    Photoshoot locations

    Thanks for all the great replies!! No offense Keith, but I'm not sure how well telling people to meet me somewhere at 5AM will work :) I am not a morning person myself, so shooting later in the evening is a better option for me. Thanks again!!

    Photoshoot locations

    I was wondering what other photographer's do that do not have their own space or studio to shoot in for portrait sessions? I could rent space, but that eats into cost, and I could shoot outdoors, but here in GA the summer heat is terrible. Thanks.

    Bouncing flash and white balance

    Thanks guys. Yes, there are also wooden cross beams to deal with. I'm thinking to change my strategy now to diffuse the flash and shoot on camera possibly. Not ideal, but I think I will have less color casting to deal with.

    Bouncing flash and white balance

    Ok thanks, I do shoot RAW. Anyone else have experience bouncing flash into a taller wooden ceiling? Will I get enough of the flash bounced back down or will the wood absorb too much of the light?

    Bouncing flash and white balance

    I will be shooting in a church with high wooden ceilings and my plan was to bounce flash up. Will this affect my white balance and any recommendations on how to compensate for it? Thanks.

    Backdrop options

    I was wondering what are some of the common backdrops that other photogs keep in stock? I currently only have a roll of grey seamless and white muslin. I would like to purchase more seamless paper rolls, but not sure of what colors to get. Thanks!!

    Taking orders for team and individual photos

    Hello all, I have been asked to take individual and team photos for a youth soccer league. I was wondering what others do to keep tack of the names of the kids photos you take so the parents receive the correct photos they ordered of their child? Thanks.

    Lightroom setting wrong lens profile

    Hello all, I have a canon t3i with a tamron 24-70 lens. When importing my raw files into Lightroom it selects a sigma lens profile instead of tamron. I have to change this every time in the develop module. Anyone else have this issue?

    Eye-Fi ProX2 wireless card and iPad

    Thanks for replying Light Guru. Did you use the Mobi while you were shooting to view the images on the iPad? I am not really concerned with controlling my camera, but really do like the possibility of viewing my images on the iPad's larger screen while I am shooting.

    Family portrait lighting

    kundalini, you hit the nail on the head. These will be family shots of military members at an awards banquet. They are not looking for artistic and dramatic styles, they would like photos they can send to grandma and other family. Thank you guys for the suggestions!! :)

    Family portrait lighting

    Hello all, Would like to hear how others would setup lighting for a family of 3-4. I have two Alien Bees 800 strobes, Canon 430exII speedlight, large softbox, umbrella, and strip light. This will be shot indoors and I'd like to get nice soft/even light (no shadows). Thanks.
