Thanks to SmugMug for including me in their on-going inspirational series on photographers! I had a great time filming with Anton Lorimer a couple of months ago.

I take it, this is a composite? Her Arm on the table, looks longer than the other arm, if I'm seeing this right? Would that be from the 40mm? I also noticed the head and fingers on the face is a bit large as well, so I was thinking that is the affects of the 40mm. But, I didn't think 40mm was wide enough to do that. I shoot Nikon, and a lot of folks say they shoot with a 35mm, and I always thought that was a bit to wide. So, the question. I did a portrait like that, 28mm on a 28-70, and got, "a technical talking too" about using wides on portraits. In a former life, I was a photo finisher and spotter for a specialty photo lab. So, I tend to see everything when I look closely. Here is my portrait; https://plus.google.com/photos?pid=5965920801264108178&oid=109758010715939138304

NEW WORKSHOP, June 21-22 in northern California. We have been given a special opportunity to hold a workshop in the beautiful town of Fortuna CA, home of the Redwoods. The city of Fortuna has literally rolled out the red carpet for us to hold this workshop in their community.

Within minutes of the historical victorian town of Ferndale, Avenue of the Giants, and Centerville Beach, the photographic opportunities are endless. For more info: http://www.joelgrimesworkshops.com/Joel_Grimes_Photography/Welcome.html

Adobe Evangelist Russell Brown has gone Duck Dynasty! Yes, you heard it here. It is hard to believe that in just one week Russell grew this beard. The truth be known, it is one of my Photoshop creations using two portraits and combining them into one. I am sure you guessed that. I have shown both portraits and the background on my blog and have written a article on "I Am An Illusionist". Check it out. www.joelgrimesworkshops.com

Introduction
Commercial Advertising Photographer for over 30 years.  At heart I am a portrait shooter that loves making people look larger than life.  My goal is to create images that not only fulfill my vision as an artist, but also push the boundaries on what we would call traditionally acceptable.  I love the exploration process of breaking new ground.  I also have a passion to encourage others to explore and fulfill their artistic vision, as well.
