    Matting and Framing

    Not sure if this is the best place to post this, but as a group of film users, I'm hoping there are a handful of you that are DIY enough that you've ventured into framing. Throughout the year I have about 300ish prints that I mat and frame. Up until this year this hasn't been a problem but all...

    Camera Repair - Learning and specific light meter question

    I teach film photography at a high school, and we blow through cameras. We get so many donated to us and a few years ago we bought a whole new set, but out of 60+ students we probably only have about 20 working cameras. To avoid mounting repair/shipping costs (since no one in the area seems to...

    Christmas Backgrounds?

    I've looked a little bit through previous threads and feel like I've exhausted google, so hopefully you guys can help! I'm trying to put together a Christmas backdrop for portraits. I have a tree, bench, presents sort of scene, but nothing I like to put it in front of! Last year I used gels to...

    AF only works when it feels like it.

    Apologies if this has already been asked/answered. I'm helping out at a studio (sitting at the studio now waiting for an appt) and they're using equipment I'm not terribly familiar with (I'm a Nikon girl, they have all Canon). Anyway, I've been doing a lot of shoots that start in the studio...

    Representing yourself as a second shooter.

    This summer I collaborated with a local photographer to help fill in gaps in my schedule as her second shooter. I honestly had never shot as a second, and when I hire someone on as my second, I do things completely different - I'm a little in the dark here. When we hooked up, she told me that...

    Apology from students to unwitting victims ;)

    I teach darkroom photography at a high school, and want to compose a letter for my students to keep in their camera bags "apologizing" if they are stopped in a situation for photographing for an assignment. I'm not exactly sure what to include. I want it to be a little humorous, and excessive...

    Installation advice? Photographs on glass...

    Relating to my most previous post, I have a show tomorrow that initially I decided I wanted to mount my photographs between two pieces of glass and backlit. I know this isn't a strong archival method, it's just for the one-night show. I'll be offering matted prints for sale. A few questions...

    What am I doing?

    I'm finally working in the darkroom again. I've been teaching in one for two years and trying to juggle several jobs as well as my own business that I'm way out of personal practice for my own work and knowledge. I have a show coming up in a little over a week. It's been nice to have a kick...

    Picture-in-Picture troubleshoot?

    I have no idea what this problem is called and couldn't come up with terms to search for an answer, so apologies if this has been brought up! One of my students is working on a roll she did down in the gulf, right before the oil spill...so the images mean a lot to her and can't easily be redone...

    Teaching photography and workshops.

    To eliminate questions or irrelevant answers, a quick intro before my questions: -I have a BFA in photography from a good, well known university. -I have a strong handle on photographic techniques, foundations of art, and the history of both. -I currently teach black and white darkroom and...

    Saying thanks?

    In the past, one of my favorite studios I worked for used to write hand written thank you notes to every single client. Very time consuming, but well worth the effort, I think. I've been doing this so far but decided to go an extra step for my wedding clients. My sister is a consultant for...

    "Proof" books?

    A studio I used to work for used to offer a free gift with certain packages, it was like a proof book but it was wallet size, and made out of a heavy board, with one or two images per page, per side, and spiral bound. Another studio had a cute wallet book similar to that, that had a leather...

    Catch lines.

    I saw the post below about photography quotes, and I was hoping maybe you guys can help me out with this! On Friday I'm hosting a fundraiser for the photography department in the school. The other teacher and I have decided to sell bumper stickers this year for an extra boost in sales. I'm...

    O hi!o

I have my BFA in photography, have been working in studios here and there, started teaching photography and...
