  • I am not sure how it can focus behind the subject when i manually select the focus point to focus on the eye of the subject or an area where i want to get maximum focus or sharpness? What's DPP?
  • Here I am attaching two images, one shot with flash and one without. With flash. f/2.8 1/250 sec ISO-400 17mm Without flash. f/2.8 1/750 sec ISO-400 17mm
  • Created discussion thread canon 60d blurred photos
    Today i went out and used my canon 60d to shoot portraits and alot of the images came out blurred. Lens used was a sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 lens. Images were shot at f/2.8 and at a fast shutter speed. ...
  • How robust is the weather sealing when comparing this g2 lens to the sigma sport or the canon 100-400mm IS II lens?
  • Created discussion thread Tamron 150-600mm G2 lens
    How does this lens compare to the 1st generation when shooting handheld? With the 1st generation of the 150-600mm, I have experienced alot of vibration or camera shake at the telephoto end at 600mm ...
  • PETA are a bunch of morons. I don't understand what is PETA trying to gain over this issue? They are supposed to fight animal rights but in this was the monkey harmed or killed? PETA once again are...

  • Replied in Travel
    My main concern is how much percentage of my overheads should i be charging and including this in my final cost? In my case is it a better idea to reduce it from 10% down to 1.5%?
  • You should definitely have a camera with dual card slots.
  • The £2800 is just a rough figure indicating overheads which includes only the cost of equipment, web hosting and any purchased software. You say that 2 hrs is not very long when shooting swimwear ...
  • Replied in Travel
    My understanding is that a working day is classed as 8 hours and includes travel time, shooting/setup time and time taken for post production of images etc. The way i plan to set my fees is to ...
  • Replied in Travel
    If one owns a car then it makes sense to charge for mileage but in my case, I usually would have to travel via train or taxi and then bill the client based on these travel expenses.
  • Replied in Maybe
    Let me explain by using a scenario of being commissioned by a media agency to shoot a model in swimwear on a beach for 2 hours mainly to promote the media agencies clients new range of swimwear ...
  • The information provided here is very useful. I have summarized the info in the following steps to make it more clear to me. 1. Work out your shooting fee based on the going rate which includes ...
  • I think when deciding on setting the shooting fee, i should probably include standard going rate based on my level of photography + 15% of the indirect costs/overheads + cost of equipment rental ...
  • Is it good strategy to add on 15% of the indirect costs to the direct costs to produce the shoot? Here indirect costs can be insurance, camera equipment. I think each client will be different and ...
  • Replied in Please clarify
    As long as it is commissioned work and I have to work on a specific brief then yes, the above scenario applies.
  • How much is reasonable for a photographer to charge for lets say a half day shoot if they get commissioned work taking into account shooting fees, model fees, travel fees and post production fees etc?
  • Based on your suggestion to use manual and dial in those settings, this seems not possible unless flash is set to HSS. Under normal flash settings, shutter does not go faster than 1/180 sec.
  • Took some test images to demonstrate the effects of using no flash, normal flash and hss flash. Test Image 1 - No flash Test Image 2 - Normal flash Test Image 3 - HSS Flash
  • It had also been suggested here to expose for the background preferably a dark area which would then mean to lock this exposure and recompose on the subject so that they do not appear ...
