Quote from Copperbronze
It wouldn't be much of a site without them though



It would be different true but most photographers would still be taking photos (and with much more to spend on gear) I know I would, indeed models for me are more a case of convenience as I could probably bring in clients willing to pay for images for most shoots I do. It's just less stress and hassle shooting a model as I can pick the look I want and risk complete failure as I don't have to worry about ensuring I have the safe images shot first.

Models are more reliant on photographers than the other way round

Hi MUA's looking for some advice please, my little one is getting into Candy/Sugar Skulls and wants me to start making up her face, I want to start in Black and White and then progress to colours.. Is there a decent facepaint type kit I should look at? I have seen a white base that looks like an oversized lipstick on TV but no idea what it is.... 

Thanks In Advance x

WOW, now that's a brick phone !! prolly survive a nuclear blast that thing !


Yep. It's pretty much bulletproof and its battery life is incredible.

I've used it in the Tabernas Desert, Europe's only desert, in the Empty Quarter on the Abu Dhabi / Saudi border and on the high jabal of Southern Jordan northwest of Wadi Rum, close to where they filmed The Martian, when miles from anywhere and still picked up a signal. On one Jordan trip I even took a call from my daughter in the UK when visiting the Soldier's Tomb in the valley beyond Petra.

The LR phone is, however, quite bulky and heavy. My Samsung, on the other hand, is so small and light it easily slips into the small change pocket in my jeans.

Many NAS drives can act as DLNA media servers nowadays (mine work happily streaming uncompressed music and H264 video to my AV amplifier). The bigger ones from Synology and QNAP even have HDMI ports and subsequent video/audio decoding hardware built-in (as well as a remote control) to plug them straight into TVs/monitors but with the added bonus of having multiple drive bays for plenty of expansion.

The main drawback for a NAS is that you're limited by what you can execute on them (eg. antivirus) but providing you're using a decent sheep-dip methodology then you shouldn't have issues.

A broken spring is mostly not dangerous at all, that is very (and I mean VERY) common on modern cars. I had only one broken spring on a not modern car, this coil spring broke right in the middle and that was really dangerous, the sharp edge remaining was very closed to the tyre ...
But the modern cars usually loose only the top or bottom ring, that mostly does not even fall off from the car. If you dont hear cling cling you wont notice it, until next MOT, so about a year is possible for many.
The most danger is if only a part of a ring breaks, because that falls down on the street, bounces under the car and could become a bullet hitting someone.
But complaining to the driver is useless, since not even the mot opens the mouth about the number of cracking springs: Unlike timing belts there is no premature change required buy the car industry. So everyone drives till they crack, and that can happen with cars which are not really old.

I am more afraid that Volkswagen has not learned a thing since the disaster with Audi 50 these days, where the McPherson link to the steering rod was rusting away.
I see the same bad rust on a 7 y old Fox. On the an Daewoo Tacuma, 13 years old, is nothing to see, all fine.

Breaking parts in the steering are not funny, not to me.

Drive safe.

You have a price in mind for any of it? Sounds like far too much to take it all. Would probably clutter up my own studio. I do live in Glasgow if that helps.

No, you're right. He tends to favour the underage and vulnerable.

All these comments stating Nick Giles is obnoxious, a bully, a troll, an outspoken wanker.. well, of all that I've no doubt as I too remember what he was like on networking sites like these, but let's not also forget 'paedophile' eh?

I’m at a point in my photography where I’m both a mixture of happy and frustrated!

I’m still in what feels like a dead end full time job trying to avoid getting into huge debt trying to carry on doing what I love, despite the fact we all have suffered from the way the image has had a decrease in value and brand new models with no experience are getting offered paid shoots from experienced photographers and new amateurs!


It’s frustrating to think when I was at a lower level of competence I was getting begged for shoots and not constantly asked for payments, why is it my time is deemed so much less valuable , a model can be in a full time job with barely a pinch of experience in comparison and they instantly ask for money!


So I literally have gone from this


and



To

and


So I just wish purestorm was the hub site it was back then and that we hadn’t lost so many from both sides of the camera.

A slight improvement, yes.

A few suggestions:

I'm not a fan of the post-processing you've used. I find it quite harsh for this image, but that's a personal choice.

This Jen Rozenbaum video will help you with this type of posing - https://vimeo.com/128172853

Not a bad photo, but I find the vignette / darker part of the image too heavy and it doesn't look natural.
