  • Not Just a Pretty Face

    by Ellenboughn | 9th of March, 2007

    Facial expressions send strong messages about what an image is trying to say...what the image is about. Unfortunately, a model's lack of expression can sometimes cause the photo to say next to nothing. One expression to avoid is the pouty-pouty runway model blank... More
  • Wild Models

    by Ellenboughn | 6th of March, 2007

    Yesterday I found myself on a long pier stretching far out into the Atlantic Ocean. An aggressive group of large pelicans were hanging around the end of the pier to snatch leftover fresh bait. These... More
  • A Sense of Place (Part II)

    by Ellenboughn | 28th of February, 2007

    Before you arrive in a new location, do research. Looking at map is not enough. Nor are guidebooks necessary the only printed form of information at your fingertips. Get a compass so that you will be able to anticipate how the light will be at different times... More

    I'm in San Francisco this week, staying near Union Square. There is a photographer on every corner snapping every which way. So how do to create images of a beautiful and much photographed city that will stand out from the competition?... More
  • What is She Wearing?

    by Ellenboughn | 20th of February, 2007

    Wardrobe is key to a professional looking image. And the type of clothing that a model is wearing can enhance the salability of an image in more ways than one. Here is a terrific image of a teen writing on the board in her classroom. The model's top... More
  • A Good Stock Image is an Incomplete One...

    by Ellenboughn | 17th of February, 2007

    A pioneer in the stock business once said, "A good stock photo is an incomplete photo". That doesn't make sense, does it? Shouldn't a great stock photo simply be a great photo? Sometimes, yes. But think about one of the reasons stock photos sell and the... More

  • Olympic sale

    by Afrumgartz | 28th of July, 2014

    That wasn't my best try - the accumulator of my camera turned to be too low to work in cold streets. So in fact it was the one good shot. And so many months after the Games, it was surprisingly sold. See Article

    by Digikhmer | 15th of July, 2014
