Question   I love your photography!
A Facebook friend told me about your web site (she raved about it, actually), and now I can see why. I really love your work and I bookmarked your site so I can check it a lot. I wish we lived close enough to your area to hire you and your team but we

Question   The Crossing
Your pictures of the re-enactment are great!!!!!!!!!! Even with the big crowds it looks like your the only one there with the actors, right in the action, and you made me feel like I was there too. I wish I lived near the place becase I'm a history buff. You should send them to someone involved with it becuase theyre that good!

  Answer Blue Horseradish, It really dpdnees on the offer send me a link to the page you're thinking of either through the comments here or email and I'll give you a more exact answer. For now I'll try to answer it without knowing te value each form is offering. For any form, think of it in terms of the value for the person that has gone through the trouble of filling out your form. What will get get out of it? It's that value that you want to connect with the call to action button. So for a contact form the value might be that a prospect knows how much it's going to cost him or her. In that case a good call to action button that would beat the socks off of submit would be Get Your Free Quote or Get a Quote Now In both of these examples we've leaned on the value of a quote and turned up the dial by adding words like FREE, Now and Your.

Question   Cool pics!
I dont usually put comments on websites but I had to this time. I never saw pictures like alot of yours. my pics are so boring. Maybe you could do a blog or articles for beginers like me? I look for stuff online but they get so technical. Your probably busy but I thought I would mention it anyway just in case. Have a great day!

- Katie Rosenfeld October 02, 2009

  Answer Thanks, Katie! And it's a great idea. In fact, I can't say the name yet, but I'm actually in the process of writing a fun, upbeat, easy-to-understand newspaper column about photography, geared toward beginners and people who want to take picture-taking to the next level. I'm writing it for a brand-new newspaper that will also have an online version. When the first issue goes to press (some time in October), I'll respond back with the link to the online version once I get the green light from my editor. The column will run in every issue, and it will be fun to read. So, good timing for your suggestion! :)

Question   Gorgeous!
I told you Id be back! I can't believe how many new pictures you posted since I last visited. I love the "Ortons" of that old house - color and black n white. And you added construction art - very cool! Makes me look at construction sites in a new way. Keep up the great work. I'm a fan.

Question   Your photos
I really love your style. Some of your perspectives are so unique. How did you ever capture that heron with its mouth open and looking like it's smiling? And your sunrises with those reflections. Makes me want to live wherever you took those pictures.

- Todd Goldberg June 16, 2009

  Answer Thank you very much!

- Karen Rosenblum  July 04, 2009

  Answer Oops, forgot to answer your question about the heron: Lots of patience, fast shutter speed, lots of frames per second, and luck! ;)

Question   Black and white pictures
I love your black and whites so much that whenever I look at your site again I check to see if you have new ones, and I think that every time you add a new one, it's even better than the last. I don't know if you're taking classes, but if you are, you are definitely showing improvement. Do you use Photoshop or do you shoot them in black and white?

- Mike from California March 24, 2009

  Answer Thanks Mike! Not taking classes, but I wish I were. I have so much still to learn. Always will. I use PS (CS3) and various other applications and plugins. None of my images are shot in B&W, ever. They're converted in separate channels, sometimes with filters, sometimes not, and sometimes I use multiple processes. Depends on the final look I'm going for. Thanks again! :)

Question   Pretty!
Hi Karen. I was at the counter at your local camera shop while you were there recently, and I saw your web site when the person who worked there asked to see your HDR pictures, so I peeked, and then I went online later for another look. I really like your style. I like how you don't just "take a picture." You really do let us see the world through your eyes.

Question   Very nice pictures!!!!!
I found your website through Better Photo where I'm taking online classes, and I loved almost every single picture I saw, especially the sunrises, how you captured the mood and made me feel like I was there, even though I'm pretty sure I was sleeping at the time! Did you go to school for photography? If so, where. I'm in southeastern Pa., maybe not far from you, so I'd love to know if you went to a good school or whatever (I also love the soothing music on your slide shows too. Different songs for each category - cool!)

- Fannie McAlister January 08, 2009

  Answer Thank you for saying such nice things, Fannie! If you felt like you were "there," then I guess I did something right! :)

No, I didn't go to photography school or take any photography courses in college (I hadn't discovered my passion for it back then). I've learned (and continue to learn) by shooting, observing others, reading, researching, and most of all, shooting! I have photographer friends who have mentored me, I belong to a camera club, I've taken workshops, attended seminars and conferences, and I devour books and magazines on all things photography, including the basics, advanced techniques, post-processing, creative processing, studying the greats and so much more. I like to buy books from well-regarded and experienced photographers, especially those who include field notes by their images, which is very helpful when trying to figure out "how did they do that?" But mostly, I get out there and photograph as much as I can, experimenting with different settings, lenses, tubes, converters, filters, lighting and combinations, and making images of the same subject from different angles, or even from only one foot in either direction, which can make all the difference in the world. I also try to "think outside the [camera] bag" if you'll forgive the phrase. :) All that said, there are many good schools in your area that offer day and evening photography and related classes. If you'd like help in finding some, feel free to email me via the Contact link.

Thanks again!

Question   Digital or film?
Your images are beautiful. Do you shoot film or digital?

- Chris Higgins December 19, 2008

  Answer Thank you for your kind words. I now shoot in digital format only. Today's technology has brought the quality of digital capture to such great levels that digital shooters are able to make and print images that are indistinguishable from film.
