That's the nature of the beast, the mention of scarce work, is probably a factor. But, like OP I do wish that a more careful look at more than just 'paid work' is done.
Just a couple that made me wonder what I'd put in the casting, one was a 3 hour shoot, stating , clearly Newcastle area, got a reply from Sussex.
Another studio shoot, gave day, date and times, I was asked if I could change day, date and time, as model worked that day?

The HSM one is worth loads more than the non HSM version. I had the non HSM version and to be entirely honest I preferred it to my Canon 24 - 105 L Series. If you get a decent one they are amazing. The DG's sell for around £250 + and the HSM's sell for as you said around about 400 mark...

There's two rather well known models who specialise in art-nude who have glamour/adult models with similar names, I don't think it's too much of a bother for a photographer to check who you are (I'd always look at a profile anyway as usernames can and will be confused) *.

* - that said, I do recall one of them saying they turned up to a shoot and the photographer saying something along the lines of "oh, I though you were the booby one"

I shoot quite a lot of fashion and beauty, but mostly TF! For all the reasons mentioned, it needs something extra being brought to the table, and this is tough to pull off with a small or non existent budget!

I would vote for that - assuming you mean to deal with the West Lothian question.

It has been a good night for democracy, Scotland, Great Britain, the Queen, the world, common sense - and those who would like to wipe the smirk off Fish face.

Delighted it was less close than forecast too.

Thats what I need I think...a low res video to play around with and learn techniques. The ten minute clip from my G1X was nearly 3GB...without any post processing which will add to the file size. Need to read the camera manual as well....I think I am recording at max quality at the moment.




3GB isn't much :/

Decent video editors (certainly on the PC) are hardware accelerated via the graphics card (mine is 10x faster than CPU alone and it's a shitty graphics card too) which can help export and overlaying effect immensely. 

Some (like Premiere IIRC, it's been years since using it) can render a small version (the rough cut as Crippen says) for editing with to speed up the editing process and when you go to the final render it uses the full-res one.

But to answer your question.... I would advise against reducing resolution & quality as artifacts and intraframes mean cutting/splicing etc. won't be as smooth and other effects such as colour smoothness & sharpness will suffer with lower bitrates.

Is it possible to make money as a model without doing nude or topless shoots? I'm not a prude or anything, just wouldn't be able to bring myself to do it knowing that friends/family could come across something!



You look great, I can't see why you wouldn't make money without doing nude work, but nude work would just get you much more money, quicker. Yes that's a shame you have the friends and family thing as a barrier. However, if you keep it non-adult, and classy, they might respect you in doing nude work. Nothing rude, crude or dirty about artistic nude, so maybe they might be even impressed by it.

It seems we have another sad individual out there pretending he works for Purestorm,
but this time he is claiming he can offer models £950/hr for topless modelling.
Neither he nor his mythical boss Helen work for the Purestorm Portfolio Hosting website.
Purestorm is NOT an Agency and this hosting site does not directly hire models.

Back by popular demand. Charlie is exclusive to PRP Studios and will be our subject model on our glamour workshop on Sunday 21st September 2014.
Charlie is returning to the studio for a fun filled studio day. She brings with her not only great modelling skills, but a personality you can’t help but love. Great at all styles of modelling from Portraits, Fashion through to Glamour and Lingerie.
http://photos3.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/3/7/3/e/highres_342434142.jpeg

Working to nude levels on the day, you are sure to get some great shot, while having fun on the way. Tea/Coffee/Cold Drinks available to help you through the shoot. Charlie will have plenty of outfit choices for your time to allow plenty of options.


The workshop is open for up to a maximum of 6 photographers and starts at 11:00 and finishes at 18:30. You can come and go whenever you want if you can't make the full day. On the day you get frequent and exclusive shooting access to Charlie. At PRP our workshops are run on a one-to-one basis between model and photographer. The atmosphere is friendly, and help that is needed is given by an experienced and professional photographer, who is on hand throughout the day.

These are popular workshops and are restricted to a maximum of 6 togs only, so confirm your interest at the earliest opportunity, as we hate to see people get disappointed on the day by arriving to a full house.

At £60 for the whole day it is tremendous value. So make a note in your diary and

How little could I have changed for the same, better, results: just the SSD disks ( which I did prior to my main upgrade ) ram was already maxed out & CPU was good for the chipset on the motherboard. Adding SSD's as boot & cache resulted in faster boot time, faster launch of applications. I also doubled the ram to 16gb... which in my experience (lots) is often the best place to start.. if you want to waste several weeks creating perflogs and load testing.. knock yourself out... I'd rather upgrade the obvious bottlenecks: RAM availability & disk read/write times. You'll get the best info via google, adobe and some independent sites...



+1


RAM first - 16Gb is good and cost effective
SSD - for swap file and data  - OS if you can reinstall.  (2 small SSD are better than one large)
larger/faster Graphic card will be more noticable with Video

Yes MAC is proable better for Video.

Hello!

I've sold my lights so now it's time to sell another as-new piece of kit.

It's the Super Boom 025 (black) with the Cine Stand0 08 (chrome). I've just done a thorough Internet search to find the cheapest available new in the UK:

http://www.calumetphoto.co.uk/product/manfrotto-black-light-boom-stand-included-/MN025BS/?tracking=%7Csearchterm:Manfrotto%7Cboom%20025

Direct from Manfrotto is £620!

http://www.manfrotto.co.uk/black-light-boom-stand-included

I'd describe my kit as practically mint, with everything working as it should do. There are a few tiny marks from very light and careful use; they're too small to show up clearly on photographs!

If you're interested, please get in touch with a sensible offer.

Thanks!

Firstly, thank you all for your input.
I am happy with the shots myself and as a first effort I thought I hadn't done bad.
I can see where I am going wrong now so it will be back to the drawing board and try again.
But this time more contrast and less light.

Thanks again.

We are Locking this thread to prevent it running out of control.

If anything this topic underscores four things:-

☼ Members should use internal mail to cancel shoots at the earliest opportunity.

☼ Members should try to resolve differences privately rather than publicly.

☼ Members should request Feedback Arbitration if they contest a Negative Recommendation.

☼ We have a thankless task trying to administrate even our simple Recommendations system.

Thanks everyone! Absolutely loving it so far ^_^ I was shooting at Maunsel House the other day, surrounded by beautiful rolling gardens and watching the peacocks strut around in the grounds from this magical stately home and thinking, "I wouldn't be doing this in London" ^_^



Well you could but the Queen might object. I'm sure prince Philip would be OK with it though.

I hope this was just a couple of pictures which happen to have been taken at a wedding rather than the images shot by the main wedding photographer?

Although I guess the "was the bride and groom happy with them?/thats all that matters comes into place"

If I got these back from my wedding I think I would have cried - if I got these back from a shoot where I had went to the bother of putting a dress on I probably would have cried.

Have a good look around what other wedding photographers are doing - These are just randomly picked out because I know the photographers -

http://www.lovegroveweddings.com

http://www.gloucesterphotographer.com

http://creativeweddingduo.com

http://www.gordonmcgowan.co.uk


My wedding photographer was -

http://johnbaikiephotography.com

Granted they will not all be within the budget of all wedding partners however all wedding photographers should strive to create crisp/clean images like the above. Yes people will pay for badly edited crap but it really should be a crime for people to charge money to do stuff like that.

For me - I wanted somebody who could capture the moments well as well as do pretty funky "set up" shots. I got what I paid for and was overjoyed.
