photo stuff

Several things:

I dramatically slam my door when arguing with Andy. After about a year of this, I sheepishly asked Andy to please glue the door back together since it started to separate out, and I occasionally pinch my fingers between the wood.

Someone told me: "I was looking to get headshots, and I realized the best headshot I got was from you. So will you take my headshots?" When I first got my D80 I was experimentally snapping away, and he loved my photo of him, and I gave it to him. That was over a year ago, so I said yes... and he was like: "When". I gave him a few dates, and told him that he can have a friend rate of $40 for headshots. And then I didn't hear from him again. That annoys me a little bit. Firstly, we're not close friends, and it's 2 hours of my work. Secondly, $40 for headshots is really cheap, and also a simple email back of: "oh, I can't afford that right now" would've been nice.

I'm going through the wedding pictures from Saturday very slowly. Even though I create presets that I apply for pictures shot in the same place/angle, during a wedding there's lots of movement and light changes. So I'm tweaking each photo. At 900 pictures, 5 mins average, we're looking at 75 hours of post processing. That's a bit ridiculous. I've fired up photoshop for a few things like removing a powerbox behind the bride. And removing manhole covers. Andy says I'm obsessing. It's true. I need to not do so much editting. It's okay right now since I don't have that much weddings, but I need to figure out how to edit less.

I'd guess that you do are just needlessly obsessing. When we got out wedding prints, our photographer sent us prints of all the photos so that we could pick the 50 shots that would go into the album. She said she did some basic work on the prints, but she didn't do any real editing until we picked the album pictures. We got the prints and were just like, "what else does she need to do?" The prints looked perfect to us. And honestly, I can't tell the difference between those ones and the ones in the album that she did the more time consuming editing to.

Hah. This is the problem with being an OCD geek, I just kinda go crazy on it.

I think I'll set like this weekend as the end time for editting, like I should be done by then for all the general edits.
