Do I have enough pixels?

OK, the question about pixels and print size has resurfaced. To help you determine if you have enough of the correct pixels to print large, simply follow this link to Photo Kaboom. This site has some MATH but it is not hard. Any questions please ask. I think everyone should be able to get 16 x 20s out of their photos.

Food Session at Gwinnett Tech

foodToday was an adventure in food land. It wasn't too bad, however it will take some practice! Here is my first attempt at the food thing. Ok I changed the photo. This one looks a little darker after putting it on flickr.

A little fun with food photography

These guys are not exactly good instructors and it would be wise to listen to Ms. Harkins, but nevertheless I thought a little humor would be good for this weeks session.

Pocket WatchThe jewelry capture was a task. My intention was to fill the frame with the pocket watch but did I get a surprise; I needed a telephoto. After discussing this with Ms. Harkins I decided to go with a wide angle, knowing that the distortion could be a problem. I did a lot of twisting and turning to remove as much of the distortion as I could while still trying to fill the frame. Finally, I got close to what I wanted, and the lens ended up about two or three inches from the watch. After all this I had exposure and focus problems and most likely will re-shoot the watch. This is the photo - your comments are welcome.

Fashion at the Lake Today!

Darren L. Carroll, Gwinnett Tech Photography, Lake Lanier, Old TruckI ran across this matching pair today and well I just had to share it with you. Sorry about the quality but they caught me off guard and I was set to shoot across the water. I tried to get readjusted but they were leaving or passing by so I had to get this before they left.
truckHere is another pic from the trip. I have several I will be editing. Check the flickr by clicking here.

Wine, Beer and Spirits

Darren Carroll, Gwinnett Tech PhotographyThis is an approximation or draft you might say of my WBS shoot. Well actually this is the second shoot. The first was bad, very bad. You might think I actually had some of the JD before I took the photo.

Jose and Bianca in Toonland

Jose and BiancaThought I would try my hand at some of the filters today. I changed the background to hopefully make it appear like toonland. well kind of anyway. I just have to see what these filters will do.


Athens - RR TrestleThis is one of the only photos from the Athens trip. I thought I would try to give it a vintage look just for giggles. I have a few more I will put on the flickr.
