  • what kind of images? What do you need to look up? I shoot people, weddings, etc. So I organize by year/type/date/client/session. I can find them searching by last name in windows. I prefix keeper ...
  • Replied in simple answer
    you need 16-200 covered at 2.8, the long lens with IS. Then add in whatever primes you feel you need - I have a fisheye (use at every ceremony, some fun reception shots), 85 1.2 for portraits of ...
  • Replied in Really?
    Not sure if your trying to educate the OP or be sarcastic or what. Do you charge the client for the time to park the car? I think that's why he's thinking $75/half hour - he knows there's travel ...
  • if you are truly interested in making money then you need to have a business plan - and that will provide you with a cost for your time. If you dont' charge more than your cost of doing business ...
  • Figure your time is worth $75/hour for the prep, shoot, edit and sales process. How many hours do you have invested? That should be your goal - get paid that figure. $1700 is way unrealistic. Less ...
  • Replied in wont' work AFAIK
    if you use the PC cord off the side of the camera it shoudl work. Hotshoe won't..will with a canon flash, but not a PW in live view.
  • Replied in Why?
    Why do you want to 'go pro'? For extra money? For a full time career? As a job or business? What do you want to shoot? Weddings are different than sports or commercial or 'events' (gri pand ...
  • in the US you must declare ALL income, hobby, business or whatever. The difference is a BUSINESS can deduct it's expenses, a hobby cannot. So a business' income is what's left AFTER expenses, and ...
  • so if you divide the 'profit' by the hours you spend on this does it work out to be $5/hour or $50/hour? Makes a difference of course. I'd not pay you anything to buy a business that would pay me ...
  • HD and 2K are not the same. close, but not.

  • Replied in this book
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0452297281/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 it's like 2 inches thick. LOTS of info on the tech / decision side of making films, the hisotry of the tech, ...
  • Replied in need more info
    what are you shooting? What is the final output use? I prefer a video cam to a dslr - just a lot easier. If i was making a feature film then a dslr would probably be worth the effort - BUT there ...
  • you want mid level then you'll have to pay mid level prices... The sub $100ish category is not gonna offer much, the $500+ will offer it all. I have movie studio platinum 13 and it works...are ...
  • cardiod mic on boom into a digital recorder, sync the sound in post. Sure, it's around $300 but it works.
  • Created discussions After the Kodak Moment
    30,000 workers once made film..not it's 300. 5 minute video - http://www.nytimes.com/video/business/100000003538108/after-the-kodak-moment.html
  • I did some studio work with a 70-200 at 2.8 and even f4 on a FF 5D3 and the talent's movement (sitting or standing) was enough that the footage, while usable, isn't sharp.  Great shallow DOF look ...
  • what I'm doing is using the camcorder as the main camera and a dlsr as a second camera - for closeups, special effects (like wide angle, tele, shallow DOF,etc). considered a 7d as i hear they do ...
  • get this book...it's thick and full of all kind of knowledge you need. I understand jpg and pixels and printing..video had me baffled, especially the first time I went to save a project, er, export it.
  • Remember it's VOLUME photography - and anything volume has to be low-cost. So those htat do this all the time have a way to keep costs low...minimal service, low quality, dumb/cheap labor, etc. als ...
