I am a budding photographer from beautiful Connecticut who enjoys photographing things that remind me of the creativity and beauty of my gracious Creator and Lord. I hope that my photos remind others of Him, too!
I can’t see that much of a difference in quality between 100 and 65, and yet, on an experiment I just ran, the difference in size is 10MB vs 1.63MB.
I find this very interesting. Sooo, then why export at 90 or 100 if you can save that much space by going with 65 or 70?
When I’ve tried running experiments myself, it gets a little tricky b…[Read more]
You know, I don’t think it must’ve been a possibility, or I’m pretty sure I would’ve stepped back. I’m not sure why though, other than I was getting too much road, maybe, when I tried that? I don’t really remember.
I do remember walking back and forth quite a bit to try and find a vantage point. Typically I would shoot most perspectives that I…[Read more]
I don’t know if Pass Gallery lets you have a personalized website, but I liked that Pixieset does.
Ah, good point! And I love Pixieset’s personalized websites. They look really professional.
Those amounts of storage spaces on Pass Gallery just look so tempting, though! And for free… 🙂
I set up a free account with Pass Gallery before I was told about Pixieset
Pass Gallery advertises three free options ranging from 1500 photos (5GB of storage) to 6,000 photos (20 GB of storage) which, at a glance, appear to all have the same features. Do you know if it’s really as good as it looks or what the difference is…[Read more]
I feel like online galleries are the more accepted way to do things these days – is that correct?
I don’t entire feel qualified to answer this, so I’ll let @jamesstaddon give a more official answer :), but from my limited experience, I’d say, yes. These days, it just makes things easy for you and easy for your client. Plus, you could t…[Read more]
I currently use Pixieset as well, and was just realizing the other day I need to look into this myself! I’m close to running out of space on the free account, and I need to figure out my options going forward! 🙂
I definitely like the look of the website you can create on there – it looks great! I hadn’t put mine together yet (I do…[Read more]
(only, I export at a quality setting of 90, because that decreases the amount of hard drive space it takes up without reducing any visible quality, at least, as far as I can tell).
That’s good to know. I’m still not always sure I can totally see a difference in the quality settings so I usually would choose 100 to be safe rather than sorry.
Ok! That makes sense. I’ve decided to turn mine off…I just prefer to have a little more control over that.
So, do you just get a computer notification and then update a few weeks after that?
One of the things I find hard when photographing paths, is that if you get down too low, then you can’t see where the path leads too or the curve. If that makes any sense.
Ah good point. That does make sense. You’re right, and it does really depend on the path, and on the surroundings!
I remember I felt like I was going to break my lens for all the times I kept trying to zoom out more to try to include more of the scene.
.only to realize I was zoomed out as far as possible! 😄
Wow, it is just so amazing to see the variety of flowers and plants everyone is submitting! Incredible!
Here are my photos!
The first four are ones I shot specifically for this assignment. It was a good challenge to find truly perfect order in nature….like, without any imperfections!? I discovered quite a few things around my yard have little…[Read more]
So glad to hear that the shoot went well, @creative-click-photography! Sounds like quite the scary moment there with your lens though!
What size should I export the photos to give to the couple?
I’d suggest you give them full size photos. Currently, when I export my photos in Lightroom to deliver to a client, I do not resize the photos down, I…[Read more]
A few weeks ago, I went to a Christian camp for a work weekend with some of my siblings. Since we were there for work, not for pleasure, I barely touched the DSLR, but the first opportunity I had, I knew I wanted to photograph the driveway. It was so picturesque! I especially loved the steep bank down to the lake.
Well, when I had a few minutes…[Read more]
Yay! It’s so great you had the opportunity to scout out the engagement shoot location ahead of time, @creative-click-photography!
I think one thing that could make this look less like a snapshot is the perspective. As you know, when most people grab out their phone and snap a picture, they tend to do so from head or chest level, and that’s w…[Read more]
Hey all, kind of a weird question here, but I guess I’ll ask it anyways.
For those of you with an Adobe CC photography subscription, do you let your CC apps auto-update, or not?
And are there any negatives to having auto-updates ON?
This came to mind, because most programs on my computer don’t just update on their own without “asking” me so…[Read more]
Hah I remember a similar discussion last time HSLDA’s photo contest rolled around!
So again, if I were entering this contest, I’d….
1. Define the word “ornate”
A photo is supposed to tell a story, so in order to tell a story of a word, you need to know what it means, right? 🙂 I’d grab out a dictionary and look up the definition, and try and…[Read more]
Thank you all so much for your comments! I shared the link to this forum string with my friend and she said to thank everyone for their help. She is planning to look into getting a used camera, and appreciated the tips on lighting and learning more about photography in general.

So enjoyed this discussion on the webinar last week! Just a few additional thoughts I had on the practical side of things (sorry some of it is a little redundant to things James covered). I’m definitely planning on re-watching that part of the webinar at some point!
Several times that I’ve been on a portrait photographer’s site and come across a…[Read more]
I had thought of the lighting aspect too, James.
OK, so my friend says,
I want them to look more professional, from other painters I know they have said a better camera can help get the blue or darker white out that I seem to pick up on my phone camera.
I want to make prints…
