  • What size is....?

    by Ellenboughn | 1st of October, 2008

    The past couple of weeks found me in New York just as Fashion Week was ending and last week in Southern California for a seminar. Perhaps because NY was filled with fashionistas and models, I noticed a lot of very, very thin women in the park and on the street. A jogger... More

    Or is it the CYMK? (One matters online; the other in print). Do you dream in color? Did people dream in black and white before the invention of black and white film? If so, how did they know what the world looked like in black and white? When are color photos best and when... More
