Sorry, another 'How much should I charge' but this is a little more specific.

That's what I figured you used. What's wrong with shutter button focus? ??? :D

Issues with focus/recompose (esp with cameras like the 5d2.)

Being able to adjust shutter speed while focusing is really beneficial to me.

Back button seems to be better for tracking a subject.

You won't accidently fire off a shot or two when trying to focus.

If an object moves into your frame, you can let off the focus and still get it to stay in focus, but with shutter button, you would still have to press the shutter.

Really. At least in my particular circumstances re: overhead and expenses.

I wouldn't necessarily describe food photography as being 'difficult' but like most forms of photography it all depends where your comfort level is. Doing it well is delivering precisely what the client is looking for, with lots of pre-production and planning, working from very tight layouts(most of my work is packaging and advertising). And in my case, 'the client' is an art director/account exec/marketing manager/product manager, etc., etc. and often, all at the same time. My comfort level is based on 30 years of experience and knowing ahead of time how to get where I need to go. In that regard, it's not unlike other types of photography.

I'd prefer to photograph a hamburger over doing a portrait any day of the week. I'd most likely do a great job with the hamburger enjoying every moment of it. (doesn't hurt that I've shot a thousand of them...)The portrait on the other hand would probably end up being 'just ok' and I'd loathe every second of doing it as it would be completely out of my comfort zone. :lol:

Very interesting. I'll stick to people for shooting and burgers for eating. :p

We continue to see the trend of "giving files" on a disc to a customer....ask yourself this..are my customers really ever going to print the images and am I really doing them a disservice in doing so.

We only give low resolution images on a disc of any images that are purchased. We sell portraits and the experience, not a guy with a camera and a laptop burning images. I'm not saying your business model is wrong but I am saying you are leaving lots of money on the table without doing a consultation before and after the shoot and showing your clients what your work will look like on their walls..
