Question about proofs?
I am starting my business this year. I would like to know how others show the proofs to their clients. It seems that some people show them immediately after, but starting off I am worried that I will need to do some editing first before the clients look at them. I also see that some do online viewing, but are there free sites for that? I know there is one that doesn't charge you until you make a sale, so can you tell the client to view them there and just call you for the order? Oh, and one more question, do you keep your name on the photos after you sell them? Sorry for all the questions, I have so many I don't know where to start. If anyone has any good book suggestions let me know. I am haveing a hard time finding exactly what I want. Thanks in advance

Re: Question about proofs?
I am comfortable with my RAW files directly from the camera so I do no post to my proofs. I also do as much as I can to educate my clients to what my proofs are and what they should expect. My end photo quality speaks for itself and they know that is what they will get.
This is my setup that I use through Smugmug. http://www.captureyourselftoday.com/...lient-Entrance
Most proofs folders are password protected for the client.
