Now the client is fully aware of Photoshop and what can be done, those things can and are a real time sink for todays proffessional.

it''s your business, you can do whatever you want.

LOL eh no!

The reason I have a business is because I give the customers what they want!

In some cases the better business is doing otherwise.

The best business is keeping the customer happy, anything else is folly as they pay your bills.

Since the advent of digital you really need to offer the extras that most clients call for, if you don't you'll soon find those people voting with their feet

I can tell you just about everyone is aware of what digital can do, you have your attitude 'I'll do it my way' and they'll just find someone who will offer them the opening eyes, slimming down and the other digital tools.

You've never been a working pro have you?

I'd agree Mark. I knew few wedding photographers using 35mm in the 80's and early 90's. I used my RB67, C33 and Pentax 645 mainly and didn't add 35mm until around 96. Unfortunately, a lot of people have opinions not backed by experience or knowledge.

I knew many photographers back then using 35mm in addition to medium. You can believe that or not. What you can't do is confirm my experience and knowledge.

Based upon your comments, I most certainly can. I also saw the quality of what 35mm in the late 80's and early 90's achieved...if that meets your standards, you are at a different level than myself and who I associated with in the field....and I presume you aren't a photographer either.
