  1. Re: Best Practices for Presenting Work to Local X (X = galleries, shows, clubs, etc.)

    Thank you so much for the very kind words and advice Merg. I really appreciate them.

    I've decided to prepare two 11x14 portfolio boxes of my best work, printed in 8x10 and window matted, and...

    Re: Images of Mistakes Good or Bad (everything else)

    I meant to take two double-exposures, and instead took a single quadruple-exposure. It's almost certainly better than the two double-exposures works have been. Minolta XD11 with a 58mm f/1.4 lens...

    Re: post alternative techniques

    Here's an octopus lumen print. This was a 2-3 hour exposure on 16x20 Ilford Warmtone RC paper, which I fixed and toned in selenium. Unlike the squid diptych above, these colors are "real".

    Indeed, we have a photography club/gallery that I haven't joined and an active arts district with at least a dozen galleries.

    All,

    What is the current best practice for presenting one's portfolio to local galleries for potential sale, local shows for inclusion, or local clubs for discussion?

    Re: Lens for nude shoot

    I use a 125mm and 210mm for my shoots. A 360mm would be way long and difficult to work with, in my humble opinion. This is double-true if you and/or the model are inexperienced.

    They changed their listing -- it used to be listed as a "Sinar" brand.
