thats why i be salty. son. a lot of effort goes into my photoshoots and when someone takes those photos from me, it just pisses me off.
Taking from you and learning from you are two different things.
You're a good photographer, but a good photoshop guy as well. But NO ONE on this site is a pro and too good to not share tips with other people.
Guys can know your technique and not know how to execute.
No need to be salty either, no one is gonna take your $100 from your photoshoots.
I don't mean to beat a dead horse here and rather let dude just do him specially cause it seems like any slight comment directed his way he takes serious offense to it and it isn't even that serious... but I wanted to respond to him last night but didn't bother... but not to be on MyT (nuts) but he said everything I was pretty much going to say...
I'll just add the following... like I didn't understand why you mention being salty when all I said was that I don't recall you sharing tips and therefore I tried helping by providing a useful link. Also, like T said, you can share your tips, I like educating people at work, personal life, hobby, etc - sharing knowledge but it's up to the individual to take advantage of it and apply it AND for the most part they won't! You can go as far as taking someone to your shoot and they still won't apply it. So even if you shared how you was doing the rig shots, no one is going to take your jobs or nothing... some folks might find out its too much involved (time and money purchasing rigs) and not even bother. Which by the way, you have big ones for placing all that expensive equipment on those rigs but it pays off in the shots... see something I'm not too sure I could do.
You did share some lighting tips/set-up, shared a picture of your rig (I don't recall seeing it before but this is a 600+ pg thread) but it seem like you did after I said you wouldn't answer his questions... like after I "called you out" if I didn't bet you wouldn't have posted those tips.... BUT I'm glad I did and Glad you did too! Someone already commented, "thanks on the lesson", so you know its appreciated and I appreciated too. Like T said, no one is a Pro here but the funny thing is even the Pro's (McNally, Peterson, Kelby, folks on strobist, Arias, etc) I follow share mad tips/secrets for free.
Really no need to be salty, specially with me... because I didn't call you salty AND who is taking your stuff??? I mean if that's true, I be salty too but I don't think anyone on here is taking your stuff and more importantly NOT EVERYONE so you don't need to be just a bitter person on here (w/ everyone). By the way, I like this picture... look like it could be a book cover:
2 more skate photos
And since this is our Photography Thread let me share something from my stream...
I plan to update the flickr sometime this week w/ some new stuff. OH, AND WHERE IS THE WITCH/WIZARD toy???
