So it seems everyone is apologizing for being MIA, add another one to the list. I've been busy with family, funerals, planning my DD's 2nd birthday, and planning a week long business/family vaca trip to Miami. Haven't had much time to get out my camera other than just a few snaps here and there. Heck, I missed every single opportunity to take pictures at my DD's 2nd birthday. I think I got 4 or 5 of her eating cake
Any who, I've got my first stranger shoot coming up. I took photos for my sister and one of her workout buddies saw them and wants some pictures of her, her DH, and their 2 dogs. I'm seriously nervous and hope I don't make a fool of myself.
I don't feel like I'm at a level of having anyone pay me money and I REALLY just want the practice/experiance. But, I don't want her to expect printed photos and they be on my dime. I just don't know what is a 'fair' price to charge at this stage in the game (if at all). I asked her if she's expecting anything more than digital images on a CD, but I don't know the answer yet.
I know the decision is mine, but should I give her full res images on a CD or low res? Should I give her full printing rights to my photos? Should I give watermarked images? I just would love any advice as it pertains to the 'business' side of things. I don't want to put myself out there and then be known as the person that will take nice pictures for free and never get anywhere, ya know?
Also, since I'm not officialy PBing or starting a business, should I have them sign a model release? What if I do want to use their photos to promote myself (if any are even good enough!), would I need a release then?
Sorry for the 50 questions, I'm just lost on this kind of thing. This is a whole different world from just taking pictures of my cute daughter.
