That has got me trying to remember some of the other advances that came and went over that time. Flash bulbs gave way to those magic cubes, though I stuck to the real thing in one of those folding reflectors of course. Cokin filters were a must have for quite a while. And we argue about degrading the image by leaving UV filters on these days! My one attempt at using very high speed film. (3200 ASA/ISO) produced results more akin to a poor impresssoinist painitng. Kodak having to scrap their entire line of polaroid copies after losing and expensive court battle. Oh the irony in retrospect. I still recall the many articles imperiously explaining why digital would never beat film. Just a few years before I bought my first Digital camera a Canon 300D.Just before that I am sure there was a digital insert you could put into your SLR to replace the film

I seem to remember getting fleeced over the latest 'colour developer' that was going to solve all thse critical developing issues by putting the chemicals into easy to use spray cans!

The thing that amzes me is that the modern digital SLR is still using the same basic mechanics in terms of shutter and lens as the first SLR's though. I do remember trying a Fuji with a digital viewfinder and being less than impressed

Quote from AndyGStudios
There is a small caveat to that mind, they promise you a shoot, then talk you into covering their kids party first, or some birthday or other... which you do in good faith, then they don't show. You later find out they've rung round getting prices, and settled on Mr Gullible cos it's free init TF or so they got told or read. Or they want a shoot, which you do, only to find out the pics can never see the light of day by request... the lady gets her dream shoot, you get nothing of value in return other than the joy of providing hours of work for chuff all in the end. The word is out on TF, and finding paid work as a photographer is getting harder and harder; magazines are on it, newspapers are on it, fashion houses are on it... and it's always payment by credit, or i'll tell my friends, or i'll put your card in the window... or some other form of pay off that may even be costing someone other than them. I don't give these people the time of day... they don't respect there are bills to be paid, so I don't respect them right back. In the end they will probably do it on their phone anyway. Public beauty portraits have given way for the most part by the selfie et al, and everyone who owns a camera in some form, calls themselves a photographer - owning one, and knowing how to use one are two completely different things; but try explaining that to Joe public. Rich types that would rather have a pro 8x10 ft print on their wall will probably call you, or those wanting their weddings done for £50... (and you should, cos you're better than that guy down the road... and he said he would if you don't) but that's about it these days unless you can flood micro-stock sites for a pittance return. Put things online and some grimy phukka finds a commercial use for it without asking, or spreads it round instagram claiming they need your donations to keep collecting and posting... "THEY CAN'T DO IT WITHOUT YOU" allegedly. One way or another we get screwed over in the end, there's always someone making money from your work, making some of us question if it's even worth doing in the current climate. Good lucking making any yourself mind. Alt used to be a niche, now it's mainstream - not my thing at all. Doesn't leave much does it... and don't get me started on models leaving the scene on grounds of safety because of touchy feely togs. And the good ones, get looked at like pervs... or we're expected to ask now if we want topless, or nude, or adult, like it's the only thing people shoot. In short it's getting a bad rap, and a bad rep. Some photographers don't help matters either by showing up, doing a shoot, and don't provide images. *shakes head slowly in disbelief* now wonder the world is jaded against us, and why people insist we pick up every cost involved. It's all on the decline in one form or other. And I don't think we've hit the bottom just yet, when we do, i'm hoping for something of a bounce. I'm going out for a walk... I may be some time Get some air, count to ten. Speen vented /rant over... sorry.


Feel better for that

You are quite wrong of course. At least when it comes to the real world outside these sites. There is a reasonable living to be earned in portrats but the caveate is earned. That means a lot of training in sales and marketing as well as photography. Which does not come cheap. I get quite dissappointed if I don't get at least £250 from a one hour portrait session. It is alas about self belief too. If you do not believe your work is worth real money you won't have the confidence to ask for it..

I think this is more like the truth of the matter.




Yeah i've heard this type of talk first hand at my old studio a few times. One photographer's dying wish was to work with this one model who was attending for a booked shoot - she came out of the session, had a quick chat with him, and when he left, that was the response... the guy passed on 2 weeks later, Colin, lovely bloke too, RIP . Such a shame. Mainly a landscape chap but wanted to have a crack at doing a model shoot.

With judgemental types, you will always waste your time unless you look like Remmington Steele and drive a fancy car. Best avoided imho, not worth the stress or mental scarring.

Read the models feed on FB or Twitter if they have one, or forum posts, if they appear to be constantly whining, complaining, or criticising - might pay to think twice before you book.

Went today and parted with more money than I had planned... picked up a nice new tripod, Manfrotto camera slider, speedlite diffuser and sensor cleaning kit (as I fancied giving it a go for the first time). I now have a completely dust free sensor, so no trips to the camera shop required.

I also note a rather appalling drone demonstration near the food area - the pilot managed to entangle the drone in the netting, managed to shake it loose but failed to catch it as it smashed into three pieces on the floor.

The audience soon dispersed after that.

Thank you very much for posting. Sad news indeed.

you mean it?

imagine one model says yes and turns up ..

Then I have to borrow my wifes car ( mine loses half a liter water per day), and then WORK ???



My car got a broken thermostat housing. Buying spare parts with the other car I hear metallic noise, front left spring broken. So for the start no shoot



The thermostat is fixed, so I am on the road again.
The spring is waiting for better weather ... assumed I go not photographing then

Thank you for the suggestion of this cheekybetter transparency of the renewal/expiry date would be helpful from the WorldPay system, this can all be seen within the WorldPay portal; however, I will investigate with WorldPay to see if we can get this information within your account settings here without having to log into WorldPay.

Great suggestion, thank you.

I mentioned this conviction to a model today and she said:

"I don't care what the papers say. They are a great company to work for and I enjoy working for them. That fact is I do my job and I get paid and I go home it's very simple! Thank you"

To which I said:

"That's probably what people said about the SS during World War II and jimmy savile."

Some people just don't care.

Hello

This THURSDAY 2ND MARCH...

Our weekly Thursday night group shoot will feature the lovely Lisamichelle this week.

There are still places available. £13 per photographer.

7pm till 10pm



HOW DO OUR THURSDAY NIGHT GROUP SHOOTS WORK???

Well they are usually quite laid back. The evenings are fashion based and we book a good standard model each week. Depending on numbers, we sometimes run to 2 models. With having 2 studios there is always plenty of room to accommodate everyone. However we do keep an eye on numbers as we want everyone to have a decent amount of shoot time.

We work across 2 studios and always try and have a fairly creative evening.

Plenty of tea and coffee available.

Come and try us...

Old faces as well as new ones welcome...

We have an event page to advertise this.

https://a248.e.akamai.net/secure.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/b/e/0/9/highres_449328649.jpeg


The workshop is open for up to a maximum of 7 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 Penny. At PRP our workshops are run on a one-to-one basis between model and photographer. Refreshments are provided free throughout the day, as is ample free parking. This is a great opportunity for experienced photographers and amateurs alike. 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 7 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

Thanks MG and I **DO** realise you meant it in a nice way (as stated)....but I ain't going to be changing how I am. I quite like it....not having to be chatty because I dont want to be. I find honesty is always the best policy so I dont agree it was a terrible response.
The studio was never a for profit venture...and I do get paid shoots that pays for its upkeep.
I have other hobbies/ventures now which are far more lucrative and use my creative talent equally but don't quite give me the buzz of a good shoot. That's really the ONLY part I miss. So there is some mojo lurking down there somewhere.
Anyhow - I appreciate you mean well...
@redbaron - Im not shy, nervous etc...I'm just not chatty...I prefer myself that way If I feel the need to better myself photographically I'll take another gander at that site, thanks.

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.

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.

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.
