Way LOUD
posted by ellenboughn - 23rd of september, 2008

Your Photo Counts!
posted by ellenboughn - 16th of september, 2008
America and some other parts of the world are somewhat preoccupied with the U.S. presidential election. The candidates are often out and about in public and can be photographed in venues large and small. Images of the candidates are... More...

Women (want to) RULE...
posted by ellenboughn - 3rd of september, 2008

GENERATION Y
posted by ellenboughn - 19th of august, 2008

Going Negative
posted by ellenboughn - 12th of august, 2008
Much is being made in the current U.S. presidential race about ads and emails that disparage the candidates with the use of innuendo and false accusations. The polls show that most Americans are opposed to such ads. In general, negative... More...
Baby Boomlet
posted by ellenboughn - 5th of august, 2008

A Whale of a Tale
posted by ellenboughn - 30th of july, 2008
Taking photos of giant marine mammals can be tricky. First of all, they simply can’t be counted on to show up on set on time. Whale watching tour companies chart the movement of known pods and individuals to ensure that their trips... More...
Camp Whatucallit
posted by ellenboughn - 22nd of july, 2008
As the end of summer approaches, it’s time to capture as many summer themed images as possible. When the demand for this genre grows in early 2009, you’ll find yourself looking for a campsite or outdoor pool that isn’t covered... More...
The New Commuters
posted by ellenboughn - 15th of july, 2008

Stuff Happens
posted by ellenboughn - 25th of june, 2008
What does leaving my wallet at the bookstore yesterday, a flashing warning light on the car dashboard as I pulled out to drive back to the bookstore and an error in posting a payment to a bill have to do with stock photography? Typical... More...
You Say 'Macro'. I Say Maybe...
posted by ellenboughn - 17th of june, 2008
What ever you call it, macro photography (taken with a macro lens or a micro lens as one manufacturer calls their macro lens) is NOT simply a close-up image. What’s the difference between "close-ups", "macros&... More...
War and Peace
posted by ellenboughn - 11th of june, 2008

Staycation

Get Framed
posted by ellenboughn - 28th of may, 2008
