[Gothic BC] Ordering Prints and Digital Copies

After much deliberation I've decided to finally start offering higher resolution files of the photos for sale.

The files are unwatermarked and are well over twice as big as the freely available, watermarked images.

Digital Copies - Giving Away the Negative

When I set up my photo booth in nightclubs I frequently get asked if I can simply send an electronic copy rather than selling the print. This is a problem since I'm typically not making any kind of  wage, only earning from the sale of prints.

Initialize a Null NotesDocumentCollection

There are times when it is handy to start will a null collection in a NotesDocumentCollection., for example when you want to add documents to a collection programmatically based on something other than selected documents in a view.

Two good methods for doing this are:

Method 1:
Dim session As New NotesSession
Dim db As NotesDatabase
Dim collection As NotesDocumentCollection
Set db = session.CurrentDatabase
Set collection = db.GetProfileDocCollection("The name of a non-existent profile document")

Making One Picture from Two Exposures

Above are two exposures of my friend Isaac, a.k.a. DJ Pandemonium, doing his thing at 560 Club last month, shot by another friend and fellow photographer, Michael Dicus.

The first exposure, with no flash, the lights on the DJ decks and in the background look great, but we can't see Isaac at all. In the second one, with the flash, Isaac is well exposed, but we lose all the interesting stuff around him.

Michael was kind enough to upload these shots to my website, Gothic BC and I wanted something for the opening shot of the gallery for the night and decided an combination of these two shots would work. Enter the magic of Photoshop.
