Ahhh But Which one 2 Choose?

Ahhh But Which one 2 Choose?

sumetimes ya gots to lewk at lots an my easiest way is to do contact sheets:especially if ya are doing multiple shots in an afternoon or weekend photo shoot whatevr the case may be.


then i can lewk at em all lined up in a row etc :

then well, i can pick the one i want crop it edit and publish it for my clients portfolio then…so today frum Quarks Diana mc Dee Portfolio I brought u these.. Sumptimes i let my clients and or subjekts keep the negatives etc etc and rights to all the photos sometimes i do not, depends upon the deal i have with em.i have boxes full of stuff from various events and stuff i werk with, is a lot of fun after many years of camera in hand:) it jest becomes what it is,,at the end of the day ,,ya go through all ur pics and pic ur best shot, an make the next best move wit it.



…etc..etc.well,,, folks; sorting through all the shots an then pickin ur best shot: is the most fun filing it away or print it – publishin it er post it er what not is all part of a life story:most importantly is if ur subjekt is a person, well that thay are happy in the end:)
