I need some advice please. I was asked to take photos of some girls at a Dance Recital. I have almost 600 images per child. My ? is, should I just put the pictures on a cd and sell or should I post images on my website and have a price per photo?

If I go cd route, how much is a fair price?

If I go per picture route. How much for 4x6-5x7 & 8x10?

Thank you for any suggestions and or tips.

I lean toward prints. Keep in mind that, if you sell a Cd of images for them to make crappy prints at the corner drugstore, not only will you lose the sales, but those will be your crappy prints that will be shown to their friends?

My intentions are to put on my website and offer a few different sizes. I just didn't know what the best prices to charge for the different sizes. I guess I will figure it out. If they want them bad enough I guess they will buy.
