  • So the photo may have some meaning or interest to the couple. Print it out as a 4 x 6 and give it to them outside the good shots. Or send a quick email with a little note like "remember when we ...
  • I know we beat this do death but... I just saw this topic, here is an example of a guy with a nice camera at a car show. It's an example of just because a guy has an expensive camera does not mean ...
  • That's a problem if it's your only backup. My business files, customer data base, Quickbooks, payroll information, etc... are backed up on a few hard drives on site, off site, and in the cloud. Unl ...
  • And when you asked him about it after you received the product what did he say?
  • What did they say when asked them about the product you received vs the product they showed you prior to hiring them?
  • Ok, I'll play. Being forced to choose as a non photographic minded person and because you're forcing me to choose, I choose the cell phone guy because I know his photo will be acceptable, he can ...
  • This is fun. Or would a car guy, who may not have any knowledge of how a car works and just had enough money to buy an expensive car, think that maybe, like himself, a guy with a lot of money just ...

  • I don't ask either because how do we know they are not just Uncle Bob with a camera? If they are not actively soliciting neither one may have the necessary skills for a professional car shoot.
  • If redundancy is the goal why not just multiple single drives that can easily be stored off site? Every day my data is copied automatically to an internal drive, an external drive, and a NAS ...
  • Or much like the car guys who buy very expensive cars maybe the D5 guy just bought a big fancy camera because he could and wanted to show off. With out seeing portfolios we have no idea which one ...
  • Which one is a professional? Which one has a portfolio to show me? It's a car show, amateurs are there taking photos. Much like the car show, where people buy very expensive things to show off, ...
  • I'm still goin' with... nope. I think consumers look at a portfolio and decide if the photographer is capable of doing the job. I've never been asked what type of camera I use, my customers just ...
  • No, no I'm not.
  • It just occurred to me, are beginners using f1.2, 1.4 lenses? If they are they are probablly still struggling with getting the eyes and nose in focus without recomposing. If they're using their kit ...
  • You need to search for sunrise. It happens around the winter solstice. This happens in December and January. Here is an article explaining the sunrise. https://www.space.com/40639-the-story-of-manh ...
