I'm not trying to demean anyone's work, I would just love to see less snapping and more serious work, not some over-hyped HDR or wide-open macro of some uninteresting mediocrity.



Been busy, mostly partying and rehabbing my leg (finally cast-free!) -- probably won't have a lot of serious time to shoot until after the new year, as next week begins the 15-hour work days (plus my 3hr round trip commute). I have 4 rolls to drop off sometime this week, but I've been lazy. Maybe I'll bring my 50D tomorrow and see if I can't get something through.

Been real thin on inspiration, which is why I asked to see some more good stuff.

I'm definitely guilty of not posting much. redface.gif My problem isn't a lack of time to shoot, but more of a bipolar attitude about my shots. I'll come back for an outing, excited about the shots I had, even when viewing them on my monitor. However, after a few days when (if) I get around to PP'ing them, then I suddenly hate all my shots. frown.gif So I have literally a couple hundred unprocessed RAW images going back a few months. I think with Fall Break starting here at work soon, that I may finally get around to processing them.

+1. Let him know you're willing to eat the fees. If he wants $450, you need to send him $463.75.

Or just multiply the value by 1.03% in any calculator tongue.gif

@GoneTomorrow: I've a bit of a random question for you. Since you teach at a school, have you ever tried to start a photography class or organization? Random curious question.

Usually when it's a situation like that I offer to pay the fees. I only paid for something once using a gift, and I ended up regretting it.

Well, it's a tough one because I'm sure there will be plenty of takers who are willing to pay as a gift without reservation, so it's your call. If you refuse, he might go to the next taker. I think you mentioned that his credentials were good, so perhaps it would be ok to do so in this instance.

And I agree with the others that offering to pay the fees might be a good option, as he wouldn't have to pay fees and you would still have your buyer's protection, so both would win (except that you would have to pay a small amount extra).

@GoneTomorrow: I've a bit of a random question for you. Since you teach at a school, have you ever tried to start a photography class or organization? Random curious question.

Well, there is a photography class in the art department, and it's decent from what I've gleaned. They do both film and digital, though I have my doubts about how much technical knowledge is taught.

I help shoot some of the school events, with students shooting along side me, so that's my outlet for teaching photography (honestly I'm way too loaded down to take on another class, though I would love to). Most of the journalism students are clueless and don't get much in the way of instruction for their cameras; they all use our school's Canon T3's, XT's, and Nikon D40's, all with kit lenses. They use overhand grips to hold the lens barrel while shooting and shoot green square only. Like I said, not much in the way of technical instruction here, but decent gear and opportunities for the students at least.

Luckily our newspaper peeps (that aren't me) all have pretty decent gear. T2i, 17-55 IS all round (bought with own money).
