Splendid Isolation

Not since the long gone days of the camera clubs have I discussed the ups and downs of my adventures with other photographers but recently I’ve felt the need to discover if it’s just me having problems finding suitable talent. If you follow the modelling web site forums everything seems to be hunky-dory so is it only me who’s cursed? Nowadays many girls want to pick and choose how they are portrayed, which is okay to a point, but some of the photos on their portfolios are a long way from being art and surely it’s the tacky glamour scene where the money is, what little there is left in internet modelling that is. So if you are a fellow “artist” I really would like to know how you are fairing in your quest for models.

Eyes Wide Shut

Talking recently to a Canon using photographer friend has opened my eyes to how little I really know about the operation of my Nikon cameras. He was telling me which features on Nikon DSLR’s he preferred to his Canon’s and to be honest I had never heard of them let alone used them. Thinking about it I can’t be using anymore than 10% of what the camera is capable of and have to admit that during many a session I have struggled to remember to turn the thing on.
