nonuniform: I wish Wacom would come out with a pressure sensitive tablet already.

There is also the Microsoft surface. It comes with a stylus, is pressure sensitive, and can run full versions of adobe or other editing programs. This should be the graphics makers' dream device.

jmmgarza: How 'bout 9 minutes?

Don't be silly! 9 minutes isn't enough time! Step into my office...

Pythagoras: so apparently without much effort at all i could be a portrait photographer for the guardian.

I think you have to know enough to make the process effortless first.

marike6: I like the advice for portraits of rock bands: "Normally the photographer selects a suitably interesting section of brick wall (graffitied is good – it goes with the youth vibe)".

Graffiti, maybe an anarchy symbol or two, pose them asymmetrically and call it a day.

The David Bailey monochrome photograph, is that a vignette on the top half or done with a background light?

Hmmmm...I thought railroad tracks in an industrial area were the current thing for gritty bands...guess I am behind the times.

I think they are trying to point out that you don't have to spend a lot of time or go through a lot of hassle to get a good portrait. Sometimes the quick shot will do just fine. I would say that all of these are great examples of what can be done with little resources and time. Wonderful.

On photo Gone with the wind in the Participation: The Two-Thousand Club challenge (10 comments in total)

This is the very first image that I have ever felt moved to comment on. Quite simply, it is breath taking. Everything about this image is arresting. I'd love to get my hands on a print...again, a first, I have never even thought of buying a print from another photographer. Great capture, and thank you for sharing this with everyone!
