Apologies for the typos in the previous post. I was typing on a mobile not being able to see what I was typing. Personally I'm not particularly a people person. I am very good with strangers for a short amount of time but not for long periods so I think it is more about deciding what you like and then focussing your business on that part. People either warm to me very quickly or they form an opinion that they don't like me so don't want to do business with me. My humour is what I am loved for but also disliked for. My humour is a part of me and I've learnt to use it to get me more work.

So on another note, when I had a studio I found it difficult because you get the wow factor at first.... 'I have a studio' and then you feel successful because models want to work with you for free. But then you start to think why free if I am good, they should pay me or better still someone else pay me to shoot with them. Thats an old arguement though. You just end up chasing your own tail though. I knew it wasn't for me so I got out. I didn't feel any sense of failure, i didn't close down my photography business, It made me persue other sides and I went on to take photography workshops with 20 people at a time. I made sure i had a very chatty assistant that was great at small talk and it left me to concentrate on my skill and sharing my knowledge. That made me more of a people person by far....

I didn't write this as a success story but just to give others including the original poster some kind of hope that you can get your mojo back, you just have to do what you enjoy.... There is no such thing as a successful or an unsuccessful person, we are all 'work in progress'

Good luck :-)

I doubt any kit in 40yrs will be able to read hard drives and TF cards, so they will probably end up in a museum with a little display reading "corrupted hard drive containing a million stamp sized images" (judging by the resolutions available by then lol... 25k probably)

I printed a couple of books of my best stuff... they are for handing down, that's it really.

Very rare I get the chance to use the video side of the Canon, but I switched from Nikon to canon 7Dmk1 to give it a go since I last attempted video work some time ago in 2016. Recently did a video for a rock band in London and Essex.

Your sincere thoughts appreciated, not forgetting I have very little experience compared to photography.

I've recently bought the Manfrotto 055 Xpro 3 and the Xpro 3 head and just practised using it, though not on a shoot. All I can say is f*** me, it's a serious piece of kit. It's solid as a rock, and even without the centre column raised it places my camera's viewfinder at all but eye level (I'm 5' 11"), so no having to raise the centre column with the instability doing so causes. My current tripod, the Manfrotto 190CLB, looks like a toy in comparison. It's served me well over the years but I felt it was time for a change and I'm really chuffed with my choice. Can't wait to use it on a shoot, especially for some near ground level shots with its tilting centre column. The only negative I could find from my quick familiarisation with everything is the fact there's only 1 small screw to lock the head in place, rather than the 3 on the 190. Even with the head screwed onto the tripod and the small locking screw tightened as much as I dared, I was still able to unscrew the head with not too much effort. Now retightened, I'll make sure to keep a screw driver in my camera bag and check the screw regularly. Like I said, though, that's the only negative I could find; over all this seems like a brilliant setup. Edit: I forgot to mention the handles on the head - with just a pull they extend outwards, making them easier to use when the camera's attached (no fiddling about with awkward to access stubby ones), then just push back in when packing away after a shoot. Awesome.

I had a go at wedding photography last year for friends...... never again! It is very hard work.

My advice is to make sure you got a very good assistant who can carry your stuff from room to room.

Good luck!

Hi all

Do any off you use Photo Mechanic software?

I like to know is it any good for archiving your photos and how fast it with your work flow? Is it better than Lightroom?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks

In a few days from now this post will be a year old.

I guess my original question still applies...but also, now, to the fact that nothing has changed in all that time....despite various assurances.




I am still working on it. Yes, it is taking longer than I initially hoped but I can assure you I am still working on it :-)

Hi,

I'm selling my Lencarta Ringflash Kit

Safari Li-on 600 Ring Flash Head with Li-On battery pack with case.

Good working order, hardly been used. £450 collection probably preferable.

I can send a photo of kit if you like?

Location in London.

Thank you for your replies.

As many of you have surmised one of the main reasons I have decided on an all day shoot is to take advantage of deals offered by the model/mua/studio. I have a number of ideas I'd like to try out and an eight hour shoot (with breaks of course) seemed a ideal solution if planned properly.

My friend's concern was that of booking a model with whom I'd not worked before for eight hours, relying solely on her references. It seems he's not the only one with such reservations which has given me food for thought.

My Canon ipF5100 A2 printer has a printhead failure so I am selling it either for repair or possibly separating for spares.
It is in physically mint condition having been very well looked after. Of the 12 ink cartridges, 8 are nearly full whereas 4 need replacing.
The printer takes sheet paper or roll paper and already has a roll feed fitted to take 17" wide roll paper.
The printer is on a Canon stand, which originally cost £200 (just the stand) and if bought as a whole lot, I will include a new roll of paper (cost £95) .

If bought as a whole, I am looking for £200 ono, if you want the stand and/or good ink cartridges then make a sensible offer.

The printer must be collected in person from Guildford, Surrey.

can I ask what size videos need to be for uploading onto websites? Thanks John



OK, now thats an even more obteuse question.

The answer depends on loads of factors.

What is the length of the video?
What resolution?
What format?
and what codec?

When I shoot commercially I'm often asked to provide several formats. I'm sure you've noticed on many websites they have normal, HD and movile versions of the same video. Sometimes you can choose or override, but often these days the website will pick up what kind of equipment you are on and feed you the respective video that is best for your equipment.

Why are you telling us this? It feels like a thinly disguised promotion for this program.



I was merely explaining to RedBaron why LR/PS aren't really suitable for my employer's needs.  I have already said JPEGMini looks ideal if it weren't for its (IMO) extortionate costs ($199 per month for the 'server' variant) so I posted this thread in the hope somebody may have some sensible suggestions for alternative batch processing / size reduction packages that allegedly maintain the image quality (as JPEGMini claims it does), bearing in mind we're after a fire-and-forget solution that'll sniff out images across and entire drive and automatically work on all of them without further intervention.

But thanks for your comment, it's been most helpful.

Quote from Biggles485
Fair enough but if talking about "stalking fans" then it brings into consideration tagging images, giving references etc as it doesn't take a generous to follow a link from a model via the photographer / Mua whoever to view those images, so back to my original point if a model doesn't want images used or seen do not post them!

If others want that facility then as long as it doesn't affect me no worries but I still don't see the need as I thought a model wanted to be seen, stalking on the other hand is a different matter and if bad needs to be investigated by the law



*sigh*  I merely used stalking as an example and not in a criminal/danger way but more of them being a nuisance,  but regardless of the reasons someone feels this feature is in their interests to have member-only visibility then who are we to judge?  It does seem utterly beyond your comprehension that anyone could genuinely want this.

Bear in mind many other modelling sites have this facility in place.  Again, it's down to each individual member if they wish to activate it or not, it's really no big deal and I fail to see why you're so opposed to it.
