The price of most photographic and digital related books have come down quite dramatically over the last few years but not Amherst. Here's a book illustrated in black & white that most publishers would be doing in colour and selling for between 10 and 15. So it better be worth its 22 price tag. The author, Bob Shepherd has spent more than 20 years as editor, writer, photographer and picture editor. He leads you through the process of learning to think about balance in composition, through colo...
Photo Journalism is not a favourite area of photography for me, so I wouldn't normally be picking this one up in the book shop. As a reviewer though I can appreciate the quality for those of you who find this category interesting. It's up to RotoVision's usual high production values - excellent quality paper, superb repro and clean design. The text is small, so those with less than perfect eyesight may struggle on the finer captions. As is becoming typical from Terry Hope's books the thoroughne...
A paperback A4 sized book that displays the prize winning entries for the World Press Photo 2002 competition (the 46th contest to date). There are outstanding works in here and it's well worth a look, especially if you are a journalist or interested in reportage. Over 160 pictures submitted by Photojournalists, picture agencies, newspapers and magazines from around the world.
Book 4 in the Ilex step by step series and the weakest of the set. The book offers a series of fixes for digital images, using pictures that are not that visually exciting. You can get most of the info covered here in each of the other three books but buying one of those will give you a great deal more on your chosen subject. Alternatively check out any of the Photoshop tutorial books that are reviewed here and are much better. Overall visually well designed but dull from an illustration point ...

The busiest day is Monday and Wednesday with Tuesday and Thursday close behind. Friday drops a little, as does Sunday. Saturday is the quietest day.
If you post at a busy time your photo will soon disappear of the first page. If you post when it's quiet not many people will be around to click or comment. There's no ideal time to maximise the potential of your image being viewed and commented on.
If you give good feedback on other members' work that will often help you get feedback in return.
Yes, the more comments the better, as this will allow the poster to get a general feel for opinion on their post. After all, a large part of critique on any photo is personal opinion.
It's important not just to go and critique photos that are currently uncritiqued (although this is, of course, valuable). The idea is to offer as much support, help and comment across the board.
We only allow 1 photo per day to the Main Gallery so everyone gets a good chance of comments on their pics. e2 members are able to upload 500mbs of photos to their portfolio per month using the multi-uploader. While free members are allowed 50mb.
This is an e2 member feature
You can add a header photo to your portfolio page by going into your portfolio settings
My Settings>Portfolio Information and scroll down to the e2 Header Image section.
All images must be:
- JPEG format (.jpg at the end)
- RGB format (not CMYK)
- No larger than 770x150 pixels in size
- No adult or explicit material
- No advertising material
Go to "My Settings" by clicking on the link on the right in your portfolio. Then to Portfolio Information via the link at the top of the page and then scroll down to Portfolio Photo option. From here you can edit you portfolio photo. Alternatively if you are logged in use this link here
It's not an error. Many visitors don't have time or feel compelled to leave a comment, but they can still click to say they like a photo without commenting.
The number next to the blue heart only represents how many people have clicked to say they like your photo. It bears no relation to the number of comments made.
A link is placed in the daily forum posts made and you can access Photo Month via the Inspiration drop down on the menu. There's also two tabs on the homepage: Techniques and Features where you can see recently added content. To view a specific article, just click on its title.
The theme changes daily to coincide with the daily technique / feature that's posted on site. You will find a list of themes in the Photo Month forum all of which have dates next to them. The next day's theme is posted at midnight. All images need to be posted in the relevant forum posts.
We don't upsize images as this will result in very poor quality. If your photo doesn't have a large size, this will be because you uploaded a photo which is no bigger than 600x600 pixels. We recommend uploading the full resolution version of your photo.
It's a daily guide to help readers take better photos of the chosen subject. The forum then provides a place to show examples of this subject. You can go out and take the shot specifically (which is encouraged to help those who want to develop) or you can show off previous examples. Use it how you like.
1. The file must be a JPEG file (.jpg or .jpeg)
2. The photo must be in RGB format (not CMYK)
Note that if you use Adobe RGB (1998) colour space rather than sRGB it will result in a loss in density and contrast.
All members can upload one photo each day. If there is a problem with the photo, you can delete it and re-upload it again but you can only do this twice.
If you just need to alter the description or title, send a Problem/Suggestion report form and one of the team will make the changes for you.
After you have deleted that one photo, you can only upload and delete one more photo that day. However, you will be able to delete, individually, all previous photos ever uploaded.
In the photo information panel below your photo you will see a blue bar titled 'Photo Options'
Hover over that with your mouse cursor and you will see an option to delete the photo.
Click on the word 'Delete' and then on the 'are you sure' conformation and your photo will be deleted from your portfolio and it will be removed from the Gallery.
When you delete a photo you will also lose any comments and any votes or awards that it had.
Only portfolios that have had a photo added to them within the last 31 days appear on the list. Please also note that the list is cached, so is only updated a few times each day.
We try to have just one theme each Friday and the idea is to have a bit of light-hearted fun to brighten up the day.
With Digital Photo Frames becoming ever popular and the market increasing rapidly, it's hard to know which one to choose, so we've devised this guide to let you know exactly what you need to look for.
The photos do not have to be photographed one at a time - a group of as many as your particular lens will cope with can be taken together, specially the smaller ones. If they are older photos (which mine were then many may be faded or scratched and bent. The retouching I found was easier with a RAW photo than with a scan. But that may be irrelevant if a large industrial scanner is used.
What do you image a 'professional' setup to be? You just need at least one good light and some reflectors (white card or tin foil that has been scrumpled and flattened). My first thought for the above would be a window to the right and a reflector on the left to bounce light back and reduce shadows (moving the reflector back and forwards will change the amount of 'fill-in' light). After that i...
You don't say exactly what size you want to print, but I bought a Canon Selphy for 6x4 snaps. Dye sublimation prints are fine for the photo album or for framing and it won't clog up. As I only want 12 x 16 inch prints for my club I use DS Colour Labs for colour and b/w, So reasonable and super quality, so no need for another ink-guzzling, money-wasting photo printer.
I get inspired by loads of imagery and artwork on here ... but for me, is a visual inspiration. If it's something that moves me emotionally, I'll try and capture the feeling it inspired in something I produce - sometimes it works, other times it fails dismally. But I will always try and put my own spin on it and create something unique to me. Inspiration's a funny thing ... Angie's comment ab...

Don't worry about using the forums too much. It's good to see genuine posts for help and others who just read them may find them useful.
Then you might find this useful. Cheers Jestertheclown:)
Forum: Digital imaging
Yes that's worthwhile trying.
Thanks again. I'll have a quick look at these but if that doesn't help I may just go to the Adobe on-line forums and see if that produces anything. I also have Scott Kelby's book on PSE 13, which is of no immediate assistance - maybe I'm looking in the wrong section! (it's a big book .........) At the end of the day it's no biggie - just a slight annoyance/minor inconvenience.

A good many police officers paid lumps off their mortgages and bought cars and holidays with their overtime. Me included, one of my constables got some jackets made with the logo "Scargill payed off my Mortgage" The divisional commander was not impressed, he never did have a sense of humour.
Forum: General Photography discussion
then obviously that's not always possible because you have to work within set boundaries (generally speaking).Many people think that being a professional photographer is about weddings and other commisioned work where he who pays the the piper calls the tune. But actually there is a wide area of photography where people employ you because of what you do (covered by your 'generally speaking' re...

That makes sense Chris - Thanks. But in any case you can try Lightroom free for a month - so download it and try - then if it doesn't work you have lost nothing. I might do that.
