Quote: “What we call reality in pictures, seems to be the optical projection, a European way of looking at the world, that accepts a world seen from a single point.” – David Hockney

Thought for the day: The first advice I received in Photography

When I first started in photography I found or was given 3 pieces of advice:

  1. When taking portraits, set everything up and then take two giant steps forward. Refocus and take the picture.
  2. Read the Kodak advice book carefully for where the Sun should be with relation to the camera and the subject. And then be sure to never do what Kodak said in my shoots
  3. Lastly, I need to point out that I was on a very small desert island where it was very hot and supplies took months to arrive (USCG Loran Station Marcus Island). The person who taught me to print negatives encouraged me to get as many prints per 8×10 sheet of print paper as possible, he considered 1”x1.5” prints to be an excellent size. We should also use the photo chemicals as long as we could get any images. And that working where the temperature was 30-40 degrees F higher than what Kodak recommended wasn’t a problem

I still follow #1 and #2.  But not #3.  No, not #3…

About the Author:

SlickPic was created by a group of like-minded photographers and photography-enthusiasts who wanted a service that wouldn't force them to conform to a certain style or niche, but one that would allow them the freedom to use their photos to tell whatever stories they want. They wanted a service that was capable of storing, showcasing, sharing, and displaying photos in all the different ways people use photos: some are meant just for family, some are taken for friends, and some are made for the world to see.
