Photo Requests: Let Me Know What You Need

old-rusting-amish-buggy

old-rusting-amish-buggySo you looked all over my site and can’t find exactly what you need.  I’m going to do something most sites won’t.  Since I’m giving away my photos and I take photos all the time, just let me know what you are looking for and I will try to get you what you need.

I can’t guarantee I can get the exact photo you’re asking for but it never hurts to try.  Just let me know what you are looking for and I will go out and try to capture it for you and put it up on the site.  I can only do this as time permits so i may not be able to produce the photo right away but if I know what you are looking for, the next time I’m out on a photo shoot (which is very often), I will try to get you what you need.

I don’t do many model photos but have occasionally.  These usually will cost me money though sometimes please try to limit those requests.  Other than that, most other topics are open.

These will be photos that I setup and take myself so they will always be free for you to use and you won’t have to worry about licensing or copyright.  The photos will be up here on the site for everyone to use.

I size all of the full size photos on PuckettPages.com to be 2100×1500 or close to that unless the photo is cropped.  The beginning size of most photos i take are 4200 for the width but I size it down to 2100 for easy web loading and downloading.  If you need a larger size than 2100, I can do it.  Just put that in your request.

To request a photo, just enter a comment below or contact me through the contact page at the top.  I will try to help you out where I can by taking  the photos you need.

Very Useful Photo Editing Books

We would like to think we know everything there is about anything we try to do.  Photo editing is no exception.  I know a lot about photo editing but I still learn new things everyday.  There is always something to learn.  That’s where books come into play.  There is always some new trick or way to do things that we may not have thought of but someone else has.

Digital Wedding Secrets

digital-wedding-secrets

If you have ever wanted to or even thought about getting into wedding photography, you will be completely lost when you get into the middle of an event unless you’ve studied as a helper or an apprentice of an accomplished wedding photographer.  You may be able to pick up on a few things but there is a lot going on during a wedding shoot and you must make sure you know what every next step is going to be, what poses you and your customer want, make sure your camera settings are correct for the lighting (outdoors and dark light during the wedding with most).  You also must set your flash up correctly so you don’t get blurry shots but they shouldn’t be washed out and flat looking.  What can you do to get a jump on all of that information you need to know?
