I suspect it is a plug in for LR.

Unless you want to change because of specific lens/ancillary related issues or the desire to become more of a main stream photographer then keep your Pentax. It clearly does what you want it to do.

If you do decide to change and you still want to alter images the way you do, do it in processing. Not only will it be more flexible, you also won't have to go through the painful in camera processing malarky.

I was looking for something like folio book really Dave. But offered an export option.

Thanks 2MATO. I haven't looked at keynote at all... I will see what it has to offer.

Also, shooting at ISO 100 may also be part of the issue. Shooting at 100, 50 or below can cause an image to soften. Cameras are designed to be used at ISO 200 as standard.

You may find that they did just return the photos and use focus as a broad brush excuse. Stock photography is quite difficult to get into, you really have to tailor the images you offer to their specific needs. They employ an army of trend experts who work out what images the stock library needs at a given time. Be sure to keep on top of their needs! I looked at it once and got told that they were only after corporate type photos of individuals or groups. That throws up all sorts of issues, model releases, limited scope etc. So I Hun up my stock dreams there and then and settled on my real loves within photography.

I have thought about this, but I am not a fan of PowerPoint at all. It's probably something to do with being in the military and being bored to absolute death by thousands of slides over the years. :) I was after something that oozed professionalism and looked fantastic. Something smooth and easy to use. There are some great iPad apps out there, but they seem to be solely for iPad viewing, you cannot export them.

Great critique. It's nice to see someone offering a critique as I have only been on this forum for a day and it seems that people praise EVERYTHING!

The lead in line and rule of thirds is a great point. It all comes with practise, before you know it you aren't thinking about it at all and you look at everything like its a prospective photo.

That's all I could suggest really. Think about the rule of thirds and apply it to number one. The way you have used the foreground interest is great, it just needs a compositional tweak! :)

The other images look like they have been taken from standing. Think about the things that you need to include in landscape photography, foreground interest, lead in lines etc. I can see plenty of foreground interest in some of your images that you could have utilised if you had adjusted the height at which you took the image.

I need to create a series of portfolios that can be accessed across a wide range of media. There are some great iPad apps out there that you can use to show your portfolio through this medium but I was after something I can use on my iMac and my iPad to create/view interactive and branded portfolios that can be exported and emailed around without losing the visual effect. Apps like "folio book" look fantastic but I am not sure they enable me to export the portfolio to send to people.

If anyone knows of anything that would be of use, your help would be much appreciated.

Good Afternoon.

After bumping into two photographers whilst taking my dogs for a walk the other day they recommended I joined this website. My initial question was about photography clubs in the Hampshire/Wiltshire area, but there doesn't seem to be any! So, anyone around the Tidworth/Salisbury area feel free to get in touch.

I have been a photographer for a few years now and I am also a serving soldier in the British Army. This has given me no end of opportunity since my regiment and other aspects of the forces have employed me to cover a huge range of different things, from sport to social to my most recent addition, 6 months in Afghanistan with my D700, which I returned from in October. Next year I aim to move to the army photography team and make photography my full time profession.

I am a new father (my daughter was born halfway through my tour), so I am busy learning the "job" and snapping shots of her wide eyed, smiley face. So expect to be inundated with shots of her!

I am looking forward to meeting like mind people and hopefully utilising the forum to improve my work and help improve others.
