Thanks to the advent of social media, I’ve shared hundreds of photos I’ve taken with friends and followers worldwide. Some of the photos are very popular and I’ll get asked if I sell my photos anywhere. Until very recently, the answer was no though I tried to work with the people who were interested in a particular photo.
Since I’m also a Web geek, I put together Foster’s Photos where my photos can be featured and high-resolution versions are available for download. Trying to make them available in various printed forms just didn’t make sense. I’d rather provide files that can be output at your favorite provider on your preferred medium.
In my photo archives, I have more than 10,000 photos. It takes a lot of time to sort through those photos to find the best to make available on the site. Right now the number of photos in the Photo Store is fairly small. New photos will continue to be added as I sort through the archives. While I don’t expect to have thousands of photos on the site, the number will increase as I identify my favorite photos and post them on the site.
Hi Foster, ISTR you use a Canon DSLR. As a Canon SLR/DSLR shooter of 25 years I would recommend you create a custom Picture Style based on Neutral, Faithfull or Standard and dial in settings 0,-4,0,0. This way you will get way more shadow (and highlight) detail in your images. You can always add a little contrast back in with your RAW editor, if necessary. You have some very nice images, but some of them appear to be way too high in contrast and lacking in shadow detail.
The photos posted so far were taken long ago with a couple of exceptions. All but one of them were before I started shooting in RAW. It will take me a long time to sort through the archives and get to the new stuff. Thanks for the suggestions.
