UP engagement session

Just about the most adorable thing! DWF posted a terrific story today about the engagement photo session for Lynnette and James that was inspired by their favorite movie, "UP" shot by Wild Flowers Photos.

memory in a flash

What kind and brand of memory do you use? I'm all CF and a variety of brands. Never had one tank on me (knock on wood!) and since I don't shoot much sports, write speed hasn't mattered too much to me. What works for you and why?!?!


Recently entered some of these pix into a local review/contest. What do you think? (click on thumbnails for larger versions)

too perfect?

Are we going too far "fixing" people in photographs? Too much skin smoothing and teeth whitening? Too much eye poppin', sharpening, clarity, too much whites in the whites of their eyes? What do you think? Should we all use Photoshop brand toothpaste?
