Might be cheaper to find others on eBay...I got two of the top of the range units (solaflash600) plus stands plus cases plus other bits (included a flash meter) for £120....hardly looked used. I got other units a lot cheaper. You have been unlucky.....I got my first two Solaflash 300 units 20 odd years ago and they have been the most troublesome...I've had to replace a fuse in one about five years ago....

If you are using PC you can download Serif Photoplus Starter edition free of charge forever. It does 94% of what 96% of photoshop users require :-) . That is an absolute fact as I just made it up! This will be made available forever as fact now as it is on the world wide web :-)

Those of you who intently follow the Gregorian Calendar will be smart enough to know that next friday 5th is the first friday of the month and hence we have a Frolic ! Hip Yip I hear you say.

The theme will be Film Noir on the cheap.

How to get the look at a fraction of the cost of serious Fresnel lights.

Wiki: Though film noir is often identified with a visual style, unconventional within a Hollywood context, that emphasizes low-key lighting and unbalanced compositions,[8] films commonly identified as noir evidence a variety of visual approaches, including ones that fit comfortably within the Hollywood mainstream.[9] Film noir similarly embraces a variety of genres, from the gangster film to the police procedural to the gothic romance to the social problem picture—any example of which from the 1940s and 1950s, now seen as noir's classical era, was likely to be described as a "melodrama" at the time.[img]http://images.purestorm.com/z-images7/imageupload15/photovibestudio_4601317.jpg?594811911[/img]

Another thing to consider is that many photographers regard models who are able to shoot in their own homes to be much more reliable. Less chance of them cancelling at the last minute or no-showing altogether. Which generally makes such models more readily bookable.

Whereas expecting that same model to travel to a location - studio or wherever - doesn't present the same level of assurance regarding her potential reliability.

So it's not so much that the photographer is seeking to save on costs by shooting in her home (other than those which he might incur if he booked a studio and the model no-showed), but moreso that he's seeking to minimise his chances of being let down.

I'm quite happy to experiment with some of the fringe makes of film....but they seem to have disappeared in 120 format!!

I have just put a roll of HP5 through the new Bronica and deved it and it is drying at the moment.....results look promising from a casual inspection.....maybe all the comments about the Bronica PS lenses being very underrated are true!!

This is really a very common issue, so common that I don't think many people don't post about it as it is the norm.

I recently worked with a 2 models (separate shoots) who were very nice to work with, we produced some website content and both girl liked the work I was producing, One has not asked for images, but made a note on twitter, a month after, and as other people said I don't have to send her anything, after all she was paid (and paid or not) I hold the copyright.

The second model had a look at my other work, and saw several images she liked and wanted to recreate and asked me if I would shoot her portfolio. I said "yes, that would be nice" but then there was a silence and no mention of money. a week or two later she got back in touch, not only did she want me to pay [b]her[/b] for shooting, she also wanted me to cover her travel, and food... remember She want to recreate shots I already have and shoot her portfolio.

These are only 2 girls over the 10 years I been shooting.

The things is, things are very one sided when it does come to model, who are looking out solely for there own interests, we often here about their costs of travel, clothes and make up they will quickly forget photographers costs, time etc.

The best way to deal with it is to grow a thick skin, be polite, don't commit and never lose you temper during a shoot, or you will ruin the work from that shoot you are currently on. Never give anything away for free, you will recent it later.

It also needs Photoshop CS6 or higher to run it, and it's worth noting that many plug-ins are moving away from supporting older versions of PS so it's always a good idea to check before buying.



The version I have does not require Photoshop at all and even the 'Photoshop' version does not use Photoshop itself. That was stopped back around version 4 or 5. It does the job then returns the image to PS once sorted. This computer only has 5.1 but never had an issue with sending to and from PS with version 9 of OnOne. Do have a problem with OnOne if I try too much with it but considering this started as a XP machine and is nowhere near the minimum spec its a wonder the set up works at all. There is a free demo so time enough to find out and ask questions. They are pretty good at dealing with customer queries.

