Small Facelift to PuckettPages.com

puckett-pages-free-stock-photos

puckett-pages-free-stock-photosI gave the site a bit of a facelift today, making it a bit easier to get around, find and download photos.  One of the main changes is the categories on the home page where you can click on the photo or link of the category you want to view and it takes you straight there.  Kind of a visual menu for you to use.

I’ve also added a Facebook  “like”  button to all of the photo and category pages.   If you like a photo, click the like button.  You can also share a page through facebook also.

Beisdes some other minor cosmetic changes, that’s about all for now.

Hope you enjoy your visit to PuckettPages.com Free stock photos website. :)

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.

CheeseBox 1.0 for Photographers and Parents

I have been photographing babies and toddlers for a while now and it has always been a challenge to get and keep their attention.   The get bored quickly and want to move on to other things.  I have tried many things and thought about it for a long time and then an idea came to me.  This idea has been created into an Android app I call CheeseBox.  I created the app with babies and toddlers in mind.  CheeseBox keeps baby’s and toddlers attention better than I had ever dreamed.

You can see it on the Google Play App Market Here.
cheesebox-300The CheeseBox Android app displays colorful faces and or colorful shapes all while playing sound effects that keeps the child interested.  I have tested this app with many babies and toddlers and it has worked everytime.  The app gets their attention immediately when held close to their face.   Once you have their attention, you back away slowly until you have your Android device close to your camera lens.  Snap your photo while they are still looking the the CheeseBox screen.  It’s kind of a 21st century “look at the birdie”.

Of course the baby or toddler will get bored if the app just showed one picture so every time you tilt the Android device from left to right, a new picture is displayed along with a new sound effect.  This keeps the baby or toddler interested and it does work very well.   I’ve even been able to take photos of crying and fussing babies and toddlers who stop crying or fussing as soon as they see and hear CheeseBox.  They will laugh and smile at some of the pictures and that is the time to snap your photo.

CheeseBox will work with just about any Android device, smart phone or tablet.  If your device doesn’t support the tilting action, you can tap the screen for a new picture and sound effect.  You will get a new picture and sound effect for every tap.

I created CheeseBox to be super easy to operate so you can concentrate on getting your photo or portrait.  No fancy or elaborate controls to fiddle with.   You bring up the app, tap “select faces” or tap “select shapes” and it begins.  You tilt the device left or right to get a new photo and sound.  It’s as easy as that.

You can go to the Google app store and see it for yourself

If you have any questions about it, you can ask here or at my Pucktronics.com website.

CheeseBox is a must for any photographer or parent that regularly takes photos or portraits of babies or toddlers!
