New Photo Website

E-mail Print PDF

I'm trying out a new website for my galleries on Zenfolio.  Why am I doing this after using Photoshelter for several years?  The Photoshelter site is great for displaying images, but terrible for SEO and web traffic.  My website traffic has dropped off to next to nothing, and if no one can find you, no one will buy from you.  I've heard a lot of good things about Zenfolio, and so far it looks like it lives up to expectations.  We'll see as I migrate galleries over the next month or so.

You can see the new site here bobclarkphotography.zenfolio.com

Another New Year!

E-mail Print PDF

Here we are starting another year and who knows what this will will hold for each of us.  We are seeing new trends in equipment and I hope we see new trends in professional photography as well.  I think many photo buyers are getting discouraged with crappy Royalty Free images from amateurs that turn out not to be a bargain at all.  I hope all photo buyers realize the value of dealing with a professional who has the wherewithal to invest in professional equipment.

Tell me what you think.  What trends do you see for 2014?

Artistic Experiment

E-mail Print PDF

I've been experimenting with a plugin for Photoshop by Topaz Labs called Simplify.  The plugin also works in Aperture.  I've used it in both programs and don't see much of a difference between the two.  The choice depends on the source photo you want to alter.  Use of the plugin in both programs does not alter the original photo.  In Aperture, it creates a new version.  In Photoshop, the alterations create new layers.

This tool alters a photograph to make it look like a painting, drawing or other artistic creation.  It comes with a number of easy to use presets, all of which can be modified to suit your taste.  I found it very easy to use and am quite pleased with the results.  Some of the altered photos can be found on my Photoshelter site in the Artistic Creations collection.  Click this link to take a look.

Here is one I particularly like of an old broken fishing net on a fence post, found along the banks of the Henry's Fork in Idaho.  If you would like a print of this photo, simply click on the photo to go to a checkout page where you can select the size, finish and other options.

Thanks for looking!
