I love your website . I would be very grateful if you could publish
more techniques concerning portraits,modeling and fashion photography.
Also please give some helpful hints on lighting.
I have just finished reading your magazine, cover to cover. First
time I've ever done that on-line. Kudos to you on an excellent mag!
Thought the first issue was really great, keep up the great work...
...Thanks again and all the best to you for putting this thing
together. May it be as effective as each of your individual endeavors
have been for so long to this industry.
One of the best photo sites to come along to date. Not the same old
trite stuff you usually see...
This is a great website! I'll definitely be back!
Your site rocks! Congratulations!

I'm going to be in California with my wife and will be shooting in different areas. I always worry about shooting in cities like San Fran, maybe you could write a future article on safety when actually shooting. Thanks again for a very interesting article!
Jim, the only advice I can give when shooting in urban areas is to be aware of your surroundings and not get lost in your viewfinder. I usually keep my camera bag under my tripod so I can keep an eye on it. Most importantly, listen to the hair on the back of your neck. If something doesn't feel right, get back in the rental car and leave. The shot isn't worth your safety.
BTW, San Francisco is a beautiful city, I'm sure you'll enjoy your trip there.
