@esther, if you read the fine print on the assignment, you’ll notice that (as usual) there is a limit of 10 pictures per photographer.
• How to Submit: Members can follow the A, B, C process outlined here. (Instructions for non-members can be viewed here.) You can submit up to 10 photos.
Yes, narrowing it down to 10 fav…[Read more]
I’m curious. What is a gray layer, and how do you use one?
I like the results, that’s for sure.
I endlessly tweak my designs, and even then am hardly ever completely satisfied with them.
I agree entirely!
Something I learned from @dfrazer is to save copies progressively, so that you can go back to a previous version that you worked on (say the day before yesterday) and glean ideas from the progress you’ve made. It can be encouraging.…[Read more]
How could I improve the graphic design?
Find a businessman, or several, that you know well, and ask them to lend you all the business cards in their wallet. Typically, you’ll get a VERY wide selection, and a lot of ideas!
Lesser artists borrow; great artists steal.
Unless you’ve actually done the calculations and found it to be cheaper at home, I suspect that it will be more worthwhile to get a professional to print these for you. You’ll gain three things:
#1, time. Printing and cutting out a hundred business cards (or more as need requires!), with a professional-looking result, doesn’t sound…[Read more]
Hmm, your link https//:ernestlloyd.org doesn’t work, either.
If I go to ernestlloyd.org, I get what the attached screenshot shows.
Personally, I don’t find the reflection distracting; to the contrary! Wedding rings (like any jewellery) are designed to create reflections! If there were none, the ring would look like it were made of plastic.
On the flip side, though, it is distracting that you can distinguish a photographer in the far left ring (if you look closely.) I’ve…[Read more]
A few more submissions.
A few submissions.
One last one.
…so that I can get better glass…
Yes, often upgrading lenses will do A LOT more good than changing bodies. That’s a good point, I didn’t think of it earlier.
That is especially true if you are still working with kit lenses.
Here are a few submissions drawn from my portfolio; mostly they’re from the ESV. (English Standard Version)
What version do they want?
That’s a really good question, @esther. I typically use the ESV; is there going to be a problem with that, @jamesstaddon, or should we try to stick to the more traditional (at least in the USA) KJV, which they use on their website? Or it doesn’t make any difference?
In this, James’ latest blog post, he shares a few links (near the end of the post) that could really help you out.
Yes, you have to download the software to install it, but it is free.
You can read at the link I posted to find out where exactly on the website the version is for your particular Operating System (I assumed you’re using Windows, though I didn’t know). They have pretty complete instructions on there to find out what version of Windows you’re…[Read more]
Wow, these photos show a lot of creativity in composition.
One note on the first one, 20210419-HMJ_5929-edit1-100-sec-at-f-5.6ISO-80055-mmNIKON-D3400.jpg, you might either (I’m assuming this is a composite) push the first line of text a smidgen higher so it doesn’t run through the button on the hat. Also maybe use an even thinner font for the…[Read more]
For creating a watermark:
I’d strongly recommend Inkscape. It has bit of a steep learning curve, but it’s the best vector graphic editor out there. Best of all, it’s free; doesn’t cost you a cent. You can export as PNG, SVG, and a host of other formats.
For applying a watermark:
What photo editing software are you using right now? Because that…[Read more]
@tashavk, have you considered a firmware upgrade?
You’ll have to do a bit of research to find out if there is one for your particular model, or if your camera already has the latest firmware, and more research to find out how to do it, but the jist of it is like a “software update” for your camera. That could help your ‘slow-and-unresponsive’…[Read more]
Other than that the watermarked image has a bit more jpeg compression, I can’t say I see any difference between the two.
Sorry for being rather un-helpful!
Having said that, a thought just struck me.
what I’m referring to is the different layers of color and lightness on the edges of the black. [emphasis mine]
