  • Ok, a very quick explanation as I have to be somewhere... I'll expand later if necessary. I am a "part timer" I shoot mostly small business commercial images for websites, etc more as a paid hobby ...
  • That's probably a fair and balanced perspective. However you say the doom and gloom doesn't fit what you see in your world, but conversely in my world I see people a hair away from losing the shirt ...
  • I don't like the composition, especially the way all four corners of the plate are cropped out of frame. I also think the depth of field is too shallow this is throwing the top of the plate out of ...
  • Forever. The "good 'ol days" won't return no matter how long you wait/hope. Photography is going the same way of the typist, elevator operator and shoe shiner. How many of those do you see making ...
  • It's the way of the world/free markets. You may berate it as damaging your industry. But when your local supermarket, gas station, electronic store, car dealer, etc compete on price and drive ...
  • Thanks for the info. I guess it varies depending on the genre, but I know a guy who shoots for car magazines, he goes to car shows, motorsport events, etc. His agreements are always with the ...
  • Are these magazines not owned by the same publishing company? So really it's just one customer using your image but in their different publications?
  • Dying?...no. Significantly less profitable than it used to be? Yes! You/we can dance around the maypole all day long and argue back and forth about how success is all down to sales technique, the ...
  • Most clients are just paying for a useable product, they don't care who the photographer is and the photographer's vision means nothing to them. "Vision" is something that photographers may value ...
  • Great throw away line.
  • But why? It's the end result/outcome/potential issues that are important not the point at which the RAW files were acquired. You either think it is acceptable to supply them or you don't, arguing ...
  • Yes, with average photoshop skills, I would say 10 mins for an image that came out of a camera with no significant errors or compositional issues, is a good rule of thumb as an average for a ...
  • Are you talking about full colour printing on steel or etching? If etching you need to look for someone who can do laser etching, if full colour loo at a company that does silk screen printing and ...
  • They obviously just mean the raw image files like NEF, RAF, CRW, CR2, etc.
  • I'm not saying you, I or anyone should or shouldn't hand over RAW images. Though I'm certainly not as precious about it as some, if someone wants to be charged a bit extra for my time to supply ...
  • Exactly. So the resultant image will be an even worse advert for the photographer.
  • Again they could damage JPEG's and throw them up on FB just as easily! Whether you edited them first has no impact on the end result. It's like giving someone an aspirin to get rid of a headache ...
  • They can do just as much damage editing a JPEG as they can a RAW file.
  • I think there are a few points to address here: 1) The argument "RAW files are your digital negatives don't give them away" is moot. The reason they weren't supplied in the film days is because it ...
  • My personal opinion is Photoshop CC for $9.99 a month is a bargain considering the maturity and functionality of the software. Some people think it's greedy of Adobe not to let you buy an outright ...
