To those who want to help
As someone whose life has been touched by mental illness I second this. Those who live with mental illness, and people close to them, struggle with the stigma of the illnesses. yvonneemilie: To anybody who ever says they wish they could help me when I’m anxious or having a panic attack: Read More

Many fail to realize the degree of subtly with nude photography. Thanks for the descriptions & examples! wolf189: As somebody who has a back ground and interest in mathematics, physics, mechanical engineering, computer programming & management I enjoy organizing (or trying to organize) my thoughts, my work etc … not obsessively but just enough to be able to label theses sectors and use...

Corwin Prescott: Advise to Future Photographers →
corwinprescott: I get a lot of questions on here related to how anyone person can make their photographs better, and I have given it a lot of thought as I used to be a pretty bad photographer. I am by no means the best photographer to ever live right now, but I don’t suck nearly as hard as I once did, and I…
Outing myself on Mother's Day to mom
So perhaps I should preferace this with the background. I have conservative parents, VERY conservative parents. They do come more conservative, just not frequently. Nudity is a bad thing, the body is sacred and only to be shared with the one you are married to. Clothing is modest, not very tight or form fitting and short sleeved with knee length skirts - minimum. I don’t remember ever...
My First Public Showing (NOT)
Many months ago (so long I cannot remember when) I was at a local grocery store chain (New Season’s) and noticed they had art work hanging up in the eating area. There was also a sign indicating that requests to show artwork should be directed to a service manager. I was able to get ahold of the right person later that week. Basically you signed up and when they have an opening you get...
Ok I was taking an early nap (it was my turn to be up at night with the youngest). I wake up to the strong smell of smoke. Now this is not that unusual actually, breakfast gets burned from time to time. The smell this time was a bit different though. At the same time my oldest, who has Asberger’s, was calm. An unusual event if there had been a fire. So the bedroom smells strongly of smoke...
Where is spring?
Woke up to the sound of the rain on the roof, a lot of rain. I have seen some signs of spring around (like the sun). It has been very wet here in Portland. I heard that March was one of the wettest on record. I’ve done a few outdoor shoots so far and the weather has not been the best (cold & wet). One of the things I like about living in Portland is the variety to the weather. We get sun...

New computer Time?
So I was working on some images for a client - senior picture stuff. I got the Nik Complete collection add-ins for Lightroom this year and was doing some work with them. Oh my word - talk about a performance drain. My computer is a couple of years old (Vista, Core 2 Due, 2GB RAM) The menus took liek 30 seconds to react to something - not cool. So I am looking into a new computer. Actually...
