Gato Amarillo's recent activity

  • To me, that's a lot of stuff to carry around on a vacation. For a paying job I'll carry whatever it takes, but for a vacation - unless it's mainly a photo trip - I'd rather travel light. As someone ...
  • I would charge per painting - something like $XX for from 1 to 3 paintings in a session plus $XX for each additional painting. You may want to charge extra for larger paintings, or if an artist's ...
  • Replied in Does C&C help?
    I've been thinking about this for a day or so. I'm not sure I ever achieved "soul," certainly not consistently. By nature I'm a pretty reserved person and that shows in my photography. Put another ...
  • You could try a download to a different computer or with a different reader. And the obvious -- contact Lexar or check their website to see what they offer for recovery software or services. Some ...
  • Replied in Old tintype
    A technical aside -- Are you sure this is a tintype (on metal) and not an ambrotype (on glass)? The case and general look of the photo seem to me more typical of ambrotypes. Photos become orphans ...
  • Replied in Does C&C help?
    Yep. It was simple: The guy looked at my photos and said "All technique and no soul." Hurt like hell at the time, probably because I knew instantly it was true. I've been working for more soul ...
  • Heath has a good idea, but he misses one big point: Why carry two devices when you can do the job with one?

    A camera means another device to keep up with, more batteries to charge, and 400 bucks...

  • Great story, and a great looking guy. FWIW, your "negative" looks to be a positive, often known as a transparency -- the big brother of the more familiar 35mm color slides. Photographers who could ...
  • Biggest thing I can say from my experience is talk to the doctor about your concerns before surgery. I was extremely nearsighted all my life but after surgery I can live about 90 to 95 percent of ...
  • Replied in Wouldn't want to
    First off, 50 is not my focal length. Give me a 35mm (or equivalent) if I must live with only one lens. Second, I can't think of any way in which the current Leica cameras really excel - except ...
  • Agree with Richard. It is a difficult time and I understand you being uncomfortable but business is business. You need at the very least to give her the courtesy of an estimate before you shoot so ...
  • If I really had to buy (say the house burned down) I'd most likely go with Panasonic again, but keep it to a minimal set up. While I am pretty much committed to mirrorless cameras, it would be ...
  • I use back button quite a bit, but not exclusively. It depends on the subject and, for me, on which camera I'm using. One of the things I value about my Panasonics is the easy transition - hit the ...
  • You'll learn more about B&W technique, but that may not help your color. B&W and color composition are very different things, and of course the control of tonality and color (or lack of color) ...
  • The indemnification clause is a good idea - one I had not thought of in this context. I'll have that in mind in future contracts and agreements. Having worked in advertising I just assume some ...
  • Interesting proposition. At least they are offering to pay, even if it's not very much. Depending on the deal it could be right for someone building that kind of portfolio. Or some nice extra money ...
  • All my photography files are on external drives (with backup copies, of course). None of my editing is very heavy duty so I don't need an especially powerful machine, plus I almost never work on ...
  • Replied in yep
    Good pictures are not always about technical quality. Most of the unplanned photography I do is about being in the moment. Recalling the feel and mood of a time and place is more important than ...
  • Call up a collection of full-frame photos on Flickr or the like. How many of those photographers would qualify? Could Canon, Nikon or Sony afford to serve a market that small? Any one of the ...
  • Sony is putting a ton of money into developing a new system - bodies and lenses. They need to recover these costs as quickly as possible even though the costs are applied over a much smaller sales ...
