About me:

My career in photography spans over 40 years, beginning as a rock concert photographer and then staff photographer for the New York Nets basketball team in 1974.

My original photographs have been exhibited at art shows for over 35 years.

I'm active on numerous forums where I answers questions about photography, digital imaging and art shows.

Shooting exclusively digital since 2001, my current digital photo art has been featured in the best selling book "Mastering Digital Printing" and in "Art Business News". I also write about photography and imaging technology for Shutterbug Magazine.

Since 2004, I've worked with thousands of artists helping improve their jury images and now also photographs artwork for artists to apply to art shows with.

  • My coolpix A has two, U1 and U2. I have one set for family pictures and the other set for taking booth pictures at art shows. The art show settings include aperture priority F11, low ISO, and auto ...
  • Replied in Do you burst?
    When I shot sports, basketball with motorized Nikon's and manual focus, I shot mostly in single shots and sometimes in two or three frame bursts. I do have some two frame sequences on my web site ...
  • Maybe too late but... I purchased the Mini 2 and hated the color. It's well documented that Apple screwed up on the color gamut for the first generation retinal display mini. My old ipad 2 had ...
  • If you're printing on canvas, you can print as large as you want because the texture of the canvas hides any pixel issues you have. If you supply the file to be outsourced for printing, supply ...

  • Install the software that came with the camera.
  • I'd get the s110 for $180.
  • Yes, after looking at the images on his web site. He is able to capture multiple happenings in his images. That to me, is what street photography is about. If you study Henri Cartier Bresson's ...
  • It's the direction you point your photography. I've spent the past 45 years chasing fine art photographs that I could market. I've successfully sold my photographs at art shows for over 35 years. ...
  • I used one for years to shoot my fine art still lifes. The first two birdhouse images were done on 4x5 but the rest were with the 500CM and 120mm Makro lens:
  • For the artwork, Dynalite strobes and oversized white umbrellas. I also use a 20 inch EZCube for the jewelry.
  • SOLD
  • Replied in Photo split up
    Most photographers plan that in advance. They set up on a tripod and take three pictures to create a triptych with. Cutting a picture into thirds reduces the pixel dimensions you have to print, ...
