    RANT RANT RANT RANT

    Sadly these were the people who started scheduling fake appointments with me to waste my time. It took me two weeks to figure it out. I wont take legal action as I don't want to stir up more trouble. Funny thing is, I caved and gave them everything for half the original price including their...

    Angel Babies

    First of all I am so sorry for your loss. :hug:: Most parents beg me to do the angel wings. I have ended up having an angel event due to the overwhelming demand of requests for them. Looking at these photos again myself I can clearly see they are to soft, not sharp enough and camera shake...

    It's all about the babies...

    Thanks Everyone! I haven't been using my tripod but will start immediately. I will take in all the info and post some more soon to see if anyone thinks I might have improved on my camera shake and lighting. Thanks!

    Newborn shoot - cc please

    I know that parents love the third one. I haven't done it yet but hope to in the future, but I personally just don't like that type of photo. It's just a love it or hate it kind of pose. I absolutely love everything else.

    Beautiful Newborn

    I love them!! The second one is my favorite. I have to get one of those types of white rugs. I have the real soft white fluffy kind but it seems to get in to the babies faces to much. This looks much cleaner and nicer. Beautiful!

    It's all about the babies...

    This is just a few baby photos I have taken recently. I am not so good at lighting. I am really trying but lighting is something I am just not so great at. Still I thought these turned out pretty cute despite that fact. Hopefully they aren't to big. I don't post pics without copyrights anymore...

    Who is a good merchant to go through

    I have a small photography business that is new. I probably make about 12 thousand from it a year at this time (not taking out losses and expenses of course). I was using North American Bank Merchant but when they charged me without warning for the PCI compliance fee (I wasn't aware of the fee)...

    What do you think?

    So as a few of you may know I have been posting on here off and on through out the past few months. I have found that this is the most informative board with in my own opinion the most educated people in photography and the business in photography with the most experience. I consider myself on...

    Recommend a professional photo printer

    Thanks guys! I am not wanting one to print regular portraits for my customers. I know nothing about printing lol so that wouldn't be in my best interest. I am wanting one that is wireless so I can take it with me on Holiday sessions when I do certain specials at businesses where people get the...

    Recommend a professional photo printer

    I am going to purchase a printer to print my own portraits at my studio but would like some input on this before I make my purchase. I am looking at Canon printers but it doesn't have to be Canon. I would like the best quality that will print up to to a 8x10 and as small as a wallet. Plus...

    RANT RANT RANT RANT

    I try very hard to be nice to all of my customers regardless of who is being a super jerk or not, but this one takes the prize. They are now sending out message saying how much of an issue they had with me. Though I have analyzed it all can't figure out not one damn thing I have done wrong. I've...

    RANT RANT RANT RANT

    Since this is the business section I figured I'd post here. I hope that's okay. People are just mean this Holiday season!! I have one customer who has made the past couple weeks hell!!! I was three minutes late to their second appointment (retake) and since I'd taken their portraits before I had...

    Need help with kids in a photo session.

    Never add bribes like candy in to it!! You always need to keep in mind that you may offer them candy but what if the parents don't want them having it. It ticks me off so bad when I go places and people just offer my kids stuff without asking me before hand. I have a couple regular customers who...

    Christmas card templates for PS

    I searched around for about three months previous and finally settled on some they sell on ebay. I am still learning a lot about photoshop but I don't know what the heck I am doing wrong. The templates are 300dpi but for some reason they aren't high resolution when I go to print. :( I have never...

    Holiday Season 2008

    I am new at my business and therefor know I will not be as busy as most other photographers that have been doing it for a while, but is it just me or is this Holiday season more slower than last year. Even the two large commercial photography places I worked out a couple years ago have shared...

    Need some advice about a wedding I did ...

    Thank you everyone for the great advice!! I haven't heard from them yet (I've sent about five emails) and so I am just waiting to hear back from then. They haven't even seen their portraits yet (I have them up online waiting, but who knows when I'll hear back from them). I apprecaite the advice...

    Need some advice about a wedding I did ...

    My contract states no refunds unless I don't pull through for some reason. I'm just trying to decide what would be my best way to go if they request it. I definitely wouldn't refund my service fee as I did everything but the cd price I may or may not. I honestly don't think they did it to be...

    Everyone thinks they can be a pro! (RANT)

    I think everyone has to start somewhere. So long as people are honest about it who cares. Most of the newer photographers I see admit in their ads that they are just starting out. I've been doing photography for five years, not much time in terms of how long a lot of real pros out there have...
