  • Women (want to) RULE...

    by Ellenboughn | 3rd of September, 2008

    Truth in advertising requires ads to present the benefits and qualities of their products in an honest fashion. Of course, advertising has a very loose relationship to reality especially in the manner in which women are pictured. Advertisers recognize that women are responsible... More
  • The New Commuters

    by Ellenboughn | 15th of July, 2008

    Commuter patterns have changed dramatically over the past few months as individuals cut back on driving both to save gas money and to protect the environment just as other countries such as India and China begin a love affair with the automobile. Both of these events have... More
  • Earth Day 2009

    by Ellenboughn | 13th of May, 2008

    Earth Day ’08 is over. It’s time to get ready for next year. By all accounts 2009 will be “Earth Year” as all aspects of life are now increasingly examined for their impact on the environment. You will want to photograph iconic eco-products as well as using them... More
  • Working Together

    by Ellenboughn | 12th of September, 2007

    As concepts go, ‘teamwork’ is a big seller. It may appear that images of business teams have been done to death. Not so: a great image of a group of two or more in an office environment working together in an authentic manner, will sell again and again. Styles in furniture... More

  • Dreamstime coffee lounge

  • It's All There in Black and White

    by Ellenboughn | 22nd of August, 2007

    Advertising screams, ‘We want color photos!’ and galleries yell back, ‘Only black & white matters.’ That was the past. Yes, it’s certain that color images dominate in print and web advertising and that classic photography found in galleries is more closely associated... More
  • The RGB of it all

    by Ellenboughn | 10th of August, 2007

    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
  • Masters of Light

    by Ellenboughn | 30th of July, 2007

    Lots of blog talk lately about what differentiates a pro from an amateur. If an image has what it takes, I don’t care who took it. Could be a top photographer or my Aunt Nellie: it’s a professional image. But on the over all career level, it’s usually the light that... More

  • Look down to move up

    by Litadoolan | 6th of May, 2014

    A pal runs a yacht hire company that has done nothing but thrive. He has a sun tan all year round and lives on a diet of ice cream cones. It feels like he was born in a bed of roses and I wish him well. Everyone knows someone like that even if it is from reading about... More