Hi I am new on here. I don't really have any experience of modelling but I am told I have a unique look. I have made a site of some photos though. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what they think. If I would be good as a mode Here is a link to my portfolio site- http://emmalightwing.wix.com/modelportfolio Also about 5 days ago I applied to storm model management and a few other big modelling agencies but I have not heard back yet? I was wondering if anyone else had applied to storm model management or another modelling agency online and if they could tell me how long it should take me to get a reply from them? Thankyou



It's very difficult to get into a decent model agency - if it was easy then we would all be signed to one (but then it would be much less special). I never applied for any because I don't have perfect hair/nails and my body shape isn't what they were looking for back when I started out. My way of guessing if I was going to be "agency standard" was to look at the girls they had on their books and I knew myself that going down the agency route would be a waste of time. Plus I was 22 at the time - normally their new faces are younger than that. So if you don't hear back from them don't be upset, they are extremely selective in who they take on. They can't respond or represent everybody who contacts them.

Agencies aren't the "be all" and end all - What will stand you in good stead is learning the ropes a little.

As mentioned you do look a little uncomfortable in your current images, but thats to be expected - its pretty daunting to have a stranger take your picture especially if you are not used to it and don't yet know what looks best photographically.

It may be worth casting for a photographer and setting aside a budget to pay for them. There are some fabulous photographers on here who charge a fraction of what places like venture and highstreet studios cost for a "portfolio" plus they may be able to help you in terms of direction and advice.

I ocassionally shoot people and my advice is always "just do what you like, if it looks crap then we delete it" - Move around, don't be afraid to pull daft expressions. The more you move and change expression the better chances are that you have a varied selection of images to look through after the shoot. Thats the best way for you to learn wht works for you and what doesn't - variety. All models have their favourite poses or expressions and angles to be shot from - you just have to learn yours and to do that you need to study images of yourself or study yourself in the mirror.

The good thing is people can see what you look like from your portfolio, they aren't heavilty edited.

Work with the best people you can, and they will bring out the best in you.

good luck

And following on from a post I saw on FB this morning... a 'silent' mode would be handy (the EOS 7 (35mm film) had this years ago whereby they made the mirror move slowly in order to reduce the 'thud' of it).

I've just flicked through the image uploads as far back as 10th November and couldn't find anything that particularly jumped off the page as being any better than what's there already. So perhaps people just need to upload better images and maybe then the rotations will happen much more quickly



I just did the same and Bar a few exceptions ( which i can count on one hand ) I have to agree, IMHO of course....

You might think your item is on EBay but it is almost impossible to report it. They hide all contacts and if you use their email system it bounces you out.

Ebay do not want to know. The police might be interested. If your items are insured then your insurance company might act depending on how sure you are.

Good or bad shape, work for male models is limited. how important that factor is though depends on the work you are looking for of course. A lot of stock photography for example will be more about expression face and personal grooming. Photographers would be looking for a model with a good sense of personal styling and ideally clothes to match the mood or theme they are creating. Those into Cosplay I presume would consider authentic outfits above physique.

Obviously you only have one selfie to go by but you do not look unfit. Remember that in the photographs you have seen the photographer will have carefully positioned lights to enhance things like the models abs. The model too will also pump themselves up with a brief burst of exercise and know what poses further enhance their muscle.

Personally I would not hold out great hopes on a site like this, which is mainly glamour. If you are serious look through magazines and papers to see where the real modelling work is happening. Make notes of the photographers getting into print with what interests you then consider direct contact.

I agree with the above. Some nice shots.

A couple of things to look out for though:

1. your model feels a bit cramped within the frame to me - especially the lingerie shots. Maybe give her a little more space in future.

2. your lingerie model's skin looks a little flushed (with the exception of your main image) - too much red IMO. Setting the camera's white balance to flash whilst in the studio will help with that.

3. Your logo is a distraction IMO. Something more subtle perhaps?

All the best
