Random Photo Quote: The technical aspects of photography - lighting, camera angles and background - have to be second nature, said Bachrach, because the real challenge is communication and getting the subject to mellow out.
"People hire me to take pictures of them that are flattering, so that's a prerequisite for the job," he said. "To do that, I have to get them to let their guard down, because people always put their guard up when there's a camera around. Then you can get great pictures."
He guaranteed that things like lighting and the precise camera angle must be chosen carefully, but affirmed that the expression is king. "And the only way to get that is to communicate with [the client.] It can't be just like photographing an inanimate object." Robert Bachrach -

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the snow on the mountain's rim,
I am the laughter in children's eyes,
I am the sand at the water's edge,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle Autumn rain,
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the star that shines at night,
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die.
John, we will miss you.
Help support your local camera store!
We are lucky enough to have 2 great full service camera stores that are local to our members.
Before buying on-line or from some chain store, how about giving them a chance at the deal. They have always been there for us, now it is our turn to be there for them, or next time you need something now, they may not be around.
Visit Silvio's Photoworks and Paul's Photo for new and used film & digital cameras, accessories, workshops, and all the other goodies real camera stores carry. You will sleep better at night knowing you did your part.
