Interested in olympus xz1 or fuji xf1, but after viewing your video of blurring the background and watching a similar video on youtube using gimp, i've decided to stick with my fuji t300 and kodak p880. This software stuff is great. Thanks again!
The bride ranted and so did Nikki. Both have valid arguments. To the professionals (i'm a hobbyist), I would keep it simple when educating the customer of the costs involved. $3000 while fair for pro work, is not within everyone's budget. Do your fellow photographers and the customer some good by referring lower priced jobs to someone else (your backup photographer, a student, etc.) but try to stay away from the insults of let your uncle do it.
