Just a quick note to everyone: there is starting to be a fair amount of spam on this community. I delete it as soon as I can but be aware that ads for photography services, links to unsavoury sites and that sort of thing will be reported and banned. Also not really fond of self-promoting video links - I feel that this site is more about C&C on images that members post so lets keep it all here within the community, folks, and thank you for your patience if it takes me a bit to remove unacceptable posts.

For all those photographers who don't like critique about their subject's eyes not making solid contact with the camera, I came across this article in today's news. It seems that cereal box designers are trying to move character eyes such that they make better eye contact with children to encourage more sales. Eye contact is everything, folks!

Stegall. Heard of them? You will. I had a blast working with them on the images that would be used to show you visually who these talented women are.

Whenever I see an old abandoned house or barn I just have to shoot it. This one was occupied until the late 70's as far as I can find out. It is a log construction with no indoor plumbing, heated by a wood stove in the kitchen and an oil stove in the livingroom. Can't you hear the family inside - children running, pots being stirred on the stove?

For those who may not have seen +Peter Hurley latest video, it's a 'must' see to get your subjects to look way cool. The video "It's All About the Squinch" focuses on the eyes and how to lose that deer in the headlight appearance that so many have. Check it out by following this link:

Peter Hurley is the man. I have learned a lot about headshots from his videos. The guy knows his stuff. It helps that he was a model before he became a photographer. Its all about the Jaw is also a good one of his.

We seem to be going through a rash of posts from people who don't understand the difference between a headshot and a portrait and the photographers get upset when told their image isn't a headshot. A couple of things: this community was created by a commercial headshot photographer who has appointed as moderators other commercial headshot photographers so our general perspective will be that of ... you guessed it ... commercial headshot photographers. Secondly, this community has been around for a while so anyone wondering if their images are headshots or portraits should take a few minutes and read through the posts. You should be able to figure it out very quickly because the critique is very consistent even though there are several moderators. Last, if you want to post only to show off and can't tolerate critique this may not be the place for you. We welcome everyone but the owner and moderators all view critique as helpful so tantrums, hissyfits and insults will not be tolerated. Post away and let's all learn and grow together!

Hi Everyone ... I've removed the category "sharing only - no critique" after chatting over this community with its owner, +Peter Hurley. We feel that the strength of this community is the ability to share and be critiqued, to have your work seen through different eyes and to use other perspectives to continue growing.. To stop learning is to stop growing so let's keep on learning together!

Ok, Karen.  I sucked it up and did the selfie thing.  Broke 4 lenses before I got one!

On our recent cruise we visited Maho Beach aka Airport Beach in St. Maarten. Check out the blog for a few pictures including the KLM 747 we caught!
Anyone who has travelled in the Caribbean knows about Maho Beach, or as it is also known, Airport Beach. It's on the Dutch side and there you'll find a narrow strip of beach where hundreds of peopl...

Eddington's is my 'go to' place for everything from lunch with the girls to celebrations or quiet, small dinners. The patio is wonderful in the summer months (sometimes just pop over after dinner for a dessert and specialty coffee with friends) and the indoor space is lovely all year 'round. Quite an historic building if you take the time to look around. The menu is varied and I can honestly say I've never had anything close to a poor experience. Thursday Pizza Nights are big fun ... love their potato pizza! All around wonderful - Eddington's never disappoints!
