me working in a pri sch..
lately got some teachers started asking me to take class photo for them.. tried taking in hall n some outdoors with pretty good results.. now thinking of doing it as a sideline.
here's my current thought of the whole process..
eqpt - Nikon F80, AFS 24-85, Sigma EF500 flash, 055 tripod.
camera set on tripod with flash n cable release.
setting at f11, 3D matrix metering mode, direct flash on TTL with omni bounce, red eye reduction..
for a class of 40 kids, line them up according to height..
1st 10 tall kids sit in front, followed by next 10 kneeling, next 10 standing on grd, n last 10 (which r the shortest) standing on bench.
after the shoot (abt 3 shoots for each class), send them off in rows to write down names in order..
after whole thing, develop the film into 4R to see results.. choose the best for each class then scan the neg at 2400dpi. add the names in using Photoshop. burn to CD then send for printing..
wld printing 6R or 8R frm digital media more exp than frm neg??
can anyone give me more advices?? thanks
