I use studios and various locations all the time. As to who and where I book basically comes down to 3 main factors.

1. Look
2. Location
3. Price

Obviously without the right look to fulfil the clients brief then I'm not going to book, price and location may prohibit a client booking.

Other factors are weather or not there is lighting and other equipment there for my use and another extremely important thing is -

4. Parking

Generally myself, MUA, stylist, client with products etc. are all going to have lots of heavy kit and stuff, so onsite parking is essential.

Perhaps the most difficult problem creatives face is being too close to their work. That blinds you to objectivity. Then, when someone is harsh about your 'baby' it hurts. Sadly, though, often the harsh comment is what is needed.

Hmmmmm. Would you let your views be known to the shop? I would have certainly asked for more off than I managed to get. They generally fetch about £150/160 on Ebay. I got the battery grip (2 batteries) with it though, and 6 mths (I think) warranty. Excellent condition, almost like new, for £200. Not sure I would have bought it though with 55k on it.

Primarily a back up lens, this 85mm has produced good pictures with excellent sharpness and bokeh when used. Now replaced with a 135f2L for the longer reach required in our set up.

Its been with us around nine months from new and calibrated to two 6d's. A good example of a proportionately good value lens. Going rate second hand is around £190, bit having had many bargains here myself, happily offering for £170 plus special delivery postage. Payment by bank transfer.

May consider an intriguing swap if you have anything photographic you're not making use of?

; font-family: Tahoma, Arial, Verdana; font-size: 14px; font-style: italic;">You are of course, quite right. Everyone can still learn new techniques and tricks from others. Perhaps you could arrange a social meet up in your area for like minded people and see what develops? Though this site is not as busy as it use to be, draw your own conclusions as to why,



Might it be because when people make perfectly reasonable posts,  that certain memebers here jump on them and try to belittle the OP?  Its exactly why I, and several people I've spoken to, rarely post anything on this site.

In my humble opinion what Jane is suggesting is perfectly reasonable and an excellent way of freshening up a portfolio.  There was simply no justification for trying to cast it in any sort of dubious light.

Maybe I'm being a bit dense here (!),  but your initial post comes across as a poor attempt to grab a bit of attention and/or outrage that someone dare do something without your permission.  However one looks at your posts in this thread,  they feel very negative and totally unreasonable.

As anyone with any sense and experience will know,  its quite easy to get stuck in a bit of a rut.  Having the intelligence and courage to do something about that,  is a good thing.  Its what intelligent adults do.  
As Jane has been around for some time,  I'm sure she is well aware of the likelihood of her thread being hi-jacked.  I can only see positives in the fact that she made the post anyway.
Doing something positive is infinately better than wallowing in negativity and sniping at anyone who has a positive attitude.

Good luck to you Jane,  I hope there are plenty of local people who will join you and benefit from a great suggestion.

Big Tobacco was very late to the party, and the vast majority of suppliers are completely independent of BT and BP (big Pharma). BT has been buying up small 'cigalike' companies in an effort to jump on the bandwagon. However, none of the 2nd and 3rd generation devices are produced by BT or BP - and those are by far the most effective in keeping smokers off cigarettes. These are the ones that look nothing like a cigarette and more like a sonic screwdriver. The power can be varied and the amount of nicotine in the liquid is also completely variable, from zero to a typical maximum of 36mg/ml.

The so called 'cigalikes' produced by BT or companies such as eLite are not very good and turn out to be nearly as expensive as smoking. Since nicotine when separated from a cigarette has few contra indications, there seems to be no good (or proven) reason why PVs (personal vapourisers) should not be used long term and many vapers do not feel that there is any need for a 'cure'. However, it is true that some of the advertising is wrongly targeted - bear in mind though that by law PVs are not allowed to make any claims about being a quit aid.

It certainly isn't 'tosh' about using them to give up smoking - for many committed smokers (now ex smokers) they are by far the most effective way of doing so on a long term basis. At my local the other night there was a 50:50 split between smokers and vapers and there's an estimated 2.6M vapers now; that's risen from 2.1M in the last year.

