Need Advice - First "Big" Portrait Session for Family Friend

Today, 01:18 AM

Hi Guys, 


First, a little bit of background of myself. I am an amateur shooter that loves taking portraits and journalism photography. I've done informal gigs, such as small events and portraits sessions for high school proms. Most of the time my rate is really cheap because my clients consist of friends, family friends, and anyone similar. But this time around I am being asked by my best friend's mother to take portraits for her and her husband's 10 year anniversary. She knows many photographers but decides to choose me because I'm her son's best friend. She also said she is willing to pay. 


For myself, this would be considered my first "big" portrait session - a 10 year anniversary for my best friend's parents. Now I come to this forum with some advice on how to approach the event: 


How much should I charge for the session? Again, mind that she is the mother of my best friend, who also sees me as her own. 


My current setup is an X-E2 + 23 1.4, and that is it. It would probably be smart to add some more tools. It was just this year that I switched to Fuji from Nikon. What tools should I look into? I was considering the 10-24, 56, and 50-140. I was considering buying the 56, and just renting out the 10-24 and the 50-140. Any flash gear that I should consider as well? I was considering taking them to a wetland park area during golden hour, where waters and wheat rule the land. 


Thanks for looking,

Hong Kong wildlife

Yesterday, 11:38 PM

Posted by blue crow in Wildlife-Nature

Hi all, just sharing a few photos I've taken around where I live in the New Territories of Hong Kong.

I mostly use X-T1 & 55-200mm combo for this stuff, and occasionally I use an old dusty and beat up Tamron 90mm Macro (No.1below).

There's some fairly heavy cropping in some of these, but until the 100-400mm and the 120mm Macro and the teleconverter come out, that's where it's at for me.


Any and all comments are encouraged and appreciated. Thanks for looking  :)

Used 56mm for a shoot

Yesterday, 11:01 PM

First time shooting exclusively with X-T1 and 56mm f1.2. Wish I had strobes with me but this time it was ambient light only. Eye detect didn't work for most of the shots even when shooting face closeups. Not sure why. It did see the small square for a few shots. For half body, 3/4 shots where you need eye detect, it just wasn't there at all.


Here is one of the shots at the very beginning of the shoot. Wide open @f1.2.

Whaaaaat? Camera at a party?

Yesterday, 09:34 PM

I can't say I remember the last time I actually brought my camera to a non-paying gig.  When I am not working I rarely take pictures....until now.  It's not a chore to lug around my fuji gear!  I just clip it on my belt and it's there when I need it and safely tucked away when it's time to just chill.  Not something that happens when i show up with my DSLR gear.  Played some yard Yahtzee and the X-T1 was focusing great.  Inside I sat at the table for some board games with my silent shutter and got some real moments that would not have been possible otherwise.  Did some fireworks on the beach and she did great with the long exposures.  Here's a few from the day:

Nuther red sports car, 27mm/XPro1

Yesterday, 09:24 PM

I used to have a friend who drove a Lotus Elan, a long, long time ago. It was in the shop more than it was on the road. This Lotus is stunning in design. 27mm/X-Pro1.

Fujifilm Moving to a new MAP program on July 15

Yesterday, 06:35 PM

Effective July 15th, 2015, Fuji will have a new MAP policy for dealers.


This applies to USA authorized dealers; dealers in other regions may or may not have similar restrictions.


MAP stands for 'minimum advertised price' and it is a system that all manufacturers use. Dealers can SELL below this figure, but they cannot ADVERTISE below this figure.


However, they are further tightening the rules as follows:


Dealers will no longer be allowed to offer discount codes for online orders that results in prices that are below the minimum, and will also no longer be allowed to provide any written communication (including email) to a prospective buyer which offers to sell an item below MAP.


All sales below MAP will therefore have to be done via direct or telephone sale.
