One Shot

While I work on getting a pack of iPhone4 size wallpapers available for everyone I wanted to share a photo with everyone. Some of you may have seen this come through on flickr already but I know many don’t follow me there so I thought I would spread the love. The image was taken while out camping a few weeks ago with my hasselblad and the photo processing place developed it wrong which was pretty upsetting but I was able to salvage a few shots at least. This log was amazing and covered with moss and tiny trees as a small stream/river ran underneath. So stay tuned for the iPhone retina pack that I know many people have been looking forward too for some time now. Ive even noticed some of you out there cropping your own versions out of ipad size wallpapers heh, just please keep them to yourself if you can, or at least show a little love and link back here if you are doing something like that, thanks and I will see you guys again soon!

    Really nice composition. I also wanted to drop a thank for all the great photos. You have earned a bookmark icon on my iPad. :-)

    Stunning. Per usual. You’re gifted … thank you for sharing it with all of us.

    Amazing shot, as always. Can you recommend a great photo scanner, considering all of your film work would need to be scanned over?

    What are your thoughts on printing from home? As in digital prints and such?

    Thanks again for your work..

    Take care,

    Love the photos! Amazing! I hope can take beautiful pictures like you! Ppictures that are taken by Iphone, how big can they be printed out? Will the DPI affect the print out?

These rules also apply for any artwork or imagery submitted and shown within this site which was created by an artist aside from myself.

When sharing images via your personal blogs I kindly ask that you link back directly to either the post the image was taken from or the base of the website at www.fiftyfootshadows.net and give a credit to www.fiftyfootshadows.net.

Support the artwork you admire! Also, it is greatly appreciated if you do NOT link directly to the zip files. This is more or less the same as re-posting them as it circumvents the tiny bit of support I ask of you which is to simply link back to the original post for others to enjoy the site.

It’s not fair to artists if you do not credit their work and link back to the original content creator. It is theft plain and simple and blogs that attempt to somehow be mysterious by not giving credit to the creators are simply hurting the artistic community as a whole. If you love it so much then please, support it! The artistic community on the Internet is based on trust. Without trust then what do we have? are you going to be one of the responsible users out there or will you be among the bottom feeders, stealing content and passing it off as your own to make a quick buck in ad sales.

Use your best judgement and we will get along just fine.

Thank you for your understanding and support!
