I just did my first paid job. The gentleman that I did the job for is an international entertainer, a bubbleologist. This was a commercial job, not a "portrait" shoot by any means. The focus/star was the bubbles and his performance, not him specifically.
My biggest question is....how long would you expect 650 photos to take to post process for proofs. It took me an avg. of 2 min. per photo to open, enlarge, brighten (to see good bubble definition) and sharpen. Also, batch resizing and uploading to the web for viewing. Is this unreasonable?
I understand that many who do studio work such as portrait or glamour may not have this kind, if any, post processing necessary prior to sharing the proofs with the client. Working with bubbles was definitely a challenge with lighting (to make the bubble really stand out) and of course bubbles popping, not properly forming or being positioned correctly, etc.
Really looking for thoughts on post processing and proofs. While not one of the most difficult to shoot, here is one of the images I made on Monday of his new protege, Harry:
