Getting Paid From Doing Free Photo Work

Getting Paid From Doing Free Photo Work

Working for free can be a little controversial and I’m sure there are many creatives out there that completely disagree with it. There are plenty of reasons as to why someone shouldn’t work for free but the debate continues. I, on the other hand, would consider working for free depending on a number of factors. Sometimes making money isn’t the objective for me and working for free can be very fulfilling. For instance, offering free work for a charity is something I’ve done regularly and felt very good about. On other occasions, however, I have worked for free as part of a strategy. This is a more risky method because it doesn’t always pay off, but, when it does, it can pay off really well.

Sharpening in Lightroom: Make the Most Out of the Detail Panel

Adobe Lightroom was a pretty slick piece of software to begin with, but over the past several updates it has become an incredibly powerful tool for photographers. Of all the different controls and tools available within the software, the Detail panel has become one of my favorites. If you use Adobe Camera Raw or Adobe Photoshop, you can find the same set of controls that we’re talking about today which of course is within Lightroom. Adobe has been streamlining their systems for a long enough time now that handling raw files, although from a cataloging perspective is quite different, is almost identical between Lightroom, Camera Raw, and Photoshop.

Five Tips to Speed Up Your Editing Workflow

Every video project is different. You can have a client looking over your shoulder at every instance, or you can have a client not giving you any direction of what they want, which leads to multiple re-edits to produce a video they like and need. This means that where you can save time, you should. And one of the areas you can cut down is to know your NLE (non-linear editing system) and optimize it to suit you and the project you are busy with. In this video, Pond5 shows how you can streamline your editing and speed up your workflow.
