  • I won't respond to each point since there is no need, but here are a few responses. It's fantastic. The pivoting screen makes some shot angles possible now without guessing. I can shoot as high as ...
  • 100% no....you would be sued right away. Your ticket should say what's allowed and not allowed, commercial photography is not allowed in any venue without written permission and players hold their ...
  • You will find the A99II a major upgrade to the A850 in every way. It's literally moving ahead a decade. That said, the video aspect will not be of use to you and you will likely find out the hard ...
  • Replied in Serious overkill
    I have both the A850 and a A99II (hi fellow A mount enthusiast!). I also do it as a side job to supplement my income. What are you going to do with so many flashes? If you plan to use them off ...
  • Replied in Pinterest
    I found Pinterest to be rather useless and inefficient and dropped using it. The issue with Pinterest is that people will largely pin your photo as part of a larger board with many other similar ...
  • Use a circular polarizer filter.
  • Replied in Delivery
    A consumer is not interested in knowing about colour management and you cannot educate them on it. My clients are not print knowledgeable photographer peers, they are models, mothers, couples who ...
  • Replied in Delivery
    Yep, unfortunately photographers do not control how the clients choose to use the images once it is in their hand, and to most clients going to Costco or Walmart is the easiest and most cost ...
  • Could is a different word than have. Have you sold any of your work in the past? Have any of your friends, family or your artist friend paid you for some work? You will find that crossing the paid ...
  • The question that comes would be, if you get approached for a wedding after the engagement shoot, would you decline or accept? Do you want to shoot weddings? From the sounds of your post it does ...
  • Wave is what I currently use. Recently starting accepting credit card payments through them as well. Works perfect for my needs. Wave is a pretty well known free Quickbooks alternative in Canada ...
  • Google, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Flickr, 500px, You Tube, Blogging, Tumblr, Next Door, Deviant Art, Google+, Linked In, Twitter, Behanc e - just to name a few. Kept Youtube and blogging if ...
  • I'm replying to this one since yours is a genuine question over the OP's little rant which over exaggerates, but yes definitely you can make money on Instagram both directly and indirectly. Instagr ...
  • OP, as an addition to my post, you absolutely do need to learn retouching. Lack of retouching skills puts you at a severe disadvantage (no matter how good your straight out of camera shots are). Yo ...
  • I had a similar path (full time with photographer on the side as well). Started photos for fun got into people photography, and just continued to learn and learn and build my own style. Eventually ...
  • First issue is none the girls in your picture are actual models. They are girls who want to be behind the camera and call themselves models after getting a few shots with someone. There is a ...
  • That metadata filter in Lightroom is good for applying a preset for specific group of photos when working from a RAW file (i.e. noise reduction on images above ISO 800). It's useful as a ...
  • What battle? That someone would mention to decline shooting a wedding for a friend as a favour without prior experience (which another person also did)? His friend could be happy with the photos, ...
  • As a friend, you should decline to shoot the wedding, but can do so as a 2nd photographer to get some experience for yourself while they pay for a wedding photographer. You do not want the stress ...
  • Replied in Of course...
    OK...why would you think manually focusing on the partially obstructed lady in the back with her eyes covered  instead of the bride and groom directly in front was a great idea? And why use that ...
