danieljp: What can I say that hasn't already been said. If you are a legal photographer meaning you pay ALL OF YOUR TAXES then it's expensive to run a business and provide a quality and consistent product and make a living doing it. One of the things this bride fails to realize is the word "edit"; she makes it seem as though that process is quick and easy; I spend much more time editing a wedding than shooting it. Go ahead and let your guests take pictures; she'll be sorry in the end. You see there's a saying: "People don't know what they don't know," and this bride simply has no idea.

Editing can also just mean selecting. When someone smiles you tend to lean on the shutter button, and there's no shortcut to inspecting to find that one 'best' image to keep. 10x more true for group photos. You take 4+, because there'll be someone blinking in each one. Opening 1200 RAW images takes time. Only friends can do that for free.

On Sigma 105mm F2.8 EX DG Macro now available news story (94 comments in total)

I don't see the point of OS in a macro. The camera and lens I can secure--it's usually the subject that I can't get to keep still enough.
