weegee photographer

Weegee was the pseudonym of Arthur Fellig (June 12, 1899 - December 26, 1968), an American photographer and photojournalist, known for his stark black and white street photography. Have a look here and here to follow up some of the references to see his photography. A pioneer. Imagine having created in your car boot, a dark room.

Not so difficult to create a darkroom in a boot of a car really. I had one in the back of my mini-van at one time (as an experiment) and I still had room for a TV, small fridge, a wind-machine and a pack of boqueroni. I left out the expresso machine as it needed too much power. However, we did have a fix bath and so forth. I mention the word fix - as this is what you need to do with the wedding pictures on your Pressmen site. It dismays me to read that you favour the photo-journalist approach and elaborate on this with full descriptions of what you can/will provide THEN astoundingly I'm referred to the 'gallery' which contains some ropey pictures that are all too obviously as awful as zillions of other wedding photo's I've seen. Let's get those images changed. The images on the left hand side of the page which change are more appropriate but I don't think you are doing yourself any favours showing most of the others. Mediocre work will beget mediocre work. You are aiming for better than this. 2/20 and before you see me - get some better pictures taken.

oh! I liked the old site - why are you changing the wheels? (just change the images and layout a little (lot) and add a few farmyard animals + get rid of the website designer).

Are you gonna use flash or not? Are you? Moving the images around will not help.
