    used my trusty 28-70mm for the studio stuff, 180mm for outdoors

    the manager and artist really liked the shots (total of 120), so thats what counts right :hs:

    I think it was just like a boring set and yeah a boring model. The exposures are fine and eveything, but how much can you really do?

    whats with the red stuff at the bottom left? Its a bit distracting because you cant really tell what it is. It doesnt do much since you cant tell. If it was like lace or some shit it would be like chubby city

    thats shooting, then there's the editing, ftp/print/burn, and the time emailing/phone calls before and after, any get togethers or making a gallery



    thats why we start in the 125-150/hr range :hs:

    nice, do you charge for editing? or is your rate just 125-150 per hour just for the shoot, which includes the editing?

    depends on what it is. thats just sort of a basic start. 1.2 arch shoot is 500, full day 750. but thats an hour of editing and 10 minutes for a gallery, so its little to no back end work.

    weddings start at 1500 just for shooting, 0 product. that covers before hand, shooting and editing.

    etc

    but we all gotta start somewhere, just make sure everyone you're in contact with for shoots like this is thrilled with not only the work but what you're willing to do. Referrals are the key to the business.
