[img]http://i.imgur.com/0ospw.png[/img] not creepy at all
that client (graphic design but this happens as photographers just as much) my girlfriend put out an ad for doing graphic design, making logos and such. She got in an inquiry and she talked with him about her rates and how much work she'd have to put in. at a base of ~$16 hourly (usually a minimum for any graphic design work), she estimated 4 or 5 hours of work based on how much the guy wants and providing leighway for making changes after giving the first suggested drafts of logos, coming out to roughly $60-80 for two solid concepts for the guy's logo with his direct input on changes. [quote]Thanks [sp]blank[/sp] I'll get back to you in the near future if I decide to use your services. BTW, your logo design rate is higher than what I thought it might be. Just, FYI, here's what I have found on the Internet so far in terms of what professional logo design websites are willing do to design work for - [url]http://www.createlogodesign.com/order3.htm[/url] ($29 upfront, $70 to proceed further after initial designs) - 4 designs [url]http://www.fastfreelogo.com/?gclid=CNO1lN_zjK4CFQe8KgodsylTgQ[/url] $38 - 2 designs, pay only if you like the design [url]http://promo.logodesigncopyright.com/[/url] $58 - unlimited designs [url]http://logodesignguarantee.com/?gclid=CLv3kJr0jK4CFS6FQAodOXOGew[/url] $49 - 6 designs [url]http://www.logoinn.com/?gclid=COKzrZv0jK4CFaYAQAod5BjYdQ[/url] $68 - 3 designs Regards, [sp]blank[/sp].[/quote] These are all those kind of sketchy sites that outsource their work and just recycle vectors out of their library (usually rips of existing logos), and slap them on the client's name with a few tweaks. This is genuinely insulting, I hate when people pull that shit
My reply to stuff like that is "You get what you pay for" and or "quality over quantity". Still, what a bitch.

I only keep my sister's ex on facebook for the future possibility of dumping him on my old breakdancer client should he ask for more photo work [img]http://i54.tinypic.com/213kz1w.png[/img] I haven't seen real photos from him in a good while, it's all been wonky instagrams

[img]http://puu.sh/h3el[/img] I forgot what model, as I can't find the photo, but she took her 'portfolio' with some $400 DSLR . :v:
Does she actually call it a portfolio? Bad photos aren't that funny without pretension.
Unless it's shunned in professional photography to use a timer I'm not sure what to this of her portfolio. Hi, I'm credsniper, new to photography, and bad joke teller.
Her "portfolio" (yes she named the album that) was this one: [img]http://puu.sh/h3dw[/img]
Two of those sky pictures are alright, and the one with the thin flowers are decent. If I'm wrong tell me why.
[QUOTE=credesniper;34719957]Two of those sky pictures are alright, and the one with the thin flowers are decent. [b]If I'm wrong tell me why.[/b][/QUOTE] I dunno, it's your opinion. Are you wrong?
[QUOTE=credesniper;34719957]Two of those sky pictures are alright, and the one with the thin flowers are decent. If I'm wrong tell me why.[/QUOTE] Half of them are out of focus. I can see one or two alright ones there.
[img]http://img600.imageshack.us/img600/4872/ss20120216122551.png[/img] this is actually rather nice, but the sheer spam of flowers, pcitures of the camera sitting there, a blurry closeup of their eye, and more pictures of the sky when it gets kinda orange in the distance are too much to ignore, it makes it seem more like a situationally lucky random shot than anything more.

You guys may remember the Encomienda Photography guy. Well, I wanted to be honest with him and tell him that a majority of his photos aren't good with the giant watermark on his photos that are more than likely from Paint. He replied to me "I prefer having a large watermark for copyright purposes". I replied saying that honestly no one will steal his photos and make money off of it. His reply again? "Just in case" Like anyone will steal this photo: [IMG]http://sphotos.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/417199_291397477582836_183420841713834_731944_1129019969_n.jpg[/IMG] He also has two bodies: his main body being a D5100 and his "backup" being a D3100. A friend of mine who goes to the same school as him told me that he has two bodies because he's too "lazy" to switch lenses. Which is... whatever I guess. I don't know, I just get so annoyed by these people. I know I shouldn't really hate other's photography work, but come on.. I honestly believe he thinks he's really good or something because he claims that his photos were featured on KUSI news (San Diego local news) /endrage [IMG]http://img14.imageshack.us/img14/7959/capturevnw.jpg[/IMG]
Repost from the other thread: You got to be fucking kidding me right? People with their mommy's kit lens DSLR and Video camera think they can start a photography business? [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/Loqxi.png[/IMG] Oh, here's the link to the video. [URL]http://vimeo.com/37220097[/URL] I spot some nice pictures, but nothing special or out of the ordinary, and this person has the audacity to say "Impress me, then maybe you can intern?" EDIT: Yup, my assumption was right, typical DSLR with kit lens. ( No offense to those who carry one ) [IMG]https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/404683_379695938713843_100000203194127_1758110_680633242_n.jpg[/IMG]

It's a shame that the kit lens is easily seen and judged as noob photographer gear. The both Nikon and Canon's 18-55 are decent in quality and far surpass some older lens designs.

Also, the Nikons 18-55 IMO is much better than the last revision 18-55 ( not the newest one )

I think it's the gear boasting.
Well looking through his gallery it seems that he has a lot of expensive equipment and does nothing more than taking macro shots around his house. [url]http://carbanim.deviantart.com/gallery/?offset=0[/url]
a case of daddy's equipment and boasting, yeah. I do have to give him credit for keeping up with a 365 project thus far, and he's got a decent amount of stuff that's good, he's just goofy about it
I know of 'That Girl' in my photography class, she shows up to class with her gear and a portfolio, which consisted of a variety of long exposure highway shots, rings, flowers, a girl posing (the girl didn't even shave her armpits, like 12 o' clock shadow there) and all of these pictures with a horrendous 'JB POHTOGRAPHSYF' ~pro~ watermark. I died on the inside because she really thinks she's all that. We had a group project on Lomo, all the pictures that she took, she took them with out moving from the standing position, she didn't go low or move for an angle, she just stood. What made it worse was the fact that she was bragging already about how good her pictures are gonna come out. Ded, ded, ded.
