    Movin On Up, and Could Use Some Advice...

    It's been some time since I posted on here, but I haven't been involved in the internet the same way I was three years ago. Anyway, for the past couple years, I've been shooting freelance, but very lax freelance. I was able to make a [very] modest living taking photos in clubs and bars, but...

    Comparing Canon's 20D, 30D, and 40D

    Recently, I bought a Canon 10D on craigslist, nearly new, with a basic Canon 75-300mm lens, 2gb card, and a case all for $180. I was so giddy that I didn't know what to do, getting a professional level DSLR for under 200$ with a lens and case??!? I was buying it as a backup for my 40D, and I...

    Lightroom 1.4---Who's tried it?

    I currently work with Adobe's Lightroom 1.3, but I'm thinking of getting the 1.4 if there aren't any problems with it. Just want to know what the difference is, and if you like it more or not. Thanks!

    Is this a bad Business Move?

    Ok, so a couple weeks ago, I didn't have anything to do on a Friday night. The DJ I recently did press photos for was performing at a local club she used to have residency at, and invited me to come and take pictures. She put me in contact with the promoter, and she called and formally asked...

    First Paid Portrait Session

    The amount of paid work I've been getting is increasing every day, enough that I can say I am supporting myself with my photography now. I feel accomplished, but still a little uneasy because this is all new to me. I had my first paid portrait session the first of June, and got the images to...

    Press Photo Quality-Help...?

    So I just recently did my first set of Press Photos for a DJ, and I'm new to all the technicalities, and did a search for what I need, but didn't really find anything relevant. My question: I use Adobe Lightroom 1.3 and Photoshop CS3, and I use Lightroom to view and optimize my RAW images...

    Going off-camera with my Flashes

    I've been wanting to get into off-camera flash for a while, but not really sure where to start. I've done a lot of reading, and looked on Strobist, and the Flickr group for Strobist, but I haven't found the answers to everything yet, and I was hoping for some help. I've been doing a lot of...

    Decisions about which equipment to use

    I was recently hired as a staff photographer for a nightlife networking website, and one of the events I am shooting is a fashion show/party, so I'll be taking runway pictures some of the night and party photos the rest of the time. I [feel like I] made an excellent score tonight by getting a...

    Debating between Canon Lenses

    I know that it is time for me to get a new lens, but I am undecided about which one to get. Right now, my walk-around lens for my 40D is the Canon 28-135, and it is not working for me. The image quality is very nice, but man, 28mm is just not wide enough. After taking photos at a party...

    Party Photos

    Opinions, anyone? I recently went to a party hosted by Burning Man Chicago, and took photos while I was there. I've had lots of hits to my site, but it's a website, and comments don't really work there. So I was wondering if anyone wanted to give me some feedback on them...

    Plugin for Adobe's Lightroom: Borders and Watermarks on Export!!!

    After searching for a way (because I knew there was one) to either put a watermark on or border around my images in batch form in Lightroom, I finally found one. I am really surprised that no one on this Forum has posted anything about it, because it's absolutely fantastic! I work in batches of...

    Watermarking

    I like the idea of watermarks...you know that your name is on the image so people know where to go and stuff...but it just takes SOOOO long to go into photoshop and manually put my website on every single picture I take. I know there has to be some type of watermarking program that does it in...

    "You are another me."

    That's how the Mayans would introduce themselves. I just noticed this thread section yesterday but I didn't really have time to post a hello. I've been a member of this forum since November 2006 I think? But I only just recently started using it regularly. I would call myself a new...

    Portfolio Choices

    So I recently had some comments about my portfolio not being exactly what it could be. I know it needs some work, but I don't really know where to go from here. The kind of jobs I am aiming for are photographing (in no particular order): Children Weddings Nightlife/Parties People Pets Events...

    Getting Published Etc.

    So I would say that I am now a professional photographer. I have a website, www.carolinedixey.com (I'm still working on my bio and constantly adding old galleries) and I have business cards that match my website, and they look quite nice if I may say so. Now the only issue I am having is...

    Nightclub Photography

    I just got my second job working in Nightclubs; the last job I had like this was over a year ago, and I did not get to retain any rights to the photos I took. This is different now, and I have full rights, and am responsible for uploading them. The only thing is, the photographer who hired me...

    Working with RAW

    I got my Canon 40D last week, after owning my 350D for almost 2 years. I have some university schooling on photography, but film, and I definitely feel humbled in the presence of my 40D. I have decided to go back to the books and re-learn the basics, since the past two years with my 350D have...
