I don't know why... most people here carrying 2 mobiles everyday, normally 1 iphone 4/5 and 1 note... almost all (so call) stylist people is doing that. And apple sure understand how they think... (so different)... thats why apple provided a pair of iphones that fit their habit ;) bye bye samsung. Steve sure feel sad... because iphone NOTE finally launched, but who will care him any more. :( Due to the delay of launching Iphone 66+ in China, this may lead to more crimes in Hong Kong & Macau... let say iphone 66+ robbery. ...

Test Drive Jinbei DC600 II Battery Powered Flash System

Many people ask me about the DC vs HD... Jinbei DC600 II seems more stable than the old DC600, the remote power control trigger is like a god send ;) Best for low budget clients that make the photographer who work solo. DC vs DCII The 1.0 scale now really 1 stop in all power level(DC600 don't act the same). DC vs HD 1/10 power control in DC II vs and 1/3 stop increment in HD. Lighter flash head that mean... can use lighter light stand. Phottix Ares work with DC II but not work with HD. Sure HD will have its' advantage for different applications. I sure will buy one soon, although I already got 3 set old DC ;)

reBlog: Reasons Why Professional Photographers Cannot Work for Free

Dear potential photo buyer, If you have been directed to this page, it is likely that you have requested the use of an image or images for free or minimal compensation. As professional photographers, we receive requests for free images on a regular basis. In a perfect world, each of us would love to be able to respond in a positive manner and assist, especially with projects or efforts related to areas such as education, social issues, and conservation of natural resources. It is fair to say that in many cases, we wish we had the time and resources to do more to assist than just send photographs. Unfortunately, such are the practicalities of life that we are often unable to respond, or that when we do, our replies are brief and do not convey an adequate sense of the reasons underlying our response. Circumstances vary for each situation, but we have found that there are a number of recurring themes, which we have set out below with the objective of communicating more clearly with you, and hopefully avoiding misunderstandings or unintentionally engendering ill will. Please take the following points in the constructive manner in which they are intended. We certainly hope that after you have had a chance to read this, we will be able to talk again and establish a mutually beneficial working relationship. Photographs Are Our Livelihood Creating compelling images is the way we make our living. If we give away our images for free, or spend too much time responding to requests for free images, we cannot make a living. We Do Support Worthy Causes With Images Most of us do contribute photographs, sometimes more, to support certain causes. In many cases, we may have participated directly in projects that we support with images, or we may have a pre-existing personal relationship with key people involved with the efforts concerned. In other words, each of us can and does provide images without compensation on a selective basis. We Have Time Constraints Making a leap from such selective support to responding positively to every request we get for free photographs, however, is impractical, if for no other reason than the substantial amount of time required to respond to requests, exchange correspondence, prepare and send files, and then follow-up to find out how our images were used and what objectives, if any, were achieved. It takes a lot of time to respond to requests, and time is always in short supply. Pleas of “We Have No Money” Are Often Difficult to Fathom The primary rationale provided in nearly all requests for free photographs is budgetary constraint, meaning that the requestor pleads a lack of funds. Such requests frequently originate from organisations with a lot of cash on hand, whether they be publicly listed companies, government or quasi-government agencies, or even NGOs. Often, it is a simple matter of taking a look at a public filing or other similar disclosure document to see that the entity concerned has access to significant funding, certainly more than enough to pay photographers a reasonable fee should they choose to do so. To make matters worse, it is apparent that all too often, of all the parties involved in a project or particular effort, photographers are the only ones being asked to work for free. Everyone else gets paid. Given considerations like this, you can perhaps understand why we frequently feel slighted when we are told that: “We have no money.” Such claims can come across as a cynical ploy intended to take advantage of gullible individuals. We Have Real Budget Constraints With some exceptions, photography is not a highly remunerative profession. We have chosen this path in large part due to the passion we have for visual communication, visual art, and the subject matters in which we specialise. The substantial increase in photographs available via the internet in recent years, coupled with reduced budgets of many photo buyers, means that our already meager incomes have come under additional strain. Moreover, being a professional photographer involves significant monetary investment. Our profession is by nature equipment-intensive. We need to buy cameras, lenses, computers, software, storage devices, and more on a regular basis. Things break and need to be repaired. We need back-ups of all our data, as one ill-placed cup of coffee could literally erase years of work. For all of us, investment in essential hardware and software entails thousands of dollars a year, as we need to stay current with new technology and best practices. In addition, travel is a big part of many of our businesses. We must spend a lot of money on transportation, lodging and other travel-related costs. And of course, perhaps most importantly, there is a substantial sum associated with the time and experience we have invested to become proficient at what we do, as well as the personal risks we often take. Taking snapshots may only involve pressing the camera shutter release, but creating images requires skill, experience and judgement. So the bottom line is that although we certainly understand and can sympathise with budget constraints, from a practical point of view, we simply cannot afford to subsidise everyone who asks. Getting “Credit” Doesn’t Mean Much Part and parcel with requests for free images premised on budgetary constraints is often the promise of providing “credit” and “exposure”, in the form or a watermark, link, or perhaps even a specific mention, as a form of compensation in lieu of commercial remuneration. There are two major problems with this. First, getting credit isn’t compensation. We did, after all, create the images concerned, so credit is automatic. It is not something that we hope a third party will be kind enough to grant us. Second, credit doesn’t pay bills. As we hopefully made clear above, we work hard to make the money required to reinvest in our photographic equipment and to cover related business expenses. On top of that, we need to make enough to pay for basic necessities like food, housing, transportation, etc. In short, receiving credit for an image we created is a given, not compensation, and credit is not a substitute for payment. “You Are The Only Photographer Being Unreasonable” When we do have time to engage in correspondence with people and entities who request free photos, the dialogue sometimes degenerates into an agitated statement directed toward us, asserting in essence that all other photographers the person or entity has contacted are more than delighted to provide photos for free, and that somehow, we are “the only photographer being unreasonable”. We know that is not true. We also know that no reasonable and competent photographer would agree to unreasonable conditions. We do allow for the fact that some inexperienced photographers or people who happen to own cameras may indeed agree to work for free, but as the folk wisdom goes: “You get what you pay for.” Please Follow-Up One other experience we have in common is that when we do provide photographs for free, we often do not receive updates, feedback or any other form of follow-up letting us know how the event or project unfolded, what goals (if any) were achieved, and what good (if any) our photos did. All too often, we don’t even get responses to emails we send to follow-up, until, of course, the next time that someone wants free photographs. In instances where we do agree to work for free, please have the courtesy to follow-up and let us know how things went. A little consideration will go a long way in making us feel more inclined to take time to provide additional images in the future. Wrap Up We hope that the above points help elucidate why the relevant photographer listed below has sent you to this link. All of us are dedicated professionals, and we would be happy to work with you to move forward in a mutually beneficial manner. Original Article

