Subject:Keeping EXIF data after edit?
Security:Public
Mood:creative

Is there a way to make sure that all the photographs I take have their EXIF data, even after I've edited in Photoshop?

I've noticed on a few photographs that they still have their EXIF data after they have been edited with just adding a border and stamp

Subject:What's the ideal price range?
Security:Public
Mood:artistic

So I'm pretty much starting out as a freelance photographer. While I've done shoots for people in the past, I never had a legitamate price package for people. Generally I would charge by hour (around $100/hr) and if there is any extras such as need for prints, I would just up the price a little relative to prices for printing. Usually I would include the CD with all of the photos in JPG unedited, and then include editing as an extra surcharge. Though my method of charging sounds a little lax, my question to all of you guys is how anyone else here goes about charging for shoots, say, for family portraits and weddings-or even model shoots. I'd appreciate some feedback and would definitely be interested to know how to go about charging for my work.

I'm fan of webcams. They are reflecting the world incessantly - day by day, hour after hour.. You are a witness of changes happening to the universe. Hot sun on the sides of pyramids comes after icy moon - live cams - live pictures. http://www.webcam-list.com/blog/2007/10/exclusive-live-view-of-pyramids-of.html

I have a digital rebel and I've been using the lens that came with it. I'm guessing a better lens would make my pictures look better. any suggestions?

Subject:Lighting a large area for photography
Security:Public

I am going to help some artists photograph a large scale set of murals they have done in grayscale on white.
The walls are 32 feet long and 20-22 feet tall.

We have a set of three lamps (they're checking the model -- borrowed from one of their friends) which we will put diffusion boxes on, they have barndoors currently.
I have a set of three novatrons all with umbrellas... and also access to a set of Britek lamps....

Should we buy/borrow/rent a LARGE scale lamp and just use one, then climb the scaffolding to 1/2 way and take our images that way?

Any advice on this large scale lighting project will be appreciated..

Thanks

Subject:looking for a photo challenge-like community
Security:Public

I'm looking for an LJ community that is like photochallenge but is focusted more on highly modified digital art photos rather then realistic photos... Where there is still a theme each week, but if I want to photoshop hitler into the background or turn someone into a smurf so be it.

Anyone have any suggestions?

I scanned a B&W neg and it has an orange hue (because my scanner always thinks its scanning color negs), but how should I change it to B&W in Pshop 7? Is there a difference between 'image->adjustments->desaturate' and 'image->mode>grayscale?' Which would you use? Or is there another/better way?

How do I keep the aperture open on a 50mm f/1.8 FD mount lens so I can reverse mount it for macros?

Right now, there's a ton of vignetting.  (I'm stacking it on a 50mm f/1.8 EF mount)

Subject:enlarging photos from negatives
Security:Public

this is a really basic question, but i can't figure out how to word it correctly to find the answer on google.

i have a regular ole slr film camera, get my film developed at a regular ole camera shop, and have some pictures i'd like to get enlarged. (yes, i still have the negatives). what is the "largest" size i could theoretically get a photo enlarged to without problems?

also - is there any advantage to shooting pictures on slides, as opposed to 35mm film?

Subject:Pentax SFX
Security:Public

I'm pretty new to photography, so bear with me. I normally use my Canon A-1, which I love. However, I only have a 50 mm lense for it. I have a Pentax SFX with 80 mm and 210 mm lenses. I'd like to do some shooting with it tomorrow.

My problem is I don't have the instruction manual. I have it set on manual mode, but I can't find the film speed and shutter speed settings. I don't even know if it has those setting, or if it's just manual aperture. I'd really like to use this camera, so if someone can give me information about it or direct me to somewhere that has information, that would be really, really great. Thanks very much.

(I also posted this to cameraquestions. If it shows up twice on your friends page, I'm sorry. I just really would like some help.)

I'm not sure there's even an answer to this question because it may have to do with personal vision. I know that 50mm is considered to be a "normal" focal length, but what focal length is considered to be "normal?" (As in, what is seen through the lense is the same size as seen with the naked eye.) I shoot sports a lot and from what I see, I think it's between 90-115mm. Does anybody know an exact focal length? Or, is it a mattter of your own vision?

and cuz question-only posts to photo communities are lame...Collapse )
