Hi. My name is Lonnie. Have been a member of this community for quite a while and turned notifications on.  Am interested in getting criticisms of my photos, finally. Positive criticism is cool, yet honest criticism helps me to learn. Saved for ages and am using a Canon T-5.

Okay, today I launched my photography site. Not really sure when I can call myself a "professional" - was I not yesterday but today I am because I have a website? Do I need my first sale? Do I need to generate enough revenue to ditch my dayjob?

I come to this community looking for critique and advise. What do you guys do to drive traffic? How do you try to stand out? What sells, and what doesn't?

Here's the URL, if you'd like to take a look...

Going Down.

We stayed at this hotel on our first and last few nights in India. It had a glass lift on the front of the building and this wonderful marble spiral staircase in the centre.

At the moment I'm working my way through editing all my photos from my trip, check out my profile if travel photography is your thing! As I come across rare gems, I will run the Voting Pool gauntlet! This photo is a re-edit of one that made it through a while back.  I've tried to address all the issues that were pointed out.

Hi, I'm Sherry.  I'm a gardener/garden designer in Charlotte NC and usually have my camera with me at work just in case.  I make art in gardens and like to take photos and play with them in Lightroom and Photoshop to make art for my walls.  I'm new at it so thought it would be fun to check out others photos and critique in Light Box and get some critique on mine as well.   First, just wanted to introduce myself.    Cheers.

I probably should have done a better introduction from when I started posting here and I’m doing it now because I think it will add some context to my comments. 

I studied graphic design and some photography in school and worked as a graphic designer and web designer since the mid-90s primarily doing page layout and illustration so I know my way around photoshop, and have done some color correction but not as a retoucher. This summer I moved to Manila because my wife got an opportunity that was too good to turn down and I suddenly have a lot of time on my hands. I also followed her to Africa for a couple of years so that’s why I have so many images from there. 

I’ve taken the opportunity to expand my interest in photography and retouching with an eye toward eventually getting some work as a high end retoucher. I think I can use the time difference as advantage because I will be able to work while others sleep. 

I find this forum very helpful in getting criticism and possibly more in giving criticism because it helps me train my eyes. I hope everyone finds my comments helpful. This is a very subjective endeavor and it’s difficult to comment without context and sometimes it may come off as arrogant and may not even be applicable for any given photo, or photographer. If it’s too technical it’s not helpful and if it’s too rudimentary it’s insulting.

Thanks again for all your time, and comments.

-Will

The path to my photography

A long time I was much more into musics (playing) than photography. I just used a point-and-shoot (Canon Ixus 50) mostly in vacation for years until I got dissatisfied with the limited amount of manual control and the limited optics and sensor capabilities it had when I thought more about the difference of what pictures I wanted to take to what pictures I was able to take and I found the limitation was in my gear (ok, that is easy with that camera, I agree :) ). After some research I ended up buying a Canon 60D and some lenses (including my 100mm Macro which is still one of my favorite lenses delivering me some of the best of my pictures). That is now nearly four years ago and was a remarkable step which triggered turning my occasional shooting into a serious hobby. After two years of learning and trying in the DSLR world I ended up going full-frame by buying my now most used camera the Canon 5D III where I luckily could reuse most of my lenses bought so far.
The gear is heavy and I realize I do not always have it with me, which is often a pity. Looking for a solution there I just found the Photokina announcement of the Fuji x100T and this camera is now on top of my buying list, to finally have something good always with me and maybe also explore some more street photography in future.

I really enjoy nice pictures, whether shot by my own or looking at other's work.

#delete1  The high-key look works, but maybe a too blown out for me, personally.  I'd been more inclined to have saved if the dust and other things had been removed from the image.  Subject focus is also a bit soft.  Nice composition, however.

Feiner FE-151 Stereo Headphones Headset w/ Microphone 3.55 mm 
Listening to music motivates me. It also drives my work and productivity. Sometimes it makes all the difference between a sluggish day and a highly productive one.

When I really need to get work done, the headphones go on.
