    Good point. Quick is good. For a while I used an Eye-Fi card to send photos to a tablet while we shot. The client could review on site -- even between outfits -- and mark top picks. I could do a ...
  • All the tech info tells us we'll see more noise at high ISO and less dynamic range with smaller sensors. I'm sure that's true for a head-to-head comparison with sensors of similar design and the ...
  • Congratulations - you nailed it. I really like this answer For the record, I know what off-axis sharpness is -- and it is important to some folks. But in the end it's the pictures that count. Gato
  • I think ebb and flow are natural in any passion -- or art, career or business, for that matter. Working artists call it dry spells, writer's block or the like. I've been serious about photography ...
  • Apologies for the slow reply. My release is similar to the ASMP releases you can see here: http://www.asmp.org/resources/legal/releases/property-model-releases/ I would go with the simplest ...
  • You'd have to ask your insurance company or agent, but does not seem likely to me this is an insurance matter. More normal wear and tear, or possibly a warranty issue if you are still covered. Gato
  • The amount of planning varies considerably. For an advertising or editorial shot things can be pretty tight. As example, on a magazine cover you know where the nameplate goes, how much space and ...
  • The subtleties of technical quality are lost on most clients. Family clients care if the people all have good expressions and if the kids got in a fight during the session. Commercial clients care ...
  • You could do it with a square sensor -- that has been my thought for many years. Make it switchable for aspect ration and orientation, size it to take full advantage of the image circle. Of course, ...
  • Free, paid, trade or discount -- people judge me by my pictures. Everybody gets the best I can do. I have a "friends and family" price intended to be cheap enough for anyone who really wants my ...
  • Most of my camera bags come from the luggage aisle -- either discount stores or thrift shops. Add a little cardboard or corroplast for stiffeners and dividers, maybe a little padding -- and away ...
  • Some random thoughts after reading through this thread -- - My usual answer to these questions is "How many pictures will you miss?" If you are not missing out on photos you can wait. If your ...
  • That was going to be my advice. In the world of photography SD cards are a relatively small expense. Makes no sense to me to use an unknown or dubious brand. Gato
  • Sounds like this job is done, but for future reference I would. It takes a few minutes, but could prevent misunderstanding with the client. (Actually most of my headshots and portraits are done ...
  • Here in the US the retailer generally sets the return policy. For online sellers as for mail order sellers before them a generous return policy gives buyers confidence -- thus helps sales. ...
  • Think about the distance from which you usually view faces while talking to people. That gives a starting point. Say anywhere from 3 to 6 feet -- 1 to 2 meters. Shooting from that distance will ...
  • In business terms it is safest to assume images are copyright and seek permission before publishing. Aside from avoiding legal problems it is just good manners and, as they say, the right thing to do.
  • There are a number of products out there for connecting between tablets, camera cards and USB sticks -- there seem to be a lot more choices than when I bought my stuff. Also I did not think to ...
  • Replied in good question
    I have read the Canon 24-105 f4 is their second best selling L lens. That and similar lenses are mainstays in most lines. The lack of something along these lines -- 24-85, 24-120, or 28-something ...
  • First, definitely get permission. Especially for anything involving children or anything that might prove embarrassing to the clients. Aside from legal issues, retail photographers depend heavily ...
