With the 5x7 they resize the door. I have the 8x10 and I frequently fold over about 4 inches to get the door where I want. They shrink everything. The door will work ok for head and 3/4 shots but not for full body. It will be too small and make everyone look like giants.

Thanks!!

I made a post below with some of my senior photos from this year, but it looks like most of the senior action in the forum is in this thread. :) Here are a couple of my favs. Critique isn't necessary but if anyone has comments or questions I'll be happy to discuss the photos or the senior photography business.

PS: Please forgive the distracting logo. I had posted these pics on facebook and have to add the logo there to prevent printing. I'll try to keep a few "forum friendly files" without the obtrusive watermarking in the future.

I liked the photographs, especially 2 & 3. Did you get # 3 spot on, or had multiple exposures till you got it right?

Here are a few I took today for some senior reps. Let me know what you think.

Hey Pham, I am very interested in this backdrop system: http://www.silverlakep​hoto.com …tid=118956&cat=​250&page=1 (external link)


Here is a link to the full kit: http://www.silverlakep​hoto.com …tid=118957&cat=​330&page=1 (external link)

And here is a link to using colorsmacks on their support system; http://www.silverlakep​hoto.com …uctid=119100&ca​t=0&page=1 (external link)

I don't own it, but I hope to get one in the next year. Check out the video, it is very versatile.

Anyone using Silverlake products? I really like their Colorsmacks!

I purchased a few of their Colorsmacks, and unfortunately I wasn't impressed. They are not perfectly rectangular. It looks like when the seamstress attached the velcro on the fabric, it made those ends wavy. Not only does it not look professional, but it makes it a challenge to put them on the velcro bar without forming jammed up areas of fabric on the background. Also they are not true 5x7, they are more like 4'6x6'6. Not sure why they did this but those 6" makes me feel like they cheated out on me. If their prices were lower I'd buy them, but I'd rather spend my money on the Denny cloth materials. To me it's like night and day.

The velcro stand looks good in their videos. But from my own experience, having used both the Colorsmacks w/ a velcro bar and the Denny Freedom cloth. I find looping on the Denny backgrounds onto a pole is much quicker and easier.

^ Dave, that fist image in b/w is money. It has a nice classic feel to it.

Thanks! I think I did 2 shots of that photo, but both were pretty much on. The credit goes to the dancer as she made a perfect jump both times.

Muskydave22, the first one is nice, (I like all of them actually) just make sure you fix the left side before printing/sharing. :) *edited to clarify who I was talking to*

On another note - holy cow this is a long thread! It took me a few days to get through all of it, but I'm glad I did, there's a lot of great info in here! Seniors are my favorite thing to shoot, and the direction I want to take my business in until I'm doing them almost exclusively. Maybe I'll get the guts to post some of my work for critique :)

The concept of "seniors" at all and them having commemorative photos taken is a very American thing. I'm wondering how to convert people down here in Belize to this way of thinking, so this market can start to develop.

This is really a coming of age thing for american teenagers. you would probably do well for marketing to a Quinceañera Coming of Age Ceremony. Thats what i would do anyway.

That's got me thinking. A friend's daughter has just turned 15, and I'm wondering about offering her photos as a birthday present.

If you offer them, make sure you offer a CD as well. IMO, it's tacky to offer a gift like that and then still expect them to pay. ;)
