    In my experience qualifications mean nothing.

    I think you have to ask yourself, what kind of person would pay for that
    level of skill?

  5. I think he meant _certifications_ mean nothing.

  8. I know what he meant.

    I don't have access to a scanner and have no intention of posting any
    of my old studio images. I am no longer in business and do not do any
    kind of portraiture...and I'm not trying to sell anything to anybody.

    But just to throw a little fuel on the fire, I also had some articles
    published in the PPA's official journal - The Professional Photographer
    and was mentioned once in The Rangefinder.

    Randall, you're crossing the line. Shhhhhh. One does not tell the
    world that there are "other" magazines out there that "other" people
    read about "other" things. For most people, Popular Photography is a
    great read, not one of those other magazine.

    I once asked a question about a problem I was having with ROES
    software. No one else used it and they couldn't figure out why I was
    using it. Now one lab has come online with the MODE package -- which
    is difficult at best.

    Many people, and you know they type I am talking about, over-tweak
    their images because they don't trust their labs to print them right.
    They'd rather spend hours tweaking rather than finding a good lab that
    can do fantastic prints.

    So Randall, shhhhh. It's a different world out there. Keep it that

    That's not true. It means that someone learned and followed The



    dadiOH's dandies v3.06...
    ....a help file of info about MP3s, recording from
    LP/cassette and tips & tricks on this and that.
    Get it at

    It means nothing in terms of style and quality. It means you passed a
    reasonable level of competence.

  12. For some reason, I was getting Popular Photography for a couple of
    years. It's since stopped, but for a while, it was free. What a piece
    of crap! And it's always been that way. Some guy sets the self timer,
    throws the camera in the air, and that's considered great art. About
    95% of the rag consists of ads.
    I know what ROES is. My lab uses it. The current version works pretty
    good. I get uncorrected prints from my lab.
    Oh yeah. When I was in business in pre-digital days, there were a lot
    of studio owners who created images especially for competition. Their
    daily stuff was crap, but boy, those prints sure looked good at

    Surely, some pictures would make your point, far better than telling them?

    Telling people you're published, have awards, experience, cannot replace the
    impact of even a single picture. You're here to help others - aren't you?

  14. Sorry, the motivation factor just ain't there. My current photography
    site has relatively current images of mine. Portraiture there would
    serve no useful purpose. If you can't tell that I know what I'm doing
    from looking at those images, then your sense of discernment needs some

    You know your way around a camera - if only that were that simple!

    A missed opportunity.

    You're lucky. If you could tell what I REALLY do from looking at MY photos,
    I'd have to kill you.................

    Yeah photography sure makes it easier to explain away the occasional high
    power spotter scope on a tripod eh?

    Only a moron would call a wedding photographer a "moron."

    Now isn't this a familar line from the soon to be imortalized Randal
    It seems to me that you move from one group to another as a self
    proclaimed "EX" Professional photographer but oddly enough, the only
    mention of you when doing a deep search of Google is a string of posts
    with your self proclomation in them.

    By all means Randall participate on Usenet and make suggestions but if
    you can't substanciate any of them as having any base other than your
    opinion, don't try to reinforce that opinion with a load of codswallop
    about how good you used be.
