happy holidays

As 2007 draws to a close, it's clear that a lot of the face of photography on the Web has changed.

Where once Glamour Models, Garage Glamour and Web Models were the hotshots, it's now Model Mayhem and its ilk.

Where photographers discussed equipment and techniques in forums, they're now blogging (like this one). And where traffic was driven by content, it's now all about the advertising you can deliver.

So, I guess I'm old-fashioned. I still prefer to have photos on display and hope that people will find some joy in them. Every now and again, I hear from somebody who's moved to do something about it. Like the young lady from the Dayton area who hopes to come to NE Ohio and shoot with me. Or the woman who's going to meet me in Toledo for a shoot.

Also, Nikki Crome and Ami S. (from Chicago and Georgia, respectively) came in recently to work on some pregnancy photos for Ami. Nikki had a concept she wanted to work on, while Ami and I had some ideas. So, we all got together and had a fine old time doing a raft of different work.

I'll be posting a portfolio of what we accomplished together after the new year. Suffice it to say, it's a different look, but one that I think fits in well with the notion of celebrating women with photography.

May all of you enjoy the holidays and have a wonderful New Year!
