    photo licensing agreements anyone?

    Hi all- A celeb I shot wants to license some of the images I shot of him. This is my first foray into the world of photo licensing. Does anyone have any recs for a good licensing agreement or any words of advice? I'm assuming he's going to want to use the images for his site and for publicity...

    Upgrading...Any Nikon Recs?

    Almost all of my shooting is indoors with strobes, FYI. I rarely shoot natural light images.

    Upgrading...Any Nikon Recs?

    What a spirited debate. I'm thankful to all of you who gave good advice, (and insulted by others), but that's okay. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I'm heading off to B&H tomorrow, and I will post what I get. Thanks!

    Upgrading...Any Nikon Recs?

    Hi all- I'm upgrading from my D70, after my camera crashed to the floor during a shoot (damn sync cord!). What would be your recs for a good Nikon used primarily for portraits and fashion? I want to make an investment now and not have to upgrade in a year. I'm looking at the D3X, but I've seen...

    Nikon not capturing images

    Thank you again to everyone who responded. I'll let you know if I repair, upgrade or both. I really should have a second body when I go on shoots, anyway. :)

    Nikon not capturing images

    No way! I love my Nikon. I used it incessantly. It was just a matter of time.

    Nikon not capturing images

    I formatted two cards, thinking that maybe I fried one. It's not capturing on either card. There were signs, though, that something was awry. When I last used the camera, some of the images were coming out purple, and some came out completely corrupted (broken into four quadrants, and purple...

    Nikon not capturing images

    Hi everyone- I just took out my D70 to take some shots, and while the AF is working, the flash is firing, the image is not coming up in the LCD, nor is the counter number changing. I changed memory cards, thinking that it was defective, but the camera is doing this with other cards, too. Is...

    Getting model releases signed

    No, I didn't write that. I wrote, "I think the language scares them..." There's quite a difference between that and "scary language". And I agree with you that people should not sign something they are not comfortable with. My point is that there isn't anything in the release that goes beyond...

    Getting model releases signed

    This has become an interesting debate, and I can't believe that my release problem was the impetus for it! Now, my dear friend Plato, the way you have reworded my original post makes me out to be the big bad wolf. By writing that, "the models were somehow obligated to sign whatever contract she...

    Getting model releases signed

    Thanks! I think I'm just going to reword the release and take out the scary language (without taking away my rights as a photographer), and follow the advice here to get it signed before we start. I'll just chalk these two people up to a bad experience, learn from it and move on. Thanks to...

    Getting model releases signed

    Okay, I'm sure this is not going to go over well, but it's a release, not a contract. (And I know you're all going to say that a release is a contract. I just don't think it should be a big deal for them. It's a standard release.) The release basically states that the images are mine, I can...

    Getting model releases signed

    It's not that I don't want them to read it. In fact, after I shoot the last shot, I give it to them, tell them to read through it, ask me any questions, and then sign it. I think the language scares them, and then they panic. If I send it to them ahead of time, they will either come in with a...

    Getting model releases signed

    Hello everyone- I do a lot of celeb work, and lately, I've had a few people balk at signing a model release. I've been shooting for 4 years now, and it's only in the past month or two that I've had people refuse to sign it at the shoot. I own an online magazine, and absolutely must have my...

    How'd They Do It??

    Hi everyone- I want to bring my photos to the next level and increase my PS skills. I like the look of Dave Hill (for some photos, not all!). I like the smoothness and slightly cartoonish effect. For those not familiar with him, here's a link: Dave Hill Photo I also like this photographer's...

    releasing unretouched images?

    Thanks for the advice, guys. As a rule, I never release non retouched images. I learned this the hard way, after a HORRIBLE retouch of one of my images was published (yellow skin, IMO, is never a pretty thing!). The MUA (makeup artist) probably has some basic PS skills and wants to try her hand...

    releasing unretouched images?

    Hi all- I did a shoot with a semi-celeb and the makeup artist asked me to send her unretouched images. I had already sent her the retouched ones. When you release images to people who've helped on a shoot (i.e. hair, makeup), do you only release retouched images, or do you give them...

    Yes, I'm on their site right now. They look good, but wanted to make sure I didn't miss anything better. Thanks!
