    Good Photos Vs. Bad Photos?

    I make slideshow videos of my photos when I travel which I put on you tube. I have received a few compliments on them but one guy left a nasty comment. I have not had any photography training so my judgment as to what distinguishes a good photo from a bad one may be flawed. I...

    I have a question- I'm looking into buying a

    strobe light for an on-location shoot I'm doing. We are doing the shoot on an island so that the city on the mainland will be in the background. The shoot will be at night so the city lights are visible... But obviously the subjects need to be illuminated since this will be at...
