I see you enjoy using ultrawide lenses. They do give a great effect. I remember when I got my first 20mm lens, about twenty-five years ago. I don’t use it a lot, but I like to have it nearby. Were those wide angle pictures shot with the iPhone, or are they DSLR shots? Your work is somewhat more, well, pro than mine, which stands to reason. I have had pictures published in American Photo and French PHOTO, so that’s fun for me and the models. Some of those sentences seem out of sequence, but I’m going to bed soon, so they’ll do like that. I was a member of the Professional Photographers Association of British Columbia (PPABC) for a few years, but they dealt mostly in portraits and weddings, two things I very rarely do. Although I’m an amateur, I was able to produce ten 8x10 portraits of professional quality, which was the test to be admitted to the Association. However, the annual $200 gold sticker for my wall membership certificate stopped seeming like good value after a few years. I then joined Model Mayhem, and a local figure art shooter noticed my work. That led to an invite to join a local Facebook photography group, and I finally found myself among like-minded people. We haven’t been active for the last year or two, but we hope to get back to the regular meetings of photographers, models, and makeup artists that we used to have. There are quite a few good local models, but I generally work with the travelling professional models. They contact me when they’re scheduled to be in town, and I take it from there. I really enjoy the shooting, but I need to regain my interest in editing. Do you enjoy editing, or is it a chore for you? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
