to follow photo blogs, web sites, where I can see some good photos, can learn something,...

So, if you have your own blog, web site, please paste a link here.

Thanks ;)

Exactly, it's not hard, just click on "Profile" at the top of the forum and add it to the Website URL box and click "Change Profile".  Now it's linked to the little Globe under your name 8)

Some people have very good reasons for not linking to their work. Some people just don't want to. Some people are camera and gear collectors and aficionados, and they might very well not have any images they'd like to link to, and as far as I am concerned there is nothing wrong with that. Many people primarily shoot their family and friends and don't want those types of images posted on open sites. Many people don't have cohesive bodies of images that they'd like to share, especially if they are mixed in with thousands they wouldn't like to share.

There are many reasons why people don't link to images and galleries, and that is all good with me especially as this is primarily a Canon rumours and gear orientated forum website.

Hi Everyone,

I'm glad I checked in today because I have been updating my site and just launched a birthday special for prints.

I have a lot of travel photography and I'm also a professional artist so you can see a lot of my paintings too if you're interested.
I hope you all will check it out!

Thanks,

I completely understand and I don't link to any of my professional work on this site.  The website and work I link to is my personal stuff (but not family stuff).  I posted the screen shot above because some people may be unaware of how to do it, and I know many members who are shy about their work and don't appreciate the criticism that sometimes comes with sharing it.  I have a friend who is one of the top motorsports photographers in the US and when he had shared his work on the Dpreview forums, the cruel and critical responses have practically reduced him to tears.  I can understand that, too, and while I find CR to be far more positive than other forums (generally), I respect everyone's desire for privacy. 

In my case, I'm not especially proud of my commercial work because of the dull subject matter, and I work with many companies as a consultant so I'm careful about keeping my personal and professional lives very separate.  I like sharing my personal work, even if it's not great, but I respect your and other people's desire to remain private.

That is all true too Mackguyver, and it would have been nice if the thread had been kept to just those happy to post their links, but some posters will never let an opportunity to shout their own agenda go by whilst thinking they can belittle and undermine others.

I ended up skipping the 1DX by the way, I just can't get the 18MP out of my biased head, especially after downloading some 1Dx and 5D MkIII files. But thank you very much for the heads up on the deal.

It sounds like I walked into something personal here, so I'm sorry if I came across as having any desire to make people post their links.  I have the utmost respect for other people's desire to privacy.

Also, I understand on the 18MP, and it turns out that the group buy the other day would have saved me another $160 from the same dealer...

Well, I guess I'm willing to share.  The most recent photos concentrate mostly on Red-tailed Hawks, but there is much more variety if you have the patience to go back quite a ways.  Enjoy (if you can)!

Taking you at your word here.

Architecture, sixth image on top row from left. Is the multiple colour balance on purpose? I work very hard to reduce or eliminate differences in WB like that. Though obviously on other images you use that to very bold effect.

Thanks for checking out the site!  Yeah, that shot was a challenging one - and probably not one of my best.  Well spotted. 

The sky in the background directly across from the camera is blown out.  The red cast you see on the wall of the hallway leading to the left is a reflection from a carpet on the floor.  The blue cast on the seat backs is from the sky coming in through the windows to the right.  It is a tonal mess really.  I need to work on my HDR skills for shots like this.  It really would have improved the shot. 

When I hear myself describing the shot... I wonder if it's worth replacing with a better example of my work :)  Thanks for the comments!  Always appreciated!

The technique I use in difficult multiple WB situations like this is to make a B&W layer and mask out the walls, then add a clipping layer to the B&W layer that introduces colour to taste. The backs of the chairs you can paint out in ACR/LR with a WB adjustment brush.

Version 2 after a bit more playing below that.

I really like the picture of the little girl filled with flash in front of the ship. Good composition and impact.

If it's the one I'm thinking of, that was a scout trip where our troop had the unique privilege of participating in the commissioning of the US Navy Littoral Combat Ship 'USS Fort Worth' on the Texas Coast.  For those of you familiar with the Navy, our troop actually received a PLANK from the commissioning committee for all of our efforts in Arlington/Fort Worth and also there at the ceremony.  We also got a great tour of the ship as the pictures show.  There is a whole group of galleries related to the USS Fort Worth activities.  That's an ongoing deal for our troop.

