  • 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
  • India Now

    by Ellenboughn | 22nd of April, 2008

    Often photos of India show the poorer side of life. It is true that photojournalism has done much to alleviate the state of the poor by exposing their plight to the world. Too often though we fail to photograph evidences of positive economic growth and modernization of ancient... More
  • What Makes Best Selling Photo?

    by Ellenboughn | 12th of February, 2008

    A widely distributed video produced by a soap company shows that some long necked, wide-eyed beauties aren’t necessarily that way because of exalted strands of DNA. Go here to see how expert makeup and the judicious use of PhotoShop can transform a merely pretty woman into... More
  • All the Pretty Faces

    by Ellenboughn | 19th of June, 2007

    When I think of portraits, I don't visualize the standard, studio shot of a family or a high school grad or even a scion of the business world. I think in stock pictures, so I see an image of a person or animal or an illustrated character that looks like he/she/it is... More
  • Booming

    by Ellenboughn | 24th of May, 2007

    The older folks are most definitely not hanging around the rocking chairs these days. Life expectancy has been extended greatly over the last 30 years. Those that are living longer are enjoying it more. This is a generation that started going to the gym in their 20's and... More

  • Defining Or Redefining Model Image

    by Emeraldraindropsphotography | 19th of August, 2015

        I wish to congratulate Seattle model Serjski on her first image sale through other channels! As some of you may know, individual image sales are not lucrative earnings for the most part, but every sale counts. Beyond the sales, here is what I really enjoy.... More
  • My first photos with a model (in black and white)

    by Truthservant | 13th of August, 2015

    Hello friends, I like to share with you my first ever photos with a model. I chose to process them in black and white. What do you think?    I think black-and-white is suitable for some photos where color can be a real distraction. It is good for photos with patterns... More

  • My first images with a model

    by Avenikolas | 17th of July, 2015

    For sure images with models are better than editorial photos with strangers. I asked my best indonesian friend, Sarif, if does he want to be my model. This is some of these pictures what we made. Hope that buyers love asian models. :D       More
