Hey Ron Is that a self-portrait!? Looks like a nice, relaxed atmosphere! Here are a couple I just shot Saturday morn...for a 'Father's Day Package'! N90S, SB-28 Nikkor 28-105 w/Diffusion filter Fuji NPS 160 Cheers, Chris (Lefty) Taylor You're only as good as your last shot!
OOPS! I should have been more clear, I was shooting it as a "Father's Day Package" for HER husband and father! Thank you for the kudos though, if I weren't married...I would be proud to have those ladies at home very sweet, the two of them. BTW, my wife was at this particular photo shoot ...as my prop & reflecter-holding girl! It's her co-worker in photo. Thanks again.
Cheers, Chris (Lefty) Taylor You're only as good as your last shot!

Rhetoric is spelled r-h-e-t-o-r-i-c. But your use of the word is incorrect. I could give you the dictionary definition, but I'm guessing you might have one of your own, so there's no need to do that here. What we are engaged in is more like friendly banter. (At least I consider it friendly.)
The "dog" expression is just that - an expression. A quite popular one that even school children know, and that you don't actually mean that someone is a dog when you use it. If you need further explanation I can provide it.
And I am perfectly friendly. Didn't I try to calm you down in my last post. I can be unfriendly, but you don't want to see that and it has no place in this fourm.
And I haven't been a member that long, but I have posted photos, not that has anything to do with anything in particular.
So you have a great night and try and get some rest.
(And yes, I know you are not my actual bother. Take it more in a biblical sense.)

I had to do an assignment in a portraiture class (ugh. . I HATE portraiture) and I actually got a good grade on it. My friend Osei was wearing an Italian suit when he did me the selfless favor of jumping into a municipal fountain in the spirit of good photography. Here is Osei:
Dbyrd, have I ever told you, that' you're my best friend, now how about a hook up? Just kidding. I jsut a got a gig as a portrait photographer so I'll have enough people in front of the camera to deal with soon enough. I wanted cross over from PJ to art and end up going portraiture. Who knew?
Ok this is one of my little buddy Sarah. I forced her to wear hockey gear which she took in stride.
This is a shot a took in Morocco when I was there on holiday. We were driving through a remote village near the desert when I saw a butcher shop with this little guy sitting outside. I asked him if I could take his photograph (sign language ) and then took a few shots. We stayed in another village only five miles away. I bought a really big cigar there which a gave to this fellow the next day when I drove by the butcher shop again. He sat on exactly the same spot and seemed very pleased with my gift.
Excellant shot, Preston. I thnik I'll elave you in charge of my challenge while I'm away for the next week. So in leving here's my final portritr shot of the week.
I'll give ya all a little fan service for both him and her, with a couple, a photographer from my class years ago in a Red Cross worker jumpsuit, Tim McGraw, and just to keep the guys happy, a woman. Sorry this stuff is dated a bit, sorry.
After my grand-daughter, Julia Anne, was born last October, I started a "Julia of the Month" club. Once (or more frequently) a month I email the latest picture of Julia with some kind of theme appropriate for the month. In May, I did "Senorita Julia" in honor of Cinco de Mayo and in June I did "Babe Julia" in honor of Babe Ruth and the great American summer past time of baseball.
Everybody loves them. The first of each month I get many emails asking, "Where is my Julia of the Month?!?!?"
This is a shot I took for last years senior prom. I thought that I would try a different angle while the parents were shooting straight on. I think the fence is a bit distracting, but I did not have much choice in positioning. Taken in open shade in early afternoon.
Nikon FE- Nikkor 75-150 3.5 @ about 125 other info forgotten. Desaturated red a bit in Photoshop because he had a really vivid sunburn.
Okay, here is one of my more treasured portraiture of my youngest daughter, Sandy. This was taken with my old N70 outfitted with a likewise old 70-210mm f/4-5.6D Nikkor, loaded with Kodak Tri-X. Nikon filter Soft Focus 1 was used, at 180mm and f/5.6 aperture. I also employed multi-flash, i.e., on-camera and with slave on a tri-pod.
I took this picture of my wife in our living room, with her back to the window. As a lightsource I used my Leica slide projector. Camera was a F100 with a Tamron 90mm macro lens on a tripod. I used NPH 400 printfilm and scanned the print with a flatbed. I then used Photoshop to crop, change tonal values and to get rid of scratches.
My friend Carol. The contrast is low because this roll of film (TMAX 400) somehow got damaged. This was one of the few salvagable pictures on the roll. The others had wierd bubbles, and spotty regions of over and under exposure. Nikon N80, 28-105 at 105mm, f/4.5, 1/90th sec >.
Your image would be the correct way if you would put the year of copyright after the copyright symbol: copyright, 2002, Name. FYI: Many countries do not have laws protecting your copyright and there are many websites that steal images from photographers around the world and post them without fear of prosecution. In the USA, the best way to protect yourself is to have your copyright registered with the U.S. Copyright office.
Hi, for your information, if you have Copyright registered in EU, then it applies for all EU countries automatically, but that's it. It would not apply in Slovenija for instance. Don't worry about me, but that's how it works. Here you can read more about it if you want:
Most Nionains really do not worry about copywrite for the site. My older pix having it distinctly inbedded, but I find this to be way too distracting. Everything done from mid-2000 and up, I try to blend it more as a watermark so it does not detract from the image. Personally I did this for all my shots for my web site when I was overly paranpid but I would not worry about copywrite on here, just for the fact that we post lowres pix which are not really usable for anything other than what we post. I would not really worry about someone stealing you iages off here just cause, the 70k res is so low you really can't get much of a print. I imagine that most everything I will be posting on here will be without copywrite in the near future just cause I think it really looks bad.
Anycase, this is really getting off the topic of the post, and should be continued either in the cafe' or general forums.

Agree with you, I commented on Philip's wish to know more about copyright and how it works. I think images he is posting are just smaller versions of bigger high res pictures - same as for the rest of us - for which copyright is an issue, for some more for others less.
It's a general issue so maybe we should really open it there. Take care,
I really need a decent slide/negative scanner. Oh well, here goes... This guy is a very good friend of mine, though a tad older than myself. (He's somewhere between 85 and 87 years old). Nikon FE-2, old 43-86mm zoom (my only zoom), f/3.5 using Fuji NPS 160 pro portrait negative film (I love this film).
Not a great shot, but it really catches his character well. No touch-ups, just scanned....
This is a grab picture of my Dad. I had to catch him when he wasn't looking because he will always frown and glare at a camera. Taken indoors with a FM-10, 35-70 Nikor, Fujifilm Superia 400, 1/30 @ F:3.5 handheld! Tried a 2nd one with flash, got the "look and the frown".