You're quite right about BT and BP having formidable lobbying and advertising power and of course governments are losing a lot of tax revenue too. A further significant factor is the EU's TPD Article 20 (Tobacco Products Directive), due to become law next May. This will ban all current 2nd and 3rd generation devices leaving the market open for BT and their ineffective cigalikes. The TPD is clearly the result of a corrupted, unelected few, with decisions made behind closed doors and funded by tobacco and pharma. It's a big and complex subject and the big money has effectively finished vaping in Spain before it really started; California too has some ludicrous and completely unfounded propaganda - they've spent their money from the 'Master Tobacco Settlement' already and are now in a real hole as tobacco revenues drop. Their answer, at the expense of public health, is to try and maintain smoking tax revenues.

Following on from the last one, when we had about 20 people attending, the next Exeter Social is on Wednesday 2nd. September. It is held in George's Meeting Hall, a huge Wetherspoons pub, in South Street, Exeter. Bottom end of South Street, on the left. Start between 19.00 and 19.30. EVERY PS member is welcome.

Bring business cards, folio, new kit you want everyone to maul (!) and a sense of humour. The idea is to talk about model photography, meet each other and network.


Come and go as you please although some of us hang about until we get chucked out!

Parking is limited on street but there is a car park at the end of the road or the Guildhall car park and the Mary Arches Street car parks are within walking distance.  Just about walkable from the bus station or from either Exeter St. David's or Exeter Central railway stations.
Beer is cheap and they do good, affordable food as well.


If you are a bit shy or get lost my mobile number is  REMOVED BY ADMIN. Call me and I will help. Happy to meet people at the door etc.

Hence why I said on page 1 that Magnum was deeply divided over his appointment.  I personally don't agree with with his appointment either, especially when you see other names listed.

Best guess right now is that you'd do well in fashion type shots based on your look. Catwalk convention says you're not tall enough for the designers to use at the top end, but nonetheless, would probably look great in clothes.

As it stands, you'll need a wider ranging portfolio and one which shows what you look like more clearly than your current set. These aren't dreadful, but the watermark is a bit of a joke and actually obscures your face in some shots.

Id suggest some carefully TF shoots with photographers who can give good direction and don't have weird watermark habits. Ian t is one such photographer with a great track record in adult and lingerie. You'll need others to show range and develop your posing and expressive skills.

Older lenses often has it. Some of the more expensive and highly rated lenses from Zeiss has it wide open. Most recent and cheaper lenses has less issue with purple fringe.
My Canon 135L f2 which delivers the Zeiss like microntrast pop also exhibit CA at wider aperture while the more recent 100mm f2.8L Macro IS handles CA well while very sharp don't have that 3D pop appearance. Likewise Sigma Art don't have the microcontrast pop of the Zeiss but handles CA extremely well.
Could this be a direct trade off?

This site doesn't mind you using the name purpleport. If anything it's purpleport that minds you using the name pursetorm or model maxim. As for your portfolio and your comments.... Bluntly speaking... who cares what it says! We dont need to know about photoaid or anything else. You were presumably wanting to pay the models in question and I'm pretty sure that most models don't even read your portfolio notes. An awful lot won't even look at your images! All they're interested in is to see the pictures of your £50 notes! So my advice is to delete most of your notes.

As for the quality of your images.... again, who cares if you are paying them!

Personally i wouldn't dive in and buy a 50mm f1.8 (plastic fantastic). While it does offer a wide open aperture of 1.8 good for those soft blurred back grounds etc and as a prime it will be sharper than the kit lens. At its 1.8 the depth of field will be very shallow so unless your point of focus is spot on you will likely end up with more l out of focus images. Canons 1.2 50mm is huge in quality, price , size and weight approx 1200 quid id guess where the nifty fifty 1.8 is 60 to 70 band new.... Thats great value for money without a doubt. Take into account on your camera any 50mm will give the same field of view as an 80mm lens effectively so you will need to be that bit further away from the subject. Set your kit lens to 50mm then challenge yourself to take pictures but you can only change shutter speed and iso see how you get on. If you find it good then maybe the little 50 would be worth a punt



The problem with the 'kit' lens is that it's aperture values are so high for its focal length that it is actually quite difficult to see the effect aperture has on taking photos, especially with a crop sensor (remember it's at f5.6 at the long end, that's stopped down by 3.5 stops compared to the 50mm at a similar focal length).  At the very least the 50mm will make it plainly obvious what's happening when the aperture is changed, which I would say is a good thing for a beginner, even if precise focussing is a problem (a 50mm f1.8 on a crop body isn't too bad, or at least I don't recall having problems when I used to regularly use this combination).

I'd say having both lenses (18-55 and 50mm) would give the best combination of flexibility for the money and allow anyone using it to learn most aspects of photography.