The little girl in the sailor outfit in front of the ship was actually being shot by a media photog and I caught that shot as I was shooting our scouts sitting nearby.  Low mid morning sun/shade before the heat set in.  The little girl is filled with flash due to the other photog and so this was one of those 'lucky shots'!  Funny how some of the best shots are almost accidents!   :)

If you are interested in wildlife photography in Africa have a peep at www.africaraw.com (http://www.africaraw.com)

We are old age pensioners & have now spent 3-6 months a year in our 4x4 with roof top tent & other accessories digging ourselves out of sand & mud in many wildlife parks all over Africa. We sometimes take a good picture & have discarded thousands in our quest to become good nature photographers. The site has hundreds of photos & also tries to give tips on travel, 4x4 driving i.e. errors we have made, & photography.

 It also includes a blog on wildlife physiology but have not updated this for a year now because of the great deal of work it entailed for a very small readership.

I like your journalistic story telling style with the wider angles, etc.  I see a lot of different venues and lighting challenges both indoor and outdoor.  I consider wedding photography to be one of the hardest jobs in photography.  No second chances and the photographer should be as unseen and unobtrusive as possible but still get the great shots and work miracles.  The intermixed B+W shots are great as well.  I love monochrome but it seems too trendy sometimes the way it is sometimes done these days.  These shots are more realistic IMHO.  In essence, I would hire you to do a wedding if I could.  Great job!!

One question:  I see a lot of other photographers in many of the shots.  Are those shots where you were just a guest or do a lot of your clients hire multiple photographers?

Very nice style. You obviously don't need my critique on your images. I would point out that your packages page doesn't fit optimal marketing techniques, six packages is, generally, considered to be three too many, and there is a lot of marketing analysis behind this.

Creative Live did a superb marketing workshop and the guy who did it, Jared Bauman really understands the wedding photo business. http://www.creativelive.com/catalog/category/photography?page=1&qt=instructors&price=0&sort=1&qd=Jared+Bauman (http://www.creativelive.com/catalog/category/photography?page=1&qt=instructors&price=0&sort=1&qd=Jared+Bauman)

If you don't fancy the video then he has a website too.

Good advice - they teach that in MBA programs as well - I can't remember the exact numbers, but I believe it was Smuckers who did a famous study where they put 4 varieties of jam at one store and 20 at another.  The store with the fewer choices did many times the sales of the numerous choice store and when they watched the hidden camera, they saw something interesting.  At the simple store, people glanced at the shelf and grabbed a jar / jars.  In the complex store, people stood around for several seconds or even minutes debating until they finally gave up trying to choose and left empty-handed because they simply couldn't choose.  Paralysis by analysis.  For photography, I think 3 packages and a simple note that they can be tailored is probably the way to go.

George, I really like the behind the scenes photos in your About page - I haven't see that before and it really gives the customer a really good idea of what you actually do at the wedding.  It gives a human touch to your site, too.  Well done.

I am captivated by your images as I mentioned previously.  However, after I saw the comment above, I went and looked at the About page.  Wonderful!!  You have a beautiful wife, baby and family!  She appears to really rock that camera too!

I find it exciting that you are from another part of the world and yet you have so much in common with many others on this forum.  The camera that you are holding is also held by many of us in CR.  And if not that specific model, another model DSLR being used to achieve fulfilling images.  I think it's really great that we can all enjoy a common hobby/profession/craft and relate to one another so well because of it.  Nice.

Another question:  I see the Gary Fong Lightsphere on your flash but it seems to be used in an odd way.  I see it on the flash but without the top dome.  It's pointed straight up and the flash is also rotated 90 degrees.  What is your technique?  Do you turn the flash down to the side and bounce the flash off of adjacent side walls a lot?  I'm wondering if you have a favorite and proven system with this technique or if it's just a coincidence. 

Again, you do appear to be living the dream with your wife and partner as you enjoy your craft!  I'm very happy for you!

