  • Neither can I see anything wrong.Can you message me with a link to the raw file, would like to see full res and original, maybe Neil would also.
  • It seems pretty expensive to me, but I have not used them.
  • Dave, I'd would personally give a set rate per hour. But that's just me
  • Hi Marry, Like Lou says try that, it's free, but Photoshop is a **HUGE** learning curve if you've never used it before. I've been on Photoshop for around close to 26 years now, and I still learn something new every day. What you could do is get a …
  • Hi Marryanderson, Do you mean you are looking for a program for your wedding photos to edit in, or mean an actual service whereby someone does the editing for you? Cheers, Trev
  • Lou, In a nutshell, 'Yes'. It's kindly *automatically fixing* your image behind the scenes. (bastards) I did a write up on that a long time back, where (back then) using (Calibration Tab settings) 2010 was preferable to using the then latest 2012 s…
  • Well done, I think you did a great job Dave, they should be very happy with those results. The 'action' shots are bang on, lighting is great, faces nicely exposed and the work stations are nicely lit as a background. You should be pleased with those…
  • Dave, Happy New Year also to you and everyone else. Considering you will be working over 3 days, 35 employees, etc., travel each day, set up and tear down for different stations, you have to factor in the total time, your expertise, and don't forget…
  • Agree Stephen, I think the camera market is widely diverging into a lot of 'consumer' product models and with the advent of mirrorless I think in a few years the 'old' style will go the way of the horse and buggy.
  • Dave, I keep mine and once I have had them on the HDD for around 12 months, I will burn to an external drive, then I delete all files relevant to that job from my computer itself. And yes, I have had occasion to need to go back to a RAW file for a …
  • Man, very crazy, wonder what their reasoning was for this move? I also checked out the Nikon Repair Centre Taiwan links in that story, some amazing stuff and if true would be great. Recently had a Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 Silent Wave Motor and the Focus …
  • Very nice shots Mike.
  • Hey David, HERE YOU GO MATE Trev
  • Damn, sorry David, I put Phil in for some reason. No worries, still have that thread bookmarked re copying files over mate? Cheers.
  • Hey David, long time mate. Okie, first up I haven't used it so a disclaimer here. Personally, and I do mean everyone has a differing opinion, it's what works for them. Make sure you can end up with a reasonably 'flat' screen, you do not want a high …
  • Fair enough, just that in your post you said you had emailed the florist and it was she requesting those shots, but obviously if the couple are OK to give out those shots, it's their choice to do so as long as you are not being requested to send per…
  • ALM, NO That is my answer and the reason simply is you are giving away the clients property, they've paid and contracted you to shoot their wedding photos, not for a vendor. I've had requests like this plenty of times, a polite "I give my images to …
  • Same thing, off/on camera flash and also what Neil says, if you are able to edit, shoot in RAW format, much easier to control your White Balance by fine tuning in a RAW program, like Lightroom or Photoshop's Adobe Camera Raw, or others if you use th…
  • Mary, If it's daylight, WB is usually around 5600K-6000K, even with flash, but if it's early morning or late afternoon when it's naturally warm sunlight you may want to drop that a bit otherwise it will be way too warm for skin tones, unless you wan…
  • Bob, Just watched it and did a little digging around, and yeah, I reckon this would be a great little goer in my books. I already have several Godox products, the 180/360/AD600BM's, etc., and they work great. Trev
  • Dave, I would try to meter for the face in these situations, better to be over-exposed then bring it back, than to be under-exposed and try to open it up as the shadows will become muddy and colour moire will be much worse. All of my wedding shots I…
  • Dave, You would not be able to create anywhere near what I can do in Photoshop by using Elements, it's really very basic stuff compared to in Photoshop, as I use Masks/Layers, etc., and lots of backend stuff which Elements does not have. It took me…
  • Here is my result Dave. First up, I did change the WB. Now, the next best thing you can change is the "Tone Curve" preset which normally gives a 'Medium Contrast' to 'Linear' which takes off all contrast as you can then control it much better using …
  • Dave, I got the file mate, having a go at it now.
  • PM Sent mate, with instructions via 'MailBigFile' Transfer site. or if you have a Dropbox account, just upload to your 'Public' folder, right click and copy the link, and sent that link via PM back to me and I can direct download from your Dropbox
