this photo is going to be used for advertising in his restaurant. I already made a few for his desserts and he said he noticed an immediate increase (more that triple) of dessert sales. the images i make are displayed on a 10" digital photo frame which is displayed on the counter where you place your order.
but i just need to work out a few kinks with my work flow, and figure out everything i need to start my own company including a name (anyone have any suggestions?
. i think this is a great opportunity for photographers like us who are good with a camera/computer. it may not pay a whole lot (37 USD an hour... sounds good but its hard to get very many hours) i get to set my own schedule and i don't have anyone bossing me around like i do at my full time job which i plan to quit when i start my fall semester of college. and its rather expensive to get started in...
Camera + lens and other camera related gear = 2000 usd
2 mono lights + soft box/umbrella and etc. = 900 usd
macbook pro + adobe CS4 Master collection = 4000 usd
TOTAL: 6900 USD!
plus countless hours of reading up on photography, browsing on the forum, and practice practice practice! (i only pay student price on cs4 master collection though.... some 500 USD)
I've been also trying adobe after effects out for a while and i made my first movie... here is the link:
