Green Tea In Motion by CrypticGrin

I know that you're just starting out with photography, so I'm keeping that in mind as I write this critique. That said, I want you to u...

I apologize in advance – this might sting a little. I'll start with what you got right. The pose is suitably casual, and having your mo...

Overall, a well-executed, dramatic low-key shot. Given your constraints (lack of a tripod and high ISO setting on the camera), I'd say ...

I've been backing and forthing with the technicians over on the Adobe forum for a week now trying to resolve something. I have a subscription to Photoshop CC, but somewhere along the line, the Creative Cloud desktop app went missing on me (I'll admit I might have deleted it, probably thinking it was superfluous at the time). As a result, I can't update my version of Photoshop, at least without re-installing the CC desktop app.

Here's the problem: it won't install.

I've tried every trick the Adobe folks have suggested, up to and including creating a new administrative account and downloading it through that. Same thing happens each time: I can download the token installer and run it, but when that program tries to download the full CC desktop app, the progress bar gets about half-way across and then, BOOP! it's gone.

Has anything similar happened to anyone else here? If so, were you able to resolve it at all?

For reference, I'm on a mid-2009 Macbook Pro running OS/X 10.9.5.

To those people who take great pride in announcing that they do not ever edit their photos, I say you are only half a photographer.

The image on the left is straight out of the camera. The image on the right is processed in Capture One Pro and cleaned up a touch in Photoshop. While it may, theoretically, be possible to create the image on the right entirely in-camera, you'd have to put in hours to light it exactly that way. I spent 1 minute framing and posing my model, a minute getting a decent enough exposure, and maybe 10 minutes all told post-processing.

You're quite welcome. I always like seeing how people push the boundaries, and that's a great example. Reminds me a bit of something I saw on flickr once where a photographer took 6-second exposures of fireworks going off, and gradually either focused or defocused the camera during the exposure so that the normal light trails turned into these exotic shapes that looked like luminescent sea anemones in the dark.

Wow, that sounds really amazing. I saw an example which I keep experimenting with where someone focused on their Christmas tree, set a long exposure and then zoomed out (rather than many pictures where the photographer zooms in) which was also very unusual but as everything was sharp - I suspect they used a tripod - it was really eye catching.

I've also been meaning to try something where I gradually change the aperture during a long exposure (which is only possible because I have manual lenses). I'd have to do a lot of experimentation to get the exposure right, though.

I saw your work on the DD page, and liked it so much that I came to browse...  I didn't even realize the DD was stock, and looking at your gallery, I just gotta say, your eye for photography is amazing!!!  The quality is so good, and all that I saw I would consider art more than stock!  Well done, well done!

What most people on here consider "stock" would get tossed straight in the trash at a stock photo agency like Getty. The work I produce is not amazing, it's merely the price of entry. I'm a decent photographer, but there are many more talented than I, both here on dA and out in the rest of the world.
