I must add - I am not a fan of the tilted image - but given the circumstances (chaos including a 2 1/2 yr old male human child camera left having massive tantrum) it was the only way I could get these two in shot together!
Love Snoopy too L ;)

I was not going to crit the second one as I was sure you had your reason(s) for it being unlike your usual 'style' ;)

As for Snoopy............he was more human than his "family", talk about one laconic pooch with a big dose of the wild child in him :lol:

Schulz's 'view of the world' humour IMO is sadly missed in the world of today :( Though I do now enjoy "Matt" in the DT, his wit is scalpel sharp!


That was a great meal ~ you must have a good set of pans :p

Got to go and get a new router tomorrow. Can anyone recommend one with good signal, and speeds please? Been looking at the Belkin AC1000. Mine is ok on the wired side, but the wireless is getting beyond a joke. I know I have a lot of devices connected but, c'mon. I've updated everything, and no change.

Hi folks

Since this is a "safe" environment (i.e. you're all really nice, not fanboyz or trolls or just plain rude) - I'm looking to get more into portrait photography. I've spent years and years doing landscape and travel and wildlife and macro, but recently I've started getting into off-camera lighting, and really enjoy it. The natural progression is to use that awesome lighting for portraits - and here's my question: I'm planning to sign up to something like Model Mayhem, and do a series of shoots to build up a portfolio. The trick is, to actually register at MM and get some models to want to work with me, I need a portfolio. It's the proverbial up-the-creek-without-a-paddle story.

I've asked some friends but so far have only negative responses. SO where to next? Any suggestions? I'd like to get a set of 5 or 10 really good photos into a portfolio, and once I have that I think I can take it from there.

Any and all advice will be much appreciated - even if it's of the form "don't do it!" :)

@Crunchie, if you can't get friends to help is there a course you can go on, I know for weddings there are one day courses specifically to increase your portfolio.

Few horse shots from earlier in the week

@ Adrian ~ some lovely equine work you are producing :D

But for me the #1 image looks a little odd where (by the head)....it has that nice golden backlit look and the glow on the grass behind but the fill flash (I surmise that is what you used???) has made the horse look too strongly lit such that that grass glow just looks 'odd' and out of balance with the fill flash??? :confused:

PS I suppose the shadow cast by one front leg on to the other just emphasises it so to speak.

Edit ~ the last one without the halter is so very natural, so just a pity that 'he' is not calm/trustworthy enough to work without it for the likes of the other images :) Without it the others especially the #2 & #3 would be elevated from superb to stunning IMO :D

Try looking for a model/photographer group on Facebook as post there as most model using them will do TF and are looking to build thier portfolios also it's how I've met most of mine and found them more reliable than on Model Mayhem.

Adrian that's a cracking set of shot I don' think I can choose a favorite.

What sort of films do you like?

something funny - I thought Alpha Papa was hilarious, I've heard that The Worlds End is very good too

effects & entertainment - Pacific Rim ( I went twice to IMAX it was epic)

and for a night in front of the box, I was very pleasantly surprised at how good the Tom Cruise movie Oblivion was when I saw it last night

*other films and opinions are available :)

Well sadly my wife has a completely polar view on films to me. I think the humour of AP would be lost of her.

Pacific RIM does look awesome for effects.

As for Disney planes, I am there B-)

Could you not add some space around in PP - the bg colour would be fairly easy to clone into the extra space...then you could tilt it back to upright.

Need new body help - I'm stuck on either a 70D or the 6D, which would you choose (knowing I shoot aircraft mainly).

Quite like the idea on the 6D FF, I know a guy who has one for airshows and loves it, but I'm swaying towards the 70D for the tilt screen (for my new pole) and the 1.3crop for airshows. Should go well with a 50-500?

Decisions. :confused:
