    OK, so I got a job with Cubberly, and had my working interview yesterday. We were shooting for westerville north for their yearbook, and they've got a funny rule about not wanting ANYONE looking right at the camera. Made my life hell, I bet I deleted 100 or so of ppl that just happened to notice me. THese are creme of the crop, i shot about 50 pics per event. If you care, I was there from 9:45-3:45

    Thoughts? I'm trying to do more of the candid non-action stuff, too. Action is great but they need more than just that for the yearbook, don't they?
     
  2. not bad, need to work on shooting indoors a bit more though :o

    I get paid 9/hr, which ain't bad, but I'm not totally happy with it. I only shot like 200 pics *shrug* but it took me 6 hours :)
    I keep copyright of my photos, but my little agreement is they pay to use whichever ones they want. Doesn't mean I can't use them, but I probably can't sell them to the parents (customers of the yearbook... if they have the pics they wouldn't buy the book, now would they?)

    now for the moment of truth:

    Tell me, oh wise master. How do you set your white balance to a gym with the shitty cycling lights, and 2 open windows that let in noontime sunlight? I'm just curious, because I can't really think of a good way. I didn't have enough light for anything less than iso 1600, and it still wasn't really enough at f2.8. What settings did I mess up? Honestly, enlighten me :squint:

    Damnit, I can't edit this into the previous post >.<

    set the white balance to an average temperature point such as ... 3800 Kelvin and/or shoot with raw and use the high-color rendering fluorescent white balance setting.

    :cool:

    so this isn't really a good career choice just a side job?

    I'm 18 and still in high school. It's a great side job, and I'm not ready for a career yet. I think a good step toward career is "graduate highschool". Then probably college.

    sigh... what happned to english?

    by the way, nice outdoor pictures. You need to practice more with the indoor pictures. I know that they are hard, Ive tried it myself. Its so hard to get enough light with out blurring an action shot.
     

  24. + strobes ftw
     
  25. Someone on OT used to shoot BEAUTIFUL indoor shots... I dont remember who it was.. :o :wtc:

    I miss those pics
