  1. Thinking about it I don't want to sit and post-process the photos - your absolutely right this is part of what I will pay for. I guess I just focused on the raw thing cos I'm used to chatting about that format with u/w photographers. More the issue is how many of the photos actually shot do I get. So say 200 photos got taken and a selection were post-processed and then the client ends up with 50 that they choose from the proofs. What about getting the rest of the unprocessed ones? It only takes copying over and they are the ones that didn't have time spent on them. I guess the argument there would be that a professional photographer wouldn't want to hand over 'all' as some may not have turned out well and so they wouldn't want 'bad' photos by them being seen.
  2. I can understand why they might not have handed over physical negatives, but these days they can copy the raw files. Also I see how they might not do it if they were paying a model for a shoot or doing landscapes or art, etc. However, I'm not sure I see why I can't have a copy of the files if I am paying for my image to be taken. I guess it is just something I never thought about before and it came as a bit of a surprise.
  3. I've been looking at getting a shoot for some family pictures and the issue of digital negatives from the shoot is bothering me. It seems that some photographers only want to give the client a selection of the photos taken in polished jpeg or tiff form on disc (although I don't really understand tiff) even though it will be shot in raw. This to me is the equivalent of old film photos and them not handing over the actual negatives. I can understand some of the reasoning behind this but I do feel that as a client paying for her image to be shot that I want the 'originals' as well. What is your opinion as both clients and photographers on this?
  4. They really are the cutest things under the sea. I'm off to Sydney for a month on 20th April so any tips on where to dive around there would be great.
  5. Wow they look gorgeous. I love the two geese on the water.
  6. Saw this elsewhere already - poor shark but I'm glad they managed to get the frisbee off from around its neck.
  7. How fantastic that she has such enthusiasm and some nice shots there.
  8. Sounds like a great idea to me - good luck with the venture!
  9. Simply stunning Nigel. Almost enough to entice me to go diving in the homeland.
  10. Didn't realise that this site belonged to a wetpixie. Great site I love it and it has been on my favourites bar for a while now.
  11. Ah I didn't know that - thanks for the heads up.
  12. Ha ha - yes you are right! I will probably be acquiring a nikon D80 soon anyway so i was just playing with this one. It is actaully my other halfs that was just in his mothers attic for ages so I will see what he wants to do with it.
