Re: Online image sales with Smugmug

On that Cosplay themed thing, how might this work: Rather than using the authentic view camera and all that would require, could a modern dslr be contained in something that resembled a view camera, perhaps with the taking lens actually being used. A tethered computer's monitor under the focusing ho...

Re: Online image sales with Smugmug

Oh, before I forget. On the same note... One other idea I've had was to rent a booth area at car shows that allow car owners to drive their car into a large tent with a nice nondescript background and get their portrait taken with their car. Again, people are prequalified by filling out a form and ...

Re: Online image sales with Smugmug

I really hate it that I often sound like the voice of a wet blanket on the flame of exuberance. There are a number of things that I enjoy photographing purely for pleasure or self-fulfillment there are some things out there I could photograph for monetary gain that I won't because they just don't su...

Re: Online image sales with Smugmug

I love your idea about the steampunk camera. I don't know anything about the people who participate in cosplay or comic conventions so I don't know if you have customers. I do know the contraptions they come up with are interesting and there ought to be no shortage of subject matter to photograph. I...

Re: Online image sales with Smugmug

Events are a tough gig, especially these days. Before a photographer can get to a computer to download a picture someone with an phone or tablet can have an image online. Will it be a good one? Will the photographer's be of better quality? Neither question matter because that phone or tablet picture...

Re: Online image sales with Smugmug

Can you describe the events, what it takes to get there, the equipment required and the labor requirements for shooting and the processing. Putting an extra $80 in the bank now and then could be great; Only making $80 once a week or a month isn't.

Re: Online workshop with Don Giannatti

Thanks Steven, I appreciate the comments. I feel the first one was too soft on the focus too. That's another reason for the reshoot. Of course, after the thought I should have cleaned up the message even more to read; "Revealing beauty through visual truthfulness." I'll have to redo it wi...

Re: Online workshop with Don Giannatti

I like the reflection(s) on the new version better. I like the continuation across the top of the bulb rather than the broken line. I also like the revised message in the statement. I'm sure you'll Ace the assignment.