Asked: Fashion Photography Color Repooduction

Q: I am in Shenzhen use Elinchrom studio flash, Canon 5DII and shoot with AWB in my studio, how come I cannot get the color right out of my camera, my shots lead me to days of post production. ... (long story) A: Since you don't use hand held light meter, you cannot really nail down a neutral exposure. You don't using any color managed digital capture, you actually noway to make the colors neutral. You don't standardize your post production work flow. Sometime Canon's software and sometime Lightroom. (what?) You are not a professional photographer, although you have shoot fashion for living for couple years. You should buy a light meter, color checker passport and learn from begin. PS: I create some files for him(as the one show), and let him understand the importance of color checkers etc. ...

Another Convention Photographer Just Born ;)

Link You must read all his questions, and answers by others. This really make me laugh, anyway I don't know what client do paid him USD150 per hour for a guy who is too new for such job. Maybe professional photographer should quit, since client believe everyone with a dslr is the same. Kinda sad.

Hand-help Light Meter Calibration At Zhuhai Studio

Result from sekonic DTS software and target. Tonight is a long working night, I do help another fellow photographer HaiKen to calibrate his brand new Sekonic 758D, and teach him how to nail exposure with light meter instead of try and error with lcd histogram.

reBlog: A Strobist Photographer is not a Good Photographer until they use a Light Meter

I am 100% agree that. Just convince another student photographer to buy an Sekonic 758DR, since he like flash portrait photography a lot. He was being teached by Zhuhai "so so" lead photographer that who don't have the money to buy a light meter, and people also tell him a light meter is rubbish and make him believe handheld light meter is just for show off. A Strobist Photographer is not a Good Photographer until they use a Light Meter.
