hype cog

I want to put in work in the studio.

Whew, haven't been up here in a min. I'm looking into getting a small portable studio setup. Nothing expensive, but some good equipment. Pretty simple set up really, 1 light source, backdrop etc. It's just I don't know where, or who to cop from. I mean I don't want to buy no crap equipment that'll light my crib on fire you know? Anything good I can get under $800?

Do any of you guys sell prints? What store/ online vendor do you use? I'm planning to set up shop in the near future. However through research looks like I need to buy some $200.00 sum software to get my monitor calibrated. WTF?

Rolls Royce Swag?

So this guy is selling a 1979/80 Rolls Royce for $6000.00. (LOL! I know right? ) This is an older guy who is sick and desperate for cash. I forgot how many miles it has on it. Probably a lemon but this could be a dope project car. Or maybe not? Anybody know anything about Rolls Royces? Should I cop? I wanna make some babies in the back of it! smokeyface

Shooting in low light?

I need some help! I have an offer to shoot an hair show. Pay is negotiable. I haven't agreed yet because I have an 18-55mm lens, and a 5.6 fstop. I want to order a 50mm lens BUT, thats about $300 bucks, and it won't arrive in time. I need to shoot in low light with no flash. Would I be able to shoot any salvageable pics? I have a nikon d3.

The Beach a No No?

So I got a gig, but its at the beach. I read in my manual I believe every time you shoot at the beach you need to get your lens cleaned. Is that true? If so I may have to back out. I don't have any local camera shops around.

Is there even a point for using these in your port anymore? I mean I see less and less of my fav photogs using watermarks and sigs in their ports. No let me rephrase that, I see more successful photogs using less of these, and mostly see amateurs sporting watermarks.
