    Spot metering also doesn't work on a dark subject because the camera meter will overexpose to bring the dark subject up to a midtone. If you are working in a studio setting with controlled lighting then the exposure should not change (significantly) with the subject. This is the ideal situation for those of you taking product shots for eBay. If the lighting is changing (e.g. ambient through a window, flash with TTL metering) then it gets more tricky.

    Our correspondence below. I ended up throwing her $15 for drycleaning instead of telling her to go to hell because that would have been ungentlemanly, and I am nothing if not a gentleman.

    Did you receive my message from yesterday? I'd like to get this resolved quickly; nothing like this has happened before to me as a seller. If you don't want the suit, I'd like to address the issues and offer it to another bidder.

    mysegal11: What the hell is the UPSO?

    Me: mysegal11: Me: mysegal11: I hate people

    Me:


    How should I have handled this differently?

    Sometimes I feel like not responding to members If I don't like their usernames. Recently I've had messages from a "getsomehead" and a "nutsinyourmouth". Like, this is a nice fucking piece of clothing. I don't want some douchebag wearing it. Unless it's Robert Graham, then I literally don't give a shit who you are.

    5000k lights and 6500k lights practically the same? I really want to step up my photo game, does someone have a written guide already. Might drop some money on a proper camera and mannequin, I feel like I always ask this question

    Huh. I just had my highest ever skeet at $96 two weeks ago. Two ending Sunday that I'm hopeful for.

    Camera forums will have awesome guides in general. Reading a bunch I was able to pick little parts that applied to my setup.
