    To be honest, I was thinking the way the chap was thinking before I ventured into photography.

    But since going into photography I dun think that way anymore.

    As for my colleague, I'll take u guys suggestions.

    Ah... The last event I covered, wasn't that bad. Ppl at least showed some form of appreciation which wasn't that bad. Of cos, earned some intangible benefits in return.

    That chap juz asked me straightaway for the full set of photos just like dat.

    I'm definitely not giving him the benefit of doubt that the photos are for any follow-up events of any kind.

    I guess some clients have no concept on time and how priceless that is.

    jsbn guess u of all should know where I stand on such issues. If the client gives me an overall job then I won't mind HELPING him cover the event BUT I always tell them that I am nowhere near the pros so they gotta be prepared that my pics are my interpretation of the event. Most times my clients are quite ok in that they know it's just a snap-happy fest for me.

    However, if you're only exclusively gonna be shooting for them, as in you're asked to only do the shoot, then I say give them lowest quality WITH watermarks.

    so does he go to the hawker centre and tell the uncle "you already have wok and equipment. why you sell me $3 for the char kway teow? come on lah.. i just pay for the gas and ingredients ok? shouldn't be more than 50cents. Here you go! Thanks!"

    Next time intro him to me, I will shoot for him for free with my Fujifilm 4900Z and backup Canon A200 and 2nd backup Fuji F11.

    Or better still I lend him my 4900 and A200 and he can shoot to his heart's content.

    BTW, 600X400 (72dpi) is acceptable for 4R prints. Tried with pics from my 4900Z.. (my friend actually 'stole' it from my gallery and printed it cos she liked it so much..)

    geylang

    that will incur transport charges.. just operate from home. Since the room is under-utilised during the day anyway. Can charge for room rental also.

    Ok, that's it. I'm really cursing in my heart.
    Any recommended screen resolutions for viewing only?
    I'm wondering if 640x480 on 72dpi is good enuff or shld I make 320x240 so that its impossible to print?
    just reply no, your HDD crashed and all the photos were lost.

    or your CF card corrupted etc etc.

    quite simple really.

    I highly recommend 1 pixel X 1 Pixel in 1 dpi.

    Hi jsbn,

    1) It all depends on whether you know the person who ask you those questions.
    2) What if this person is such a beauty to you and has a sweet voice when asking - she's not your friend or girl friend - would you condier giving her some of your shots for whatever the purpose she intend to use them?

    As good photographers, we don't have to be rude. Be polite and say:"I charge for the photos..." and see what is the respond before deciding whether to give and at what resolution, etc. Its either a deal or no deal - no need to show middle finger or whatever

    "sure, I'll bring it on cd next week"

    Only get worried if they want free prints.
