Stay Frosty
posted by ellenboughn - 9th of september, 2008

Women (want to) RULE...
posted by ellenboughn - 3rd of september, 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
In Chicago a popular European coffee and pastry shop has banned classic baby prams – the type of baby carrier that plows down the street slicing though pedestrian traffic and taking up more space than a SmartCar. I fully understood... More...
Hair and Makeup in Photos
posted by ellenboughn - 15th of april, 2008
While reviewing a featured photographer's portfolio, I saw a perfect opportunity to write about the judicious use of makeup on women models. Nothing better illustrates how makeup can lend authenticity to a model in different situations... More...
The Eyes Have It
posted by ellenboughn - 26th of march, 2008
Facial expressions and body language can either make or break a photo. Again and again we see images that would be successful if only there was emotion in the image instead of a subject with a bored look or a blank stare. How can you... More...
Around the House
posted by ellenboughn - 27th of february, 2008
It’s nearly spring cleanup/fix up time. I’m limiting my spring action to probing the back of the refrigerator to dislodge jars of forgotten spaghetti sauce. But for those that will spend in excess of 150 million dollars on home... More...
Religious Freedom
posted by ellenboughn - 27th of september, 2007
Religion has been much in the news over the last couple of weeks. Some of the flurry surrounds Christopher Hitchen’s best seller: God is Not Great and the tenth anniversary of the death of Mother Theresa. Organized religions down... More...
Gay Pride
posted by ellenboughn - 6th of september, 2007
I have written about certain demographic groups that are important to marketers and advertisers. One of these is the gay and lesbian population. Figures show that approximately 10% of any population falls into the gay/lesbian/bisexual/... More...
It's All There in Black and White
posted 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... More...
The Trendspotting Trend*
posted by ellenboughn - 16th of august, 2007
Traditional stock photo agencies are heavily vested in ‘creative research’. This is the stuff that informs expensive stock productions and drives editing guidelines. The biggest stock producers look for sociological and economic... More...
The RGB of it all
posted 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?... More...
Masters of Light
posted 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... More...
All the Pretty Faces
posted 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... More...
Springtime
posted by ellenboughn - 21st of march, 2007
A few Christmas images have been downloaded in the last few days. Seasonal images are often put into play many months prior to the actual time of year. The conundrum is that the best time to shoot seasonal images is after the... More...
