    I must admit occasionally I too give photos away, but usually it is a marketing tactic and I am doing it to create future sales. Occasionally I will do some free work for not for profit organisations. This has two benefits – an obvious one for the organisation, and another whereby I strengthen the community image of my brand.

    HDR needs to be done with restraint, however if done properly it can increase the dynamic range in a photograph making it feel more natural. Given the high dynamic range in RAW files these days, creating a HDR using bracketed images is not as necessary. Some well applied dodging and burning is far more effective and is less likely to result in the blown out fake effect you see in a lot of HDR images.

    I looks very average at best. Alot of the images need to be white balanced and most of the snow images look underexposed – he hasn’t compensated for his cameras meter when exposing for snow. Compositon wise, they are ok, but some are lacking a focal point or a subject of interest. I would say he is amateur at best, but not someone I would pay for his services based on the images you linked to.

    You can buy likes. There are programs where you can pay money and have thousands of fake likes added to your page.

    Have long been a fan of the site. I remember in my early days I too tried to drown my work in photoshop filters and the like to improve my images – I thought this was artistic at the time. Am starting an advanced diploma in commercial photography this year so hopefully it will take my skills further. 🙂

    Understanding exposure by Brian Peterson would have to be my favourite when it comes to technique. Easy to understand for both skilled and beginning photographers.
