    Ok so I just went to a sushi bar to get some grub, by myself [:wtc:], started talking to a guy who happened to be a manager of one of the biggest clubs in town. I introduced myself, told him I was a photog, and gave him a card. We then went on talking and he told me they were looking for a new photog, and said I can come in friday, meet other managers, and maybe cover an event they are having.


    I guess if I do this I should get a diff card for it, as my card is mainly for modeling, etc. Doesn't sound too hard, and sounds like alot of fun to meet people. :naughty:




    I guess I would be using my external on camera flash.. Maybe a wide angle lens or something?



    Sounds like hard part would be getting stuff up on site FAST, making it safe from pic thiefs, and set up a way to sell it.


    Thanks :eek3:

    Turbodude is the most experienced here, so he'll be able to shed a lot of light on it.

    From my experiences, it was easy and fun, but I got burnt out from doing it every weekend (had to drive from the suburbs all the way downtown after my server job). You meet a lot of people, some cool, some stupid.

    I used my D70s, SB-600, and Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 and did alright.

    Tape a mirror on your lens and always keep a few bumps on it.

    Now there's a reason to eat sushi.

    I suppose shooting wide open at under 20mm is the key :dunno:

    No, the hard part is that you don't seem to know what you're doing. You're setting yourself up for massive fail when the pics don't turn out.

    .

    on camera flash with a wide angle lens is going to give you shots that you don't like.

    how wide are you thinking of shooting?

    Well ar first I plan on using my 28-105mm, until I can get a better lens for it.


    This is no permanent gig, and the first time is just a trial.
