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.

Hahah, it's like photoshop-lite for camera people.

I'm still interested in your sunflare tutorial!
I think for more hardcore stuff, like making the bride skinnier, you still need photoshop.
