    Unless you want to learn how to develop film. There's nothing that shooting film will teach you that you can't learn shooting digital. That doesn't mean you shouldn't do it just because you want ...
  • Simply point out that.... "Signing the piece of paper is only one way of agreeing a contract and that paying is another. The paper is just a written version of the contract terms that we are ...
  • Switching to Lightroom CC because you want to back up to the cloud is probably not a good idea - that isn't what it's for. Lightroom CC is a mobile/tablet/lower end PC friendly version of ...
  • Never heard of it until now and, sadly, it's not compatible with the newest versions of Firefox.
  • Replied in This ^^
    Never give a discount to new clients in the hope of getting future work. All you are doing is setting their expectation of what you charge, making it harder to charge more in the future. Discounts ...
  • Replied in Woops sorry
    Forgot the most important part. The colour you select is set to 100% saturation (or less if you want) but you should also set the Saturation slider on the brush to -100, which will remove the base ...
  • is what's written in the contract. If you didn't stipulate this requirement when the contract was formed then you have no legal right to demand it. You can of course ask, he can of course refuse ...
  • How many hours would it take to go up there again and take that image - That number multiplied by an hourly rate (plus any additional costs such as travel) is what they would have to pay to get ...
  • Replied in Added borders

  • Replied in LR Color tool?
    The saturation was probably 100% - I wasn't trying to get a specific colour, just a solid colour. To be honest if you want to duplicate a specific colour from somewhere else in the image I think ...

  • I think about the images I am going to take before I even leave the house (and I never shot film). When I started photography I walked around photographing everything. Lots of thin DoF images if ...
  • Replied in 99% humidity
    I live in a location with very high humidity. Mould can do serious damage over time so my kit goes into a humidity controlled cabinet when I get home.

  • Replied in LR Color tool?
    Yes you can but.... 1. The resulting colour may not be what you want. As mentioned above if you click the mouse on the colour swatch and hold it, then move the mouse pointer over the image, you ...
  • 1. Did you get paid? If so then stop worrying about pointless details. instead of wasting time checking on people, spend it finding more clients and earning more money. 2. If people want to know ...
  • Replied in Oh hell no...
    The worst part about Instagram is the stupid bots liking, following and commenting on images (and then unfollowing a couple of weeks later). Great image Wow Thumbs up You crushed it Last thing I ...
