So, shortly after posting my first Craigslist Ad (here
) I got a response -- my first hit. As I specified on the ad, I was all about negotiating the price in respect to what was wanted. Personally, I see photography as a very customized service, so I tried to keep rigid elements to a minimum (i.e. fixed prices, X outfits changes, Y locations, CD with Z images, 'this many' prints, etc, all which plague Craigslist, along with links to countless blogs).
The client was interested in some portraits. She wanted some studio portraits as well as some 'fun, urban, creative' outside shots. I invested in some dirt-cheap lights (see my thread about my tests with those here
) and discovered this 'studio' portion of the job challenging. However, once we went outside days later, I was more comfortable with that setting.
Anyway, I'll met with her later this week to show her my edits. I hope I've delivered what she was hoping for. I'm much more pleased with the outside shots than the studio shots. All shots were taken with the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4, 'cept for the last shot (that was with the EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6).
Even though the price has already been determined, I'm curious to see what you all think this job is worth
? (so I can benchmark from that with future jobs)
In addition, any suggestions for not only the images, but how I did 'business' would be warmly appreciated. Thank you all. Enjoy some of the 'favorites' below.
