ebayologist , yo homie . how much you charge for a lil photoshoot ?
Since I don't really do commercial photography or every really plan to. My rate for essentially what amounts to is highly negotiable. At this point I really only involve myself as collaborator from an art aspect (graphic design, web design, photography, brand identity, etc.) with things I feel motivated to part of or I feel have weigh or with a little direction could go places. Like shortypop, it's #%!+$## screen name yet when the .com had absolutely no content I was averaging 300+ unique hits a day, now I realize grand scheme thats not a huge amount but makes me realize how viable turning a screen name of 20 year old girl from Virginia into a brand identity really is...
The shortypop thing "Shortypop in Monochrome" is something we (Me & Tisha) shot (among other things I just shot) with a Yashica Electro GS 35mm that I gave to her while she was here in Chicago but as essentially creative director and designer of Shortypop (©2008 ) I have a financial tie-in to the "brand" (note the store they'll be product in it shortly) so there was no charge for that or any of the other shoots. But I'm in talks with a handful of other people on Niketalk about various shoots that may or may not happen as well as webdesign because if you notice Shortypop.com is both flash and looks pretty slick...
So right now I have no set rate for anything it's all completely dependent on A: who you are (i.e. do I know you personally ex: SP is the homegirl, so it's love) B: what you want and how much work it entails and C: what's in it for me. If it's something easy and has huge potential to blow up into something that gets my name out there, $*@$ I'll do it @ cost... but if it's wack you could offer me $1,000 an hour I want nothing to do with...
So i just received one of the dopest gifts in a long time. One of my dad's homies gave me his:
Telephoto 200 mm lens
Dope leather bag to hold it alll in
all for free. I give major props to this guy for not even knowing who I am and still trusting me enough to give me all of this stuff.
Mos Def I wll put this to use

yo ii2cky, might i ask what exactly you did to get those results in your last pics?
1: Switch your camera to Shutter Priority mode by turning the mode dial to 'S' or on Canon models, 'Tv'.
2: Choose a slower shutter speed which will blur the action. 1/60 is a good starting point.
3: Follow the subject through the viewfinder as you take the picture. Make sure you keep moving the camera as you press the button.
4: If the background isn't sufficiently blurred, choose a slower shutter, such as 1/30 or 1/15. If the action is too blurred, choose a faster shutter like 1/125.
Don't know if that's what ii2cky did, but it should give similar results. www.dslrtips.com
^big thanks Santi.. but how does this all work focus-wise? i've been wondering about that, like how to focus while taking the shot
When I tried panning, I just kept half pressing the shutter button so I knew I was focused, when i had the subject where I wanted, then pressed the shutter button full to take the pic and kept following until the camera had finished taking the shot.
