Photographer Highlight: Harold Ross

Last Chance Garage - Harold Ross

No worries, the Points of View Photo Project will return next week. Please visit last week’s post for the source image and give it a shot!

I’ve been in real need of some creative inspiration lately and I have been feeling an urge to experiment with new techniques as I continue to discover my vision and refine my craft. One of my “go-to” places is the member portfolios over at NAPP. There is a wide collection of styles over there and I can usually find a few cool shots here and there, though time doesn’t usually permit much lingering to really take it in.

4 Exciting Photo-Related Plans in the Works

With all the attention in the photo industry focussed on what’s going to be happening down in Orlando this week at Photoshop World it can be easy to forget about all the other great things going on in other regions of the community. Now, I love Photoshop World and NAPP and I look forward to when I can make my way back to one soon. But I want to make sure you are all aware of some really cool plans coming up here at Jason D. Moore Photography.

Guest Post: Your Camera Called – It Wants a Photographer Upgrade – by Kevin Halliburton

If you are like me, you have been shopping for newer and better image making gear in the last 12 months. Maybe you aren’t spending your money at the moment but you have probably at least been enviously tracking some of the latest developments, and wow, have there been some developments! Camera intelligence is rocketing forward at an amazing rate.

It leaves me wondering, when will cameras become intelligent enough to start shopping for better photographers? Think about that possibility for a moment. What upgrades would your camera be shopping for if it was in the market for a photographer upgrade?

This is an actual exercise I give myself at least once a year. I make a photographer upgrade wish list for my camera then I go shopping for the training, information and disciplines I need to better meet those specs.

Points of View Photo Project #29

Points of View Photo Project #29 - Source ImageWelcome back for another week of the Points of View Photo Project!

This week, in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, we’re taking another look at the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge that I featured the other day. Shot in Northern Ireland on March 18 2005 while I was on vacation to the region my grandmother’s family was from.

After looking through the different entries this week, be sure to download the images for next time – offered by our regular contributor, Hendrik Demey from Belgium. They are “three bracketed images (+/- 2EV), taken this winter on the domain of a local small castle.”

Enjoy this week’s images and I hope you will join us next week!