I like to bounce the light off whatever is possible and without top dome it's much easier and quicker to fold it when I don't need it. So I'm just folding it and it stays there in close position and not bothering me to much ;)

Thanks for the clarification.  So, I can see from your images that the light is indeed working for you.  I also have the same collapsible GF Lightsphere model.  I have always assumed that without the dome, the soft-sided part of the sphere would be somewhat useless since there is nothing in front of the flash emmitter to reflect light back into the semi-transparent sphere cone to achieve all-around light coverage.  I can see the advantage of having the dome removed for bouncing off of walls, ceilings, etc but once you are bouncing off a another large surface like that, what purpose does having the soft collapsible cone part of the GF Sphere serve?  Seems like at that point, it just adds weight since the light is projected straight out and away from everything behind the flash emitter.  Please understand that I'm not trying to argue or criticize, I'm genuinely curious.  Since I also own the same gizmo, I just want to understand a possibly better way to use it!  Thanks!    :)

Some people have very good reasons for not linking to their work. Some people just don't want to. Some people are camera and gear collectors and aficionados, and they might very well not have any images they'd like to link to, and as far as I am concerned there is nothing wrong with that. Many people primarily shoot their family and friends and don't want those types of images posted on open sites. Many people don't have cohesive bodies of images that they'd like to share, especially if they are mixed in with thousands they wouldn't like to share.

There are many reasons why people don't link to images and galleries, and that is all good with me especially as this is primarily a Canon rumours and gear orientated forum website.

I don't link my work because it isn't special.  It is good.... but it is derivative of what has come before... good portraiture... good sports... etc... but nothing I really feel proud of... which I hope is simply me being the biggest critic of my own work rather than me actually being incredibly mediocre.

Absolutely agree with you once you collapse it it's just add an extra weight but I prefer to have it always on, to be ready for any changes ;)

Sorry to keep bugging you but... when do you (ever?) use the dome?  Do you keep it with you during the shoot and attach/remove or do you just throw a handkerchief/napkin/bride's veil over it or something?   :D  Me, I've just always left the dome on and shot (almost straight) up at an angle.  (And let the poor flash suffer!)

I like the device.  It seems to work well.  My biggest complaint is the weight.  Wish it was lighter.  Seems like they could have made it with the same material and gone about half as thick with the same result.

Might as well post this. Not like I'll loose anything.

Looking at everyonelse's links I sometimes get jealous of all the opportunities available in other countries to simply pursue a hobby that I love without having to spend a week's wages just to get a 18-55 kit lens fixed.

I'm jusy a hobbyist making do with little to no equipment living in a thrid world country where I earn absolutely nothing from taking pictures except the joy of capturing moments that may never come again. Still, I do my best with what I have with the few opportunities given me to try and learn as much as I can and so... Comments and critiques welcome. :)

My background is skateboard manufacture since 1987 http://www.omnisk8.com.au/  and way before that making surboards since 1975.
Doing skatepark design and construction since about 2006 http://www.sk8scapes.com.au/

Being a keen photographer since the early 80's, I am getting keen to do a lot more photography now in my later years, and would be good to start making some money doing it. Investing a lot of money recently in better gear and equipment to go from printing to framing my work.
My son has just started to learn how to build web sites last year, with a little help from me, but he has far exceeded my expectations now, especially working out how to do the framing options when viewing the images.
We are still building it and adding images, but it's up to a decent standard now to show.

I am using an Samung Galaxy Ace-Duos because i what to use it mostly as a small Telephone.
( Including the avaibility of using 2 SIM-Cards simultaniously.

The Camera is absolutly poor, i bright Light u could take Photo´s to show something technical.
In Lower Light there is a lot of Noise, and in Lowlight the Picture is absolutly black - not only in
really dark Conditions - i´ve don´t measured the amount of Light in such Moments.

More non-salmonid galleries to be added (presently just one each under Alaskana and NE Pacific, Aloha is empty).
BTW my most used lens is the 8-15mm.

Hi Tom,
Just checked out your photos .... all I can say is that's hard core.. !
The water must be freezing ! I see how thick your wet suit is.
I in fact took my wetsuit down to our snow area a few months ago along with my sports housing I use for surf shots. Not sure what I was going to get shots of, as we don't have the salmon run here like you do .. we do have trout ... but anyway I chickened out on going for a dip .... my wetsuit is only a surfing one, 3-2mm I do have gloves, booties and a hood, but not one like yours.
I do have a drysuit made by a guy down here, but have never used it, I swapped it for for some skateboards I make for his kids ..
Anyway, great shots ... ! and that's dedication.

Hi Cary,
Thanks! I wear waders rather than a wetsuit. I try to stay out of the water as much as possible. There is a short blurb near the end of my about page on the site that explains a little of my technique.
