  • @Ovidiu Have had the Nikon 24-70mm on my D7000 for almost a week, and I must say that I'm very happy with it's range. It's 'just' wide enough for me. If I do need to go wider, I think a separate lens might be in order, otherwise very happy with the …
  • Hi Ovidiu, Good to see you bought the D7000, fantastic camera! As for wedding lenses, I've used the Tamron 17-50mm 2.8 Di SP lens (very good for the money) but I have recently upgraded to the Nikon 24-70mm 2.8 lens, which should arrive by the end o…
  • Hi ikko, I think that's a great idea, and I would be very interested in hearing how other photographers go about running their business. +1
  • @NeilVn Thank you for your comment Neil! I must admit that I have you to thank. I have read your book (can’t wait for the second instalment) and I read your blog which has helped my work immeasurably. I own a simple D90, 18-200mm VR, 50mm 1.8, and 8…
  • At the moment I just offer one package which includes the entire day shooting, editing, and digital copies of photos (I'll want to start designing my own albums eventually). As I'm just starting out, shooting all day helps me to build my folio, and…
  • Thanks @ikko - I appreciate the feedback . I was in the same boat as you, the couple live 600km away. I do agree with Neil that having something tangible for clients to feel and hold is an advantage, but in saying that, it seems very common these da…
  • @ShannonMinion Great advice, Shannon, thank you. I've been doing batch raw edits, like you said, colour correcting, WB, contrast etc for proofs. Then when clients choose their photos I'll touch them up further, crop and straighten for certain size, …
  • @rtcary I agree with what @robby said, I think the image looks great with the nice soft light. I have come across the problem of having parts of the face overexposed (captured in RAW) and then when I pulled the recovery slider up in ACR found that t…
  • @PhotogDave Cheers for the advice! I'm just batch cropping my "stacks" in Bridge in ACR (in addition to my other workflow bits and pieces) and am getting some pretty good results, then flicking through to make sure I'm happy with each crop. I must s…
  • @PhotogDave "hard to find an 8x12 frame - tell me about it! And even when I do find one, I've found it to be a lot more expensive than the 8x10. I'm currently PP some wedding images (second official wedding) and have been wondering about the crop - …
  • @JMM I know how you feel! A few moments of silence during a shoot can feel like an eternity. I try to keep my subjects involved by explaining to them what I'm doing "hey guys, feel free to relax, I've just got to get the lighting right and then we'l…
  • Hey @rtcary did you shoot in RAW? If so, you should be able to recover some data using the 'Recovery' slider. If you're shooting in jpeg, then I'd suggest spot metering your grand-daughters face and meter off that. Cheers
  • @ShannonMinion - I agree, the printing part is not so difficult, it's the PP after taking the wedding photos. I'm in the middle of creating a PDF sheet for a family photosession. I've colour balanced, contrast, exposure etc, but I'm wondering when p…
  • My thoughts exactly, ikko. As a wedding photographer who is just starting out, I am always interested in post-wedding workflows. How many is 'enough'? If there is such a thing, and what should you expect to give to your clients? I mean, 500 photos,…
