Time for a portfolio review. JC Mendez, DVFX Studios. Fix your menus a bit, lead with your strongest photo in each category. Great work, not too many photos in each category, but do pare down a few to make the best ones stand out.

Back to me for some questions:

-what was your worst traveling experience? Driving through Europe and putting diesel in their car and broke down.

-best advice for posing yourself in pictures? Using your camera app on your phone, tether and use your computer as your monitor, use a timer, focus using a stand in to focus.

-what do you do when lacking inspiration for a project and time is running out? Just shoot until you happen upon something that works, or shoot collaboratively.

    The submissions were all stunning – a fantastic display of talent !
    Tony, on the issue of focusing: “for me, its always on me – the star”
    Jim’s photo – totally nailed pandering.
    Kyle Wolfe paid us a visit 😉
    Glad you’re liking the 12yo Jemmie, Siobh, it’s my fav. 😉 Hungry seems in good form.
    Tony: “I don’t have any real flowers in my life – I’ve killed them all”.
    Diesel in a petrol car ? Yikes !
    Tony defines the noun “Farrier”. Someone who puts flower on a horse’s feet ?
    An insight into male psychology: “guys like to see multiple things they like together…”
    Chelsea lets the cat out of the bag: ” Siobhán’s spirit is only partially in this dimension “.
    I knew that 😉
    Thanks
