  • I love the ASUS but be aware that the SSD's are proprietary. If you want to upgrade from 128 to something larger, you won't be able to toss any SATA SSD in there. I have the UX51 series, which has ...
  • I have the ASUS Zenbook UX51vz that you speak of and it is fantastic for image editing. Specs can be seen here... The Asus is fantastic with the IPS screen and SSD's. The only thing I would caution ...
  • Without any "intelligent software" being applied, the scanner doesn't care whether your negatives are thin or dense. If you're negatives have a full range of value, then you're doing it right. If ...
  • As you can see from my username, I went by Mark Hay Photography for quite a while. Once I legitimized and decided to register my DBA, I took a step back. "your name" Photography is not the way to ...
  • Yeah, but the OP said he is from Chicago, so it is quite relevant.
  • Sorry, the break down for what I'm doing is: $323 - 1 year subscription to PPA (which gets me the indemnification trust and the $15,000 of equipment insurance as part of the subscription). $315 - ...
  • I just used Turbo Tax small business, and I loved it as well. I particularly appreciate how Turbo Tax will maintain a log of my depreciating assets over time. That alone will keep me coming back. F ...
  • I live in the nw suburbs of Chicago and I have a part time photo business that I legitimized last year. I decided to stay as a sole proprietor for the time being. I don't have a lot of assets at ...
  • I am one of those part time photographers who has a full time career outside of pro photography, though I am art teacher and it leaks over all the time. That being said, my business is legitimate, ...
  • I haven't had this experience. The file name is the title as far as I can see. If your image has a file name when you upload it (and it does), then that is the title of the image. If you want the ...
  • I'm the OP, and I was okay with $32/hour on this job. That's all I have to say about that. -Mark
  • Thank you all for your excellent feedback. Much appreciated. I didn't know that Costco had the ICC profiles available. I'll look into that for situations where I'm in a pinch. thanks again! Mark
  • Created questions Good Prints on a deadline?
    Hey guys and gals, At least half of my part-time pro business is geared toward digital photo restoration. I am a good portrait photographer, but I am great with image editing with Lightroom and ...
  • Replied in Do you care?
    I find this whole conversation shallow and pedantic. - Peter Griffin
  • This was my thinking. My concern is five years down the line when I can't even open old files unless I'm a subscriber to Adobe, which means they can jack their monthly rate as high as they want ...
  • Replied in Depends
    I think some of customers think that if you give over the the files unedited, they should be saving money due to your not putting in the time to edit the images. The truth is, it will cost me more ...
  • I would certainly be fine releasing the RAW files if the client had these type of needs, where I know a professional would be color correcting, etc. It is when I'm shooting a standard wedding, ...
  • You're reading too far into it. I'm not talking about a proprietary ownership of the image necessarily. This isn't a copyright issue. It's a reputation issue. All I'm saying is that the product ...
  • Are you honestly saying we should just resort to turning over our half-baked images because someone is going to mess them up anyway? If that is the case, what business advantage do I have to making ...
  • I don't really see it that way. I would never give up my raw files because my name is on the work and I need to have quality control on what is released to the client with my name on it. I know ...
