Today you will have to complete your assignments from this week so far. I will go over Photomerge Flickr group as well.
If you’re planning on taking blubonnet pics. This may be the last best day you have till Sunday. By next week they will begin to die and you’ll be left with weeds. Unless you are traveling to north Texas this is your last chance here.
Grades for senior photos will go in this weekend as well photomerge.
The following are answers to the question I posted online:
First let me say thank you for the knowledge and information shared here within this group. Maybe one day when I’m not teaching I’ll have a chance to meet for lunch. Today in class I’m teaching the concept of pricing to my Advanced Commercial Photography class at the Career Center. So I need your input if you don’t mind assisting with class. Here are the questions:
How many images do you give to your client usually for an hour session? Probably on a thumb drive or for download.
For a mini session like the current bluebonnets. How much time? How many pics? Cost?
Thank you for your assistance. (Don’t feel like answering here please feel free to email me email@example.com)
Kathryn MullerClients get the images they purchase… Are you teaching advanced pricing with an all-inclusive model? I can tell you I would offer 10-20 from an hour session , but those would need to be purchased in addition to the session fee. That’s industry-standard for commercial pricing, not a shoot and burn model. All pricing needs to be based off of cost of business, including mini sessions- at a minimum, 3 times your cost- 33% to taxes, 33% for COB, and 33% to reinvest in your business, equipment, and pay yourself.
Jesse HendersonThey can choose one image from the 30+ I show. Anything extra is extra. Digital images are only in my top package. If digitals are in your low package, there is no incentive to spend more money.
Today we’ll begin with some liquify. Understand I haven’t gone over this with anyone yet. How did I miss this.
Also today. Lightroom add ons.
Photomerges. We’ll begin the process of creating and turning those in later this week.
The above photomerge image was taken by a former student Jesse Drohen who I taught many many years ago. He now has his own photography business in Austin
called AustinPixels. Jesse’s full time job is working at CISCO corporation in Austin.
Today and tomorrow you have to work on and complete the senior edits of your senior. 8 – 12 images. You will put them together using Lightroom.
If you’re running out of ideas on to edit an image why not go ahead and open Lightroom. It’s not hard to figure out and has lots of tools just for photos. And there are LOADS of free downloads available.
Reminder. Spring / Easter / Wildflowers project is Due the first week in May. Do Not Wait!!!Bluebonnets will be at their best for the next two weeks. Plan your weekends!
