My First Try

So, I’m walking down Main Street, in the Madison Historic District. And I look over and see through the store front windows what looks like a photo shoot in the making. The girl’s mother had apparently brought her in for some pictures of her little angel. So I walk up to the front door, knock and ask if it would be ok for me to stand on a stool, and take a picture of Bernie taking a picture. The lady who answered the door, said,"OK." Clearly they were very open and friendly people. This was my first shot. I think you can tell by the blur, I've got "a lot of potential" (LOL).

I think the big giant windows are there so the public can occasionally watch him work. Though for lighting control, they do sometimes put up a tarp to limit street lights or sun interference.

My Second Try

I did better with my second try. I think you can feel the teenage angst in how she’s not nearly as enthused to do this as her mom was, which was what I was going for. Translation: I’m going to take a picture and hope something interesting might be found. My talent is probably more in the digital editing room. Compare the edited picture on the right to my original below.

Bernie’s Results

This is the picture by Cool Pics’ own Bernie Kasper. Now, this is the kind of quality and professional results you can expect from Cool Pics, by an actual professional photographer. Even with me mucking up his studio, I couldn't distract him from his work even if I wanted to. He’s a consummate dedicated professional.

Bernie actually has an enormous portfolio, some of which are available online for your viewing entertainment. I think you’ll be surprised by the boldness and conceptual clarity that comes through his pictures. Down below you’ll find links to those pages so you can see for yourself.

This file is coming directly off the internet, live on Bernie’s blog here. The image has not been copied or downloaded to our servers. The individual who visits this web page is actually receiving the image off of Bernie's web blog directly, and registers as a visit to his web site, each and every time someone visits this page and views this picture. It’s like having a series of magnifying glasses and mirrors, we telescope the viewer's eye to Bernie’s picture on his site. isn’t technology amazing!

To check this, a visitor simply right-clicks on an image, then selects "properties" on the right-click or popup-menu. The properties tab will show the address (URL) of the file.



What does the "F" stand for in BFK? Hint: B and the K are "Bernie" and "Kasper," respectively.
