Question   Photoshop
Do you ever use Lightroom? What is the best "portrait" touch up software that is good to use. Thanks!

- Deanna Davis May 06, 2012

  Answer Hi Deanna,
I still use Photoshop CS5 with a few plug in filters and recently started using Portrait Professional for portraits which works very well.

  Answer Brad & Lynn - We may be a bit biased but have to say that these neatogrophsrhipforce what we already knew, Sarah and Steve are obviously very much in love and made for one another. They are a beautiful couple both inside and out and Lynn and I are very excited that Steve, Jake and Sam are part of our family. We love all of the photos and can see why Steve and Sarah picked Deborah as the photographer for the wedding. Brad's favorite is four rows down and on the right side and Lynn will be sending in her own message as well. We Love you all very much.June 29, 2011 10:39 am

Question   Your photos are awesome
I am a newbie to photography. I have always had the passion. I just recently purchased a Sony a230 and am having a blast with it. So any suggestions on equipment and lighting would be greatly appreciated. I really enjoy looking at your gallery, you have some really awesome photos. I found you through better photo as I am currently taking some classes through them. Glad I found your site.

- Phyllis K. Cholewinski May 20, 2010

  Answer Thank you Phyllis,
I hope one of the classes you are taking is an Exposure class as it is the basis of all that is photography. It takes study, practice & experimentation - but it is a fun learning curve. I often would take an exposure/composition class along with a Photoshop class as I feel the need to master both aspects is important to create the images I want. Enjoy the journey :)
Love in Light,

Question   Peek a Boo
Hey Carlton, I love how you respond to quest's questions. You are always so cool and polite! I have a couple more, how much does it cost to sell your prints through zenfolio? They sound great and the work is a high quality from your comments. Stay in touch. Any upcoming trips planned?

- Teresa Stokes December 14, 2009

  Answer Hello Teresa,
If you have an account with Zenfolio, it doesn't cost anything to sell your prints, thats what they do to get your business along with providing a space to display them. You buy any prints according to the standard MPIX prices but when you create a pricelist, your customers will pay for the prints they order at the price you set with the profits credited to your account. I have different pricelists according to different criteria like my fine art stuff sells for more than my wedding pics. I even have a pricelist for just cost for galleries of my friends that I dont want to make $$ from :) They will still pay for the prints & shipping, so its easy for me that I dont have to deal with orders, printing, shipping & money collection.
See you soon Teresa...
Love in Light,

Question   Macro photography
I notice you have a macro ring light. I'm thinking about getting one but wanted to get some testimonials first. Any thoughts? Do you use it much?
Thanks...great work and inspiration.
Chet in Rochester, NY
PS I was also wondering about your experience in selling photos through Zenpholio. Have you checked out other sources? Do you like Zenpholio?

- Chester Scerra November 03, 2009

  Answer Hello Chet,
I bought a Promaster Ring Light as my local camera store didn’t have the Canon MR-14 in stock and it is OK but has a design flaw in that the power switch gets easily switched ON when I put it in my camera bag so I have to remove the batteries after each use. I would like to eventually get the MT-24EX. I use mine a lot with my 100mm macro lens and I always use a tripod as even ¼ inch movement will change the area of focus. I do love macro photography. Canon just released a new 100mm f/2.8L IS macro lens. I don’t see that much difference to consider upgrading but have thought about upgrading to the Canon 180mm Macro L lens to give me a bit more working room.

I love my Zenfolio site. I bought a Canon PixmaPro 9000 printer but it died after a few months and with the cost of quality paper & inks, I decided to start ordering all my prints online. Plus the fact that my printer cannot compete with the quality on the $25,000 printers that MPIX/Zenfolio & other pro printing places use. Zenfolio makes it very easy for me as I can create several pricelists and Zenfolio takes the orders from my customers and collects the $$, makes the prints (which are absolutely beautiful) and ships them directly to the customer – then they deposit my profits to my account. I don’t have to hassle with paypal, printing shipping, etc.. Also my printer would only print up to 13x19 and you can order large poster sized prints through Zenfolio.

BTW – I saw Frank Zappa at the War Memorial in Rochester back in the late 80’s 

Thanks for visiting my site Chet.

- Lisa Tyler August 09, 2009

Question   Love your galleria
Hi Carlton, hope you got my answer to your 1DS tiff vs CR files. I took a run through your galleria and all I can say is "WOW!" Really beautiful!
Hope you love your 1DS as much as I loved mine. I just sold it last week and bought a 5D MkII. Nothing wrong with the 1DS, just really heavy with HUGE batteries to carry around! Took the camera, eight batteries and charger all over Italy for a monthy. Came home with great pics and large biceps!!

- Lynn Andrews June 16, 2009

  Answer Yes Lynn,
I did get your email and Thank you very much. You have a beautiful gallery & I can only hope I can get the incredibly beautiful captures that you created with your 1Ds :)
I added you as a favorite so I can keep up with your work.
Thank you again Lynn - Blessings,

Question   Your Gallery
I just browsed through your gallery, and I really like your images. You have a wide variety of talent that I enjoy.

- Amanda D. Austwick March 05, 2009

  Answer Thank you Amanda,
I don't really have a specialty so I shoot most anything and try to learn the challenges that different types of photography offer. I love landscape & nature but I also like portraits, macro, architecture, and people at play as well. Lately I have been doing more HDR photography and using Topaz filters. Infrared Photography is something I hope to delve into soon.
Thanks for visiting and come back soon.

Awesome country. Two islands with totally diff nature between North and South Islands. All four seasons from mild to extreme, live volcanoes, geysers, variety in peoples - a photographer's dream!

  Answer Someday Rosaleen,
I do have friends in Australia so I just need to go for a visit. New Zealand would be a great experience with so many beautiful places to photograph. I would just hope I can get enough time to cover as much of it as possible.
Cheers, Carlton
